Operations ceased when picket lines were set up at 5 p.m. Monday. A company spokesman announced at noon that. International Shoe Co. had submitted a proposal which has been accepted by the union committee and will be submitted tonight to the union membership for ratification. The company's proposal covers three points: "1. That the men return to work at the usual time. "2. That we resume contract negotiations for settlement of all questions, including seniority, in good faith. "3. That the company maintain normal production and shipment of leather during contract negotiations." Six-hundred members of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters & Butcher Workmen of North America Local union No. 31 walked off the job late Monday afternoon. This morning they established a picket line of about 200 men, and later reduced the number to about 30. R. H. Richards, vice president and general manager of International's subsidiary plants, described the walkout as a strike over a refusal of a group of men to accept a normal work assignment. Walkout Rumored The union, he reported, took a strike vote a month ago but didn't count the ballots until last Saturday. Rumors 'circulated at the tannery that there would be a Levee Board Trustee Bill , In Assembly SPRINGFIELD, 111. (Special) A bill which would eliminate election of the five trustees of the East. Side Levee Board, embracing parts of Madison and St, Clair Counties, and provide for appointment of their successors by Gov. Strntton and four Republican circuit judges in the area, was introduced in the House today by Rep. Edward D. Groshong (R) of East Alton. The proposal contains two changes from earlier plans In that: its effective date would be Dec. 8 next, instead of in September, and that two of the trustees be from each county with the circuit judges naming four of them and the gov- One of the biggest check-writing nrocrams In the city's history was being completed today as more than 800 warrants were being prepared In preparation for the payment, of claims to a total of almost $71,000 to he allowed hy the city council at its meeting Wednesday night.

Bills for both the sexennial city court election of March 3 and the biennial city-township election of April 7 are included in the March claims audited last night, and it wjll require'392 checks to pay oft for the two elections.

Green, manager of the Wood River tannery (Hartford), instructed workers Monday to move the stock for shipment. In event of work stoppage, the stock is damaged, he said. The men refused to move the stock, the company said. They were then told to either take direction from plant management or leave, and the union employes all left the plant. Union representatives, in conference in St. Louis, could not be reached by telephone this«tBorfting. , The pickets today had blocked everyone out of the plant but The office force, Manager Green, As- Brazier and Charles Vanpeter who is seeking the post after an absence of four years. One auto bearing a "Vanpreter for Mayor" sign and driven by Verdell Grindstaff was picked up by Police Chief Ed Abernathy and the driver charged with driving with a ficticious license plate.

The old company-union contract, which was to expire last Dec. 1, was extended to Jan. 1, a company spokesman said, but since no agreement was reached, the 'tannery has been operating since tho first of the year without a contract. The issues of wages, with minor exceptions, have been settled, the company spokesman declared. The new contract, however, has* been stalled hy the one issue of seniority, he reported. James Lee Johnson, viee-presi- dent in charge of industrial relations for International Shoe, accompanied Richards to the Telegraph office this morning to explain the company's viewpoint on seniority. Seniority Problem Tha company, said Richards, holds that seniority should be observed on a departmental basis. The« union on the other hand, he said, wants plantwide seniority. In St. Louis this morning, a conference of union and company representatives was held with Nick FMlo, of the U.S. Mediation Service. • ^ The seniority issue, according to the company, stems from a difference of viewpoint in these respects: Practice Explained The company would have senior- Ity practiced as In the expired eon- tract.

This plan kept: those who served in the January manager election from a long wait for their compensation. Finance Chairman Whetxcl said pay checks for the judges and clerks, of the last two municipal elections will he available next Thursday at the office of City Clerk Price. The judges and clerks get $10 each. Because the city's fiscal year opens April 1 and the administrative year, May 1, the claims to be allowed Wednesday by the council cover the full month of April and officials and employes of the city will get a full month's pay. The first regular^ payrolls under the new, incoming administration will he allowed at the second council meeting in May, and will be for the first half of May. Among the larger totals on the committee bills approved last night are $11,231 for the police department, $9,925 for the fire department, $9,339 for repairing and maintaining streets, $4,067 from the parking meter fund which includes salaries of about 10 traffic policemen, $2,771 from 'the garbage collection fund, $1,321 for printing and official publications, $8,659 for street lighting, $5,872 for water including fire hydrant rental, and $6,128 for salaries.

And stories of many more dangerously ill Allied soldiers still in Red captivity indicated the Communists do not plan to free all sick and wounded as they had agreed to do. Today's reports recalled the shocked words "incredibly small" uttered two weeks ago by Rear Adm. John C. Daftial, the U. N. truce delegate, when the Reds told him 600 sick and wounded would be repatriated. The new development suggested that the Communists were failing once again on a solemn agreement. Sgt. Walter H. Mitchell of Greenville, Tenn., said, "There were quite a few left in the hospital at the Pyoktong camp. . . .'I would rather they had corne than me. . . . They needed medical attention more." Death marches over frozen highways in.bitter winter weather were reported by two American soldiers. Pfc. Rocer llcrndon of Jacksonville, Fla., and Cpl. Orville R.

More than 125 injured were rushed to hospitals, many of them In crijical condition. Rescue workers continued to probe the wreckage. Officials said more bodies may be found. Some of the Injured lay for hours pinned in the shattered cars of the Atlantic Coast line's last, passertger train, the East Coast Champion. Rescue workers used acetylene torches to reach the victims. Doctors crawled after them, giving first aid and sometimes operating on the spot to free the In^ared.
