 Somersat, O., March 1--Coal Trucks Line Up At Tipple-- These empty coal trucks, some of 225, line both sides of Route 22 as they wait their turn to be loaded with coal from the Mt. Perry Mine in the background. Many of the drivers have been there since Sunday. The mine is operating under an interim agreement with the United Mine Workers whereby the operators agree to pay the existing scale and any additional pay decided by the operators and the union. The mine operates three six-hour shifts a day and loads an average of 60 trucks a day. (AP Wirephoto)
