Conford, Kilkenny and Lewis. The opinion of the court was delivered by Kilkenny, J.A.D.
[85 NJSuper Page 49] Claimant, Andrew J. Zielenski, appeals from a final determination of the Board of Review, Division of Employment Security, affirming a decision of the Appeal Tribunal, holding claimant (1) disqualified for unemployment
benefits as of May 30, 1963, under N.J.S.A. 43:21-5(a), upon its finding that he had left his work voluntarily "without good cause attributable to such work," and (2) ineligible for benefits from May 20, 1963 through May 25, 1963, because of his failure to report during that week at the designated time as required by Regulation 21.01.

We consider first the issue of disqualification under N.J.S.A. 43:21-5(a).
