will be mailed to all affected employers within the next two days Joseph S Mayer Utah director for the war man power commission said Monday The order announced last Sat urday covers virtually all employ ment in the designated area in establishments employing eight or more workers The important ex ceptions are governmental units and places of employment engaged principally in agriculture Its ac tual effects however will be lim ited by the fact that many em ployers are already operating on the 48hour week This is true of the mining and smelting industry and most of the manufacturing plants producing essential prod ucts It will be chiefly felt Mr Neglect of Fire Department Hit by Mayor City Planning Report Lists Needs for Efficient Operation cost and outworn Mayor Ab Jenkins Calling attention to Salt Lake Citys sharply rising fire loss fig ure the fire departments relative ly low base pay modest per capita stations Monday charged neglect of the fire de partment has been due to the in ability of political groups to asr sess salaries of department per sonnel Head of the public1 safety depart ment for more than three years Mayor Jenkins said under civil service law it is not possible for this to be done in the fire depart ment The men are protected by civil justly so Thats the reason why nobodys interested in building up the fire department The mayor lashed out at the failure of city officials to build up the department in a statement Mayer said by such lines of busi ness as retail trades insurance of ail kinds and the service establish ments MIsunderntandings Arise Mr Mayer reported that the or der had prompted some protests arising largely from misunder standing as to its application Once it is understood he com mented that the order is flexible that there is jio intention of im posing the longer work week where it will serve no good pur pose the opppsition to the pro gram disappears He pointed out that the order is to be applied only where it will accomplish one of three things 1 Release needed man power to other work 2 make it unneces sary for the establishment to com ditional workers or made after a perusal of the Plan Petejn the jabor

Trial for 42 men charged with gambling was continued to Au gust 10 by order of Judge Wilford Movie Burton in Salt Lake police court Monday The men were arrested Friday noon in a clubroom at 35 West Second South street and appeared before Judge Reva Beck Bosone Saturday Eight of the men are charged1 with gambling three with operating a gambling house and 31 with resorting to production He particularly em phasized that the WMC does not want employers to lengthen the work week and release employes before it is known where they can be placed in essential employ ment The order is effective August 19 but this does not mean that em ployers should necessarily begin operating on a 48hour schedule on that date The proper procedure is to first prepare a statement as to the number of employes who could be released by going on the 48hour week and their occupa tional classifications When this is submitted to the WMC direc tor an effort will be made to find essential employment for them elsewhere Then and not until then does the order require the release of any workers It is possible that some work ers who could be released would not be qualified for any of the essential jabs for which additional workers nre needed In such in stances the employer would not be required to make the change May Obtain Exemption Any affected employer may ob tain an exemption from the order by showing that an increase in the hours of work in his establish ment will accomplish none of the desired objectives But Mr Mayer pointed out he must take affirma tive action to obtain such exemp tion He must file a request to gether with pertinent information either with the state WMC or the local office of the U S em ployment service The transfer of workers Mr Mayer said should be carried out in nn orderly manner We cer tainly do not want employers to lengthen their work week and dis miss a lot of workers who cannot be immediately placed in other jobs While the order does not apply to governmental units Mr Mayer pointed out that the voluntary co operation of such employers would be welcomed Federal employes are already on a 48hour week And any local units of govern ment which could release needed man power by lengthening the work week would be assisting the program by so doing Director Mayer said Emery Reunion Set Former residents of Emery county will hold their annual re union
