ing" and "Decoying." ,

modifying the permanent injunction
against the Teamsters' union in re
gard to limiting strike activities.
ITnrtn the mntiot. of Anton RibpIow.
. attorney for the union, the word "un
"lawfi;' is ' innrrtert before the word
. "picketing," and the word "decoying"
.. is stricken froii, the list of acts pro
hibiting the union by the injunction.
The amendment to the injunction is
said 1) attorneys for the unions to
, 'constitute, a victory, as the injunction
may now' be interpreted to prohibit
only unlawful picketing. '
ffcc injunction was the outcome of
the city-wide strike and lockout in
the figut between teamsters and ma
terial men last spring, when building
. activities of Omaha were brought to

Urkin Brothers have moved tn

much larger than first tabulated and
each succeeding hour brings about
thn necessity for a still greater "hur
