MILLER, Editor HANS RASMUSSEN, Business Manager The Senate investigation into the practices of the mod ammunitions manufacturers has quite a startling effect upon large numbers of innocent people who have been taught to believe that the arms industry is a business cramed full themselves obligated to write some editorials expressing their astonishment over the stinking pool of filth, graft and corruption that has been opened before them. But already strings are being pulled and the investiga tion has barely started. Already the Roosevelt government itself is auite busy, and rather onenly so, to stop some of Thursday, September 20, 1934 THE ARMS CESSPOOL ern Some are now shocked of patriotism of the purest color, and due to that fact even some of the kept newspapers feel eion governments are nrotestino- and last but not least the eign governments aie protesting and last but not least the more disturbing revelations from being published. For most powerful financial backers of the munitions industry, , Chase National Bank, etc., are putting on pressure to smother j Desiring not to em barrass candidates in coming elections," says a United Press dispatch "the committee decided to postpone such disclos-| ures ' And pointing upon documents m front of horn, Stephen Raushenbush, secretary of the Senate committee, says: "If these cables were publishes it might mean actual destruction of life and property." Meaning war. And thel president of the DuPont trust seconds the motion: **I agree! that they should not go into the record." The great munitions manufacturers are not separate and apart from the great basic industries the great banks and iroin ui« gre<iL uasic muubLries, une uaiihs» <uiu the government ; on the contrary they are inextricably in tertwined with the wealthy capitalists and ruling class poll-! ticials. These are not "merchants of death" standing apart from the government and the decisive sections of the ruling class; they are simply that part of the ruling class whose merchandise happens to be lethel instruments. No effort of Senator Nye can change that situation, can make it appear that the du Ponts are somehow different than the rest of the ruling class and its government. Tehy are all implicated— the Moro-an and Rockerteller hanks the II S Steel the War ine Morgan ana KOCKen euer DanKs, ine U. ö. öieei, me war Department and other parts of the governmental apparatus. Mr. Nye and his committee would try to make it appear otherwise, but no worker should be fooled. Nye and the capitalist politicians sense the great anti-war spirit that is abroad in the land, the anti-war sentiment that pervades m-llinn<i of firmpm and lower middle class neonle the sec millions Of farmers ana lower rmaaie class people, me sec Lion of the population whose interests Nye and his commit tec pretended to represent. To them Nye says that he has discovered the roots OI war—a special group of wicked cap italists who manufacture arms. To solve the problem he important testimony. Although Senator Nye is crying that he will not let the 1 commission be "gagged," the pressure is most effective. Nye himself has promised not to ask the DuPont brothers the' extent of their political contributions. u * * * * proposes that the government take over munitions ture. -p , .. » But every worker should ask himself the question: Are not munitions made for armies and are not armies the means ...... Did not the War Department know all about the manu facture of these aims. Did Hot use these arms to kill Nicaraguan workers and peasants, to collect the debts of the Chase Natl. Bank in Haiti to fight the Chinese Revolution, yes, to shoot down the strikers at the textile mills and docks The workers of the United States must see this traffic one must do away with the system that breeds war, the cap^ italist system, and set up a revolutionary workers' govern ment, a Soviet Government. Only thus can that cesspool of international intrigue and corruption—a tiny whiff of which the arms investigation afforded US—be done away with. of carrying out government policies? of the United States? * * * * The Producers News urges all workers and other anti war fighters to demand in ringing tones that the munitions investigation be carried on without concealment. Every single document must be brought to light. The name of every individual connected with the manufacture and trade of munitions must be given publicity. Workers should demand that the hearings be broadcast the radio network. Let us see where the taxes wrung over out of the masses go. Let us see who profits by the sale of gas Workers must use this occasion to demand a 100 per cent tax on munitions profits—these vast funds to go for un employment relief and insurance, for bread and not for bullets. Demand an embargo on all shipments of munitions to fascist Germany and to Japan for war on the Soviet Union! Give the most energetic support to the forces which are fighting the munitions makers and the system of which they are a part! Support the Second U. S. Con gress Against War and Fascism in Chicago, September 28, 29 and 30! Get your organization to send delegates! PROFITS A survey of net profits of 224_corporations during the second quarter of 1934, compiled by Eastman, Dillon & Co., New York brokers, showed that aggregate net income of the group was $214,676,000, compared with $156,679,000 in the second quarter of 1933. Companies operating in the heavy industries showed considerable gain in profits, accord ing to this report. il VAGRANCY TRIAL BY TOM JOHNSON It was stifling in the court loom. To the left of the center aisle a half hundred whites, the women in summer dresses, he men with shirt sleeves rolled high and neckbands open, lolled listlessly on the straight-backed benches. Beads of sweat slowly gathered on their temples, grew to drops and then rolled down their cheeks. Some mopped their faces with handker chiefs already wringing wet ; oth vainly stirred the close hot air with palmetto fans, lo the right sWeat poured likewise from the gleaming faces of a smaller num oer of blacks, segregated frorn the whites by the wide aisle.

Even the space between the last row of seats and the wall was led with standing White men. The crowd leaned forward, tense, ex pectant. They had been waiting for this.

These men are charged with vagrancy. They were arrested after that meeting in the Park last Thursday. This here Pearson feller is ore of that bunch of Yankee Reds that have come down here from New York to teach us hoV to treat our niggers and to raise general hell. The Fenris nigger is a local boy who took up with 'em. Last week they plastered hand bills all ovah town announcin' a gatherin in the Center Park, and Thursday after noon a crowd of three, four hun dred niggers met up ihen-e by the monument.

The prosecutor's soft voice rose and he turned to face the crowded benches. He no longer spoke to tbe j udge alone; with an expansive &es tu r e, he took the whole court, Toom into ^ confidence.

A procession of beefy cops, sev era l in plain-clothes, passed from the benches to the witness chair and back again. Yes, they had been present at the meeting and i had followed the crowd to the Com- j munity Chest. What had Pearson sa id at the meeting? Talked against the gov'ment—Said that niggers were as good as white folks—Said the CommUNists stood for social equality—Said that they .aimed to take this country over fer the niggers—Had they ever s een him before the meeting.

The Negroes sat up straight* r leaning forward with hand clenched fists and defiant eyes. The Judge forgot his drawl and broke in swiftly, angrily: That'll be enough of insultin' our police in my co'rt, young man. J Ust you watch your step and keep to the point in your questioning I'll have you arrested right here for con'empt of co't!" Fenris took the stand and Harry questioned him. He looked stiff u or and awkward sitting there with his great hands hanging loosely be tween his knees, but he wasn't flustered and he wasn't scared.
