Published weekly by the Toiler Publishing Association Telephone: Harvard 3639 The Picket Line THE minimum wage law recently enacted by the Non-partisian League members in the North Dakota Legislature has been held up by a court injunction. This is further pYoof (isn't it?) that the way to better the conditions of the work ers is to have laws passed. LLOYD George has decided on peace with Soviet Russia since "The Council of Action" told him he couldn't have war. British labor is the British Lion. SAMUEL Gompers recently delivered him self of the statement that he did not know whe ther his Federation could "fit in as one of tlv parts of what is called the international labor movement." Which is quite a compliment to the international labor movement. AT the very time Secretary Colby was com posing the White House attack on the Bolshe viki as tyrants who persecute the Russian people, the inhabitans of Santo Domingo were appealing to journalists throughout North and South Amer ica to petition Woodrow Wilson for relief from the bloody and illegal rule of American military forces in their island. SEATTLE maintains its reputation of having the most advance central labor council in the country. This body has gone on record by un animous vote to oppose any effort to aid Poland in its war on Soviet Russia. It has appointed a "committee of action" to make plans in case an emergency arises. They have also called on Gom pers to define the attitude of the A. F. of L. on the question. This last is wasted effort, how ever, as the attitude of Gompers is already de fined. He's for anything the American cap italists want. WHILE the Red Army hammers at the gates of Warsaw, the the Upper Crust cries out that civilization is threatened. But we are not dist urbed. YOUR civilization, gentlemen, is of no concern to us. SOVIET RUSSIA'S terms drawn up for Po land to sign are reported to include disarmament of the capitalists and their supporters, arming of the Polish workers and the organization of a commission to execute the terms of the armistice composed of delegates from trades unions, indu strial workers and farm laborers. Fair enough! "WORKERS' earnings gain", says a head line. Also, the workers' spendings. The last move than the first. THE New York Times says the New York street car men who lost out fn the arbitration are relying on Mayor Hylan. God help 'em! THE Workers of all the World now realize Soviet Russia represents the interests of the workers everywhere. Soviet Russia is showing the way to Freedom to the workers of all other countries. Soviet Russia is blazing the path that will bring the end of the long struggle of the workers against low wages, long hours, the amassing of great fortunes by the few out of the toil of the masses, the oppression of these masses by the use of the courts, the police, and the armies when the workers strike to improve their position.
