Inclined to grin bashfully, instead of looking grim when explaining their grievances, the boys had no place to "sit aown" and did not attempt picketing. So they scampered about the loop in packs, pausing at company offices to call out more boys. Toward the end of the day they claimed 450 on strike, against company estimates that not more t h a n 150 ot the city's 1,000 boys had walked out. Agree tn Truce. Shortly afterward, a "committee of 10" met with Western Union officials and after an hour's parley agreed to a temporary "truce" with discussion to be resumed Friday. , Meanwhile, tiie W. U. strikers returned to work. ' Since the messengers were unorganized, their demands varied from group to group. In general, Western Union messengers wanted 40 cents an hour, an eight hour day, seniority rights, and time and a half pay for overtime. There were subsidiary demands that the companies replace puttees with long trousers, since puttees are uncomfortable and difficult to shine, and supply bicycles instead ot subjecting the boys to the risk of having their own stolen. Want S14 a Week. Postal Telegraph boys wore reported willing to settle for $14 a week. Some average less than half that, they said. The strike began at the board of trade an hour before noon. It extended to loop offices and soon girl clerks were delivering messages which could not be telephoned. Down M i c h i g a n ' a v e n u e marched the black horse troop and :onsular corps in a parade to celebrate Chicago's centennial as a city. Behind them proudly strutted some 200 Western Union boys, ·who had seized the opportunity to publicize their demands. To escape dentification and to show themselves as strikers they had removed numbers from their uniform caps. Kept in Confusion. Postal Telegraph messengers ept officials in a state of confn- ion by returning to work for brief periods, then suddenly walking out again. Grievances of Western Union soys were directed chiefly at the corriiBiission system of payment, DONALD ,T. MOORE Under the direction of Donald ,T.

Denies Part in Murder of Britt Farmer Firmly denying any part in the murder of James Zrostlik Nov. 2, 1935, at Britt, Thomas Runyon told a Globe-Gazette reporter from behind the bars of the Cerro Gordo county jail Thursday "I did not kill James Zrostlik, and did not shoot at a soul in my life." "Sure, I robbed a couple o£ banks in Minnesota with Clare Gibson," the blond 31 year old painter frankly admitted, "but we never did believe in any rough stuff. There's no sense to shooting, for it can't do you any good," said the man who is being held for murder. He repeated that there was no brutality in the bank holdups, the only crimes he admits. Worked as Painter. "I've worked all over as a painter," Runyon said, "and have been employed in South Dakota, Minneapolis and Florida, but I never before have been in this part of the country. Why, 1 didn't know of the murder charge against me until State Agent Paul Gruber told me about it in Sioux City this morning," he said. "I was in,Sioux Falls, my home town, at the time of the murder. No, I don't remember just where I was or what I was doing, but you must remember that was some time ago," he answered the reporter's, query. "When Gibson and I held up those banks, we would leave from a place where we were staying 'north of Minneapolis,'" the slim suspect said in explaining how the towns Were reached without going through North Iowa. He gave the explanation in answer to a question by the interviewer as to how he circumvented this territorv, since he disclaimed ever having been in North Iowa. ' Has Wife and Son. Runyon refused to mention his family, except to say that he had a wife and small son. Where, he would not reveal. "It won' me any good to say anything about my family," .he.said, "and any- way, they've already suffered from the disgrace. It's bad enough as it is," he said. "It's harder on my folks than it is on me," the suspect added. . . "No, I've never before been accused of murder or any other crime," he answered the reporter. "I've never handled a machine gun in my life," he answered another question, significant because the Britt killers had a machine gun in their arsenal. "What do I think the outcome o£ all this will be? I think I will be proved innocent because I ''can prove 1 was elsewhere at the time of the Zrostlik killing," he replied to the interviewer's concluding question. 23 KILLED WHEN SHIP HITS MINE Cargo of Gasoline Explodes Off Spanish Coast; Only One of Crew Saved. PORT VENDEES, France, (UP) --Twenty-three men were burned to death Thursday when the Greek steamer, Loukia, struck a submerged Spanish mine near Rosas on the Mediterranean coast off Spain. A gasoline cargo immediately exploded. Only one member of the crew was saved. He was taken to a hospital in a critical condition by a rescue ship. , The ship burned for several hours and then sank. The vessel, carrying 3,000 tons o£ gasoline, was steaming through KI storm when it struck the mine. The tragedy occurred in the same area in which the British vessel, Llandovery Castle, and the French freighter, Marie Therese Le- Borgne, hit mines within the last 10 days. It was understood the explosives were planted by the Spanish rebels to keep ships from loyalist ports in northeast Spain. The Loukia, _a 2,143 ton tanker, left here at 3 a. m. Thursday and struck the mine only an hour later. f[ FRONT PAGE NEWS . /fa EVERY NIGHT . . . 11 . TONIGHT AND P. M. . . . KGUO. ANOTHER INCREASE and another reason to take advantage of OUR VALUES NOW!
