Statlitics Show That British Factory Id
Employees Are at Their Best o
About Midweek.
- tit
What is the best workday in Amer o
eat? 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

Prehistoro Grveayard Unearthed.
A prehistoric graveyard believed to P
be at least 2,000 years old has been
unearthed near Stargard West Pros
dla, by German investigators under
the direction of Professor Zakrewsk.
In one of the raves the excavators
found six black urns and one red urnam
with white stripes filled with day and
ashes. Among the remains were some
glittering substances which the inves. I
tigators believe once had been adorn
ments of prehistorie men and women.
