Some Indications Of Breaks in Big Labor Disputes By AlMcUUd PI-HI There were- indications today of possible progress in efforts ,to settle the 'nation's -major labor -disputes, Government officials in Wash- ington planned a new attempt to end the four-day old shipping strike which has tied up 543 ships in Atlantic, Pacific and gulf ports. In strike-bound Pittsburgh where an 11-day strike of power workers has curtailed general business, some AFL streetcar motormen planned to vote on whether to cross picket lines set up by the independent power union. Their return lo work would end one of the most severe transportation llctips in Pittsburgh's history and alleviate I ho effects of the work stoppage by the Duquesne Light Co. em- ployes. In Washington, the maritime commission arranged to invite west coast shipping officials to meet with east coast operators and commission members over the week end and seek to end Ihe maritime walkout. The. main obstacle to a settle- ment of the strike by CIO marine engineers and the.AFL masters, mates.and pilots was considered to be the west. coast deadlock over demands for more'union se- curity. The maritime commission wants a uniform settlement on both coasts and the labor depart- ment's compromise plan has been accepted by east coast shipown- ers and the unions. Rust, it is estimated, has claim- ed 40 per cent of all the tons of pig iron produced in the last one-half century. PARIS, Oct. 4 in angry words today accused United States and Britain of vio- lating their Big Four agreements by voting for nn Australian amendment to set up on interna- tional commission for supervision of Italian reparations The Italian economic commU- sion of the peace conference, which still must fix the amount Italy is to pay neighboring Allied steles, passed the amendment, 12 to 8, with France, China and the Slavic stales opposed. Under the amendment, an in- ternational consisting of the Big Four and countries receiving reparations would supervise pay- ments other than those to sia. These would go to Yugo- slavia, Albania, Greece, Ethiopia and Poltind. Soviet Speaker ABrered A, .A, Arutiuniun of the Soviet Union, visably angered, declared that the United Slates und Brit- ain had violated an agreement to a section of the Big Four For- eign Minister' treaty draft. American delegate W i 11 a r d Thorp and British Glenvil Hal! both protested that' the amendment was a new article and not a change in -en agreed upon portion of the draft. At one point, Australia removed the name of the Soviet Union from the list of members of proposed body after Russia pro- tested that she was not concern- ed with non-Russian reparations. When this led to further protests. A us t r.a 1 i a re-inserted Russia's name, whereupon Ai utiunian branded this an "electoral maneu- ver." Charges Prearranfement The Australian amendment, originally worded, would have given the chairmanship of the' commission to the United States on the ground that the 'United States as a non-claimant of repar- ations and a non-European power had a better "perspective." Arutiunian, terming this con- trary to the interests of the So-" viet .Union and oilier countries concerned, Australia of acting by prearrungement with other powers. "The Australian he said, "is undoubtedly counting on the voting machinery to pans its propos.il, especially since other delegations do not hesitate about violating the foreign ministers' agreement." American liecnmes Angry, TIM South Africa offered a sub- amendment to let the proposed commission choose its own chair- man. This cvcnlually can-led. Be- fore I he vole, however, Thorp said angrily: "Mr. Chairman, the United States delegation had the inten- tion of asking that the chairman- ship of this commission en- trusted lo some olher eounlry, but in view of the lotally unwarrant- ed atlack upon our motives we shall abstain from taking part in Ihe voting and will abide by the decision of the commission." Arutiunian countered with the assertion Ihut he would refuse to take part in the vote even to the extenl of abstaining. The sub- amendment was passed, 7 to 3, with five abstentions and five states listed as not voting. Jim Lester Gin, Mill .Creek, Oklahoma running every day. Bring us your cotton.
