It gives such a complete picture of home town life, *nd they are very pleased to keep in touch -with the local doings. They read about friends or acquaintances in the news. So- the home newspaper seems like a combination of many letters from home.

"When people move away from the home town to live elsewhere, the local paper in the community which they have left is a means of maintaining their interest in the" town.

Atlantic aad \ Gulf Coast ship operators. Princi- j pal issue is the hiring hall--the j place where seamen and lonjshore- 1 men go to get jobs. ! Under labor practices now Srm! ly established, only union merti: bers can get jobs in hiring halls : because the maritime unions have ; all had "closed shop" contracts. ', and they have been running the : halls. ' 8ut the Taft-Hartley act outlaws : the closed shop and says it's an , unfjlr labor practice for an en- j plover to discriminate against un! ion members or non-members. So j the employers now say they can't j sign renewals of their contracts f which expired on June 15--conj tinuing the hiring halls as they j hax-e been operated in the past-- j without breaking the law. Five CIO unions, one AFL and one independent maintain that this ! stand by the employers is a coa- i certed effort to do two things. First . to do away with the hiring hall. Second to bust the closed shop a: 1 sea and along the waterfront, re- J turning to "open shop" hiring of ' men without regard to union mem- · bersh:p. I Employer ship operators and ! shipping agents are far from united on what their future hiring pol- j icies should be. but in general they ; deny both these charges. | Who Runs Hiring Halls? j With regard to the first point. \ most employers say they want to I keep the hiring halls, but they · want them run H'SiTcitly. to com] ply with the law. On the east j coast, hiring halls are noxv main! tained by the unions. On the west I coast hiring halls are jointly run ' by unions and employers. The "dispatchers" xvho assign the men xvaiting their - turns for jobs in the i hiring hails are noxv all union me.n. ! Most employers say that in the i future they must maintain the hir- ! ing halls just as employment offices I are run in other industries, and ! that the dispatchers should be aeu- ! tral--xvhich to them means nonunion men. On the second point, some employers say they are willing to make a "union shop" contract xvith j the maritime unions. This means that employers could hire xvHom S they pleased, xvith the understanding that all employes xvould join the union if there xvas an election in xvhich a majority of the em- | ployes voted that they xvished the j union to represent them' in collec- · tix-e bargaining. i From a practical operating stand| point, this presents a number of problems in the maritime trades ! not common to other employment. ;Jobs are exceedingly irregular. i Loading or unloading a ship is a ! matter of days. Berths at sea last j xveeks or months. Crexvs change i constantly from x'oyage to voyage, j The difficulties of holding elections | to determine bargaining agents un[ der such conditions are obvious I and could easily lead to union bust- jing. i Both Sides Are Reluctant | The position of employers in not j xvanting to sign new 'contracts that violate the Taft-Hartley laxv can ! be appreciated. The reluctance of ! unions to sign contracts that lead i to their destruction is also under- j standable. In this situation, it | seems only fair to say that the {Taft-Hartley laxv is certainly not '] helping labor arid management i reach agreements to renew \x-ork- j ing conditions that have operated i satisfactorily in the past arid have | become established practices. I Neither the Curran nor Bridges i union is m compliance with 'Taft- j Hartley requirements on certiiica- ! tion that their officers are not Com; munists. NMU is now testing this ! non-Communist oath section of the ! laxv in the courts. CIO Marine i Engineers .are in compliance. Other ' unions involved are the independ- '' ent Firemen and Oilers, AFL Elec! trical Workers. CIO Marine Cooks . and American Radio Association, i All *this union politics complicates ! settlement "of current disputes. j Another disturbing factor is a i National Labor Relations Board j complaint S3ed by Great Lakes ; tanker fleet operators xvho charge ; that maintenance of the hiring hall ; is violation» of fair labor oractice. · An NLRB decision on this case ' mav be apnealed to the courts and · a final decision on this phase of the · la-.v may not be made for months. ! This case is cited bv the unions as · evidence that the emoloyers" real aim is to rub out the hiring halls. ' AH parties are now supposed to be negotiating under an 80-day 1 coolins-off period iinoosed by Taft-Hartley law court injunction, xvhich ends Sept. 5. If no settie- , ment is reached by then. Harry Br:dges says there will be a strike aeainst .the laxv and it xx-il! be a iaiapalocia.

No. It could easily happen, and often does, that a man gets into ;the service in spite of a bad dis- j ability It isn't discovered by the i doctor at his first physical exami- ; nation. But in a subseauent phys- I ical it is found out. and the serv- | iceman is discharged for disability 1 --not service connected. However, j i t is true that in most cases a vet, eran who comes out of the service , with a disability can prove it was ; either picked up in service or ag- · gravated in service.
