Lincolnton, N. C., February 5, 1936. FRANCIS J. GORMAN,

Washington, D. C. DEAR SIR AND BROTHER: The Lincoln Thread Spinners have started again their eviction policr as C. E. Baxter and mysolf have begum trying to organize the workers here. You will find encl sed a copy of the paper which has already been served. This mill village's houses are in very bad condition, as the other mills' villages connected with t'e office of W. W. Glenn. To my opinion, and some little news I have overheard, they are tr ing to get a loan through from the Government. This company is very crue to its workers. As you know, there is only one charter in this county. It is now in the house in which I live, in one of the mill villages. Of course, the aforesaid company has found it out. They are moving me out Saturday morning. In reading the letter enclosed you may see the situation I am now in. Fraternally yours,

Tom L. LAY, Secretary.

LANCASTER, S. C. DEAR MR. GORMAX: I am writing to inform you about the condition of this mill since the X. R. A. has been killed. They are working the help 10, 11, and 12 hours without any dinner hour, and with not much more pay than we were getting for 8 hours.

We are not organized here but, I think most of the people would be if they would come in and try to organize it. They have stretched the work out so until the people can hardly do it like they are required to.

We are looking forward ior Congress to do something and hope that this place is organized soon. Yours truly,

Employed by Springs Cotton Vill.
