The p|, 0 ,, ' WCre nov '«» re8:1 "' to sa ' ploycs who struck Jan. 34. The last scheduled /light of the company arrlvrd at Newark, N. J., airport at I ,,.,„. yesterday and Ihe pilots said they wouldn't take up were "T" p!alles unltl &"*»"«* In Chicago, David [,. Rehncke, president of the Ah- Lines Pilot Association (APL1. said the walkout was called after two "almost unanimous strike vote.?". He said the voles climaxed two years of poor pilot-maxagemcnt relations. A spokesman (or the airline, which operates between New York Now Orleans and Ihe Florida resort area, said the strike "was calculated to do as much damage lo Ihe company as passible by intimating the planes are not safe. Behncke \voH knows this U an untruth. The CAA inspects and approves for flight, every craft that Rocs on Ihe line." Strike Has Two Causes Behncke said the strike stemmed from two principal causes: "in- creasng apprehension on Ihe part of the pilots about, /lying planes whose safety aspects, from a standpoint of maintenance, were open to serious and alarming doubt," and an unsettled grievance over the discharge of a pilot more than two years ago. The union and the company have been operating under a truce since Noy. 12. 1947. hi order to Kivc the National Mediation Board a chance to settle the latter griev- I ance. ' The pilots said no wage dispute involved In the strike. National Airlines spokesmen said it was "(he foulest strike the pilots ever pulled." They described It as •'« .smokescreen for Ihe real motives." • ! "Tlie principal reason I., the more i than two-year-old discharge of a > pilot who was found responsible for an accident." a spokesman said. 'He was found so by eve, v tn- : vestigating body up to the CAA The pilots have been trying to force us to re-hire him and arc i now taking an advantage of an Is- ' sue they are afraid to submit to i arbitration." I Showdown Court j Pot-tie on Phone i Rate Hikes Seen \ ATLANTA. Ga.. Scb. 4, < UP) — | The Georgia Public Service Com- i mission was scheduled to complete j iis arguments today in a showdown court battle with the Southern Bell Telephone Company over the commission's authority to regulate telephone rates tn the state. Yesterday counsel for the commission asked a three-judge panel to slap down "the almighty Southern Bell Company" in its effort to by-pass a commission order blocking full-scale rate hikes. Frank Clement of Nashville. Tenn.. special attorney appearing for the commission, told the court the firm is a monopoly and has no right to fix its own rate.?. The company asked the commission for pernmioii to boost its rates to bring in some S3.7fla,000 in added revenue :n Georgia to meet risir.i- costs. After 15 months of investigation and 23 days of hearings, the commission granted, only 37 per cent of the requested rate increases.
