Ihe planes or either body. The economic facts of life «re being ignored by General Electric in PitLsfield, charges the president of the Independent Union of Electrical Workers. Local 2.55 President Joseph J. LaCasse made this comment after the company refused the union's invitation to join a community task force lo Washington to seek defense contracts to bolster GE's sagging Pitlsfield ord' nance department. In rejection Ihe company said the proper way to get more business is through agresslve compe tilion rather than community po> litical pressure.

"It is difficult to understand," Mr. LaCasse said, "that when jobs are concerned and not profits, political pressure is personally obnoxious to local OE management and the ABC" The ABC — Association of Business and Commerce in Pittsfield—also turned dowr the union proposal. LaCasse said he is afraid the GE ordnance department, now midway through a 1,000-man layoff, will be forced to continue laying off next year if the company does not get more defense contracts. The ordnance department; is 100 per cent dependent on defense contracts. Nautical Milk Man Takes To Speedboat at Windsor Talk to arty Air Force veteran.Where else? "Milk runs," they say, "are, Part of the whole controversy plum assignments. Always easy and no bother." Talk to Albert "Mike" yiner,' 23-year-old Pittsfield milkman and founder of Windsor Pond's centers around rights of way and deeds and who owns what. Possibly tomorrow's meeting will determine who does own what. However, it was learned that all you'll catch a different pitch. Yesterday afternoon — for the second time—Mike made his last deliveries to five customers on Windsor Pond's far shore. But instead of using the usual rowboat transportation, a method which kicked up no disturbance in the deceitfully quiet lake waters, Viner bowed out with a flourish using a motor boat which stirred up a great wake behind him. Thai, modestly speaking, is ill-famed "rowboat run" and deeds were surveyed from a stationary cement post and ownership was decided from Hint point. Unfortunately, nobody has been able to find the cement post for years.
