W a a we Are incl l Rio a hit i cd the enquirer hints of retaliation from republicans against to to for its a i it i to president Roosevelt should he fail of election this fall. Such threats arc not Apt to frighten the leaders of i political action. They rather will serve to awaken the rank and tile of All labor to the necessity of seeing to it that or. Roosevelt and candidates supporting his policies do not fail of election. Phe Ltd leaders Are Well aware of what the reactionary top leadership of the republicans would do to Many of the my Cial gains made tinder or. Roosevelt whether they Are opposed in the election or not if they gain office. The present efforts by sen. Robert a. Taft to Aid the wrecking of Price control Bis own pet being rents is a wartime example. Cio has not tied itself to any party. Reactionary democrats will get the same treatment As reactionary republicans. Several already have. It to is As the enquirer suggests should be labors proper course judging candidates on their records. There happens to be a Large number of top republicans with bad labor records.

A let them live in the slums did you read the stories in the daily papers about the Battle of Indian Hill one group wants to Cut up some Lille land into one and two acre plots and bund houses. The other group wants no Boom it wants Indian Olill to remain the quaint 4�?~village that it is today a Village in which quite a Lew dwellers have 300-acre a a Back Yards. Its Indian Hill s business what it wants to do and we mention the incident for Only one reason. Editor Hulbert Taft of the times Star is one of the leaders of the group which i trying to keep outsiders from moving in and enjoying the pure air and Cool breezes of that Choice spot. Editor Taft you May recall is also one of the bitterest enemies of decent Public housing for poor families who live in Cincinnati a Basin where the air often is neither pure nor Cool and where Many children Haven to even got a Back Yard of 300 Square feet to play in. Let them eat cake said a famous Queen. A a let them live in the slums says a great editor. Uncle Sam has Quot bossed business All his life editor ote this article is but working unreasonably Long hours at pitiful wages to encourage collective bargaining. Profits Good a a has All this government control been disastrous to business a the Only answer to that is to Point to our National wealth and our general Prosperity and standards of living. No other country has approached the u. S. A in that respect. A a should we have More or less government regulation of business in the future a that s a Tough question to answer. However we must not think that this country is forced to chose Between completely unhampered private Enterprise and Overall government regulation. We emphasize the individual initiative and Freedom of action in this country we must maintain As much of that Liberty As we can consistent with the Public welfare. But let s remember i he Law on v pamphlet. A the american f a a Buskens Freedom or government of troll written by Max u Ell s. Sitar. And published by the Public 4 pairs oni Mittee. A non profit Edura tonal organization with Headquarters in sen 1 or b . A a when did government control Over business Start a it began Way Back when this country was born. In colonial towns a merchant had to buy the a Freedom of the City a before he could do business. Trade with the indians was a monopoly. So were most ferrying Docking and Turnpike rights. A a has there Ever been a time when business was �?o100 per cent free in this country a never. America has always regulated economic activities to some degree. Business asked it q business men Ever want any government interference a yes. Business wanted Protection against unfair competitors who passed off their goods As another. They wanted Patent Laws to protect a Man s i ution right to profit from his invent a there is no reason for a Tion. Small business men wanted a deadlock on this controversy if Protection against trusts and eve to quote Stewart a the advocates Ery kind of Industry wanted pro 0f Enterprise on the one hand Toction through Tariff Walls and advocates of government against cheaper made goods from Jpilar Ning. On the other will seek lure. There devolves upon him other nations. Honest business in arrangement incorporating the by virtue of his office a solemn right to seize court san Quot Yesav if a u. S. Court had Given a decision that it was illegal for the government to take Over a Plant such As Montgomery wards you can rest assured the newspapers would have told the news in big headlines. But when a u. S. Court fed give a decision defending the government s right to do so. The newspaper hid the Case on the Back pages. It happened in Louisville on May 9 of this year. Judge Mac a Vinford of the u. S. District court there in a Case involving the Ken Rad tube and lamp corporation held As follows with reference to the right of the president to take Over industries a i further conclude that without an. Act of congress., there was sufficient authority by the terms of the Constitution itself to justify the action of the president this government always has and in this Case. The president has it always will have some say Over no Power to declare War. That our economic life. Belongs exclusively to Congress a a what is the reasonable so but when a War has been declared and is actually existing his functions As command Erin chief become of the highest importance and his operations in that connection Are entirely beyond the control of the Legisla putting Avery Quot in a nutshell Quot j Here a to lib Best example we be seen of putting the Sewell Avery Case in a nutshell. The literary work is he Malcolm Bingay Detroit free press columnist a to me it seems supremely asinine to contend that a government in wartime can take a Man away from his family Bis property Ami his Job to fight for his country and to give up his life which no court or no act off ingress can restore to him but it must not interfere with an orig in old gentleman who wants to Settle a private feud with a Man named Roosevelt who happened to he men always have asked government to defend them against practices of the dishonest. A a has the Public Ever asked for government regulation of business a Many Many times. The Public demanded pure food and drug Laws to protect Public health. The Public has asked government to prevent the Sale of fake stocks to examine Banks for financial soundness to regulate prices charged by a monopoly. A thousand More instances could be cited. Quare labor Laws an a a interference with free Enterprise a yes of course since they certain restrictions on employment payrolls etc., of the business. This kind of regulation goes Way Back. Too. Some states have limited the working Day Lor women and children for a Hundred years. In the Post decade there have been More such Laws than Ever before designed to improve the safety and health of workers to keep them from advantages of both there Are Many kinds of business activity a a sphere Competition is responsibility to preserve the nation end it is my judgment that there is specifically granted to wasteful and strict regulation him authority to utilise All re Rue Essat these lines include source of the country to that railroads utilities banking and end.

Regional director of the United steelworkers for the Job he and fellow Lisa Cio did in getting army ordnance to take Over the steel Plant of Andrews steel co. Newport As a Plant for producing shells. It Means a to million Dollar payroll which otherwise would have been lost. That can spell the difference Between Good times and hard times for Many Northern Kentucky business firms. And a great Deal of that pay Roll w ill be spent also in i Cincinnati. It is an outstanding proof of the fact that sound labor unions Are Good for a Community a particularly labor unions such As l said to which makes political action operate for the Benefit of the Community As Well As the Union. There can he no doubt that Good wages and employment mean Good business for merchants doctors lawyers and a Host of others. It is something to remember m thinking of the postwar period. Only the fact that Isa Cio is Active in Washington and got the excellent cooperation of sen. Barkle and rep. Spence made this accomplishment possible. The same Force w ill work if we Fth at Ike Uit f used after the War. Essential civilian goods is not a reason for denying the chief executive and the commander in chief of the Arm Yand Navy the Power to take Steps to protect the nation s War Effort. In modern War the maintenance of a healthy orderly and stable Civ Ilia Economy is essential to successful military Effort. It is obvious from the above that the president As Coinman or in chief of the army and Navy has wide discretion in defending the Republic in time of War.
