Both sides had met for three hours at the office of .Gov. A. B. Chandler in Frankfort. UMW representatives said the union could not be bound by the agreement reached by the two sides at a meeting with Chandler some two weeks ago. Carson Hibbitts, UMW District 30 president, had written Chandler earlier that mine operators wero not living up to terms of the agreement.

Adams attacked when he drove a loaded coal truck to the ramp, officers said. Sheriff Johnny Fulton said he did not know who fired the first shot. Gov. A. B.

Officers took two guns from him. In Letcher County, a petition reportedly was being circulated seeking the removal of Sheriff Johnny Fulton and Circuit Judge Courtney C. Wells on the grounds they had been lax in law enforcement during the strike. The petition was supposed to have been presented to Chandler Wednesday, but his office said it had not been received.
