"Supplement" Your Life
       Insurance
     Much is said about the low cosl group insurance and its importnnce. particularly
in times of depression.

     Important as low cost is, other considerations must be borne in mind. and group
insurance should be used to SUPPLEM ENT and not to SUPPLANT individual
insurance.

     Individual insurance has benefits which cannot be included in the low cost group
policies, such as cash and loan values which grow eaeh year, automatic premium
loans, and other liberal benefits.


    The most popular individual policies are:

                      Straight Life: Best for providing for one's
                           dependents, because of the low
                           premium s.
                      Twenty Payment Life: Simi lar to the
                         Straight Life. except that premiums
                         are all paid in twenty years.

                      Twenty Year Endowment: A combination
                         of savings and insurance. You get
                         the mOlley yourself at the end of
                         twenty years; or in case of your pre·
                         mature death, the money goes imme·
                         diately to your beneficiaries.


     We also    have other forms of life insurance such as Joint Life policies for
Husband and     Wife, Endowment policies maturing at Age 65, as well as special
insurance for   children, the Family Income Plan, and policies arranged to sell at the
low premium     of one dollar a month .


BUY ALL THE CROUP INSURANCE POSSIBLE, BUT HAVE IT SUPPLEMENT
    AND NOT SUPPLANT YOUR INDIVIOUAL INSURANCE PROTECTION,

      SAME OLD MELODRAMA

                      -SAME VILLAIN-REFURBISHED FOR BROADWAY

                              IN AGE ~ OLD ATTACKS ON UNIONS.

               What we are witnessing in New York. and what we arl! likely to witness in the
      coming months of labor ddlarion. should not surprise any veteran unionist, o r any
      social-minded person. There is nothing new in the situation. It is the same old melo-
      drama. rigged. framed . staged, and presented by secret. highly-financed open-shop
      leagues.

              Anti-union leagues ha\'!.' national offices in New York City. Some of these
      make it a daily business to rig. (rame, and organize cases against labor unions in the
      courts. One league supports an expensive staff of lawyers. dr:l\ving high fees. These
      fees are gathered from the length and breadth of the land. On good authority. one
      league alone collects $1.000,000 a year with which to fight unions in the courts.

              The leagues a re secret organizations. Their membership is never made public.
      Their activities other than legal are not revealed. They hold their mel!tings behind
      closed doors. They push their tentacles into every municipal activity.

              Bear in mind tbat the passage of the anti ~ injunction bill by the Cong ress of the
      United States. in March. 1932, with huge majorities. which bill was signed by the
      President of the United States, and is now a Jaw. was a public rebuke to the activities
      of tbese anti-union leagues. The Congress of the United States signified that these
      leagues were pursuing devious. secretive and anti -socia l courses.

              In New York. Local No.3 has been selected as the st rategic point of attack
      against the entire organization, both because it is our largest local. and because of a
      greater concentration of industrial workers. In March, 1930, one anti-union league met
      at a New York HOIel-in sccret-.lnd outlined an t'Xtended campaign against the electrical
      workers' union, New h:-gal actions against the electrica l workers' union were pressed.

               Soon afler new court actions did materialize in CXtroit. Baltimore and elsewhere.
      But these were side-shows. The itching. gold~induced lust to destroy unionism was
      hurrying toward a carnival of the dimensions of a circus. It was to be staged in New
      York City. back«l by high-powered propaganda. on a national scale, designed not only
      to injure irrepa rably the local union of the electrical workers, but [0 damage. if pos~
      sible. and as it could, the international organization. It is the opening acts of this
      obsce ne, major maneuver of the anti-union leagues, which we are now witnessing in
      New Y ork City.

