ON EFFORTS OF JOHNSON,
HUNT, AND FLYNN
"Every Michigan man in India is
eliveling -the goods," said O. O.

'here as foreign secretary of the in-
rnational committee, he has been at

n, '16, are doing some wonderful
ork in the training camps for the

g a great service on the northwest-
n frontier. Hunt is stationed at
'ebbal camp and for some time has
sen caring for a thousand men and
e government is sending him an-
:her thousand. When I saw him he
as erecting a big hut which he in-
nded to make the social center of
te camp.
"Johnson is in charge of the "Y"
ork at Nilgiris Hill, 6,000 feet above
ie level of the sea. He is at the head
a kind of sanitarium and has 2,000
)nvalescents from East Africa and
esopotamia."
Speaking of the general effect of the
ar upon India, Mr. Stanchfield said,
ndia has been one of the least af-
cted countries in the world. Prices
ave not materially risen, except on
aported goods."
Mr. Stanchfield has been in charge
* the organization of the Y. M. C. A.
ld headquarters and one of the men
ho organized the British territorial
rces at Agra and Poona and other

Nonunion Foreman Problem Is
Matter Not Yet Com-
promised

Only

Chicago, May 2.-The strike of the
bakers is likely to be settled within a
few days. Unofficial overtures from
some of the union leaders were met
yesterday, unofficially, with sympa-
thetic interest by the committee of
bakery. owners.
Plainly the differences between the
two parties have dwindled to a point
where it needs only the forceful ac-
tion of some one in authority to bring
them- together. It may be that Mayor
Thompson will by today have com-
pleted his comparative study of the
two contracts submitted to him on
Monday by the bakers and their em-
ployers. In that case he will doubtless
call them to his office and ask them to
reach a speedy compromise.
In case there is delay at the city
hall there are other agencies i which
may be called in and which probably'
will be able to exert a considerably
stronger influence.
One Vital Difference
So far as the statements credited to
various spokesmen of both sides are
backed by their respective organiza-
tions, there is now only one vital point
of difference between them.
Heretofore the union has permitted
only one nonunion foreman or super-
intendent in a bakery. Where a bak-
ery worked two or three eight-hour
shifts of bakers, that left the plant
under exclusively union control for.
two-thirds of the time.
The employers have demanded in
the new contract that they be allowed
to have a nonunion foreman in charge
of each shift.
Leaders of the union are now quoted
as offering to compromise, but insist-
ing on only one nonunion foreman.
The matter of an increase of $2 a
week in the wages of the bakers has
been conceded by the employers.
On all other questions they are now
represented as being ready to agree.

Rveilley is Champ
in Handball Race
In a stubbornly contested match, J.
Reilley was yesterday returned the
victor over Martin in the final singles
match of the handball tournament.
Reilley started the match with a
rush and took the first two games from
his opponent. The third game went
to Martin who won by the bare mar-
gin of two counters. Martin also won
the fourth game, but in a more decis-
ive way. It looked for a moment as
if this man was going to take the last
game and the match with it, but Reil-
ley came back in this last contest true
to form and easily won, thus clinching
his claim to the title. The winner will
receive a silver cup.
The results of the five games are:
First game, Reilley, 15-13; second
game, Reilley, 15-5; third game, Mar-
tin, 15-13; fourth game, Martin, 15-9; J
fifth game and m atch, Reilley, 15-5.
