By HAROLD WARD  WASHINGTON, Sept. 4.~(/P)— The threat of a shipping tieup on all coasts tomorrow built up pressure on the wage stabilization board today to alter its 12-day-old “pay cut” decision affecting AIT. sailors.  From within the board and outside, members were being urged to review their August 23 ruling denying 43,000 AFL seagoing unionists wage boosts in excess of the $17.50 a month granted rival CIO unions last June 15.  John Hawk, vice president of the AFL Seafarers International union, said in New York yesterday thai from 94,000 to 100.000 AFL seamen on the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts were ready to walk off their ships Thursday. He did not set an hour.  The issue took on aspects of a test of the government’s wage stabilization program because of this background:  In July the AFL-Sailors Union of the Pacific negotiated a contract wuth the Pacific American Shipowners association calling for a $22.50 monthly increase for able-bodied seamen.  Litter the AFL-Seafarcrs International Union won a $27.50 a month hike from the East and Gulf Atlantic coast general agents.  Although the war shipping administration approved the higher rates for AFL seamen, the w*age board held that any raise over $ IT 50 would Im* inflationary.  I hat touched off the new strike threat.

Wilson, widely recognized Mi-I ami artist, has completed 58 [drawings which will be used to illustrate a new novel about the Hudson Bay company entitled “Company of Adventurers” by Louise Hall Tharp.  Wilson has won notice with his Indian sketches.  seven months of 1946, Wyatt’s monthly report said the number of priorities issued in July was too small to assure hitting the target of 1,200,000 new homes under construction by year’s end.  In addition, home construction is running into a labor shortage.  Furthermore, Wyatt reiterated that even full attainment of this year s goal still would leave the nation "with a greater shortage of housing, compared with demand. than existed at the beginning of the year.”  Not All Permanent The report placed the number of new dwellings completed through July at 287,000. But of these only 194.200 were permanent houses and apartment units. The rest were trailers, conversions of existing buildings, or surplus war housing put to reuse.  Only about 60,000 of the individual permanent homes started in 1946 have been finished, which means that a majority of the dwellings begun under the veterans’ housing priority are standing in various stages of completion.  Wyatt last week launched a big-seaIe drive to feed materials into the housing campaign by cutting down the flow of building supplies going into other types of construction. This effort to get homes finished by winter involves a 27 per cent cut in the approval of new factory, store, public works and institutional construction.  Labor Problem The labor problem showed up in “a large number of communities.” Wyatt said, especially in such skilled trades as bricklaying imd carpentering. Instead of a movement of labor into residen tial work, the trend has been the other way—95,000 new workers went into non-housing construction in July. against 32.000 into home - building, the NUA chief said. This trend, he added, “reflects the high level of commercial and industrial building.” Production of scare** building materials has been rising steadily, but not rapidly e nough to meet demand.  Current shortages, however, tend to center in plumbing, hardware and other finishing items which are needed in the latter stages of home construction.  Output of prefabricated homes continued to lag. Only 3,000 factory-built houses w'ere shipped in July, about the same number as in June. Wyatt already has cut back this year’s pre-fab program from 250,000 units to 100.000.  Materials shortages have afflicted the pre fab industry perhaps more severely than conventional home construction, Wyatt said, because assembly-line production is utterly dependent upon a smooth flow of materials.  U. N. Hearings Are Underway  Security Council to Hoer Ukraine Charges Against Greece; Certified For Debate  Bv CII ARLES A. GRIMM ll  LAKE SUCCESS. N. Y„ Sept. 4 (/Pl Th** Soviet Ukraine’s charges in behalf of Albania against Greece were set dow'n for hearing today in the United Nations security council as the result of firm American insistence that th** council must examine th** merits of any rase sub nutted to it under the U. N. charter provisions,    •  The case was certified for official debate starting at 1:45 p m (cst) after the United States last night joined Soviet Russia in a bar** seven-vote affirmative majority to place it on th** agenda over the hitter opposition of Great Britain and the Netherlands.  U. S. Delegate Herschel V. Johnson, in voting for immediate discussion of the rase, made it clear that the United States was making no commitment on the merits of the charges, which had been assailed by Britain as "wild accusations.”  After a hoi four-hour debate yesterday the United States. Russia, Poland, China, France, Egypt and Mexico gave the minimum majority vote of seven out of the eleven for hearing the case. Great Britain and the Netherlands voted against it. Australia and Brazil abstained .  Among the items first up for consideration today w*as a Greek memorandum filed last week requesting a ten day postponement and advising the council that Greece intended to file a reply to the Ukraine in the interim.  Soviet Delegate Andrei A.

Sept. 4 -i/l’i -The entire police force of this city of 9,000 — except the chief, w'ho is elected -went on strike for more money at 4 a m. today and th** mayor promptly took over as desk sergeant.  The seven striking officers said they were not unhappy over their 84-hour work-weok—but they did believe they should be raised from $140 to $155 months*.  7’he mayor, Wilson Fisher, 60 decided he would ho desk aer gr ant during the strike after the city council turned down th** raise request at a special meeting last night and set his alarm clock so la* could he on duty at 4 a.m.  Chief of police Tom Liddell also was at work as usual, His salary as an elected official is set by law and there is nothing he could do about it, anyway.  Also on hand — to raise the emergency law* enforcement force to three was Deputy Sheriff Don Stormont, who was directed bv Sheriff Jim Kirby at Okmulgee to lend a hand.  The seven striking officers stuck to their policy of issuing joint communiques and were not talking separately. Neither did they have a communique ready this morning.  They have emphasized they belong to no labor union—and are not affiliated with any organized group.  The city council, at its meeting last night, carefully looked around for money to pay the increased wage demands of the officers but found none, the mayor said.  7’he council members, he added. said they would like to pay th** amount asked — but where could they get the funds?