               Nothing has been, or nothing apparently is too degraded for these leagues to
      stoop to. Show-windowed by smart. genteel lawyers, using high-flown lega l terms ,
      and mouthing p latitudes about industrial liberty, these lawyers carry on in the dark.
      w ork. which ca n not bear the scrutiny of decent mcn. I t is a fact tbat this office has dis-
      covered editorials attacking this organization in the press of Los Angeles, Cincinnati,
      T o ledo, and ot her cities using the same phrases. indicating a common. inspired source.
Ap1'il,1992                     The Jow-nal 01 Electrical H'ol'kers and Operators                           175




              These editorials. when placed alongside the legal briefs of these anti~union leagues.
              reenforce the cheap arguments and allegations olTered by the lawyers of the league in
              courts of law-a llegations which have not been sustained by judges' decisions in ordcr
              to strike the BrOlherhood a damaging blow. There is evidence that the campaign against
              the New York local union is being supported by a heavily financed publicity committee.
              which is flooding the press. not only of New York but of tbe United States and Canada
              with unsubstantiated charges, which. if uttered against individuals. would be cause for
              libel suits.

                    tj One of the discouraging facts about the presl.'nt situation is that newspapers,
              considered reputable institutions. lel"d them~elves to the publicity aims of these open
              shop leaglles. and publish stories which violate every decent p rofessional canon of good
              journalism.
                       If organized labor were on to itself in New York. it would fail to buy or read
              any ncwspapt'r which refused to accord to unions the same rights of common decency
              that it gives other groups.

                       These anti~union leagues. pursuing their devious course. in New York and other
              CllIes, aided by commercially-minded newspapers, publish stories based on unsustained
              cbarges brought by the leagues in courts, as if tbose charges were SUSfained, and when
              not sustained by couns, fail to publish the reversal with the same emphasis and promi-
              nence. Publicity. tainted publicity, against unions is one of the aims of these $Ccret,
              anti-union leagues.

                       The lawyer agents of these leagues are not above abetting disgruntled members
              of union organizations (of which there arc always some. in good times or bad) in
              their attacks on the union organization.

                    q The aim of these anti-union lawyers now is the same as it was in 1921, in 1907,
              in 1902- to destroy unionism. They fatten on the misfortunes of working people,
              They strike hardl.'st in times of depression, when misery and suffering have confused the
              minds of union men, whl.'n union funds are low, when maladjustments the size of mole
              hills grow to mountain size. They take the money that workers return to corporations,
              collect it. aSSl.'mble it, to fight worker organizations-all the time with a smug, self-
              righteous, hypocritical air.

                    g Attacks upon thl.' electrical workers' loral union are timed with the general wage-
              cutting, deflationary drive against the building trades,

                    C) These lawyl'r propagandists have been nonplussed by the electrical workers'
              union-because the elecnical workers' union has been advanced in industrial relations.
              These anti-union leagues thrive on strikes. Strikes are their meat. But electrical workers
              have looked upon the strike as a costly weapon of defc,"ce. and have eschl.'wed its usc
              except in cases of the last resort, and this policy has plagued the anti- u nion leagues,
                       "What," tbey asked themselves, "if other unions adopted the same plan? Sup-
              pose co-oper,Hive industrial relations spread in other industries? \Vbcre would we lre-
              we who make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in feeding upon bad ind ustrial
              relations?"

                    Cj In appea n ng in cou rts against unions. these lawyers have had only one conten-
              tion. "conspiracy in restraint of trade." They have asked for dozens of injunctions
176                       The Jow'nat of Electrical JVOl'ke1'S and Operators                         April. 1932




       upon this ouC-worn. threadbare plea. But without the strike to aid them. conspi racy
       is hard to allege. when none exists.      So they have sought-in order to fUrl her their
       nefarious traffic-to set up the fiction that the very act of co-operation between workers
       and employers is in it~lf a conspi racy in restraint of trade.

             They have but one goal-destruction of the union. But they travel it by many
      paths. They slander; they assassinate char,leler. They plant stool pigeons and spies.
      They spend money like bandits. and always, always keep the wheels of publicity well-
      oiled.

