EIGHT HOI RS
One of our largest employers of
labor, Henry Ford, acting as an um
pire for the national war labor board
has come out flat for the eight-hour-
He Is not for the eight-hour "ba
sic" day that Is, eight hours taken
as a mere basis for reckoning a day's
pay, though the working day Itself
may be longer. It is not good policy
he insists, to give what may seem a
fair day's wages for the first eight
hours and then keep the employe
working on top of that for "time-
and-a-half for over-time and double
time Sundays and holidays." Eight
hours Is enough, and the pay should
be based on the absolute fact.
"My experience, and also my rea
son," he explains, "teaches me that
err few emergencies ever exist in
manufacturing business justifying
the practice of exceeding eight work
ing hours per day. The strain of
eight hours Is enough and the hours
shonld never be increased except un
der the most extraordinary circum
stances. I cannot dwell too much on
this. For the good of the men, tor
the good of the employer and for the
general results, I would admonish
those interested to adhere to the
straight eight-hour day."
The public is Inclined to agree
with Mr. Ford.

No one should make the mistake
of expecting that the signing of an
armistice means the early return of
his soldier friends or relatives. Even
the final signing of a peace treaty
will not necessarily mean that.
The mere routine process of de
mobilization alone requires a long
time when such large numbers of
men are concerned. And It may be
a considerable time after the peace
declaration before the actual demob
There will be an enormous amount
of work for the allied armies to do
after hostilities end. They will have
to clean np all the battlefields, re
moving the wreckage, burying the
dead, salvaging useful material, and

otherwise dispose of hundreds of
miles of railroads, vast warehouses
and docks and all the miscellaneous
paraphernalia of modern warfare.
