TWOTtSCAY, JULY 8S, 1958 Half-Million Are Preparing For Strikes Defense Workers Included in Those faddy to Quit WASHINGTON Wi—Well over a half-million workers are poised for a possible mid-summer series of strikes across the nation. They Include about 100,000 workers in the vital copper-producing industry and more than 5,000 at the Oak Ridge, Tenn., atomic energy plants. Many of the unions involved are seeking pay boosts like those earlier this year in the steel and auto Industries. Pay increases have been running in the neighborhood of 5 to 10 cents an hour. Probably the most imminent strike threat is at the,Oak Ridge atomic plants, where AFL workers are asking higher wages and other benefits. One of the installations threatened with strike action is the atomic laboratory which builds experimental projects for scientists. Time Runs Out The Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service won a 10-day postponement of a threatened strike at Oak Eidge but the respite period runs out at midnight Sunday. Nearly 200,000 telephone workers across the nation are talking strike. The CIO's communications workers union says it has not set any date as yet for a walkout. But phone exchange workers in Los Angeles, several cities In Indiana, and in Maryland and Virginia have staged "quickie" walkouts of several days each. The International Union of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers (Ind.) recently' announced that woikers at the Anaconda, Kennecott, Phelps- Dodge and American smelting and BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK.)"

It was announced (hut the next meeting: would be set by liaison officers. There was no word what details of a truce the staff officers discussed. Communist radio stations reacted violently to President Synginnn Klicc's statement yesterday that South Korea will follosv its own course of action unless the Reds | agree within six months after a truce is signed'to evacuate North Korea. The Reds said an armistice was endangered but indicated a truce was still possible. And Communist workmen cominued work on a new building for the armistice signing ceremonies. On n visit to the batUefront during the day. Rhei; told Associated j Press Correspondent John Ran- i dolph he would not obstruct an armistice "under certain conditions." "If we can see our way to survive, we cnn reach agreement," he said. "But if we cannot see our way to survive that is a different thing." The old statesman has said many times his nation cannot survive divided and with Chinese Commu- front, he talked for 55 minutes with U. S. Ambassador Ellis O. BrlRgs. Briggs delivered a message released in Washington by U. S. Secretary of State John Poster Dulles. The statement said the United Slates presumed Rliee vould abide by assurances that le would no! impede an armistice. Nolc Rejected A high South Korean source said late today that a U. 8. State Department noto delivered to Rhea yesterday was "quite unsatisfactory." The source, who asked not to bo identified, said the letter failed to give satisfactory answers to questions raised by South Korea during talks last month between Rhen and Asst. Secretary of State Waiter Robertson, President Eisen- "There were some answer* to I some questions and no answers to other questions. Quite unsatisfactory," the source said. South Korean Prime Minister Paik Too Chin said the U. S. government is threatening to withhold a billion dol'ars in military and economic aid unless "the Republic of Korea completely abandons its opposition to American Ideas as 1 to an armistice." two half-brothers.
