____ "n™ DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHEAST AHKAMO.. .„., ^-A-W A. ^ J ^J ff fcj VOL. XUV—NO. 20 Blythevllle Blytheviile Courier Blytheville Herald Mississippi Valley Leader Public Pressure Jrged to Speed rike Settlement Schwcllcnbach Steps Into Telephone Row With Unusual Move WASHINGTON, April 15. (TJPi — The government In ellect today asked the public lo bring pressure on both parties in the national telephone strike to end thc nine-day walkout by 5 p.,,,, EST Thursday Company and union sources, however, look what appeared at best to Ire a calm view of the strikc-cndim: arbitration proposal advanced by Secretary of Labor Lewi-i B. Schwcllcnbach. The secretary called his plan "an extremely fair" formula for yelling telephone service across the country back lo normal. In proposing it. lie employed a tactic unusual in federal conciliation. Hc made the proposal public in detail, set :\ deadline—5 p.m. EST. today -for acceptance or rejection by thc parlies nnd solicited "die suppoit of thc American people behind It." Seliwcllenbach proposed that the strikers—the union says there are 335.000 ot them—go back to wo;-k Thursday afternoon. They wouk tnlmiil six of their 10 national demands, including one for a $T2 weekly pay increase, to arbitration.'The •Amaining four also would be arhi- T-nted if two days of "intense negotiations" failed. Strikers Skeptical Dut spokesmen for the striking National Federation of Telephone, Workers and.) said the plan had "plenty of bugs." Sources close to the American Telephone & Telegraph Co. K merely that the proposal Is "be... f studied" by A. T. & T. and its Bel faystem subsidiaries. Some company sources though 1 Schwcllcnbach had proposed nationwide arbitration, which A. T & T has consistently opposed. Although Schwellcnbach appeared to leave the issue of local or nationwide settlements up to the arbitrators, company sources interpreted (lie conditions to mean negotiations at the national level. Neither side would say anything to support optimism voiced by federal conciliators that both would accept the proposal by the 5pm deadline. Sources speaking for both sides doubted that a decision one way or -another would bc^KairVed" mush before the deadline. ...The White House, meanwhile, related what it has been Buying for several days—that the telephone strike is In the hands of th-; Labor Department. Bicrne summons Aides In a hastily called' conference last midnight, Schwellenbach handed the government proposal to top union and company officials with the warning that the walkout must end before public health and welfare ar^endangcrcci. NFTW President Joseph Biern. summoned his union's 49-memb»r policy committee to an early morn- i'lg session and promised to give the proposal "serious consideration." 'Federal conciliators were confident it would be accepted by both parties Eincc it was closely patterned after a "tcn'.'jtive agreement" reached last wcc k between the American Telephone & Telegraph Company's long distance department and tile American Union of Telephone Workers, an NFTW affiliate The government proposal would establish a five-man arbifmion board to make binding awaids on Unlons 10 r Company Asks Authority To Issue Bonds .i, ' Arfc - A ' )ril 15.
