Help Hoover in Jobless Plans Idea of Releasing Money Available for Highway Construction Is indorsee] by til?? American Society 116 Places for Veterans Tribune Reporters Story of Finding Employment In? spires Varying Comment Plans of Secretary Hoover to ra iie.ve the national unemployment sit? uation through the release this Fall of millions of rrollars available for high? way construction and repair were given added impetus yesterday by an announcement that the engineers of the country are uniting in support of them. This announcement was made by local heads of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, which, with the Federated American Engineering Societies, is one of the organizations aligned with President Harding', pro? jected national conference on unem? ployment. "The engineers are solidly behind Secretary Hoover in his efforts to pro? mote employment." said K. M. Gates, of Philadelphia, chairman of the ma? terials handling division of the engi? neers' society. "They have provided him with exact data on the advisability of letting highway contracts in tho Fall instead of in the Spring, which he has used In a communication dealing with road contracts sent to the governors of all the states. Towns to Share in Program "In* addition to the highway con? struction depending on Federal aid, the Fall letting of contracts would tend to release road funds confined to towns and cities. It would mean a longer construction season, which in turn wculd result in better car service, less fluctuation in construction and the Completion of highway programs." An offer of 116 jobs.for that number of war veterans now out of work, 79 of them "white collar jobs," was made yesterday by Harry D. Jacobs, president cf the Ex-Service Men's Em pioyment Bureau, No. <t East Forty tnird Street. Requesting The Tribune to publish the offer, Mr. Jacobs in a letter gave assurances that "there is no charge of any nature to either the employer or the employee" in connec? tion with the jobs offered, and that the bureau "makes no discrimination relative to race, religion, veteran or? ganization or affiliations" of applicant?. "We are the only bureau of this kind in New York City and our work is in? dorsed by the American Legion," the litter sets forth. The jobs offered are one farmhand, single; one farmer, man and wife; two carpenters, five salesmen, fifteen able seamen, twenty watchmen and seventy-two clerical workers. Appli? cants should report at the bureau of? fices on Monday morning. As the result of the publication by The Tribune of the experiences on Tuesday and Wednesday of one of its reporters on a job-hunting expedition, whereby he landed three "blue flannel shirt jobs" in one day and two "white collar jobs'' on the next, this news? paper has received a number of letters from unemployed or recently idle men. They comment chiefly on the main con? clusion drawn from the results of the expedition, that there are jobs to be had in New York for earnest workers who will seek them, instead of spend? ing their time on the park benches of the city. The comment is about evenly di vid'e'd as for and against that conclu? sion. The following letter, from Ernest Teske, an aggressive shipping clerk, of Tarrytown, who refused, to let the unemployment situation put him down and out, is typical of those who believe that a "hustler" can get a job if he will "dig" for one hard enough: "I read with Interest the story of , your reporter regarding unemployment ;n Xew York t'ity. "I have been out of a regulier job i since April, when 1 was luid off with : many mere men, a? the factory where I was employed only worked half-time. 1 managed to get some odd jobs and , pulled through. Then 1 went West :md worked as ? farra hand, saving $116 u> come Bast again and try once more for a Job aa shipping clerk. "But on the way to New York I was : held up, unmercifully beaten and robbed of every damned cent. Thus I landed in New York penniless. "1 went to the Bowery Y. M. C. A. to clean up. But when I saw about me such a sorry lot of men panhandling . for a living, and without any go or I ambition to do anything else, 1 started I immediately to leave town. 1 began ; walking north, refusing to 'bum' money from any one. i "In Harlem I had the offer of a job ', at 3ome heavy work, but as I weigh ; only ll(i pounds I was unable to hold i it. The same thing happened in Irvlng ! ton. So I kept right on going to Tar : rytow?, where I landed my present ! job and am now fixed in it. "1 get $45 a month and my board and room, and so am able to get along pretty well. I am now saving up for some good clothes. My opinion is that if a man hustles he can land a job. i As the Salvation Army says, 'You ; might be dq^vn, but never out.'-' Out of Work Eight Months Contrasting with this letter arid the spir I of the man who wrote it is one ! from a college graduate, who says tha.