No books, just tools
if you were doing some handy work around the house in Berkeley
California and you needed a hammer you wouldn't go to the local hard-
ware store- you'd go to the library. The Berkeley Public Library is
getting into the tool lending business. A trailer will be set up soon out-
side the South Berkeley branch of the city library to lend hammers,
saws, planes, tape measures, ladders, chisels, drills, axes and wren-
ches, and some power tools. The city council allocated about $60,000 in
federal Community Development funds to run the tool operation, part
of a lending project to encourage people in rundown neighborhoods to
improve their homes. "The type of tools that we want to use are those
that will sort of let people do their thing at their home," said Richard
Brown, assistant director of the library. Brown made no mention of
the fine for overdue tools.

work week
"As long as we have one person
seeking work who cannot find it, the
hours of work are too long." These wor-
ds, spoken by Samuel Gompers at the
1887 American Federation of Labor
convention, served as the theme of the
First National All-Unions' Conference
to Shorten the Work Week, held at the
Hyatt-Regency Hotel in Dearborn on
The Conference was organized by the
All-Unions' Committee to Shorten the
Work Week, founded on October 25, 1977
by 68 union officials with .the aim of
initiating the shorter work week cam.~
paign. Though only 500 delegates were
expected, over 700 persons from 200
local and 25 national and international
unions attended.
THE MORNING'S events included a
keynote address by Frank Runnels,
President of the Shorter Work Week
Committee and the President of
Cadillac Local 22 of the United Auto
Workers (UAW) and speeches by
COngressman John Conyers, UAW
President Douglas Fraser and Charles
Younglove, Director of District 29 of the
United Steel Workers of America.
Runnels said, "We can trace our
roots to the earliest days of the republic
when in 1971 Philadelphia carpenters
struck to reduce the work day to 12
hours. "We must create the jobs that
are needed to give every person in this
country who desires to work a job
where they too can draw a pay check
and live in this country who desires to
work a job where they too can draw a
pay check and live in dignity like you
and I."
ALL OF THE speakers stressed the
fact that, like the movements of the
past, the present demand for shorter
hours is not being initiated to increase
leisure time, but to provide work for the
unemployed and job security for all
In order to accommodate those
presently employed, first-time job
seekers, and those displaced by in-
creasing productivity caused by new
technology and automation, the com-
mittee estimates that by 1981 5,800,000
jobs peryear will have to be created.
Fraser observed that with the con-
tinuing increases in productivity and
the sower rate of growth of the
economy, this trend will only worsen.
According to the committee,
reducing the average work week by one
hour would create 1,436,000 new jobs.
Those attending the conference
agreed they must continue working
toward a shorter work week and
scheduled a second conference for the
second fiscal quarter of 1979.
