Peace Problems

After almost four years of
the most terrible war in his-
tory, we find ourselves again
at peace. The coming of peace
naturally brought joy and
gladness to the hearts of all
Americans because it meant
the end of the destruction of
our men in the armed services,
and probably before very long,
the return of most of them to
their homes. As joyous however
as is the news of peace, we
must also consider the fact that
peace willl bring many prob-
lems which will require the
serious consideration of all
concerned.

First of all, employment will
be effected in a great many in-
dustries, and countless people
will find themselves unemploy-
ed for at least a temporary
period until the manufacturing
of war materials is again recon-
verted into peacetime manu-
facturing. As soon as this com-
plete reconversion takes place,
many of the unemployed will
find themselvs again in the
ranks of those employed. This
factor alone must be given
serious consideration by work-
ers, employers and Government
Officials in order for the best
solution of the problem to be
reached.

Perhaps the best way that
most of us can help in this
problem is by making ourselves
into the best workmen possible
for if we can help our em-
ployer to make the best type
of goods that can be made, he
can go a long way towards as-
suring us of permanent em-
ployment. This is a self-evident
truth because the best of every-
thing always finds a market;
and if the product we work on
is marketable, then our em-
ployer can furnish us work.
However, if we produce goods
of an inferior quality, he can
not do this as the goods will
not sell, and it would be use-
less to continue work when
goods can not be sold.

[article continues on col. 2, middle section

Not only must we be
good workmen as to the quality and
efficiency of our work, but we
must likewise be careful and
safe workmen and do all with-
in our power to hold accidents
and other causes of lost time to
a minimum for the costs of
such likewise effects the cost of
the article we produce — and
if the cost is too high, we can
not market our products at a
profit for some other manu-
facturer who does produce
without accidents and such
like things will be able to un-
der sell us and again we lose
our job security.

Last, but not least, we must
shoulder the responsibility of
good citizens in our respective
communities for man must not
only play his part on the job,
but he must play it to the best
of his ability off the job in his
private life.

There are many other prob-
lems to be considered, but both
employers and employees
should pay strict attention to
these factors as they will do
much to shift conditions from
war to peace to the satisfaction
of the majority.

SLATER
DAY BY DAY

Now that the war is over
and Americans can settle down
to a peaceful way of living we
will have more time to pay at-
tention to affairs at home. Per-
haps the first thing in our com-
munity that should claim our
attention is a Parent-Teachers'
Association.

We need a P. T. A. to bring
about a better understanding
between children, teachers, and
parents, so that difficulties
that arise during the course of
a school term may be more
easily ironed out.

A P. T. A. also helps parents
and teachers to become better
acquainted and eliminates a lot
of embarrassing situations
when it becomes necessary for
them to confer about matters
pertaining to the school or the
pupils.

But perhaps the most import-
ant thing a P. T. A. does is to
increase the child's faith in an
adult world by letting him
know that the home and school
are working in cooperation to
improve his opportunities to
prepare himself to meet life.

And organizing and operat-
ing a P. T. A. does not require
very much effort or work on
the part of any one individual,
but it does require a lot of
working together among the
school patrons, the school
teachers, the school pupils, and
the school committee.

At least a dozen persons in
Slater have expressed a will-
ingness to take part in a Pa-
rent - Teachers' Association,
and there must be many, many
more of the school patrons who
are interested in the promotion
of school activities to the ex-
tent that they would be anxi-
ous to help operate such an or-
ganization.

Other schools have them;
why can't we? It is up to the
parents.
