FA«E TWO BLYTrTBVTLLB, (ARK;) COURIER Lewis Could Start New Pay Demands by Phone MONPAT. DECEMBER lt, v Streamlined Procedure Set For Coal Miners ;WA8KINOTON. Dec. 11, <*)—If h« (Mb like It, John L. Lewis has only to pick up his telephone to tttrl a movement for * /if(h round wage increase for his coal miners. He has given no Indication of any plan to move before next spring, but h« Mjdom Uj* his hand In advance. Tn« Industry h now so organized that I_«wU need only call Harry M. Mows, official spokesman for most of the commercial and steel companies' mines In northern and western fields.'or Joseph E. Moody, head of the southern group. Both have offices abont 100 yards from Lewis' United Mine Workers head-! 'quarters, ! The contracts covering most o( 'the nation 3 hard nnd soft coal dit>.| gers don't expire until April I. 1051. However, (here is no bar to voluntary wage Increases if the operators agree to them before controls are slapped on prices and wages. Most operators believe that since Lewis usually puts great emphasis on his contracts, he Is more Ukely to ask for a voluntary concession than to kick over the traces. Tlie mine owners themselves insisted mi a one-year reopening clause In the contract thev signed lasi sprliir They say Lewis would have agreed to s contract closed for two years Procedure Streamlined Whenever Lewis decides to move the fact he ha.i only to deal with Moses and Moody—at least until a bargain Is virtually made—greatly streamlines the procedure. Once he .had lo deal with several regional committees In 1915 and early 1946, the opera- tors had one nation-wide committee: That dldn'l last, largely became the southern coal operate! wanted to do their own negotiating. Most of the balance of the Industry then got together In an nssodu. tlon with Moses at the head. He now speaks for about 150.000.000 tons of soft coal production, including ill that of the "captive" mines of steel companies. Th«l 1, 01 ,,. third of the coal dug by Lewis' . No Surprise In Store Some operators and other man nwmont officials say ihey would not be surprised If Lewis waited until government controls are fixed on prices and wages before he seeks a wage boost. That |» bated on a theory that he would like to attack a controls system with which ne might not be (n sympathy. Not all operators believe that Some say that Lewis would rather abide by the rules In an emergency even though he did not follow the example of other labor leaders who gave a no-strike pledge in World War II.
