Employment Improves In December THE NEW OFFERS TOD THE FINEST IN RYE AND PUMPERNICKEL 0 DEIJCIOUS PASTRIES • FANCY ROIXS • CAKES FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS 122 School Street Dial 3985 Union City Unemployment D.hiiougfiout ithe State edged down -further in December but the decline was less than seasonal and less than u/nial- ly expected at this time of the year. In mid-December job-seekers numbered 59,600, just 1,700 below the November level of 61,300. Unemployment has been dropping .since last July When the eleven- year peak of 105,200 was reached but the reductions each month have been smaller and smaller. Still many regard the trend as favorable, since last year the number out of work was rising steadily despite the OhrLstmas rush. Employment in the State rose in December for the fourth consecutive month and also at a' much reduced rate. Seasonal factors brought mixed trends. Some industries fhowed strength while others declined but over-all there was a net gain in December. Department and other retail stores have added hundreds of woikers to 'help with the rush. This year trade activity was a little- slow in starting a.s many shoppers delayed their holiday buying. But, by the end of November, and the first part of December, the tempo increased and preliminary estimates point to near recoi'd sales volume. In manufacturing, producers of toys, sporting goods costume jewelry, novelties, plastic products, and other items for the holiday trade report that they have already completed most of their seasonal orders. Some layoffs have already occurred and others are n the offing. Employment in firms affected by the steel stoppage moved up again in December.. Steel supplies arc adequate ancl demand is strong. In a few industries reports indicate that heavy inventories are nbt being. toui^ up- now. There's been a gradual shift in policy in some firms. In this period with the supply of labor and materials adequate, there's no rush to build up big inventories. Textile employment dipped in December for the first time in five months. Woolens' and worsteds were generally steady although by area wide fluctuations occurred. The trends in cotton and rayon textiles were mixed, but some reductions were reported. Average weekly earnings paid to factory production workers reached $55.78 for the mid-week cf November. Earnings tiave been rising steadily since the summer low of $51.72 paid in June. The rise is due almost entirely to an increase in the number of hours worked per week. The average workweek amounted to 40.4 hours in November compared to 37.8 in June. .

And right now that lack it a threat to every child (your* included) unless we get together to give our schools the Constant help they need from all of us. Today, throughout America, many public schools are overcrowded, under-staffed and under-equipped .. . for our recent high birth rate means that a million additional children will be ready for school each year during the next 7 years. And as fhesB children progress, they push Ac overcrowding right through to the highest grades. || If this happens here, it affects everybody in our community. For when the standard of education is lowered, other standards of prosperity take a downward trend. We need mar schools and our schools need us. If you want to help, offer yeur services to your local group working in behalf of better schools.
