Scant Progress Made To Avoid Strike In Lumber Areas PORTLAND, Ore., May progress in negoti- ations to avoid a strike which would slow lumber production and seriously slash the nation's newsprint supply was reported today by a CIO leader. James F. Fadling, president.of the International Woodworkers of America, said little progress had been made so far jn daily sessions with fir operators of northwest states. Another ses-' sion was held today. The union's members in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Mon- tana, and northern California have authorized a strike should negotiation efforts fail. A strike in Oregon and Wash- ington, along with the already existing British Columbia strike, would cut oft almost all' the log supply for the six mills which furnish newsprint to papers from Denver west. N e w s pr i n t manufacturers agreed that a general CIO lumber strike would force mills to close as soon as log supplies ran out. Fadling, however, has said that "every possible means" will be used for a peaceful settlement. The union demands a minimum' wage boost from to in the fir industry. OKLAHOMA CITY, May 23, of county primary ballots in ten counties has been delayed because of protests and supreme court suits .involving candidates ruled out by the state election board, Secretary J.

By HAROLD W. WARD WASHINGTON, May more than a third of the soft coal miners idle despite gov- ernment seizure of the mines, a White House conference sought today to work out u wage con- tract acceptable to both John L. Lewis nnd coul operators. Among tho conferees lit. the curly morning meeting were Sec- retary of Interior Krug, federal mine boss; Secretary of Labor Schwellenbach; Dr. John R. man, President Truman's labor adviser; and Reconversion Di- rector John W. Snyder. Vice Ad- miral Ben Morrell, Krug's lieu- tenant as government operator of the pits also joined the talks. Assistant Press Secretary Eben Ayres told reporters of the meet- ing, but did not say what steps had been taken toward drafting a settlement. The'picture was not rosy. The best that Secretary of Interior Krug could offer as government mine boss was a guarded "hope" that the end of the current two- week, truce Saturday would not plunge all the pits back into idleness. The first 24 hours of govern- ment seizure produced discouragj ing results from the administra- tion point of view. Thousands of miners, who had gone back to work under the truce, quit their pits. Mines Closed This mass return to idleness closed down an additional 243 mines, increasing the number im- mobilized by the bituminous dis- pute to more than out of total. The latest federal estimates are that more than a third of the soft. coal miners are now staying away from work. With the truce's end rapidly approaching, Krug ar.d Vice Ad- miral Ben Moreell, who is charg- ed with running the seized mines, weighed the newly-stated terms which Lewis submitted .to the government for settlement of the two and one half months old dis- pute. Study Lewis' Terms They asked for time to study all its particulars, after a full day of conferences with Lewis and his negotiating committee yesterday. Representatives of the solid fuels administration and federal social security board also participated in the preliininary discussions. Lewis' chief demand is for a seven' percent levy on the oper- ators' payroll to build up a union health and welfare fund, to be controlled exclusively by his Uni- ted Mine Workers. The secretary of was selected to operate the mines by virtue of his office as solid fuels it was "very possible that ihe govern- ment's position on all the prin- ciples (involved in a new con- tract) can be decided before Sat- urday night." Krug said, however, that "the execution of a contract within that time would be very diffi- cult." "I hope that if an accord can be reached on the things that make a contract appear certain, the workers can be kept on the he added. Floyd Hatchery Learns Three Of Fine Hens in Arizona's Egg-Laying Contest Stolen Tony Floyd, owner and oper- ator of the Floyd Poultry Breed- ing Farms, received word from Harry Emblelon, head of the University of Arizona poultry de- partment, that three of 13 birds entered in'an Egg Laying Test were stolen from a pen. One of the birds was third high and the pen was second high in the entire field of contestants. In iicltlition to the birds stolen from the Floyd pen. Tour birds were taken from the pen of H. L. Krcm of ItiKlcwood, Calif. University immediate- ly got in touch with Tucson po- licj and put detectives on the case. Two dnys after the birds were discovered to bo missing, a detective went to a house occu- pied by a group of University students and found all kinds of evidence _that Rhode Island Reds had been' dressed in that house. Threat Got Payment The detective working on the case could not get any individual or individuals to admit that they were implicated, so he threatened to place the whole group in jail unless they paid apiece for the missing birds. Later, the head of the poultry department re- ceived a check for which in no way would replace the birds valued highly by Mr. Floyd. At the end of seven months of the 24th Arizona Egg Laying Test, the second place pen, a pen of Rhode Island Reds owned by the Floyd Poultr5' Farm of Ada, had laid 2.169 eggs, more than the first place pen; due to the egp, size being smaller his has a point value.1 of only while the first place pen had gathered points. One Hen Was "Star" One the birds stolen from the Floyd pen, a Rhode Island Heel, had luid 313 L'Kgs to niti1 third in tin.- I'lilin; lust. The bird was second in the number of eggs, but ngnin the size of the eggs put the bird in third place with points compared to 3-53.15 for the; leader. Mr. Floyd said that his pen of Rhode Island Reds in the Arizona test could not compare with oth- er pens because he wouJd have only 10 hens competing against 13 in other pens. He also lost all chances of having the high indi- vidual bird. At the Missouri Test, the Floyd Poultry Farm has the high Bar- red Rock lien. This test is being conducted at Mountain Grove, Mo He also has the high Rhode Island Red and high Barred Rock hens in the Oklahoma Test be- ing conducted at Stillwater. Mr. Floyd said that he hoped that some one does not steal his hens at the other two tests.

P. H. Probe Ending; Stimson Says FDR Considered Asking Congress for Attack on Japs WASHINGTpN, May congressional Pearl Harbor investigation ended today with a statement by former Secretary of War Stimson that President Roosevelt "was undoubtedly con- sidering" an attack on Japanese forces threatening South Asia late in 1941.

Nor would he have act- ed without the consent of con- gress, the former cabinet member added. Stimson's answers went into the committee's record along with replies by former Secretary of State Hull to 169 additional ques- tions mostly about reputed agree- ments with the British for par- allel action before the Dec. 7, 1941 attack. Hull denied knowl- edge of any such agreements. Konoye Memoirs Included Also included in the record, now closed to further evidence, was a copy of the memoirs of Prince Konoye, Japanese premier whose cabinet fell in October, 1941. By Konoye's account, he press- ed, peace negotiations with the United Stales in good faith. How- ever, the prince quoted .Foreign Minister Matsuoka of his second cabinet as expressing conviction in 'May, 1941, that President Roosevelt "was apparently de- termined to enter" the European war. Chairman Berkley (D-Ky) call- ed the committee together today to receive these documents form- ally and to act on a suggestion Hint it request an additional 30 days to complete its report. The current deadline set by congress is June The investigation began last November Planned To Intervene The committee last March re- ceived a statement from Stimson covering his -recol- lection of events preceding Pearl' Harbor. In it, Stimson said the president's "war cabinet" reached the conclusion at a meeting No- vember days before Pearl Harbor that the United States should intervene with force if Japan moved against British or Dutch territory in South Asia. The so-called war cabinet was composed, of Hull, Stimson, Secre- tary of the Navy Knox, Gen. George C. Marshall, and Adm. Harold R. Stark. Stimson, in ill health, did not appear before the committee in person, so Ferguson drafted 61 questions in the nature of a ci-oss- (Continued on Page 2 Column 5) Seeking Nine More Calves C. of C.
