Then they stopped up the cracks and crannies about the room, turned on the gas and lay down upon their bed. were found this morning, the husband dead, the wile dying. T, I There were many things that Must Be Met by Burleson; made life hard for them. Foster Conference is Held in East A strike all telephone em- ployee's on thevPacific Coast affiliated with the International Brotherhood ofr Electrical Workers has been called for 8 a. m., Monday, by In- ternational- Yice-President C. Crasser of Fruitvale, on telegraphic advices from the east, at a confer- ence with seventy-five delegates from -the Pacific Coast locals of the union. Fifteen women delegates from the operators' locals oC Pacific Coast cities were present and signified their intention of ordering 'the girls out if the demands of the men for a basic scale of a day. retroactive as of January 1 last, -nas not com- plied with. PROPOSED "This is not a local situation, or one which concerns only the Pacific Crasser said, "but is a coun- trywide strike unless our demands are met. We are preparing to battle the United States government, and was GG years old. Some time ago he hurt his leg and lias had but a limited use of it since then. Yet he had to make a living some- how for himself and his wife, and nobody seemed to want a man G6 years old with a crippled leg. Nor could Mrs. Foster help to earn the living, much as she want- ed to do so. She was 6-1 years old, a paralytic, hardly able to keep their one room tidy or cook their meager meals. WIPE'S HARDEST TASK TO KEEP UP CHEER Mrs. Foster's chief task in the partnership was to keep up their goo'd cheer. Mrs. Mary Frisbie says so, and. living in the same house as her tenants, Mrs. Frisbie could keep an eye on them. She sajs Mrs. Foster never was without a smile, hard as things were for her. The husband was more given to moodmess, especially when he hobbled home in the late afternoon after a fruitless quest for employment. Mrs. Nash, their daughtei, also says her mother was always tho cheerful one. have for that purpose our first as-1 These two think it strange sessment -which totals nearly 000, more money than has ever been thrown into a strike that I know of.

O'Connor, local president of the Commercial Telegraphers' Union, attended the meeting and asked for the support ot the elec- trical -workers in the telegraphers' strike. He was enthusiastically re- and International Organizer U. C. Robbing, speaking for the elec- trical Vorkers, assured him of the moral and physical support of his order. PICKETS PLAX TO PHOTOGRAPH WORKERS Plans to earn' on the strike were made, and these included recorrj- mendations for pickets to be armed Foster should have that gone willingly to death. But all of the circumstances show she did. Mrs. Nash and another sister came west from Denver a week ago with their father and mother. All of the family have been in rather straitened circumstances, but the children were looking out for the old folks as well as they could. This never suited Foster: he was of the independent kind, and he preferred to earn his own living and his wife's, too. He often said he did not want to "sponge off of his children or anybody else." DAUGHTER OP COUPLE DISCOVERS BODIES t It was Mrs. Xash that found them this morning. Their bring- ing the canary bird over to her last night did not arouse her sus- picions: they offered some plausi- ble reason for so doing. Her er- rand this morning was to ask them to her house for breakfast. There was no answer from within when she knocked upon their door, and the lock withstood her pressure as she turned the knob. She called Mrs. Frisbie and the two women finally forced the door open. The cloud of gas that rolled out upon them told part of the story. They threw open the win- dows and turned off the two jets that were still emitting the poison fumes into the room. Husband and wife lay side by side on the bed. They were EO still Mrs. NdSh that sit tirst both were dead. She hurriedlv called a doctor, who found Mrs Foster still breathing.
