Lisa received a number of nice gifts, including a rubber bone, a rubber ball, a statuelte of a dachshund, puppy biscuits -and so on. There were toasts to the hope she'd grow up to be a. lady, also that she'd become the mother of 10 very very valuable puppies. There was a birthday cake for the people too. It was made by a caterer and iced the same way as Lisa's bran muffins. Around Ihe side it had a border of lillle brown candy dachshunds chasing each other.

Then Mix moved his lips and tongue and a voice croakeu: "Margaret Magec." Margaret Magec, a reporter, jumped back. So did everyone else.

What's the background? A. Lewis' miners struck i'or two months last spring when his contract with the mine owners ended and they refused his new demands. To get them going again, the ovcrnmenl sei/.ccl the mines and ignccl a contract with Lewis, ranting many of his demands. The government was to hold the nines until Lewis and the mine wners finally agreed on a con- ract. This they have not been blc to do. Q. How could the government eize private properly? A. Under a law passed by Con- jress in 1943 — the Smith-Connully Tel (Ihe War Labor Disputes act) — the government can seize a )laiU or mine where a shutdown nterferes wilh the war effort . This is strictly a wartime law, ^ood only so long as the war lasts. But we're slill at war, technically, .mlil Congress declares il ended. So, because we're at war, the gov- ernmenl's seizure holds good. Q. Whal then. A. In October Lewis decided he wanted to change the conlracl — wilh Ihe governmenl —under which his miners had been working since lasl May. He said he wanled to re-open il to make changes. Q. What did the government say? A. Interior Secrelary Krug was the government spokesman. He said Ihe contract could be opened only if bolh Lewis and the govern- menl wauled il lo be. Bui the government didn't want il re-opened. Therefore. Krug said, the con- lracl musl stand as is so long as the governmenl has the mines. Q. What did Lewis say? A. He said Krug was wrong, lhal the conlracl could be re-opened if he alone wanled il lo be. He said, in eit'eet, the contract could remain in force only so long as he, Lewis, wanled it to be. So, on Nov. 15 Lewis served notice on Krug that he would consider his contract with the govern- mcnt ended Nov. 20, which was last night, at midnight. Q. Wnat did this mean? A.

Not in so many words. Ever incc the Smith-Connally act was lassccl in l!)4li, Lewis has been areful nol lo say his miners were n slrike. When Ihey refuse to vor>\, he says simply Ihey don't vork withoul a conlracl. 11 has the amc cffocl as calling a slrike. (Under the Smith-Connally act myone calling a strike in a plant >cizcd by the government can be ailed.) Q. What did Krug do? A. He and other government of- icials went inlo iederal court Monday and asked Ihe judge lo issue an order to Lewis nol to end ia contract, or call it ended. The governmenl argued that ewis, by saying Nov. 15 the con- .racl ended last nighl, was break- ng his contract and was calling a strike in a government-seized mine, contrary lo the Smith-Connally act. Q. Whal did Ihe judge clo? A. He issued the order. In il the judge lold Lewis to lake back his statement of Nov. 15; to live up to the conlracl; and nol to encourage his miners to walk out. Q. What did Lewis clo? A. Nothing. Since he didn't tell them to forget what he said Nov. 15 about the contract ending last night, his miners slarted walking out of the mines even before yesterday. Q. Whal can happen to Lewis for nol obeying the court order? A. If the judge decides Lewis has disobeyed, he can hold him in contempt of court and jail or fine him. Lewis, of course, will have some arguments for his defense. Q. Can the eiourt order hope to get tho miners back io work? A. Hardly, withoul word from Lewis to go back. Tho 400,000 miners, being free men, can not bo compelled to work. They can say they are not striking but choose not lo work withoul a con- lracl. The court cannot act against 400,000 men.

