"Beirne, in setting a date for the strike, expressed hope the contract dispute could be settled before the deadline.

A strike would have little immediate effect on local telephone service in communities with dial systems, except in event of equipment breakdown. A walkout probably could cripple long-distance phoning. Wages, Contract * The dispute centers mainly over wages and length of a new "contract.
