HOT EMBER 14, Slash in Copper, Nickel Will Follow Cut in Non-Military Use of Aluminum \ ntBTTLLB. (ARK.)" COTXlEK MEWS By MAX HALL WASH1NOTON, Nov. 14. (*)-The government'! 35 per cent cut In non-military UM of aluminum will b« followed won by cuts In copper itid nickel, and maybe next year by a. further slash In aluminum. That was the metals picture as »«n by government officials today. .Though the present arms proi Is modest compared %lth that Vorld War II, booming output Civilian goods is consuming nearly all the metals In sight, and therefore officials say even a modest arms program can't get very far without a reduction In civilian use ef metals. Copper and nickel cutback orders are expected within a couple o( weeks. First Time 'Across (he Hoard' The aluminum order Issued yesterday by the National Production Authority (NPA) effective Jan. 1, marked the first time the NPA lias cut a major metal "across the board"—meaning that the cut applies throughout the manufacturing and construction industries without regard for specific end-products. Many officials would rather begin by cutting out certain nonessential products. But (he defense production act of 1950 says that channeling of materials shall be done in such B manner so that various segments of business shall, "so far as practicable." get a fair share of the available civilian supply based on their former consumption under normal conditions. That Is why yesterday's order was "across the board." And here Is why some government officials believe that a further cut In aluminum—vital in airplane construction—may come: Agencies Interested r> Various federal agencies are anx- ft|K to have aluminum set aside «r the programs In which they are Interested. Aluminum already on order and destined to be used in the electric power Industry was exempted from yesterday's 35 per cent cut, at the urging of the Interior Department. The Defense Transport Administration Is expected to ask for an exemption for aluminum to be used In bus«e«,, trucks, and trailer*. The Agriculture Department may seek exemption for aluminum foil to be uied In wrapping margarine and other fooda. The argument runa that »uch pressure may set a pattern that will further squeeze the non-essential civilian products which can't win exemption. Government officials carefully avoid mentioning any specific products lhat may become scarcer as a result of yesterday's 35 per cent cutback. It Is strictly up to Industry what civilian products to mak«—and in what quantity — with the reduced amount* of aluminum that will b« available. But It seemed likely to people In the aluminum Industry that one of the first fields to be hit will Be bulMing materials — things like aluminum window frames ' and store fronts-because substitutes can be found more easily for these things than for most aluminum products. Aluminum Is widely used In vacuum cleaners, radios and television sets and hundreds of other Items. Industry sources had no clear picture, so far, concerning the effect of the cutback on the output of specific products. Miami Phone Company Is Indicted For Being a Gambling Accessory MIAMI, Fin., Nov. 14.

Car- negle-IlilnoU steel In past month lias Jumped participation from 18,000 to 72,000 of Its 100.000 employes; C'onaresslonal Mathemalle* Reapporllonnicnl of congressional seats for (he 1953 elections, bawd on the 1950 census figure of 150,000,000 population, involves some tricky arithmetic. Since the law now fixes the size of the House of Representatives at 435 members, tt means each congressman should represent approximately 334,000 people. Trouble is, when you divide the population of each state by 334,000, it seldom if ever comc.i out even, There's always a fraction left over. Main purpose of the reapportionment Is to work out a minimum of Injustice to every state lor its fraction. American Academy of Science reported on this injustice to the Speaker of the House back in 1928. From that report, the present system wvu worked out. The l«w says first that each slate shall have at least, one representative. That ac- counls for Ihs first 48 of the 435, and leaves 3R7 to be divided on the second round. On this first round, Delaware, Nevada and Wyoming drop'out be- causle they have less than 334,000 population. Vermont also drops out because It doesn't have enough population for' two seats. With thtse four slates out, the 387 seats are divided among 44 states. The states are now lined up ac- oordliig to calculated priority. New York having the largest population, it gets the 49th seat. California gets 50, Pennsylvania 51 and Illinois 52. New York now still h«s a greater priority than any other state, so it gels the 53rd for Us third congressman. Ohio gels 54 Texas 55 for Its third congressman. Pennsylvania gets the 58th for its third and New York gels the 59th for Ha fourth. And *> on. But en every round, some stat«« drop out. Seven states gain this year, and Bine slates lose through population snlfti, i . Seal 435 this year went to Massachusetts for its 14th congressman. If there had been 4M seats, California would hlve nlld , t for , te I 1, ",, tne « had been 437 -seats to distribute, Kentucky would have received the last one and would not have lost a seat, dropping from nine to eight.
