tome of the world's largest factories
hauled overMhe coals at a meet-
ins; In the -Washington irvlrur High
FJchool last night by Louis Marshall,
lawyer and member of the New York
district draft board, who said that some
of these1 men had perjured themselves In
obtaining exemption for employees on
tho ground of IndlsDensablllty In Indus
'try; that the draft board had been "un
intentionally deceived," and that from
-t now on the mere affidavit of a manufac
turer that an employee was essential
would not' bei sufficient) the assertion
roust be proved.
( 'The, producers of war material gath-
- ered In the 'high school on Invitation of
.the Bureau of Aircraft Production of the
.war Department and the United States
Employment Service to receive Informa
tion which would help them to meet labor
problem and Increase their output.. This
they received In abundance. One of' the
speakers. II. E. Miles, chairman of
the division Tit training of ,the
Federal Employment Service, revealed

Marshall Speaks Ills Mind.
After hearing, Mr. Miles and seeing the
pictures Mr. Marshall, who la a -member,
of tho law. firm o. Ouggenhelm, Unter-
, tnyer & Marshall, spoke, his mind In a
way that .seemed to- astonish a large
. portion of hla audience. . N
Mr. Marshall said the occasion de
minded frank words.
"There has been,"he said, "consistent
perjury on the part of some ot the most
important manufacturers, in that .they
have said- that certain laborers are in
dispensable to their Industries. They
I aro not Indispensable. These, applica
tions have been made to the district
.draft board uf New 'Yorle-because of the
Inertia that controls the average mind.
"You manufacturers have got the men
ad you want to keep them. You say
' they are Indispensable because that Is
maier than looking around.' You would

Mating that a certain man who operates
a drill press-or constructs the wings of
airplanes or airplane parts and the like
ja no essential that he cannot be re
placed bjr a' woman or by a man from
. one of the four deferred classes.
"We know now what we didn't fifteen
.months or a year ago,, that men hereto
feTre claimed to be exempt are not In fact
entitled to- deferred classification. We
tiave been told In the past, tor Instance,
that a man working on a micrometer re
i quires tremendous skill and ability. We
llnd that a woman cah operate this ma
chine better than a man after, a week's

'JeWed us. This Is strong language, but
truo. We have received Information
.which we had' iro'rlgnt to expect from
you. These- pictures we have seen to
slight prove that 'we are not receiving
that cooperation In the employment -f
women that has been achieved In Eng
land, France and In some places In tills
country, too.
"Last Thursday our draft board had
' conference with thirty-live manufac
turers In your line. On-a of them, a mu
nition manufacturer, admitted that he
'could substitute women for men In 76
per cent of the work, but hadn't lone
Jt, It would require effort, change, the
opening of n training school, something
tjlftt tho factory was not accustomed lo.
S(en Shirking Their Doty.
"Yqu are golngalong the paths of
least resistance. You are employing men
of fighting age In their best years for
lighting, men who Instead of being- at
the front are shirking In the shops.
That's what t amounts to shirking. I
assure you t)tat hereafter you have got
to find your working men and women
where you can do It without injury to
the fighting line.-
"If the war Jteeps on we shall have to
resort to eonscrlptlon of labor as well
fjt soldiers; that will be the solution In
the end."
The manufacturers who had at silent
tinder all -this castlgatlon applauded for
the first time. Mr. Marshall told of a
factory owner who had given him figures
of the constant coming and going of
workers at his plant
"I said to him," Mr. .Marshall con
tinued, " 'You haven't' got a plant ;'
you've got a parade ground.' The man
who shifts about from factory to fac
tory the place to put him Is right at
the front; he'll get some discipline then."
This provoked both handciapplng and
cheers, proving, that Mr. Marshall had
touched a responsive chord.
"My reaqtlon' from what we have
heard and seen to-night," the speaker
concluded,! Is a. practical one. Take to
heart what Mr. Miles has shown you.
After tho war you'll have to, meet the
keenest competition. To meet It you

He said that although there was much
talk of peace actual peace was so far
away that war production must be In

