Otto T. Kreuser, '17, continues his
article on the "Social Organization in
Germany" in today's Daily.,
A natural prerequisite for holding
high office in Germany is a thorough
university training followed by a pro-
cess of elimination during the course
of the career of the office holder.
Thus the high state officials form the
higher social class because they ans-
wer fully both conditions, that of edu-
cation and of occupation.
The class closely associated with
this and almost on a par with it, is
composed of persons of university
training who are qualified for state
service and will sooner or later be-
long to that class. This class in-
cludes the managers of large cities.
Next follow those who have had
some higher school training such as
that of the gymnasium or its equivel-
ant, (an education equal to a college
training in this country). Among
these we may class heads of important
corporations, mayors of small towns,
minor state officials, such as postmast-
ers, district superintendents of rail-
ways, and large wholesale and retail
merchants. Further, there are in-
cluded owners of large hotels, teachers
in common schools and lesser city of-
Then cone the class of burghers
who follow trades and possess a prim-
ary education, but still own independ-
ent businesses, such as harness mak-
ers, cabinet makers and small con-
Next in line are small shop keepers,
owners of small rest'aurants, pettyl
government officials like mail carriers
and railway trainmen.;
Finally there is a class of ordinary,
laborers, namely those engaged in a
trade, peasants, agricultural workersI
and lastly unskilled laborers.
This is approximately the division3
into social classes that can be observed.
There is no distinct line of demarca-
tion between any two social classes,
but it may be said that there is a dis-
tinct division between academically,
trained persons on the one hand and7
merchants and laborers on the other.
But this division is by no means sot
strict that no social intercourse takest

place between the classes. In fact, be-
tween any one, and the next following,
marriage may take place-a distinct
proof that no caste system exists.
There is, however, no difficulty in ris-
ing from one class into another. This
frequently happens. All that is neces-
sary is that a young man attain the
necessary educational qualifications
and has of course high intellectual
capabilities. For example: The son
of a mailcarrier or shopkeeper could
become a high government official or
army officer if these conditions were
satisfied. One of the best known Ger-
man generals in the present war is
of humble parentage.
Apart from an economic unrest
which is common to all countries at
the present time there seems no fric-
tion among classes. On the whole it is
realized that those best qualified fill
the highest positions. A feeling of
solidarity, however, exists in each
class. This is especially true among
the laboring class and finds expression
in socialism, (which is, however,
chiefly founded on economic grounds).
Such a feeling of solidarity also finds
expression in an educational quasi-ar-
istocracy, due in some extent to the
fact that state officials are subject to
frequent transfer from one town to an-
other and their social life is not root-
ed in the community in which they
What I have said about social class-
es pertains not only to the town that
I have accepted as a type, but to the
whole Empire. In large cities a cap-
italist class in our sense of the word
has made its appearance. As a mere
wealth has not seemed worth while
striving for to the German people the
classification which I have laid bare
may be accepted as more or less per-
The conclusion I wish to arrive at
is, that, though German society is or-
gaized into classes on the basis of
occupation and education, it is on the
whole democratic. The continuance of
the present system is assured by the
wonderful system of education and the
realization of the people that it is on
the whole wise and practical and con-
ductive to the best results for the en-
tire nation.

Magazine Says Adamson Bill Has
Awakened Employers to Dang-
er of Arbitration





Prof. J. A. Bursley's employment b-
reau seems to be a barometer of the
prosperity in the engineering field, for
at present the inquiries for engineers
exceeds the demand for positions.
Furthermore the salaries offered are
on the whole, larger than those of-
fered at this time last year.
Positions which carry with them a
salary of from $75 per month to $3,000
per year are available for men who
can start to work immediately. Sev-
eral companies have already offered
positions to the prospective graduates
of next June. The Delco and West-
inghouse companies have sent in ap-
plications for senior electricals. The
former concern is willing to place in
its research laboratories the ten men
of the graduating class who rank high-
est in scholarship.

Jeanette Armstrong, '17, chairman,
Margaret Atkinson, '19, and Kathryn
Johnson, '19, assistant chairman, the
membership of the Woman's league
exceeds that of any previous year,
with an enrollment of 830. At least
900 members are expected before the
end of the year as new ones are be-
ing enrolled every day.
The highest record in the past was
820 in 1913-14 when the dues were still
only twenty-five cents. In 1914-15 the
dues were raised to fifty cents and the
membership decreased. Last year the
enrollment was 518.
The first week of this% semester
showed a gain over last year, 535 hav-
ing joined the league. A three day
campaign among sorority girls, fol-
lowed by a personal canvas of the girlst
in League houses increased the num-
ber to over 800. There were 50 girls
engaged in this campaign and sever-
al of them are still working.
Girls who have not yet joined may do
so at any one of the Friday afternoon
parties of the league upon application
to Jeanette Armstrong .
The league will be stricter this year
about the admission of non-members
to its affairs. A small fee will be

The last week ha sseen some rather
interesting developments in the polit-
ical and business worlds and "The
Bache Review" call attention to sever-
al of the most notable. In the case
of the Adamson bill the Review says:
"There is a pretty universal conviction
that the method of settlement of the
eight hour controversy was a mis-
take." Seven or eight of the leading
railroads have filled injunction suits
to avoid the operation of the law to
have its constitutionality proved and
its meaning explained. There seems
to be much question upon this last
point for neither the railroad chiefs
or the brotherhood managers know ex-
actly what the law means. "The rail-
road managers," says the Review,
"maintain that the old and time-hon-
ored milage basis of pay is to be dis-
regarded under a correct interpreta-
tion of the new bill; that no matter
how many miles a man runs a day,
he would not be paid for a day's work
unless he has worked eight hours, al-
though hitherto he would have been
paid for a day if he ran 100 miles."
The rush of congress to pass the
Adamson bill has awakened employers
to the danger that threatens the prin-
ciple of arbitration. As a result a
union of employers has been formed
embracing more than 15,000 industrial
concerns said to represent eight bil-
ion dollars of capital and who have
in their employ more than 7,000,000.
This organization is called the na-
tional conference board and its object
s to investigate every problem of the
kind to gain the facts of the case for
the public, labor, and the government.
"The Bache Review" also comments
at some length on the automobile in-
dustry in the United States. "The
growth of the automobile business
which has been enormous in the last
few years is now exceeded in volume
only by steel and cotton. The United
States will undoubtedly hold its lead
n automobile manufacturing, as it is
he only country fitted to manufacture
motor cars cheaply, by reason of its
having already attained production in
arge volume."

May Be Arranged by Women on
Thanksgiving Day
Requests have come from a number
of women for a special song service on
Thanksgiving day, instead of the regu-
lar Thursday vesper service, conducted
by the Y. W. C. A. The committee
will be glad to arrange such a pro-
gram, if the demand seems to warrant
it, and if it seems that a large enough
number of college women will be in
town on Thanksgiving day, to make
the service successful. Special music
will be secured from the School of
I Music, if the plan is adopted.
