The declination of Glen K. Shurtleff to -act as third arbitrator brought with it-the necessity of fur- ther discussion of a name to com- plete the proposed arbitration board. Only the matter of the disposition of the men pending the arbitration pro- ceedings prevented a vote on the ar- bitration articles being taken last night. President Dupont refused to accept Avery's suggestion that the strikers, pending arbitration, take their old positions. The company formulated articles of submission of arbitration to go to the men today together with a counter- proposition that pending arbitration enough men to complete the service will be taken back, those hired los- ing their seniority. It is 'llie opinion of Vice-President Behner and Presi- dent Farasy of the local union that the men will emphatically vote down the arbitration proposals of the com- pany.
