MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1949 BLYTHEVTLLZ (ARK.) COURIER NXW8 PAGE FIVE •THi.NATION TODAY— President Still Holds the Power, If He Chooses, to Invoke T-H Act And Delay Steel Strike 80 Days By June* Marlow WASHINGTON, Oct. 3, (AP)—You may be wondering why is there a steel strike? I thought the Taft-Hartley act jvas supposed to stop big strikes? First, T-H can't stop any strike but can only delay e. Second, President Truman hasn't used T-H in the stee one. case but still can if he wishes to. The strike, which started Cfct. 1,+ already was delayed 78 days by' presidential action. If Mr. Truman wants to use T-H now, he caii stop it for another 80 days. This is an explanation of what has been done and can be done. The CIO steelworkers were s«p- PJ»d lo strike at midnight, July ijlfon (hat day Mr. Truman appointed a three-man fact-finding board to look into the case, hear Programs to Tell About Industry in South Are Urged MEMPHIS. Oct. 3. f/Pi—The Mid- South Public Relations Institute opened a conference heve today with a call for carefully planned programs to tell the world about Southern industry. J.. Handly Wright of St. Louis, chairman of the board of the Public relations Society of America, said that industry's southward swing brings with it the need for developing favorable public attitudes. "In the South, as elsewhere." lie said In a prepared address, "we must realize thai the measure of our success or failure Is dependent largely on what the various publics think of_us and our products." The two-day meeting h'- drawn some 100 leaders In public relations both sides, arid recommend a solution. So, until Hit board could finish its work, Ihe steelvrarkers and the steel owners agreed there'd be no shutdown or strike. The board reported back to the President Sept. 10. : A couple of times between Sept. 10 and Oct. 1 a strike seemed near but was delayed upon the president's request. When It finallj \ started Oct. 1, 78 days had elapset ; { since Mr,. Truman Appointed his } fact-finding board July 15. | Hovr T-H Ml-'-t Have Been Used || This 73-delay was voluntary on j ^ O m Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkan- both sides, the union and the steel i 5as an ^ Alabama. It's sponsored by companies. There was no law com- le University of Mississippi, pelling them to agree to the President's request for delay. If he had used T-H. Mr. Truman could have delayed the strike by law. This is how T-H would have worked in this case: First, Mr, Truman would have had to decide a steel strike was a national , emergency, endangering the nation's health and safety. Then he'd appoint a board of fact-finders to study the dispute. Then it reports to the President on the facts.. ' (There's a difference between the T-H type of fact-finding board and the one used in the present E «teel case. T-H boards can't make B •Commendations.

After receiving the T-H board's report, the President can tell attorney general to get a U.S. court injunction (order) forbidding stiike for 80 days. Procedure Outlined The first 60 of the 80 days are intended to give more time for the union and company to reach i settlement. Meanwhile, the Presi dent calls back his T-H board and asks for R report cm the latest d«' velopments. This report must be made within the first'60 of those 80 days covefed by the no-strike order. The Presi dent makes the report public. If, a the end of 'the fiO days, there' •still no settlement, the Nationa Labor Relations Board steps into the picture. It has 15 days—after the elapse of the first BO—to hold a vote among the union members to see whether they—even though their leaders reject the idea—want to accept « company's lateste offer. That uses up 75 of the 80 days. In the next five days the NLRB must tell the attorney general the result of the vote. Then, with the j 80 day used up, he must go Into court and have the no-strike order jtt that point, after 80 days' delay, a union is free to strike. At'this point the President sends a full report to Congress to take any special action, it wishes, by passing some special act, to delay a strike further. This hasn't happened yet. So. although the steel strike was delayed 78 days without benefit of T-H, Mr. Truman can still use.T-H to stop it for another 80 days of going through the various steps outlined here. hat ended here Saturday with an election of officers. • H.
