BlytheTlUe Courier AND SOUTHEAST IUB0OURI BlytheviUe HermJd Mississippi Valley Maritime Strike Still Hinges On Working Hours Settlement Hopes High With Deadline Due Friday Night WASHINGTON, June 12. (U.P.) —Joseph Curran. president of the National Maritime Union (CIO), told Congress today there will be "a long and bitter'* shipping strike unless the issue of working hours Is settled. "We're not kidding ourselves about, that," he lold a House Labor subcommittee investigating maritime labor troubles. Curran marie his statement as the government increased pressure on union and shipping negotiators to reach an early settlement. Sources close to the negotiations predicted .flatly that a strike will be averted. Six CIO maritime unions and one independent threatened to call a nationwide shipping strike at midnight Friday unless tlielr demands for shorter working hours and higher wages were met. Negotiations have been snagged on the issue of shorter working hours. Tlie unions originally demanded a 40-hour week, but have receded to 44. The present work week is 56 hours. Curran described as "a lit of propaganda" arguments of thc W a ship owners than anything less I .,„' than a 53-hour week is impossible. He said it would be possible by adding "a few" men. Navy Ready to Act Thc government plans to man the merchant fleet with Navy and Coast Guard personnel if thcstUkc materializes. Curran was asked if the unions would prefer to have the government operate the ships with union seamen staying on the job. "Under present conditions—no," he replied. "If the government is going to be the 'same mean employer, I would strike." Sources close to thc negotiating sessions predicted flatly that the Friday midnight strike of 200.000 CIO and Independent seamen will be averted. Chairman Augustine B. Kellcy.

United 1' Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. Juno 12.—Hollth- ern Democratic representatives laid plans today to revive CHSC bill provisions In a modified form before Ihe end of this session of Congress. Led by Rep. E. E. Cos, D., Ga.. they canvassed the House for sentiment to get around President Truman's veto of the measure. They failed to get the House lo override the veto yesterday. The vote was 255 to 135 to override the President, but this was five votes short of Ihc necessary two-thirds majority. The vehicle for the new Southern Democratic drive is the President's emergency strike control legislation now before the rules committee. They believe they can count, on a ninc-to-thrcc vote in the rules committee to authorize adding the Case bill as a rider to the emergency legislation. Should they be successful, and Congress passes the merged measure, they think the President would sign it. Only Temporary Solution This maneuver would turn tho Case bill, originally approved as :\ permanent strike control measure labor."- subcommittee investigating ,.the.

He noted that the Maritime Commission and the War Slipping Administration have "absolute" authority to set hours and wages under government contract. Construction Firm Organized Father-Son Seabec Combination Carried Into Business Field the son Dack home from service in armed forces, a father and have entered business here. S. J. Cohen, oldest volunteer in Mississippi County for World War II, and his son, Jerry, who have established a construction firm to be known as "Can Do Construction Company," are believed to be the only father and son in Mississippi County who both served in the war. To specialize in heavy concrete construction and foundations, the company also will build levees and drainage canals and has smaller equipment to take care ' of local needs, it was pointed out. Taking (he name from the "Can Do" slogan of the Seabccs, known as Ihe "Can IX)" boys, the Navy father and son have established an office in the Lynch Biillditv, where the elder Mr. Cohen had an office a number of years ago. • The elder Mr. Cohen, called "Jimmie", sold his equipment and joined the Scabces in 1942.

The increase compares with a two per cent boost registered by ihc bureau durinf; 1943. On c official described the whole price picture as "alurming." "It's lime we stopped talking about inflation as if it were around the corner," he said. "To all intents and purposes, inflation is here." Rent Goes Up, Too He explained that price increases on milk, butter an<i cheese have boosted living costs 8-10 of 1 per cent. The bread price increase, he estimated. will boost it another 1-4 of 1 per cent. This will mean, he said, that the , cost of -living will be close to 33 "per cent higher [hah in 1939. BLS officials said that rent costs in March went up "slightly" fov the first time sinrp Deiijmbcr, 1944. They added that'nien's cloth- cial end of the war emergency. But ing prices, the Southern Democrats believe that would be better than nothing. Principal stumbling block to this plan at the moment is the apathy of the Republican side of the House. Republican leaders expressed tin: opinion that it would be better for their party to remain silent on the matter and leave the responsibility up to the Democrats. Despite the outward Indifference of the Republicans to the rider tactic, the Southern group was confident that they would vote for it in any showdown on the House floor. But they were worried over the absence of active support. Members of the Cox group pointed out that the President's veto was sustained in the House yesterday by only five votes. If another test, of strength could be made, they bc- llevc they might win. Rep. Vlto' Marcalitonlo. A-L. • N.

