_ SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 1959 BLVTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER Auto Workers Union Dwindling PAGE THREW By A. F. MAHAN JR, .The UAW has laid off 173 staff workers paid by international headquarters and its officers and executive board members were asked voluntarily to take a five per cent salary cut. They had given up 10 per cent for 18 weeks last year, but that was restored. The staff cutback among $3,000- and-down employes amounts to roughly' 20 per cent O f tne inter- n§t.ional's work force. Officer salaries are scaled downward from President Walter P. Reuther's $M,000 to ?12,500 for executive board members. The UAW had an average monthly dues-paying membership of 1,026,050 in 1958, down 289,411 - from the 1957 average of 1,315,461. Secretary-Treasurer Emil Maze reported the. UAW operated $2,373,298 in the red in 1958. ; The dues-paying drop amounts to $434,115 a month at the international level. The international gets $1,50 of the union's basic minimum dues of $3 a month. However, 40 cents is earmarked for specific uses such as strike tjenefits. ; Using the 1938 dues-paying membership average, the international's income was $1,539,073 a month or $18,468,876 for the year, including earmarked funds. 1 Staffers laid off by the UAW could collect severance pay, amount depending upon length of Service. Employes contribute 5 per cent and the union 11 per cent (p a pension-severance fund. If laid off, employes can draw down their own, plus the union's contribution, or leave it for a pension to be claimed at 65. I The UAW doesn't represent just auto workers. Its full title is: International Union, United Automobile, Aircraft and.Agricultural Implement Workers of America. | And 1958 was a rough year for all but the agricultural implement industry. There were strikes and heavy layoffs in autos and airplanes, and some strikes in farm Equipment. These cut two ways into UAW receipts. Strikers pay j>o dues and siphon strike-support funds. Those laid off pay no dues. A rule is you must work 40 hours a month to be'liable for dues. •The UAW strike fund paid out 22 million dollars in 1958 to strikers in 279 plants. A $1 a month assessment was levied on all workers this year to build the fjinri back from 19 million to 25 million dollars. . But strikes and layoffs didn't cause all the UAW's dues-paying headaches. It developed what appears to be a chronic one in its automobile division several years back. | In the auto industry's biggest year, 1955, when it built more than nine million cars and trucks, total production-worker employment of assembly and supplier plants was figured at 748,400 by In Line For Another Star WASHINGTON Ufl — Maj. Gen. Bernard Schrievcr, chief of the Air Force Ballistic Missile Division, is in line for a third star and a new job. The White House announced that President Eisenhower will nominate Schriever to be a lieutenant general after Congress returns from its Easter recess. It also was announced that Schriever is to take over as chief of air research and development, succeeding Lt. Gen. Samuel E. Anderson, who recently was reassigned to air materiel. The Air Force said Schriever's deputy Brig. Gen. Osmond J. Rilland, will become head of the bal- Ilistic missiles division. College Employes Are Dismissed GAINESVILLE, Fla. W>-Dr. J. Wayne Reitz said Friday 14 em- ployes at the University of Florida had been dismissed tor homosexual activities. "Action has also been taken with respect to the few students involved," Reitz said in a statement. A legislative committee investigated and submitted a report to the university and the Board of Control but the contents were Expert Sees Cold Vaccine CHICAGO WS—An expert Friday predicted a vaccine that will prevent from 60 to 70 per cent of all common colds probably will be available within the next two years. Dr. Thomas G. Ward, professor of virology at the University of Notre Dame, said he believes a vaccine can be developed against "an acceptable proportion of the common colds." He said 75 to 30 per cent of common colds are caused by a group of viruses or a group of bacteria of the streptococcus type. Vaccines made from dead or tamed viruses can be injecetd into the body and develop resistance against viruses. "1 realize that I have stuck my neck out," Dr. Ward commented in an interview in Today's Health, a magazine published by the American .Medical Assn. the Bureau of'Labor Statistics. Production has fluctuated since, but there has been a production- worker decline every year: to 648,500 in 1956, to 630,100 in 1957 and down to a preliminary estimate of 476,700 in 1958. Many factors have been blamed or credited for the steady decline of Jobs in auto-making. But one 'ands out. This is automation. Among other factors has been a trend within the auto industry to decentralize or, as some put it, follow with more efficient plants the market as it develops with mushrooming population growths.

British See War Threat LONDON «i — Responsible British authorities said Friday if the forthcoming East - West foreign ministers conference fails, the West must be ready should war come. The British believe the West now is confronted with these choices — continued cold war ten-, sion, or a solid attempt to end or reduce this tension. British sources point out that a continuance of the cold war would carry a grave risk of war by miscalculation. Officials said that is why Foreign Secretary Selwyn Uoyd, in Washington talks, argued strongly for negotiations which offered promise of reducing East-West tension. But Britain is firmly committed to the idea that West Berlin must 'continue free and, along with its Allies, is prepared to make heavy sacrifices and take risks to preserve the city's freedom.
