Gall, attorney for the southern coal producers association said today that a "substantial number of coal companies wlthekl the 20-cent miners' welfare royalty payments due Aug. 20. Neither John L. Lewis nor Miss Josephine Roche, director of the tlOO.OOO,000-a-year fund for the welfare and retirement of coal miners, would confirm any "revolt" on the part of coal operators In making the monthly collection payments. Lewis called a meeting of the trustees of the fund this week, but had nothing to say about the pur- nose ol the session, in addition to Lewis, head of the United Mine Workers, the trustees are Ezra Van Horn, for the operators, and Senator Bridges (H-NH). Lewis abandoned the miners' long standing "no contract, no work" policy on June 30. Imposing' a three- day work week Ideflnltely while he negotiates a new contract with the industry. Northern and Western coal operators had argued that their contract continued until Aug. 14 because of the Taft-Harlley requirement that 60 days' notice must be given before an agreement Is terminated. Lewis asked for negotiation meetings on June 14 with the North an ( [ West. Take Inif-tUe The Southern operators, on the other hand, had taken the Initiative in April. They held no doubts that tiieir contract expires June 30. the date provided in the agreement Itself. The welfare fund royalty of 20 cents a ton is in the contract. Leading representatives of the Southern Coal Producers Association, as well as Gall, said that many companies were withholding the July payments, due on Aug 20 but refused to estimate the extent of the movement. Some said it was no general action by the association, but attorneys through^ the South were known to have advised clients that since J.uue 30 they were under no les»l obligation to pay the royalty. Oal| said many operators were finding it impossible to pass along the 20-cent levy to customers, because of. weakening demand. A showdown between Lewis and the non-paying operators Is almost certain to erupt when negotiations resume with the Southern Coal Producers Association at Bluefield, W. V.a, on Sept. M. Contract talks between Lewis and representatives of the steel company-owner mines and Northern and Western bituminous coal producers will resume at White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., on Sept. IS.
