'Halbert Smith scores coming peace
conference of warring postal clerks'
This morning brought the rumor
that 18,000 had carriers and building
trades laborers would strike May 1
to get signatures to their desired
Adolph Schreiber, secretary of the
German Hod Carriers' union, today
emphatically and flatly denied that
there was any possibility of a strike.
"We have won the employers to
our way of thinking and -with no rum
bus or trouble," said Schreiber. "With
one exception, everything we asked
for has been granted and we expect
to gain that point Anyway, a strike
talk is premature, to say the least.
A number of plastering contractor?
today broke away from their associa

White City Council of lathers. For
the. lathers this is the most auspic

The peace conference of the United
National Ass'n of Post Office Clerks,
billed for May 9, may no.t be so peace

tends affiliation with the A. F. of L.
will not mean any possibility of a
strike, but will simply give the men
the advantage of association with the
national labor body.
