TUESDAY, OCTOBER 19,1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) OOCWBR NEWS PAOB 450 Companies Still Are Holding Out On Striking Truckers NEW YORK (AP) — A plan to continue holding out higher pay. but admit they are agreeing to union terms. During the strike's third day yesterday the AFL Teamsters Union claimed employer resistance \vas "collapsing on all sides." It reported an "avalanche" of individual settlements, mostly with small firms. Fight Continues The holdout firms voted at a strategy meeting last night to continue to fight union demands. However, before the meeting the employers' chief negotiator, Joseph M. Adelizzi, said ther position was weakened by defections in employer ranks. He added that "the next two days" will tell whether they can continue to hold the line. Originally some 3,500 firms were involved in the strike. It affects general freight carriers in an area stretching from the tip of Long Island through New York City then south as far as Trenton ,N .J., and north to Poughkecpsic, N. Y. Damage Suit There was no indication exactly how" many firms had signed union agreements, but they apparently were not deterred by a 10-million- dollar damage suit filed against the teamsters and seven firms that earlier agreed to union terms. Nine truckers, the mainstay of • the holdout group, filed the suit in State Supreme Court, charging that the union and signing companies had conspired to "seize and steal" business from firms that refused to settle. The suit also charged that the seven defendant companies had violated a pm'porten agreement to keep up a solid employers' front and not sign with the union individually. A and P N'amed One of the companies named, the A&P Food Stores. Inc., imme diately issued a statement saying it had never entered into such an agreement. The suit was belittled by the teamsters' chief economist, David Kaplan, who termed it a "scare" tactic and "desperation" move. In addition to damages, the suit asked for a court order to prevent the union or signing companies from "inducing or coercing" other firms to sign contracts. The judge set tomorrow morning for a hear- group of 450 truck companies against a driver's strike for weakened by other employers ing. The strike began Saturday over union demands for an hourly package increase of 25 cents an hour. The highest company offer at the time was a 10-cent package. An employer offer to arbitrate the dispute was turned down by the union. Little Effect Present wages run from $1.77 for helpers to $2.77 for drivers of tractor trailers. The union estimated that more than 23,000 drivers were involved in the strike originally. Yesterday Kaplan said fully two thirds of the strikers in New York City \Vould go back to work. The strike has produced little effect on the city's business life thus far. Johnny Johnston Freed of Charge They LOYB It WARWICK, Va. Wi — Mrs. TJ. S.

LOS ANGELES IB— Singer Johnny Johnston and his wife Shirley embraced happily after n superior court judge ruled that Johnston is not the father of a showgirl's expected child. "Just because a woman says a man is the father of her child doesn't make it so," Judge Elraer D. Doyle commented yesterday, as he denied the claim of Bette Bowers testified she was intimate with Johnston in a hotel room in Washington last March. Johnston, 39, denied it and his attorney said he will press Johnston's separate action in Santa Monica Superior Court asking for declaratory relief or a judgment stating that Miss Bowers has no claim on him.

'Your Book Is Too Teuf and Sexi ...A Trilleur' By PRESTON GROVER PARIS Ml — Part Of the French press is worried that English Is creeping in to corrupt the French language. Most indignant is the Dimanche Matin, n fellow-traveling newspaper, which recites a whole list of English words crowded into a single talk by an editor-to an author: 'The standing reputation of the nouse requires reraiting (that is the way rewriting looks in French) of your story. It lacks suspense (the paper had a hard time .explaining this in few words). You abuse the flashback (it had a harder time with this). It lacks pep < piment is about as good in French). Your book is too teuf (tough) and sexi. It sounds like a rimeque (remake) of an old trill- eur (thriller)." Complained Dimanche Matin: "It is very disturbing that It should be in the literary world that ,he French language is so beaten around."
