Quick told the club. Ford Motor Co., has just cancelled a contract with Central, which, together with a general cutback in auto production,, means 34 people will be laid off today. Expects Charges "I fully expect to have 34 charges of unfair labor practices liled against us a result, but there's nothing I can do to prevent the layoff. "A tightening of automobile credit together with the Congressional investigations concerning shipment of autos to dealers has made the industry pvetty conservative right now.

We took the contract as a means of getting our foot in Ford's door, which I think we did. "Now, that plant is going back into operation and Ford is going to give it the remainder of this contract by way of keeping it rolling as a source of supply for years hereafter. Slack Season "But this is always a slow time of year for us and these other factors have made it a little worse. Our outlook for getting some 1957 business later in the year is good." Geting back to the union, Quick said, "I was a national officer in a union and have no axe to grind with proper representation. "But," he added with a note of finality, "this is a last ditch stand on which may not only hinge the future of Central in Blytheville and that of my company in this segment of the manufacturing business, but also the future of. Blytheville as an industrial city." It was almost exactly one year Gertrude Metier Burial Today Mrs. Gertrude Hetler, who died at home Wedncsda Nettleton Cemetry her Leachville was buried in today.

Furthermore, the doctrine of noninterference in internal affairs was mutually agreed to at the time the United States recognized Soviet Russia.
