JITNEY BUS DRIVERS
Editor Day Book In the issue of
The Day Book of Feb. 1 I notice an
article- quoting Mr. Mahon of the
Street Car Men's Union, stating that
their organization was going to or
ganize the chauffeurs of jitney buses
under the charter of the Auto Livery
Chauffers' Union No. 727, issued by
the International Brotherhood of
Teamsters, Chauffeurs, Stablemen
and Helpers of America. We have
full jurisdiction over all chauffeurs
driving passenger-carrying automo
biles in Chicago and vicinity. If the
city adopts the jitney bus, which I
think ought to be done, and the soon
er the better, the operators of such
buses will become members of the
Auto Livery Chauffeurs' Union No.
727, under the laws of the American
Federation of Labor. T. F. Neary,
LAWYER SCORES ROCKEFELLER
New York, Feb. 3. Continuing his
defense of the Rockefeller Founda

on industrial relations, Jerome D. '
Greene, its secretary, today insisted
it could not be charged with paternal-,
"Nothing could be farther from the
thought of the directors," he de-r
clared. "It is always for the general
good and not designed to affect the
individual, excepting as the individual
is a part of the one general plan. ,
"The foundation puts into effect'
the principle of self-help. It insists
on those institutions which benefit
through its distributions producing j
results that will equal the amounts
Edward P. Costigan, attorney for,t
United Mine Workers of Aferica, de-l
clared that Rockefeller, who appears"
to the world in the relief afforded
Belgium as a liberal benefactor,
stands convicted before the workers
of Colorado as a narrowly biased and
Costigan declared that Rockefel
ler's testimony before the congres
sional committee in April, 1914,
showed he and his associates "favor
ed law breaking and law breakers."
He asked the commission to hear
the stories of Mrs. Mary Petrucci,
three of whose children were smoth
ered in the Ludlow massacre, and
Mrs. Margaret Dominniski, whose
husband was killed there. Whether
they will be called will be decided
later by Chairman .Walsh,
