USING, for the first time, their new standards approved in February, the T.U.C. incomes polky committee yesterday had before them 28 daims for increased wages covering 356,419, workers. Of these, 21, catering for about 549,139 workers brought no objection f rom the committee, with the proviso that far as powtble in some cases the increases should be confined as implementation or mat week, £15 a less than earning to workers of the claim should be delayed until 12 months after the previous settlement The largest of these claims which went successfully through the vettine - procedure was one by the General and Municipal Workers Union for 280,000 manual workers employed in local government. The grounds for the claim were the workers' existing low pay. Also made on the grounds of low 'basic rates, claims for 113.000 workers in the retail meat trade, made by the union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers, and for 100,000 -workers in the hairdressing trade, passed through the committee. They were not satisfied with five of the claims submitted , and are asking the unions concerned •to meet a panel of committee members for discussions. Four of these claims affect workers in the Scottish Bus Group Ltd., and are made by the National and Local Government Officers" Association. They cover inspectors, clerical and supervisory staff , traffic superintendents, inspectors, depot engineers, and departmental foremen. TOTAL LIMIT

From CHARLES ACTON TWO OF the major items if interest in the Sligo Feis Ceoil are the two Players-Wills Bursaries, one vocal which will be competed for tonight, the other instrumental. This year's instrumental one is for the piano and was competed for yesterdaw afternoon. These bursaries represent a splendid gesture by Players-Wills, a gesture that one would so much like other firms to copy. It is easy enough for a company to give a cup, a once-only expenditure, but a bursary is both a prolonged expense, and is'infinitel y more useful. A cup is honour-and-glory : a bursary of real, good, hard cash can mean a tremendous lot to a student, since the strain to a music student is often not so much tuition as either actual living fas, I understand, is the case with this year's winner): all the extras that can make the difference between mere techn ical studiy and real artistic development—the price of concert tickets, schools, travel, or even the ready cash to buy a drink with assurance at the right time.
