Lewis Demanding Health and Welfare Fund for Miners
WASHINGTON, March 13. UP) -—John L. Lewis, demanding that bituminous coal operators create a health and welfare fund for coal miners, disclosed today results of a nation survey of Hie miner s position under prese workmen’s compensation laws.
The statistics and conclusions reached in the survey were presented to the national bituminous wage conference of operators and the United Mine Workers by Harrison Combs, a member of the UMW legal staff.
The demand for a health and welfare fund was presented to the operators yesterday by UMW President Lewis, along with eight other proposals for the 400,000 miners which he asked the operators to bargain out before April
The generalized form of his demands was surprising to the coal producers, who expected a detailed set of demands for higher pay and a shorter work week, and possibly a resumption of his request for a ten-cents a ton royalty Last year he asked the ro\alty for a health and welfare fund.
Lewis introduced Combs to the conference and indicated he would follow with additional union representatives to present his case for increased pay with a shorter w*ork week, and improved protection against injuries.
Firm. but far from his usual dramatic self, Lewis caught op-eiators by surprise at yesterday’s opening session of the bituminous coal wage conference at which the industry had expected to hear a concrete pay boost proposal.
Demands Generalized Instead, Lewis laid down nine generalized demands, in-which he said the United Mine Workers U-?nt a new Peacetime contract adjusting a variety of problems, including “an increase of wages and reduction of daily and weekly working hours.”
A UMW spokesman said the union s bargaining committee will meet industry negotiatiors to base the wage issue on shorter hours and job classification differentials— and bargain the best increase they can get.”
Other major demands in the one-paragraph proposal Lewis banded the industry include:
LA health and welfare fund for mine workers.
2. "Adjustment of the controversy regarding unionization of supervisory, technical and clerical employes—an issue which
TOurtenC* UP *n supreme
3. Adjustment of vacation. severance, and holiday pay.
On none of the points was Lewis specific.

ussian force at Karaj, only 20 pines from the Iranian capital, included Sherman tanks. These are American armored monsters which were Lend-leased to the Russians for use against the Ger-mans. Any Russian employment or Lend-lease arms in Iran und-er the present circumstances could provide the basis of new American diplomatic protests to the Soviet union.
Reports of large Red army reinforcements moving into Iran put a new strain on Russian-American relations today and threatens a critical test of UNO s powers to preserve peace.
Note Asks Information The reports have yet to be formally confirmed or officially denied, but this government has sent a note to Moscow askings what the Russians are up to and why.
Also the reports have sufficient weight to have prompted an official state department announcement that they had been received.
i T*10 , department’s statement last night said its information was to the effect that “during the last week additional Soviet armed forces and heavy military com-bat equipment have been moving southward” from the direction of the Russian border toward the Iranian capital of Tehran and toward that country’s western border.
The western border divides Iran from Turkey and oil-rich Iraq.
Objective Ponte Officials here are frankly puzzled as to the Russian objective rn sending more troops into a country from which it was supposed by international agreement to have withdrawn all its forces by March 2.
Speculation on what the Rus-sians may be up to covers three possibilities. Diplomatic believe (.1) they may be trying to force
a pro-Soviet government on Iran, or (2) to bring sufficient threats of force against Turkey to win territorial concessions and rights in the Dardenelles, or (3) that

The union, in its announcement of the settlement, said this company promise “meets the 19*4 cent increase recommended by President Truman.”
“In addition.” the union said, “there are other economic clauses —improved vacation pay, which alone amounts to approximately $5,000,000 a year; improved overtime rates for seven-day continuous operations and equal pay for women—which brings the total average hourly increase to well above 19^4 cents.”

General Strike In Trieste Off, Now Tension Is Easing
TRIESTE. March 13.— (A*)— A general strike which had halted work throughout the British-American zone of disputed Venezia Guilia province was called off today as a four power-Allied commission continued its on-the-spot investigation of conflicting Italian and Yugoslav border claims.
The strike had kept the city in a state of high tension, which was increased by a surprise demonstration yesterday when nearly 100,000 persons paraded past toe commiss'on’s Headquarters.
The Italo-Slovene anti-Fascist union, sponsor of the strike* said the strike was “suspended” as a sign of willingness to collaborate with Aided authorities although military government officials had turned down a request to disband the civil police.
The strike was called two days ago as a protest against the killing of two persons by police who were removing a Slovene flag from a church in a suburb of Trieste.

OKLAHOMA CITY. March 13. —(/P)—A meeting of the executive committee of the state League of Young Democrats will be held here Sunday to formulate plans for the coming political campaign.
State President Burl Hays announced appointment of three district chairmen to serve with five others already selected. New ctoirmen are Willard Gotcher, McAlester, third district; Finis Gillespie, Hobart, seventh dis-and Claude Love, Oklahoma City, fifth district.
Hays said the league will publish a newspaper and set up a state headquarters with an executive secretary.
Costing Many Millions
The prolonged strike already has cost General Motors upwards of $550,000,000 in unfilled orders. The wage loss to the strikers has been calculated to date by the nation at $127,690,000 and by the management at $144,866.-000. The union figured the work week at 40 hours and the corporation at 45.6 hours.
The UAW-CIO originally demanded a 30 per cent wage rise, asserting that much increase was necessary to maintain the wartime take-home pay. When a presidential fact-finding commission recommended an increase of 19t* cents (17 5 per cent) the union accepted the proposal, but management rejected it and countered with its 18V* cents (16.5 per cent) offer.
Several Secondary Issues Other issues involve a union demand for the setting up by the management of an “equalization” fund with which to equalize what it termed “inequities” in wage rates for identical work in diffident plants.
