RAVY YARDS AS OPEN SHOPS
(Scrlppa New Association)
Washington, D. C. July 28. An inter
esting question is now before the Navy
Department, involving the labor unions.
Captain Leutze, commandant of the Wash
ington Navy Yard, who acts at superin
tendent of the naval gun factory, has rec
ommended two methods of fixing a stand
ard day's labor either to put the men on
piece work or to use what is known as
the "premium system", which allow the
union to determine what shall be a maxi
mum output for a day, but which permit's
a man to do mora work if he chooses and
for which he receives extra pay. A hear
ing on the merits of the case will be had
at an early date, at which the representa
tives of labor will be allowed to present
their views. They will ly greatstresson
the advantage of the "premium system",
which, they claim, will stimulate greater
production and at the same time allow an
ambitious workman an opportunity to in
crease hi earning.
