union, who said he would confer with
members of the railroad labor board
here to get support to prevent car
riers from requiring maintenance of

Another indication of a drift to
ward peace was seen in the state
ment of R. A. Hening, chairman of

tho refusal of eastern roads to agree
to reinstate strikers with their full
seniority rights was preventing a set
tlement as far as the roads were concerned.
Possible extension of tho strike was
forecast in the statement of William
