On Some Roads, the Managers and the
Shopmen are Trying to Come
To an Agreement
Chicago, July 24. (By Associated
Press). With government officials
maintaining silence in regard to the
railroad strike except for the an
nouncement of Chairman Hooper that
the railroad labor board would make
nr iuiiuci inure xu tut; pre seiii., in
terest today turned to separate peace
efforts of the railroads and strikers.
Officials of the Baltimore & Ohio had
a meeting at Baltimore with repre
sentatives of the strikers and despite
the failure of last week similar efforts
will be made at St. Paulby the north
western roads. It is confidently pre
dicted that the Baltimore conference
will obtain favorable results.

Cleveland Gives Common Laborers
More than Railway Employes
Receive ' '
(Press Information Service)
Cleveland, July 24. rThe city
Cleveland is advertising widely for
common laborers to handle the 'city's
garbage at 72 cent san hour, with
permanent and tseady employment.
Skilled laborers in the garbage plant
are offered as high as $6.75 a day. By
a striking coincidence in the same
papers and often on the ' same page
are advertisements of railroad com
panies for skilled machinists, boijer
makers, electricians, car repairmen
and inspectors, to take the place of
these high-class employes who are
striking against the wage slash just
ordered by the railroad labor board.
These skilled employes, upon whose
faithful services the safety of every
traveler on the railroads ""depends,
have been cut as low as $3.98 a day.
The very highest paid shop mechanics
have just, been ordered by the decision
of the U. S. labor board to work for
less money than the city of Cleveland
is paying its common unskilled labor
in the garbage department.
Indeed, " these unskilled workers,
without any ; responsibility whatever,
are receiving within 5 cents a doy of
the $5.81 average wage of railway
engine service employes, the highest
paid group in the employ of the rail
roads! Skilled labor at the city gar
bage plant is receiving nearly a dollar
a day more. ' - J
low , wages paid skilled railway em
ployes and thevwages paid to ordinary
unskilled workers by private employ
ers who have a regard for the wel
fare of their men provides an answer
'to the question: "What is wrong with
" American railroads?" The transpor
tation industry of the country de
mands "such a high degree of skill and
exacts such rigorous fidelity to duty,
often with the penalty of imprison
ment for a mistake resulting in the
loss of human life, that the very best
human material obtainable is neces
sary for its safe and efficient opera
tion, v This class of workers cannot
be secured nor long retained on an
unskilled garbage maa's wage-

The recruiting honors this year
easily go to the Fourth Corps Area.
Last year this corps area led until the
very end when the third got slightly
ahead. We have investigated then
methods and find that the general
plan they followed was that generally
followed throughout other corps areas
and not due to any special stunt of
their own. We attribute their success
to two things: First, making circu
lars, letters and publicity attractive.
Their success emphasizes the import
ance of having this work done by a
man who knows how to write a f ore-
ful letter that will bring a response.
Too much of the circularization in the
recruiting is couched .. in military
terms with technical expressions
that is of a dead and stilted form that
does not appeal to the imagination of
civilians. Secondly, the Fourth Corps
Area covers a territory (North and
South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia,
Florida, Mississippi and Tennessee),
which has always been distinguished
for its military spirit. The South has
more military schools and colleges
than any other section of the coun
try. Although an agricultural popu
lation and with a big percentage of
the population consisting of blacks,
who do not go to these camps, never
theless, military camps nnd a re
sponse in the South that is' particn
larly strong.

Next Thursday, July 27th, will be
a big day in Citra when good roads
enthusiasts will gather there from
throughout Marion county and from
many, other points in the state for a
genuine old fashioned' barbecue and a
good roads rally in behalf of the links
in the highways between Citra and
Orange Springs and Citra and the
new road across Orange Lake.
Preparations for the day are going
forward rapidly and a big crowd is
expected. a A speaker's stand, band
stand and sheltered tables for the
serving of the barbecue and ' several
booths are already being erected in
the shade of the beautiful live" oak
trees in Citra's public park.
The barbecue will be in charge of
Jim Gates, the famous Georgia bar
becue artist. Prominent speakers
who are good roads' advocates will
make addresses. The program of the
day. will' get under way about 11:20
Thursday morning. Dinner will b
served about o'clock. The Ocala
band will furnish the-music. "t'','
A general committee on arrange
ments "consists of C. A. Sommers,
chairman, E. L. Wartmann and W. T.
DuPree. All of Citra's stores wiU be
closed next Thursday. Cold drinks
will be sold in the park by the Citra
Improvement Society for the benefit
of this organization. The barbecue,
of course, will be free to everyone. '

public interest in the completion of
the two links' of highway between
Citra "and Orange Springs and Citra
and Island Grove. The Citra-Orange
Springs link of about twelve miles
connects at Orange Springs with . a
good road into 'Palatka and at Citra
with a good road into Ocala and is a
part of a short route from Jackson
ville to St. Petersburg. The short
stretch of about a mile between Citra
and Orange Lake would connect with
the road now being built across -the
lake by Alachua county and is a part
of what will eventually be a - short
route between Tampa, , Ocala and
Jacksonville. i

(Leesburg Commercial)
E. H. Mote, one of Leesburg's most
progressive citizens, is making ex
tensive improvements in his property.
Treasure Island, a large island in the
center of Lake Griffin. This : island
consists of 116 acres but he has only
55 acres improved.
Mr. Mote recently purchased 1250
banana plants of the most improved
species and has set them out on the
bland. It is contended by many peo
ple that the banana, will produce as
prolifically" in Florida as any place
in the world and the owner of the isl
and is going to give it a trial and see
for himself if that be true.' He be
lieves that the soil of the ground that
he owns in Lake Griffin is as well
suited for the culture of the banana as
any other in the state. If Mr. Mote
makes a success of the raising of this
fruit it may give an impetus to banana
culture in Lake county. He purchas
ed the plants from P. N. Shanibarger,
of Pine Castle.
