ROOSEVELT ACTS TO END DISPUTE IN COAL TRADE Watchful Waiting To Be Policy For . Ford Case WASHINGTON <U£>—Weeks of •wrangling over a bituminous coal code- ended Thursday after President Roosevelt Intervened and drove t, bargain with embattled spokesmen for capital and labor on wage a-nd hour provisions. The president Instructed Recv- ery Administrator Hugh 5. Johnson to reconcile a third point of dispute, over unionization, in a code and submit it to mine operators and union leaders Thursday. The code -rill be promulgated Saturday. The president also decided the administration policy in the case of Henry Ford, who refused to sign the automobile code, it will be simply to await the public's reaction, Johnson announced. The president's policy of non-aggression in the case of Ford followed an assertion by Johnson that if Fprd was working his em- ployes 40 hours a week he was violating the automobile code. However, Johnson said no investigators have been sent to ..Detroit to check on Ford. In drafting the labor provision of the coal code Johnson faced the task of reconciling one of the most controversial questions to ' come before recovery administration. He indicated he would not permit inclusion of ' a qualifying clause giving employers the right to hire and discharge workers regardless of unio.n affiliations. This clause. Incorporated in the automobile charter, caused the deadlock in negotiations for an agreement on the coal code, before Mr. Roosevelt interceded Wednesday night and gave Johnson authority to proceed.
