The delaying of the op ;kout of the
miners, it was announc.., was due to
the desire on the part of the union
officials not to take hasty or arbitrary
action and to keep the men working at
such mines as do not actually put the
abolition of the "check off" system
into force. But where mines r. ft.

the men will walk out as soon as their
pay envelopes show the check off has
