Stassen, returning here for a wlndup speech tonight, was even more careful than his lending op- ponents in predicting the outcome. In sharp contrnst to the confi- dent way in which he forecast be- fore hand the victory which later came to him in Wisconsin, the for- mer Minnesota governor told his backers in a statement: "If you follow through to the closing of the polls, I believe we will win first place in a close race In this primary."

Somo European diplomats who huvo conferred recently with top American officials bollevo the is- sue of pence in Europe may be de- termined by Italian voting, Washington officials tire especial- ly hopeful that the whole question of communist, participation In the.

Somo Colombian government lenders as well as some other Latin American officials already have charged thnt communists engineer- ed tho whole bloody and destructive affair. United States officials, how- over, while reporting that the com- munists tried to make capital of the violence onco II; started, have ru- frained from assessing full blame.

Prec. Lewis Still Faces Trial For Contempt Mine Chief Tells Strikers to Go Back to Work Washington John L. Lewis got a pension plan lor his miners today and told them to go back to work, but tills failed to save him from an order to stand trial for contempt of court. Federal Judge T. Alan Golds- borough ruled Lewis must come into court Wednesday at 9 a. m. to face a contempt charge for allegedly ignoring an April 3 court order to call off the strike. Welly K. Hopkins, attorney for Lewis, argued in vain that a tele- gram Lewis sent the miners shortly before GoldsborouRh's court opened was "full faith" compliance with the stop-strike order, Thnt telegram snld: "Pensions granted. Agreement honored." United Mine Workers headquart- ers made public this telegram. In the hearings before GoldsborouKh. it developed that another telegram also wns split union lenders. This .siUd flatly thnt "Your voluntary cessation of work" should end and coal production be resumed. The Untied Mine Workers lender .sent the telegram uftcr accepting n plan for pensions at line 02 for miners with 20 yean Hcrvlcc who retired after May 28. 1940. Fund Set Up That was the date a mine workers welfare fund was set up. It la financed by ten cents a ton royalty on ouch ton of conl mined. Members of the United Workers otherwise eligible for the pension will get it even though they worked in mines which have not paid the royalty. This plan was proposed by Senator Bridges (R.-N.H.) as a compromisa of Lewis' demand for for all miners age GO with 20 years service regardless of the date they retired. Ezra Von Horn, representing the mine operators in negotiations with Bridges and Lewis opposed the Bridges plan but was out-voted. All Oils was concluded before Goldsborough's hearing on an order for Lewis to show cause why he should not. bo held In contempt. Thou thn JudKe'it that Lewis must stand trial Wed- nesday, Before Goldsborough acted, there had been every indication that tho miners would go bnck to work. But the news that Lewis would have to stand trial raised a question with some labor observers here whether the Miners might decide to stay out n, while longer. The first reaction before Golds- borough acted. Indicated a return. At Pittsburgh, a district leader of tile United Mine Workers said, a retum-to-work movement would begin upon receipt of the telegram. "It looks i-o me like the miners will bo going buck to said William J. Hyncs, president of UMW district -I, which includes tlie rich Unlonlown coal and coke producing nren.
