Gibson, former Red Cross commissioner for Europe and president- of the Liberty National bank of New York. He got the story from one of the workers in a hospital hut In Dijon. Everybody who has even seen a wounded soldier knows the hag of gaudy cretonne with the little Red Cross in the corner. In which each boy keeps the bit of shrapnel the doctor dug out of his knee, the last letter from home, the picture of his girl, his toothbrush and all his most cherished possessions. One of the boys in the Dijon hospital had Just been presented with his hag, a plnk-and-white one. He accepted It gracefully, then he began to laugh. “Say,” he declared, “if some one had told me two years ago that I’d be a-goln’ to war with a wrist watch on one wrist and a bracelet" —he held out his Identification disk—“on the other and a cretonne bag in my hand! Say, I’d have pasted him one!” Looking for • Telephone. I was looking for a public telephone and thought I would find one in a large office building. I walked through and at last saw a public telephone sign, and as I was in a hurry I rushed through the doors and found myself in the middle of a saloon. The bar tender looked up and said: “What’ll you have, miss?” I was so surprised thut I conld not speak for a few min- 1 utes. but finally said I was looking for a public telephone. As I was hacking out the elevator starter saw me and. as he knew me, asked If I was In for an eye-opener. I then decided my tele phoning could wait and rushed out of the building.—Exchange.

STEEL STRIKE IS CALLED THOUSANDS WALK OUT IN GEN ERAL STRIKE IN STEEL PLANTS. GRIPS THE ENTIRE U. S. GARY, INDIANA, WILL BE THE GENERAL HEADQUARTERS OF STRIKERS. Western N'ennptp«r Union Newi Service. Chicago, Sept. 22. —Steam and oper ating engineers voted to walk out at Gary, Ind., and at Soutli Chicago. Thir ty-nine blast furnaces were affected. One union labor leader declared the steel workers had resources of $30,- 000,000 to draw on to finance them selves through the strike. At Ham mond. W. I*. Lavin, international rep resentative of the electrical workers, declared 3,800 electrical workers had voted to strike with steel workers. It is announced that Gary would be the general headquarters of the strike movement, with John Fitzpatrick, chairman of the national committee, in charge. Chicago.—With men and employers rushing eleventh hour preparations to completion, the great steel strike fell on the Chicago and Calumet districts when hundreds of workers refused to answer the steam blasts calling them to early night shifts. k Officially the strike went Into effect at midnight, but after a day of haranguing and cheer ing of large crowds gathered at meet ings in the various “steel cities” south, east and north of Chicago, hundreds of union men refused to enter the plauts. The situation at Gary, the vortex of the local strike wliirlpool, was typical. More than 0,000 men answered the union call at East Side park to hear the officials of the United States Steel corporation condemned for their re fusal to treat with the workers. Lo cal superintendents, however, declared that the plants would continue to op erate as long as the men came to work. There will lie no fires drawn as long as there are faithful employes to watch them. They derided as mere exaggeration union claims that the plants would be shut down. They es timated the union strength as between 15 and 25 per cent of the workers’ total and promised protection for the tnen who report for work. In secret, the management of the Illinois Steel company, a subsidiary of the United States Steel corporation, made ready to protect their plants. City authori ties and Sheriff Lew Barnes, in whose territory clashes are expected, If any materialize, will throw hundreds of deputies Into Gary. Fifty police will patrol the main street and prevent crowdsjrom accumulating. The strik ers drew considerable satisfaction from the fact that no one reported to Join the ’Citizens’ league,*’ which wus planned us a bulwark ugniust disorder In Gary. Bomb Thrown in Car.
