Phone ^4600 for a WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 1952 THREE Baltimore Transit Strike Hit Merchants Heavy Financial BALTIMORE—«P>—-"I must have stayed open from force of habit," a store owner said glumly. His retail merchandising colleagues shared his gloom—they were the big losers in the strike that kept Baltimore's buses and streetcars idle for 19 days. The consensus among retail men was that business for January was off about 30 per cent over January of last year. They say, however, that only 15 to 20 per cent of that figure is due to the strike. The rest they say. is a reflection of a nation-wide drop in sales this month as compared with January ol 1951 which was considered a scare- buying period. Theaters, almost empty the first days of the strike, made a partial recoverey. but losses figured to run fairly high. Even the Enoch Pratt Free Library suffered. The librarian thoughtfully declared a moratorium on fines for overdue books. The loss In revenue was put at $2,800. Large firms spent huge sums of money to charter special busses to brin? their employes to work. The Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Company, for example, paid out $30,000 for that purpose.

Centre St. i i PHONE 66 ——— Most industries reported attendance at work was good, regardless of whether or not transportation was furnished. A large proportion of the city's workers hitch-hiked or joined car pools to get to their jobs. One young bank employe candidly admitted she had "never had been to work on time so many days in a row in her life." The taxicab business, surprisingly, was not as rushing as had been expected. Robert Preedman, president of one cab firm, said the strike "didn't do too much for us. Because of publicity and experience in other cities, people either doubled up or stayed home." Freedman said daytime cab business was up about 10 per cent. He said there was little effect on night business. The head of a large chain of gasoline stations said gasoline sales were up. "but nothing sensational." His explanation—cars which normally would be carrying housewives around the city on shopping and visiting activities were brought down town and parked for the day. Among the real winners were' small loan companies. Most of them '. agreed they had a definite spurt of; business. Transit workers lost an' average of 1 $127.80 each and the company put its revenue losses at $1,178,000. Busses and streetcars began run- i rung again Tuesday. The APL Union | and the Baltimore Transit Company I were in agreement on terms of a | contract that would provide raises '• of 21 cents per hour over a'three 1 year period. ! Late Monday night the Maryland ; Public Service Commission granted ' the company the right to charge two j j cents for transfers for a period of; 1 120 days. The action was an emer-; i ipeasure designed to give the ! company immediate financial relief pending a review of its fare and ser- i vice structure. A request to eliminate a bargain rate—seven cent [ares for tlfe second ride when taken between the hours of 10 a. m. and 3 p. m.—was denied by the commission, Regular intra- clty transit fare is 15 cents.
