Shaving Mugs From Bygone- Day Proudly Shown by Bostonei BOSTON, (UP) -- Among the gleaming chromium and sparkl crystal barber shops in this city today is one which is proudest not of its modern equipment, bu ot its collection of individua shaving mugs, some of which liavi been used more Ulan 50 years. When Sam DeFeo's father-in law opened a Friend street sho] a half century ago, shaving mug were commonplace. Today t h c j are nearly extinct. Thirty years in business, DcFec has about .'SO mugs in liis cabinet Thirteen are served for their own ers, designated by a marking 01 the cup or by the owner's nam painted oti the edge of the shell DeFeo has the mug used in th first shave given in the shop b. his father-in-law HO years ago. Some cups are of glass, hut mos are of porcelain, with a bake enamel covering. They wcig! about a half-pound and scldoi break unless abused. They orig inally cost about S2.50 each. 11 i almost impossible to buy any now for they began lo disappear frorr barbcr shop cabinets about I years ago. "Today most of those h a v i n nips do so for the f u n ot havin. t h e i r own. In the old days virtu ally every customer needed s h n v i n g mug, for we didn't hav sterilizing equipment then and on hot water supply was limited, DeFeo explained. Fishmongers Offer Free Beer. SYDNEY, (UP)--Sydney's fish mongers are planning to retalial against publicans here who ar stimulating sales by giving awa; oysters, fish, and even turkey, t anyone buying a drink. The Mas ter Fishmongers association pro poses to offer free beer with meal in certain districts. Thief Is Considerate.

KANSAS CITY, Mo., ( U P ) -our years ago Homer S. Martin as Baptist minister here. Friends ·edictcd a successful future for m as a clergyman. He was oung, enthusiastic, personable, ecause he was the national hop- ep-and-jump champion, they illed him "The Leaping Parson." Today he has jumped into the orefront o£ an industrial struggle lat may affect American industry or generations. He is intcrna- president of the United .utomobile Workers. In that posi- on, be sils at the right hand of ohn L. Lewis and helps direct ir-£lung efforts to sign collective argaining contracts with the na- on's motor car magnates. He quit the clergy because he ound it impossible to "fight the attic o£ labor as it should be ought as a minister." Assistants ay his rise 1 as a labor leader was .chieved by tenacity and intelli- ;ence. He is 44 years old, a tcc- otaler, and on occasions since eaving the ministry lias been cnown to vise vigorous language. Scholarly in Appearance. He little resembles the carica- ,ured labor leader of other years. :-lc is mild mannered, scholarly, [luent. Long devoted to economics, nc believes the "lot of the worker must and can be improved." It makes him angry when newspapers describe him as a radical. the Fisher Body and Chevrolet plants in the spring ot 1934. When Martin quit the pulpit, he entered the Fisher Body plant as a worker on the assembly line. Early in 1034, he helped organize Ihe United Automobile Workers Local No. 9,'!, and was chosen the organization's first vice president. Ucftiscil Pastorale Offer. M a r t i n and several other worker;- lost their jobs two months later. He refused the offer o[ another pastorate and. became a central figure in strikes al the p l a n t that spring. He devoted his full time lo union work when the strike was settled. He left here in 1935 and assumed a position at international headquarters ot the union in Chicago. He was elected internalionul president at South Bend, Ind., last April. Martin was graduated tvom William Jewell college at Liberty, Mo. He was one of the outstanding track athletes the school has produced. He wishes he still had time to devQtc to track. "I'm loo old to do any good," Martin said, "but it would be fun." a progressive," he said. is a world of difference. I'm "There . This union is not trying to overthrow the motor car companies, ft 's necessary t h a t a strong union be formed for the protection of (lie workers. We have no desire to uirt the companies, because it is where the workers make their liv- ng. We believe, however, higher standards for the workers are imperative." He said his first realization of he "terrible conditions" confront- ng many workers came when be ·=ervecl f i v e years as a missionary the West Bottoms industrial district of Kansas. New Ideals Formeil. "f took my labor doctrines to lie church," he said, "I even had abor organizers talk in the church.
