Operators Split on Coal Negotiations Northern Group Ready To Talk with Lewis, Southern Group Remains Defiant By HAKOI.n W. WASHINGTON, Dec. 20.. A sharp split among soft coal op- nutitrs over whether to negoti- ate now for a new contract with John L. Lewis dashed hopes to- day for a quick nationwide peace between the industry and its miners. Profluccrs whose pits yield 00 per cent of the country's coal held themselves ready to dciil with the United Mine workers chief "at any convenient without waiting for a supreme court decision on his legal trou- bles arising from the November walkout. But the powerful Southern Coal Producers association, whose mines produce a 'third of thr annual sup- ply, broke away from the major- ity with decision to hold aloof uiitil the roinl.'i have hail their my. Far western mine owners indi- faicd they would go along with the southerners. Appeal Hearing Jan. M The high court will hear on Jan. M Lewis' appeal from 510.000 in fine? against himself and the United Mine workers, im- posed after the UMW chief Ignor- ed a district court order to head off the recent 17-day strike. Long-smouldering differences between the Southern associa- tion, biggest .single producing unit in the national negotiating committee, and Iho remainder of the industry broke into the open at a nine-hour meeting yesterday. The committee was adjourned sine any day set for j-eassemblin meant Dieir is scant chance of a na- tional conduct in the foreseeable future. Two Douhtlul Kuclorx Whether negotiations might soon bo started oven between Lewis and the industry majority still was doubtful because: 1. Lewis would not agree to a separate contract excluding the southern group when this was suggested in negotialings Sept. 11. after the Southern association balked at meeting terms of the government-UMW pact which ended last spring's strike. Lewis said the UMW conven- tion would have to pass on the question of whether to abandon the union's policy of a nation- wide agreement or none at all. In October the convention declin- ed to change this policy. 2. The fact that operators of the northern, midwestcrn and "captive" steel company mines expressed willingness to meet with Lewis did not mean they would make immediate overtures to the mine leader. These operators said they were not rushing into anything, but were merely re-affirming their stand of last spring that they were ready and willing to nego- iatc with Lewis any time. Lewis Prefers to Wail 3. Lewis himself has indicated he prefers to wait until the su- preme court has decided his con- tempt appeal, which may be about Feb. 1. One thing seemed clear: The next move is up to Lewis. The UMW president, in calling off the strike December 7, sale the miners would negotiate-wUh any groups authorized to make a contract. Lewis was in Springfield, 111., visiting his aged mother. A mem- ber of the family there said ho had no comment on the develop jnents.

Split-second reaction by two pllolH wore credited today with saving the lives of 85 passengers nnd crqw members of two Miiimi- bound airliners which collided feet in the' air near here in an accident unprecedented in American commercial, air travel. None of the passengers suffer- ed so much as a scratch, although both planes were damaged in the collision, which occurred in clear weather shortly after dark last night. The co-pilot of one, a big, four- engined DC-4 Eastern airlines craft currying 50 passengers, said he sow the other, a two-engined Universal airlines C-47, ap- proaching from the left three or four miles north of Aberdeen. He pulled his ship up at the last instant and scraped over the top of the Universal plunc, Eastern officials said. Hud Only Second or Two The co-pilot, R. Brown, of Mi- ami, said he had "just n second or two" in which to avert dis- aster. The pilot of this plane, J. B. Kuhn, also of Miami, told n reporter, "Brown saved the day." A three-by -five-foot hole was ripped in the tail section of the larger plane, while the Universal liner carrying 22 passengers nnd H crew of three on a charter flight, had n hole driv.cn into the upper portion of the fuselage, Us escape hatch wrenched free and Its radio and hydraulic system knocked out of commission.

'Y., Dec. 20. ..United...Nations atomic energy commission today approved "in principle" the United States atqmic control plan after. Soviet-Delegate Andrei A. Gromyko announced dramatically that he was withdrawing from the discussions. Gromyko did not leave the council as he did last April during discussion of tho Iranian case in the security coun- cil, but he made it clear that his silence was not a mere absention. Despite personal appeals from Great Britain and China for his cooperation, Gromyko flatly re- fused to vote. The commissi'on already had re- jected a Soviet demand that ac- :ion on the U. S. atomic plan be postponed and a-'Polish proposal that the American plan be sent to the commission's political com- mittee without recommendation. vote was on a Cana- dian' compromise, which provided that the commission approved tha "principles" set forth in the U. S. plan, but that .the final wording be left to the committee. The Canadian proposal previously had been accepted by the United States delegation. The vote was 10 to 0, with Pol- and abstaining and Russia's'vote uncounted, at the request of Gromyko. Gromyko reserved his right to speak .on the U. S. proposal at a "later stage."