* j he hasn't been able to find work for eight months. His letter, which is il? lustrative of many which hold the view t opposed to that of shipping clerk i Teske, reads as follows: "Referring to the statement that 'all j a man has to do is to dig hi and keer ; digging until he gets a job,' ? deny this assertion, because I have been digging and looking around for those jobs which you, the only newspaper in New ? York, says exist in appreciable num ? bcrs. "I am no bench warmer, floater or '?. panhandler, but am simply ?ike many 1 others who cannot get a job when there are none unless you have lots of ex ' perience, or are, "like Adaai, with wis i dom from birth. "Instead of belonging to such classes ? of society I can produce a graduation ! certificate from Fordham University, which feat I accomplished by working i my way through. After graduation, in ! 1920, I secured a position with Under ; wood & Underwood, of this city, which j 1 kept until last January. Then came | the great business slump, and I was | laid off with all the other employees who had been there less than a year. "Since then I have tried place after place and agency after agency with ' out success. Education, which men, i such as the big employer of labor you ! mentioned talk blue in the face for, i is not wanted, but only experience in | the business in question. Differs With Executive "I also flatly deny the statement at ? tributed to the New Yrork executive that 'the present process is the weed ! ing out of incompetents in ail indus ! tries of the country.' I claim it is more than weeding out; it is the laying off ! of good workers, not the best, but ones plenty good enough to work steadily in ordinary times. I know several in ? stances of cases of this nature. "He says 'we are weeding out the I lazy, incompetent and weakiings.' Very ! good. I suggest another weeding out, | the elimination of the big bulk of . women workers who came in during the i war. They belong in the homes, and I eventually they will go there. Then, I perhaps, the so-called inefficient, lazy i and weaklings will get a chance to ; exist honestly, which this man so au ; thoritatively tries to deprive them of. i "He also claims a good man can ; always get a job. Y'es, a very good ? man, with the addition of some lying; ; some good men, but not all. I also no I tice that the reporter who got those : jobs did not get them through a friend, I employment agency, charity organiza i tion or 'help wanted ad.' This ought to ? prove that jobs are not appreciably ; plentiful. His way of getting work may do for some, but not for the big | majority. Jobs surely cannot be plen I tiful when an experienced reporter uses none of tho ordinary channels of getting work. "The real reason that myself and thousands of others are on park benches is nut because we were lazy, inefficient weaklings and chronic idlers, like that employment expert of your? said, but because there is no work to be found." Another letter, from a seafaring man j out of a job, asserts that "the govern- j ment has hundreds of ships tied up in j and around New .York, most of them with hardly enough men aboard to be of use in case of fire or some accident." Work could be found for many men in keeping these vessels in shipshape con- | dition, the letter suggests. I 650 Workers Recalled At Elm ira Auto Plant Full Quota of 2.000 Employees Will Be Engaged Soon at the Willys-Morrow Shops Special Dvtpateh to The Tribune ELMIRA, N. Y.. Sept. 10.?Six hun-j I dred and fifty men were engaged to-day iiit the Willys-Morrow plant, subsidiary ! of the Willys-Overland Company of j Toledo, following announcement yoster j day that 2,000 workmen were wanted for j the resumption of operations. The re | opening of the largest automobile plant ! in this section followed production or j dera which were received from Toledo and the men hired to-day immediately I began work on "first production." An official of the company declared I to-day that more men would be em ! ployed next week and that the plant j would be running on normal schedule | as quickly as possible, i The plant employment office was be? sieged by hundreds of men this morn? ing, most of whom were former em? ployees of tho company.

The Willys | Morrow Company is dependent on the i Toledo operations and has been idle I throughout the period of business de i pression. The re-opening closely followed the ; announcement of reduced prices of the j Willys-Overland product, but no fur j ther statement than the call for men | was available because of the absence ! from the city of President Alexander P. ! Morrow. Secretary J. E. Morrow announced , the resumption of operations. He I said: "Tell all former employees of the ! Willys-Morrow Company to return to ; work at once. Orders have been re? ceived from Toledo to start immediate i ly under full force. We want our em ? ployees at once, and we have not the I time to send word to each one person I ally." i. -. | M. L.

