Lewis is through politically n4 as

“It makes me laugh when I hear
people say my father wants to lm a

making a misstatement he ia usually
agreeing with one of the roforma or
actions of this Administration.”
“We of the Democratic party don’t
feel that Franklin Roosevelt is indis
pensable, but rather that he is the
best fitted,” he said.

LEWIS ON THE SCAFFOLD
(Ttw fallowing excerpts sre reprinted from an editorial in the
Montgomery, Ala., Advertiser:) A
-Rat podgy old blatherskite John L. Lewis, put a rope around his
neck, took his place, voluntarily, upon the scaffold, beat Ms breast Hke
a roaring gorilla from the Belgian Congo and said to the American
people: “See? I’m a hero. I wapt to die for you. If labor doss notfol
low me and Tom Girdler and A P. Morgan in this election, danged if
1 don't resign my lob in November. Gr-r-! Pm a tough guy. 1 want
to be a martyr. Let me hang, if I must!”
And it u okay by us. The sooner the better. We just dote on
political funerals. Rere never has been enough of them in this coun
try WeHoubt if a more dishonest political speech was ever before di
rected to the American people by any man with a pretense to intel
lectual and moral dignity. Rere was not an honest line in his speech.
As one sat before the family receiving set and listened to the unctious
outgivings of this phoney prophet of salvation for Labor one who has
any sense could detect the notes of hypocrisy: John L. tasted his
rhetorical phrases as he achieved his venomous rhythm and halted to
pick his teeth.
Lewis adroitly appealed to every base class prejudice of which he
has any knowledge, not even excepting religious prejudice. He specifi
cally appealed to IQiristians” against the war mood and impressed
some of Ms hearers as meaing that he did not trust the moral impulses
of other sectarian groups. In view of the fact that Sidney Hillman, col
league of Knudaen and Setinius on the Defense Commission, is com
monly recognized as a Labor leader, in view of the fact that Hillman
and Lewis are at loggerheads, and in view of the fact that Hillman
Js a Jew, one wonders if Lewis has been fascinated by the Hitler
technic.
Belk’s Remodeled
Basement Store
Has Nine Depts.
With the opening of Belk Bros. Com
pany’s new basement store the firm
has announced a basement lay-away
department, this will be a special
department where those wishing to ae>
cure merchandise for future delivery
may pay a reasonable deposit and
have- their purchase set aside until
some later delivery date.
This lay-away plan, A. L. Griffeth,
manager of the basement, explained,
will enable numerous people in mod
erate circumstances to select Christ
mas merchandise or other needed
items and have them held until they
accumulate the bftlioct of tho
purchase price.
“We expect this department to
prove a very popular basement fea
ture.” stated Mr. Griffetb. “It is one
of the many convenient services we
I will have in connection with the new
basement store.”
After systematic, careful plan*
ned remodeling operations, requiring
four ane one-half months of time and
very substantial monetary expendi
tures, the basement of Belk Bros. Com
oany has been transformed into one
of the most modern establishments of
the kind to be found anywhere, offi
cials of the company said Tuesday as
they announced everything in readi
ness for its formal opening tomorrow
morning.
Embracing approximately 80,000
square feet of floor space and all
needed facilities, inclusive among
other things, of very large, up-to-the
minute stocks, about a dozen depart
ments and the modernization idea re
flected in every phase of operations,
this, huge, attractive basement now
houses "a complete department store
within itself,” A. L. Griffeth, base
ment manager, said.
Not much satisfaction is gained
from doing things that hold no diffi
culties.
