Arbitration was tlbjusscd at a 3 1-2 hour bargaining conference with conciliation officials last night. An offer to arbitrate "base rate wages" and certain other features of the wage dispute was made by representatives ot the American Telephone & Telegraph Co. Tlic offer was rejected as "too limited" by President John J. Moran of the American Union of Telephone Workers and the bargaining agent for long-distance line workers. Moran protested that the company was unwilling to allow an arbitrator to grant a wage boost on Ihc basis of increased living costs. He said the union was willing to arbitrate its particular wage dispute "but with no strings attached." Both the company and the union agreed to continue their nego- ' tiations this morning.
