U. S’. Begins Efforts
Today to Avert Tieup
Of Western Union
By the Associated Brass
NEW YORK, April 8.—Federal
conciliation efforts to avert a coast
to-coast strike against the Western
Union Telegraph Co. will begin to
day, Jesse A. Payne, president,
Western Union Division of the Com
mercial Telegraphs Union (AFL),
said last night.
The CTU, which claims a mem
bership of between 40,000 and 50,000,
filed strike notices April 3. Two
ofher unions, representing employes
of the company’s offices in the
Southwest, followed edit three days
later.
Mr. Payne said the three unions
were bargaining jointly.
Federal Conciliator Ronald W.
Haughton was directed to handle
negotiations here, Mr. Payne said,
after the CTU wired Secretary of
Labor Schwellenbach requesting im
mediate efforts to resolve “20 major
disputes between the company and
the union and other disputes de
pending thereon.”
The CTU charged in its strike
notice that the company had re
fused to bargain in good faith and
that it was “attempting to deny
in contract all rights vested in this
union by the National Labor Rela
tions Act and is attempting to can
cel out existing working conditions
and rates of pay amounting to
millions of dollars annually.”
The telegraphers’ contract with
Western Union expires July 1. It
contains a 30-day cancellation
clause, however, so that a strike
could be called any time after May
3, Mr. Payne said.
Me nsiea union aemanas as wage
increases of 25 cents an hour and
a 40-hour week, plus health-wel
fare and pension benefits.
The company has said that pres
ent wages for all employes except
messengers average $1.08 an hour.
Motdr messengers are paid 88.7
cents an hour, and walking and
bicycle messengers 65.4 cents.
Telephone
(Continued From First Page.!
of the telephone company and the
Western Electric Co. here has halted
all work on the new Anacostia plant
at Twenty-eighth and M streets S.E.
The telephone company said this
stoppage threatens to prevent the
May 1 scheduled opening of the two
new exchanges, Victor and Twining,
to serve 17,000 new subscribers in
that area.
Dial service continued without a
break. Manual service in the Lud
low exchange in the District and
the Capitol Heights and Locust
Spruce exchanges In nearby Mary
land was kept going, although sub
scribers were asked to limit calls
to essential messages.
Joseph A. Beirne, president of the
National Federation of Telephone
Workers, declared that his union
has “settled down to a long strike.”
After a conference last night with
Mr. Warren, he said no settlement
proposal had been advanced.
In the country as a whole the first
Nation-wide strike of telephone
workers cut long distance service by
80 per cent and put millions of
manually operated telephones prac
tically out of commission.
Union and industry leaders re
portedly were studying the situation
especially with an eye to determin
ing the effectiveness of both sides.
Union leaders declared that with
comparatively few exceptions their
forces were holding tight.
The Washington strike headquar
ters at 711 Thirteenth street N.W.,
reported that union members were
“holdine firm ” The rickets, a
spokesman said, are enthusiastic and
well disciplined.
Chesapeake & Potomac Co.
spokesmen here declared that be
tween 23 and 25 per cent of their
normal operating force was on duty
again today.
“They are very proficient in their
functions as emergency operators
and emergency calls are being han
dled without difficulty, according to
J. B. Morrison, vice president and
general manager. He praised the
manner in which many management
employes are performing tasks con
siderably difficult from their regular
duties.
General Picture Unchanged.
Company officials had an early
morning chuckle when a teen-age
messenger girl came into the build
ing and complained she has not re
ceived a picketing assignment or
been measured for a placard. A
company representative told her the
strike headquarters was a few doors
down Thirteenth street.
The second day of the strike found
little outward change in the general
picture here. The Western Union
Telegraph Co. reported 20 to 25 per
cent more telegrams yesterday and
this morning. An official reported
that “some overtime" had been
'worked by operators last night, but
j the number of employes has not
been increased. Telegraph company
officials in New York said the com
ipany’s business has increased about
; 25 per cent nationally.
Special arrangements were an
i nounced by the District Medical
Society today to facilitate prompt
handling of long distance medical
emergency calls.
