These are the causes of much absenteeism, and they deserve all tho harsh things that have been-said about them. Whether they account for a quarter, a third, a linlf or .two-thirds of Urn -123,000,000 man-days lost last year through' absenteeism, nobody knows. The best available information suggests that considerably more than halt' of all absenteeism is due to causes for which Die nation and the community are to blame, rather than individuals. Inadequate housing in war boom communities, requiring long, arduous daily travel, often in overcrowded trains and buses, on top of overtime work, may well be the most important cause of absenteeism. * * * This combination of evils promotes overfatigue and sickness. It interferes with normal'home life, thereby injuring morale. It prevents workers—many of them women who arc trying to keep homes going outside factory hours— from doing necessary shopping when .stores are open, from working in victory gardens, and from taking in the movies. Probably, "in the hectic drive for ever-increasing production wilh an ever-lessening force of accustomed workers, it will not be possible to eliminate all of these causes of absenteeism. Obviously we shall not be able to p-ovide housing so that all workers can live near their factories. H will be difficult, if not impossible, to supply sufficient transportation everywhere to do away with overcrowding in rush hours, A certain amount of reshuffling of personnel might reduce the burden of available housing and transit lines. Stores and recreational facilities might arrange to be open at the hours when workers can do their shopping. * * « If there is labor hoarding, which leads workers to disbelieve .the existence of a manpower shortage, so that they can see no harm in taking a day off when they see tit, the Manpower Commission should establish (lie facts and set free surplus workers wherever they are found. There is much that could be done, in addition to hurling invective at dclib- -atc malingerers. The first need, however, is to ascertain the facts. Can't some Washington department spare (he manpower to do that? Equality of Sacrifice ^ Accepting. Congress' repealer of his J 2o - 00 ° salary ceiling, because he could do noUiiiitf else, President Roosevelt tried to stick a last barb into the le#- islalors by accusing them of discrim- inaliiiK agoinst ?GOO a year draftees. Congress, ho said, refused to reduce Ihe salary of men not drafted, however high (heir incomes might be. That is not HO. Through taxation Congress has cut away all the fat and most of I In; /lush from big incomes. Through taxation Congress can strip off the rest of the flesh and most of I lie bone. The issue was and is whether the executive, against the expressed will of the people's representatives, can order and enforce a revolution in the nation's established philosophy—and that to the detriment 'of the war effort. Congress has answered that he can not. Telling the World The United Mine Workers have adopted an intelligent course in presenting their case to the public through largo-scale advertising. .And they chose well in ihe angle they have in their copy. Apparently the bulk of the public is against (he wage increase demanded by John L. Lewis. liul, on the other hand, few have really realized, when we have talked about the 35-hour week in coal mining, that another 90 minutes a day of unpaid time was required to gel hack and forth from portal to pit mould. Whatever the ultimate decision may be, at least it will be based upon a more intelligent public understanding of a major issue involved. w~ 9//I of the Fry ing Pan For the lirst ttme since war production began rolling, we have an adequate* .supply of stool for .ships, tanks ami other weapons. Steel no longer is the bottleneck behind the most, serious of all bottlenecks—that is shipping. We have left the hot frying pan and are falling into an equally uncomfortable lire. High labor turnover has caused a labor deficit of 70,000 workers in the shipbuilding industry, which is threatening attainment of our expanded goals. This is serious. The Nazis are stepping up their U-boat- campaign faster than the public has yet been informed. The delicit lias not yet been reflected in production figures, but will be soon unless it is overcome. • SO THEY SAY Jefferson knew how to set the Interests of freedom and progress above the egotistical interests of separate groups of society.

"I will find you bed," Jose strode off, to reliirrt soon wilh his arms piled with fnigi- an t pine ni'vdlcs. On Ihe Moor of a shallow cnvo in the vock lodge Ijy Ihe waterfall he spread them, then came baek for liarry. Barry was pulling a box from Ins coat pocket. Ho handed il to Jo.?o with trembling hands. "Good thing—they weren't left—in saddle bags," he grinned unsteadily. Jose oiicned ihe box lo frown i perplexity at the unfamiliar tablets. "Bill lljesc are nol quinine," ho objected. "Alabiine," Barry told him with effort. "Give them lo me . instruclions ... on box." Joso shook his head. "You should have quinine," he mourned. Apprehension rang warningly through Harry's blurring senses. It would he. typical of. a jungle man like Joso to throw nway Die medicine because it was different. He realized it would soon be loo Jate lo do anything aboul if. Already his mind was wandering under the heat of bis fever. He forced himself lo concentrate on Ihe problem. 3Ie Iricd to fix his glazing eyes on the powerful man kneeling beside him. "Jose!" "Si, senor." "Those tablets. They are betler than quinine. Do you hear me?" "Si." But (he man's voice was still mournful and unbelieving. "Do you promise—on your word of honor—lo give me the tablets —two each hour?" For a long minute Jose didn't answer.

His head whirled and lie leaned against the rock Icdfe'tf for support, while lie looked about him. It was n tlnzzling morning. ,Sun ?liark!ed on tho cascading water at the dill's edge, and lay molten over the rocky ledges and dark trees of the mountainside. Evidences ot Jose's vigilance were all about. Tamarack brandies had been laid over the entrance lo the cave. The remain* of a fire still smoldeiod on Ihe vock ledae Roughly hewn wooden cups dried in (he sun. As lie watched, the huge figure of Jose, himself strode out of the forest of pines, game slung over his shoulder. At sight of Barry, he waved an arm and hurried to join him. '•You feel better! 11 he smiled warmly. "Thanks (o you, Jose," Barry muttered, returning ihe .."mile. "You gave me Ihe medicine, ehV" Jose pulled the small box from his pocket and showed Barry it was almost empty, "it j s go0 il medicine like you say," he acknowledged. "Each two hours I make you take like you say. Ho I cannot go back to plantation and tell where we are." 'How long have we been here?" Carry demanded. The Mexican counted on his slubby fingers. "Five days," he said. Barry moaned. "How have vou lived all lhat lime?" Jose swung the animals he had killed from his shoulder. Two rc-l siiuirrels! "Very good," he said simply. He took a folding tin cup from his pockel and opened it proudly. "I make broth for you in this," he added. As Jose gathered brush for a fire, Barry asked, "What about the Quiches'.' Did they follow us?" Jose knelt to blow on the small name. "They did not find us," he said.

Then he stretched out on the soft, fragrant bed of pine needles. Barry m;,rvded a! the patience and gentleness of the big Mexican. The man had saved his life all right.

Barry felt cool now and refreshed. Jose turned as he heard his "I feel much betler, Jose," lie said. "Maybe tonight we could go back to tho Quiche country." Jose looked grim and shook his head. "No, senor, that would be folly." "But I must clear myself with them!" "This is not the time," Jose said quietly. "You feel better now because of the medicine you have taken. Later when that wears oil you might feel worse again. This fever is very bad stuff. We can not take chances of your getting sick again out here." "Bui you said tonight we could travel again!"
