By Ed L. Keen.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
- London, Oct. 0. (By mail.) Organ
ized labor first suggested how to deal
with the labor shortage in munitions in
dustries. In November,. 1914, the Am
algamated Society of Eugineers and
four other unions proposed that firms
engaged on private work be given gov
ernment work: firms workiue short
time, transfer surplus labor to busier!
centers, sKUleu workmen be brought
from Canada and Australia; skilled
men who had enlisted be brought back
from the trenches.
, This then appealed nor to the gov
ernment or to the employer. Six
months later, after the spring offensive
in Flanders failed through lack of mu
nitions, it was adopted. - -
Following this expose of the empire's
grave danger, all the skilled labor un
ions in the United Kingdom agreed,
during the war, to allow unskilled work
ers to use lathes and other machines,
permitted women in munitions work,
withdrew opposition to the premium
bonus system and agreed not to restrict
or hamper the output.
Bight after this Lloyd George said
the reul cause of the munitions short
age was drink. He abandoned this
later when he saw that the facts were
against him, but much mischief had
been done. The British masses are not
thick-skinned. Their feelings were
hurt. ,To be called drunkards just aft
er what they had done was discourag
ing Next came the munitions act. Early
in tho year labor suspected that Lloyd
George and the government desired in
dustrial conscription. The government
had refused to deal with the increased
living cost, increased profits, or the
claims of the Inbor that, the war ought
rot to be a means of labor exploitation
by capital.
The munitions act provided prohibi
tion of strikes; government control of
certain establishments, now nearly
1,000; guaranteed employers in con
trolled establishments the average of
profits for the last two years plus one
fifth extra, nnd allowances for capital
expenditure; suspended nil trade union
regulations in controlled establishments
and subjected workers to heavy fines
tor striKing, aeerensing output, or go
ing to work elsewhere.

Suffering Drives Bandog t
' Merchant to Suicide
Portland, Or., Nov. 24. After weeks
of suffering from cuncer of tho face
which prevented him from sleeping or
eating, James lartwright, a pioneer
merchant, of Bandon, Oregon, shot and
killed himself at the Good Samaritan
hospital last uiuht. The body, a bul
let hole in the head, was found by an
orderly today.
Before being taken to the hospital
two weeks ago Cnrtwright was an in
mate of the Odd Fellows Home.
Many workers felt that this was a
form of slavery. They would have pre
ferred the munitions factories nation
alized and the workers responsible in
conjunction with the state for disci
pline and output. There would have
been less dissatisfaction had the act
been scrupulously observed by employ
ers and sympathetically administered
by the government. A fow instances:
Armstrong & Whitworth, Openshaw,
dismissed 150 Steel Smelters' onion
men, refusing them certificates re
quired by the munitions act before
they could get other work.
At Sheffield a worker asked the lo
cal munitions tribunal's permission to
take a position closer to where his wife,
almost at death's door, resided. Per
mission was refused. Fourteen Man
chester workmen, summoned for contra
vening the strike clause of the act,
proved that the government had not
acquainted them with the act's pro
visions and that their employers were
not engaged exclusively upon govern
ment work. They were fined.
In defense of the biggest strike since
the act went into effect, when 1,500
Thorneycrof t 's shipbuilding yard work
ers at Southampton downed tools be
cause of tho introduction of non-union
labor, labor says the employers them
selves first violated the act's provision
that !'due notice shall be given work
men of any change of working condi
tions desired nnd opportunity for local
consultation with the workmen or their
representatives shall be given, if de
sired." This, they say, was the real
cause of the strike.
Leaders of labor in Great Britain
contend thnt the workers still are as
wholeheartedly in favor of the war as
when it started. But, they say: Ex
ploitation continues; the government's
attitude toward increased living cost
and increased profits of employers still
is unsatisfactory, to labor.
That the administration of tho mu
nitions act is constantly embittering
relations between the government and
labor; and that labor feels that its sac
rifices in lives, in trade union rights,
and material prosperity have fur ex
ceeded those of the classes.
Despito these things, labor has now
promised to recruit 20,000 men a week,
and to try to make it 30,000!
