Pine filled correctly in calling President Truman'.s seizure of the steel mills "illegal 'and without authority of law." But a major question before the court — whether the President has the inherent constitutional powers which the Justice Department claimed for him — Is so complex that lawyers on both sides say a decision this soon would be surprising. 811 ccplng Decision Unlikely However, legal authorities here say that no matter how the court rules, it is not likely to issue a sweeping decision one way or the other on the question of the chief executive's inherent powers. These are powers not specifically set forth in the Constitution or the laws, and it wns oji powers that Truman relied when he took over the steel mills to avert a .strike.
