A spokesi.-n said the council will meet Wednesday to decide whether to endorse the tentative agreement with the mine owners or recommend that union officers return to the bar- gaining table. Picture Changed The agreement, c o n c 1 u ded after two and one-half months of negotiations, had raised hopes of ending the strike afler two weeks. The council recessed for the night Friday without endorsing the pact and was to return Sat- urday. But the slaying changed all that.
