But the employes of the Cumberland Contracting Company had to quit work after about two hours because of the bad weather. There was a work stoppage yesterday when the Plumbers and Stcamfiltcrs- Union picketed the job, saying they wanted Local 616, Laborers and Hodcarricrs Union to uphold a 1941 agreement A Building Trades official said yie work "stoppage was "a misunderstanding." Charles Cross, business agent for Local 489. said a 1941 international agreement between laborers and plumbers gives his craft the right to put gas and water mains in the ditch and. make, the joints after laborers have brought the pipe to the ditch side. Earl C. Robertson, spokesman for the Cumberland Contracting Company, said the stoppage arose from a jurisdictional dispule be Iween the plumbers and laborers unions. He said when the job started, the plumbers wanted the joint work let as a sub-contract to a plumbing contractor, but that now they want to go back to a 1941 agreement under which the union could furnish plumbers direct to the contractor.

Cross said today he is contacting the union's international representative in Washington to obtain sanction for-a. picket line again Monday.

Johnston Jr. and Philip J. Stone. The article maintains that the recreational area should be built around the C&O canal tunnel at Paw Paw, with the project cover-mg one-half mile of the canal on each side of the mountain. Would Repair Towpath The area would contain facilities for picnicking, auto camping, and include parking areas, drinking water, fireplaces, tables, refuse receptacles, privies, bathhouse and a small swimming- float. Access to the tunnel section could be made by a short road from Route 51, the authors declared The article advocates repairs to breaks in the towpath to improve hiking. .--,'. Further east,: in the Little Orleans section a "natural, area" should be provided, the authors maintain, with primitive conditions maintained as much as possible.; They propose a camp site with drinking water, fire places, refuse pit and privy and a landing for boaters. Cacapon Termed Perfect The Cacapon River, one of the tributaries of the Potomac River, and its 27 miles between Largent and Capon Bridge at U. S. 50, is termed a perfect wild riverway. The main drawback for its use by boaters, anglers and hikers is that most of the land along It is privately owned. The authors say the solution to this problem is the purhcase of an easement strip along it for fishing rights and access trails from county roads in that section. Campsites should be made along this riverway with the best spots near Capon Bridge at the mouth of Critton Run, near forks of Cacapon, and near Largent. ••'" The article refers to the many wild animals that live along this, riverway;•; the" ; :beauty -of- Castle Mountain, and the unusual Bubbling Spring where water gushes up from a fissure in deep layer; of limestone, and flows into tha river. -'•'* Tells of Management The Wilderness Society, in notes accompanying the reprint of ths article, defines the three types of land management.

William (Continued on Page 14) ic, natural or historic interest (usually within a forest or other large special area) set aside for picknicking, camping, swimming, hiking, fishing and similar outdoor activities which do not modify the natural environment. A natural area is a relatively small piece of land of geological, botanical or zoological interest, largely undisturbed (usually within a forest or other special area) set aside for preservation, nature study, research and similar outdoor-activities which do not modify the natural environment Official f-oaU A wild riverway k a stretch of fairly large stream characterized by beauty, solitude and primitive conditions set aside for fishing, canoeing, hiking and camping. The stream must be protected from pollution, dams and'bridges, and its banks must be protected from buildings and facilities for mechanical transportation. The Wilderness Society said hs goals are the official designation of these three proposed areas by public planning and land management agencies; the acquisition by public agencies of certain pieces of private land, or the negotiation of easements for public use and the preservation of such private lands, and the permanent management of these areas in accordance with the recommendations that hav« been proposed.
