Chicago UR Negotiations in the strike of Illinois telephone op erators were deadlocked Saturday as a union official said plans were under way to extend the tieup na tionwide Aftera Conference with concil iation and representa tives Friday A Beirne president of the National Federation of Telephone Workers announced he was setting in mo tion machinery to call out tele phone workers all over the coun try The conciliation conference sixth since the strike of 8700 Illi nois toll operators was called last Monday ended in failure Both sides refused to give ground in a wage dispute As he left the meeting Beirne said he would contact all locals immediately to give the strikers full support He added however that the N F T Ws 250000 mem bers would not be called out until all avenues of negotiation had been tested Beirne said he had appealed to Secretary of Labor Lewis B Schwellenbach to intervene in Teaching a settlement Members of the Illinois Tele phone Traffic union affiliated with the N F T walked off their jobs six days ago in support of demands for a S6 weekly wage increase The Illinois Bell Telephone Co had offered a pay boost in line with a recommendation from the telephone commission of the na tional war labor board but it was rejected The work stoppage tied up all but emergency suburban and long distance calls in and out of Chi cago and service has been vir tually suspended in downstate areas without dial phone systems Two northern Indiana counties also were affected Beirne head of the parent union boastingmore than 50 locals in 42 states came to Chicago

Roosevelt to Issue War Warning Washington un dersecretary of state Sumner Welles said Saturday he became convinced in mid September 1941 that war with Japan prob ably was inevitable The former state department of fjcial told the congressional com mittee investigating Pearl Harbor It had seemed to me from the middle more or less thatOhere was not the remotest chance of reaching a peaceful set tlement and that consequently hostilities would probably be in evitable The committee in later hearings will try to get at a fundamental issue racing it happened that our armed forces were taken by surprise at Pearl Harbor when men such as Welles had believed for some months that war with Japan was inevitable Welles was examined as the committee sought more details on vvny a proposed temporary agree ment with Japan was drafted and then discarded late in November 1941 and whether there was an AmericanBritishChincse Dutch agreement on joint action against Japan Welles also testified 1 He knew nothing of formal commitments amounting to an A BCD agreement although the United States and Britain did take actioK in warning notes to Japan 2 He had nothing to do with drafting or discarding a suggested temporizing modus vivendi pro posal to Japan but he didnt think it would have been acceptable to the Japanese under any circum stances 3 Former Postmaster General Frank Walker was one of the in fluential persons referred to by Japanese diplomats in reporting to their government they were go ing outside regular diplomatic channels in trying to persuade President Roosevelt 4 Welles considered Japanese demands submitted on Nov 20 1941 as an ultimatum to this country He did not regard former Secretary of State Cordell Hulls reply on Nov 26 as an ultimatum to Japan It was also disclosed that Brit ish Prime Minister Winston Churchill urged President Roose velt on Nov 30 1941 to issue a war warning to Japan Churchills request was read Into the records of the Pearl Har bor investigating committee Churchill believed a blunt warn ing to the Japanese might stop their aggressive program that brought the Pearl Harbor attack 7 days later He promised that Britain would make a similar declaration or share in a joint declaration if Mr Roosevelt would make one Church said the warning to Japan could be either secret or public and left it up to Mr Roosevelts discretion Whether Mr Roosevelt replied was not re vealed immediately Two messages from Churchill to Mr Roosevelt were read into the recordby Assistant Commit tee Counsel Gerhard Gesell They were transmitted from London under signature of John G Wi nant U S ambassador to Britain In the Nov 30 message Church ill suggested that One important method remains unused in avert ing war between Japan and our 2 countries namely a plain dec laration secret or public as may be thought best that any further act of aggression by Japan will lead immediately to the gravest consequences Churchill said he realized air Roosevelts constitutional diffi fact that only con gress can declare war So lie sug gested that Mr Roosevelt consider warning Japan that any further Japanese aggression would com pel you to place the gravest is sues before congress or words to that effect We would of course make a similar declaration or share in a joint declaration and in any case arrangements are being made to synchronize our actions with yours Churchill messaged Forgive me my dear friend for presuming to press such a course upon you but I am con vinced that it might make all the difference and prevent a melan choly extension of the war In a message of Nov 26 Church ill left up to Sir Roosevelt the de cision of whether to offer Japan a modus vivendi Automobile and Aviation company said that more Manufacturers
