The charges were jnade by Mrs.
Km mi Eergdoll. mother of the

committee. Mrs. Bergdoll had
also charged that Campbell asked
JIMiDOO to tlx "higher-ups." Campbell
aooeared before the committee
yesterday to deny the charges.
"Mrs- Bergdoll's statement is
false In every particular." said
Campbell. "There is not a word of
truth In it."
Campbell acknowledged that he
deposited J4.300 with Wasserman
ITros. a brokerage firm in New
Yorlt, about the time Mrs. liergdoll i
claims the bribe money was paid to
him. But he declined to reveal

Th" maior explained that Mrs.

had grown to 15.000. Col.
Young. he said, is now dead.

CamDbell had demanded a secret

Gen. Sam Browne,
Arm Shot Away,
The 8ant Browne b?lt it a British
institution, designed originally for'
the convenience of a one-armed solder.
The reinstatement in the

explanation of the origin of the

Gen. Sir Samuel Joseph Browne.
K. C. B.. K. C. S. L, a most gallant
English officer and gentleman, accordng
to the records, was a leader
in the early Indian campaigns, serving
through the great mutiny. In
one battle he lost an arm. It was
this misfortune which caused him
to devise a new ?ort of saber belt,
which later was adopted generally
ly the British army. Ths belt, with
some modification, today bears the
name of its inventor. *
Sam Browne died in 1901 a holder

gages have been forced into taxexempt
LlttW Aetial Work.
"Notwithstanding, therefore, the
shortage of housing and the ne*d
for new construction the actual
work going on has fallen to a remarkably
small figure and this in
turn hss been reflected in unemDlovment.
In certain cases advantage
has been taken of the conditions.
"Much has been said in 1921 of
the inefficiency of building labor
during| the last few years. However.
except where effective management
with well-defined standards
has been in operation there
have been similar complaints
throughout the country in all Indusries.
This inefficiency has bee>* due
to abnormal conditions.
"With the depression in business
and lessened demand for all kinds
of labor the average production is
all industries is again approaching
normal. Certain contractors are
again basing estimates on the assumption
that labor is normally efficient.
The improvement is in
part due to the weeding out of misfits
in both labor and management."
Analysing the causes of building
waste, the report says irregular
employment is due to seasonal fluctuations,
bad weather, strikes and
Inefficient management is blamed
for failure to furnish continuity of
employment; failure to plan work
in sufficient detail; lack of proper
schedules to allow proper co-ordination
of scheduling, purchasing and
delivery with job requirements;
lack of standards and adequate
cost methods as a means of checking
production; high labor turnover;
failure to use proper amount
or type of equipment; general failure
to develop and use a greater
amount of mechanical equipment,
and waste cf material through careless
handling and Improper plant
Wasteful labor regulations, ac^rdlng
to the report, consist of requiring
skilled men to do work that
could be performed bf unskilled,
restricting Individual Incentive
through requiring uniform wages,
limiting the number of apprentices,
excessive reduction of working
hours, restricting output by prohibiting
the use of labor-saving devices,
and jurisdictional regulations.
Additional sources of waste are
failure of architects to furnish
check plans and specifications, duplication
of labor in estimating, and
often in design, and accidents whi' ?i
are particularly important In the
building industry because of the
extra-haxardous nature of the wortc.
Strikes Very Costly.
'Th estrike is one of the great
economic wastes to be found in the
building industry.*' the report declares.
"The waste to the men engaged.
the contractor and the public
is hard to estimate." it says. "The
major causes of strikes are occasioned
by demands for increase In
wages, and recognition of the union,
decrease in working hours, and by
jurisdictional disputes. ,
"Unions must co-operate," continues
the report, "to the extent of
eliminating the flat rate for all mechanics
of a trade and to the extent
of modifying the restriction
thst forbids mechanics to accept
piecework. With definite standards
fixed and with the co-operation of
both parties fair incentives can be
"The most encouraging sign in
the elimination of the above cause
is found in what is known as the
'Philadelphia plan,' put forth by the
labor element of that city."
Provisions of the Pisa
This plan contemplates the organisation
into a single body
through associations, groups or
committees of each employing
branch of the building industry in
number at least equal to the nineteen
represented in the council of
the Associated Building Trades. A
headlng-up committee, composed of
an equal number of representatives
from the groups of employers and
employed, would constitute the tribunal
or council of the building industry
in Philadelphia. The plan
proposes the establishment of a
central bureau through which voluntarily
all construction In the territory
would be cleared, including
Mate, municipal and private
* the principal aims of the
trade-unions, the report concludes,
should be to make their services
valuable to the employer by developing
and training the men in their
organisations and establishing a
high standard by assisting in the
development of standardisation of
time, method and material. .

