Fellow-workers and all slaves, stay away from
Sweet-Home, La., Front. Local 275 on strike. The
strike was called to keep one of the Company's old
tricks off, trying to break the Solidarity and driv

But, as always, the I. W. W. got wise and beat
them to it. The job is tied up right, not a -Ilan
working. So all workers help keep it so by staying
away untill we drive the boss into submission, and

Iet us recall a few years; let us go back to the
joyous days of your maidenhood, back to the time
when he courted you.
fHow happy you were! flow bright the future
loked to you. How you planned and talked of the
little home you would have.
Hllere you would have your dower garden, there,
dlown by the' spring. yout would build a beautiful
arbor. andl the lest room you would have nite-ly fur
nislhed for mother and father when they came to see
y, it. l)id not these or similar thoughts present them.
to yon ?
'Tm true. yan saw poverty on every aide. You aaw
twe toiling mothers of the' Holuthland slaving 'neath
the burning sun in .cotton, fields or factories. You
saiw the children of the dear old South working in
fields or miills when they should have been in school.
O(n every hand you saw poverty and all its aecom
panying evils.
But "John is not like other men, he will provide for
mn. better than father ever did for mother," you said.
Then came years and years of nerve racking toil
andl anguish, years in which the fear of starvation
haunted you night and day.
These were the years in which you almost lost hope,
and optinlisam all bhut vanished.
lBut these were the years in which you discovered
all was not right. You wondered why some did all
the work and had nothing. while others did nothing
and~had everything. These were the years in which
you grew resentful at the undeserved abuse heaped
upon you and yours. These were also the years in
which the race saving spirit of rebellion had its birth
within your l~tantt, but you did not know this spirit.
so you vented it on poor .John.
You held the individual as being responible for
your a tnl ition. You did not know that it was and
is this inxcr, Sshxtte ,,[ of soci4y we are living under.
