The Winslow Mail. SINGLE COPIES, TEN CENTS GIVE CREDIT TO WHOM CREDIT IS DUE Editor Winslow Mail: Dear Sir: Through your publica tion, we wish, in behalf of the Fed erated Shop Crafts, to express in a feeble yet truthful manner, our ap preciation and gratitude for the quick and solidified response to the call to arms to protect our Consti tution, as w r ell as the most beautiful Flag, that plays in the God-given breezes of the whole world. The good people of Winslow said "Yes, we are with you," not by word only but by action; and their con tinuity of action in support of their word from the beginning, naturally creates a feeling of confidence in us that the people of. this immediate vicinity realize that the time is at hand when the producers of the ne cessities of life, as well as those en gaged in the transportation and pioper distribution thereof, are en titled to a living wage under condi tions that will enable us to ever point to the Stars and Stripes with pride and smilingly proclaim that it is the United States Flag. We love it; we honor it; we will continue to fight for it. It is our Flag; we re fuse to allow it to be placed in the front windows of the present day money-changers and profiteers. Und er this Flag we gladly and cheerful y responded to every call for its protection during the recent World War. Today we find it is being used un awfuly, unconstitutionally, inasmuch as the profiteers of this and other nations are being allowed to advise our administrative officers to use military force if necessary to com pel producers and other workers to accept a wage and working condi tion that will ultimately mean the lownfall of this nation. We wish to say to the people of Winslow—you are not alone. We jet reports from all parts of the United States npt given out by the daily press. Your kind support and nighly commendable response as sures us that your “Radio" is work ing; you have tuned in along with he balance of the good American citizens of the United States. We find the same spirit of cooperation exists all along the line, in most every town and hamlet throughout this Nation. Allow us to again thank you for your kindness.

Metal prices are increasing gradu ally, freight rates have been reduced and labor conditions are good.. The Pittman Act has helped save silver mining during this critical pe riod and generally reduced cost of operation and price of materials is aiding in the resumption of gold mining. Increased use of copper by our own people is the surest way of helping put this greatest of our western metals on its feet. The utlook for lead and zinc is also most favorable. Summarizing mining reports, the West can feel thankful that its met al industry is again returning to Torino 1 conditions. With a minimum of government and state interference with private industry and a reduc tion in taxation burdens, mining stands a chance of again employing ( ts ten of thousands of workmen at god wages.

Iu spite of the wild rumors of troubles elsewhere that have gone broadcast, there has been no trouble here. It was reported that, soldiers had been asked for to protect prop erty in Winslow but there has at no time been any occasion for bringing them here and we are confident no such condition will arise. The local boys are too sincere and serious and have too much respect for the rights of others to jeopardize their posi tion by any unlawful conduct. o CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR IS HERE THIS WEEK <* Charles B.
