RAIL MEN MORALLY
OBLIGATED TOPEACE ? i tf. S. Labor Board Endeavors I to Prevent Interruption I of Traffic. ' BOSTON1, January 27.?Hallway 1 managements and their employes liavo a moral obligation to avoid In- i terruptlon of traflie and the United States Railroad Labor Board Is en- i deavoring to lead both carriers ami t rail workers to carry out this obli- . satlon, Ben YV. Hooper, vfco chairman of the Labor Board, declared today be fore the Boston Chamber of Com-j meres. Mr. Hooper. G. IV. \V. Hanger, pub- ] Ho member, and W. L.. MeMeuimen, labor member of the board, were Kuests of the chamber at a luncheon, ? v/here Mr. Hooper voiced the opinion j that America had passed through "the ' winter of our discontent" and was j now standing on tiptoe, with the slo gan of the vernacular on her Hps, '.Let's go!"" "The hard pull is over," the former Governor of Tennessee said. "The ? farmer is the only man in the country wlio has really deflated. He alone ?lid not have the parachute of organi zation to retard his descent and break his fall. The next time this country takes an interna::? *ial joyride in the Zeppelin of war t*.ariner will ha?e his parachute along with him and will not be invited to step out on a storm cloud and slido down on a rainbow." Expert* Work Increaae. Mr. Hooper said he expected the number of railway employes to be. largely increased in the spring, that revenues would be enlarged l.y in creased business and that conditions would probably justify a reduction 01* rates, "which is so essential to the restoration of normal business." In returtt to normal, Gov. Hooper ?aid, the ^railroads hud accomplished the tranmton without any general strike or Serious disturbance. "As a rule, both managements and employes have co-operated cordially In carrying out the transportation act," Mr. Hooper said. "This has not been easy for either side. The rail roads have had to contend with finan cial difficulties, and have been con tinually subjected to the temptation of taking the bit in their teeth and trying to get relief by independent action more quickly than the Labor Board considered it just and reason able to give to them. Only a few carriers have succumbed to this temp tation. and, in every instance, friction and discontent have resulted. "The complaints of the employes have been that certain carriers, to avoid dealing with labor organiza tions, have disregarded the rights of the majority guaranteed by the trans portation act, that certain carriers have evaded the board's wage orders by having receivers in charge put into effect wage orders of the courts "Without submitting the matter to the board, and that certain carriers have evaded the wage decisions of the board by contracting or claiming to contract certain classes of their work to independent contractors. Provocative Situations. ??Whatever may be the merit of these contentions of the employes, it Is evident that tliey involve provoca tive situations. Under somewhat try ing circumstances the employes have exhibited commendable self-restraint. "On the other hand, practically all j the carriers have promptly put into i effect decisions of the labor board1 ?with which they were not in thor- j ough accord, and have struggled pa- i tiently and courageously with dis- i couraging conditions. j "The question will occur to you,! l*, t^ie ^ear ?* ^ie condemnation of public sentiment always secure the obedience #f the parties to the deci-! sions of the Railroad Labor Board, or j will there come a time when power ful motives of self-interest will in-! duce one or the other to trample un der foot the board's decisions and' override public opinion? j "I would not underestimate the i potency of public opinion. It exerts' a tremendous influence in this coun- j try of ours. My personal view is' that neither the carriers nor their employes have the moral right to discontinue railway operation to en force the demands of either upon the other. "It must not be forgotten that there are some labor leaders and certain labor periodicals which per sistently preach the disquieting doc trine that the toilers of this country cannot trust the courts and tribunals having jurisdiction of their troubles. The Railroad Labor Board, if moved by a profound desire to do justice, may largely counteract this destructive preachment, and that without slop ping over a like neurasthenic parlor communist.** f ASSIGNED TO CAMP MEADE.
