BRI CD m 5* NURSES PICKET HOSPITAL IN BROOKLYN NEW YORK.—Officials of the Israel Zion Hospital, Brooklyn, are attempting to I force nurses of the hospital to sign a pe tition against the reinstatement of Dorothy Sklar and Sally Kahn, two discharged nurses. The officials' action came after several days of mass picketing in front of the hospital by nurses and sympathizers mobilized by the Hospital Workers League. Miss Sklar was discharged several months ago for refusing to order nurses un der her charge to give up their off hours. Miss Kahn was fired for housing Miss Sklar during the period of her unemployment. The Hospital Workers League is plan ning to hold street meetings and issue 25, 000 leaflets to rally the neighborhood orga nizations against the bureaucracy of the hospital authorities which is endangering the welfare of the patients.

LYNCHERS SEEK LIFE OF FRAMED NEGRO PRINCESS ANNE, Md.—The Eastern shore of Maryland, where many Negro workers have been lynched in the past two years, has been swept by another wave of lynch sentiment following the arrest of James Holland, a young Negro farm hand, framed on a charge of attempting to crim inally assault Mrs. Anna Waddy, white wo man on whose farm he was employed.

SCHOOL CHILDREN SUFFER AS TEACHERS' PAY IS CUT By a Farmer Correspondent HARTVILLE, Mo.—The wages of rural teachers have been slashed during the last three years and many teachers are without jobs in Wright county. The children are not so wide-awake as formerly which is a direct reflection of the bad economic con ditions of the farmers. A county nurse examined the chil drens' teeth, takes their weight etc. but there is never any money on hand to pro vide doctor's care. Then what is the use of these examinations? Half of the chil dren in school are underweight. It is known that 75 per cent of the school children in the state of Missouri are defective in some way. This is rich and advanced America. I.L.D. FREES 18 IN ILLINOIS CHICAGO.—Determined activity un der the leadership of the International La bor Defense has forced the release on bail of all but two of 20 militant workers who had been held in Illinois prisons as a result of their militant activities in Hillsboro, and on the South side of Chicago.

S.

This, together with an in tensified struggle far relief and against foreclosures and evictions, is our answer to the sheriff Marshal county and his gang of drunken Legionnaires who raied ouir meetings and brutally beat up Julius Walstad and six other mili tant leaders. Knute Walstad, Clarence Sharp! and Carl Ilmoni will be the chief Walstad K. Walstad fce Tonir speakers on this tour. and Sharp are independent candi dates far governor and congress man, respectively. Their candidacy has been endorsed by the Commu nist Party. Ilmoni is an instruc tor in the Farm School on Wheels, An attempt on the part of States Attorney Babcock and some of the leaders of the Biritton Legion post to draw in the Sisseton post of the Legion in the fascist drive against tile workers and farmers, failed miserably. After the Biritton post asked for a joint meeting at Sisse ton, they failed to show up. Bab cock rallied against "Communism" and urged the Legionnaires to crush the movement of the work ers and fairmers in South Dakota, "If they are law-breakers why can't you handle them?" asked al Legionaire. Babcock had no an other swer. "You Tell Us' "What is Communism? Legion rank-and-filena asked Bab cock. "Suppose you tell us, so we will know what it is we have to fight." Babcock remained silent, and some one moved that the Le gionnaires invite Julius Walstad or Dolph De Arment to speak to the meeting to explain Commu nism. In the end, the Sisseton post re fused to mobilize for the fascist drive. On Monday, August 27 there was supposed to have been a state-wide mobilization of Legionnaires on a farm near Britton. They didn't dare meet openly in town for fear of swift reprisal by the angered farmers and workers. Legion lead urged an attack on the Farm School at Monson's Grove but the meeting waveired.

SEED SUPPLY FOR FORAGE CROPS MUCH SMALLER THIS YEAR WASHINGTON.—Seed crops of most of the grasses and legufes used for hay 'will be much smaller this year. Preliminary estimates made by the U. a Department of Agriculture from reports by grow ers and country shoppers of these seeds give a pessimistic outlook re garding the 1934 production. Much of the seed already has been har vested and is past help by rains. The timothy seed crop may be the smallest on record. Production is estimated to be only about one fifth of the small crop of last year. It is estimated that only about one third as many acres have been har- _ vested as in 1933, with the yields slightly less than one-half of last year. Timothy seed carry-over is unusually small because of the, short crops of 1932 and 1933. The crop of Kentucky bluegrass seed is about one-fourth that of last year, due chiefly to the dnrouth W1 * reezes ' a c °J d crop wag virtually a com plete fail ure ^ Nebraska, Iowa and Kan sas.

In Louisiana, chief pro during State for white clover seed, acreaee was as larpe as last year but them heavy rains ent the quantity harvested for seed so that the produc'ion was somewhat sfaller than in 1933.

And some of their chil dren were not very grown up at that, towards the last of the war they took them awfully young. To day there are large organizations of just widows alone in these for eign countries. Those women, ac tually broke down and cried when they reported the intense suffering caused by the war. They told ho*w they had one big hope during the war while they were working on their farms do ing their husbands' and sons' work. Even though some of their own family was slaughtered, they were hoping that at least they would be able to throw their own exploit ers overboard, and put the gov ernment in the hands of their own working class. If they had had the government in their own hands, they would be building up better conditions rather than going down. The rich men who rule these coun tries were afraid of what the re turning soldiers might do when they came back from the front line trenches. Therefore the ex ploiters called for help from the American capitalists who saw to it that an enormous army of Amer ican soldiers, were sent across to save European capitalists. They were afraid of revolution, that is what they were afraid of.
