Syrett Condemn II stone Appearing In Springfield, Mass., Papers CONCERNING ARSENAL MEN Inspired by One Who Runs Out His String in Davenport and Re turns Home Disgruntled. J. F. Syrett is one of the machinists who came last May from Springfield. Mass., to take a position in the new small arms factory at Rock Island arsenal. Mr. Syrett has a family and is renting a home at 1110 Fourteenth-and-a-half street. Last Tuesday he enrolled his daughter at the local high school. Mr. Syrett has made numerous friends since locating here. He is pleased with his work and with his home and surroundings, and he states that every other one of the Springfield contingent living in this city is, for he has made it a point to converse with each one of them on this subject since the publication of the stories that have been appear ing in the Springfield papers emanat ing ostensibly from men apparently employed in at the arsenal. "I dislike notoriety," Mr. Syrett stated to an Argus reporter, "but 1 cannot refrain from speaking when there is made an attempt to reilect on my family and myself, and embarrass us with our employers ami friends. The statements printed in the Spring field papers alleging that the men who came here from Springfield are dis satisfied are absolute falsehoods, and you are at liberty :o assert over my name that they are inspired by a dis gruntled mechanic who has returned home after having run out his string here. ltlimif IIIm Krirod lit lln nport "This man was boarding in Dav enport. When he went on his two weeks' vacation he soon expended his savings, and then proceeded to bor row from his acquaintances and con tract bills. When it came time for him to go back to work he discovered it would be cheaper for him to move. fo square himself at home and to con ceal the real cause of his failure to remain at the Rock Island arsenal he Hilled the newspapers up with the reports referred to. "As I said before, I am speaking only for those men who are living in Rock Island but I believe it would be safe to assert that those whose homes are in Moline and Davenport, are just as content, and I wish to reiterate that, all are thoroughly happy in their new environment. Wages are higher here than they are in Springfield, and working conditions, if anything, are belter. I have found that, with few ex ceptions, loodstuffs are cheaper here than in Springfield. lime I(--u Well 'I' routed Here. "It is a healthy community to live in. abundance of vegetation, fresh air ami pure water. Your people have been kind to us. We have been made to feel as though we had been here all our lives, bavmg tound a hosniti- ableness among your people that has made it exceedingly easy for us to get along. For one. unless there happens something that I know not of, Rock Island is my permanent home. It is good enough for me. and for any other mortal. Those stories printed in the Springfield papers are the imaginings of a man who is at war wilii hims !f and the whole world. The community ought to be glad to get rid of him.
