The back-to-work calls were delayed pending acceptance by the strikers of settlements reached yesterday in the 113-day old walkout of 175,000 employes of General Motors and in the two-month long work stoppage by 100,000 General Electric employes. The C. 1. O. unions involved In two of the country's major disputes settled with the companies with identical agreements relating lo wage increases-- 18 1-2 eents an hour. An early return to work of the 275,000 workers in the G. M. and G. E. plants would mean a sharp reduction In the ranks of the idle because of labor disputes. From a near all-time hifih of more than 1,500,000 in January, the idle, now approxi- " mately 450,000 would drop to abnut 475,000. Main disputes which continued to keep idle thousands included 150,000 C. I. O. Steel Workers, mostly employed in fabricating I plants not affecled by recent scl-| tlements between the union and major steel producers; 75,000 C. I. 0. Electrical Workers at 'Westinghouse Co.; 40,000 C. I. O. workers in larm machinery plants, and about 50,000 independent C. I. 0. and A. F. L. machinists Capt.

Captsin Moore, a member of the department of Public Safety since September 8. 1919, said he will leave Beckley tomorrow w i t h his wife to return to their home in El kins. Promoted lo the rank of cap- t a i n in 1935. he commanded Company A at Fairmont and Company C at Elk ins prior to coming to Beckley. Ke entered the department as r, trooper in 1919 with his first assignment at Marlinlon, in Pacahontas county. Captain Moore this morning expressed his thanks to the people of Beckley for their aid to police and the newspapers for what he termed "splendid eo-uperalion." No successor has been named to his post yet, he stated. Captain Moore's home on Orchard Avenue will be occupied by Trooper C. C. McGraw who this week is attending a retraining school nt Jackson's Mill. McGraw, \vhosg wife has "been living with relatives at Spanishburg, will join him here upon his return. The house McGraw will occupy upon Captain Moore's departure 1 is just opposite the one in which [ t h e McGraws lived before he en- I tered the navy.
