British miners to renew work LONDON (AP) - Britain's 280,000 coal miners are due back at work Monday following a wage settlement to end their month-king strike. But industry that has been snarled by the walkout is expected to take some time to get back into full production. Prime Minister Harold Wilson was expected to order a speedy end to the three-day work week on which his Conservative predecessor put much of Britain's industry to conserve coal-supplied electric WEATHER RANGE High Low Pr. 25 22 .. 24 24 25 12 20 20 21 16 37 36 45 33 29 26 .04 Fergus Falls Bemidji, cldy Duluth, cldy Hibbing Int.

But much of industry will take some time to get back into full production because the shortened work week disrupted the flow of raw materials and component parts. Maintenance men began preparing the coal pits today just hours after the leaders of the miners' union reached a $230- million-a-year wage agreement in 12 hours of bargaining with the National Coal Board. The settlement was the first order of business for Wilson's new Labor government, which took office Monday after displacing Edward Heath's Conservatives in the general election last week. To get the settlement, the government threw out the 7 per cent anti-inflation ceiling on pay raises which the Conservatives tried to defend in the elections. Even before the voting, however, it was generally conceded that whichever party won would put aside the ceiling to end the strike. And the settlement that was accepted was proposed by a fact-finding pay board appointed by Heath's government. The miners will get an average increase of 22 per cent, with the lowest category of basic pay increasing from $58.17 to $71.30 a week and the highest from $84.60 to J103.50. Bonuses for shift work and other benefits will mean an additional $18.40 for most of the underground force. The size of the proposal resulted from the pay board's discovery late in the election campaign that the miners, who traditionally have gotten more money than other manual laborers, had slipped to seventh place because their earnings were being computed on a different basis from that of other workers. The settlement, $29 million less than the $259-milliori package the miners demanded, still must be approved by union local meetings on Friday. But the vote will only be a formality because of the 25-2 vote for acceptance by the mine union's executive. "We didn't get the full thing, but we think it's a reasonable settlement," union chief Joe Gormley told newsmen. Elsewhere on the economic front, cabinet Minister Shirley Williams warned housewives not to expect a drastic cut in food costs as a result of Labor's election victory. But Mrs. Williams, named to head a new Department of Prices and Consumer Protection, said she hopes to announce subsidies to reduce the price of basic foods within weeks. MARKETS SOUTH ST.

The governors asked the Nixon administration to release federal highway funds impounded in past years without making the states put up the usual matching money. Otherwise, the main business of the conference was accom- plistved in corridors of the convention hotel where governors of both parties gave indications that President Nixon may be the campaign issue of 1974. A number of governors, including for the first lime some Republicans, suggested openly that the country would be better off if Nixon should quit or be impeached and replaced by Vice President Gerald R. Ford. The new boldness apparently traced in part to a series of election reverses for the GOP, including the loss of a traditionally Republican congressional seat in Ohio on the opening day of the meeting. These Republican losses have been linked with Nixon's Watergate problems. And New ratings released by conservatives WASHINGTON (AP) Senators from Minnesota and South Dakota were given the lowest possible score by the conservative Americans for Constitutional Action in its annual ratings of Congress Friday. Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, D- Minn., and Sen. James A. Abourezk, D-S.D., were among four senators who received zero ratings from the conservative group. The ratings were based on the lawmakers votes cast in the first session of the 93rd Congress last year on 28 issues ranging from airport subsidies to school busing, ownership of gold and defense programs. A rating of 100 per cent means a congressman voted in agreement with the ACA on every issue, while a zero rating means he never agreed with the ACA in the selected votes. although few governors would call it the leading electoral issue, nearly all said it would be an important factor. Democrats hold 32 governorships to 18 for the GOP. This year 23 Democratic and 12 Republican governors' jobs will be up for election. Among the other political charges flying at the conference were allegations that Democrats are being harassed by federal agencies and discriminated against by administration energy officials. Republicans denounced this as "political poor-mouthing." Meanwhile, action on several important resolutions dealing with the energy crisis was postponed until the regular summer meeting of the National Governors Conference in Seattle in June. Gov. Francis W. Sargent of Massachusetts was the first GOP governor to tell newsmen that Nixon should go. Sargent was joined in this sentiment by Oregon Gov. Thomas McCall, a Republican who has been a frequent administration critic, and Democratic Govs. Jimmy Carter of Georgia, Wendell H. Ford of Kentucky, Milton J. Shapp of Pennsylvania, and Patrick J. Lucey of Wisconsin, who had received an icy reception when he first put forward the idea at the governors conference in Nevada last June. Ford brought up the harass- Fergus Falls (Mi.) burial Fri., Mar. 8, 1974 9 ment charges in a news conference. He said Democratic office holders had been subjected to checks into federally funded programs, their political fundraising and personal finances, including tax audits. Ford said some of the probes by the Justice Department, Internal Recenue Service and General Accounting Office had been spurred by tips or complaints from Republicans. Republicans, including Tennessee Gov. Winfield Dunn, chairman of the Republican Governors Association, said the Democrats were trying to make political capital out of routine investigations and that Republicans were being investigated as well.
