To Settle Strike
HONOLULU, Sept. 15 VP)
Hawaii's governor needled a new
peace proposal into the islands'
tangled 138-day CIO dock strike
today. His formula: boost wages
14 cents an hour, resume work,
set up a new contract.
Gov. Ingram M. Stainback first
put the proposal to the striking
Warehousemen's union. Then he
laid It out for Hawaii's seven
struck stevedoring firms. Both
sides said they will consider It.
A basic wage of $1.54 an hour
was the governor's suggestion.
This is the same pay recommend
ed by his fact finding board in
June. The employers accepted It
then. The union refected it.
The ILWLI's 2.000 stevedores
struck May 1. They wanted to
hike their $1.40 an hour to $1.72.
Their figure has been scaled
down since, but never on terms
the employers would accept.
Now the governor urges: Take
14 cents. Make the docks hum
again as quickly as possible.
Then lit down at a bargaining
table with the employers right
away. There negotiate a new
two-year cdntract and make It
effective next April 1.

for closed shop conditions in vio

The strike against the dailies
was believed one of the longest
against a group of Metropolitan
city newspapers. But the struck
newspapers the Tribune, the
Dally Sun-Times, Dally News,
Herald-American and Journal of
Commerce have not missed a
day's publication since the strike
started Nov. 24. 1947.
The strike of the composing
room workers brought a new
look to Chicago's dailies. A new
technique of newspaper print
ing was started. The printed
pages were prepared by typing
stories with typewriters, pasting
them In place on large dummy
sheets, fitting cut-out headlines
over them, and photographing
the finished page for reproduc
tion by electroplating.

"The suit," McGrath said in a
statement, "is designed to elimi

The complaint alleges that the
big chain has used Its power and
position to "impose unreasonable
restraints of trade upon competi
tors at all levels of the food In
dustry from farm to table."
It asserts this was done by ob
taining discriminatory price
preferences over retail competi
tors "by exercising a dual threat
permanently to withhold its
patronage (from suppliers) or to
manufacture for Itself."
