fr- tiAVGATVCK NEWfi_ (CO1VN.) , I.JMft Waterbury Three Month US Time Corp. Strike Apparently Is Over The three-month-old strike at the U. S. Time Corp., in Middlebury apparently Is over, although there still is some disagreement on two Issues. " These points require the union to drop any intended litigation against the company, and permit the company to rehire the workers as it sees fit. One hundred former strikers returned to work yesterday morning and were sent home at noon, and the union indicated that approximately 125 strikers again would report this morning, although the company has made it clear that there will not be jobs for the majority of them pending revision of production schedules. T^h e company last night announced that 28 openings in the firm's primary department would be filled when the plant opened this morning, with the 28 employes selected from the classifications af- efcted on a seniority basis. As to the company's point concerning withdrawal of pending grievances and court action, Miss Laura McHale, business agent for the union, said the point has been rejected because "the union mem- hers hav<- no lcfja.1 or moral right *o enter into a conspiracy with the :ompnny to defraud any former or present employes ol wages or oth- jr remedy due them." Employes returning to work will be working without a contract and with a 21-cunts-an-hour wage cut siill in effect. The company has offered a three-cent increase in the wage rates .four paid holidays and a three per cent shift bonus.

PRIZES KTOS $100,000 OKSKJV The Naugatuck Fuel Co. 87 CHURCH STREET Tel. 5236 The Barn Sure, that's a bit of on exaggeration. Little boys can still say "profits" without worrying about a whack on the behind. But there are too many people who think of profits as being just this side of honest. It's kind of peculiar when you think about it, because if there were no such thing as profits we'd all be doing without lots of the necessities of life we've gotten used to ... that high standard of living we talk so much about. When there are no profits, there's no inducement for men and women to become stockholders. That means no expansion, and fewer jobs. Ever notice that when industry has a profitable year, most of us do pretty well? And that when industry fails to moke a profit things are rough ail over? Maybe profits aren't so bad after all. And they aren't as high as many people think. Last year in the Naugatuck Valley, profits amounted to only four cents out of every sales dollar. No one can honestly call that cxorb: tant.
