BOSS’S MOVING OFFICE KEEPS WORKERS BUSY
When the manager of a European shoe factory discovered that shop work lagged on the floors that he seldom visited, he adopted the novel solution of transferring his office into a special elevator erected against the outside wall of the building. Now, by merely pressing a button, he can move to any floor without leaving his desk or even interrupting a telephone conversation. The arrangement has proved so successful that a new office is planned which will move horizontally as well as vertically.
