PITIFUL HUNGER PARADE
London, June 15. London to-daywitnes.sed-the
most pitiful of
a long list of pitiful' "hunger par
ades." Wives and children of the sev
eral hundred striking dock work
ers attempted a "hunger march"
as a demonstration of the desper
ate straits to which they were re
duced because of the low wages
paid the men. Thousands started
-in the parade. The proposed
route was a long one, winding
through the business districts.
So weakened by hunger were
most of the marchers that the
route planned was abandoned.
Many of the, women and younger
children dropped exhausted be
fore they ha'd marched two
blocks. It was then decided to'
confine the demonstration to the
dock .districts.
All of "London did not see the
gaunt marchers, but that part
which did jead a terrible indict
ment of industrial conditions at
the docks.
The Strikers today decided not
to resume work until the trans
port workers general federation is
recognized by the authority of
the port, of London.
