Hosier of Pcnnsly- vnnln stnto college told of research which "strongly Indicates n rcln- llonshlp between the occurrence of coal mine explosions and the prcs- suro changes accompanying cer- tain (wenther) situations." He snld tho research shows "the feasibility or forecasting periods of dangerous accumulation combus- tible gas mixtures in coal Hosier prepared his report for tho 20lh annual mooting of the Am- erican Geophysical union.

Do daspcrl, lender of tho vic- torious Christian Democrats who claim nn absolute majority in the new Chamber of Deputies, assailed ns fantastic the communist declara- tion that coercion from the United Stales was responsible for tho defeat of the communist-led popular front. Grave Accusation Do Qasperl told a. news conference this wns a "very grave nccusatlon." Actually, DC Gnsperl snld, the gov- ernment had asked the United States several weeks ago to send n large quantity of wheat to Italy by May. There were Increasing signs of confusion and even dissension In the ranks of the Popular Front, par- ticularly In the wake of a. proposal by left-wing socialist Giuseppe Ro- mltn that the pro-communist social- ists would attempt to "regain their Independence." A spokesman for De Gnspcri said tho premier undoubtedly would head tho new government after Parliament organizes. Interior Minister Mario Scclba estimates tho Christian democrats won 307 of the 574 Chamber of Deputies seats in the election to 182 for the popular Front. The of- ficial result still nwalls a labor- ious mathemntlcnl calculation on iho basis of proportional represen- tation. In tho Senate tho Chris- tian Democrats took 130 of the 237 elective scats, to 74 for the Popular Front.

Lewis moved today to put his S100 a month miners' pension plan into despite blunt notice that he may have to foot the bill himself. The mine union boss called a late afternoon meeting of the three- man trustee board responsible for administering the still-untapped miners' welfare fund. The purpose of the session pre- sumably wns to consider definite rules for paying S100 monthly pen- sions to miners 62 or older. Such payments were agreed upon in prin- ciple by two of the three trustees, Lewis, representing the union, andj Senator Styles Bridges (R.-N.H.i.j the neutral member. Ezra Van Horn, the third trus- tee representing the coal mine own- ers, fifed suit yesterday asking that Lewis nnd Bridges be held person- ally liable for any money spent from the fund on the Lewis-Bridges pact terms. Van Horn said the plan is illegal under the Tart-Hartley labor act. Approximately more soft coal miners today answered tho rc- turn-to-work call of Lewis. In- complete reports indicated at least of the 400.000 bituminous minors arc now back at work. Delays in calling together local meetings for a formal vote on re- turning held up work resumption in many areas. Some locals won't hold such meetings until late today or over the weekend. Leaders of the United Mine Workers and oper- ators agreed a full scale resumption by Monday was virtually certain. Late yesterday about 125.000 min- ers out of the nation's soft coal diggers were in the pits.

House Units Tiff On Price Supports Washington The congres- sional farm bloc, already split by the butter vs. olco battle, was torn farther npnrt today. The which dispute House this time is ovejc committee should dltlons preceding all 41 major mine conflicting explosions In this country during inUlci'al.lon, write new price support legislation. The banking committee and the agriculture committee have offered the past 12 years. Records of weather stations clo- sest to the explosion sites seem to Indicate, Hosier snld, that, In gene- bills The for House con- ruins committee go to the must decide which will floor for n vote. The banking committee late yes- terday voted a two-year extension on the same basis, but the champ turned it down. ITow could possibly find nny use for bowls of borsch t?

Of course a few years ago when Joe- was really the rock 'em, sock em kid. he might have made a lot of money with those ice skates. He could have exchanged them for bi- cycle.1; and sold them to his oppo- nents. Il' Joe's gonna give away any of those skates I'd be pleased if he'd give me a pair.

By a voice vote, the Senate adopt- ed an amendment by Senators Yovms (R.-N. and Russell tD.-Ga.) pro- viding for federal subsidies and loans to farmers. This action came shortly alter ap- proval of an amendment authorizing the government to pay half the cost of houses for severely paralyzed vet- erans. Under Agriculture The farm housing program would be under direction of the Agricul- ture department. Loans would be up to 33 years at not more than four per cent Interest. The goal of the bill is building of new homes in the next tea ycnrs. The bill now ROCS to an uncertain fate in Uic House, The House banking committee let a similar Senate-passed measure In JO-lfi.
