They worked in 12-hour I shifts, from midnight lo noon, or ' from noon to midriighi'.l, at backbreaking and'danyerous lasks, handling heavy equipment, auil tools. Now there will be three -lours" —the oil mail's lerm for shift--!ar drilling crews, with the htiptiiiiilnn. that men can be worked bli hours a week only when drilling in to complete a well. Oil-field laljo: for the time is classified according to the type of work done nnd according to the knowledge and skill required, and wage- .scales are based on these cla-ssifica'.ions. Life Is Hiird ' ut-Brst Drilling trews ore a rugged 'ol. accustomed to their long hu-irs nnd LKOd to all sorts of hards:ip. but they welcome the change. For i!ia most part they live in canvas or board shacks in the fields, nni v;nen engaged in wildcai'.ing operations ofien far from cities an:l towns. Pumpers, too. are happy, for many of them in charge of a large number of wells have had nlmost no fixed hour. 1 ;. Not all of them will get relief, however, for an exception is made for tr.c pumptrs in charge of stripper, or small- producing wells. They will get. ve- iief except where it is "impracticable" because of the iiiitnrr- of! their Jobs.

Army Returning to Work The gasoline market lias now turned toward a more ncrmal level and n'.any parts of the country are witnessing thousands or refinery employes reluming to work. The shorter refinery riay. too. is creating jobs. As an example. Mid-Continent Petroleum Corporation, operating the world's largest independent refinery, reports an addition of '200 men. an increase of one-sixth. This refinery now operates on tl'.e six- hour day iiutsad of eight hours as heretofore.
