Newspapers Shut Down Threatened LONDON (CP) A joint working group made up of rep- resentatives from union and management will meet Friday to work out an agreement on a dispute which threatened to shut down all British national ncws- oapers. The working group agreed on following a warning jy the Newspapers Publishers Association that the original dis- pute at The Daily Mirror would, if it had reached breakdown proportions, result in a suspen- sion of publication by all major national papers. For some of Britain's daily journals this suspension would have meant a possibly-fatal alow, in view of their tenuous economic condition. The Daily Mirror dispute in- volved a differential between the. pay of machine managers and that of brake handlers at the mass-circulation tabloid. The worker group, known as the National Graphical Associa- tion, threatened to withdraw its 500 members at The Daily Mir- ror unless steps were taken be- fore the night of May 7 to in- crease the pay of the machine managers there. After 12 hours, of talks shortly before the deadline, an interim agreement was reached provid- ing for establishment of the joint working party, whose judg- ment in the matter should bind both sides. At least three national papers are said to be too weak to sur- vive a stoppage of publication which seemed possible prior to May 7 Sliovt Fishing Season Opens EDMONTON CP) A brief commercial fishing season open- end Monday in Lake Wabamun, 40 miles west of Edmonton.
