Their appeal Is to Roger Putnam, economic stabilization director, who has authority to overrule board decisions. Associates of Lewis have mads it plain that he expects the full pay raise will be approved In'« day or two. Also present at last night's meeting were Harry M. Moses, president of the Bituminous Coal Operators Association, who speaks tor Northern and Midwestern mine owners, and lop government officials. • .' , ' The meeting was called in an effort to reach a settlement of the wnlkout. precipitated when the Wage Stabilization Board ruled Oct. 1 that,miners could receive only 51.50.of th'e:$1.90-a-day raise Lewis had negotiated with management. Truman said In a statement that Moses pledged the mine Owners would pay the miners returning to work the $1.50 increase and would set nsldc the disputed '40' cents for payment to miners .when and if the government says it's'all right. It seemed perfectly clear that Lewis'expected the governemnt to reverse the wage board's stand and okay the full $1.90 raise. ^ After the formal meeting, Truman took .the union leader on a personally conducted lour of the recently refurnished White House.

It's to be all very business-like. ; What,Ark-Mo plans to do late this afternoon ., tit may already have happened^ b'efore you read this) Is "blow out" their main gas transmission line. This Is the big line that begins at Campbell, Mo., and extends to Blythe- vllle. "Blowing out" the line consists of building up ttir pressure in the pipe to some 300 pounds per square inch and then suddenly releasing It. The escaping air cleans out dirt and debris that got Into the line during installation. '. ; ' When th'is 300 pounds pressure Is released suddenly, it causes a loud, explosive noise. This noise will be most pronounced at the west edge of the city near the air base road, where tlie line terminates. There will be only .one blast. Exact time -of the "blow-out" could not be determined, as crews began this job at Campbell and are working their way to Blytheville. The line Is cleaned In this manner a section at a time along the route. Since a crew will be stationed at the site of the "blow out, 1 ' there Is no chance of anyone betng too near when it happens. Ark-Mo officials said this represents the last step in bringing gas to Blythevllle. "H will be only a matter of days until gas Is turned on here," they said.
