Steel leaders who have been cool toward the NRA from the start, and have haggled for weeks over a bitter strike in their Captive mines in the Pennsylvania coal fields, acceded Monday nighi to a settlement on lines laid down by the president. . Mr. Roosevelt also wrested from them a price concession on steel rails, opening the way for perhaps the largest single railroad order ia hiatory which will give employment to thousands of workers wherever railroads run thru the winter and spring. The captive mine settlement gave the strikers virtually everything they demanded. The steel companies, traditional foes of >.r- ganized labor, even yielded the "check-off." On the rail price dispute, the government made a decisively for- BOOSTS GOLD PRICE ABOVE $32 ward stride in its program to put men back to work. The public works administration is going to loan railroads close to $40,000,000 to buy 800,000 tons of rails and more than 100,000 tons of spikes, tie fasteners and other equipment The steel companies' uniform bids of J37.75 per ton for rails were rejected Saturday by Railroad Coordinator Eastman. He said the price was too high. He arraigned the companies for what he believed to be collusion ia submitting the bids. Meeting with the president, steel executives defended their price as representing only cost plus a fair profit Eastman still insisted that 135 was a fair price. --- -Mfirthe interest of getting people to work," a white house statement said, the president proposed to split the difference. The price of $36.37% was agreed upon. Four steel companies wlta>- rail mills are expected to share the huge order. They are U- S. Steel, which has rail mills at Pittsburgh, Chicago and Birmingham, Ala.; Bethlehem, with mills at Lackawanna, N. Y., Sparrows Point, Mr., and Steeltpn, Pa,, Inland Steel at Indiana Harbor. Ind.; and Colorado Iron and Fuel Co. at Pueblo, Colo. Operating at full capacity, the mills will require at least three months to fill the order. U. S. Steel's Pittsburgh rail mill alone can give work tc 15,000 men, according to trade authorities here. A white house statement on the captive mine settlement referred cautionsly to "substantial agreement," but Recovery Administrator Johnson and NRA Counsel RlcLi- berg said the whole controversy was "washed up" in a manner satisfactory to them.

LITVI1FF GIVEN DIPLOMATIC VISA Unusual Courtesy Is Sccorded by U. S. PARIS <CB—Marim Litvinoff Russian foreign minister, will sai for the United States probably Tuesday with what* is believed to be the first diplomatic passpor visa ever given a Soviet Russian official by the United States. Though- the visa does Mot Imply recognition, it did constitute an important concession and one indicating the ' confidence with which restoration of normal relations is anticipated when Litvinoff confers at Washington with President Hoosevelt. The visa usually is accorded only to accredited representatives of nations enjoying normal relations. It gives the bearer immunity from customs and other formalities and to an extent gives extra territorial privileges. As Litvinoff made ready for his departure, news came from Berlin that his conference en route from Moscow with Baron Konstantin von Neurath, German foreign minister, resulted in restoration of journalistic relations between Germany and Russia. Several Soviet Russian newspaper men were arrested at the reichstag incendiary trial, then being held at Leipzig. Russia regarded the arrests as a studied insult and ordered all Russia correspondents in Germany to re turn home. This order was foi lowed by expulsion of all Ger man newspaper men in Russia Correspondents of both coun tries now will return to the! posts. 000,000 in community fund projects in the next few weeks.

The ultimate conclusion of the governors, it appeared, will be price pegging, inflation, debt refinancing and a mortgage moratorium. DES MOINES (ED—Governors o five midwest states and representa tlves of four other commonwealths continued Tuesday a conference on agricultural problems. Their sym pathies appeared to be inclining toward price fixing and currency in flation. Seeking solution of the fanners problems, the governors heard a. dozen speakers who were unable to appear during a full day Monday and then were to go into private deliber ations to draft their conclusions. With state-wide embargoes on farm goods definitely sidetracked, it appeared some recommendation for pegging the price of farm products at production cost levels, a project of currency inflation and possibly a mortgage moratorium would "be agreed on.
