Ill Wj-Presldenl Truman (oday asked the steel Industry and CIO Sleelworkcrs Union for * 10-day extension of Ihe industry's strike fruce. WASHINGTON. Sept. 10. W'(-Preside,it Truman's three-man fact- finding board today filed its recommendations for settling the crucial steel dispute with Mr. Truman. t Contents of the board's report were kept secret but the White House promised to make them available for publication at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern standard Time), today. The President had expressed hope in advance that the findings would become the basis for an agreement to head off an Industry-crippling steel workers' strike due next week The report had added importance because Industry and labor alike look for any steel settlement to bccomo a guide in other industries facing lights over a fourth round of postwar wage Increases. The recommendations were kept secret. However, reports circulated among the. parlies in advance Hint they called for no wage increase but approximately 10 cents an hour for each worker in pension and insurance benefits. The CIO steclworkers union had isked a 30-cent increase including 12.5 cents In added wages an hour, 11.23 for pensions, and 027 for Insurance.

Under Union Demands Thus a recommendation for a 10- cent settlement would be a third of what the union asked. The steel Industry lias been flatly opposed to granting any general wage increase or pension plan now. Denial of a general pay boost would likely become a heavy hurdle toward high wages In other industries. Whatever the hoard recommends is not binding on either the steel ndustry or the union. Either side ;an accept or reject—according to .crms of the CO-dny truce President I'nnnan arranged last July to avert a strike and let the board sift claims on both sides. Members of the board declined to comment in advance on the reports t would recommend an approximate 10-cent hourly improvement lor workers In pension and Insurance benefit.';. The members arc Prof. Carroll a Daugherty. former New York State Judge Samuel I. Roscmnan. and Javld L. Cole. Paterson, N. J at- orncy. President Truman has Indicated ic may ask an extension of the ruce to give the steel companies and he union time for bargaining on .he board's recommendations.
