WEATHER, LABOR TROUBLES:
Auto Output Lags Behind 1963

Legislature
To Propose
A lterations
(Continued from Page 1)

DETROIT {yp} - Two separate
auto production reports indicated
today that U.S. auto output for
1964 is running a fraction behind
that of 1963,with labor troubles
and bad weather sharing the
blame.
Automotive News, a trade pub-

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Walter P. Reu-
ther, United Auto Workers presi-
dent, says his union will try to
relieve General Motors Corps. "of
those \heavy money bags that are
breaking their back."
Reuther's statement Sunday, at
the conclusion of the union's two-
day northeast regional conference,
indicated that the UAW will press
this year for substantial wage in-
creases and other benefits from
GM and other auto makers.
Reuther told 400 delegates the
union would seek a share of what
he called the "fabulous and fan-
tastic" profits made by the auto
companies last year.
The union's present, three-year
contracts with GM, Ford and
Chrysler expire Aug. 31, and the
pact with American Motors end
Oct. 15.
Referring to GM's reported sur-
plus of more than $2 billion, Reu-
ther said: "We can relieve them
of those heavy money bags that
are breaking their backs. It's all
there, waiting, and we will be
knocking at their door pretty
soon."

lication, estimated that U.S. auto
plants had turned out 416,031 cars
as of last weekend, compared with
416,946 at the same point last
year.
Ward's Automotive Reports, an-
other trade journal, estimated car
output thus far in January, 1964,
at 410,470, compared with 415,773
at the same date last year.
Economic Dispute
Meanwhile, the Detroit Free
Press said last night that a public
dispute between automotive labor
and management over economic
issues may be touched off by
President Johnson's first economic
message.
The newspaper said that as a
result of a warning from the Pres-
ident against "inflationary" wage
increases, the wrangling could de-
velop months ahead f of labor-
management contract talks sched-
uled for this summer.
The Free Press quoted manage-
ment sources as saying they will
contend that anything more than
a "moderate" settlement with la-
bor could offset the advantages of
the President's tax cutting pro-
posal and throw the country into
another inflationary spiral.
UAW Move
"The United Auto Workers auto
profits will make it possible for
the companies to give workers a
better contract this year without
raising auto prices," the Free Press
said.
The newspaper quoted one
union source as saying "as long as
auto prices don't go up, we won't
have to worry about inflation."
Eight auto plants in the East
were hit by a heavy snowstorm
last week and Ward's estimated
that the tieup cost more than 10,-
000 planned units.

Poll Sees Romney Victory;
Republicans Gain in State
DETROIT (t)-Republican Gov. George Romney would easily
retain his governor's seat despite a substantial showing by Democrat
Neil Staebler if an election were held today, the Detroit News re-
ported yesterday.
A poll, conducted for the News by Richard W. Oudersluys, presi-
dent of Market-Opinion Research Co., indicated Romney would cut

However, Handy made no men-
tion of committee support for a
bill soon to be introduced in the
House which asks that the voting
age be reduced from 21 to 18.
Handy also said that the com-
mittee wants to reinstate the
state-wide spring election of town-
ship officials which was done away
with in the new document. His
reason for this is "to get some of
the names off of the fall ballot in
order to avoid confusion."
Another controversial issue, ac-
cording to Lansing authorities, is
the matter of redistricting. Co-
chairman E. D. O'Brien (D-De-
troit) suggested an amendment
that would keep present House
and Senate districts unchanged
for the 1964 elections butdorder
redistricting in 1965. He said that
"then in 1966 we would elect both
House and Senate members for
four-year terms."
Under the new Constitution,
House members continue to be
elected for two-year terms, while
the members of the Senate face
election for four-year terms, a
situation that has reportedly irked

In addition, Buick lost about
6,000 cars last week from its pro-,
duction plans because of a labor
dispute at its Flint, Mich., plant.
Settlement of the strike brought

pated that the lost units would be
made up soon.

