Harlan Becomes
Restless Again
E.GHT YEARS AGO this month Har-
lan County, Kentucky, was dead-
locked in another of its periodic strikes. Workers
were asking the right to organize; mine owners
were just as determined to operate without a
union. The strike had dragged on for weeks;
mountain families were starving; the atmos-
phere was tense.
On May 5, 1931, three carloads of "deputies,"
in actuality the political hendhmen of the
operators, moved from the town of Evarts toward
Harlan. A group of miners met the, fired on
them from ambush, and in zne ensuing Battle
of Evarts, Harlan's bloodiest, five men were killed
and many wounded.
Time moves slowly in Harlan. It is still 'the
nucleus .of labor violence.
The month-and-a-half-old coal strike has
ended for all the coalfields except those center-
ing around Harlan County. Eighty per cent of
the coal industry signed a two-year agreement
Saturday permitting John L. Lewis the guaranty
of a "union shop." Six southern associations, led
by the Harlan faction, refused to sign.
Lewis' provision, designed to check the en-
croachment of the AFL's Progressive Miners of
America, has been the battleground during most
of the negotiations for peace, and the CIO
victory is a bitter dose to the coal industry. There
is a tenuous argument of legitimacy, then, to
support the Harlan operator's defection.
It was evident long before negotiations even.
began, however, that Harlan owners would not
sign an agreement with any union. They entered
the negotiations with no intention of settling the
controversy. For them the 45 days of bickering
constituted a shallow rite that meant nothing.
For twenty-odd years the Harlan owners have
nourished a golden goose. By preventing union-
ization they have kept the miners' wages at coolie
levels, far below the earnings of Northern miners.
In this way they have been able to undersell
Northern mines, to steal Northern markets. It
has proved a lucrative game, and they know
standardization-unionization-writes finis to
their exploitation.
For twenty years the Harlan County operators
fought clear of .unionization.
But last summer the Federal Government
entered the struggle on the miners' side, tried
to convict 69 Harlan companies and officials of
restricting civil liberties. Tle trial resulted in a
hung jury. The jubilation of the operators was
cut short, however, when the Department of
Justice announced its plans for a second, and
more thorough, trial Forced to acknowledge that
the jig was up, the operators signed an agree-
ment and the United Mine Workers moved in.
The CIO victory was short-lived. Effective only
until March 31 of this year., when the general
agreement covering the entire Appalachian coal-
fields expired, the contract was not renewed.
Nor was there ever any thought of renewing it.
Harlan operators had endured unionization
once; they did not propose to return to it volun-
tarily. Under the protection of militiamen sent
into Harlan by Gov. A. B. Chandler, the mines
are reopening. Many Harlan miners are going
back to work, no longer union men. They are
going back at the terms of the operators, back

Federal A rs Projects Are Valuable
Impetus For Real DemOcracy
By ELLIOTT MARANISS
By one of those strange paradoxes of history,
the great industrial catastrophe called the De-
pression has set in motion the first genuine and
vital national cultural movement in history. The
WPA arts projects have tapped a vein of artistic
ability, the existence of which no critic in Ameri-
ca had even suspected. A cultural renaissance is
taking place in the country; an honest attempt
is being made, for the first time, to give the arts
their place within the democratic process, and
the entire movement should be of special interest
to students here at the University.
In the summer of 1935 Harry Hopkins arrived
at a momentous conclusion: he decided that un-
employed artists, writers, musicians, actors and
historians get just as hungry as unemployed
laborers and engineers. He further decided that
their skills were just as worthy of conservation,
and the result was the establishment of tle
Federal Arts Projects, embracing all branches of,
fine and applied art, and intended to "maintain
the morale and skills of the professions and
artists."
Democracy In Action
The evolutionary process leading to the estab~-
lishment of the arts projects is one of the most
heartening examples of efficient democracy in
action. Trace the pattern step by step and the
arts projects emerge as the inevitable culmina-
tion of a well-planned work-relief program. Be-
fore 1932 nothing was done by the federal gov-
ernment about relief. Those were the dark days
of long breadlines and shanty towns and the
vagrant armies of unemployed men and women.
In 1932 the first governmental venture in relief
was undertaken. $300,000,000 was advanced to
the various states against their federal-aid road
appropriations, the money to be used for relief.
It was at this point that a change of far-reach-
Ing implications was introduced into the Ameri-
can scene. Critical observers of the American
cultural pattern began to feeV uneasy about the
psychological effects likely to be engendered by a
dole-relief system. The Roosevelt Administration
here passed its first test as a responsive, demo-
cratic regime, concerned with the well-being of
the people as responsible and feeling individuals:
by 1935 the government was not only keeping
the unemployed alive, but was also giving them,
an opportunity to work. The next step com-
pleted the pattern. Work relief, to be really
effective, ought to be diversified in such a way
as to provide the various occupational groups
on relief with jobs fitted to their training and
experience. Acting upon this principle the New
Deal established the Works Progress Adminis-
tration to provide useful jobs for the "employ-
able unemployed." Humane and social in origin
and conception, it was interested primarily in
the kind of work which had humane and social
consequences, and in this respect the Federal
ArtS Projects have been among its most fruitful
and socially useful undertakings.
*x * *
Projects Are Necessary
At this very moment there is a vociferous
movement in Congress and in some of the states
Heywood Broun
There are industrial isolationists in America.
Happy Chandler, the Governor of Kentucky,
seems to be one of them. After long negotiations
peace is promised in the coal industry. Eighty
per cent of those engaged
in the business are already
signed up on a basis which
appears to be mutually satis-
factory to both operators and
employees. Indeed, it is now
revealed that for many
weeks a large number of
the employers were not only
willing but even eager to
work in concert with the

