It has been traditional that the diggers formally await official word from Lewis, himself, before they return, Throughout the coal fields the reaction of the miners is the same. They're alt happy to go to work on a full five-day week Again, something they haven't experienced since Lewis began calling periodic work stoppages last June 30. Some miners grumbled a bit about the length of time it took to get a new contract and the money It cost the dlgger.s in wages. A veteran miner at Harmarville, Pa., declared: "I guess Lewis knows what he is doing but it is going to take an awfully long time to make up what we've lost. "Sure we get a 70-cent—day increase but look at the number of days we've been out or work." Few of the miners have made as much as $100 this year arid they lost up to $1500 in wages during 1W9.
