Senators Okay Arms Program Moves to Reduce Overseas Aid Fail; House Acted Earlier Contract Talks Are Under Way In Steel Dispute Cool Strike Enters Fifth Day With No Hope of Early End By the Associated Preu Contract talks that may settle the threatened steel strike were returned today. But the coal strike, entering lu 'iflh day .seemed likely to continue ome time—possibly a long time. The u. s. steel Corporation and the CIO United Steelworkers resuming negotlallons, have one week before an Oct. 1 strike deadline They are at odds over pension •<ud Insurance demands by the un- on. The million-member steel union compiled Thursday with President Truman's request for extension of Ihe steel strike truce—previously set to end Sunday at midnight. The steel industry agreed Wednesday to the extension, and also "greed to resume bargaining. The union, arranging [he u. S. Steel lalks. told 520 other steel companies Thursday that It is ready to negotiate. A fact finding board named by Mr. Truman has vetoed a fourth round wage Increase for steelworkers. But it recommended a company-paid pension and insurance program equal to 10 cents hourly per worker .The union accepted the report, but o. s. steel balked at accepting without further bargaining Prospects for settling the coal strike seemed more bleak in the wake of John L. Lewis' statement Thursday that his 480,000 United Mine Workers, who had been on a. three day week, now are on a "no day week." By Don M'hitehe WASHINGTON, , ^.^v ^j, (APr — The administration chalked up an important victory in foreign policy today on the strength of the Senate's 55 to 24 approval of an overseas arms program. The Senate reached its decision late yesterday to rearm friendly nations after beating down two moves to make a »200.000,000 cut in the $1,314,010.000 arras bill. The measure came through the senate .with only ,two minor changW.' This was in Par$;a. personal triumph' for Senator Corinally (b-Ttex) and Senator Vandenberg <R-Mich), the two party leaders In foreign affairs who led the fight for the aid program. Nineteen Republicans joined. 3C Democrats In voting for passage. Ten Democrats and 14 Republicans voted against It. Connally told reporters: "As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, I am highly gratified at passage of the program and delighted over the defeat of the crippling and enfeebling amendments." In (he debate, Senator Taft (R- Ohio) contended that the program contemplates Brining every nation in Ihe world that might be opposed to Russia., This, he said, "is likely to incite Russia to war." But Vandenberg argued that the goal is "stopping aggression before it reaches us." The Senate's vote pledged Congress to a foreign arms program since the House already has approved a similar militry id bill. The mount of money to be authorised remains ni doubt. The hoii^e voted $599,505,000 to carry out the arms plan—which la $444,505,000 less than the Senate figure. Senate and House members will work out their differences in conference.
