When the Quorum Court met later that month; a three-mill tax, which had been discussed as probably adequate for financing construction,, was entered on the county tax books along with the one-mill maintenance levy. Neither was collected, however, because of a delay In the project caused by lack of federal matching funds. Hospital funds allocated to Arkansas were not.forthcoming until' early this .vear, and when the allocation was made it was taken by Gov. McMath for use in building a new medical center in Little Rock. Pending further allocation of federal funds, however, the Health and Safety Committees of the Blythe- vilte and Osceola Chambers of Commerce continued to work on plans for the two^hospitals. The hospital man voted on In the November, 1950. election was the second to come up in recent years. The first was advanced by ths Osceola Junior Chamber of Commerce, which petitioned County Judge Roland Green to call a special election in 1949. On Aug. 2t, 1949, this election was called for Oct. 11. However the election plans were- cancelled suddenly on Oct. 10. It was explained that official poll books were not available at that time to determine the qualified electors In the county.

By mutual agreement, 2O of these unions-corn- prising about 1,2OO,OOO rtien, or more than 90%-are working under wages and rules agreed to by them arid the railroads. But leaders of three unlons-wlth only about 130,000 men, or leis than lO%_,tit| refuse, after more than a year of neaotiallons, to accept similar wage and rofes agreements. These are even more favorable than the terms recommended by the Emergency Board appointed by the President. settle [minis On June 16, 1950, an Emergency Board appointed by the President under the terms of the Railway Labor Act-an Act largely fathered by the uniona themselves — made 1U recommendations on certain wage and working conditions ("rules" in railroad language) which had been in dispute between employes and the railroads. More Th»n 90& of Employes Accept Since then, terms equal to or belter than the Board recommendations have been accepted by about 1,200,000 railroad em- ployes-more than 90% of the total of all - worKers. They are represented by 20 of the a standard railroad unions. Less Th»n 10% Refuse But three unions— with about 130 000 men, or less than 10% of the total-have refused to accept, even after months of negotiations. These three unions are the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, and the Order of Railway C °™uc i tor8. rhese are three of the so- called operating" unions. Already the highest paid men in the industry, their leaders demand still nlrther advantages over other workers. In all, there are about 270,000 operating •mploves. But not all of them, by any merereesl « < l by BLE, BLF&E, .u ter of fact - 1c88 than to be exact-are in these ,,-. More than half-about 140,0po--are in other unions, principally the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen. What make, the whole situation so hard to understand is that these HO.OOO op? fu re WOI '''n« under wages the leader> of fh « o they cannot agree to. What Do the lUilrowJ, Offer? principles of the Memorandum Agreement of December 21. They have been working under this agreement since May 25. What About Wages? Under the terms of the agreement, yard engineers, firemen and conductors would now be receiving a wage increase of .$.34 an hour ($2.72 a day) and road engineers, nremen and conductors would now be receiving an increase of 19M cents an hour v»l.&b per day). Large sums of retroactive pay have nlroady accrued nnd if the agreement is carried out, will be paid promptly. What About "Cost of Living" Increases? The White House Agreement includes an escalator clause under which wages will be geared to changes in the Government's cost-of-living index. Two such increases — Annland July, 1951-hHvealre.idy been paid to the 90% of railroad employes covered by signed agreements. Wh»l About (he 40-Hour Week? The White House Agreement calls for th« establishment of the 40-hour week in principle for employes in yard service. The employes can have it «ny time after January 1, 1952, provided the manpower situation is such that the railroads can get enough men to perform the work with reasonable regularity at straight time rates If the parties do not agree on the $$??}"% ° f "vailaWlily of manpower, th« \\ hite House Agreement provides arbitration by areferee appointed by the President. What Else Do the Union Leaden Demand? Tne continued quibbling of the leaden of the thre« unions has to do principally with rules changes, which have already been agreed to by the Brotherhood of Railroad Irammen. Of these, the principal on* seem» to be that having to do with 10- called interdiviaional service"—rum which take in two or more seniority districts. The union leaders would bar progrcst and efficiency in the industry, and better service to the public, by maintaining a situation where they can arbitrarily stop a railroad from establishing such inter- divisional runs. The carriers propose that if a railroad wishes to set up an intcr- dwisional run, the railroad and the uniom should try to agree on S uch run and the conditions which should surround its establishment, snd if the railroad and the unions can't agree, the matter will be submitted to arbitration. But the three union leaders still refuse. Rules Can B« Arbitrated The railroads have not only offered thsM three union* the same rules agreed to by the BRT and covered by the White Hous« Agreement, but have even agreed to «ub- mit such nllea to arbitration.