                They acc powerful. They have much money. They have the backing of big
      newspapers. They are smart. and gemce!. and tbey know well how to prey upon
      hum;'!n weaknesses. Some disgruntled, suspended union members go over to them
      Ideal istic, misguided union members, who long for the millennium, sometimes heed them.
      \Vell-intentioned. union sympathizers are sometimes uken in by them.

                 But they will not succetd in their allll to destroy the union. They will injure
      .lnd damage it. perh.lps, but they will not bre.lk it. Why? Because unions-a re socially
      valu;'!b le organizations. Too m;:IDY clear-eyed. self-respecting. compete nt craftsmen make
      up the union's membership. These craftsmen are inured to such attacks. They know
      where they come from. and they are not going to be misfed by lies. innuendos. inspired
      propaganda. and dccisions of injunction judges. 10 do anything to damage their own
      org,lnization.

              These will weather the storm-the sober. 95 per cent of the organization. and
      they will remember. They will remember the newspapers who slander the union.
      They will remember the employers, who. feigning friendship. aid the enemies of union-
      ism. They will remember the loyalty of loyal members. and not forget tbe treason
      against the group of the weak and disloyal.

             No matter what cou rse the engineered attacks upon our local unions take.
      none of these auacks can succeed, when members remember the union. the union's needs,
      the union's benefits, and the union's social dnd industrial importance.

              Let no one be deceived by lies. Let no one be dcceived by pompous newspaper
      publicity-the aim of the anti-union le.lgucs is to destroy the union, and the responsi-
      bility of all union men. and all social-minded men e\·erywhere. is to preserve the union.

      newest. open-shop drive will fail. as ochers have failed in the past.

      the lawyer attackers succ«d against the electrical workers, and they will turn and attack
      other organizations just as viciously--despite fulsome. hypocritical protestations 10 the

      earners, but they won't succeed. But Ihal docs not make Ihe battle less ha rsh. painful
      and costly. Wise union men will sit tight. keep cool. think clearly. and repel tbe
      invader. I t is by t h is course that t he un ion grew and prospered.

