U Takes New
Steps for Coal
Plans More Drastic
Than Wartime Effort
More drastic steps than those
used during the war are being tak-
en by the University in an effort
to conserve the University coal
supply, Walter Roth, plant
superintendent announced yester-
"We are taking steps more dras-
tic than we ever did during the
war. But to make these steps
really effective, we must have the
cooperation of the students," Roth
He asserted that the three point
program initiated by the Universit
several weeks ago has been effec-
tive in saving the limited coal
supply. The program includes
shutting down of ventilator fans,
turning off lights and heat in cam-
pus buildings at night.
Roth said that the heat may
have to be turned off in the swim-
ming pools, but that there was no
immediate plans for such a meas-
ure. He added that new cut-backs
in heating were being planned for
the holiday period.
"The greatest saving can be ac-
complished only with the students
help. Open windows are the most
prevalent sources of heat loss, but
the plant department cannot hire
a man per student to shut them.
4-Day Fuel
Supply Seen
Provost Adams Says
No Cause for Alarm
A check of the University's coal
stock yesterday showed a 40-day
supply on hand, Plant Superin-
tendent Walter Roth reported.
The last shipment of coal ire-
ceived here was delivered 10 days
ago. Roth was unable to report the
effects of the University's conser-
vation program since meter read-
ings are checked only once each
Provost James P. Adams, com-
menting on an Associated Press
report that the University of No-
tre Dame will be forced to close
when its present term ends unless
the coal strike ends, said: "We

That places the laundry prob-

contacted yesterday will be able to

to the utmost. Any great increase

Feeler Out
.For Strike
Truman To Go
On Air Sunday
By The Associated Press
John L. Lewis' camp put out a
peace feeler in the soft coal strike
today even as the CIO rushed to
join him in iis appeal against his
contempt conviction.
Meanwhile, President Truman
went to work on a major Sunday
night broadcast, in which he is ex-
pected to appeal to the 400,000
striking miners over the heads of
their leader.
William Green, president of the
AFL, with which Lewis' United
Mine Work'ers is affiliated, urged
the government to arrange for ne-
gotiations between the union and
the private owners for a settlement
which would end the walkout.
His overture was delivered amid
these prime developments:
1. The White House announced
the President will speak to the
country on the coal crisis at 8:30
p.m., (Central Standard Time),
Sunday. It seemed certain he will
urge the miners to return to work
-Deputy Jose Tesorieri, an ad-
herent of President Juan Peron,
proposed today that the Cham-
ber of Deputies rise in homage
to John L. Lewis and his strik-
ing mine union as a gesture of
solidarity of Argentine workers.
The chairman ruled the pro-
posal improper.
on patriotic grounds. And he
might have something to say on
the negotiations Green proposed.
2. With Lewis back in seclusion,
union attorneys filed formal no-
tice of an appeal from the civil
and criminal contempt convictions.
One of them, Henry Kaiser, said
steps will be taken to get the ap-
peal promptly before the Supreme
Court, but today's action was a pe-
tition to the intermediate Federal
Circuit Court of Appeals. There
was no word from judge, clerk or
counsel on the status of the bond
the union was ordered to post for
payment of its whopping fine.
3. Philip Murray, president of
the CIO, who broke with Lewis
four years ago, announced that
"We intend to take whatever steps
are necessary to participate in the
appeal." This might be done by
entering the case and filing a sup-
porting brief with the court's per-
mission or by assigning counsel to
join the defense staff, or both.
The fine and injunction against
the miners thus provided a rally-
ing point for labor's divided forces,
while bringing no end to the bi-
tuminous strike. Murray, once a
vice president of the UMW but
later Lewis' foe, declared the court
action "a shocking attempt to
force American citizens to work
against their will through eco-
nomic coercion."
Lunch Rooms
To Be Opened
Lunch rooms for students who
carry their lunches, will be avail-
able in the Union and League, be-
ginning Monday, Robert W. Wal-

drop, director of the Veterans
Service Bureau and chairman of
the Veterans University Council,
announced yesterday.
A committee of the Veterans
University Council headed by Hen-
ry Kassis, Student Legislature
representative, made the neces-
sary arrangements with Univer-
sity officials.
The Russian Tea Room in the
League and Rm. 316 of the Union,
which have been provided with
tables and chairs, will be open
each week day beginning Monday
from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Due to the large number of stu-
dents and staff members expected
to use the lunch rooms, Waldrop
has asked that persons using the





Trains Need
Travel Count
For Holidays
Estimate Now Will
Avoid Yule Tie-up
An urgent plea for students to
purchase their tickets now if they
plan to travel home by train for
the Christmas holidays was made
yesterday by Assistant Dean of,
Students Walter B. Rea and local
railroad officials.
"Students should buy their tick-
ets now and indicate what train
they desire to travel on, since this
is the only way the railroads can
find out how heavy the traffic will-
be," Dean Rea emphasized.
This statement was prompted
by a letter to the University
from the New York Central Rail-
road in which the line said they
were worried about their ability
to handle the throngs of home-
ward bound students at Christ-
mastime in view of further
slashes in passenger train serv-
ice. They asked University co-
operation to indicate how many
will be leaving Ann Arbor by
train when school closes Dec. 20.
Meanwhile, the New York Cen-
tral announced that ten more
trains were being cut from sched-
