To prevent the possibility of a big
unemployment problem in New York
this summer, due to the homecoming
of American troops who need jobs, the
United States Employement Service
yesterday ordered that all applications
for jobs from men still overseas shall
hereafter be forwarded to 'Washington
Dr. George W. Kirchway, state direc?
tor of the service, said that from 5,000
to 10.000 applications from overseas
men are being received daily. It is
the intention of the Washington offi?
cial? to forward applications to the
men's home towns.
Of the 100,000 unemployed here now,
Including discharged soldiers, sailors
?nd marines, 30,000 do not belong here,
Dr. Kirch we y said. "To prevent the
unemployment problem from becoming
?ren more acute, we 6hail use every
means to induce out of town men to
return, to their former job3 at home,"
said Dr. Kirchway. "New York will

The city is overcrowded with rcn

In demand, there are not nearly enough
clerical jobs to go around. Fully half

of some kind. They require more
money than the jobs pay."
Evidence that skilled help is in de?
mand came from several sources yes?
terday. Automobile manufacturers
sent word that it is almost impossible
to obtain carpenters, painters, me?
chanics and assemblers.
"We need this class of skilled help
badly." wrote a manufacturer. "It seems
impossible that there should be so

Division of Profits
Is Only Industrial
Issue, Says Wilson
Problem Can Be Worked
Out Around the Council
Table; Has No Fear of
Bolshevism in the U. S.
Industrial peace can be obtained by
a mutual understanding between capi?
tal and labor on the just division of
the proceeds of production, according
to William B. Wilson, Secretary of
Labor. It is only over the division of
what ?3 produced that differences of
opinion between the two arise, Secre?
tary Wilson told about 200 members
of the United Waist League of Amer?
ica and their guests at the organiza?
tion's regular monthly luncheon meet?
ing at the Hotel McAlpin yesterday.
"Labor and capital have mutual in?
terests," he said, "and their aims are
the same?the securing of the greatest
amount of production with the mini?
mum expenditure of labor and effort.
The division of the product, or the
profits from the product, can be
worked out around the council table.
Within the last six months the De?
partment of Labor has aided in the
settlement of thousands of labor dis?
putes on this principle, and less than
10 per cent of these difficulties have
reached the seriousness of a strike.
Before that fully 70 per cent of the
labor troubles had reached the strike
stage before the department began to
adjust labor disputes."
The Department of Labor has been
fighting Bolshevism and the T. W. W.
for two years, said Mr. Wilson. While
the world is seething with unrest and
Europe is boiling with Bolshevism, he
said, there is no fear of its spreading
here, because our country is further
developed along the lines of democracy
than any other in. the world. "The
workers of this country will repudiate
Bolshevism." he asserted, "when they
find it really means an autocracy of a
small self appointed vanguard of the

Samuel A, Lerner, president of the

presented with a suitably inscribed

Smashed Landing in Jersey
FREEHOLD, N. J., May 12.?Major
W. C. Ocker and Lieutenant C. H. Dau?

when their aeroplano turned over after

the de Haviland 4, which Captain E. T.

into camp. After the accident Major

ST. JOHN'S, N. F., May 12.?The pop?
ular excitement over the air flight com?
petition grows hourly, and the thor?
oughgoing character of the American
participation in the overseas race adds
greatly to the interest.
News of the movements of the Amer?
ican seaplanes at Trepassey was eager?

pointment was .shown when bulletins
stated that the weather conditions were
such that the flight would be post?

and Martinsyde machines, the occu?
pants of which are understood to have
determined upon making a break for

and large numbers of people visited the

TREPASSEY, N. F., May 12.?If Com- i
mander John H. Towers, director of;
the navy's transatlantic flight, planned
a "hop off" to-day of the NC-1 and
NC-3 for the Azores, the disturbance
prevailing late th?3 afternoon in the |
North Atlantic compelled him to change j
Commander Towers, however, is '
maintaining absolute silence with re- ?
gard to his plans, merely saying that
he would like to have the NC-4 join :
the division before the start, but that
he is unwilling to sacrifice favorable <
weather in waiting.
The Americans were confident that
the meteorological conditions which '
caused them to hug their base would '<
?keep the British aviators, Harry G.I
Hawker and Captain Frederick P.!
Raynham, landbound at St. John's.
Indications to-night were that thei

NC-4 May Skip Halifax
Whether Lieutenant Commander A.
C. Read of the NC-4 will attempt to
make up for the loss of time result?
ing from his enforced descent at Chat?
ham, Mass., by flying direct to Trepas
sey without a stop at Halifax was said
here to be uncertain. The only word
so far received from the NC-4 was
that the seaplane had ridden out a
gale at Chatham and was in good con?
dition tc resume her journey as soon
as weather permitted.
The American navy's hydroplanes will
set out on their transatlantic flight
carrying, if possible, crews of six men
instead of five, as originally planned,
and with extra propellers aboard, Com?
mander Towers announced to-duy.
The extra men and spare parts, to?
gether with a maximum supply of
petrol, would bring the weight of each
'plane to 28,800 pounds, the commander
said, which might prove to be more
than the 1,600-horsepower engines
could lift from the water. In this
event, he added, the craft, after a
surface cruises in the harbor, would
"taxi" back to the mother siiip, dis?
charge and drain off the excess fuel,
reducing the weight to 28,000 pounds,
the official full load. The motors of
the NC-1 and NC-'J easily carried 25,
000 pounds from Roekaway Point,
N. Y., to Halifax, and thence to this
Profit by Halifax Trip
The proposed enlargement of the
crews and equipment was the result,
Commander Towers seated, of the ex?
perience gained in the flight from
Halifax, when the NC-3, flagship of
the division, was delayed in her start
and then was forced to return to port
after cruising fifty miles because of
Mechanics worked on the NC-3 this
morning in a temperature 2 degrees
below freezing. A thin skin of ice
covered the harbor, but melted as the
sun rose toward the meridian. One of
the NC-3's propellers was shifted and
the gasoline tanks filled. The NC-1
was refueled and passed inspection
The 'planea were fitted out with belts
for the mechanics, so that motor re?
pairs could be made in midair.
There are many icebergs in the
ocean field immediately ahead of the
fliers. On the flight here from Halifax
Commander Towers said they were so
numerous that the sea in places looked
from his vantage point like a pasture
dotted with grazing sheep.
