U.S. Job Situation Shows Pick-Up' After 8 - Year Low BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Bj Norman Walker WASHINGTON, April:4. W—The nation's unemployment, situation Is showing improvement after sinking to Its worst condition In eight years. 'New census bureau figures show 561,000 fewer Jobless In March .than IK February. The,March total, was 4,123,000 compared with an eight- year high of 4.684.000 In February. , Sfirt for Gain i Secretary of Commerce Sawyer, in announcing the new figures yesterday, said they are encouraging and se*m,to. mean an early start on an expected spring employment gain. Employment rose nearly 600,000 from 56.953.000 In February to 67,551,000 In March but Sawyer'was only cautiously cptimistic, saying: . "It Is too early to say whether It reflects much more than the normal pick up in seasonal Industries and the end of. the coal dispute Just prior to the March survey." The census bureau based its March .estimates on data collected March 11. A report .from Director Robert C.; Goodwin of the Labor Department's Bureau of Employment Security Indicated further Improvement later In March. Claims Dropped . Goodwin said unemployment Insurance clatas dropi«d for the week ended March 25 to their lowest level of 1950. He said "expanding Job opportunities in a number of states were largely responsible", for this— meaning that more. jobs have become available. There his been an almost un- interruptwT decline In Jobless insurance claims since late January. Goodwin said unemployment among workers^ covered .by the Insurance plan declined from 7.1 per cent In early February to 67 per cent In early March. 'jobs'Appeal Made. An appeal to employers to maintain full employment by' creating new, jobs and pushing new products was made here yesterday by Stanley Marcus, a leading Texas merchant. Marcus-.Is executive vice president of the Nelman-Marcus Department Store In Dallas. "If business doesn't provide the constantly expanding economy that will provide Jobs for all, then government will/'' Kama told the American Retail Federation: The CIO announced plans meanwhile to bring to Washington several groups of union members and officials from "about a dozen areas of serious unemployment." The plan Is for them to talk over the situation with government' officials, economists and members of Congress, Seal-Catchers Seek Status WASHINGTON, April 4. 500-odd scnl-catching Aleuts of Alaska's pribllof Island want to be civil servlcs employes Instead of government wards. The Interior Department, which administers their work, approves of the idea—In general terms, at least. It has asked the Civil Service Commission for a ruling. The Pribliol Islands are the summer-lime home of about 80 per cent of the world's fur i^als. : In 1910 the US. government took over management of the herds, then growing scarce. Under its control the seals have increased; the'Prib- llof natives have been conducting the annual harvest. A Civil Service Commission spokesman said the agency always has looked upon the natives as wards of the government, not civil service employes. He said the question is being re-examined. Uncle Sam's Payless Workers on Increase WASHINGTON. April 4. OT—The ranks of those.who work without pny for Uncle Sam are Increasing again., \ The civil Service Commission said today that 82,311 persons are donating their services to the federal : government. This compares with a war-time peak of 334,000 in July. 1015. and a postwar low of less than 25.000 In 1947. Workers giving their time Include volunteers helping hospitalized veterans, clerks, advisers, etc., in .the selective service syslem. and certain weather observers, n akers of public health reports, deputy game wardens, etc. . : DOUBLE CHECK—Startling innovation in evening wear is the plaid dinner jacket with salin lapels, worn above by Ted McPherson of Chicago.

April 4, (AP) _.. shoot up n 'half-dozen guldnd missiles, let them hang above the pull of gravity, and there you have It: Radar reflectors that mnkc it possible to delect objecU anywhere on the surface or the earth. That's not Buck Rogers talk. It was cited as a definite possibility • last night by one of the nation's i foremost authorities on guided missile development. [ All that's lacking Is "money and • lime," Dr. Charles Green, a missile specialist with the General Electric Co., told the Maryland section of ! the American Institute ol Electrical i Engineers. Here is the way he explained it: • Shoot a special missile developed from an . Improved V-2 rocket 100 miles into space. At that point it has been calculated the pull of gravity and the pull away from the earlh. caused by the earth's spin, would balance exactlv. He added. In technical tntim. that the distance could be Incrc.ised with varying conditions and types ol mls- sile-sateiites. Then, with these man-made sat- eliles hanging In space, radar beams — such very high frequency 'thai they travel In a straight line and do not conform to the curvature of the earth—would be timed to re- Referendum Is Likely on Integrated Bar LITTLE ROCK, April \. (*>-^A referendum election amon^ the lawyers of the state may be called to decide the question of an Integrated bar of Arkansas. This was indicated yesterday when the Arkansas Supreme Court heard oral arguments favoring the formation of a single association for the attorneys. Chief Justice Griffin Smith said he thought all the lawyers should be given an opportunity to decide. He asked Abe Collins, DeQueen attorney, for his opinion on a referendum election. Collins, who filed the petition seeking an Integrated bar, said most of the state's lawyers had b«ri polled and expressed approval of the proposal. A disagreement arose between Smith and Collins on the number of lawyers In Arkansas entitled to consider the matter. Collins contended there are only 1,100 lawyers practicing In Arkansas. The chief Justice said supreme court records show a total of 2,200 attorneys who hove paid license fees. The chief justice asked what part should the attorneys net engaged In actual law practice play In deciding ihe Issue. "TJicre Just isn't any need of going through the whole thing again " replied Collins. "We have gotten a representative opinion on the matter." . „ Collins said an Integrated bar would give belter service to the attorneys.

Perhaps not once, but several times against the several missiles. "Dors it all sound Impossible?" he asked. "Well, the moon's been doing it for centuries. "The theoretical basis for such satelite.s is available. What's lack- Ing Is money and time." Then he added: "Ten years ago we were talking about a sonic barrier that put an upper limit to any airspeed. Remember?"
