WESTBROOK PEGLER, THE PERFECT MAN!
Westbrook Pegler loosened up his wrath against the A. F. of
L. in Washington Monday, appearing before a House committee
studying legislative action against strikes in defense industri *
The same old vitriolic Pegler, seeing no good in anything the A. F.
of L. does, or any of its affiliated internationals. Behold, in Westr
brook you have the “perfect man.” A critic, and a vitrolic one, of
each and everyone who agrees with him not. We have been con
nected with, and affiliated with, the Federation for nearly 52
years, and by and far it will stack up for decency, honest and up
rightness with any body of men of like numbers that this writer
knows of. True, it has had some crooks in it; true, it has made
mistakes, but will Mr. Pegler tell us of an organization composing
over five million members that has not had a few crooked leaders,
as well as members, and we do not except the Church.
Mr. Pegler took particular pains to lay off the C. I. O., toward
which he has leaning, and was once a member of it, if he is not
now. The A. F. of L. has weathered many such gales over half a
century, an dhas grown like the proverbial bay tree.
The Journml is glad to note that Mecklenburg will not have a three
man tax board, and that J. Arthur Henderson will continue in his present
position.
Some one remarked to us the other day that if Christopher Columbus
was alive today you would have a hard time convincing him the world was
round in its present shape.
If the Legislature would cease holding one-day sessions of that body
outside of Raleigh the business of the State could be finished at an earlier
date. These little jaunts only upsset the routine.
Our Negro criminal problem is becoming more acute. With a murder
record of five for January-February, on Tuesday night four desperate negro
criminals staged a jail-break in which fortunately there was no fatalities.
On March 31st the Duke Endowment will pass out a million dollars or
more, for hospitalization in the Carolinas. The money that you give to Reddy
Killowatt comes back in many ways to aid humanity, especially in the
Carolinas.

The Machinists International is threatening a break with the A. F. of L.
which we hope will not occur. The I T. U. seems on its way back into the

some interesting news stories, whether exaggerated or not, we do not know,
but our faith remains in the A. F. of U and we believe their decisions will
be just and beneficial to the affiliated Internationals.

Five murders, all negroes, have occurred in Charlotte this February,

As Express Agent
GASTONIA, Peb. 22—R. W. Hun

pointed agent for Gastonia to suc
ceed E. T. Brown.
The latter, recently was transferred

Charlotte Central Labor Body and
an all-round good citizen. But Gas
tonia is not a long ways off and it is
hoped he will be with us often.—Ed.)
