Solution of Ford Fight Might Act'as a Pattern for Others The aoidance of a strike in the plants of the Ford Motor Company is an achievement for which botli management and union leaders deserve the nation's . thank*. The final settlement of the contract Dispute came after 35,hours of continuous bargaining—and two hours after a strike deadline had been passed. Negotiations were marked by a strong determination on both sides to reach'an agreement. It was an example that bargainers in other major indusli'ies would be wise to copy. In the last stages, the dispute revolved around a pension plan. J n this respect it closely parallels the current controversies in steel and coal, since the Ford contract terms are patterned directly after the recommendations of President Truman's fact-finding board in the steel case. The United Automobile Workers (CIO) agreed to a company proposal to establish a pension fund that would allow Ford workers to retire at 65 with a total allotment of ?t.OO a month, including regular social security benefits. To finance the plan the company would contribute 8-3/4 cents an hour for each worker. Inasmuch as Ford already lias set up a social insurance'program catling for company contribution of li/ A cents an hour, the total now agreed u,,,;,, eouals exactly tlte 10-cent "package" urged by the fact-finders in the steel dispute. The.Ford settlement calls for no contributions whatsoever by the workers themselves. ^ is this last principle—non-contributory pensions—that | las 80 j onif sl mied the steel negotiations. The steel companies believe no pension program is sound that does not call fur some worJc er contribution. The union says atich a contribution would amount, to a WB ce ' reduction. " There can be little doubt that the J'ord agreement wilJ set a pattern to- the rest of the motor industry. The is sues are similar in the union's bargain '"« with the Chrysler Coloration where strike action has been approved but no walkout deadline fixed. If the Ford settlement does indeed show the way to a satisfactory solution for others, every American must desire I hat agreements be reached all down the hue m the same spirit of reasonableness and determination which characterized the negotiators in that case. Nothing would be more certain to upset resurginj, business i,, America than a WAve of stl . ikeg S()me ^ i-eady upon ,,s.

He ai- tended Harrow, one of the coun try's famous "public" schools frealJv private) and at the University of Cambridge. Later he studied law in London and returned to his native land as a ilishcd Intellectual who had the marks of genius. At the outset he showed little Interest In the independence niove- menl. but soon he Joined and thereafter devo'ed his whole ' life to the ideal. He became one of the most devoted disciples of Mohandas K. Gandhi and followed the saintly little Mahalma faithfully in the drive for Indian Independence until the latter's assassination on January 30. 1348. The disciple, like the master, became a plague to the British and lie was several times In prison, serving all-told some 13 years. Like Gandhi, Nehru toured the highways and byways of India to preach Independence to the people until he became an object of hero worship nuiong the masses. Natural Sur essor In Gandhi So It was natural that Gandhi should '">ve designated Nehru as his "political heir" and - that th« disciple should become the firiZ. prime minister of the Dominion or India when Britain granted Independence. Unhappily the division of the vast subcontinent into two dominions—Hindu India ap-> Moslem Pakistan—resulted In bloody communal strife. Nehru Is an internationalist and socialist and Is - bitter, opponent of dictatorship. He is. however, what, might be described as a mid- dlc-of-lhe-road Socialist. He believes In what he calls-n '"mixed economy" in which lhe state as- ii'rncs management ,of key Industries but still allows plenty of chance, for private enterprise to operate. . . , ' " The prime" minister hadn't' long om :he football game and to intolerable situation of junior of- 50n .'

A foreign office spokesman said yesterday a reply to the Russian charges—which had been made to the United States and France as well—was handed to a Russian diplomatic representative here. • Britain is expected to reject similar complaints by the Hungarian.
