Dismissal of Appeal Ends
Ml. Clemens Portal Case
■y th* Auoclatvd Pram
CINCINNATI, April 9. — The
Mount Clemens (Mich.) Pottery Co.
portal pay suit, which touched off
similar claims for nearly $6,000,000,
000, has faded Into oblivion—re
moved from further consideration
by any court.
The end came yesterday when the
Sixth United States Circuit Court
of Appeals here dismissed an appeal
of Local 1083, United Pottery Work
ers, from an adverse lower court de
cision in their suit for $100,000 retro
active pay judgment against the
Michigan firm.
The union local last week asked
that its appeal be dismissed with
prejudice,” and counsel for the com
pany agreed to the action. At the
same time. Attorney General Clark
advised that the Government,
"while not consenting to dismissal
of the case, urges no objection
thereto.”
The workers had appealed a de
cision of Federal Judge Frank A.
Picard at Detroit throwing out the
action on ground that the amount
involved was trivial.
In Detroit, August Scholle, presi
dent of the Michigan CIO Union
Council and responsible for a large
part of the original litigation in
1942, commented:
“I’m quite certain there are many
bona tide and legitimate suits pend
ing, and without any question they
will be pressed by the plaintiffs. • * *
I don’t think the dismissal of the
Mount Clemens case will prejudice
these other pending suits at all.”
Mr, Scholle insisted the Mount
Clemens case was a dispute over
overtime and could not be described
accurately as a portal pay suit.
Pennsy Manhattan Limited
Derailed in Collision
■y th» Associated Pres*
CANTON, Ohio, April 9.—Two
engines and 6 of 14 cars of the
Pennsylvania Railroad’s ChicAgo-to
Nerw York Manhattan Limited were
derailed here last night after col
liding with a freight train, but 250
passengers were only slightly shaken
up.
John Hermick, 31, of Rochester,
Pa., a fireman on one of the loco
motives, was overcome by smoke as
he attempted to extinguish a small
fire in the cab, but was released
after receiving emergency treatment
at Mercy Hospital.
Hot coals from the limited’s en
gines started several other small
fires under the passenger cars and
in three box cars, but Canton fire
men quickly extinguished them.
The passenger cars remained up
right, straddling the ties, and most
of the passengers remained in their,
seats. There was little confusion.
When the accident occurred, both
trains were proceeding in the same
direction on adjacent tracks. Train
men believed the accident happened
when a swaying box car leaned over
too far and was struck by the first
of the passenger engines.
