IN SHORT SUPPLY Iron Is Key in Reds' Plan to Outstrip U. S. By 6USTAV SVENS50N MOSCOW (AP)-lron ii a key —and t formidable problem—in the new Soviet master plan to out- produce the United States. Where it once was available, Iron ore now is in short supply. While the shortage is speeding the Soviet Union's approach to the age of plastics, iron ore still oc< cuples a dominant role in the sev *n-year-plan. Laying down the terms ef this plan for Soviet industrial expan •ion, Premier Mlklta Khrushchev stressed to the Communist Party Central Committee that the iron industry—"especially its iron ore base" — ranked first among the tasks ahead. BwinoHnf Steadily The iron content in the ores o Krivoi Rog in the Ukraine and el the Urals, once the backbone ef Soviet heavy industry, has been dwindling steadily. Articles in Soviet scientific journals have •poken of this as an iron brake on Soviet industrial expansion. Mining Journal, a periodical for (he industry, has pointed out tha Soviet industry has been long auf fering from an acuto shortage e iron ore. "The quality of fKrivei Rog ores poses an acute problem," th Jounal said, "since the iron con tent of commercial or* ha dropped from 60.3 per cent in 1933 to 55.3 per cent in 1956." Discussing the same area, an Academy ef Sciences Journal ailed Questions of Economics reported early this year that In he first six months of 1957, the ron content of these ores was re- luced by 0.70 to 0.7S per cent as ompared with 1056. The magazine added that as for be Urals ores, which never were >t superior quality, the iron con- ent dwindled even faster. Nationwide Collection The government has conducted nationwide campaigns for scrap ron collection on a • scale unparalleled since the war, The iron ore shortage may be temporary, but a mighty effort will be required to cope with what Soviet economists describe as a bottleneck for further industrial expansion. Soviet planners apparently feel they must take advantage of new deposits discovered in Siberia and Kazakhstan, suitable to fast open- pit mining, even though far from industrial centers of European Russia. Under the seven-year-plan, new deposits will form the base for large industrial combines in an eastern Soviet industrial area, The plan earmarks 40 per cent of its total investment for development of these areas, where iron will play a leading role in the attempt to bring the plan to fruition.

Ask about it today, r Coal Miners to Get $2 Per Day Boost as Agreement Is Reached By NORMAN WALKER WASHINGTON Wl — A new soft coal industry labor contract will give 180,000 miners a two- stage $2 per day pay boost next year. John L. Lewis, president of the United Mine agreement on Workers, the pact reached Tuesday with the Bituminous Coal Operators Assn., the industry's largest abor bargaining group. It may be signed formally today. Details were withheld pending the signing but it was learned the agreement provides for a $1.20 per day boost for miners Jan. 1 and another 80-cent increase next April 1. Hie miners' basic wage has been $22.23 daily. A boost from $180 to $200 in annual vaca tion pay was also provided. Separate Pacts Tht big newt ef the industry agreement was that separate pacts will be signed by owners of commercial mines and captive mines. The captives are mines operated for fuel for steel mills and utility plants. Th« agreements are to be identical except that the commercial pact will Include a new union- wanted proviso that the commercial mines will refuse to buy or handle coal produced by nonunion mines. The captives flatly refused to accept this, fearing possible antitrust law violation. The clause is intended to make it more difficult for nonunion producers to market their coal and thus weaken their opposition to signing union contracts with Lew UMW. About a fifth of the nation's bituminous production is mined outside the union contract terms. Expert Ratification Directors of the Southern Coal Producers Assn. meet today for expected ratification of the new agreement. Both the bituminous coal group and the union's Wage- Policy Committee ratified It Tuesday. The new agreement runs for at least a year, and thereafter until either side terminates it on 60-day notice.

He has terminated the anthracite contract effective Jan. 1 and is reported mainly seeking to bolster the sagging, employer- financed anthracite welfare fund. seven them.

At Wells, $190,000 in bonds were approved for new sewers and Babbitt voters toted to raise the pay of future mayors from $30 yearly to $40 a month, a whopping 1600 per cent increase.
