Industry ^Jilo Assembly Line, Qpal Mines And Other iSelds Feel Impact at NlSv YORK (X) — Automation is moving in on that symbol of American ^manpower efficiency — t 1 automobile assembly line. Ot&r huge machines that can dig |ftd load six to eight tons of coal«# minute are helping to revive ^the once ailing coal industry &t they are cutting working crew* in half. Makers of electrical equipment and ffircraft are eyeing automated macffines like those Chrysler has totalled in its semiautomatic engine assembly line in Detroit. ^ Much Argument Labor, management and politicians^ argue whether automation will mean the loss of present jobs or, instead, creation of more jobs through a higher standard of living. £And while they argue new marvels of automatic and semiautomatic machines keep 'coming. Thti Cross Co. of Detroit which installed the new machines on the Chrysler line estimates they save up ta : 25 per cent in assembly costs of engines. There are 150 workmen on tfre quarter-mile long line now, turning out 150 .V-8 engines an hour* On tbe old assembly lines it took' £ 200 men to turn out that Tivo Cars Collide At Pinto Bridge Two cars collided at the Pinto Bridge this morning as the day shift was on its way to Allegany Ballistics Laboratory, State Police reported. An auto operated by Clem Ritchie Armstrong, 17, of Triple Lakes, crossing the bridge toward Maryland, skidded into the front of the car waiting to go over the one*way span. The latter car was operated by Phone Firm And CIO Open Commission Continues Its Studies On Education Plan West Virginia Contract To Expire At Midnight Nov. 2 RICHMOND, Va., W — No end is yet in sight for the task confronting the Gray Commission on Public Education, the legislative study group appointed by Gov.

The new Chrysler engine line has 280 Operating stations — and at many stands there's a machine instead of a man. Cylinder blocks are fed into one end of the line by a machine, right cylinder heads at another point, left cylinder heads at a third. As these castings move along automatically, one en- ginefpart after another is added At the end of the line completely assembled .engines are removed for installation in new cars. :B Make Machine" Blocks , Th| Ford MotoV Co.'s plant at Cleveland has a 500-foot automated production line for making engine blocks. .

[)emos Change Stand On Road ^robe Salary BALTIMORE (/B—Democrats on le Legislative Council have recon- idered a previous "ultimatum" rid decided not to give up 'their ouncil salaries to finance a probe £ the State Roads Commission. As : a result, a $2,940 "kitty" they ad saved for the investigation will e divided among the 14 Demo- rats. Six Republicans on the Coun- il were never involved in the Ian. At a stormy meeting in Cumber- and last Aug. 10, the Democrats owed they would pay for the in- estigation if Republican Gov. Mc- veldin failed to put up the neces- ary money. The governor did refuse, and the ouncil soon launched a small- cale probe of contracts awarded wo real estate firms for the pur- hase of rights-of-way for the Bal- imore Harbor Tunnel. The council was informed yes- jrday that $1,533 in expenses for •ml inquiry will be paid out of ic council's regular budget funds. The lawmakers decided they hould get their withheld pay for wo major reasons: 1. The council's regular budget robably can" absorb the tunnel robe. If not, the 1956 Legislature an pass a "deficiency appropria- men to seven or eight. Th|nks in part to .the steady trends toward mechanization in recent years which has held down the once fast-rising price ' of coal, the coa! industry is pulling out of a bad slump. In 1948 nearly 600 million tons of bituminous coal was/mined, but this dropped to less than 400 million last year. The revival this. year is putting output about 21 per cent above last year. One of the big factors this year has been the growing demand of Europe for American coal, to keep its steel mills going at a record pace L. C. Campbell, president of the National Coal Assn., hails production strides attending mechanize tion in the past 20 years and adds, "and the end is not in sight."

S. Reports WASHINGTON W) — A strong demand for fresh apples in 1956 is forecast by the Department of here for a contract to replace the present pact which expires al midnight Nov. 9. Both company and union officials pointed out that the talks are in their preliminary stages. 0. L. Davis of Charleston, West Virginia director for the communications Workers, said today that a call had been put out to all of the state's nine locals for a strike vote to be taken. He explained, however, that this was required if it became necessary to call a strike. "It's a little premature to be talking strike," he said, "We are still negotiating and the negotia- ions haven't bogged down." Davis said results of the voting would not be made available until all locals had reported. Fielding Woods, assistant vice president in charge of personnel and head of the C. and P. bar- jaining .team, said the company las made wage offers proposing ncreases ranging from $1.50 to $3.50 a week for the 4,500 C. and P. workers .in Ihe state. Davis said the union is asking increases o£ $4 to $6 a week. Garrett County Case Heard Here A jury in Circuit Court today found in favor of the defendant in a civil suit resulting from dispute over Ihe sale of two heifers in Garelt County. The suit was removed !rom Oakland for trial here. Wayne Friend brought suit against Leah Beitzel, administrat- rix of the estate of Jacob Beitzel, claiming the' sale of the two heifers was not authorized by him. The heifers were sold at the Farmers Stockyard at Accident in 1951 for $298.40. . ...' ' " Jack Savage former_ operator of the stockyard testified in the case and told of sending-a check to Friend for the two. heifers. The heifers had been on the Beitzel •arm. the Supreme Court's anti-scgrega- —: tion decree. |_, •• ft* At the conclusion of a six-hour _| I'flUglt F 11*111 closed door session here yesterday State Sen. Garland Gray of Waverly, commission chairman, disclosed, still another meeting of the commission's executive committee has .been scheduled for Nov. 10. Without' direct affirmation, he indicated the full commission would also get together sometime after the executive session. The newly scheduled executive committee meeting was the only definite announcement given by Gray to newsmen with the exception of his admitting the commission yesterday had discussed a proposal sunmitted by Reps. Tuck and Abbitt, Virginia Democrats, to submit the integration question to public referendum. Just how far the discussion went and what if any conclusions were reached, Gray declined to say. Oth. : Earnings Up WASHINGTON UfV-Fewer people are riding-the street cars and buses here these days but the transit company is making more money. In September, the first full month of service after a 52-day strike of its operators, Capital Transit Co. made 115 per cent more money than in September, 1954, although there was a 15 per cent drop in passengers. According to a report filed with the Public "Utilities Commission, the company cut expenses by operating with 420 fewer employes arid effecting other economies. The labor cutback accounted for 75 per cent of the operating economies. The workers on a 10-cent-an-hour rlier indicated a wage hike in the strike. Desegregation Compliance Urged By Virginia Group Agriculture. Noting that Virginia and somej other apple states were ,hurt byj spring freezes this year, the department said production next year is expected to be more in line with averages. But the 1956 crop, with average weather, will be about the same as this year's production, the department predicted. ' . The smaller crop this year in Virginia and some other states, the report said, was offset by larger crops in New England and the Pacific Coast states. .. , Demand for apples for processing may be better next year than this year, the department said. Carry-over stocks of processed apples next summer should be much lower than this year, the report added. "This would be favorable to stronger demands for apples for processing, supplies of which may be larger in 1556, especially in the Appalachian area," the department said. RICHMOND, Va., Iff) — The Virginia Council on Human Relations has called for a school adjustment program for Virginia in "compliance with the letter and spirit" 1 of the Supreme Court's desegregation decree. ; A stale-wide group organized last July, the Council membership consists of professional, business and industrial participants representing both' races and Ihe three major religious faiths.

' In a list of recommendations the Council urged Gov..
