Contractors, However, May
Anticipate Hove by Effect
,ing a Lockout.
ELECTRICIANS IN COUET
OMAHA LAD JOINS MARINES
AND WHITES ABOUT IT.
With die strikers in some of the
building trades in Omaha talking of
calling a general strike in all of the
building trades for May 1, and the
contractors at the same time talking
of instituting a general lockout on
that date, prospects just now are
that building activities will be tied
up after the first of the month.
While all operations and plans are
veiled in the greatest secrecy, it is
known that the contractors have been
holding frequent meetings and that a
lockout has been tentatively agreed
upon s plan to attempt to force
the strikers in tome of the building
trades to Com back to work under
the old conditions.
General-Strike May Result.
At the same time the union men
are talking of bringing about a gen
eral walkout 'if the temporary injunc
tion now standing against the Elec
trical Workers' union No. 22 in Oma
ha is made permanent. The hearing
in Judge Leslie's court is set for to
morrow, April 26. If the injunction
is made permanent the union men say
they will interpret this as putting the
jobs mentioned in the injunction un
der police protection. The rules of
the international unions in the build
ing trades are- that no one craft may
ri-main nn a buildins iob which has
' been put under police protection by
. the courts.
The' temoorarv injunction now
standing against the electrical work
ers' union restrains its members from
interfering with nonunion men who

Railroads Have Task to
Find Men to Do Work
Two dollars a day for working on
the section-is the wages that railroads
are paying their men, or at least would
pay them if there were those who
would take the jobs.
Last year section men were paid
$1.75 per day. Early this spring the
wages were advanced to $1.85 and
Monday they were jumped to $2.
Even at these wages the railroad of
ficials assert that men will not work.
' On the streets of the cities and in
the larger towns railroad officials as
sert that there are targe numbers of
idle men, who apparently arc seeking
work, but when approached with
propositions to accept employment
' they are found to be looking for easy
work, where the wages are high and
. little to do.

GOOD CHANCE FOB BOYS
Farmers are taking a lively interest
in the efforts of the Live Stock ex

for the soming summer; in fact, more
applications are coming in for men
than the exchange can fill. The pros
pects for school boys to spend the
summer on the farms are better than
' A. F. Stryker, secretary of the ex
change, has received many requests
from . good strong, husky lads for
places on the farms. "These boys
don't know a lot about farming, but
what they lack in knowledge they
make up in willingness to do any kind
of work and they vill faithfully dis
charge any duties assigned them,"
said Mr. Stryker. "The farmers will
do well if they give the boys a place;
they will be valuable long before the
crops are harvested; incidentally it
will be the means of giving many a
worthy boy a chance to go to school
next year. Co-operation of this kind
is the spirit that impelled the ex
change to install he free labor bu
reau in order to secure the greatest
crop this year that the world 'has ever
known, and we'll get it, too."

Use Cocoamit Oil
' For Washing Hair
If you. want 'to keep your hair in
good .condition, be careful what yon
wash it with, v.
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too. much alkali. This dries
the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and
is very harmful. Just plain mulsified
"cocoanut oil (which is pure and en
tirely greascless) is much better than
the most expensive soap or anything
else you can use for shampooing, as
this can't possibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with
water and nib it in. One or two tea
spoonfuls will make an abundance of
rich, creamy lather, and cleanses the
hair and scalp thoroughly. The lather
rinses out easily, and removes every
particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and ex
cessive; oil. The hair dries quickly
and evenly, and it leaves it fine and
silky, bright, fluffy and easy to man
age. You can get mulsified cocoanut oil
at most any drug store. It is very
cheap, and a few ounces is enough to
last everyone in the family for
