Much of today’s paper was ruined by the dreadful mutt from next door, but I did manage to read part of the inside.

Three hundred underclassmen assembled on John street late last night and “settled their various difficulties, principally with noise. No bloodshed ensued and beyond the howling of some 300 discordant voices, the beating of tin pans and firing of blank cartridges, no damage was done.”

The twenty-four-hour textile mill strike called in Lawrence, Massachusetts, by the Wobblies has ended. The strike, which involved some twelve thousand workers, was a protest against the imprisonment of Ettor and Giovanni, leaders of the strike earlier this year.
