As One Labor Leader: Put it Muncie

Is the Strongest Union Labor Town

In the World.


It is everywhere known that Muncie is one of the strongest union Labor places in the world. Very few of its factories are non-union. Nearly all the trades are organized and in fact hardily anything but "union labor goes here." The labor situation in Muncie was probably correctly summed up last summer by Dennis A. Hayes, president of the Green Glass Workers' Association of the United States and Canada as follows: "Muncie to the best of my knowledge is the best and strongest union labor town or places in the world and I have traveled a little you know at that." This is the reason why it is proper that the convention should be held here. The officers of the Trades Council and the names of the president, secretary, and delegates of each local are as follows:

 

TRADES COUNCIL OFFICERS.

President, John Buettner; vice-president, Lon Van Camp; recording secretary, Leonard Paris; financial secretary, George Derrick; treasurer, D. Taylor; sergeant, M. Schesky.
