LIBERTY OR LICF_ISE i Some of the practices of labor unions can no longer be excused as privileges of liberty. They are sheer license. And the results that are be- ginning to appear should alarm .every union member and every real American., A news report from Port Huron, Michigan, for example, tells how the stockholders of one of Michigan's oldest industrial concerns voted to liquidate the company. The management said that the disturbances and demands of the union made profitable operation impossible. The 325 employes of the firm will have to look elsewhere for work. And then there are the recurrihg instances of members being thrown out of unions and pre- vented from working at their trade for refusing to pay political assessments to support candi- dates and measures objectionable to them. The following- is typical of press comment on such abuses: "If union memberships can be, cancelled for refusal to make contributions against a mem- ber's will, then there isn't muc5 freedom of suf- frage or freedom of speech left." Suchlabor dictatorship is making a mockery of the advertised freedom of American work- men,-they am flling into the position of the slave labor we have freed in Europe. O " OUR BLACK MARKET Residents of the small towns have thought about the black market but rarely, if ever, have they come in contact with it. Such a condition was hard to believe, especially in towns of this area Where food has been plentiful and there hasn't been any demand' for black market pro- duce. The condition has been changed in recent weeks by the OPA muddle made of the meat situation. The black market is definitely here in Okanogan County and there is hardly a town where there hasn't been an attempt made by some wholesalers to force the retailers into the purchase and sale of black market meat. In most instances the imeat markets have re- sisted the advances of the black market specu- lators but there are bound to be some retailers who have paid the illegal prices. It is indeed strange that thousands of meat markets all over the nation are closing when the largest number of cattle in our history are on the hoof. Possibly the farmer and stockmen are re- fusing* to kill or sell cattle at the prevailing prices. Whatever the reason for the meatless condi- tion it can be remedied by allowing an increase in the price of bee to the stockmen. .... " COMPLETE OPTOMETRIC SERVICE Office Hours 1 To 5:30 P.M.
