Strikes Plague Britain With Election Near Stocks Show Mixed Trend At Close .Mrs. Max Hess Phone 111 .->-11-1 LONDON*, May 4 (JP— Wildcat strikes against two nationalized industries — coal and transport—1 harassed Britain today with a general election only three weeks, away. Both sets of strikers de-1 manded more money. Sixty thousand miners have been made idle in 33 pits in the vast) Yorkshire coal fields by an unofficial strike of 5,600 filleis — men who feed the conveyer belts. A Communist - fomented strike halted half of London's 5,744 buses during the morning rush hour, but by afternoon half of the 15,000 strikers were hack on the job and the return to work movement was continuing. The stoppages reflected trade union unrest over rising living costs. Although ihe Conservative government statistics show wages have risen as fast as the cost of living, many Laboiiles argue that the benefits of the boom have been spread unevenly, with the investor classes getting a proportionately greater share. Britain votes May 26. NEW YORK, May 4 ?> — The stock market wavered today between a lower and a higher trend, hut at the close it was slightly higher.
