G1iS.5 FONU TO BAITL[ NON -UNION ENTERPRISES (1''y 1 h' Federated Pretss.) Xtanc:hest.r, N. It.. Oct. 13, That a fund should be raised to fight the lion-union shop and in dlpndent unions was suggested by President John Golden to the Unit l00 Textile workers in. convention here. Although no names were mentioned, it was well understood that President Golden referred to the Amalgamated Textile Workers andtl to the Federation of Full Fash ion .,d Hosiery Workers. (;olden denounced the "open shoip" propaganda of the Steel Truiit and the Chamber of Conm irerco as a "deep laid plot to an nihilate organized labor. He called I the new unions "wildcat radical la bor unions." als One hundred and one new locals have beon organized 'during the past eleven mouths,' according to Mrs. C'omhoy, secretary treasurer of the organization. Most of them arc in southern textile conters. On'the matter of organization for I OUNTY REASUh1RE PUCKETT For Re-election on the INDEPENDENT TICKET ,(Paid Political Advertisement.) the next year both officials stressed the importance of organizing un touched textile centers in the Unit ed States and Canada and the rais ing of a million-dollar fund to com bat the "open-shop" propaganda. The 48-hour week still remains the goal of the union to be put into effect for the entire industry. SAYYOUSAW IT IN THE BULLETIN Union Stock Holders E in the - 4 Butte Daily Bulletin A. A. of S. E.
