and the United States Supreme
Court met on common rounds in
disputing the government's con
tention that the gigantic steel cor
poration should be forced to re
linquish control of one of its rail
In a decision, dissented from by
Justices Cardozo, Brandeis and
Stone, the court held that the U.
S. Steel Corp. was not violating
a statute forbidding industries to
own interstate carriers of their
commodities. The decision came
in a test case against the Elgin,
Joliet & Eastern Railroad, 60 per
cent of whose traffic consists of
the products or materials of the
U. S. Steel Corp.
The court held that the 40 per
cent traffic consisting of commodi
ties of other shippers made valid
the claim of the road that is was
independent of the U. S. Steel
Corp. The suit was argued by the
U. S. Steel Corp. corps of fancy
corporation attorneys.
Had the suit been successful it
was the intention of the Depart
ment of Justice to proceed with
similar suits against other steel
corporations who find control of
their transportation system a con
venient method of retaining their
stranglehold on the industry.

DETROIT, Mich., June 5.—Call
avenging .God and
ing upon "an
unmerciful Devil," the Black Le
gion, appropriately called, has
been striking terror into the hearts
of law-abiding citizens of this and
14 other States, according to evi
dence brought out in the investi
gation of the murder of Charles
A. Poole, WPA worker. It is
alleged that Poole, who was not a
member of the Legion, had learned
too much about its activities.
The Black Legion, employing
the methods and aping the out
ward appearance of the Ku Klux
Klan, more than bears out the
terrible though melodramatic pro
phecies of Sinclair Lewis in "It
Can't Happen Here." Fascism,
With all its paraphanalia of anti
unionism, anti-Catholicism, anti
Semitism, intimidation, kidnaping,
flogging and murder, is in the
program of the Black Legion. One
of its alleged purposes, it has
been brought out, is a Black Le
gion dictatorship in the United
Obviously it had become a po
litical force in Michigan, in which
the investigation is centered at
the moment. Evidence has been
offered to prove that mayors,
prosecuting attorneys and otheï
city and state officials, including
large numbers of policemen and
prison guards are included in its
membership. The big fish were
promised political support, while
the smaller fry were threatened
with death unless they joined and
participated in its program of vio
lence and intimidation.
Now it is being "discovered"
that the Black Legion has been
functioning for about three years.
City and state officials have testi
fied that they sign up with all
sorts of organizations during elec
tion campaigns as a means of get
ting votes, and without looking
into these organizations. Others
have said that they were shang
haied to lonely groves and forced
to enter at the point of a gun.
The Black Legion, it is alleged,
has been operating in 15 states,
yet no action has been taken
against the Black 'Legionnaires by
the United States Department of
Justice up to the time of publica
tion. Leading citizens thruout the
United States have indicated the
pressing need for investigation by
the Justice Department, among
them Paul M. Reid, National
Executive Secretary of the Amer
ican League Against War and
Mr. Reid telegraphed Atty. Gen.
Homer S. Cummings on May 27 as
"American League Against War
and Fascism demands immediate
federal investigation and suppres
sion of fascist and terroristic ac
tivities Black Legion in Michigan
and elsewhere."
