Gas Concern
Action Is Taken
To Prevent Halt
In Flow Of Fuel
Newark, N. J., April 5.— (ΛΡ) —
The State of New Jersey seized and
began immediate operation today of
nine gas works of the huge Public
Service Electric and Cîas t'-impaiiv j
at the very hour -set by six inde
pendent unions for a state-wide
strike.
The 1.200 workers involved re- :
niained at their p"st.-. assuming an 1
uninterrupted flow of gas for heat
ing and cooking to three-fourths of
New Jersey's more than 4,000,000
residents.
Gov. Walter Edge last night signed
the order authorizing the seizure
and operation of the gas works und
er a nine day old state utility strike
law. He empowered State Eabot I
Commissioner Harry Harper to act ■
as administrator of the plant "m ;
order that the manufacture of gas ι
may continue and that the public i
interest, health and welfare shall
not be interfered with."

DEATH RAT t. AMOinG
CHILDREN DROPPING
New York, April 5. — The death
rate among American children has
dropped sharply and almost contm
ously lor the past 35 years, accoVd
ing to the statisticians of the Metro
politan I.ife Insurance Company,
who characterize the period as "the
golden age ot child health." Th" de
crease 111 mortality ;it ages 1 to Η
was close to lin per cent among
white children between I91l-i.n,
and 1941-1945. These facts were
gleaned from a study maue anions
children insured in the Metropoli
tan's Industrial Department.
Terming it one of the brightest
chapters in the recent history of
American medicine and public
health administration, the statisti
cians say: "The gains also reflect
the econoiViic and social advanles
which have greatly raised the stand
ard of living."
In this study the death rate from
the principal communicable diseases
of childhood—measles, scarlet fever,
whooping cough, an I diptheria—has
declined well over 90 per cent in
the period reviewed. A striking fact
brought out is that in ages 1 to 14
years the death rate from all causes
combined now is considerable less
than the mortality from these four
communicable diseases alone only
35 years ago.

Washington, April 5. -(ΛΡ) — Soft
ro;iI operators talking l'ranklv pre
dicted today their strike deadlock
with .fohn L. l.ewis would last at
least until May 1.
Their pessimism over prospects of
.settling the five-day-old work stop

three weeks of negotiations for a
new contract with the United Mine

representatives seerr.ed inclined to
take a long wcok-end rcce. s and let
the dispute simmer.
The producers contend Lewis has
blocked settlement by insisting on
a prior committment for additional
mine safety measures and creation
of health and welfare fund tney es
timate would net th" union treasury
up to Sfio,nun.min annually.
