TELLS Hr JOBS
Mergers And Automatic Machinery ]
Tut Men Out Of Work,
New York—Inasmuch as thrj
number of jobs is decreasing all |
the time and 'hr number of workers |
increasing, where in tiie future still i
men find enough jobs to go around? i
asks Roger \V. Babson in the March !
issue of the “Forum."
Mr. Bnbson makes the problem |
clear rut w hen he writes, "Every !
time two companies merge, one less I
manager is needed. Mergers are j
coming thick and fast. The ten
dency will be to reduce the mini- '
ber of executive jobs. White collar
men will have to hunt harder for
work. While this reduction Is tak
ing place in the office force, there
is another cut in the number of;
workers In the factory, lor a dii
ferent reason. The thing which Is !
likely to lay off even more hands is j
the continued development of auto
matic machinery. Hence there will!
be fewer people needed both in tlie
office and the mill. Moreover, la- i
bor-saving machines and methods ■
will be applied to mental as well as j
manual labor. This will mean less!
demand tor clerical workers. Final
ly, the growth of chain stores,!
chains of department stores, and
group buying, will reduce the field
open to salesmen. All these in
fluences will create a big problem."
"It is true," Mr. Babson admits,
"that these labor-reducing influ
ences haw been in plav for many
years." But, lie continues, “thus far
however, they have been largely
offset by the growth of phenomenal
industry-the automobile industry.
Had it not been for the develop
ment of the automobile industry,
we probably would not have had the
great expansion we have witnessed
in highways and other building, in
public utilities, in the volume of
money, in the national income, in
wages, and in profits. The United
States now produces about seven
eights of the world's output of mo
tor cars, in itself. Is enough to make
our country more prosperous than
the many countries whlcn share the
oilier one-eighth of the business.
“The latest available statistics
show that already there are as
many automobiles in the United
States as tlnire are telephones.

23.127.315. Capital Invested met
| tangible assets): $2.080.657.6114.
Wages and salaries: $586,823,733.
Number employed directly and in
directly: 4.063,666. Even such fig
ures. however, fail to measure the
industry fully. It is practically im
possible to count the myriad activ
ities which owe their origin and pro
gress to the automobile. To automo
bile industry has been the main
spring of our recent prosperity. Had
it not been for this or some other
new invention, we might now be
struggling with a fearful unemploy
ment situation, affecting all kinds
and grades of labor from chief exe
cutive to apprentices.”
And now according to Mr. Bab- j
son's calculations this mainspring j
shows signs of running down. “The i
factor to study,” he says, “is the |
percentage of annual growth. Dur- ,
ing recent successive years, these
percentages of annual growth in
registrations have run about like
this: 23 per cent; 17 per cent; 14
per cent; 10 i>er cent; 5 per cent
These figures interest me more than.]
•any mystical saturation point. They i
show me that for the five years un
der review the curve shows signs
of rounding over. Merely from these |
figures alone we would be led to
conclude that the mainspring is ]
beginning to weaken.
Mr. Babsons hope for a new I
mainspring lies in the develop- J
ment of the flivver airplane to the j
point where travel by air will be i
as common and natural to the av- j
erage person as is present-day nio- I

of transferring the prohibition bu

As Assistant Attorney General
Mrs. Willebrandt will be charged
with 11 ic task of helping enforce a
law whose underlying theories
clashed sharply with her own con
ception of personal liberty at the
time she took her present position.
She admitted her own ideas were
so dilferent to those of the pro

when people along the Pacific
coast brought the rich wine home
with their groceries. Intellectually,
she did not believe in prohibition at
first. That much Mrs. Willebrandt
admitted to Die United Press
It was only after she had been
on the Job for a while that Mrs.
WUlebrandt became entnusen over
the task of punishing violators of
the prohibition act.
After she had been offered n
$140,000 bribe to ease up on ft case
she was prosecuting, the woman
official became furious and threw
all her energy into the battle to
make the eighteenth amendment a
working part of the constitution.
Her ire was aroused and she
minced no words in calling enforce

somewhat by the "fanatics" with

ON SNAKE VAIS
Entomologist Brimloy Explodes
Many Popular Belirfs Regard
'News &, Observer.)
A stir:ke cannot sting with its ton
gue, nor docs it ever take its tail in
its mouth and trundle like a hoop,
declared C. S. Brlmley, assistant en
tomologist of the Department of
Agriculture in the weekly agricul
ture radio talk made over Station
WPTF, The joint snake story in
which the snake breaks up and com
es together again, is untrue as far
as snakes are concerned said Mr.
Brimley, but this story, he said, is
true of a lizard that occurs in the
southern states that is legless, and
reaches a length of two or three
feet. The joint snake, he said at
times lose its tail, but the pieces
never grow back together.
The claim that a snake will open
its mouth and allow its young to
run into the throat to escape an
enemy lias never been seen by a
reputable naturalist said Mr. Brim
ley. The speaker said the nearest
approach to this story that he had
ever seen was an occasion when
some boys were feeding a lot of
young garter snakes to a black
snake which were too thin to be
kept, down by the neck muscles of
the black snake and crawled out of
■Ihere is also n false idea preval
ent that a poisonous snake can be
irritated so ns to poison itself by

story the speaker thought qriginat

spreading adder, which when at
tacked flattens itself on its back
the practice of securing evidence
herself. Often she directed raids
and told the federal agents just
what information she needed to
prosecute her cases.
For a time, and perhaps even
now, Mrs. Willebrandt aspired to a
federal judgeship. She wanted to
return to her home state of Califor
nia as the lirst woman federal
judge. The lack of a vacancy de
nied her this honor and now it ap

Of the 42 kinds of snakes known
to occur in North Carolina, only six
are of the venomous type, said the
speaker. These are the coral snake,
the diamond, banded and ground
rattle snake, trfe cotton mouth moc
casin and the copperhead. Those of
agricultural economic importance
are the black snake, coachwhip,
chicken snakes,, corn snake. King

HE FOUND THE WAY
From Despondent Illness to Robust
Good Health in a Few
“When your stomach is out of
order you are sick all over." That
is a true saying, but many who are
ill do not know where the trouble
is. I was that way, said Mr. Wtl- J
Ham Reinheimer, 113 Northampton
Avenue, Bethlehem, Pa.
I seemed to be Cull of pains and
terribly nervous—pains in ray side
and back and up under the ribs.
My stomach felt sore and I was
belching gas and had heartburn
after every meal. Some said it
v,as nervous indigestion, but it did
not slop although I tried many
medic-ipes. The trouble was I was
going atNl the wrong way—treating
the effectraatead/it th.e.yause.
When I began to use Munyon's
Paw-Paw Tonic I got relief right
away, it relieved the indigestion
by helping the food to digest. (The
dried Juice of the Paw-Paw fruit,
from which the medicine gets its
name, is one of the most effective
aids to digestion that nature pro
vides and is known to every doctor
and druggist). Its mild but effec
tive cleansing of the system, im
proved the blood and restored my
nerves so that I was able to sleep
and get the rest I needed.
I soon found that 1 was able to
oat. heartily of anything I wanted,
without fear of distress. I havu
gained a few pounds and more
energy and strength than for a
long time; also I have gotten rid
of a bad taste in the mouth that I
used to have.
I From my experience I can gladly
recommend Munyon's Pa"V-Paw
Tonic as an Ideal Tonic Laxative,
Di^estant and Blood Medicine.