“The telephone company will
maintain long distance service to
the medical bureau for outgoing
calls,” Bureau Manager J. Richard
Connelly said. “Only emergency
calls such as calls to out-of-town
physicians for consultation and calls
i for emergency medical supplies and
equipment will be accepted.”
If a doctor has an emergency call

Telephone Points of Issue
XOC vcicpuuuc BU1M mTUnw WU1
pastes of the Bell System and unions
affiliated with the National Federa
tion of Telephone Workers. In
Washington, the parties are the
District Federation of Telephone
Workers (maintenance and office
employes), the Washington Tele
phone Traffic Union (operators)
and the Chesapeake and Potomac
Telephone Co.
These are the principal points at
issue:
yf%ge&_
The unions: A basic general wage
Increase of $12 per week is de
manded. It is argued the boost
is justified by cost-of-living in
creases and “inequities” between
wages of telephone workers and
those in other industries. Removal
of area differentials is demanded
to bring all wages in the Bell
System up to the highest level
found anywhere in the system.
The company: The increase is not
justified at this time, it is con
tended, since a company survey
of wages paid for comparable
work in other industries showed
the company was in line with the
community wage pattern. As a
regulated public utility, it argues
it should not be required to take
the lead in establishing a new
pattern. For the same reason, it
contends the area differentials are
justified.
Arbitration—
The unions: Nation-wide arbitration
of all matters in dispute has been
proposed.
bureau, Republic 6100, giving the
operator all the pertinent informa
tion and his telephone number, Mr.
Connelly said. After the bureau
forwards this information to the
telephone company, the call will
be completed.
The first break in the strike action
was reported last night in James
town, N. Y., when the Federation
or Teiepnone woncers ui inai com
munity accepted a 9 per cent pay
increase. Approximately 115 opera
tors and maintenance workers were
to return to work.
NFTW officials here said, however,
that the Jamestown situation was
of “no significance.”
Two more breaks in the national
telephone strike were reported today
from upstate New York. Schenectady
members of the Empire State Tel
ephone Union returned to work. The
Binghampton council of the union
refused to take part in the strike.
The union is an independent and is
made up of repairmen and plant
maintenance workers.

Householder Shoots
Large Fox in Tree
On Foxhall Road
A large, gray fox, treed by a
spitz dog in the front yard of
a home at 2412 Foxhall road
N.W., was shot and killed early
today by the dog’s owner who
came to investigate.
Charles S. Omohundro, 41, of
the Foxhall road address, after
listening to his spitz, Tippy,
bark all night, spotted the fox
about 5 or 6 feet from the
ground in a small locust tree
about 8:30 am. He shot the
intruder with a .22 rifle.
According to Ernest P.
Walker, assistant director of
the Zoo here, it is not unusual
for a gray fox to climb leaning
trees or low ones with rough
bark. Nor is it particularly
unusual for them-to be in the
city, he added.

Union Shop and Dues Checkoff—
The unions: They consider them
necessary to' their security.
The company: It refuses to make
union membership a condition of
employment, and feels it should
not be required to handle union
dues bookkeeping unless paid a fee.
Wage Pnftakni
The unions: Compression of the
longest wage-progression schedule
from eight years to five years is
demanded, it being contended the
telephone company requires its
employes to work longer than any
other industry before getting up
f pay scale.
The company: It insists its pro
gression compares favorably with
those of other businesses and
points out it is obliged to train
employes in telephone industry
methods, which they cannot learn
elsewhere.
The unions also demand a voice
in administration of the Bell System
pension plan, liberalized pension,
vacation, sick benefit, holiday and
premium pay provisions, promotion
and discharge by seniority, seniority
credit for maternity and union busi
ness leave, changes in grievance
procedure and other contract
changes. Federal conciliators be
lieve compromises could be arrived
at rapidly on most of these matters
if the principal issues were resolved.
House tuts to Make
Service 'Impossible/
USES Chief Testifies
By the Associated Brass
Robert C. Goodwin said today it
would be “impossible” for the
United States Employment Service
to “carry out its responsibilities”
in the next fiscal year because of
appropriation cuts voted by the
House.
Mr. Goodwin, USES director, ap
peared before a Senate appropria
tions subcommittee which is re
viewing $13,714,000 of reductions
made in the $31,850,700 budget
recommendations for the Labor De
partment.
