' PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THl NATION TODAY— x President Has No Legal Power To Forbid Coal Strike Renewal But Could Delay it for 140 Days '- . . .' By James Martow - WASHINGTON, Nov. 17. (if)— President Truman may move today to prevent a coal strike Deo. 1. He has ho legal power to forbid a strike altogether. At best, he can only delay it. But, using what power he has, he*- - •_ —. _ mtght' be able to delay the strike 80 days or even 140 days. That would carry the country through the worst winter months with a supply ol coal. On Nov. 9, when John L. Lewis called hU miners back to (lie pits after a 52-day lay-off, he said it would be until Dec. 1. After that date he may pull them out. again unless: . " 1. He's reached a settlement with the mine owners. None ts In sight. The two sides have been haggling on and off since last May and seem no nearer an agreement now tlmn then. ' 2. The' President acts to prevent n Dec. 1 strike. There seem to be only two ways in which he can do that: (A) by setting up a fact-finding board or (B) by using the Taft- Hartley Act, which Mr. Truman dislikes. , In -trying to set up the fact-finding board, Mr. Truman would do this: probably .' Ask Lewis and the mine owners (A) to let a fact-finding board, appointed. by the President, look into their dispute and (B) agree there'd be no stuke or lockout for 60 days while the board worked. .Accciilance Is Voluntary The President has no power to force either side to accept this arrangement. Acceptance would be voluntary. If Lewis or the owners or both, refused, that would be the end of that idea. But—then, to prevent a strike Dec. 1, Mr. Truman could trot out the .Tall-Hartley Act and declare a national emergency. Then, under that law,- and whether Lewis and owners liked It or not. Mr. Truman would have lo set up a fact-finding board. This board almost certainly would report back to Mr. Truman before the Dec. 1 deadline. Then Mr. Truman would.lake the next step provided for under'the T-H law. Ke'rl ask for an Injunction, or court 'order, forbidding a strike for 80 days. The purpose of the 80-day delay under the law is to give both sides in a labor dispute more time to settle It. After that 80-day delay, though, Lewis would be free to strike. But these two courses open to Mr. Truman raise some questions: What's the difference between <he fact-tindlng board which the president could set up without using T-H—if both sld&s accepted—and the board he'd' set up if he used T-H? The first board would make » recommendation on what It thought was a fair settlement of the dLi- pute. The T-H board can't, make recommendations but Its findings »r« made public. So, In effect, its findings would amount to » recommendation. Why wouldn't Lewis be willing to accept that non-Taft-Hartley fact- linding board? He might accept. But- Lewis never has wanted a third party like the government to step Into his affairs when ttiere was a chance he might not get what he wanted. Could 0|icrale Through Winter Suppose Lewis and the owners accepted this non-T-H board and agreed there'd be no strike or lockout for 60 days. Say the board wa.s set up next Monday. Those 60 days would keep the miners digging coal Into the nilddle of January, helping get the country through the winter. But suppose at the end of those GO days In mid-January Lewis refused to accept the board's recommendations. What then? He'd be fice to strike. But wouldn't that be the worst time for a strike—from the standpoint of the country? No, If by then enough coal had been mined to carry the nation through until spring. But—if Lewis wanted to strike in mid-January and It would hurt the country, then Mr. Truman coiilrt use the T-H act, set up the T-H fact-finding board, get a court order, and delay the strike another for those who demand Vafae Gracefully curved arms and a slightly curicdback distinguish ihe conventional styling of the Brigli ton Group Sofa KARPEN DYERSBURG GALLERIES The classic dignity of ihis htimf orncly designed nntl attractively covered band chair accents the dmnn of the Brighton 1*JQ' Prom thc con tour oflhcarmM ^ the loose piltow ha here's a chnir that's rtnlly built for lourtg- .J^A •"« 129 There's double beauty in fhcsc handsome twins. t\'olc the tra punfo uork and the smartly taifotcd kick pleats KARTPEN nj UN ITU us.

That would prevent a strike until April, the beginning of warm weather. But couldn't Lewis defy the court order and let his men strike? He might, but maybe he wouldn't. He tried that bclore. He and his union paid $1.420.000 in fines this week for contempt of court in a 10W walkout.
