Tries for Negotiations Ching was reported trying to get Philip Murray, president of the CIO and head of Its striking stcelworkcrs union, to negotiate directly today with the U.S. Steel Corp. In New York. Murray went to New York from meetings in Cleveland with his CfO lieutenants. ChJng has been meeting with Industrial relations experts of U.S. Steel, the nation's biggest steel producer, for more than a week. The union has refused lo budge from its position that the dispute should be settled according to the terms of a re[x>rl by a presidential fact finding board. This called for employer-paid pension - insurance benefits worth up lo 10 cents an liour. Steel firms have all agreed to put up that amount of money if the workers will chip in something too. : There was no word on the request of a number of steel firms that the presidential board be reconvened to "clarify" il.s findings. Any reconvening would have to be done by Mr. Trumatj. ' Tlie possibility of getting Murray to tiiec't with US. Steel's representatives, was not too remote. On Tuesday, , the corporation's chairman, Irving S. Olds f said it seemed sensible for company and union to "sit down and see how far w-e could get toward agreeing on a pension jiro- gvam." Murray had declined to comment on Old's suggestion. There had been no direct negotiations between the union and steel companies since the strike began Oct.. 1. . Strike. effects grew steadily worse, froduclion of up to U.OOO,- U00 tons of steel has been tost, *pellln£ shortages of alt sores of fabricated metal' Items tu the months ahead. Besides the growing unemployment, there was a threat of a fuel shortage* if the 39-day mine walkout lasted much longer. Already, more than 60o passenger trains had been discontinued on government orders to save coal. Peace efforts appeared bogged down In the coal strike. Union-operator talks at Blucficld, W.a., recessed yesterday until next Tuesday. There were indications that once Mr. Truman decides to act it'will be to exercise the prestige of his office, 'nils could mean calling the disputing parties to the White House for a personal appeal, or it could be an invitation to negotiate in the White House, A step of this sort was understood to be preferred by administration law emergency powers, with their advisers to use of the Taft-Hartley eventual strike-halting court injunctions. , HERf'S YOUR FAVORITE SWEIT CORN ' ' TALI IN FtAVOR...TEMPTING IN TASTE PRIDES liiiNOii he Favorite in Dixieland for 72 yean Genuine COUNTRY GENTLEMAN Cream Style White Sweet Corn So easy 10 prcp-irc .. - ii's already cooked.
