(UP) —Gen. Dwlghl D. Eisciihower today called on 'the American youth to see that "indecision, confusion and iic.sslini.sm" do not Uireaten the military victory in the recent war," In a commencement address .it the annual irraduntlon exercises of Gettysburg College, the Army's chlef- of-stafi said that n "strong, virile" America, united at 11011105 must stand before the world as a tireless supixirtcr or freedom." "The fjrentcst of human goals is to increase the flowering of Hie earth for the benefit of a free people," he said. "And youth must carry the bin den of responsibility." Referring to th e nearby Civil War battlefield, Eisenhower called for full support of the United Nations .strikes against the nienl and refused to work in federally-controlled mines. Lewis conferred anew with coal administrator J. A. Krug as the government strove to solve the new industrial crisis resulting from sumption of the coal strike. There was no evidence that Lewis and Krug were any nearer agreement than they were last week on an interim union-government contract. Lewis, chief of the United Mine Workers (AFL), was grimly silent when he walked into Krug's offices. Miners Refuse lo Work As they renewed negotiation talks, the Senate prepared to take up President Truman's request for legislation to outlaw strikes against the government. The House already has approved the request. Despite this legislative threat: hanging over their heads,, most of Organization, saying: "Never again will a Gettysburg be required to settle a difference between ourselves. The eternal light which symbolizes it can be a prototype for one throughout the world." The college conferred 11^ high- re- | est honorary degree on Eisenhower—that of Doctor of Law.

Strike Truce Ends Thc 400,000 miners struck again at thc end of the two-week truce and Lewis made no move to stop them despite the drastic government taken last week against engi- jicers and trainmen for their walkout on government-operated railroads. £-cwis appeared to he squaring away for a showdown fight with the a.'Jministration. In psi'hnps its first move to accept the challenge, the government sent a ISO-man Army detachment to Madisonville, Ky., to protect em- ployes of a small Hopkins County mine where L. R. Chapman, general manager of the mine, sai;l there had been threats of violence. He said the mine was working with about one-third of its union em- ployes and non-union war veterans employed to replace the two-third who struck when the government seized the mines. The mine employed about 80 union members be- .forc thc strike. Mr. Truman threatened to use troops to break the railroad strike, but it collapsed before his deadline, thus averting the need for such action. The administration has given no sign of whether,it plans widespread use of troops in case of a similar showdown with thc UMW. man, engineer of Drainage District 17. This rise is the beginning of water coming from Missouri, where heavy rains already: have fallen, and enough, water is in sight to cause ii rise to reach 15 feet at Big Lake. The flood stage is 10 feet but water will not run over Highway 18, in the low place between thc old and new levees, until 15 fect is reached. Thc gauge will have to read 17.5 feel before water covers the highway bridge and railroad over the lake.

Trains began moving almost Immediately after tho strike ended at 4 p.m. BST Saturday. Striking engineers and trainmen hurried back to work with unexpected speed. But there was a big job to be done. Freight. Including perishable food, bad piled up In the yards, and some roads will work for a week before they clear It. When work was resumed, foodstuffs began inqvlnit first. About 45.000 carloads had been left In rail yards, at .switching polnU and In warehouses. Thc government rcturne'd the roads to private owner.Milp and the Office of Defense Transportation lifted Its embargo on unessential freight and express shipments. The strike was over, but the repercussions lingered. Industry had suffered a devastating setback In its attempt to hit a reconversion stride. And although the trains were rnn- iilnu, thc issues of thc strike remained unsettled, at least from the viewpoint of the strikers. President A. F.