(U.P.)— Giiitri-os.s waH s |i y j, u , away today from an investigation of the Supremo Court where the late 1'rcsident Roosevelt's appointees have been biokoniiK for months like a snmp of precinct politicians But there is pressure for Inquiry 1 Info court procedures. Tftjer Cahinct Meets Both monarchist and republican flags flew In Rome. Nobody knew whether Ihe sovereign power remixed yearlings ' maincd legally with thc king or had been transferred to DC Gaspcri. a temporary chief of state in tho nei republic. The Italian cabinet was called to another meeting today, after four inconclusive sessions yesterday. Humbert, ill with a fever, remained stubbornly In the royal palace. He refused to accept the nation's ;lcc loral verdict ousting the monarchy until thc supreme court rules oil monarchist charges of election Irregularities. Renewed monarchist riots canned certainly thai i|, c public break between associate Justices Hugo Black and Robert II. Jackson will be discussed In House mid Semite speeches. i The Washington consensus Is that Jackson's charges against Blnck published yesterday from Nuernberg, Germany, raised no issues warranting Impeachment. Thc complaint was that Black used bad Judgment in failing to disqualify himself from consideration of a mine-wage case in which thc miners wer c represented by his former law partner. Thc miners v;on with Black's vote and would have won without it: Chairman-Pat McCarran, D., IVii., of thc Senate Judiciary Committee, apparently is delormlncd to prevent Intrusion of the Ulack- Johnson feud into consideration ol President Truman's nomination ol Secretary, of Treasury Fred M. Vinson to be chief Justice. Vinson would succeed Ihu late Hnrlnn P. Stone. A judiciary sub-committee will consider Vinson's nomination Friday. A favorable report and confirmation ate assured. But the action will offer an occasion for discussion of tlie situation which has developed in a court for which FDR. wad'peculiarly responsible. Rep. Francis E. Walter, D.. Pa., a House Judiciary Committee member, said Jackson had miarte a "serious charge" a urt that it should receive full committee consideration. Other members of the House committee indicated, however, that ally Investigation will be held up until Jackson returns to the United States. Every member of th c present court is a Roosevelt appointee except. Associat c Justice Harold U'lr- ton, a Truman appointee. But before the death and retirement began eliminating thc so-called "nine old men" who comprised the court when Roosevelt took office, thc late President became aggressively bitter against thc high bench. His New Deal legislation repeatedly was declared unconstitutional. On Feb. 5, 1937, Roosevelt proposed hts supreme court rcorgan- izalion plan. Thc proposal caused a dispute which all but wrecked the democratic party and cmlcd in thc President's humiliation and defeat. He triumphed in the end by his power of appointment. Roosevelt's first choice was Black, then a new deal senator from Alabama with modest legal background but bitterly partisan instincts. Thc nomination was offensive to many opponent^ of tlie new deal jiid there is reason to believe thc President knew and hugely enjoyed that fact. His smile faded, however, when it was shown that ni.ick in his early political career had been a member of thc Ku Klux Klan. Jackson's blast from Nuernberg spread some of the story on 'he 2 Men Arrested Following Attack Missouri Officers Investigate Fight At Hermondalc An alleged attack upon two men Thursday night at the Arkansus- Mlssouri state line resulted In arrest here yesterday of Mark Campbell, 24, and Carlcc Davidson, 2!) both of Blythevillc, on charges ol assault.- Leonard Mayo, SO, and Hcrshel "Slats" Thompson, 20. were injured In the attack which took place In the driveway of Rlmpson Service Station, at Hermondalc.
