When stock prices are extremely overvalued and don't seem justified, the stocks are sometimes referred to as "castles in the sky." By Roy C. THE RIGHT TO WORK- A voice from the past. When I went to work for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Company in 1939, everywhere I went, old timers encouraged me to join the union as soon as I could. By old timers I mean employees who had been with the railroad forty or fifty years. They knew first hand of the dedication it took to organize and form committees to negotiate for higher wages and better working conditions. We are aware of the secret black-ball code used by politicians are trying to paint a "To those class, the inalienable picture of prosperity if the right to right to work means simply the work were made into law. Hog-wash! inalienable right to the employer, The following reprint from The without let or hindrance, to go out Traln Dispatcher used by pormission in the open market and bid for is an article written by the noted Lawyer Clarence Darrow: "So long and vociferously have been the enemies of trade unions declared for the open shop that no doubt many of them really believe that they are fighting for some principle of liberty and justice, not to serve their selfish ends. Mainly their arguments consist in various laborers on the hardest terms or, rather, to so order that industrial world that all men and women and children must bid against each other for a right to toil. ~No Organized government and no powerful body of men ever really made any demand or enforced any means that would give to every working man an inalienable right to railroad managements throughout statements of the assumption that work. All the rights a labor has the country. When a person who had every man has an inalienable right under the law, or under present been engaged in union work left to work when he pleases, for what industrial methods, is the r~ght to their employment, they were given wages he pleases, and for whom he go from employer to employer in a service letter.

We are also aware of the struggle coal miners faced in order to better themselves. The mine war on Cabin Creek, Matewan, and the Baldwin- Felt Detectives armed with rifles and riding horseback causing havoc on Loup Creek of the C. & O. There is no double in my mind the unions were good for and needed by the working people, otherwise the movement would not have succeeded. During the present era, labor unions seem to be losing their strength in-bargaining power. The present generation of the work force probably have no idea of the struggle the working men faced in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Are we facing a return to the old days? Anti union "right to work" cannot be taken away, and it is cannot force himself upon an obvious that under present employer; but he may be denied this conditions no such right exists. In fact, it is stoutly contended for by the very men who have taken away every opportunity that would give a laborer a right or chance to work. "Men cannot labor without an inalienable right upon any reason or pretext, no matter what. "The great mass of work men today have practically nothing but their hands. Where are they to go to enforce this inalienable right? opportunity to apply his hands to "No one knows better then the some of the bounties of nature, to masters of industry that they may some material from which things are be denied this inalienable right upon made; and still the inalienable right the master's will; and should trade to work is insisted upon by those unionism be destroyed, the will who have taken all the coal, and ore, would be harder and more arbitrary, and lumber; who control all the factories and railroads, all the land, and every means to which man might apply his toil. "There can be no inalienable right to work without a place to work, and neither the government nor those who declaim the loudest or insist the most have ever furnished the laborer and the right to work far less available than it is today. "The inalienable right to work is a bit of birdlime, used to catch the unthinking mass; and society and all industrial life must be made over, or at least radically changed, before such right is anything except a far- off dream. movement is prevalent and some a place to toil.
