Engines and machinery at tho

beginning to rust and corrode, and
show signs of wear as a result of
the use by the office of lubricants
for both engines and cylinders, fur
nished under general supply com
mittee contracts.
"Experiments cery year with
oils are becoming expensive to the
Goernment and injurious to the
machinery and equipment of the
big print shop," according to Pub

The Public Printer appealed to
the Comptroller of the Treasury
for possible relief from this condi

there is no relief under the law.

Government Contractors May
Shift Forces to Private
Undertakings.
Government contractors may not em
ploy men for longei than eight hours a
day on Government contracts but. It It
Is practicable, may employ the men for
a longer time In a day by shifting them
to private work.
Thla is the gist of the opinion of the
Department of Justice on one of tha
questions submitted to tha Secretary of
the Navy on the Interpretation of tho
eight-hour Government contract uct
passed by the last Muslon of Congress

of Justice opines that this applies to

that It was tha Intention of Congress
to extend the eight-hour limit to cover
tho production of this commodity, and
the Department of Justice therefore
concludes that the eight-hour provision
should apply tn the manufacture, of

It Is pointed out that there arc a
number of ways under this opinion for
