ILMEN TO MOVE FOR 6-HOUR DAY. Meetings in New England Ad dressed by Samuel E. Wigs low and Timothy Shea. By the Associated Press. BOSTON, April I.—A Nation-wide campaign for a six-hour day to com bat unemployment \yas launched here yesterday by the Brotherhood of Rail road Trainmen and its companion or ganization. the Brotherhood of Loco motive Firemen and Enginemen. Simul taneous meetings of New England mem bers of both brotherhoods were held in the American House and in Faneuil Hall, where 13 years ago the drive for the present eight-hour day for railroad employes began. Samuel E. Winslow, chairman of the United States Board of Mediation, came here to address the eng.neers and fire men. but after he had spoken of the success of his board "in keeping labor troubles out of sight and in preventing them." Timothy Shea, assistant presi dent of the engineers, said. "We must go to Congress for a bill of rights to protect men who are being cast into the junk heap." "In 1927," Shea continued, "the num ber of operating employes on the roads of this country numbereu less than 1,- 700.000. while in 1920. the previous peak year of history, more than 2.000.000 men were required. With plans under con templation which will mean the com bining of 1.700 railroads under the con trol of the Interstate Commerce Com mission in 18 or 20 big systems, it means that this brotherhood alone will have at least 20.000 more men out of jobs. "Neither the railroad labor act nor any other leg ; slation can prevent the railroad men of this country from walk ing out on strike to get justice. The act is a good thing and will prevent trouble, but when the railroads refuse to participate in the proceedings before the regional boards, other methods of settling disputes will have to be put into effect.” Share in Froductlon. The trainmen were addressed bv their president, Alexander F. Whitney of Cleveland, who said. "I do not believe that the inveulir -of labor-saving ma chinery should reap all ii ~ returns from his invention, but only a share, so that the employer and employe, especially the latter, who has been hardest hit, may share in the increased production through higher wages and shorter work ing hours.” "No nation ran continue great.” he concluded, “unless it corrects its social evils, and unemployment is one of the greatest of these evils.” A series of regional meetings in New England and all other parts of the country were planned by both organiza tions as part of their campaign. Whit ney said that the union would call upon employers to maintain the present basic wage in grapting the six-hour day. SERVED BY ARCHBISHOP. Koyal Pair of England Partake of Easter Communion.
