Here are examples of the scope of a few individual suggestion systems: Bernard P. Anderson, vice president in charge of manufacturing 01 Remington Rand division of Eperry Rand, says employes' ideas on how the business should be run increased both in quantity and Quality in 1955. The company, which actively encourage suggestions, received 12,446. used 3.905 and paid 837,867 ^for them. For the first time suggestions for eliminating red tape and needless paper work topped ideas "for improving production methods. • Cost $3 Million Harry W. Anderson, vice presl dent in charge of personnel at General Motors, says workers offered 228,437 suggestions and GM paid 5S,225,741| for the 54,635 it adopted.

We don't know who the man was who first discovered the effect of fermented grape juice on the human interior, but one thing about him is reasonably certain: he lived a long while ago. This much is sure, because the history of chronic alcoholism is almost as old as the history of man himself. People have been getting incurably drunk for centuries. The astonishing thing about chronic alcoholism is that until very recently virtually nothing at all was known or done about it. If an alcoholic got any attention at all, it was the sort that did him no good. No one believed he deserved sympathy or help. Sure to be condemned, he was seldom cured. His closest friends had nothing to offer except the blunt advice that he had better stop drinking. The sick man or woman was universally ridiculed, frequently reviled and never understood except by brother alcoholics who knew no more than he> how to stop drinking. It remained for the twentieth century to discover what chronic alcoholism really was and to find a way to do something about it. For the first time, alcoholics today are getting really effective help. Chronic alcoholism is a disease. Its victims cannot control it by the use of their will power . . . and ordinarily It is incurable. In the long run, it can be counted on to kill or to drive its victims insane. It has been described as a physical allergy, coupled with a mental obsession to drink. Something within the physical mechanism is running wild so that the alcoholic is unable to take one drink without continuing drinking until drunk. Bluntly, the alcoholic simply can't stay away from the stuff. His drinking habits are no more subject to self-control than would be cancer or meningitis. A great many peddlers today are hawking remedies for the headaches of the world. Some o£ them cry their wares with voices that often sound "above the pitch, out of tune and off the hinges," as a wag once put it. But among the discordant notes, a few clear tones may be heard occasionally. One of these is made by a fellowship that is frankly disinterested'in headaches in general, socializing in a particular kind of headache, the morning after variety known as the hangover, and in its causes and cure.
