Says Steel Strike Not to Be Delayed Murray Firm, But Federal Mediators Hope for Compromise By UNITED PRESS A crucial • week of labor negotiations opened Monday in the steel and auto industries but John L. Lewis apparently was wasting for a steel settlement before sending his 480,000 miners back into the pits. CIO President Philip Murray warned that he would not postpone a strike by his steelworkers after the Saturday deadline. Federal mediators sitting in on the talks with 53 steel firms were hopeful, however, that a compromise agreement could be reached in time to head off the strike. To Stick to Demand But Murray insisted that the union would stick by its demand that the companies accept a presidential fact-finding board's recommendation for a pension and insurance program paid for by the industry. Meanwhile, 83,500 CIO United Auto Workers voted to strike against Chrysler, if necessary, to back demands for a company-financed retirement and health program. The demands on Chrysler were almost identical with those made against Ford Motors by its 115,000 UAW employes. Authorize Strike The Ford workers have authorized a strike for Thursday but union officials have indicated it will not be called unless current negotiations collapse. The Ford- UAW negotiators were reported as almost ready to take up the vital subject of pensions after clearing up non-economic issues. Negotiations to settle the coal strike were at a complete standstill. They were broken off until Thursday and it appeared that Lewis was taking his time in hopes that a steel settlement would be reached quickly so that he could use it as a lever in his own squabble with mine owners. The CIO Rubber Workers Union announced that it would call off its strike against B. F. Goodrich Rubber Co. and withdraw demands for a 25 cent hourly pay hike if the company "makes satisfactory pension and contract agreements."

Hudson of Pocahontas has ruled. Dr. Walter P. Halbert, executive secretary of the Iowa Baptist convention, said in Des Moines Monday that Judge (Hudson issued the ruling last Friday. The ruling held'that the.Rev. Robert Kittrell, pastor of the Algona church, and the majority members of -the church cannot change their affiliation from the Iowa Baptist convention and the Northern Baptist convention. The affiliation is of many years standing. Judge Hudson specifically held that the Aigona church cannot affiliate or attempt to affiliate with the conservative Baptist Fellow- hip, the Conservative Baptist As- ociation of America or the Con- GOP Plons 1 Grass Roots '50 Campaign The republican party is planning a grass roots campaign for votes in 1950 and Guy G. Gabrielson, national GOP chairman, made it plain during his visit to North Iowa Sunday that the campaign already has started. A 'big, pleasant spoken, hearty man with an amazing memory for names,, he impressed both new and old acquaintances at a Hotel Hanford reception Sunday evening with a genuine liking for people. Monday he was in Chicago for a meeting with party workers from Illinois and he made no secret during an interview Sunday eve- •ning what he would be preaching from now on. Lack of Votes "We ' lost the 1948 election for lack of votes," he said, grinning broadly. . "What we're trying to •do now is to get votes and we're making the effort at the precinct 'level." : ' . The success of that effort already has been proved in a congressional campaign in. Pennsylvania, Gabrielson pointed out. The congressional district involved included 2 agricultural counties 'and one industrial, wjth Johnstown as its county seat. - Concentrating its efforts on the Johnstown community, the republican party swung the district from a 12,000 vote loss in 1948 : to a 10^000 vote victory in 1949, the ' national chairman reported. Cambria county showed a gain of approximately 14,000 republican votes in the one year, he added, from a 16,000 vote loss to a 1,900 vote .loss. Republican Effort , That is the type of work which the republicans, will try to do throughout the nation in connection with the 1950 congressional elections, Gabrielson promised. The Sioux City agricultural meeting was called to seek information on which to base republican proposals for a permanent farm program, he said in answer to a question. All discus- .sions, both by farm organization leaders and by'individuals, were taken on a stenotype machine. The transcription will be sifted by an information staff and the results submitted to members of congress, he explained. "Farming is our biggest industry," Gabrielson pointed put, in •xplairiing the importance of the gioux City meeting. "Ovr farms employ 12. million people, even Foreign Policy Fight Shapes Up Among Congress Hopefuls Washington, (AP)—A republican-democratic battle over foreign policy seemed to be developing -Monday in preliminary skirmishes of the 1950 congressional campaign. Politicians said they will be surprised if it warms into the isolationist-internatonalist argument of yesteryear. In- more than the automotive industry or any other. Besides, food is the most important of all products; it is the one thing which is indispensable to America." Sioux Rapids Native Gabrielson was born at Sioux Rapids and was ^graduated from high school there'before going on to the University of Iowa. He was graduated from the university in 1914 and then went on to Harvard law school from which he was graduated in 1917. "Then I was graduated into the army like everybody else," he said with a smile. After World war 1 he began the practice of law in New York City where he still maintains his office. His home is in Bernardsville, N. J. Mr. 'and Mrs. Gabrielson visited Sunday at the F. P. Walker home in Clear Lake and with his brother, Rush Gabrielson, Crystal Lake. Mrs. Guy Gabrielson and Mrs. Walker are sisters. *stead, they look for a quarrel over the methods and strategy of keeping world peace. Two republican candidates in next year's senate races—Senator Taft of Ohio, and former Rep. Dirksen of Illinois—already are beating the bushes in criticism of administration foreign policies. Taft told a reporter some of his critics, are accusing him unjustly of being an isolationist because he voted against the North Atlantic pact and the administration's $1,314,000,000 foreign arms $1,300 in Fines Levied in Slot Machine Case Charles City, (/P)—Fines totaling $l,30fr were levied Monday against' 4 Charles City men who pleaded guilty in district court to charges of illegal possession of gambling devices. District Judge Tom Boynton fined Gordon E. Churchill of the Castle club $400. The other 3, Welsey Hobert of Robert's, John Kielty of the Columbus club and Stanley Hannum of the American Legion club, were each fined $300. The chargqs were made following raids made Sept. 14 and 15. Seven slot machines were seized at the Castle club, 3 at Roberts and 2 each at the Columbus and American Legion clubs. program. Taft said he balked at the arms program because he thinks it may provoke Russia to war much sooner than the Soviets otherwise might go. He said he voted against the pact only because he felt that it involved an arms commitment. As evidence that he dosen't want this country to crawl into a shell, he cited his proposal that the United States extend the Monroe Doctrine to Europe and that it promise flatly to fight any time the Russians attack western Europe. Dirksen, known as an advocate of international to-operation when he was a member of the house, has teed off on the Marshall plan. He voted for it, when he was in the house. Now he says that the U. S. deficit is such that to be sending funds abroad for European economic recovery is "like the blind leading the blind." Democrats haven't settler! on Taft's opponent. Senator Lucas of Illinois, the democratic leader, probably will run again for the job Dirksen wants. Lucas is one of the staunchest senate supporters of the administration's foreign policies. Blackmer in Guilty Plea in Tax Case Denver, (U.R)—Millionaire Henry M. Blackmer, 80, pleaded guilty to one count of income tax evasion Monday and the government moved immediately for dismissal of 2 perjury charges against him. Judge Orie L. Phillips ordered Blackmer released under $5,000 bond pending" a "thorough and complete" investigation of the case. He ordered the'U. S. attorney's office to turn over to him its complete files on Blackmer, including a letter from the U. S. attorney general's office agreeing to dismissal of the perjury charges if Blackmer would plead to the income tax evasion charges. Blackmer fled the country in 1924 and became a man without a country to escape appearing as a witness in the notorious Teapot Dome scandal of the Harding administration. In setting bond, Phillips ruled that Blackmer need not stay in Colorado but must be available to appear before the court on short notice. The stipulation was made after Blackmer reported that he had a heart condition which made it inadvisable for him to remain in high-altitude Denver for more than 24 hours. Blackmer said he had been warned of the condition when he was examined at a Boston clinic last week after an overseas flight from Paris which ended his 25- j-ear self-decreed exile to avoid prosecution on the federal charges.

