(2) Early in the development .of' radar it beca'me necessary to determine the difference between a friendly ship or plane Jind one of the enemy.

Before landings could be made on enemy soil most successfully. Axis radars had to be jammed. And the radars of '(he Axis partners were jammed so effectively that they were useless when the Allies made their landings both in Europe and on the Pacific. One of the most effective devices for jamming consisted of strips .of aluminum foil about a foot long and an inch wide. 'Dropped from planes in., bundles of !60f)0, they scattered widely nnd gave back ;a strong radar reflection .'that completely, screened the Allied 'landing parties. . (4) Another method of jamming lay in the use of long strips' of aluminum foil strung from parachutes. These were* employed by American task forces % pre-inVasion bombardments of Japanese islands. The parachutes were dropped from the planes of the American forces. •Late in the war the Japanese developed a ,radar that could not be jammed, and these helped the kamikaze suicide fly-. crs to find their warship targets.

Lending weight to his outlook was Ihe opinion of spoils writers around the league, who accorded the Barons eighth place in their annual poll, a shade under Mobile's Bears. Despite these unfavorable omens, the Barons pick'ed up strength during the past week with the acquisition . of a half dozen players, and the front office indi- .catpd it was dickering., {91- an ex- periencedr-catcher anil another outfielder. ' • T < ? In addition, the Birming ham club wilf be taking a better than fair exhibition game average into Friday's opener with Atlanta. The Barons broke even in four games with Rochester of the International, took two out of three from Columbus of the American and the New Orleans Pelicans, split two- game series with the Mobile Bears and the Minneapolis Millers, and whipped Little Rock in their lone meeting. Manager Snyder says the Baronial pitching has shown up surprisingly well in exhibition play. He has Wallu Gaddis, th,- slim right- hander who led Baron hurlers with a 12-4 record last season, plus a handful of ex-servicemen who are potential starters. Leading this group is husky John Meketi, discharged from the navy after pitching for Bob Fellers' Great Lakes learn lasl year. Other ex-servicemen who probably will stick are Southpaw Will Guise, who won six and lost six for the Barons in 1943, and the veteran Dick Midkiff, former Litlle Rock hurler who was signed as a free agent last winter. Two others counted on as regulars are Fred Clemence and Oadis Swigart, assigned to the Barons by Pittsburgh. 688,000 Still Idle Due to U.S. Strikes By United Press Public transportation was restored in Akron, O., today, and a threatened power strike in 'Cincinnati was averted. But nearly G88,- 000 workers remained lule m strikes and shutdowns across the nation. The ^fijor labor developments: 1. AFL machinists and CIO tr- isp i-t workers ended their eight-day strike against the Akron nsuui-tauon Co. and accepted a 12-cent hourly pay increase. 2. xne Cincinnati Gas and Electric Co. and the AFL electrical workers union agi-eed on a 17- cent 'hourly wage incre-ase, and a power strike, voted by union mem- i-s ;<() days ago, was called off. 3. An emergency fact-finding panel closed its hearings on the dispute between 130 class 8 railroads and two brotherhoods representing 15 per cent of the nation's railroad workers. 4. Wage .negotiations continued in the week-old soft coal strike, and the American Iron and Steel Institute predicted that the shutdown would cut steel production 185,700 tons this week. 5. The National Wage 'Stabilization Board ruled that only 10 cents of .ini 18-cent hourly wage boost granted Detroit dairy workers could bo used by the companies as the basis for price relief. It was the 'first case not to receive com- lete approval by the national board. For the first time in'eight days Akron residents could ride to work by bus and trolley. The AFL machinists union followed suit a few hours later. Both unions originally had demanded 32 cents. The agreement in the Cincinnati utilities dispute was worked out with the aid of the U. S. conciliation service. In addition to the 17- cent hourly increase it provides union dues checkoff. The agreement is subject to approval by the Cincinnati local union. The railroad fact-finding panel heard Ray T. Miller, attorney ?or the Brotherhoods of Railway Trainmen and Locomotive Engineers, warn that the Ifi-cent hourly pay boost granted last week to 18 other railroad unions-would not be satisfactory to the trainmen and engineers. '• . ; Miller said the unions demanded a 25 per cent pay .increase • and rules changes. President Truman is expected to announce the panel's decision by April 20.'' '• - • Reports received by the American Iron and Steel-institute indicated that the steel industry, which faces a coal shortage, would be producing at 78.3 per cent of 'capacity this week compared with last week's estimate of 87.1 per cent. The institute predicted that this week's output would be 1,379,900 tons, 185,700 tons less than last week. The Briggs Mahufacurihg Co. trunk drives agreed to return to work pending settlement of their local dispute. Their action paved the way for the recall of 12,000 "furloughed" workers.
