RAILROAD WORKERS IN
FAVOR OF SIRIKE
From Opening of First Envelope ac
Ballots Were Received by Mail
Indication That Strike Vote
Would Prevail Was Overwhelm
ing, Say Men at Headquarters.
Chicago, Sept. 26 By the Associated
Press.)--Leaders of the big four
brotherhoods affiliated unions tonight
declared they had little doubt that the
railway employees had voted for a
general strike rather than accept a
wage reduction, but announced that
the conservative counsel of the lead
ers might prevail against a walk
From the opening of the first en
velope, it was said, it was clear that
there would be a majority for a
strike. Giving an estimated major
ity, Vice President Murdock of the
"Our past experience has been that
98 per cent. of the men always vote I
Next Monday officials o fthe Broth
erhood of Locomotive Engineers, Or
der of Railway Conductors, Brother
hood of Locomotive Firemen and En
ginemen and Switchmen's Union of
North America will meet here to
count the strike votes of their 259,
Railroad union leaders here expect;
all the brotherhoods and the Switch
men's union to cast substantial ma
jorities for a strike. The affiliated.
shop crafts have already voted, by
a majority of approximately 325,0001
to 48,000 to walk out and are only.
waiting to see what action the otherl
unions will take ar.d for the United
States railroad labor board to dis- I
pose of the pending working rules
Reports of the general chairmen of
the trainment when they assembled
today were plainly disappointing to
the union leaders. The trainmen had
voted on a separate ballot because
their leaders did not approve of the
joint ballot prepared by the other
union. On September 12 President
W. G. Lee addressed a circular let
ter to the men in which he pointed
out five reasons why he thought aI
strike would be unwise at this time
and why the men might expect to
accept some wage reduction.
He asked the men to consider the
fact that wages and working condi
tions of all classes established since
1918 were the result of a world war;
that 5,000,000 men are now unem ploy
ed; that nearly- all classes of labor
have been forced by mediation, arbi
tration, strikes or lockouts to accept
reduced rates of pay during the past
year; that the increased wages grant
ed railroad men last year were
based on increased cost of living and
that government reports indicate a
16 per cent. cut in living costs since
July 1, 1920.
The letter, however, apparently hilas
failed to influence the voting, the
general chairman reported today.
The strike vote, however, union
officials pointed out, does not neces
sarily mean the immediate calling of
a strike. The question as submitted
to the men carries a vote for oI'
against "a strike unless the wage
reduction question can be settled in
a manner satisfactory to the general
grievance committee represent ing'
the class of service in which I am
The grievance committee probably
will meet here as sooii as the vote isi

with the roads or sec a (late for the

question but perimit the committee
to reach its own conclusions.

r'oad~ system whlere the men v'ot e to
strike will lie given authority to call

ENTIERTfAINED LASTl FRIDlAY
MIiss L.ou Hluggins entertainied the
Neighborhood Club l.-st Friday after
noon at the home of Mrs. W. C. D~avis.
Four tables were pilcedl on the porch,
which was beautifully dlecorated in
ferns and pal ms, wvhe re Progressive
Rook was played. A fter the game
Miss Hluggins was assistedl by Mrs. W.
C. Davis in serving a lovely salad
course, with 'ertd tea. These enjoying
this event were: Mesdmimes Jesse
Hluggins, D. M. Bradhamn, Mich Wells,
WV. Scott HI irvin, .Jr., Chias. Geiger,
WV. Scott HI.rvin, Sr., Connor Wells,
S. S. Richardson, Riar Brown, G. K.

