This Isn't Iu Germany
Consider the front page of any good morning
newspaper for June 22. Take the New York Times,
for example, a "newspaper of record which has long

from Italy. They are from Detroit New York Wash-
ington, Columbus—American centers of industry,
aariculture, commerce and government.

in when police and national guard fail to preserve

Nine thousand tank cars shifted to east coast serv-
ice because gasoline is so scarce farmers can t farm
and workers can't get to the job—but OPA inspectors
catch citizens still pleasure-riding. .
Only the President can end the coal strike, in which
530 000 miners rest while soldiers beg for weapons
and munitions that require steel that can t be rnade
without the coal that is not being mined—and this is
the third stoppage since March, and solution as far
out of sight as it was in February.
Home deliveries of milk may have to be stopped in
New York City—and where next?
This is only part of the front page for one day, and
it treats of facts, not of the tortured imaginings of
anti-administration propagandists. Neither is it re-
porting feas of saboteurs and pro-Axis agents; the
Detroit race riots obviously were a spontaneous ex .
pression of antagonism which pro-fascists certainly i some count! ic under which \
like and may have encouraged, but they go much n8reefl to t;ik<
deeper than that.
Do you feel pretty good about the news of what our
bombers and our anti-submarine craft are doing?
How do you suppose the fighting men feel about
how WE are doing, here at home?

Deeds Are What Count
In opposition to the Smith-Connaiiy btsi the C i O
advertises that "representing most of the country's
organized war workers" it "has given its solemn and
unconditional pledge against any stoppages whatever
for the duration of the war."
It is very questionable whether the C. I O does
represent most of the organized war workers; there
is also the A F. of L. and there are some substantial
independents, including the Mine Workers
The leadership of the C. I. O. presumably meant
its "solemn and unconditional pledge" against war
strikes, but in fact there are war strikes daily, many
of them involving C. 1.0. groups

some powerful law unquestionably is needed, right

Supphes to British in Burma
Lend-Lease and Air Rule
Anglophobes seek to build up fear and resentment
against Britain by emphasizing that the British are
preparing to use lend-lease planes on air routes to
Latin America and the Far East.
The British, it is pointed out, realize that they are
being left behind in international aviation, and are
hedging against peacetime competition.
Well, why not? Would this country, if pcstions were
reversed, sit back and see a friendly economic rival
tie up the post-war air world? Are we.so inferiority-
complexed that we do not trust our ability to hold our
own in the air?
In the war against Germany, Italy and Japan, the
British Empire is making its full contribution and earn-
ing all it is getting from us.
