OUR INDUSTRIAL The tempo of the printing dispute quickened yesterday and there were scuffles between pickets and police and reports of damage to machinery. At the same time it became known that two national, organisations professing to be opposed to " trade union dictatorship " are ;helping to produce some provincial weekly papers with nonunion labour. They are also. helping in the publication of the "TV .Times " at Maidstone, where there was trouble between pickets and police on Wednesday The organisations, which are closely linked, are the People's League for the Defence of Freedom and the Free Press Society. -The latter, owns : a . pruning woiss m 68 killed s pi The Royal yacht Britannia, carrying the Queen and Prtnce Philip and President and Mrs Eisenhower, passes through the symbolic gates at the St Lambert lock, Montreal, after the formal opening of the St Lawrence Seaway London, the address of which it is in touch with the police, informing refuses to publish and since the them .of printing works where non- ""s5,ci viicn,,' tuursn' it ha spnt unionists intend to report for duty so . printing dispute , began it has. sent that they can have protection.

" This comes as no surprise to the leaders .of the" printing' unions. We have known- for some time- that he was trying , to build, up an! organisation to. weaken the printing, unions in the event' of a dispute. Now that his plans 'are being. put into action, ' he is' proving a great embarrassment to the very people who' have-sought his help to get their printing done. 'tFor example, the " TV Times has just ' had. widespread and unwelcome publicity which has gravely damaged its prestige" and standing in the eyes, of millions of television viewers.

' , - - Meanwhile supporters of the league are. maintaining that they have recruited well over a hundred printers' who are : . either . non-unionists; ex-. unionists, or the owners of small one-man businesses. These include some of the. regular staff at the Free Press, who are paid by the organisation. ' " If is said 'that the. others are merely collected tby ' the league and .passed on to printing, works which need them. Officials of the league .refuse to say where' these men are working -because its : activities are already being" subjected to " very heavy picketing." It . is' claimed.' however, that, the men have . been sent " all over the country." -" It is. said , by some that the league tives and volunteers took over produc tion, of the paper. " Vital pieces of mechanism were missing from some machines, . adjustments had bsen altered to others- and foreign, bodies inserted into hidden, sections of others Fortunately, the - majority of the machines were left in impeccable order." M P. AND POLICE ACTION Union "blackmail"' By our - Parliamentary Staff Captain H. B. Kerby. the Conservative member for Arundel, has put down' a motion calling on the Metropolitan police and othei police forces to counter " in the public interest,, trades, union blackmail and organised hooliganism." . His motion : begins by applauding " the efficient . action of the Kent county constabulary on the night of June 24 which alone permitted the 'TV Times.' printed in Maidstone to be distributed in the teeth of mass-picketing." The Chief. Constable of Kent, Lieutenant-Colonel, G. C. White, referred yesterday to the claim ,by Mr Brieinshaw. general secretary of Natsopa, that ' police dealing with picketing at the " Kent Messenger " office had exceeded their duty and manhandled Natsopa members. " From my knowledge and from inquiries," said Colonel White, "the Kent police have so far dealt with this difficult duty in. a fair and impartial manner."

