RUBBER ROADS. Sault Ste. Marie. Ont., has resurfaced parts of two busy streets with asphalt containing a rubber additive. The method is fast and cheap; the job was done between midnight and six a.m., and the streets were open for regular morning traffic. How the mix will wear remains to be seen.
LEARNED JANITORS. Nineteen graduates of a six-week pilot course for janitors, in Toronto, initiated by the Jewdsh Vocational Service under the federal-provincial retraining plan, stepped straight into jobs. Tw'enty-cight more men, mostly over 45 and some out of work for a year, are now taking the second course (25 percent lectures, 75 percent practical work). National Employment Service has more jobs than it can fill, at $50 to $55 for a 44-hour week.