Washburn Coal Mine Dilemma You Don't Know the Half of It • The soft coal mines arc closed, the governmenl has served a summons on John L. Lcwls-^and the world is wailing lo see whether the United Mine Workers chief goes lo jail. Mr. Lewis is lo appear in federal court Monday morning on a contempt citalion for refusing to withdraw his notice of contract termi- nalion—which led lo Ihe walkout of 400,000 miners. Bui the world is under no illusions about this drama. The government 5 may possibly put Mr. Lewis in jail. It would be an official face- saver, perhaps—but jailing Mr. Lewis won't gel any coal mined. If you've never heard aboul a dilemma, you're aboul to meet one. Prepare lo lislen: John L. Lewis is head man of an empire rivaling the power of the federal government itself. It enforces ils own loyally, collects its own taxes—and bows to none but Lewis. Favorable union-organi- zalion laws have contributed to J» this situation. Time was when all Lewis absolutely controlled, \yith his United Mine Workers union, was the anthracite (hard coal) fields of northeastern Pennsylvania. The long arm of the federal gov crnmenl had a hand in that, too. There was litlle organization among the miners unlil Ihe greal anthracite strike of 1902. Into that picture stepped President Theodore Roosevelt, a Republican, dictating an industrial peace treaty which gave the UMW control of anthra die mining— a closely grouped £ business in a few Pennsylvania counties. Lewis' battle to make the UMW dictator of soft as well as hare coal went on for a generation with indifferent success. For sofl coa was spread over many slalcs, anc mines had lo be organized every where if Ihe organization was bo made to slick anywhere. The sofl coal fields were no entirely organized, and Lewis did not allain supreme power, unlil Ihe coming of President Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, and all*|- embracing union-organization laws. Now for the dilemma: The gov- ernmenl has to do something in this crisis, else the people will go cold and hungry—cold for lack of fuel in Ihe Northern stales, hungry as dwindling industrial fuel supplies force factories to shut down. But if Ihe government puts Lewis in'jail it may only succeed in making him a martyr to his 400,000 followers, I think thal's what Lewis expects—and wants. Where do we "go from here? Well, the coal strike is perilously '^> close to being ,a general strike— and n general strike' is ''a revolt against government itself. The courts and public opinion in both the United Stales and England have always held that a general strike is the one deadline not even organized labor dared cross. A general strike smashed the Labor government of Ramsey MacDonald in England Iwo decades ago. Yet there is no way of handling Lewis righl now lo compel tho miners to go back to work, except as the hardships of Ihe people and f t an aroused public opinion put V pressure on the local district mine unions. The seal of all Ihis trouble runs back lo some of the excessive lawmaking thai has been done in the congress in the last decade. The situation calls, nol for injunctions, court Irials and jail senlenccs, but amending or repeal of Ihe basic law by which Lewis was able to build himself up lo a posilion where he was, in facl, stronger than the president or the congress, or bolh combined—which he actually 1 is. ' * * * BY JAMES THRASHER Prospects for Political Harmony It was not surprising lhal Republican congressmen gave a friendly reception to President Truman's offer of co - operation, his pledge of faith with faith, and his promise to meet good will with good will. For Mr. Truman has seemed to retain his personal pouularity with his former GOP colleagues. Their chief criticism has been ol Mr. Truman as executor of Presi- <fc dent Roosevell's legislative legacy 1 and even more so of Mr. Truman as the political ally of leftish liber als and of the powerful labor lead ers who gave Mr. Roosevelt sucl strong support. But they haven' fell perlicularly bitter toward Hairy Truman, the affable erstwhile junior senator from Missouri. So the possibility of Capilal White House harmony, which seems s dent's attitudes and sympathies a possibile change of Ihe Presi- cleiH's alliludes and sympathies as a rcsull of Ihe recent elections.

And while he has been his own President, mak known to have favpred. This is par- cisioiis, he has tried to promote ina his own 'appointments and de- licularly Irue in domcslic mailers'. Largely for that reason the labor leaders who supported Mr. Roosevell have sluck to Mr. Truman. f,, And Mr. Truman has stuck to them, r For, unlil Nov. 5, Ihose labor leaders — especially Ihose connected wilh Ihe PAC — headed a politically powerful group thai he could nol afford lo offend. But the CIO —PAC isn't as formidable as it was before the elections. Only 73 candidates who received ils blessing were win ners in Ihe race for 318 eonlestec House seals.

As the Big-Four foreign ministers council would up its third week of peace-making sessions, this was the langled diplomatic situation: 1.
