S. weekend deluge of publicity for Prince Philip of Greece and Den- mark today whetted the British people's expectation that the handsome, 25-year-old court fav- orite soon would become engag- ed to Britain's Princess Elizabeth in the "royal romance" of the year. Th r e e nationally-circulated newspapers devoted considerable space Sunday to Prince Philip, and a blessing on the reported Engagement came from an unex- pected source Tom Driberg, left wing labor member of Par- liament, no admirer of the Greek royal family, who described the prince as "intelligent and broad- minded, fair and good-looking.1 "It seems fair to interpret his request for British citizenship as, in part, a desire to be disentang- led from Greek politics perman- ently." Dribcrg wrote in his Rey- nolds news column. Prince Philip, sixth in line for the Greek throne, will forfeit his right to succeed his second cou- sin George II of the Hellenes by becoming a British subject. Newspaper writers stressed that Prince Philip, who served in the Royal. Navy during the war, has spent most of his life in Eng- land, has English blood (he is Princess Elizabeth's third cou- sin) and frequently is a week- end guest nl royal, residences. "It is no secret at court that Uncle Dickie the family mime for. Lord the Prince's uncle is a whole hearted supported of the mar- riage." said the Sunday Pictorial, adding: "Close friends of the Princess smile and say: 'She's very young but she knows her own mind'." PITTSBURGH, Dec. 9 The soft coal miners trooped back to their jobs today and resumed production of desperately needed fuel, ending a 17-day work stop- page that crippled the nation's economy. Spear-heading the back-to- work movement by the Mine Workers were the diggers in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, which has about one- half of the soft coal miners. Early reports from these fields showed miners generally obeyed John L. Lewis' order to return to work. although full production may not be reached before Tuesday or Wednesday. In the coal-rich Pittsburgh area only a couple of large mines were reported idle and union- ists explained work would be re- sumed at these as soon as the official work notice had been re- ceived from the union. Fuel Sorely Needed Among the mines re-opening were captive pits of such stee: corporations as U. S. Steel. Jones and Laughlin, and Republic Steel. Fuel was sorely needed by in- dustry and to warm homes and schools across the country. The back-to-work movement, which came after nearly 300.000 other workers had been idle and complete economic paralysis was threatened, started yesterday at three small Ohio pits. Clcan-uo crews and shifts of "cat-eye" cutters worked through the night at many mines to j ready them for the 6 A.M. shift, today the first operation in 18 days. President John P. Busarello of UMW District 5. embracing Pitts- burgh, said 02 percent of his 000 miners voted to return. Some Still "Sore" "They're plenty sore over the raw deal we got from the gov- Busnrello said, "but they are going back because Le- wis requested them to go back." William Haynes. UMW chief in Uniontown. Pa., coal fields, said all pits there are expected back in operation within two days, "because the union and miners still are squarely behind Lewis and always will be." The miners generally were calm and quiet as they prepared to go back to work. But many echoed the words of one Library. Pa., digger who moaned: Halts Lay-Off Rise "I hate to go back with noth- ing to show but three weeks' lost pay. And we'll probably have to do it all over again next April." Calling off the walkout, dra- matically announced by Lewis at a news conference Saturday, halted a rising tide of unemploy- ment and ended drastic dim-outs over more than a score of states. Railroads, steel and other coal dependent industries prepared for a quick recovery from the al- most disastrous effects of the walkout of miners. Rescinding of layoff orders that would have sent unemploy- ment soaring into the millions within a few woks assured many of a merry, instead of the bleak Christmas in prospect a few days ago.

There has been no court action on either of the cases. Strong No-Strike Pledge For Industries Government Goal Fumbled (an Of Blazing Gasoline Costs 11 Lives 1 SASKATOON, Sask., Dec. flames which the fire chief said "moved like a solid wail" swiftly turned the Barry hotel into an inferno before dawn Sunday, killing 11 persons and injuring IB. The fire was the worst in Sas- katchewan history and the- worst in Canada since the Queen's fire in Halifax in- 1939 when 211 died. A can of gasoline, inexplicably placed beside the kitchen range, appeared to have caused the holo- caust. Fred 'Fries, a waiter, said the cook called him to the kitchen when he found the g'as range blazing and the can of gasoline shooting flames eight feet high. Fries grabbed the gasoline can and tried to run into the street with it but bumped into a fright- ened-guest. The can fell and roll- ed into the hotel lobby.

Tlie government pushed fpr an iron-clad mi-strilto pledge in key industries today in the wakr of its victory over John-L. Lewis in the coal strike.

Some labor leaders conceded privately meanwhile that the ad- ministration's stand against Lew- is may discourage another round of strikes in the steel, automo- bile and similar major industries which have 'contract agreements expiring in the next few months. These leaders noted that as long as the Smilh-Connally war labor disputes act remains in ef- fect, President Truman has the power to- seize plants or indus- tries where strikes were in pro- gress or threatened. And seizures could lead to prosecutions such as Lewis faced. Busy Weekend City that in suburban Coral Gables. i _ WASHINGTON, Dec. 9..

Hearing Set For Jan. 14 Arguments by Counsel For Both Sides to Be Heard On Contempt Conviction WASHINGTON, Dec. The supreme court today agreed to give a quick ruling on the val- idity of the contempt conviction of John L. Lewis and his United Mine Workers, in the soft coal strike. The- high court set Tuesday, January 14, for hearing argu- ments by counsel for both sides. A decision could come any moment after arguments ara completed. The high court acted on a gov- ernment plea of the public interest case bo taken out of the hands of the U. S. court of appeals hern and speeded to a final, "authori- tative decision. Lewis and the union were con- victed for contempt in ignoring a U. S. district court order intended to head off the 17-day soft coal strike which was ended last Sat- urday. Their fines totaled 000. Saves Month Or Two Today's action means a final decision can be expected a month or two earlier than if the issues involved had been decided first by the court of appeals. Lewis in calling off the strike at least until March 31, said fu- ture contract negotialions will be "within the limitations of the findings of- the supreme court." He said one of the reasons ho end- ed the strike was to enable thti court in considering his case to be "free from public pressure superinduccd-by the hysteria arJ frenzy of an economic crisis." Jubiliant over the week-end surrender of Lewis which ended the economy-wrecking walkout, officials familiar with, the government's legal strategy expressed confidence that the top court of the land would take jur- isdiction for an showdown. May Delay Decision But these officials as well as union nides said that with the strike over the court probably will put the case on its regular calendar, rather than docket it ahead of other matters. This might nut off a decision until February. In tin.- wake of Lewis' siidiii-n mid dramnlii: capitulation Satur- day, the nation hustled to get in- dustrial wheels turning full speed again.

The Capitol dome glistened under floodlights again. Lewis ordered his men back: to.the mines under Die terms of the same contract with the gov- ernment which he declared void Nov. 35 five days before the start of the strike. He said coal production would continue until April J. but this docs not neces- sarily mean another strike at that time. Never scour china or pottery.
