However, last night's action of he Education Committee Is subject to approval of the Chamber's Board of Directors since the latter group has not had the opportunity :o approve the committee. Payment Voluntary Chamber president Alvin Huffman, jr.,-pointed out that school and power company officials emphasized the necessity to expedite the project since customers are slated to get their refunds in the form of credit on bills to be made up within the next two weeks. "Payment of the money to the school board will be entirely voluntary on the part of our customers," Ark-Mo President James Hill, Jr., said today. "We have assured the board that the company will cooperate in every way possible to reach the individual customer and give him the opportunity of assigning his refund to the project," he..stated.

He indicated the campaign will get underway Monday. Pit Strikes Hit 3 New Sfeel Firms' Unexplained Walkouts By Soft Coa!

PITTSBURGH, Jan. . 10—Wt— Valkouts by soft coal miners today pread to three more steel com- aanies which operate coal pits. A- out 57,000 diggers are idle in seven tates In the unexplained walkouts. At least 30,000 Western Pennsyl- 'ania miners now are idle. About r ,200 stopped work at "captive," or non-commercial mines this morn- ng. The number of idle Alabama niners rose from 5,000 to S.OOO. In Virginia, 2,300 striking miners returned to work. That left only 250 still out at one mine. The seven reopened mines* are owned by the 31lnchfield Coal corporation. About '0 men at one. Kentucky mine resumed work, leaving 5,000 still out. Miners failed to show up on the second day of the strike at some rits owned by the Jones and Laughlin Steel Corporation. Wheeling Steel Corporation and Bethlehem Steel orporation. Industry sources think (here's ittle chance of a general return to work before Monday. The nation's coal niilKrs now are working only Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays on orders of John I,. Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers. Strikers Drm'l Know Why Many ot the idle miners don't even know why they arc not working. The operators say the walkout Is another effort to needle them Into signing a new- conirnct. The strike began yesterday morning. UMW officials denied the action was ordered by union headquarters. By nightfall scores of mines were empty in Pennsylvania. West Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, Virginia, Ohio and Utah. Some miners — those who were willing to talk with outsiders about it—said the .strike was decided on at meetings of their UMW locals. Other miners said their locals held no meetings; they're ju.st slaying away from the mines because "that's the healthy thing to do when there's & strike on." It's not a nationwide strike. Some Industry sources said the walkout probably will end without warning, just as it began. They termed it a planned policy of harassment which will continue to strike at random — here today, somewhere else next week. No full scale work stoppage is expected. That might crcato the "emergency" required for government intervention under the Taft- Harlley law. represented ;.the ^Farrn^ Bureau it 'welcoming''the guests'.

Cornell WASHINGTON, Jan. 10— (At'}—A Congressional economy clamor grew lovulev today around President Truman's §42.000,000,000 out-of- balnnce budget. Nearly all tlie Senators and iloii.so members were saying openly or behind their hands that .spcndiiiK will bo too high, the deficit, will be loo big and they ought to get out the ax and go to work on the budget. Yet 111 years past all that talk of economy in January often has turned out to be still Just that in June— still just talk. And some lawmakers arc aware that this year's economy ciunpatisu also could turn out to be more talk thou action. Senator Aikcn (U-Vt) summed up that ix)lnt of vinv/: "I hud been anticipating a deficit. And It is going to be difficult to pare it any in thl.s election year. Wo may tie able to make some reduction but not to any great extent." Nor were there any loud calls for a hefty tax increase, or even for the "moderate" one Mr. Truman keeps asking for. A tax lx>ost would help blot out some of the t5,lS3,000,- 000 In red ink that's in prospect for the year starting next July 1. Sentiment seemed to be running the other v.',iy, toward a cut in taxes, If anything. Deficit May I!c fliggcr Furthermore, it looks as if that $5.133,000,000 deficit might be bigger than Mr. Truman counted on. He based his estimate partly on an Idea that Congress would up mall rales by 1395,000,000.

Favor Onr-IIill System The direct way Is to use tlv- knife on appropriations, either in committees or on senate nnd House floor's.

The Senate Appropriations Committee already has voted to try the one-bill .system. Chairman Cannon (D-Mo) of the House committee- would like to go along.
