YORK, Dec. 5. — (UP) — Robert R. Wason, president of the National Association oC Manufacturers, called upon President Tru- rrian yesterday to settle the coal 'strike "without nay concession of .my kind" to John L. L?wis and his United Mine Workers. Wason, speaking before NAM's 5Ut"nnnunl Congress of American Industry at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, made » bitter attack on Ijewis and on labor, which he slid luid become a ."super-government" ill.the United Stoles. ;,'."lThe sovereign power of the Un/ed Stoics Is Infringed by John I>. : :Lewis with the sjovennnont's complicity." Wason said. •'Germany couldn't do it. Japan couldn't do It: Lewis strikes the government with government approval. ".'The. strike is not one between the government and John I. LSI Is or Philip Murray or Caesar Pc- tcillo. It is a struggle by the Aincr- ican people to regain their rights sold to L«wis and Murray )>y a government in exchange for the people's votes." •Wason said that fn ihc recent election the people had moved "farther to the right than the ]io- liticinns of cither party." There was no assurance, he added, "that thi?."ricw parly In power will not again placate labor and penalize the public." "Government's sellout to labor In 11. years. Of concessions at public expense has created economic anarchy in America." Wnson said. "If labor's monopoly is sustained by the new Congress, continued • coercion or the public Is inevitable." . Harrfman Speaks 'Secretary of Commerce W. Ave- rcll Harriinan predicted thai measures yili be proposed in the next Congress to "clarify" [he responsibilities of labor unions to the public. "The power of labor leaders has crown to a point where we find one man defying the government and the nation," he said. "It seems evident tliat In the coming session of Congress measures will bo proposed with the objective of clarifying the relationship between the rights of laboi unions in representing their members and their responsibility tc the public." Harriman said he believed labo had a major responsibility In pre venting inflationary Increases ii. prices. "During the past six months," lit said, "the cost of iiving has risen sharply, and thus real wages have /alien. But labor can contribute to the avoidance of n further spiral in prices and eventually gain a firm increase in real wages if it ivlll show restraint now in Its wage demands." Management, on the other hand, . "must adopt pricing policies b:is- fcd.. on long-range consideration and not immediate profit." Harriman pointed out that government practically has withdrawn froni the control of prices and wages, and that the NAM had urged decontrol. The public, now looks to the association lo prevent a steady'increase in prices, he s.aid.

The Judge vockd com- forlnbly in his red leather swivel chair and observed that the government's suggested findings of fact and law seemed about rip hi Lo him.
