Enormous Cost of
Industrial Mishaps
Letters will be sent within the next
few days to heads of 5,000 Pennsyl
vania industrial establishments by
Dr. C. B. ConneHey, Commissioner
of Labor and Industry, urging that
they establish safety organizations
in their plants, if they have not done
so, and that they file reports on the
manner in which safety committees
operate. This will be the first time
such a record of safety movements
has been undertaken and it will also
enable the department to have its
safety experts get into touch with in
dustrial managers.
Dr. Connelley says that "the cost
of living to-day carries a portion of
the cost of industrial accidents" and
that the economic loss caused by in
dustrial accidents in Pennsylvania if
divided between every person in the
State would cost from 50 cents to
$1 per capita per month. Between
January 1, 1916, and August 1, 1919,
there were 734,330 industrial acci
dents, 10,800 of them fatal, accord
ing to figures mentioned by him,
while in the same period $28,038,-
303.34 was paid in workmen's com
pensation with $5,000,000 additional
required for carrying of disability
claims to maturity and the same
amount for medical or surgical care.
The loss in wages lue to these acci
dents is given as $50,000,000 and

Captain Edward J. Stackpole, Jr.,
was requested to lead the service
men in a procession with the service
flag and Captain Frank A. Awl, bore
