The antagonists in the dispute are resolute. Bertram Powers, «, with brush- rapped, blond-gray hair, the resident of Local «, 'aays "We're i this thing all the way."

For a decade DOW. in New York tie ITU has found itself .treadini he footsteps of a union it helpc: wing into being in the 1930s. 11T men had told reporters, cltrica workers and other noncraft work rs that they would have to organ- ue if they hoped to get the kind o money and contract protections TU men enjoyed. They took the advice and ormed the Guild. But in the earl. 950s, in part because of an ace: dent of the calendar. Guild rathe ban ITU contracts began to te the industry pattern. The ITU, dating to the middle o the last century, grew restive. Votes on ratifying what ITU men termed carbon copy agreements melted until.they were razor thin.

When Iht Guild agrwd last month to a package increase of about fg-t) per week per man over two years, and returned jom a one-paper strike, the ITU warned it wouldn't be bound this time by that KtUement. When the clock ran out on negotiations, the ITU wai asking $18.45 weekly in wage increases over the two years plus other benefits the publishers say would cost another $19 or more.

Unless rcon- y can be freed by such cost- utting methods, these publishers cay, there will be none to spread xit as wage boosts. Competition rom other media blocks higher dvertising rates, they say. And Bradford says that the TU's printers have made fewer advances in output per manhour lian any of the other nine unions n the Times. If the ITU leadership and philosophy are embraced across the na- km. publishers contend, many weak newspapers may be pushed nlo bankruptcy. Powers, who lost a linotype job when the newspaper PM closed in he late 1940s, says he and his membership faced this possibility when they made their strike deci- lion, In any case, he said, "We can't :ake the position of being a part- Mr to the sick papers and the antagonist to the rich ones." 8.4 Pet.
