"The revelations made "by Carl
Ackennan of the revolutionary origin
of the steel workers' strike warn the
American people that they should not
necessarily regard a strike in these
times as a simple dispute between
employers and workmen as to wages,
hours or conditions of work. It may
actually be a movement in the gen
era! war of the revolutionists to des
troy the republic and to set up some
new form of government, or no gov
ernment, in its place. The revolu
' tionists are not agreed on any form
f government, for they include so
cialists, syndicalists who are the I
W. W., communists who are bolshe-
Tists, and anarchists, who want no
government at all. Their one point
of agreement is on desire to destroy
ine existing government. That done,
they would continue tfie revolution,
each faction striving br force and
ruthless bloodshed to become, su
preme. That is the history of revolu
tion for centuries past."
Organized labor appears to have
een spoiled during the war. Work
men those in the shipyards have
been drawing fat salaries and feast
Ins on the best in the land. To get
them to work and not interfere with
the speedy prosecution of the war
they were granted most anything
they asked by the administration.
The soldiers were drafted and com
pelled to obey commands; the steel
workers and others engaged in war
work were petted and pampered by
the administration given the best
of working conditions, and short
hours and the majority of them
rode to and from their work in auto
mobiles. That was the distinction drawn
between the soldier and the man who
was, for some minor defects, or no
defect at all, permitted to remain at
home while his neighbor was hur
ried across the water to face the
German cannon. Had war-work lab
orers been drafted and been compel
led to work under orders similar to
those provided for the combat troops,
possibly there would not now be so
much unrest and so many strikes.
These are times that try the sta
bility of a government, and never
did we need a man with the courage
of a Roosevelt as we need him today.
The Boston policemen's strike proves
Thomas Nelson, who relinquished
his Job at Astoria rather than dis
miss Huttula, a foreigner who was
accused of being a slacker, s;.yg
there is nothing in Huttiial's actions
from preventing him from beam
ing a' citizen of the United States.
. it Is said that Huttula registered for
the draft, 'but he had conscientious
scruples against going to war. There
is the case in a nutshell: 'Nelson
says Huttula did not recall his V. S.
citizenship papers to avoid the draft,
but "because he had scruples against
going to war." If he refuses to fight
for the country in which he makes
his home, he should never he admit
ted as a citizen. The United States
has just been deporting a number of
fellows like Huttula.

When Jose Wagemans, 23 years old,

He was only a private when he
was mustered out at Antwerp, Au

decorations for bravery to cover his
entire chest. Among these are the
Belgian military medal with six

tinguished bravery In six great bat

medal of the Battalion of Death, said

The Town Garden
Many of the gardens of Grants
Pass are made on soils that are de
ficient in humus, and as a result
after they are irrigated and cultivated
a little while the soil gets very hard,
just a little below the surface, nnd
grows very slow.
One of the best remedies Is to
plant a crop in the early fall to turn
under in the spring. Right now is
the time to put it In. Sow vetch
with rye, oats or wheat, preferably
rye, at the rate of 0 pounds of vetch
and 50 pounds of rye per aire. For
a garden COxfiO use about 12 pounds
6t vetch and 10 pounds rye.
You will he surprised at the effect
of this on- your soil. You will get
better resultsfrom this than you will
from .the use of commercial fertill
zers if you plant early and get a good
growth to turn under In the spring.
Do not delay the seeding.
