Reuther Is Hopeful
Os Winning Annual
Wage Without Strike
By the Associated Pre»s
CLEVELAND, Mar. 26.—Walter
Reuther, head, of the CIO and
its big Auto Workers’ Union, said
today he sees a good chance of
winning the guaranteed annual
wage from the auto industry this
year without a strike.
But he pledged that his union,
which Mr. Reuther said is the
Nation's largest labor organiza
tion. with a claimed 1.5 million
members, will win the year
around pay plan one way or an
other. with or without a strike.
"I guess I’m a born optomist,”
he told reporters. “I think our
case is so good we’ll be able to
convince them at the bargaining
table. But make no mistake
about it. our members will walk
out if the auto companies won't
guarantee us 52 weeks’ pay a
Convention Opening
Mr. Reuther’s news conference
came on the eve of the United
Auto Workers' biennial conven
tion. with delevates arriving in a
snowstorm for tomorrow’s open
ing session.
New contract negotiations with
General Motors and Ford, the
auto industry giants, start in
early April, a few days after the
convention closes. The guaran
teed wage plan, or guaranteed
employment plan as Mr. Reuther
prefers to call it, is the main
issue. The showdown is expected
in June when existing contracts
Wants Full Weekly Pay
The union wants the auto in
dustry to guarantee full five-day
pay every week of the year. Mr.
Reuther said it's not that the
workers want pay for idleness,
they want to be kept fully em
ployed. He said it should cost
auto makers nothing if they
regularize production some
thing, he said, that would sta
bilize the entire economy if gen
erally adopted.
Mr. Reuther said he expects
the convention to authorize a
proposed $5 monthly increase in
the present $2.50 monthly dues
to boost the union's present $7
million strike fund to $25 mil
lion by June.
State Bank of Chile
Paralyzed by Strike
By the Associated Press
SANTIAGO, Chile. Mar. 26.
Activities of the State Bank of
Chile were paralyzed today by a
walkout of 2,500 employes. The
dispute was attributed to “ad
ministrative grievances” without
relation to salaries.
The principal government
banking institution operates in
Santiago and Valparaiso. The
powerful Banking Federation of
employes reportedly has threat
ened to call a national strike
unless the dispute is resolved.

SSO Million Spent.
A memorandum from Navy
Secretary Thomas said the serv
ice had spent between $45 million
and SSO million on the Kentucky

will do with it. Questions about
the ship were raised during com

building program. Chairman
Vinson asked Mr. Thomas to
report on plans for use or dispo
sition of the Kentucky.
Later Mr. Thomas supplied
the memo, which did not dis
close any plans for the ship’s
use, but which made the follow
ing points;
1. It costs about $5,000 an
