Worker Has Need to Create Or Product Quality Suffers What, it may be'•'pertinent to ask on this Labor Day, lias happened to our quality, of workmanship? And since it is so sadly lacking in many fields, what can be done to bring it back? Where now is the genius of the individual craftsman, who with his own , hands forged and fashioned such imperishable marvels as the Kentucky rifle, the Concstoga wagon, the cuUery that cut, the houses which lived as long a sthe trees around them? ' The .answer is that n lot of things have happened, among them the industrial revolution. This technical upheaval in_ the art of making man's goods resulted in change away from the workman producing goods with his own hands in his own home, and loword many men working side by side in factoriess, fashioning their products with power machinery' More.goods could be produced cheaper the new way, but quality, laboriously worked into each item by a man's hands, suffered. Something else suffered and suffers still. That is the attitude of the factory worker toward his work. That attitude — good or bad — bears directly upon the quality of the product the workman turns put. And it's here that our mass production system has hurt the altitude and hence the quality. For insUuice, it's pretty difficult for a workman to hike personal pride in the finished product when all he does !s turn a couple of bolts somewhere along the line. That's perhaps an cxajj- Korated statement of the case, but il illustrates the point. And the point, carried further, is that one of the great motivating forces in a man's life is the personal pride and the recognition of others for a job well done- Without this basic motivation, his work is going to suffer, and why not? If music were produced by a couple of dozen musicians each writing a bar. what kind of music would we have? And if a couple of dozen painters collaborated on a single picture, who would want it? Painters and composers and the like — the old hnnd craftsman was once one of them — demand and get personal recognition for the job they do. They wouldn't work without it, and 'we wouldn't want them to. But the country has moved fast since the industrial 'revolution, and giant industries have sprouted to supply (lie nation's giant needs, and the industries need and pay- well the workers whose hands guide the power tools. With the tremendous industrial p"h>- gress has come a material standard of living tmcqualed in the world, and few would want to go back to anything else Still, we have the problem of providing individual recognition and a means of self-expreK.sion to the millions of workers who keep these industries going. Many big companies have taken commendable steps to provide hobby, shops, recreational programs, and similar means. Others have set up profit- sharing arrangements for their workers- The workers thc-mselve* should also recognize their basic need for suit-expression, and in off hours and long weekends — themselves a product of our industrial system — tend ;> garden, go to school, build a house — in short, create. Employer and worker alike, in fact all of us, should recognize the.s-e problems for what they arc and lend our every effort to solving them. If we don't, millions of workers will continue to go to the ^hop, the mill and the mine only because it means a paycheck at the end of the week. And when that occurs it means that for too many workers the tendency will be to do as little as possible, short of lieing fired, and so pressure arises against the worker who appears to be doing more or doing a better job than his fellows. That has already happened too much. Something can be done to alleviate it, but if it is not — we shall continue to suffer from lack of quality in our workmanship. And that is u matter of vital importance, both to the workman and his country. Yep—It's the Silly Season For a minute there it looked like the Austrians had UH. A piece from Vienna said the telephone company there tells people not only what time it is and whether it is raining or not, but also provides detailed menus for the day's meals, telephones bedtime stories for the kiddies at night, and will sound a reliable "A" so you could tune your violin- Then, just as things were looking darkest for us, along came one of those New York fashion outfits and saved the day. They've got women's gloves that come clear up to your elbows and on the back of the hand of each one is a gadget that holds three cigarels. It's very handy for cocktail parties, the fashion people.:.said. When you've smoked,up the six cTgarets it's high time to leave. 6f course, it"'you think you've really got to have another cigaret just call up Vienna and have them telephone you some smoke from your favorite brand. Views of Others The Mob And Our Gups Mossadegh and his street fighters need nn- other victim. The British are gone from Iran and one cannot brawl with those who arc not present. So demand was made in the Iranian parliament to seize American oil holdings on Bahrein island in _thc Persian Gulf. It nmkes no difference that the island does not belong to Iran'. It can claim it anyway. We also have ci-rUim missions in Iran. One of the deputies demanded their expulsion because 'They are more ;\ liability than an asset to Iran." One of our missions is military. ,\t a railway station platform where American military cimi|i- mcnt fin- Irnn was being unloaded a storming party nttempu-d to seize the equipment.

