1974 010175 LIBRARY LS NEWSPAPERS BOX 789 Miller may have to reopen coal negotiations irinni 11ivf 4S By the Associated Press United Mine Workers Presi dent Arnold Miller may have to reopen negotiations with coal industry representatives before he can sell a proposed new contract to his striking union Little progress was reported Monday in the UMWs efforts to achieve ratification of the tentative agreement reached last week A union source said Miller might have to return to the bargaining table with the coal industry to win some modifications in the proposal before it can receive approval of the unions bargaining council Industry spokesmen have in dicated that such bargaining would only be to consider a possible redistribution of bene fits not a fattening of the overall contract Nevertheless a United Mine Workers official from Illinois said he expected that the pro posed settlement to the coal strike will be rejected over whelmingly because it stinks Tom Shoemake a UMW dis trict board member said Monday he has visited with at least 200 r a n kandf il e members who oppose the wage agreement Shoemake said he doubted that the UMW bargaining council will approve the settle ment If the contract is passed State suggests safety changes on page 3 unchanged however he said he will urge rejection by the membership and predicted its failure by a 501 margin in Illi nois About 10 per cent of the unions miners live in Illinois they are bound to abide by the outcome of a national ref erendum on the proposal Meanwhile the strike by the 120000 UMW members af fecting mines producing 70 per cent of the nations soft coal entered its second week to day Discussion of the proposed threeyear contract by the bargaining council was sched uled to resume today after a threeday recess because of the apparently unrelated slaymg last Friday of a UMW offi The bargaining council must approve the contract proposal before it can be submitted to the union members It seemed virtually certain the strike would extend another two weeks since UMW officials say it will take another eight to 10 days to get the contract ratified once it is approved by the bargaining council The strike already has idled more than 15000 workers in the railroad and steel industries And government economists claim if it lasts as long as four weeks it will cause major dis ruptions to the nations econo my resulting hi as many as 40000 layoffs The nations two largest steel producers announced steps Monday to cut production U S Steel Corp the nations largest steelmaker said it would start shutting down en tire plants if miners do not return to work by Dec 1 Bethlehem Steel Corp the No 2 producer said it is banking four coke batteries at its Spar rows Point Md plant and laying off 175 of its employes there Two sections that may have to be renegotiated by Miller concern wages and vacations union sources said Saxbe denounces FBI dirty tricks Washington AP Atty Gen William B Saxbe has refused to go along with an FBI request for legislation au thorizing emergency dirty tricks against domestic po litical organizations The split between Saxbe and FBI Director Clarence M Kelley surfaced at a news con ference Monday as the attorney general denounced toe disrup tive tactics employed in FBI counterintelligence operations for 15 years ending in 1971 Saxbe said he has taken steps to prevent a repetition of such tactics But he indicated that he leans against any legislation forbidding them outright I dont think that you can pass laws that would com pletely foreclose any such ac tivities he said Instead Saxbe urged Con gress to create a joint House Senate committee to monitor the daily operations of the FBI I think this is one of the greatest safeguards that we could have in this country he asserted Emphasizing a different ob jective Kelley asked for leg islation to permK the FBI under emergency situations to do some things which coun teract the effectiveness of militant groups at the extremes of the political spectrum Kelley has been pushing the proposal for almost a year but the Justice Department has refused to adopt it Illinois asks change in lottery laws Washington AP Federal rules and restrictions governing state lotteries will cost Illinois an estimated million annually Ralph Batch Illinois Lottery superintendent today Batch testifying before a federal commission on the review of gambling laws asked for legislation to allow the mails within a state to sell tickets notify winners and send promotional materials He also that broadcast media be allowed to announce winning numbers and to telecast lottery drawings The fact that intrastate mail subscriptions are pro hibited discriminates against many citizens especially older people who cannot conveniently get to a sales agency said Batch The electronic media restrictions which prohibit the televising of weekly drawings limit our ability to inform and dem onstrate how the lottery w conducted This is vital we believe in maintaining the integrity of the lottery Even the posting of winning numbers operates un der a hardship since only au thorized agents and news papers are allowed to display them Batch said under existing federal restrictions it costs n linois for a singlo delivery of promotional material to the 11000 sales agents because it cannot UM the U S mails Nixon tape

that Paul a Nixon reelection committee attorney had con cluded that Mitchell did sign off on this thing The more OBrien thinks about it Haldeman said the more it bothers him with all he knows to see

Ehrhchman was one of those included in the White House transcripts made public by Nixon last spring Strike ties up Greyhound buses New York AP Greyhound buses which usually carry about 190000

Mississippi could not prevent outofstate companies without Mississippi business licenses from suing in state courts for breach of contract In another decision the court ruled unanimously that former employes of a bankrupt firm have the same priority in col lecting back wages as the gov ernment does in collecting in come tax withholdings Gov ernment attorneys had argued the taxwithholding claims
