LOW WAGES BREED DISEASE Chicago, 111. The recent experiment by the Health Department on feeding people for less than II) cents a day brings this comment from the Union Leader, official paper of Chicago's or ganized street car men: "Did. you notice any hodcarriers, street car men, or husky growing child ren among Dr. Robertson's diet sriuad? Ceitainly nut; all of them follow light occupations and do not hum up physi cal fuel like a worker at hard labor, or i healthy, growing child who is racing ind romping in the open and can do jus tice to three square meals a day. "Yet the diet squad averaged :il cents a day tor each lor loon. "Now, none of the male members of the diet squad was breaking pig iron or carrying pianos up two or three llights of stairs, and certainly none of its wom en members was working m a munition factory ten hours a day. "Notwithstanding these favorable conditions, under scientilic supervision. the cost for food for each member of llie diet squad was 111 cents a day. "Applied to the average family this figures if I.. "..I a day, or $1 )..- a week, and $."(l.".7.'i a year. And for food only. "I lien the question arises, can the average housewife buy food as cheaply as the purchasing agent of the diet squad? Has the average housewife the necessary money to buy in like quaitti lies? We think not. "However, figuring a yearly food cost basis of $."(m.7.", the average worker should have a wage upwards of $.' a day the year round to meet household ex penses and he and rear his family in a maimer consistent with Aiueiicau needs " moiig our iinoi gauicd woikeis thousands ;uc icceiviug a wage of less than i'i a da. "How do they manage to exist in these high cost limes on such a wage' 'fake a look at their 'home' surround ings for the answer. Figure out what the future of a country must be where such povert and neglect of human wel fare is permuted to exist. "If $."(:( 7.1 a year is the dead line for food cost in Chicago, below which a fam ily of live can not be sufficiently fed, then the only ginranlee of a properly ted citizenship is to estahhsh a wage I hat will meet it. "General Gnrgas, in his successful campaign against disease in the Canal Zone, found the key to the situation by doubling the wages. I le has been advo cating this remedy throughout the coun try ever since, yet none of the health de partment heads of our big cities seem to have grasped the significance of Gen eral Gnrgas' discovery.

After !) days wages will be increased to $:.MUi(), and after another !M) days this rate will be raised to $28. A feature of the agreement is the abandonment of the old percentage sys tem, which provides that employes shall be paid a certain amount after they take in, during the day or week, a stipulated sum.

CAN'T ICNI) CO.MI'KNSATION UAW. I laiiishurg, Pa. 'I he state compensa tion boaid has ruled that compensation agreements in cases where there are per manent injuries may be suspended but not terminated. Jonathan Clouser, of Middletown, sus tained an injury that made nccessar) the amputation of a thumb at the first joint of the left band and the index finger at the second joint of the same baud. Clouser's employer was insured in the state fund and asked for an order ter minating the compensation benefits on the ground that Clouser's hand had healed and that he had found eniplo) ment at higher wages than he received before he was hurt. The board declined the request for the reason that the em ploye may not be so fortunate later. The benefits are suspended, hoccr, but if during the period of BOO weeks during which compensation is paid for disability Clouser's injury should prove a handicap he can ask the board to reinstate the benefits.
