No matter how the individual citi-
zen stands on the organizational
rights of employes or employers, he
will find it advantageous to be aware
of the practices and principles—a:

New York City has been going
through a stiff course in these fund-
amentals with Thomas E. Dewey,
special prosecutor of rackets, as
teacher. And often the revelations
have been startling.
The recent trial of a group of men
for conspiracy to put out of business
such bakeries as failed to abide by
certain rules and prices established
an “association” provides some
good examples of complications that

One witness testified that when a
price-cutting baker was to be chas-
tized, the organization put a "black
wagon” on his route. The “black
wagon,” bearing no firm name, was
to follow the route trucks of the
price-cutter and undersell him.
A Bronx baker who suspected, but
could not prove that union officials
»nd officers of a bakers’ association
were conspiring to drive him out of
business, told howr his shop was
picketed and one of his trucks burn-
ed. Other witnesses testified to pay-
ments they had made to assure con-
tinuation of “protection” and to en-
force the organization’s rules.
Now a price-cutting war in itself
is not necessarily evidence of racke-
teering. Nor is the formation of a
union of workers, or an association
of business men. It Is only when
these legal forms are “borrowed” to
shield ill eg al activities that the

that their promoters are adept at
picking out the right spot and the
right time to begin without attract-

The racketeer has been chased
down and prosecuted, sporadically, in
many communities. But he always
comes back, and he always exacts
the same toll from the common
man, who usually already has had as

Therein lies an object lesson which

In fact, besides those who are vic-
timized by the chiseling imitators,
many another honest person is likely
to wake up some day and find him-
self actually affiliated with such a

smoothly the game is played.

Swimming and diving contests in
the water carnival drew much in-
terest. The more difficult dives, es-
pecially, were loudly applauded.
Divers were scored on six dives,
which were: Plain front dive, back
dive, back jack knife, plain half twist
and three optional dives.
In the scoring, Larry Garre of
Amarillo won first; W. A. Robert-
son, Amarillo, second; Martin Cluck,
Erick, Okie.., third, and Dick Kelly,
Amarillo, fourth. The Amarillo
youths are proteges of Bob Clark,
former Wheeler athletic Instructor.
Winners in the 40-yard free style
swimming dash were: Larry Garre,
Amarillo, first; Dam a r is Holt,
Wheeler, second, Loyd Gilmore,
stroke, all entrants being from that
Also won by Amarillo was the
medley relay race, with Henry
Blackburn swimming the back
stroke, John Boyce, Amarillo, breast
stroke; Larry Garre, Amarillo, free
Buddy Kopp, Erick young man,
kept the crowd in laughter during
the diving contests with his clown

self with water and glory.
Members of the finance committee
of the milk fund, for which the
water carnival was staged, today ex-
pressed thanks to entrants and con-
testants, Glenn A. Truax and his
Irish band and to every one who had
a part, however small,
the event a success.

Eyes that strain and squint, fighting
for clear vision, are not efficient
eyes. The very effort they exert in
piercing “overbrightness’’ or glare
means a drain of vital nervous en-
ergy that rightfully belongs to other
parts of the body. Such eyes need
the protection of, neutral, glare re-
ducing lenses like Soft-Lite Lenses.

Ing an echo-sounding device the
expedition was able, for the first
time in history, to determine
thickness of the ice covering.
Commander Richard E. Byrd esti-
mated that the ice sheet at the
South Pole varies from about two
miles in thickness to a few feet.
“Therefore, we think,” said Ad-
miral Byrd in his official report on
his exploration, “that hundreds of
thousands of years ago the ice
that covered many states of this
country probably was as much as
two miles thick.”
The Byrd expedition discovered
and claimed for the United States
a land area as Urge as the com-
bined Atlantic Seaboard states
from Maine to Georgia.
