Warner Mrs.' Scully, Organizer, Counsels Girls To Guard Rights Carefully And to Live Up Strictly To . . ". Their Agreement Girls ; General Good Feeling Prevails. Accused of misstEvtmg the terms of the agreement - which the strikers' committee and Mrs. Mary Scully ob tained from the Warner Bros. Co., several men : who had been acting as interpreters at the meeting to ratify the agreement at . Eagles' hall late yesterday afternoon were all but mob bed by the Indignant women. 4ne Of them dropped the paper he had been reading and sneaked from the stage into the crowd in the wings. An other was summarily hustled on? the stage and made his escape down a back stair case bift not until some of the girls had scratched his face and pulled his hair. , N ; The strikers were assembled in the hall, many being obliged to stand and about 2:80 Mrs.- Scully arrived with the agreement which DeVer H.VWar ner had signed on behalf of his com pany. - She wanted the strikers to ratify the agreement but the Hunga rian women refused, crying continual ly in Hungarian, "no!" Emil Steiner who has ' addressed several meetings of the strikers talked first to the Hungarian women. Then Elmer Rosenberg, an officer of the joint board of the Cloak Makers Un in of New York city tried to talk but the women wouldn't listen to him. Mm Scully was mystified. "There; s a -colored gentleman in the woodpile somewhere," she said. A few minutes afterward it all came out. : Andrew Mikewicz, a local Po lish agitator, was speaking to the Po lish women when a young girl stood up in the gallery and called out, "Mrs. Scully t" ."All right my dear, keep still a moment until this gentleman finishes," replied Mrs. Scully. ; ' "No, (Mrs. Scully, he is telling these girls wrong. -He is not telling them the agreement the way you told it in English," shouted back the girl. ' "I understand Hungarian", shouted another girl "that' Steiner didn't tell the agreement ' right either. He ad vised the girls not to sgo back and so -did that . Pole. I know both lan guages." Pandemonium then broke loose in the hall, all the women talking and chattering at once, in a half dozen different languages. , Mrs. Scully nearly wora out her arm rapping for. order with the piece .of . a , chair she had been using (for a gavel. When quiet was ' restored .: again ' she burst out: '-"' s , . . , .-' ., ; "I am only a woman but if anyone tries 4o put anything over on me I'll lick the man who does it. Every man interpreter I have had here has tried to double cross me. Now I'll run this meeting myself. I want one of you girls who can speak the lan guage to help me.". Mikewicz laid down his paper and beat a hasty retreat from the stage. Steiner was met a few minutes later by officials of the local ' Central La bor body who had been summoned by Mrs. Scully and he Was. ordered to leave the-hall". ' Mrs. Scully said: "I want one of you girls . who un derstands Hungarian and can explain this agreement to the Hungarian wo rkmen to come on the stage and do so." A rather pretty and stylishly dressed young girl came forward and took the paper and under Mrs.' Scully's direc tion repeated the terms of the agree ment. When she had finished they readily 'ratified it. .They had .been told by the male speakers, the girls said; that the highest wages they could receive . under ' the agreement was $5.50 per weekj "When it was ex plained "that this wai the lowest ige that woufd be received and pjjece workers would be paid , as much as they made there was general applause and the Hungarian women- readily agreed. ." . - '"' $ This same procedure " was carried out with other nationalities. Bright and pretty girls were called from the assemblage to explain the terms of the strike in Italian, Lithuanian, and Po lish. - ,. . ' When , the unanimous vote was ta ken 'ratifying the agreement there was cheering loud and strong enough to raise the room. Mrs. Scully ad dressing the girls regarding the agree ment that had been secured with the Warner Bros. Co., said in part: - "Now girls, don't forget your un ion. It is backed by the American Federation of Labor. I want every girl to join. You have something no union in this city-has ever had, a grie vance committee to , which you can take your troubles if anything is wrong, and have them remedied. -" "In this agreement with your un ion you have a wonderful instrument to play on, but play classic music, don't play ragtime. Stick to your or ganization and be fair with yourselves and with the boss and you will find it all clear sailing. t Your only hope in keeping up your agreement and in living up to it is in your union. "I am a worker myself and I know how hard it is. I was left a widow without money and with five children to raise and I - know what it is to be without money to pay the rent and to have to dodge the landlord. That's why I'm in the labor movement be cause it is the only way we women can get anything. If we don't stand up for our rights the men won't stand up for us. Women .organizers have entered the labor movement and left it again because they cannot stand the insults and abuse from men who ought to know better. They cannot stand to be hustled by the police and to be called 'grafters' by others if they1 lose or settle a strike. Why I have serv ed nine months in jail for activity in trying to organize women workersnike yourselves. This life is not an easy one but I am in it toStay. I am go- ing to stay right here in Bridgeport and organize the other women, work ers and I am going to stay here and help you keep your union going if it takes six months." There was much cheering for Mrs. Scully -when she had finished. - At & meeting held in Eagles hall last night 3,200 girls paid their ini Return to Work Today, and tiation fee of fifty cents and became members of a local of the Internation al textile workers of America. The number of the local will be fixed later and officers and. a business agent named. The rush to enroll in the un ion nearly swamped Mrs. Scully and a squad of volunteer workers who took the applications and moQey last night. During the taking and signing of the membership applications a number of girls procured tin horns and soon a din was being raised that could be heard for blocks away. After the meeting the girls organized them selves into an " impromptu parade. They raised improvised banners on sticks with such expressions as "Hur rah for D. H.. Warner," "Hurrah for the 8 hour day." The parade, cheer ing and tooting horns passed down Main street and then broke into two divisions one going to the South End the other to the West End. All returned to work to-day. ---There was much cheering as the girls entered the factories, to resume their - work under the -'greatly improved condi tions.
