After Meeting with Harvard Admin on ‘Swatting’ Attack, Black Student Leaders Say Demands Remain Unanswered
John T. Dunlop, associate professor of Economics, flew to Washington yesterday to take a post on the three-man fact-finding board set up by President Truman to study the nationwide coal strike.
Dunlop's appointment and those of David L. Cole '21 of Paterson, New Jersey, and W. Willard Wirtz, professor at Northwestern University and a Harvard Law School graduate, were announced midday yesterday. Cole will head the group.
The fact-finding board is the first step in Taft-Hartley Law procedure in times of "national emergency." After the probers make their report, the government can ask for an 80-day injunction against a strike while negotiations are carried on.
Old Hand at Arbitration
Dunlop, who has been teaching at the University since 1938, is well known for his work in the field of arbitration. He served during the war with the War Mobilization and War Labor Boards.
At present he is Chairman of the National Joint Board for the Settlement of Jurisdictional Disputes in the Building and Construction Industry and a consultant to the National Labor Relations Board and the Atomic Energy Commission labor panel.
