WASHINGTON, June 22-()-
Soft coal contract talks began
once more tonight just eight days
before the present work agree-
John L. Lewis and soft coal op-
erators broke up a negotiating
session tonight without comment.
They set another meeting tomor-
The lack of comment from
either side on the way the taks
went may indicate progress. At
least the negotiators were smiling
when they left and kthere was no
sign of a new break in the talks.
Lewis and the operators came
together at the suggestion of a
Presidential Board of Inquiry in-
vestigating the dragging dispute.
The new talks followed by a few
hours a sweeping court victory for
Federal Judge T. Alan Golds-
borough had just upheldthe
$100 monthly pension plan that
Lewis wants for aged members
of his United Mine Workers.
The two sides came together
first before the Board itself. This
group was named by President
Truman under the Taft-Hartley
Act to determine by tomorrrow
whether the contract dispute
threatens "national health and
safety." If the board so finds, an
injunction against a strike is re-
garded as likely.
Lewis and operator spokesman
Charles O'Neill both protested to
the Board, headed by Attorney
David L. Cole, that each is willing
to bargain in "good faith" for a
contract to replace the one ex-
piring June 30.
"Okay, show us," the Board said
Thereupon, after hot wran-
gling from seats four feet apart
in a steaming hot hotel confer-
ence room where the inquiry
board was holding its meeting,
Lewis and O'Neill agreed to
Earlier, Lewis told the Board
that the coal miners already are
under two Federal Court injunc-
tions. He said with considerable
confidence that if the government
holds off getting another now he
can bargain out a new agreement
without a complete mine stoppage.
The contract negotiations broke
off a week ago when the operators
walked out saying that Lewis
wouldn't talk contract terms.
O'Neill said Judge Goldsbor-
ough's ruling hasn't changed the
operator's position: That the pen-
sion battle is up to the trustees
once the operators pay their 10-
cent tonnage royalty contributions
to the disputed welfare fund.