State Highway Commissioner
John C. Mackie was ranked sec-
ond on the basis of his showing
when matched against Romney.
He would take 33.8 per cent of
the total vote to 48.7 per cent
for Romney, the poll showed.
The poll indicated Detroit May-
or Jerome Cavanagh would rank
third and would be supported by
32.3 per cent to 49.1 per cent for
Romney; Lt. Gov. T. John Lesin-
ski ran fourth with 32.1 per cent
to Romney's 50 per cent, and
Zolton Ferency, Democratic state
chairman, ranked fifth with 27.1
per cent to 51.7 per cent for Rom-
ney.
Mackie, the latest announced
entry into the coming Democratic
primary, opposes both city and
state income taxes.
No State Income Tax
Mackie, in his second of two
television appearances Sunday,
told a Flint viewing audience he
believes the federal government
should "pre-empt the field" of
income taxation.
He said his position against in-
come taxes sets him apart from
most other Michigan Democratic
office-seekers.
"Politically, publicly and pri-
vately, I believe the affairs of
Michigan can be run without an
income tax," he said.
Sales Tax, But.. .
"When Michigan voters ap-
proved the sales tax, it was under
the 'assumption, and rightly so,
that there would be no state in-
ooime tax," he said.
Elsewhere, Michigan's Republi-
can and Democratic state chair-
men have agreed on one thing:
political contributions should be
deducted from federal income tax.

A bill calling for such an
amendment to be put on the bal-

the Legislature this month.
Romney recalled that, as a vice
president to the Constitiutional
Convention, he had backed an un-

new constitution.

"Where do 1 go from here?" is a question many seniors
ask themselves. If you are planning a business career, start-
ing either this yearor following military service or graduate
study, we suggest that you discuss the various alternative
possibilities with Mr. John G. Young, your Placement Direc-
tor. Knowing the present and prospective employment mar-
ket for college graduates, he will be able to offer helpful
suggestions.
For example, he'll be able to discuss the entry requirements
for specific career-directed openings, such as those for
Trainees in one of the Pullman-Standard Management
Training Programs. We hope you'll ask him for more in-
formation about career opportunities at Pullman-Standard.
When you learn more about us we think you'll want to
make an appointment to talk with the Pullman-Standard
Research and Development Engineer. He will be on campus
January 31, 1964. Sign up today for a talk with him.

Handy said that the committee
proposes election of the county
officials for two-year terms this
fall, and for four-year terms start-
ing in 1966, so that their election
would not fall in a national elec-
tion year, The constitution states
that county officials will be elected
for four-year terms starting this
fall. Handy said that he wants to
see county officials elected in an
"off-year,:" but doesn' want .to
simply extend their present terms
of office until 1966, "giving them a
free ride for two years."
Timing is important since sev-

'Panel Urges Congress
'To Advance humanities
WASHINGTON-A national panel has called upon Congress to
launch an effort in the humanities and arts comparable to that
which the government has spurred in the scientific field.
Brown University President Barnaby Keeney, chairman of the
study group, said yesterday that his panel recommends establishment
- - - - Hof a national foundation for the
humanities and the arts.
It would be similar in structure
and operation to the federally-
financed National Science Found-

THE BELL TELEPHONE COMPANIES
SALUTE: TOM BENSON

A special opportunity
27 weeks of Newsweek for only 197

When Tom Benson (B.S., Engineering, 1956) joined
Michigan Bell in 1960, he was asked to put a new method
of handling telephone repair assignments into operation
in his Detroit Plant District.
So expertly did Tom prove out the new method, his
company soon put it into use throughout the Division and
promoted Tom to Staff Service Supervisor.
On his new job, Tom introduced a new cost results plan

to the field force. Another success, another promotion ...
this time to Supervising Foreman. Now Tom is responsible
for installation results in the entire Wyandotte District with
50 installers and five supervisors reporting to him.
Tom Benson, like many young engineers, is impatient
to make things happen for his company and himself. There
are few places where such restlessness is more welcomed
or rewarded than in the fast-growing telephone business.

BELL TELEPHONE COMPANIES

Keeney said such a foundation
should promote the upgrading of
teaching and research in the hu-
inanities, in and out of the class-
room.
Specifically, he added, the
foundation should initiate pro-
grams to improve instruction in
the humanities at all levels; pro-
vide money for buildings and
equipment; develop public and
school libraries,eand encourage
teacher exchange programs.
Kenney spoke to the American
Council of Learned Societies which
along with the United Chapters of
Phi Beta Kappa and the Council
of Graduate Schools, sponsored
the panel's year-long study.
On the platform with Keeney
were Sens. Wayne Morse (D-Ore)
and Claiborne Pell (D-RI). Pell
has introduced a bill to further
the cause of the arts. Morse said
he would not commit himself to
the foundation idea at this time
but added that increased atten-
tion to the humanities had his full
support.
