And he promised to spend most of his time in the coal regions and in the mines, whereBoyleseldom went. Then, after his swearing in, Miller promptly fired all but four members of the 24- member executive board of the union and also dismissed general counsel Edward L. Carey and Suzanne Richards, executive assistant to Boyle. Miller then appointed his own men to fill 14 of the new vacancies. Joseph A. "Chip" Yablonski, son of Boyle's murdered 1969 opponent, was appointed to replace Carey.

Three executive board members dismissed Friday by Miller, didn't have much to say about it Friday night. James W. Ridings, district director of District 19, Middlesboro, told UPI, "I have no comment at this time."

Beane of District 30 at Pikeville was not available for comment.

(UPI) President Harry S Truman, 88, slipped to near critical condi- tion Friday, but slowly im- proved through the day. His wife made a rare nighttime trip to her unconscious husband's bedside. Research Hospital spokesman John Dreves said doctors "were year-old Truman early Friday when his heart began to beat irregularly, his blood pressure dropped and he slipped into unconsciousness. The change in Truman's condition delayed for nearly an hour the morning medical briefing at which Dreves said, "I have no doubt that if I had had to make a report at about or this morning, I would have had to say he is critical" He showed some improvement, however, and they had expected the fluc- tuation of vital signs to ac- company the improvement of Truman's kidneys resulting from, the use of a new in- traveneous method of feeding amino acids. Mrs. Truman's visit at night was the second time Friday she had traveled the IS miles from the family home in Independen- ce, Mo., on ah unscheduled trip to the hospital.
