Salt Lake City, Utah. June 26.
Restaurant employers h:lve refused
to recognize the union of cooks anitd
waiters, although this has been the
policy for years. The employers are
attempting to camnouflage their op
position to organized labor by pleas
for the "open shop." Trade union
ists are aiding the cooks and wait
ers to establish normal conditions.
Houston. Tex., June 26.-Over
300 organized culinary workers are
on strike to raise wages, improve
conditions and secure recognition of
their union. Many unorganized have
joined this movement.

things too often overlooked by the

is that in this great game of chance

inconsistent with democratic ideals

is that it, creates hostility on the part
