UMWA President Calls Off Coal
Strike At Request Of Roosevelt

Pastors Offer
ide Variety

WASHINGTON, June 29. -(1P)
- John L. Lewis, president of the
United Mine Workers of America,
tonight called off the soft coal
strike set for tomorrow night at
the request of President Roose-
Lewis agreed with Duncan Ken-
nedy . of Charleston, W. Va.,
spokesman for Appalachian pro-
ducers, to continue the mines in-
operation at present wages and
hours through July 31 if the oper-
ators accepted. Kennedy had no
power to bind the operators to
his agreement, but he predicted
they would accept it.
WASHINGTON, June 29. - ) -
John Lewis, president of the United
Mine Workers, ordered all his mem-
bers in the soft coal industry to stop
work Sunday at midnight.
In the absence of any White House
action after the collapse of wage
negotiations with Appalachian pro-
ducers, Lewis sent out telegrams to
6,000 locals directing them to "sus-
pend mining of coal Monday."
He estimated 450,000 miners would
be affected by the strike call.
The union's - district presidents,
gathered here for wage parleys, im-
mediately left for their field head-
quarters to direct what may prove to

be the biggest soft coal strike in the
nation's history.
Meantime, the operators looked to
the White House for intervention.
President Roosevelt said at his press
conference Friday that he hoped
present wages and hours would be
extended until Congress acted on the
Guffey Coal Stabilization Bill to set
up a "Little NRA" for the bituminous
By mid-afternoon neither Lewis nor
the operators had heard directly from
the White House, and plans for the
strike went forward.
"We're wiring our local unions this
afternoon to the effect that the joint
wage negotiations have not been fruit-
ful and that the joint conferencehas
recessed, subject to call by its chair-
man at some future date'," Lewis said.
"The local unions and their mem-
bers are instructed by the Interna-
tional Policy Committee to put into
effect Monday instructions set forth
in a letter sent them June 1, 1935,
and suspend mining of coal Monday."
While Lewis was talking to re-
porters, the district officials filed past
him one by one, and shook hands.
They all exchanged "good luck."
Asked about union strike funds,
Lewis said:
"We're amply prepared to meet this
situation for any amount of time

service has requested that everyone
attending the service come provided
with blanjets or camp stools as these
summer gatherings have been planned
to be informal and more like a "school
outing" than a lecture.
A large crowd is expected to at-
tend the service according to Dr. Ed-
ward W. Blakeman, Counselor in
Religious Education. This meeting
will mark the first of its kind ever to
be presented on the campus. Dr. W.

Church, has been selected for the
speaker at the second vesper service

Champion Stays With Par
To Defeat Fred Haas In
Final Round
Victor Eliminated
Kocsis 3_Days Ago
Winner Takes Crown After
Being Runnerup In Last
Year's Tournament
WASHINGTON,. June 29. - (A') -
Climaxing a week of great golf, young
Ed White of Texas kept level with par
over a long route today to whip gan-
gling Fred Haas of Louisiana State,
5 and 4, and win the national Inter-
collegiate championship.
The 21-year-old player from Bon-
ham, Tex., ended his three year quest
for highest college laurels with one
of the finest stretches of consistent
golf in the history of tje tournament.
Through the five rounds of match
play - a total of 129 holes for him -
he was three under par.
As a sophomore two seasons ago,
he lost to Rodney Bliss in the second
round. Last year he bowed to Charles
Yates for the championship.
His route this time wasn't easy, for r
he was forced to bowl over Charles
Kocsis of Michigan, the co-medalist,
as well as Yates, before he ran into
the tough 19-year-old boy from the
cotton country,
Although his margin was decisive
today, White had no easy rival in the
tall, former southern amateur cham-
pion. Through the first 27 holes
neither ever held more than a two-
hole advantage. In fact, White was
one down after the first round, but
he lost little time going ahead after
the second round again and once on
the home stretch he unloosed a brand
of sub-par golf that was too good
for Haas.
