Pecking Ladies* Hose x Wood Lake, Nebr., (If)--Wood Lake's friendly prairie chicken known affectionately as Old Pete Thursday by formal proclamation became a privileged character-privileged even to start runners in ladies's stockings. Mayor James I. Hanna issued the proclamation in defense of the waddling bird after 2 ladies protested Old Pete had ruined their good hose by pecking at their legs on downtown streets. "The town will not be responsible for any damage to ladies' hose," declared Mayor Hanna. Pete, ignorant of the scarcity of ladies stockings, sharpened his beak on the hose because the ladies paid no attention to him, according to the bird's supporters.

Davis' promise "to dp something- for the foremen of America"-- promise he made several months ago to striking supervisory employes of the Wright Aeronautical corporation, Paterson. N. J. The panel findings were regarded as far-reaching consequence to American industry and partially circumventing the policy of the national . labor relations board which refuses to order employers to recognize or bargain -with .foremen's unions. Employers contended that the establishment of grievance procedure was tantamount te recognition of foremen's unions, but the WLB panel said these fears were "unfounded." ; The report said that the grievance procedure should include the right to appeal the immediate superior's decision to higher management. Regularly designated time to hear grievances, decision within a week, and communication of decisions to the complainant in writing. The panel refused to order" an. appeal to a referee or arbitration as the terminal point in the procedure because "higher management should not be required against its will to pass over to outsiders questions of disciplining foremen, or their selection, advancement, retention, or transfer."
