asked to put any money in the venture,
the only assistance to be sought being
right of way.
Bring In Outside Barbers. The
fight over Sunday closing of barber
shops in Moline took on renewed ac
tivity yesterday morning when Gus
Peacock, anti-closing advocate, opened
his shop brii;ht and early with a full
force of razor knights on hand. Since
the local barbers' union issued its ulti
matum the Peacock shop had been
running with only a partial force. Yes
terday, however, tho Peacock force
consisted of the shop boss himself and
six assistants. According to Peacock
the men are "artists every one" and
just dropped in from all over the coun
try. They are not union members, of
course. Four are newcomers, and the
other two are men who were with Pea
cock before the trouble began and have
remained loyal to him. Peacock says
that within a few days Moline will be
overrun with barbers from all points
of the compass who are being drawn
here, according to the local insurgent,
by the notoriety that has been given
by local newspapers to the Sunday
closing fight. "These men will stick,
because I am going to give them a
guarantee of $14 a week and 70 per
cent ovor $21," said Peacock. "We are
