THURSDAY EVENING, HUN LOSSES AS OBITUARIES Are Gradually Being Made Known Through the Newspapers Berlin, Sept. 11. —Belated news of the losses incurred by German families and organizations, military or civilian, as it is verified, is be ing placed in the newspapers in the form of obituaries. The Baron von Wangenheim family recalls its dead in a great black-bordered advertisement in which are named twenty-two mem bers of the family have fallen for the Fatherland, all except two of them, officers. Similarly the family Baron von Puttkamer, little known in Ger many and not as large a family as the Wangenheim, announces the loss of nineteen members, ranging from non-commissioned officers to lieutenant colonel. Individual regiments, divisions and naval units, are daily letting their individual losses be known, an,d they make a formidable appear ance, and attest to the bitter se verity of the war. In this connection it is interest ing to note estimates of the Ministry of Finance about the cost ot the war to Germany. It amounts to about $36,500,000,000, according to the peace-time rate of exchange. Magnanimous The head waiter (fishing) I dreamed last night, sir. that you grave me a £5 note.

PERKINS FAVORS PROFIT SHARING ON FAIR BASIS Only Solution to Industrial Unrest, He Tells Civic Federation New York, Sept. IL—Profit-sharing on a frank and fair basis was de clared to be the only solution of the present Industrial unrest in a speech delivered at the annual meeting of the National Civic Federation here to-day by George W. Perkins. Mr. Perkins said he was convinced that labor was entirely willing that capital should have Its "fair reward and proper protection," but that there were too many Instances In which capital nad demanded "improper pro tection and had taken exorbitant re ward." At the same time Mr. Perkins de nounced boous systems as doing more harm than good and as stirring up trouble rather than alleviating It. The giving of bonuses, he claimed, caused employes to feol that the employers were making vast sums of money out cf which a sop was thrown to them to bribe them Into feeling kindly dis posed or to ward off a demand for a general Increase in wages. Proposes ThU Scheme As an alternaUve Mr. Perkins pro posed a definite detailed scheme of profit-sharing which he said had been adopted by some companies with which he was connected and had proved most successful. He described this plan as follows: "First—Every business has. first of all, to earn operating expenses, de preciation, and fair returns on hon est capitalization. "Second—l believe that every busi ness should consider that the com pensation paid employes Is for the purpose of earning a snm of money sufficient to pay the above-mentioned Items. "Third—l believe that any profits over and above such sum should, on some percentage basis, be divided be tween the capital used In the busi ness and the employes engaged In the business. "Fourth—l believe that In neither case should these profits be Imme diately withdrawn from the busi ness; that they should be left In the business for a reasonable length of time, to protect and increase Its finan cial strength and safety; that. In the case of capital, its share of these profits should be carried to surplus; that, in the case of employes, their share of these profits should be dis tributed to them In some form of security representing an interest in the business, and that each employe should be tequlred to hold such se curity for a reasonable length of time, say three to five years. "Fifth:—l believe that the em ployes' share of these profits should be allotted to them as nearly as pos sible on the basis of the compensa tion they receive. Up to date, this has proved to be the best method." The employer who objects to profit-sharing because he la making so much money "that he is afraid to let even his own employes know how much money he Is making" was declared by the speaker to be "more than any ether, responsible for the serious differences to-day existing be tween capital and labor foi, with the growing Intelligence of the masses, how can he expect such a situation to continue? Every year, yes, every day. it becomes clearer and clearer that such a condition will no longer be tolerated and must speedily pass pass away. Would it not be better for him to use some intelligent fore sight and meet what clearly are to be the Immediate future demands of public opinion?" Co-operation Needed Perkins said that the history of the relations between labor and cap ital could be traced through the term successively used to denote the man who worked for a wage and the man who paid the wage. First it was "owner and slave," then it became "master and man." to-day it is "em ployer and employ" and to-morrow, Mr. Perkins declared he believed It mutt be 'partners,'" in conclusion he said: "Since the beginning of time no country has ever haa such an oppor tunity to extend its trade, increase its prosperity and better the ma terial condition of every one of its ptoplo as nas the United States of America at this hour. The only fac tor missing is that cf close co-opera tion hero at home among ourselves. It seems Inconceivable that we will fall to realize where our weakness lies and fail to adopt the one and only remedy for It. In the strenu ous competition with the rest of the world that this country Is on the eve of facing could we have a stronger weapon than complete co-operation between capital and labor at homer' JUMPING INTO THE MOVIES One hears the most astonishing things about the prices that are paid to moving-picture stars, when one discovers that they are true. A pretty girl worker on a Los Angeles "lot" for $lO a day as an extra woman. A studio needed a woman to do a particular bit, and found that she filmed well. So It was decided to make her a star. Her contract call ed for $l5O weekly for the first six months, rising to SSOO at the end of the second year. After the sec ond picture she demanded SSOO at once and SI,OOO weekly at the year's end. A "type" hired a tarlcab to hurry him to a lot on which a picture was being "shot." Ordinarily types ride on street cars, for the best of them are rarely paid more that sls a day. The United States Senatorial type can be i.ad In quanities at $lO for the day's work. But this type was late and feared to lose his Job. A bawling manager met him at the door. "Ton—you—** began the manager. Then his eyes fell upon the chauf feur. "TWr Just the type I wmxrtJ~'he Shouted. Ttome with me!** Eventually the chauffeur con sented to rat* his cab hack to the garage and walk on in a scene as a type of something or other. The chauffeur filmed well. There fore he is now being paid SIOO weekly, though his heart Is said to be with the taxlcab. A bartender made a few dollars one day shaking up cocktails before the camera. His features came out with cameo clear ness. and he followed the director's orders with the careful obedience of a good child. That made him a film actor.

Can't give you defi nite date now, but will let you know later." Laclede will pay tribute to Gen eral Pershing on his arrival, not with the pomp and ceremony that, marked his reception in European capitals, but with a "good old-faßh ioned Missouri home-coming," ac cording to the committee arranging for his reception. Plans for the Geneial's entertain ment include reunions with old schoolmates and chums, trips to the old swimmin' hole on Muddy creek and to the old Pershing farm. The homecoming will also mark a reunion of the Pershing family. James Pershing; of Chicago, the General's brother, and Miss May Pershing and Mrs. Bessie Butler, of Lincoln, Neb., his two sisters, will gather at the former Pershing home during the General's stay. The reception will not be without a military side. Decorated heroes of Missouri will form sui honor guard. Adjutant General H. C. Clark, of Missouri, will have charge of the military reception. Governor Frederick D. Gardner will deliver an address at the cele bration and other State and national officials have been invited to attend. Among old acquaintances who will greet General Pershing are "Aunt" an Hewett, who made pies for .n when he romped barefoot around the countryside, and "Aunt" Louisa Warren, who claims to have been present when the future mili tary leader was born in a railroad section house several miles from here.
