Britain Secretly Enters Grain Pact With Russia; Economic Chiefs Meet Dwindling Dollar eserves Result 'Barter' Deal LONDON, July 8. (API — Dollar-short Britain has secretly agreed to buy nearly 1,000,000 tons of coarse grains from Russia in the next year, official sources disclosed today. The Informants added that p.irt of a barter deal agreement was in- itialled in private in Moscow week—a few days before Britain's economic planners announced a three-month standstill on dollar •pending. Talks for a one-year-Russiaii trade pact have been going on for some tjme. The grain deal would form part of that year-long pact. . Negotiations for a longer temi British-Soviet trade agreement are expected lo follow. Russia Is to supply a .big quantity of wheat over fl.-id above <V-T- roarsc sraius-^oats, bariey and corn, the informants »«id. They declined to &ay how much. '• Britain and ArgentiilA" J sigiied a five-year trade agreement in Buenos Aires un June 27. That pact was entereJ into despite United States objections that such two-nation agreements violate the spirit of free (Competitive International trade. The Buenos Aires accord provides that Britain will spend a minimum of £123,000,000 ($519,000,000) annually for Argentine products and Argentina a minimum of £121.535,002 I$1S«,140,000) for British products. American officials have expressed the fear that the British-Argentine agreement may keep United States oil and farm machinery off the Argentine market. Pact Important lo Britain Board of Trade spokesmen made no comment on the British-Soviet trade negotiations. They said there is a complete shutdown on information about the negotiations at least until talks going on in London now for the- full year-long trade pact end. The grain deal was reached in Moscow by two Ministry of Food officials. The Briton who initialed the grain deal is P. Pinnock. The arrangement is of great importance to Britain. This country buys much of its food from countries like tile United statcs-and Canada tor dollars. But Britain's dollar resources are running out and she is seeking to build up alternative sources of supply in the non-dollar "ood producing regions of the world. Russia and other Eastern Europ- an countries do not demand dollar payment. They desperately need machinery and capital equipment— things Britain can not easily sell for dollars. Britain therefore hopes to conclude a big-scale barter agreement with Russia which Is expected to exceed S400.000.000 in value bom | ways over the next 12-month period. Apart from the wheat, oats, barley and corn Russia wants to send Britain timber, some potash ana I canned fish. In return. Britain will supply machinery, ships, rubber and wool.

(AP)—A deeply-concerned federal government moved today to prevent a threatened nationwide steel strike. The government's growing anxiety became apparent last night when Cyrus s. Clilng, director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service,, summoned Philip Murray, president of the United Steel Workers, and' John A. Stephens, vice president of the U.S. Steel Corp., to meet in Washington on Monday. Both Murray and Stephens promptly agreed to answer the call. Murray also repeated his charge that (lie slcel corporation was re- s|x»lslble for the Impasse in negotiations that for the last two days had made a steel strike a strong possibility on July 16. The U.S. Steel-USW negotiations —in recent years a major factor In the wage agreements reached by other industries—bogged down last Wednesday. Benjamin F. Fntrless, U.S. Steel president, rejected the stfelwork- ers demands for a fourth round post-wnr wage boost. Previously he turned down the union's demands for pensions for its 800.000 'members. Murray quickly called a meeting of his policy commitee here next Tuesday. Tills committee has the power to call a steel strike. To Consider Oaths The USW leader said that Ills past refusal to sign a non-Communist affidavit would be brought up for consideration at the committee meeting. Should he and other USW officials sign such affidavits, the steelworkers union could make use of the National Labor Relations Board machinery in charging U.S. Steel with ail unfair labor practice In refusing lo bargain on Blytheville fireman's Pension Fund Receives $4,330 in State Money LITTLE ROCK, July t.

On this issue had with him Senator Tnft (R-Ohlo) who has been the nd- mhilstratlon's arch-foe on some other measures, particularly labor egislatlon. Taft got a similar housing bill through the Senate In he Republican 80th Congress but .he House refused to pass It.

But It still calls for construction of 810,000 publicly-owned dwellings In six years, with annual federal rent subsidies running up to $308.000,000 a year for the low-Income, families, who will occupy them. , Mr. Truman asked for construction of 1.050,000 units—through local housing authorities—in seven years, \villi the rent subsidies up to s400.000.000 annually. But, In the face of opposition cries that the program Is "socialism" and would endanger the financial stability of tile government, Congress reduced the program.
