Women Workers Hit New Record veyed had hospital insurance, nearly all the plans providing at least some surgical cost reimbursement. More than half the workers also were protected by sickness, accident and medical care insurance 3. Six of every 10 workers were covered by pension or retirement plans. It was found three-fourths of the workers surveyed have the entire cost of this coverage paid for them by their employers. Proportions Vary Generally, the proportions ol plant and office workers covered for various benefits were about the same. However, 71 per cent of office workers surveyed were covered by pension plans und only 5(i ! per cent of plant or factory workers were so protected. Sickness or accident insurance covered 65 percent of plant workers, but only 45 per cent of office workers. A greater proportion of office workers were covered by various types of paid sick-leave plans than was the case for plant workers. It was found that "the great Majority" of both plant and office workers were covered either by sick leave or sickness-accident insurance plans. Employer-contributed insurance benefits were generally greater among factory workers than among nonfactory employes. Workers in the South—cities surveyed there being Atlanta, Dallas, Memphis and New Orleans—were not as a rule found to be covered lo the same extent as those in other regions.

It did not include private health, pension or other insurance coverage the workers might buy for themselves. Nor did it cover such government insurance programs as social security. The study covered six workers in offices and plants employing: 50 or more persons. It was confined to the country's 17 largest urban areas and skipped the small plants and towns. It showed that in major labor markets: 1. Nine of every 10 plant and office workers were covered by life insurance policies wholly or partly employer paid. Employers paid the entire coat for about half the workers so protected. 2, Eight of every 10 workers sur- "TAMED" — The white rat . atop the graduate wouldn't gel sick even if it were to drink all the iodine in the flask at left The "tamed" iodine has been found, effective against polio, influenza and tuberculosis, according to the Long Island City, N.

A reporter told Eisenhower yesterday there has been speculation a split might develop in the Republican party in the 1956 presidential election year because of "so-called conservative members being unhappy about being hard on Communist infiltration" in the United States. Charles Von Fremd of CBS, lhe | reporter, said later he was talking | and resentment by "so-called conservative" Republicans. At the news conference, Von Soviet Press Condemns Cards Fremd asked Eisenhower whether development of a party split over .such an issue would "alfect in any way your own strong drive toward a sound middle-of-the-road policy." \o Connection The President replied he could see no connection between trying to be tou^h on communism find still being progressive. He vidi- culed the idea of anyone thinking he luiK any love in his heart for the concept of communism. In fact, Eisenhower added, normally be is accused of being too tough in his efforts to oust anyone in government guilty of subversion. He said be hoped he didn't have to defend himself on that matter. Then he proceeded to .set forth bis ideas on the kind of a program the Republican party must champion to stay in power. As he has done before, he said the party must be a progressive. ....
