"The erroneous idea seems to have become current that George Meany president of the AFL-CIO, offered an olive branch to industry when he spoke at the NAM meeting in New York, and that NAM rejected his offer of peace," Parker Mid In a statement Monday. c He said that "a reading of Mr. Meany's speech shows that he made no offer of live-and-let-live agreement, a nonaggression pact, or any other peace offer." "The nearest Mr. Meany came to offering an olive branch was his reference to a 'greater understanding of the trade union movement,' ' Parker said. AP&L customers, however, are paying the higher rates requested under the pending application. Rates ewre raised temporarily under bond. 1 AP&L contnds that it needs higher rates in order to earn a six per cent return os its investments.
