If actually put Into effect, the ban could cripple the tuition's vital rearmament and export drives. In view of the threat to Britain's shaky I economy, however, the Rovertimrnt was expected to Intervene w itti ar _ bltrtttlcm proposals. The i)iti>Minn may be rtiscii.wd itt a meeting of the Cabinet lodny. Ran Is Approved The proposed ban was appiowd by the Executive Council of the Confederation of Shipbuilding and Engineering Unions, a group of 38 unions Involved in the manufai--' lure of ships, airplanes, ninomu- I burs, machine tools and other engineering products. The council described the ban a.s a protest against the. ilat rejeclloi by employers of union demands fo a genera] weekly wage Increase of two pounds iSS.CO). This would have l;cen an increase of about 20 per cent for the lowest scale workers. Council Only Advisory 'Hie council, however, can act only in an advisory rapacity.

Southern Coal Operators Toy With Okaying Plan of Lewis WASHINGTON' IT! — Southern coal operators, appeared today to be loylng with the idea of Koiiift along with John L. Lewis' share- the-work plan. They didn't say yes, and ()roy didn't say no after discussing the plan at a meeting of (he Southern Coal Operators Association's directors yesterday. They instructed their chief negotiator, Joseph E. Moody, to K° ahead with bargaining in an effort (o reach an agreement with Lewis' United Mine Workers before their contract expires on Sept. 30. Leaving tho matter open for further discussion, as they did, indicated the Southern owners may be attracted to the Lewis plan particularly u it Is coupled with only R modest pay boost for the miners. Lewis wants employment more evenly distributed among his 320,000 union members In the soft coal "industry. Some now work as few as (woI days a week, others as nianv as five. Lewis has suggested penalty pay of lime-iiml-onc-lmlf for a fourth clay's work, double time for a fifth ,-l.iy's work. With (lie demand for coal now fairly light, tbe mines working lull lime are mostly known as "captives." whose output goes to sleel companies, utility firms and railroads. Most of these "captives" nre In Northern states, so the Southerners feel they might get a bigger share of the coal market under Ihe Lewis plan. That's because the owners of the "captive" mines would have to buy coal from them to avolrt the penalty pay. For that reason, the' Northern operators are cool toward tho share -the-work plan. Lewis may hold another bargaining session wllh the Southern operators today. The union had a meeting, loo. with Die anthracite opcni- lors, from whom Lewis wants Si-cater contributions for his union welfare fund. »AT, WIT.

"Oh, sure, we tell Ihe world of our Industrial and economic achievements. We tell them cold statistics about our country consuming two thirds of the world's oil, but It's going to take more than idle statistics.
