Vacation Period About Over?
There has been a feeling among employers
that a lot of idleness since cessation of hostilities,
whether prompted by strikes or not, has been due
to the fact that masses of laborers working al
most without vacations during the war period and
accumulating considerable money and bonds,
craved a good long rest. Not a few were forced
into idleness by suspension of wartime industries
and a certain percentage of tins class may remain
out of productive labor due to marital status and
other reasons. On the other hand, there are
many who will refrain from working as long as
their savings hold out and nothing short of losing
their money and experiencing some of the pangs
of hunger will force them to return to jobs for
which they are fitted.
That the time is approaching when men must
go back to work is seen in a report that $2,500,
000,000 in series E bonds have been redeemed,
not to buy equipment but for day to day necessi
ties, according to the Spokane Spokesman-Review.
This statement led the East Oregonian to
remark that if this is the case the time is coming
when people will have to go to work.
It may mean that workmen will assume a dif
ferent attitude towards their jobs some work
men, that is. Stifling of industry' can go only so
far without hurting the worker. Usually he is
the first to suffer. There is a possibility that he
will see the advantage of making the hours of his
day's employment productive, develop every angle
of efficiency, that he may preserve not only his
own future but that of his children or his succes
sors. He will not loaf during his regular hours
in order to make overtime necessary, but by ap
plication and honesty of purpose will command a
better wage. There are employers who appre
ciate that type of employe and show their appre
ciation by advancing their workers when and as
conditions warrant. Unfortunately, there are
other employers who appreciate nothing that is
done for them, but we trust that class is in the
It may require a few more months to reduce the
reserves to a point where people feel they must
go to work and until that time there will be short
ages of a lot of items essential to the common
welfare and comfort. Only a desire for coopera
tion between labor and management will bring
about a return to normal conditions and this will
not happen while both sides are amply equipped
financially to weather the storm.
Readers Like Larger Pages
Judging from comments heard since the issue
of June 6, Gazette Times readers are well pleased
with the change from the tabloid size to a stand
ard eight-column paper. There are some who
regretted the change because they found the
smaller sheet easier to hold up while reading.
However, these are in the minority and we feel
that the change was in the best interests of all
Due to the help situation and the uncertainty
of newsprint supply it will be necessary to con
fine the paper to four pages most of the time. But
as explained last week, our readers will be getting
more reading matter on four pages than they got
on eight of the smaller pages.
It is the desire of the publishers to give the
readers a bigger and better newspaper, and this
will be done w-hen conditions are more favorable.
Delay in this matter is not due to lack of support
but rather our inability to overcome the shortages
heretofore referred to.
Heppner seems to have lost its grip on the cel
lar position in the Wheat-Timber league. If the
boys repeat at Condon Sunday they may stand a
chance of winding up the season on one of the
upper rungs of the ladder.
Those Fossil players and fans take their base
ball seriously. That's why they have stayed on
top all season. Just for the sake of good sports
manship it is a good thing to suffer a defeat now
and then. An undefeated team has nothing to
fight for and it adds zest to the game' itself to
have a surprise sprung occasionally.
