May 16. (U.P.)—President Truman today asked the deadlocked miners and sol'l. coal upfrnlors to submit their disputo to arbitration. The President announced lii.s request after talking briefly with John L. Lewis, president of the mine union, aiul Charles O'Neill, representing the operators. They told him that their negotiations had collapsed ai:d that flirt her sessions would be "useless." Mr. Truman said he then pro- [ — - — K~... Dominion Status Offered to India posed arbitration and asked them to report back to him this afternoon at 5:30. They left to discuss his proposal witli I'ncir respective organizations. Mr. Truman announce;! his proposal at a brief, unscheduled news conference. Unusually serious and opcnoly worried, Mr. Truman said that llle nation ivas in "desperate slrnits" hci-ause of the work stoppage in coal. He said the step he took today was anothtir in n lung series of government efforts lo ease the coal crisis. He proposed to the miners and the operators that each side submit their basic differences to an arbitrator, with the miners re- maininp tit work during the period of arbitration—even after the present two-week truce expires Mav 25. He said he asked the miners and operators to agree on an arbitrator. If they could not agree, then the President would propose an arbitrator. Asked what he would rio if the two groups rejected his arbitration proposal, the President deferred his answer until such a situation arises. Mr. Truman said both'the miners nnd management informed him at the outlet of their negotiations that they thought they could g'jt together. iwv-uM^-V; "^..ik.^-^^-.' wrts repealed to him, the President said, two additional limes. But today, he added, he found tlac negotiations deadlocked nnd thc nation facing increasingly serious consequences as a resuH. Tlie i present deadlock is on Lewis' demand for a 670,000,000 union wel- , fare fund. Wages have not been I discussed. ' . Sitting with the President as he made his brief statement to report- . crs were Secretary of Labor Lewis , B. Schwellenbach, reconversion di- | rector John W. Snyder, John R. Stcclmaii,- special assistant to the President, and Edward P. McGrady, special mediator in the dispute. The statement Mr. Truman madc was discussed by the government's labor chiefs for more than an hour I after Lewis and O'Neill left the White House shortly after 10 a.m. Lewis nnd O'Neill emerged from the president's office at 10:15 a-m. IESTI. They reported only that they had been asked to return at, 5:30 p.m. Nccntiations Stalemated According to Secretary of Labor Lewis B- Scliwellenbach, the principal question to be determined today was whether it was worth while to ask the UMW and industry representatives to reopen negotiation?. Their discussions were broken off I indefinitely yesterday after the ' conferees ran into a new stalemate over Lewis' demand for a welfare fund. Thc two sides didn't even come clo.se to meeting Mr. Truman's request that they bring him a new agreement by yesterday. Schwolienbach reported that no settlement formula was offered to Lewis and O'Neill yesterday and that none would be offered, at least until after further government feelers. He attended the conference along with reconversion director John W. Snyrier and Presidential assistant John R. Steelman. Defense Control Plan Proposed by Britain May Bring Opposition I»\' HAROLD OUAKD Unitrd Press Stuff Correspondent LONDON. May 18. (UPI—Britain today made public a plan for a transitional Indian Kovermncnt which would roughly approximate dominion status, but with- Britain maintaining control of Indian defense arrangements. Tlic interim plan was submitted to the House of commons by Prime iMinister Clement R, Atllce and to thc Indian Congress party . and the Moslem League by the British cabinet delegation in India. It was believed certain lo arouse immediate Moslem opposition since it rejects tlic Moslem demand for "Pakistan" or autonomous Moslem states within India. The plan would give India a central government nnd all-Indian ; ti-'nol b'ut thc British commarxter*. in-chief, it was understood, woiilr! be invited to serve under the Indian defense minister and \vith joint responsibility to Britain and the Indian Rovernment. 10-Year Interim Rule The interim regime would rule for 10 years and would be charged with responsibility for drafting a constitution and establishing groundwork for an independent India. It was believed that Indians would object to the proposed de- pj I fense arrangement, placing the major responsibility in the hands the British coinmaiider-in-chief. The Pakistan proposal was rejected on ethical grounds and because the principal Moslem areas lie in northeast and northwest India and establishment of independent Moslem states would complicate defense arrangements.
