V, Lace Mill Company Crew Engaged Sn Inventory, Li quidation Plans Striking Union Announces Stiffening of Demands on Wage ^ Minimum , Closed Shop—Pensions Stopped for Old Hands Seventy - three Patchogue- P]ymbnth Lace mill .employees , including supervisors , were busy Monday preparing for the liq uidation of the stock on hand and taking inventory, in conformity with, the vote \by the company ' s board of direc- tors last Wednesday to close and sell the strilce-b oim d mill , its contents and site. Some of the 73 finished their work daring * the day and were told not to rep ort for work anj? longer. Acting on the board of directors ' de-cision , the ' mill gates were ' formally closed at 5 j). m. Friday. Except for a few bystanders , including police artel deputy sheriffs , there was no outward indication of the significance of , the event. In comparison with the 50. or 60 pickets th at generally inarched in close formation outside the mill gate at 5 p. m. daily during the strike , there were only two on hand at the main gate Friday, and two some distance eastward on tli e mill frontage. ' The minimum number of pickets is still walking in front of the lace mill. Heanwhile , the Patchogue Employ- ees ' association No. 1 , the striking organization , revealed publicly on Saturday for . the first time that it was seeking - a closed shop, rath er than- a union sliop, one of -tlie original purposes of the strike. (j, . —^ | Circulars Distributed | b- -——^- : -*$ In. mimeographed circulars distribut- ed throughout Patchogue and vicinity on S aturday, the association said that its demands; included seniority i'ig-hts , a closed shop, and a minimum wa ge of 40 cents an hour for female help and 65 cents an hour for Inale help. Also , one week' s vacation , an- nually. This proposed Wage scale , listed in the circular , also differed with -the original proposal , - announced : shortly after the outset of the strike by the then executive committee , which con- sisted of Joseph Arniandi , William Porter and Mrs. Nellie Caxdara. Mr. Armandi is chairman of the new en- larged committee. The original wage scale mentioned by the association ' s executive com- mittee , a group whicli since has been replaced by. a strike committee of 35 members , the names of wliom were not made known by the union , was one calling for \ a minimum of 40 cents ' an- hour for femal e help, and 45 cents an hour for male help, after one year ' s service in each case- When a sked Saturday as to when the changes had been made by the ass ociation , Albert ICorman of Hemp- stead , a C. I. O. agent , who is busi- ness agent for the association , said they had been decided at an associa- tion meeting on Jun e 20. The June 20 meeting . was the one at which Mr. Koiman joined _ the striking organization as its business agent , and the association voted _ to replace its three-member executive committee with the 35-member strike eommitee. Mr. Korman is a full time salaried agent of the C. I. O. An- other C. I. O- man from Hempstead , Jerome Scherr , is doing publicity work for the strikers. <^_ _—. — ~^> j Company Refuses Delay 1 ig>- ; ; • -® / Jriday afternoon , in its telegram of reply to the wire sent by the Pat- chogue Yillag* board and Brookhaven Town board , in which the . mill eorpor- . ation was asked to continue the Pat- chogue -mill in operation until July 15 , I. David Easton , treasurer of the cor- poration , thanked the-two boards for their \deep concern \ . and thanked them for their offer to serve. \The action which was t aken by our board of directors on June 25 , \ Mr. Easton telegraphed , \ was most carefully considered and unanimously adopted but only after repeated ef- forts by the management to . induce the workers to return to their respec- . tive jobs. The board of directors has requested the ni anagement to act . as expeditiously as ' possible. \ . . ¦ ¦ At the mill Monday, it was re- ported that the announced closing of the mill would mean ' the stoppage - of pensions for abontjten or 12 former empl oyees who had been receivin g this form of income up to the present time.
