major organizations, but that the re
serve clause will not be respected.
For instance, if a man has signed
with the Cubs for next year he will
not be tampered with. But if he is
merely under reserve the Feds will
have no hesitancy in agoing to him
with a contract.

The American Federation of Labor
has recognized and granted a charter
to the Newsboys' Union of Chicago.
At a meeting held last night at 80
W. Washington street a charter was
presented to them by President John
Fitzpatrfck of the Chicago Federa
tion of Labor.
This is a distinct blow to the News
papers Publishers' Ass'n, which has
persistently fought any attempt on
the part of the newsboys to come
under the protecting wing of the par
ent labor union body.
It is a great victory for the boys
and proves the newspaper trouble of
last summer was not in vain. They
have arisen from that much stronger
than ever before.
The newspaper publishers, in their
fight against the affiliation of the
newsboys and A. F. of L., set; forth
the ridiculous claim that newsboys
were "merchants" and they would re
fuse to regard them as laboring men
or as members of the labor organi
zation. With this protection of the nation
al body the boys will be able to wipe
out some of the circulation methods
made stylish among circulation boss
es by Max Annenberg, first as circu
lation manager of the American and
now with the Tribune.
The American Federation of Labor
also granted charters to two other
newsboys' unions in addition to the
Chicago local.
