Under the Taft-Hartley act, the contract would not end until 60 days after such notification. Actually the old contract will continue in effect until Aug. 14, Elliott said. Some operator spokesmen in the East have questioned the legality r .. , x ... T - work only three days a week. They have charged that they may be violating anti-trust laws if they agree upon a three-day week. A union spokesman, however, pointed out the "willing and able' clause of the present contract. It states that the miners will work only when they are "willing or able.',' Thus, if the miners are willing to work only three days a week, the responsibility might be passed from the companies to the union should any dispute arise over that issue. One question still unsettled today which might hamper opera- tions three consecutive days a week was that of railroad "no j bill" allowances. Immediately prior to the vacation period no bill limits were increased from 25 per cent to 100 per cent daily. THAT MEANT in some cases that mines could pile up as much as two days' production in coal cars on sidings at the mine without paying demurrage charges. With the coal market somewhat shaky recently, mines might not be able to bill their coal and ship it on three consecutive work days. The mines are scheduled to work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week because 7VTr,r.H5iv' ic a hrvliHav Thorpaflrr n w , m , mey win worn iuonaay, luesaay and Wednesday only when called to work.

Dry Ice Solves Problem Of Candy vs The Heat Finally science has licked one of the gravest problems of sweet toothers the losing battle of chocolate candy with the weather. The Stover Candy company of Kansas City, which makes chocolate candy that needs help in hot weather, has harnessed science in its shipping room, and can deliver candy to their agencies in perfect condition. Here's how it works: The candy is packed in an inner carton. This carton is packed in a carton of dry ice. A shipping date is affixed. From the time of the evaporation of the ice is figured an opening date which is also stamped on the carton. The retailer receives the candy, waits until the opening date, opens the candy and is ready for business if he has a refrigerator or an air-cooled room. The opening date is necessary because the dry ice keeps the temperature of the candy way below room temperature. A sudden increase in temperature causes moisture to collect on the candy, causing il to turn white. The Cline-Vick drug store in Carbondale is receiving such shipments. t lf- i Ji. 1 ,VM V-.M Lo Willi . -i. 12. 0 Press . ..:.. : ' ' '. ' $ " A- J f .

The Health Board Begins Official Operation Today Tli Jackson County Health Board, voted into operation in the j November election, went into official operation today, with Dr. H. W. Willis, Murphysboro, as chairman of the board. The board's first official meeting was set for July 7, at which time a tentative budget for operation, the hiring of personnel, and the amount to be levied in taxes for operational expenses will bejto Charley Birger during the Eir-;Dy approved by the seven-man board. In a meeting held earlier in the , spring, board members laid plans j for the actual operation of the; board in which a tentative budget j was proposed. Officers were elected at that time, with Dr. Willis, to serve as chairman, and Mrs. Cora Rollo, Murphysboro, as secretary. Other board members are John Gilbert, Murphysboro, Dr. J. A. Petrazio, Ava. Mrs. E. D. McGuire, Carbondale, Dr. Marie Henricks, Carbondale, and Park Jarrett, Cora. THE COUNTY health unit, as voted last November, requires tha' two licensed doctors must serve on the board, along with a licensed dentist"and our laymen. The official duties of the board wJl be to publish an annual report of operation, enforce r state health laws; deaJowith contagious diseases .f.Cregire inspections' q of sttpected contaminated areas, anu giv advice to schools, governments, etc., on all health prob lems oard will be 100 P'cent' PJ1 ntive ando informa tional in scoDe vith3fntf cases of administrative medicine to be t handled, by the board or itc ap- I pointed -floctor. pd The unit is expected to cost Jackson county about $27,000. The state will give aid in tht amount of about $18,000 annually. Some $45,000., to $47,000 will be paid out in salaries and operating expenses with personnel being- drawn from the local area. Board members believe that it will take at least two years for the county unit to become successfully oiganized and into operation. Their biggest hurdle, according to Murphysboro unit members, will be the obtaining of a doctor to head the administrative health unit. Dr. Merwin Goes To N. E. A. Meet Dr. Bruce W.

Newman, serving time for two murders, bank robbery and two convictions of ronsniracv to mur- der had sought a "definite sen-1 tence" parole. If granted, that would have set the date when Newman would be come eligible for parole. UNDER STATE law, a prisoner must serve 20' years to be eligible for parole on a life sentence and must serve at least one-third of the time if given a -definite sentence of an exact number of years. Newman has been an inmate of state prisons for 20 years. His long string of convictions was considered the main factor in the jrefusal of the board to grant his re Newman has been in prison under three one to life sentences for the murder of Mrs. Lory Price, the murder of iMayor Joe Adams of West City and the robbery of the Pocahontas ankoin B6ria county.

The clerk said next week's schedule would vary, since Monday is July 4, a national holiday. The office will be open all day next Tuesday, rather than Monday.

County selective service board Chairman Nyle Huffman of Carbondale recently reminded county men becoming 18 to register within five days of the birthday. Failure to register within the allotted period is grounds for legal prosecution, Huffman said. Mrs. Hinkley said registrations are averaging about four per week. Area Police Report No Fireworks Violators Repeating a warning against the sale or use of explosive-type fireworks, Donald J. Walsh, state director of public safety, today ordered state police to renew their efforts to apprehend violators of state fireworks laws. At Du Quoin police headquarters, where Lieutenant Murray Stinson is in charge, a policeman said this morning that no violators had been apprehended. "Fireworks of the explosive type may only be used in Illi ois in organized fireworks display endorsed by municipal officials," Walsh said.
