prophets 'out of a job have been
busy naming his cabinet. The
fact that the president-elect was
not consulted did notbother the
The latest pick was made this
morning, and every place was fill
ed by a space writer on a New
York paper. How much real in
formation the writer had is in
dicated by the following opinions
of persons close to Gov. Wilson:
National Chairman William F.
McCombs doesn't know, who's
going to be in the cabinet.
Vice Chairman William G. Mc

man weighs twenty pounds.
WAITERS RETURN UNTIL
New York, Jan. 27. Most of
the striking hotel and restaurant
workers are expected to return
to work tonight. The verbal
agreements under which they go
back are called "defeat" by the
hotel owners and '"a half-way
victory" by the union officers.
Moderate demands which have
been drafted by the strikers will
be granted by some of the hotels.
The waiters have been advised
by their officers to go back to
work at those places where no
concessions have been offered.
"Get ready for another and more
united struggle." was the word
passed to them.
"The strike has been success
ful." said Elizabeth Gurley
Flvnn. the I. W. W. organizer.
"Another strike will be called as
soon as an organization has been
effected. Every waiter will re
spond to the call. Not all who
have been striking can get back
to their old jobs. Rut waiters are
accustomed to frequent changes
in places of emplovment."
Several thousand striking wait
ers, forming flying wedges, went
through the Broadway and Fifth
avenue hotel sections Saturday
night, breaking windows. Three
strikers were arrested charged
with throwing bricks. Police re
serves scattered the strikers, who
reformed farther down the street.
During times of peace France
has an army of 601.000 men. but
in 'times of war this can be in
creased to 4,000,000.
