PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, MAY 31, 19-10 Strippers Study Unions' Demands Government Hopes That June 15 Strike Can Be Avoided. BY'CHARLES H. HERROM) WASHINGTON, Mny 31. (UP) — Employer reprcsonlHtlvcs todny studied maritime union dcmnnds for averting a June 15 shipping strike as the government pushed plans to keep vessels operating if no agreement Is. reached by that date. "Negotiations resumed under the gnidanco bit n federal mediator after Secretary of Labor Lewis H. Q&iwellenbach gave the parties an administration ultimatum lost night against striking. Schwellenbach told union and employer representatives that "we simply cannot have a maritime strike" in view of the international situation and the need for food In devastated areas. He requested them to meet In continuous negotiations here to resolve their dispule without, a strike. Schwcllcnbnch told reporters that the strike, ordered by one Independent and six CIO unions, would result in a complete shipping licit]). The seven unions presented their demands to the shipping operators at a government-sponsored conference late last night. Although the demands were not made public, the unions have been asking a 30 per cent wage Increase, a 40-hour week, adjustment of overtime pay and rc- trpactivity of any agreement to Jan. 1. Cap. Granville Comvny, War Shipping Administrator, said that his agency "has not worked out any plan with the navy or n other organization" for running • the ship lines. "But that doesn't mean that we are not talking about what, might have to be done it a strike occurs," he-added. Schwellcnbach refused to discuss any government plans for operating the ships if the maritime unions strike.

Eating Habits Of Children Get Attention Because the pro-school child needs foods to build bones, teeth, muscles and blood, a wise mother will try to get her child to eat daily one quart of milk, one egg. • one serving of meat or fish, green vegetables and some tomato or orange juice, Home Demonstration Agent Cora Lee Coleman told Mississippi County homcmnkers re- .cently. Liver or other similar food should be served once n week. Dried apricots may be served frequently. A baby at birth require from about 350 to BOO calories each day, she said, and at one year from 800 to' 1,200 calories. This need increases gradually r :to six years, when the child' shou'ld 'have "from il,400 to 1,600 fchJoripb.

As children are building bones, teeth, muscles and blood, they need more building foods in proportion to weight than an adult docs. At one year of age, the child will cat about one-third to one-half as much as his mother, at three years one-half or a little more, and at six years about two-thirds as much.
