wans neighbors Associated Press and United Press International Full Lease Wires MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY OCTOBER 3 1961 c CopyThis Paper Consists Two SectionsSection No ttf First complete strike at Ford in 20 years DETROIT AP Ford Motor Cos 120000 production workers walked off the job Tuesday It was the first nationwide strike against the company in 20 years Production workers went out on strike when company and union bargainers failed to reach a con tract agreement by the unions 10 am strike deadline Ford said 45000 workers were off the job at 16 plants The strike is expected to shut down Fords 85 plants across the nation Series is a matter of money One hand to another By RICHARD SPCNG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau will be no attempt here to predict the outcome of the World Series On a probability basis youd have to go with the Yankees In the staggering 25 times the American League champions have played in the series theyve lost only seven times only four times in the past 30 years In the same three dec ades Cincinnatis Reds have beftn in two series losing in 1939 and taking the duke in 1940 When the Yankees clinched the pennant on last Sept 20 the management was said to have only two real worries The first was whether the Los Angeles Dodgers or the Reds would ac quire the National League flag The reason was a matter of logistics Memorial Coliseum the foster home to which the Dodgers bid adieu this year has a rated sealing capacity of 92 500 fans Actually a record 92 706 paying customers watched a 1959 series game there and a 1959 exhibition with the Yankees for the benefit of the injured catcher Roy Campanella drew 93103 baseballs alltime biggest crowd Field in Cincinnati seats only 32000 although 4000 extra seats were reported being built just in case the Redlegs held on in their stretch drive to win The other worry for the Yan kee ownership What Maris and Mantle are going to ask in the way of takehome pay next sea son For the Yankee players the outcome of the RedsDodgers struggle in the other league was dire too A YankeeDodger se ries would probably have brok en all player pool records with the share for the winning team about 515000 per man That would have been some 9500 more than the Yankees players share when they beat the Reds back in 1939 The 1959 series between the Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox established the alltime rec ord for players shares to which Memorial Coliseum contributed handsomely The winning Dodg ers took down 511231 apiece the Sox The series attend ance and receipts records set in and pear likely to stand up for awhile too despite the fact that only six games were played World series mean a lot of spending even for huge New York which usually greets spenders en masse with the bland good humor of a bear licking a honeyed paw The citys 370odd hotels with up wards of 116400 rooms will be shoehorned tight Choice seats at Yankee Stadium will go atj better than each a game despite the official plus for mailing and top for a box ticket The stad ium was sold out of reserved seats by Sept 23 the day after orders were accepted Hotel and game accommodations a re bound to command even greater premiums in Cincinnati For all that they are solid burghers Cincinnatians are re ported to be spenders as is the whole series Night clubs and restaurants are sure to do turnaway business at Gold Rush prices And this is certain to be a big gambling as well as spending scries particularly because the Redlegs are a kind of Cinderella team one which their fans with sort of perverse sentimentality have taken to calling The Team That Nobody Wanted AP Photofax Howard Ed gerton a Los Angeles financier said he believes he is the man Goodwin J Knight plans to name as being a supporter

Ford and the union de plored the first general walkout against Ford since the UAWs organizing strike of 1941 As the strike hour came UAW President Walter P Reuther told newsmen There is currently in

Coun y county attorney Abrahamson said the decision if the board of appeals on the case would be made public vithin the next week or 10 days In his appeal McKinley asked that 25000 be cut from the pro posed tax levy for the general fund from the proposed levy for the poor fund 510000 from the mental health fund levy and from the pro posed soldiers relief levy If approved this would mean the tax levy for these four funds would be reduced from now proposed by the 1962 budget to In the appeal McKinley said hat such cuts are reasonable be cause the board of supervisors has milt up balances far
