Comics Classified Member Associated Press The Netcspaper For The' Home MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1952 Second Section 200 fob Opportunities Predicted At Amcelle Will Be Available When Acetate Flake If am Gels In Production^ Dyehouse Closing Letter Revealed More than 200 job opportunities will become available at the Amcelle plant of the Celanese Corporation of America when full production of cellulose acetate flake and yarn is resumed. This was revealed today when Mayor Thomas S. Post released an exchange of letters between the city and Amcelle plant management! concerning the closing of the dyehouse there this spring. j The city on January 25 had requested Celanese to review its decision to close the dyehouse after a meeting with representatives of Local 1874, Textile Workers Union of America, CIO. The company said approximately j 400 would be affected by the dyehouse closing but the union claimed the figure to be nearer 500. The reply from Amcelle was received last Tuesday and signed by Harrison C. Givens, Jr., plant manager. Celanese Letter The letter frcm Celanese follows: "As suggested In your letter of January 25, 1952, we communicated to Mr. Blancke (Harold Blancke, president of the Celanese Corporation ot America) your request (and that of the City Council) that the company reconsider its decision to close the Amcelle dyehouse. "A sincere endeavor has been made to inform our employes, as well as the people of Cumberland, that the Company's decision in this matter Is not simply that of closing the Amcelle dyehouse. Rather, it is a change of business policy. The discontinuance of the Amcelle dye- house is only one of the effects of that policy. A parallel result will be the disposal of a complete plant located In another state. No Hidden Motives "There are no sinister or hidden motives behind this change in policy, as some critics have suggested. It is simply a change in operations which all successful business enterprises must make from time to time, in order to stay in a healthy condition. "The reasons for the change have been explained in letters and advertisements, so that our employes and neighbors would understand the action taken. To repeat, making yarn is the company's major activity. Anything which strengthens this activity will bring the greatest benefit to the greatest number of our employes. The time has come when we must stop making fabric in competition with our yarn customers. The reduction in fabric 'production automatically reduces the need for dyeing facilities. It is no longer practicable to maintain two dye- houses in operation. "Your letter states that the officers of Local 1874, T.W.U.A., have offered 'to negotiate the matter of wages and work loads so as to place the Amcelle dyehouse on a competitive basis.' We are always willing to meet with the officers of the union at any time to dlscu-ss wages, hours and working conditions. „ as provided in our contract. However, | in all fairness, it should be stated that any such dis.cussion would not alter the decision in the present case. Firemen Ask For Tally On Pension Fund 200 Jobs To Be Available "You may be interested to know that, as of today, we can predict more than 200 job opportunities will become available at Amcelle when full production of cellulose acetate flake and yarn is resumed Some djvhouse employes have requested transfer to these new jobs as they become available Several have already been placed "Mr. Blancke has indicated that the company will give serious consideration to the possible use of the dyehouse for other productive purposes. This provides for a possible long-term program, but we regret that it will offer no assistance In the present situation. "We appreciate the Interest 'expressed in your letter and hope that our reply will help to clarify the situation." x x x x x x The letters were released without additional comment by Mayor Post. City's Letter The city's letter to Celanese follows: "The public announcement of your company to discontinue permanently the dyeing and finishing of fabrics at Amcelle and the consequent displacement of over 400 employes from their jobs, has been received with great regret and concern by the City, Council. "This city has been proud of the part its citizens have played in the growth and success of your company. This is the parent plant. It has been the site of experimental work which has led Jo the establishment of other plants and many of our people have assumed important posts In these new plants. Cumberland and Celanese have meant much to each other. "The City Council recognizes that n successful business must make changes from time to time in its operation. We realize that the location or discontinuance or a plant or a department is a matter solely in the discretion of the man- Claim Lack In Amount Due For Credit; Order For Pay Boost Loses Three city firemen who claim their state pension plan tally sheets show less money than they have paid took their case before the Mayor and Council today. In a session which at times waxed hot and once caused Mayor Thomas S. Post to clamp down on "Implications" being made, the firemen asked where the money had gone. The three, Captain Vincent H. Wegman, Lt. Harry Davidson and Chauffeur Virgil McClure, said they had .paid into the old pension fund a sum representing the time they spent in the armed services. This later was returned as a "bonus," the three claim, but not from the pension fund. Since firemen were admitted to the state pension system, the tally sheets of money paid in lack these "bonus" amounts, they said. Auditor Explains Setup City Auditor Arthur B. Gibson explained the pension setup, funds involved and steps necessary to transfer to the state system. City Attorney W. Earle Cobey was asked to prepare an opinion. Once during the discussion, Playford Aldridge, president of Local 1874, TWTJA (CIO), said the firemen could take the matter to the Veterans' Employments Rights Committee in Washington. During the course of other remarks by Aldridge, Mayor Thomas S. Post took "exception." The Mayor said it had been "intimated Gibson is getting the money," and added he "didn'ti C o r , r iiHot ss fv,ii c ,,,c- BLOOD DONOR SCENE—The scene above will be repeated several hundred times February 25 and 26 at the home of Cumberland Aerie 245, F.

