TUESDAY, JULY 1, 1952 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS CIO Plugs Away at Small Steel Firms Top Producers ' Still Ignoring Union Demonds PITTSBURGH WV- The CIO United Steeiworkers plumed away today Fit the steel industry's small companies while top producers i;rm- Unvicri to ignore the union's demands for settlement of Ihe 30-day SIPO] .strike, So far ihe union has come to tcnn.s with 31 steel-producing finis. u Hawing move than 50,000 to resume work. The bulk of the union membership— about, 600.000— Ls still wailing for a new contract. Latest to sign is Harrisburg (Pa.) Strpl Covp,, which employs 1.2SQ workers.

The fini signed a pfici last night calling for a wage increase of sp- pi'oxi-naiely 15 cents an hour, modified union shop, six paid holidays and three weeks vacation annually for 15 year 15 «=*»rviro The modified union shop means new cmiiloyes must join the union, but can withdraw between their 2, v th antt 30th day of employment. Sessions Guarded Closely Meanwhile, leaders of the union are meeting with other small com- pnmes across the nation but the s onions are closely guarded secrets— none of the companies has been identified. One bi£ reason for the secrecy is that the slcelworke's chief, Philip Mm tny, fpars the big pru- duces will bring pressure "> bear or. tlie smaller firms and block. possible agreements. The big companies, such as U.S. Si eel Corp., the nation's top producer, are bitterly opposed to the union shop issue. It was one of the recommendations the Wage Stabil- izatlon Hoard made when it al- tempted to avert the costly strike. Letters Are Mailed Only yesterday U.S. Steel sent letters 1o all of its employes saying It is not trying io wreck their union hut is fighting the union shop issue because "voluntarism, freedom of choice ... is the backbone of our society."

The Big Six of the industry, U.S. Steel, Bethlehem Steel, Republic Steel, Jones and Laughlin Steel, Youngstown Sheet and Tube and Inland Steel, turn out approximately 75 per cent of the total normal production.

Tart's supporters — with the Ohio senator here in poison to direct Ihe campaign — undoubtedly would make similar appeals in the event of n decision favoring Eisenhower. The Taft people cavo a little ground last nlnhl. They finally asrcrd in a subcommittee sesMon to allow rival delecations from Texas and Louisiana an hour and a half each to make their arguments N'otins that Ihe Taft tones wanted to limit arpument to ihe traditional 30 minulre. the Eisenhower statement !-aid the chnnne of heart proles that public opinion "can force Hie convention officials to hold an open, unriuBcri convention." This went back to Ihe Eisenhower bacfcpiv charge — heaieitlv denied by tht-ir opponents — that tile Taft people ha\'e stolen dele- sates and Drubbed control of the convention machinery, in fart, Tu[t backers are running the show at Chicago. But they bridle nt any snecicstion that they ri?gcd tile machinery. In spile ot Ihe compromise on nrsninc lime today, Ihere was at leir-t a temporary docuilork on TV.

The lank in the 4ft and w Ion class, has several notable ni-.v lea- SENATE tares: , 1. A lower silhouette -than any I other Amtricnn tank of corr^pomi-1 ing size. Present u. S. tanks have! heen criticized because their height j made them easily spotter!. 2. An epH-stlaped, sloping elliptical hull and turret. This makes it harder for tin enemy shell to "bite" into the ariRwr. 3. Wider trends than present me- rlium tnnks. The wider Ihe the tread, the bettor the tank can op-1 irate nn muddy roads, in swampy terrain or in snov. 4. A 60-millimeter, high velocity euii with a quick change'tube.
