GREATER TRUCK SAFETY SOUGHT Mason City Union in Request That 60-Hour Week Be Extended The interstate commerce commission at a truck safety hearing to be held in Omaha March 17 will have before it a vigorously worded recommendation by Arthur McCoid, business agent of the Mason City general drivers union, that private carriers be required to hold to reasonable working hours as a matter of safety. "Under the present wording of the motor earner act of 1935" sfated Mr. McCoid in a communication to the Iowa State Safety council, "there is no limitation of hours on the private carriers. The bad feature of this act insofar as safety is concerned is that the private carrier is still running its drivers 70, 80 and 100 hours a week. "As far as the drivers interests are concerned those private earners that we have under contract are only operating 60 hours a week, but there is a great number of operators in direct competition with both common and contract carriers that we do not have under contract that are not in the immediate jurisdiction of any group of organized labor and which \VE cannot control hv means of contract. "If these private operators were to oe forced under the 60 hour law, it would mean the re-employment of a large group of men, it would mean the evening up of competition and be an added ^actor in the interest of safety " " Because drowsy truck drivers have been found by safety authorities to be one of the most important factors in traffic fatalities, the recommendation from the Mason City drivers organization has been passed along to the director of the Omaha conference with a request that it be given serious study.
