Montana Director of Federal
Employment CompiE S
Records of His Office or
Past Five Months;
Great Falls. Jan. 16.---WVith the
close of the year 1918, the United
States employment service completed
the fifth month of its existened In
Montana. Figures compiled at the
office of Federal Director Scott Leav
itt show a healthy growth of the serv
ice during that period, and, further,
a growing confidence in the service
both from the laboring men and
women and from the employer.
Organized for the purpose of as
sisting munitions manufacturers and
other big employers engaged in war
work and to prevent loss of time be
tween jobs for employes, the service
was expanded until now all classes of
labor are served, fromn the person
seeking help for an hour to the pro
fessional man and woman technically
trained to fill positions of trust. In I
the state of Montana, the service
reached a high point of efficiency
right at the time when it was of the
most value to the farmer harvesting
the grain crops.
That was a time when labor was
far more scarce than at any time in
the history of the country. Thousands
of men had been called to the na
tion's armed forces, while thousands
of others had been shipped to the
country's seaboard for work in the
During the five months covered in
the report compiled at the office of
the federal director of employment
for Montana, the 14 offices in
the state were called upon to fill a
total of 9,070 positions for women
and 34,051 positions for men. But
during that period the demand ex
ceeded the supply, for at no time
did the number of persons referred to
these positions equal the number of
positions. However, things are dif
ferent now, and when the January re
port is compiled it will show that the
number of applications will far ex
ceed the number of requests.
The report shows that in August
the service received 711 requests for
female help. registered 577 and re
rerred 42.:. 'This number was in
ereased more than 2000 per cent be
Iween that month and December,
when requests were made for 3,028
women, but only 1,613 registered, of
which 1,418 were referred, and
1,226 were reported placed. The un
official records of the service show
that more than this number were
placed, but the employers neglected
to return lthe introduction cards, and
tlese are not included.
In August the numlllber of requests
for male help received in the vari.
ous offices of the state total 9,313,
About a third of this number reg
istered ant 2.810 were referred. but
only 1.614 returned cards reported
nmen placed. However, it is stated
that practically all of those referred
I)uring the month of December a
total of 3,607 men were referred and
3,401 "'placed" cards were returned
to the offices. This inumber of men
were referred iupon demlands for
4,139 men. This report shows an
increase of about 30 per cent in the
numbher of mnen referred, while the
numlber placed shows*an increase of
mnore that 100 per cent. Then, too,
it. should be borne in mind that De
cemtber is usually a slack month.
November was the banner month
in male help wanted and also re
ferred, the figures showing that there
were 6,610 registrations; 7,189 re
quests for help, and 6,041 reported
placed. October shows the largest
number of requests for help, the
total being 7,492, with only 4,561 re
The records further show a total
of visits paid to the offices of the
service on business connected with
it, to have been 77,699, of which 11,
606 were women and 66,003 were
T'WO JUGS OF
Dickinson. N. D., Jan. 16.-Theo
dore Deletzke, former junk buyer in
this city, and erstwhile constable at
Belfield, is in the toils of the law on
a charge of importing booze into
"bone dry" territory, in the shape
of two suitcases which it is said con
tained four gallon jugs of whiskey,
14 smaller bottles of "red eye," and
a bottle of wine.
It is said that Deletzke had been
bragging about how he sold two gal
lons of booze at retail Christmas day
for $125. Officer McDonough got
wind of Deletzke's allqged exploits,
and laid for him upon the man's re
turn from Wibeaux on No. 4 Tues
day morning. The alleged booze pur
veyor wasn't taking any undue
chances, however, and hopped off
on the side of the train fartherest
from the depot. McDonough was on
the job, however, and nabbed him
I with the goods.
Deletzke became famous a year
ago when he was convicted on the
charges of stealing a goose from
Simon Guon and later beating him
up, drawing a sentence of 90 days.
A HUGE SUCCESS
The dance given by the Metal
Mine Workers' union at Pallmont
hall last evening proved to be the
largest attended affair of its kind of
the season. From both a social and
financial standpoint it was a huge

WILD P JOFlIEERING
Removal of Regulations Is
Signal for Jumps in Prices
Throughout the Country
on Feeds and Flour.
By V. E. lT]' It1EL..
St. Paul, Minn.. Jan. 16.- Millers
of Minnesota, the "breadbasket of
the world," doubled the price of bran
and middlings and slightly advanced
the price of flour. inlm ediately after
the interference with the profits ef
fected by federal regulation of the
food commission was removlled.
That there is no economnic justifi
cation for the advance is stated byt
I'. \V. Peck, associate in farm nlinl
agement at the college of agriculture
of the University of Minnesota. Stock
feeders, hardest hit by the arbitra ry
adlvance exacted by the milling co(l
bine, declare that the anly reason for
the advance was that the millers
found that they had the power to get
the higher prices--1-and t(hey exer
cised their power, which ihad been
denied them during the period of
The day before the federal regulan
tion was lifted bran was quoted at
$27.73 and middlings sold for $29.73.
When the federal regulation of prices
was removed the price of bran shot
to $41 a ton, with middlings selling
at $46. A couple of days later the
price of bran went up another notch.
to $43 a ton. Flour, milled according
to war standards, advanced 30 cents
In the meantime the millers get
the advantage of buying wheal from
the farmer at the government-regu
lated price. There has been no varia
tion from the government-controlled
wheat price paid to the farmers.
There has been no advance of any'
other cost of production of flour and
the by-products of wheat. Milling
costs, as well as the cost of the wheat.
remain the same.
For some time there has been a
growing feeling that the millers as
well as the other interests of the
country have been merely waiting
for government control to he lifted
before they took aribtrary control of
prices of food and feed again, and
advanced the prices whereerever they
chose. This instance seenl\s to be a
substantiation of that fear.
These persons plrcdict continued
advance in the price of foodstuffs.
They cite, that under the speculative
system of marketing wheat, tnder
pre-war conditions, g'imnblers were
able to put down the, price of grain
when they bought it from the farm
er and thbn shoot upl the price when
they had omntrol of it, thus inflating
the cost of all foodstuffs. They pre
