(UP)—A nationwide telephone strike began at 6 a.m. yesterday slowing down service in 43 states and the District of Columbia , and halting work on a major television relay station. More than 68.000 members of the CIO Communications Workers of America walked out in six separate ! strikes for wage increases of 19 to 23 cents an hour. • The new walkouts, added to the five-day nationwide Western Union telegraphers strike, hampered communications in many areas. Some long distance telephone service was delayed and local service in some places was disrupted by “hit-and-run” pickets. Severely Restrict Service It was impossible to determine how many more workers had been made idle by the strike because of picketing tactics. If the strike were fully effective, however, it could idle 300,000 workers and severely restrict service to 34,000,000 telephone subscribers in Washington. D.C.. and the 43 states. Tplephone company officials 6aid that service had been hampered somewhat in Northern California, Nevada. Ohio, Michigan, and New Jersey, but that operations were normal elsewhere. The biggest walkout was that of 15.500 Western Electric company in stallers and salesmen in every state but Vermont, Rhode Island. New Hampshire. Maine and Montana,' where the company has no installations. Halt TV Construction They halted work in 1200 heavy installation jobs. One of them was construction of a TV micro-wave relay station between Dallas, Tex., and Oklahoma City, designed to carry network video shows to that area. An additional 52.500 workers struck against the New Jersey Bell Telephone company. Michigan Bell, Ohio Bell and Pacific Telephone and Telegraph, which services northern California and Nevada, and the Bell Telephone laboratories In the New York City area. Some long distance connections with New Jersey and Michigan and local service in scattered areas was hampered. The CA threw up picket lines on a “hit and run" basis in some areas, as it did in its 1950 strike. Pickets were sent to various telephone exchanges long enough to disrupt operations. Planned Births To Be Topic Of Hillel Talk “Regulating Fertility in Marriage” will be the topic of a speech by Dr. Ruth Aaron, gynecolog.st, • tonight at 8 in the Art and Lecture room of the university library. It is one of a series of Lectures on marriage sponsored * by the Hillel foundation. Dr. Aaron, who spoke here last month on “Should Wives Work?”, will emphasize the psychological and sociological aspects of regulating fertility rather than birth control. "The mechanics of birth control are relatively simple. What is of greater interest is planned parenthood and the emotional responsibilities facing young married couples. This is a matter of community as well as individual interest,” she said. Dr. Aaron is a practical as well as professional authority on this subject. She is married and the mother of three children. Her husband is also a doctor. «5he has been a medical adviser of family problems for 23 years and in 1950-51 was president of the National Council of Family Relations. She also has been a teacher of gynecology at the School of Medical Evangelists and in 1946 was vice-president of the American Association of Marriage Counselors. Admission is free to members of Hillel and 75 cents to nonmembers. Fagg Chosen President of College Ass n. President Fred D. Fagg Jr. has been elected president of the Western College association.

Wilbert L Hindman, associate professor of political science, will explain factors which he considers important for foreigners to keep in mind concerning presidential and other elections. He indends to show that the bitterness which is shown between candidates and parties during such campaigns is net taken as seriously here as it is in some foreign countries. The reasons for a two-party system will also be explained. “It is understandable that foreign students become confused also. Foreigners have to understand the unwritten rules and emotional patter of American politics before they can see the complete picture, Dr. Hindman said.

Providence has been on our side,** he said. Wampus associate editor Tom Pflimlin said that since the copies of Scop had been left here “mysteriously,” Wampus staff members had decided to sell them to SC students “to retaliate for previous thefts by Scop staff members.” * Last Friday a group of UCLA students raided the Wampus office to “get even” for the disappearance of 1000 copies of their latest issue, slated to be distributed yesterday. The copies, they said, were taken by Wampus staffers who showed up at the Scop’s printers, Fashion Press, on South Main street.
