Labor observers predicted that the strike may equal or surpass in length the 113-day General Motos strike which began in the fall of 1945. The union -has demanded n 30- cent hourly pay raise and fringe benefits that would bring the increase to 35 cents an hour.

Then the'General As- semly would have to approve the nomination with a two-thirds majority vote. The commissioner's -task would be to sit In Palestine, presumably in Jerusalem, and perform two functions: 1.
