Bu Vnitrd Piers WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.—Esti mating the number of unemployed in the United States at more than 4,000,000, Dr. Leo Wolman Os the national bureau of economic re search urged a system of unemploy ment insurance as the remedy in an address today before the Na tional Catholic Welfare conference here. Dr. Wolman, a member of the ad visory committee of the 1921 un employment conference of which President Hoover was chairman, said unemployment now is already as great as at that time and that “the prevailing level of unemploy ment will not be appreciably, if at all, reduced during the coming winter.” “It is a sad commentary on our social thinking that since the Hard ing unemployment conference in 1921 practically no progress has been made in the development of our public employment service,” he declared. Dr. Wolman said that it is un profitable at this time to inquire into the responsibility for unem ployment, and that unemployment insurance,' which now is operated successfully among more than 40,- 000,000 workers in Europe, offers a satisfactory solution.
