We all know that early in October

were made, reports were read, and
committee* appointed. Then this
significant gathering of men and
women from all over the country took
an adjournment. What has been done
alnce then? I think 1 can answer
this question, and some other queries
which might arise in any thinking mind
over this disturbing state of affairs.
Briefly, as a starter, let me say that
this recent conference has not been

have met, discussed the subject, passed

out to ward off these bad
times. The standing committee of the
conference is engaged on a study of
this subject, and expects to put in
and to be able to put into effect, so
far as Its powers go, the measnres
necessary to prevent or alleviate these
recurring depressions. One way that
has been much talked about is through
public works. If the various kinds of
public works which city, state and na
tion are going ahead with all the time
could be done a little less during
periods when private Industry is boom
tag and a little more In times when
private industry has slowed up, this
procedure might tend at any rate to
make the cycle of depression when it
comes a little less severe than it
otherwise would have been. People
who have studied the situation estimate
that a plan of this kind could be
worked out which would not Involve
the postponement of sny public work
which it was Important to do soou,
yet would serve to make a period of
industrial depression at least 30 per
cent less severe than it would others
wise have been. A measure like this
is well worth while looking Into very
carefully and trying to bring about

The other feature of periods
employment is the immediate emer

thousands of our fellow citizens need
work and, through no fault of their
own but because of sn Industrial situa
tion beyond their control, can't get
It. The unemployable we have always
with us, the man who would rather
do most anything else than work, and
we are tempted to think of all people
ovt of work as being like him. In
times like these, however, we must not
forget that there are enormous num
bers of capsble workmen, eager to
work at anything that will enable them
to maintain themselves and their
1 families, yet unable to find a job.
I This is everybody's business. Al
though the situation is worse in some
parts of the country than in others,
It is a country-wide condition, and
can be met adequately only by coun
try-wide actiou. Everyone can help.
In the first place, city administra
tions can help. They can speed up
public works which have got to be done
•oon anyway and which, if people get
a little busy, can be done now rather
titan later. Public employment
bureaus can be started and operated
skillfully and vigorously, so as to
flud all the Jobs there are and to fit
into them people who are qualified
to do the work. The United States
employment service offers its help, in
chiding the franking privilege, to any'
such bureau. It can be brought to the
attention of the people in the city that
private work that has got to be done
anyway should be undertaken now,
rather than "sometime." It can be
made clear to everyone In town that
even little odd Jobs done nmv help
the situation, since the men who do
them get little pay that they wouldn't
otherwise have got, and so add to
th«' purchasing power of the country.
Many cities have carried on sustained
"spruce-up" campaigns with the re
sult that the old town never looked
so well-groomed and spick and span,
and that many people who were in
hard luck were helied out cft a very
Everyone Can Help.
And you and I, what can we do?
We can help out someone who is
in hard luck, who can't get a chance
to earn a living that he is capable
of earning, and who would give his
eye teeth If he could get the oppor
tunity of earning. We can help him
out, perhaps with clothes, perhaps
with a place to live in for himself
and his family, perhaps with some
regular meals, even if we haven't any
extra cash that we could devote to
the purpose. The American workman
Is a pretty nelf-rellant Individual.
When he loses his Job he will take
care of himself as long as he can,
economizing, doing odd Jobs, living on
his savings. When he can't last any
longer this way he will take from
people from whom he has a right to
ask It. because they are' relatives or
real friends, because he has helped
them before when they have been out
of luck or because they know that
If the conditions were reversed he
would help them. He gets help too, per
haps. from his church, his lodge, from
groups to which he belongs. This sort
of thing enables him to hang on a
while longer In the class of those
who make their own way, and the
American sticks in this class Just as
long as he can manage to. It is only
when he has exhausted every resource
and knows not where to turn that he
(inally drops into the class of those
de|Mndent upon the public. The men
and women of America who have jobs
can help those who haven't to keep in
the class of the self-sustaining and
keep out of the class of those who
have to throw themselves on the pub
lic for help.
And we can help also, you and I, by
having work done now that we other
wise might not have done until next
spring. The only cure for unem
ployment Is, of course, employment,
and each In his little way can help
to bring this about. We live in a big

Mining Engineers Hit Hard.
The mining engineers are the hard
est hit. F. F. Sharpless, secretary of
the American Institute of Mining and
Metallurgical Engineers, said that it
was Impossible to determine the num
ber of such engineers out of employ-
ment, but he would not be surprised
if the number reached 5,000.' Mr.
Sharpless said that relief would be
experienced in the mining industries
soon with the resumption of opera
tions in the big copper mines. The
Institute normally has 10.000 members.
The Institute's data on unemploy
ment revealed many cases in which
men in normal periods earning from
$2,500 to $15,000 a year were driven to
accept minor Jobs, such as watchmen,
or were out of work altogether.

might properly apply their efforts.
Many Seek Jobs.
The employment service conducted
by the Federated American Engineer
ing Societies Is free. Mr. Brown said
that 3,165 men In different parts of the
country were on the active list seek
ing employment. During the early
part of January 125 positions were
filled, and for these 600 men were
Mr. Gately said that Instead of
going over prepared ground a careful
study of possibilities was made, and
these fields were found to offer new
opportunities for the engineer: Indus
trial, covering manufacturing, con-
consulting work bank-
hunting, insurance, department
stores, filing and publication. Mr.
Brown gave the number of men reg
istered during 1921 at the Federation's
Employment Service as 1,905. Of
these, 1,365 were placed in positions.
More men were placed In December
than In any other month, and more men
were registered In June than In any
month, the lew mark in this respect
being In November.
It was said that nationally the civil
engineers ranked next to the mining
engineers In numbers of unemployed,
with the electrical engineers third.
