DRAFTING TRE WORKERS
The great strikes at the various
shipyards has caused the govern­
ment to consider the necessity
o f taking charge and operating
under the supervision o f the
government. It is also urged by
certain interests, that workers
be drafted as soldiers are. This,
o f course, would mean enforced
service at terms which the offi­
cials might determine.
The
strike question is a serious one.

performed by skilled, and satis­
fied workers, and it is doubtful
if such methods will accomplish
the desired end.

When tempted to put the results o f your savings,
which represents days, weeks, or even years o f
labor, into some questionable enterprise, remem­
ber this:
It is better to get four per cent, regularly with
the principal always yours, than to get perhaps
seven per cent, this year and probably no princi­
ple for the rest o f the time.
Four per cent, and Safe is the Safe Course to fol-