Ask Gillette for Reversal on Switzer Des Moines, (U.R)—The democratic state central committee has asked Senator Guy Gillette to reverse his stand against the nomination of Carroll Switzer of Des Moines for'a federal district judgeship in southern Iowa, it was learned Monday. The decision to ask Gillette to support Switzer's nomination— which he has strongly opposed— was • macte- Saturday when the state central committee, democratic state legislators and county chairmen and vice chairmen met here. It was the first action to approve Switzer by the entire central committee. The former Polk county attorney previously had been approved by party leaders, not including Gillette. Gillette termed Switzer's nomination to succeed Federal Judge Charles Dewey a "direct affront' because, he said, he had not been consulted and his own suggestions had been passed over. Gillette had asked the presiden to nominate Will Riley, Des Moines, or Ed Halbach, Clinton. One hundred and twenty men accompanied Columbus 'when. he discovered America. ervative Baptist Association of owa. "The beliefs, doctrines;and prac- ices" of the Aigona church were dopted by its congregation when t was organized, the judge's opin- on said. "A majority faction cannot di- ert a church from the purpose for which it was established," he stated. "Each member of a church has a right to insist that the church property shall be devoted to the religious faith for which it was acquired." On May 8, 1848, following a dispute between 2 groups in the church, a majority of the Aigona congregation voted • to amend the church's articles of incorporation and disaffiliate with the'Northern and Iowa Baptist conventiohsv-jThe minority group immediately filed a court action to stop the move.

Tells of Threats Referring to Vishinsky's appeals for peace in the assembly last week, Mardelj said: "One cannot possess peace-loving intentions while hurling upon Yugoslavia the threats the government of the U. S. S. R. ig showering upon her." While attacking Russia, Kar- delj made it clear he would riot go along with China's protest last week against Russia's alleged connection .with Chinese communists.

William S. Beardsley said Monday he is confident that a new press policy established by,the state tax commission will operate '.[without detriment .to the press or public." The commission last week sent written rules to its various departments. Editorials in many Iowa newspapers have criticized the rules :on the ground they create a form of censorship. Under the rules any newsman must submit to the commission a written request for information. The request then will be given to the head of the department involved. The department head will submit in writing to the commission the answers to questions. Then it is up to the commission to decide whether any or all of the information shall be made available to .the press. f . Asked for his comment on the matter at his news conference, the governor replied: "The tax commission or any public agency should have an established and fair press policy. "This is important because the very nature of the work is of public interest and importance. "I am confident that the policy adopted by the state tax commission was not adopted with the intent to suppress or censor news. "I am confident that the commission will see that their policy operates without detriment to the press or the public."
