(AP) - The year-old Shell Oil Co. strike appeared at an end today, but. the settlement still must be submitted to the workers for final approval. Settlement of the strike, one of the longest in the industry, came Sunday after 27 hours of continuous negotiation by union and management representatives. About 2,200 members of Local 4-367 of the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers Union will vote on ratification at 7:30 p.m. (CST) Tuesday. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed by William Simkin, national director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, who announced the settlement. He said the details would not be divulged until union members have a chance to pass on them. The Houston Post reported a near draw on the issue of the company contracting some construction and maintenance work to outside firms. The Post's labor writer, T.L. Whorton, was told the formula under which construction and maintenance work was let out before svould be essentially the same under proposed agreement. The Post also learned that if work is resumed as a result of this agreement, the union work force will be about 1,950, or 250 fewer men than were employed before the strike. Shell had announced earlier that it would lay off almost 400 men when work was resumed. The Post was told that the agreement calls for a general 5 per cent wage increase. Shell said it was paying an average of $3.02 an hour before the strike. The marathon strike at two Shell plants in Deer Park, a Houston suburb, began last Aug. 18. Supervisory personnel kept both plants operating.

Clocks were stopped at 10:25 nd 10:26 p.m. in the Lemay and last Alton stores., the blast at he Florissant store was within minutes of the other two explo- jons. The timing of the blasts would iave taken careful planning, one h lton munitions expert said at he time. Riggins said a woman motorist ad reported seeing a tall man nd a short and heavyset man unning away from the store rtortly before the bombing. She aid that she thought that they •ere running to get out of the ain at that time.

The East Alton store bomb ,-as placed in the south en- rance. It shattered five large ilate glass windows, twisted luminum window frames, scat- ered merchandise throughout he store and shattered light fix- ures. The Rev. George Dougherty, pastor of the First Baptist ihurch of East Alton, was the irst to reach the scene after the explosion. The blast brought him running nto the shopping center which his church faces. He said he saw no one. Two large, colored glass windows in his church were knocked out by the concussion, Officers said they wanted to talk to Cusumano, a former convict, because he matched a description witnesses gave of a man seen placing a package at a store July 3 moments before an explosion. Cusumano was re ported gone from St. Louis foi the past month. He was reported seen in Nev York, Las Vegas and on the West Coast. Since the first bombing March 8, six Kroger Co. stores have been blasted, along with a Na tional Food store and an A&P store.
