SIXTIETH YEAR NORWICH, N.Y., ;SATURDAY, MAY 20, -.1951 FIVE CENTS PER -COPY LONG RAILROAD WAGE DISPUTE ENDS; 33 CENT PAY ME GIVEN MEN Carriers Estimate The Cost Of The Over-All Wage Increases Will Be 97 Million Annually; Increases Are To Be Retroactive i To H.ad Exchange BILLION TAX HIKE OKAYED BY HOUSE WASHINGTON1 two- year-old dispute between the Brotherhood of Railroad Train- men and the nation's railroads has been settled. It was-announced Friday night. A formal statement reportinc the settlement was issued by the Brotherhood of Trulmrion and a committee representing the east- ern, western and southeastern railroads. About IT.n.OOo road aim yard employes are affected. The agreement provides for a wage increase of fii; cents per hour, or J2.G4 a day for yard- men and an increase of cents an hour or ]inr day. for roadmen. These increases, the announce- ment said, include the hourly in- crease of 12% cents to yardmen and five cents to roadmen previ- ously announced, and retroactive to October 1. The previous increases were au- thorised by the Army, which has been technical ty operating the railroads since last August. Presi- dent Truman ordered them taken over when a threat of a strike seemed likely to paralyze opera- tions. Carriers estimated the cost of the over-all wage increases at J97.000.000 a yean The formal announcement of the settlement said: "The wage increases are retro- active and payable follows: Yardmen will receive 21! cents per hour, effective October 1. 1950, 2 tents Jan. 1, 1951, 2 cents; Miireh 1, 1951, and an additional; 6 cents per hour under a cost-of living escalator clause 'April 1951; roadmen will receive 5 cents per hour pctober 1. 5 cents Jan. 1, 1951. 2 cents M.'ireh 1. 1951, and an additional, fi cents per hour under the cosi- of-livmg escalator clause April 1. 1951. "Yardmasters will receive wage increases similar to those granted the yardmen. "Dining car stewards will have their basic hours per moth re- duced from 225 to- 20fi without! reduction in pay. In addition, the j stewards will receive a total, pay Increase of per month, j payable as follows: ?4.10 per, month effective Jan. 1, SIS.02 per month effective March j 1.19jit, and ?12.30" per month effective Anril 1, Jftal. under the c.on-oMiving clause." Another provision in the settle- ment calls for the 40-hour week to ue established in principle for yardmen, hut both the unions and the railroads have agreed, under present emergency conditions and manpower shortages, to defer that until Jan. 1.' 1952. Jn the meantime workers on the individual railroads will have the option of working; either ihe present sev.en-day week or going to a six-day week. Or. K. Funstan fRESIDENT of.

I. death toll of 16. and possibly 25, was indicated hy the navy Friday ;if- ter mi emergency rollcail aboard live vessels in the wake of a mo- tor launch sinking. The launch, with IS5 sailors aboard, went down Thursday morning in seas lashed by a north- east gale as it was returning men to five vessels after overnight shore leave. Two men were kiuiwn dea'd and 2fi hospitalized shortly after scores of dramatic rescues in which shipmates from other launches dived overboard to aid. The navy said most of the men In the capsized fiO-foot emit able to grub life jackets before she went down when heavy seas overwhelmed tlie bow. Friday the navy reported men missing. Of that uumber the navy said were ditiinitely aboard the lost and launch and one other could have been. None of the 13 missing was from New York 'state. The remaining were "unac- counted for'' altogether, the navy but presumably could have been among the victims. The only other possibility was that "sev- eral" of them were absent with- out leave, n spokesman for the destroyer Command Atlantic Fleet reported. Army Orders First Jet-Powered 'Copter WASHINGTON Army lias ordered its first jet-powered, collapsible helicopter.

Onn will be attached to 'each of the two rotor blades. The Army, in announcing the order today, said the helicopter should prove'valuable for observa- tion and scouting work In the opening phases of airborne opera- tions.
