The minor leagues concluded their formal scssiohs late yesterday, concurring after an exchange of notes with the majors on a new major-minor agreement effective for five years starting Jan. 12, 1947. Of particular interest on today's agenda was the resolution by the Pacific Coast League asking recognition as a major league. Most observers were confident the petition would get a gentle but firm thumbsdown reply. Further discussions were scheduled on the player pension plan, with the players' two representatives, Dixie Walker and Johnny Murphy, still on deck for conferences. Both major circuits agreed that the Chicago Cubs will be the host club for the annual All-Star game July 8, and left the lid off on the number of night games each club Little Rock, Helena in Grid Playoff By The Associated Press Little Rock's "terrific Tigers" and the Helena-West Helena Indians will lock forces for the 194t Arkansas high school foolbal championship eilhcr next Friday night or Saturday afternoon.

In the five weeks immediately following draft suspension , the number of volunteers dropped to 27,384, of which 24,675 were from civil life and 2,610 from prior service. Washington, Dec. 7 —(IP)— Waller Johnson 59, former Kansan and one-time American League fire- bailer who has been gravely ill in a Georgetown hospital since lasl April, look n "decided turn for the worse" early today. The relapse was reported by officials of the hospital where the "Big Train" has been under treatment for a brain tumor. Johnson's physician, who lefl the hospital aboul midnight, confirmed the sel- back, but declined to elaborate. Johnson, a right-hander with a blazing fireball, cnlcrcd the big leagues in 1907 with the Washington senators. Twenty-one years later—and still with the senators—Johnson hung up his glove with a record of 413 wins and 280 losses.

Spear-heading the back-to-work movement by the 400,000 United Mine Workers were the diggers in Pennsylvania and West Virginia which have about one-half of the soft coal miners. Early reports from these fields showed miners generally obeyed John L. Lewis rder to return to work, although ull production may nol be reached icfore Tuesday or .Wednesday. In Ihe coal-rich Piltsburgh area inly a couple large mines were .eporled idle and unionisls explained work would be resumed al hese as soon as the official work lotice had been received from he union. Among the mines re-opening were captive-pits of such steel corporations as U. S. Steel, Jones & aughlin and Republic Steel. Fuel was sorely needed by in- cluslry and to warm homes and schools across the country. The back-to-work movement, which came afler nearly 300,000 other workers had been idle and er, Lewis told them there should/J "be no hesitation" about getting back to the pits. <, t .j In cancelling the strike after in-, j dicating time and again that he* planned a fight to the finish, Lewis, gave these reasons: 1. The Supreme Court, in consid-^ ering the contempt conviction' and possibly whether the miners had a 1 right to void their contract with thej government, should, be "free from public pressure superinduced by the hysteria and frenzy of an economic crisis." 2. "Public necessity requires the quantitative production of coal during such period." ' Lewis beat his unexpected re- Ireal even as President Truman was at work 9n a bare-knuckle/ radio speech which he had planned to deliver last night. Mr. Truman cancelled the talk when he received word the strike was over, but he made-no comment. Swiftly the government stripped away most of the series of emergency orders which had been invoked to save coal. Out went the freight, express and embargoes, the slash passenger travel, and parcel post in railroad, except in parts. "I don't believe American official they are,' told me, one "bul ihey do have some very able men. I think one reason is that the talented Russian regards it as a fine promotion and a splendid opportunity tq work in Germany instead ' is exacllj e'verse. 'He thinks he can do belter and get ahead faster a 1 home. That's true, too. and that's, our real trouble in gelling nioix top men." few areas nearly out of fuel the 21-stale dimout. The capitol dome glistened under floodlights again. The Solid Fuels Administration is continuing for a while its controls over soft coal shipments, but conditions under which supplies are doled oul to essential users have been eased, Like the rest of the nation, members of Congress heaved a sigh of i-elief over the end of the strike, but some of them made jt clear they slill intend to press for new labor legislation. Mentioning Lewis by name, Sentor, Lucas CD-Ill) proposed that IB new Congress investigate labor rganization to determine whether ny of their leaders wields "auto- ralic power." Lucas told a reported he wants o find out "which of these oganir ations complete economic paralysis was threatened, slarled yesterday al three small Ohio pils. Clean-up crews and shifls ol "cal-eyc" cutters worked through the night at many mines to ready them lor the 6 a. m. shift today- the first operations in 18 days. President John P. Busarello of UMW District 5, embracing Pills burgh, said 92 percenl of his 26,000 miners votcu to return. "They're plenty sore over the Oil Dealers Plan Session Dec. 10 at Little Rock Plans have been completed for an oil dealers' convention at Litlle Rock Tuesday, December 10, and M. S. Bales, local chairman, urged all dealers of Hempstead lo allend. Principal speakers will be Governor Laney, Senator McClellan Lt. Governor, Nathan Gordon and C. J.

Senator Buller (.R-Neb) said sMi ewis' aclion "shows good judg-c*1 nent as well as a patriolic spirit," •ml he added il should not deter : Congress from aws. passing new labor aw deal we gol from the govern nent," Busarello said, "but they are going back because Lewis re [uested them to go back." William Hayncs, UMW chief ii Uniontown, Pa., coal fields, sai all pits there are expected back i operation within two days, "be cause the union and miners sti are squarely behind Lewis and a ways will be." The miners generally were calm .md quiet as they prepared to go :>ack to work. But m^ny echoed .he words of one Library, Pa., dig- >er who moaned: "I hate to go back with nothing to show but three weeks' lost pay. And we'll probably have to do it all over again next April." Calling off the walkout, dramatically announced by Lewis at a news conference Saturday, hailed a rising tide of unemployment and ended drastic dim-outs over more than a score of states. Railroads, steel and other oft coil Lewis ordered his men back to the mines under terms of the same contracl wilh the government i which he declared void Nov. 15 — five days before the start of the strike. He said coal production would continue until April 1, but this does not necessarily mean another strike at thai lime. Meanwhile, Lewis added, the union "will be willing to negotiate new wage agreement :'or ihe bituminous industry with such ] parties as may demonstrate their , authority to do so, whether it be ' '* an alphabetical agency of the United Stales government or the] Associated coal operators. . o New County Home Demonstration Agent Takes Over Mary Dixon assumed duties this week as the Hempstead County Home Demonstration Agent, it was announced, replacing Miss Cora Lee Westbrooke.
