Lewis Miners Strike Again CIO Convention Votes Will Map Future Policy WASHINGTON, Nov. 16. (UP) John L. Lewis' United Mine Workers union renewed its walkout in the steel industry's captive coal mines at 12:01 a. m. Sunday after more than two weeks of unsuccessful attempts to negotiate the dispute over a union shop contract. The 53,000 members of the C. I. O. MIAMI'S OWN WHIRLIGIG News Behind The News OT OBSERVANT County Park Superintendent A. D. Barnes might have been spared the inconvenience of spending a cold, dreary night drifting in his disabled boat after it developed engine trouble last week had fellow yachtsmen, a dredging crew or citizens along the shore been more alert. The only time his constantly flashing SOS signal, three dots, three dashes and three dots, seemed to be observed was when a parked automobile flashed its headlights in apparent answer and then drove away, presumably to obtain help, which never came. It wasn't until Mrs. Barnes notified the coast guard that Barnes was found by them at dawn the next day. At one time during the night, Barnes boat was near enough to a dredging barge to hear its ma chinery going full blast. Before the coast guard found him, Barnes had been waving a large piece of can vas, which went unnoticed even by another boat close enough so (Tom tm race 8-A WHIRI.IGIO) union automatically went on a strike basis at Saturday' midnight with the expiration of the strike truce which Lewis called three weeks ago to permit further negotiations with the steel companies which control the mines. A union spokesman announced late Saturday afternoon that the walkout would be resumed after the U. M. W.'s 200-man policy board was advised by Lewis that no prog ress had been made so far In direct negotiations with executives of the steel companies. The act.on, however, does not necessarily mean that there will be an actual stoppage of work in the captive mines because Lewis and his policy committee left the door open for a possible resump tion of worn Monday morning. Sunday Parleys The union spokesman said that in event an agreement is reached when negotiations with steel com pany executives are resumed at 11 a. m.

Twice or thrice a week the self-important weather editor "informs" his public the status of the Heavenly regions, with an occasional sidelight on tomato patches or football games. The rest of the time an assistant has to do the forecasting. It's about time an organization was formed of assistant weather editors, with a requirement that every day the weather editor doesn't work, he fixes them up with tickets for next week's foot ball game. The third assistant doesn't know whether the head weather wonder is out fishing or digging for worms, but we do know It's going to be partly cloudy Sun day with continued mild tern peratures. PLAN COVENTRY AS MODEL CI1Y British To Create Beauty From Ruins Of Nazi Bombing (Bperlal by (lie New York Herald Tribune to the Miami Dnllv Nrw) COVENTRY, Nov. 15. A new Coventry, laid out In accordance with the rarely practiced theories of today's city planning experts, will rise after the war on the site of this sorely bombed city. Coventry, expanded over the last half century from a picturesque medieval walled town Into a heavily industrialized city, may become England's first model city. Plans have already been drawn down to the last detail for reconstruction of the 100-acre area in the heart of Coventry, to provide new civic, business and recreation centers. City architects, working on the project, have made drawings and scale models of the new Coventry. They are now at work designing handsome- new housing developments to replace slum areas bombed out by Nazi high explo sives and incendiaries. The plans as now drawn provide for a central arcaded shopping dis trict, built around garden squares. No automobile traffic will be al lowed inside the shopping area, al though motorists will be allowed to drive up to the outside ap proaches of the area to parking places. Nurseries are planned to accommodate children while par ents shop. It is estimated that it will cost between 6,000,000 pounds and 8 000,000 pounds ($24,000,000 to $32,-000,000) to reconstruct the center of Coventry, according to present plans.

The 14 to 0 reversal marked the University Hurricanes, initial de feat in seven games and toppled them from the nation's elect, before a magnificent but somewhat stunned crowd of 31,731 fans a regular season record chiefly U. M. eympathizors whose hopes had soared skyward with each successive Miami triumph, to the point that they could hardly believe what they saw unfolded before their startled gaze Saturday evening. Miami hurled back time and again, its best backs stopped in their tracks, was a new and strange sight. Line Plays Well The Hurricane line played its normally stout defensive game, re fusing to yield a touchdown on the ground, but Tommy Harrison - Touchdown Tommy struck twice, both times in the air, and eiien netted a touchdown. On each oc casion Forrest Ferguson, his old battery mate, was there to spcai the ball and gallop on to glory. The first scoring play, a light ning stab, carried 42 yards, Harri son himself having raced back 27 yards on a Howard Plasman punt On the first play thereafter he faded back and pegged a high fly 24 yards from the scrimmage line to Captain Ferguson. It caught Miami napping and before they were fully conscious of what was (Turn to Pace !-! AIR ATTACK) Texas Defeated, Only 5 Elevens Still Unbeaten NEW YORK. Nov. 15. (UP) The Rose Bowl kaleidoscope was given another vigorous shake-up Saturday when Stanford was upset for the second time and Texas Buffered its first defeat of the football season. f ; However, Notre Dame remained unbeaten by virtue of a one-point victory over Northwestern in the day's feature contest, while the four surviving major perfect-record teams continued unbeaten and untied-Minnesota, Texas Aggies, Duke and Duquesne. Stanford's defeat threw the Pacific Coast conference race into a three-way dog fight, but Minnesota, Missouri and the Texas Aggies clinched at least title ties in the Big Ten, Big Six and Southwest Conferences, respectively.

