The Overhead Expense of Direct Labor

OVERHEAD expense is made up of general items which cannot be allocated directly to the cost of any individual pieces, or products. Nevertheless, each item does represent some service necessary to production, administration, or sale. These services are of many varieties, and the different products often require them in widely varying amounts.

Someone sent us a clipping from the Philadelphia Public Ledger which shows that the old Philadelphia conservatism is still operating. The news article states that Dr. Hugo Eckener spoke very favorably of that city as a possible airport for future Zeppelin Atlantic service, and with this in mind the city fathers were not going to consider any field for the municipal airport which wasn’t at least 4,000 sq. ft. in area.
