WASHINGTON, Feb. 18 —(l).R>_
Government officials today recessed
coal contract talks for the'week-end
and voiced belief that “a good

to work Monday.
Reports from the soft coal fields
suggested, however, that there is
little sentiment among the rank
and file for a back-to-work move-

By Monday, the nation’s coal
stockpiles will have dropped to a
five-day supply—an all-time low.
David L. Cole, chairman of Presi-
dent Truman's fact-finding board
reported to the chief executive that
"we are encouraged to believe" that
enough miners will go back to "al-
lay fear of a coal crisis.” Then he
called a recess until 2 p. m. Monday
in contract talks between John L.
Lewis and the operators, saying he
felt the recess "might be helpful.”
Cole said the recess—called after
a two-hour bargaining session to-
day—did not alter his earlier hope
that "a good many miners are going
Federal Court Defied
The White House said there is
no likelihood of presidential action
in the coal dispute over the week-
end. Drastic action may be neces-
sary if the 372.000 striking miners
continue to defy the federal court
and Lewis, who late yesterday is-
sued a second back-to-work order.
Cole, who conferred privately
with Lewis last night, said the
United Mine Workers president had
given him "no assurance" that the
miners definitely will return. He
quoted Lewis as saying he liad sent
his second order to the 2,000 UMW

Makes Two Runs
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18 —(A>)_
Thc government s multi-billion dol-
lar farm price support program is
being put on a hot spot by trouble-
The Irish potato—which has cost i
Uncle Sam upward of *500.000.000 in
five years of price supports—has
done much to focus public attention
on the vast program.
Farm leaders are fearful that the
highly publicized dumping of spuds
and efforts to give away dried eggs
and milk will result In consumer
and taxpayer demands that the
whole support program be trimmed
sharply, if not abandoned.
These leaders say that without an
adequate support program farmers
would suffer a depression which
would engulf the nation. Neverthe-
less, farm spokesmen agree that the
potato surplus spectacle Is one the
| Public will not long tolerate.
It takes tax dollars to buy up
and dump uuncedcd surpluses. In
doing this, it holds consumer prices
higher than their natural levels.
Thc big thing that worries farm
leaders in and out of the govern-
ment is the very strong possibility
that there will be additional surplus
developments that will stir up over-
whelming public resentment against
thc farm program.
All in all. the government may
have more than $6,000,000,000 tied
up In surpluses a year from now. I

On Tax Increase
OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 18—<u.PJ
—Pension leader Ora J. Fox today
filed a petition to raise the old
assistance by increasing the sales
tax. and the state chamber of com-
merce promptly protested.
The chamber filed its official pro-
test within an hour after Fox led
a score of his aged followers into
the secretary of state’s office with
a boxful of 95,700 signatures.
Tliree attorneys said they would
start immediately to prove some
38.000 of the signatures Invalid.
The petition asks that the sales
tax be increased from 2 to 3 per-
cent and that 98 percent of the
revenue go to the welfare fund for
pensions, aid to blind persons and
aid to dependent children. The pre-
sent law sends 97 percent to the
welfare fund, the remainer going
to the tax commission for collec-
To Check Signatures
Fold C. Harper, general manager
of the state chamber of commerce,
said each signature on Fox's peti-
tion "should be checked to ascer-
tain if they are legally qualified
He pointed out that two years
ago a similar proposal failed for
lack of signatures.
“We believe it failed because thc
citizens recognized that a 3 percent
sales tax would place a handicap
on Oklahoma business and would
place a cost on the consumer out
of line with adjacent states." he
The protest petition, similar to
others filed in the past, alleges that
many of the signatures are in-
valid. that there are duplicates,
and that some of the petitions are
improperly notarized and that for
other reasons the number of sig-
natures is Insufficient.
Protest Period Specified
To gain a spot on the election
ballot, the petitioners must have
57,722 valid signatures, or 8 per-
cent of the persons who voted for
presidential electors In 1948
Secretary of State Wilburn Cart-
wright said the protest period will
end March 6 and he will call a
hearing on all protests filed within
five days of that time. Fox hopes
to have a favorable supreme court
ruling on the petition in time for
thc question to be submitted at
thc general election in November.
