EAGLES
To Celebrate Fourth
Annual Outing at
Grounds Monday
Grand Scale.
Butler Aerie No. 407, Fraternal
Order Eagles, will hold its annual
outing and Fourth of July celebration
again at the Butler county fair
grounds next Monday. The Eagles'
annual affair has come to be recog
nized as the community's celebration
of the glorious day by all Hamilton
and vicinity. And this because the
Eagles leave nothing undone, nor do
they pass up anything that would add
to a program appropriate to the day.
Fourth of July is a day when most
people want to be entertained and
amused in a whoopee manner. Dry
long-winded speeches are no longer
the thing for Independence Day joy
seekers. Speeches at the Egales' cele
bration are taboo. The committee in
charge of the big outing and celebra
tion to be held Monday has arranged
a program of entertainment that is
all one could look for or expect. It
includes dancing and band concerts
both afternoon and evening, korno,
rides, games and contests of all kinds,
a big midway with its attendant
shows, games, devices, etc.
Two big special features have been
provided for the afternoon. One is the
horseshoe pitching elimination co
test under the auspices of the Hamil
ton Horseshoe Club and the girls'
soft ball game between the Roemers
team of Hamilton and Crystal Tissue
team of Middletown.
The celebration will close with one
of those grand fireworks displays for
which the Eagles' annual affair has
become famous far and near. In keep
ing with the George Washington Bi
centennial celebration being carried
on this year, the display will show
several big features such as a large
picture of Washington in all the col
ors of the rainbow accompanied by
the firing of beautiful shells and a
salute of 21 guns to the American
flag and George Washington, and
there will also be pictured a sea-fight
between two battleship accompanied
by a bombardment that, the fire
works people say, will rattle the hills.
The display will be worth going miles
to see.
Lunch and refreshments will be
procurable on the grounds throughout
the entire day. The Eagles invite
everyone to be present Monday as
their guest. They guarantee that all
thought of depression and gloom will
be scattered by those who come out.
So fill the basket and spend the day
at the fairgrounds Monday and forget
all troubles for one day, at least.
LABOR WARNED
Against Rosencranz's Activ
ities—Former Ad
Manager
Chicago (ILNS)—In a letter from
Secretary E. N. Nockels, the Chicago
Federation of Labor warns the labor
movement against the activities of
A. M, Rosencranz, former advertis
ing manager of the Federation News.
The letter says:
"Since Rosencranz's discharge, h-3
has started a racket of soliciting ad
vertising on a so-called 'Friend of
Labor' calendar on the strength of his
having been employed on the Federa
tion News. He goes to communities
and to city central bodies and tries
to get them to sponsor this racketeer
advertising proposition by listing the
time and place of labor meetings.
"Rosencranz was about to start on
this racket in Rockford, 111., when the
editor of the labor paper in that city
telephoned to our headquarters in
Chicago^ Iwith the /result tjhat the
chief of police of Rockford detained
him and took away his so-called cre
dentials and made him leave town.
"Therefore, we are conveying this
information to all state and city cen
tral bodies, as well as the labor press,
to be on guard for this man, Rosen
cranz, in the event that he tries his
racket in other cities, and if he should
appear in your city, may we request
that you wire us collect, advising us
of his whereabouts."
Washington Labor Asks
Picket Right Renewal
Washington, D. C. (ILNS)—Pick
eting has been entirely outlawed in
the District of Columbia and the
C. L. U. is making a valiant effort
to restore labor's vanished right. The
district commissioners, in an anti-bill
board measure aimed at sandwich men
made it unlawful pickets to carry
placards, the only right that remained
to them. It has been stated that the
commissioners did not intend to hit
picketing, but now that restoration of
the right is being considered business
is up in arms to prevent repeal of
the obnoxious provision. Labor pre
dicts victory.
