"I hclieve in tlie United State of America nnd tlic prin-
ciples of freedom justice equality and humanity iwn which it
was founded and for which American patriots have given their
liven and fortunes.
"I believe it is my duty towards my country to love it; to
support its constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag;
and to defend it against all enemies."
MORE LIGHT IS NEEDED.
With a tic-up in the coal industry of the nation scheduled
to start April 1. except for those directly connected with it. the
country is in the dark regarding many of the most important
facts involved in the controversy. It is known of course that
lini rifnspd tn meet the representatives of
the minors' TM'ii ation for the purose of considering a new
cont rait pm i is a's.i known that the attitude of the miners is
that of demanding wage increases and other concessions from
the operator hut aside from these general outlines of the issue
which bodes ill for the entire country the public is not in osses-
sion of information upon which to base an opinion regarding the
merits of the dispute.
Why do the operators refuse to carry out the agreement pre-
viously entered into for negotiations looking to a new contract?
What are the arguments unon which the miners base their demand
for wape increases at a time when prices in all lines are slump-
ing? What are the conditions in the coal industry which justify
the series of demands made Uxn the operators? What wages
arc the miners making and how do their earnings compare with
those of other classes of workers? Are the miners making wages
that will enable them to maintain proper living conditions? In
answer to these questions by going to the operators and to the
miners one may get much information but since it comes from
those who are parties to the controversy and who are necessarily
biased" in their views a just verdict cannot be founded upon evi-
dence coming from such sources.
' Extended investigations have been conducted covering the
coal industry at various times and voluminous reports have 1ecn
issued but what is needed now is a simple statement of the facts'
derived from unprejudiced disinterested sources' and it' would
seenr that the federal department of labor or. the secretary of
commerce should be able to supply the information needed putting
it into such succinct form that it can be easily understood. The
public is something more than an innocent bystander in a con-
troversy of this kind; it is bound to be a victim of the disaster
along with the parties who are directly involved in it. The federal
government has been exerting all its influence to avert the strike
but since its efforts seem to have come to naught it can scarcely
render more valuable service than to supply the facts upon which
the public may base an intelligent opinion of the issues at stake.
COTTON SPINNING ACTIVITY.
Interesting and important statistics concerning activities in
the cotton mills of the United States are contained in a bulletin
issued by the Department of Commerce through the Bureau of
According to announcement made by the authority here quoted
. 36.87995.3 spindles were in place on February 28 1922 of which
33797329 were operated at sonic time during the month com-
. pared with 34457509 for January. '34.485.341 for December 34-
48669 for November 34221.646' for October 33898415 for Sep-
tember and 32496856 for February 1921. The aggregate num-
ber of active spindle hours reported for the month was 7119576-
600. Rased on an activity of 23 2-3 clays (allowance being made
for the observance of Washington's Birthday in some localities)
for 8.7 hours per day the average number of spindles operated
during February was 34577837. This number compared with an
average of 35751.715 for Tanuary 34154410 for December 36-
074401 for November 34579765 for October and 34322831 for
. September. '
From data obtained for the individual establishments the
regular hours of operating per week (single shift) "in the cotton
mills vary from 48 in a number of states to as high as 60 in
others. Weighing the number of spindles with the prevailing hours
. for the several mills it is found that the regular hours of opera-
. tion per day on a single shift basis for the entire country is 8.7
which was used in the computation above. The average number
of active spindle hours per spindle in place for the month was 193.
STATE COMMITTEE TO MEET. 1
I . A call has been issued for a meeting of the Democratic State
Central Committee in Oklahoma City on Thursday April 6. At
.this meeting the business of the retiring committee will be wound
. .up and organization of the new committee will-be perfected.
: . Jt is announced that Hon. Cordell Hull chairman of the
Democratic National Committee will attend' this meeting aitd will
f deliver an address. Urging the attendance of all members of the
committee the chairman says : "Let us send the message to the
; democrats over the state that their State Central Committee to a
man and to a woman is on the firing line ready to lead to a great
democratic victory. Let this first meeting of . the new. .State
; Central Committee be a record breaker and by your presence you
- will enable the new organization to proclaim that the campaign
of 1922 is opened in every county in Oklahoma."
Conditions are now ideal for pushing the civic improvement
campaign in the city. Every property owner and resident should
take pride in furthering this important movement. The commit-
tees in charge of . the street marking should be encouraged to com-
plete their work without delay. Beautify your yard and parking.
Bear in mind the slogan: "A tree some flowers and a can of
.paint." ' . -