Leonora .Johnsaon aind Lou H-uggins.
A lovely home wvedding was that of
Miss Letitia Margaret, Wilson to Mr-.
Paul Eugene Floyd on last Wednesday
afternoon at 5 o'clock. Trhis wvas a
very quiet affair, only the imimediate
family of the bride and groom being
The living room, wvhere the cere
momny was performed was beautifully
dlecoiratedl in feirns and cut flowers.
Just before the ceremon y Mmrs. Ru th
Chandler playedl Nevins' "Love Song''
and during thme ceremony she playedl
"Traumerei." There being no atten
dlants the bridal couple enteredh to
get her and( were amet at an improvised
altar by Rev. C. B. Smith, pastor of
th e Methodist church of this place,
who spoke a very impressive ceremony
using the ring service. Immediately
after the ceremony the hap~py coup~le
left for a motor trip- through the
mnnntntinn of North Cnrolina.
Sunday afternoon, in company with
Messrs. J. T. and C. R. Touchberry,
and "Timmie" Howle "your Uncek
Uub", had the pleasure of attending
Home Branch Baptist Church and we
want to say right here and now, that
instead of most cases when it comes to
a country church, finding a few peo
ple present, and not so much interest
shown we found it altogether differ
ent with the Home Branch poople. We
found quite a large crowd present,
lots of them children, and everybody
seemed charged with love and Zeal
for the growth of the Master's King
dom. And we heard some of the best
singing we have heard in many a (lay,
singing we believe we will say "in the
spirit an( with an understanding.'
Not just a few but almost the entire
congregation. And when we began to
inquire as to who was some of the
leaders, we were told that Rev. Hill
of Paxville, was the beloved pastor, a
man brimfull of energy, with Miss
Hallie Hodge as organist. With
Messrs. Josh and Hampton Lackey,
Louis and Ray Geddings as choir lead
ers, with a number of others who are
able ir-gers, whm ve did not hav
the pleasure of meeting. We found
our good friend Sam Touchberry had
been made superintendent of the Sun
day School, and if we are any judge
of what an eflicient Sunday School
superinte;nient is from what we saw
of Sam on Sund'ay we would put him
in the catagory of efficient Sunday
School workers. Mr. Bonnie Beatson
is president of the Men's Bible Class,
and seems to be -. "live wire." It was
certainly an iiipiration to attend a
church like that of Home Branch. And
the good people of that section need
not be at all surprised to see "Uncle
Nub, pop up there again," in the near
future. And we hope for each of
them, success as they travel down the
railroad of life, and most especially ill
their church work.
There is a movement on foot here
to organize a stock company, with a
capital of something like twenty thou
sand dollars for the purnose of erect
ing a dry kila and planint mill at this
place. We (10 not know how well the
movement will siicced. but we cer
tainly hope the propositon will nater
ialize, as there are several mills run
ning in this section, and most of the
lumber is shipped to the Northerr
markets in the rough, while the dress
ed material is more in demand, and
the price is much better, and the sav
ing in freight alone will go a long
ways in the way of paying for the
machinery. Let's drop the hope of
making cotton and get into something
that will mean money twelve months
in the year.
The good people of the Panola see
tion are to be congratulated on secur
ing as one of their teachers Mrs
Grady Walker, Mrs. Walker has
taught several sessions in the Sum
morton school, and her efficiency as a
teacher is well known, and she was
always much loved by the patrons

some talk of Mr. Cantey going to that

FARMERS CAN GET I
WHEAT SEED AT GOST
The Banvs of Manning Will Furnish i'l
Farmers With Seed at
The First National Bank, The Bank
of Manning and The Home Bank and i
Trust Company advises the farmers si
of Clarendon County to plant this e
fall two acres of wheat to -each work 0
horse or mule on the farm. This will e
greatly relieve the food situation 'n n
this county the coming summer. It q
is not the intention of the banks to get e
the farmers to plant wheat as a comi- t]
mercial crop, but plant enough to
imake flour for each home.
Under boll weevil conditions Clar- S
endon County will prod uce about 10,- a
000 bales of cotton-at 20c per poundl n
would bring approximately $1,000,- it
The people of the county need over
30,000 barrels of flour for their pro- h1
per nutrition and if that much flour )
is bought it will take $10 per barrel e
or $300,000 from your cotton crop C
money which will leave only $700,000 a
to pay for fertilizer, shoes, clothing, g
meats, canned goods, gasoline, oil, 1u- t,
tomobiles, farm machinery ..nd var- S
eus other things that we use in work
mng the cotton crop.h
Now why can't we make enough
wheat to supply the needs of our coun- p
ty and save the $300,000 to spend for
The banks of Manning believe that
the farmers can make enough wheat I
to supply the county and will supply $
the seed at. actual cost to them. Mr.
F. P. Ervin has consenteI to deliver 1
the seed :'nd no profit will be charged 1 $
so we a(lvise our farmers to get in
touch with Mr. Ervin at once so lie 3
will know exactly just what each indi- ,
vi(lual farmer will need.
Smut is the great enemy of wheat I
and it will be necessary for the seed i
to be soaked in a solution of blue;,
stone (sulphate of copper) or Some 3
other fungicide before planting. Mr.
Ervin will be glad to expla in the sev- I
cral metho(s to the fazrmers.
If you make more wheat than will
he consumie(d oa your fari there is
always a market for flour in the sur
roun(l ig towns and at the inills F
where the peolIe .1re not enigage( in
I farming operatio:s.
The Mann:ig banks are to be coi-1$
men(led for this sto-p forward in coin
bating the bi11 v..eevil and the farm- t
ers should take advaita-ge of this of
fer at once. o