Va. — Sixty candidates have filed for the various Mineral county posts in the May 13 primary. The filing deadline was midnight Saturday. The list of like It." Aldridge said if his remarks intimated this he "apologized to Mr. 3ibson." "Mr. Gibson's reputation s beyond reproach," he asserted. A move to increase the salary of James F. Twigg, clerk-stenographer n the Water Department, died for ack of a second. Water Commissioner George H. Tederick wanted to hike Twigg's salary $18 a month for extra duties imposed upon him by the death of Theodore George. No second came and Tederick asked why. Mrs. Lucile W. Roeder, commissioner of streets and public property, said the job had been considered for classification under another department and that if the raise is granted, Twigg will be paid more than another employe in a more responsible position. She did not name the other employe. Referred to Cobey was the request for damages of George Zegles, RD 3 Valley Road, who claimed $175 damages to his car in an accident on Columbia Street. He was represented by Attorney Thomas B. Finan. Tederick Asks Safeguards The council tabled the request of Richard E. Fahey and Stanley F.

They need only two more "ayes" to reverse the upper chamber's action last Friday, when the measure's backers mustered 16 votes, two less than the three-fifths majority required to override a veto. On the other side, eight Republicans and five Democrats joined forces to uphold the Republican Governor. The House voted, 96 to 23, to kill the veto Thursday. If the Senate follows suit, teachers would receive the raise beginning next September. Immediately after the result of the Senate balloting was announced. Majority Leader Louis L. Goldstein, Democrat, of Calvert county, who voted to override, said he would bring up the question again when the General Assembly reconvenes tonight. Reconsideration Permitted This is permitted under a Senate rule, which provides~for reconsideration df a vote within two legislative days after the tally is taken. Sunday is not considered a legislative day. Senator Goldstein told reporters he h'ad been confident, up to an hour before the voting, that he had the necessary votes. He added, however, that three Republicans who had promised to override switched at the last minute. He identified the three as Senators Johri R. Pitcher, Prince Georges county; Paul Bailey, St. Mary's county, and Neil C. Fraley, Garrett county. Others who supported the veto included Senators Dewitt S. Hyde, Montgomery county; James Monroe, Charles county, and'David K. McLaughlin, Washington county, all Republicans. Senator Fletcher said he was against the bill because it would increase taxes by raising the corporation levy to pay lor the estimated $3.5 million cost involved. To Introduce Bill "We have to stop this taxation spiral somewhere," he asserted. The senator added he plans to introduce a teacher pay bill with no tax increase provision. Senator Kimble, (R.-Allegany), has also said he favors reconsideration of the vnte in which the Senate failed to override the governor's veto. Delegate Horace P. Whitworth, Jr., said this morning prior to leaving for Annapolis that he will introduce legislation tonight calling for a compromise plan of giving teachers a salary increase. Whitworth said his certain limit. Since the analyzer docs not show whether the vehicle Is exceeding that limit by one mile an hour or 50 miles an hour, the Chicago Motor Club has posed the question of its legality in making arrests. The test case involves a major point in that Illinois law requires that tickets given motorists state the exact speed the alleged violator is charged with, something that cannot be done with the analyzer. In addition, the Illinois speed law is not a flat maximum but a "reasonable and proper" law which gives the motorist a certain amount of leeway depending upon traffic and other conditions. The Chicago club is planning to carry the current case to the State Supreme Court, if necessary. Following an education period here, Flynn said, speeders will be arrested through use of the elcctro- matic speed device. "Black and white" evidence willj Local Speed Machine Not Illinois Type The outcome of a test case concerning speed-checking devices in Illinois will have no bearing on Cumberland police who are using a differnt type of machine to curb speeders. Chief R. Emmett Flynn explained today that the apparatus in operation here registers the specific speed of a motor vehicle. The Illinois case involves a "speed analyzer" which does not measure the exact speed of a vehicle, but simply flashes an amber light when the car or truck is going over a proposal would grant $300-a-year increase for teachers making $3,600 or under and would give $100-a-year to those teachers making over $3,600 per year. Police Probe Burglary And Other Thefts Police are investigating two thefts •which netted culprits $123 in cash and articles valued at $110 yesterday. Mrs. Irma Sittig, owner of thej G. and W. Restaurant at 43 North! Liberty Street, notified authorities the money was taken from a hiding place in a refrigerator between 11 a. m. yesterday and 7 a. m. today. Police said no doors or windows in the business establishment were found open and damaged. A suspect was taken into custody this morning for interrogation. Regional Game Warden Joseph A. Minke, 106 McKinley Avenue, reported a .22 caliber repeating rifle and a camera, valued at $45 and $65 respectively, were taken from his automobile last night. Minke said the theft occurred while he was bowling at the SS. Peter and Paul alleys. He had parked the car on a lot at the rear of the parish hall. Investigation disclosed a window had been broken to get into the machine. A leather portfolio, flashlight and other articles were not disturbed. Saturday night, a tire and wheel were taken from