I* « Reuther Sees Some Faults In A 35-Hour Work Week I- MIAMI BEACH, Fla.

RICHARDSON'S SHOE STORE 212 S. Main 35-hour week advocated by most other AFL-CIO leaders. Reuther, head of the Auto Workers Union, said in an interview that he was not opposed to a (straight slash in the present 40- hour week as called for by fellow federation leaders. "I just happen to prefer the flexible week idea," he said. Reuther said a 35-hour week could badly hurt some industries and actually cause increased unemployment. Instead, he proposed a formula that would reduce the standard work week automatically and progressively as unemployment reached prescribed levels. "The details are not important," he said. "It's a concept of a full employment week." There would be a payroll tax to accumulate a national fund if the work week should fall to, say, a 37-hour week.

Clarence Johnson and Francis Golden the fund would provide 40-hour regular pay to employes working the temporary 37-hour week. They would get additional overtime for work after 37 hours. If there was practically full employment—or as Reuther suggested an idle rate of no more than 2 to 2.5 per cent (it is now 5.8 per cent)—workers would stay on a regular 40-hour week. "What we really want," Reuther said, "is not more leisure but full 40-hour wages and work for everybody. If the economy cannot provide enough jobs the equalization fund from payroll tax collections would continue 40-hour pay but on a reduced work-week basis." The AFL-CIO Executive Council was expected .to issue a new appeal for its 35-hour week goal at windup sessions today. The council held 10-day winter meetings here. Traffic Jams On Sunny Days LOS ANGELES (AP)-Southern Californians enjoyed a sunny, smogless three-day weekend but had to contend with traffic jams on the highways and riptides at the beaches. The temperature reached 82 degrees both Saturday and Sunday in Los Angeles. At the beaches, readings were in the 70s. Waves were moderate but lifeguards reported riptides below the surface. About 100 swimmers had to be rescued. Motorists rushing to beaches and resort areas tied up traffic in many parts of Southern California. Major congestions were reported along the 100-mile route to Palm Springs. Wellsville Area News Six weeks examinations are being given to Wellsville grade and high school students this week.

Bishop To Speak At K-State MANHATTAN (AP) - Bishop Eugene Slater of the Kansas area of the Methodist Church will speak Wednesday at dedication services for Wesley Foundation Methodist student center, at Kansas State University. Dr. James A. McCain, K-State president, also will speak. Among those present will be Mrs. B. A. Rogers, whose late husband was minister of the foundation for 38 years until his retirement in 1958. The building has been in use for 12 years. The Rev. Warren Rempel, present director of the foundation, gave this explanation of why it is being dedicated now: "John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, was a very frugal man. He believed in paying all his debts, then celebrating the completion of a project. The last payment was made recently on this portion of the building, so having the dedication now is in keeping with the spirit of Wesley."

Claim To Have Revived Prehistoric "Lizards" LONDON (AP)-RuMian scientists have brought too prehistoric ritong — vertebrates resembling lizards—back to life. They lay frozen solid for 5,000 yean in Siberia, Moscow radio said today. The story of the tritons, the >roadcast said, suggests that space travelers might be put in a sort of deep freeze to make long journeys without the encumbrance of huge amounts of supplies. The broadcast gave this account: "Some time ago Soviet geologists found something resembling lizard at a depth of about 25 feet in the frozen ground of northern Siberia. "It revived after being kept at room temperature for some time Scientists finally classified it as a four-toed triton, one of the oldest and most primitive order sof tailed amphibia that inhabited the earth in the Mesozoic era (the dinosaur age). "Judging by the state of the earth in which it was found, biologists concluded that the triton had been asleep for about 5,000 years. "On awakening the creature behaved exactly as it had thousands of years ago. It ran around, ate and slept. It was not afraid of people, willingly eating wild berries, flies and mosquitoes out of their hands.
