Production Require Good TVlll.

fundamentally," Mr. Gbroperss paper
said, "upon good will."
"Good will must be earned. The
only way is which workers may ex
pand defend their rights and interests
is through organization and respon
sible representatives.
"Two fallacies have been so fre
quently repeated as to be accepted by
casual readers and hearers. It is said
that requests for increased wattes
necessitate increase In prices which
increase cost of living1 and in return
results in more wage demands a
vicious circle which leads to no pro
gress. High wages have invariably
resulted In constructive changes bene
ficial to workers and have resulted in
increased proauciion. tt
The second misstatement used to
the discredit of wage earners is that1
output is deliberately restricted by
the organized labor movement and by
limitation of hours of work. In many
Industries, production Is below pre
war volumne. This Is not due to
labor, but to unsettled trade condi
tions, managerial policies and high
coats of raw materials. Wage earners
as well as employers, are anxious
to end this peried.'

Valley Farmers
Ask For Market
And Fair Play
Say Their Tomatoes Are as
Good as California s,
and Cheaper.
H. A. Shannon, a farmer who lives
down the valley. Is wanting to know
why be and scores of other farmers
can't find a market in El Paso for
their tomatoes.
Shannon brought 20 bushels of fine,
high grade, borne grown tomatoes to
town with him Saturday morning. He
and b:s neighboring farmers often
bring Just such a load to town and
offer them to grocery stores tor sale
at 2 or 4 cents a pound.
There Is no market for home grown
tomatoes In El Paso, according to the
farmers. "See, these tomatoes are
firm, big and as fine as any Calif or-
nla tomatoes you ever saw." said
shannon, exhibiting them.
"We have Deen tow By srroeerytnen
that our tomatoes are not fit tnr any
thing but bog feed, and some farmers
have had to feed theirs to hogs, una
ble to get a penny a pound for them.
Thousands of pounds oX Just such to
matoes are rotting In the valley right
now because we can't sell them.
"Grocers have told me that they
would rather pay 6 cents a pound tor
California tomatoes and sell them for
10 cents than to pay 3 cents for valley
tomatoes and sell them for less than
10 cents."
