Sunday journal. Time bulletin vol. 11, to. 28racine, wis., sunday november 24, 1940 to pages red a a cells of Racine and Kenosha Are merged by Tex Reynolds when most people think of the word a cell a they think of a Niche in a Hoos Egowa. But when you write about the communist party you must think of a a a cell As a unit of the party. That is you must if you want to write like an authority on the subject because practically All of the books and pamphlets use a a cell almost exclusively instead of such common Garden variety of names As a group a a club a a society a Etc. Having thus paraded my knowledge and established myself As an authority on the life habits and customs of the subversive lads who like red flags and think in the same color let us get Down to the burning question at hand on this last sunday in november. What happened to the Racine cell of the communist party that a the question. A week ago i could t have answered it. An expert hates to admit that he does t know but i would have been in that fix. Now however i have the answer. The Racine cell has merged amalgamated tied up with and become a hyphenated part of the Kenosha cell. In other words we Don t have a separate Racine cell any More. Neither does Kenosha. But the two cities together boast or do they of one double cell officially known As the a Racine Kenosha a a a where do i get that Well i am Able to announce exclusively to sunday bulletin readers that the information comes from pamphlets circulated by the Racine Kenosha cell itself but since Only a few Hundred of them were distributed Here its More or Leas confidential so please keep it to yourself. Those of us who Are in the secret service must be tight lipped about such things. The communism business seems to have gone downhill hereabouts since the a Good old Days when they held parades with men women and children singing the a when they staged riots and demonstrations in which Dobbins were knocked and when throwing bricks through automobile windshields was the favorite form of outdoor athletics among the lads with the Crimson. But the amalgamated hyphenated surviving cell does reasonably Well with the material at hand. See special care apparently was taken to see that the pamphlets were Well distributed in labor circles Here. One fellow i know got four copies in his mail Box at Union Hall. Apparently the red lads wanted to be sure he Wasny to missed. But there a a Peculiar thing about the message signed by Dalton Johnson chairman of the by City cell who used to be a business agent for the labourer so Union in Kenosha but got tossed out of the Al figuratively literally spiritually and physically. The Peculiar thing is that instead of the usual firing at the a big Bosses and the a greedy labor baiting capitalists a the communists used their ammunition on or. Roosevelt mrs. Roosevelt the defense commission As a whole and Sidney Hillman of the Cio in particular. Secretary of the Treasury Hank Morgenthau and assorted others. As per custom they hauled off and took a crack at the press. But not the a capitalist controlled press Quot this time. No sir now the boys Are mainly mad at the labor press and they mentioned Backie and Kenosha labor writers by name. That latter fact sort of hurts me.

He Rode upon a two seater Shay attached by strings of electric lamps to four solid Silver Reindeer. The whole works was perched upon a Mobile Mountain of White Gypsum. In the rear seat sat Santy and Barrymore in a Homburg hat in front were miss Lamour and Vallee. From above came imitation Snow puffed from a Gold smokestack.

Greek triumphs Over italians May Force Mussolini to reorganize fascist Hans of Quick Conquest urges social Security for Holiday workers Milwaukee nov. 21.�? up a the Milwaukee office of the so Del Security Board issued a statement urging that social Security cards be obtained by those expecting to obtain employment in commercial or Industrial establishments during the Holiday season. The cards should be obtained before application for work is made the statement added As some employers will not consider persons who do not present a cent by j. W. T. Maron United pres War expert the greek capture of Koritza Italy a most important Field base in Albania must Lead to reorganization of the fascist plans of Campaign against Greece and May stimulate revolt among the albanian tribesmen gravely increasing Italy a difficulties. If Mussolini receives no help it is Well within the possibilities that a must choose Between abandoning the greek War or lessening his commitments elsewhere or calling More troops to the colors. It is disconcerting to the italians that the greeks have shown a stronger offensive fighting spirit than the fascists. First in defense tactics within their own territory and now in offensive operations amid the albanian mountains greek leadership and greek military plan have been Superior to their opponents. A Kurrer far mesh Alai. Mussolini apparently has erred primarily in taking on a More ambitious program of Conquest than his present military strength allows. In his speech last monday la Duce said the italian armies now total 1,000.000 men. That number is not sufficient for such grandiose enterprises As the fascist general staff has envisioned. At the top of Mussolini a list of future accomplishments promised to the italian people is the defeat of Greet Britain in North Africa. A huge army must be required before any such major offensive can be started. In addition Yugoslavia a a position necessitates keeping Large italian forces near the Jugoslav Boundary. Too in warfare it is essential to maintain heavy Rosary at horns to guard against the unexpected. Italy needs Mare Trespa. When the requirements of the Campaign in Greece Are added to these other demands it is certain that much More than 1,000,000 troops Are needed. However la Duce has assured the italians that there will be no general mobilization. Indeed parts of his speech last monday already have caused speculation concerning the Domestic reaction in Italy if important additions Are called into the army from civilian occupations. It is reasonable to believe that the greeks May Well out number the italians along the fighting front at present even if Mussolini has available the men and material in readiness at Home to Geeky the balance rapidity of movement can scarcely be expected. British and greek aviators have damaged the albanian Landing ports and they can be expected to continue these attacks disrupting the smooth working of the italian lines of communication. Mussolini a predicament could be relieved if Hitler were to Aid him by sending a fully equipped mechanised striking Force through Yugoslavia into the greek Plains which run from the Jugoslav Border to Salonika. But All evidence to the present suggests the germans ars not yet in a rescuing party but a special entertainment also will be provided for the j kindergarten children at memorial Hall.

Nervous Russia watches nazis a counter move by Stalin is deemed eventually inevitable new York nov. 24. A a rumanian a signature to the triple Alliance added to Hungary a inclusion within the German sphere gives Hitler formal control Over a continuous sweep of territory from the German Border to the Black sea. Sooner or later it will be necessary for Russia to make some counter move or else abandon All slavic ambitions in Southeastern Europe. Hitler now has uninterrupted strategic command of the Center of Europe extending from the North sea to the Black seats Northwestern coast line. Hungary and Rumania As Germany a military vassals have allowed Hitler to threaten Russia with a Southern blockade. Pressure put on slavs. Moscow a denial of a Berlin statement that Russia previously had been informed of the invitation to Hungary to join the triple Alliance is significant of Stalin a feelings. More pointed is the report from Sofia that Bulgaria is reluctant to follow Hungary and Rumania without russians approval. Russian pressure on the bulgarian slavs thus May be beginning. More than Ever before Russia can now discern hitlers intention to keep Stalin out of Europe by. A policy of envelopment. The German gesture of pointing to Middle Asia As russians future area of expansion is being followed by undisguised strategic movements of enforcement. Russia awaits her Chance. Rumanian a obedience to Berlin has made her Oil Fields a legitimate target for British and turkish bombing if Germany starts an offensive movement against the Dardanelles. The rumanian cannot hide behind neutrality even though rumanian troops do not participate. Partial destruction of the rumanian Oil Wells might have a vital effect on the whole course of the conflict if any weakening of German Oil supplies became evident Russia would be in a position to show her real feelings. It would seem that some such development is what Russia eagerly awaits no that the German design in Southeastern Europe is unfolding. House stalls in 8tibt Haddonfield n. J., Nev. 23.
