XLIII—NO. 217 BlythevWe Dally Neva Blythcvllle Courier Blythcvllle Herald Mississippi Valley 111,YTHKVIMJO,'ARKANSAS, THUUSDAY, DKCKiMBKK r >, I'.IKi SINGLR COl'IES FIVE CENTS President to Address Nation Sunday Night On Crisis Over Coai By RAYMOND I.AIIK Untied 1'ress Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Dec. 5. (U.P.) — President Truman on Sunday night will address the nation on the .soft coal .strike which, the government stiid today, ha.s brought the country to "the very brink of economic paralysis." The White House announced lhatfc— , '. the President, entering the arena ol the coal crisis publicly for the first time, will make a full-dress broadcast to the i>eopte al 0:30 p.m. EST Sunday. If the coal strike has not ended by that time-and there wire no indications it would be—the President will go over the head of John L. Lewis and ask the miners to go buck to work. Tlic Solid Fuels Administration, jincamvhile. said the 15-day-old mine shutdown "has placed tins nation at the very brink of cco- K '.lomlc paralysis and threatens unit jireccdeiitcd hardships and sullcr- ii»K during the winter." President 'Pruman's decision to speak out publicly after remaining silent during the first 15 days ol the strike underscored the gravity of the situation described by Deputy Solid Fuels Administrator Dan H. Wheeler. In a communication to 36 state governors, Wheeler called on them to lake the "most stringent measures to conserve coal Immediately." Wheeler asserted that the fuel crisis is I.Vr more serious even than those caused by coal strikes during the war. He said that "every corn- mimTiy is faced with !he possibility of having insufficient coal to preserve its health." lie tolrl authorities to alert themselves against coal hoarders. Such hoarding, he said, can be dealt with under llic penalty provisions of the second war powers act. President Truman decided to ap- ..... — peal to the people after government fire Damages Garage efforts t<T break the strike by resort to the courts Ijad been rebuffed by an angry Lewis and his UnitccVMhie Workers (AFL). The TinfOn's response lo the government's legal assault was to dig In for an all-out fight in Ihc courts and a bitter-end strike ir. the coal fields. Convicted of contempt .-of co.urt lor "f Ion tin? : im' order " to 'caricei the walkout of 400,000 soft coal miners, the UMW was fined $1,600,CCO aiuT lewis $10,000 by Judge T. Alan Goldsborough yesterday. They will appeal to the Supreme Court. WlfTft House Press Secretary diaries G. Ross said President Truman will speak over all networks Sunday for about 20 minutes. His address, Koss said, will concern "the situation growing out of the coiil strike.'' I What the President says will ric- ' pcnd almost entirely on the status of the coal crisis at the time spsvks. Ross said Mr. Truman ha.s not started the actual drafting ot his speech, but is thinking about it "ver yhad." He said the President would take more than 20 minutes if ncceSaty. Between now and Sutidav night Ivfr. Tniman is expected lo consult frequently with Attorney General Tom Clark, Secretary ol Interior J. A. Krug and the presidential stall. The last time Mr, Truimii t'.ep- pcd into an industrial crisis witi a radio address, he broadcast to Congress and Ihc nation at the same time. That was when he voiced determination to use troops, ii necessary to end last June's paralysing railroad strike. j As. the President spoke on thr.i j occasion, announcement was mace ' lliat the strike had ended, j There was no indication that : any such announcement would be forthcoming to interrupt the President's speech this time. Dack-to-work appeals and "ciders" directed to the miners by the late President Roosevelt during strikes in 1943 were a tumble failure. Lewis and the miners ignored them and the union pren- (lent refused even to appear before the War Labor Board until Congress gave it power to MID- lonnally Insists On Writing War Bans Into Treaty Molotov of Russia Argues That Merc Resolution Enough LAKK SUCCKSS. N. Y.. Dee. b. IUP) The United States and Prance argued agninsl Russia loday that world disarmament must be undertaken through international treaties a.s a United Nations snD- conur.itiee met to write a plan tor scrapping weapons ol war.

Tom Connally. IV. Tex., aiv Ambassador Alexandrc Paroih lo France said thill cacli nation inns follow ils own constitutional pro cesses in adhering to a disarmament pact. Connally pointed ou again that in tlic case ot the U. t> any such pact would have lo b ratified "a two-thirds vole of Ihc Senate'. Sir Hartley Shawcross of th United Kingdom also joined Con nally and Parodi in supporting the idea of a disarmament treaty. "II is almost essential, il there is lo be no doubl by any country as -o the obligatory character ol the scheme. Hint il would be embodied in El convention," Shawcross said. "The existence of a convention will fortify nn edict ol the security council and leave no doubt at all as to its obligatory character."

President Truman's decision to enter the arena publicly in an effort to cope with the' fuel crisis did not. It wa.s said, indicate any change in tlic government's legal tactics against Lewis and Uie UMW.

