But all is not as rosy as the pic

certainly indicative of their strength.
Unions all over the state have j
joined to support the strikers at
Henderson. One or two locals in Dur
ham have sent money, others have
sent cigarettes reportedly 200 car-
ons to one local last week.
The strikers spend their days play
ing checkers in one of the union
halls, fishing, hunting or standing
around talking any and everything.
They also talked of their arrests
and near-arrests. They did this with
a haughty air but at the same time
there was a twinge of hostility. Once
in a while some of them get odd
j-bs to earn some spending money.
One striker asserted that when the

Each Friday night, at local 578 in
South Henderson, a dance is held.
Everyone seems to know everyone
else, and the affair is one of good-

The men at the union halls seemed
more anxious to talk about their si
tuation than did the women. The
women stood or sat around in the
background, talking among them
selves. As a wnoie me women
seemed less cheerful than the men
And then there were the children
As in almost any situation, the chil
tiren were carefree and gay un
aware of the tension and trouble
that surrounded them. They ran
around the union hall, laughing,
sci earning, shooting each pother
and reporters with water pistols
and just generally getting in the
thick of things. And, again, as in
almost any situation, parents were
constantly giving forth with shouts
of "keep quiet for a while." They
did for a wlule.
The youngsters, 14 16 years old
seemed concerned about the situa
tion, but, here again, there was
cheerful feeling. They didn't seem
bitter about the matter merely sad
dened to some degree. They were
alio very humble - and curious
