THE MICHIGAN DAIL'
WAY RATES IN
J YORK TO GO UP
James F. Shaw, former president of
the American Electrical Railway, be-
lieves that the New York street car
lines will get an increase in their
rates in the near future. Mr. Shaw
says that the worst that can possibly
happen to.the New York railway sys-
tem has already happened and that the
city administration will surely give the
street railway a raise in rates. Shaw
says that the only thing that is the
matter with the railway system of New
York now is their starvation rates. He
goes on to say that not only the New
York traction system is badly in need
of an increase in rates but that there
have 'been receivers appointed for 29
companies throughout the country
during the last year, showing that oth-
er companies are in, the same pre-

BETTER GRADE SHOE LEATHER
O W AVAILABLE; PRICE SAME
Leather for the manufacture and re-
pair of shoes is one of the raw prod-
ucts that has become much more plen-
tiful since the close of the war. Since
the government began outfitting the
large draft armies about a year and a
half ago, shoe leather for both man-
ufacturers and retail jobbers has been
exceedingly difficult to obtain and of
The government contracted for vast
amounts, taking the best obtainable
and curtailing the supply to dealers.
Now, however, since the manufacture
of army shoes has ceased, the market
is fairly well stocked. Ann Arbor
buyers of leather report that they are
receiving much better grade stock
now for practically the same price
of two months ago. Also they are now
able to buy linen thread for the first
time in nearly two years.
The following casualties are report-
ed today by the commanding general
of the American Expeditionary Forc-
es: Killed in action, 30; died from
wounds, 23; died of disease, 69;
wounded severely, 62; missing in ac-
tion, 40. Total, 224.

FITTING WOUNDED FOR
TRADES BIG PROBLEM
HERO WORSHIP IS OBSTACLE AC-
CORDING TO MAJOR
C. S. BERRY
With maimed and wounded soldiers
pouring into the country at the rate
of 10,000 a month, America is faced
with a huge problem of reconstruc-
tion; the problem of making them nor-
mal self-supporting citizens again.
Each individual case will have to be
taken up by a specialist who will aid
in helping the patient find what he is
best fitted to do. Major C. S. Berry, for-
merly a psychologist of the University
of Michigan; who is in Ann Arbor on
a furlough from a general hospital
near Washington, outlined the work
that the government is attempting to
do in its reconstruction work.
Restore Individuality First
According to Major Berry, the first
great task after the soldier has arriv-
ed in the general hospital in this coun-
try, is to get the patient to ceaseI
thinking about himself and his misfor-'
tunes and to restore his feeling of in-
dividuality. This is done by the ward
nurses and the specially trained aids
who teach the men crafts. Working
with their hands tends to make pa-
tients forget themselves.
Suitable Vocation Chosen
In the event that a man is physi-
cally incapacitated, Major Berry says
that his particular history is studied
by psychologists and he is trained in
some professional or mental pursuit,
the man's preference and apparent
latent ability being the basis of the
choice. If the man is'capable of vo-
cational training he is given the best
instruction possible. Then he is
watched closely and if he shows
adaptability he is given thorough in-
struction and afterward he has the
choice of entering a college or a trade
school, with his tuition and book ex-
penses paid, and an additional -$65
a month for general expenses. Con-
gress has given the vocational board
$2,000,000 to do this work.
Hero Worship Hard to Overcome
Major Berry goes on to say that the
greatest handicap that the returning
wounded soldier has to overcome at
the present time is the attitude of her%
worship that those at home bear to-
wards him. He finds it very difficult
to tear himself away from the admir-
ing friends at home even long enough
to take advantage of the opportuni-
ties offered by the government. After
a few months, hero worship will wane
and then the soldier without special
instruction is very apt to be non-self-
AIDED BY LETTERS
Twice as many commendations as
complaints by the general public is
the record of the Federal railroad ad-
ministration which recently published
the report of mail received during the
period of the war by the administra-
tion's bureau of suggestions and com-
plaints, under the direction of Theo-
dore H. Price. On the 24th of Decem-
ber 16,424 letters had been received
by the office, which contained 11,666
commendations, complaints and sug-
gestions. A considerable number of the
criticisms offered were of positive aid
to the railroad administration in or-
ganizing its service.
Mr. McAdoo states that every letter
received by the bureau has been an-
swered and that statements concern-
ing employes were used as a basis in
giving rewards of merit and correcting
discourtesy. The total number of com-
plaints received was 714 as against
1,328 letters of praise for politeness or
efficiency on the part of the federal
employes. Since the signing of the
armistice, the number of unfavorable
reports has diminished daily as the
railroad conditions gradually return

Herbert C. Hoover, United States
food administrator, and director gen-
eral of the international relief or-
ganization, gave out the following
statement in regard to the food sit-
uation in the United States today.
"The dominating food problem in
America at this moment is the prob-
lem of the American farmer. Taking
it broadly, before the European war
began we exported about 5,000,000
tons of food a year. This year we
were prepared to export at the rate
of from 15 to,'20 millions of tons.
The increase represents the patriotic
service of the American farmer, plus
the voluntary sacrifice of the aver-
"The armistice came suddenly, free-
ing shipping from military use and re-
opening to thepAllies the cheaper
southern hemisphere and the colonial
"We are thus faced with a serious
problem with respect to our own
great supplies, patriotically accumu-
lated. Therefore in the period be-
tween the armistice and peace we have
a difficult situation to face.
"It is impossible, however, to de-
mobilize the whole of these intricate
forces set up during the war, in a
week. So, pending these solutions the
American farmers, merchants, pack-
ers, and banks simply must stand to-
gether for two or three months to
carry our excess over until the mark-
ets of the world have been more ex-
tended and finally liberated by peace."
