It is a combination of the Croix de Loraine and the cross of the Greek Catholic church, both of which are symbolic of charity and help to humanity. The combination was effected to be the symbol of the hope of civilization. The emblem of the world's fight against tuberculosis was adopted in October, 1902, when the internation al association met in Berlin, upon suggestion of Dr. G. Sersiron of Paris. Since when the Nation- al Tuberculosis association was formed, the double-barred cross has ! been carried into the remotest cor ner of the United States as an em ! blem of hope. I It would be difficult to tell all the I things which this beautiful emblem collsiderad by the world's greatest artists to contain the most perfect proportions and to be the most strik ing figure ever used for symbolic I purposes, has accomplished. It has been lifted aloft in the greatest health crusade the world has ever witnessed; it has created more than 600 institutions in which cures have been brought about; it has promoted legislation which has lessened the danger of the disease; it has co upe rau-d with all humanitarian or- ganuations in stamping out the plague: it has provided 43,000 beds for tuberculosis patients: it has her alded international gatherings; it appears on the headdress and arm band of the visiting nurse; it has helped to organize over a thousand anti-tuberculosis associations in the country; millions of school children over the country have learned health rules under its guidance. It has been the> beacon in well planned ed ucational campaigns, exhibits, clinics; it is recognized by physicians, health officials, scientists and laymen. It has reduced the number of tubercu losis patients throughout the coun try at a greater ratio vpar by year as it carries its message. *■ The double-barred red cross is found also on the Christmas seal, thus carrying the approval of the United States government.' Six bil lion of these little seals must be sold if the cross is to continue to hold its hard won supremacy in humanity's greatest problem—the conquest of tuberculosis. Smoke CHALLENGE 10* Cigar.

WORKERS PARTY TO ORGANIZE IN DECEMBEI NEW YORK CITY, Nov. 22.— More than a dozen organizations, representing approximately 50,000 members, will meet together in con vention during the Christmas holi days, in this city, to organize the Workers' party of America. This gathering will be the result of several months of negotiations between the representatives of the various organizations involved, and constitutes the first big effort to unite all the elements that have left or been expelled fVom the Socialist party during the past three years. The leading elements in the nego tiations were the American Labor Alliance, Elmer T. Allison, secre tary, 201 W. 13th street, New York City, and the Workers' Council of the United States, Louis J. Engdahl, •secretary, 80 E. 11th street, New York City. Representing the American Labor Alliance in the negotiations were James P. Cannon, Jay Lovestone and A. Bittleman; for the Workers' Council, in addition to Engdahl, Alexander Trachtenberg and J. B. Salutsky, and for its affiliated or ganizations, the Jewish Socialist Federation, George Wishnak, Paul Juditz and I. B. Bailin, and for the German Workers' Educational So ciety, Ludwig Lore, editor of the Volksseitung, and Louis F. Wolf. Among the organizations affiliated with the American Labor Alliance, in addition to its English member ship, that will participate in the Christmas convention are the Finnish Socialist Federation, the Jewish Workers' Federation, the Scandina vian Socialist Federation, the Greek Socialist Union, the Irish American Labor League, the Hungarian Work ers' Federation, the Italian Workers' Federation, and others. Invitations to the convention are being sent to the Proletarian party, with headquarters at Detroit, Mich., to the Bohemian Socialist Federa tion, at Chicago, 111., that recently withdrew from the Socialist party, while special appeals will be made to the left wing elements remaining in the Italian Socialist Federation, the Socialist Labor party, the Jugo slav Socialist Federation, and other similar organizations. The call for the convention out lines the conditions confronting the workers in this and other countries, declaring that: "At this critical moment we must have an organization that will "not only valiantly defend the workers, but will also wage an aggressive bat tle for the abolition of capitalism. Only a revolutionary workers' polit ical party can fulfill this task. "Such a party will and must grow out of the unity of all political groups revolting against their old reactionary leaderships, unable or unwilling to meet the new condi tions. It is not necessary to create this desire for unity. It is already a living reality, grown out of the very struggle of the masses during the years since the ending of the world war and the inauguration of Soviet rule in Russia."

