UNIONS PLAN A WAR AGAINST
JUDGES' INJUNCTIONS
Union organizations of the state
are uniting to wage a war on the
business of judges granting injunc
tions that deprive labor strikers of
well-nigh the right of existence.
Such injunctions as those issued

musical workers forbade the strikers
from ever walking by the factories. J.
Of these injunctions, Pres. Sam'l

"It is all for one purpose that is
to endeavor to clothe tyranny and
injustice of employers in the form of
law to break the spirit of protest, to
prevent the workers from organiz
ing, to prevent the workers from con
stitutional right of ownership of
themselves and to try to tie them to
their tasks."
