Urges Action To Prevent 'Squatting' Washington, Sept 11 Clare Boothe Luce telegraphed a half dozen veterans' organiza- tions today urging them to take voluntary action to head off any i squatters invasion of private pro- iperty such as has occurred in 1 England. Mrs Luce told a reporter she urged the veterans groups to form committees to consult with local real estate boards and rental agencies "to urge action making all vacant property im- mediately available for personal occupancy at reasonable rates." She added in her telegram that such action might avert inci- dents similar to those which oc- curred in England and might "forestall government seizure and allocation of vacant pro- perty." Mrs Luce told a newsman she fully expects "Communist ele- ments" in this country to try to stage a drive among homeless veterans to take over any pro- perty they find unoccupied.

If no relief comes within a few days, said the spokesman, the situation is going to become ser- ious, as all available warehouse space will be filled with manu- factured goods. In addition, it was said that raw materials in- bound by truck have been held up by the strike, and although a good inventory was on hand when the strike began, continu- ance of it would mean scarcity of raw materials. No closing down of any of the manufacturing plants of the Sim have been discussed as yet, said the spokesman. Officials at the Nashua Manu- facturing company said this morning that the mills have not been affected as yet by shortage of raw materials as a conse- quence of the strike in New York. One official said, however, NY STRIKE Page 5 Inflation 18-Hour Day Is Worth Say Workers, Election Wards Although some 15 of the city's 90-odd election workers, including word moderators, clerks, selectmen and ballot maikers, met at City hall last night and voted to attend last night's aldermanic session in the interests of securing a re- ported pay raise from to S20, no measure was introduc- ed during the meeting. Ward Workers have been paid at the rate oJ a day and seek the S5 raise, it is rumored, on the basis that are employed for 18 hour stretch or more in many of the city's polling booths. Some election workers com- plain that the stipend is too low. Ward moderators, for in- stance, are required to check in at 11.30 a.m. on election day, to go to City hall to secure the ballot boxes, re- main on duty until the count is completed, then return the tally to City hall. Especially in the larger wards this task is not completed until nearly 1 o'clock in the instance of long voting hours, it is represented. In each ward on election days there are on duty a mou- erator, a clerk, three selectmen, and four ballot markers, two representing the Republican and Democratic partie; re- spectively, thus making in all same 89 election workers. Schools to Open Next Wednesday RESOLUTION ON PARK LAND SALE BY-PASSED By-passed last night, apparent- ly because of the unexpected heavy file of aldermanic busi- ness, was a resolution which would authorize the sale of the city's nine acres of park pro- perty at the corner of Manches- ter st and Sargent av. Spokesmen from both the Lands and Building committee and also the group reportedly I interested in acquiring the pro- perty as a site for a Catholic chapel said today it would prob- ably come before the Board at its next meeting. Disappointed in its failure to be presented last night were members of a large delegation of North Enders, some 30 in num- ber, most of whom it is under- stood opposed the sale of any park lands for any purpose. Considerable opposition to the disposition of park property for other purposes is reported to have been forwarded to Aid James W. Logan as alderman of ths ward in which the property in question is located and he had with him last night in readi- RES01LUTION Page 6 As far as is known at the moment school authorities are going ahead with plans to open schools next Wednesday even though polio cases con- tinue to be uncovered.
