Installation of the 'eight-hour shift
in continuous processes in iron and
steel is helping to take up the slack
in employment which has appeared in
the last four or six weeks. At Gary,
South Chicago, Pittsburgh, Youngs-
town and other mil] points, the labor-
supply is proving more abundant than
the companies expected and the change
from the 12-hour day to the 8-hour
turn seems to be progressing faster
than was looked for when the crape was
formally hung on the long day in steel.
The Indiana State Federation of La-
bor, which met in annual convention
in Muneie, is the oldest state organiza-
tion of its kind in the United, States,
according to its president. Thomas N.
A school of printers was recently de-
cided upon by the provincial govern-
ment of Quebec. The new school will
be opened in Montreal as soon as ar-
rangements have been completed to ob-
tain the necessary staff and allow
courses to be given. Newspaper edi-
tors and printing shop owners have
had to contend in recent years with
a shortage of printers, and on several
occasions delegations have waited on
the provincial government to suggest
the creation of practical courses in all
branches of the printing trade.
Up to the present typographical un-
ions have been masters of the trade,
the apprentices being only instructed
under the jurisdiction of those organ-
izations. Coming after the printers’
Taylor. The Indiana federation was
organized 39 years_ago wl^hjegg Uian
5.000 members. The membership in
Indiana now “totals approximately
100,000, and the organization extends
through the state. There are 797 local
unions affiliated with the organization
at the present time, as compared with
22 at the time of its formation.
The rush to the lumber camps of
northern Quebec and Ontario is al-
ready on, about 150 to 200 men leaving
each week, this being about the aver-
age. Wages for lumberjacks run
from $40 to $50 a month, which is an
increase of $10 to $20 a month over
last year. It is understood that over
4.000 men are employed in develop-
men)/ work in the North, and this is
likely to be increased over 5,000 before
reign for Eugene Cnqui of France, a
World war hero, knocked him out in

College Baseball Stars
Are Not Mollycoddles
College graduates playing ball In|he
big leagues aren’t the meek, mild sort
of fellows they used to be when tossed
in with a bunch of hard and seasoned
veterans. The mollycoddle type pic-
tured in the old days is now passe.
Consider the coming into the ma-
jors of Happenny, former University
of Illinois star, and now a member of
the White Sox. Just four days after
Happenny joined the Gleason entour-
age a.t Detroit he was chased out of
the ball yard by Umpire Moriarity. He
was requested to leave for doing too
much talking from the bench. At least
•such was the opinion of ye umps.
In college Happenny hung up many
records in both football and baseball
and he no doubt established another
mark in the majors by being “run out”
ere he had been in the main tent a
week, and without even getting his
name in the box score.
Hitting Merely Matter
of Nerve, Says Wheat
Hitting depends entirely on a play-
er’s nerve, in the opinion of Zack
Wheat, heavy hitting outfielder of the
Brooklyn National league club.
“A player who lacks courage al-
ways can be found well down in the
averages,” says Wheat. “Baseball’s
best hitters, like Ruth, Cobb, Speaker,
Hornsby, Heilmann and Roush, are
both nervy and confident. They know
how to pull themselves out of a bat-
“When I fail to hit I know I am
doing something wrong at the plate
and try to correct the fault. I know
there isn’t anything the matter with
the bat, the ball or tDe umpire. It is
my own fault and no one can make me
jfet back into my stride except old
man Wheat himself.”
