Chicago, July 30.Illinois coal
operators today joined the Indiana
producers in demanding that union1
officials force the resumption pf.wchflt
in bituminous fields before wage mat
ters be discussed.
Representative? of all Illinois
fields here preliminary to the meet
ing of the wage-scale committee of
the central competitive field decided
on this course today. Operators de
manded that the miners live up to
their agreements.
Chicago, July 30.Coal operators*
of Indiana yesterday declined to par-'
ticlpate in a joint conference with
the miners as suggested by John
Lewis, president of the United Mine
Workers of Illinois, with a view to
changing or amending the interstate
agreement and the commerce com
mission's award.
The execrMvo committee of the In
diana Bituminous Coal operators as
sociation in announcing, its action
said it was influenced by "the fact
that all contracts, s-ta*c and inter
state, were but a reuilirmatlon and
acceptance by the operators and min
ers of an award mandatory in its
provisions."
MOTHER'S CIATB
i
C. Hield and Miss Mary Muckley
for the Red Cross.
It was determined at this meeting
that local public health associations
shall continue to put on traveling
clinics, such as tubercular, eye and
ear, nutrition and dental clinics, un
der the supervision of the Minnesota
Public Health association, and that
in all cases where a county nurse
is not available the Red Cross shall
pledge the assistance of one of its
nurses, either from the field or fTpm
headquarters.
Preparations for the clinic, it was
agreed, will be made by the Red
Cross, and the follow-up work after
wards will be done by the same or
ganization. In order that sufficient
time shall be assured to make the
work successful in each case, it was
determined that the local health asso
ciation shall be required to notify
the Minnesota PuhHj Health asso
ciation a month before the date set
of Its intention to hold the clinic,
and that the information shall be
passed on Immediately to the Red
Cross by the Minnesota Public Health
association. This will make it pos
sible for both organizations to make
adequate preparations, to avoid the
possibility of delay or the miscarry
ing of plans, and to insure the suc
cess of the work so far as their ef
forts can do so. Clinics held under
this agreement are to he advertised
as conducted under the auspices of
the Minnesota Public Health associa
tion, with the assistance of a nurse,
supplied by the Red Cross.
Other matters concerning the co
ordination of the efforts of the two]
associations were discussed, and a
general understanding of the partic
ular lines of work carried on by each
i was reached.
