Ask End To
By The Associated Press
As 10 thousand more soft coal
miners joined the parade from
the pits yesterday, 10 senators
urged that the Senate Judiciary
Committee study formulation of
a bill which would stop the "usurp-
ation and abuse of power" by John
L. Lewis' three-day work week.
The bill would forbid labor to
monopolize control of industry.
It was favored in a report by the
senators, who made up the entire
membership of the Senate Bank-
ing Committee which investigated
the short work week.
THE REPORT was sent to the
Judiciary Committee, which han-
dles anti-trust lgeislation, as the
total number of miners idle rose
to nearly 62,000.
Banking Committee chairman
Maybank (D-S.C.) and Son.
Robertson (D-Va.), leader of
the inquiry, told reporters that
the group unanimously approv-
ed both the report and the pro-
posal to send it for study to the
However, Senators Douglas and
Thomas said the Committee did
not approve the report but merely
sent it on to the Judiciary Com-
mittee for what it might be worth.

THE REPORT said that almost
every witness who testified in the
Banking Commi'ttee's inquiry
"agreed that the United Mine
Workers of America had a com-
plete monopoly, not only over the
labor supply in the coal industry,
but over management and busi-
ness of the industry itself, by its
imposition of the three-day work
week upon that industry."
Most of the nation's 400,000
soft coal miners are affected by
the short work week. Of those
on strike, 30,000 are from hard
hit Pennsylvania, where 52
mines are shut down in the
western part of the state.
A flood of new strikes broke out
there and in West Virginia yes-

steel companies were hit.
