Analyze Labor Situation !n Present Month Job call-back. hi^hllKJUed the September industrial picture, nnd omylfoymept moved upward- All over the State the picture is brighter with vacation shutdowns over, while inventories in many industries are at a low level and many ftrrr.^ arc beginning to report strong- seasonal advances. In July non-agricultural employment throughout the State totaled almost 694,009. In August there was little change in the employment level, but first returns for September showed a moderate gain. "Weekly working hours have also gained with many plants ra-uming the 40 hour schedule. In some 70,700, or 21 per cent of all factory workers, were on short time. By mid-Septe.-rber only 23,400, or eight per cent, were working less than full time. Textiles showed further strength during the month as many plants rehired previously laid off workers. Some textile plants increased hours and one large firm reported it is contemplating re-opening the third shift. Woolens registered the greatest gain with the major plants reporting substantial orders on hand. In the cotton and rayon segment of the industry, the firmness reported in August continued in September. Manv firms producing cotton have reported that inventories have sunk to a very low level and further hiring will be necessary. The start of the school term for many of the State's youth brought a spurt in fall buying .and both retail and \vholesaln trade firms registered seasonal gains. Colleges reojcned toward the end of the month removing several thousand job seekers from the labor market. Trade employment dipped in August in line with the mid-summer slack, but gains were widespread in September. Construction edged off further during the month. In August it showed the fir.rt drop of the season, earlier than usual this year. Last year the drop occurred in Septenjber. Employment in the industry is running about 3,000 below last year's level. Resorts indicate that public work is holding up well but private, particularly residential, has dropped. The number of workers involved in labor disputes dropped in September. About 2,300 in mid-September compared with 2.500 in the middle of August. Of the ten disputes in progress in September. six were in manufacturing firms and involved more than 2,200 workers. "Unemployment dropped again for the Second consecutive month. Job seekers otaled 86,500 in Sefc- tenr.'ber as compared with 98,900 in August. The down-trend appears to have set in after the steady rise which culminated in the July peak of 106J2CO. High school students -who have b»3n looking for summer work were o-it of the labor market by mid-September, but college students were still in as most of them do not return to school until late 1 September. There were 26.400 still" underemployed which is a big drop from June. They have jobs, but are working less than 40 hours a week.

(International) N THE AIR TODAY] Labor Leaders Side WithA&PlnU.S Trust Complaint A deluKe of telegrams from the nation's labor leaders and thousands of messages from consumers, ill voicing opposition to the antirust suit against A & P Food Stores, have flooded the company's New York offices, an official of he food chain said today. Union heads representing butchers, meat cutters, clerks, warehousemen and truck drivers, began sending wires as soon as news of the :uit calling for company dissolution '•cached the press. At the same time, thousands of consumers have swamped A & P headquarters with ohone calls, telegrams and letters praising the company's operations ind criticizing the anti-trust charges. The labor chiefs brand the stilt I in attack against organized labor and a threat to current living stan- 'lards. All oppose the action of the anti-trust lawyers and pledge sup- oort of A & P'a plan to defend its low-price retail policy. Reflecting the sentiments of thour ^ands of organized workers in food and allied industries, the messages •stress A & P's high wage scales ind excellent working conditions. Earl W. Jimerson, president of 'he Amalgamated Meat Cutters & Butcher Workmen, an A. F. of L. affiliate, in regretting "the action tuken by Attorney General Howard McGrath," said his union was ready "to aid your company in any way we can."

ITS THE "NEXT LOOK" IJV CARS All over America, all eyes are on this dramatically different 1950 Studebaker. It's the most sensational advance in car styling since Studebaker introduced the "new look" in cars three years ago. This 1950 Studebaker is long, low, luxurious—and it's trim, sleek and flight-streamed—no bulging excess bulk to squander gasoline. Stop in and get a close-up eyeful of this breath-taking new Studebaker. It's the "next look" in cars. Erickson Motors 129 RUBBER AVE. .'UDEBAKER'S REALLY ROL! CARL E. ERICKSON, Prop. TEL. 4838 STUDEBAKER LEADS AGAIN WITH THE 'NEXT LOOK IN CARS! Question- Where's YOUR Efectricity Mode? Hydroelectric Plants? Steam Power Plants? Both? Put your ^f next to "Both." About 88 per cent of the electric power generated by us in 1948 was produced in our Devon and Montville steam power plants, while the remaining 12 per cent was generated in our seven hydroelectric stations. There's a good reason for this one-sided comparison. You see, Connecticut's fivers are unpredictable. Although they carry plenty of water in the spring, they cannot be depended on for adequate year-round water flow. Since in almost every case the normal river flow is small, most of pur hydroelectric stations are also small. Largest is Stevenson, on the Housatonic River, where four generators can produce a peak output of 27,000 kilpwatts, when sufficient water is available — about three months of the year. Our Devon and Montville steam power plants, on the other hand, can produce a combined peak output of 266,000 kilowatts, more than four times as much as all our hydroelectric stations together. Even more important, their production can be continuous, day in, day out, during any period of the year, because instead of relying on water as a source of power, they burn coal which we are able to storel in' huge piles near the plants. Although we must rely principally on our steam power plants, both hydroelectric and steam power facilities are important partners in the constant job of meeting your growing demands for electricity.
