West Orders
Rail Strikers
Back to Work
Pay May Cease
BERLIN - (W) - The Western
Commanders last night ordered
14,000 Berlin rail strikers to go
back to work.
They said the strikers would re-
ceive WOD per cent of their wages
in West marks, their No. 1 de-
mand, and said they would be cut
off the rolls for unemployment
compensation if they did not pick
up their tools by next Tuesday.
the strike "probably will be set-
tled" on the basis of the West-
ern Commanders' plan drafted
last night at a stormy meeting.'
The non-Communist strikers, who
walked out 35 days ago causing
what amounted to a second block-
ade of the city, called a meeting
for this morning.
Blaming the strike for 'para-
lyzing Berlin's economic life,
the commandants said the high
direct cost to the city in un-
,#employment relief for railway-
men was 379,000 West marks
($109,100) a week.
The city was ordered to stop
relief to strikers who do not re-
sume work by Tuesday. An excep-
tion was made, however, for men
wlo are afraid to return to em-
ploymnent with the Soviet-con-
trolled railway system. They may
keep on relief by declaring in writ-
ing the intention of looking else-
where for work.
* *, * *
THE STRIKERS have been
drawing unemployment relief and
union benefits in West Marks.
This was better than an East mark
pay envelop when they were work-
ing. The West mark is worth
about four times the East mark.
The commandants said the
strike no longer was justified be-
Soviet Maj. Gen. Pavel Kvash-
nin had assured them that
former strikers would not be
victimized; because the foreign
ministers' Paris agreement ob-
ligated the four powers to re-
store Berlin to normal; and be-
cause the strike imposed "an
unwarranted burden" on the
Western Powers to bring in sup-
plies by air.
"They (the strikers) have got
everything that they struck for,"
declared British Maj. Gen. G. K.

Vote Pending
On Proposed
TwH Changes
Both Sides Claim
Edge inSupport
WASHINGTON - (A') - Both
sides scrambled yesterday for a,
handful of key votes in the Senate
battle over whether to keep Taft-
Hartley Law injunctions against
national emergency strikes.
And both sides claimed a slight
edge in the showdown slated for
Tuesday. The Senate has agreed
to vote then on the issue.
SENATOR TAFT (Rep., Ohio),
leader of the pro-injunction forces,
told reporters he is standing by
his prediction that "in the final
analysis, I think we will win."
His plan provides for both in-
junctions and government seiz-
ure of struck plants.
. In the other camp, Senator
Douglas (Dem., Ill.) said the ottt
come may hinge on how three Sen-
ators decide to vote. Douglas add-
ed that those opposed to injunc-
tions feel they can swing "those
crucial votes."
He was talking about the Tru-
man Administration bill to repeal
the Taft-HartleyLaw and replace
it with a slightly modified version
of the old Wagner Act. Douglas
favors some amendments to that
bill, but wants to get rid of all the
basic Taft-Hartley features.
The amendments the Senate
will vote on Tuesday give the
laymakers a definite choice be-
1. An amendment by Senator
Holland (Dem., Fla.) which pro-
vides for 60-day injunctions. That
plan is sponsored also by Hoey and
Republican Senators Schoeppel
(Kan.) and Bricker (Ohio.)
2. An amendment by Senator
Lucas (Dem., Ill.) which would
strike the injunction section out
of Taft's proposal and keep the
60-day seizure provision.
