This would in effect guarantee the unemployed worker about $2 ; 600 per year, Murray said. He said the "economic system" could be sustained and still profits could be made. The union president also said current profits are so vast that the fiteel industry can afford to grant "substantial wage increases" that the "workers are entitled to." He said United States Steel Company realized a 300 per cent increase over 1045 in its net profits after taxes. The net gain "in actual earnings" of all steel workers was only 58 per cent, he added.

"My doubts about the use of estrogens in poultry," he told a House committee "arise liOM »he possibility that some may remain in the food that is consumed. "I don't think one can give estrogens to the average farmer without control of their being planti c* where they should be planted." Hueper. who said he was testifying as a private citizen and not as a government representative, appeared before a special committee set up to, investigate the use of chemicals in foods and cosmetics. Saying there is evidence that estrogens of various types can produce cancer in some strains of mice and rats, Hueper declared that beauty creams and lotions containing estrogens should carry a labeled warning about a possible cancer hazard "from long and extensive use of predisposed persons."

Hope Organizers of the British Industries Fair, which opens in London May 5, said they will be exhibiting on behalf of the Ministry of Supply a full-sized delta-shaped aircraft wing made of molded plastic. A new technique in molding plastic was devised at the government's roya! aircraft establishment. It eliminated the two biggest cost elements in plastics production—steel dies and high-pressure hydraulic machinery. "This represents a pioneer step towards all-'plastic aircraft whicn promises to be much easier to build than present-day metal aircraft and from 50 to 60 per cent cheaper," a B. I. F. statement said. The delta-wing design is adopted only for 'planes flying at the speed of sound, and under current conditions such planes have no commer of success is not dead. But, reports that State Department officials, military leaders and Allied representatives have begun a serious policy survey of what action may be taken if peace talks fail represents recognition in inner councils here that prospects of an agreement are slackening somewhat. There was no clear indication of what line might be taken if truce talks failed, but these possibilities are reported under study: 1. The United Nations could increase military pressure on Korea to try to persuade the Red command to reach an agreement. This would be costly to both sides, as both have strengthened their positions during the semi-armistice. 2. The U. N. could accept a withering-away of the war.

Juvenile authorities said they learned from Kathleen's friends that she had been an habitxial user of aspirin, mixed with soda water. They quoted her girl friends as saying "she would get higher than a kite on that stuff." They added, however, that Kathleen had not been taking the mixture before she plunged through the window. Zeferino Padilla, 20, in whose west side apartment the party was held, said Kathleen had been acting "goofy"' after drinking the beer, police said. "Then," police quoted .Padilla, "before we could move, she folded her arms, lowered her head, and plunged through the window."

Editor {must be permitted to vote .in South can people help in the fight against higher prices 1 TJ By continuing to save and urging government to save, too i 9 fjl .«) Ihe families of America are saving more now than at any time except during World War II. They're saving at an annual rate of $22 billions— twice the 1950 rate, and almost eight times the rate in 1939! And this despite today's high taxes and high prices. These savings must be kept up if we are to hold down inflationary pressures: Buying less means less demand and this helps keep prices from increasing. But that in itself will not be enough. Because government spending also affects prices, even,' individual should encourage the government to save. And while large spending is necessary now for our defense, government should make every effort to spend carcfullv and without waste. Then, too, individuals can help local, state and federal government save by not asking for any more service? at this time and insisting on economy. America's 86 million policyholders, through life insurance, are making America a ifetter place to work in and to live in. They are providing for the future of their families and themselves. Their life insurance dollars are invested all over the country. And their healthy habit of thrift is one of the nation's strongest bulwarks against inflation.
