Boston.- By a vote of 1,132 to 2,

President Lowell of Harvard, as
soon as news came to him that not a
policeman in Greater Boston was on
duty, called together the summer
school students and training athletes
who have arrived in anticipation of
the opening of the fall term, and
appealed to them to act as volunteer
policemen. Some 700 responded.
Also, clergymen have issued pleas
to their members to "serve in this
crisis," and banking and other big
business institutions have impressed
into service as police guards those of
their wage slaves who have seen
Meanwhile the "cops" are in con
sultation with the city firemen, cir
men, telephone operators, printing
unions, and building trades over the
possibility of calling all of these out
in a sympathy strike.
The Boston strike has been
brewing for some time. It arose
over the suspension of 19 policemen
who were known to be members of
the recently organized union. The
police commissioner had issued an
edict that policemen must not be
come affiliated with any outside or
ganization. Nevertheless. the "cops"
applied for and obtained a charter
in the A. F. of L.
When the commissioner announced
the suspension of the 19 officials and
members of the union, the organized
policemen next triea through the
Massachusetts State Federation of
Labor to persuade Governor Coolidge
to remove the colnmnissioner. When
this request was turned down, the
police finally called a meeting and
voted almost unanimously to strike.

Union Cards Save 450 Rent Strikers.
New York.---When City Marshal 1D.

members of the .Movers' union to
evict or eject 450 families of rent
strikers who occupy 17 five-story
apartment houses of the I. F. W.
Realty comlpany in lBrooklyn, six
women strikers confronted them and
asked the helpers if they were union
men. They were.
"So are we," said one of the wom
en, and each produced her union card
verifying the fact that she belonged
to the Williatnsburgh Tenants league.
The union men called a sympathet
ic strike right then and there with
the rent strikers and walked out,
leaving the amazed marshal alone
in a room on the top floor of 4451
Flushing avenue, where he had in
tended to start eviction operations.
The neighborhood has been spec

The tenants state that the owners

Tailors onI Strike.
New York.--Six thousand ladies'
tailors, emlployed in fashionable tail
oring establishments and department
stores went on strike Sept. 9. when
the employers refused to grant the
demands of the tailors for a 44-hour
week and increased pay. Abrahatm
Baroff, secretary of the International
Ladies' Garment Workers' union,
said that he did not believe the strike
would last long, as already a number
of the employers have signified their
willingness to sign the agreement.
The strike settlement committee,
Mr. Baroff said, would begin meet
ings within a few days for the pur
I pose of affecting settlements with the
employers. Besides the 44-hour week
the strikers ask for a minimum wage
of $50 a week to tailors. $40 to male
helpers, $35 to female helpers, and
$45 to alteration tailors.
