Each Case to Be Decided on Its Merita
Is Announcement of the
. War Board.
A minimum wage to be applied
throughout Industry will not be estab
llsned at this time by the war labor
board. In making this announcement
the board said wage controversies
would be considered individually as
heretofore. Hearings on the question
of a minimum wage had been held and
the board was expected to establish a
minimum In the near future.
The board's decision was set forth in
a unanimous resolution declaring it
would be unwise to "make orders In
this Interregnum based on approved
views of progress in normal times,
which under war conditions might se
riously Impair the present economic
etructure of our country."
Declaring the period of the war not
to be a normal period of Industrial ex
pansion, the resolution says the "em
ployer does not expect unusual profits
or the employee abnormal wages. Cap
ital should only have such reasonable
return as will assure Its use for the
world's and nation's cause, while the
physical well being of labor and Its
physical and mental effectiveness in a
comfort reasonable In view of the ex
igencies of the war should likewise be
assured." Employers and workers
were urged to compose their differ
ences in accord with the principles
laid cty ,wn in President Wilson's labor
To Recruit Labor for Mines.
James Lord, the one-time nresldont i
of the mining division of ths American
Federation of Labor, has been appoint
ed head of a special section of the fed'
eral employment service in charge of
recruiting and supplying labor for
mines, according to announcement by
the department of labor. He will co
operate with the fuel administration,
the National Coal association and the
United Mine Workers of America.
' Shoo Men Increase Wages.
The Brockton, Mass., Manufacturers'
association granted shoe workers, oth
er than cutters, a 20 per cent wage
increase, to be paid as a war bonus.
The advance affects nearly 20,000 op
eratives in the vicinity. , '
There was little change in the cut
ters' strike situation. Their continued
absence forced 2,000 more operatives
out of work and it was estimated that
nearly 7,000 were idle.
Co-ordinating the Nations.
Those of us who are bewailing the
passing of the choral society and chor
al singing in general may be heartened
by remembering that music is pre
eminently a social art ; there is nothing
that so ministers to the sense of soli
darity, of brotherhood, as singing in
a ohorus under a good leader, who ac
complishes things, or playing in an or
chestra with a director able to bring
about a fine ensemble. ,

Blllle and Jimmie Will Take Military
"I am mighty sorry, Uncle Dan, that
this is your last night with us. Can't j
you stay longer? We boys are having,
a peach of a time," said Blllle. '
"Well, if you get more out of It in
the way of pleasure than I," said Un-,
cie Dan, "you are going some."
"Blllle, I have been talking seriously'.
with your father and mother Bbout,
sending you to a military academy and
they asked me to talk with you about
it" '.' - I
"Whoopee I" Blllle screamed, like a
wild Indian. '
"Now, hold your horses," said Uncle
Dan, "and listen to me. You know I
sent my boy, Howard, to one of these
schools for a year when he was about
your age. He was narrow chested,
stoop shouldered, rather loose Jointed;
he had the big head and needed dis
cipline and physical development. He
was growing fast and I wanted him to
be strong physically."
"Say, Uncle Dan," said Blllle, "I be
lieve your description of Howard fits
me pretty well, eh?"
"Well," said Uncle Dan, "to be frank
I think it does; you need the same
thing. Howard did not like it at first. I
am told for a few weeks he had 'rough
sledding,' but after he found that the
only way was to obey orders, he caught
the spirit of the institution and liked
it We did not see him for about six
months, then he came home for a few
days. We were astonished at his ap
pearance. He had gained about 20
pounds In weight, his muscles were as
hard as nails, he stood as straight as
an arrow, he was courteous, conslder-

ate and manly. His awkwardness had
disappeared. The change was wonder
ful and It was all to the good. Here
is a photograph showing 'before and
after taking,' and I am sure no patent
medicine advertisement could beat it.
"Well, mother and I were delighted.
That was ten years ago, and Howard
says the year he spent at the military
academy was the best year of his life.
"Now,.' said Uncle Dan, with great
earnestness, "when such training does
so much good, makes better citizens and
at the same time fits a man to defend
his country, why should not Uncle Sam
furnish, this training at the govern
ment's expense? The government has
the rieht to call anyone to serve in
case of war, and without training,
man is worth nothing as a soldier. Un
cle Sam has splendid new training
camps that will soon be available for
the purpose, therefore, here is double
reason why the Chamberlain bill for
compulsory military training should be
passed at once, so that every boy phy-
jslcally fit may have this training and
not leave it for his parents to pay for.
On account of the expense, not one boy
in 50 can take the training now. I am
I glad that you can do so. These big
'crops and big prices, I find, make the
ifarmers rather 'cocky,' and that the
best is demanded by them."
Blllle was up with the lark the next
morning, more excited and enthusiastic
than ever. He had a plan. He knew
Jimmie owned a colt worth $100 ; that
he would make almost another $100 on
his potatoes if they turned out well,
and that he had from his previous
savings, bought a $100 Liberty bond.
Blllle's plan was to have Jimmie cash
in and go with him. He was disap
pointed to find that Jimmie would still
lack about $300 of having enough to
see him through. His lip quivering, he
said: "I'm mighty sorry to leave Jim.
Uncle Dan was silent a moment or
two, then he asked Blllle to go down
to the orchard and get him some ap
Iples to eat on the train. While he was
gone, it was arranged that Uncle Dan
and Mr. and Mrs. Graham would ad
vance the money necessary so that
Jimmie could go. When Blllle returned
he was told about it. He ran to the
phone and called Jimmie, saying :
"Come on over, run just as fast as you
can, I've got the greatest news yon
ever heard of." - -- '