the 1950 Chevrolet sedan of John J. Boch, 518 Marshall Street, while he attended services in SS. Peter and Paul Church. He discovered the theft after trying to move the machine. The car had been jacked up and bricks were used to keep it on normal level after the wheel was removed. Call Issued For 300 Blood Donors In City Red Cross Needs That Many To Reach Quota February 25-26 Three hundred blood donors are needed for the second visit of the mobile blood bank February 25 and 26, according to Mrs. W. Lee Witherup, executive secretary of Allegany County Chapter, American Red Cross. On Monday, February 25 the Red Cross will require 100 donors In order to fill the quota for that day and on Tuesday, February 26 an additional 200 donors are needed. Mrs. Witherup said the number ot City To Seek Revenue Bond Industry Aid Legislature Will Be Asked For Authority; Could Erect Buildings The city will request the county delegation to introduce legislation at Annapolis enabling it to issue revenue bonds for industrial building purposes. Commissioner, of Police and Fire John J. Long asked Mayor Thomas S. Post to make the necessary contact and the Mayor agreed. By the system, which Long said has proved successful in Elizabethtown, Tenn., suitable sites could be constructed to house new industry. Bonds would be retired through rent money paid the Mayor and Council. Commissioner William H. Buchholtz seconded the motion. Francis A. Kenney, manager of the Maryland Employment Security Office here and a leader in local industrial development activities, commended . the council for its unanimous agreement in seeking a revenue bond act. Kenney said the people of Frostburg had had considerable difficulty in a campaign to raise private capital for expansion of the Berkowitz plant, and are leaning more to public financing ideas. He said the revenue bond plan had been called to the attention of the General Assembly previously but had not gone very far He added, "We should work hard at it this time." Long suggested the move to the council before and more recently to the Cumberland and Allegany County Industrial Promotion Company. ,.. The council authorized checks issued to city employes Friday, for the first two weeks of February. William E. Vogle, Vogue Dairy Bar, 216- Decatur Street, was authorized a refund of $14.74 for overpayment of taxes. The city attorney, W. Earla Cobey, was given power to act in renewing the garbage collection contract of John Riley and Sons', after Dr. Winter R. Frantz, city and county health officer, said terms arc agreeable and work satisfactory. Water consumption for the week ending Sunday was 88,520,000 gal- ions as compared to 89.740,000 a year ago. The daily average was 12,645,000.

It was explained that the staff of the regional blood bank gives complete tests to the donors and if a person has a slight cold they are turned down until the following month, Several of the prospective donors last month learned through the tests which were made that they had blood deficiencies.

Senator Goldstein said he is drafting a bill to repeal thc state real estate tax. The measure is similar to one he introduced last year. He pointed out, however, that the tax could not be entirely repealed j for at least 15 years, because it would take that long to pay oH all state bond issues dependent on the real estate tax returns. His proposal would be subject to approval of a constitutional amendment by State voters. Delegate Albert R. Ha-sscll, Republican of Prince George county, revealed his delegation had been asked by the county commissioners to sponsor legislation to permit the county heads to set up an insurance fund for county buildings. He said he had been told this would eliminate the necessity for paying pre- minus to private insurance firms! and save the county about $50,000 a erans organizations and members of Cumberland Lodge 63, B. P. O. Elks, to fill their quotas. These organizations have been taking part in the program of their national groups. The blood bank will be at the Eagles Home from noon to 6 p. m. February 25 and 26, and area residents can register this week and next in order to assure enough donors on hand to meet the quota. Blood donated by residents of Allegany county is used to stock the blood banks of county hospitals and some Is turned over to the armed forces for use in Korea. Court House To Be Closed Tomorrow Introduction Questioned Mr. that Tornon ' ow Draft Boards Here List Only Two Objectors Only two Selective Service eligl- bles are listed with Cumberland draft boards as conscientious objectors, according to P. Emmett Fahey, clerk co-ordinator. At one time, Fahey said, 12 registrants voiced their objections to serve in the armed forces. Some were reclassiflcd and others went over the age limit. The draft official also stated today that regulations will soon ba announced pertaining to conscientious objectors who will perform 24 consecutive months of work contributing to" the"fiationar~welfarer health, safety or interest in lieu of induction. Under proposed regulations, a registrant who is R conscientious objector opposed to military service of any kind would be encouraged to submit to his local board three types of civilian work which he is qualified and willing to perform. If the registrant failed to submit this list, or if the local board found that none of the typos of work .submitted met specified requirements, it would submit to the registrant three approved typc.s of civilian work, of which the registrant would select one. If thc local board and thc registrant were unable to agree on the type of civilian work, the state director would use his offices in an effort to reach an agreement. But if this was unsuccessful the loe.al board, subject, to thc approval of the national director, would order the registrant to report for work as it determines.
