CLAY WORKERS' STRIKE
Uhrichsville, Ohio, Oct. 9th.
About the first of the year a clay workers
union was organized in this town. Sometime in
April the Clay Manufactors Association decided
that the Union was becoming too strong. The re
sult was that five men were discharged at the
Evans plant. A committee was appointed tto meet
the Company but they refused to meet' the com
mittee or make an adjustment in any way. A
meeting was then called and a strike vote was
taken and the vote was unanimous in favor of a
strike. This week is the twenty-third the boys
have been on strike but they will stay out twenty
three more if necessary. The company is importing
scabs but are only getting about one-fifth of their
Many of the men imported have been told by

THE BETTER CLASS
The "better classes" are made up of all
kinds of people. Bankers, lawyers, merchants,
college men, and all people "worth while" are
there. The latest recruits are the American
Of coui'se, the legionaires are only there when
the "better classes" have certain work to do.
"When scabs and strikebreakers are1 needed,
when men are wanted to protect strikebreakers,
all the "better classes", and the legionaires and
thugs and gunmen join the police, militia jvnd
federal troops in shooting "respect" into the
bodies of the strikers.
In times of trouble, the "bettor classes" and
all people "authorized" to carry arms, stick
together against the working class.
