COMMITTEE OF C. L. U.
REPLIES TO GLYNN
Connecticut Trade Schools Conducted For
Pockets of Manufacturers, is Charge
To the. Editor pf The Farmer:
In prominent head lines The Far
mer published the report of Supt.
Glynn a. few days ago and said the
report' had been-' sent to Washington
upon the request of Mr. Chas. Win
slow of the U. S. Labor Bureau, who
is preparing the report of the A. F.
of L. . on Industrial Education. .
Glynn by inference at least would gie
the Impression that the A. F. of abor
was interested in the methods employ
ed in the Connecticut Trades Schools,
and we can assure the citizens of this
state that the A. F. of T is interested
but does not sanction in any way the
said methods, for we believe our
Trades schools are not fulfilling their
mission, and believethe methods em
ployed to be absolutely the worst to
be found In this country.
We. note' Mr. Glynn says that there
js , a scarcity of mechanics-, in this
state and we need a chain of trade
schools to correct this evil, and if they
are to be conducted like the two . we
have, we will agree .with him,' for it
would need several more to turn out
good mechanics if the same methods
are employed. 1
But we challenge Mr. Glynn to enow
where there is a dearth of good, me
chanics in Connecticut, and the reason
for that is that manufacturers of oth
er states pay them higher wages and
get them to move out of the state.
This state has had expert mechanics
long before trade schools were heard
of and will continue to have them if
the manufacturers will only do their
duty and give their apprentices a
chance to learn a trade as they did
in the old days, and right here let us
aak, why should the 3tate of Con
necticut spend its taxpayers money
to- furnish the employers with me
chanics, who profit k by their labor?
Isn't it these same employers who no.w
want to shift their responsibility onto
the' state. We wonder how the vot
ers" of this" state"wuV view these trade
schools when their methods are ex
plained to, them, as they certainly will
be before the next legislature con
venes . at Hartford. A- trade school
that is run . for profit is absolutely
wrong, in the first place a great mis
take was made when our schools ac
cepted, & contribution of about $10,
000 from the manufacturers. A trade
school should be under no obligation
to anyone and should be run abso
lutely independent of ahy one:':;What
right has ' this trade school to make
the boys ring up their time and make
them work nine hours a' day? and
boldly Mr. Glynn says it Is, to get
hem accustomed . to shop methods. ;
What -right has the state of Connec
ticut to spend the taxpayers' money
to v help the manufacturers keep -In
vogue the nine and ten hour day. I
this one of the functions a trade
school? ; ' ... t , '- '
We challenge i Mr. Olynn . to rihaw
where other trade schools employ like
methods. Again, a trade school with

The schools of the above namsH
states are conducted to teach a boy

facturers. Again we are informed that
work is sent to the Bridgeport trade
school by some of the manufacturers
and is done for nothing, the manu
facturer simply taking the risk of the
stock being spoiled. The trade schools
of Connecticut have got to divorce
themselves from these methods and
from their close alliance with the man
ufacturers or else instead of having
a chain of trade schools, we will work
hard to put; out of -commission the
two already here. j
