Will Tell Hew Science Of Waves Is Progressing The tremendous strides being made /by scientists in the field of shortwave transmission will be portrayed at a meeting on Friday evening, March 22, in the Memorial Auditorium, C. L. THE CHERRY TREE It is of more than passing interest to note that, in spite of work stoppage of one kind or another, our total pro duction is now going forward at a rate exceeding the last pre-war year. That means that we are really shelling out the goods. a You can Figure out, if you’re good at figures, what we will be doing when the big disputes have been set tled and the production lines really jget going. Our production will be terrific.' For big production there has to Ise a big market. But there’s more to it than that. Because we learned a lot of things in the war, our production will keep on getting bigger and big ger, if plants can run at full blast. That means that markets must keep on getting bigger and bigger—or else. That gives us quite something to think about. For some time the domestic market will be flush with money, ready to buy all kinds of new things. The export market also will be gtad. It, too, has been starved by reason of the war. And some of the Latin American nations have big cred its with which to buy. These were built up by’ our military operations in those countries and by the war ma terials we had to buy in huge quan tities. If we" could know how long this balloon full of money will hold out we could reach .some very interesting conclusions. It might be a good estimate to ex pect that five years will be about the outside period of hunger-buying—that is, buying by those at home and abroad who are starved for goods and who Bullock, division industrial manager of the Ohio Power Co., announced this week. Dr. Phillips Thomas, research engi neer for the Westinghouse Electric .Corporation, will be the speaker. His lecture will include a demonstration of ultra shortwave radio, development of which was hailed as the greatest of the war until the atomic bomb came jalong. Long recognized in the engineering world for his contributions, Dr. TThomas is now outstanding as a hu man link between the mysteries of the research laboratory and the everyday J/World in which we live. His weekly radio program, “Adven tures in Research,” broadcast from more than a hundred radio stations and approaching its fourth year on the air, presents discussions of scien tific facts, some new, some old, but all aimed at the rrtan in the street and the xouth in the classroom. Before wartime research claimed most of his time, the scientist spent many hours on the lecture platform demonstrating the marvels of science to hundreds of audiences. Now, with the war endeji, he has resumed lectur ing. Transcriptions of his radio broad casts on science now form a “talking library,” and are distributed free for use in schools and colleges by the United States Office of Education. Expert to tell how science of waves is progressing A native of Granville, Ohio, Dr. Thomas was graduated from Ohio State University in 1904. Two years later, he was appointed an instructor in engineering in Princeton Univer sity. In 1911, he received a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Princeton, and the same year joined the Westing house organization. He has several in ventions to his credit, including those of the ultra-audible microphone and the glow-discharge microphone—vital steps in the perfection of radio broad casting.

B. of 0. P. who passed away Feb. 4, 1946. And Whereas, We members of Local Union 29, Dishmakers, regret beyond words the loss of this Brother, with his ever pleasant personality, who was respected and held in highest esteem by his fellow workers, ’Therefore be it Resolved, Ip further acknowledgement of our esteem, and heartfelt sympathy to his bereaved family, that copy of thi% resolution be spread upon Minutes of Local Union No. 29, K.blished in the Official Trade Paper, and a copy forwarded to the reaved family, and further that our Charter be draped in mourn ing for a period of 30 days. ’W’WR’ have the cash to put on the line. Fi’. years is as good a figure as any and probably not too far from the truth. What is going to happen when that spree is over? That’s, let us say, the under side of the rosy picture. The foreign trade picture is com plex. Many countries are broke—clear broke. Their buying will be done on what credit they can muster and then, as they begin to climb back they will be required to liquidate the bill. There probably will be a long-time demand, because of the destruction of Germany and Japan and the ruination of such industry as there was in some other countries, including Manchuria. The need will be there, but the abil ity to pay is something else. But in five years a lot can happen. Britain will do a big come back as export producers, Nobody knows what Russia will do. If it serves her pur ppse to export, at the expense of her own people, she will export. Some of the Isatin nations will make big strides in industrial production. Mexico and Argentina are two in that class. And now we have the picture at home. Economists pretty much agree that our industry can overcome the pent up demand here at home and five years is an outside period for that. Then we get back to what is called a “normal” demand. Of-course ‘‘nor mal” isn’t quite the right word, but is one that gets itself understood, roughly. Well, where does all of this lead us? It leads right where any considera tion of industry and its output always has led. It leads to the fact that if goods are going to move away from factories and mills and mines, some one has to have the money available— millions of someunes. That ability to buy depends pretty much on wages. The distressing thing we have to gaze upon is the fact that employers, supposedly educated by ex-: perience before and during the war, haven’t learned a thing. They still try to hold wages down close to a general subsistence level. They don’t understand the need for high wages. They don’t know economics. They think the answer to everything is in profits. Well, profits are like water flow ing from a spring. When the under ground supply dries up, there is no more spring. Five years should about See it.—CMW. Union, Company Agree To Pact Raising Bus Pay Cleveland, 0.—(ILNS).—A federal fact-finding board’s recommendations for wage increases in a dispute in volving 4,000 employes of Pennsyl vania and Central Greyhound bus lines has been accepted by the companies and the Amalgamated Association of Streets Electric Railway and Motor Coach Employes. Workers in 18 north eastern states will benefit. The board’s recommendations pro vide for a pay boost of approximately 14 percent for drivers and a flat in crease of 13 cents an hour for main tenance and terminal workers. The workers were on strike during Novem ber and December but ended the walk out to await the board’s decision. The board recommended a pay rate of 5.6 cents a mile fur drivers in the eastern division and 5.5 cents for those in the western division. The union had asked for 5.75 cents for both divisions. The raises would increase mechanic’s pay to $1.40 an hour and that of ticket agents in large terminals to $1.29 an hour. In a joint announcement the com panies and the union said they would begin negotiations to draft an agree ment embodying provisions of the fact-finding board’s recommendations.

