Millions Aro Ont of Work in the
Northern Slut os.
Washington, Jan. 27. . - Persons
employed in industry in this country
the ll rsl of this month numbered
3,173,100 less than the number em
ployed a year ago, tho Department of
Labor's employment service has an
nounced, on tho basis of tho Drat
nation-wide survey, which has Just
been completed by a special staff of
Director John 1$. Densmoro said
that this figure did not necessarily
represent tho number of persons ac
tually unemployed, as it was "quite
possible" that some of the worker.*
had found employment in agricultu
ral or other pursuits not covered by
the survey.
On tho other hand, some officials
believed the army of unemployed
possibly was larger than the ligures
given, us no effort wa? made to as
certain the reduction in the num
ber of persons employed in pursuits
other than those classed under tho
head of "mechanical industry."
Deduction ?Ml.? Per (Vat.
The employment service's figures
represented a reduction of 2(5.;? per
cent in the number of workers em
ployed In industry, as compared with
January a year ago, and it was an
nounced that they woro based "on
the consensus of tlgures from neutral
bodies, State? labor departments and
State commissioners of manufac
tures, stat?; and municipal employ
ment cervices, workmen's compensa
tion bureaus, employers' and employ
ees' organizations, and all other sim
ilar sources of information compe
tent to furnish same.
Michigan led tho -States in propor
tional reduction, with 82 per cent,
and Ohio and Indiana followed, with
a reduction in employment of 50
per cent each. Next came Illinois,
with ii per cent; Connecticut with
43 per cent; Massachusetts with 3 8
per cent; Wisconsin with 22 por
cent; Now York, 28 per cont, and
New Jersey, 2 2 per cent. The per
centages for otker States were not
given, ii
Hig Cut in Auto Industry.
The largest ?eroentage of reduc
tion in specific industries-fiil per
cent-occurred In tho automobllo
and accessory Industry, and this was
taken to account largely for tho
great reduction la employmont In
Michigan. This Industry, the employ
mont service announcement said,

ed In this Industry.
