Republic Steel
Guards Broke
Monroe Strike
Civil Liberties Committee
Told Of Assault Made'
With Clubs, Tear Gas
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1-(P)-The
Senate Civil Liberties Committee re-
ceived testimony today that volun-
teer policemen equipped with tear
gas, billies and baseball bats pur-
chased by the Republic Steel Corp.
dispersed pickets outside the Monroe,
Mich., plant of that company. 5
That done, the 1937 strike in "Little
Steel" was ended, so far as Monroe
was concerned. But prior to that time,
witnesses said, a Negro organizer had
been severely beaten and run out of
town, after fruitless appeals to the
police, and supervisors in the plant
inspired a group of workers to send
,p telegram protesting the strike to
John L. Lewis. The message was giv-
en wide publicity.
In the weeks following, nervous
at reports that CIO men in other
cities intended to invade Monroe,
James S. Torbic, Republic's police
chief there, received "undergover in-
formation" from a mysterious "Jack
Smith" and ultimately paid him
$1,000 lest, he said, the man sue him
and the Senate committee learn that
such tactics were being used.
"As I thought it 'out later," said
Torbic, "I think he just plain black-
mailed me."
The day's evidence was presented
by a score of witnesses, rr nging from
Monroe's mayor, Daniel Knaggs, who
told of his dealings with Republic for
the purchase of anti-strike muni-
tions, to a group of steel workers,
some still employed by -the plant
there and others now on WPA.

plan already has been realized. First
proposed by members of the present-
day' English group of the Modern
Language Association in 1929, the
Linguistic Atlas was actually begun
in 1931. A staff of trained workers,
with the collaboration of Yale and
Brown universities and more than 400
informants who volunteered their'
time, finally gathered the material
which has been analyzed and present-
ed in the form of 730 large maps
showing regional distribution of vo-
cabulary and pronunciation differ-
ences throughout New England. This
sectional atlas will be published this
That the University of Michigan is
likely to be the focal point for lin-
guistic geography in the Middle West
is evidenced by the undertaking which
will begin this month. Two investiga-
tors trained by Dr. Hans Kurath,
director of the New England Atlas,
during the Linguistic Institute here
in 1936, will take the field in order
to .make samplings of southern Michi-
gan and Indiana speech.
Each will spend about fifteen hours
with every informant selected. The
informant must be not younger than
70, born of American stock, with not
more than a grade-school education,
and with a life-long residence in his
community. T h e s e informants'
answers to the more than 400 ques-
tions asked them will tell the investi-
gators in what part of this region
"spider" is used instead of "frying
pan," and "tunnel" is used instead of'
"funnel," and what were the names
and expressions used for hundreds of
objects and foods and activities hard-
ly known by the present generation.
That many differences will ap-
pear in the survey is certain f ;om
the circumstances that the region in-3

Northern Indiana settlements were

those of Central Indiana to the move-

pioneers up through Kentucky from
the Cumberland Gap and across the
Ohio river.

Attacks on the parole system are
seldom made on the basis of the
theory of parole, however, Bush said.
The administration of the penal and

targets, he stated, although these
attacks are not always justified,

Some Fun, Eh Jake .. .
"Hitting niggers with his club" may
be a sport when policing in Dayton,
Ohio, but Jake Powell is finding out
that baseball and Judge Kenesaw
Mountain Landis have a high idea of
racial integrity-where the gate re-
ceipts are concerned.
It seems that the trouble all
started when the club-loving
Powell admitted in a radio broad-
cast that he was slightly prema-
ture with his batting practice.
From what Powell considered
sport- has come repercussions
which may evict Mr. Powell from
organized baseball.
As soon as the good judge heard
about the incident, he rose in all his
wrath to protect baseball's good
name. He suspended the Yankee out-
fielder for 10 days because, as the
Judge put it, he made "uncompli-
mentary remarks about a portion of
the population."
The Judge's stand seems aw-
fully equivocal. Members of the
colored race are not allowed in
Big League baseball. This itself
is paradoxical in our democracy.
But since this is baseball tradi-
tion and since baseball tradition
must be preserved in spite of its
opposition to constitutionalism,
there seems little that can be said
about this phase.
But as soon ,as "a portion of the
population" has been slandered, the
slanderer is punished and every pos-
sible balm is prepared to sooth the
It looks as though Negroes
aren't good enough to play ball
with the great white folks but
as long as they have the buck-
ten to pay for their seat it's good
policy to appease them. It seems

The solution of course is simple.
Let the Negroes play ball. They'd
probably show up many of our whit
stars just as-they have in track, foot-
ball, basketball (except in Big Ten
schools) and in other sports they've
Another point of the Judge's
policy that might be questioned
is Landis' right to dictate player
opinion. That Powell's Intoler-
ance and narrowness is unde-
sirable cannot be denied but that
Judge Landis is so wise and Ib-'
eral that he can play censor to
baseball player's thoughts is an-
other thing entirely. Judge Lan-
dis represents official baseball
thought not individual thought.
Unless the Liberty League slipped
a law through when I wasn't
looking, individual players are
entitled 4to beliefs, bigoted and
narrow as they may be, just as
individual citizens are entitled to
But if the suspension of Powell
stands, and it is very likely that this
ballplayer may be ostracized from
baseball because he was foolish
enough to believe it fine sport to beat
other people, another precedent will
be established. In the future, base-
ball players will play Charlie Mc-
Carthy to Czar Landis' Bergen.
