(AP)—A threatened showdown in New York's waterfront strike failed to develop today and miles and miles of docks remained closed tight after mornins: work whistles blew. Reinforced lines of pickets marched in front of 'many piers. Announced plans of AFLi long-* shore boss Joseph Ryan to send men "through or over" pickets didn't materialize. Police, anticipating a possible violent climax to the la-day dock strike, increased waterfront patrols to about 400 men along the Manhattan docks alone. But as the morning advanced, the docks remained quiet while pickets" shivering in a chill wind, ploded to and fro.

Sampson said he would urge the men to return to work if Mr. Truman acted, but the wildcat leader maintained his opposition to the new work contract between the ILA and stevedore employers.
