I Lew II. Pnlmcr, acting Commissioner
i df tho State Department of Labor and
'Industry, mado that announcement at
today's . session of the American
Academy of Social and Political Science
In making public the result of a canvass
of 900 Industrial plants In this State.
, Mr. Palmer declared Industrial ac
j cldents In this State In two and a halt
years, ended July 1, had crippled more
men than were crippled In tho Canadian
. army In four years of war.
', The meeting of the Academy Is for
the purpose of discussing the rehabili
tation of the maimed heroes of thowar.
Pennsylvania was the first State In
the Union to realize the conditions that
inust be met after the war's end and
to take step3 toward providing employ
ment for the blind and the cripples, the
Seven months before Congress adopted
tho rehabilitation act,1 Pennsylvania,
through the Department of Labor and
Industry, had submitted questionnaires,
to 900 Industrial plants for the purposo
of ascertaining In what capacity each
' plant could employ the disabled war vet
erans, Mr. Palmer said. '
Forty-seven thousand of the fifty
thousand jobs awaiting the crippled
'heroes are In Industrial work, accord
ing to Mr. Palmer's figures. Nine hun
dred are cerlcal, sixteen arc in agri
cultural lines and 1200 arc miscella
neous. , There arc 4300 positions open for
soldiers who have lost ono hand and
B600 for those Who have lost ono eye.
Sixty-seven hundred positions' await
men with repulsive facial dfsUKurcmcnte,
.and two Jobs on'o as a telegraph op
erator, and one as a cigar maker are
being held for soldiers made totally
blind. One place is open for a man who
loses both arms and 1900 await sol

Peary, Dr. B. .Franklin Royer, acting
Commissioner of Health; Mr. Palmer
and Dr. J. George Becht, executive sec
retary of the State Board of Education ;
conducted the questionnaire campaign,
Mr;. Ialmer said.
Referring to industrial accldentR, Mr.
Palmer said the number of arhputations
resulting from accidents In this State
were 3798 In tho two and a haf years,
while In the four years of war Canada's
army had only 1200 amputations.
Eleven; hundred and fifty-seven eyes
were lost as the result of Industrial ac
cidents In the State, ho said, while up
to last Spring oply'thlrty-four Canadian
soldiers had been blinded. It was Bald.
A prediction that labor will command
high wages after the war and that dis
abled soldiers will find limitless oppor
tunities Industry was made by Frederic
"WV Keough, ofvthe National Association
of Manufacturers of tho United States.
Mr. Keough was one of the 'six
speakers today who addressed the
academy on opportunities for wounded
men. The, sessions began yesterday aft
ernoon ana wui end this afternoon.
;Every American soldier on the flrinc
e," declared Mr. Keough, "ought to
be buoyed up with the consciousness
that if lie suffers Injury, his wounds
will be healed, his return home will be
expedited, his . special occupational
ability .will be analyzed, his ambition
stimulated, and every.- effort will be
made to enable him to .gain a position
of economic independence.
Blr Serylce Appreciated
"Ho can feel tn his heart that the
hardships he updergoes are appreciated
and know that a sincere effort Is being
made for him.
"With the field of labor plowed as It

that obtained at the end of the Civil
War, when the boundless West extended
opportunities to the returning soldiers.
