NEW YORK (A)-The new Re-
publican mayor, John V. Lindsay,
took a personal hand yesterday
in transit strike talks, with a bid
for an armistice that would set
idle subways and buses running
again. Union leaders rejected his
Lindsay's intervention was de-
scribed as signaling an all-out City
Hall effort to end the five-day
transit crisis.
The tieup is estimated by busi-
ness sources to be costing the city's
economy as much as $100 million+
a day. Nearly five million passen-
gers normally use the 800 miles
of city-owned subway and bus
lines daily .
Commuters Clogged
Highway and commuter rail ar-
teries continued clogged as mil-
lions sought means of getting
about the nation's largest city.
Many businesses suffered near-
paralysis when employes and cus-
tomers simply stayed at home.
State Supreme Court Justice
Abraham N. Geller postponed for
24 hours a scheduled afternoon
hearing to determine if the Trans-
port Workers Union should be fin-
ed for calling the strike in viola-
tion of a court injunction against
Geller granted the delay at the
request of a three-man panel of
strike mediators, who asked time
"to continue efforts to mediate,+
looking forward to settling this
"I was prepared to go forward,"
Geller declared.
It was Geller who Tuesday sent
union chieftain Michael J. Quill
to jail-from which he shortly
was transferred to Bellevue Hospi-
tal after suffering a seizure.
Quill was reported much im-
proved yesterday, with physicians
claiming uncertainty as to wheth-
er he had suffered a heart attack.
He was the target of a barrage
of nasty calls from irate New
Yorkers, but they were intercepted
at the hospital switchboard.
Lindsay's first move was to press
upon the striking union a propo-
sition that their members return
to work while details of their con-
tract deadlock are threshed out
with the Transit Authority.
Quill's successor as chief bar-
gainer, the union vice-president,
Douglas L. MacMahon, turned
down the armistice proposal, say-
ing "No contract, no work."
MacMahon, calling Lidnsay the
"fourth mediator" in the deadlock,
said he told the mayor the whole
problem in the negotiations was
simply a matter of money.
Pressing Hard
The Transit Authority has of-
fered a money package of approx-
imately $29 million, while union
demands add up to about $216
million-leaving a gap of $187 mil-
lion to be bridged in the peace

a settlement," said Woody Klein,

to explore every single avenue."
Klein said Lindsay regards the
transit crisis as increasingly
"much more urgent and much
more serious."
Lindsay is reportedly under
heavy pressure by the city's busi-
ness interests' to do something
about the strike. His armistice

In a letter to President John-
