As Puiblicity
United Auto Workers demands

Prof. Edwin E. Witte, former
chairman of the University of
Wisconsin economics department
said it was a publicity move one
should expect at the beginning .of
the bargaining sessions.
At the last round of contract
negotiations', the union demanded
a guaranteed annual wage and
ended up with supplemeitary un-
employment benefits proposed by
the Ford Motor Company, he
pointed out.
Prof. Harold Levenson of the
economics department said the
unions are in a weaker bargaining'
position now than during the 1955
contract talks when the industry
had its highest production year'
and there was very little unem-'
ployment in Detroit.
"The smaller companies, includ-
ing the parts manufacturers are
in more difficulty profit-wise and
the UAW seems concerned about
this and appears to be trying to
make a differentiation in its de-
mands," he said.

Prof. Francis explained that the

broad purposes: 1) to discover a
