(UP) — Officers of the striking National Federation of Telephone Workers today again urged the Dell System companies lo "talk money" as a quick means ol ending thr: nationwide walkout. Unioii officials were nopelul that the $2.50 weekly wage inc.easc offered by thc Northwestern Bell Company would loosen the purse strings of other companies In the system. The unions in the five states in the Northwestern system were rejecting the oiler as "unsatisfactory." but oiliciais welcomed it as a "talk- Ing point." Union officers here hoped it would prod thc other companies, particularly the parent American Telephone & Telegraph Co., into making a wage oflcr. The companies' position has been that they would arbitrate thc whole question of wages—on a regional basis —without fust making any formal oiler. Joseph A. Beirne. Nf'f'W president, said at Pittsburgh the |k strike could "end in 24 hours" if ™,8thcr managements followed thc ^pid of Northwestern Bell and "talk money." lieirne Sees Progress Bcirno die; nol mean that anj wage offer would end thc strike but that offers could expedite the negotiations for settlement. At Cincinnati, the Cinc'ur.nti am Suburban Bell Telephone Co., agreed lo renew public mecllngs with strikers. Thc firsl meeting was to be held tomorrow. Elsewhere, the unions reported their lines holding.firm despite tnc long walkout. A national union official here said there had been "no substantial" back to work movement among the 340.000 strikers.

There were no indications that the Bell companies would go beyond the $2.60 Northwestern offer. But observers thought middle group might be reached between the 52-50 and $6 figures. Government conciliators thought they were making progress toward a settlement. - Union sources were more optimistic, with President Joseph A. Beirne •£jt;he National Federation of Tele- •|!Sjhe workers predicting a "major break in the not too distant future."