FOES OF AMERICAN
Four Days Set Aside for
Presentation of Case
Opponents of the American valuation
plan will have an opportunity
to be heard before the Senate
Finance Committee next week.
Hearings on the Fordney tariff bill
will start Monday, with the first
four days set aside for consideration
of the scheme to abandon the
present system of foreign valuation
of imports and substitute home
Senator Penrose, chairman of the
Finance Committee, in announcing
plans for the hearings, said that he
hpped to complete them within two
weeks. !Ie would not predict when
the bill would be reported to the
Senate. He expressed the belief
that H would be completed by the
time the tax bill comes over from
the House. The tax bill will be
passed by the House, it t? expected,
within a month. Senator Penrose
expressed the opinion that there is
little likelihood of the Finance Committee
giving precedence to the tax
bill unless some unexpected delay
occurs in the consideration of the

With reference to the plan which
has been advocated by some Senators
of combining the tariff and
tax bills into one measure. Senator
Penrose said it made no difference
to him "whether the legislation was

Senator Penrose would not ex*
press any opinion as to the American
valuation plans. Although- no
opposition was In the
House, except from Democrat*, it
is understood that some of the Republican
Senators are inclined to
believe that this provision should
be eliminated from the bill entirely.
Sentiment on the proposition, however.
has not crystallized in the Senate
Committee to such an extent as
to make possible a prediction as to
Expects Rapid P>Htf
It is planned to devote less than
a day each to the other schedules
of the tariff bill. Although the
House Ways and Means Committee
devoted six weeks to hearings on
the bill, the Senate Committee expects
to make more rapid progress
in view of the fact that only those
who object to provisions of the
House bill will seek to be heard. It
is expected that In the case of some
of the schedules not more than one
or two witnesses will appear.
Numerous letters and telegrams
have been received by the committee,
however, asking that changes
be made in various rates of duty
provided in the House bill.
Among manufacturers, who are
dissatisfied with the Fordney bill,
are the sewing machine manufacI
turers. Sewing machines have been
left on the fre* list, although prior

New York Representative
Writes Herald of His
Measure to Return ExService
From Their Army Pay.
To the Kditor, The Wasbiattoa Herald:
I woud greatly . appreciate it if
you would call thli to the attention
of your readers:
By a rare coincidence, two circumstances,
given wide publicity today
make the fate of the soldiers'
bonus bill, endorsed by the American
Region, a subject of much uncertainty.
First, the letter of Secretary
Mellon as*ertB that the consumption
of the obligation to spend the sum
involved in the bonus bill, estimated
between one and one-half tp five
billions of dollars, will utterly block
the government's economy program
and lay unbearable burden of taxation
on the backs of the people.
Second. Dr. Thomas W. Salmon.
In hie testimony before the Senate
Committee Investigating tbe condition
of di(tabled yoMiara* gtates that

Of 1,715 former soldiers who applied
for mental treatment only 900 could
be taken cere of.
The impression made by these two
facta will cause the bravest bonus
advocate to falter and I fear that
the result will be that nothing
whatever wil be done to keep faith
with tbe men who carried our flag
to victory. ' /
It is doubtless true that now,
nearly three years after the war,
the financial distress of the exservice
men has been, in large
measure, alleviated. They have "readjusted"
themselves and the need
for financial relief is perhaps not so
urgent as when they discarded the
khaki. Nevertheless we owe them
a duty which we ought to fulfill.
Anticipating this outcome of the
bonus agitation. I introduced in the
last Congress H. R 13133 providing
for the return to all ex-service
men of the War Risk Insurance
premium, and for the return to the
enlisted personnel of all allotments,
for the support of dependents, deducted
from their pay. It is well
known that the pay checks of our

Likewise, when the government:
