Faint Glimmer of Hope Held in Paper Strike NEW YORK (AP)~NegotiaU0M return to the bargaining table today In an effort to restore peace in the city's newspaper Industry, throttled by a 17-day-dld deliverers' strike. Presses at the cKy'g nine major dallies remain idle as federal mediators sit down again with representatives of the striking deliverymen and publishers of the nine papers. 'Quite Encouraged' The talks recessed Wednesday on a faint glimmer of hope. Federal mediator Walter A. Maggiolo said he and other mediators were "quite encouraged by the continued progress being made and the atmosphere in which the parties' deliberations are being conducted." Mediation Commissioner Bernard J. Porman said Thursday: "We are always hopeful that any session might produce a turning point." 15,000 Furloughed About 15,000 of the papers' 20,000 employes have been furloughed. Many are members of nine other newspaper unions, all AFL-CIO, which are- not supporting the independent Deliverers' Union. The papers closed down Dec. 11, two days after the deliverers' struck. Another 5,000 employes are still on the job on a standby basis. Mounting Drain The strike has been a mounting drain also on newspaper management. Pre-Christmas advertising and circulation revenue losses exceeded 20 million dollars. Unless there is sudden and rapid settlement, New Yorkers are likely to pass the long holiday weekend without the 5^4 million third Sunday without major city newspapers Turned Down Offer The turned down a publishers' offer of i LOST SEAMAN'S CHILDREN CHRISTMAS AS HAPPY AS POSSIBLE—Christ mas for the families of the men lost aboard the . freighter Carl D.

Reds Claim Big Railroad Achievement TOKYO (AP) - The Chinese Communist government today i-laimed the greatest railroad building achievement for one year in China's history — the laying of 1,400 miles of new track in 1958. Peiping Radio claimed major progress on the gigantic project to build a railroad from Lanchow into remote Sinkiahg province, in northwest China. "Most of the road bed has now been laid for double tracking China's two main lines that link north, east and south China — the Peiping - Canton and Peiping- Shanghai lines," Peiping said.

The Suez crisis of 1956 provided a big stimulus for Egyptian industry. Egypt's sterling balances were frozen in Britain, and to a great extent imports from the West were cut off. That gave infant local industries a golden opportunity to break into the market. Start From Scratch Many of the new factories are assembly plants which put together parts imported' from abroad. ..

HERALD 4 Friday, Dec. 26, 195ft 0 Public Servants Turn Yule Into Money Racket By HAL COOPER LONDON (AP) - The annual war of nerves with the British dustmen, postmen and holiday carolers has been fought and as usual lost. New strategy is needed. The way to beat the Boxing Day and caroling racket Is to spend the Christmas and New Year holidays somewhere else. Next year, Tierra del Fuergo, here we come. Reverse Twist In Britain, the day after Christmas is known as Boxing Day. This is the day when the people who serve you throughout the year- such as your newsboy — come around with a box. Only now they don't wait until the day after, they come the day before Christmas. You are expected to put money in the box. The Borough Council, which hires the dustmen (or garbage collectors), frowns on this practice. Nevertheless on Dec. 24 the doorbell always rings and there stands the head dustman. Has Clipboard He has a clipboard holding a list of the addresses at which he and his crew pick up garbage. His pencil is poised expectantly over yours. A born coward, you haye visions of overflowing, odorous garbage cans throughout 1959. You give him 10 shillings ($1.40). As the day proceeds you also give: The postman 10 shillings. The newsboy 5 shillings. Your window t cleaner 10 shillings. 10 More Shillings Your neighborhood handyman who mows the lawn 10 shillings. The laundry staff 10 shillings. The butcher boy 5 shillings. Night falls. The two small children are asleep. The doorbell; rings. The two small children are; instantly awake tnd wailing. . There also is wailing at the: door. This comes from a group of children, aged 9 to 11, singing "Noel, Noel." You fork over half a crown (33 cents). Seconds later you realize jthis is madness, but it's too late now. Word spreads through the neighborhood. When the bell rings for the fifth time you leap out of your chair as though harpooned from the rear. 'Don't Strike Children' "Don't you dare strike those poor children!" warns your wife. "I'm not going to strike the bloody carolers'," you reply, "I'm going to dismantle the bleeding doorbell!" This is done. Briefly, there is peace. Then the living-room door opens and in comes your oldest son, aged 2Vi. The time is 9:45 p.m. "Good morning," he says. "Is it Christmas yet?" Daughter of State Couple, Children Die ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The daughter of an Ely, Minn, couple and her two children died of gas fume? in their apartment early Christmas Day. Fire department crews found the bodies of Mrs. Jo Ann Wiles, 28, and her children, Dicky, 10, and Cathy, 8, after a neighbor called authorities. The body of the mother and boy were found in a bedroom and the girl's body was in another room. The father died last year. The woman's employer, Charles P. B. Pinson, said he stopped in to see the family Christmas Eve and they appeared to be in a happy holiday mood. Police said the cause of death was gas fumes either from a heater or a stove. .The woman's parents, Mr. and There have been numerous Mrs - p - A - Serson of Ely, were | headaches involved in launching ; celebrating Christmas with their such an ambitious program.
