to be the most prolific source of

on the average, for nine 1
wasted hours In ever/ working

ten hours more are thrown away on
energy?wasting and time-wasting
shop methods,?while another two
or three hours can easily be gained
by cutting out unnecessary work."
Bad Sales Policy.
The report continues: "The most
fundamental cause of waste is the
traditional fear-inspired. orUer-enticing
sales policy which expresses rw
itself in wide vafWjjF, aad Its at- *
tendant make-to-order basis of f
manufacturing. The trend in recent
years, due to the desire of the
manufacturers to stimulate addi- 1

been toward an increasing number1 cf
