Our Country Right or Wrong
' The aid and comfort given our enemies by
Axis agents who may destroy a unit of some
industry, or by strikers who close whole in-
dustries, is the'same except the strikers give
infinitely more aid.
Strikes in 1943 almost doubled the aver-
age for the 15-year period preceding our en-
try into war, and totaled 3,737, or, 13,947,273
man-days. It is difficult to understand the
spirit that moves men to such desertion on
their posts of duty, often for the most trivial
reasons, except there is no protection in this
country for a man who wishes to work con-
trary to a strike order. :-i '

CONGRESS MUST BE 'BLOC' BUSTER
The congress of the United States is made
up, in the main, of hard working,-sincere men
who have the best interests of the nation at
heart. During .the past decade, congress ha-
been subjected to reprehensible pressurv-
group ,attacks. Organizations representing
"blocs" of citizens, and professing to speak
,for such voting groups, put pressure on con-
gressmen to force through class legislation.
Such practices, unless curbed, will be the
ruination of any country. Organization leacd-
ership should raise its sights. Congress should
not be subjected to high pressure coercion.
Special pleaders for pressure groups have
sought to make this a country of special
privileges for minorities at The expense of the
