Great Changes Brought About by
Country's Return to Peace h
DECREASE IN FAMILY WAGE
Withdrawal of Women and Children
From the Ranks of Paid Workers }
Caused Decline-Large and Increas. I
ing Volume of Unemployment. ti
By H. G. MOULTON.
One of the most significant devel
opments of the war was the general
increase in the standard of liiirg
among the laboring classes in this
country. Let me make myself clear;
this increase in real wages, as opposed
to molney wages, was not universal, but tI
it was widespread during 19114. The b
cost of living rose rapidly, it is true, o
but wages rose even more rapidly I,
among a large portion of the laboring
population. This statement may occa
sion surprise to those who have not re
flected carefully on the situation, for
there is a commlonly accepted theory
that prices always rise more rapidly
than wages. This is doubtless general
ly true so far as wage rates per day
or hour are concerned, though during
the war there were great numbers of
cases where rates rose even more rap
idly than prices. t
But the wage rate Is not the signifi- I v
cant factor in the wage situation. The d
important thing is the aggregate fam
ily wage for the year. The enormous
demands of the war in the first place
provided steady work for everybody;
300 days a year Instead of only 200 or
250, as in normal periods. Without
any increase in wage rates here is a
25 to 50 per cent increase in annual
In the second place the great de-'
mand for labor drew additional mem
bers of nearly every laboring family
into the ranks of paid workers. The
wives, the grown daughters and even
the children went out to work, with
a resulting substantial increase in the
family wage. t
In the third place there was double t
pay for overtime work. This feature
alone was of great importance. I think
it is not putting it too strongly to say
that the Liberty bond investments of
war workers could be paid for out of
overtime done, with something left
for increased consumption.
The results of these increased fam
ily wages were manifest in a great in
crease In consumption. More convenl
ences and luxuries of life were bought
by the masses in 1918 than ever be
fore. Indeed, it was common knowl
edge in trade circles that increased
consumption among "rich war labor
ers" was fully offsetting the decreased
consumption among the salaried and
well-to-do classes. It was indeed a I
royal time for labor.
But what is the situation now?
First, overtime work and pay were
abolished immediately after the sign
ing of the armistice. Second, many
women and children are withdrawing
from the ranks of paid workers, with
a resulting decline in the family wage.
Third, many discharged war workers
and discharged soldiers are accepting
peace-time jobs at substantial reduc
tlons in pay. Fourth, there is a large
and steadily increasing volume of un
employment. The net result of all
these forces is a great reduction in
the purchasing power of the masses
and hence in the demand for the prod
ucts of Industry.--Chicago Daily News.
For Univereal Eight-Hour Day.
According to a dispatch from Paris,
the French General Confederation of
Labor has asked the French govern
ment to include a demand for a world
wide elght4-our day and a five and a
half day week in the settlement of
international labor regulations. The
report recommends national employ
ment agencies and national immlgra
tion commissions, with an internation
al commission to supervise the exe
cution of laws relative to social insur
ance, migration and the "duration,
Ssafety and hygiene" of labor.
May Strike Againt Prohibition.
A "no beer, no work," slogan was
announced at Newark, N. J., by rep
resentatives df 30,000 building trade
workers, who condemned nation-wide
prohibition and voted to ask the Es
hex Trades council, comprising many
thousand union men in Newark and
vicinity, to start a movement for a
strike throughout the state July 1.
The delegates favored manufacture
and sale of light wines and beer.
"Buffer Employment" Project.
A patlon-wide construction program,

the period of threatened industrial un

ANSWERS WHICH WILL SOLVE
PERPLEXING PROBLEMS OF
THIS RECONSTRUCTION ERA.
Query.-The government has launched N
an educational campaign to encourage
building in order to put more me:a to
work. Would not a similar movement to
show how the old structures can be best
and most economically repaired and made
good as new also help?
Answer.--It is learned that such a H
plan is in effect and :s linkfed directly
with the WVshinlrton proplagl;i. Rla

Query.-What do you think of paint as
an invi.ltmCnt, aside from the appearance
it lends? Ioies it really I'AY to paint a
house regularly, say, every three or four
Answer.-Good paint properly ap- r
plied when needed is the nmlin thing in
making a house last long and well. A E
house worth $2,4-)0 can be painted at a
cost of about $125. In 6) years that
house will need about 15 paintings,
the total cost of which will be $1,895.
Left without paint, such a house would
fall into complete ruin in 30 years. So
taking 60 years as a basis for our fig
ures we find that with paint a home
will last that time in good condition
and will cost, plus paint, $4,375. With
out paint the house would have to be
rebuilt at' the end of 30 years and
would be ready for another complete
renovation when the sixtieth year ar
rived. Cost, without paint, $5,000 for
a home ready to fall to pieces. Does
regular painting pay? As the old
Dutch adage says:
"PAINT PAYS FOR ITSELF."
Query.-I have a quantity of old paint
on hand. Can I use it for the first coat in
repainting my barn?
Answer.-On no account should old
paint which has become fat be used
for priming either old or new work.
Old paint in that condition is best used
on a fence, brickwork or tinwork. If
you value your barn sufficiently to
paint it, do it the justice of a good job.

.A structure coated with sheets of In
dia rubber would not be as well protect
ed from decay as a structure coated
with a good oil paint. This is due to
the fact that a sheet of rubber is not
so durable or as waterproof as a thin
dried film of paint. The latter mate
r rial when applied dries to a continuous
elastic film contain'ng finely divided
, particles of metallic, wear resisting
b pigments. A square foot of such a
film upon a wooden surface costs less
Sthan a penny, yet it will beautify and
protect a dollar's worth of surface for
Smany years. This Is a low rate of ialn
Dwellings, barns, outbuildings, sheds,

paint may be used successfully for all
such purposes. Colored paints will be
found the most seviceable, the coloring

A Road In Tuscany.
T WAS the vlntage time, and I p
tried to forget that hal of Chrtis
tendom was plunged in a grout Ip
war. I*aving the fighting line. I hl
wandered about in the lovely freedom '1
of the hill country of Tuscany, past vii- "
las which are surmised rather than b
seen through the long vistas of grave, o
still cypresses and around smiling, sll
vergreen olive slopes from whose sum
mits beckon dignified palace fortresses ,
of the Medlcis or sterner and more t
aged ivy-decked towers, writes a Tus
cany correspondent of the New York c
Evening Post. Finally, I reached the ,
road of my morning's quest and ,
stopped where a high wall, after many *
turns and twists, suddenly opened to
a vision of green terraces. It was the d
gate to the podere upon which Too
loo and his forebears have labored for
the last century and a half-the fam- l
ily "going to the land." not as serfs,
but as willing servants of the soil. t
Entering the terraced farm, I skirt

It was a pagan-almost baeehanalian
'-pteure, as those huge cattle, white
and big-hored, moved slowly and pro
cessionally down the way, flanked by
grape vines in endless, festive wreaths
and festoons strong from tree to tree.
At the lower terrace a host of neigh
'bore was busily at work cutting the
dew-moist grapes, dropping the Isa
aous bunches into picturesque bas
kets lying all about. The sun played
in glad, shitting shadows in and out
