is surprising at what a small cost,
they make the statement that, "they
make a ten cent piece reach as far
as any sirniliar organization makes
a dollar." and when you stop to con

statement. For example. Adjutant

ing one hundred and twenty-five
girls, is paid a salary of five dollars
a week, she is capable of command
ing a salary of from seventy-five to
one hundred dollars a week in any
hospital. The members of the local
corps of the army receive a salary
of eight dollars a week, the three
dollars over and above Adjutant
Ness is jiid in view of the fact that

RAIL STRIKE CALLED OFF
BY BIG FIVE BROTHERHOOD
CHIEFS AFTER CONFERENCE
WALKOUT SCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30,
STOPPED AT ELEVENTH HOUR MEN
PLEASED AT OUTCOME.
Chicago, Oct. 27. The strike
scheduled for October 30 was avert
ed tonight, when leaders of the
switchmen, trainmen, conductors,
.engineers and firement at a joint
meeting adopted resolutions with
drawing authorization of a walkout
and officials of the railroad telegra
phers' organization announced they
would take sirniliar action. These
were the only unions which had au
thorized a strike.
The vote calling off the strike
was Lee, president of the brother
hood of railroad trainmen, an
nounced. The ollicial wording of the
resolution adopted was that the
"strike be declared not effective."
The vote in the individual unions
was unusually close, however, the
firement particularly holding leng
thy arguments before agreeing to
cancellation of the strike order, the
labor chieftains said. In some of the
groups the ballott was described as
"the closest in history on a sirnil
iar question." The differences were
ironed out by the different unions,
however, and the final showdown
found all of them casting their bal
lots for "no strike."
Why it Was Called OS
L. K. Sheppard, president of the
order of railway conductors, said
that the unions had decided to call
off the strike because "of the grow
ing public opinion that the strike
would be against the labor board,
snd consequently against the gov
ernment, and not against the rail
roads." "It wa. evident also that the en
tire Washington administration was
opposed to us and that we have had
little chance of gaining our objec
tives. " said Mr. Sheppard. "We call
ed this strike to gain certain rights
to which cur men were entitled,"
Mr. Sheppard told the Associated
"It soon became evident, however,
that the roads were succeeding in
their misleading propaganda, to the
effect that we really would be strik
ing against the government.
"This railroad propaganda found
its way to the United States railroad
labor board. This government agen
cy told us that it would look on a
strike as against it and the govern
ment and not against the roads, and
that the full force of the govern
ment would be trough! to bear
against us if we'walkej "but. Under
SHch circumstances there was noth
ing to do but annul our orders for
the October 30 walkout."
L?e Makes Annciinrement
The first announcement of the ex
ecutives action was made by Mr.
Lee. RuhinsT to the floor below the
hotel meeting room where dozens of
newspaper reporters were congre
gated, lie smilingly shouted:
"Tho strike is off. boys, but I've
only got one copy of the resolution
and I'll show that to you tomorrow."
All of the union men were smil
ing as they came out and many of
them jocularly 'pushed and shoved
each other down the stairs. To all
r;uer:es. most of them merely repli
ed: "It's all settled; see you tomor
row." The code message calling off the
strike, arranged in advance, will be
sent out tomorrow morning, the un
ion heads said. A code word will lie
sent to each general chairman of
the unions and he will in turn for
ward the orders to. each of the sub
ordinate officials under him.

man loses three days time each year
from inability to work on account
of having a cold. Much of this loss
can be avoided by treating every
cold as soon as the first symptoms of
the disease appear. Chamberlain's

Union leaders said that the reso
lution adopted by the labor board
announcing that no further wage re

til rules and working conditions for
that group had been settled was
' decidedly instrumental" in bring
ing about the action calling off the
walkout. They declared that they be

would be months before their pay

labor Ecarcl Gratified
The union resolution immediately
was communicated to the labor
hoard and proved particularly grati
fying to Waller MeMenimen, mtm
1 er of the labor group, who was in
strumental in bringing about the
:ettkment of the crisis.
Mr. Mc.Menimc-n. a personal friend
of Mr. Lee, and a former trainman,
paved the way for conferences be
tween the board and union men.
particularly those today, which were
i.ddressed iy Ben Hooper, member
of the public group.
"I r.m immensely gratified," said
Mr. McMeninun, when informed of
the employes' action. ""It takes a.
reat worry off my mind and I am
Mire it wiil be best for all."
Mr. Hooper expressed himself as
"tickled to death" over the cancel
lation of the walkout order.
"I am glad the railroad employes
have taken kucIi wise action," he
raid. "They have taken a step which
they will never regret and which
; ill bring them approval from ev-
ryone in this country. A railroad
.-irike at this time would have brot

that the action of the labor leaders
meant "that. the board's decision on

hoard, the unions and the railroads

ret had been violated in the strike
r.cllvities, wouirj.be decidedly mild."

the unions' that they would "han

they "did' not' call ofT the strike by

REVIVAL IN SENATE
OF THE BONUS BILL
Senator Reed of Missouri Bent on
KaJring Fight For Soldiers by
Keeping Excess Taxes.
Washington, Oct. 28. Another
fight in the senate over the sol
diers' bonus bill was launched to
day by Senator Reed, democrat, Mis
souri, who introduced an amend
ment to the pending tax revision
bill to enact the bonus legislation
which was committed to the finance
committee last July at the request
of President Harding. Sen. Reed's
amendment proposed to raise a spe
cial fund in the treasury depart
ment for expenses of the bonus plan
by continuing excess profits taxes
on corporations at 1921 rates.
Republican leaders characterized
the Reed amendment as "political
play" and predicted the amendment
pre perfectly made.

the republican attitude on taxation

hard fight in its behalf. Republican
spokesmen declared they intended to

Senator Reed sought to call up his
amendment late today, but it went
