The defy was Flung by the. Elected head of a giant organization whose position by virtue of its influence should Call for the highest regard for Law and solemn respect for democratic ideals. The threat reported widely in the nation s press was intended to suspend a sword Over the United states Congress As a deterrent to passing constructive labor legislation. The sword a Promise of a crippling nationwide strike. The Man who reportedly the ultimatum later denied it although he was quoted by several Well qualified news reporters. It is not of the greatest importance that the Man is the Leader of a labor Union.

The Wise men who authored our Constitution were careful to see that the Power to make Laws rested with the duly elected i representatives of All the people. the same Token we have come to a dangerous state if any one Man has the Power to circumvent the constitutional operation of the government by imposing or threatening stress and hardship on the nations it eople.
