JACOBSON FAILS TO COME
THROUGH WITH PROOF
Att'ys Darrow and Sissman, rep
resenting -250 garment strikers who
may be cited for contempt of court
for picketing, appeared before Judge
Baldwin this morning. Louis Jacob
son for the garment manufacturers,
had claimed garment workers' pay
ranged from 59.75 to $37.50. Dar
row, at that time, said the strike
would be called off if that fact were
proven.
So they all dropped into court to
day to hear the proof. But Jacobson
said he was in a trap. I didn't figure '
that the labor was split," he said, j
"Some are paid for piecework and
some on time." That was as far as
his proof went The case was con
tinued to Monday. Clarence Darrow
claimed that Ben"Schlessing has not
been uringing strikers to picket.

SAYS PRIMARY CANT COMPETE
WITH EUROPEAN WAR
"A primary election cannot com
pete with a European war," was the
comment of F. B. Johnstone, presi
dent Municipal Voters' league.
"There have been so many events
of world-wide importance the last
few weeks that it is small wonder
the voters gave scant attention to
their duty at the polls.
"One important factor was the
stealthy use of the so-called religious
issue. It is never resorted to by those
holding sincere beliefs, but is used to
hoodwink the voter and divert his
attention' from the real character of
the candidates and issues. A contin
uance of the practice is bound to be
disastrous to the community.
"The defeat of the vigorous, hard
hitting and fearless Buck is a great
loss. While one at times may differ
from him on questions of policy, no
one can deny him the merit of hav
ing the courage of his convictions
and of fighting sturdily in the open
to uphold them."
