Employment conditions in Wash ington during the last two weeks re mained about as they were during the previous two months, the Labor Department announced today, al though there has been a small de mand for skilled and unskilled labor. There is still a large surplus of cler ical workers In the city who are find ing It hard to secure employment. A fair sized building program is under way. which includes an eight story apartment house and many smaller projects, mostly homes. Building tradesmen are very well employed, the department said The employment service of the Labor Department today broadcast and appeal to road building contrac tors. quarrymen and others to make known their labor needs in order that the excess of employment in the bituminous mining industry may be taken care of. Bituminous mining has slacked off considerably in the last month and as a result manv thousands of miners are out of em ployment, some of whom have found other jobs. The majority of those laid off, however, are out of em ployment. Industrial activity in Maryland was slightly curtailed during the past month, hut there is very little unem ployment apparent. Building pro grams of considerable size are under way in many sections and road con struction work Is now in full swing affording employment to much skilled and cwmmon labor. In Baltimore there is some unemployment appar ent. due to part-time schedules in the majority of industrial plants. Fair-sized building programs, state road work and farming activities are affording employment to the majority of skilled and unskilled labor in Vir ginia. Industrial operations through out the state continue on a fairly satisfactory basis, very few plants being entirely closed and those plants which are working on part time schedules have not been forced to re lease many workers. The unem ployed in West Virginia consist chiefly of coal miners, many of whom are securing work on outside con struction activities. A large road building program Is under way and a great amount of building construc tion work is being carried on.

Monroe, in charge of the filling station during her hus band's absence, contributed half a gal lon of oil and some cold drinks to go with three sandwiches which had been given to them by a resident down the road.

Since the four days’ halt at Cal cutta, the planes have been making good time with two flights daily. In Constantinople, the Turks carefully inspected the planes and admired their construction. In Bucharest, Queen Marie invited the flyers to the castle and the Rumanian officers wanted to give them a banquet. The fliers are visibly weary from the terrific strain, which the fliers say Is due not so much to eight hours dally in the air, as the lack of sleep. After each flight it is necessary to examine the planes and take on fuel, always under new conditions. The fliers usually get to their hotel about eight. They bathe and eat and usual ly fall asleep without seeing any more of the stopping place than glimpses caught from the automobile, which brings them from the flying field.

Stuart MacLaren and his two companions, on their way around the world by air, arrived here today from Minato on Honshu, the main island of Japan. The next stop of the Britieh flyers is, at Hltokappu anchorage on Tetorofu Island, one of the Kurile group. The American round-the-world flyers stopped at Hltokappu, but in stead of retracing their route east ward the MacLaren party will make a detour from Hltokappu to Attu Island, the westernmost of the Aleutians, where they again will pick up the American’s trail. This detour will lead the British ers to a small lake near the southern end of Paramushir Island, the most northerly but one, of the Kuriles, instead of to the anchorage at the northern end of the island used by the Americans as a landing place. Thence they will fly to Petropavlovsk, on the western coast of the Kamchatka peninsula, to Bering Island, Copper Island and Attu. Ex cept Attu, all these stops are in Rus sian territory. Their use will shorten the oversea Jump considerably, as compared with the hop of 856 miles made by the Americana from Attu ,te Paramushir. Landings at them are possible for the British flyers, though the Americans could not come down on Russian territory because Amer ica has not recognized the Soviet Russian government.

The head of the family told in quirers he hid hoped to obtain work of any kind en route, but the priva tions which they had gone through during the tornado and the subse quent trip east had forced his courage to the lowest ebb. "It’s no use,” he remarked to a by stander. “I am willing to do any thing to support my family, but no one seems willing to give me a chance. I’m going back home." But he had forgotten that “home” did not exist for him any more, and his wife, crying bitterly, reminded him of that fact. The daughter beg ged the gasoline keeper's wife to al low her to stay with her until she could find a job. but the parents ob jected to any auch separation, and after they had succeeded in rectify ing the engine trouble, the trio, a khaki tent strapped to the running board of their car, turned about and headed toward Rockville and “home.” Himes Not I .earned. No on© asked them their names and they did not confide them to their benefactors.

REPARATIONS VOTE (Continued from First Page.! city today. The delegation is headed by Prof. Alberto de Stefanl, minis ter of finance. The newspapers commenting today on the conference continue to ex press doubts as to its practical re sults. t The Messagero thinks the re establishment of cordiality between France and Great Britain Is merely apparent, since, it says, the two coun tries disagree on the fundamental program of the conference, namely, on the application of the Dawes plan, and especially on the participation of Germany in the conference and whether it will be necessary or not to draw up a new protocol ac ceptable to Germany. The Italian delegation, it is as serted, goes to London, with instruc tions to act as a conciliatory element between the two divergent view points. The foreign policy of two/ great countries Is, therefore, in Germany’s opinion, dictated by an active group of French Jingoes and war makers who are not even a majority in their own cotintry. But it must be admitted that the Germans are none too active themselves in hurrying necessary leg islation. Their feeble internal poli cies, unwillingness of the cabinet to take a stand for or against the Na tionalists. or - the unwillingness of the Nationalists to approve or disapprove flatly the Dawes report and the general tendency to use the foreign situation for small domestic issues, have half paralyzed German initiative and ren dered the German credit situation even worse than it would be naturally, and have created a generally bad impres sion. Whether German statesmen are un aware, Indifferent or helpless, certainly Jhey do not'make a great effort to as sist foreigners in the attempt to show that the German economic situation will be worthy of foreign credit, once political barriers are removed. Foreign Minister Stresemann. after consenting to give an important state ment to one correspondent, walked with it for flye days in his pocket, and finally lost it altogether. It seems, somehow, that this characterizes Ger man post-wax statesmanship The sit uation is muddy. POINCARE GIVES WARNING. Says Hcrriot Must Not Concede Too Much at Parley. BY CONSTANTINE BROWN- By Radio to The Star and Chlcajo Daily New*. Copyright. 1924. PARIS, July 14.—Premier Herriot will go to London tomorrow fully empowered by the French Parliament to represent France in the London conference, but he has tbeen warned not to make too many concessions. Such Is the gist of Poincare’s five-hour epeech Thursday.’ The Senate will give a vote of confidence to the French pre mier, and he no longer will be able to say that the intrigues of his political op pfcnents prevent him from pleading the cause of France. Poincare’s speech was mild and there was an apparent effort to spare Herriot. It was more in the form of a lecture to inexperienced officials In trusted for the first time, with an Im portant mission whom he wanted to warn to be careful to elude the "traps of British diplomacy.” Even Poincare’s criticism of the new Franco-Britlsh memorandum was mild. He merely pointed out that in case Germany Intends to evade the application of the experts' report France’s freedom of action will be very much handicapped. Poincare urged the government not to allow Germany to send representatives to London to discuss the application of the experts’ plan. “GermaJiy,’’ he said, “should be asked to come and say definitely yes or no, because If the Germans are permitted to dlsouss the plan they will never Apply It,” 900 Taken in Safety Drive.
