AUGUST g), Strike Closes Houston Plant Of Shell Oil HOUSTON (AP) - Some 2,350 members of the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers Union were idle today because of a strike at Shell oil refinery and chemical plants here. A union spokesman said the plant was closed at midnight. Pickets were posted. No workers crossed the lines today. The union called the strike Saturday night after negotiations broke down. Forrest Craig of the union said the strike is over the firing of more than 300 workers during the past year and the down grading of job classifications. The union is also asking a 6.5 cent wage increase, with a minimum raise of 17 cents per hour in pay or benefits. The local said members now average $3.05 per hour. The refinery is Shell's second largest in the nation. Its capacity is 128,000 barrels. ters in Marksville, Cheneyville, Many, Oakdale, Natchitoches, Alexandria, Pineville and Leesville have been invited to attend.

At Laredo, a .26-inch shower last week snapped a string of 47 days without rain. Galvcston went 44 days before a puny .01 inch i fell. I Main effects so far of the summer drought and soaring temperatures have been concern over crops and livestock plus, in perhaps half a dozen areas, volunteer rationing to restrict lawn watering and car washing while city pumps catch up with demand. \ Texans for the most part have I worn a few less clothes and stuck : closer to air-conditioned buildings, i Although the mercury has soared to numerous local records, there have been reports of but| two deaths from heat prostration —one each in Houston and Dallas. In Houston where humidity accents the intense afternoon heal, National League baseball games formerly set for 2:30 p.m. have been moved back to 4 p.m. Special permission for the late starts was granted after several fans suffered heat strokes at a June 10 game.