Buys His Buddy In Open Boston "Slave" Market Marines Who Fought "Over There" Have a Strange Meeting When One Takes Other Away as Chattel .______-___? Colored Parcel Offered Professional "and Sold to Highest Bidder*' Person Errs in Advertising Self Special Dispatch to The Tribun? BOSTON, Sept. 10.?A stirring scene was enacted on Urbain Ledoux's "slave block" on tho bandstand in Boston Common, when Edward Dixon, who yes? terday broke down from physical weak? ness and mental strain when he was placed on the block at the unemploy? ment auction, to-duy appeared with his army "buddy," Albert Savoy, the boy who had served by his side when the two fought together in France with the Gth Marines. I.edoux has been putting unemployed men up at auction and knocking them down to bidders who offered jobs at the highest wages. Savoy was the first man to be auc? tioned to-day. At the call of "ex-serv? ice men first" from C. L. Byrnes, pro? fessional auctioneer, who had offered his services freer to-day to help out, Savoy stepped, forward and mounted the block, a straight, ciean-cut lad of soldierly bearing. Five Thousand Assemble Savoy's brief account of himself and his situation was read by Byrnes, as the boy faced the crowd of over 5,000 which massed in around the bandstand to witness the third day of the auction: "Age twenty-four, two months without work, three days without food; a sol? dier in the 6th Marines, wounded in the arm," cried the auctioneer. "Who will bid?" "One moment," and Ledoux stepped forward again. "There is something more, I think, you should know in this case. Some of you will remember the fainting lad who was sold from this block yesterday. He came to me. He said that his buddy, his chum, was likewise out of work, penniless and shelterless. Could we find him ? I said we would do our utmost. And we located that boy. He stands before you now, and his buddy, Dixon, who yester? day found food and shelter through 'slavery' is to-day here to bid him in." A low murmur of sympathy swept over the crowd, which broke into a applause as young Dixon pushed his way through the group on the band? stand, stepped up on the "block" and, side by side with his buddy, faced the cheering crowd. An entirely changed Edward Dixon to-day stood on the block, where yes? terday he collapsed. His ragged clothes, the- only ones he owrned in the world yesterday, were replaced by neat and clean khaki troupers, a white shirt, good shoes and a respectable straw hat. He even had a package of cigarettes. He was clean shaven and shorn, a fine young working fellow. "What am I bid?" the auctioneer again questioned. In a low voice Dixon spoke to him. "Savoy's buddy offers him board and lodging for two weeks!" the auctioneer yelled', and again the crowd burst into applause. "Any further bids?" None came. "Going?going?gone! Sold to his buddy!" Byrnes shouted. A quick handshake passed between the two com? rades on the block and then they hur? ried down together. Dixon gave bis r-rescnt address as 63 St. Botolph Street, and his present "master" as J. Edgar Paradis. Colored "Parcel" Offered Following the sale of Henry Jones, colored, by Auctioneer Byrnes, who had been conducting all the sales up to the purchase of Jones, with Ledoux at times intervening to address the crowd in be? half of the "slaves" offered, Byrnes at? tempted to advertise the sale of one of his pieces of realty. The throng listened in silence as the man leaned forward and enthused on this disposition of property. But as he was about to cease speaking was inter? rupted, stepping forward and waving a hand to the audience. "My friends," he said, "I am sorry to have to do it, but this man can no longer conduct this sale. This is no place for advertising," Then, turning to Byrnes, he said: "Please step down. You cannot aid us any longer. Your usefulness has ceased." The auctioneer, without replying, re? tired, while the crowd cheered and ap? plauded Ledoux. Humans Put on Sale by A Radical in Bridgeport Special Dispatch to The Tril>une BRIDGEPORT, Conn, Sept. 10.? Sam Lavit, radical labor leader and former business ng*"t ?' the machin ! ists' union, following the Boston ex ! ampio, opened a "slave market" here to-night for the auctioning off of un-. employed persons. La vit announced that he had one hundred men who had not worked in I months who wo.re ready to step on the block and be sold. The first man offered was Harry Mills, twentv-seven years old, veteran of the World War. After waiting for i fifteen minutes for a bid, a citizen, ! who refused to give his name, gave j Mills $5. ?