(UP> —Soft coal oprnUnrs feared today that John u Lewis, miners might start walking out of the pits by Monday to back up their leader's demand for a pension plan. Two responsible Industry suukos- mcn agreed thai a strike next week Is "certainly a possibility." "Things could start popping iiuy lime," said one spokesman. "It wouldn't lake much tu set oft a chain reaction." Thoir fears u-oie pi ninpled by Lewis' unnoiincement late yesterday that he has instructed all United Mine Workers locals to bi'kill discussion of what he called the industry's refusal to consider pension demands. What, worried industry leaders most was that Lewis lit diti not specify whether this meant a strike, and (2i announced .scornfully that he would not Rive the government, any advance notice of a walkout bv his 400.000 soft coal miners. Some operators said tlie fact thai Lewis did not set a strike d;ite mi^ht, be interpreted by the minors as n signal to quit any time. Very feu- mines are open today, so operators conjectured they would have to wait until Monday to find out what's up. In his letler to Ihe locals, T ewis said the "bituminous coal operators havr dishonored the i!H7 wage agi" vnt and defaulted under its S visions affecting the welfare d." He charged, thai they "con- Lie to violate the contract. 1 ; "This office iiropuscs." said "lewis, "to so forward In requiring the coal operators to honor their agreement.
