IJt'i— Delayed effects of the steel strike will hit Ihe nation's automobile industry hard next week. With but few exceptions the factories closing tonight for the Thanksgiving Day holiday will remain idle until perhaps Dec. 12 or Inter. Fora. Hudson and Stutlcbaker and a few brsnch plants of other companies tiround the country will furnish all (he motor vehicle output next week. EVen Ford will 'cut down to Jour days' operation and Sturtebaker has announced It close on Nov. 30. will . . Thus weekly production will tumble sharply to probably not more than 50.000 vehicles. And the plant closings added fo those already down \yill bring temporary idleness I to an estimated quarter million automotive workers. In several instances unemployment will be relieved by the continuance of parts fabricating work in many plants. A number of car makers about (o swing over to new model production also have kevt a substantial number of (heir em- ployes al worlt on plant rearrange- | ments. Inventory, and parts, service' sales operations. Sleel Stocks r.ow Excepting for Pontiac all th General Motors shutdowns coincide with the completion of, 1349 model production. Ponl,ac swtmg over to 1950 model output two weeks ago and carried on until It exhausted Its steel stocks. ' The same is true also of u:<: various Chrysler divisions, of which all but Plymouth already have closed down for new model operations. Plymouth, benefiting by the diversion oi steel from the other divisions, has continued a fairly high output rate. It will close its assembly lines after Friday of this week Already closed also are Ford's Lincoln division, the Nash plants at Kenosha and Milwaukee Willys-Overland at. Toledo. and Kafser-Fra/er, which has been closed down since Oct. 24. has given no Indication when its assembly lines will reopen. However, the management has said the shutdown was not due to steel shortages but rather to the necessity lor reducing factory Inventories of finished vehicles. .Approximately two-thirds of the Industry's productive capacity will be affected by the Impending shutdowns. Industry authorities say the steel strike will have cost close to half a million vehicles before its final etfects have been felt In the automotive plants. i Movie Operators Note TOKYO.
