Of Wages
Chairman Davis of the War La
bor Board said the WLB in stab
ilizing incomes less than $5,000,
will act on the presumption that
wage rates prevailing on Septem
ber 15, 1942, are proper. The Board
said If a group of employees has
received increases amounting to 15
percent in their average straight
time rates over the level prevail
ing on January 1, 1941, the Board
will not grant further increases as
a correction for maladjustments
The wage rate inequalities and
the gross inequities which may
require adjustments under the sta
bilization program are those which
represent manifest injustices that
arise from unusual and unreason
able differences in wage rates.
The Office of Price Administra
tion announced all passenger cars
will be eligible for recapping ser
vices or for replacement tires un
der the national mileage program
effective November 22, but motor
ists will be limited by quotas to
be assigned to rationing boards.
The grade of tire allowed in case
recapping is possible will be deter
mined by the amount of mileage
allowed applicants in their gas ra
tion books.
Motorists asking more mileage
than the basic ration must fur
nish specific detailed information
about their driving repuirements on
forms issued by OPA and availible
from November 12-15 at school
houses designated as registration
