12 THE WASHINGTON TIMES, MONDAY, JULY 26, 1915.' "Tw'fwjpB;'l', MACHINISTS WILL WAIT FOR PRESIDENT Will Not Press Navy Yard Wage Demands Until After Con . ference. If President Wilson wishes to talk over the situation at the Washington Navy Yard with representatives of the machinists there, a delegation will go to Cornish. If ho wishes to delay the conference, the leaders of the navy yard workers will not press the matter until ie gets back. This announcement was Biade today by N. P. Allfas, president of the organization comprising all ma chinists In Government employ. In deference to the wish of President Wilson for a conference about the mat ter, the meeting tonight also was called oft, and, unless a demand Is made by the workers, there will be no meeting until after the President has gono over the points at issue with the special com mittee named to represent the men. On this committee, beside Mr. Allfas, are Stuart G. McAlllBter, J. T. Donnelly, A. De Greet, and Bernard Dadd. Another reason for the continued de lay of men who had signed up with the Remington Arms Company, at Eddy stone, Pa., In leaving for their now place of employment was learned to day. The Bridgeport strike, and the feat that such a strike might become general throughout the Remington plants kept the men from going last week. But even after the strike at Bridgeport had been settled, the men hesitated, because of the report that they were to be compelled to work under the Taylor system at Eddystone. Definite assurance was made through the representatives of the EdJystone plant here today that the system is not to be Introduced there, and the promise also was given that there are to be no special premium awards. In view of these promises the position of the men who are awaiting the ac tion of the President to decide wheth er they will leave the yard, has been strengthened. Nearly 300 men, It is asserted, would leave directly for Eddystone If the decision of the President sustains the wage cut ordered by Secretary Daniels. TO BE FALL STYLE At Least, That's What's Ex pected If No-Tip Barbers Put in 40-Cent Haircut. ' Watch out for this sign: "No tips." (So far so good, but read on.) "Hair cut, 40 cents; shave, 25 cents." That started in Philadelphia, and no man knoweth how soon it may swat the Capital in its whiskered spots. Nor is that all. There aro to be no more barber shop courtesies, little things like a hot towel, or bay rum, or cologne for your eyebrows, or cocoa butter on your face. If you wish these tonsorlal desserts you pay for them. Such Is the decision of the Master and Journeymen Barbers' Associa tion, meeting in Philadelphia, which is a Quaker City organization, but whoso members are scattered over other cities. These barbers have sized up their patrons. There ure some "cheap skates " It was averred at the gath ering, 'who don't get their hair cut onco every tw.o weeks. There are other fellows who shave themselves and then go to the barber shops to have their hair cut. One delegate advocated tha.t the back of the necks of such "cheap guys" be left unshaved when they did make their occasional barber shop visits for hair cuts. ' Washington barbers are watchfully watting. For the last year, it is said, tips havo been less frequent, and to UllBCl litis UaiuciD niw uuuu vjai.uo to the tonsorlal menu until most of them have a bill of fare that looks like a soda fountain card or quick lunch room "flimsy." In a few hotels a 35-cent hair cut and a 25-cent shave already are administered to patrons. None of the regulation shops have tried that yet. But they are anxiously waiting to see whether enough barbers In Philadelphia carry out their threats at their recent meeting to see whether a department clerk will stand for a 40-cent hair cut. Drag Channel for Body Of Frank Keppel Police of the Harbor precinct are to day dragging the Washington channel near the Army War College in an ef fort to recover the body of Prank Keppel, forty-five, who fell from a launch early yesterday evening and was drowned. Keppel. whose home was at 142 Heck man street southeast, and who was em ployed by the Texas OH Company, went down the river on Saturday night with a party in the launch Greenleaf. They came back up the river late yesterday and when near Washington picked up a disabled motor boat and were bring ing it back in tow. Going to the rear of the launch to fix a stern light. Keppel lost his balance, drowning before aid could reach him. He leaves a wife and Ave ehlldren. $1.00 To Harpers Ferry and Return July 29th, from Union Station 8:40 a. m.. returning same day.
