    NEW YORK (UPI)--A MEDIATION COMMITTEE HEADED BY VETERAN LABOUR MEDIATOR THEODORE KHEEL PASSED MONDAY FOR A SETTLEMENT OF CONTRACT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE NEW YORK POST AND THE NEWSPAPER GUILD OF NEW YORK IN GRADER TO AVERT A STRIKE SET FOR 6 A.M. TUESDAY.

    KHEEL, VINCENT D. MCDONNELL, CHAIRMAN OF THE STATE MEDIATION BOARD, AND FRANK H.

    BROWN, REGIONAL DIRECTOR FOR THE FEDERAL MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION SERVICE, RE-ENTERED THE NEGOTIATIONS AT THE REQUEST OF FEDERAL MEDIATION COMMISSIONER ABRAHAM A. DESSER. DESSER HAD BEEN HANDLING THE NEGOTIATIONS SINCE LAST TUESDAY.

    THE GUILD, WHICH REPRESENTS EDITORIAL, ADVERTISING AND CLERICAL EMPLOYEES AT THE POST, CLAIMS THE NEWSPAPER HAD NOT MET 11 DIFFERENT CONTRACT DEMANDS MADE BY THE UNION. HOWEVER, POST SPOKESMAN SIDNEY ORENSTEIN, SAID CONCESSIONS WERE MADE ON SEVERAL POINTS AND IT WAS REGRETTABLE THAT THE GUILD SAW FIT TO SET A STRIKE DATE.

    "I THINK IT IS WORTH NOTING THAT THE NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE OTHER NINE UNIONS IN THE CITY'S NEWSPAPER INDUSTRY, AS WELL AS THE BARGAINING SESSIONS BETWEEN THE NEWSPAPER GUILD AND OTHER MANHATTAN PAPERS, ARE ALL PROCEEDING WITHOUT STRIKE DEADLINES".

    THE CONTRACTS OF NINE CRAFT UNIONS AND THE GUILD WITH THE POST, NEW YORK TIMES, DAILY NEWS AND LONG ISLAND PRESS EXPIRED MARCH 30 BUT NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN THE UNIONS AND THE NEWSPAPER PUBLISHER'S ASSOCIATION OF NEW YORK HAVE CONTINUED ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS. THE ASSOCIATION'S NEGOTIATORS MET MONDAY AFTERNOON WITH REPRESENTATIVES OF THE PRESSMEN'S UNION.

    THE POST, A TABLOID WITH A DAILY CIRCULATION OF 698,137 IS THE CITY'S OLDEST NEWSPAPER--FOUNDED IN 1801 BY ALEXANDER HAMILTON. MRS. DOROTHY SCHIFF, HEIRESS TO AN INVESTMENT BANKING FORTUNE, IS EDITOR-IN-CHARGE AND PUBLISHER.

    IT WAS LAST STRUCK IN 1966.
