Reut he r Hits
60-CentWage
DETROIT, July 17-(AP)-A pro-
posed amendment to the Fair
Labor Standards Act calling for a
60-cents an hour minimum wage
was denounced today by UAW-
CIO President Walter P. Reuth-
er as "shockingly inadequate."
Reuther described the amend-
ment as an "obvious and fruitless
attempt by Congress to wash out
the bad taste" left by passage of
the Taft-Hartley Labor Act.
The auto workers head outlined
his objections in a letter to Rep.
McConnell (Rep., Pa.), chairman
of a subcommittee of the House
labor committee now holding
hearings on the legislation.

Freedman chose Chicago for his
study because, of the larger cit-
ies, it is least affected by peculiar
weather, topography and other'
factors which would minimize the
usefulness of the report.
He divided the city into 24 dis-
tricts and tabulated in each, mi-
grant occupation, work status,
age, sex, education, citizenship
and previous residence.
In this way, Freedman deter-
mined the traits of the migrants
and discovered that, irrespective
of social characteristics or origin,
they tended, in disproportionate
numbers, to settle in the higher
rent districts along the city's rap-
id transit lines. These zones were
typical of the city: rooming hous-
es, apartments, and duplexes, but
definitely not slums.

New Texts ...
(Continued from Page 1)
types of material, according to
Victor Wilson, secretary-treasurer
of the Michigan Bookmans Club.
Books written specifically for
elementary and high school age
levels cover more fields now than
they have in the past . Texts in
psychology, economics and voca-
tional training have been devel-
oped. In addition, books designed
to aid students in extra-curricu-
lar activities are now on the mar-
ket. They include information on
how to organize clubs, preside over
meetings, sponsor dances and par-
ties and produce plays.