Secretary of Labor Schwellen
bach was to have testified today, but
the coal and telephone tieups forced
him to delay his appearance.
Mr. Goodwin said the House had
voted the full amount, $71,728,000,
for grants to States in the fiscal
year that begins July 1, but had
approved only $900,000 for adminis
tration of the employment service.
He asked the Senate to restore $3,
012,900.
Otherwise, Mr. Goodwin said, sev
eral functions of the USES must be
curtailed or restricted. He men
tioned these:
Programs for employment of vet
erans and physically handicapped.
Closing of 12 regional USES field
offices.
Perry Faulkner, executive secre
tary of the Veterans’ Employment
Service, which operates under USES,
asked restoration of $893,800 that
fho Wnnsp hfl/T nnf from rmpratlncr
funds of $2,650,600 asked in the
budget.
Mr. Faulkner said the veterans’
job agency provides counseling and
employment placements for former
servicemen. He said that "locating
the right Job—a good Job—for a vet
eran at this time” may save the
Treasury “untold amounts of
money” that otherwise would be
spent on unemployment benefits or
other Federal funds already pro
vided by Congress for former serv
icemen.
61 AreKilled, 119Wounded
In Casablanca Troop Riot
By the Associated Press
CASABLANCA, Morocco, April 8.—
Sixty-one persons were killed and
119 were wounded in rioting yester
day during which Senegalese troops
fired into a crowd of Moroccans, it
was announced officially today.
The riot was said to have been
caused by a fight between a
Senegalese and a Moroccan over a
woman. Officials said order was re
stored.
The Senegalese are black troops
recruited in French West Africa.
The fight started in the African
quarter of Casablanca.
Officials said a number of Moroc
cans apparently attacked the Sene
galese soldier and that he went back
to his barracks for aid.
Groups of Senegalese about 50
strong made three sorties from the
barracks. They fired into the Moroc
cans after twice having been driven
back by the growing crowd.
A precinct captain of police died
today of stab wounds inflicted dur
ing the rioting. Police said he might
have been the victim of criminals
taking advantage of the disorders.
Another jtoliceman received knife
wounds.
'Fun—for Awhile/ Say Officials
Doubling as •Phone Operators
“It’s fun—for awhile.”
In general, that’s the view oi
switchboard work taken by male
management personnel assisting in
the effort to keep abreast of local
calls on the Ludlow telephone ex
change.
Ludlow subscribers form the only
group within the District still served
by an all-manual exchange. War
time material shortages have de
layed the long-scheduled conversion
to dial operation.
About two dozen persons, men
and women, were at work on the
switchboard floor of the exchange
building at 629 B street NJ5. yester
day. They would not identify them
selves individually, but a spokesmen
said all were employed regularl]
“above the first level of supervision.’
Most of the women were said t<
have had operator experience. The]
appeared confident of their abilit]
to keep pace with traffic reaching
their positions on the board.
Men Work With a Will.
The men, drawn largely front
office and plant supervisory staffs
also were handling plugs and asking
numbers with a will. But the]
seemed to be taking rest period!
more frequently than the women.
One of the men handled company
business calls at a desk and stood b;
as relief operator.
“Wonder what we’ll get to eat’
Wonder if they’ll have steak?”
“Steak? That doesn’t come unti
you’ve worked until 3 am.”
The management men were hun
gry. The strike ended regulai
cafeteria service, but the compan]
had made arrangements to keej
those on duty supplied with food
I t
“Well, we’re keeping the calls
moving, but we’re an expensive
bunch of operators,” commented
one of the men as he took time oat
for a cigarette.
5,000 Subscribers Served.
•Die exchange serves about 5,000
subscribers. They would have been
given dial equipment several years
ago if the war had not made mate
rials unavailable, officials said.
Many of the switchboards were re
moved from the building when the
new Franklin exchange, a dial op
eration, was opened around the cor
ner on Seventh street.
Ludlow now is scheduled to be
come a dial exchange sometime in
the summer. The only other cus
tomers still dependent on a manual
system are a few thousand in sub
> urbs on the fringe of the company’s
Metropolitan Area system.
