The Hallmark Hall of Fame's live repeat 'the show was done previously in October. 1957 1 of Mare Connelly's 1930 play was a stunning accomplishment for tele-] vision, an exercise replete with humor, taste and inventiveness abandoning the matter without ever really getting its teeth into it. I do not mean to dispute the play's theology. What I am trying to point up is that "Green Pastures" muddles its own material. It is useless to say that "Green Pastures" is a naive work as explanation tor its lack of incisiveness, because it is not Unemployment Ominous Feature Of '58 Recovery By EDWARD COWAN U n ited Pre» International WASHINGTON — Although production is high and income has been breaking records from month to month, unemployment is still well above the •"normal" mark. This is a curious and possibly ominous feature of the recovery from the 1957-58 business recession.

A close look at the figures shows that joblessness is concentrated in manufacturing. It is precisely in this sector of the econ-j cmy that labor's productivity has improved most. Take automobiles, for example Federal Reserve Board reports show that December production was down four per cent from December. 1956. while employment was off by 20 per cent.

Why has unemployment failed a record annual r:itc of . $244,500. to improve as rapidly as other aspects of the economic situation?

There is a sort of half-hearted attempt to superimpose two problems on its innards: One, the difficulty of communication between God and man: the other, the struggle between good and evil in man. But "Green Pastures" never really comes to grips with either of these issues dramatically. The first conflict — the difficulty of communication — it a film produced for the United Nations.

We know this because Standard's scientists are already developing gasolines of the future. To test them, we use experimental engines installed in current model cars. The engines are obtained from auto makers and modified in our laboratories to match engine design forecasts. These future fuels are given the toughest possible workout — on the road, as well as on this "indoor highway." Here we can create almost any kind of weather or driving situation at the touch of a button. Gasolines are tested at varying speeds and engine" loads to simulate mountains, traffic, freeways . .. under climatic conditions ranging from 120° desert heat to 40° below zero cold. Your car of the future may never experience such punishing conditions. But if it does, we'll be ready with gasolines that will deliver all the power and performance built into its engine. Research that leads to new and improved gasolines is one of the ways the people at Standard ore planning ahead to serv* you better. T C&TCS. CP?
