STEEL MILL LABOR
ROLL EXCEEDS 1529
.Youngstown Plants Add to
Employes Despite New
Factory Methods.
By the Associated Press.
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, May 30
Figures released by steel companies
disclosed that Youngstown district
steel mills are employing more work
men than in 1929.
One of the largest steel companies,
the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co.,
has nearly 12,000 men on its pay roll,
the figures showed, more than It em
ployed in 1929. This condition has
been attained in spite of the displace
ment of old hand-worked sheet mills
by the company’s new continuous
strip mill, virtually automatic.
In some classifications there is an
actual labor shortage. This appears
chiefly in the highly skilled work at
open hearth furnaces and in rolling
mills, where five or six years’ ex
perience is needed to turn out a com
petent workman.
One employment agent said he
could use "skilled mechanics of al
most all kinds," and another said that
his company experienced a shortage
even in certain kinds of common
labor.
we nave recalled virtually every
man we ever carried on our pay roll
whom we can get now,” one steel offi
cial said. "In addition wre have hired
hundreds of new employes, mostly
young men.”
These young men Include college
graduates who have begun at com
mon labor wages In apprenticeships,
which will lead eventually to higher
pay at skilled jobs.
Groups of young men still are seen
around employment agencies, but ex
ecutives said many of these are not
physically adapted for mill work.
While re-employment of steel work
ers is virtually complete, many of the
men still are working only two or
three days a week. These are men in
departments which require special
skills, but have not enough orders to
work full time. The men on these
crews, officials said, have not the kind
of skill required In other departments
and so cannot be shifted.
In busy departments, crew's are be
ing worked more than the standard
40-hour week.
“We hate to do it.” an employer
said, "but we can’t find the skilled
men to make up another shift in these
departments.”

winnTpeggrain
By the Associated Press.
WINNIPEG, May 30.—The upward
trend continued as the Winnipeg
Grain Exchange operated on its own
with most outside markets closed.
Wheat prices finished %a34 cent
higher, May at 76 V4, July 77 7i, and
October 77 % cents.
Speculative demand for futures
continued as high temperatures again
were reported from the West's grain
growing area. Crop damage was
feared in many sections with no relief
from the five day heat? wave in sight.
With the Chicago market closed and
the Liverpool Exchange on holiday
over the Whitsuntide, local operations
were restricted.
A minimum of buying sufficed to
send prices sharply higher at the
opening. Despite occasional flurries
of profit taking, particularly in the
late stages of the session, most of the
early gains were retained and the
close was strong.
Reports from North Saskatchewan
told of an urgent need of rain over a
wide area. Though it was too early
in the season to estimate possible
damage to wheat just showing above
ground, deterioration was feared un
less moisture was received within a
, few days.
The result of the holiday in Great
Britain export sales of Canadian
wheat was small, estimated at only
200,000 bushels.
Cash and coarse grains were
firmer.

Home Construction Steps
Up to Highest Level
Since 1932.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, May 30— Industry
rode along the crest of the recovery
movement's recent peak this week, with
residential building supplying the
necessary forward impetus.
The Associated Press seasonally ad
justed index of industrial activity was
89.0, against 89.2 last week and 70.8
in the comparable period a year ago.
Residential building stepped up to
the highest level since early 1932, as
the demand held up well beyond the
normal seasonal top.
Automobile output slipped back less
than the customary seasonal amount,
with the high rate of retail sales acting
as a bulwark against the Summer re
action.
Total carloadings rose less than wras
to be expected, although miscellaneous
loadings gave a seasonal performance.
Cotton manufacturing, electric power
production and steel mill activity
| dipped slightly on an adjusted basis.

TRADING IN COTTON
QUIET BUTSTEADV
Increased Activity in Cloth
Markets and Weather
Bring Firmness.
Ey the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. May 30.—While com
paratively quiet, cotton has been gen
erally steady during the last week on
trade buying and covering.
Reports of continued unfavorable
weather in the South and increasing
activity in the cloth markets brought
in some commission house buying.
Prices reached the best levels of the
week and month in most instances
during Friday's trading, when October
sold up to 10.60, or about 47 points
above the low level touched toward
the end of April.
Buyers showed hesitation in follow
ing advances above 10*2 cents for the
new-crop months, but made their ap
pearance on moderate declines, and
the bulge late in the period was evi
dently promoted by crop complaints
from the droughty Eastern belt sec
tion and apprehensions of increased
insect activity or grassy fields in the
Southwest, where rains have been per
sistent.
The pool holdings of futures for
July delivery, understood to be in the
neighborhood of 317,000 bales, are said
to have had a stabilizing Influence on
that position.

NEW ORLEANS COTTON
By the Associated Press.
NEW ORLEANS, May 30 —Cotton
prices tacked and filled in a narrow
range in today’s short session, finally
closing from net unchanged to one
point higher for the day.
With other important world markets
closed for the holiday, speculative in
terest was at a low ebb and price
movements were quiet and irregular.
Considerable activity centered in
October which gained a point to close
at 10.54. December was net un
changed at 10.46 while other options
showed little net change on the day.
The scattered buying that did de
velop was based mostly upon con
tinued dry weather in the eastern por
tion of the belt.
A bullish goods market report was
another constructive development
Hedge selling supplied the contracts
j but did not appear in sufficient vol
' ume to warrant any price recessions.
Spot cotton closed steady two points
] up. Sales, 1,582; low middling. 10.73;
middling. 11.83; good middling. 12.43.

TREASURY WITHDRAWS
HALF WORKING BALANCE
By the Associated Press.
Since March the Treasury has
withdrawn about half its “working
balance” deposits in Federal Reserve
banks to meet the deficit in expendi
tures over receipts. But its deposits
in the reserve banks remain larger
than usual and are expected to be
augmented substantially from the
proceeds of June financing, notably
the mid-month sale of securities to
raise $1,000,000,000 in cash for bonus
and relief needs.
Deposits held by the reserve banks
for the Treasury's "general account”
compared as follows:
