Barlow Hatfield, president of the Building Contractors' Association of Indianapolis. Although these two uuions did not Join In the general walk out of the Building Trades Union they are a part of the Building Trades Coun cil, which ordered the strike. The decision to accept a cut in wages is expected by the employers to have an effect on the other unions. Mr. Hatfield's statement Is as follows: "The Bricklayers' and Masons’ Union, whose contract did not expire until May 1, 1921, have signified their willingness to accept a wage reduction for the year ending April 30, 1922. of 80 cents rer day. Likewise the Hodcarrlers and Ma sons' Tenders Union have agreed to a wage reduction of 40 cents per day for the same period. “These two unions have apparently seen the trend of the times and are will ing to accept lower wages in order to lower building costs and stimulate building. And while these two unions did not come under the Building Trades Council mandate to strike April 18 on account of their contract not expiring until May 1, they are members of the Building Trades Council and as such are subject to its rules and regulations. "The Bricklayers and Hodcarrlers. while accepting the wage reduction above set forth, have not yet signified their willingness to accept the terms and con ditions of the uniform contract terms of which contract are now under discussion between the bosses and union men. ’’The Building Contractors' Association Insists that certain restrictive clauses be eiemlnated from all contracts, including bricklayers and hodcarrlers. and Is standing their ground In making opera tive, reasonable contracts between all unions and the contractors, in order that building work may not be hampered in tbe future. “1 am optimistic as to the outcome of the negotiations that have been going on with tbe bricklayers and hod-carriers and believe that proper working condl. tions will be Incorporated in the con tract agreements and with the wage re duction, expect that harmonious relations will be established between these two unions, the Building Trades Council and the Building Contractors' Association.” South Side Women on Fire Prevention Body At x th* request of the Chamber of Com merce, Mrs. Martin L.
