HERALD- 3 Body of Aurora Man Found NEW VOftK (AP>-tfegOtfetoM, deadlocked lit dlstgfcenittit, try again today to end the continuing shutdown ot nine major New York daily newspaper*. Joseph F. Flnrtegan, top national mediator, meets again with the striking Newspaper Mail and De- livertrs Union and the Publishers Assn. of New York City against a backdrop of pessimism and mounting losses on both sides. Hie publishers association said after Monday's talks: "There was no effort on the part of the union to come back to the bargaining table as an alternative to shutting down the press of the world's greatest metropolitan area." Unwillingness to Discuss Asher Schwartz, attorney for the union, ,told newsmen: "the main stumbling block is the unwillingness of the publishers to discuss any of our proposals." The 4,500-member deliverymen's union struck the papers a week ago in a dispute over wages and working conditions. The walkout followed a rank-and-flle rejection of a $7-a-week wage package offer that had been tentatively accepted by union negotiators. The papers stopped publishing Thursday when printers balked al crossing a Deliverers' picket line at the New York Daily News plant. Publishers Assn. President Barney G. Cameron blamed 105 deliverers for causing the strike. He emphasized that less than 1.700 of the union's 4,500 eligible members voted in the 877-to-772 rejection of the $7 offer. "In other words, 105 members of • 4,500-man union were re sponsible for t strike that shut down the nine daily newspapers serving an area of 12 million people and affecting the jobs of 20,000 men and women in the various newspaper crafts. . ." he said. Meanwhile, other unions criti cized the publishers for suspend ing operations. The Allied Printing Trades Council, representing eight me chanical unions, said in a state ment: "We resent the fact that the publishers saw fit to lock ou their employes and we will take every means to collect their los pay." M. Michael Potoker of the American Newspaper Guild said, Entitled to Insurance "The unions feel that the men laid off are entitled to unemployment insurance from the state because they were suspended because of lack of work." In suspending publication, the New York Times said refusal ot the printers to work at the Daily- News violated the printers' contract with all nine papers. Schwartz said the Deliverers' Union, which originally asked a $10 weekly wage package, is now willing to take the publishers' $7 package spread over two years—I Girl, 9, Tries to Stop Car; Injury Fatal INDEPENDENCE, Mq.
