ut as having an ingenuity almost hulan.
One of them, used In polishing

To the Belgian worker this was

Besides doing the war work of all
Inds. this new use of machinery has j
pened the eyes of producers as to
- hat machinery could do for increus-i
iK British production when normal
ondltlons are restored. It has been
rgucd as one of the chief weapons to
orabnt the revival of German manu-.
ncturers and another "Made in Ger-.

hown that most of the factories lit
Ingland were equipped in the days of
team, and have taken no account of 1
lectrlcity as a new motive power. He
gures out that this old-time eqtilplent
cannot possibly compete with
imerlcan and German production.

Manchester the delegates referred to
this new use of machinery as one et
the chief after-the-war problems, as It
would limit and compete with the head
labor of men returning ftropt the afpjy
to clvfl occupations. But while recognizing
It as a danger, they appeared to
accept the increased uso of machinery,
particularly American machinery, as
one of thu assured facta brought out
by tho war.' One of the rcsolutlo s
passed called on the Eorernmunt to
give special attention to the need* of
workmen resulting from this now and
enlarged competition from machinery.
