Encouraged by its success in its campaign for the national pure food law, the International Stewards Association is now planning for a hotel training school and promotion of the movement to protect consumers against short weight and measurement in the purchase of goods sold in containers. The purpose of the proposed hotel training school, which will be located at Indianapolis, Ind., is to prepare the prospective steward, chef, baker, hotel clerk, and housekeeper to become proficient in their chosen trade or profession by installing in them business morals, building up character so that they may understand that the first requisite of success is honesty in the handling of food materials and other property belonging to employers. Practical courses of instruction will be offered in all the departments of hotel and restaurant economy. The school will also furnish training to men actually engaged in the business. Once completed and equipped, the hotel training school will represent a property valuation of $500,000. Most of the equipment has been subscribed by manufacturing firms, who will furnish their latest product as advertisement.
Of the 60,000 post offices of all classes in the United States, it is reported that approximately 50,000 eventually will be designated as postal savings depositories. The total number of postal banks created is now over 1600. By Sept. 1 all the 1800 second class post offices will have been designated as postal banks. It is the intention of the post office department then to begin designating the 6000 third class offices as banks, probably at the rate of 500 a week. Gradually the system will be extended to offices of the fourth class, including only those which are money-order offices. At about ten thousand fourth class offices money orders are not issued.
Representative Littleton of New York has introduced in the House a bill for a commission to investigate the question of regulating by legislation the transaction of business by industrial and corporate concerns engaged in interstate commerce. He believes that the Sherman antitrust law is defective and that Congress, after due inquiry into conditions, should set about making up its deficiencies. The commission he proposes is to be called the industrial and corporate commission. It would be composed of five members of the Senate, five of the House, and five members outside of Congress to be selected by the President.
