LEWIS IS HOLDING A BOB-TAIL FLUSH
Yes, Mr. Lewis wants to be alone; he seeks solitude, but a
luxurious solitude; naturally he should meditate; naturally at
stock-taking time he should want to be excluded from newspaper
men, and even the men who made him “near great,” it is perfectly
natural that in Miami, with the warm zephyrs of ocean breexes
cooling his fervid brow he should seek- solitude. The Miami Daily
News on its editorial page passes on one of the nicest pieces of
sarcasm it has been our privilege to peruse in many a day. The
Journal does not agree, or think much of the last paragraph of
this article, which says that being a “labor leader has its com
pensations,” as far as it has a general reference. Of course it
is well known that all leaders of organizations, both church, secret
societies, business organizations, etc., has its compensation. The
laborer is worthy of his hire, regardless of the line of endeavor
but Mr. Lewis has played the game to the limit, and as it appears
when called to show his hand he has been found to hold a bob
tail flush.
But, without further comment let’s quote from the Miami
Daily News :
MR. LEWIS WANTS TO BE ALONE
This job of being a labor leader has its compensations.
For 11 months each year, John L. Lewis, beetle-browed, hard
boiled president of the Congress of Industrial Organisations, bat
les for the downtrodden working man.
Then he relaxes.
I Right now he is relaxing, and doing it magnificently, at the
swanky Nautilus hotel, Miami Beach.
After rising this morning, and inspecting the very fine manicure
he received yestercjgy immediately upon his arrival at the hotel. Mr.
Lewis breakfasted about 11 a.m.
Outside, waiting to wry him to a sundrenched beach, or what
ever other spot he might select to spend the day, was a long, low
slung black limousine driven by a liveried chauffeul.
But before starting out on the day’s round of pleasure. Mr,
Lewis had business to transact with the management of the hotel.
Perharps he felt it his duty to report that certain persons—news
paper reporters and photographers, to be exact—were invading the
sacrosanct precincts of the Nautilus and intruding on the privacy
of the guests. Particularly the privacy of Mr. Lewis.
Now, normally, Mr. Lewis doesn’t deprive the press of the
pleasure of interviewing or photographing him. In fact, Mr. Lewis
usually is very interviewable, and none will deny his is photogenic.
But Mr. Lewis is on vacation, and like Greta Garbo, who is also
photogenic and on vacation, he wants to be alone. So, quitting his
$38-a-day room he went to the office of Manager Fred Abel to
complain about the violation of his privacy.
It didn't matter to Mr. Lewis that the American Newspaper
Guild, the union to which thousands of reporters throughout the
country belong, the union to which thousands of reporters through
out the country belong, is a part of the C. I. O. Even one’s uiuoa
pals can get in one’s hair at times.

Claude Albea Writes
Editor and Madam
From Vet Hospital
The Journal was in Atlanta when
Claude Albea came up for a day or
two from the Veterans’ hospital, at
Columbia. He dropped us a card and
it was cheering news to learn that he
was in good shape and that his knee
was responding to treatment. He also
spoke of the friends who came to see
him, and of the weekly visits of “the
Barrs,” who now reside In Columbia
but are Charlotte’s contribution to the
South Carolina labor movement, be
ing of the Plumbers and Stesmfitters
contingent. Claude said “Give all
the boys my best regards and tell them
I will be with them soon.” And here’s
hoping!
