(By The Associated Press)
Thousands of employees went to
work today with lighter step and a
brighter outlook as a number of
manufacturers, encouraged by busi-
ness upturns, announced wage in-
creases ranging from 5 to 20 per
cent.
The raises were in keeping with
President Roosevelt's appeal to em-
ployers to keep wages up and fol-
lowed the trend established by other
employers earlier this week.
In Pennsylvania 10 per cent pay
boosts were announced by the Su-
preme Shirt Co. of Philadelphia and
the flour and feed brokerage firm of
George E. Rogers & Co., of Pitts-
burgh, while the Berkowitz Shirt Co.
of 'Uniontown added 5 per cent to
its weekly wages envelopes.
In Akron, O., the Goodyear Tire
& Rubber Co. announced that addi-
tional working hours would result in
an increase of 12/2 per cent.
The largest single wage boost-20
per cent-was announced by the
Planters Nut & Chocolate Co., of
Suffolk, Va.
Steel Mills Busy
From Cleveland came reports that
steel mills of that district had re-
called from 10,000 to 20,000 men to
work and provided employment for
5,000 more. Similar announcements
were made by other leaders in vari-
ous industries in different sections
of the country.
At Cleveland also, 10 member com-
,panies of the Independent Ice Cream
Manufacturers' A s s o i a t i o n an-
nounced a 10 per cent wage increase
for 400 men and women employes
Whose aggregate weekly pay is $7,500.
A 5 per cent wage increase was
instituted by the Ford dealers both
of Cleveland and Summit County
(Akron), for their 475 employes.
In order to reduce working hours
to :a straight 8-hour day, a group of
independent Cleveland bakers an-
neounced a 1-cent-a-loaf increase in
the price of bread. They said bakers
would suffer no loss in weekly pay
but that additional help would be
hired for the rush periods on week-
enms wh1wemIep1oy fdtmerly worked
as, much as 15 hours a day.

scientific processes, and should fol-
low the general rules for project
speaking contests. Money prizes

amounting to $50 will be offered for
tle best speeches.

Illinois Students To
Protest Against Fee
URBANA, Ill., May 10-Students of
the University of Illinois will hold a
mass meeting'Tuesday night to pro-
test the $10 diploma fee which the
graduating seniors are. required to'
pay, according to plans made by aI
group of students at Theta Kappa
Phi fraternity.
Opinion is that the $10 fee, the
regular amount which has been
charged for several years, is too high
and more than covers the cost of
commencement.
