Headline: “City Moves to End Minneapolis Strike”

Minneapolis — Spurred by outrages which make necessary police and fire guards at every theater of the city, the council has moved to take a hand in bringing about an end to the strike. A resolution has been passed calling for appointment of five aldermen as a committee to bring theater owners and the strikers together.

William F. Canavan, head of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employes and M.P. Machine Operators, yesterday was scheduled to take personal charge of the situation, in efforts to break the deadlock which has resulted in calling out every union employee in theaters here and at St. Paul.

Meanwhile, business at the theaters is holding up surprisingly well in view of the fact that this city ind St. Paul are regarded as strongholds of radical labor factions.
