NAUGATCCK NEWS (CONN.), THURSDAY, OCT. », IMfr-FACE 11 MARCH OF EVENTS CIO National Convention To Expedite Sleel Peace? Unsettled Steel Squabble Could Embarrass Murray Special to Central Press W ASHINGTON—The CIO national convention, opening in Cleveland Oct. 31, may well put the greatest element of pressure on President Philip Murray to get a settlement of the steel strike. Murray will go to the convention determined to smash the power of left-wing unions and to expel those which continue to defy the jdicts and policies of the parent body. A rousing battle is promised by both factions. An unsettled steel walk-out, with over half a million workers idle, could prove very embarrassing' to Murray when he mounts the rostrum at the convention hall. The left-wingers have been sniping at his leadership and have condemned his acceptance of the steel fact-finding board's recommendations, rejected by the industry. If the strike is still on when the convention opens, the leftists will make capital of it. They ; almost certainly will question Murray's effective| ness as a leader both of the national CIO and i the Steehvorkers Union. Hence the CIO chieftain is under heavy pressure to put his own union's house in order before wading into a new scrap with left-wing enemies. Philip Murray • KIW STTPERSONIC PLANE—Next American plane to fly faster tban sound will be the Douglas X-3, which is designed to exceed 1,000 miles in level flight. The X-3 will be the third in a series of especially designed supersonic research aircraft to crack the sonic barrier. The Bell^-1 was first and there is no doubt, although not officially announced yet, that the Douglas Skyrocket has several times beaten the 763 m. p. h. (at sea level) sound-speed. However, fantastic speeds being bruited about as attained by the Skyrocket must be discounted. Stories have it that the Skyrocket tint "design characteristics" that would permit an 1.800-mile-an- hour speed. Actually, no power plant has been developed that would drive a plane at that speed. In dives, both the X-l and the Skyrocket may several times t have exceeded the 1.000 m. p. h. speed but in level flight—the true test— tb« X-3 figures to be first. * * * * • SUSPICION!—Rep. Carroll D Kearns (R>. Pennsylvania, thinks Congress should send an expedition to Fort Knox. Ky.. to see If the nation's huge gold reserves are still there The Pennsylvanian revealed that he was prompted to propose •uch action because he has been unable to find any House member ."who had ever seen the hidden reserve at Fort Knox." Kearns introduced a. resolution requesting House Speaker Sam Rayburn (D).

The Boeing six-jet B-47 Stratojet recently made its first test flight with engines 25 per cent more powerful than those originally Installed. This does not meaJi that the speed of the 600-mile-per-hour ship, has been stepped up one-fourth to 750 m. p h., but military men believe the swept-'wing whirlwind will Stratojet be capable of reaching that speed for short periods The Stratojet's range is limited to distances only May Reaeh about one-fifth of those attainable by the giant 750 M. P. H B-36. However, it is so fast that it would be harder to intercept and shoot down. Speed near and over the target ii considered paramount by air tacticians. If congressional investigation, results in de-emphasis of the controversial B-36. the Stratojet may play a larger role in the picture, operating- from advance bases overseas in case of war.
