In answer to Senator Taft's query whether he has any sug- gestions for, preventing1 a miners' strike, Lewis salid: "No, I don't. That's a matter of litigation before the court.

Charles Ross, presidential secre- tary, announced the delay in the proposed trip with this statement: "The trip has been Indefinitely postponed because ot developments." While Ross declined to elaborate, Senator Taft of Ohio, chairman of ;he Senate Republican policy com- mittee, told a reporter he and other congressional leaders had been ask- ed to talk at the White House Mon- day about the situation presented jy prospective British withdrawal of economic aid to Greece and the Greek appeal to tills country for inanclal help. The President shortly before had ;pent an hour and a half discussing iGreek relief- and other problems with his cabinet. Leaving the meeting, several members told reporters the subject had been brought up, but withheld details. Earlier, bean Achcson, act- ing secretary of state, had a private conference with the President. No Message In Prospect Ross told newsmen there was no immediate prospect of a message to Congress or a statement on Greek- British moves for American finan- cial assistance to the Greek econ- omy. The chief executive flew back to Washington last night after a three-day good will mission to Mexico and a stop off at Baylor university to tell this country that Republican-Herald Photo Floyd "Bud" Shafer, Arrested In Winona late Thursday afternoon for Menomonie, authorities where he faces a charge of man- slaughter, is shown here with Chief of Police A.

It is on this fact the likelihood rests that the 400.000 A.F.L. miners will keep on digging coal for the next three and one half months. Lewis, genial yet distant, would not reveal his plans at once. His lawyers could seek a rehearing. The Supreme court seldom grants one. To Rule on Issui-. But the tribunal's 7 to 2 decision definitely blocks any strike action until the case completes one more major phase. Federal Judge T. Alan Qoldsborough, who handed down the original contempt ruling affirmed by the high court, still must hold trial on the central Is- sue: Did Lewis have the right to break off his contract with the govern- ment last November, thereby pre- cipitating the 17-day strike?

Awaits Statement Congress was clearly awaiting the administration's statement, wWch Secretary of State Marshall said only Mr. Truman could make be- cause or the "transcendent" prob- lem involved. Just when the President would speak out was not clear. Some lawmakers said they looked for action before Mr. Truman leaves again tomorrow. Mr. Truman already has made clear his conviction that global economic cooperation is a "must" to achieve any degree of world stability. Budget Cut Asked in Treasury By William F.
