HO STRIKE OF TRAINMEN
SAYS PRESIDENT, X.EE
Cleveland, O. "There is not going
to bo a railroad strike don't even
iraaglno It for n mlnuto." With' this
statement, W. 0. Loo, prosident of tho
Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen,
which Is voting on a demand for In
creased wages, registered his faith In
President Wilson's policy.
Mr. Loo was asked whethor ho
thought the President's policy led to a
government dictatorship ovor tho rail
roads. "I wouldn't want to say that It
doesn't," ho replied.
Ho Intimated that tho trainmen will
firmly demand higher wages, "nnd you
. know as well as I that the railroads
won't grant them without Increased
revenues," said he.
This lod to the inforonco that Mr.
Leo expects the deadlock which Pres
ident Wilson spoko of In his letter to
tho chairman of tho United States
Board of Mediation and Conciliation,
when ho montlonod tho "possibility of
being obliged to take unusual meas
ures to oporato the railroads."
Mr. Leo scoutod tho idea' that tho
President might draft tho railroad
employees and force thorn to work at
army wages. "Wo have talked to tho
Prosident about that," he said, but ho
wouldn't state what assurance, If any,
the President gavo. "There Is no. law
for such .action,' said Mr. Leo. "Tho
Government's policy points tho other
way. Tho whole trend has boon to
'raise existing wages of necessary em
ployees when tho government asks
their unstinted co-oporatlon to win tho
LOCAL AND PERSONAL
Have Cause for Thanksgiving'.
The Presbyterians of North Platte
are planning on a big celebration on
Thanksgiving day. Three functions
will bo united in one occasion. In tho
first place there will be a big family
Thanksgiving dinner at one o'clock,
.to which all members of tho church
and congregation' and supporters of
tho church are Invited. This will be
followed by a reception for tho now
minister and his wife, Rev. and Mrs.
Joseph Oarry, and a program of mu
sical and other numbers, during
which the notes and mortgages recent
ly paid off by the Presbyterians, will
1jo burned. The First Presbyterian
church feels that it has Just occasion
for a Thanksgiving celebration be
cause it is now entiroly out of debt,
and has more than two and one-half
thousand dollars on hand to use in
building a new manse.

Buy Christmas Gifts
There's no real good reason for
postponing Christmas buying
until the last minute while on the
other hand there ore many rea
sons for early purchasing.
Logical arguments for early
Christmas shopping are com
pletness and freshness of stocks;
undivided attention of sales
people, the avoiding of congest
ion in the mails and many others.
Last hour shopping is largely a
matter of habit and it's a habit
worth breaking. We're ready
now, with plenty of sensible
gift suggestions for men and boys.
