begin soon now that contracts between the United Automobile Workers and the big three auto makers have ended The layoffs are described as necessary to permit the manu facturers to reduce swollen inventories and make tooling changes necessary for production of 1959 models The companies were reported to take the view that new lay offs in the absence of a settlement might also serve in some part to deter the union in its plan to strike when it would hurt the com panies most It was understood that the companies do not plan to shut down all operations and lock out the workers THE TIME FOR A STRIKE in the unions view is not when slack sales and 800000 unsold cars in dealers hands would make a walkout futile but when production of 1959 models goes into high gear in the late summer or early