Fantastic as that may sound, It is entirely possible, indeed probable, that the commissioners fig uratively, will take. off their shirts ahd attempt to bring about accom plishments which hitherto admit tedly have failed. Commissioner Fred W. Hosea, who took little part in the fracas last Wednesday, which saw a number of personal friendships close to t6ppllng, is sparking a meeting for Monday to take up "some un finished business." Several Move Conniilered Hosea is not alone in his idea that a dozen and one important things, all of which have been dis cussed and many of which have the tentative support of a majority of the commissioners, have been allowed to ride too long. City Man ager A. D. F. Bloodworth has been instructed to compile an agenda of these items and bring them to the meeting Monday. Mayor C. H. Reedcr is agreed that until these matters are set tied there should be several meet ings each week. Hosea suggested "at least two besides the regular Wednesday sessions." Commissioner James A. Dunr.

Public Officials Pledge Full Support To Governor In Anti-Gambling Decree WALTER CLARK Sheriff of Broward County Public officials of Dade and Broward county late Saturday expressed wholehearted agreement with Gov. Spessard I Holland's demands for a shutdown on gambling activities. Promises that his orders would be enforced came from Sheriff D. C. Coleman of. Dade county, who declared, "I am going to follow the chief's order. I do not discount the magnitude of the job or the trouble I am going to have doing it, but I can do it and I am going to do it." Sheriff Walter Clark of Broward county said simply, "I am going to carry out his wishes 100 per cent." Police Chief H. Leslie Quigg declined comment on the governor's statement. G. A. Worley, state attorney here, said, "Personally, I'm in favor of strict enforcement of the gambling ban. I think it is a good idea to start an immediate closing of gam- (Tarn to Fata i-A COMMENT) 1 r v J , i D. C. COLEMAN Sheriff of Dad County .,ira .' if '(, ;,- vvv Holland Baos All Gambling Dade, Broward Officials Told Law Musi Be Enforced Here Gov. Spessard L. Holland disclosed Saturday night that he has directed the sheriffs of Dade and Broward counties to close all gambling establishments in their counties and to keep them closed throughout the winter. Although the governor issued a written statement regarding the gambling situation and declined to comment further, there was every indication his announcement means the two Gold Coast counties will experience at least one -- .'- season without the dubious i r:4. j of chance. Governor Holland's statement follows: "Many hundreds of the most representative citizens of the Dade-Broward area have complained to me with reference to the operation of bookmaking and gambling establishments here. They advised me that such operations last spring were open and notorious and could not have continued without the knowledge and acquiescence of lo?al law enforcement officials. They say that deplorable lack of law enforcement in general, and widespread lack of confidence in law enforcement agencies has resulted. They believe that this condition is so serious as to constitute a definite menace to the reputation and continued welfare of the area and a hazard to all law abiding, citi- zens and all lawful business. Intervention Requested "They have insistently urged me as governor to intervene and to use all means within the civil power of the state to bring this condition to an end and to prevent its recurrence. I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that in this instance such intervention, at the request of the citizens themselves, is necessary. "I have accordingly directed the sheriffs of Dade and Broward counties to use every lawful means and all possible diligence to bring this situation to an end and to close out these gambling and bookmaking establishments and keep them out. I shall hold the two sheriffs officially responsible for the carrying out of this effort in their respective counties, both outside and inside of the municipalities, and I direct all constables and other state law enforcement officials to co-operate actively. I have been assured by the mayor of Miami of the full co-operation of the Miami city authorities, and I respectfully request the like co-operation of the authorities of all other municipalities in the area. State investigators will be in the area continuously and the co-operation of the federal law enforcement agencies has been assured. The prosecuting officials have promised their full co-operation and they will be furnished outside assistance whenever this seems advisable. I respectfully invite all good citizens to hold up the hands of the officials in this matter and to do all in their power to bring an end to this regrettable situation. "Decent Enforcement9 "It is particularly important during these trying times that decent law enforcement shall prevail and that citizens shall have respect and confidence in their government. I sincerely hope that by the end of the season which is just now begining it will be possible for the state to terminate its intervention." Observers read a tone of finality in the state chief ex- (Torn U Fata S-A HOIAAND) GOV. SPESSARD I- HOLLAND . . He MeaiiH It f
