I Ending of Coal Strike Shows Lewis Beats a Smart Retreat What amounts to a three-week truce has been ordered by John L. Lewis in the coal dispute. The maneuver is not » new tactic with Lewis. The only question is: Why did he resort to it at this time ? A review of the miners' strike history in recent years shows that the United Wine Workers' boss has often ', beat a strategic retreat just at the . moment a stoppage threatened to become genuinely critical. There were . three truces in 1943, each followed by new strikes. Another was declared in • 3946 as Lewis was about to be summoned to the White House for a showdown with President Truman. Similar factors apparently affected Lewis' decision this time. After 51 days without production, coal stockpiles in many parts of the nation were getting dangerously low. A real emergency was approaching. Hints dropped by government officials gave the miners' chief warning that some sort of federal intervention would certainly be undertaken if a settlement of the strike did not develop ' . shortly. Use of the government's injunctive powers under the Taft-Hartley law generally was expected in the event no accord was reached. The feeling seemed to be that Lewis would ignore al! ordinary back-to-work appeals and respond only to the compelling authority of the federal courts. The pressure upon Lewis to do something in the face of this prospect was increased by the wide cracks in the steel strike front. With major and minor steel makers signing up one by one, it became clear their demand for coal soon would exceed the above-ground supply. Nothing but a resumption of mining could have prevented another steel stoppage in a few weeks.' Lewis, always trying to gauge all factors in his efforts to win new gains, surely must have understood thoroughly that within a week or so the government would be bound to move against him. The Bethlehem steel settlement started events rolling. With the expectation that other firms would soon sign pension agreements, Lewis nevertheless was reluctant to call off his own walkout until the pressures upon him actually developed. He sought instead to break the coal operators' solid resistance by obtaining a settlement with the Hli- noiseand Jndiana producers. The attempt failed. To judge from (he progress made in negotiations during the 51-day strike, from now until Nov. 30 is none too long n period for the minors and operators to find the necessary common ground. JSut federal mediators, well aware of (he damage another strike could cause with winter weather in the offing, un- doubtedly will work tlr«l««»ly to r«- solv« the differences and keep the' men in the pifg. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2!, 1949 Can't Win All the Time Tlie volcrs of Boston have perhaps ended for all lime the ptihlic career of Mayor James Jlicliael Cui'ley, who can only he described as R political phenomenon. The 74-year-old Ctirley was defeated in his bid for a fifth term as mayor. Taking a licking was nothing new for him, but his age serious doubt thai he will ever be able to try again. The veteran Democrat ran up the following score during his career to this moment: four times elected and four times beaten for mayor of Boston ; once elected ami twice defeated for governor of Alassachuctts; three times elected to Congress. In addition, Cm-ley had two spells in jail, the last on a conviction for nutil fraud in 19-17. When he continued in lite mayor's chair right through this somewhat embarrassing episode, it began to appear thai Cm-ley was politically indestructible. Bui the 19.19 results make him look vulnerable after all. And they don't leave him much time to prove otherwise. Views of Others Congressmen at Large Washington correspondent Marquis Childs, now louring Europe, reported recently on the antics of a group of congressmen who make up one of the many learns of our lawmakers now cover- Ing the continent, Inspecting and studying various problems with which America Is concernodr Mr. Childs emphasized that most ol them are seriously interested in what Is happening In Europe, and how American aid is being used, but went on to observe that some of them behave like college freshmen after a football victory. A 'group of which Mr. Childs spoke arrived in tile capital of one country n hours late because Ihey were bewitched en route by two pretty girls on a station platform. As a result, appointments with cabinet ministers and oilier officials had to be canceled and made over. Al a parly arranged for lliem by Ihe ambassador Ihcy arrived nearly an hour late and, having already lini! a great many cocktails, made it plain they were still moie interested in girls than In talking to cabinet ministers or anyone else who might burden them witii serious information. They at first refused, to go to a small dinner which had been planned for them and, when they finally did go, they left early and noisily. The ambassador, alter administering hangover remedies the next, day. was relieved to get them on the train. These Junketing congressmen may have fell that, because they were out of sight ol tile voters, llielr conduct didn't mnltcr. Bui on European soil they are still the legislative representatives of (he United States. By th"en\: America will be judged. And it cannot be said that America gained stature in the eyes of the. Europeans who were so rudely treated by this delegation. It might be well If Congress advised its members that the deiwitmcnl which is expected of them In the. spotlight of the legislative chambers Is even more necessary In RH arena where world opinion may be influenced. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE SO THEY SAY Between the reactionaries ot the extreme lett with their talk about revolution and class warfare, and the reactionaries of tho extreme ngni with their hysterical cries of bankruptcy and despair, iies thc way of Conrcss.—resident Truman. * * T Any tinkering wdh our dollar would be thc worst- thing Urn. could happen.
