THE MICHIGAN DAILY
OMPENDING LABOR CONDITIONS
OUTLINED BY PROF., ADAMS,
"The present peace conditions will
tend to re-establish the old rule of
wages," says Professor H. C Adams,
of the economics department. The
war has brought in, according to his
views, economic conditions unprece-
dented in this country.
Women Do Men's Woark
For one thing, vast numbers of
women have left the domestic for oth-
er fields of labor, which hitherto had
been in the hands of men. Before
the war, according to the census of
1910, 25 per cent of the women in this
.ountry above 16 years of age were
wmployed in gainful oceupations, while
he percentage of males in the same!
condition was 91 per cent. The next
census will undoubtedly show re-
narkable changes in the relative
iumbers of men and women engaged
n working for their living. Whether
ir not women will be willing to yield
np their places to men and return to
heir homes is yet a question; still,
t is probable that the majority of
hem will do so. Someone must do
he work in the homes, and it is more
ikely that women, rather than men,
should be the ones to take charge of
Machinery Much Better
Another economic effect of the war
.as been the greatly increased effi-
Jency of machinery, coupled with the
nefficiency of the human working
orce. Only women, and men unfit
or military service were available in
hops and factories, and new meth-
ds of increasing the working power
f the machinery were absolutely
ecessary to keep up required produc-
ion for the war.
During the last three years the mar-
et rule fixing wages has been en-
.rely ignored. Wages followed the
ourse of standard and cost of ° liv-
ng. Each rise -in the cost of living
ras accompanied by a corresponding
Ise in wages, until ignorant, un-
killed labor was able to earn unim-
ginably, almost criminally, large
All theseconditions are wholly ab-
.ormal and cannot last in ordinary
Imos of peace. Now that we have
eace, it seems quite certain that the
Id rule of wages will hold sway once
lore. This rule will be determined
y the demand and supply of labor,1

titude in Which We View Life." In

frequently happens to be the recon-
struction of their own lives.

Do not miss seeing pretty Peggy
Hyland in "Marriages Are Made," a
delightful comedy drama at the Ma-
jestic, tonight. Miss Hyland has a
charming part, of which she takes
full advantage. "A Tight Squeeze,"

of the lighter part of the program,
but a word to the wise, if you have
a cracked lip, stay home. This pro-

John. Barrymore in "On the Quiet"
will be the attraction for tomorrow.
One development follows another dur-

the hero and heroine have become
married in secret, risking the $20,-

the heroine if she selects a husband
finding favor in her brother's eyes.
The picture is one of the many supe-
rior comedies which the Majestic man-

Today and tomorrow the Areade
has a special attraction to offer to
the publie. It is none other than
"Toys of Fate," featuring Mmo. Nazi-
mova, one of the greatest-if not the
greatest-actress before the screen
today. Her last picture, "Revelation,"
caused a great deal of favorable com-
ment from movie patrons and we pre-'
dict that "Toys of Fate" will be even
more favorably received on acocount
of the wonderful performance ren-
dered by Nazimova.
In this production she romps'
through her role with an enthusi-
asm which is infectious. Her per-
sonality is radiant and her acting en-
joyable to watch. Every expression
has its meaning.
