Conciliators said the 10-day strike against Wcstinghouse Electric may continue for a year. The United Mine Workers (APL) were threatening a walkout in bituminous coa fields, and thc International Harvester strike continued. Baruch, a former Wall Street executive and adviser to Presidents. told the House Banking Committee that work stoppages must be prevented so production can reach Ihe level necessary to avoid inflation. Baruch said the IS'.-j-cent-an-hour wage increase is a "grave break" in thc stabilization front and warned that prices must go up with wages. If management and lalior cannot agree to halt strikes for a year, then it must be done by lav. 1 , he said. Issues Being Settled In the General Motors strike, additional settlements were reached at local plants aiid company sources hoped that the 175,000 striking members of the CIO United Automobile Workers would return 10 their jobs within a few days. At La Grange, 111., 7,600 production workers of thc Gtyl electro-motive division voted overwhelmingly to end Iheir walkout with settlement of local issues. At South Gate. Calif. 1.100 production workers voted by 7 to 1 to accept settlement of local . issues. ' ' President R. J. Thomas of the UAW charged al the union's convention in Atlantic City that Walter P.

Apparently none of them believed that a walkout, scheduled to begin next Sunday, could be avoided Some believed that the strike would last 30 lo 60 days. Supply Available Industry sources estimated the nation had a 30-day supply of coal above ground, and believed that it short strike would have little ef- Northern Lights Play About Sky Saturday Night Those vivid streaks of red which flame<i in the sky Saturday night was not the world "coming to an end," as might be believed, but wer c the northern lights, a strange sight seldom seen in this section. The correct name for "northern lights" is aurora borcalis, which means a luminous phenomenon. visible only at night and supposed to be of electrical origin. Tills light usually appears in streamers ascending, oflen in a fan shape, from n dusky line or bank a fe\v degrees above the northern horizon; when reaching south beyond the zenith, it forms what is called the corona, about a spot in the heavens toward which the dipping needle point. On very rare occasions the aurora appears an an arch of light across Ihe heavens from east to west, as It partially did Saturday. Sometimes it assumes a waving appearance and the streams of light are then called "merry dancers" Sometimes they assume a variety of colors, from pale red or yellow to deep red or blood color. The corona of this phenomenon is calle "auroral glory." Those who first noticed thc phenomenon said it started with a white streak like a rainbow along io^'miiiy" the horizon; then it rose to what . seemed a 10-dcgree angle and took O'PiaaJ Democrats From South Are Cool To Truman Plea Say Loyalty To Party Will Not Influence Vote On 'Must' Bills BY DEAN W. D1TTMKR United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Mar. 25. (UP)— President Truman's appeal for unity among congressional Democrats got a generally cool reception today among rebellious party members from the south. The southerners, who have teamed up with Republicans to defeat or modify many of Mr. Truman's "must" bills, made It plain they would back administration legislation only when it met with their approval and not solely on grounds of party loyalty.

Operators were reported unable to agree on a proposal. Some were in favor of a basic wage increase i( the work week is shortened in accordance with the union's request. In the Wcslinghouse dispute it was learned that Edgar L.

Report Is Awaited The next step toward settlement probably will lie delayed unlil n report has been received from William H. Davis and Arthur S.

The union has demanded a wage increase of 18',4 cents hourly granted by General Electric and General Motors electrical division. The company has olTereri 15.9 ccnls. In the Harvester dispute, sentatives of both the company and the CIO United Farm Equipment workers will attend a meeting with Warren at Washington Tuesday..The disputants have agreed on an 18- cent hourly wage raise, but have failed to reach a settlement of o',hei issues.

Mill and Smelter Workers already were on strike, am additional walkouts hnvo bcei threatened, - ling for expulsion from the Democratic party of those who bolt the leadership on major issues—a move aimed at a group of southern Democrats who frcciuenUy vote with th e Republicans in opposing administration measures. Gov. Ben Laney also took a mild swing at administralion policies. Evidently taking cognizance of early rumors of a break between the national and state party leaders, thc governor pointed out that Arkansas Democrats nlwnys have heen loyal to the party. But he added, "We are tired of being forced to stand aside when a political plum is being plucked." Thc War Assets Corporation also came in for its share of name calling. Slate Education Department and American Legion officials told the visiting congressmen that the dis- ribution of surplus property in he state is hopelessly bogged down in burea'f;ralic red tape. The rumors concerned the distribution of proceeds from thc dinner and the question of vvhe- ,hcr or not there exist* a break bc- -wccn the national and state democratic party. Such rumors. however, were squelched when Laney announced lhal Arkansas Democrat.'; will not secede from Ihe nalional parly. He further emphasized his point Saturday evening when he said that Ihe proceeds from the banquet— about $8000—will go to Ihe national party treasury as usual. All three Jackson Day speakers took thc opportunity to call for party unity, and Sen. J.

The southerners noted that Mr. Truman had avoided any such iroporal and that Wallace himself nad not repealed It at the Jackson Day gathering. Wallace never- hcless did criticize Democrats who rejected administration bills with regularity. .Th c Democratic party, he said. .iad been "done great harm" by .hose who wrap themselves with Ihe traditions of Jefferson and Jackson but whose actions belie [heir pretensioivs." Regarding Wallace's remarks, 'ox said: "Wallace is a newcomer to the Democratic party, and to those Democrats who kept thc parly alive during Us day of adversity, his words don't carry much weight." Mr. Truman appealed not only lo Southern Damocrats but lo Republicans to bade his reconversion program in the interests of a "strong and progressive" America "The solution of the tremendous social problems of our day should not be a partisan affairs." he said "no one class, group, or parly cai hope to solve all the complicate* problems facing America.

"But there can ue no home anywhere for tin. united Nations unless thc United Nations remain united and continue to work together, as Ihcy have fought together, for peace and for freedom," MI-. Truman said. Byrnes' address was delivered in the Council's Interim chamber- he converted gymnasium of Huntr College—before other members »f the ll-natlon council, and rcp- esenlalivcs of other united im- lons, and distinguished guests. Thc Council began what will be i "continuous session" in Its new lome while delegates awaited official confirmation of radio Moscow's report that the critical so- 'iet-Iranian dispute over Russian roops in Iran has been settled by nil agreement and that the troops already are going home.

But there was iiope today, where there had been pessimism last week, but that thc Soviet-Iranian agreement would turn out to be an lionosl, bona fide one on which the Council can stamp It-s approval. Obviously referring to such cases as the Soviet-Iranian one, Byrnes rclteralcd for Ihe Ihlrd tie in three weeks lhal Ihe United Nations Charter "does not sanctify ancient privilege."
