DEEP BLUE SEA

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Massachusetts Society for Freedom in Teaching, which was formed recently to protect teachers against Hearst, the American Legion, and the D. A.

This provision will make it of immense value as an organization to influence legislators against the reactionary lobbies. If their publicity is handled well, and if they sincerely go out for membership in their special groups on a large scale, they should become a power in votes almost as important as the opposition.

The new group, of course, does not in the least step on the skirts of the Teachers' Union. The first will be a power in itself, and the Union will cooperate through its alliance to the awesome lobby of the A. F. of L.
