Bv ( HAKI.HS H. Ill.ltliOI.l) United 1'rcss Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, June 1. (UP) — Cliances for averting a national maritime strike diminished today amid union charges that President Truman had "torpedoed" negotiations for a peaceful settlement of their dispute with shipping operators. Seven union leaders denounced Mr. Truman's assertion yesterday that he would use the Navy. Coast Guard and War Shipping Administration to keep vessels sailing if the walkout of 200,000 maritime workers occurs on June 15. "By guaranteeing the American ship operators that he will break any maritime strike, he (the president) has encouraged Ihe American .ship operators to refuse any rca- sonuble settlements in the current negotiations," they said in a statement released by Presidents Harry i Bridges of (he Longshoremen (CIO) and Joseph Curran of the National Maritime Union (CIO). Make Threats of Their Own They said they hoped that "Ihe American people will make President Truman realize that he needs a cooling-ofl period between his strike-breaking acts." "The torpedo that President Truman sent into the union-shipowner conferences will eventually have effects he never anticipated," they said. "It will e/^ntunlly explode to tlie detriment of.hls entire administration, his party and a ; ny future presidential ambitions he might entertain at this time.' 1 The unions said they would continue the negotiations which am scheduled to .resume tonight at a p.m., EST. ; >;:.- . -. .-...•'*•"•;•—.-. Mr. Tnunan has "turned his back" oil his and the Democratic party's pledge to American seamen to support a reduction in the work week . from 56-63 hours to 40 hours, tlie unions said. They contended that a 'shorter work week is the main issue in dispute. Snow in Minnesota Greets Arrival of June on the Calendar Shivering inidwcstcrncrs dug Into closets In search of toitcoats today and government meteorologists I said the "Arctic" June weather would, continue until Tuesday Snow flakes fell In St. Paul during the night and (rcc/ing lem- lieratures were recorded at several Minnesota points. Cold, biting nir extended from northern Pennsylvania westward to Nebraska, cutting across Iowa, northern Illinois , Indiana and Ohio. Temperatures held in the low and middle 40's. Meteorologists blamed the nn- seasonal chil on an "unusually large and powerful cold mass" which settled over Hudson Day and forced warmer air southward. The cold area still was moving southward. Tf the sun shines bright, temperatures may reach the low OOM before Tuesday, the Weather Bureau said. But clouds may put a 55-degrcc ceiling on Ihe "mercury. George Robson Wins Indianapolis Race Mississippi Barge Line > St rike Tooms ST. LOUIS, June I. fU.F.)—A walkout ot about 3.000 barge lines workers on Ihc Mississippi River and its tributaries is scheduled for June 15 unless negotiations between the CIO National Maritime Union and the three major carriers arc concluded successfully. Thc .strike, if called, would cause a complete paralysis of river shipping. The carriers are the Fed- Barge Lines, owned and operated by the government, the Misiissippi Valley Barge Lines and the American Barge Lines. Ivan A. Shaw, NMU representative here, said thc carriers have been notified of the deadline for the wage talks. The union, he said, is asking a flat S30 a month raise for unlicensed personnel and a ?50 a month increase for licensed personnel, along with a 20 cents an hour increase in overtime wage rates. Shaw said the carriers have made only one counter-offer of a $10 a month raise for all barge workers. Tlic negotiations arc being conducted in St. Louis where the Federal and Mississippi Valley have Ihcir headquarters. Head office of the American is at Louisville, Ky.

U.S.Collects Levy For Miners' Fund Lewis Binds Latest Victory With Okay From WSB and Truman By RAYMOND I.AIIR United Tress Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, June 1. (UP) — The government today began collecting five cent.-; a ton on all new- mined soft coal for a health and welfare fund granted 400.000 members of the United Mine Workers (API,). The government will turn over the first installment of an estimated $25,000.000 annually on Aug. 15 under Ihe contract signed last Wednesday with UMW President John L. Lewis. This payment'wlll cover Ihe June 1-July 15 period and will be made .to a board of''thfei trustees to :bc* chosen jointly by Lewis and the government as operator of the seized mines. The last legal obstacle lo operation of thc fund was clearctl away last night by President Trumnn and thc Wage Stabilization Board. The WSB formally advised Mr. Truman that it found the new contract "clearly within" national stabilization policy. The President thereupon'gave his appro.val under.the War Labor DJs- putesilaw which'require presidential actioil:pii : any cltnitkes in wages and worklHg 'co'nditioW, in plants or mines seized by the government. Everything Now Okay The WSB gave special attention to the health and welfare fund. "Tlie plan is consistent with the practice which has been developing throughout substantial,segments of American industry," WSB Chairman W. Willard Wirlz said in a statement. "Tiic terms governing the administration of the fund are in accordance with the standards recognized by the board in prcviou cases." Wirtz said also thai the plan does not violale Ihc stabilization net of 1942. That act, he pointed out, "specifically contemplated the creation of such plans and excluded from statutoiy wage control those found to be reasonable. Most informed sources believed thc fund also was legal under lhc Case lal»r bill passed by Congress and now before Mr. Truman. The act only prohibits employer-paid welfare funds thai are wholly union-administered. The WSB gave unanimous approval to thc 18'.i cents an hour wage increase provided by the contrast. In addition to thc general wige increase and Ihe health and welfare fund, thc agreement provides $100 annual vacation payment to each miner, improved safety regulations,' unionization of supervisory employes and compulsory protection and coverage of miners under workmen's compensation and oc- cupalional disease Inws. Fuel Administrator J. A. Krug told a news conference yesterday Uiat he had received no protests from operators on thc contract's provisions. He predicted lhat a majority of thc operators will accept the government-negotiated contract without change when the mines arc turned back to them.

Accoidlng lo industry reports, however, many farmers alarmed at thc prospect of feed shortages again next year have planted record oats and corn crops.
