MKANIM, SATUBPAY IVININC, AUGUST 14, ml If, Kir* .«4 NU CINTI Mine Work Stoppage Called Washington-OPj-John L. Lewis, in the midst of bargaining for a new coal wage contract, today ordered his miners out of the pits for a 10-day "memorial" w o r k stoppage at the end of this month. Nothing was said in the announcement to relate the move to the negotiations, but Lewis customarily uses the contract-permitted mourning period in connection with new contract talks. Officially the purpose is Commemoration of the casualties of mining disasters. The designated period, announce^. i fl the United Mine Workers Journal, is August 25 to September 1, inclusive. August 23 falls on a Saturday when the miners customarily do not work. September 1 is a Monday. Thus the stoppage will involve only six normal working days. Lewis has liven notice'that the present coal mine wage contract will expire September 30, j u s t under a month after the men will be L'oing back to work following the memorial holiday. While the selected dates put no direct pressure on the contract talks, they nevertheless will serve to emphasize what will happen if the negotiations do not produce agreement.

Apparent illegal voting in Izar.-t County's runoff primary last Tuesday set off a recount of the votes yesterday in one race and a pos.sinle appeal to the Democratic Stale Committee. Two apparently defeated can-i didates said they would take their I cases to court, and a third indi-1 cated that legal action was a possibility. In a turbulent, three-hour session, the Izard County Democratic Committee canvassed the primary returns and rejected a request by state Sen. Y. M. Mack of Moorefield that it throw out all votes cast in the county in the 18th district senatorial nomination race. Mack's attorney said the decisior would be appealed to the Stale Committee. The County Committee ordered a recount of all votes cast for stale represenlative and sheriff, with a detailed check of the legality of each ballot. But the committee then decided that such an investigation was impossible and agreed to make only a routine recount, without testing the legality of the vote. Fred Beach, the losing candidate for sheriff, and the defeated representative candidate,' K. L. Blair, said suftj)' a recount would be unsatisfaclory. Hub of the dispute Is the fact that Izard County cast about 3,500 voles in the primary although it had issued fewer t h a n 2,400 poll tax receipts. The discrepancy is larger than the vctory margin of any of the winners in the three contesled races. Mack led Sen. Orvillc Cheney of j day with R i t a .

Judge Francis Cherry yesterday for his victory in Tuesday's elcc- tion with a letter pledging "my support and cooperation," He invited the new nominee fnr governor to send his department heads, when they are named, to "sit in all board or commission meetings pertaining to their departments." The governor sent copies of the letter to state department heads, urging their cooperation in helping Cherry and his appointees. In letters to members of the State Highway Commission, McMath requested that the department "complete as many projects ai possible in the remaining time that we have." Make Bid For Labor Vote Hopskotch Speoking Tour Sketched By Stevenson Party (By the Associated Press) An Eisenhower bid fo£ the labor vote and a hopscotch speaking tour by Stevenson were sketched into presidential campaign strategy being drafted by Republicans and Democrats today. Gen. Dwighl D. Eisenhower, the GO." nominee, is now ticketed for t a l k before the Air.crican Fed* eration of Labor convention opening September 15 at New York City. 1 "General Eisenhower," s a i d Sen. Richard Nixon of California, the Republican nominee for vice president, "will welcome the opportunity to appear before labor organizations anytime he can." Nixon, at Denver, discounted the CIO's endorsement yesterday of Illinois' Gnv. Adlai E. Stevenson, the Democratic candidate for president. "While the leadership of the CIO has endorsed Governor Stevenson," Nixon said, "it will be a different thing as far as the rank and fiie is concerned. We are not going to wrjfe off the labor vote." Strategy Outlined At Springfield, 111., today, Stevenson met his campaign strategy board. This group may approve the whistle-stop campaign technique, used so effectively by President Truman in 1948, along with a hopscotch gimmick added by Stevenson for 1952. A reliable source said it would work this way: Stevenson would Whistle-stop, but only in the populous states, east of the Mississippi River and j Cherry rode in t r i u m p h down dec in the Pacific Coat states.

Izard gave almost 90 per cent of its votes to Cheney, and the state senator won by 745 votes. Elmer Fudge was nominated for sheriff with a 370-votc lead over former State Trooper Fred Beach. Blair lost 'ny 36 votes to Rep. Ar- :hur Harris. When the Fayetteville City Council numbered Ihe streets and residences in August, J902, a Little Rock newspaper carried an item on the project which now seems to have been somewhat optimistic. The item, reprinted today in the i me Tciin Found Dead In Mountain Home Area dan talked about a solid ''.Vest for the Republican nominee to rival the Democrats' solid South. As he worked on arrangements for Eisenhower's visit to Boise next Wednesday, Jordan said: "Eisenhov/er v.-ill go East to open the campaign with the solid backing of at least JO of the 11 Western states.
