    Work needed to be completed on the GRADIENT of a square in Japan. With the MOMENTUM of the MOBILIZATION of several trucks, OCCIDENTAL citizens despaired of the DEMOLITION of several DECIDUOUS trees. They had wanted a charming MOTIF for the property.

They wanted skilled, professional workers, not former inmates who might show REGRESSIVE behavior in this job. Skilled workers could not be subjected to DEGRADATION for an inferior job nor would they get a DEMOTION if their work were imperfect.
