PRODUCTION DECREASED AS HOURS SHORTENED French Ministry of Commerce So "Re port After Making a Study of French Workers. , Paris, April 10. Arguments that es tablishment of the eight-hour day would result in at leant as large out puts as the 10- or 12-hour day, have been proven fallacious, so far as France is concerned, by in investigation con ducted by "the ministry of commerce. Those who have made "a study of .the French. worker, and know his inherent antipathy to being converted into a machine for automatic action, are not surprised by the conclusion that pro duction is decreased in exact propor tion to the reduotion in hours of la bor. In the merchant marine it has been found necessary to increase the per sonnel 60 per cent; the wood working industry, in which the working hours were reduced 25 per cent, has lost 40 per cent of its output, and, makers of bicycles and similar machines have found their production cut down at least 33 1-3 per cent. Textile indus tries centering about, Roubaix report that manufacturers have fallen off 20 per cent under the eight-hour sywtein and that enough operators to handle the work cannot be found. Other in dustries show similar figures. The results of the investigation, while disputed by labor organizations, are accepted by the ministry as official.
