4,500 Workers
Suspended by
Chrysler Plants
Walkout Results from
'Loafing' Reprimand
DETROIT, Aug. 15- (P)-Ah esti-
mated 4,500 workers were laid off to-
day at the Chrysler Corporation's
Kercheval Body and Jefferson plants
as the result of a dispute involving
15 men in a Kercheval plant depart-
mhent.
Spokesman for United Automobile
Workers (CIO) Local 7 declined to
corment, but a corporation state-
'ment said the strikers left their jobs
in protest after an employe was given
a one-day reprimand for "loafing."
Meanwhile, UAW - CIO President
Walter P. Reuther said his union was
prepared to begin Federal Court ac-
tion in behalf of veterans claiming
vacation pay from Qeneral Motors'
Corpo'ation.
The issue set off a demonstration
yesterday of 200 veterans at three of
the corporation's Prontiac, Mich.,
plants employing 20,000 workers,
many of whom refused to cross the
veterans' picket lines.
Reuther denied the UAW played a
role in the demonstration, saying the
union's executive board had voted
down the proposal when informed of.
it.
A GM statement said veterans who
were not employed the full calendar
year of 1945 we're not entitled to
vacation pay because it is based on a
percentage of *income earned during
the prior year. This system, GM said,'
had been suggested by the UAW in
previous contract negotiations.
Reuther, however, suggested GM
credit each returning 'veteran with
"a full year's work in 1945 at his
current rate of pay and pay him his
vacation bonus on that basis," 'con-
tending ,the "corporation is obligated
to make such payments" under the
Selective Service Act.,

PRIMITIVE NERVE CONTROL:
Wartenberg Solves Old Medical Riddle

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 15-( P)-A
theoretical solution of a medical rid-
dle which has challenged investiga-
tors for a half century-the cause of
the involuntary facial contortions
which follow nerve paralyses-has
been worked out by Dr. Robert War-
tenberg, University of California
Medical School neurologist.
The solution postulates that facial
and eye movements, which give to
humans powers of expression, are
of man's evolutionary acquistions. Be-
cause of their newness and delicacy,
they easily are knocked. out of oper-
ation.
Loss of Finer Movements
. When the controlling nerves are
disturbed or damaged, these finer
movements may be lost. Then a more
primitive part of the nervous system
takes control. This more primitive
mechanism' is not delicate enough to
handle fine single muscle movements
separately, so it governs them in a
wholesale manner. The result may be
a movement of two or more muscles
whenever one of them is stimulated.
Nerve Injury Mflain Cause
That may mean a twisting of the
mouth when the eye is closed, or a
closing of' the eye when a corner of
the mouth is moved, or the bizarre

movement of a droopy eyelid when
the eyeball is turned downward.
Dr. Wartenberg, whose massive re-
port occupied nearly half an issue
of a medical journal, The Archives
of Neurology and Psychiatry, holds
specifically that the main cause of
these associated movements usually
is a nerve injury which produces
a long-distance effect on the brain.
The trouble begins with damage
somewhere along the nerve which
controls the eye or facial muscles.
If the damage is slight the nerve may
repair itself and normal movements
may be restored. But if the injury
is more serious its effects may fol-
low the nerve channel back to the
brain, Dr. Wartenberg said, and there
cause some change in the center
which governs that particular nerve.
Results In Clumsy Performance
This center has connections with
other brain centers which control
the nerves leading to other muscles.
When it is called upon to stimulate.
a muscle through the damaged nerve
route it may perform clumsily and
also stimulate other muscles through
its connection with the other brain
center. This may give rise to in-
separable muscle movements.
Dr. Wartenberg's hypothesis, the
result of years of study and clinical
observation, is set forth as a substi-
tute for a widely accepted belief that

these mixed movements are due to
defective healing at the site of the
original nerve injury.
For years, he said, most nerve spec-
ialists have accepted the idea that
the damaged nerve lines became
crisscrossed in the healing process,
resulting in a scrambled hookup.
Eye Movements Newest Acquisition
Dr. Wartenberg cited cases in which
associated movements resulted even
when there was no break in the orig-
inal nerve line; instances of infection
in which the nerve was damaged but
not torn open and exposed to criss-
crossing. He also reported cases in
which mixed movements occurred
even though there was no detectable
injury to the nerve line.
This, he said, was evidence of the
extreme delicacy of the human eye
and face muscle control system and
a sign that it is one of the, newest
things in the evolution of man.

to be represented by the Foreman's
Association of America, an independ-I
ent union.
Those affected are general foremen,
assistant general foremen, foremen
and assistant foremen in the DeSoto-
Wyoming, Dodge-Main, Dodge-Forge,
Plymouth and McKinstry plants.
The NLRB failed to sustain a cor-
poration charge that the Foreman's
Association is dominated and con-
trolled by the CIO United Auto Work-
ers.
However, in a dissenting opinion,
Gerard D. Reilly, wrote:
"It cannot be said that the Fore-
man's Association, despite the high
intentions of its sponsors, is a truly
independent entity."
He cited rejected exhibits which,
he continued, ties the association in
with the UAW-CIO.
The board, directing that the elec-
tions be held within 30 days, said
there are indications that the associ-
ation represents a "substantial num-
ber" of supervisory employes in the
plants.
The majority opinion held that
there was "no merit" to a Chrysler
contention that foremen are a part
of management and, therefore, not
employes under the act.
Nor was evidence found, the board
continued, to refute the association's
claim to independence and no evi-
dence was offered by the company
"to indicate that the association is
dominated or controlled by the auto-
mobile workers."
Neither Chrysler nor the associa-
tion had any comment on today's
ruling.

UNESCO Offers
Hope for Peace
By Education
The United Nations Educational,
Scientific and Cultural Organization
offers the best hope of mobilizing
the educational systems of all coun-
tries for peace, according to Dean
James B. Edmonson of the School
of Education.
"UNESCO," he pointed out, "offers
the best means of inducing all na-
tions to use their schools to promote
international harmony by enlisting
the cooperation of all the allied
powers."
Dean Edmonson declared that a
rewriting of the history textbooks
with emphasis on the common desires
and aspirations of mankind will be
necessary in a school program for a
peace-making world. Most texts of
history now emphasize past conflicts,
he 'comnmented, and tend to pass on to
new generations of students the in-
ternational rivalries and distrust
which lead to war.
UNESCO may likewise be useful in
providing a clear flow of reliable in-
formation about all countries to the
schools, Dean Edmonson said.
