ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, JULY 8, 1968 Transit Strike Ends CHICAGO (AP) - Normal ttsnstt service was expected to- ny iftcf a weekend agreement Wtw worked out to the satisfaction of Ittost of the striking drlvefi of the Chicago Transit Stmtett Lotions and Cream T» Tut Past & Prevent Sunbafn 2|KE DIM Most of the dissident bus drivers who participated in last week's wildcat strike were back on the job Sunday following an agreement reached Saturday evening in a 7-hour bargaining session in the office of Mayor Richard J. Daley. CTA President George DeMent said that transit operations were normal on Sunday, and added I see no reason why we shouldn't have normal service Monday." Some of the striking drivers were reported dissatisfied with Saturday's agreement. But Robert cavens, one of the leaders of the strike, discounted the reports saying, "There are some dissidents who didn't like the agreement we got, but that's to be expected." Despite the agreement, how« ever, there were still problems between the dissident drivers, mostly Negro, and their union, Division 241 of the Amalgamated Transit Union. The Negro drivers demanded that there be more Negroes on the local's executive board. The strikers also argued that retired drivers should not be allowed to vote In union elections. Union president James Hill previously Insisted that the drivers return to work before he would discuss any of the infra-union grievances with them. Hill criticized CTA officials for providing too little protection for non-striking drivers during last week's strike. f***************************** Sentimental?

BROADWAY 468-7721 >f *****************************T Law for Today... Q. I've been told that the fishing license 1 bought isn't good for pole and line fishing. The license says I can fish with up to fifty hooks. What does a person have to do to be able to go fishing the old fashioned way? A. What you bought is a license for trot line fishing. You can use up to fifty hooks on a trot line. At one time, a trot line license was good for pole and line fishing too, and vice versa but, under a new law, separate licenses are required. The 1967 Legislature also limited the number of hooks that may be used when pole and line fishing. The limit is four hooks when fishing anywhere except in Lake Michigan. Also, not more than two devices (whether two hand poles and lines or two rods and lines or one each) and not more than two hooks per device may be used. In Lake Michigan waters under Illinois jurisdiction a trolley or trolleys may be used, or poles and lines, or a combination thereof—provided the total number of hooks used is not more than 10. Also the limit of not more than two hooks per pole and line or rod and line still applies. —Illinois State Bar Association By HOWARD ANDERSON Associated Press Writer ATLANTA, Ga.

Negotiation., Initiated by the U. S. Mediation Service, *••**•", Metropolitan Life Iniurane* Company beginning June 2Bth and the Union Com mtttee futlley bargained an entire week during which time they mad* every fort and explored every avenue In an attempt te come up with M AgMM with the Company that might be mutually acceptable and might permit Agents an opportunity to vote on a return to work. In their deliberations the Union Committee adopted a flexible ««Wud»« They made concessions In many areas and advanced proposal! of such «<>«''«• proportions that the Company In rejecting them, dearly served notice that ft was not interested in settling the strike, Moreover, the Metropolitan Life Iniur- ance Company, in seeking to Incorporate in any Agreement Its •*P l '"*» d «• tention of retaliation against unnamed and unnumbered Individuals due te alleged actions during the strike. . .made It plain that It neither expected nor wanted settlement of the strike at this time. The Company in Its adamant and arbitrary stand reveals its apparent motives. It can only be concluded that the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company is trying to break the Union, and that the welfare of the Metropolitan Agency Force means little to them. As we enter the eighth week we know that at some time negotiations will resume. The strike will be settled . . . with the help of all, it will be settled successfully. Again, we ask you for your cooperaiion. If ANY Metropolitan Representative calls at your home for collections or to sell you Insurance he Is itrilte breaking. Please turn him away.