United Mine Workers of America. The history of
coal in this country contains many chapters of
bloodshed and violence.
Better and more comprehensive organization
of the workers has made not for strife but for
increasing stability. Many leading operators have
admitted as much. It is true that two of the
operators, who would not permit their names
to be used, were shocked at the fact that the
President pressed for a peaceful settlement. I
read in one news account that, "according to
the amazing story told by the two operators,"
they were that "the time of riot and evictions
was over in this country."
It seems to me that amazement should come
from quite a different quarter. Are there really
intelligent people who still feel that the best way
to settle a labor dispute is to fight it out with
gas and guns and clubs? Are there many, or even
any, who would now back up the blasphemy of
Baer, who faced an earlier President with the
smug assertion that God in His infinite wisdom
has empowered the operators to rule as they
saw fit?
One might think that such queries were wholly
rhetorical, and that every sane man would
promptly say, "Why, of course, not." But that
leaves Happy Chandler, Governor of Kentucky,
out of -the reckoning. Happy has mobilized the
iilitia in protest against the agreement reached
by more than three-quarters of those involved
among both the employees and employers.
"Nobody can come into this State and cause
trouble," declared the Govenor. He seems to for-

to abolish the arts projects. The book-burners on
this side of the ocean, motivated by narrow
political considerations, are engaged in acrimon-
ious battles, digging up all the stereotyped argu-
ments of their trade in order to liquidate all
work-relief and get back to the dole. There are,
no doubt, legitimate criticisms to be made of the
projects: the efficiency can be increased, the
standards and work improved, partisanship
eliminated completely. But so long as we have
unemployed men in this country, and so long as
we exercise the democratic methods of keeping
them alive by putting them to work at useful
jobs, so long will there be a necessity for work-
relief in general, and the arts projects in par-
ticular.
Criticism and evaluation of the projects, then,
must arise from other than political considera-
tions. At this stage of our national development
it is irrelevant to argue the question of whether
or not we should send the unemployed back to
the dole: we have progressed beyond that stage
and to revert to it now would be a long step back-
ward. The only test which can justifiably be
applied to the arts projects at this point is this:
how well does the government do the work which
its work-relief projects undertake, and what is
its significance to the national cultural scheme.
Results Are Impressive
The record of accomplishment of the Federal
Arts Projects is difficult to appraise. It cannot
be stated glibly in numbers of concerts given or
books printed. But the figures do signify the
dissolution of those barriers which have previ-
ously caused American artists to stagnate in
poverty and despair. There is something electri-
fying in the realization that there have been
more than 100,000,000 admissions to concerts
given by the music project since 1935; that 9,000
federal theatre workers employed in 20 states
have played within four years to audiences total-
ling twenty-five millions; that the writers' pro-
ject has published more than 200 volumes, book-
lets, and pamphlets totalling nearly 15,000,000
words. There is something uniquely warming and
human in the reports of federal actors presenting*
Gilbert and Sullivan in Florida swamps, Shake-
speare on a hill-side, circuses in city parks; of
a vaudeville exhibition in an Oklahoma hospital
for the deaf; of the Michigan Music Project pre-
senting Beethoven for the patients at Eloise; of
a hundred thousand school children in the gar-
ment-district of New York, the factory towns of
New England and the South, the Pennsylvania
mining districts, and the remote plains of the
West, all seeing a live actor for the first time.
The WPA people-even the admin strators-
are interested in artistic experiment and are
concerned with art as a living thing, and not as
a museum record. American artists and Ameri-
can audiences have been brought face-to-face
for the first time. Previously the American audi-
ence was conceived to be a small group of people
who ostentatiously patronized the arts in order
to be considered "cultured." One of the greatest
contributions of the Federal Arts Projects has
been the removal of the impediments which
have stood between the people and the arts.
Millions of Americans are learning the value of
music, painting and the drama as intimate, daily
realities, and not as isolated things beyond their
understanding. The WPA has set in motion a,
great surge toward a free, democratic art, evolv-
ing from relatedness. "Art in America," said
Ford Madox Ford about the projects, "is being
given a chance, and there has been nothing
like it since the Reformation."
(The next article in this series will deal with the
work Of the specific projects in the Nation and in
Michigan.)

