The Labor Journal will not be responsible for opinions
***r"P»“d«t«- If y»e sot get your paper drop a postal
to the Editor and he will see that you do.
We believe in American business and Aamricaa Workers.
We believe that a just share of the profits which the workers
help produce, should be given the worker, for without this
benefit, lasting prosperity cannot be assured.
Hie Labor Journal is true to the American ideala of
Government and believe that the people of America under
their own Democracy are capable of solving their own prob
lenm in their own way, without aid of philosophies that run
counter to our demonstrated form of government. We be
lieve in the Constitution of the United States and in the
Stare and Stripes, its official emblem.
We are opposed of Nazism, Communism, Fascism, and
all other “lama* that seek to destroy and undermine our
Democratic form of government.
Were it not for the labor preas the labor move
ment would not be what it is today, and any aum Who
tries to injure a labor paper is a traitor to the cams.

“And He showed me a pure river of water of life, clear
as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the
Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on .either side of
the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner
of fruits and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves
of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”
UNIONISM CAN ONLY LIVE WHERE MEN ARE TRUE
We in America and the working people in particular
stand immovably in opposition to totalitarianism and tat de
fense of democracy. We do that for national reasons as well
as for economic reasons. We have learned from a study of
the situation that trade unionism can only flourish and live
where men are free. Freedom is the basis upon which our
government rests. Our democratic trade unions cannot live,
they cannot exist under the totalitarian form of government,
for the record shows that the dictator attacked, first of all,
the trade unions when he seized power.—William Green.
