Stockpile From 67,500,000 to 43,500,000 Tons. PITTSBURGH. March 14—(UP) —John L. Lewis' 4."i*,000 miners quietly began their two-week me-' morial. holiday today, and eastern railroads started laying off 59,000 men employed in hauling coal. Operators reported that all peaceful at their idled mines. No one except supervisors and maintenance crews showed up for worfc this morning and no pickets wer* posted. The work stoppage is expected to cut the nation's coal stockpile from 67,500,000 to 43.500,000 tons. Lewis called the holiday in protest to tlie appointment of Jamet Boyd as director of the U. S. Bureau of Mines. He termed It a me- morlal to the "unnecessary slaughter" of 1.015 miners and Injury to 50,000 others'last year. Ths order to quit work included all United Mine Workers east of the Mississippi river. Boyd'g Confirmation Advanced Boyd, who has served two year* while awaiting Senate confirmation. of his appointment by President Truman, said he would stay on the Job because "a fellow can't tack out of a fight while under fire and keep his self-respect" He lias received only five months' pay gince taking the job.- Senate leaders In Washington said the walkout made Boyd's confirmation almost certain. Sen. Joseph C. O'Mahoney. D., Wyo., chairman of the Interior committee . which, will meet today to consider the appointment, said the walkout "assured" Boyd of approval. The committee approved 10 to 1 the nomination of Dr. Boyd as Bureau of 'Mines director. Only Sen. Eugene D. Millikan, R., Colo., voted against the nomination, which Lewis had protested by ordering liis miners on a two- week demonstration, walkout starting last midnight. The committee, headed by Sen. Joseph. C. O'Mahoney, 'D., Wyo., postponed action on a bill that would remove the coal mine inspection division from the Bureau of Mines and make it an independent office In. the Interior department ' Charge lewis -with 'Intimidation The bill was introduced by Sen. Edwin C. .Johnson, D,, Colo. It» approval would be regarded as a partial victory for Lewis, who ha« contended that Boyd is not quall- lied to direct the mine safety program. Sen. Harry. F. Byrd, D., Va., accused Lewis of trying to "Intlmt- date" the Senate. Boyd, former dean of the Colorado School of Mines, said Lewis' criticism of him "may be a gen* eral attack" on Secretary of Interior: J. A. Krug, or "it may be that Mr. Lewis is piqued because he was not consulted on my appointment.'' Krug and Lewis have long been at odds. Joseph L. Moody, president of the Southern Coal Producers, said h* "had reason to believe" that Lewla may extend the walkout to cut coal stockpiles further to Improve the union's position .in. wage-contract negotiations beginning May 1. The union agreement - runs to June 30. Many miners throughout the coal fields already' had been laid off or were working reduced hours • because of the warm whiter weather which had cut coal consumption. The miners'-- annual two-weeks vacation Is scheduled to begin July 1.
