Chicago, Oct. 2iT Fast cracking telegraph wires the country over bore to engineers, firemen, conductors, trainmen, switchmen and telegraphers "out along the lines" on Friday the message that their strike was vailed off. Telegraphing in code the official recall was the first act of the day on the part of the union heads, who at midnight emerged from n final conference of a long, tense series of meetings and announced that the "satisfactory settlement" they had demanded had been reached. While the "big five" and the telegraphers, the only other union that had decided to go through xvith the strike, were sending out the strike recall, the United States railway labor board, which played an important part in the final decision of the unions, prepared to announce its findings in the negotiations. All the 200 men xvho attended the midnight conference, xvhich was held at the Morrison hotel, came from the meeting in good humor and apparently relieved at the final turn of events. They said they had been influenced by lien Hooper, a "public" member of the board, who told them at their morning session that the board's resolution of Tuesday night meant that further petitions for pay cuts would have to wait on pending hearings on rules and working conditions. I E. Sheppard, president of the conductors, said that the union chiefs felt the situation had changed so that If the strike started it xx-ouhl be a blow against the government. "We found, as the situation developed, that by striking xve xvould be hitting not the railroads hut the government," be said. "It never xvas our intention to fight the government." (Jovornmeiit plans to combat the strike, it was learned, Included a definite, extensive program through the courts. Twenty-four hours before the strike would hax-e started, injunctions would have beon asked In federal courts. The vote ending the strike came late Thursday night after all-day sessions of the union leaders. Early In the day general chairmen of each of the five organizations conferred separately. In the afternoon a joint session was held, xvhich was addressed by Mr. Hooper of the labor board. Mr. Hooper's appearance before the board is said by union leaders to have marked the turning point which led to the final decision. Mr. Hooper stressed the board's announcement that no further wage cuts for any class of employees will be considered until working conditions for that class of employees hax-e been settled. He is alo said to have emphasized the announcement of the rail executives made at Wednesday's hearing that no changes tn either wages or working conditions will be sought, except through the labor board, as provided by law. Union men said they construed Mr. Hooper's remarks as indicating that nearly a year must elapse before further xva::e cuts could be made effect I x-e, even tf the roads should apply for them at once and the board should exentually approach them. r.oth points are said to hax-e been highly Instrumental tn determining the final decision of the union men, who adjourned the afternoon session to hold a long night meeting. The final decision seemed pleasing to union men, rati executives and the labor board alike. Union leaders pointed out that they had determined that they could not strike without opposing both the labor board and the administration, xvhile they asserted their ren! quarrel was xvith the roads. Railroad executives expressed satisfaction with the decision, xvhile members of the labor board characterized the action as one the unions xvtll nexer regret and xvhich has ax-erted inconceivable hardship and an Internal Industrial dispute on the eve of the international conference at Washington on limitation of armament. Labor chieftains asserted that their action marked the end of nil danger of a strike as n result of -the strike vote taken by the unions, no walkout now being effective until a new vote is taken. No plans are being made for a new strike v-ote said W. O. Lee, of the Brotherhood of Railxvay Trainmen. Peace Proclamation Soon. Washington, Oct. 31.

HARDING IN SOUTH Advocates Broader Rights for tha Negro Race. Birmingham Blacks Cheer Speech-Whites Remain Silent Says U. S. Must Solve Peace Problems. Birmingham, Ala., Oct. 28. For the first time In history a Republican President came into the heart of the South and delivered a straight-froui-the-shoulder talk on nice problems. President Harding spoke to a great throng of Alabamans, white and b.lack, and told them pointedly that unless the United States is false to its professed democracy, the negro must be accorded equality In things political, business and educational. "Race amalgamation, there can never be," said the President, "but I say to you now, whether you like It or whether you don't, unless our democracy Is a lie, you must recognize that equality. I say that to all America, North and South, and black and white." The President was encircled by a great crowd of thousands who milled restlessly on their feet under a torrid Alabama sun. Two-thirds of his audience were white, the other third colored, and as the President spoke he eyed the thin "line of color" that ran zig-zaggedly through the crowd and marked the separation ot whites and blacks. From the colored section bf the crowd came cheers and applause; from the white section a silence that was absolute and stony. "United concentration tor war shall never be challenged again," said the President. "Our tasks now lie In applied concord and no less patriotic devotion In solving the problems of peace. These are not easy tasks. A world disordered amid the unheavals of war is not readily put lu order again. "But we shall succeed. Unshaken by world cataclysm, we hold our foundations-to the eternally right. The nation which withstood internecine conflict so heroically fought as the Civil war. will tolerate the threat of no minority which challenges the supremacy of laws or endangers our common welfare.
