Selk a Little known part of City government the department of  weights and measures probably has More effect on the average citizen s life than any other single unit. Take for example the Racine housewife who spends $28 for groceries. A variation of Only one half an ounce in a Pound in each package would mean a savings or loss of about $1. The average Racine family of four has been estimated to have a financial stake of at least $100 a year in weights and measures enforcement. One Man operation Racine s sealer of weights and measures Robert Zierten runs a one Man department which is charged with making sure a scale holding a Pound of chopped liver indicates that it is holding a Pound and not 15 or 17 ounces. This week Racine and hundreds of other cities in the country will observe National weights and measures besides chopped liver Zierten also checks Gas pumps of gauges packages containers n fact anything that weighs or measures. Although Zierten likes his work he admits it is not always a bed of roses. One time he was called from his vacation by a Racine factory to Check a suspected Short shipment of steel.

He was met with an Aroma of frying liver when he returned Home that night and his worst fears were confirmed his wife had Fried the evidence. Although at first glance it would look like the sealer works Solel y to protect Consumers from crooked merchants he is just As concerned with protecting merchants from themselves. In a Large volume operation it s possible to give away tens of thousands of dollars Worth of material on slow Scales Zierten said. Unexpected visit Scales and Gas pump measuring devices in Racine Are tested regularly once a year for accuracy. In addition unannounced spot checks Are made frequently. The overwhelming majority of Racine merchants according to Zierten Are honest.
