TIPE~ KALONA NEWS Learning Sea Trade at 'Little Annapolis' Washington, D. C. HOME-GROWN FASCISTS After three months of temporizing with native Fascist champions, At. torney General Francis Biddle is finally going to get tough--on direct personal orders of the President. Roosevelt directed Biddle to take vigorous legal action against cer- tain factional leaders who have been publicly den~ncing the war against the Axis and in some instances ac- tually expressing pleasure over Jap victories. Complaints have poured into Washington from parents of boys in the armed services demanding that these domestic foes be jailed. But Biddle demurred on the ground of "preserving civil liberties." Shortly after Pearl Harbor, FBI agents arrested Robert Noble, rabid Los Angeles Fascist leader, on seri- ous charges involving statements concerning the war. Despite the FBI's evidence, Biddle ordered Noble released. This brought down a storm of protests on Biddle's head that stead- ily increased as the hostile opera- tions of these elements became bold- er and more outspoken. Still Biddle refused to allow either the FBI or federal district attorneys, who were champing at the bit, to crack down. Finally White House advisers, alarmed over the situation, took the matter direct to the President. They laid before him a mass of evidence dealing with Noble, Father Cough- lin, Francis P. Moran of Boston, Gerald L, K. Smith of Michigan and Charles B. Hudson of Omaha. One document shown Roosevelt was the March 16 issue of Coughlin's weekly publication which declared that a "world-wide sacred war" was declared against Germany nine years ago. The publication also at- tacked aid to Russta, denounced the British bombing of French plants making Nazi supplies, and contained such statements as: "Unless the German forces can overcome Russia and successfully invade England by the end of Sep- tember, there is every evidence that the entire world will have elected to experinee a blood bath the like of which Ms never imagined by the most poetic minds."--"It has been the practiced policy of the Roose-i v~It administration to favor the Chi- i nose in their war against Japan.

GOOD WAR NEWS Here is some all-important GOOD war news for a change. The United States and the Brit- ish Empire have won a victory of supreme importance in the crucial war production race. For the first time in the 2~ years of the war the United States and Britain now are out-producing the Axis and its vassal states in vital arms and munitions. Although the two allies still are on the defensive, henceforth Anglo- American war output should pile up an ever-increasing margin of arma- ment superiority. U. S. producing capacity in par- ticular is just beginning to swing into an all-out war scale. The mighty i i: auto industry, for example, is now being furiously converted. Other major industries are undergoing the same transformation. Also hundreds of new war plants are in various stages of completion, with hundreds of o~ers being projected. Sage old "Bernie" Baruch com- ments: "We can't yet crack our heels together in celebration, even if things are better." What he means is that there are still plenty of sour spots. Some of these are: labor supply, certain obstacles in the flow of ma- terials, shortage of materials, in. adequate use of equipment, insut- ~ rating the original expedition, when Gen.

On the basis of a private survey made by the authors of this column, it can be stated definitely that with the British Empire's greatly accelerated production the two Allies now are ahead of the Axis. Note: The survey was limited on the Allied side to the U. S. and British Empire because it is impos- sible to get detailed information about Russian production. --Buy Defense Bonds-- MERRY-GO-ROUND Congressional critics of President Roosevelt are caustically denounced by A, F. Whitney, white.crested president of the Railroad Trainmen, in the latest issue of the union's magazine. In a lead editorial Whit- ney declares, "No congressman or congressional committee, no sena. tvr or group in the senate, no Axis agent or anyone else seeking to use the war to discredit the President will throw any sand in our eyes in any way useful in their desire to advance a selfish, ignoble nurvose."
