MORE PAY AND LONGER
BOY LABOR AT THE EAGLE
Last Tuesday' afternoon about 28
men employed in the New Ulm Brick
& Tile Yards laid down their tools and
Lost Perc. made a demand for a raise in «wages.
22 666 Mr. Aufderheide told them that he
24 651' wanted 24 hours within which to give
29 560 their demands due consideration and
.32 515 suggested to them that they go back
33 500 to work at the old scale until the matter
41 394 had been settled and disposed of but this
41 378 the men were not willing to do. They
45 3481 returned, however, the next morning
and renewed their demands for higher
wages. They were told to resume
work and that by Saturday evening the
firm wovld be able to tell them what the
567' new- scale would be.
456 Want Longer Day
390 Up to the time they struck for higher
435 wages, that class of workers received
523'pay at the rate of twenty-two cents
18 per hour for a nine hour day and their
I demand was for twenty-five cents an
hour and they expressed a desire to
work 10 hours so that their daily wage
would be $2.50.
Wednesday morning it looked as tho
there might be trouble and the police
was notified but their help was not
required, as there was no disturbance.
Wednesday afternoon, four placards
were put up on the lamp posts in the
city at the following corr.es: Brown
County Bank, Fair Store, Farmers and
Merchants State Bank and Mrs.
B. Follman's Millinery Store. These
placards bore the following inscription:

John Hirschbeck who was caught
doing this work was taken into custody
by the police and lodged in jail but was
later released and no further attempts
452 have been made to prefer charges against
433 him. Four of the strikers returned to
492 work Thursday and by Monday all of
602 the strikers were back at work except
69 such as the Aufderheide's did not care
The employers granted the wages
asked for, a raise from twenty-two cents
to twenty-five cents an hour. At present
493 they are working nine hours a day but
421 it "is expected that in a week or two
475 there will be enuf work «o that they can
425 be employed 10 hours a day.
93 The Aufderheides say that they were
not forced to close down their plant at
2428 all but were able to keep the work going
jjn all the branches as tho nothing had
482! happeneJ. They also state that they
390 had been contemplating making this
373' increase in wages before any demand
386, was made upon them and that the only
394 thing they did not like about if was
282 the fact that no request was made for
a raise before the men walked Out.

Mennonites Ask for Information
Bishop Aaron Loucks, Scottdale, Pa.,
of the Mennonite church, and S. C.

the church, were in conference with

Homing Pigeons Are Here
The first installment of homing or
carrier pigeons are here. These birds
will be put into training at once. It
takes genius to do this work. A pigeon
squad as a part of the signal corps has
been organized under the command of

been appointed sergeant first class
and transferred to the Pigeon Detach
ment, of which he will have charge.
The men of the detachment have been
chosen because of their familiarity
with pigeons and ability to train them
to do their work.
Home Food For Soldiers Not Needed
The desire to furnish the men at
Camp Dod£,e with some home cooking
is natural but tre officers are doing all
they can to discourage the practice.
The quartermaster's department asks
that we again give publicity to the fol
lowing. "The Council of National De
fense desires to inform the people of
the country that abundant food is sup
plied to the soldiers and sailors irj, the
camps and cantonments, and that the
sending of food to the:e men by their
friends and families is not in any re
spect necessary that the aggregate
quantity of food thus privately sent is
enormous, and that much of it having
been conveyed long distances in heat
ed mail or express cars is more or less
spoiled, and consequently injurious to
the health of the men. The. efore, in
the interest of the conservation of food
and also the health of the men, the
Council of National Defense requests
the public to discontinue the sending
of foodstuffs to the camps."
Another Draft April First
It is announced semi-officially from
Washington that the next draft will
come within a few weeks, probably the
first of next month. General Biddle,
acting chief of staff of the United
States Army, is quoted as saying that
Camp Dodge would be filled to its
maximum capacity of 45,000 men as
soon as the second draft was author
ized, but whether it is to be enlarged
will depend upon the rapidity of the
troop movements to France. General
Biddle said that no more troops were
to be shifted from Camp Dodge to the
south and that all troops now there will
remain until they go to France. The
troops now training at Camp Dodge
will be moved to France as soon as
sufficiently trained and as soon as the
ships can be provided. It is probable
imany of the troops now there will go
I to France this spring. To the extent
they go to France, room will be left for
Men Are Known By Number
Each soldier has been given a num
ber and on March 1st the men who
have been in training since last fall
were paid ,off by number rather than
by name. The plan is very simple.
The number of each man will be
stamped on two disks, both of which
are worn by the soldier. One disk is
'fastened to a cord which is suspended
'around the neck of the soldier and
'worn next to the skin under the shirt.
The other disk is suspended below the
.fist on the s£me cord. The purpose of
the two disks is that one may be re
moved and brought in from the field
to the'/personnel office for the puToje
of expediting $« .identification of^the
