Organized labor yesterday came to
the aid 6f the Chicago school teachers
when a committee from the Chicago
Federation of Labor appeared before
the finance committee of the school
board and pleaded for a 20 per cent
raise in salaries for the teachers.
It was the first time in Chicago's
history that union labor had taken
up the fight of the teachers. And the
members of the school board seemed

the board to submit this question of
increased pay for teachers for in

any outside organization," said E. C.
Dillon. "We do not approve of the
efficiency division of the city civil
service. We have investigated it and
found no use for it."
"Organized labor stands to de
crease working hours," said Abraham
Peterson. "The teachers are bring
ing this protest as working people.
They work with their brain as hard
as others do with their muscles.
There is nothing to prevent the en
gineers getting 20 per cent increase
for their extra hour of work, and in
event you must work the teachers
another hour, then pay the union rate
