The Amer ican ttallrond Men's Association, a fraternal nnd benevolent association, embracing 10,000 yardtnasters, yard conductors and switchmen, to-day Is sued nn appeal to nil railroad unions to call off the proposed general strike and accept the wage cut ordered by the United States Hallroad Labo. Hoard. The union men wero warned that, If they strike, "arrayed against you there will be 100,000,000 men, women and children. The same railroad managements that now seem to decry public opinion would so mould nnu crystallze It against you as to over whelm you and would use In their defense that same power which should bo used against them." The stntement, an open letter to union men, wns signed by Fi-ank Mackut Jr., business manager of the order. "We know that the popular demand now appears to be for a strike against further wage reductions," the lettei said. "We also realize how dlsngree ablp Is the task of adv'.slng against so popular a measure. Nevertheless, wo derm it our duty so to advise, and In so doing we nre actuated solely for the good nnd bcnoflt of the railroad employees. A cessation of railroad work now would make more terrible existing conditions of employment, and In its trend would fo'low extreme poverty, want and suffering."

WAGES UP 119 OVER 1915, FREIGHT RATES ONLY 78 Figures Given Out by Railway Executives Show Wide DilTcrence. The Association of Railway Ex ecutlves yesterday made public n compilation prepared by the Bu reau of Railway Economics show ing tho relation of wage Increases to freight rates since 1915. This shows there have been four general increase! in freight rates since 1915, which averaged as fol lows: 3.7 per cent., Juno 27, 1917; 2 pe cent., March ID. 1918; 26 per cent, June 25, 1918, and 34 per cent, on Sept. 1, 1920 a total of 78 per cent, in 1921 over 1915. The average annual compensa tion of the railroad employee! In creased 7 per cent. In 1910, 13 per cent in 1917, l per cent. In ini 5 per cent, in 1919 und 22 per mil. In 1920. This ihows a total crease of 119 -er cent, in 1921 over 1915. The bureau says tho freight rate Increase Is only theoretical, while the age increase is actual. It nays that between 1915 and 1921 the uveragu annual compensation per employee increased from JS30 to 1,820. or 119 per cent., while the average receipts of the rail roads per ton mile Increased only from ,722 cents In 1915 to 1.052 cents In 1920, or only 46 per cent. VERY SHARP TEETH LIKELY TO BE PUT L (Continued From First Page.) when tho Nation's food supply and transportation of commodities weio seriously held up by n country-wide strlko on tho railroads? Tho Impression prevails that If President Harding nsked that teeth do put ih the Esch-Cummlns law so that the decisions of the Railroad Labor Board would, be respected, thcro would bo no difficulty In rush- lug such a measure through Congress. A big question Is whether the railroad labor unlonn will force tho Admlnls- passago of any measuro deemed necessary Ly the Administration. Incidentally, tho original nnti-, strlko clause Imposed heavy penalties rri,.r- .mil thnlr executives for entering into combinations between . themselves to produce lockouts or spreaa oi a icet ana carries uu gai- strike.

Similarly thcro are combinations of Individuals In management who use coercive measures to compel men In associated lines of business to pursue courses of action which provoke strikes.

PLANE CONSTRUCTED OF AMERICAN-MADE DURALIUM. Tho pinna Itself Is constructed of American-made Uuralium, an alloy of aluminum with the strength of mild steel. Th- metal sheets are 25-1,000 of an Inch thick, more than twice the thickness of that used In the latest foreign all-metal planes. It Is braced thr ughout with steel, there being a powerful criss-crossing of rods in tho wings, which uro two feet thick at their greatest diameter. In designing this plane, it was Mr. Larson's Idea to provide a flying ma chlno which, through its high speed. Its sensitiveness under control and Its I ability to climb rapidly, could be ' used successfully against, Infantry either on the field of battle or while "going up," or to the rear, or to at tack a convoy on a roadway. Tho In tent of the plane Is to swoop down upon the enemy, fly low over him, perhaps at not more than fifty feet from tho ground, and loose an anni hilating fire from machlno guns. Aftor such a dash, the machine Is to climb hwlftly to give tho gunner time to adjust new magazines to the guns and then to return to the attack SPRAYS GROUND WITH BULLETS FOR WIDC DISTANCE.

The circular drums for the Thomp son guns contain 100 cartridges and the ammunition equipment for tne plane in battle trim consists of three drums for each of the thirty guns, a total of 9,000 cartridges. Of the flight and the capabilities of his attack plane, Mr. Larsen wrd to-day just before tho machine took the air for the 200-mlle Journey to Washington: "Wo shall travel at cruising speed, about 120 miles an hour, and our path lies over Philadelphia, Baltimore, Aberdeen, Md., and Washington. We 3hall go to Boiling Field and also to Langley Field, where the army and navy experts will make their Inspec tion of tho plane and see what It can do In the air. It has been put through the most severe tests already and tho flying and the battery' per formance have been perfect. "Ono marked feajure of the plane is Its climbing ability. During a re cent test It climbed the first 1,000 feet in 4G seconds and rose to 10,000 feet in less than 12 minutes. It Is as fust as n scout plane and has high quail ties of manoeuvring at speed. "Nothing has been overlooked to make it .in irresistible weapon of war. Infantry, either in the open or intrenched, cannot possibly withstand Its sheer velocity of flight and its appalling fire. U flies too fast to afford a target. It sets a pace which is strides nhcad of anything like It In the world, and the best part of It materlal and workmanship through all Is that this plane is or American 0l,t." NARROW ESCAPE OF TWO SENATORS Chandelier in the President's Room Drops, Pulling Plaster and Glass Onto Them. WASHINGTON, Oct. 20.
