Full Text

April 22, 1922. Mr. W. H. Comstock, General Manager, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad Co. Los Angeles, California. Bear Sir: Wish you would kindly note the writings of this Bolsheviki editor, not only the marked copy, but other writings in this issue such as "Big 16 Union Labor" ad, etc. It is just such propaganda that causes unrest and uncertainty in an employee's attention to duties, and destroys the morale of whatever little organization a foreman, or head of a Department might have created. The owner of the Review has leased the paper to this man, who came here as a divorcee and is unknown to all good citizens, but from the issues of the Review since he assumed control, it is very evident that he is against the Railroad and all of its interests. I well know it is not the policy of the Railroad to enter into the petty newspaper business, but there are exceptions to all rules. This paper could be purchased by the Company unbeknownst to any one, and run by some good press man who would spread the right propaganda and save us much trouble and taxation in this and Lincoln Counties, if not over the entire line. Our recent bond issues, which I personally explained to you last week, could possibly have been suppressed if given the right publicity some months ago, and we are now entering into an election this fall which means much to us; but with this kind of Bolsheviki stuff handed to the careless thinking public each week, we are sure to be under the "Rule or Ruin" regime after election. Let's see if we cannot put the matter up to Mr. Calvin in the right light and buy this paper, which will not only be of inestimable value to us in educating the employees, but will be a profitable investment, as I know from the amount of business they have carried on through the bank in the past.
