There had been earlier reports*— lhat the rail union had offered new proposals designed to bring peace with Ihe four struck carriers. But Chairman Francis O'Neill, Jr., of the National (Railway) Mediation Board apparently squelched Hie report. After a meeting last night with representatives of the four big railroads Involved in tlie strike, lie said. "They're just as deadlocked now us they were at. the start of the strike • Wednesday morning." O'Neill said there had been no new offer by David B. Robertson, president of Ihe striking Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen. Number of Jobless .lumps As peace efforl.s apparently hit a snag, the number of jobless mounted (o nearly 200,000. At the same time, a railroad spokesman In Las Angeles said the firemen are (o strike against a fifth railroad— Ihe Union Pacific's Los Angeles to Salt Lake City run. There was no immedaitc confir- natioii of the report by brotherhood officials in Chicago. A union official in Cleveland said he had not beard of the proposed walkout. W. T.

The proposal, he -aid. could be the "break" that might end the walkout of Ihe 18.000 firemen on parts of the New York Central, the Penssylvania, nnd all of the Santa Pe. and ihe Southern Railway. After last night's meeting with the mediation board, he refused to confirm or deny lhat a union offer had been made, A union spokesman said he did not know of any offer made by the brotherhood. Extending Slrlke In Ihe midst of the reported peace offers, Robertson announced the union was extending the strike against the St. Louis and the Ap- palacla Divisions of the Southern Railway. The two divisions had not been included in the original strike call. There also were new reports of minor violence on the strikebound New York Central Lines—at Elkhart. Ind.. and Cleveland. O'Neill said the board members would remain In Chicago, ready to meet with the carilers and union representatives at any time In attempt to settle the dispute. The chief issue is the union's demand for a second fireman on multiple unit Diesel locomotives. Meanwhile, the number of joble s on the struck lines mounted. Thousands of other workers in industry were threatened with idleness if the walkout continues A long strike also threatened a serious disruption of the country's business.

(API—The CIO Transport Workers Union struck today against Pan American World Airway.;, threatening a sharp cut In the huge airline's Mi7hUs from the United States. There was on Immediate curtailment of service, however. Last minute mediation efforts continued an hour and 45 minutes past the strike deadline, but collapsed at 12:45 a.m. (EST). No new meetings were scheduled. The strikers walked off their Jobs al Ihe airline's far-flung American base.* as it turned midnight (local time). The principal Issue was wages. Although only 800 stewards, stewardesses and pursers actually struck, the same union's other 4,- CSO maintenance men In the Pan American system were pledged to honor Ihelr picket lines In a move lo give (he strikers a stranglehold. reports from both union and company showed "100 per cent" compliance by the union membership.

"They will not write this bill on the Senate floor if God will give me the strength to speak," declared Senator Olin D. Johnston ID-SCI. Senator Kilender (D-Lat went further, tn a radio Iranjcription to his constituents in Louisiana last night Ellcnder recalled that a similar bill was killed last year "by filibuster." he promised performance. South Was Shy Until yesterday Southerners had been shy about even mentioning the lerm "filibuster." although FEPC has been pending for n full week. During that time the measure's Dixie opponents have been able to sit bach while Lucas struggled vainly to keep the Senate on (he subject of PKPC. Debate turned instead lo Presidential reorganization plans. communism - In - government, and politics. The question before the .Senate Is Lucas' motion to take up the controversial Civil Rights bill, tf Southerners try lo prevent action on that motion by filibustering. It will take the votes of 54 senators to limit debate.