No office or maintenance opera
tions were in progress in the Ludlow
building yesterday. As a reporter
and photographer left, a woman
picket asked "How are the lights
on that board? I hope those peo
1 pie have lots of lights—plenty to
keep them busy.”

Roxas' Aide Denies
Charges.of Graft in
Disposal of Surplus
■y (h* Auociotid Prist
MANILA, April S. — President
Roxas’ secretary today denied state
ments charging graft, corruption
ami wholesale theft in disposal of
surplus American military goods
being turned over to the Philippine
government.
Secretary Emilio Abello declared
that “most of what is being pub
lished is not founded on facts.”
Mentioning assertions that sur
plus towels had been sold by the
Philippine Surplus Property Com
mission to non-priority buyers who
were not the lowest bidders, he said
“not a single towel has been dis
posed of so far.”
Representative Hermenegildo Ati
enza told the Philippine House of
Representatives last night that
graft involving millions of dollars
marked disposal of surplus goods
by the American Foreign Liquida
tion Commission and the Philippine
Commission.
Senate Majority Leader Vicente
J. Francisco said he was preparing
a resolution asking a congressional
investigation of the matter. Rep
resentative Jose T. Nueno said he
and other members of the House
would ask Mr. Roxas to enforce
an executive order permitting gov
ernment examiners to check bank
accounts and other assets of gov
ernment employes.
Mr. Atienza asserted that after the
Liquidation Commission completed
a $60,000,000 transaction with the
United States Commercial Corp.
there was a “scramble” among high
United States Army officers to retire.
Mr. Atienza declared that the
United States should permit no high
omcer to iinve uie ariuj uuui xxxa
bank accounts were examined care
fully.
United States Army quarters
maintained silence on all charges,
but the' Foreign Liquidation Com
mission was understood to be pre
paring a statement._ -
Suit for Maintenance
Filed by Mrs. Uline
A maintenance suit by Mrs. Caro
line Uline, 68, of Toledo, Ohio, today
asked District Court to restrain
Migiel J. (Mike) Uline, owner of the
ice firm and arena, temporarily from
disposing of any of his holdings
here and instituting divorce action
against her in another jurisdiction.
Mrs. Uline, in a suit filed through
Attorneys William E. Leahy and
James F. Reilly, also asked “rea
sonable” maintenance and support.
The suit said the Ullnes were
married in June, 1895, and have
two adult children. It claimed Mr.
mine deserted her about 1930 and
moved to Washington. It also was
charged that Mr. Uline, whose age
was given as “over 72,” has “inter
mittently made small remittances
averaging $50 a week and recently
gave her a check for a thousand
dollars," all of which was said to
be inadequate for her maintenance.
She estimated his wealth to be
over a million dollars.
According to the suit, Mr. mine
threatens to dispose of all of his
holdings and institute divorce pro
ceedings in “some foreign Jurisdic
tion.”
Frederick J. Ball, attorney for Mr.
mine, said he had no knowledge
of the suit, but that Mr. mine does
not contemplate disposing of his
holdings. Mr. mine is ill, the
attorney said,'and not available for
comment.

New Jersey Will Try
To Force Telephone
Strikers to Work
ly th* Auoctolad Prtw
TRENTON, N. J., April 8.—Gov.
Alfred E. Driscoll last night asked
ire State Legislature to amend New
Jersey’s anti-utility strike law in
m effort to force striking employes
>f the New Jersey Bell Telephone
3o. to return to their jobs.
With telephone service in the
State crippled despite State seizure
5f the company, Gov. Driscoll asked
the Legislature to strengthen the
law by providing for arbitration “in
cases involving essential public
utilities and by the inclusion of ap
propriate penalties for failure to
comply with the law and a refusal
to work for the State during the
pendency of proceedings.”
“The legislature,” Gov. Driscoll
said, “will be asked to consider this
legislation immediately.”
Meanwhile, he said, he was call
ing on the telephone workers “to
return to their accustomed duties
Immediately” and on the telephone
company and its employes to imme
diately resume negotiations “and
to comply with the spirit and letter
of the New Jersey law.”
The present utility strike law pro
