Roller Derby Strike Ends, Skaters Sign OAKLAND (UPI)-The strike against the International Roller1 Derby was blunted Wednesday, according to owner Gerald Seltzer who announced the signing of key players. "As far as we are con cerned," said Seltzer, "the dispute is over. We have signed a vast majority of the skaters and will open our winter schedule as planned this weekend in New Haven, Conn., Nassau, N.Y. and St. Louis." About 50 skaters picketed -the league's headquarters on Mon day and Tuesday, demanding among other things salary increases and improved travel allowances. Some skaters remain un signed but Seltzer said he will continue meeting with them "and hopefully we can reach agreement."
