BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS — THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHEAST ARK-*V«» S *«n = - ^"^ YOL. XLVII— NO. 232 U.S. Doubts It Can Avert Steel Strike High-level Talk Begins; Walkout Set for Dec. 31 By NOHMAN WALKER WASHINGTON (AP) — High-level Government talks in tlie ominous steel dispute started today but officials were suddenly doubtful that a New Year's Day strike of workers can be avoided., The change In attitude became apparent as representatives ol major steel firms gathered la: negotiations with CIO President Philip Murray. The talks were arranged by Cyrus S. Ching, the Government's ace labor trouble-shooter. Walkout Called Bee. 31 Murray has called the walkout for midnight Dec. 31, when present contracts expire. He is demanding a 15-cejlt hourly pay boost and other concessions for his million- member sieelworkers union. The workers presently average just under two dollars an hour in earnings, including overtime. Until the past few days Government experts and steel industry spokesmen felt the threatened walkout could be avoided somehow, by a settlement or at least a strike postponement. They Feel Differently Now they feel quite differently. They say privately, as Murray said publicly last Monday, that a strike In the vital metal-producing industry seems inevitable. Several developments are responsible for this reversal in appraising the situation. One Is that Murray apparently has ruled out in advance the idea of bowing to a personal appeal from President Truman to cancel the strike order, or to delay It., Murray said categorically hU men won't work without contracts after present agreements expire. Lewis Cheers Murray Secondly, John L. Lewis, the coal mineri 1 union chief who was once Murray'* closest iriend, has publicly cheered Murray on. Lewis told • packed, newa conference yesterday that the steelworkers deserve a raise and' the steel, lD4wtay. ihould grant one. >-<6sJSb }--' Ten steel companies ieSTiy J Steel Corporation, the Iridusj biggest producer, were on hand''fo. the conferences arranged by Oiling. director or I he J Federal Mediation Service.
