YONKERS HAS THE CUCK
Citizen Complains That the Birds Are
Somewhat Too Attentive to
A proud but truthful resident of
Yonkers admitted that there were a
lot of cuckoos there. He wasn't proud
of the cuckoos, particularly. As far as
cuckoos are conceried, his pride is
strictly civic. If one must have
cuckoos, he prefers the Swisr kind,
which are vocal only when wound up
and then only at intervals.
The Yonkers cuckoo doesn't have to
be wound up. The imported eight-day
cuckoo is a piker beside thie Yonkers
cuckoo. The Yonkers euckoo stays
awake half the night waiting for the
dawn and each has the same pride in
being the first to salute the earliest
gleam of the sky that a farmer's wife
has in gettag her washing out before
a neighbor a line is strung.
From the moment that the night be
comes faintly luminous until about
9:35 a. i. the air is tremulous with
euckoos. From 9:35 to 10:05, the
cuckoos knock off for lunch. Then
they're at it agaiin until dark. They
yelp "cu-k-oo" at every resident of
Yonkers they see ant even at strang
ers from P'eekskill. When the street
is utterly deserted they murmur
"cuck-oo, cuck-oo" just for practice.

Plans have been made to build a

hold back a volume of water equal to

the height of the Woolworth building

LOYAL EMPLOX. I5
Tell President Harding t*
New Men Must Be Prot ]
in Strike Settlemen
NOT A MATTER OF E
Faithful Employees Have Both Legal
and Moral Rights to Seniority
and Other Benefits.
New York.-The keynote of the re
ply made by railway executives repre
senting more'than 180 Class I Rail
roads of the United States to the prop
6sition of President Harding, that "all
strikers be returned to their work and
their former positions with seniority
and other rights unimpaired," lies In
I the l-st paragraph from their reply
to the President as follows:
"It is submitted that the strik
ing former employees cannot be given
preference to employees at present in
the service without doing violence to
every principle of right and justice
involved in this matter. and without
the grossest breach of faith on the
part of the railroads to the men at
present in their service.
"Under these circumstances, it be
comes apparent that the railroads
cannot consider any settlement of the
present strike which does not pro
vide protection in their present em
ployment both to the loyal employees
who remained in the service and. to
the new employees entertg it."
The executives had accepted the
first two conditions proposed by the
President, namely, that both employ
ers and employees accept the decisions
of the Labor Board, and that all law
suits growing out of the strike be
withdrawn: and in relation to the
third condition spoke not only as
quoted above, but also as follows:
Agree With the President
"The railroad executives and man
agers agree entirely with the Presi
dent's statement in his letter that 'it is
wholly unthinkable that the Railroad
Labcr Board can be made a useful
agency of the Government in nmintain
tng industrial peace in the railway
ervice unless enploiycrs and workers
are both prompt and unquestioning in
their acceptance of its decisions.'
"Many men in the service refused to
join the strike and in so doing were
assured of the seniority rights accru
Ing to them and of the permanence
of their positions. On some important
lines 50 per cent or more refused to
join the strike. To these old loyal em
ployees have been added thousands
of new men who were employed and
cold be secured only upon a definite
cromise that their services would be
retained regardless of the settlement
of the strike, with all the rights ap
pertaining to such employment, includ
ing that of seniority under the working
rules and regulations previouSly ap
proved by the Railroad Labor Board.
"Just the Opposite Effect"
"We especially point out that a re
fusal to the old men who remained in
the service and to the new men who
accepted service of the rights of senior
ity incident to their employment would
have just the opposite effect to that de
sired by the President, and would most
seriously discredit the Labor Board.
"The board itself prescribed the
rules of seniority under which the men
referred to have secured their senior
ity rights, and the railroad comlpanies
have neither 'the legal nor moral right
to deprive these men of those rights.
By public utterances since the strike
began the hoard has recognized and
emphasized these rights, and to deny
them now would, instead of upholding
*e authority of the Labor Board, over
throw its rules and discredit its au
"The Chairman of the Labor Board
at the time the strike was called made
the following public statemnent:
"Upon one question the striking em
ployees should not be deceived. Their
leader has said that the strikers
are no longer employees of the rail
ways. and they have thus automatic
ally abandloned all the rights they
possess under their agreements and
under the decisions of the board, in
cluding their seniority. This is not
the board's action. It is their own.
" Many carriers are giving their for
mer employees the opportunity to re
enter the service within a limited
time. It must be understood now
that men who remained in the serv
ice and those who are now entering
it 'will have rights of seniority that
the board could not ignore."
What the Proposed Plan Means
"It must be understood that any pro
posal that employees now on strike
shall be permitted to return to the
service, without impairment to their
seniority, is merely another way of
suggesting that those men who took
employment in this crisis in good faith,
relying on the promises of the rail
roads to protect them in their posi
tions, these promises being justified by
the authoritative utterances of the
Labor Board, and thus have made pos
sible the continued operation of the
railroads, shall now be sacrificed in
favor of men now on strike, who nol
only brought about the crisis, but, by
their own action and declaration, are
no longer employees of the railways.

Many persons, otherwise
vigorous and healthy, are
bothered occasionally with
indigestion. The effects of a
disordered stomach on the
system are dangerous, and
prompt treatment of indiges
tion is important. "The only
medicine I have needed has
been something to aid diges
tion and clean the liver,"
writes Mr. Fred Ashby, a
McKinney, Texas, farmer.
4My medicine is
for Indigestion and stomach
trouble of any kind. I have
never found anything that
touches the spot, like Black
Draught. I take it in broken
doses after meals. For a long
time I tried pills, which grip
ed and didn t give the good
results. Black-Draught liver
medicine is easy to take, easy
to keep, inexpensive."