'Shortest Day' Three Times This Year Has Three With Shortest Period of Daylight Hours Don't be surprised if you roll out of bed next Saturday or Sun- day morning and .find it's almost time to go back to bed. On a poll taken of Adans and college students at random, this question was asked: "What is the shortest daylight day of the Many of them said, "It's either the 20th or 21st of December." Others said, "It's the 21st or 22nd of December." And still others didn't know when it was except that it was sometime during the winter months. Well, the usually correct answ- er is the 21st of December since that day is the first day of wint- er. But this year, either the 21st, 22nd or 23rd would be right. This year's World Almanac shows that on December 21 the sun rises at a. m. and sets at p. m. The 22nd is exact- ly the same, but on the 23rd. the sun will rise one minute later and set one minute later, making' the actual length of the three days same. M. P. Hatchett, science teach- er'at East Central, explains this fact thusly: "The reason 'for the shortest day of the .year is that the sun vertical over the tropic of Capricorn." So if one of these three days you think you are running be- hind schedule, it is merely be- cause the' .day only contains 10 hours. But there is some conso- lation in the fact, that next June 21, the first day of summer, is the longest day in the year, at a season when we can- be outdoors and make th6 most of it.

Dec. mercial use of atpmic energy within five; years was predicted today by a group' of New Eng- land experts providing the gov- ernment gives the "green light" to industry. Atomic generation of electric power, they said, could be ac- complished at an original cost co mrnble to present modern methods and eventually for much less. These views wore expressed in n report by n New England coun- cil committee which includes in its membership Karl T. Cornrton, president of Massachusetts. Insti- tute of Technology and one of the developers of the atom bomb. Clearly Possible. Although no atomic plimln have been built, they said, "there now seems to be no question, from the purely technical standpoint, about the possibility of generating large amounts of power from Iho heat liberated during the opera- lion of atomic piles." Many factors, they added, would affect the speed with which the atom is put to com- mercial them gov- ernment financial support for re- search nnd re- lease of technical information commensurate with security and "provided that industry be given the green light to proceed with its own development." Elcctrlc.il Power In Five Ycnrx Granted those, they said, "it seems probable that within five years atomic piles could be oper- ating for the purpose of produc- ing electric The committee said it was dif- ficult to predict what the first commercial uses of atomic oowor would be put that "it seems likely that it will be for purposes need- ing heavy and continuous loads of power."

"A lot of the commit- tee said, would be necessary to bring about the practical utiliza- tion of atomic energy for indus- trial power to propel ships, turn the wheels of factories and light homes. However, the report said that electric power could be produced from atomic piles "at a cost com- parable with that from the most modern high-pressure tide-water steam central stations" nnd pre- dicted that eventually the cost "may go well below present pro- duction costs."

CIO Suggests That Steel Contracts Hold During Talks PITTSBURGH, Dec. 20, The nation's vast steel fabricating industry today studied a CIO- United Steelworkers' proposal that the companies agree to ex- tend present contracts until the union can work, out a 1947 pat- tern with basic steel producers. The request was made by Philip Murray, who heads both the CIO and the Steelworkers' union, at the conclusion of a series of conferences held here by the CIO's top-ranking strate- 174 members of tho wage-policy committee. Murray declared the union's action "indicates a desire of the union lo make a peaceable acrcc- ment in the industry" and added: "Approval of the plan will furnish the smaller unions an opportunity to accept the same terms and conditions provided for in the basic steel industry or negotiate for different condi- tions in such other ways as may be mutually satisfacory to both parties." The steel fabricators, which employ about 45 percent of the union's members, use as their raw material the steel pro- duced in basic steel plants. No time limit on the proposed con- tract extension was set. Most contracts involved expire Febru- ary 15, as. in the basic steel in- dustry where contract negotia- tions are expected to begin about Jan. 15. Will Submit Four Pacts Hopes for Quick Action On Axis Satellite Treaties Moscow Meeting By .TACK BELL WASHINGTON, of State Byrnes is re- ported r idy today for an early in of the new Republican-con- trolled senate's attitude on inter- national affairs with a request for action on four peace treaties with Axis satellites. Byrnes has advised interested senators he wants to place tho pacts with Italy, Bulgaria, Ro- mania and Hungary before thu foreign relations committee short- ly after they are formally signed J-Vb. A fifth Allied' tn-aly with been drufted, but will not come before the son- ata for consideration. The United Slnlcs was not at war with Fin- land and had no voice in the treaty terms. Sonic May Waul la Whilj he is expected to ask, speedy consideration in nn at- tempt to clear this hurdle before the March 15 meeting of foreign ministers in Moscow, there arc indications that some republicans will want to go deeply into the whole matter of treaty negotia- tions. Because It normally tnkes sev- eral weeks for senate committees to process an important matter of this kind, Senator Vandcnbcrif (R.-Mich.) has told it probably will be impossible for him to accompany Byrnes to opening of (he Moscow mooting. The Michigan senator apparent- ly feel., that he and Senator Con- nally both of whom have served as Byrnes' advisem at past foreign ministers' discus- sions, can not leave until the sen- ate net finally. Vnndenberg is slated to succeed Connally as for- eign relations chairman January o. Occupation Involvec" Byrnes' hope for quick action on the treaties reportedly is based in part on his desire to have the two senators with him in Mos- cow. But the underlying urge for speed is represented as stemming from the treaties' terms calling for the withdrawal of occupation forces in some of the countries in- volved. Russia promised to get her troops out of Bulgaria nnd to withdraw all but communications garrisons from Romania and. Hungary 90 days after the treaties are ratified by the four major powers and pul into effect by the former enemy nations. Thursday Had 36 Degree Maximum Was it snow or was it jusi heavy frost?
