' —Memphis F fess-Sclmltar. Hew To Tlie Line Tlic conl crisis appears lo be back where It was n fortnight ago. Secretary Ickes -continues to o|)crnlD the mines on behalf of the'United Slates Govcniincnt, John Lewis has once more graciously consented to |>emill llie members 01 life imloi) to work In (.fie mines—tor « two-week period of grace. And the War Ijibor Board re- nmlns seated unhappily on the sidelines, like a wallflower, wondering when Mr. Lewis will nsk "it to dance. In his telegram to John Lewis seeking assurance Hint coal mining would be uninterrupted, Mr. Icke.1 expressed the hoi>e that "the way will be o|wn for limnedlnlc collecltvc bargaining conferences." Mr. Lewis' hope, expressed In reply, wns that Mr. ibkes would "Instruct the coal operators of the Industry lo forthwith engage In collective bargaining .conferences." -Neither of hopes Is shared by this newspaper. On Ihu contrnVy, it .seems lo us that the time for collective bargaining expired when the War Labor Board assumed jurisdiction over the tlls- rjule. This board lias explicitly instructed the operators not to proceed with collective bargain- Ing until both parlies nre ready to accept its nusplcrs. Thcro is no good reason to suppost tlial collective bargaining woiild be any more fruitful now Ihan It was before. John Lewis' traclablllty docs not appear lo have Increased. And the operators nre apparently determined to concede nothing unless compelled to do so. The War Labor Board was established to meet precisely this sort of situation. It is high time for It lo start functioning, n hns at its disposal nil the essential facts of the cnse. If John Lewis wants lo recognize Its authority and come before It lo argue for his side, well and good. If he does not, the board Is perfectly capable of reaching an cqullnble decision without him. Thht decision should be reached ns promptly as possible, ; mid f the coal dispute (should be settled In accordance with it. The maintenance of the WLB's authority ns we have pointed out before, Is the prime Issue In this case. We are glud that Mr. Ickes, In his subsequent letter to Lewis, took care to reaffirm that.authority. If ihe board should be bypassed In this particular situation, it might ns well be burled. And burled along with It will be labor's no-slrlke pledge. For other labor leaders will not ue content to petition peaceably for redress of their grievances' If they see Lewis 1 strong-arm ladies win results. The .War Labor Bourd must proceed to .act; decisively on lids case at once, nml its decision must be imeqiiiv- ocably upheld with the full power of Ihe Federal Government. -Washington Post SO THEY SAY i There must be no bitterness In the reconstructed world.

She was looking into the middle ol his back. Her eyes saw the way the bonds pulled his wrists tightly together. The plane lurched again. The bump was another hard one.
