Black Market Vanishes
The big black market In Amer

candy is a dim memory. Gone are
the colorful streetcorner stalls.

of the Palace of Justice, is Just

Berlin's Anti-Red Rail Strikers
Vote Down Soviet Compromise Bid
BERLIN, June 2. IJP) Berlin's sidered "on the fence and mi
oirecuy invuivcu in hub s "
anti-Communist railway strikers
rejected overwhelmingly Thurs
day a Communist-sponsored offer
for settling the crippling railroad
strike. The vote was 13.477 against
to 398 for.
Under the compromise, the Russian-controlled
the railway had offered to pay
West Berlin workers 60 per cent
of their wages in West marks,
worth much more than the East
marks circulated In the Soviet
zone. The strikers are demand

Officials of the Western-sponsored
UGO railway union said
more than 1,000 votes were cast
than there are names on the
strike roll. They explained this
by saying that excess represent

Floating Mines Still
Menace To West Coast
ASTORIA, Ore., June 3. UP)
Those floating mines along the
Oregon and Washington coasts
will probably remain a menace
for the next decade.
That is the opinion of Lt. I. G.
Nelson, 13th Naval District bomb
disposal officer, who came here
to get rid of a 10-inch artillery
shell turned up on the port docks
by a bulldozer.
Nelson said a mine can float
across the Pacific from Japan,
cross the ocean again, and re
turn a third time to the coast
That circuit following ithe Jap
anese current, would take four
years, he said.
The result was the expected de
feat of the compromise which
was agreed upon between the non
striking Communist Free German
Trade Union and the Russian
controlled Reichsbahn (railway).
The railway management re
fused UGO and deals only with
the Communist Trade Union Fed
eration of East Berlin.

NEW YORK, June 3. (F The
trend toward a higher proportion
of poliomyelitis cases among
adults continued during last year's

A survey based on cases from

Children under 10 made up 60.2
percent of the survey total; chil
dren bptween 10 and 14 consti

the 15 to 19 age group 7.7 per
cent. O'Connor said the trend to
ward higher incidence among
older age groups was Indicated
by comparison with surveys of
previous years, although no post
records on any exactly compara
ble basis are available.
O'Connor said the apparent In
crease of polio among older age
groups probably can be attributed
to population increases in these
groups and to more accurate re
porting of cases.
