WORK FOR THE UNEMPLOYED. To the Editor of the Prestatyn Weekly." Dear Hir,- While I much admire your clever and somewhat original suggestion for dealing with the unemployed youth, I would suggest to you that it is an impractical theory. Power to take the youth to work, implies also a power to bring work to the work-less. Do you propose controlling the labour-market and preventing employers from sweating ?" Would you say" Your ontput, sir, proves you are not employing a full complement of workers 1 Here are four youths needing the work you are at present sweating out of a small staff." Perhaps, though, you would rather say to the State We want more trees about Pres- tatyn send along 1,000 strong young trees from the German forests, and we will put our unemployed to plant them! To the local council you could command a sea-wall -built by hooligans Certainly there would always be plenty to do then, if only repairing to-day what fell down yesterday besides which, half the gang might be regularly em- ployed at holding rip what the others pre- tended to do Kopes of sand, sir all ropes of sand. The gentleman to look after our youths is already provided by nature-his father, to wit. Pare'nts"should be held more firmly to their responsibilities, and much other trouble would be avoided. The State need only deal with the orphan and criminal. Your views suggest that Christianity is a failure it is really we who fail in our duty and professions. More love and self-denial will cure much. Yours, etc., DIOGENES. [" Diogenes addeth humour to his wisdom. The contention is that there is plenty of work for everyone the only difficulty being to find it. Many employers would abolish overtime if men could easily be got to do the work. Half the time of our unemployed is spent in looking for work, and if an organized system could be established for the the purpose of informing the men where their labour is required, tramps would cease their eternal search, and the Weary Willies, who at present make a great noise, would no longer have an excuse for idleness. As things are at present it is impossible to distinguish between the few men who really want work and the large proportion who don't.—Ed., P.W.]
