Get Off the Ladder and Sit Down at the Desk The American Universal Machine Offers This Opportunity

Arthur Woods was a painter and paper hanger and was earning $5, $6 and sometimes $7 a day, for he was a good workman and people liked him.

He was satisfied and would probably have re11

mained so if it had not been for the winter lay-off
and the danger of poisoning from paint chemicals.
His family was growing and unexpected expenses
were always turning up. Only occasionally did
he have anything to do in the winter and he very
naturally grew discouraged.

Recognizes Opportunity
He happened to see one of our advertisements

telling of the success others had made of the business of floor surfacing with one of our American Universal machines. Reading such experiences as the following led him to investigate:

"I make the 'American Universal way of floor surfacing a specialty now and my average earnings are at least $20.00 a day." J. A. Natzel, Arizona.

"I am making floor surfacing a specialty with the 'American Universal
and find it a good paying proposition. My average earnings are $28.00 a
day.” Geo. R. LaFlash, Mass.

! "I am well pleased with 'American Universal.' I
have made $30.00 in eight hours with my machine."
R. Waynick, Texas.

Earnings Increase 200% a Day
Woods decided to buy an American Universal and got

a small contract the first week, which
netted him $18.00 a day-an increase
of 200% over his wages as a painter
and paper hanger. He kept his old
work until his Floor Surfacing Ma-
chine was paid for. Then he devoted
all his time to the new work. Contractors
in his vicinity would give him their floor
surfacing and it was not long before he had
men working for him and was able to save
out of his profits, besides giving his family
all the comforts possible. Arthur Woods is

The union label enlists the unions, their members and friends in the combined interests of the fair employer and his employes.



Frank A. Fitzgerald, president of the Connecticut State Building Trades Council, has announced the following action taken at the semi-annual convention in Bristol, Conn., recently, which is of much importance to all members of the Trade Union Movement:

Early in this year, the firm that extensively manufactures brushes of all description, and known as the Fuller Brush Co., of the City of Hartford, Conn., had in contemplation the erection of a large set of new buildings within the jurisdiction of the Structural Building Trades Council of Hartford, Conn.

Following out an established custom, the Council, through its Secretary, Bro. George Watson, sent a letter to Alfred C. Fuller, President of the Fuller Brush Co., and requested him to give consideration to the employment of members of the Trade Union movement on the proposed building operations, and in this letter of Brother Watson's it was guaranteed to Mr. Fuller that there would be an extensive advertising of the Fuller product by members and friends of the Trade Union movement if Mr. Fuller would employ our men.

On May 1st, 1922, Bro. Watson's letter was answered to Secretary William A. Dermont of the Structural Building Trades Alliance, and this letter was signed by Mr. Alfred C. Fuller, President Fuller Brush Co., and certain paragraphs of the letter from Mr. Fuller we quote as follows:

“There is one phase of this question that is very serious, that is the labor unions are attempting through force and coercion to gain certain ends, many of which are extremely unethical, and are bound to have a very unfavorable reaction to the interest of labor in general. It makes very little difference to me that in certain instances the employer of labor has resorted to the same means."

“The thing which I personally object to above anything else in organized labor is the fact that they refuse to work in the same building even though working for different people, if there is a non-union man working. That policy or principle is entirely wrong from every standpoint, and so long as such a rule is in effect, I feel very reluctant to use union men, if for no other reason it has a direct effect and a detrimental effect on the rights of our own organization.”

After receiving Mr. Fuller's letter there was convened a special session of the Building Trades Men of Connecticut, and voted that a circular letter be sent out to all of our friends informing them of the attitude of the Fuller Brush Co., and requesting in the letter that all honorable means be resorted to, to induce the Company to employ Organized Workers on the work for the

Fuller Company. This letter was sent out and dated June 20th, 1922.

The Quincy, I11., Trades and Labor Assem! bly after receiving one of the above letters, appointed a committee to interview the Manager of the Agency of the Fuller Brush Co. in Quincy, Ill., and according to events the Manager sent a request for information to Hartford, Conn., relative to the complaint of the Committee in Quincy, Ill., and on Sep. tember 23rd, 1922, a gentleman signing him. self (J. C. Altrock) Divisional Sales Manager, Hartford, Conn., to Mr.. Ellsworth Staver, the Agent in Quincy, Ill., sent a letter, part of which reads as follows:

"As a company we feel that we want to save money wherever possible and it so happened that a non-union concern made the lowest bid and got the contract. This concern has nothing against the union and nothing against any individual's personal faith or creed or policies. It simply accepted the lowest bid.”

We ask all members and friends of the Trade Union movement to read over the paragraphs in the letter of the President of the concern (Mr. Alfred C. Fuller) and then to read over the one sent by his Sales Manager to Quincy, Ill., and compare them. You will observe that Mr. Fuller “positively refuses to have anything to do with Organized Wage Earners," and his Manager says, that it was the low bid that prompted the work to be done by non-union men.

You can readily understand that Mr. Fuller's letter is the one that displayed the attitude of the Company, and the letter of the Manager is one that is trying to de ceive you.

As this fight of Mr. Fuller's against Union Labor is yours as well as against the Build. ing Trades of Connecticut, we are asking you to please read this communication over carefully, and if an agent of the Fuller Company approaches you to buy the product of the Fuller Brush Co., which is also styled the “Hartford Brush,” will you ask him or her, please, why Mr. Fuller is fighting or ganized wage earners of this country, and please pay no attention to excuses and polished talk on the part of agents as to why this immense building program was erected by non-union men.

The mistress of the household represents the “purchasing power.” She cannot go on strike, but she can obviate the necessity of striking by demanding the union label.

The union label enlists and arms in labor's cause those elements which determine the issue of every cause in civilized societynamely, the women and children.
