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 ihe least.
A number of plastering contractors
today .broke away from their associa

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

strike, but will simply give the men
the advantage of association with the
national labor body.
