But now—when the occasion requires it—he can pound the table, tell belly-shaking jokes, or sit puffing in clouds of smoke for hours at n time while others shriek at each other. When they tire, he usually has an idea. Murray went even further ami agreed to the board's terms — which called for a postwar wage increase of J2',i cents an hour.

Most unions were waiting to see how Murray came out of his tussle with the pace-setting steel industry. Murray and the steel workers' policy committee, expressing "utmost regret" that the board refused to recommend B wage boost, said they would settle ror the 5100 monthly pension system and liberalized social insurance program proposed by The panel. ; Other Issues Vending That left it up to the steel companies, and gave (be union a head- start in winning public acclaim for averting a strike that could throw the national economy out of gear. Ching was well-aware of the size of the stakes as he played for time and peace in steel. Just around the corner are almost equally vital wage-pension struggles in tile auto and coal mining industries. John L. Lewis and his United Mine Workers resume talks with the bituminous coal operators this week in Bluefield and While Sulphur Springs. W. Va.
