Works During Depression.
Washington. —Governors and mayors
throughout the country were asked by
President Harding In a public state
ment to organize In each community
machinery for the correction of eco
nomic conditions along lines worked
>ut by the unemployment conference
here.
The conference, the President de
clared, had demonstrated that condi
tions could not be met properly with
out local co-operation. He announced
:hat a central agency would be main
tained here under auspices of the con
ference to give national co-ordination
co the rehabilitation effort.
The President’s statement said:
“The conference which I recently
summoned to Washington to advise as
to the unemployment situation has
demonstrated that an unusual volume
of unemployment exists, and that pend
ing the recuperation of trade the sit
- uation cannot- be met, in due regard
to our obligations and necessities, j
without a much more than usual or
ganization throughout those states and
municipalities where unemployment
has reached considerable proportions.
“The conference has recommended
a plan of organization which has had
the support of commercial, manufac
turing, professional and labor repre
sentatives of the country. It is high
ly necessary that more accurate
knowledge should he had through
such organization of the volume and
necessities of the unemployed. It is
essential that the co-operation of all
sections of each community should he
brought into action behind such or
ganization to provide work and assist
ance that we may pass through Hie
coming winter without great suffering
and distress.
“It is of national importance that
every community should at once un
dertake such organization in order that
the nation may be protected as a
whole. Moreover, the thorough com
-1 mitment to such a task Is sure to start
a thousand activities which will add to
our common welfare.
“I therefore appeal to the governors
and mayors of the nation that they
should take the steps recommended by
the conference.
“In order Hint there may be unity
of action by all the forces which may
1 be brought to hear, whether govern
! mental or private, tiie unemployment
conference is establishing an agency
in Washington through which appro
-1 j priate co-operation can be promoted
i and through which reports on progress
I and suggestions may be given general
' I circulation and co-operation. 1 trust
1 this agency will lie supported In this
endeavor.”
1 Final plans for Hie Central Employ
ment Agency are completed, confer
ence officials said, and Secretary Hoo
ver has made an announcement out
-1 lining the character of t lie organiza
tion. Colonel Arthur Woods, former
police commissioner of New York, is
! 1 understood to be under consideration
* | for appointment as head of the agency.
1 | Advisability of a federal bond issue
• to create a fund for making loans to |
> aid municipal public works in years of j
depression when jobs are scarce is mi- !
der consideration by subcommittees of
tiie conference.
> I Such a proposal has been suggested
( to the conference as part of a plan for j
| permanent safeguards against bad
’ years for the nation’s workers. No
estimate of how many millions of dol
! lars would he required for such a fund
I has been made as yet. The plan con
stitutes one of the recommendations
of the conference advisory committee.
Steps have been taken by city offi
cials of Boston and Cleveland to put
into effect the emergency relief pro
. gram adopted by the conference. Sec
retary Hoover announced, adding that
’ he bad been informed unofficially that
Portland, Ore., and Milwaukee were
working along the same lines.

Paris.—Paris, famous for iti impres- j 1
sive ceremonies, has just witnessed the I
most significant and dramatic scene f
the city has known, and certainly the
most important symbol of amity be
tween two nations since the end of the
war.
The United States, personified by
General Pershing and more than 500
upstanding, magnificent appearing
American soldiers, stood before the
Arc de Triomphe to honor France’s j
“Unknown Soldier.” Frenchmen and |
Americans alike found their eyes dim
med with emotion over the setting and
the ceremony.
Pershing’s speech brief though it
was, was masterful, coming from the
lips of such a soldier as he stood at
the tomb of France’s unknown poilu.
General Pershing’s words not only
were a tribute to France’s hundreds
of thousands of dead, but they also
were a soldierly, straight from the |
shoulder appeal which may be echoed j
in the Washington arms limitation con- ]
ference next month.
Standing erect, though appearing 1
slightly older than when he stood be- j
fore tlie tomb of Lafayette here in !
July, 1917, General Pershing spoke di
rectly toward France’s symbol of sac
rifice lying below him, while France’s i
highest officials, among them President !
Mlllerand and Marshal Foch, listened I
a few feet away.
“In your heart there is malice to- j
ward none, but charity for all,” the |
American general told the Unknown \
Soldier of France. “It is this spirit, j
tills alone, which will establish confl- |
dence among nations. You fought |
against the calamity of war but your |
work will not be complete until the
burdens which preparation impose are
lifted from the shoulders of all peo
ples.
“You gave your life for peace but |
your gift will be barren unless the
generous spirit of unselfish co-opera- |
tion arises to take the place of hatred, j
“Your allied comrades remember \
with deep emotion how you cheered {
them as you fell. They praise your I
gallant deeds while they renew their j
vows of allegiance to the principles j
for which you fought.”
The hour of 9 in the morning found
the Place de la Concorde filled with j
soldiers whose equipment scintillated |
In the radiant sun. Lining the famous |
Champs Elysees along ‘its entire stretch j
of a mile to the Place de I’Etoile in i
the center of which stands the Arc de I
Triomphe were French infantrymen ;
with bayonets glistening. Fully 10,(XX) ;
French troops lined the Place de la I
Concorde and the Champs Eylsees, but j
they left the place of honor to the 500 !
Americans who surrounded the arch j
as a guard of honor.
Grouped tinder the arch were the |
| ministers of the French government, .
I Ambassador Jusserand and other high I
j ranking officials, and with them Mar- |
i shal Foch. The civil officials were
| high hatted and in conventional garb, i
| and their funereal appearance was in
slurp contrast with that of the gold
; hatted marshals and generals wearing
i their medals on brlllian uniforms,
j Soon after these notables gathered ’
ar. automobile bearing General Per
shing, Ambassador Herrick and Gen.
H. T. Allen, commander of the Ameri- .
i can army on the Rhine, arrived, close*
! ly followed by President Mlllerand and 1
j Minister of War Barthou, who had !
| passed before the troops grouped about j
j the Unknown Soldier’s resting place. |
1 General Pershing followed, deliver- j
j ing in a strong voice th i words which ;
| the French government, will order i
i printed and posted throughout France, i
; At the conclusion of his speech the j
| general pinned the Congressional Med- 1
; al of Honor, the highest tribute the
i American government can pay, on the
small silk cushion lying on a table be- i
i side the tomb. As lie did so he ut
i tered these words:
“In the name of the President and
the people of the United States, as a
token of our perpetual belief In the j
righteousness and justice of the cause !
for which you died, as a mark of re
* spect and admiration to your country
; men, I place this Congressional Medal
| of Honor upon your tomb.”
Minister Barthou thanked the Amerl
i can government in behalf of France
I and sketched the co-operation of
America in the war and France’s prob-
I lems for the future.
The ceremony ended, the officials
■ stood with their hacks to the Arc de
| Triomphe while the troops passed. i
ITALIAN JOBLESS INCREASE
Release of Agricultural Labor Swells
Unemployment Ranks.
Washington.—The increase in the

August is due to the realese of agri
