One gallon of gasoline has the explosive power of 14 sticks of dynamite. The risk of rear-end collisions makes carrying gasoline in the trunk particularly dangerous. We recommend that gasoline never be stored inside a home or apartment. If necessary to do so, it should be kept in a garage or other well- ventilated area, away from possible sources of ignition, such as water heaters. Waste Not, Want Not. . . "A penny saved is a penny got," wrote James Thomson. If pennies are watched, they accumu late dollars. And that's what waste is all about. It's not a question of being cheap or stingy. It's a ques tion of use without waste to prevent want. In these days of shortages ranging from wheat to energy, one does not throw out the end of a loaf of bread or leave on the kitchen light when the family is in the living room. That is simply waste. Business, too, must prevent waste, for carelessly used pennies accumulate and become dollars. That sounds sensible. Still, how many paper clips have you seen thrown away, . . pencils discarded. . . scratch pads destroyed. . . tools foolishly broken. . • minutes wasted on the job? Each costs only pennies. Added up, however, the dollars accumulate, dollars that would help make your organization stronger. Can any organization today afford not to save its pennies? 2 - Cost Of Absenteeism The average American worker is abseiR from his job 9 days each year for reasons ranging from commuting problems to alcoholism and including plain irresponsibility, a business survey has revealed. This absenteeism costs employers an average of $146, 30 annually for each person on their payrolls. These and other conclusions were drawn from a study of on-job absenteeism and lateness conducted by Prentice-Hall, Inc. , in cooperation with the American Society for Personnel Admin' istration. The survey covered 931 firms. According to this survey, wages lost due to absenteeism would amount to 9 days' pay for every American worker.
