"Business Agent Riordan could
have had money shoved in his hands
to call off this strike," said Emmett
Flood, American Federation of Labor
organizer, to 25 workers of Graham
& Daniels' dye house. They went on
strike today for recognition of the
union and time-and-a-half for over
time. ' After a speech by Riordan to the
strikers in a hall at Colorado and
Tripp streets Flood told how Max
Malter, sec'y Tailors, Dyers and
Cleaners' ass'n, paid checks totaling
$100 to Riordan. He added:
, "Don't-believe what you rja4 ia
newspapers about organized labor.
Half of it is true. Half of it is lies.
"If you're going to believe any
thing, you don't know whether you're
believing the truth or a lie.
"The Day Book printed a state

money was handed a labor official by
an employer. Did the newspapers
send their reporters around to see
what the dirty money looked like?
Did they seem anxious to show up an
employer who tried to corrupt an
officer of a labor union? Well, not
so anybody could notice it"
