Union and A. T. & T. representatives came here yesterday for conferences with conciliators of the federal mediation services in an effort to reach an agreement. Moran said actions of the A.

(&)— The three railroad brotherhoods which called off their threatened nation-wide strike Monday night will run the % trains as long as the government has control of the railroads. But the minute the lines are turned back to the carriers, whether in two weeks or two years, they'll call another strike unless an agreement is reached meanwhile in their wage-rules dispute. That was the word today from one of the top brotherhood men. He talked to a reporter on condi- tion his name would not be disclosed. This officer said the unions ex- pc-ct thr temporary restraining order against the engineers, firemen and switchmen to be. made permanent by Federal Judge T. Alan Golclsborough after a hearing next week. This would prevent the unions from striking as long as the government has control. But the union leader said, the three brotherhoods still consider as fair and proper their demands for a 30 percent wage increase and 23 changes in working rules.
