2,500,000 workers. It also Increased
its local employment offices from 90
to 900 in the same period.
These figures represent an increase
of about 1000 per cent in both labor
finding activities and in the estab-
lishment of local employment offices.
The steady rate at which the Serv
ice has grown in extent and accom
plishment is indicated by the fact
that in January .last 62,642 persons
were sent to jobs while last month
547,862 were directed to employ

to know how many of the balance

some employers and workers to noti

workers or jobs. At the outset of the

ONE YEAR OF EMMETT J. SCOTT
IN THE WAR DEPARTMENT
(Continued from page 1)
acquaintanceships thus formed, coup
led with native zeal, wisdom and In
dustry, render him an ideal man for
this exalted position. Mr. Scott has
justly earned the commendation of
the entire nation by his comprehen
sive grasp of the vital problems of
the day, and by his courageous mas
tery of them in conference, on the
platform and through the press. A
more satisfactory selection could not
have been made.
SECRETARY SCOTT AND HOW HE
IS DOING HIS GREAT WORK
Mr. Scott, though new to official
bombast attended his accession to
with the coolness of a veteran. No
Washington, approached his big Job
his office. He had no preconceived
"policies" to put over no personal
axes to grind. He had no friends to
reward and no. enemies to punish.
He did not "attudinize" for the pur
pose of magnifying the importance
of his mission or himself. Modestly
he took hold of bis work, with half
a desk as his quarters, owing to the
crowded conditions that obtained in
the "Secretary's Row" In the great
War Department Building proper,
and there he mapped out his pro
gram, with the one intent uppermost
in his mind to serve to the limit of
his powers the people whom he was
chosen to represent. He had faith in
his race, and in turn the race trusted
him implicitly. How the office out
grew its first cramped environs and
a whole room, with a single assist
ant was secured, is a story all by it
self. How further assistants, one by
one, were made necessary by the ex
pansion of the work and its tighten
ing grip upon the people, is still an
other story. The climax is now
reached, after a single year, when
the office has leaped into two mas
sive chambers, in the most attractive
corner of the first floor, facing

laws and puzzling circumstances that
reach into the Innermost reeesses of
the world's most massive war ma

fear of successful contradiction, that
I not a single error of judgment or
embarrassing action has come to mar
the proud record the office has made
; to date. The relations between the
! staff of Mr. Scott and the entire De
I partment, from the Secretary of War
; down to the humblest attache, have
' been of the most cordial nature and
I Mr. Ccott's recommendations or re

consideration by every bureau. This
