TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1949 BIATIIEVTLLF, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREH Mo-Pac Workers To Strike Friday Company Head Calls It 'Most Unjustifiable' In Railroad History ST. LOUIS, Sept. 6. I.K't— Operating employes of the Missouri Pad- lie Railroad have called a strike tor 2 p.m. Friday. The announcement was made yesterday by P. J. Netf who termed it. -one or the most unjustifiable strikes in American railroad history." Neff is the line's chief executive officer. About 5,000 workers will walk out But NefJ estimated that between 15.000 and 25,000 employes will be out of work as a result. Neff said the oft-threatened strike .lias been called because the rail- giroad will not agree to terms dictated by four train service brotherhoods for settlement of claims which originated during the recent war. "These claims principally concerned which employes should have been used for services during this period and, in a general way, involve the interpretations of the working rules between tile carrier and its employes," Heff said. To Hurt Many Industries "The Railway La'bor Act provides a peaceful way for the settlement of such disputes but the employes have refused to submit their claims to the tribunals provided for in this act." Siispension of service on the Missouri Pacific will hit hard at many Industries and territories served by the line in 11 states. m The strike will force dlscmitin- uance of through service with the railroad's Southern lines, the International-Great Northern and the Gull Coast lines. A strike vote was taken last Dec. 15 and a walkout was scheduled for early In July. This was averted, however, when President Trmnan Appointed an emergency board to investigate the case. The board made a report of find- Ings in August. Neff charged that the four brotherhoods Involved refused to follow the board's recommendations.

(/Pi— (TJSDA)— Hogs 14,500; WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. m— Britain took the lead yesterday in I a move to keep the American, British and Canadian people posted on progress of the critical bilks here this week on Britain's doll'ir crisis. Official sources said tha'. Sir Oliver Franks, the British ambassador, was ready to propose that detailed daily reports be given reporters on what takes place in the urgent closed door sessions which -open tomorrow at the State Department. The system of daily briefings has been followed at meetings of the Hig Four Council of Foreign Ministers. Top level international postwar financial conferences have in practice been more secretive. This problem of publicity is among the first which must be decided by the cabinet ministers of the three nations — Secretary of State Acheson and Treasury Secretary Siiyder. British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin and Sir Stafford Cripps, chancellor of the exchequer, and Canada's Lester B. Pearson and Douglas C. Abbott. The conference is tied In with the 'whole policy of strengthening the Western free world to keep Communism hi check. Decisions will have a vital bearing on reducing British dollar drain and bolstering her position. American officials hope that some effec- conference. The British proposal is to hav officials of the three powers alter irate in giving the briefings. At th Big Four Council of Foreign Min Istcrs sessions, the practice ha been for separate briefings fron each of I lie powers. Ii 1 . this case, the argument is tha all three countries taking part 111 close friends and one spokesma could serve for all, whereas th practice was not feasible at meet ings attended by Russian rcprcsen tativcs.
