UNION MEMBERSHIP Organized labor's millions of union m e m b e r s are distributed unevenly throughout the country. According to a Labor Department survey based on 1964 figures, nearly half the total membership of 17,187,700 was accounted for by only five states with more than a million unionists each--New York, ' California,' Pennsylvania, Illinois and Ohio. Total membership was 29.5% of all nonagricultural workers in the nation. Newsmap shows unionization : pereeiitages in the separate states. Not shown are Alaska, in the 30-40% category, and Hawaii, with 20-30%. Generally, the 19 states with so-called ' "right-to-work" laws on the books, banning union shops under a provision - of the Taft-Hartley Act which labor for years without success has sought to have Congress repeal, are among the lowest in union member percentages. * CLEANER LOOKING WASH ,, A -CLEANER SMELLING WASH' You just know it's the cleanest wash you can get.
