Did you know "STRIKES" such as the recent General Motors' walkout affect your pocfcetbookln areas you are not aware of? Startling as It may be, the Federal Government aids and abets the excessive use of the strike weapon! "Here's The Issue" a publication of the Chamber of Commerce of The United States recently reported "Food stamps were distributed In large quantities to many of the 343,000 workers Involved in the General Motors Strike". One worker who paid $18 for stamps with which he could buy $162 worth of grt>c- _ eries commented, "They can't starve us out now that we are getting these food stamps, we can go on forever." The Chamber of Commerce magazine adds this revealing statement. "In the case of the General Electric strike, strikers and their families received public assistance In the amount of $5 million per week at one point in the strike!" The U.S. Chamber concludes "The growing use of food stamps to weigh the scales of favor of one side during the collective bargaining process will sooner or later force Congress to face the problem squarely. Union Advocates of various kinds will disagree vehemently but many of us are sick and tired of reading about and hearing about strikes of one kind or another, all loo prevalent in the recent months. One of these days it could be the unions will strike themselves right out of existence. Too many people, too often, are indirectly seriously affected by one kind of strike or another. One group in particular is our senior citizens, living on fixed incomes. Unions have played an important part in the growth of this great country of ours and then- is no doubt they have increased the standard of living and bettered working conditions for their members. Now they can do more by "holding the line" against inflation and (lit recession, • not only for their members but for the general public a.s well. . ' Mayor Witt Meets With Gov. Ogilvie Mayor Earl R.
