If we approached the problem in this manner wouldn't we find that bis shortcomings started by our •own shortcomings in the area oi training techniques and educational opportunities which were by-passed because we had ether things more pressing \vhich took all of our time? - G. S. Thomas 1027 W. 9Ui Freeport THE DAY SANTA LOST HIS SPECS NEW YORK (AP) - Once upon a Chriilmss Eve Santa Claus got mi>»l up. He vras late taking off from the North Pole. When he landed his sl'rd by the chimno-y atop the Cist home on hit route, he reached impatiently for his spectacle* to see which packages belonged there. But his spectacles were gone.' "I must have dropped them," said Santa. "I'll go back ami look." Back his reindeer flew as Santa pwrod anxiwfily do*A r n into the MIOV;. !t gr<.-w later anil Uiter. Still he could nee no uxn ol "What'll I do witlK/ut my specs?" Sanl;i said, his red nose turning blue with worry. "I can I Bee the addresses on the packages." He asked all his reindeer in turn if they c»Jld re;ni, uruj ear-h shook hii head no and itarnped his foot. 'Well, I can't wait a moment longer," .said Santa. "I'll have lo do (he l*wt I can." So over the roofs o( every land lie flew, dropping oil at each liome packages he pulled from his bag by guess-work. When Santa got back to the North Pole he was Business Mirror so discouraged he wouldn't even drink the steaming hot toddy Mrs. Claus had prepared for him. Morning came, and the greatest uproar mankind had ever known arpse. Nobody in the whole world had gotten his own gilt. Everybody ted gotten somebody efcfA present. Telephones everywhere Jangled in complain). The parliaments of every foreign country were called into emergency session. So was Congress. So was the United Nations. What could be don*? It would take 'Ad-la or months for the mailmen to correct the errors Santa had made in a single night be ruined. The statesmen debated and debated. Finally at noon a small boy stood up in the gallery of the United .-."at ions and piped up: "Why don't we just keep what Santa did bring us? As long as you vfl to open a package, it's still Christmas." The diplomats hesitated a momc-nt, then leaped to uVir fett ami chwred. Why, of course that was the onl> possible answer. Evc-rvbody at heart wants something that belongs to somebody t-lse. That's only human nature. So around the world the word was flashed: "Everybody open everybody else's present — and keep it or trade it." So everybody did open everybody else's present. And were they surprised! Grandmas and dd maids opened their packages and found dolls in theiii, and Ihey wept with pleasure and said. "It has been a long time since anyone gave OS a doll." Little boys were delighted 'o find their packages contained cufflinks and gi own-up ties like their daddies wore. And the fathers were pleased to see they had gotten a real electrv- train, some- ^:yi^ ;.'-> '•?-•?- Jwu cr-iii il:c:.'i *£ their own childhood. Little girls thrilled to find their packages held long-*ieeled shoes and lacy lingerie like .mamas usually get. Everybody who opened up everybody else's present found it was just what he had wanted all his life. Every heart was a bell ol joy. There never had been a happier yulciidc — and all because Santa Claus got mixed up and lost his spectacles. Moral: Nobody can really mcu up Christmas. STEELMEN SHUN INDEX STATUS Hy SAM DAMSON AT Buhiiu-M, \t-ui Anal)hi NKW YO.iK (AP)—A death sen- U'nc'C has been pronounced again on the weekly uleel output rate •« u (n-iv(-n(»KC "1 capacity. Just how rrv'iny livt-s this widely followed indicator of industrial health may prove tu have is yet lo be seen. Hut (lit steel Industry has been anxious to get out ofthc K\:tie of publicity the index cauls in troubled times. The output rate currently is just under 50 per cent of capacity. That in, the mills aro pi-ixlucin^ around 1.4 million tons a week, compared with capacity of 3.>i million. Ami the industry thinks the puo- liL- draivs tuo m:my concluaiona from this: by overlooking (he large amount ol output in tonnage and in wondering about the buildup in capacity In recent years and when it might be fully I'sed. The steel capacity rate Kliarca with the weekly auto output estimates the attention of the general public looking (or guides at to whether times are likely to be good or bad. Steel men in particu- lar dislike thus concentration oC interest, especially when times are slack and the future uncertain. Tlit American Iron Steel Inati- lute tried to drop the index during the IBM recession when the oper- ;jling rale was BO per cent or lower. But with capacity known, too many persons figured the rate.- out pretty closely and published it anyway. This time the institute Indicates It won't make its annual January pronouncement on the now capaci. ty figure. The; question is: Will outsiders, knowing that capacity clianged little in 1SCO compared with recent years, I* able to estimate It fairly closely and once again figure the operating rate for themselves? 1. Capacity has grown so in recent years that a fX) per cent rate really turns out us .nuch tonnage now an full operations did at tin.- end of the war. 'i. New techniques in steel production turn out more steel per new type mill than do the older ones, lobbing capacity ol much of its significance. J. Many ol the older milis ar« un the capacity rolls but are so obsolete ,hey may not be fired up again except for emergencies, such as war, 4. The ("Miniate! 1960 tonnage at an average rate ot less than 70 per cent tor the year is estimated at nearly 100 million tons— an output that would have required 97 per cent ol capacity 10 years ago. Critics ot the dropping ol the traditional output rating contend: 1. Comparing: today's tnnnaee with former years doesn't allow for the* growth In tike general economy and its normal needs. 2. The tonnage index the institute now proposes based on av- eiayc- ionnage output in iSf>7-">3 overlooks that this base contained one year of good production, IKiT, but also the recession year "' 1958, and the strike disrupted year of 1959. 3. The Htccl Industry is unduely sensitive to its showing in periods of slu'kness and to lack of understanding &2 its program of building for the future In adding to capacity during the 13JO*.
