Final Efforts Made to Avert Philadelphia Transit Strike % By the Associated Press PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 10. —A last minute meeting was called: today in an effort to avert a city-wide transit tieup as 11,000 Philadelphia Transportation Co. workers prepared to halt their trolleys, buses and subways one minute after midnight. William H. MacDougall, Pennsyl vania labor mediator, announced that representatives of the com- i pany «md the CIO Transport Worker^ Union had agreed to confer with him. His announcement last night came a few hours after negotia tions in the company-union wage dispute collapse. Andrew Kaelin, president of the union's Local 234, said the workers had reduced their original demand from 25 cents an hour to 20 cents. The company, he added, held to its offer of 2 cents an hour. Charles E.
