BIG STRIKE OF AUTO WORKERS ON AT DETROIT
The Day Book

Detroit, Mich., June 18.—The strike of the automobile workers, which at first promised to limit itself to the plants of the Studebaker Company, has now spread out to include men from the Cadillac, Packard and Krit Motor Company plants, and as there are nearly 5,000 on strike, with others joining the walkout industry, the police are preparing for serious trouble.

Minor disorders started today when the strikers claimed that mounted police had charged into a mass meeting of men at Plant 1 of the Studebaker corporation. David Fishman, a 23-year-old I. W. W. organizer, was arrested and locked up as a "suspicious person."