DAVE EVANS ON TRIAL

*"pHE woman stood at the edge
the wood, in the dying light of day,
her head lifted watching the blue bulk
of the mountain, and the glided orange
that arose from behind it. Her figure
was slim, and she might have been
a high priestess at her devotions so
still was she. With a sigh, her gaze
dropped to the gloomy cavern of the
woods, and she peered, expectant,
down the path which stretched way
Into the blackness where the pine
trunks snuggled closely together for
companionship.
"Tims late!" she said aloud. "He's
been late a lot lately." A shadow
seemed to fall on her heart a sud
den weight as she thought that per
haps he wag already growing tired of
these nightly trysts.
"He hates mother he won't come to
the house, and his mother hates me.
It's all so Impossible and absurd. Tim
and I are both the victims of our par
ents."
Her thoughts roved over the seem
ing impasse. But her common sense
revealed the solution if only Tim
would see It.
"His father and mother have each
other. He's not really needed at
home not the way I am."
She sighed. "I guess it's just because
I've given him too much!" bitterly.
"Men are that way when women are
fools like me I"
"Oh, why can't he see things right?"
•he said aloud. "And why does he
never consider me and my wishes?"
Her thoughts swept back to their
last discussion of the problem. Their
words were recorded on her memory.
"I can't marry you and your mother,
too! Your first duty should be to
yourself and to me. You owe every
thing to me ... to the man you
say you love. We should come first
our happiness together."
"But you don't understand, Tim I
Mother's sick and all alone but for
me. She's helpless with that arthritis.
I have to help her. She can't even
dress herself alone. It would be in
human to leave her. Oh, If only you
would ."
"Let's not talk about It any morel"
In his careless way he shunted the
subject and pulled her into demand
ing arms.
"I'll never come there to live with
her, Carrie," as she still hung back.
"So we'll have to make the best of
things till you get ready to come to
me Love me?" changing the
•ubject abruptly. "Going to be nice
to me?"
She capitulated. The evening end
ed as the many others had.
After another interval of waiting
and of thinking, she saw a spark of
light coming down the dark path, a
tiny glow. Footsteps approaching. The
cigarette was tossed carelessly aside.
"Tim!" she cried, throwing herself
Into his arms. "I thought you were
never coming. I'm afraid in these
dark woods!''
He laughed carelessly, drawing her
up to him with a caressing arm.
"Sorry, Carrie. You see, we were
playing pool down at Tonl's and I lost
track of time." His careless words
struok her like a blow in the face.
"Lost track of time," she mentally re
peated. "How little he cares about
seeing me!"
Har silence seemed to vex him. He
pulled her down beside him on the
pine needles, and looked at her re
proachfully.
"Here I come a mile to see you and
all you do is sulk!" Then he ex
pressed penitence again, and the ten
sion was eased. She yielded herself
to his love making with sweet ardor.
"I love you, Tim!" she whispered,
her hand against his smooth cheek.
"Oh, I love you so! If anything were
to part us, I should die. I want to be
married, Tim, and have things right
I want to be your wife, and maybe
have children ."
His kisses were hard and demand
ing on her lips. He drew her closer
to him, and caressed her more passion
ately.
"Well, then if you love me, prove it!
You know I'm ready when you say
the word. I'm not stuck on this bach
elor love making myself. I'm ready
when you are."
"But mother ."
"There you are!" savagely. "Back at
the same old stand. She's always in
your thoughts. I'm sick and tired of
hearing "mother, mother! all the
time."
He pulled her to her feet.
*T11 never marry a woman who
doesn't put me first!" he said. "And
that's my last word. I'll never go there
to live if you ask me a hundred years.
What're you going to do about it?"
She stood facing him suddenly an
gry.
"You're cruel!" she sobbed. "You're
hard and ruthless and unfeeling. You
know I can't leave that poor woman
alone and helpless. You're selfish and
your love is nothing but passion 1"
"All right!" quietly. "You've had
your say. Now I'm going. And you
need never come her again to meet
me. I'm done!"
