Our comment last week on a copy of Beardmore News,

to the effect that many large firms had neglected this method of promoting community of sentiment among employers and employed, has caused a. correspondent to send us Our Log, the staff journal of Messrs. Angus Watson and Co., of Newcastle, with a note saying that " this idea, rare a few years ago, is now quite common." Our Log, an attractive little journal, is in its sixth volume. The Industrial Welfare Society informs us that it receives regularly copies of about a hundred and fifty works magazines and that it is doing all it can to extend this kind of " welfare work." It is good to know that the works magazine has grown so rapidly in favour, but it is none the less true that it has yet to be introduced into very many large undertakings, probably because the managers have not realized its value.
