I'm sorry some of the pictures I took suck, they wouldn't let me scan.

Excellent. I've seen a few in a library before
I've always found shop bulletins to be tremendously important reflections of the real organizational activities and so forth

I also have some GOBs from that time and the "labor newsletter" that 440 published post-WWII, but the photos I took of those are worse, to the point where some parts of the labor newsletters are unreadable to me. I could still put them up if there is interest.

Naw, it's a quote from the workers correspondence section
I believe they suggested a wobbly matrimonial service. Check out it
For sure it was a goof

I read it as a work joke. There's a story about one IWW borrowing $10 from another IWW to take another IWW's daughter on a date.
