Pickets in Pittsburgh
Withdrawn as Strike
Against UP Continues
AFL - Commercial Telegraphers
today conrtinued their strike
against United Press bureaus here
and across the Nation, but with
drew pickets in Pittsburgh as the
Press of that city resumed normal
publication.
Because the Press is located in
the same building with the Pitts
burgh UP bureau, six striking
teletype operators picketed the
place yesterday.
j Many printers, stereotypers,
pressmen, mailers and truck driv
ers refused to cross the picket line
until management explained that
the strike was directed not at the
newspaper, but at the news serv
ice. The Press missed all but its
( final edition yesterday.
18 teletype operators and three
maintenance men remained off
the job at the Washington bureau.
The UP said it was able to main
tain "almost normal’’ service.
J. H. Nieberdlng, chairman of
the Washington UP local, said his
information did not bear this out.
He said clients of the Washington
City News Service had complained
and that the regular news report
was not complete.
Mr. Nieberding said the UP had
imported teletype operators from
Memphis, Nashville, Atlanta and
Jackson, Miss., to man the ma
chines.
Altogether, 265 opeartors and
maintenance men are striking for
j higher wages.

Publishers Oppose Boost in Mail Rates as Unfair
•y 4+» Associated Press
Spokesmen for publishers pro
tested yesterday that a proposed
boost in postal rates would be
unfair to many newspapers.
They appeared before the Sen
ate Post Office Committee, which
is considering a House-passed bill
to raise second-class rates by $15
million annually. The Post Office
Department says the increase is
needed to cut down the depart
ment's deficit.
Newspapers make up about half
of the second-class matter. Rate
increases in the House bill vary
according to the zones of distri
bution.
Frank A. Daniels, general man
ager of the Raleigh (N. C.> News
and Observer, who spoke for the
American Newspaper Publishers'
Association, said the ANPA be
lieves the zone increases would
put "an undue hardship on the
average newspaper” and an even
"greater burden on the medium
sized newspaper."
Charles McD. Puckette of the
Chattanooga (Tenn.) Times,
chairman of the Southern News
paper Publishers Association's
Postal Committee, suggested that
if the Senate finally decides in
creases are necessary they should
not total more than 25 per cent.