The national steel strike, which the half-million United Steel-workers of America threatened three months ago, now seems to be inevitable. The ups and downs of two months' negotiations, the shifts' of attitude pos sible to a committee of 171 men on the one side and the heads of the twelve big steel companies on the other, have not changed the original position of the union, that a new contract must contain a wage increase and other benefits, or the position, of the owners, that for one more year labour costs must be frozen in order to curb inflation. - There .was a hopeful hour or two here last evening, when the union offered to delay the strike for fifteen days if the owners agreed to make apy intervening wage agreement retroactive from July 1. The owners refused and made instead the optimistic suggestion that the union should put the strike off indefinitely and accept "the present high rates of pay and other .benefits of the steelworkers subject to ten days' notice of termination." More bored than bitter The union replied that the counteroffer " makes no sense.'' The two sides rose, more bored than bitter, and retired to their separate lairs, the owners muttering President Eisenhower's warning that a wage increase is bound to spark off a- price increase, and the union leaders chanting the gist of a resolution .they circulated earlier in the-day, to the effect that : (a) It cost the industry less to produce a ton of steel than it did last year or in 1957, and . .' (b) that output per man-hour has outpaced wages and benefits. This fact, the, union said " gives the . lie to the Industry's deceitful propaganda line." The president of the Steelworkers' Union. Mr David McDonald, thereupon offered to meet the owners' negotiators this morning for what was understood to be a hairbreadth attempt to avoid cooling the. furnaces. The meeting " lasted less than two hours and put an abrupt end to the trying friendship of the owners' negotiating team and the unions' policy committee. Consequently, the orders wen out to the 'mills this afternoon to begin the progressive shutdown that is required of an industry whose momen tum, is slow to develop and impossible to arrest ' overnight. Deliveries of raw materials wece cancelled. The coke ovens, blast furnaces, and open hearth furnaces will be shut down by Monday or Tuesday. Union officials to-day were talking coolly about resisting the industry until the autumn or beyond. ' Head boy at school killed on climb in Skye Head boy at a -Cheshire school, David Fulton, aged 19, of Burder Road, Heswall, was found dead yesterday at the foot of a precipice below Sgurr Mhic Choiniech, a 3,300ft. peak in the Cuillins, Isle of Skye. His spine was fractured. He had been climbing alone and was last seen oh Sgurr Dearg. He was missed on Thursday night from the nostei wnere ne was staying and two search parties . went out. . Last night the boy's .parents, Mr and Mrs Eric Fulton, left for Skye. David Fulton was in his last year at Calday Grange Grammar School, Wirral, where he was head prefect, captain of the Rugby team, and leader o the school . cadet corps. He had intended going to Liverpool University in the autumn to study medicine. His headmaster, Mr E. W. Hawkins, said last night : "I am deeply shocked, by the news. David was a very adventurous boy and one of the . finest head boys' -the school could have wished for. -He was a great leader, and a fine character. We all had great hopes for him."

Welcoming the President In keeping wih her role as host, the Queen drove with Prince Philip this morning from the royal yacht Britannia in Montreal to the R.C.A J. base .at St Hubert, where President Eisenhower, with Mrs ' Eisenhower, accompanied by Mr Herter, the Secre-' tary 'of.

During the afternoon the Queen and Mr Eisenhower reviewed sixteen Canadian and - United States naval vessels in Lake St Louis.

Mr Lennox-Boyd, the Colonial Secretary, and the . heads of the delegations signed a report which includes important constitutional changes to become operative on January 1, 1960. The report states that before the Federation of the West Indies as a whole becomes a sovereign member of the Commonwealth it is desirable that the Constitutions of each of the component units should be brought oh to the same basis. This has required an extension of the powers of the legislative and executive councils, of each territory, and a reduction in the powers of the administrate!;- MORE TEACHER TRAINEES 4,000 extra places By our Parliamentary Staff Teacher-training ' colleges are to be expanded ' to provide four thousand places by 1964. The Minister of -Education, Mr Geoffrey Lloyd, announced yesterday, that he was expanding the project for 12,000 extra places announced in Septem ber : so that a further 4.000 will be provided by 1964 at- the latest. : The decision in September to increase training college places by 12,000 ' was intended to offset the effects of lengthening "the training .course from two to three years. The latest announcement means that witn the longer course the training colleges will not merely be able tq keep pace with the present turnover "but will be able to train well over 1,000 extra teacners every year. special empnasis will Be given m this expansion to the training of science and mathematics teachers. The Ministry of Education's report pub lished this week emphasised the seriousness of the shortage which still exists. At present the colleges have comfortable room for about 22,500 1 students. As a result of the efforts of individual colleges this has. been stretched to 25,000 students this year in initial training. Still not enough The Minister of Education referred to his decision in a speech yesterday at the annual meeting of the Association of Education Committees at Cardiff. He admitted that "the uncertainties which bedevil all estimates of teacher .supply are still with, us" but he took comfort in' the experience' gained this ye&r. . The' net increase in tne .number of teachers in 1958"was better than -in 1357 but "an annual increase of 5,400. is' clearly hot enough' if we are to get rid of oversize classes by the second half of the 1960s." He gave the warning that the 1958 figure was helped by" the deferment of national service and emphasised that the latest estimates of future births suggest that more teachers than expected will be needed by the late 1960s. " And I personally believe that the .movement to stay lonser 'at snhnVt is going to surprise many people as it gathers . momentum." The new additional programme of 4,000 extra places,, he said, will be carried out within two' years of completing the Dame Margot off to Rio to rejoin Dr Arias Dame Margot Fonteyn left London by air last .night on her way to South America for a reunion with her husband, Dr Roberto Arias.

The deposits were not hannful. but they could leave stains on certain material. Any cars that had been affected should be washed with water and a detergent, but if the deposits had got into the polish, the polish should be stripped off and the car repolished. The company apologised for any annoyance and inconvenience which had resulted, and said that all claims for proved damage would be dealt with as quickly as possible. Huddersfield's .
