The Michigan Bell Telephone Company and the.CIO Communications Workers of America jointly announced the settlement. Full details were not revealed immediately, but the basis for agreement was reported by the union as .a 12.7-cents hourly wage increase. Any settlement in Michigan was expected .to form thi. pattern for agreements generally. But prospects of a drawn out strike against the Western Electric Company were indicated today, despite continued efforts to mediate the dispute t; at has idled telephone equipment men in 43 Bulletin Pickets appeared in frent of the Southwestern Bell Telephone Company's Fayetteville plant shortly after 7 p.m., today, and operators walked out.

Oil Workers Issue Threat Of A Strike St. Lpuis-Wj-A union spokesman said today a decision on whether" a nationwide strike ol 125,000 oil industry workers will be ordered hinges on future action by tlie government. Unions representing the workers are awaiting a decision by the Wage Stabilization Board, he said, on whether it will continue hearings ordered by President Truman in an effort to settle the dispute and avert a strike. Workers want pay hikes and other benefits. O. A. Knight of Denver, president of the CIO Oil Workers International Union, said he has authority to speak for all of the 23 unions involved, including AFL and Independents. Knight threatened a nationwide strike when oil industry representatives failed to show up in St Louis yesterday for a hearing by a WSB panel seeking information for a recommendation for a settlement. The hearing was adjourned and referred to the WSB in Washington.

Upwards of 280,000 telephone workers across the nation have been idled in the strike. The ma- · jority of these are non-strikers who stayed off the job in respect of strikers' picket lines. Bell System employes have been on strike since Monday in Michi- · gan, New Jersey, Northern California and Ohio in wage disputes. At the same time the union's members have been on strike against · Western Electric Company in 43 elates. The combination of the two walkouts resulted in widespread idleness.

In Ohio, where some 12,000 Bell employes are on strike, a union spokesman said the Michigan settlement would be "a basis for an agreement in Ohio." Scattered Violence As intensified picketing led to scaltered instances of violence, the company obtained temporary injunctions in some states to restrain picket lines. Southern Bell secured orders forbidding picketing in Florida, Nu$th Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi and portions of Tennessee and Louisiana. In Atlanla, Ga., local CWA Pres- Idenl W. H. Carnp last night ordered removal of all picket lines In Georgia. He gave no explanation for the action, which he said might be taken in other Southern ttates on an individual city basis. However, pickets were ordered up at Chicago exchanges today. Picket lines also were extended in Northern California.
