Wednesday, November 6, I&74 HOPE (ARK.) STAR Page five s Dee 1974 Seal chairman Mrs. Dee McMuffough, county volunteer represen* tative for the Arkansas Lung Association (formerly the Arkansas Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Association), announces that she will serve as Hempstead County 1974 Christmas Seal Chairman. Mrs. McMurrough said, "although November 13th is the official opening date for the 1974 Christmas Seal Campaign, local residents will begin receiving Christmas Seals during the next few weeks. This is necessary because of the recent centralization of mailing to effect economics in the Campaign." "Of each dollar contributed, ninety cents remains in Arkansas and our County for the extensive program of the Lung Association, "Mrs. Me- Murrough added. "The ten cents goes to American Lung Association for additional research and the development of films, pamphlets, and other materials." "Besides being colorful and decorative, the use of Christmas Seals indicates an interest and concern on the part of the user for better health. Contributions from the Christmas Seal Campaign also fight emphysema, tuberculosis, air pollution, cigarette smoking and other respiratory diseases, through research, education and service. Contributions from Seals, memorials, and bequests, are the only means of support for the Hempstead County Lung Committee." This year give more to Christinas Seals. "It's a matter of life and breath." Dr. Harris to attend AMS' winter meeting Another bargaining session schedule WASHINGTON (AP) - With a coal strike a virtual certainty, industry and union negotiators are pressing for an early settlement that would shorten the length of the predicted walkout. Both sides scheduled another bargaining session for today after a Tuesday night counterproposal from the United Mine Workers. UMW President Arnold Miller said the union proposed a "comprehensive contract pack- age" which, if given quick ap* proval, "will prevent a prolonged shutdown of the nation's mines." Guy Farmer, chief negotiator for the Bituminous Coal Operators Association, said serious differences between the union package and what the industry offered Monday need to be resolved. The on-again, off-again negotiations were recessed Tuesday night to give the coal operators a chance to study the 150-page union proposal, the session ended amiably in contrast to Monday night's meeting, which broke up when Miller walked out without notifying the operators. He said they had made a strike unavoidable. Both sides concede that a strike is inevitable and the question now is how long it will Inst. "I want to make an agreement," Fanner said. "I assume they do, tOtf." The steel, railroad, automo- bile, ehetnlcaflftd electric power Industries, all heavily dependent on coal, would be the first to feel the effects of a walkout. The government estimates that a month-long strike would throw anywhere from 200,000 to 400,000 workers out of jobs. layoff notices went up Tuesday at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Co. and the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Co. in expectation of a mine strike.
