Wage Cut Order Is
Deferred for Week
Jerome, Ariz., Feb. 7.--Late today
the mining companies of this section
withdrew their order published
earlier, making a cut in copper min

new order was to have gone into ef

been laid over till next week, when,
it is thought, a cut will be made, but
not to the extent of 75 cents.
The 75-cent reduction would, if it
went into effect, place the base wage
for miners at $5.15, where it was
before the federal order raised it last
