Veterans of Foreign Wars
Plan Many Activities For
the Near Future
- Captain Howard L. Calder Post, No.
31, at its regular meeting last eve
ning obligated a large class of new
members, which makes the member
ship well over the thousand mark
for the local post. Owing to the rap
id growth, the post is compelled to
look for larger quarters with social
rooms which will be open at all times
to its members.
The post is also planning many so
cial events for the coming winter,
among which will be their annual
military ball, which will be held
sometime in November or December.
Information received by the Post is
to the effect that General John J.
Pershing, charter member of Dawton
Post, No. 27, Manilla, P. 1., and Com
mander-in-Chief of the A. E. F., was
voted an honorary Commander-in-
Chief of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars. General Pershing has been a
member of this organization for
about twenty years.
"The impression of some people that
the Veterans of Foreign Wars dis
criminate, in that they do not take
into their organization other than
foreign service men is wrong," a
statement by the Post says. "Should
we alter our constitution, our princi
ples would be thrown to the 'four
winds.' We are comrades whose in
terests are identical, and whom our
Government has seen fit to especially
recognize. We are not antagonistic
to other organizations whose prin
ciples are purely patriotic.
"Our organization teaches loyalty
to our country first, last and all the
time, there can be no slackers or pa
cifists among us."

Presenting Corporation's Side in Probe, He Declares U. S.
Cannot Keep Up in Race With World; Means
Dropping of Production, He Says
By .4 ssociatcd Press.
Washington, Oct. 2.—lf unions
control industries in the United
States "it means decay and the drop
ping of production," Judge Elbert
H. Gary, chairman of the board of
the United States Steel Corporation,
declared in presenting the corpora
tion's side of the steel strike to the
Senate investigating committee. ,
"It means this country can not
keep up in the race with the world,"
said Mr. Gary. "It means the con
dition I fc/ir England is in to-day."
Open Shop Big Issue
Reiterating that the "open shop"
was the big issue in the present
strike, Judge Gary declared that it
was "the opinion of the world that
open shops mean more production,
better methods and more prosperity,
and that closed shops mean lower
production and less prosperity.
"Here were these men," said Gary,
referring to the steel workers' na
tional committee, "starting out, not
for better pay, for better conditions
—we'd never heard of their 12 points
but to get control of this indus
try. And what that means, I think
you know."
Referring to testimony of Presi
dent Gompers, of the American Fed
eration of Labor, that Jefferson D.
Pierce, a union organizer, had been
beaten by company agents while at
tempting to organize unions in the
steel mills and died from injuries,
Judge Gary read an affidavit which
he said had been sent to his office
on September 27 by Pierce's son.
Withholds Telegrams
Judge Gary declined to disclose
the contents of messages sent him
by President Wilson in an effort to
avert the steel strike. He said he
did not regard it as proper for him
to make the communication public,
but Chairman Kenyon asked him to
think over his refusal while the
committee was in recess for lunch.
The present average wage of un
skilled laborers of the corporation,
the witness said, is $5 per day and
Of the skilled $6.70,
"Under the open shop practice,"
be said, "the man is treated accord
ing to his merits."
Judge Gary said 68,284 of the cor
poration's employes worked a 12-
hour day; 198,882 a ten-hour day
and 99,850 average an eight-hour
The witness said the general ave
rage of wages in manufacturing
plants of the corporation was $2,93
in 1914, and $6.27 in 1919. In the
coal and coke works the average in
1914 was $2.74 and in 1919, $5.20;
in the iron ore works, the averages
were $2.75 and $5.70; while in the
corporation's shipbuilding yards, this
year, the average was $5.53. In
transportation work of the corpora
tion, he said, the 1914 rate was
$2.71, against $5.02 this year. Mis
cellaneous employes received $2.26
in 1914 and $4.48 this year.

tor of the Port Royal Lutheran

Cost of Elections
High in France
Paris, Oct. 2. The cost of elec
tions is expected to be about three

elected and it is predicted that the
average expenses of each will be
50,000 francs.
