At tho other end of the age scale, union workers arc center- Ing their battles tills year on schemes for job security rather (ban higher wage rates. This wa the crucial point in the steel lu- bor pact and in the fight between tho railroads rmd their unions. Even so, In many basic Indus tries tbe number of employes has dropped wbile the units of production per worker have increased. Total employment crossed the fiO-million mark just 1.5 years ago. Since then stool production workers have declined in number by about 20 PCM- cent, although output per worker has gone up by about 35 per cent. Last year 12 per cent fewer motor vehicle workers turned out 55 per cent more cars than in 1948. In the same period, the number of railroad employes dropped 40 per cent wbile freight ton-miles per worker rose 48 per cent. The big gains in total employment have been in the service industries, and in the technical and more highly skilled jobs in the production fields. It is this accent on training and skill which thwarts many teen-age job seekers. Those who are returning to school this fall may achieve the training goals. Many of those who are dropping out of school will still have to scramble for the job opportunities open to beginners. Those whose education isn't enough to take on the on-job training that a mechanized economy demands will be hard pressed. TEMPERANCE, PLEASE!
