LID OFF BUILDING WORK

All restrictions on non-war construction throughout the U.S. are officially removed. The action permits all building operations held up in the interest of the war program to proceed. No further permits will be required from the war industries board or the state councils which controlled the situation in each state.

EIGHT HOURS PERMANENT

There has been discussion among timber workers as to whether the eight-hour day will be continued after the war. Some seem to fear the return of the old order. Over a month ago, T.J. Humbird told his men that he anticipated that the eight hour day in the industry had come to stay and had heard of no attempt to change it back.
