Rank and file revolt was threatened today Over a new contract that ended a four Day strike of Telephone equipment installers. As the installers withdrew heir picket lines in 44 states and the District of Columbia thousands of switchboard operators who had stayed off the car jobs in sympathy returned to work.

John Flanagan a Leader of the communications workers of America strike in new York predicted the installers would reject the proposed new tract agreed to Early today by Union negotiators. He added that he had received reports of Dis Content from other sections also. In Indianapolis Cwa Leader Kenneth a. Silvers went even further.

Supervisory employees took Over posts left vacant by operators who refused to Cross the installers picket lines. In South some operators were suspended for refusing to Cross picket lines set up where there were no Western electric installations.