ONE COULDN'T guess the old_
gentleman's station in life as he 1
ambled into the crowded inn. His 1
high, stiff collar, black, tortoise-
shelled spectacles and unpressed suit
struck a decided professorial note.
But when he walked directly over
to our table and announced, throughI
flabby lips, "Gentlemen," one sensed
that his niche was less impressive
than a pedant's. We were reasonably1
certain when he smiled, baring aF
toothless gap save for two misshapen
incisors on one side of his mouh.
Even professors can afford occasional
dental attention.
"Gentlemen," he repeated, "II
have produced a pill which willI
prolong life, remove wrinklesj
from 'the aged and make you
grow as tall as the Bunker Hill
monument - -"
"Sit down," interrupted big Ed
Frutig. already visualizing the ad-
vantage such height would give an1
end ontan autumn Saturday. "Tell us
about it," he urged.
The old gent removed his hat with
a flourish, drew up a chair, extracted
two packages of cigarettes and in-
vited the foursome about the table
to "have a smoke!" At close range
his glasses looked remotely suspicious
of a Woolworth counter, and his1
sleeves were slightly frayed. When he
finally resumed his speech, it had1
little connection with pills for the
promotion of health and height.
"The winds blew, the rain fell, and
then all was quiet," he said reverently,
and then added, laughing, ". . . andt
there stood the schneider."
Denny Kuhmn and Ernie JohnsonF
looked up from their plate of chicken
livers long enough to exchange at
puzzled glance. A waiter passed byt
with a tray of beer, and the oldj
gent's eyes looked longinglyhafter
[iim. Aware now that response to hisI
unrelated conversation was a nega- I
tive one, the uninvited guest startedI
on a new tack.
"I was only kidding, fellows. I'm
no doctor. Just a schneider-a tailorj
-out for a little relaxation." He
smiled again, as though wishing to
impress his two lonesome teeth upon
the unimpressed quartet. Something1
about the man's peculiar sort of hap-
piness caught on, and the boys bc-
gan to egg him on. The waiter passed
with more beer, and old fellow immed-
iately launched a eulogy of Mil-
waukee.
"There's a great town," he
glowed. "You can get a huge glass
of beer there for a nickel, mind
you, five cents." He pursed his
lips suggestively and cast a covet-
ous look toward the bar in the
rear. "Say," he said, "to look at
me you wouldn't think that I went
to school with the Lafollette boys,
now would you? Yes sir, Bob, Jr.,
and Phil, I knew the old man, too.
There was a man for you, a real
man, honest as they come. Why,
he was governor of Wisconsin
three times and died a poor man.
That proves he was honest,
doesn't it, with all that graft
floating around? Not like them
kids. They get in office and what
happens? Boom, taxes go up!
But you can get some mighty
fine beer in Milwaukee."
We had finished our meals and
had started to excuse ourselves when
the old gent, an expression of mingled
disgust and resignation on his face,
dug into his pockets, muttering "Well,
I guess I'll have to buy myself a
beer." He was for the moment with-

out a smile.

'No War In Troy!'
When your reporter suggested in a column
several weeks ago that "No War In Troy," which
had its American premiere last night at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, might be-who
knows-next year's Drama Critics' Circle Prize
Award for the best foreign play, it was simply
wishful thinking. After witnessing the produc-
tion, it is too bad that we can't give our vote to
it, for it is marred by clumsy craftsmanship, in-
choate philosophies, and generally bad acting.
The action of "No War In Troy" takes place
before Cassandra is ravished, Hecuba widowed,
and Andromache dead; in short, before the Tro-
jan War takes place. Hector has just returned
to Troy to find that his brother Paris has abduct-
ed the fair Helen. It means war, and Hector
who has had his fill of it, will not tolerate the
idea. In the face of universal opposition, he
closes the gates of the city, but welcomes the
Greek ambassador, Ulysses, in an attempt to
negotiate peace. For the Trojan people, it is a
matter of national honor when Ulysses taunting-
ly calls Paris impotent in his relations with
Helen; thus they want war to preserve their
honor. But Hector wins the day and Ulysses
departs with sincere promise of peace. It is -only
when the Greek Ajax is murdered by an infuriat-
ed Trojan mob that the war actually begins.
This is the mere outline of Giraudoux' long-
winded drama. Although "No War In Troy" is
replete with the modern idiom, all the way from
international law," to "Iris dropping her girdle,"
Giraudoux has added nothing novel, ingenious,
or inventive to our theatre. He seems to have
attempted a satire in the vein of Anatole France,
Bernard Shaw, or our own sardonic John Er-
skine, with little of the red-hot pen point that
belong to them.
Such cartoons of classical fables as M. Girau-
doux has attempted to create for us are priceless
when they are highly skilled and when they
