WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 1040 BLYTIIEV1I.1,R (AKK.) COUUIEU NEWS Railroad Strike Threat Spreads Non-Operating Unions Favor Nation-wide Walkout, Official Says. CHICAGO, May 22. (UP1- Union officials predicted today that the majority of 1,000,000 non- operoling railroad employes favored n nationwide strike. The prediction was made as officials of 15 brotherhoods and unions counted ballots In a strike vote. Tlic dispute is separate from the one that nearly resulted In a railroad strike last Saturday, involving 250.000 engineers inul'train- inen. Tlie dispute involving 1.000.000 non-operating railroad workers hns not yet readied the strike singe Brotherhood officials said the results of (lie strike vole might not be announced for another month. After that, attempts would be made lo mediate the dispute before a strike date was set. The 15 non-operating unions were granted a wai>e increase oi 1G cents an hour by an arbitration board April 3. They originally liad requested a 30-cent hourly raise. Dissatisfied with the arbitration award, they filed a new demand for an additional H cents an hour on April 15. This Is the demand which resulted in tile present strike vote. Even though tlie 15 non-operating brotherhoods would not participate in the strike of engineers and trainmen if it tnkes place when the present truce expires most, of them would be made idle. Carriers Employ 1.41-VOflO A .survey revealed that a total of 1.414,000 railroad workers — members of 21 different laliov or- ganizationswoultl be atfectec! by the trainmen and engineer;:' strike, including 250,000 of the two slrik- _. hip unions. C This is Ihe cencral labor picture ^••on the Nation's railroad today: There are five operiiliiiE! brotherhoods, all independent. In addition lo trainmen mid engineers there include the Order of Railway Conductors of America, the Brotherhood ol Locomotive Firemen and Engincincn and the Switchmen's Union of North America. unions Many Extortion Note Fails to Worry Boss Ed Crump MEMPHIS. Tenn.. May 22. (DPI —E. H. Crump, 70-year-old Shelby county political czar, today blamed newspaper articles in the Washington Post for a $50,000 extortion note which he said he received. Crump, astute major donio rjf Tennessee politics for almost 50 years, declared that a "scurrilous" article in the Washington Post led to the letter. He said that Mrs. Agnes E. Meyer's articles—"scurrilous, filled with fnbricntlons and distortions of facts" —Inspired threats of death to himself or Mrs. Crump unless he produced $50,000. The letter was signed, "Revised Cupone, Inc.," but Crump told newsmen Inst night, "1 am certain I know tile sources of the threatening, cowardly Ictler which was Intended to Intltnldntc me. "Only a craven coward would resort to the tactics which this Ict- ler reveals." the shabby, silver- haired Memphis Insurance executive w'.io carries the Tennessee congressional vote in his hip pocket, asserted. "The writer and bis backers know lhat an election is coming on and are hoping to disconcert tnc. But it will have no c/Tecl on me in tile least, or any member of my family. "No one Is going to kill Mrs. Crump, or kill me. And they arc not going to frighten me," he added. The letter, mailed at a Memphis sub-station and received Saturday, demanded that Crump be ready to put up $50,000 by May 20. FBI representatives refused to comment, nnd Memphis police said last night they had not heard of tlie letter. No extra precautions wer^ | being taken at the Crump residence j although the deadline had passed. Extortion notes, however, arc no novelty to the rough and tumble state boss. Navy Wants Subs Propelled by Atomic Power WASHINGTON. Mny 22. (U!>>~ The Navy has asked Congress for funds to develop atomic enemy Plants as a source of power for propelling ships—particularly sub- innrlnes. Ctipt. R. D. Conrad, director ol scientific planning for Die Nnvnl Office of Research and Inventions, urged Hie House Appropriations Committee to granl $1,500.000 for the necessary rcsc'arch. He said that submarines will soon be "obsolescent" unless greater power Plants can be developed. "Tlie course of Hie British and American development of antisubmarine equipment during tlie late war \\-lll render a submarine obsolescent unless power plants of appreciably m'caler capacity can be developed." he declared. Tile immediate problem, he cou- .tinned, is fundamental research into basic atomic theory and liuo i great many scientific and en- ncering problems which do not volve use oil. 1949.
