Shipbuilders To Benefit
From New Wage Proposals Officials of the North Carolina Shipbuilding company said yester day that any wage increases for shipyard workers recommended by the Shipbuilding Wage Stabiliza tion committee will benefit em ployes of the local company. The yard will go along with the program approved by this commit tee to the full extent applicable to \ individual yards, they added. The comment was given in con nection with a discussion of the recommendations of government procurement agencies for a 15 per cent wage increase for approxi mately 650,000 shipyard workers throughout the country. This proposal has been made to the Working committee of the Ship building Wage Stabilization con ference in an effort to break a deadlock in wage discussions which have tied up the conference since December 4. Sponsoring the offer were the War and Navy depart ments, the Maritime commission and the Labor department. Whether it will be accepted by the confer ence remains to be seen. All details as to application of the proposal have not been worked out. It was explained that, after the committee approves a wage in crease, it is not automatic. Rather, each shipbuilding company must apply for application to its yard and the application has to be ap proved before it can be effected. Officials of the North Carolina yard indicated that when definite recommendations are handed down by the committee, it will apply for participation in the increases pro posed.

COUNCIL TO HOLD SPECIAL MEETING A special meeting of City Coun cil members to discuss a proposal to purchase 111 fire alarm boxes is scheduled to be held Friday, Feb. 1. The matter was to haVe been discussed at the regular meeting scheduled for the preced ing Wednesday according to May or W. Ronald Lane. The decision to set the meeting up until Friday came yesterday following a discussion of the fire alarm box purchase by members of city officials, some of whom were not in full accord regarding specifications to be used. Specifications for the fire alarm boxes were presented by City Clerk J. R. Benson who said they met all specifications of the National Board of Fire Underwriters. He said his specifications were open and invited bidding of all quali fied concerns. Of these specifica tions, City Manager A. C. Nichols did not approve. Controversy originated at a meeting of council last fall when it was charged that specifications drawn up by City Electrician, L. T. Garren excluded all manufac turers, except the Gamewell company from bidding. Councilman Robert S. LeGwin made a motion that the city man ager, clerk and electrician redraft the entire specifications, furnish a copy to each council member and be prepared to handle the matter at the meeting Friday. Although the matter was refer red, apparently on these grounds, indications were that an agree ment would not be reached amon| the men instructed to revise the specifications. TABOR CITY LOSES TWO BUILDINGS BY FIRE ON WEDNESDAY TABOR CITY, Jan. 23—A $12,500 fire of undetermined origin, which razed two buildings here, was still burning last night but the fire de partment had it under control. Property destroyed by the blaze included a tack house owned by Mrs. D. J. Hughes and company, a crate manufacturing concern, and a garage operated by Bruce Watts. The tack house was used for storage purposes and 15,000 bean hampers stored in it were lost. Value of the hampers was esti mated at $3,000 and it is thought that at least $4,000 will be required to replace the building. There reportedly was no insur ance on the structure. The garage, housed in the same structure, contained $3,000 in auto equipment and $2,500 in vehicles. The fire started about 1 a. ip. and narrowly missed sweeping to the factory building. Prices for agricultural products in Wyoming are reported at the highest point since 1919.
