NEW YORK, Aug. I.—Will Rogers,
comedian and philosopher, explains
why Judge Gary wants to sbolish the
12-hour work day. In his weekly syn
dicated article Mr. Rogers says:
“Now Gary says it will take time.
You see, a man who hss been work
ing for years for 12 to 14 hours a
day, and you cut him down to eight,
you have a physical wreck on your
hands. You take a person who is
used to the cool air of a steel furnace
for half the 34 hours of each day sud
bring him into the stuffy atmosphere
of outdoors, or a home, and he can't
stand it." l

Because it is so naturel. Because
it palpitstes with humanness. Be
cause you can feel yourself in con
tact with the tingling centers of life.
There is so little that is natural in
the human world. At every point
you are met by convention, tradition.
It is almost impossible, save in some
gmt crisis, to break down the bar
riers of artificiality that separate
your soul from all the souls of men.
r So seldom can you see your fellow
creatures as they really are. Masks
predomimte. You move among dis
guised personalities.
At a labor conference it is differ
ent. Different entirely. Convention
is ignored there. Tradition, custom,
precedent—all the things that get be
tween human' beings and keep them
apart—ere left outside the door at a
labor conference.
Thought is swift, speech is direct,
Words are used in their phinest
sense. There are no delusive subtle
ties. You have no doubt shout what
is said—have not to search for hid
den mennings.

The Labor Press is again putting out a Special La

covers the entire southwestern part of the state. Our
aim is to make this the best edition ever issued. Many of
the business firms on the Harbor were disappointed last
year because we could not accept their advertising. Our
shop is equipped to handle about a fifty-page edition.
All the merchants desiring advertising space should get
in touch with the office at once. Our solicitor will not
be able to call on all of you.
