THE OMAHA' SUNDAY. BEE: JUNE 15, 1919.
ICE WAGON MEN
WILL VOTE TODAY
ON STRIKE ISSUE
May Walk Out in Sympathy
With Teamsters and Truck
men; One Marl Assaulted;
Milk Wagon Overturned.
A meeting to decide what action
should be taken by the drivers of
ice trucks and wagons in the team
sters' and truck drivers' strike will
bejheld at the teamsters' hall at 11
o'clock this morning. It is prob
able, according to union officials,
that these men will decide to strike
to enforce the demands made by
other truck drivers and teamsters
although they are at present receiv-

We can tell you
the whole story
in a few words:

If you. want to

neighbors - they

ing higher wages than ts being de
manded by the union. -
If strike action should be decided
upon but little ice would be de
livered anywhere in the city, union
officials stated. The men have not
been called out heretofore, say union
leaders, because the strikers did not
wish to inflict any unnecessary hard
shin on the people of Omaha.1
Refusal on the part of the princi
pal firms involved in the walkout to
meet committees of the strikers has
forced the union heads to take this
step, it is said.
Transfer Driver Assaulted.
For the first time since the incen
tion of the teamsters' strike four
days ago force has been resorted to
by the strikers in an effort to end
the -deadlock resulting from the re
fusal of the principal employers af
fected by the strike to confer with a
committee of the men who walked
out. because of their belief that the
men are contending for a "closed
L, R. Fere, Neville hotel, a driver
for the American Transfer Co., as
assaulted and badly beaten yesterday
by two men believed, by police of
ficials to have been strikers.
An Alamito Dairy Co. delivery
wagon was overturned and the
greater portion of its contents de
stroyed at Twenty-fourth and Paul
streets early yesterday. While
the driver of the milk wagon was
away making a delivery a gang of
men was seen to approach .the
wagon, free the horse, and then
oveturn the vehicle.
Denied by Strikers
Knowledge of both acts is vehem
ently disclaimed by the strikers. Of
ficial - orders advising the strikers
against the use of force have been
placed about the Teamster's hall, the
union headquarters. ; John Devering,
international organizer, and Robert
Vaughn, chairman of the strikers'
conference committee, declared yes
terday that the use of force would
not be countenanced and any striker
found guilty of acts of violence
would be summarily dealt with.
!'VVe can easily win this strike by
peaceable methods" they said.-
The assault on Fere is said to have
occurred on Twelfth street between
Harney, and Farnam streets, .after
he had expressed a determination to
two men to continue to operate his
truck during the strike. His injur
ies were attended by the police
His assailants have not been ap
prehended. ' ' ! - ,'$'..
Both factions involved in the strike
of the teamsters and truck drivers
claimed . gains yesterday. Heads
of the various affected companies
declared yesterday that the sit
uation was rapidly returning to nor
mal. ; Many concerns, it was said,
are operating with a full force and
are not at all hampered.
v Say 1,200 Still Out.
Despite the fact that from 600 to
700 men have returned to work fol
lowing concessions made, them Iy
more than 300 firms, 1,200 men are
still out, stattd union officials. This
is explained, by the fact that more
than 600 men have joined the ranks
of the strikers since Wednesday
last; . - .- ; -y
Fred Hoye, city building inspec
tor, made the statement that unless
an agreement was reached in a short
time building operations would be
at a standstill by this week. Those
jobs adjacent to railroads could con
tinue operations, as they received
their building material by way of
the railroads. '
Officials of the Sunderland Bros,
company declared that all the neces
sary building material was being
transported without any difficulty.
No action has been taken by eith
er the city or state officials to bring
the two factions together.

TO RAISE FUNDS
Teams to Canvass Territory in
Effort to Save College;
Need at Least
Omaha would have, cause to re
gret the discontinuance of Bellevue
college as a coeducational institu
tion, is the serious opinion of Dr.
Edgar P. Hill, secretary of the
Presbyterian college board, who has
made a study of college institutions,
after a survey of the grounds and
plant Saturday morning. One of
the great natural beauties of this
growing city, as Dr. Hill saw it, was
the beautiful drive along the boule
vard from the South Side to Belle
vue. Bellevue college will not be dis
continued if those who are inter
ested will support it fey the extent
of $10,000 within the next few weeks.
Action was taken in this matter at
the meeting of the executive com
mittee at the University club Sat
urday noon. With this sum in reli
able pledges the trustees will feel
justified in maintaining the school in
its present form on a reorganized
and sound financial basis.' ' ,
Teams are being formed to re
sent out in Nebraska and the ad
joining territory Monday to present
the matter to every one interested
in the institution. John Frazier of
Bellevue is the man on the ground
who will receive ' any communica
tions from persons not Otherwise
reached. ' ,

the acre, a crop without parallel in
the history of the wheat belt To
harvest and thresh this immense
crop it will, take the vast army of
workers from two to three months.
