Taking Over Plants
On Moniday the army took over the
North American Aviation plant at Ingle
wood, California, because of a strike which
could not be settled by ordinary means.
Such proceedure is drastic and was a
couirse that the government hesitated
long, perhaps too long, to pursue.
But it means that the workers, by their
own abuse of liberal rights granted them
under labor laws, forfeited their rights.
But on the other hand it represents a
victory for the individual. Doubtless many
of the workers in the plant were patriotic
workmen who were glad of the opportuni
ty to help in defense of the nation as well
as glad of the opportunity to work at high
wages. On the so-called labor leaders lies
the blame for the trouble.
The way we look at it, the pickets who
had been preventing workmen from enter
ing the plant were enemies of the United
States and aides of Hitler and Mussolini.
It took the strong arm of the United States
army to remove those enemies and to allow
the plant to be opened.
Washington on Tuesday became awak
ened to the danger of labor troubles and
congress voted to make eligible for the
draft those who have jobs and refuse to
work in defense industries. Why this had
BOt been done months before, we are una
ble to tell, u’lless the following comment
by Representative Woodrum, of Virginia,
explains the matter:
“The time has got to come when men
on the floor of this House have got to
make up their minds to vote in the inter
est of America even though they know
that vote may keep them at home.”
Woodrum also said that ‘‘it is ridicu
lous for us to strut around bragging and
thumbing our noses at Hitler while we
haven’t the intestinal fortitude to come
to grips with a few labor leaders in
Today’s Business Leaders
What has brought America’s present
leaders of industry to the top of the busi
ness ladder?
•B. C. Forbes, well-known business writ
er, sought the answer to this question from
67 of this country’s present crop of indus
trial heads. The answers varied in indivi
dual cases, of course, but there were cer
tain very w'ell-defined threads running
through most of them.
Most o'f all, it is observable from Mr.
Forbes’ findings, which were published re
cently in Forbes Magazine, that the aver
age business leader of today wasn’t mere
ly content to wait until opportunity came
knocking on his *door. He went looking
for opportunity, and prepared himself to
recognize it when it did arrive!
The author found that education played
a tremendous role in helping most of these
men towards success. The majority sup
plemented their formal education and
their “school of hard knocks” training b.v
taking special courses. The.j’ were united
in believing that the opportunities in this
country .were great if you worked to take
advantage of th6irrr ^
Mr. Forbes lists some of the other dis
tinctive characteristics and beliefs of these
men; eagerness to learn as much as possi
ble about the work they were doing, read
iness to accept financial sacrifice if it was
necessary to gain a potentially greater op
portunity, a keen interest in human nature
and an aptitude for getting along with co
workers, and. recognition of the fact that
less important aims must be subordinated
to mastery of all phases of the job in hand.
The composite-picture of these men is an
kcouraging one for those interested in
continued national progress. All our nati-
- onal history has showed^nng
forward as its industries moved ahead—
W here is leadership that has trained it-
self^well Ih ^er to guide Ihdustry^on^

In an attack on within
past fortnight, Germany landed a terrSii
puncb.'^s- '
German warships didn’t steam in and
open fire with their guns; warplanes didn’t
fly over and dump tons of bombs; there
was no sound of marching feet, but the im
pact of the blow was felt in many-places.
The attack was by the same method

With suave reality, the Nazi propogan-
da machine spread the information in
America that Ambassador Winant had
come from England to report to President
Roosevelt the desperate plight of the
British ar 1 to discuss with him plans for
a peace which the British would ask for.
President Roosevelt promptly dedied
the report and fortright informed the na
tion of the origin of the report. Try as he
could, however, the President could not
wipe out the total effectiveness of this
phychological attack by the Nazis.
It is our duty as citizens to be on the
look out for repetition of such assaults, for
they tend to weaken our spirits and de
stroy our determination to rid the world of
the peril of Hitlerism. If that should come
to pass, the attack with warships, war
planes and marching men would become

Life’s better way is the way of natural
ness. Be yourself. Don’t try to imitate
somebody else. You can, and should, ac
cept the good examples they set before
you, and pattern after them in, that which
is good, hcoming, roble and upright, but in
the meantime be yourself. Don’t try to be
them. Many a preacher has tried to imi
tate somebody else, and preach just like
him, but it doesn’t become him. It doesn’t
make for his success. He should be him-,
self. No two men have voices alike, norj'o>'is*s to persons who go back to
mannerisms, nor makeups. We are creat-i'''®''’^ when a strike is called. We
ed separate and distinct one from another
in our personalities, therefore we can’t be
somebody else.
However, we should be our best in our
naturalness, in our makeup, in our person
alities, in our temperaments. We should
have a profound love one for another, a
deep de.sire to help and bless each other,
and to help each other rise and climb in
life, and to make of life the greatest suc
cess possible, specially spiritually. This , , „ , -u- „
is right. This makes life noble, great and f

In order to be beautiful on the outside
vou must be noble on the inside. You must,

makes you beautifully natural, and natur

We have taken our lives, and the things
of earth, out of the natural so much until
there is a vast amount of suffering physi

penalty attached to it that has to be paid.

A Second carburetor opens up. Air

get your “stretch drive” any time you
give die word.
But — this isn’t only for thrill.
This engine’s actually more efficient
because it has this “second wind.”
It gives you a car that has the life and
