If the wealthy Mentor this country were As willing now to sacrifice their millions and their positions for their country As these veterans were to sacrifice their very lives the depression would be Over in thirty of Hope sources of Radiant Hope Are those business men who have operated without profit or even at a loss that the might keep men employed. Also those Labouring men who strike in sympathy not for the purpose of bringing better conditions for themselves but to better tile plight of their fellow workers when they Well know that in so doing they run the risk of loosing their own conflagration the two capitalistic groups the nazi and fascist in Austria Are now lighting Between themselves which proves still further that a there is no Honor among it was Only a Short time ago that the socialists of Austria were being mowed Down by government fascist troops Jed nazi troops. Today we find these same two factions who Only a Short time ago fought the socialists killing each other. Why the sudden change the fascists led by doll Fiss and the nazi led by various leaders Are i he tools of different nation. The fascists Are the tools of Italy and the nazi Are the tools of Germany. The socialists were the patriots of Austria and had not sold out to any foreign Power. The Nadi and the fascists therefore had a common enemy the socialists or the patriots of Austria. Having Superior military equipment these two groups soon put an end to the socialistic Power in Austria. At least for the time being now the nazi and fascist parties Are fighting each other Over the spoils. Out off the ashes one Hopes a new Austria will arise built by the socialists.

The facts will soon be ready for publication and it is hoped that no More Well meaning will contribute Money to these politicians until they have an Opportunity to see both sides of this important question. In talking to Many of those who originally supported this proposal both physically and financially we find that Many feel that they were fleeced of both time and Money. The local sponsors of this proposal intimate that this proposal was original with them while As a matter of fact this same proposal has been a Law in the state of South Dakota for Over a year and the head of the retail merchants association of that state says that it is the a most Damnable thing that Ever hit the state of South the supreme court of that state in handing Down a decision passed on it constitutionally but said that they could see no reason for calling it a Gross income and Dollar turnover tax unless it was to deceive because in reality it was a Gross earnings tax and a sales tax. Newspaper censorship by ail Means no. It would be Lolly for governor Olson to desire anything like it. The reactionary newspapers and their red scare editorials Are doing More than could be done by any Ether method to help the working class out of this terrible mess. Newspapers Haven to realized that the radios have Given the a Chance to hear both guides and Are now thinking for themselves. Yet these newspapers go on with the same old line of bunk ignoring the intelligence of the . The a kept press with its Chain system of editors or copyists have been crying for martial Law. Now they have it now they done to want it. The employers wanted the militia to stand guard Over their trucks so As to Force the strikers Back to work at terms of their own choosing. The governor had an Ace up his sleeve when he gave the citizens of Minneapolis Protection which was his solemn duty at the same time being fair with the strikers by the Rule of not allowing trucks that were not absolutely necessary to move. The employers have Only themselves to blame. Governor Olson invites their criticism. After All father Haas and commissioner Dunnigan have Laid Down the peace terms and not governor Oison.
