Aimed at increasing efficiency by operating WPA projects, supervisors and foremen on all types of work- relief jobs today had received instructions to suspend all shirkers, loafers and individuals who refuse to obey instructions. The new order affecting the WPA workers in Fayette, Washington and Greene counties was given at meetings of foremen and supervisors during the past few days. Foremen on the jobs, WPA officials said, have the right to suspend the loafers, shirkers and insubordmates for periods of from two to five days. If this form of disciplinary action does not bring the offenders into line to improve the efficiency of a project, the general foreman or other official in a supervisory capacity may recommend the dismissal of the offender or offenders. WPA authorities declared the strict enforcement of this order was necessary in order to rid pioject of a few incompetent workers who refuse to carry out orders and thus impair the operating efficiency of the various work corps.
