Presence in Industry Will Be
Problem After War Ends.
London. Au_. 2. Child labor is one
of the Bubjccts touched upon in the
annuai report of the General Fedcra
t.on of Trade Uniona dealmg Wltl
problema to be solved after tha war.
The report says:
"The managoment committee na.
never ceased to emphaaize the ?C?liv.,,7
of tho industrial problems with which
the country will be faced at the end of
the war, and the presence of children
in agrieulture and induatry creatos
one of the first diffirulties which w?H
requir. attention.
"lt will be monstrous if the trane
BBiofli-t soldier returns to Bad his
children placed ns a barrier between
him and opportunitios of employm, nt.
To prevent such a catastrophe it may
bo necessnry to provide measures for
roturning employed children to school,
for rsising the leaving age, and for
making this age uniform throughout
the country.
"Such a policy will meet violent op?
position from employers who seek
juvenile labor because it Is cheap to
them although it may be dear to tlie
child and to the state."

"None Has Done More to
Protect Human Life,"
Commissioner Says.
System in Escape from Flamcs
Effected in 801 Build
ings in City.
Subftitution of motor tractors for
horses is not tho only .etback romance
haa received in the Fire Department
recently. On October 16 Commissioner
Ad_mson assigned Lieutenant Walter
J Dugan and a squad of twenty-five
j tircmen to tho duty of standardi.ing
fire drilli in New York. From that day
to this those men have not had to
count the itrokes of the gong; they
eould anooie through the clanging
! alarrn with a clear contcience; they
hardly smelled smoke.
They have been the eonsultlnr *ngl
nicrs of the public. Instead of groping
along narrow comlces to a thrilling
rascas they havo spent their days ad
vising and arguing with factory own?
ers and workers and their eveningi in
tabuluting their resnlta and planning
tlie next day's campaign.
Concerning these unromantlc figures
Commissioner Adamson aaid yester
\daji "No other body of men has done
j more to protect human life than this
j particular squad."
Before their appointment, eren with
'tho utmost good will on the part of
' manufacturers and workers, fire drills
I in New Vork were chnotic. Most fac
i tury buildings harboied several shops.
I Fach shop had its own tire drill. The
I drilli were frequently practised at dif
jfennt times, so that no one had the
' slightest conception of what might
oecai when the 1,000 or 3,000 to.lers
l sought tho exits at the same moment
; in ths event of h real fire.
Up to July t'? fire drills had been sys
! tSBWtlsad iri hi'l of tho l,0.r)H buildings
' ifl which the Fire Department rules re
., nre such precrrut.ons. Ihe work dono
j by the new squad touched tho lives of
nearly 100,00. persons, of whom not
? nor. than one in five hundred ever
l.card of the existence of the squad.
ln standard..ring th. drills care was
taken to emphasize such features a>
were common to drills in every type of
luilding, so that v.-orker. who drifted

al ISBSt have the fundamentals in
mind, however short the time of ther
