GARBAGE MEN BETTER PAID THAN 8KITMCTI 1?A1I.WAVM1?W Cleveland Gives Common Laborers More than Railway Employes Receive ' ' (Press Information Service) Cleveland, July 24. rThe city of Cleveland is advertising widely for common laborers to handle the 'city's garbage at 72 cent san hour, with permanent and tseady employment. Skilled laborers in the garbage plant are offered as high as $6.75 a day. By a striking coincidence in the same papers and often on the ' same page are advertisements of railroad com panies for skilled machinists, boijer makers, electricians, car repairmen and inspectors, to take the place of these high-class employes who are striking against the wage slash just ordered by the railroad labor board. These skilled employes, upon whose faithful services the safety of every traveler on the railroads ""depends, have been cut as low as $3.98 a day. The very highest paid shop mechanics have just, been ordered by the decision of the U. S. labor board to work for less money than the city of Cleveland is paying its common unskilled labor in the garbage department. Indeed, " these unskilled workers, without any ; responsibility whatever, are receiving within 5 cents a doy of the $5.81 average wage of railway engine service employes, the highest paid group in the employ of the rail roads! Skilled labor at the city gar bage plant is receiving nearly a dollar a day more. ' - J low , wages paid skilled railway em ployes and thevwages paid to ordinary unskilled workers by private employ ers who have a regard for the wel fare of their men provides an answer 'to the question: "What is wrong with " American railroads?" The transpor tation industry of the country de mands "such a high degree of skill and exacts such rigorous fidelity to duty, often with the penalty of imprison ment for a mistake resulting in the loss of human life, that the very best human material obtainable is neces sary for its safe and efficient opera tion, v This class of workers cannot be secured nor long retained on an unskilled garbage maa's wage- UNDERWOOD, DEFENDED CHEMICAL FOUNDATION .

' - RECRUITING HONORS GO ' TO FOURTH CORPS AREA Fort McPherson, Ga., July 22. The recruiting honors this year easily go to the Fourth Corps Area. Last year this corps area led until the very end when the third got slightly ahead. We have investigated then methods and find that the general plan they followed was that generally followed throughout other corps areas and not due to any special stunt of their own. We attribute their success to two things: First, making circu lars, letters and publicity attractive. Their success emphasizes the import ance of having this work done by a man who knows how to write a f ore- ful letter that will bring a response. Too much of the circularization in the recruiting is couched .. in military terms with technical expressions that is of a dead and stilted form that does not appeal to the imagination of civilians. Secondly, the Fourth Corps Area covers a territory (North and South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi and Tennessee), which has always been distinguished for its military spirit. The South has more military schools and colleges than any other section of the coun try. Although an agricultural popu lation and with a big percentage of the population consisting of blacks, who do not go to these camps, never theless, military camps nnd a re sponse in the South that is' particn larly strong.

EN RAISING BANANAS (Leesburg Commercial) E. H. Mote, one of Leesburg's most progressive citizens, is making ex tensive improvements in his property. Treasure Island, a large island in the center of Lake Griffin. This : island consists of 116 acres but he has only 55 acres improved. Mr. Mote recently purchased 1250 banana plants of the most improved species and has set them out on the bland. It is contended by many peo ple that the banana, will produce as prolifically" in Florida as any place in the world and the owner of the isl and is going to give it a trial and see for himself if that be true.' He be lieves that the soil of the ground that he owns in Lake Griffin is as well suited for the culture of the banana as any other in the state. If Mr. Mote makes a success of the raising of this fruit it may give an impetus to banana culture in Lake county. He purchas ed the plants from P. N. Shanibarger, of Pine Castle.
