chanical engineers and others who are
working upon tho great problem of
eliminating waste motions and of re
ducing the time consumed by workers
In the world of Industry will have
reached the point for which they are
striving, and every turn of the hand,
every movement of the body, will count
In Increased production and greater gain
In dollars and cents.
But what of tho human worker
A while ago I read of a manufacturing
concern In the East that had Installed
motion picture camera In its plant for
the purpose of analyzing the motions
of every worker engaged In the process
of braiding. Close by eaoh, worker Is a
large clock. whoso subdivisions of time
are so finely arranged that by carefully
taking motion pictures of the clock and
of the worker at tho machines, at the
same time these ctllclency engineers are
able to determlno the time required for
each motion. It Is very minute, cry
exact, and beautiful, this device for
measuring human energy, so fine that
they can reckon to the two-thousandth
part of a minute the time consumed by
a single motion! Wonderful, is It not?
Then, with stereopticon views of the
workers taken by these motion picture
machine the efficiency engineers are
equipped 10 sit at their desks and study
out the best way to overcome needless
motions and to make every stroke tell.
Become Merely Slaehine..
Sitting there In their quiet room, with
the problem well before them, they watch
theso Alms and tho swiftly moving fig
ures, and somehow the human end of the
question Is forgotten, and the whole
thing assumes the aspect of machinery
They see a worker who reaches out
too far for a tool that he needs, and
they say that tool must be set closer.
Then they note that his motions are
well ordseed. that one comes first where
It should bo second, and they plan thoso
motions must bo arranged In better eco
nomic sequence. They find that mate
rials are not near at hand, and they
conclude those things must be brought
within easy-reaching range. Because the
waste of time and of energy are sinful.
And "when they have worked out their
problem to Its eloquent finish, they are
ngnt wen pleased with themselvei: very
proud of what science and brains can do.
For, bv this micro-motion study, as
they call it. they have cut by two-thirds
the time required for the manufacture of
goods, and. In some instances. cen
more They tell, these efficiency engi
neers, that by making every motion come
Into its on, a workman has been known
to make seven seconds do the work of
the one-time thirty'
Set In n Prlion.
.And so much for the men who sit at
tneir desks, dealing with clocks, motion
pictures, and clever devices.
But as one thinks of the worker hnunri
fast to his machine, with scarcely a
chance to lift his eyebrows or move his
eies from his task. It seems that these
skilled men, with their scientific man
agement, have' taken God's "noblest work
of all" and set him in a prison. And
all for the saving of time, whloh means
the Bavins of money!
There Is -just one thing more for them
to do to proe that their methods are a
blessing to the world, and that is to
close their desks, go out to these self
some plants and sit at the machines from
morning till night. One does not know
what would happen, but one really be

What "Would Women Dof
One dos not know, but sometimes she
thinks tbal women might place a higher
alue upon human life than that: that

some care to tho lives at stake, tho
minds, the hearts, and the nerves of tho
For If they entered the great world
of work with the same thoughts of
money filling their heads, the same
mania for eliminating false motions and
of keeping the worker'a nerves keyed up
by clocks and other devices to push him
along then some of us would not care
to see them serving as efficiency en
gineers and in similar capacities.
