ambition, I am going to keep on
Success means to me tne accom
plishment of dn ambition, a place in
the hall of fame thatis really worth
while. Notwithstanding the fact
that numbers of successful persons
say that the home life and success do
not go together, my home life has
been a decided factor in my success,
and to be deprived of home influences
and comforts would do more to make
me fearful of the future than any
thing else I can imagine.
I attribute my present success,
first, to the influence of my home life,
and, second, to my unconquerable
desire to attain advancement through
my own achievement, due to home
BUILDING TRADES REBELS
Rebels against O'Donnell and other
building trades heads say that a ma
chine has been built up and kickers
against the "model agreement" can
be"punished. When work opens up
it's the kickers who are last to get
jobs, it is said. When there are lay
offs, it's kickers who are first to. go.
In the painters' union there has
been more freedom to agltafe than
in most of the other building trades.
It is the painters, hoisting engineers
and sheet metal workers who have
been most active in circulating a
leaflet called "Union Wreckers,"
printed under the direction of Tom
Walsh, business agent of the sheet
metal workers. This leaflet says:
"The building trades council is
controlled by a few men who have
made fortunes in selling out the
workers. A certain group of men
amass vast fortunes through selling
out the army of men who work at
fflfeT)uilding trades; and, in selling
ofithe men, sell out the comfort,
Hagpiness and health of their wives
.RWDoht place your futurfe in the
hands of contractors who speni timf
and money to extend your hours and
reduce your wages. Orders are now
out by the building contractors' as
sociation to the associated contrac
tors to lock out the unions that re
fuse to sign. Will you stand for it?
Or will you help us fight this last
effort to wipe out organized labor?
"Hold all that your union has given,
you. Don't become a scab. Don't
become a union wrecker. Don't be
come a strikebreaker.
"Go into your union and help de
feat this agreement. You may find
evidences of the employers' money
there before but fight, fight, fight."
A Day Book reporter compared the
agreement printed in the "Unions
Wreckers" leaflet with a bona-fide
copy of the agreement as sent out by
the johft conference board, The re
print in the leaflet is the same word
for word as that which is sent out by
the joint conference board.
WATCHFUL WAITING FOR U. S. IN.
Washington,. Feb. 19. "Watchful
waiting" was this government's
policy toward its international prob
lems, particularly toward Germany's
"death zone" decree. rWe want to
wait a little to see how that plan de
velops," said one official.
The administration today did not
regard the relations betwen the
United States and Germany an omi
nous as previously. Yet some offi
cials admitted that there is still much
gravity to the situation.
Germany's profession of friendship
led the authorities to believe that that
nation will exercise every percaution
not to sink American merchantmen.
Still they admitted that with British
ships flying the stars and stripes
some vessels may easily be mistaken.
