It lumps together two wage re- openers-provided for each nine months in the union contracts— and is a compromise between a CIO demand of 1 cents and management offer of 6 cents. It does away with further pio- ductior, union negotiations until the current contracts expire next Oct.

W*~Storms* will feature the start of, 1D55 o.veri most of the country but March will come and go like a lamb. And it'll be a pleasant summer with temperatures near normal and preci- ilatlon below. So says the new edition of "ag- icultural Almanac." or "Lancaser Almanac," a little boolc many erson.5 have sworn by since John Juincy Adams was President. In its 130 year history, the al- ; anac has covered practically ev- ry subject from farming to higher sthetics. This year's book runs rom a day by day look at the wea- icr to a recipe for hot tamale ie by Vice President Richard Nix- n's wife, Patricia. On page 33, there's a formula or predicting the number of snow torms per winter, if you can find a duck. 'The date of the first snow tells w many snows will fall during he winter—thus if the first snow alls on the 15th of a month, then snows can be expected. But to qualify as the first, the snow must produce enough cover so you can rack a duck through it." Then, "if there's enough blue sky to patch a Dutchman's breeches, you can safely hang put your wash." That's as Pennsylvania Dutch as shoo-fly pie and the lament, "papa is all," meaning the old boy has passed away to his reward. The book contains plenty of advice on how to run your affairs in ne with the moon and the signs of the zodiac. The sign of the crab, or example, is good to prun grape vines while the Ilsh is best fo making "sourkraut," The almanac says cows that lis- ii to radio nmsic produce more nilk. But Holsteins prefer soft, semi-classical numbers; Guernseys ike western songs, and Jerseys prefer swing. The book also ILsts five rules "to make shaving a happier experience" and says most men shave 25,000 times during their lives. Returning to the weather, II the FUEL OIL G. 0.

Success Blamed In Hollywood Divorce Case HOLLYWOOD W> — Actor Edmund Purdom's sudden rise to fame Is blamed by his wife for their sep- aralon yesterday.