The best protection is to keep it secret is long as possible, then tell everybody at Ihe same lime. Nineteen sites in the Ohio River Valley were under consideration before Portsmouth was picked. When the decision wns finally made, congressmen were told about it only an hour before the press, and nobody had time to buy up anythinfif. At Savannah River site there ™ ..V 8 ? £» w l profiteers to clean up. Some values always skyrocket, and the government has no protection like being able to slnp'on a price freeze. The government might acquire by condemnation, but II prefers to negotiate and give everybody It moves out of an area a fair break. There arc always a few stubborn landowners who try lo hold out for fantastic prices. Condemnation proceedings finally have to be used In these cases. And usually the local courts and juries settle on n price lower than the government's asl nml best offer. ' Ship of Stale liccaimd Tilings nre quieter around the U. S. Slftle Department than they have been since anybody can remember. Maybe it's because Congress has (rone homo. Maybe because so many diplomats nnd government officials around Hie world arc on vacation. Maybe it's because interest Is centered on other Iliinss, like politics or Billy Rose's divorce suit. Anyway. Ihe bi^gi-si crisis they've hnd in Fo^py Ballot:} re- cenily was over what Margaret. Truman's Secret Service 1 body- sirards actually die) and s,\ici in Stackhom. This condition is cnnsuJrred (on frond to iast. Nobody believes the Russians have decided lo bi-havo. The awfu suspicion is that this Is just another dogclay cam bc-Iore another awfu storm. I-nvell Loves the UgM Touch Defense Secretary Robert A. Lovelt is one of Ihe few characters in government who somehow manages never to vioate the bureaucrats' rue number one, which is "Don't take yoursef too darn serl- ousy." lie confessed to a press conference rccenty that he had one of those itte five-cent notebooks In which he wrote down things he was going to do. He is going to burn it, he said, because it caed for nbsoutey impossibe accom- plshments, .But he added that It was a nice stimuant. When he was asked if he woud stick around after Nov. 4 to coach his successor, he answered, ''I re- gretfuy too that I shoud decine. I think it's time for some more youthfu feows to get In here and acquire a coaling of scar tisse." Awf Lack of Coffee in Brail coffee isn't too good. Brnziian reserves, which hed the uprice down 'for severa years after the war. are now a gone. A bad crop in 1919 pus increased demand after 'the ' Korean war broke out started a wave of market specuation which sent prices skyrocketing to a high of 88 cents n pound this year. This is over four times Ihe 1940 price. The key lo bringling the price down is planting more trees in Brazil and other coffee-raising countries. There's no evidence that this is .being clone extensively. It takes five years to bring a tree into production and it bears for only 15 years. The number of bearing trees Is now estimated at ii third less than 10 years ago. The United States now takes.two- thirds .of world production of over four billion pounds a year. u. S. consumption u.?ed <o be over 15 . pounds per capita per year, but • the high prices have dropped this ! by a couple of pounds. The Latin-American coffee-growing countries maintain that the U. S. ought lo continue to pay the l high price just to bring stability i to their governments, and so help them light communism. U. S. Money Saves Calilc Liftimr of the hoof-and-mouth disease quarantine against Mexican .rnttlc on Sept. t ended a six-year job ot wiping out the disease that cost the U. s. government $125 million. The i\texican government spent an equal or larger amount, using its army to enforce the quar- aniine and slaughter many infected herds. A vaccine was finally developed to stop the spread of the disease to lininfected catlle. But all infected animals were slaughtered and'buried, and the total number killed was nearly one million head. Inside on Fearful French One of the real but unexpressed reasons for French demands that the U. S. government give them more military assistance is a fear that America will start building up German arms-producing capacity to a point where it will be greater than that of France." This is a real threat. Many American military procurement officers believe that German-made planes, tanks and guns are superior lo French products. O. S. officers are also pretty tired of all the horsing around there has been over building French airports. They're ready to start pouring orders into Germany. In any western European defense planning, however, the French are going to insist thai they have superiority lo Germany. Thus France will have 20 land divisions as compared to 12 for Germany. The French want a similar margin of superiority on arms production. And they point out that arms factories built