The number Young men in the latter once numbered around 2,400,000, but is smaller today be. Cause Many have volunteered in Ltd Avail Ian be pm Al Man Navy it marines coast guard and Power in class i a rapidly being air forces. It is estimated that the since the outbreak War Many Short sighted persons and selfish interests have been hammering at labors Freedom but the american federation labor has resisted every Challenge triumphantly. At the very outset the War labor Rose to the occasion by voluntarily relinquishing the exercise its right to strike for the keeping the Middle East intact. They must know that Rommel must be forced out Africa in 19-year-old youths into the aimed tirely they must know that the forces.

As revealed in stung Field marshal Rommel because monday came the word that his German panzers had begun the Long awaited offensive. He moved ahead fast gained eight minefields at the Southern end the Al Alamein line. Tank Battles raged up and Down the front and big american and British bombers began to Roar into action. Heavy air attacks checked Rommel by thursday and Friday he had a True Cross Section Survey by the Institute would be As follows Between drafting 18 and 19 year old men married men with children which should it choose a 18-19 year group .77% married men with children 13 undecided to a if the government had to choose Pic la.

Shigenori Togo who a resigned a As foreign minister Japan. 2. Ramon Serrano Suner who was removed As foreign minister Spain by his brother in Law dictator Generalissimo Franco. Both actions Are great importance internationally because both May bring about new Maneu vers in this global War. Togo whose Job was assumed temporarily by Premier Hideki Tojo. Was a former ambassador to Russia and it is feared that his resignation May be a prelude to a Stab at Russia through Siberia. Suner was strongly pro Axis and his elimination from office May be a Blessing to the United nations. Franco made other changes in his Cabinet. Franco s move puts him in position to take a seat in the Allied Camp should Hitler be held fast in Russia and should Rommel be kicked out Africa. Thus Spain conceivably could be an entry Way to Europe for that second front. Stalingrad is in dire peril. If the City Falls the Way is open for the nazis to coast Down the Volga to the Caspian sea and effectively snip almost All communication and supplies Between the Southern and Northern red armies. Only the Caspian sea route would be comparatively open. Therefore Stalingrad is being defended with the blood thousands russian soldiers and even civilians the City.

But new retreats came in the Middle the week and it Wasny to until saturday that dispatches from Moscow were Able to May that the soviet armies had stiffened All sectors and especially in the suburbs Stalingrad.

A a Christmas parcels for sailors and marines should be mailed fore the married men with Chillo million men is to be the ultimate goal by the end 1943, the drafting 18-19 year Olds will not be sufficient to raise it to that total and therefore the drafting a Large number married men will be necessary As Well perhaps beginning As Early As Jan. I. Selective service Headquarters has in fact Given warning that men in class 3 May face the draft by Christmas. Although the Public would rather see the youths inducted be William Green the results testify to the soundness our position. The record steady uninterrupted hard work piled up by the six million members the american federation labor since Pearl Harbor is unmatched anywhere in the economic history any nation in the world.

Regardless initial defeats regardless the precarious situation some our allies we the american federation labor have an unshaken and unconquerable Confidence in the eventual Triumph our cause. We Are going to win this War and when the fighting is Over we Are going to make our Victory Over the forces hate and oppression permanent. We Are determined that when the terms peace Are written the four freedoms enunciated by president Roosevelt shall be established for All time throughout the world. And in addition to those freedoms a Freedom speech and religion Freedom from want and fear a labor will insist a fifth essential element to this glorious code. That is the Freedom workers in every land to join free and democratic Trade unions their own Choice. This is labors own peace Plank and no Force Earth can Stop us from making it a reality. Its unions. American workers it is a Challenge to our enemies must be kept free if the bound and a Promise liberation to less Energy and enthusiasm the people they have enslaved. Free men and women Are to be and we firmly believe this slogan is also a Plain statement fact. Americans Union men and women have known from the first that this is labors War. We have seen i what Hitler and his fellow slave masters have done to the working people in every country which they have Laid their foul hands. We have seen unions destroyed Trade unionists beaten imprisoned and killed and bestial conditions imposed the workers. We know we Are fighting in this War to preserve our right to organize and to defend every one the liberties we cherish More than our lives. The Congress Industrial organizations has Taxen leadership in every Effort to increase War production. Along with the rest organized labor we have Given up our right to strike for the wars duration so nothing May interfere with the production More and Mere tanks guns planes ships to crush the Axis. And we can take Pride this labor Day in the splendid results labors All out Effort which show that our free labor is a1-, ready out producing the slave labor the Axis Powers. But while we Call for More and More Effort to increase production we also insist that Victory can Only be won if labor is kept free. On the Home front we staunchly resist All schemes to destroy labor s democratic rights to freeze its wages and to hamstring utilized to the utmost in our supreme Effort for Victory. On behalf the millions members the Cio i can pledge our Complete and Loyal support for the War leadership our commander in chief president Roosevelt our wholehearted cooperation with All other sections labor with management and with All other True americans for United War Effort our Solidarity with labor and the Peoples All the United nations and our unswerving determination that free labor shall win.
