It has been impossible to get it out on ; me iioor for a vole. ! When repre entatives of soil conservation districts in many stales ."anie lo Washington two months jago lo press for action, a clever ; piece ol strategy was projected. Instead of going the direct route it | was v decided that the districts , would u-y to gain their objective j indirectly. Congressman Wilbur Mills of Arkansas was chosen as spokesman to appear before the House Appropriations subcommittee hand- Hug the Agriculture Department appropriation, and ask for $2,000 - uuu tor purchase of the equipment ,,-ni nC ?i ll 'A S wiso ' whcn dealing .villi the Appropriations Committee, to ask for twice what is expected. Congressman Mills had reason lor gratification last week when ine Api-opnations Committee reported favorably on a $1,000,000 allocation for the purchase of surplus machinery from Ihe War Asset,; Corporation by the Agrieul- Hnx 1 Department. That is strictly an inlra-govern- icni transaction, bul it will be iHe mom-is of making the equipment available lo districts JOB // you sat down and made a list of all the advantages you d like to find in a job, yo ,,' d wind np „,;,/, someth \ very close to n'hat the Re K nlar Army offers you right now. // you've never thought of an Army job check over these points: * ii 1 GOOD PAY Most of your Army pay is clear savings. Food, shelter, clothes, medical and dental care arc all provided. Insurance, amusements and other incidentals cost far less. You're way ahead of the average civilian. 2. TRAINING It lakes first-class technical training to handle thc Army's modchi equipment. Thai's why you get thorough instruction in one or more of 200 skills. The best trade schools in the world fit you for a future career. 5. ADVANCEMENT Thu new Army needs a high percentage of technical experts. If you have thc ability, you can earn quick promotion to higher grades, with more pay. And there's always an opportunity for qualified men to become candidates for officers' training. 6. CARE OF DEPENDENTS The Army pays liberal family allowances for dependents. Army service need cot interfere with a happy married life. 8. SECURITY i - Jf you choose to stay in the Army, you can retire at half pay for Ilic rest of your life after 20 years' service, and so on up to llirce-ipmrn-rs pay after 30 years' service. As a civilian you would have to pay S»4 a month for annuities to provide such a retirement fund. 9. START NOW 3.

"I have a large apartment in Larehmont thai I can move into, if 1 must. I'm fighting for these oilier poor souls, and for the sake of Ihis famous old building."

Intervenes in Telephone Strike Threat By WILLIAM NEEDHAM Washington, March 7 — (/P) — Government intervention averted today's threatened nationwide telephone strike joist 25 minutes before he 6 a. m. (EST) deadline. Seventeen hours of unremitting iressure by United States concilia-, ion Service officials led to agreement on "pattern" wage increases ranging from $5 to $8 weekly. The agreement came too late, however, to prevent walkouts in several cities, and picket lines were thrown up in Washington, Philadelphia and at several points n Ohio and Michigan. Baltimore operators struck last night but be-" an to return to work shortly after a. m. The wage "pattern" was set in a contract between the American Telephone and Telegraph Company and the Federation of Long Lines Telephone Workers signed at 5:30 a. m. On the basis of the long lines set- .lement. the executive board of the National Federation of Telephone Workers, five minutes later ordered cancellation of the strike called by the long lines union and 16 other NFTW .affiliates. Thirty-four others had been expected by the union to observe picket lines. Local union officials, finally informed of the cancellation, immediately issued orders recalling the pickets who had taken up their posts in several cities, but varying delays were anticipated before telephone ser.vice returned to complete normalcy. Although the long-lines wage agreement reportedly was reached before midnight last night, Joseph A. Beirne, NFTW ^resident, w4.s . unable to issue the strike cancellation .yntil mai)y.rfhours 'later;' of the necessity for polling local' unions by long-distance telephone: Finally, 25 minutes ahead of.the strike deadline, Beirne was able" to telegraphe each of the 51 member unions of the NFTW the final word. His telegram said an agreement "in respect to wages for affiliates has been reached" and that the member unions which had wage disputes with the American Telephone and Telegraph company were "in general, in agreement with thc settlement." Beirne's telegram was based on a wage pattern established by an agreement between the A. T. , T. and the Federation of Long Lines Telephone Workers. The pattern provides for some $6,800,000 in wage increases for more than 19,000 long lines employes. Wage increases ranging from $5 to $8 a week are provided in the agreement which becomes effective as of Feb. 1, 1946. The new wage rates will remain in effect until March 6, 1947. The new rates were labeled a national pattern by Edgar L. Warren, chief of the Federal Concilia- lion Service, in announcing the set* llemenl less than 30 minutes before the strike deadline. Beirne, asked whether the member unions had agreed io accept Ihe wage paltern, replied: "A sufficient number of unions have accepted the pajlcrn to warrant the executive board to make a decision and issue ils order in respecl lo the slrike."
