The potent CIO United Steelworkcrs brought its Executive Board and Wage Policy Committee to this steel capital for possibly momentous sessions. The USW's top strategists may either outline the way to a peaceful settlement or lay the groundwork for a nation-wide steel strike. To Speed Contract While union leaders huddle here, Washington officials are getting set to wade into the twin problems of wages and prices in an effort to speed signing of a new contract before the Jan. 1 deadline. Should a walkout be authorized Cyrus S. Ching, director of the l"ederal Mediation and Conciliation Service, Is expected to call industry and union negotiators to Washington. May Delay Bargaining ,But if the union cfecides to withhold Its strike threat for a while, Ching may delay arranging bargaining sessions in Washington. Most likely Ching will wait for word from USW President Philip Murray meeting, here before announcing his plans. The union has levelled a 22-point demand on the steel industry but all attention is centered on its deal- Ings with VS. Steel Corps Since that company usually sets the pat- v tern. Industry WanU Price Relief Th« DSW wants a substantial w*g« Increase, guaranteed annual vag'e, union, shop and improved incentive and premium pay.

U.S. 1952 Budget Seen at $83 Billion WASHINGTON MY-An M billion dollar spending program for the new fiscal year—several billion below earlier forecasts — was predicted today In the wake of efforts by President Truman to cut the new budget. The President devoted much of his lima during hT s recent Florida visits to the budget for the liscal period beginlng netx July 1. There were reports Army weapons procurement had been lenliillv- fly slashed six billion in the new budget. pected within H day or so. Diplomatic informants said the four powers will emphasize that the command is a voluntary organization, and that once It Is created it will be thoroughly cooperative in nature— to such an extent that the troops of one member nation could not be moved into another without specific permission. "Poor Position filed" The Russians are also being lold that they are in a poor position to criticize any joining of powers for defensive purposes since it is international Communism's record ol conduct in;the Middle East, against Turkey and Greece particularly, that has created the circumstances in which other nations now find it desirable to unify Ihcir defense el- forts. *:;.'-- .'i, Prop-m Is Stow - -rr'-It^was learned .that ;* giessTfii organization of 'trie com-' mand(has been very slow for many weeks and probably will continue to be so for several months.

Soviets May Aid Mid-EastEconomy Moscow Hints She Would Respond to Requests for Help By EDDY GILMORE . MOSCOW m—The Soviet union may be ready to consider giving economic and industrial assistance to the Middle East, whose conflicts with the West have been receiving great attention here. Informed observers in Moscow say that Ir overtures for such aid were made to the O. S. S. R., the Soviet Government would give the mailer earnest consld.-ration. "Sympathy" Expressed The Soviet Union has officially exprcssc''. "sympathy and understanding" with the peoples of the Middle East, and the press has. conspicuously published Middle Eastern news since the beginning of the oil crisis in Iran and throughout the Egyptian quarrel with the British. When (lie West proposed a Middle East Command, including Turkey. Egypt and other Middle Eastern nations, the Soviet union at once set forth its position. In notes Nov. 21 and 22, the U. S S R warned the Middle Bast nations ag.iinst participation in such a command, which, it said, would deal a "serious, blow" to relations between the Soviet Union and the Middle Eastern countries. • Prolrsl Moves Backed At the same time Moscow made it plain it was In accord with any move In the Middle Eastern countries to throw out British and American Influences. The - /lets appear to bt convinced their protest fell on attentive ears. The press gives Russians the impression that the Middle East peoples welcomed the notes and want .no part of the Middle East Command. Would Buy Oil H seems likely Russia would be interested in purchasing Middle East oil if it were offered to her Iran announced recently It would sell to "anyone" If the West did not order the stored up Iranian oil by Dec. 22.

N. spokesman, snid the R«Is have not asked for an extension beyond :he Dec. 27 deadline. Neither have the Allies. "There is no question of extension of any time limit or anything" Nuckols said. "This was a 30 day trial offer, you might say." Nuckols said the time limit was proposed by the United Nations lommand to hasten agreement on truce, but "if the progress made this far is an indication of the effectiveness of the incentive, then don't think the Incentive provided very much incentive." Buffer Zone Center Under terms of the agreement a provisional 145-mile cease-fire .line across Korea would become the center of a 2',1-mile-wide buffer zone If an armistice were signed by Dec. 27. If no agreement Is reached before the deadline, the negotiations and the lighting will continue. A new line will be drawn just before a truce Is signed to include any battle changes. An Allied radio broadcast from Tokyo Monday night declared acceptance of Red demands for blanket exchange of war prisoners might sentence some Allied- soldiers "to life In Communist slave labor camps."

Results or Monday's two subcommittee sessions at Panmunjom were described by Nuckols as absolutely negative. Both groups agreed to meet again Tuesday at 11 a.m. (8 p.m. CST Monday). Reds Appear Curious The U.N. spokesman said Communist subcommitteernan appeared to be curious about the list of Red prisoners Allied delegates have put on the conference table the past two days. The list covers 2,500 sheets of paper, printed on both side's. Nuckols said the Communists asked a double-barrelled question Monday: "When you say you are ready with 1 a list of names," pointing to the foot high pile of reccrds, "Li that the list ol all the names of prisoners of war you have. And Is That the List? t "And is that the list of all of those you are ready to release?" Hear Adm. R. E. Libby said the list carried up-to-date data on prisoners the Allies hold. "It is in the same form and gives the same information with respect to these people as we have asked you to furnish on our prisoners oi war which your side holds." Libby added. Nuckols Estimates Tolal Nuckols estimated the U.N. list Includes 125.000 to 150.000 names. "All the names have been reported to Geneva, so don't make any mystery ol this." he added.
