XLT—NO. 82 ^Mediation Only Hope in Averting Railroad Strike Two Brotherhoods Refuse to Submit Issue to Arbitration HICAGO, April 30. <up)_ A Jedetal mediator announced today after his third meeting with principals In the nationwide rail labor dispute that "both sides are still unyielding at this point." Chairman frank P. Douglass of the National Railway Mediation board emerged from a morning *ession with representatives of the railroads and outlined briefly his •IrlX* 8 *° Rmt * nR t IonwId « rail The strike has been voted for May n by three operating rail JKotherhoods, and mediators have •Emitted that the only hipe of heading it off lies Sn their efforts. Spokesman for two of the brotherhood, M id in Cleveland that they would not submit the dispute to arbitration. Douglas said that the "big differences at this time revolve around the recommendations made by the emergency board." The board a presidential fact-finding agency, last month recommended a 15-14 cent hourly increase. The brotherhoods, asking 30 cents, rejected the the recommendation. The carriers have offered to accept the recommendations, and "both sides remain unchanged," Douglass said. He met twice yft- terday with brotherhood representatives. Douglass admitted earlier that Iw saw no hope of arbitration at present. "Of course we will suggest It," he said," but we don't think the parties are inclined to arbitrate. Direct negotiations appear to be the only way to solve the problem." Douglass made the statement shortly before he met with representatives of the nation's railroads. Testerday he and Francis A. O'Neill, • other mediation board mem- began their last-ditch settle- mt attempt by meeting with representatives of the brotherhoods, who threaten to call 150,000 engineers, firemen and switchmen out «i strike May 11. •^Douglass pointed out that the bro- wiernoode .once before had rejected a proposal'to arbitrate after the board's first mediation attempt fall- id- last 'January; *'' •• - — _J rUE DOMINANT NKWSPAPER c* NORTHEAST AH^KANKa. , •^X%. i, ^ J_J ^T |^ Bh-thevlll.