TOO MUCH IDLE TIMBERLAND Portland, Ore. Nor. 21< United States produces more than half of the entire lumber cut ot the world, and uses D 5 per cent of that amount right here at home. said Col. W. B. Greeley, chief of the forest service, who passed through Portland recently from the forest fire conference at Mather Field, I*l-1 ifornia. . , ] "The exhaustion of our timber j supply is coming about, not because j we have used our forests freely, but] because we have failed to use our timber-grow in g land. The problem in a nutshell is the enormous area of forest land which has been so [ logged and burned that it is produc ing little or nothing. We have more than 80,0(10,000 acres, an area great er than all the forests of France, Belgium, Holland. Denmark, Ger many, Switzerland, Spain and Por tugal, which have been denuded to the point of absolute idleness so far as the production of any timber of commercial value is concerned. We have other enormous areas of cut-over land now growing but a fraction of the amount of timber which they might produce. And we are adding to these areas of idle or largely idle land from 10,000,000 to 15,000,000 acres every year, as de structive logging and still more de structive burning progress. In west ern Oregon and Washington alone it is estimated that there are 1,050, --000 acres of denuded land which but for fire would be producing timber. "This situation," the forester points out, "can not long continue without grave consequences. If we are to remain a nation of wood us ers, we must become a nation of wood growers. By some means or other we must see to it that forest lands not needed for agriculture are not allowed to lie idle, but are kept at work growing timber. In 1920 Washington led all other states in lumber cut; with Oregon second, these two states producing over eight and a half billion feet board measure. If the Pacific North west is to maintain its lead in lum ber production it must keep out fire and put its idle forest lands to work growing timber. "Where Americans need more for ests," states Col. GKreeley, "is large ly on these 80,000,000 timber-denud ed acres which could be made pro ductive 'again with proper attention and protection against fires," Some ;>f the chief reasons why these for ests are needed are as follows: "Our manufacturing centers are drawing at an enormous rate upon our timber supply—from two to four times as fast per capita as the coun try at large. "Our railroads require 125,000,000 wooden crossties annually to main tain their roadbeds in fit condition and take care of new construction. "Our average American uses 125 pounds of paper a year—made large ly from wood—and the growing cir culation of our newspapers and mag azines is increasing that very gener ous per capita allowance. "Our average well-kept farms, us ing the Upper Mississippi valley as an instance, require 2,000 board feet rf lumber annually for repairs and "The fruit shipments from the We natchee, Yakima and Hood River valleys alone, £or marketing, re quire 25,000,000 boxes of five board feet each, every year." "One Big Union" Plan Rejected in Germany Chicago, Nov. 26.—Sky-shooters and bubble-blowers, who talk "one big union," and want workers thrown into a jumbled mass, will hardly capitalize a recent vote on this question by food-producing unions in Germany. The unions are the bakery work ers, butchers and the brewery-mill ing workers, raving a combnied membership of 173,000. But 69, --017 was interested enough to vote on a plan that trade unionists in the United States and Canada are told will save the world. Charles F. Hohmann, editor of the Bakers' Journal, published in this city, reprints figures on this election, which was held throughout Germany on October 9. The vote shows, he says, that "it has not com': true what the advocates of the •imalgamation have always contend ed, tha . the masses would be strong ly in favor of it." He says that the lack of interest among workers in his own craft "was simply phenom enal." "In one district, where 'great en thusiasm' was being artificially cre ated, about one-fifth of the member ship participated," although every effort was made by the one big union advocates to get out the vote.

Nowhere was there to be found any enthusiasm or love for the new form of organization. Only a few of our members are its con vinced supporters, and the great I mass seems to be absolutely indif-! ferent to the question." Editor Hohmann intimates that flamboyant convention declarations do not necessarily express the sen timents of a union's membership. He shows that since 1908 the German bakery workers, have unanimously declared in conventions on four dif ferent occasions for the industrial form of organization. "The result of the recent referen dum seems to indicate, however, that but a small part of the membership favors the same." he says. Let us each and all resolve to give greater support to patronizing of union-made goods and such places as display shop and store cards. If we but realize the necessity of doing our full duty in this, splendid results will accrue to this branch of our movement. Bill: "Ullo, 'Emery!
