By SAM DAW80N NEW YORK — Pencil-pushini drudgery — the making and keep ing of businesrf records and re ports — may yield soon to smaller and cheaper mechanical brains Electronic computers can figuj- in a few hours what a battery of clerks takes months to compute. But engineers say these machines soon may come into more general use in business due to new developments: electronic tubes only one- third the size of those now used; and. a new substitute, the transitoi — little larger than your fingei nail — which can do many of the tasks the tube now performs, without overheating as the tube often does. These developments could bring the mechanical brain down 19 a size and cost practical for businesses staggering under a mounting load of clerical work. The number of pencil pushers and typists has increased in the past 25 years out <bf proportion to the increase in factory workers. The expense is terrific. Some companies sec the mechanical brain as the answer. Al- . _ ready some 100 companies, large Continued from Page Three mid small, are developing owe- Ironic computers. Waller Mitchel Jr., managing director of the Con trollers Institute, says the machines may bring iibout "a major revolution',' In office work. Controllers are the men who do the muster-mind figuring and keep the records for business. Mitchell foresees the day when "we shall need supervisors and management accountants adequately trained to understand these machines, Their potentials and their application. 1 " One company already has a machine that keeps a complete record of 10,000 items of inventory.

They've either got to be on leash or have their owners with them. Every once in a while we've printed a story about the police putting more squirrels in the park — pets whose antics amuse 'park- goers in cities everywhere. Now loose dogs are killing the little fellows. Dogs aren't dumb. They're out in the park chasing squirrels simply because their owners aren't ' looking after 'em; a few rounds of disciplining with the owner along * would tell a dog that Fair park squirrels aren't for him.

ImonCook to Command Hope Guard First Lt. Imon G. Cook assumed command of Company "A" 153rd Infantry, last Tuesday', July 8. He replaced First Lt. Ernest A. Porter, who resigned the command because o£ ill health. Lt. Cook came to the Hope National Guard Company, from "C" Company of Prescott, where he had been assigned since 1939. He was mobolized with the Pres cott company during the last war, and was sent to Alaska for a tour of duty. With summer camp coming up in August, the new commander is making a plea for all employers to release employes who are guardsmen, for the two- weeks training encampment. Inasmuch as it is mandatory that all members of the National Guard attend summer camp, the cooperation of all employers is asked. There will be a group of men from Nashville, Hope, and the sur rounding communities, at the Hope Armory next Tuesday night at 8 p.m. to enlist in the National Guard so that' they will be able to go to camp on August 3. All men who are intending to join the guards in time to go to summer camp, are urged to be in this group so that the supply ser geant can issue uniforms and equipment to the new recruits without too much confusion. The National Guard of Hope is particularly interested in young men from 17 to IBVfe years of age. Of course, anyone from 17 to 35 is eligible to enlist, provided he can qualify. Contact M/Sgt Earl R.

Eisenhower this week, Chairman Wallace Townsend asked Ike what his attitude would be toward present state GOP organizations if he were nominated. Eisenhower, Townsend related replied that he would work with them if they were reputable To Shoot All Unattended Dogs in Park Dogs permitted by their owners to run loose have invaded Hope's Fair park and killed at least two of the pet squirrels recently placed there by the city police, Chief Clarence E. Baker said today. Bird dogs hunted down and killed two of the pets this week, the chief said, and others may have been killed earlier.. Originally 14 squirrels were placed in the park early this spring in an effort to improve Fair park facilities. Chief Baker said that in view of these deprecations he has ordered city police to shoot all unattended dogs found in Fair park. Dogs appearing in the park must either be on leash or attended by the owner, who will be held accountable for theif actions. The police chief pointed out that the rule now being invoked in Hope is the same rule enforced everywhere by cities having wild life in their public parks. The police means to protect the squirrels that have been placed in Fair park for the entertainment of the park-going public, and dog-owners re duly warned, the chief said. word from the industry on a proposal to agree to resumption of iron ore production. Executives of 10 largo steel producing companies, after mooting in New York Tuesday, said they would ask Iho steelworkers to end the companion strlkn of 23,000 ore- miners in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin. Officials of the steel industry fear shutdowns next winter because of a shortage of- iron ore They're afraid they can't build up stockpiles because iron ore won' be shipped on the Great Lakes clur Ing the winter. This came from a source clos to Philip Murray, head of th steelworkers union: "We have not received a forma tecmest from the industry concern- •fBf'Mhe iron ore •-situation! Wo have nothing to say on the matter now." There is absolutely no indication of further negotiations to break the impnssc, which has been heightened by the union's demand that a new contract embody a union shop whereby all steelworkers will be required to join the union, Clarence B.
