KNAB ADMITS GIRLS WORKED 7
DAYS BEFORE HE UNIONIZED
The secretary of the Lake Zurich
Dairy Co., Mark H. Fox of the Serge
Pox Co., G. W. Learn of the Garden
City Dairy, John J. Murphy of Mur
phy & Co., Milton" -L Livingston of
the Livingston Bakery Co., Fred
Boysen of the Boysen Baking Co.,
Alfred N. Somner of the Vienna
Model Bakery, and Frank A. Moody
of the Moody & Waters Co. testified
yesterday on behalf of George Knab
and Powers & Efting in regard to
transactions occurring during the
strike of the waitresses at Knab's
chain of restaurants and of the bak
ers at Powers & Bfting's.
George Knab, testifying in his own
behalf in the case of the Waitresses'
union to have the injunctions grant
ed Knab and Powers & Efting set
aside, admitted that prior to signing
an agreement with the union he had
worked waitresses a whole day every
other Sunday or a half day each Sun
day. One of the demands of the
striking waitresses was for one day's
rest in seven.
Although Knab has constantly de
clared that his only reason for not
renewing his contract with the union
was that they did not supply him suf
ficient waitresses, he admitted that
he still refused to sign in face of their
promise that he should have as many
girls as he could use
That he did not intend to renew his
contract a month after he had signed
the first was shown in his testimony
that he had been one of the organ
izers of the Chicago Food Exchange
association, which he said had been
formed so they could have some pro
tection in case the question of his re
newing the contract should cameup.
He admitted that the hiring' of
waitresses was left entirely to his
managers and his only knowledge of
the inability of the union to furnish
him with all the waitresses he need
ed was what his managers had told
him.
He stated he had applied for police
protection at his restaurant because
some of his patrons had been re
quested not to eat there, but admitted
that the arrests did not begin until
he placed pickets on the street with
toy nanhygoats and balloons and put
in his windows large signs which at- fj

The case was continued until
Tuesday morning.

SCHOOL BOARD NEEDS MILLION
"Wanted A million dollars. Ap
ply to Mrs. E. F. Young, Sup't of
Schools." We may expect this any
day now, for the school board needs
just a million more to run the schools
next year. ,
The board finance committee
worked over the budget until it stood
a million over the expected revenue
and then, unable to reduce, passed
the job to making the 12-mflllon in
come fit a 13-million budget to Mrs.
Young.
Now Mrs. Young is stumped. She
has suggested that each of the teach
ers give up two weeks' salary, but
this would not make up the deficit.
She says she is "going home and pray
to the Lord to send us money."
