not explain their withdrawal in informing association President G E Leighty of it Nov 1 nor did they announce it publicly They didnt give any reason at all said a spokesman for the association A spokesman for the engi neers denied it had anything to do with the longstanding and deepending feud with the fire men It was just that the operat ing brotherhoods have different problems from the
