Indianapolis, March 27. As the
leader in the impending nationwide
coal strike, John L. Dewis, president
of the United Miae Workers of Amer

trial conflict. Unless present Indica

largest strike army in 'the history of
the United States for the strike set
for April 1 threatens to call out
more than 500,000 .workers scatter
ed thruout the United States.
Conflicts between employers' and
workers in which Mr. Lewis has
stood out prominently, are these:
The 1919 soft coal strike of 395,
000 miners, which was broken by th
government, after which the miners
got a 24-cent a ton increase in the
wages, their largest single pay ad
..The first attempt, made in 1913

Mr. Lewis having charge- of the field
workers of the American Federatio
of Labor; the movement failed ac
cording to union men because of
The great copper strike In upper
Michigan during 1913, in which Mr
Lewis, as general field agent of th
American Federation of Labor, as
sisited in the general conduct of the
Strike troubles, however, hav
been only a small part of Mr. Lewis'
work within the organized labor
movement. In 1910 at the age of
thirty he was elected a represents
tive of the Illinois union miners, and
in October, 1911. he became gener
al field agent of the American Fed
eration of Labor, resigning in Feb
ruary, 1917, to become statistician
cf the United Mine Workers of
America. On October 25, 1917, he
was elected vice president of the
United Mine Workers, and on Feb
