U. S. STEEL HAS
108 MILLION NET
AND8H0URDAY
Gary' Old Bleat About Los Through
Shorter Day Shown Up
By Facts
Complete elimination of the twelve
hour day in the plants of the United
States Steel Corporation became affec
tive on February 1 last, Elbert H. Gary,
chairman of the board of directors, in
formed stockholders in the 1923 annual
report this week, which showed gross
and net earnings, exceeded by only one
other peace year in the history of the
world's premier industrial company.
Other steel manufacturers have readjust
ed working conditions on a similar basis
so that the industry as a whole - has
finished the task of establishing the ba
sic eight-hour day, undertaken at the
behest of the late President Harding.
The wage rates of employes whose
working day was reduced from twelve
to eight hours were so adjusted as to
afford compensation equivalent to an in
crease of 25 per cent, in the hourly and
base rates previously paid, and the wage
rates of all employes reduced to or con
tinued on a ten-hour basis were advanced
10 per cent, to equalize unbalanced con
ditions in rates brought about by the ad
justments in . the wage scale for em
ployees reduced from twelve to eight
hours, Judge Gary said in his report,
which is being forwarded to stockholders
today.
Of the $146,824,504 increase in the
total pay roll last year resulting from
the change to the shorter workday ap
proximately 60 per cent, arose from em
ployment of additional men and 40 per
cent, from increased wage allowances
where hours of service were left un
changed. The number of additional em
ployees required by those companies
which were operating on an eight-hour
basis at the end of 1923 was 17,117, an
increase of more than 10 per cent.
High lights in the corporation's in
come statements for the twelve months
ended December 31 last, are herewith
presented:
The total value of business transacted
by all companies during-the year, as rep
resented by their combined gross sales
and earnings, equaled $1,571,414,483,
compared with a total of $1,092,697,772
in 1922.

Gompers Lauds Poppy
Day for Veterans
A. F. of L Leader Hopes Movement
Will Make Better Citizens
New York, March 29. The cordial
endorsement by Samuel Gompers, Presi
dent of the American Federation of La
bor, of the National Poppy Day move
ment of the Veterans of Foreign Wars,
to raise funds with which to help dis
abled ex-service men, was expressed in
a letter made public by the organization
at its headquarters, 3' Union Square.
"No more beautiful custom would be
come associated with Memorial . Day,
than to make the wearing of a poppy
part of the ceremonial tribute to our
soldier dead," wrote Mr. Gompers. "The
movement has my most hearty endorse
ment. It is my earnest hope that Poppy
Day not only will keep fresh our appre
ciation of those who served in the World
War. but will make us more mindful of
our responsibilities to our country."
No Wage Reduction
in cotf on Mills Now
Fall River, Mass., March 29. Re
plying to published reports that a
wage reduction in Fall River cotton
mills was pending a means of re
opening many plants at present closed,
Charles E. Smith, secretary of the Fall
River Cotton Manufacturers' Associa
tion, issued a statement tonight deny
ing that wage reduction had been dis
cussed by that body. - .
"There is no foundation to any ru
mpps of wage reduction having been
discussed by the members of the cot
ton Manufacturers' Association, and
there are no meetings of the associa
tion scheduled for such discussion," Mr.
Smith said.
Curtailment in Fall River mills at
present is estimated at 80 per cent.

NEW ENGLAND
MILL WORKERS
PROBING SOUTH
Send Mass. Investigator to Study
Southern Labor Casts
Charles G. Woods of Northampton,
Mass. commissioner of councilation of
the department of labor assigned to New
England, is in Georgia making a tour
of the south to study industrial condi
tions in the southern textile mills. While
is has been, said that Mr. Woods trip is
to investigate the allegations that south
ern mill operators are able to produce
more cheaply than northern millers by
paying lower wages and operating longer
hours. Hugh L. Kerwin, director of coun
cilation of the department of labor at
Washington, denied that any such pur
poses motivated Mr. Woods trip. Mr.
Kerwin said that Mr. Woods does not
intend to make any report, and that the
only reason for the trip is for his own
edification to enable him to see how la
bor is handled in the south so that be
might use some of the same principles
in handling situations in New England.
It has also been rumored that Mr.
Woods' trip was to collect data for the
department of labor on working hours
and wages of employes in southern
mills. Such data have already been col
ected by the department and are included
in the report of the bureau of labor sta
tistics, w:th which bureau Mr. Woods
has no connection. ' '
That southern mill workers are em
ployed longer hours than New Eng
land mill workers is shown in a report
of the department of labor for 1922. Of
a number of women spinners investi
gated by the department, 527 in South
Carol ma received under twenty cents an
hour, 342 in Alabama, 212 in Georgia,
155 in North Carolina, while in all New
England there were but 33 women spin
ners of those investigated who received
so small a compensation.
The average wages for women spin
ners in Alabama was $0,179 an hour,
in. Georgia it was $0225, in North Caro
lina, $0251, in South Carolina $0206,
while in Maine the average wage was
$0,331, the lowest for any state in New
England. The pay for other employes
bears a substantially similar relation.
