United States require In tho opinion of
Henry Ford, Detrlot's mllllonnlro nuto
mubllo mnnufnctuicr. Iio told the Fed
eral Industrial Commission this today.
And ho declared that tho methods which
nio In -oguo In his factory would per

Sing Sing prison nnd making good citizens
Ford wns ono of tho most lmpreslvo
witnesses yet heard by tho commission.
Ho very cmphntlcally denounced charity
as a moans of relieving distress. And, ho
Insisted that under tho profit-sharing plan
In. operation In his plants every ono ot
his employes hns been revolutionized.
"I havo very llttlo use for charities and
philanthropies as such," he said. "My
Idea is, aid men to help themselves. Near
ly all arc willing to work for adequate
icward. We havo all kinds of crlpplas
in our employ, nnd they are making good.
Wo have a great many who have been
In prison and who nro outcasts from
society. Every ono of them is making a
good showing and is gaining In self-respect
and strength of character."
Ford explained at length tho prollt-shar-
Intr p'nu. His firm paj-n wages 15 per cent.
above those paid In other plants, he paid.
and In addition eligible employes (and tho
majority of them nre) participate In tho
profit-sharing plan. Tho working day Is
eight hours Instead of nine, as formerly,
and no ono receives less than $3 a day
for his labor. Complete records uro mailo
of every employe and his work Is care
"Our first purpose In establishing this
plan," Ford sold, "was substantial Jus
llco to our cowoikeis, without whom ue
could hav' accomplished noth 117 Wn I al
had great success from tho financial point
of view. So wo put this plan Into effect.
Wo do not regard It ns In any sense a
gift or a charity, but only duo reward
for service. No man Is Influenced to
change his way of living or hl. habits
In order to qualify under tho profit-sharing
plan. Yet, whereas at ' the start CO
per cent, of the men participated lu tho
plan, today nearly every man past 22
c:it old employed by 113 Is benefited
"Tho Increased efficiency of the men Is
from K to 20 per cent.," ho said. "This,
too, In tho face of a reduction of tho
working day by ono hour. Dally absentees
from work havo decreased from 10 per
cent, of the working forco to 3-10 of
per cent. Tho number ot men lcnvlni?
the employ of tho company sine ctho plan

"Fear nnd worry In tho struggle prop
erly to provide for homo and dependent
with tho dread of what might happen If
tho Job Is lost, prnctlcnlly havo been elim

charged without groit cause.
U. S. EMPLOYMENT AGENCY.
1 Congress will be asked by the Federal
Industrial Relations Committee to creato
a truly national employment agency.
This much now Is certain as a result of
tho hearings. Every witness so far
has agreed there are Jobs enough
In the United States for everybody who
will work. They admit, however, the dif
ficulty Is In bringing the man to the Job.
All Insist that this should be the duty of
Another suggestion, which so far finds
tho commission divided, la to create a
national board of conciliation and media
tion for Industrial corporations that do
an Interstate business. Many suggestions
havo been made that the Newlands-Erd-man
act be extended to give the present
board, whose Jurisdiction now Is limited
to railroads, power over all corporations
In the Interstate field.
George W. rerklns said the rate of
wages paid by the Steel Trust today was
the highest In the history of tha steel
Industry. Excluding the salaried execu
tive employes, the averago Is J2.SE a day.
Wherever possible, ho said, the com

Tho kidnaping was carried out by the
flrsf-jmr men with the greatest secrecy
and the only students recognlred when
Mathews wns hustled Into the wnltlng

McDonald and Jack Fceney. Poveial po

ing snphi thnt n big touring enr wns seen
maklngn corner down In "The Neck"
shortly liefore daylight nnd this Is the
only clue tho second-year men hnvo to
their missing lender.
Mathews lives with Hnrold N. Cudney,
nlsn a Chlcngonn, nnd the two men, with
six others ns gunrds, wero studying hniu
In preparation Tor the mid-year ex
amination. "I wonder If the fellows have got Mnr.
shnll?". pnld Cudney, nt nbout 1:30 a. m.
referring to tho president of the freshmnn
"If they haven't they'll lnnd him bo
fore the day's over," said Mathews, and
the next moment there was a suspicious
step on tho stairway.
Cudney nnd the other guards leaped
to the door, but It swung open suddenly
and n half dozen husky freshmen
crowded In. The second-year men wero
no match for the Intruders nnd Mathews
was hurried quietly out of tho houso be
fore other sophomores could bo called
to tho rescue.
Mathews Is now hound hand and foot
nnd guarded In somo deserted stablo In
tho southern part of the city.
At daylight, tho news spread nnd tho
city was soon nllvo with wrathful second
year men, nnxlous to vent their splto
on their rivals. President Marshall, of
tho freshmen class, had been safely hid
den, however, nnd Mathews' cohorts
could not get n cluo ns to his where
abouts. Tho gleeful freshmen nro confident that
tho "sophs" will never find their leader,
who, they say, was stowed away from
prying eyes so quickly thnt ho doesn't
know yet what happened to him. If his
hiding place Is discovered tho "sophs"
will havo to put up a hard fight to re
cover their leader as tho freshmen havo
a strong guard watching him.
The "sophs" will leave no stono un
turned to find their leader. If bo Is still
among the missing tnnlcht lliov win .
sort to desperato mensuies. even to trying
to kidnap Marshall, tho freshman leader.
They nro nH good as beaten In the bowl
fight without the kidnapped president, tho
freshmen say, but If they can mnnqgo to
lay their hands On tho leader of their
traditional enemies they will wlpo out
some of today's stigma.
An oxtra guard was put over Marshall,
who Is said to bo a safe distance from tho
vicinity of tho Unlverdty, ns it is feared
there would ho serious troublo If tho rival
classmen would clash today.
