Some filling stations in the stcel- proriucing area of Gary, Hammond «nd East Chicago, Ind.. reported they were out of gasoline last ni^ht less than 24 hours after the strike began, other stations were expected to run out today. Similar shortages were cropping up in the Midwest.

Pcrlman said. Several judges immediately asked him if he knew, that for & fact Perlman said: "It is based on Information that is pretty accurate." Agreement Implied The implication appears to be that CIO President Philip Murray had given Hie government some assurance he would end the strike if government seizure could continue and the government was free to give his 850,050 steelworkers a pay raise. The Circuit Court acled last night to continue government seizure temporarily.In effect until the Supreme Court says whether it will rule on the question of whether President Truman had authority to take over the mills. Pine Order Stayed The court stayed an order from V S. District Judge David A. Pine thnl the mills must be returned to their owners. Pine had ruled the seizure illegal. Perlman told the appeals court that if the government was to be barred from raising wages "we might just as well have no stay order at all." Actually, the steel strike was on In full force today. Union pickets were about the mills, even though technically they were striking against the government. Muray was making no move to get the men back to work and told reporters In Pittsburgh: "There is nothing I have to say." . President Philip Murray ol both tile bis union and the parent CIO told the Associated Press he will have no comment today on the lat est court ruling and does not expect to have any news to impart " There's nothing I have to say " said the silvery-haired labor leader to a newsman waiting for him at his office door. ••[ have no comment on the ruling. I have no plans for a news conference." It rests 'with Murray, apparently, whether his 650.000 striking unionists remain idle or go back to work as employes of the government ' Strike Is Against u. 5 Yesterday they were on strike Inside 'Today's Courier News • • • Il's time we extended franchise to servicemen . . . editorials . . .

WASHINGTON Wy-Secretary of Commerce Sawyer today called for new peace efforts by the steel industry and the CIO and Urged that Congress prnvirie a clear legal basis for government seizure of the mills. against the steel companies. Today they are striking against Uncle Sam. their employer technically. The appellate court by a 5-4 decision stayed until Friday afternoon the effectiveness of an anti-seizure 'order handed down by Federal District Judge David A. Pine Tuesday. Some well-posted sources said Murray may issue no statement before President Truman's weekly news conference today, it was speculated that Murray may wish to be guided by whatever the President tells reporters. No Comment From Steel There was no comment from the See STEEL on Page Z Impeachment Talk Grows In Capital WASHINGTON UP, _ Impeachment talk grew louder on Capitol Hill today as Congress considered giving Itself power to halt strikes with injunctions. Some Republicans heretofore lukewarm on impeachment proposals said continued refusal by President Truman to invoke the Tart-Hartley Act In the steel dispute might leave Congress no alternative but to Impeach him. As the court battle between the administration and the steel masters seesawed toward the Supreme Court, there were these other dcvlopments: 1. The House Armed Services Committee scheduled hearings starting probably next Tuesday on a new anti-strike bill which could block strikes Indefinitely In emergency periods. 2. A technicality prevented the House Judiciary Committee from going ahead today with a scheduled vote on 10 impeachment and related proopsals. 3. Half a dozen committees busied themselves directly or indirectly with various phases of the steel controversy. • ——^ ___^ • — — ,*-.

A bill was sent to Congress this morning asking approval for re-activation of the field here, Congressman E C. (Took) Gathm BS told a Conner News reporter by telephone from Washington Congress still has to give its consent and appropriate funds for the project. Secretary of Defense Lovett asked Congress to authorize construction of military installations costing about $3.027,752.000. "jbuiig Blythevllln's air base, to be re-activated at a cost of about $16,203 000 The installation here is scheduled for activation under the Tac- 14m rV Comm * ntl «"Ui about MM officers, airmen, and civilians to be stationed here. II approved by Congress, work on the base will begin In the fiscal year loss, beginning July ], 1953, Mr. Gainings said. Hearings Are Soon "I talked lo Chairman vinson of the House Aimed Forces Commit- lec this morning and he said hearings on the insinuations will be held soon," Mr. Gathings reported Project authorizations by congress are preliminary to appropriation of mcney.to pay for them The Air Force said: "II authorized and funds made available at a future date, this construction will provide for airfield liquid fuel storage and equipment, operational aircraft maintenance i-jer-. il housing, facilities, family, _. administration and 'community facilities, utilities^ land ac- quisitation, medical facilities, storage facilities and shcps." The request, comes under the public works bill for the next fiscal year. The base population estimated by the Air Force is 200 officers 1 000 airmen, and 200 civilian workers.

Chamber of Commerce and city officials have been seeking re-activation of the field here for some time. In January, a party of Air Fore* officers inspected the base and city, saying the Air Force was on a "buying tour." Apparently the choice of bases to re-activate had been narrowed and the Inspection lour was for the final decision Tile base was built In 1942 to train flyers for World War II.
