MOVIE MEN MEET
Get-Together Banquet Was
Fine Affair
One of the jclliest, good fellowship
affairs pulled off in Hamilton in re
cent years was the get-together ban
quet and talk-fest arranged by the
Hamilton and Middletown projection
ists and managers of the motion pic
ture industry, and held at Elks' club
on last Tuesday night. Besides the
projectionists (more commonly known
as operators) and managers, there
was present a number of guests well
known in the moving picture world.
Fred S. Meyer, managing director
nf the Palace theatre, acted as toast
master, and this is all that is really
nocessary to say to assure that the
affair was a big success. G. W. Betz,
of the local operators' union, delivered
the address of welcome—and Betz
knows how to do it. After his ad
dress everyone felt perfectly at home
and was set for a good time.
Addresses were made by H. A.
('ampe, president of the Society of
Motion Picture Engineers Prank
Uembusch, of Indianapolis John
Schwalm, df the Jewel Photoplay
Company (John made one of his fam
ous talks that always puts every one
in a good humor) W. W. Rowland,
nf the Cincinnati Associated Exchane-e i
Managers Will C. Smith, general
manager of the Nicholas Power Com
pany Gus Miles, president of Middle
town local No. 282 Tom Smith and
9
I-1. N. Richardson, editor of the pro
jection department, Moving Picture
World.
The affair was the first of the kind
in Hamilton, and much credit is due
those who were in charge for the ex
cellent manner in which it was con
ducted.
Those Present
Those present were: F. H. Richard
son, editor projection department,
Moving Picture World Will C. Smith,
general manager of Powers Co.
Projectionists—T. C. Smith, D. O.

Non-partisan organized labor urges
every lover of freedom and deocracy
to join with it on the political field
against exploitation by the few.
Partisanship is more than selfish it
is blind and ignorant—a conditions
that brings joy to privilege.
The organized workers made a free
ballot possible. They demanded the
secret ballot, urged independent vot
ing and resisted employers who
marched their unorganized employes
in political parades and "delivered''
them like chattels on election day.
The workers won their fight for the
secret ballot, and smashed the idol of
fanatic party worship. Through trade
unions they stopped political coercion
and intimidation by employers.
The organized workers have rewo
lotionized election practices in this
country and now other groups of citi
zens are successfully applying the
non-partisan policy.
Organized labor urges workers to
study the records of candidates, to
think, to cast their ballot in the inter
est of the men and women who do use
ful labor.
The sweep of non-partisanship
among workers terrifies reaction. A
worker who studies, who thinks, who
acts as his judgment dictates, can not
be handled.
Reaction cannot conceive of workers
who think. This kind of a worker has
.o place in reaction's scheme of things.
To privilege, a worker should be
-hysically free—except in strike times
—but he must always be an intellect
ual bondsman, an obedient menial who
permits "superiors" to do his thinking
The worker who studies, who thinks,
vho becomes acquainted with the re
ords of candidates, and who casts an
ndependent ballot, is beyond the crn
rol of recation. And in their helpless
rage these enemies of democracy
MACHINISTS
Held Big Meeting Wednes
Night
Machinists' Local Union No. 241
held a large and enthusiastic meeting
Wednesday night. The hall was
packed. Many matters of interest to
the local came up for discussion, and
there was some interesting debate.
The various shop committees report
ed everything in good shape. Quite
a number of applications were receiv
ed and several elected to membership.
It was reported that the strike at
the American Can Company is still
on, and that all machinists in the local
plant are out with the exception of
one and the machinists say they
would rather have him out of the
ranks than in. Strike benefits are be
ing paid all those that are out, wheth
er members of the union or not.

LABOR EDITORS
Held Big Meeting in Dayton
Last Sunday
The meeting of the Ohio Laboi
Press Association was called to ordf-r
promptly at 1 o'clock Sunday after
noon in the Gibbons hotel, Dayton.
Brother Anderson, a representative
of the Anti-Saloon League, was given
the floor and asked the editors to sup
port Bill 620 (Crabbe) upon referen
dum at coming election. Association
refused to take any action or make any
recommendations.
Member from Typographical local
at Zanesville made a plea for a
"square deal" to Attorney Marshall,
of Zanesville, and the following action
was taken:
There is no class of men who hear
more about a square deal in politics
and see less of its observance than la
bor editors. There is one candidate
(and we have no hesitancy in saying
that it is the most important office in
the gift of the people of Ohio) who
haS n0t received a
snarl: "Gompers is trying to deliver
the labor vote."
A thinking citizenry is dangerous
to reactionary rule.
But labor will not be denied.
America must be thoroughly Amer
icanized. The ideals of liberty, de
mocracy and freedom must become
facts.
The spirit of freedom cannot be de
stroyed by the wolf cries of reaction

it was unanimously decided that just

justice of the Supreme Court, in the
records of candidates placed before the
