WITH I. H. E. W.
(Seattle Correspondent of Elec
trical Workers' Journal)
The past month has been one of
great activity for L. U. No. 77, in
asmuch as International President
McNulty has been with us working
in conjunction with the Executive
Hoard negotiating an agreement with
the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul
Railroad for the electrification work
to be done on their main lines and
sidings from Othello to Tacoma and
President McNulty called the Mil
waukee office from the Labor Tem
ple and made an appointment for the
Conference Hoard to meet with Mr.
Goodnow, assistant to the President,
and his engineers, on Tuesday, April
24th, at 10 A. M.
At the appointed time the Con

Board brought back to the local
unions interested for their acceptance
Special meetings were called as
per the constitution and the mem
bership voted to accept the pro
posed agreement by a vote of 102 to

helpers, $3.00 per day. After July

journeymen, $4.75 per day.
The foregoing are the most prom
inent features of the agreement
While this agreement does not
provide for all of the conditions that
we as skilled electrical workers are
entitled to nevertheless the vote of
the locals interested demonstrated
its complete satisfaction.
This agreement was negotiated and
adopted as per our constitution the
membership directly interested cast
ing a secret ballot for or against the
This job will be the first large
construction job that will be done
under absolute closed shop condi
tions in the Pacific Northwest and
the wage is the highest ever paid
for cold construction in this part of
We feel sure that had not our
members made such a good record
in the class of work they performed
on the Montana job that the work
the above agreement covers would
have been let to a contracting firm
and the chances are that said firm
would have been unfair to our
During the conference Mr. Good
now and Mr. Buchas, his chief elec
trical engineer, repeatedly stated
that they were greatly pleased with
the class of work done by our
members on the Montana job.
It is generally accepted in this
part of the country that the other
transcontinental roads will also elec
trify their main lines so far as it is
possible and practicable for them to
procure the necessary electrical

After the construction period is

The Milwaukee has already signed
an agreement for this work in the
electrified zone in Montana and we
rUP LABOR JOURNAL
are thus assured of this work on
the Pugct Sound lines after the
construction work is finished.
L. U. 77 feels sure that all the
locals Interested will see that the
agreement is curried out both in
letter and spirit during its full legal
Along with the report of the Mil
waukee job we can at this time say
j that things are framing very favor

' being paid our members who are

All in all the prophecy is that
this part of the country will have
lots of work after the fore part of
the summer. There are quite a
few of the members working at odd
jobs at this time waiting for the
Milwaukee to start its work.
International President McNulty
left here to proceed to San Francisco
to negotiate the agreement for the
Pacific Tel. & Tel. Co. We hope
that he obtains as good results for
the telephone men us he has for
the light and power men on this new
agreement just signed.
I guess this is all the news from
these parts at present.

(By the Rev. Charles Stelzle)
From the man who takes himself
too seriously, and from him who
thinks that other people do—deliver
us. The first must be a burden to
himself, while the latter is a bore
to others. You have met both types
—The man with a "mission," and
he who imagines that the world is
determined that he shall not carry
it out. Both are usually narrow,
Your average reformer can see
only one thing. Everything else
to him is painfully distorted and in
adequate. He cannot believe that
there is another view-point, and that
each new vision presents a new out
look. He is an individualist of the
rankest kind. It is absolutely im
possible to get him "lined up" with
the rest of us, who, in the nature
of things, must have had other ex
periences which give us other ideas.
These ideas may not be as good as
his, but they have come to us as a
part of our mental equipment. And
because they form so large a part
of a real, vital human experience,
they must, of necessity, be a factor
in determining how all the needs of
men are to be met. If all men were
run through molds—made from the
same pattern and of the same ma
terial—then the problem would be
simple. Or, if human nature could
be eliminated, then the solution
might come easier to hand.
But if every man is a problem by
himself and requires individual treat
ment. You cannot handle men in
the mass. God never intended that
this should be so. What might suf
fice for the man of sluggish tem
perament, who is never disturbed by
a single new idea, will not answer
for that throbbing human engine,
who, with red blood in his veins, is
fired with a rush of thought that
arouses the deepest passions.
It isn't that we object to the man
who has a mission. We need him.
But sometimes a sense of humor
would save him and us from serious
embarrassment. As for the poor fel
low who thinks that everybody is
set against him on account of jeal
ousy or ignorance—he is to be pitied.
He is his own worst enemy. People
do not think about him nearly as
much as his self-consciousness leads
him to suppose. Neither do they
oppose him quite as much as he
Most of us boys had an acquaint
ance with rabbits only as pets to
be fondled while alive and mourned
for when they died, i That there
may be a change in the attitude of
the rising generation is indicated by
the following incident:
A banker, motoring in the wilds
of Jersey, met a small boy on the
road and stopped to ask directions.
Observing that the boy had four
"bunnies" in a sort of a cage, he
inquired, "Do you like rabbits?"
"Yes," was the reply, "love them.
They beat chickens fifty ways."
Failing to see the connection the
motorist asked "How?"
"Well, you see," was the unex
pected reply, "raibts multiply at a
terrible rate; they don't need much
care; its lots of fun watching them;
they make a fine stew, and fur is
worth a lot more than feathers.
Father says we must all do our bit
in helping the food supply, and I
am going to do mine with rabbits."
(Continued from page one)
tion along the lines suggested by the
In England us early as 1916 some
employers returned to regular labor
standards. The British Chief In
spector of Factories and Workshops
writes In May, 191 li.
The tendency grew as the year
passed to substitute a system of
shifts for the long day followed
by overtime, and this is particular
ly reported of munition factories in
the Midlands and in Sheffield • * *
The number of days on which over
time was actually worked tended
in many factories to decrease as
experience grew of accumlating fa
tigue and lessened output. Probably
for similar reasons Sunday labor also
has tended latterly to decrease.
The reports of the British official
Committee on the Health of Muni
tion Workers on the waste involved
in the long hours dining the war
are well known. They urge the re
storing of restrictions and are full
of such statements as the follow
Even during the urgent claim of
a war the problem must always be
to obtain the maximum output from
the individual worker which is com
patible with the maintenance of his
health. In war time the workmen
will be willing, as they are show
ing in so many directions, to fore
go comfort and to work nearer to
the margin of acumulating fatigue
than in times of peace, but the
country cannot afford the extrav
agance of paying for work done dur
ing incapacity from fatigue just
because so many hours are spent
upon it, or the further extrava
gance of urging armies of workers
towards relative incapacity by ne
glect of physiological law.
Conditions of work are accepted
without question and without com
plaint which, immediately detrimen
tal to output, would if continued be
ultimately disastrous to health. It
is for the nation to safeguard the
devotion of its workers by its fore
sight and watchfulness less irrepar
able harm be done to body and
mind both in this generation and
Very young girls show immediate
symptoms of lassitude, exhaustion,
and impaired vitality under the in
fluence of employment at night. A
very similar impression was made
by the appearance of large numbers
of young boys who had been work
ing at munitions for a long time
on alternate night and day shifts.
In England the war exemptions
to the factory laws have not includ
ed a lowering of the age limits for
factory work. And the exemptions
to the school attendance laws per
mitted for agriculture and "light
employment" are now bitterly re
gretted by the general education au
thority which has sanctioned them.
A fuller memorandum on child
labor in warring countries will be
supplied by the Children's Bureau,
Washington, D. C, upon request.