in France will be a lot safer from Russian 'attack than any plants built in Germany. Spain Beats Around the Bush One of the excuses brought up by Spanish dictator Francos' negotiators in opposing U. S. proposals to establish air and naval bases in Spain is that the high pay of some 200,000 American soldiers, sailors and airmen in that country would upset its economy. Spain is strictly a low-pay-scale country, where Ihe equivalent of 1214 cenls in American money is an average day's pay. The presence of any large numbers of American Iroops on Spanish soil, wilh the buck privates drawing $3 a day, would of course show up the Spanish standard of living In a bad light. Instead o/ profiting: by having these military payrolls spent in Spain, as Ihey are in other European countries, Spanish authorities want to keep them out. 11 is bush- beating arguments of this kind lhat have slallcd the American- Spanish negotiations In Madrid for four months. the Doctor Says- By EDWIN P. JOHI>AN, M. D. Written for Nf,'A Service Mrs, K. nsks a number of questions about birthmarks, and since there are few things whu-h worry parents more lhan these skin defects on their children. Hie EUI>- jccl is well worth discussing. Mrs. K. says, a m o n e other filings, lhat she has ncard of sev- marks removed, and \vnnts to know which is the best and safest Unfortunately, this question cannot be given an absolute answer, since there arc several kinds of birthmarks: and since birlhmiuks vary in size and location ihc way in which they should be treated is influenced by all of ttu-se factors. Fortunately, many blrihmarks are so small, covered with hair, or placed in such an inconspicuous part of the body lhat they do not require any trenlment. Some birthmarks are made up of numerous tiny blood vessels In the skin. Such a "mark" is called a hemangioma. Some are level with the surface I of the skin but have a rsrk purplish color which fives them the common name of port win« mark Others made up of blood vessels are raised above the shin level nnd are soft and spongy. These arc called strawberry marks. This type may occur anywhere, but II is particularly common around Ihe lips or tongue. Another common variety of blrihmark made up of blood vessels is.iregiilarly shaped and slightly raised. It is called « spider nevus because while the smaller ones passing outward resemble its legs. There are various ways of treating port wine nevus or birthmarks, all aimed at closing off the blood vessels In them, so that blood ceases to flow through. Carbon dioxide snow may be used for the small ones. Need Delicate HamHInic These birthmarks require dell- rate handling, however, as there is some danger of leaving an nb- nonnal skin after the port wine birthmark has been destroyed. Radium treatment is effective, also, in some cases. There Is slso a treatment with what Is called the Grenz ray which is sometimes helpful. The same kinds of treatment ran be considered for the strawberry mark, or UM spider nevus. The proper treatment for a birthmark depends on Ihe location, Ihc size, and Ihc particular varlcly of the defect. What should or should not be done for a particular birthmark Is best decided by a physician who Is thoroughly familiar wilh all the factors Involved.

East won the third leart trick nnd returned a trump, South winning with the eight. Without thinking too carefully South cashed the ace of clubs, ruffed a club in dummy, and •uffed a low diamond to return lo his hand. He then ruffed another club in dummy, but had to ruff a diamond with the queen of spades to get back. , When he next ruffed out West's iast club with dummy's last trump, South had only two trumps left in his hand. He could get out of dummy only by ruffing a diamond, and this was bound to set up a rump trick for East, If South hnd counted on-hls fin- fers and his toes lo see how many .rumps he would use up In the process of _mffin,g clubs in the lummy and diamonds in his own hand, he would have seen that his plan would not work unless the clubs broke 4-3, and the trumps also broke 2-2. The odds were about 3 to 1 against such luck. A far simpler plan was available :o make the contract. South should have won the trump return in dummy at trick four, in order to ead (he kipg of diamonds. If East >pldly ducked, South would let Ihe dng of diamonds ride. t There was a 50 per cent chance !hat East held the nee of diamonds, in which case this play would develop declarer 10th trick. Having obtained a diamond Tick, South could continue with :he crossnifT, and would easily win Ihe rest of the tricks. To put il another way. he would- win five trumps in his own hand, three trumps in Ihe dummy, the ace of clubs, and one cllnmond trick., Hal Hoach publicists had to kiX a whole series of stils taken of'.' actor Onsloiv Stevens in costuma " for his role of George Washington in the telefilm series, "The Ae'- 0 tor's Hour."
