KNAB IS HANDED JOLTS IN
Bakers and cooks employed at
George Knab's bakery at 52d street
and Calumet avenue walked out on
strike yesterday in sympathy with
the waitresses. ""
And while Knab was trying to
overcome the disorder into which
that threw his string of restaurants
he was handed another blow. Wagon
drivers and delivery-men refused- to
deliver to his restaurants.
Fred Eberling, president df the
Cooks' Union, announced last night
that 50 members of hi sorganization
would join the girls on the picket line
thrown about the restaurants owned
by the three unfair bosses, Knab, L.
Walter Powers and B. P. Efting. '
An unsuccessful attempt was made
to settle the strike last night, as Knab
is holding out for a non-union shop
Fifty policemen were assigned to

MISS STARR MAKES STATEMENT
ON WAITRESSES' STRIKE
Since the Chicago press seems de
termined to make a sensational figure
of me, I am glad to explain apropos
of my alleged remarks last night to
the waitresses, cooks and bakers,
that I should not presume for a mo

their strike against the Knab res
taurants. They have entirely com

and do not require my assistance or
I chanced into their meeting at 9
o'clock last night, supposing it 'to be
a meeting of Household Workers,
which I had been asked to address,
was warmly greeted and asked to
speak. I made an entirely common
place little speech about organization
and the indispensableness of unions
to the Interests of the workers, a
speech which anybody who believe in
the organization of labor would
make, and said that ah outside sym
pathizer could not, of course, advise
them at all as to their tactics, but
that I should do what I could to
make their cause known- to the pub
lic. I have already spoken several
times and a madvertised to speak on
the evening of May 10 at the Grace
Church Evening Service Forum, Wa
bash avenue near Fifteenth street,
on "Efforts to Standardize Chicago
Though not imagining my pres
ence at all necessary, I should have
been glad to show my unabated in
terest and sympathy in their cause
by being present with the pickets Fri
day, did not a severe Influenza and
cough keep me at home.
