Shipyards Workers' Strike in England'
and Ireland Spreads to Other Indus

Soldiers Are Co-Operating---Glasgow,

London, Jan. 28.-The industrial war which broke out in
Britain and Ireland is beginning to fight in the interests of the
demobilized soldiers, labor officials said. It is denied that the
strikers are in any way connected with bolshevism. The
strike situation, which resulted in paralyzing shipbuilding,
and seriously affecting other industries, is unchanged. It is
believed the troub!e will be extended later through sympa
thetic walkouts. Nearly two hundred thousand are striking
in various parts of the country.

London, Jan. 28.-Nation -wide sllipbulilding strikes ar o0;.
in Britain and Ireland. Other industries are being rapidly tied
up by sympathetic strikes. Belfast is practically paralyzed by
a strike in sympathy with the walkout of 40,000 fhipyard em
ployes, who demanded a 44-hour week. Twelve thousand
London shipbuilders struck today, asking for a wage increase.
A partial striLe is also on in the Glasgow yards and threat
ening to become complete before night. Shipbuilders and
engineers in the Leith and Edinburgh yards also quit work. A
sympathetic strike of all allied trades is threatened unless de
mands are granted.
San Francisco, Jan. 2S.-The govc'nment intends t3 with
hold shipbuilding contracts at all points where labor and cap
ital cannot agree on the basis of the IMacy award. Th'is be
came evident today when the government, following a policy
established in the Fuget sound district, cancelled 30 steel ship
contracts on mere threat of strike Feb. 1.
H. A. Brotherton, special industrial examiner for the ship
ping board, made the threat that if a strike occurr, salifornia
will lose $300,000,000 in contracts, meaning a monthly payroll
of $10,000,000.

Seattle, Jan. 28.-Executive committeemen, representing
130 unions affiliated with the Seattle Central Labor council,
yesterday voted to campaign for "mass action" and a general
strike Feb. 1 in support of the 25,000 metal trades workers
who have been on strike here since last Tuesday for higher
wages. This vote was reached after the committeemen re

Building Trades council, asking that a general strike be
New York, Jan. 28.-Thousands of unemployed discharged
soldiers, sailors and marines plan a demonstration in front of
the city hall this afternoon, demanding that officials take of
ficial steps to provide them with suitable jobs. Arrangements
for the demonstration were made by a newly-organized sol
diers', sailors' and marines' protective association. Officials of
the association declared it was organized to get returning sol
diers a "square deal." Hundreds of soldiers, sailors and ma
rines attending a meeting of the association last night became
riotous and was dispersed by militarypolioe and naval guards.

editor of the radical newspaper, Populalre, whom the so

conversations with associated powers, which would permit
them to establish claims and answer their enemies.
