Sir Stafford Cripps, as principal spokesman at a press conference, emphasized that the procedure for forming a new constitution was proposed by the British government and by the cabinet mission, and that it was not mandatory such a course be followed. However, he added, “if you ac cept the method we have put for ward of getting on with making a new constitution, we could between us make a smooth transition and a rapid one. “But if the plan is not accepted, no one can say how great will be the disturbances or how acute and long the suffering tha' will be self-inflicted on the Indian peo ple.” Cripps said it was impossible to state how soon the British w'ould sever governmental connections with India since “no one can tell howT soon a constitution can be hammered out.” MORE ABOUT CENSUS FROM PAGE ONE this kind throughout the nation this summer to determine the edfects of the impact of war and peace time reconversion on the economic set-up of the country.

Small denounced Lewis as a breeder of industrial "chaos.” Stand by Asked As the latest presidential effort to gain a settlement came to noth ing, Ross told reporters that “rep resentatives of the wine workers and the operators were asked to “stand by for further conversa tions.” When these talks would be held was not indicated. But the President, in announcing his arbitration proposal, had said the parties had told him their dis cussions “had completely broken down and that further negotiations would be useless.” Gets Answer The President advanced his sug gestion for arbitration at a 10 minute conference with Lewis and Charles O’Neill of the operators this morning, and got his answer at 5:30 p. m., as the two returned for their third White House visit in two days. Small, however, discounted in ad vance the idea that non-compulsory measures could bring industrial peace. In his lengthy statement, which he emphasized that he issued as a private citizen, the CPA chief said on that point: Legislation Needed "Lacking any sign that labor will now agree voluntarily to a holiday of strikes xxx or that management will agree to voluntary arbitration. I am forced, as a private citizen, to the reluctant conclusion that legislation is urgently required.” Small called Lewis’ methods in the coal controversy a "glaring ex ample” of refusal to accept the principle that those who exercise the right to benefits granted by the public owe “an even greater re sponsibility and duty to their gov ernment and its citizens.” Proposes Compulsion The CPA administrator proposed compulsory arbitration along with his six months prohibition plan. Small asserted that Lewis, by withholding details of his demands, “has made a travesty of collec tive bargaining.” He declared that Lewis “brought the economy of the country to a virtual stop, he pulled the switch on American industry and threw it into chaos.” He add ed that “it is time that John L. Lewis realizes that he is not bigger than 140,000,000 other people.” Breathing Spell Small renewed the statements he has made to Congressional com mittees that industry "must have a breathing spell from strikes and from threats of strikes” and that six or eight months of uninter rupted production would ‘‘put us over the hump” of inflation dan ger. “Hasty legislation written and debated in the heat and rancor of an emergency is almost always apt to be bad legislation,” he said. “Therefore, at this critical junc ture it seems to me that the sensi ble thing to do would be to pass emergency and temporary legis lation outlawing strikes for at least the next six months ahead, mean while permitting collective bar gaining to go forward within the present wage pattern but imposing compulsory arbitration in those cases where collective bargaining fails.

A War department spokesman said Thursday that full continuation of the Army’s scheduled demobilizs tion’ program after June 30 de pended upon future action by Con gress on the draft.

MORE ABOUT DEADLOCK FROM PAGE ONE modified wage proposal by the union*. They talked to Dr. John R. Steelman, presidential special assistant in labor matters. Steelman In Touch Steelman said after the Presi dent’s news conference that he had not been able to communicate the development to the President, but that he had been in touch with both sides and asked them to stand by. The next move appeared to be up to the White House, and Steelman said - another alternative besides seizure or abritration was a re quest by the President that the negotiators try again to agree. He indicated this might take the form of a request for a White House conference with both sides Friday. Still Has Hopes The President told reporters he is still working on the rail strike threat, but could say nothing more at this time. He said he hoped the negotiators who broke up this morning over a modified wage in crease proposed by the two operat ing unions would still be able to get together. Asked if he still planned to seize the roads if no settlement were reached before the strike dead line, he replied certainly, but add ed he hoped this would not be necessary. He said he had been in communication with both sides, but said neither group had com municated with him Thursday. Dr. Steelman cleared this up later by saying the negotiators reported to him. The President had not ask ed for a report until Friday. Negotiations Off Union-management negotiations broke down when the carriers’ re presetatives rejected a modified union proposal for a wage increase and both sides reported to Presi dent Truman their inability to agree. The President had intervened Tuesday to get both sides to re sume negotiations. He asked them to report back to him by Friday. Mr. Truman told reporters last week he would seize the roads if that were necessary to keep them running. Refused In Past Another alternative is arbitra tion, but the two unions have re fused to arbitrate in the past. Union heads would not say whether the workers would remain on the job under government oper tion. There was some question whether a walkout under those circumstances would constitute a violation of the Smith-Connally act. Received Orders A. F. Whitney, president of the Brotherhood of Trainmen, when asked whether the men would continue to work—for the govern ment,—replied that the men re ceived their strike instructions a month ago. Some persons contend this would relieve union heads from responsibility under the Smith-Connally law. They contend the law provides penalties only where a strike is called after the government has seized a plant or industry. Ii_ the case of the Illinois Central railroad, already under govern ment operation, the workers have been requested by the trainmen and engineer unions to remain on the job. Brotherhood spokesmen say this action was taken to avoid, the risk of a Smith-Connally vio lation. Wage Prospals Whitney and Alyanley Johnston, head of the engineers, said after today’s brief coference that they had proposed a modified wage rise of 18 percent and a minimum of $1.44 a day. This compares with their original demand of 25 percent and a floor of $2.50 a day The carrier representatives said they stood ready to settle on the basis of 16 cent an hour, or $1.28 a day for an eight-hour day “but cannot go beyond that.’’ They said three boards, two arbitration and one residetial emergency board, recommended this figure, effec tive Jan. 1, 1946, as the propel award under the stabilizatin pro gram.
