Over 6,000 Workers Out On
Strike In Protest Of A
Wafe Cut
Estimated 3,000 Workers
PPf Hive Found Employment
In Other Lines of Work
(By The Associated Press)
CINCINNATI, O., Aug. 24 Tho
strike of 6000 boot and Bhoa workers
in Cincinnati against a 10 percent
reduction in wages finished its eighth
week, with both sides In tho contro
versy apparently holding Arm.
Government conciliators from Wash
. lngton have made several futile at
tempts to bring about, a settlement,
but leaders on both sides announco
that no progress has been made.
The only break In the ranks of tho
sixteen manufacturing plants belong
ing to the Cincinnati Boot and Shoo
Manufacturers' Association, was the
signing of a separate agreement with
tho workers of tho Sam B. Wolf com
Ipany, and the Feder-Gregg Shoo com
pany restoring jto the workers their
, former wage scale, according to the
union leaders. tb
It is estimated in well Informed
quarters that some 3000 workers eith
er have secured employment in other
lines of wQrk In Cincinnati, or have
left for other shoe manufacturing cen
tors. . Strike benefits are being paid
by tho international union to approxi
mately 3000 workers, each union' mem
bor receiving 5 a week.
The strike was called when the man
ufacturers announced a 10 percent ra-
duction-ln wages -at. tho explratlonuot,
tneir worxing agreement wun me un
ion. in making the reduction, tho
manufacturers contended that wages
must come down in order that they
might meet competition of other shoe
manufacturing .centers, which had cut
wages. The union contended that the
wages of their ".members were not in
creased during the war fn proportion
to those in other shoe manufacturing
centers, and that tho manufacturers
had promised 'that if wages were hot
increased during the war to the high
peak reached olsowhere, they would
not bo cut when tho readjustment per
iod came.
AH factories have reopened, and
tho shoo manufacturers association
announce the factories are running
with about 1200 employes. Schools of
instruction have been inaugurated
where new employes are being trained
to take 'the places of strikers. Strik
ers maintain tho factories are not
operating to an extent sufficient to
break tho strike.
Court injunctions have beon issued

CINClNNATI.Aug. 24 To correct
erroneous Information that has been
given the public regarding the time
limit when compensation claims may
be filed by former service men under
the war risk Insurance act, W. M.
Coffin of Cincinnati, district manager
of the U. S. Veterans Bureau, for dis
trict No. 7, has made a full and com
plete explanation ot the limitations
based on information from the central
office at Washington.
In somo instances, Mr. Coffin said,
soldier organizations havo circular
ized all former service men stating
that unless they filed their claims for
compensation by Aug. 9 of this year,
their compensable rights under the
act would be outlawed.
Tho proper interpretation of the
law, Mr. Coffin pointed out, is that a
compensation claim for a disability
which existed at tho time of discharge
may be filed at any time within five
years from the date ot discharge. A
vast majority of compensation claims,
he said, are of this character. If the
claim is for a disability which occur
red subsequent to discharge from the
military service, it must bo filed with
in five years from tho beginning- of
such disability.
The vast majority of former senico
mon, Mr. Coffin declared, It they be
lieve they havo any sort of suspected
injury or disease duo to their service,
therefore should havo filed claims for
a certificate of injury prior to Aug. 9
Tho date Aug. 9 was Important,
Coffin said, becauso many claimants
will not be able to secure a certificate
ot injury after that date, but, he point
ed out, this docs not mean that all
who file claims after Aug. 9 must
have certificates ot disability in or
der that their claims may receive at
tention. The district manager also says it is
important to note that it a soldlor
died during his military service and
his wife, child or other dependents
want to claim compensation, they
must file their application within Ave
years after death, if officially report
ed to the military authorities.

Football is stretching his padded
limbs, heaving his shoulders, and get
ting ready to rouse out of his summer

lege, whose opening Big Ten gama
will be played in th new $1,000,000,

actual practice for the 1922 season
willistarL Western Conference rules
provide that football practice starts
two weeks before school opens; class
es start at Statu October 2.
However, even though tho grid seai
son still is in, the futuro, members ot
the State football team right now are
getting ready for their fall campaign.,
Tho season started for 100 athletes
of the University the moment each
peruses a copy of the round-robin let
ter Dr. J. W. Wilce mailed them from
his vacation retreat at Otsego Lake,
Mich., a week ago.
Smoking and cold drinks are under
the ban, henceforward. On tho other
hand, plenty of sleep and wholesome
food are prescribed -Beginning Sept-
1, dally periods of setting up drill are
encouraged. Athletes who have had.
a summer of tossing bricks, Juggling
pig iron, or similar strenuous occupa
tions, are advised to moderate. .
Nor does Dr. Wilce overlook the
mental side of getting down to busi
ness. In making subtle allusion to
what he regards as a few of the sal
ient aspects of the impending cam.
paign afield, the Buckeye strategist
recalls the penalty exacted by Oberlln
last year for failure of tho Bucks ta
achieve a "flying start." He alBO calls
attention to the height ot some of the
hurdles that are set up for the 1922
obstacle race in the fornfof tho West
ern Conference games with Michigan,
Minnesota, Chicago, Iowa, and Illinois.
In conclusion, the Ohio State mentor
challenges every candidate to a "100
