(UP)— Tlie government hearted toward n swift new showdown with .Montgomery Ward & Co., today with federal seizure of some other form of drastic action in prospect for Ward properties in six slates. The War Labor Board cleared the way for the showdown when it Rave the firm until Monday to comply with WLB directives on wages and union security at four Detroit stores —where strikes already are in progress—under the threat of possible "sanctions or government seizure." The WLB order cume after the company failed to appear at a hearing yesterday to show cause why il had not complied with the directives, which involved virtually three same issues that led to seizure of Ward's big- Chicago properties last April. The company also refused to attend board hearings today on its non-compliance in plants In San Rafael, St. Paul, Minn., Chicago (printing and display factory), Denver, Colo., and Jama lea, N. Y. The board was expected to follow the pattern in the Detroit case and order the company to comply with its directives within five days or face drastic action against those properties as well. The United Retail, Wholesale and Department Store lOmployes (C. T. O.). which represents the 2200 Ward workers in Detroit, said the strike and picket lines would continue there until Monday. Samuel Wolchok, union president, told the WLB that Ward workers in other cities would like to join the strike and that he feared the Detroit walkout might spread.
