C. W. Editor On W. Coast; Story of Lettuce Workers

Summary: Tells of many meetings and talks around San Francisco. Recalls the union busting and violence against lettuce workers near Salinas. Laments the lack of leaders to bring Catholic social teaching to the workers. Wants “fellow travelers with the poor and dispossessed,” who will spread the Gospel, recognizing that the poor are “creatures of body and soul.” (The Catholic Worker, May 1940, 1, 6, 8. DDLW #356).
