A Sensible Corset For Sports Wear f While the very young girl may successfully wear an elastic girdle, many women orefcr a boned corset of the type that allows plenty of freedom, of action yet comfortably supports the figure and gives it a graceful, slender contour. - In the designing of. the. new j(rt these points were given careful consideration. Made with a short extension top (built up only at the back from the elastic waistband), , Which keeps the skirtband in place, this model is supple enough to permit freedom of every movement, and whether on the tennis court, ax the gblf links or out walking, its wearer always has that assurance which belongs to those who know they are smartly turned out.

Mr. Remsburg has been for some years a, resident of Southern California engaged in raising oranges. In tho Congressional Record of Jan. 21 of this year appears a list of the whlto collar Shipping Board, and $7.50 For Sale by r i i i 'mm s m S II II Emergency Fleet Corporation staff covering seven pages. Tho salary In. creases and new Jobs appearing In this list amount to about $1,600,000. And this at a time when Don. "Hell's Maria" Dawes is roaming around Washington with an axe, under Presi dential warrant, supposedly slashing expenses right and left In every de partment of tho Government. Gen. Dawes was "Hell's Marlalng" profusely when Albert D. Lasker was taken out of a. Chicago advertising agency and placed at the head of the Shipping Board last June, bringing with htm from Chicago Mr. Elmer Suhleslnger, an eminent corporation lawyer, who is now tho guiding light in the Emergency Fleet Corporation. But Gen. Dawes didn't scare Chair man Lasker and Mr. Schleslnger. They proceeded to bring In W. J, Love and J, B. Small, experienced shipping mon, at $35,000 a year eaoh, and 11. H. Kimball at $30,000 a year, 'and A. F. Mack at $25,000 a year and a fleet of lawyers to Whom, they promised salaries ranging; from $10,000 a year to $25,000 a year. Congress, however, restricted the pay of tho lawyors to $11,000 a year maximum. However, tho lawyers aro .there seveniy-eitrni or xnem in me BMP plng Board, and their combined sal aries make a, hole In tho appropria tion amounting to $700,000 a year. Tho other employees ot tho legal de partment run tho salary roll up to $962,881 a yar, and other expenses amount to $514,340 a year, bringing tho total expenso of the legal depart ment up to $1,477,021 a year. The Lasker policy of high pay sent a thrill through the Shipping Board ana the emergency Fleet Corpora tion, The old boards had been con ducted along conventional Govern ment lines. When Mr. Lasker began planting the payroll with high sal arled men ho had to Increase the salaries of hundreds of old em ployees holding similar positions. An Instance Is that of Mr. A. J Krey, ono of the VIoo Presidents of tho Emergency Fleet Corporation. He was appointed on May 1, 1318 during the war when the. Shipping Board was hitting on all cylinders and turning out ships like a machine turns out cigar boxes, and his sal ary was $8,500 a year. He struggled along on that, an porently contented until the Lasker regimes camo In. tfew men holding positions approximating hla In 1m portance, woro put on the payroll at $25,000 a year. His salary, there- fore was boosted to $25,000 a year, or practically trebled.

A single contract for 150,000 lines can earn this extremely low rate. The nearest approach to this rate in point of economy is offered by a possible all-dayrand-Sunday combination of two papers under different ownerships 8.9 cents per line per 100,000 copies, To earn this, however. It is necessary to contract for an aggregate of 700,000 lines in both papers. In the commitment alone, there is a marked advantage accruing to the user of large space who concentrates the bulk of his advertising in MORNING 353.852 names to a newspaper, but they Bay thoy would willingly go before a Congressional Board of Inquiry ana testify under oath to some of their experiences.
