THE SERVICE C IIARC.E.
A number of restaurants in New York
city are trying out a substitute for tip
ping. As explained on the printed
menu cards, these restaurants "proiiose
to replace the tip with a service charge.
At the end of each week the various
waiters receive the total service charges
appearing on their checks. A charge of
ten per cent (in units of five cents) for
service will be added to the amount of
In one restaurant in which the results
of this method were carefully watched
and tabulated for a time, it was found
that the eight regular waiters received
in a week an average of ". in service
charges. The management paid them
.12 in wages. There was a variation of
!10 between the maximum and mini
mum earnings of that week. This was
explaine.l partly by luck the number
of patrons sitting at particular tables,
or an unusually large proportion of
five-cent ami ten-cent service charges.
An attempt is ma-le to give every waiter
eipial i nances at favored tables by ro
tating them on a schedule differing from
day t' day and meal to meal. Although
there are more low service charges than
there would be low tips, it is also true
that the service charges are steady and
be counted on, while tips could not
The only possible justification of the
old tipoins system to pay for extra
courtesies and attention is hardly a
sound one socially or economically. A
similar incentive to gracious service on
the part of the waiter is found in the
new system, however, for every addi
tional dish which a smiling waiter can
; persuade his customer to order adds a
little to the service charge. On. the
