Unions Will Settle
If Officials Promise
To Meet Conditions
WASHINGTON (M--A two-day
railroad firemen s strike, which
disrupted segments of the nation's
economy, appeared to be nearing
an end last night under the gun
of a judge's back-to-work order.
H. E. Gilbert, firemen's presi-
dent, said he would call off the
walkout if certain conditions were
met by the railroads. They in-
cluded: no reprisals against the
strikers, 'no damage suits against
J. E. Wolfe, chief negotiator for
the railroads, pledged there would
be no reprisals against individual

' misled by the union officers," he
told newsmen in Chicago.
He added that the question of'
filing damage suits, or of seeking
contempt action against union
leaders, would be up to each rail-

appeals court declined, 2 to 1, to
stay a restraining order issued
against the strike by U.S. Dist.

of higher taxes and a variety of

If the situation reaches an acute
stage, the administration would
have to answer the hard question
whether to move openly to keep
the Saigon regime in power.
But if the U.S. moves overtly

of any government that might suc-

likelihood, it is believed, such a
government could be "lived with"

lands said that elementary and
secondary schools were closed yes-

Thursday on the expiration of a
1963 ruling by an arbitration board
that the carriers could eliminate
up to 90 per cent of their yard and
freight firemen. Since the ruling,
approximately 18,000 firemen's
jobs have been wiped out.
Reason in Dispute
The exact reason for the strike
is in dispute. Gilbert said it is
because the carriers declined to
negotiate on a union demand for
a program of apprentice training
to fit firemen for engineers' and
Industry officials contend the
real reason is to compel the car-

lost by the arbitration award.
