The. switchmen— members of the AFIj's 'switchmen's Union of North (America— and ten western railroads came to - agreement at the White House last night ending a 17-month dispute over • wages and hours, 23-C'ertl Pay Increase They settled 011 a 23-cent hourly pay increase effective October 1 That was In place of the 31 cents demanded by the union in asking for 48 hours pay for a 40-hour work week. A three-year pledge against any furjher wage or other demands was union. In exchange switchmen will get given by for that, the the « penny-an-hour wage hike for every point rise in the government's cost-of-living index beyond an Index level of 174. It wis 172.5 on July 15. •-"" Effect on Rail Dispute Sj|The .switchmen's agreement ma? affect the still pending railroad dispute in either of these ways: 1. After October 1, the switchmen on the ten railroads under contract with the switchmen's union will be receiving 23 cents more an hour than switchmen who are members of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and employed on othe; railroads. This will have a ten cjency to pressure the BRT and the Order o( Railway Conductors to settle as soon as possible. 2. Because the rival switchmen's union has signed up, the trainmen and conductors will be under pressure to get a better settlement, and that may prolong their dispute and lengthen the period of government operation of the roads. 8 Missco Reservists To Get Physical Exams The Army dipped into its reserve again yesterday and came up with eight Mississippi County men who are to report to Hot Springs Wednesday for physical examinations.
