In England it is Thursday. That is the finding of industrial re sarch board investigators of that i, country. The London Chronicle reports Q that over a period of twenty weeks ti the output was registered and a "graphs" were made. The workers gave their best on N Wednesdays and Thursdays, but the l output on Saturday was Invariably t low. When doubled (to equalize time) It is often less than 75 per cent of that a on other days. Another important conclusion was that the skilled workman is much n more regular in his output than the , worker not so well qualified. He does not get the "tired Saturday feeling" so Soon. In some factories the output arises A until Friday, but among the less skilled workmen it was found that Thurs day was the best working day. An important consideration which the investigators kept in mind was J that of the atmospherie condition in which work is done. Records of the g air conditions have been taken with f the output records. In various plants the Saturday out put was so low that employers found 0 it unprofitable to operate, so they losed down. From this it would ap pear that on a hailf day the worker t does not give the average of a half day efat production.-Richard 8pillane i to the Philadelphia Public Ledger.
