Washington, May 7. A study ef
profiteering in American industry
made under the auspices cf the rail-w-ay
brotherhoods, was presented to
the railroad labor board today in sup
port of the railway workers' demands
for higher pay and to refute the
charge that increased labor costs are
responsible for the high cost of living.
Prepared by W. J. Lauck, former sec
retary of the war labor board, the
study seeks to show that profiteering
in Industry is the fundamental cause
for high prices in practically all com
modities. It gives many statistics to
support that, contention.
Calling attention to the many war
made millionaires, the,study contends
that a three-fold relationship exists
"between high prices, profiteering and
the addition to the quota of million
aires." and that the increase in the
wealth of the wealthy is an "unan
swerable" refutation to all attempts
to charge labor with profiteering, a,nd
to all attempts to hold labor responsi-'
ble for the high cost of living.
Small Share to Labor.
"For. if invested wealth gets a
larger return." says the study, "a
larger proportion of the national in
come than formerly, the man who
gives personal service or labor is
bcund to get a smaller proportion
The menace of the future lies In the
probability that the vast profits which
are still held in reserve will be cap!
tauzea in order that under the pre
text of a fair return on capital these
wno own them may continue to take
larger proportion of -national Jrrcome,
even at the expense of very great suf
fering on the part of the workers
when the over-stimulation of war has
passed away."
Of the extraordinary Increase In the
price of sugar now amounting to 300
per cent the study says, the increase
in lahor cost paid by the consumer
was less than 15 per cent. The result
of advanced prices, according tothe
quoted reports ef twelve cornpanies-
producing over half of the sugar con
sumed in the United States was pic
tured in tne net profits of these con
cerns which it was said rose from an
average of til. 000. 000 during the
years 1913-1914 to 234.000,000 for the
years 1816-12. In the meat nackine
hlndustry where profits were said to
nave increased Between 300 and 409
pen cent, the labor item was shown so
small that a wage Increase of 109 per
cent would add less than 6 per cent
to the total cost of the meat, the in
crease in price between 1914 and 1912
was shown as eight times the total
labor cost and the 1918 price repre
sented twenty-five times the total la
bor item.
Half Price Is Profit.
Profits absorb approximately one
half the retail price of certain kinds
of cloth, the report declared, while the
labor item amounts to from one-fourteenth
to one-twentieth of the price.
Similar relations were pletured in the
manufacture of men's garments.
Shoes, according to the study, "fur
nished a splendid opportunity for the
profiteer." The profit items In 1914,
it was charged, absorbed nearly one
half the price paid by the consumer or
nearly three times the total labor eost,
while in 1917 the profit items amount
ed to approximately three-fifths of the
total price and over five times the to
tal labor coet.
Increases in the retail prlca of bi
tuminous col were shown at four'
times the Increase in labor casts, while
the proportion of the proceeds ef the
industry received by the coal operators
was shown as increased from T to
400 per cent. Profiteering did not
stop with the armistice, ths report de
clared, presenting figures to show that
corporation profits in 119 were 119
per cent over the pre-war average
which means thi study added, that
1919 profits were more than double
the average for the years 1913-1914.
An average pf 21,200 per family of
five during the years 1918-1918 was
j declared to be .probably a highly con
servative estimate oi me actual cost
of corporate profiteering to the consumer.

Consumption in 1880 Three
Pounds Per Capita ow 33.
Hutchinson, Kan., May 7. Altho In
the last twelve months the total out
put of paper, mills has been 80,000
tons less than consumption, strictly
speaking, there has been no shortage
of production the trouble was in
creased consumption, R. S. Kellogg ef
the News Print Service bureau, New
York, who is a product of RuSsell
county, Kansas, told Kansas editors
today in an address before the annual
convention cf the State Editorial asso
ciation here. The mills have been
producing more than ever before in
the history of the industry.
Mr. Kellogg said the news print pro
duction ef the mills in the United
States and Canada was an increase of
186.000 tona over that of 1918: that
new machinery installed this year Is
capable of making the 1920 increase
over 1919. 80.000 tons, and that, con
sidering present plans for enlarging
tha industry, by 1922 the supply
should be sufficient to take care of
the demand. The. total output this
year should be about 2,400,000 tons
dr 10 per cent more than 1919. '
As to the extent to which newspa
pers UEe -print paper, Mr. Kellogg fur
nished some interesting data.
In 1880 the newspapers used three
pounds per oapita; in 1 894, nine
pounds, and in 119, , thirty-rthree
pounds. At tne present rate, tnis
year's consumption will reach thirty-
five-pounds per capita.
Average daily circulation ef papers
