Lewis today demanded that tho govern- ment act to end a court order dl- roctlng him to call off the coal mining stoppage. Tho demand, based on grounds that tho coal dispute hn.s been set- tled, was sent by tho United Mine Workers' chief to Attorney General Tom Clark. The letter was signed by Welly K, Hopkins, TJ.M.W, counsel. Tho order to which Lewis re- ferred was Issued April 3 by Fed- eral Judge Matthew F. McGulrc It directed Lewis and his union to get tho soft coal miners back in the pits. They had been out on strike since March 15 in n. dispute over pay- ments from tho miner's pension funds, About two-thirds of the 400.000 minors )mvo returned to work this week but tho others arc awaiting tho outcome of contempt of court action hanging over Lewis. Tho McGulrc order was obtained by the government under the na- tional emergency provision of the Tnft-Hartlcy labor law. This provision says thnt when a settlement Is reached in the dis- pute, the attorney general must ask the courts to discharge the anti-strike order. Tho attitude of the Justice de- partment lias boon that it doesn't know whether a settlement lias boon reached or not. Tho union claims that when Lewis and Bridges agreed April 112 on tho tentative terms of pension payments for the minors, tho dis- pute was scltlcd.

From now until Sunday the body of Roxas, who died of a heart attack Thursday, will lie in Malcnnan pal- ace, tho presidential residence. The state council, meeting with Qulrino, recommended that the Philippine Congress adjourn until after the funeral. The funeral will be accompanied by all tho honors this young republic can bestow. Burial will bo in North cemetery, where Manuel Quezon, the wartime president, lies.

Unit Renews Farm Price Supports After Oleo Tiff Washington The Dixie- Midwest battle over olco taxes to- day threatened a wider split in Con- gress over other farm legislation. The olco-butter battle exploded anew ycstcrdny In the House agri- culture committee after building up for days. And It drove a wedge be- tween the Midwest dairy country and the South, which producer, the cotton and peanut oil that go into oleo. The discussion, behind closed doors, was over whether to continue farm price supports to June 30, 1950. The committee finally voted approval, but not before reducing the support level of cotton from 92.5 per cent to 90 per cent of 'cotton heretofore has had the highest price support level of any basic crop. The new price support bill, which now goes to tho House floor, would put cotlon at the same level as other basic corn, tobacco, rice and peanuts. Although oleo taxes did not out- wardly figure in the committee ac- tion, the dairy country members demonstrated what might happen to other southern crop .supports If federal taxes on margarine are re- moved. The bill also continues supports on other commodities, ranging from GO per cent of parity to the highest support level in force for 3048, Among these products an; mill: and buUi-rl'al., poultry, ong.s, curtain dry beans mid pirns, .soybeans, flaxseed and potatoes. And dairy state members wrote in a provision which says .supports for milk and milk products cannot go below 00 per cent of parity. Without the continuing legisla- tion these supports would end De- cember 31, Finn Premier to Resign If Russ Pact Not O.K.'d Helsinki, Finland The Finnish Parliament, heading for a vote April 23 on the proposed Rus- sian-Finnish treaty, received a warning last night from Premier Mauno Pekkala that his cabinet will resign unless tho pact Is ap- proved.

United Nations Calls For Palestine Truce Success The United Nations security council early to- day called upon tho Jews n.nd nilM to ntop flKlitliiK In J'nlnntlnn. Tho council laid down wix HPB- clflc truce directives to the two factions but at the lost minute killed a. provision to send a tr.N. commission to the Holy Land to check an compliance. Russia refused to support the but Andrei A. dro- myko withheld his big-power veto and abstained. The Soviet Ukraine Joined Russia as usual. This made the final ballot 9 to 0. There was no assurance that cither the Jewish Agency for Pales- tine or tho Arab Higher commit- tee, representatives of Palestine Jews and Arabs, would lay down their arms. Direct efforts to bring them together failed previously and the council drafted detailed truce terms In a move to get their ac- ceptance and bring peace to the Holy Land. Mosho Shcrtok, head of the aRciicy'w political department, told the council In tho midst of the voting that the plan could not suc- ceed unless the U.N, sent a com- mission to the scene. As mandatory power in Palestine, the British have the responsibility for bringing the Arabs and Jews together. Both factions declined comment here. Indications were that the British would deal with the two groups on the spot. There is no direct enforcement provision in the truce terms. Gromyko refused to support the plan because the council overrode his demands that Arab armed bands be ordered to leave Pales- tine. Only the Ukraine supported him. Russia also opposed a ban on political activity in the Holy Land.

Mario Scelba, whose interior min- istry controls police, saiO in his last campaign speech here last night: "The government will be on the watch. If the liberty of the vote should be compromised, It would not hesitate to take the most radi- cal measures, even the suspension ot the elections."
