Recent increas es in wage of British workmen have been the subject of very serious de bate Ay economists, employers and others as one of the bed-rock prob lems of reconstruction, in the sense that the nation may stand or fall bv it. Some say the question which con fronts British industry is whether the pendulum of wages may nor. swing so high that production for competition with rival nations .will become unprofitable and then Impossible. "Higher wages for all" is the de mand of the organized and unor ganized workers. With It Is the cry for "shorter hours, better conditions of living, freedom to meet the em ployer on a plane of business equal ity, as two business men meeting to- got her." "More concentrated work, more in telligent work and we will try to meet you," Is the response from many em ployers . The question has been seriously raised here whether England in the past has owed her pre-eminence in the world's industrial markets to un derpaid British labor. That view was expressed by Frank Vanderlip, New York Banker, when he returned to America a few weeks ago after spend ing several months in Europe. There are Bhrewd business men who contend that British labor hes not been cheap, but considered solely a& an item in the cost of production has been relatively costly when com pared with the labor of the United States. The topic came forward at a recent informal gathering In London of American and British captains of in dustry. Somp were men who com mand great enterprises, who think in terms of millions of pounds and brigades of workmen. Their talk dealt with the iron and steel produc tions, shipbuilding, the various In dustries and manufactures of ma chinery, motors, sewing machines and the like. The concensus of' opinion among them seemed to be that the average tkllled English workman of pre-war times paid a small wage, got more money for what he did than the aver age American artisan, that the labor cost of producing commodities in thi? country was greater than for produc ing similar goods in the United States.

Hostess House where they are given a thorough physical inspection, teeth examined and any necessary work to be done on them 13 here done. After this they are given the opportunity to bathe, change their clothing and are assigned a bed in one of the spick and span dormatof les. Their life from then on until the time they board the boat is chiefly occupied in learning the English lan guage, sewing, and exercises and recreations of various kinds in the mornings and with their husbands in the afternoons. 1 Ten days is the average time each girl spends in this camp. From It she is taken directly to fche; boat where she again meets her husband, he having been transferred from his organization, to a casual company so that they can take the same boat back, That the government is doing everything in its power to make their , life while still in the army a happy ; one is very evident.
