"You can't measure a thing (like this accurately because it's impossible to put a yardstick on 'human emotions," attorney Jerome Cahill said. "But the tragedy of this whole situation is the effect it's having on bereaved families." Bay Area Funeral Directors hit by the strike, agreed with civic leaders that there vas no immediate health problem because there are enough storage and preservation facilities. The strike by 341 members of [the AFL Cemetery Workers and Greens Attendants Union began March 1 after three cemetery associations rejected requests for a $2.50 daily wage increase.

Atty. Ted Stcvtu •aid today all the murder case of wealthy auto dealer Cecil Wells should be reviewed and the trial of Negro jazz drummer Johnny Warren be Ktponed. Stevens said the "unfortunate and tragic" suicide Tuesday of blonde Diane Wells, originally accused along with Warren of the murder, made the postponement of Warren's trial necessary. Stevens said the postponement, which ht requested yesterday, was planned even before Mrs. Wells took her own life in Hollywood, with an overdose of sleeping pills. Mrs. Wells and Warren were scheduled to stand trial April 5 for the slaying of the 51-year-old Wells who was found dead in bed in his Fairbanks apartment last October.

But today's modern -'orking girl, 35 or over, is practically ready for the shelf. At least that's what's in the minds of many employers, the U. S. Women's Bureau points out. Hardly a week goes by, declares the, bureau, that a letter does not come in from a woman somewhere in the United States who's looking for a job. The seriousness of ' the situation for hose job-hunters, many of them 50 or more, is shown in th- desperate tone of some of the let- :ers.

My age is against me. I am desperate and don't know where to turn. Could you please help me?" A Sacramento, Cal., job-searcher who had hotel and nurses aide experience says she's told she's now too old for that type of work. A 56-year-old "worried widow" writes: "Since my husband died nearly three years ago I have been knocking around from pillar to post and trying to get a decent job with a living wage." The employers of today, she writes, will make all kinds of excuses "to keep from hiring any woman after 35 years of age." * * * How come there are so many older women looking for jobs? Among persons 45 and over, there are now a million more women than men. Statistics show that while the entire population doubled "from 1900 to 1950, the middle-age group 45 to 64 tripled and the over-65 bracket increased four-fold. Add to this: that women have _ longer life-expectancy tiian men; that older women are freer to go into the labor market than young mothers; that some widows with insurance policies and pensions are finding they fall short of current living-costs. Barriers to their employment are real. But the reasons for these barriers, the Women's Bureau declares, may not be. * * * Although more exploratory work needs to be done on the relation. of work performance and learning to age, a few studies which have been made show that any loss of speed or muscular strength among workers past 40 is compensated for by increased skills and better judgment. Workers 45 and over, in 109 manufacturing pla:its studied by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, were absent less often than younger workers -and had fewer njuries. The older workers, however, recovered more slowly from njuries. The i >man worker who is mature and in .good health "has ;reat reserves of endurance and •ecovers rapidly from fatigue," t was discovered by the chief phychiatrist of a big insurance :irm. * * • The Women's Bureau, which does not funcion as a placement service, has put some_ practical suggestions on job-hunting into a pamphlet entifled "Over 40 and looking for a job?" • It recommends the job-applicant (1) use the public employment office and counseling facilities, (2) the placement bureau of their trade union, professional association or college, (3) watch newspapers for accounts of ew plants, branch bank's or department stores to be opened in the neighborhood. In job interview hints, the Women's Bureau warns against trying to act like a teen-ager.
