14 THE REGISTER-NEVA'S — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS MONDAY, JULY '9, 1951 STRIKES TIE UP SHRIMP OUTPUT IN MISSISSIPPI Other Walkouts in N. Y. Bakeries, Minneapolis Hospitals, Addressograph Plant. Broadway Actress Brings Stage Troupe Southwest By Associated Press Strikes today tied up production of shrimp in Mississippi and Mocked delivery of goods from 16 major New York bakeries. A back to work move in the Minnesapolis hospital strike was clouded by refusal of four institutions to reemploy strikers. These were the walkout developments: PascaRoula, Miss. —Gov. Fielding Wright of Mississippi sought to settle the strike of AFL shrimpers in this state. Some 4,000 to 5,000 persons were idle in the walkout which began with sporadic outbursts of violence Saturday. The walkout arose over Shrimp prices and fishing grounds. • NEW YORK— Mayor Impellit- teri called a conference with mediators as the strike of 4,000 AFL bakery drivers entered its second week. The walkout has been marked by 'assaults on non-striking drivers for bakeries not involved in the dispute. Issues are a 40rhour work week spread over five days instead of six, and a demand for a wage boost from J $65 to $75 a week. MINNEAPOLIS— Service. em­ ployes of 10 hospitals were under orders of their AFL union to return to work. Some were back at their jobs, but four of the hospitals said they would not take strikers back, charging they walked out illegally. Deliveries of food and supplies were resumed after a court order halted picketing. There has been violence in the dispute. The union charges the hospitals refused to abide by an arbitration settlement on wages and working conditions. A committee appointed by Mayor Eric Hoyer scheduled a meeting on strike issues this afternoon. '• CLEVELAND— Production of printing equipment and parts was stopped today at the Addresso- graph-Multigraph Corp. when 2,400 supervisory and production workers refused to cross picket lines of 600 AFL office workers. The office fore walked out Friday after rejecting a management offer of a $10.40 monthly pay increase to all salaried workers SLAVE UNDERGROUND ; Perhaps 100,000 southern slaves were spirited to freedom in the north by "conductors" on the un- deground railroad, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica.

She is an accomplished actress, having played three years with Gertrude Lawrence in "Lady In The Dark" and another three with the Lunts in "O Mistress Mine."

The salaries are less than on Broadway, but enough to live on * * * * THREE YEARS AGO, Miss Lee took a departure from the usua' summer theater circuit in the east She went to Santa Fe., N. M., a theater starved town. By whatever means possible (and there were many) she raised enough money to build a 250-seat theater. For the first season, she imported a group of players direct from New York. 'We were an immediate sue cess," she told me. "Santa Fe is a wonderful town for theater. We drew from other areas, too. "When we opened up I told my business manager that I expected a lot of customers from Amarillo, Tex., which is my home town. After we start operation, between 40 and 65 people drove the 300 miles from Amarillo every week." * * * * THE SUCCESS OP' THE PLAYHOUSE prompted expansion.
