BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOLUME XI,—NO. 86. THE DOMINANT NKWSl'APEK OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST UISflOURl BlythiiYlUc D«ily News ni.vtlievjlle Courier Blytheville Herald Mississippi Vnlley l BMT1,KVJ1,L!<;, ARKANSAS, KIUDAV, JUNK 2(5, l<m SING1.K COPIES F1VB CENTS Chinese Hug Zig-Zag Trenches Half Of Nation's Coal Workers Still Idle As Unions Watch Capital By Vnileil I'ras 'J"lie iinlion's embittered coal miners want- Ihc (jovcrmnenL Lo put Us cards on tlic table. Tlic coal fields throughout, the country arc a contused checkerboard of walk-outs, holly rlcbnlecl union meetings anil watchful waiting on the next move from Washington. Only about, half of Ihe MO.OOO striking United Mine Workers hav returned to \vor!:. Coal diggers In many areas are not yd obeying the bac:k-to-work order issued by John L. Lewis. And they're making no -secret of their feeling that they've been "sold out." I'redicts Trouble A UMW official In Ohio warns there will be considerable dilll- culty in getting any of the men back Into the pits. The union nmn says the workers just won't work for the operators, and he say.s that government operation of the mines since May 1st lias been Just a joke. Say.s the official: "We've got. In convince the men that tlic government- is actually running the mines." Coal Administrator Tckos hns given the miners one hint, at his eard.s. He, says government control of the mines will have to continue longer than had been anticipated. Icke.s meets today ivilli Die coal operators—who also aren't, too happy about the situation. Like the miners, the operators claim Ickes' settlement of the coal strike was n defq^l. for them. Arffeal In President Another dissatisfied pnrty is (he War Labor Board. Today board members went to tlic White House and demanded that President Roosevelt force the miners to accept the WLB's version of a soft coal contract. And President Roosevelt has announced flatly that lie docs not accept the UMW's October 31st deadline' for the new truce. The President added that he was trying to mine coal, and that was what lie would keep on doing.: : Mf. Roosevelt also broke his si- ..lence on- the Srjiitii^Connally anti -strikch bill-and said :'lie would take EomV jifllnii.511.>£e. measure before ft; automatically becomes law .tonight at midnight. But he didn't say whether lie woukl sign it or veto It. Public May Be Hit And it looks as if the general public is also going to join the chorus of complaint. Ickes has announced that the stoppage probably will cause coal to be rationed next winter.' In West Virginia, the greatest coal .producer in the nation, more than 50 mines are idle. And in this stale the. miners charge that the President, the War Labor Board awl (he coal operators have entered into a conspiracy to block pay raises. UMW delegates in Alabama voted unanimously to return to work last night. But the miners refused tp obey their orders today. Alabama miners again stayed away from their jobs. In Pennsylvania increasing numbers of the state's soft coal miners are going back to the pits, but most of the 80.000 hard coal diggers have voted lo stay out. One UMW carter in Pennsylvania says: "John u Lewis is through playing the big shot at our expense." Behind this background of charges and countercharges steel production is being hit. Blast furnaces already have been closed down in Pennsylvania and Alabama, and steel companies predict more shut-downs if all the minors don't get together and resume full operations at once. Bill (he mine workers want :o know where the government stands. Chinese infantrymen hug ihelr zig-zag trenches as n Chinese shell explodes in llic background. Those crack mills under aslulc native officers are holding the Japs from making ndvnnur.s Into Icrrl- tory on the central sector of the Salween front. (Passed by censor.

Can Collection Planned Tomorrow R. A. Nelson, chairman of the Tin Salvage Campaign here, today reminded housewives that the regular monthly can collection will be made tomorrow and urged that they cooperate by placing all old tin cans they have In sacks, boxes or any other containers and leaving them on the street curb where Boy Scouts find city trucks will pick them up. "it is desired that the labels be removed and the cans washed and flattened lo facilitate handling." Mr. Nelson said, "but regardless of whether Ihcy are properly prepared, we must have them." Tin will be reclaimed from the old cans and will be used for filal war pin-poses. It was pointed out. Prior to the war, America imported practically all of it.s lin and now must depend on existing stocks for war manufacturing needs. Medical Discharge Granted A. C.

Incidentally, the .Chinese deny reports that a supply convoy lias been sent to Cliinn across Tibet. A Chinese spokesman says there arc no plans to use the supply route across the Himalayas as wns reported yesterday. He explains this route has been used to some extent by private individuals but it takes nine pack animals for each ton transported and China could only : hopo to get a maximum of 2000 Ions of goods'yearly by this trail.
