to o eo Pi n fa (-3 t i Jfegry oifejr Sfrre The embattled Long Island Rail Road got its first reprieve of the new year yesterday when the line's carmen promised to postpone their threatened strike for the next 60 and perhaps 90 days. Anthony F. D'Avanzo, general chairman of the 1,000-man unit f the Brotherhood of Railway Carmen, said at the Hotel Commodore that he would not take action because "there were unresolved issues that are of vital concern to employes of the railroad and its commuters." He pointed out that the union was legaUy free to take any job action at 12:01 a.m. today, the end of a 30-day cooling-off period. Urges Impartial Panel While rejecting the idea of presidential fact-finding in the dispute, D'Avanzo called for creation of an impartial panel to hold public hearings on the LIRR's labor problems. D'Avanzo proposed Nassau County Executive Eugene H. Nickerson and Suffolk Executive H. Lee Dennison as co-chairmen and said such a panel would give the union a reason to postpone strike action for the additional 30 days. The labor chief suggested that a state senator, one assemblyman each from Nassp.u and Suffolk and one commuter from each county be included in the panel The road immediately dismissed the proposal as a "publicity stunt" and an effort to turn a serious matter into a political football." "The LIRR is under the Rail way Labor Act and a public law board has been established by the National Mediation Board to settle the dispute," the line said. adding that D'Avanzo thus far had been unwilling to cooperate in the procedure. The Long Island put four of its new commuter cars on the Hempstead-New York run yes terday and reported they were running "reasonably on time," or within a sanctioned five minutes off schedule. Commuters, plagued by delays and cancellations since new schedules were put in effect Nov, 25, sported lapel buttons yester day, some of which read, "I hate the LIKE, LIKK Commuters or Cattle?" "Long Island Fail Road Commuter." and "Fire Ronan," if rA ;: i:-:-:v.-:-;-:-:-:.: gjj -s;: :-. i:v:-:v.-xX'.--$ a" jrAantMifcTa film it l I FOR FRIDAY AND SATURDAY LAVISH FULL-SKIN NATURAL MINK-FURRED WINTER COATS SALE 88 Regularly & Originally $110 to $130 Save up to $42 in this fabulous sa!e Elegant silhouettes!
