miners union may straightarm its way into the United Mine Workers which is the main source of funds for the whole CIO Lewis adherents are already shouting this is a conspiracy be tween the operators and the AFL that steel consumers of coal are behind the rebellious operators that his friend Mr Roosevelt did not tell Fanny Perkins to start mediation Some measure of truth may ex ist for these