                 Charles P. Ford had a secret-the secret of sympathy. To himself he drew all sorts
           and conditions of men: won their confidence and loyalty: and without show or selfishness
           helped them work together constructively. In consequence, thousands of men in the United
           States and Canada. who were touched by him personally. by word of mouth or by letter.
           now feel that his death brought an irrrpa rabl e loss. not only to this o rganization, but to
           their private minds and hearts.
                 Those who kn l'w Ford best knew his fr~ and humorous nalure. He could laugh. He
           never permitted the dark. serious aspects of life to rob him of Quick, boyish bughter.         At
           times. this humor hardened down to a keen. cynica l comment on men's weaknesses. their
           perverseness. their refusal to sink personal animosities in a great cause. Yet be never lost
           faitb in men. This was one of his strong points of auraction for all types of men. He
           had faith. And it was btcause he had faith in men and events that he was permitted to
          do imporlant things for men. to build. to conSlrtlCI. to leave lasting testimonies of his presence
          on earth behind.
                 This quick, personal sympathy and underst.tnding had a public aspect. It widened to
          include all down-trodden folk. He ne\'er lost his contact with common life. There was
          nothing upstage or remote about Ford. He was one of us-always. And those, who knew
          him best. knew him to burn with indignation at all sorts of social injustice. It was this
          indignation that drove him his full adult life to do something for his people. He would
          not rest. he could not rest. He had to ~ building and doing-and, no doubt. this ext ravagant
          expenditure of himself shortened his mortal days.
                Other men have sympathy, .lnd other men Me impatient at social injustice. and can do
          nothing about it. Ford had other great qualities-thoughtfulness, (or inS13nce.           He could
          think patiently. and unhurriedly. in a room, alone. He had an engineer's practical senw.
f         and an engineer's ability to go through to the bOllom of things.            His interest in labor
          in surance was prompted by his desire to do something for downtrodden people. but his
          ability to launch a gre.. t legal reserve life insurance company belonged to another category.
          He had busin('ss sense and competency.          Don't forget it, he could have succeeded maekedly
          in other than the labor field.      He worked there because his heart was there.
                He loved order. He hated messiness. He was alw"ys against sloppy industrial re lations.
          and always strong for intelligent. r.1tiona l indUStrial relations.     He thought conference was
          better than warfare. and he thought researc h more imporunt than violence.
                 Born in the midwest, he knew pove rty . lI e saw people s uffer. He never forgot. As
          a young man. he held important technical positions in the General Electric company . then
          a young concern. He joined Local Union No. 247. Schenectady. in 1902. and kept con-
          tinuous membership there. His com rades raised a fund to send him to tbe Salt Lake City
          convention in 1903. and he never missed a com'ention after tha(. In 1912, when he became
          International Secretary. he had to make the choice between an executive position in the General
          Electric Corporation, and leadership in a struggling union.          He took the unselfish course,
          and he never turned hack. Through union dissension. and a great W.lf, he gave himself
          prodigall}'. broke his health. resigned-but could not give up. Came back. when he could
          bener have rested. founded labor's first old-l ine life insurance company. acted as chairman
          of the International Executive Council. and performed countless unrecorded services.
                It was on a trip [0 the midwest on union business. that he took ill. kept going when
          an ordina ry man would have laken to hospital. finished the job. returned home, burning
          with fever. borne up only by his colossal courage, and ever-ready humor: took to bed. and
          put up a fight which all but won a ,tictory. His last words on e.. rth were for someone else.
          not himself.
                 If lives of great men mean anything. they mean their work should be continu ed. They
          contrive to give other men vision. and tools to work with. Ford did. He was never con -
          tent with things as they are. He always knew there W.1S a ~tter way to do things. He
          worked for that way. To do anything else is to profane the memor), of one who lo\'('d
          m('n. and worked for them. Ilis m('mory has the power to light the wa)'.

              For inst.ance, you can insure:

                     The profits on a horsc or automobile race in thc cvent the elements
                 are against you and it rains;
                      The f(afe transit of cargoes of grai n, coal or merchandise;
                      Your automobile against los8, damage or lawsuits;
                      Your jewels and money against robbery and holdup;
                      Your house and furnishings in cnsc of ftre or storms.

              All of these coverages-and many more-can be scc ured in varying degrees of
          amount!-l nnd premiums. In each case there may be a 10_'>8--or there may not.

                      It may rain on the day of the races  . .
                      Cargocs may not reach their destinations
                      Your car may be stolcn 01' you may hit a pedestrian .
                      You may lose money and jewels in a holdup 01' burglary
                      Your house and furnishings may go up in smoke or wind


              If any of these calamities happpn the insuring company pays the loss : if they
          do not happcn you have had the protcction find pcnce of mind.

II Now more than ever, one must read and think.

II The stock crash of 1929 marked the end of an era-the
post-war era.

II Great changes are in the making.    This was true following
the panic of 1893, when busine~q entered upon an era of huge
consolidations and combinations.

II What today's changes are have not yet become clear, but they
are destined to be of importance to nil working people.

CJ The Electrical Workers' Journal has won a reputation for
getting the facts and interpreting them.

II It is capable of describing today's great changes so that you
will see t.heir signiilcallce tlramaLically.

    UCCESS of the capitalistic form of society

S    in the United States depends on solving.
     quickly. the problem of better distribution
of wealth.
     Our basic problem today is the intelligent
division of OUf wealth between consumers' funds
and capital funds. Our whole economic Slructure
has changed over a period of years.   At one time
thrift meant intelligent saving of one's income.
Today thrift must be defined as intelligent spend-
ing. All surplus earnings today flow into a great
pool controlled by a few men. The owners of
these surpluses want them to return dividends.
which means that they undertake more produc-
tion. and we reach the place where we cannot
consume all the goods.
