NUMBER 207 Obey the Says Mr. lew MINE AVORKERS DECIDE AT 10 O'CLOCKTODAY TO OBEY MANDATE OF THE FEDERAL COURT CALL OFF THE NATION-WIDE COAL STRIKE. HELL By the Associated INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. .order calling off the nation-wide bituminous coal strike, was to be issued to- day, following the decision of the general committee of the United Mine Workers of America early this morn- ing to obey the mandate of United States Judge A. B. Anderson, issued here last Saturday. The general com- mittee composed of International officers, district presi- dents and members of the executive board reached its decision at o'clock this afternoon. "Gentlemen, we will comply with the mandate of the court. We do it under protest We are Americans. We cannot fight our government. That is all." This was the statement of John L. Lewis, acting- president of the Mine Workers, announcing the decision, and other members of the conference apparently worn out by their long hours of discussion, declined to add to their chief and soon dispersed. The general committee 'had been in session since shortly after 10 o'clock yesterday morning, taking only a brief period for lunch and dinner. The proceedings were interrupted during the afternoon session by the appearance of United States Marshal Mark Storn, and his deputies who served thirty-three of the officials with copies of the temporary injunction issued Saturday and returnable December 1. The recall of the strike order wall open the way im- mediately for a resumption of the negotiations between miners -and operators, as the operators have announced they would be ready to consider a new wage agreement any time the strike order was withdrawn. It is also understood that the matter of arbitration entered largely into the discussion in the final decision of the meeting, but the miners' and operators' opinion on this was not announced. The question of just how many of the coal diggers would obey the order, calling off the strike, was prob- lematical today.

"All night long ihe Germans concentrated their artillery on a hill where we were located and swept from side to side and from the bottom to the top. We dodged from shell hole to shell hole, with the pieces of shrapnel and high ex- plosive screaming through the air. Often as I lay in a shallow hole with part of my body showing above the level of the ground, a shell would pass so near that I cold feel the heat from it, like the breath from a furnace door. The explosion of the shell would lift me from the ground and I would be partly buried by the falling stocks, stones and debris." "My and here a 'soft, ed during the last Tew minuces or hours.

Runners were at once sent to all the guns with instructions to cease fir- ing a few minutes before 11 o'clock. At the time, the former sergeant added, they were being heavily shell- ed by enemy artillery.

Why Advertised Institutions Succeed When a store advertises judicip'usly, it attracts pub- lic attention and it increases its business. But the in- crease of receipts is not usually equaled, by a correspond- ing increase of expense. Most stores could double their business without doubling the number of clerks, or doubling their rent, light, heat, and other charges. Consequently the charge per-article for this so-called "overhead" expense, keeps decreasing as the business grows. If receipts double, and costs of doing business increase only 50 per cent, it is manifest that the over- head cost for each article sold is proportionately less. As volume of business increases, the business is more economically done, and the cost of moving each separate article is reduced. The public gets the difference in lower prices.
