La the barometer care where the Money from that is up to the author ties. Our goal work for All who can work to each the fruit of his work help for All who can t work hell for those who won t work.

It you have any grievances or peeves or ideas which would be interest ing. Send your letters to the editor. Several letters will be printed in each Issue. No let ters will be accepted for publication unless they Are signed the writer. We believe that any institution which can not stand fair criticism has no place n our so City. Let this column we ate not going to name contest us find a name for this paper. The name is most in that. They say there is no Money to get Don t let that worry you As i can show you where there is plenty of it. Andrew Mellon has about 000 dollars and Ford has about the same amount and so on Down the line. That Money n circulation is enough be tons. As a barometer of Condi oct. 6, 1933 the Why and therefor great philosophers Tell us that it is the historical Mission of the working class to change and improve the social system. Under the lash of exploitation and oppression the workers in society rebel and when successful establish new institutions to take the place of those which no longer serve them. From mis we gather that it is the dissatisfied element who furnish the impetus or Force for any Progress. It naturally follows that the satisfied group or those in Power would set up a resistance. They would not be Able to imagine a situation More to their liking and would resist a change bitterly. This brings us to the class struggle. We agree that capital and labor should be friends but since they Are not and never can be let us accept the facts. We know that labor is exploited by capital to the nth degree. Today labor must fight for its very existence. The vast profits of capital taken during Good years and now in Reserve Are not available to continue this Mutual Aid Between capital and labor. What Are these profits Lui Wuhu a wages win Uick not because Iney Are necessary Tor expansion and overhead but because they represent economic Power. All our economic ills of today can be traced to this fault of the unfair division of the Mutual earnings of capital and labor. The very fact that the capitalist system is capable of piling up such surpluses in the hands of a few is the secret of its in doing. With the markets of almost every country glutted and the Only apparent buyers the Labouring masses who have Noth ing to buy with the situation is made Clear. The reason the masses have no buying Power is because labor is never paid More than an existence. Even under the Era. The wages in the South Are lower than in the North because the Northern workers must buy fuel. Now with the unpaid wages of labor going to the same Fellows who own the surplus and of course still own the machinery of production it seems they ought to be satisfied. What else is there to get dear editor i what is Relief now some seem to think it is something terrible to live on Relief. It is not a disgrace. 1 am trying to explain it As Best i can. When i was 8 years old i hired out for my Board and room and a suit each sum Mer. Now if 1 could earn that when i was 8 years old i be Lieve i can still earn that much. Now that i have raised a family of nine boys and girls 1 still think i am entitled to a living. I am 48 years old so they will say Well he is too let me Tell you that i have worked in one shop for the last five years. And i am proud to say that us old men in that shop did three times As much work As the Young men so i Don t think 1 am too old. But now we will say that i am too old is that a reason we r p m a Natl starve you can take notice and we re calling for help. First think of a name that conveys the thought that this is a paper for everybody. We want the name to give the impression also that the paper is in sympathy with the plight of the unemployed. Bear m mind that h is sponsored by the Tva Vuic committee. No name will be considered which contains More than four words. After you think of a name write the reasons Why we should use the name. In event two people Send in the same name the Winner will be decided by the Best letter accompanying the name. A committee of three judges will decide the Winner and a Small Cash prize will be awarded. Send your names with the reasons for the name to the editor Racine workers com that i must Lay Down and die 1 saw no 1 had an old Fel Low Tell me in this shop one to take care of All of us. An see if they hold that Money away rom us and say we must starve i would say let us make some w Money and Call Mellon s d Ford s Money no Good and a How they themselves would like it. I would also like to ask the Public if a Man and family is entitled to decent living quarters. I sure would like to have some of you see some of the places the unemployed Are put into. They Don t rent very Good houses for three a month and that is what they allow out Here. Thank Good Ness i have my own Home. Is it any wonder that labor is organizing and by the time we Are organized you May find that labor will Tell the other fellow where to get off at. About eighty per cent of the u. S. A. Is labor. We do not intend to let the Twenty per cent run us much longer and the sooner the Twenty per cent sin St., Racine Wisconsin. Frank Culotte the Home grocer 1136 Center St Joe Koshak suit. Made to order repairs cleaning pressing scabs Many people confuse a Scab with a Man who does not belong to a Union this is an error. Stabbing happens Only during a strike. When one Man is dissatisfied with wages or conditions Jim Uwana refuses to Correct inem be is tree to quit and usually does. However when a croup is dissatisfied and can get no satisfaction they can suspend operations or strike until a settlement is made. Many times in the past intolerable conditions have caused the entire personnel of a factory to strike. Sometimes the owners refuse to Settle then they try to replace the strikers with strike Breakers. Strikes Are usually broken this Way. The men who take these jobs by their action condone the conditions and Wagas that proved unsatisfactory to the regular employees. The men taking these jobs knowing that a strike is in Progress Are called scabs. These scabs Are usually found to be of very Low mentality and having no sense of responsibility or Pride. In most ases they possess a Craven selfish nature a trait hat makes the jacket i or scavenger Wolf the most despised of animals. We Are unable to find words to describe the Scab Type properly. Be it sufficient to say that he is a Judas who be hmm Wao sold i his birth tight for a of Pottage the Scab is willing to sell of Birthright but data t usually get the footage he Only driving the wages of his class the Labouring class below the level.
