Service to Suit
Opinion Expressed That Work
Should Be Adapted to
. Needs of Housewife In
stead of Vice Versa.
Conforming the service of laun
dries to the need of the housewife,
instead of forcing the housewife to
adapt her wash to laundry require
ments, was the principal subject of
of the Nebraska Laundry Owners'
association, in 15th annua! conven
tion at the Hotel Rome yesterday.
O. J. Fee of Lincoln urged that
laundries acquire equipment to per
form any process of laundry work
which the housewife may desire. He
also urged the elimination of what
he termed objectional marking of
linen and other materials. This can
be done by treating the family wash
as a unt, or using what is known as
the "individual" system, he said.
W. H. Hoefer, speaking on "Sys
tem," also urged the use of the non
marking system. H. H. Gilpatrick,
president of the National Laundry
Owners' association, addressed the
convention on association work.
Following a dinner at the Hotel
Rome last night the association
members went to Ak-Sar-Ben den,
Where they saw King Ak's latest
and greatest musical production.
Don't Favor Wage Cut. '
"No matter what difficulties heart
the laundries of the country, owners
will never favor anv laree reduction
of wages to girl employes."
ihus did H. tl. Gilpatrick of Kan
sas City, Mo., president of the Na
tional Laundry association, express
a sentiment which seemed to prevail
generally among those who attended
the opening meeting of the Nebras
ka Laundry Owners' association,
"During the war wages to laundry
employes increased nearly 100 per
cent," continued Mr. Gilpatrick.
"The laundries would like to recog
nize the downward trend of things,
but price reductions will not be fa
vored by owners if it is necessary
to cut wages down to the old scale."
May Drop Further.
H. A. Jacobberger, vice president
of the state association, said female
laundry workers received an average
of $17 a week in Omaha and that
the minimum scale was $14.
"During the past year prices on
household work dropped about 20
per cent," said Mr. Jacobberger.
Prices may decline 10 per cent on
all kinds of work during the ensu
ing year, but I could not predict
even that reduction with any posi
tiveness. Price increases over pre
war prices in Nebraska totals not
more than 29 per cent."
In the absence of W. O. Potts of
Chadron, president of the state asso
ciation, Mr. Jacobberger opened the
meeting with an informal talk on
affairs of the association during the
past year. Commenting on business
conditions he mentioned that 17
plants in the state had gone out of
business through inability to get
prices to pay the tost of the work.
Proposed Model Laundry.
About 35 laundry owners were
present at the opening session, and
10 or 15 more are expected to arrive

Absorption of Substantia
Blocks of Reparation Bonds
"Unavoidable" to Re
adjustment of Trade.
Washington,' June 16. Absorption
of substantial blocks of Uerman re
paration bouds in the American n
nancial market is "unavoidable" tin
federal reserve board said today n
a formal discussion of the repara
tions settlement. '
However, termination of the rep
arations controversy was viewed by
the board as an economic triumph
opening up a promising outlook for
future European adiustment with a
special bearing upon the position of
the United Mates.
This is found, the board said, in th
fact that the adjustment unques
tionably eliminates the most' serious
clement of uncertainty that has af
fected international trade since the
war. So lone as there was hesita
tion' regarding the final adjustment
trade between Germany and all other
nations including the United Mates
was necessarily more or less in
terruoted. i? ' '
Not only was this true but the
considerable investment of Amen
can capital in German enterprises
which had begun about a year ago
could not safely be continued and
was necessarily suspended. Sale of
German government obligations m
this country, whether with or with
out allied endorsement, was equally
unlikely to be successful. - Indeed
ever since the appearance of serious
friction regarding the settlement
there has. been a practical cessation
of European offerings of this kind
Ihe situation fortunately has nl
ready become much less acute and
conditions are approaching a rather
more normal position. That our
market will be called upon to carry
a substantial share of the necessary
financing growing out of the Ger
man adjustment will naturally be un
