Abbott, all of Blytheville. Pallbearers were Barney Crook, Charles Henley, Joe Freeman, Lloyd defense program. Government negotiators were lopeful, however, that one or more of the three struck producers might decide during the day to accept a settlement like that reached Prl- dny by Kennecott Copper Corp. Kcnnecott employees began returning to work last night but a union spokesman hinted they might not stay on the job unless workers of the other three big producers got ;he same wage Increase they agreed i. Keunccott employes returned to work richer by a 20-ccnt-plus hourly wnge boost. The men voted to end their strike Saturday nlgltt, and two thirds of the 4.300 workers showed up at the several Utah plants I'esterday morning. The rest were :xpected back as won as full scale operations could be resumed after the v;cek-long shutdown. Two Ken- necott plants In Nevada also were back In operation. Injunction May B« Aiked The probability that a back-to- work injunction may he asked this week Increased yesterday when the three companies—Phelps Dodge, American Smelting and Eeflnlne, nnd Anaconda Copper—refused to go along with the Kcnnecott settlement. The three companies made 11 clear to a presidential board of inquiry that they thought the Ken- necott settlement went beyond what would be approved by the Wage Stabilization Board. They also disliked the six-month re-opening clause In the Kennecott agreement which dates from July 1 and which might bring on a new wages crisis and strike threat by Jan. 1. With negotiations at a virtual standstill, negotiators scattered for the week-end leaving the three- man board writing its report to President], Truman. That report^ due Tuesday—would be the basis of any government petition for » court injunction to halt the strike. Such a move might come Tuesday or Wednesday. Kenuecotl, which produces 35 per cent, of the nation's copper, agreed to a 15-cent an hour wage increase for Its 8.400 workers in scattered western mines, plus a pension plan which would cost four and a half cents nil hour. From. Fallen Empire to 'Sovereign Nation'— The Newsmapc below compare the Japanese empire of 194S—an area of 3,045,300 square miles, population 25,000,000— with the new JaJpancse nation formed by the San Francisco peace treaty. Japan now consist* only if four mafn Islands—135,600 square miles, population 84,000,000—that she claimed 100 years ago, when Com- nodore Perry opened her doors to the outside world. The new treaty restores Japan as a "sovereign power," s-lth right to rearm and defend herself; while a separate agreement with U. 3. brings her into Pacific de- cnse bulwark against communism.

Delegates doubted that the Saturday deadline would be met. The prevailing prediction is that It may not be possible to have the signing ceremony before the following Monday or Tuesday. And a signing even then depends, In the American view, on adoption of the rigid rules which the United States has drafted. It is seeking support for them from every delegation at the Si-nation meeting, except the three Communist groups. The rules would limit, speeches of each delegation to about one hour and would state, In effect, that the purpose ot the conference I* to sign the Anglo - American sponsored draft treaty.
