THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND FOR ALIENS
“Aliens From N. C. Plead Their Cases In Capitol.” Thus reads
a headline in the daily press. Then the story tells us that some
25 in number (and doubtless there are hundreds) moved on to
Washington, consisting of Jews, Lithuanians, Greeks, Turks, etc.,
in what was termed the “Forgotten Column,” pleading that some
thing be done regarding their “naturalization status.” In some
instances these “pleaders” had earned a living, perhaps waxing
fat and rich off Americans and on American dollars, but they
“forgotten or neglected to file naturalization papers until the pad
of disaster had overtaken their homeland, and the fear of depor
tation overcame them.
Some of the best friends we have and many of our best citi
zens are among the nationalities mentioned; men and women who
would go down the line with America to the last drop of blood and
the last dollar, they are a part and parcel of the American gov
ernment. It is oi the slackers and gold diggers, who love their
hi^les and worship their dollars that we speak. .
The Reynolds measure as to aliens appears slated for early
passage, as it should be. It those who come to our shores so
love America (and American dollars) they should be willing to
become naturalized and throw in their lot with us. There is no
excuse for any immigrant, if he is worthy of becoming an Amer
ican citizens, and has the love ot this country and its institutions
at heart, not seeing to it that he so becomes in the shortest length
of time possible. This writer knows of cases where men promi
nent in business have waited 10, 15, yea, 20 years to become
naturalized; business reasons then being the cause of their taking
such a step. ,
The Journal is not preaching a doctrine of seclusion for
Americans, but it is against America harboring and coddling
those who are only seeking American dollars. It is for immi
gration laws asgtight as Dicks hatband and, in fact, during this
era of world turbulence, a cessation of all immigration, and to
assimilate the stock we have on hand, weeding out those who are
dissatisfied with our laws and Constitution; who would unfurl
the flags of the Nazis, the Russian Reds, the Fascists, etc., within
our borders.
Yes, naturalization or Deportation should be the order of

the day in these United States now, and thorough investigation |
of every citizen known to have a leaning other than that of a
true American should be had, and at once. We believe in the
American Federation of Labor, for Americanism and allegiance to
the flag is a part of its creed, and it is as nearly a 100 per cent
American organization as will be found existing today in this
country.
No fair-minded American holds ill-will against those who
have come to our shores and shown a spirit of patriotism and
appreciation for their deliverance from poverty and obscurity and
oppression, by whole-heartedly, voluntarily and willingly becom
ing a part and parcel of our citizenship, but it does hold in ab
horence and contempt those who have to be compelled to become!
citizens, and in fact, we do not need them or want them.
Hitler the Mad has beat down France, Brittain is holding'as
she can, and, regardless of Lindberg, America must fight, and
sooner or later alone. This American “idol” has fallen in to dis
repute with the great majority of America citizens; his views and
Roosevelt’s are at variance from every angle. Sometimes we
wonder is he really and truly an American citizen, which, in time
of peril, America could trust. This may be treason, it is just
the way we feel about it.
God give us wisdom, give us strength, and a unity of those
who so love America that no sacrifice is too great, that we may
weed out from, our citizenship those termites who have been eat
ing our bread; who have been elevated to the seats of the high,
but-^ho at the bottom of their heart would see us destroyed.
BAN ’EM HERE, TOO
In the United States we have heretofore indulged in the happy
habit of letting everybody enjoy “liberty” to the limit. Even well
known aliens and outspoken opponents of our system of democratic
government take a healthy verbal "sock” at our jdeals, our institu
tions and our Government Officials, including, of course. President
franklin D. Roosevelt, but their time .seems limited in this respect.
Various “isms” and “ists” have sought to control and direct our
line of thought, infringing upon our generosity by seeking to per
petuate their idea that “liberty” in our country means “license” for
them to do as they please, without regard to the rights of others.
Now, we even see the alleged "Communist Party” present their
presidential candidate in the person of Earl Browder, under sen

WASHINGTON, D. C.—The Na

A. F. L. union to 681 for Textile

and 221 for neither organization.

So. here’s a news item from Ottawa, Canada, that ought to
inspire our Government to similar action:
“The decision of Ontario Supreme Court Judge E. R. Chevrier
outlawing Communist Party in Canada was heralded as the beginning
of a drive by Federal, provincial and municipal polic eagainst sub
versive ‘fifth column’ activities in the Dominion.
'"In addition' to declaring the Communist party an illegal or
ganization, Justice Chevrier sentenced three Communists—Harry
Binder, former parliamentary correspondent of the Communist
‘‘Daily Clarion.” now suppressed; his brother, Loulft, a former private
in the Canadian army, and Arthur Roy Saunders, Federal civil ser
vant and Communist sympathizer—to prison for from two and one
talf to three years and fined them from $1,000 to *2,000. They
were charged with offense under the defense of the realm act; spe
cifically with printing and distributing anti-war literature.
"Under Judge Chevrier’s decision adherents-of the Communist
Party become guilty of a criminal offense if they continued either
their membership or their activities.”—Nashville Trade and Labor
News.
Probe By Governm’t
Of Panama Canal
Aliens Has Begun
PANAMA CITY.—It was revealed
here that the United States Army has
begun an exhaustive investigation into
all European-born' aliens working in
the Canal Zone with the objective of
determining possible fifth-column ac
tivities that might endanger the Pan
ama Canal. It was reported the in
vestigation would include 2,500 em
ployes engaged in construction work
at the Quartermaster Division. It;
was claimed that practically 500 Ger- j
mans and Austrians are working on a
$00,000,000 project in the ten-mile
s*rip that comprises the Canal Zone.
There are also thousands of British
West Indies natives including a num
ber employed on the Canal itself. All
will be scrutinized. , -

The farmer came back, puffing and
blowing, and threw the rake in the
corner.
“Good heavens, dad!” cried his
wife. “What did you want to chase
that poor man off the farm for, like
you did?”
“Reason enough!” growled the far
mer. “I’ve just had to buy you that
new hat and dress, and I had to buy
Daily a present for her birthday, and
I had to buy' a new suit for David,
because ’e’s gone crazy on that Burke
gal. I ’ad to buy a new set of ’arness
for the buggy; and a cow rug for
Strawberry; and I 'ad to buy a license
for the dog—”
“Yes, but what has tiiat got to do
with It?”
“That fellow asked me if I wanted
j to buy something for the mosquitoes!”
