(UP) — Soft conl operators today rejected I safety demands of the united Mine Workers which President John U Lewis handed them in thc form of an ultimatum. Negotiations were deadlocked a.s the nationwide strike of 400,000 miners continued. Lewis told reporters that (he conferences would continue tomorrow, but that the union could see no use in continuing discussions if the operators' present attitude liersislcd. He sold that the management representatives had rejected three union proposals after being told that those demands represented "the irreducible minimum" thnt tile miners would accept in a new contract. Thc union then sought to recc«; the negotiations to report a disagreement io the full wage conference, but thc operators vetoed thnt proposal. 1 "The mine workers will not ac- rp'->» n roiitr ! «c.t, that won't, abate unnecessary slaughter (in mine accidents," L,e\\ is snid. He made public thc three resolutions rejected by thc operators' negotiating committee. They were: 1. The operators and miners would agree to accept recommendations of the U. S Bureau of Mines Inspectors, reserving the right to appeal to thc Director of the Bureau. 2. A safety committee of mine workers would be established Ji each nv/ > with authority to remove employes found working under dangerous conditions. 3. The operators would agree to prevent contamination of drinking wa^ei used bv occupants of com- "pa~ny-'owned •'•Houses/*' Lewis said the old contract, which expired midnight Sunday, provided for employe -safety committees but did not authorize them lo remove men from dangerous working pHi- ces. He snid the union had urged the operators not to vote against the three proposals to spare them "the humiliation later of voting yes." "We hoped they would save their own faces." he snid. "They spurned out suggestioas." The union then offered its motion. Lewis said, to report a disagreement, to th c full wage conference. He explained the union wanted a public discussion of the disputed issues. Lewis said that the operators, in voting down the motion, "flinched from tiial responsibility, desiring to continue their dog-in-the-manger policy and attitude." The union agreed to the operators' request lo resume negolia- timis tomorrow. "If the operators continue their present attitude, we sec no use i" meeting with them." Lewis said. ''However, we will be there."

Russia And Iran Both Remain Silent On Request Of Council NEW YORK, April J. <UP>—A Mixture of hopo mid doubt prc- i'iiUc<i among United NRllons rtele- ;alcs today \vllh loss than 24 hours eft for I he Soviet Union and Iran to answer (he Dulled Nations Security council's request for more Information about the Soviet-Iranian dispute. UNO SecrotRvy-O^ncr»l Try«>e lilt's office revealed thut nt 11 a.m., EST—24 hours before tomorrow's council meeting and (he deadline for answers—neither party to the dispute had replied. Some delegates still doubted that (he Soviets would reply before April 10.—Their own deadline which the council rejected. But most of them still hoped that satisfactory replies would lie received in time to allow Soviet Ambassador Andrei A. Oromyko to resume his plnce at the council (able. Groinyko told reporters on his arrival at the Soviet consulate tills morning: "1 am In constant communication my government Dr. M. L. Skaller Sells His Clinic Temporarily Quitting Practice; Dr. Webb Will Take Charge Dr. M. L. Skaller, well known physician, is temporarily giving up his practice here because of 111 healtii and has sold his clinic to Dr. Floyd Webb. Overwork during the war yenrs has caused a heart ailment which he plans to Improve by an extended vacation on thc Gulf of Mexico in tfAUS. "" * . .-•-' When improved, he plans (o resume his practice here, lie said today. Dr. Skaller probably will leave BlytVicville wit Inn a few weeks to visit at Corpus Chvisti and Brownsville, Texas, before deciding upon the place most beneficial for his health. He then will be joined by Mrs. Skaller, the former Miss Francise Rosenthal, and their daughter, Joy Skaller. Upon their return here they will ngain reside at their home, 1505 West Walnut. The clinic, established three years ngo by Dr. Skaller, is in thc Ingram Building at 112 South First. Dr. Skaller began the practice of medicine here almost six years ago after having completed his Interneship in a St. Louis hospital. Dr. Webb is an oar. eye. nose and throat specialist who has hfld an office here for a number of years. a.s Is any other council delegate."

The other point to IK considered will be the effective date of thc net if it is npproved by' the people. Bird snid it probably would become effective July 1. 1947. if the 350 pupil minimum is set. but It would be postponed for another year if the !iOO minimum is decided upon. Under the proiiosed bill, the County Board of Education would become the bonrd of directors of thc new district, nnd would study the entire school progrnm of Its county. Then if the Ijonrd found districts too small to operate efficiently, they would be annexed to neighboring districts. "In this way," Bird said, "districts large enough.to support an accredited high school would be formed." ,.: • He pointed out that now there are 2345 school districts in the state. of which 2000 have less than 350 pupils and do not have Accredited high schools. More than 40,000 Arkansas youngsters arc not in high school, largely because of the present, system of small districts. Bird said. More than 500 members of the representative council are expected In Little Rock Friday to attend the business meetings and two joint Little Rock Chamber of Commerce- Education Association meetings. Spokesmen for Irnnlmi Ambasia- dor Hussein Ala, who was given!a vote of confidence and full authority by Iranian Premier Ahmad Ghavam Essnltaneh, said the Iran- Inn reply to thc council was expected aiii; lime.
