Moody, bead of the Southern Coal Producers association, said today lio will fllo 11 chargo of unfair labor practices aRalnst John Lewis' United Mine Workers. By Harold W, Ward Washington John L. Lewis confronted the choice today of end- ing the 25-day coal strike or risk- Ing heavy contempt of court penal- ties for each dny it continues. There was little to Indicate, how- ever, that the United Mine Workers' chief meant to comply immediately with the back-to-work order des- pite the contempt citation slapped on him late yesterday. Top government officials said Lewis Instead appeared to be dig- ging in for a finish light in the com'Is. That fight is scheduled to start Monday before Justice T, Alan Goldsborouiih, the sumo Judge who lined him and the union in 194G for defying a similar court order. The lines later were cut to by the supreme court. The government paved tho way for a possible new contempt trial when It asked Gokl.sborouKh or- der Lewis to "show cause, if any" why he and' the UMW should not be punished for ignoring the end- strike directive issued last Saturday night. Goldsborough promptly signed the order, which also calls upon Lewis to sny why he shouldn't be held in both criminal and civil contempt, This leaves any possible penalties entirely up to the Judge. He could order a Jail term as well ns a fine if he found Lewis guilty. On Monday, Goldsborough will dispose of these throe major ques- tions: 1. Whether tho McOulro order should be upheld; 2. If so, whether it should be ex- tended to the full 80-day Injunction called for under the Taft-Hartley act nnd; 3. Whether Lewis and the union are in contempt for not ending the strike. If they fall to clear themselves of the contempt citation Monday, a trial will be held Wednesday. Water Shortage Hits Jerusalem holy city, al- ready short of food and torn by civil strife, was threatened today with a critical water shortage. An official announcement said one Thanks arid Welcome to Winona (An Editorial) Everybody likes a "pat on the back" and Wi- nona today can take a bow. When a top executive of. on organization tho size of Armour and Company, one of the na- tion's Big Five packers, emphasizes the excellent transportation facilities of Winona and praises the Winona Association of Commerce and its Industrial committee headed by J. R. ChappclJ, it is of no small consequence. Not only is this city getting a valuable new industrial plant which will employ up to 100 persons, but it will become a manufacturing and distribution center for live .states of one of the country's most potent meat packing and fertilizer companies. It is gratifying to know, and a stimulant to civic pride, that Armour and Company recog- nizes the natural advantages of Winona and selected this city as a site for their plant be- cause of "Its strategic location." It is likewise gratifying to hear the Armour company express its appreciation of the Wi- nona Association of Commerce and its Indus- trial committee which has been doing such an outstanding job for the last few years. Winona is fortunate in having such citizens as J. R. Chappell. Few realize the vast amount of time he has given over a period of years to bring in new Industries or to help others now located here. This is what John E. Sanford, vice-presi- dent of Armour nnd Company and head of the Armour Fertilizer Works, said. It's "music to the ears" and should impress everyone in Winona of just what sort of a city we have: "The excellent transportation facilities one of the main reasons that Winona was chosen as the key city in this five-state territory. "In line with our policy to give farmers the best service possible in filling their needs for commercial plant foods, we in- vestigated a number of proposed sites for our new plant and selected Winona because of Its strategic location. "We were particularly impressed by the facts that Winona is situated on the Mis- sissippi river, providing facilities for water shipments, and that it has ilve railroads and 14 truck line terminals. "We were also deeply impressed by the manner in which the Winona Association, of Commerce, particularly Mr. J. R. Chap- pell, prominent banker and chairman of the Association's Industrial committee, and all interested parties presented the facts about your city and its possibilities in so far as our company is concerned. Officials of the Association of Commerce and others did everything possible to co- operate with our officials and we appreciate their help deeply." To which, Mr. Sanford, The Republican- Herald, on behalf of all of the citizens of Wi- nona, R-rncIousIy says, "Thanks indeed" and "Welcome to our city." Minnesotan Dangerous G.O.P.

Madison Harold E. Stns- scn's triumph in the Wisconsin pri- mary swept him. into a formidable position as a contender for the Republican presidential nomination, a wide cross-section of the na- tion's press editorialized today.

But the Wisconsin primary "made no change whatsoever in the Re- publican said a number of the Hearst newspapers in an editorial entitled the Hour."