Flinging aside her suddenly desper
ate hands Ignoring her broken "I
didn't mean it!" he strode off Into the
woods which opened and received him.
"Oh! Oh, Tim!"
Like a haunted wild creature of the
woods, the woman fled across the field.
Her eyes, wide and desperate, were
fixed on the beckoning finger of light
that streamed out from the corner
room downstairs her mother's
room.

THE BUTLER COUNTY PRB8R
Federal Court Holds Texas
Wage Rate Law Is Illegal
Austin, Tex.—A permanent injunc
tion against enforcement of the cur
rent rate of wages promulgated by
the state commissioner of labor has
been granted by the federal court
here.
Commissioner Robert B. Gragg and
Bryan Blalock, Travis county attor
ney, attempted to enforce payment of
the wage scale by contractors con
structing a building for the Univer
sity of Texas. The court held that
the law under which the state com
missioner acted was in conflict with
the fourteenth amendment to the
United States constitution.
Mr. Gragg orally announced that
he will appeal the case to the su
preme court of the United States in
an effort to get a final decision on
the validity of the Texas wage rate
law for public works.
FURLOUGH PLAN
WINS NEW TAX ON
Among the week's top news was
the victory of the furlough plan over
the straight pay-cut plan for gov
ernment employes. Pay standards re
main untouched, but employes must
take time off.
New taxes that hit every American
are now effective and inescapable.
Also during the week Senator
Borah bolted the Hoover ticket on the
same day it was announced that re
publicans plan to introduce a prohi
bition repeal amendment in congress
before election. Drys plan a life and
death fight to hamstring repeal
amendment.
Germany Cuts Idle Benefits
To Near-Starvation Basis
Berlin, Germany.—President Hin
denburg issued a decree reducing by
about 23 per cent the ordinary unem
ployment insurance relief, according
to a report by H. L. Groves, commer
cial attache of the American embassy
here.
President Hindenberg also reduced
emergency relief payments 10 per
cent, municipal welfai'e relief 15 per
cent, and called for heavy reductions
in other relief subsidies.
This drastic cut in relief benefits
reduces insured workers to a near
starvation basis. The president claims
this compulsory lowering of the liv
ing standards of the jobless workers
will save the German government
half a billion marks a year.
Railway Workers Coerced
To Increase Passengers
London, Eng.—The power of the
employers to coerce workers into
propaganda work for the employers'
interests was shown by the campaign
initiated by the organized railway ex
ecutives of Great Britain to secure
increased passenger transportation at
the expense of motor coaches.
"Every servant of the railways
must become a salesman for rail
ways," said Mr. Ashton Davies, pas
senger manager of the L. M. S. rail
way. "He must think railways, talk
railways, and even dream railways.
Even an ordinary conversation must
be brought round to the subject of
lailways."
§20,000,000 RELIEF FUND
Trenton, N. J.—The legislature en
acted bills to provide $20,000,000 for
emergency relief for the year begin
ning July 1. Included in this amount
was $4,121,566 boi'rowed from the
state teachers' pension fund. Bonds
for the $20,000,000 will be issued if
relief work makes the issue neces
sary.
There are 43 radio broadcast sta
tions in California.
HEP! HEPI
Hep! Hep!
We must keep step
With savagery and all Its gruesome
crimes.
Militarism's leader
Is hatred's prime feeder
He's the father of our major woes
and grief.
High crime is his profession—
We have not yet learned our lesson
Until we do we cannot hope for relief.
He is blatant in his scorn
For peaceful ideas born
In hearts of men and women every
where.
He claims that bloody strife
Is the keynote of normal life,
And peaceful ones are slackers who
don't dare.
He uses patriotism as a banner
With a hypocritical manner
In the guise of duty lures good men
to their death.
Militarism in the saddle
Gives out its quack and twaddle,
And that twaddle is love and hate in
one breath.
