CI.O. Announces Meat Packers
Strike for Wage Increase Jan. 16
Plants Throughout Nation To Be Affected
By 30 Per Cent Demand of 200,000 Workers
C I ,
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO, Jan. 2 - The CIO-
United Packinghouse Workers Union
announced today its 200,000 mem-
bers would go out on strike Jan. 16
in 147 packing plants, large and
small, throughout the nation in sup-
port of its demand for a wage in-
crease of 25 cents an hour.
Lewis J. Clark, the union's inter-
national president, announcing the
strike call at the news conference,
declared the meat packers could pay
the demanded wage boost without an
increase in meat prices.
Declaring that "the only thing
that will prevent this strike is a sub-
stantial wage increase," Clark said
the union would be willing to accept
a 172 cents hike now, then negoti-
ate the balance later when the na-
tion's general wage picture becomes
Asserting that "The meat packing
companies forced this strike upon
us," Clark said that under present
wages the majority of workers soon
would earn $30 or less for a 40 hour
week. He said the cost of living had
gone up more than 40 per cent since
1941 but the union's 25 cents an hour
increase demand was only a 30 per
cent increase over average hourly
earnings in the industry of 87 cents
J. E. Wilson, general superinten-
dent of Swift and Company Meat
Packing Plants, said: "We regret
that the officials of the UPWA-CIO
have seen fit to announce that the
un ion will gi on strike beginning
Jan. 16. The immediate effect oI
such a strike would be a curtailment
of meat supplies to consumers and
the armed forces. This would alsc
sharply curtail our purchases of
livestock. Swift and Company has
been negotiating with officials of the
union for some weeks and we hope
that these negotiations will continue
without interruption to the com-

WASHINGTON, Jan. 2 -(/)- To
the GI who married several wives on
a South Pacific isle and wanted to
bring them back while he went to col-
lege in hopes of collecting $15 a
month for each of them under the
GI Bill of Rights - the answer is no.
Other people have tried something
like it, government officials reported
today, and have failed because:
1. The Veterans Administration
recognizes but one spouse; it won't
pay any benefits for more than one.
2. The Immigration Service won't
permit more than one wife to enter
the United States.
The soldier said he believed he ac-
quired the wives legally, because it
"was according to native custom."
"It's the way they do business in
this tribe," he wrote. "The chief
wanted fishhooks. I had fishhooks.
He had too many women. I didn't.
So we made a deal.
The soldier had said he wanted to
attend the University of Michigan.
