TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1951 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Longshoremen's Motor Caravans Strangle Ports Army, Civilian Goods Piled High as New York Docks Idle NEW YORK, Oct. 23. (AP)-Motor caravans of striking rebel lon<>- •horemen roved the waterfront today, tightening their stranglehold that has paralyzed more than 30 miles of docks in the vast port of New York. With tons of Army material and civilian goods piled high on the idle piers, the strikers were almost in complete control of the world's largest harbor. To prevent a higher pile-up, the American Association of Railroads has embargoed most freight consigned here for export anci for coastal shipping. Wi(h the strike already spread to Boston, the Association said a similar embargo on freight to that port would he ordered today. About 200 Boston longshoremen quit work yesterday, apparently sympathy with the New York wildcatters, who are demanding reopening of a wage contract recently negotiated by, the APL International Longshoremen's Association. At one of the few piers In the New York harbor area still working about 150 longshoremen ignored Hie ^leas of strike pickets and began unloading mail and passenger baggage from the French Line's He De France. At the Cunard Line's North River pier the liner Queen Mary prepared to sail. White collar workers, some wearing white gloves and with near white handkerchiefs peeking Irom their pockets, helped load passenger baggage. A temporary strike truce was declared at the New York Port ot Embarkation on Staten Island to permit the loading of three Arms troop ships, As the rebel walkout threatened to erupt along the Atlantic coast harassed union leaders were summoned to an emergency meeting today by their president, John P, Ryan. Ryan, head of the AFL International Longshoremen's Association zaid the session would be attended by executive committee members o] the union's Atlantic district. There were reports that the ILA leaders would bow to the demands of the wildcat strikers and ask to ^ reopen contract talks with shipping and stevedoring firms. Federal mediators hinted at thi: possibility last night as they announced that the wildcatters hac agreed to hold off further efforts to spread the strike until after the ILA meeting. All but one or two piers in the two-state harbor were tied up las night by the strikers, all dissident members of the TLA. Their action, now nine days old has pyramided from a local walkout in Manhattan's Chelsea distric into the most paralyzing tie-up here in years. It also spread to some docks in Boston yesterday and brought threats of work stoppages in Philadelphia ana Baltimore.

EGYPTIAN (Continued from Page 1) meant by a "severe accounting." Possible actions ranged from the Holy War some Egyptians have been demanding to a charge before the United Nations. 'Studied All Possibilities' "We have studied nil possibilities and all aspects of the situation so that we may reach our aim without enabling the enemy and usurper to dominate us," rfahas Pasha said. "The enemy has lost his head and committed aggressive attacks about which he u-ill not keep silent artf we are about to bring him to a severe accounting." Egypt's "aim" to which he referred is to oust the British entirely from Egypt and to take full control of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. The alliance, signed in 1936, permitted British troops to guard the Canal, and in an 1899 treaty agreed on joint control of the Sudan.
