He has run every two years for senator or governor fication of 56 areas in March into categories indicating higher unemployment Twenty-five areas were moved into the category having substantial labor surplus. Detroit was changed from the category reflecting between 6 and 8.9 per cent unemployment to the one for areas with 12 per cent or more, a jump over the category with between 9 and 11.9 per cent unemployment. Moving into the 12 per cent category also were the Altaona, Scranton and Wilkes Barre Hazleton areas in Pennsylvania, and Providence, R.I. In addition to the revisions in major classifications, 32 smaller centers were added to to the list of smaller areas of substantial labor surplus. They were not listed, but the announcement said one was in Missouri. Seventeen other smaller areas including some in Missouri, were classified as labor surplus in February. Meanwhile, General Motors Corp. said five Buiek-Oldsmo-bile-Pontiac assembly division plans would be closed for one week, starting Monday. The plants are at Arlington, cost of the additional relief under several alternate methods. Democrats' Program. The Democratic program, sponsored by Mills and House Democratic majority leader John W. McCormack of Massachusetts, would provide an additional 16 weeks of benefits with the Federal Government footing the entire bill. Secretary of Labor James P. Mitchell told the Ways and Means Committee today he was not prepared "at the moment" to recommend extension of emergency unemployment relief to workers not entitled to jobless benefits under existing law. He said the Administration program for limited expansion of unemployment benefits under existing state programs "will take care of the major part" of the current unemployment situation. Unemployment increased in four-fifths of the 149 major employment areas of the nation between mid-January and mid-February the Labor Department reported yesterday. The department now designates 70 of the 149 major areas as areas of substantial labor surplus unemployment labor force. The 70 major industrial areas include St. Louis and Kansas City in Missouri and Peoria and Joliet in Illinois. The bimonthly report on classification of major employment areas as to adequacy of labor supply was not overly optimistic as to a reversal of the unemployment trend. "In the aggregate, the hiring plans employers reported to local public employment offices suggest the possibility of a slight employment pickup between mid-March and mid-May," it said. "Anticipated increases are considerably smaller than those of last year and are centered in seasonal non-manufacturing activities. The increase in insured unemployment for the 149 areas averaged 11 per cent between mid-January and mid-February, as compared with 44 per cent from mid-December to mid-January. The department said ordinarily there is little change between January and February. Classification Change. The unemployment increases resulted in change of classi an interviewer at the Marshall School center, 4342 Aldine place. "I talked to the heads of six families who had believed food was to be distributed from the center," Cole said. "They said their families needed food now, and could not wait until mid-April ior it. I had been told, in event emergency cases were presented, to telephone the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army said its staff could not even talk to the six applicants until next week, because the agency already has 100 such emergency applications pending now." Largest number of applicants was registered at the Vashon High School center, 3026 Laclede avenue, where 210 persons- were interviewed. Next highest registration was at Hadley Technical High ai ia.ou, Houings uuciaieu. The only answer, he continued, is adequate financing from the state which would enable the purchase of products according to dietary needs. Gunn stated that the surplus food program "is a question mark" at this time because there is no idea how many persons will apply nor how much it will cost. It is not known, he said, whether the plan will be expanded to include dependent children and persons on general relief. People Caught In Squeeze. The Rev. Mr. Abele presented figures which showed the cost of living had increased and the economy had declined. It seems that citizens are caught in a squeeze by big power groups, he declared. "The church," he asserted, "is not solely interested in ambulance service, but also in prevention." Moderator of the panel was Henry F. Chadeayne. He 'said one important difference be-tween the unemployment situation today and at the height of the Repression in the 1930s is that there exist at present state and federal public assistance programs. The community also has been mobilized to make a beginning to attack Atlanta, Linden, N.J., Kan. sas City, and Wilmington, Del School, 3405 Bell avenue, where 165 applications were received. Only three persons applied at Cleveland High School, 4352 Louisiana avenue. Applications received at Vashon today up to 3 p.m. totaled 207. At Hadley, 225 ap-plicants were interviewed. 10 Children in One Family.

Applications from tenants in public housing projects were much fewer than had been anticipated, city officials said. Only 154 applications were received. A total of 6102 families live in the projects. Special in a 1 Chadeayne said. Asked what positive steps had been taken to relieve unemployment, Rollings said the Federal Reserve Board was correcting some of the mistakes caused by the "tight money'' policy. Locally, Gunn said the passage of the Mill Creek bill by the Board of Aldermen was a positive step. 6 Surplus Labor Counties. In Washington, United States Senator Stuart Symington Creve Coeur, announced six counties immediately south of St. Louis have been designated as an area of substantial labor surplus by the Department' of Labor. A total of 5350 workers or 12.8 per cent of the labor force in the six counties, was idle as of Jan. 15, the Labor Department informed Senator Symington. The counties are Jefferson, Iron, Madison, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve and Washington. An area designated as having a labor surplus is eligible for preference in receiving Government contracts. Principal industries in the region are glass; cement and lead. In Jefferson City, J. E. (Buck) Taylor, new state employment security director, said Missouri had 29,500 fewer workers in non-farm jobs in mid-February than at the terviewing stations have been set up in the offices of the housing project managers. The city and county food distribution programs were established to aid employable workers unable to obtain jobs and ineligible for either direct relief payments from the state or for unemployment insurance benefits. Under Missouri laws, unemployed employables are not eligible for state direct relief payments, and many workers are not covered by the unemployment insurance. Social workers have estimated that one-third to one-half of the unemployed cannot obtain either public assistance or unemployment compensation. City, County Rules Similar.
