PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COUBIEH NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE IB, 195« One Firm Reaches Pittsburgh Milk Strike Agreement prrrsBDRGH, June 15. <AP) — An agreement, reached with one small firm today provided the only break thus far In the week-old •strike of 3,300 dairy workers in Pittsburgh and six western Pennsylvania counties. There were no signs of an industry-wide peace fls consumers continued either to drive to farms to buy their milk or go without. A hastily-organized band ot housewives—ted by Mrs. Nelson Bennett, mother of two—demanded the walkout b« ended. Both union and company officials agreed to give the women a hearing before resuming bargaining negotiations. Washington Strike Meanwhile. In the nation's capital settlement of the six-day-old Washington milk strike hinged en the question of whether dairies should shut down on Sundays. The striking union members are seeking a 40-hour rather than 48- hour work week with no cut in take home pay. The nine struck dairies agreed to shorter hours but insisted the milk plants be closed on Sundays. The union balked on the grounds the Sunday layoff would call for delivery of » three-day supply of milJc which might result In a loss of customers. Two-Hour Seulon A two-hour negotiating session broke up without agreement last night and another was set for today. The union didn't comment but an industry spokesman said: "We don't seem to be near agree ment at all." Harry A. Tcvis, president of AFL Local 205, milk and ice cream salesmen and dairy employes, said he has signed a contract wJth the D. and M. Dairy. Alfred Rombach, co- owner with Steve Dcvuty, said the p 1 a n t — employing 10 workers- would start processing milk "some- lime this morning." Union Asks Terms The union is asking the other 67 members of the Greater Pittsburgh Milk Dealers Association U> agree to the same terms as D. and M. These include: A 40-hour week with 48 hours pay for inside workers, restoration of a two-cents-iL-bottle cut drivers suffered when prices were lowered several montlis ago, and a 35 per cent increase to $13.50 in the daily ininimum for drivers. The dairies have agreed to restore the two cents, have offered a Sll daily minimum and 49 hours pay for 14 hours' work. Truman Sets Up State Study Group Department Stores Optimistic Over Rising Trend in Profits WASHINGTON, June 15. (/P) —*• Department stores have reversed the'declining profit trend of 1949 ; and : most stores now view coming months with "considerable optimism," a Harvard retailing expert reported yesterday. Nfalcolm P. McNair said the 30th annual survey of the Harvard University bureau of business research showed that department stores "bore the brunt" of last year's business recession. Profits dipped 27 per cent, to a figure of about 3 cenU for each dollar of sales, after taxes. Tills was the lowest level since 1938. Total dollar sales dropped for the first tlme^in 11 years, McNair said. He gave the . report to the controllers' congress, financial unit of the National Retail Dry Goods Association, at its midyear meeting here. Even today sales have not met : expectations, McNair said, largely because of lags in apparel and gen- .eral merchandise. He added: -: ^'Nevertheless department .store groMj- margins _seernn to: : have. ,lm,proved /measurably 'because' of 'lowr ,er markdowns, and expenses In many stores have now been brought under better control." . The report gave encouragement to the movement toward establishing outlying branch stores In large" clt- Jes.-Stores with branches showed better results than those without.