G. F. Fobte, Broker, and Two
Sons Accused With Two
Officials. ' '
Gilbert F. Foote, of Fpughkeepsle,
until recently head of the brokerage
firm of At'water, Foote and Sherrlll,
wTilch failed In April with liabilities
of nearly. 11,000,000 and no assets, was
arraigned yesterday with his two sons
and two draft board officials, before
Judge A. N. Hand In the Federal Dis
trict court on Indictments charging con
spiracy to violate the draft law.
Through their counsel. Abram J. nose,
the flve entered pleas ot not milltv.
-Ten days were given to Foote In which
to demur or take, other .action. Pending
nnai pleading, tne bankrupt broker was
placed under 110.000 bond. The ball of
his sons, Gilbert F. Foote, Jr.', and
Andrew G, Foote, was fixed at 15,000
eaclu Albert A. Slmnson. a nifmlwr
of the local draft board at Poughkeep-
sie, ana unanes w. swirt. or the dis
trict appeals boards at White Plains,
were the other prisoners. John 8. Wil
son, also a member of t lie Poughkeepsle
draft board, and Charles C. HahCtrans
portatlon manager of the Barrett Manu
facturing Company; of this city, who
aro named as co-conspirators In the In
dictments, have yet to plead.
The alleged conspiracy had to do with
the Illegal classlflcAtlon'of the two Foote
boys. Mr. Curtis charged that the
young men, through the aid ot draft
board officials and Hahl. received ad
emption from active service In the army
and were classified as filling essential
war occupations as employees of '(he
Barrett Manufacturing Company.
The additional charge was made that
young Andrew procured exemption on
the ground that he was a farmer and
connected with the Agricultural Reserve
Army stationed there. Andrew, so Mr.
Curtis said, recently married a Miss
Mollvary, a .daughter of a member bf
the Barrett 'Manufacturing Company.
and was a student In the University of
i-ennsyivania immediately before he
filed his claims for exemption. It is
asserted In the Indictment that In re
turn for engaging In the alleged con
spiracy, Simpson, Wilson and Hahl re
ceived checks from time to time' from
the firm of Atwater, Foote and Sherrlll,
purporting to be profits on entirely
mythical stock transactions.

Dr. Royal 8. Copeland, -Health Com
missioner, celebrates his birthday to-day
by appealing to tho public to adopt the
babies and children left, fatherless and
motherless by the influenza. The epi
demic Is practically over, there being but
417. new cases reported yesterday.
"We Have between three and tour hun
dred ba'bles and children, that must have
homes,; their mothers and fathers died
from' influenza," Dr. 'Copeland mid.
"They are all sorts of. babies., black-and
white, girls and boys, and many of them"
really beautiful children, and I'm sure
they would bring' 'habplness Into any
home. They must be cared .for In the
immediate future."
At present these children' aro being
kept In hospitals until provision can be
made for them. Those who' have been ill
of Influenza are .In the Seaside' Hospital
at New Dorp, Staten Island, and those
who have been exposed to' the disease
but who have not contracted It so far
are being kept In the Seaside Hospital
j at Coney Iauand to await developments.
They .will be kept until, the period of In
cubatlon Is past.
The babies and children that are not
adopted will be given over' to the care of
Institutions, each according to the
perents' religious faith.',
To use Dr. Copeland's expression, he'd
"like to kick some of tha heatless land
lords" because, jthey will not turn on the
heat In thelr'rented bulldlnga where there
Is Illness -until threatened by the Health
Department and the police.
"It's outrageous he way these land;
lords treat their tenants." he said. "Now7
as much as'ever, the sick need heat. And
if they don't get It tuberculosis Is likely
to develop In many cases. Wo are gath
ering evidence for the prosecution of a
number of these heatless landlords. In
most cases Investigated the heat has.been
turned on Immediately wen they were
notified that It had to be ; thus they saved
prosecution. '
Because Tuesday was election day, Its
figures were, given 'out by the Health De
partment slm6ltaneously. with Wednes
day's. Tuesday'M comparatively large
number, 1,094, Is due to "holdovers" by
doctors from Sunday and Monday, Dr.
Copeland explains. Wednesday's figures
may be considered tho true criterion of

"I have received private Information
that one magazine alone at Morgan
holds 560,000 pounds of TNT," said Mr.
Humbert yesterday. "I am informed
that If another accident such aa took
place a few weeks ago should explode
thla tremendous store of high explosive
the results to New York city would be
disastrous. It Is a chance we canuot
afford to take. .
T have called for a statement from
the .chief engineer of the Department of
pocks as to what would be the probable
result to ine city s water mains in case
of 'an explosion greater than the recent
blowup, and It appears from a prellml.
nary survey of the possibilities that the
whole water supply systfm might bo
wrecked. Moreover, I have been In
formed that the blowing up of a mag
azine containing 550,000 pounds of TNT
might shake down many buildings here
In the city. The engineers tell me that
the Woolworth. Singer and other mod

are many old time buildings that would
be apt. to crumble.
