The communication ended with a request for assignent of some "alert and thoroughly competent lawyers" for the ; prosecution. Jenner who served overseas as an air forces captain, said the army manual on courts martial Specifically permits the accused to be represented by civilian attorneys, or by any army officer, of his choice. When. none is requested, the unit commanding of- iicer assigns an officer to act as defense counsel.

The miners .will have in addilion to the wage and hour benefils, a form of "freeze" On their house rentals which could be lifled by area wide agreemenl or by nego- liation by the UMW. The miner als,o will be able to purchase heating coal at cost which Lewis said would "mean a rub- slanliul saving" in thai item. Lewis, waving a cigar, told reporters with unmistakeable pride that the controls that he had negotiated had "more real value for Ihe individual mine worker lhan has hitherlo been negotiated in this or any other industry through collective bargaining." "We hope that it is the beginning of a new era in the industry," he continued. Lewis offered the contract to the operators on a take-it-or-leave-it basis. Us lerms were made public by the northern negotialing committee, with a statement declaring the agreement will "make possible the quick return lo full scale oper- alions in Ihe steel industry" and Ihe coal fields. II also will boost the cost of coal and "many products dependent upon coal," the statement said, but the operators are convinced that the full-scale production il permits "i" 1 "is the most effective way to main- om> tain the economy of Ihe nation. The contract, effective until July 1, 1948, provides: 1. A 44 1-2 cent basic hourly wage icrease — raising miners' pay to 13.05 a day — far above 1947's econd-rpund "pattern" of wage icrensrfs in other industries. 2. Aif eight-hour day, including )ortal-lo-porlal time, instead of a ine-hour day; also, a half-hour in- lead of 15 minutes for lunch. 3. A 10-cents-a-ton levy, inslead jf !> cenls to support the miners' velfare fund. The fund will be gov- rned by a three-man board of rustecs made up of Ezra Van lorn, Cleveland coal operator; UMW President Lewis; and a neural member tc be chosen jointly. 4. Agreement that the contract covers the soft coal miners "dur- ng such time as such persons are willing and able to work." This- immunizes the .union from Tafl-Harl- ley act penalties for work stoppages in violation of contract. 5. Withdrawal of no-strike clauses and penalties for illegal stoppages from all local and district conlracls.

Steel Corporation, who helped break the contract deadlock a week ago by capitulating to Lewis' full wage demands-, said the new pact ' r should prove to be highly beneficial to the whole economy of the nation." The miners' basic hourly pay hike would be 44 1-2 cents —from 'with 20 or more votes to spare over''the two-thirds" needed tc overthrow another veto.

SERVICE-PROVED, Soil- cement has thoroughly demonstrated its durability and strength under all weather conditions. Hundreds of miles of roads and millions of square yards of airport runways of soil-cement are now in use. SOIL-CEMENT IS a scientific mixture of portland cement and the soil on the site. Moistened and compacted, it hardens into a strong, dura- ble material highly resistant to sun, rain and frost. First cost is low because soil- cement is about 90% soil. Large areas can be put down rapidly with simple equipment and ordinary labor. Precise but simple methods of laboratory control assure durability. MONEY SAVING. Soil- cement does for light-traffic uses what portland cement concrete does for heavier duty—it provides long -serviceability at low annual cost.

Sunday nights Monny and Angel always ate at Marshall-Gill's. Monny was all right in her way but she had a temper and threw things. Angel was all right, too. if you soft-soaped her and gave presents. She was working on Harris now, and it wouldn't be long. Harris was tough but Angel always got her girl. Angel knew what she wanted. Used to be a boarder herself until Monny .promoted her....
