It as attractinl a great deal of attention among labor men In general, for more reasons than one. It is claimed by members prominent In the Palnters union, that their last convention, which was held in Cncainnati. Dec. 194O, was largely domlnated by the Madden gang of Chicago. a evidenced by the fact that his henchman John M. Planu was elected first Vice-Pree dent. And further that George P. Hedrick, who is now up for e-election as OGeeral President was elected by the sme Inflatence. The Chicago ocal, of which John H. FPlan Is a member, local 147 is about as reactionary as they are to be found and rlanu is said to be representative of his local union.

'The McNamaras and their kind have done an irreparable injury to the movement of which they were a part, but that is no reason why the move ment should be blamed for the actions of a few men no matter who they may be, men of that kind may have thought that they would help the labor movement by such actions, but in my opinion they are the most dan gerous element that we have to con tend with, many are condemninal them but the broader minded persons will ezpres pity. let us hope it there are any more of their kind In our ranks that they will be purged from the movement. Organised tabor should not and will not be called upon to assume the reepoenibidty of this wtful crime by the fair minded people, it Is only the ignorant and S thtp will take advant else our movement for the actions of the McNamaras and McMani.al Hold your head up and resent tie acousation of any prejudiced pefse who may criticise us in this ease.

Ii "The strike situation from all points and angles looks good, so keep the good work up boys and above all to win.-Wm Hannon, International' Vice-President International Assoc lation of Macinlsts. ti VlvoPrestedst Brckalew's Repet. a All of last week I was meeting p with the Rock Island committee and a trying to reach a satisfactory settle- n ment with the management. For some time it looked .'ke a strike as the com- 11 pany had built fences around the b shops and made other peparations to a carry on a stike. The Fedeation was making a demand for two cents per t hour increase in wages which the a company refused to give and when a the Federation took a strike vote it began to look serious However, the ' matter was settled and you can tell any one concerned that In the midst I of the fight on the Illinois Central t and the Harriman lines, the general I one of the roads, the Rock Island managers assooatiaon has permitted System to sign up with the System Pederation and it Is a good agree meat too. The officers are now In a posltion to give your strike more attention as the Rock Island matter has taken up about two weeks of my time and In addition to that. I got all of the dale gates to agree to go home and those who had not already put on an asu awement, to do so for the benefit of the men now on strike, by this you will see that we are gaining s ground all the time. I know that if r the general managers wassolatlon felt Sthat there was a chance ler the others r to lose that they would never have j signed up wlh the Rock Isand Fed eration.

T1E OLD RED 8.HOOL HOIt'NI:. By Murray Yout. Twenty-five years ago the old cun try school house was indeed u-, d as a social center, for It Is there thl.t the people fer mi'es around would ither at light and hold an old time tI , Ihng match. etc Some of the greatest men thiis , ,on hY prooduced can trace th ir .xry beginning tu those old tmlne !' rary and debating clubs It Is the one feature above a:: :he1 that gave the school llfe, andl a ,s a common saying among you an ld old. "that they learned more 0,. iFri day night than during th, whole week." True we were never allowed to talk politlhr or debate religion, .Ind na turally because the politician oni, the preach, r wanted to do that. Whenver you find people %\ho do not want questions discused frm an educational standpoint In the schoo:. then look out for some body has an ax to grind. lome sixty years ago the qlustion was proposed at a school In Lancaster Ohio. for debate. "Resold. that railroad. are practical". The directos decided that to talk about people riding fifty miles an hour was the rankest heresy and so they did not permit that foolish discussion to take place. It the school is for aay purpose in the world It is for the purpose of teaeblng science. Politics is the science of 1i lIng. If there is a greater science than that living I would like to know what It la Terrible as is may seem to be. it is nevertheless a fact that the public scheol today is not what it should be. The procem of educaloa. instead of belng an Institution of dielight and antirtalnmeat, has really retrogressed to such an extent that It is looked upon by the young as a sort of punish meet for did you ever hear the mother say: "Now, Johnny. if you are not good you wifl have to go to school today." The question for the people to de. cide today is: Where would you rather see the family? In the demoralizing moving picture show, in the brothel, in t' saloon, or in the social center activit.. s of your district school? You can decide this when you vote for the school board CAST WEDDING RINGS IN C(OIlE('lION I.SKI'.T. The recent demonstration of the English suffragettes against the du, plicity of Premier Asquith towards their measure In Paralament was fol lowed by a gigantic me, ting In Albert Hall to collect funds for the ren w al ormihtant methods. Mr. Petthick-Lawrence, started th." bidding with o Huh.r pt ln of one thousand pounds ($5.000); and other large pledges followed with such hardly record them. Thee the baskets were passed, and when their contents came to he count. ed. It was found that among the notes and coins were bits of Jewellry of all kinds, including a large number of weddlag rings. In the hall there were rows and rows of working women. Tlhre is acacely any doubt that it is from them that the rings came. Wih most of them, It is their one bit of finery. as weal as the one touch of sentiment and beauty in their otherwise hard end barren lves Having nohing else to contribute to the promotion of the cause which they have come to see as their one way out, they gave they gave their wedding rings. That's how much suffrage means to the working women of England! How much does it mean to you? "What one man has done another can acomplish." Why, of course' One man in Texas owns fifty thou sand acres of land.
