must toil for a collective liv ing is it con ceivable asks President John L Lewis of the United Mine Workers of America that a majority of the castaways would deny a dozen or 15 of their number the right to do any share of the la bor Is it conceivable that would insist in supporting them in the expense of course of the remainder who ne cessarily would have to work all the harder It dosent make

still employed and the unemployed whom the em ployed are supporting Present standard working hours should be shortened to arrive at a lair uninhabited island basis Lewis reasons For 28 Hour Week This isnt a new idea the 30 hour week already is widely advocated But President Lewis doubts that a 30 hour week is short enough In his judgment a 28 hour week would be a better guess Lewis notion is that 30 hours should be a fairly satisfactory line Turn to Pape Column 3 SEEK 9 MONTHS NRA EXTENSION Laval Again Called to Form French Cabinet Gophers Blamed for Damage by Floods LAWRENCE Kans June 6 LT

that England has arranged a subsidy with Emper or Halle Selassie to give the Etnl opian troops regular pay The accu sation was a highlight of a scries of violent antiBritish articles pub lished by the entire Italian press A wellknown physician offers o substi tute for the word vacation in describing the annual cessation from daybyday work which some people are beginning to take now and which many others will enjoy during the weeks just ahead He says the period should be called a recreation It is suggested that vacation is a term unsuited to express its intended meaning Its root to vacate implies emptiness inac tivity So a more fitting term it is held would be a vacation to be truly worthwhile should be recreation in the sense that it amends compensates and recon structs for the tear and wear of the re mainder of the year The essential value in a vacation is the change which it affords Science has in many ways shown that monotony is fatiguing We need change to overcome monotony we need rest to replenish our spent vitality Rest how ever does not imply complete or marked ces sation of effort A good vacation really means a change in occupation and in environment This may be gained in many ways One who works inside all the rest of the year should spend as much time outdoors as pos sible during his vacation period One who is actively engaged in outdoor labor probably would get ihe greatest benefit from doing something that required him to be still most of the up on his reading for example Vacations can be used sensibly and prof itably and they can be entirely wasted both in
