M. Jewell, presi- dent of the railway employes depart- ment of the American Federation of Labor. The employes' argrument against the railway executives' decrease proposals wcro summed up by Mr. Jewell. FOOD Mr. Jewell's exhibits, redesigned to show that many railroad employes were not receiving sufficient pay to properly support their families, in- cluded one table which compared the amount of. food recommended by to 8.35 adults with actual purchases of fifty shop crafts -workers' families in fifteen states, each of which was the equivalent of 3.S8 adults. It show- ed that tho workers at the end of each month had 80 pounds, less of meat, fiah, eggs., milk. etc-, than Pro- fessor Jaffa outlined, that they lacked 40 pounds of flour, cereals, rtce, etc.. 40 pounds of-potatoes. vegetables and fruits, 7 .pounds of butter, oils and rats and three pounds of sugar. CfcOSE FIGURING DONE "My final table represents the ab- stract 'of1 expenditure accounts for February for 118 employes- scattered through states west of the Mississippi said Mr. Jewell. "The returns cover practically all occupations .cov- ered by Clerks. Brotherhood of .Railway "The average earnings for. tha IIS men were with which they met average expenditures of In these figures there la an apparent sav- ing of 2 cents a'month, possible an- nual savings of 24 cents and hope that after a century of.toil would be saved for a rainy day." JEWEL'S STATEMENT CHICAGO. May against the wage reduction proposals submitted to the railroad labor board by railway executives wero summed up today by B. M. Jewell, president of the railroad employes' department of the American Federation of .Labor. He declared that for the board to or- der a wage 'reduction now would only bring the dispute ovor new national working agreements back before the board for determination "in a con- troversy of redoubled bitterness, and we would have a condition of utter chaos in the transportation Industry." Negotiations now in progress on new working agreements to take placa of those recently set aside by the board, "could never result in an agreement before the day of judg- Mr. Jewell declared, if new wage schedules are established now and attempts are mado to negotiate the new agreements on the basis of a reduced wage. "Wo submit." Mr. Jewell said, "that the board can not an intelligent and fair decision as to wage rates except It reaffirms the prevailing schedules, until the new agreements have been fixed and promulgated. HUMES WANTED FIRST "The reason for this is obvious, Neither carriers nor employes can know what wage schedules mean or amount to until they know the rules by which those schedules are to be applied. We must have our yard- stick before we can measure our cloth. .Manifestly railway workers can not be expected or asked to accept a wage schedule when they have no means of knowing exactly how much they are to receive under that sched- ule. It is equally, manifest also that to establish a new wage schedule before the new agreements are ne- gotiated would preclude the possibility of our reaching any agreement through those negotiations. "If the railroad managements are not utterly blind to their own selfish interests they will join me in request- ing the board.to withhold its decision In the pending matter until ye have the new agreements. The delay will be no longer-than the carriers them- selves make it. From the day the railroads were returned to private ownership we have endeavored to se- cure a speedy determination of the question of agreements and the car- riers rejected every overture we made. The responsibility for the delay lies solely with the carriers. REASON FOR CUTTING "For this board to make a decision in this wage case, unless that deci- sion be to reaffirm existing sched- ules, before working out now agree- ments would be to provoke the em- ployes anew and to perpetuate strife and misunderstanding. "We -have shown there is no econ- omic justification for a reduction in the wages of railroad labor- We have shown that there havo been no wage reductions In the basic industries that are comparable to the transportation Industry and have demonstrated that, they are made the servants of the public instead of the playthings of Wall street. PLEA OF CARRIERS "Throughout these proceedings the carriers have made but one Teal plea their financial inability to pay. The ability or inability of the carriers to pay the present wage rate? has no bearing on this case, and .can. have no consideration in its determination, but railroad management has so much of this phase of the trans- portation problem and the public has been permitted to hear so little else that we can .not ignore the issue'. "Justice to railway employes, to the -carriers and tho public is not contingent upon the ability of the car" riers to pay their labor costs, and a return to normalcy in industry and .commerce does not wait upon a re- duction in wage -schedules. SOFT HANDED WARNED real issue in this case ip the wages of man vecgus the wages of. money, and the time has come for the people of this country to know and understand that the wages of men will never go back to pre-war pov- erty levels. "It Is time for those who do not toil with their .hands to understand and accept the principle of the liv- ing ivage and to realize that the hu- man factor in industry is the predom- inant, vital force in the modern civi- lized world. "Therefore we can rest our case se- cure in the belief that the rank and file of railway employes which we represent can not and will not be deprived of any measure of the econ- omic rights which are theirs be- cause they have earned them and be- cause they deserve them." Pleading life is a "constant strug- gle, with the odds alwayjj against for the unskilled labor on the railroads. George Eastty, vice presi- dent of the Brotherhood of Railway and steamship Clerks, Freight Han- dlers and Station Employes, Wednes- day urged the railroad labor board to refuse any wage reuction at .this time. "Capital never goes cold and- hun- he said, "We are here plead- ing the cause of human beings who need food, clothing and shelter- every day of the year. To them, the spectre of unemployment is a ghost never laid- To them, life is a constant strug- gle, with the odds always against' them." SCHWAB IS ROASTED A TO TRADE Assignments. for School Term of 1921-22 Given to Public i Mr. Eastty declared that the public had been deceived when it was told high wages were the cause of high prices. Profits, he said, were the real cause of high prices. "A few days ago the chamber of commerce wanted to know what was the matter with business, so it sent for Mr. Mr. Eastty contin- ued. "The philanthropic gentleman who heads the Bethlehem Steel cor- poration, that marvelously good man who receives a'new certificate of vir- ture every ninety days and who ac- cepts medals and crosses from Eu- ropean monachrs and double-crosses American the call and said high labor costs were to blame and that wages in all lines must come down. PROFITS RISE It never occurs to Mr. Schwab to suggest that profits come down. Mr. Schwab did not tell the public that after the wage increase had been paid the prices of finished steel was only 41 per cent higher in 1917 than it was three years before the war, while the increase in net profits per ton of finished product was 220 per cent." Closing the union's argument, E. F, Grable of the maintenance o'f way employes, declared that the members of his organization were -the lowest paid group of tho railway workers He asked that the labor board estab- lish a minimum subsistence schedule of a year for a family of five.
