The White House Is expected to release the report later today. «r^ e " as the Wfort *'«nt to the White House, a bill was Introduced in Ihe house which would authorize anti-trust prosecution of John •L. Lewis for striking the nation's coal mines. Board members Indicated the report would advise Mr. Truman that the pension dispute between John L. Lewis and soft coal operators threatens to "imperil the national health and safety." Under the Taft- Hartley act, such a finding empowers the President to seek an injunction, to halt the walkout, for at least 80 days. Clark Ready to Act Informed sources said Mr Truman may announce Immediately upon releasing the report that he is directing Attorney General Tom C. Clark to go Into U. S. DIsrtlct Court to get an anti-strike order Clark reportedly has the necessary papers ready. ed at once. Lewis served notice he would fight to block it and government lawyers said legal arguments could delay i decision by a jfceek or so. *~ But even an Immediate injunction and settlement of the pension dispute within 80 days would assure the coal Industry nothing more than a temporary breathing spell. Lewis' current contract with the producers has only BO days more to run and the miners do not work the walk- without a contract. Mr. Truman almost certainly will School Sponsors Sought , Next step.
