News Released Prematurely An American intelligence chief said agents were endangered at the last moment by premature release of news of the impending raids and by the sudden lifting of p.m. curfew for Ger- mans in the American zone by the military government. Advance news on the raids had not been scheduled for transmis- sion outside Germany originally until four hours before the raids occurred, the intelligence chief said, because of fear of a leak since Germ.ms are employed in both the American and British communications systems. He said the news was trans- Germany and Austria. There was evidence the plot also spread into the Russian zone. The well-financed attempt to revive nazism began even as the thunder of guns died away on G e r m a n y' s battlefields. But wrangling between two factions of the movement tipped counter- espionage agents to its existence, after its cunning leaders had completely taken in even some American military government officials.' Arrests of the inner circle be- gan as long as three months ago. In the Saturday night Sunday morning raids 800 more were jail- ed.

Wide Open Battle Looms This Week on House Floor and OPA Likely to Lose Some Powers Miners Will Rest for Week So Says Lewis, As Schwcl- Icnbach Gives Up Hope Of Preventing Coal Strike By HAROLD W. WARD WASHINGTON, Mar. of Labor Schwellen- bach, giving up hope of prevent- ing a nationwide soft coal strike set to begin Monday, appointed a special mediator tonight ami ex- pressed hope the shutdown will be a short one. The secretary told a news con- ference after talking with John L. Lewis, United Mine Workers president, and the operators that lie had concluded the controversy could be settled better without forcing n commitment to extend the old contract. Lewis, at a brief news confer- ence, after Schwellcnbaeh's state- ments, said "the situation is un- changed." "The contract expires at mid- night Sunday. The production of coal will cease. The miners will stay at home with their families and take a rest next week. "There will be no picketing. Everything will be normal. All the mines will be manned with maintenance men and the miners will just wait for a fair deal to be given to them by the operators and a fair contract to be nego- tiated. "No matter how long it takes they will wait long enough to in- sure that that be done." Lewis, in serving notice lie would terminate the present agreement at midnight Sunday night, had said he would not con- tinue the old contract because the miners had been "defrauded" out of retroactive pay in times past. Schwcllenbach said ho had re- ceived assurance from Lewis that where a utility is dependent on coal production for continued operation, some provision for re- lief will be made.

The government bank note printers demanded that their pay be put on a cost-of-living basis, starting h apiece monthly of the dollars they print in such profusion. Commenting on the security council action asking both Russia and Iran for further information, Ala expressed "gratification at the recognition by the council of the principle that negotiations in the true sense of the word can- not take place between two gov- ernments when the troops of the one are present in the territory of the other against its will." Ala released the text of the letter from Secretary General Trygve Lie requesting additional documentation after yesterday's council session. Lie told Ala he had been instructed "particularly to ascertain from the representa- tives of the two governments and report whether or not the report- ed withdrawal of troops is con- ditional upon the conclusion of agreements between the two gov- ernments on other subjects."
