WASHINGTON, November 29--Efforts to fine striking miners for every day they remain off the job were disclosed tonight, even as the government won a round from John L. Lewis in its federal court battle to end the strike of 400,000 of Lewis's followers.
In still another move to that end, leaders of the southern coal mine operators were called to meet here Monday to discuss the possibility of direct negotiations with the United Mine Workers.
The head of this segment of the stricken coal industry, Edward R. Burke, told a reporter that "a very considerable number of coal companies" had filed applications with the government to slap individual fines of $1 and $2 a day for every day that a miner stays out. The amount would vary under the contract by regions.
The government's preliminary victory came on a ruling by Federal Judge T.; Alan Goldsborough that the Norris-La Guardia act forbidding anti-strike injunctions does not apply in the case of the Government vs. Lewis.
