"I take this opportunity to tender my resignation as president of the United Mine Workers of America to become effective immediately. This will not occasion any great surprise among you as most of you, have known for some time that I have contem plated retiring. " "Recent accomplishments of our or ganization have made it possible for me to relinquish the position earlier than I had anticipated. This, coupled with the fact that I have been chosen as an advisor to the fuel administra tor, Dr. H. A. Garfield, at Washington, prompts me to the course I am now pursuing. Affairs Are Satisfactory. "The accomplishment of our union have beeir many and substantial. Af fairs at this time are in a very sat isfactory jndltion. all things consid ered, and no great strike menaces our efforts. "The wage agreement reached In Washington recently is subject to the federal government's revision of the coal prices at the mined.
