Blytbevilfc Dally New* BlythcvUl* Courier Blythevffi* Herald Uiulolppi Valley Leader old coal strike. •Lewis strode into the meeting accompanied by Vice President Thomas Kennedy and Secretary- Treasurer John Owens of the United Mine Workers. The miners were the last to ar: rive. Lewis, with his hat brim hiding his famous eyebrows, said nothing to reporters as he joined the conference behind closed doors. . The coal operators, appearing somewhat more cheerful, joined Ching and his. associates without any comment, either. AMisting Ching were General Counsel Peter Seitz and Associate Director William N. Margolis, his ace aides. Conciliators privately expressed the opinion that the initial session would be exploratory and might take up considerable time. Tlie prospects for coaxing a strike settlement out of the operators and Lewis looked poor. Steel Talks Planned Later Negotiations for a new. coal contract were recessed indefinitely at White Sulphur Springs and Bluefield, W.Va., so the government could bring the interested parties together here. Ching would not predict whether, JL, In the event his own efforts failed, W President Truman might follow through under the Tall-Hartley act emergency procedure and appoint a board of inquiry leading to an Injunction. Aside frjm Chlng's surprise Invitation to the coal operators and Lewis, the government gave little outward sign of anxiety over either the 19-day coal strike or the shutdown of the nation's basic steel mills by Philip Murray's CIO Steelworkers. •:.: Ching turned his attention from jteel to coil this week, but was expected to call for talks next week - f'" led *.' halting the- steel strike, Rail Conference Kesunies '*"" ST LOUIS, Oct 7. lif, - weary officials of eight of -the 11 states affected by the Missouri Pacific strike went back into conference today, jusl» a little less confident they could end the walkout , Th *y »"e optimistic when the meeting opened yesterday.
