Tlie first big break in the louv- uay old walkout came last midnight when the A. T. and T. reached a basis for agreement with the jonp lines affiliate of (be NPTVV workers. The long lines union, which icprc- senls 20,000 of the 325.000 idle telephone workers, has been regarded us a key to the walkout which hss seriously crippled long dlslaiicn and non-dial phone service across ihe country. Both company ami union officials emphasized that the partial nsree- jncnt did not mean an end (o t!ir> strike but only provided a basis lor a possible settlement in the near '™'' c ; ' future.
