This was related by the presi- dent to his news conference, while on Capitol Hill Capt. Gran- ville Conway war shipping chief, said that Harry Bridges had agreed to accept a wage increase of 22 rents an hour for his CIO Longsnoremen. In view of this, Conway told a house labor subcommittee inves- tigating the scheduled strike of maritime unions at midnight, "it seems reasonable to me thai it be setllcd" this afternoon. Bridges' objection to the 22- cent figure has been one of the perhaps the stumbling blocks separating unions and operators and the government from an agreement. His decision now to take it, as reported bv Conway, convinced Chairman A. B. Kelly (D.-Pa.) of the house groups that the strike was "over." Bridges Threatens Another Bridges had given ground bit- terly, and even as he brightened the prospects of averting the strike now, he flung a threat of another maritime eritis in little more than three months. He hinted he would take the 22-cent figure only until Septem- ber 30. Mr. Truman said that the laboi department was his source of in- formation about a good prospect for settlement of the controversy before nighlfall. Conway lold the house group tnat the only thing left to be worked out was an agreement re- garding retroactive pay for the west coast seamen. What Conway hopes will be the final negotiations session was set for 2 p.m., May Be No Stoppage Conwaj testified that Bridges had reported: If final agreement ls. reached this afternoon there will be no interruption of work. His insistence of 23 cents an hour has been a block in the gov- ernment's drive for a general settlement with the seven-union committee for maritime unity cljliniinK to represent -00.000 workers.
