THE MASTER'S EYE
THEREIs, an ancient proverb that "the master's eya
does ..more work than both his hands." The modern
version of the master's eye la a card catalogue system
that keeps a record of the work of thousands of employes of.,
a great Industrial Institution. In passing such a card file the
etherHay I made Inquiry about It, and the manager said: ,v
"This Is our system for keeping track of the mistakes
made by employes. Nearly every mistake we dlsoovor In
any part of the work Is traced baok to the employs who .,
made It, and It Is recorded here against his name."
"Do you point out each person's mistakes to him at the
"Oh, yes. Especially when they amount to much, lut
'we don't speak about every mistake. That would Only con
fuse the employes and make them fearful and probably lead
to making more errors."
"What do you find Is the cause for most mistakes?"
"Carelessness almost every4 time,"
"How does your system affect that?"
"Well, he said, "the mere fact that vn keep such a
record Is a stimulus to employes ta be careful. Even If ws
never looked up a card It would be worth while keeping up
the system Just for the general Influenoe It has. lut we refer
to It often. And ws know It works because the percentage
of mistakes Is lowered from year to year."