Coroner Roy McClellan said the in vestigation was launched March 20 by the McClean county grand jury. Ab sent from the inquest were the four company guards accused of murder and TP&W Pres. George P. McNear, whose indictment for murder has been demanded by the 13 rail unions strik ing the line. When the coroner called out McNear’s name, Clarence W. Heyl, Peoria attorney, replied in a faint, em barrassed tone that McNear would stand on his constitutional rights and not appear. The verdict was returned after a perponderance of testimony showed that the guards had opened fire on the pickets without warning. Only dis sent came from Harold Shreeve, strikebreaker from Bt. Louis, who claimed that a picket ,had fired first. A neutral witness, Howard Yandell of Gridley, 111., agreed with all the union witnesses that the four guards, armed with a rifle, pistol and shot guns, had opened fire as the pickets “already were moving away.” Confirming this, Dr. Benjamin Mar kowitz said both slain men were shot in the back. Autopsies showed that Irwin K. Paschon, striking head time keeper, was hit several times in the back and Arthur W. Browne, engineer, was struck in the back four times al though the fatal bullet entered from the front and pierced his heart.

Penny store where a pic ketline of 20 clerks was protesting refusal to renew a contract with United Retail Wholesale A Dept. Store Employes. The potential line crashers had been recruited by ad vertisement of a sale of nylons and scarce cotton goods. A women’s auxiliary member talked to women' in the crowd, longshoremen, seamen, pipefitters, found out their husbands were shipyard workers, then reminded them that breaking one strike for a pair of nylons would weaken the position of their husbands. “You’ll never get 30% for your own, girls, if you don’t stand behind the other girls’ husbands,” she told them. The crowd disbanded, practically all of them putting nylons off their list until union clerics sold them. Machinists Win Pennsylvania Central Airlines Election Washington (FP).

SIKot Fabulous FloridqJBoom Crop: Dollars^ Oranges, Jobless, By HAROLD PREECE Tampa, Fla.—(FF). Dollars and orange trees grow in what the state chamber of commerce happily calls “fabulous Florida.” And so do the people who have no dollars—the un employed. A recent release of the state-owned Florida News Service, citing bank statements furnished the state comp troller, boasted that deposits are “mounting higher almost daily” and that “many elements in the financial Structure of the state show’ resources have often multiplied tenfold within the last 10 years.” That’s the success story of the big shot Floridans and northern black marketeers growing fat off the va cationists who are uncomplainingly paying spectacular prices at the hotels, shops and night clubs in the crowded beach resorts. pfc Mobs pf tourists willing to pay any price for chicken-coop space have sent rents in- Miami Beach and Palm Springs soaring to new heights and not far behind are the price of food, clothing and entertainment. On dis play at a haberdashery shop in Miami recently was a tie selling for $l,50 which, according to one newspaper columnist, found several eager cus tomers. But Florida’s big postwar boom doesn’t show up in the records of the U. S. Employment Service offices, in I various cities. In Tampa, for example, only 900 jobs were available for 5,654 registered workers March 1 with 2,400 more unemployed expected within the next two months. Of the 900 jobs currently offered, more than half are in unskilled cate gories and all but a few of the rest “FERGIE" KIND SAYS Now Is the Time to Buy Cool PHONES: Office 934 Home 693 KIND COAL CO.
