t: g-XAITCATEfK NEWS (CONN.). SATURDAY, nKC. J), IIHJI DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Small Goal Operators Close Down Mines Rather Than Sign Up With John L. Lewis Under Pressure • New York's Water Crisis May Prove Blessing In Disguise : Officers' Clubs Sell Package Liquor Despite Restrictions. ' V, as hi rig-ton — John L. Lewis ha? denounced with considerable the new contracts signed by Independent Coal Mines and his union. Bi.-t he has not announced—in fact, doesn't want known —the tactics used to get these small companies to .>ign new contracts. I" at le.-'.si two cases, Lewis clos- c-d dc.vr. minos completely, not i-ven permitting, them a 3-dav we~k, because they refused his terms. The mines in question are the Cove Fork Coal Company and the famous Elkhorn Coal Company, both in Pike County. Kentucky. A sworn affidavit by Jack Pic- Kiesirrer and Fon M Johnson, operators of the mines states: • \Vf were called to attend a mec-tintr at the United Mine Workers' Headquarters of the trurk mine opr>ratons on December 2. J&-1P at six o'clock. We attended ar.d Srim Caddy, President cf Unit<-d Mine "Workers. District 30, proposed that we sipn a contract with the mine workers which was to extend to Sjptomber I, 1951. "A part of the terms were disclosed to us. Included in the terms about which we \vero told was a 95-cents per day increase in wages, a 15-cents per ton increase in the welfare payments, and a broadening and alteration of the •willins and able' clause which we were told was to enable the mine workers to control the production of the various- mines in the country to prevent an overproduction of coal." Sarr. Caddy. Lewis's rcprp.scnt.a- tiv.said in substance, according to the affidavit, -that we would oe able to operate five days a •veek and get our own price for tno coal, as the other mines would not produce sufficient coal to meet t.Ti demand." The most amazing- part of the negotiations, however, was that the mine operator.? were not shewn a copy of the proposed contract but were expected too po to U .-lih.'ntrton and sign any contract presented tc the&i there. "We were not to have n. copy (of vh~ contract) and were to agree to ;:-.- terms presented to us without. c-.-.ii-j.-c-s." the affidavit states.

LaMotta Indignant Over New York AC's Fight-Or-Ese Order (By United Press) Middleweight champion Jake La- Motta is doing plenty of complaining about the New York Athletic commlHHlon'.H order to sign for a titlo hotit by Feb. 1 or vacate the Lix Motta aaya the commission is "trying to make another football out of me." Jake refuses to explain his "football'" remark, but boxing observers believe La Motta means the commission is cracking down on him for '-political publicity" purposes. The middleweight champ does charge tho commission in singling him out from other long-idle champions. "What about Freddie Mills?" asks La Motta. "The Englishman won the light heavyweight title a year and a half ago and still hasn't defended it. Why didn't they jump on him?" Jake wants to know. La Motta says if the commission does declare his title vacant he'll defend outside New York state. Jake apparently doesn't believe the National' Boxing association will take away his crown. N-B-A Com- misioner Abe Greene says he'll decide "within a week" what to. do about La Motta's request to wait until June before defending. Boxer Suffers Brain Injury In Bout At Madison Sq.

Osmanski Expected To Be Dropped By Holy Cross Next Week Worcester, Mass., Dec. 31—(UP) —The future football coaching pic- tu/o at Holy Cross college probably will be decided next week. And it looks as though Bill Osmanski will not be the football coach in 1960. The Very Rev. John O'Brien, president of the college, soys a formal announcement will be made by the middle of next week. He says Athletic Director Eugene Flynn will set the exact time of the announcement. Osmanski's 1949 season included just one victory in 10 games. It ended with a 73-to-nothing wallop^ ing by arch rival Boston college. Speculation has centered on several posible successors to Osmanski in the event that he fails to return. Among these has been former Holy Cross grid mentor, E|r. Eddie Anderson, current football coach at the University of Iowa.

The outstanding stars of the 1949 season swing- into action in the 12th annual Blue-Gray game at Montgomery, Alabama and in the East-West shrine game on the west coast. The Gray team, representing the south, is a one touchdown (seven and one-half point choice) over the westerners. The Blue-Gray game shapes up as a passing, duel. Southern Coach Blair Cherry of Texas had counted on Chuck Hunsinger of Florida and Jack Cloud of William and Mary to handle the ground attack. That plan was shelved when Hunsinger came down with the flu and Cloud re-injured his knee. Blair now has to rely on the passing of Auburn's Travis Tidwell and Paul Canxpibell of Texas. The northern team a!so has eapable pas»ers in Bernie Krueger of Illinois and Mel Olix of Miami of Ohio. The southerners have won six of the 10 games played between the college teams.
