Radio Amateurs May
Make Stranded Wire
Many radio fans have at times
wanted sonic .stranded wire in a
hurry, and possibly have felt that
they would have liked to save the
cash involved in its purchase, if the
time element were not important.
A neat, smooth stranded wire, excel
lent for your antenna or other pur
poses where .stranded wire is superior,
can be easily made at home.
Put a number of wires together, all
of the same length, and fasten one
end to a nail or book on the wall,
then place the other end in the
chuck of your hand drill, making
sure that they are all even. Stand
back far enough to pull the wires
taut, not too tight, then turn the
crank of the drill slowly until the
wires are twisted into one. By using
cotton covered wire you can make a
neat power cable. Several strands of
wire from the secondary of a spark
coil makes a neat wire for winding
variometers and other regenerative

Illinois Central Railroad Co.
To AH Illinois Central System Shopmen: Chicago, 111., July 10, 1922.
On June 14th I addressed a communication to you in which I appealed to
you to cast your vote against the proposed strike. Since that time the strike
has been called. by your leaders, and some of you have left your positions, while
others "have remained steadfast. I feel that the time has arrived when I should
make clear to those of you who have left your positions, as well as those of you
who have remained, the position of the Illinois Central System with reference
to thi3 entire matter.
In my letter to you of June 14th I enumerated the three things which your
leaders proposed to have you strike against; namely, (1) contracting of shop
plants to outsiders, (2) the order of the United States Railroad Labor Board re
lating to rules and working conditions and (3) the order of the United States
Railroad Labor Board establishing rates of pay effective July 1.
The question of contracting shops to outsiders is not a part of the contro
versy so far as you and the management of the Illinois Central System are con
cerned, because this railway system has not contracted any of its shops to out
siders. The questions involved in the matter of rules and working conditions
and the order establishing rates of pay effective July 1 are the only ones at
isfMe. Thev are not questions between you and the Illinois Central System man
agement. They were decided by the United States Railroad Labor Board and
those of you who are out on strike are striking against lawful decisions of a
branch of the United States Government.
It goes without saying that the public welfare cannot permit the revoca
tion of a decision of a governmental age ncy under a threat of the use of force.
No patriotic citizen would expect such a thing to be done, or would have it done.
We believe that we have the best gove rnment in the world, but you will all
agree with me that it would not long so remain if its institutions could be oyer
ridden and set aside in the manner sou ght by those who are contending against
the lawful decisions of the United States Railroad Labor Board.
The management of the Illinois Central System believes that those of you
who are out on strike have been misled. It bears no feeling of hostility toward
those who left its service. To those who have remained loyal it acknowledges
a debt of gratitude. It feels that it has a valuable asset in its old employes, and
it is eager to hold them together. It b elieves that, if those of you who are out
will calmly analyze the issues upon which you are striking your better judg
ment will assert itself and you will return to your positions. I sincerely invite
you to return. Moreover, I earnestly advise you to pursue that course.
Those who report for duty not later than 11:59 P. M. Monday, July 17,
1922, mav do so with the resumption of full seniority and pension rights and
will be treated as if their services had been continuous. Those returning after
that time, if accepted, will rank as new employes.
I trust that those of you who are out will consider this matter seriously and
that your action, whatever it may be, will turn out to be for your own best inter
ests, as well as the best interests of your families and those dependent upon you
for a living.
I ask those of you who are striking to bear in mind that you accepted the
decisions of the United' States Railroad Labor Board when they were favorable
to you, and that the Illinois Central System accepted those decisions which were
unfavorable to it. Let me also again remind you that since December, 1917,
you have received "three general increases in wages and that your hourly rates
of wages in effect at present, as fixed by the United States Railroad Labor
Board, are from 40 to 113 per cent higher than in 1917, as follows:
July. 1922 1917 Increases
Hourly Rate Hourly Rate Over 1917
Machinists, Boilermakers and Blacksmiths 70c 50c 40
Helpers, various classes 47c 29 c to 32 45 to 59
Coach Carpenters 70c 40c 75
Freight Car Carpenters v 63c 35c 77
Car Repairmen 63c 29 2c 113
Upon reflection, I believe that you will be broad-minded enough to accept
the recent decisions of the United States Railroad Labor Board which you con
sider unfavorable. A long-drawn-out contest would mean losses and suffering,
not only for you and your families, but also for the public. We should all recog
nize that the public interest always rises above the interests of the railroad or of
its employes.
t None, of us is fortunate enough to have issues affecting his life always de
cided in his favor. The principle of "rule or ruin" invariably has led to dis
aster. It can have no other ending. The wisdom of the principles of give and
take" and "live and let live" have been fully demonstrated. Those are the prin
ciples upon which we desire to conduct this railway system for the benefit of the
public, the employes and the owners.
The management of the Illinois Central System is under obligations
to serve the public with uninterrupted transportation and under any conditions
which may arise it must faithfully discharge that obligation.
I ask that you accept this letter in that same friendly spirit in which I ad
dress you, free from any feeling of hostility or censure for anything that has
been said or done in regard to this unhappy affair.
