VCHUMI 90, NUMBER 226 FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY EVENING, APRIL 16, 1952 PRICI RVB cam Workers Back At Jobs, Phone Service Normal Statewide Walkout Ends After Company And Union Talk The telephone situation was normal again today in Fayetteville and over Arkansas. But how long it will remain that way is uncertain. The statewide walkout 'of approximately 2,500 Southwestern Bell Telephone Company workers ended a t ' 6 o'clock this morning. The Associated Press said haclr- to-work orders were issued by the CIO Communication Workers ot America lasf night following a meeting of Southwestern Bell and union representatives. The walkout started Sunday when union operators · and other employes were ordered off their jobs by the union. The union said the action was taken because operators, returning to their jobs last week after walking out briefly, were "locked out and suspended," a charge denied by the company. . Here in Northwest Arkansas, at least, no trace of'lockouts could be found. Management and supervisory employes, who manned the boards each time the on-again- off-again strike h ! ', expressed relief at each re-appearance of the operators. The original walkouts camp when Western Electric Company workers, on strike against WE, appeared to picket the various Bell. exchanges. Although employed by different firms, telephone and WE workers are members of the same union and honor picket lines. At Little Rock, Floyd Ta'1or. representative of the CWA, said last night's settlement had nothing to do with the Western Electric strike. In other words, striking WE workers are still at liberty to establish picket lines at any Arkansas exchange--thus possibly touching off another walkout. In Fayetteville, Manager Shib-' ]ey said today the situation is nor-' mal--at least for the lime hcin?. returned to this morning Helping To Keep The Calls Going Management and supervisory employes o f . Southwestern Bell Telephone Company, who manned switchboards here yesterday and last night during a fresh walkout of union employes, went back to their regular jobs this morning. But not until they had put in n considerable stretch as operators. Here, five men employes try Ihcir hands as "telephone girls." From loft to right arc Manager Clyde Shibley, Dale Martin, Thomas W. Liles, Eugene Snipes, and George H. I.ilcs. (Carl TIMESFOTO). Striking employes their jobs at 6:30 after staying sway from work all dav yesterday. The three-day- walkout was never fully effective in Northwest Arkansas. Fayetteville operators went out Sunday, bul came baek to work Monday. Monday afternoon WE workers showed up to picket the exchange, and by yesterday morning the employes of the phone company were a°ain off the job on Iheir own accord. In Rogers, 96 employes went out yesterday for the first time-with the exception of one hour last week--but they were back- today. The same situation prevailed in general over this area of the state. Dairy Day Clinic Is Held In Siloam Springs Bentonville-(Special)-One hundred and 65 farmers, 4-H Club and FFA members, attended the third annual Benton County Dairy ray Clinic in Siloam Springs yesterday. The 'Clinic, sponsored by the Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce, was direcled by County Agent Herbert Russell, assisted by Dale Wilson, Pet Milk field man; and Joe Slavens, vocational agricultural teacher. Featured -on the program was an address on how to recognize good, dairy'cows by T. P. Head, extension dairyman at the University. Also on the program were Austin Parish of the Arkansas Artificial Breeders Association and Paiil Haryour, Jinks, Okla., dairyman.

At times traffic the'step] industry to reach a wage agreement this week "or else." The publication snid steel companies were left this choice: They could "acquiesce" la a contract' dictated by the govern- men'.-union coalition, or they could have it imposed upon them. The trade weekly said "steel companies will fight 'imposition' to the last ditch--the Supreme Court." The Justice Department, speaking for the Truman administration, set forth today its views of the legality of the seizure in a brief filed with the U. S. District Court. The Just ire Department contended the seizure was fully in accordance with constitutional lav/. Five leading ste°l companies have challenged the seizure, arid asked the court for d permanent injunction that would prohibit the president from taking over the mills. ' Fayelteville's t r a f f i c problem * may come in for the first compre- \ hensive study in the city's history '. this summer. City officials and j members of the Chamber of Com- j mercc Highway and Transporta- j tion Committee will meet within j the next two weeks to discuss t plans for the study. j Traffic congestion on Fayelte- j ville's streets, most of them Inid out in horse anil buggy days, has ; increased sharply since the end | jams appear on the verge of j strangling the business districts. ' t Mayor Powell Rhea said this af- teVnoon that a' study of the situation has been delayed pending completion.of the new Highway 71 by-pass, since rerouting of Highway traffic away from the Square is expucted to bring at least some relief there.

Ark.-(/Tj-Gubern a t n r i n l Candidate Boyd Tackett of Nashville sn$ there is no necessity for an increase in state taxes. Representative Tackett, who will 5?ck the Democratic nomination \ for governor of Arkansas in the I summer primaries, yesterday told ' 3,500 of the "homefolk who know | me best" that: "By the elimination of waste and extravagance and the proper utilization of revenues now available, it will not be necessary to raise taxes. "The Arkansas taxpayer already is overburdened and if the cm! phasis is placed where *t belongs '--on efficient administration--the money now coming into the state treasury will do the job." Tackctl spoke to a crowd of supporters from eight Southwest j Arkansas counties a t . a rally on the shores of Narrows' Lake near Murfreesboro. Tackett lashed the administration o f " Gov. Sid McMath. While | McMath has not announced his | candidacy for a third term, he is expected to do so. Hits "Whispering Campaign" Tackett condemned compromises, acceptance of campaign contributions where there is no campaign, and "the requiring of contributions from firms doing business w i t h the state." The congressman jlso rappcri what he said was a "whispering campaign" being conducted against him by "McMath henchmen." He called Governor McMalh's highway building program "paint brush paving," and predicted that roads paved by the administration would not stand up for more t h a n a year. Tnckett also touched ui his opposition to n proposed electrical co-op power plant for T'orthwest Dr. John Tyler Caldwell Of Alabama College New President U.
