Of Battles Won Is Hard to Beat By LVLE C. WILSON I'niUd Prcc* SUff Corre*w>ndrht WASHINGTON, May 9. (U.P.) —John L. Lewis on the record of pa«t performance will lick the coal operators and the government in his latest battle of the coal mines. He will lick the public, too. The odds will continue to favor Lewis unless the government represented by President Truman and Congress get together on some means or bringing Lewis and the operators to agreement. If Mr. Truman hesitates to act further or to Invite congressional action, he has cause to be fearful. Lewis repeatedly licked the late President Roosevelt when they met on the field of labor relations. He so Infuriated Congress in 1943 that the legislators enacted a War Labor Disputes Act which shortly Strikers Force Willing Workers Into Idleness Coal Shortages Cause Factories to Close For Want of Materials.