There W as nothing in the record to Indicate that the government would not. consider. In a second contempt case, asking n jail term for tlic UMW chief. Meanwhile. Lewis' men throughout the coal fields pledged s»'P- porl for him and defiance for the government.. In Washington, the union prepared to show Its disdain for the heavy fine assessed by Golrtsbo- rougli by posting bonds In the full amount. At the same time, both union - gpvermneul counsel started preptratJOB ot arguments to be "s'nppeal to the Su- pbssibly next week, ^aprceablr to both slltrs, is for thr union to appeal j to the court of appeals for the District of Columbia and then lor counsel to ask the Supreme Court to take immediate jurisdiction. Legal authorities said it was possible that the appeal might reach the high court on Monday. Meanwhile', some government circles were anxiously awaiting general labor reaction to the contempt penalties assessed against Lewis and the UMW. This reaction was expected to cryslali7.e over the weekend. Many union organizations customarily hold meetings on Sunday. Mr. Truman lias been beseigcd by proposals that he by-pass the embattled Lewis with an appeal direct to the miners. The President- also has been urged, notably by Srn. William F. Knowland. n.. cal.. to reopen the mines and man them with volunteers. There was no indication lhal Mr. Truman planned lo go thai far. Thus far Mi'. Truman ha.s been content- to direct the government campaign against Lewis from the White House without making any public statement. The lact lhat he will now enter the arena publicly did not indicate any change in the government's legal strategy against the union, it was said. Tlie $3.500,000 line against the UMW and the $10,000 penally | against Lewis were ordered by Federal Judge T. Alan Gok'>">- rotigh yesterday in a courtroom session Hint had lew parallels lor sheer drama and color. Injunction -Viatic Termaucnt Besides levying the fines, the judge signed an injunction replacing the previous strike restraining order which Lewis and the union ignored with the resulting penalties. If they ignore the new injunction, they could be brought into new- contempt proceedings. The present fines arc being staved pending appeal. Tlic case could reach the Supreme Court in about two weeks if the government asks that Ihc circuit courts be bypassed to speed a decision. UMW attorneys promised Ij'at the formal notice ol appcrj and Iwnd for Lewis would be riled bv 3 p.m. today. They made no dei'n- ite commitment on posting bond to guarantee payment of the $3.500.000 fine in case the appeal was lost. Unless that bond is posted by then, however, the fine will not be suspended pending appeal. The governmenl could obtain a court order to collect the fines from the union's assets or ils $13.500.000 treasury, which includes more than $7.000.000 in U. S. and Canadian government bonds. While declaring his friendship lor organized labor, Goldsborough suggested the UMW dispute might otter the choice between destruction of the union and preservation ol the U. S. government. In lhal case, he said, Ihe "republic going io he preserved." \ Annexation Matter Set For Hearing A petition lor the anncxiiLioi to the City ol Blythcvillc of Braw ley and Cook Additions has bee lilcd irr the office of the Cotinl Court Clerk.

(U.P.V- Roving bands of pickets raced through, the Western Pennsylvania coal fields loday as striking United Mine Workers sought to close f.uip mines which continued to operate. State police said 20 automobiles filled with miners appeared In the Imperial District.

Dec. 5.—I UP I— This is the story of five falefnl hours in which Judge T. Alan Goldsborough uavc John L. Lewis n lasl chrincc to settle Ihc coal strike. It Is il story of hinted overtures', minim: telephone wires and cniii- st consultations in high govern- nent oil ices mid union quarters. As far as settling the strike was oncerned, II all canu 1 to naught. t culled with the government and .ewis each more determined than ever to stand their ground and ad- nil no compromise. Pieced together [mm numerous sources, this i,s what happened be- ween 10 a.m. ye.slcrtlaj—the hour originally .set for sentencing Lewis —and 3 p.m. when tho die cast with fines lor Ixjwin and his union. Promptly at 10, Judge Goldsborough met in his chambers with attorneys [or Lewis and for llic government. They had been Instructed to give him then lliclr recommcmliilloiiK for sentences tor the union and Lewis. Aflcr some preliminary sparring the judge asked whether the strike couldn't be ended. One of Ihe miners' attorney^ AFIj Counsel Joseph A. Padwi( went Inlo a private courthbttll huddle with Lewis. He return* with word lo the clfect thai Lcwl» tt'iis rcAely to talk with Ihe gov eminent — immediiatcly, in live minutes or any lime or place the government Mtggesled. Partway suggested the senlcnc- ng be d'cferrcd until 3 p.m.. with in apparent implication lhat somc- hlng might be done by then. : Assistant Attorney General John •\ Sonnclt, ttic government's 34•car-old flel<l marshal at the court, elephoned these developments to Attorney General Tom Clark. Back went the word which Sonnctt rc- aycd to Padway in the Judge's chamber; '"Let him piu Ins men back to work and then we'll decide whether to talk or not." Eonnell also was instructed to try to sound oul partway more specifically on what he had in mind. Tlicrc were further exchanges as the clork moved toward noon, more telephoning. Padway at one point inquired what altitude tlic judge would take on Ihe sentences If the strike were called off. 'flic Union attorney did not. however, make any specific proposal, offer, promise or deal -just lhal Lewis was willing to talk with the government. Upshot of il was that the gincrn- tuciil attorneys decided not to oppose the union suggestion lhal sentences be deferred until 3 o'clock. After the courthouse conference j broke up at noon, there were important huddles among government ollicials. But If any of them had any idea of making overtures lo Lewis, Uicy were squelched. The government—in complete Hue with President Truman's instructions — sat back to wait lor Lewis lo act. Some federal officials were convinced he would give in before 3. How Ihe talk went In that union meeting Is not known. Perhaps Lewis hoped for a government overture. Perhaps he couldn't believe the government would go through with its recommendations for a big fine. In any event. Ihc principals all returned lo Judge Golclsborouc.h •* chambers shortly before 3. TV" union attorneys reported in effect thai they had nothing furlUcr I" say and were ready to go ahead with the sentencing procedure.
