All the Department Officials
Have Set Themselves to

MAKES AN ADDRESS
TO LABOR OFFICIALS
Mentions Measures Adopted
by Recent Legislature.—
Labor Measures That Were
and Were Not Enacted.
Richmond, Yn., Ala.v 2.—;(By the As
sociated Press). —"North Carolina is
blessed with able, forward-looking ex
ecutives in its business life, anil is
rapidly progressing along all lines of
industrial endeavor, and in govern
mental circles all departmental offi
cials have set themselves to the task
of keeping pace with the progress of
events, " AI. 1,. Shipman, commissioner
of labor and printing, of North Caro
lina, declared today in addressing the
tenth annual convention of Govern
mental Labor officials of Hie 'United
States and Canada.
"Our department steered its barque
through tiie legislative maelstrom' of
1923 and reached harbor with a new
bureau and an increased appropriation
for the further development of a state
system of employment in conjunction
with the United States Employment
Service." said Mr. Shipman.

“The aggregate number of applica
tions for employment iu the six big
offices in operation during the year
1922 was 28, 980, of whom 23,317 were
] males and 5.009 females. The total
number of persons applied for by etn
plojers during this period was 24,720.

•• rtie new bureau created in the de
partment by act of the General As
sembly of 1923 will concern itself with
the welfare of the deaf citizens of the
state. Its activities are not to he
confined to securing employment. It
is proposed, in addition, to obtain
facts, information and statistics touch
ing the conditions in the life of our
deaf population with a view to their
general uplift. A capable deaf man
has been placed at the head of the
bureau and will devote his entire time
to the development of the bureau
along all feasible anil proper lines.
“Another humanitarian measure en
acted by the General Assembly of this
year was a mothers’ aid hill, to he
.administered by the department of
public welfare. An appropriation of
$30,000,G00 per year, to be matched by
the counties, was made to aid worthy
mothers who are deprived of the sup
port of their husbands. This will
enable widowed and dependent moth
ers to rear their children at home in
stead of surrendering them into other
hands. This meritorious measure,
and the act creating the bureau of the
deaf, mark a distinct forward step in
the state's plan for curing for its de
pendant children ond aiding a class
of unfortunates who deserve the spe
cial assistance of the state in over
coming physical handicaps.
“North Carolina has no new crop of
labor laws to report,” Air. Shipman
continued, “nor amendments to those
already in operation. During tlte re
cent session of the General Assembly,
Inhor appears to have contented itself
witli opposing the enactment of olijec

hills for its future protection. The

“The General Assembly declined to
pass a hill giving mortgages priority
over laborers' Hens, and rejected a
proposition to amend the garnishee

with favor on the hill to reduce the

nursing no special grievance on ac

“Compared to the protection ac
corded labor in other states, the laws
of our commonwealth relating to in

interest compnred with that manifest
