Crack in Phone
May Be Near
Night and Day
WASHINGTON, Apr. 9—OP)_A
crack in the telephone strike dead-

hours today as negotiators went on
with day and night sessions.
Persons in close touch with the
negotiations on long distance lines
phases of the national dispute said
the only obstacle to a strike-
settling agreement for that Indus-
try segment was:
Who will pay the cost of arbi-
trating about five issues between
American Telephone and Telegraph
company's long distance division
and the American Union of Tele-
With that question settled, the
informants said, the proposed
agreement could be referred to the
policy committee of the 49-unlon
National Federation of Telephone
Workers for approval. The policy
committee scheduled a meeting at
2 p. m. (Oklahoma time).
Might Pave Way
An agreement as to long dis-
tance lines would leave strikes of
various local Bell system operators
unsettled but might pave the way
for settlement of the entire strike.
'As for the money to pay arbi-
tration costs, these Informants pre-
It will come from somewhere.”
At a night session running far
Into the morning, it was learned,
federal conciliators wrote ‘a 10-
point contract for the long-lines
dispute. It would have left a few
of the national Issues to be settled
Then the question arose of who
would pay arbitration costs which
might run $20,000.
The unions said they couldn’t
and the labor department said it
lacked the appropriations to do It.
AI1 Questions Involve Money
The questions to be submitted to
arbitration In the proposed settle-
ment all involve money, the In-
formants said, although they did
not specify the exact issues other
than to say tTiat the NFTW’s de-
mands for a $12 weekly increase
was among them.
"We made progress but have not
I yet reached agreement,” said O. S.
Dring, chief negotiator for the long
lines department of the American
Telephone and Telegraph com-
pany. "I can't say how long the
strike will go on because that
would be prophesying.”
John J. Moran, president of the
American Union of Telephone
Workers, representing long-lines
workers, said the strike was "bound
to last at least one more day as
far as I know."
Walkout Is Nationwide
The current government spon-
sored conference Involved only one
phase of the strike—the wage dis-
pute on the long-lines affiliates of
the National Federation of Tele-
phone '.Workers. Government con-
ciliators hoped a settement for the
20,000 long-lines workers would
provide a formula for settlement
with the unions representing the
rest of the 300,000 strikers across
Meanwhile, as the coast to coast

ated with the NFTVV continued in

nation was reduced to 20 percent
