He said that since the unton b«- >an wage contract negotiations last November—"a long, long time ago," —the Industry consistently has rc- 'used to bargain. "Thfs positive fact," Murray said, "stands out as one of the mcst historic points In these long proceedings: that Is the Industry stubbornly refused to negotiate even at the personal request of the President of the United States," STEEL (Continu«d (rom Page 1) bombarded wilh questions almost frr-m the lime he started talking. Davis argued that (he steel mills were seized without due process at law and therefore in violation of the Fifth Amendment. "It is an immutable principle that ours Is a government of laws and not of men," he said. Davis, a one-time solicitor gen eral who was the Democratic pres Idcntial nominee in 1924 (he los to Calvin Coolidge), conceded ft was not mandatory upon the Presi dent to Invoke the Taft-Hartley Act. But, he contended, any effor on the President's part to forge a new and different weapon for deal ing with labor-management dls putes "only points up our claim usurpation." Davis told the court that "powe grows by what it feeds upon." Hi added: "Those who occupy office unde the government, however lofty, ar still servants with limited duty ani power."

BAYONNE, N.J. <>P)—The commander of the aircraft carrier Wasp today will tell publicly for the first time his story about the collision that sank the destroyer-minesweeper Hobson, whose captain's last known words were—"somebody didn't change course." Some crew members of the destroyer Rodman, which picked up Hobson survivors, will precede Capt. B. C. McCaffree on the witness stand as a naval board of inquiry continues Its hearings into the Navy's worst peacetime disaster. The Wasp and Hotaon collided April 26 during night maneuvers in the Atlantic, and 176 lives were lost, including that of the Hobson's skipper. Ijt. Comdr. William J. Tierney. In quoting Tierney's last words, Seaman Peter A. Mahoney of Providence, R. I., told the board yesterday that he raced to the chart house on the bridge when the Wasp's sharp bow rammed Into the Hobson. Tierney Sat on Shield Tierney was sitting on a spraj shield nearby, Mahoney said. "The ship was listing badly but I dldn'l think we would sink," the sea mar added, "I asked him, 'What happened, captain?' He said, 'Somebody didn't change 'course,' Th'en he was washed awaj by the sea." Asked whether Tierney .seemei angry when he answered, Mahone: told the board: "No, I wouldn't say he was angry. Another witness, Ens, Donald E Laae of Buchanon, N.J., testlfie he was watching the Hobson's ra dar screen before the collision.

In cooperation with Congress could reject Truman's action by passing a law or adopting a resolution. Justice Jack son wo nde re d h<nv this could be done "If he (the President) has independent powers." Perlman replied that the President had agreed to abide by any action taken by Congress so, he aiiid, that Is not an issue. Perlmau, answering 1 a question by Justice Black, agreed there was no specific authority for the presidential seizure of the steel mills. But, he added, "we think the power is in the Constitution." Justice Douglas interjected at one point: "There Is no apparent need for Congress?" Perlman said he made no such contention, but there was an emergency and the President was the only authority under the Con stitution with the power and means to protect the nation under the circumstances.
