New Career System
Will Allow Soldiers
To Reach Top Rank
The Army has set up a "career"
plan designed to give every man the
chance to earn the stars of a general.
Starting January 1, the plan
makes two basic changes in the
present procedure. Advancement in
the upper noncommissioned grades
will depend on competition within
an Army or theater; retention oi
grade becomes a matter of continued
meritorious service, with demotion
as the penalty for "coasting."
Enlisted men also will be encour
aged to try for officer candidate
schools or the Military Academy.
Flan to Encourage Enlisted Men.
The program was announced yes
terday, and Maj. Gen. Willard S
Paul, chief of personnel, told of a
news conference:
"Our objective is to widen thf
horizon for an enlisted man. en
hance the chances for him to im
prove himself, to climb the laddei
to four stars."
The plan works from the ground
up.
A private will have to pass a test
on general military subjects before
he can be made a private first class
Subsequent advancement will b«
on competition.
Competition on Different Levels.
Promotion through the last foui
grades to sergeant first class will tx
made by the unit commanders or
unit competition. The next step
senior sergeant—will be mad*
through competitive examinatior
within an army or theater. Pro
motions will be made by army 01
theater commanders on the basis
of points scored and available va
cancies.
Sergeant first class and senior ser
geant will replace, respectively, the
present grades of staff sergeant and
technical sergeant.
For promotion to grade one, mas
ter sergeant, the candidates wil
face service-wide competition, with
the War Department making pro
motions and assignments.
Gen. Paul said unit commanders
might not like the Idea, since most
of them want to pick their top men
But it is expected to benefit the
men.
In another move warrant officer
grades are to be revised in four
ranks, instead of the present two,
with top pay equivalent to that of
a major.

Pads Signed in Most
Of Steel industry,
But 2 Strikes Start
ty th· Aiiikiotad Prtu ,
NEW YORK, May 1.—Most ot
the Nation's steel companies and
their workers have agreed to
renew contracts on a pattern
increasing wages 15 cents an
hour, but expiration of negotia
tion deadlines last midnight
touched off two strikes in the
industry.
At Indiana Harbor, Ind., a spokes
man for the CIO steelworlcers said a
strike began at 12:01 am. at Inland
Steel Co., seventh largest producer
m the Nation, because contract
tenu had not been agreed on. Ne
gotiations were continuing.
The Inland walkout was the first
major one in the industry this year.
Picket lines also were organized
at midnight at the Trenton and
Roebling, N. J. plants of John A.
Roebling's Sons Co., cable manufac
turers, because of a breakdown in
negotiations. The company said its
final offer was equivalent to the ap
proximately $6 a week increase ac
cepted by other steel workers.
The 15 cents an hour, or $6 a week,
wage booet pattern which evolved
from United States Steel's negotia
tions last week was the basis for
contract agreements between the
steelworkers and four companies
that were announced yesterday. The
companies were Bethlehem Steel
Corp., Republic steel Corp., Crucible
Steel Co. of Am eric* and the Colo
rado Fuel St Iron Corp.
At Claymont, Del., the steelwork
ers reached a wage agreement with
the Worth Steel Co., averting a
strike planned for midnight. Nego
tiations on other issues continued.
The Youngstown Sheet & Tube
Co., which employes 17,000 in the
Youngstown, Ohio, area and an
other 7,000 in Indiana Harbor and
South Chicago, has extended the
old contract to Saturday night to
permit continued negotiations, a
union spokesman said.
Negotiations also continued be
tween the steelworkers and the
Pittsburgh Steel Co., with work eon
inuing at its Monessen, Pa., plant
In most cases the new contracts
:all for a 124 cents increase in
ttraight time pay. with adjustments
ind other benefits bringing the
total increase to about 15 cents. A
Bethlehem spokesman said its 70,
500 employes would average $1.61
straight time pay under the new
pay pattern.
