Reaction of "Record" readers on the move; Speculations on the publishers' motivations for the editorial; Perception of the "Record" that the blame for the strike lies with the publishers and their intransigent position and not with the union; Description of the environment in which the pressmen work; Management's decision to impose new work rules that would end up removing almost half the total pressroom force from their jobs; Other factors that have made the strike a potential watershed for New York unions.
