ESSEN, Germany, April 2 (/P)— British authorities attempted by a radio appeal tonight to halt a scheduled one-day strike tomorrow of the Ruhr’s 300,000 coal miners as a protest against food shortages.
William Asbury. British commissioner for the Ruhr area, said German officials at his “urgent request” had agreed to broadcast an appeal to the miners to remain on the job.
Demonstrations were scheduled to accompany the strike in each coal-producing town.
As a prelude to the huge walkout, 21,500 miners walked out today at Gelsenkirchen and 8,000 at Bochum. At Remschied, 20,000 workers—^not including miners—staged a demonstration.
North German coal control officials said the walkout at approximately 170 mines in the British-controlled Ruhr was expected to cause a loss of almost 500,000 tons of vitally needed coal.
Asbury described himself as ‘’seriously concerned" over the strike which he said would hamper the
coal export program to other European counirtea.
de\egates attending a strike con-
WTO ’aotbm \jbtw tbat tbe Walkout would not “produce a single extra slice of bread and may result in lower rations all around.”
Asbury disclosed that upon learn-mg wheat was being barge-loaded at l>ulsburg for shipment to the American zone he asked If it could be diverted into the Ruhr and said he under&tood lYval \m tons ot Ms shipment were now at the disposal of the Ruhr area.

to do, and when. Those trees must have had a great publicity agent in the beginning (I suspect Steve Hannegan), because they have certainly been sold to this city. Taxi drivers apologize for the late blooming of the trees. Room clerks become positively vicious about the weather, which they think is to blame. Newspapers defend the trees and say it Lsn’t their fault at all. The radio goes to bat for the trees and says they are doing their very best. I dare guess that the first bloom will be given the key to the city, a top hat, and will be ridden ‘ up and down Pennsylvania Avenue' until it wilts. i
The biggest mistake the Japanese I ever made was in attacking Pearl! Harbor instead of the cherry trees. The loss of thase trees would have thrown Washington into .such a turmoil that we might never have rallied sufficiently to win a global war.

A Telephone Strike Does Not Make Sense
Telephone people are well paid.
Their wage rates have been increased 63% in the last six years.
In addition, throughout the period our employees have continued to receive their regular wage increases based on merit and length of service.
They have good working conditions.
Their work i$ steady.
They have seven holidays and up to Ihree.week Jec.tions with pay.
They have sickness benefits end pensions—with fuii cost paid by the Telephone Company.
UNION DEMANDS TOTAL $66,000,000.00 A YEAR!
• This is equal to an average of $3 a month per customer.
• Basic wage demands alone average $18 a week per employee.
• All told, the demands would cost the equivalent of 70c an hour per employee.
The Company he. offered fo erbitr.fe basic wages (the Union's major demend).
We say again: A telephone strike does not make sense.
