Operators and Miners Silent.

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 13 (AP).—John L. Lewis, President of the United Mine Workers, and Major W. W. Inglis, Chairman of the anthracite operators' Negotiating Committee, expressed interest tonight in Governor Pinchot's call for a special session of the Legislature, which, among other things, is to take up the hard coal strike. Both, however, withheld comment on the Governor's action.

Major Inglis said the operators' General Committee had been called to consider the proposed legislation and that the mine owners probably would issue a statement after the meeting.

Mr. Lewis did not indicate whether the miners would have a statement on the subject later. He said there was no change in the strike situation tonight and that he did not expect any in the immediate future.