Jimmie and a German Bov Clash-i
Must Do Three Things to Save
It was a warm evening, so Uncle
Dan went out to a lawn seat under the
spreading branches of the great tree
that suggested the farm's name of Oak
Hill. Blllle and Jimmie had been lay
ing for him, so Uncle Dan was cap
tured by the boys on short order.
"Say, Uncle Dan," Blllle began. "We
had a red-hot argument at school yes
terday with Carl Newman. Carl said
that German schools were miles ahead
of our schools and that no one could
come up to the educated German. Well,
Jimmie got hot under the collar and
handed it back to him good and plenty.
Jimmie said If their education taught
them to torpedo Lusltanias, sink hos
pital ships, murder hundreds of wom
en and children, make slaves of
the Belgians, poison wells, destroy fruit
trees and commit all sorts of crimes,
then we did not want that kind of
education here. What do you think
about It. Uncle, Dan? I told Jimmie
you spent a lot of time in Europe and
knew all about schools, so give us your
"Well," replied Uncle Dan, deliber
ately, "the German schools are very
thorough ; they furnish exceedingly val
uable and practical instruction. The
industrial training given there is prob
ably the best to be found. The schools
as a whole, however, in my opinion,
appeal to the head only, and never to
the heart. The aim and trend is to
make the individual blindly submis
sive to the Prussian plan of world do
minion; they teach that it is the des
tiny of Germany to rule the world, and
that to the glory and advance of Ger
many, In this plan, all things must give
way; that the kaiser as head of the
state, can do no wrong if he carries
forward the plan of world Control.
Some of the greatest teachers and
preachers even defend and Justify her
heartless crushing of Belgians and the
many other atrocious crimes she has
committed In this war. Thank God,
our American education reaches both
the head and the heart. It is an edu
cation with a soul, and we must main
tain the high ideals we have fixed. In
a word, In Germany, the people are
taught that they exist for the govern
ment, while here the government ex
ists to serve the people."
"Just wait a minute," interrupted
Billli. Say that over again slowly, so
I can. write It down."
Uncle Dan, smilingly, compiled.
pMe exclaimed : "Now, we will hand
Carl, you i know," continued Blllle,
"has avery smart father who keeps
him posted on the German arguments.
Carl said our government was only
an experiment anyway; that It would
not last twenty years, and that it
might burst up any old time. Jimmie
asked him if Germany was so mighty
good, why they did not go back there
to live."
. "Our government will go on forever,
won't it Uncle Dan?"
"Now," said Uncle Dan, "you are
raising a big question, and one that
has troubled me for years. Our gov
ernment is still in the experimental
stage ; 1 fact, it is the greatest ex
periment ever undertaken, and if pop
ular government Is to be successful, a
few things must be done, otherwise, to
paraphrase the great Lincoln, the gov
ernment of the people, by the people
and for the people, will perish. It is
my firm conviction," said Uncle Dan,
In a very impressive manner, "that if
our country is to go on, as we hope
and pray, we must very quickly do
at least three things, and I will name
them in the order of Importance as it
appears to me:
"First, adopt compulsory universal
military training of all young men
physically fit before they reach the
age of twenty years.
"Next require that every foreigner
who comes here to live must, within a
reasonable time, say a year, declare
his Intention of becoming an American
citizen and take the necessary steps to
do so, thereby, from that moment as
suming all the obligations of citizen
ship of our country, and that means he
must defend our flag upon equal terms
with our native born, and if he Is not
willing to do Uus, he should be sent
back from whence he came."
"That's the stuff," exclaimed Billie.
"And, finally, enact such legislation
as will make voting compulsory. Pop
ular government Is based upon the
participation of all and the rule of
the majority, and democracy cannot
continue and be successful unless we
live up to the spirit of the institu
tion. "The first step, however, is the pass
ing of the Chamberlain bill for univer
sal military training. If you will get
the leading citizen, and especially the
editor of your paper, to write personal
letters to your congressman and both
senators, urging their support, it will
help enormously.
"J see by the morning papers," said
Uncle Dan, "that the Kotary clubs of
the entire country, the llvest most effi
cient organization to be found, have
unanimously decided to get back of
the Chamberlain bill and give It loyal
and enthusiastic support They will
work with the Universal Military
Training league to accomplish this im
portant piece of legislation, which will
do more than anything else to make us
a real nation with a common view
point bring us back to sane living, and
teach ns the patriotism of service." .

of the 744 Boston trade school girls,

In a recent talk in Boston she warned
