railroad executives testified.
Vote Came Late.
The vote ending the strike came
late last night after all day sessions
of the union leaders. Early in the day
general chairmen of each of the five
organizations conferred separately. In
the afternoon a Joint,session was held
which was addressed lay Ben W.
Hooper of the labor board. Mr. Hoop
er's appearance before the board Is
naid by union leaders to have marked
the turning point which led to the
final decision.
Mr. Hooper is said to have stressed
I hp board's announcement that no
further wage cuts for any diss of
employes will 'be considered until
working conditions for that class of
employes have been settled. He Is
also said to have emphasized the an
nouncement of the rail -executives
made at Wednesday's hearing that no
changeo In either'wages or working
conditions will be soufeh't except thr.u.

A Fighting Professor.
Marshal Ferdinand, Foeh nyght
well be'called the fighting professor.
One of the foremost lecturers on
military subjects in Europe, he won
honors on the early battlefields of the
worjd war and in its last year, as the
supreme commander of an Allied
force of 10,000,000 men, sucessfully
practised the strategy he had
preached so many years in the French
war college.
The morning of November 11, 1918
found him, a marshal of "France, sit
ting In his private car behind the
lines, sqioklng his pipe and waiting,
in the unnatural calm that followed
the hushing of the big guns, the com
ing of the German envoys to ask for
peac,e at the Allies' price. The pro
fessor's theories of strategy and moral
force in warfare had been vindicated.
Foch fought in the Franco-Prus
sian war as a second lieutenant, as
did Joffre. They were both born in,
the south of France. Foch worked
for the rest of his li^e with the
shame fe.nd humiliation of that debacle
In his mind. He studied the battle
fields of that war until he knew them
as well as hlq own .back yard. He
studied the German war machine,
the psychology of its leaders, the
reasons for their mistakes and their
successes.
Books. 4...
As' a general commanding a force
of 126,000 men, Foch found himself
opposed by a German army of 200,
000 men at- the first battle of the
Marne in 19H. As the battle pro
gressed, aides rushed in to warn him
both his wings were being pushed
back. "We ihust attack in the cen
ter," said Fo'ch. "Order up the Mor
occans."
The German center, composed' of
Prussian guards, the flower of their
army, gave way under this unex
pected onslaught and later airplane
observation brought news to Foch of
a gap in the German line. He pushed
irt a wedge of infantry, supported by
heavy artillery, and dawn found the
Germans In a panic and retreat.

The early vote in the various wards
