Kobcrtson is 71

Johnston is 72 and has been grand
chief engineer 22 year .
The brotherhoods work together
for short periods and in various
combinations. But generally they
are rivals. They have fought one
another to sign up new members.
Their leaders have fussed and
feuded.
In 1946 when Whitney's Train
men and Johnston's Engineers
went on strike, President Truman
wasn't the only one to give them
an unshirted lashing. Robertson
did too.
Today the situation is different.
Johnston and Robertson are to-;
gethcr (also the Switchmen's
Union) in pushing their demands j
to the last possible length An
emergency board appointed by 1
President Truman is hearing the
case at Chicago. The unions may
strike in April but don't bet on
it. I
Separate Settlement
Whitney's Trainmen lalso the !
Conductors) broke oil from the '.
other three "operating'' unions
last November. They settled with !
the railroads for 15V cents an l
hour and some changes in the j
working rules. i
An olficer of the Trainmen said I
the engineers, firemen. and
switchmen had stuck their "feet ;
in the sand" and would have to
wait many weeks for their wage j
raise. Robertson said the "abrupt
settlement" surprised him and
was based on "confusion" among
the trainmen and conductors.
An odd thing about the brother
hoods: their memberships over
lap. An unknown number of men
hold double membership in the
Trainmen and Conductors. Per
haps 20,000 to 30,000 men belong
to both Johnston's Engineers and
Robertson's Firemen, Thus you
can't add the membership figures
of the brotherhoods and get an ac
curate total.
The membership figures also in
clude retired men and many others
who have changed jobs or lei', the
railroad industry.
The main explanation of all this j T)t naliri-s railroads cany an

SARASOTA, Flu. Can a mule
sit down?
This is just one ol the scores of
questions asked the Kingling Bros,
and Barnus and Bailey circus dur
ing the off season when the show is
in' winter quarters here.
They come in every day, in
batches from all over the country.
Most of them are from circus fans
but some come from writers, lec
turers and others seeking lads not
found in books.
The one alioul t:ie muie came
from Mrs. Maud Crowley, of
Marblehrad, Mass. Of course,
Mrs. Crowley's .vouiik son, Mavid,
asked her, but she Uu.ii i Know
and neither did any authorities
she could think of, including
Harvard University.
Encyclopedias made no mention
of a mule's sitting abilities.
Mrs. Crawley enclosed a sketch
of a dog sitting, and asked if a
mule can sit like that
Her inquiry brought a prompt
reply from Roland llutler, gen
eral press representative who
wrote:
"Yes, a mule can sit down, like
a doe. Mules often sit, to rest
or from just plain eussedness."
That took care ol thai, but most
inquiries go to Leonard S. Ayles
worlh, head of the circus' seat
department and one ol the veter
ans on the lot Ken knows every
thing about a circus. Many in
quiries come from model circus
builders. They ask for exact di
mensions of wagons, tents, seats,
trains; the length of lent poles,
ridge poles, guy lines. Some want
to know the number of animals.
wagons, railroad cars and other
equipment. They request photo
graphs blueprints and drawings.
One man said he had a com
plete model circus including
hand-carved elephants, camels,
and giraffes; a layout of tents,
wagons and railroad cars, bag
sage wagons and cages.
