You real quaint sentiments. THEN THE gaveled the meeting to order. Pro looked squarely at the opposition and said they did not have the membership interest at with all this by-law change stuff. And that they were politically motivated. Then one of the opposition George tried to put each amendment on the floor. The chairman ruled him out of order. The oppvosition man around at his brethren and the This presumptuous parliamentary sugges- tion that a Hoffa vice president was violating Robert's Rules was just too much. The chair- man ruled the daring Brother Phillips out of order again and directed the sergeant at arms to throw him out. The rank and file stirred. They hollered him They grabbed the sergeant at arms and they outnumbered the muscle. The police came. So did order. The gendarmes then withdrew to a neutral corner. Phe meeting continued.

When Tony opened the meeting there were over in the hall. They had come to amend the by-laws. They wanted new statutes to say that the year business agents should be elected instead of appointed by the local's executive board. They wanted the rest of their officers chosen by a secret mail referendum of all the members instead of by a show of hands or voice vote in the open meeting hall. They wanted secret ballots on votes to THEN MR. PRO AW we're all one big get together. The rank and file did just that. They did not disturb the neutrality of the police.
