Now there are more fringe improvements in the private sector than in government. Furthermore, some benefits in industry — such as employer-paid health insurance In recent years, government I - have: surpassed those enjoyed membership increased 48 per cent while employment rose 33 per cent, in private industry, excluding agriculture, union membership went up less than 2 per cent although employment climbed nearly 18 per cent. Unions of government employees have been in existence for some time, particularly in the Federal service. It is only recently that organizational activities in the public sector have been stepped up. Several factors have contributed to this trend. Employment in government has grown rapidly. It is now the third largest of the industry divisions in our state. Unions are, .. devoting special attention to;conditions of public employees public employees in order to| other than unions affiliated with counteract the lag in member by civil servants. Another factor is (he executive order at the Federal level, by legislation at the Slate level, and by policy statements and resolutions at the local level dealing with the subject. Still another factor that may have contributed to increased public employee union membership is the arrangement for payroll deduction of employee organization dues instituted in recent years by the state and by many local jurisdictions. There arc, however, many or ganizations concerned with bet tering the wages and working ship growth in private enterprise. At one time public employees the AFL-CIO. The California Slate Employees' Association and the California Teachers Association, which have a combined mem bership of around a quarter of a million, are examples. These, as well as, intrastate associations of city, county and other local government employee groups are equally concerned with the well being of their re-' spective members. ! The majority of union locals • have no women members. Fifty- five per cent of the locals consist entirely of men. Women accounted for only 19 per cent of I the total union membership in | 1962. They were in the majorityj in two industry groups, textiles: and apparel manufacturing.! Unions composed entirely of the weaker (?) sex are uncommon in California, numbering just 31 in 19G2.

"was continually snubbed and rejected in Denver." But in researching the real Molly for his play on which the movie is based, writer Richard Morris says: "Of her life in Leadville there was almost nothing and only a I vague indication that she was | rebuffed by Denver society."

Since last season alone, the three networks have disposed of such series as "Naked City," The Richard Boone Anthology, "It's a Man's World" and now "East Side-West Side." Is it any wonder that while works by important playwrights can be seen on Canadian and British television, most significant American writers avoid this nation's networks like the plague? Does it tell you anything about the stature of network entertainment when, each week we read about the constantly expanding reperatory movement across the country while video drama heads di- recetly away from the mainstream? There is a hunger for high-minded fare, but the net- workers continue to think thin. When this viewer suggested last Friday that "East Side- West Side" was sweating out its renewal contract after seeming to be certain to return in the fall, several key television figures told us they could not believe it. They noted that the series was not doing too badly in the ratings for a first-year drama show. They noted also that in the past few years, CBS-TV had gambled on and shifted around "The Nurses," a night-time soap opera, and the Dick Van Dyke Show, a situation comedy — both of which had rough freshman seasons. The implication in these ob- observations was that the widespread praise for "East Side- West Side," which no publicity can buy, would certainly guarantee its return. The fact that it is not returning seems doubly insane in view of reports that neither of its competition scries, "Sing Along With Mitch" or "Breaking Point," are positively expected back in the fall either. Next season DBS-TV is losing Jack Benny to NBC-TV, and Danny Thomas is quitting his weekly series. Still, CBS is by far the ratings leader, because of such coddled junk as "Petticoat Junction" and "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "My Favorite Martian." And to strengthen its ratings hold, CBS seems to be stretching its sure-fire bets over more air time, as for in- as women who were overheard j stance: by Sonja: "Which one is Sonja Henie?"

Come April 5, the Ed Sullivan show expands to 90 minutes under a new long-term contract. Furthermore, Carol Burnett will be on three of every four weeks next season in a new revue series. And CBS wants Lucille Ball to expand her program to an hour weekly, while also trying to get Bing Crosby to move from occasional specials to a new half-hour situation comedy. Serious drama, meanwhile, is being abandoned to the other media, the big leagues, where the managerial class is kept in its place.
