f, PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS BLUEPIELD, W. Vs., Sept. Wv-Southern coal operators were faced today with jolm k. Lewis' pay-up-or-else demand Tor miner welfare fund royalties. Presumably Lewis wants a def- Jnlte reply by the time the operator* and United Mine Workers representatives sit down here late today (3 pjn. EST) for another round of contract talks. The UMW chief virtually threatened to call a strike against the southern owners who have been withholding the 20-cent-per ton welfare payments on all coal dug. "Will you or will you not remit?" h« wrote. Lewis said «. continuation of the "default" may lead to "reactions different to the constructive progress of the industry." To observers, that meant a strike threat. Southern operators have met here periodically since May to discuss a new contract with Lewis 1 mine workers. Northern and western operators started meeting with the union at White Sulphur Springs in June. The numerous sessions have all ended with not decision. The soft coal contracts expired June 30, although the north-west group contended they had a contract to August 14 because Le w i s did not give them notice on negotiations until June 14. Lewis has not made known his new contract demands In dctnil. Meanwhile, miners east of the Mississippi have been working three days a week. This was a .sharp departure from the former "no contract, no work" policy of the union. The old contract called for the welfare fund payments while contract negotiations were in progress. However, an undisclosed number, of southern operators came up with a policy of [heir own—"no contract, . no welfare payments." Lewis indicated in Washington that he will not attend today's session here but will leave the bargaining to a team headed by John Ownes, UMW secretary-treasurer. Northern and western operators representing about 300,000.000 tons | of annual soft coal production will i resume contract talks with the j union tomorrow at White Sulphur Springs. Comparatively few. If any, in that froup have withheld the royalty i payments.

Shelton of Blytheville. narrowly escaped serious injury tills morning vhen the panel truck he was driving left Highway 18 aiul overturned several times Into a deep roadside ditch two miles west CHEMICAL Continued Prom Pal* On* eliminated thon malfunctions which caused stoppage] tills year. In Inspecting the test plots, Mr. Peek iliowed those present cotton which had been given every ccn- clevable treatment, with the application. Ill some plots the cotton was given many times more application* of No-Ho than would be needed. "We wanted to see just how much we could put on the cotton without killing it," Mr. Peek said. One row was sprayed ten times with about 35 per cent more of the chemical than would ordinarily be needed. Normally the row would need only three spray Ingi. Although plant Injury was »p- parcnt In this ro», the cotton generally withstood lh« test without, disastrous effects. To make the experimental plots a genuine test of the product, grass \vas planted In ihe cotton and soybeans and check rows were left uncultivated to show normal grass and weed growth. Four-yrar Effort Mr. White first started, experimenting with tiie chemical compound for killins weeds and grass about four years ago, Since that time, he has changed the formula oil tbe basis of tests. The compound is currently beicig made by Agricultural Chemicals, Ilncorjiorated, of Memphis. During the pail year, ihe plan has operated on an experimental permit from the Department of Agriculture. Unlimited quantities of tiie product will not be sold until | full results of this year', tests have been rcceiied an analyzed. Although some farmers harbor a "show-me" attitude, one who used It during the past year substantiated reports that the weed killer was meeting with success in its current trial when he said, "I'll use as much of it as I possibly can next year." Mr. White said reports from farmers over the mid-south who used the compound during the past year 'Tanged all the w r ay from just luke-wanr. to hugely successful. I don't cliim we have something that's perfect, but on the basis of the tests, there's hardly any doubt tha; the product promises to develop into something which can recall cheaper, more j expedient coucn production." of Blytheville. ~ Mr. Sheltoii was treated for shoulder and back injuries following the accident. i According to W. T. Shellon, Bly- thcville contractor, brother of J. C. Shellon and owner of the truck! the truck was forced off the roaii I onto the shoulder by an approach- I ins; truck.
