total for the month since 1940.
The government reported yes-

creased by 452,000 to 4,031,000 in
a, steady upward trend that is ex- "
pected to hit a peak somewhere S
between five and six million in
early 1961.
The new Job figures for Novem-
ber also show that employment
declined by 308,000 to 67,182,000.
This, too, represents a record, de-
spite the decline.
But the mounting total of job-
less is what's worrying the econ-
omists and politicians. Indications
are this problem will require pri-
ority treatment by the new Ken-
nedy administration-and the new
Congress-soon after they get to
work in January.