-? Told of Son Being Killed in France As They Land Here Mr. and Mrs. George Parker, of Salem, Mass., Arrive on Paris and Receive News of Death in Airplane Crash The French Jiner Paris, with 1,146 passengers, arrived hero yesterday I from Havre, the greater part of her ' travelers being tourists who had been abroad for the summer. Among the .saloon passengers were Mr. and Mrs. George W. Parker, of Salem. Mass., whose arrival was sad? dened by news of the sudden death of their son, Richard P. Parker, whom they had left in France for a proposed trip around the world. When Mr. and Mrs. Parker sailed | from Havre with their twelve-year-old ! daughter, Sylvia, their son, Richard, ' bade them goodby. They had arranged | to send him around the world, expect ? ing him to return home in about six months. When the Paris was four days out of port the? Parkers received a radio Baying that the boy had been injured in a fall from an aeroplane in which he and four companions were flying i from Strasburg to Paris. Throughout the rest of the voyage to New York i the anxious parents awaited further news of their son and ordered reser? vations on La Savoie, on which they had planned to return to France a few hours after their arrival yesterday. At the pier they were informed by relatives that their son had been in? stantly killed when the aeroplane fell. Richard P. Parker, who was twenty one years old, was recently graduated from Harvard.

Pershing Sent To Honor Dead Hero of France Will Sail on Thursday for Paris With Congression- j al Medal for Unknown Poilu Buried in Paris! __ i May Visit London Also' Will Return by November, However, After Inspect? ing Tombs of Our Slain From The Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Sept. 10.?General John J. Pershing has been selected by the President to present to the French government the medal of honor author? ized by Congress for the unknown sol? dier of France, Secretary of War Weeks announced to-day. Accompanied by an aide, General Pershing will sail for Paris next Thursday. The cere I mony, which will be held at the Me? morial Arch erected in Paris to the I French soldiers who died in the war, is scheduled for October 2. If the date for a similar service in England, at which General Pershing can act in the same capacity, is timed so that he can return to this country by November 1 the War Department will designate him for the honor, Sec? retary Weeks said. If the London cere? mony is scheduled for a time which would conflict with General Pershing's plans for reaching home November 1 j another high ranking officer of the army will be named to convey the Con? gressional Medal of Honor to London. Will Inspect Heroes' Graves During his stay in Europe General Pershing will make an inspection of the United States Graves Registration Service and report to the department when he returns on the o-riner in which the American dead have been concentrated in foreign cemeteries. He also will inspect the American troops on the Rhine. A special staff of officers selected from the United States forces on the Rhine will be detailed to General Persh? ing for the Paris ceremonies, and the same officers will accompany him to London in the event he attends the ceremonies to be arranged there. The announcement of Secretary Weeks that General Pershing will re? turn to this country by November 1 was taken to indicate that he would head the staff of special military ad? visers to the American delegation named for the Conference on the Lim? itation of Armament. Secretary Weeks would not affirm this suggestion, de? claring that no selection of these mil? itary experts had as yet been made. j He added that General Pershing would i participate in the ceremonies attending I the burial of the American unknown dead soldier in Arlington National I Memorial Cemetery here on Novem? ber 11. In announcing the sending of General j Pershing to Paris Secretary Weeks to-day said: "The French government has an? nounced its intention of signalizing by appropriate military ceremonies the action of Congress as but another evi? dence of the historic relations which have always prevailed between the two republics." Briand Thanks America PARIS, Sept. 10.?President Harding has awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor to the unknown soldier of France, Myron T.
