They are negotiations for new wage contracts for 650,000 miners and a congressional bill to regulate the industry as a public utility. Tomorrow operators and spokesmen for the United Mine Workers j of America sit down to bargain the new wage scale to come after the existing agreements expire at midnight on March 31. Regulation JProposed Tuesday n Senate subcommittee takes up In hearings the bill by Senator Guffey (D), Pennsylvania, designed to permit regulation of the bituminous coal industiy as a public utility and described as the most drastic measure ever proposed for the Industry. When the wage conference gets under way tomorrow afternoon, only the Appalachian region will be represented despite the faet that for the first time in history, all thi union's contract with hltuminou: operators expire simultaneously. However, coal men explain the Appalachian conlerence, rtpresenting about 70 per cent of the nation's soft coal tonnage, will "set the pace" for the rest of the Industry. Hours and wage standards fixed by this group will form the basis for contracts with operators in the Alabama, Illinois, Indiana and western fieds. Informed sources said there was , substantial prospect the union would move for elimination of wage I differentials between the North and i South, by extension of the 5 daily basic wage throughout the industry, j nnMODrPC TflflfiY yyyriLwO I UUfl I HKSATK Meets at noon to receive Piesi dein's NBA uifebaatje.
