Philip Murray, president of both he CIO and the USW. has sum- loned the ateelworkers' two most xwerful (froups Into nctlon—the 8-memfoer Executive Board and he 10-mcmber Wage-Policy Com- iHtee. Two COUTBM Open Apparently them are only two ourscfl open to the sUelworker/;: 1. They, like the steel compan- es, can accept President Truman's nnndaU; that there must be no In- «rruptlon of steel production—vl- l to. the U. S. defense effort, 2. They may go through with he strike and face a ixwsible Pros- dcntial Tall-Hartley Act crack- lown. The president asked both com- innte.s nnd union to turn the clls- mle over to the Wage stabilization Doard for settlement. Mr. Truman said the workers, 1! entitled to a wage raise, would get it; and the companies, If entitled to a, price .ncreasc, would yet It. Graceful Retreat I'osslble To agree to the Presidential request, Murray will have to back down from hi* previous statement that the ateclworkcrs will not work without a contract. He can 1 do thU gracefully If his Executive Doard and Wage Policy Committee order him to do so tomorrow. The union wants an 18^ cent hourly pay raise, guaranteed annual wage, the union shop, Improved Incentive and premium pay, nd other, benefits. The steelwork- rs now get a little less than $2 n hour. Just how big a raise the steel ompantes -can pay, with or wlth- ut an increase In the price of teel, la n matter of dispute.

There was belief In some quarters here today that Prime Minister Churchill might have this plan In the portfolio of proposals he b bringing ne. • month to talk over with President Truman. The Pentagon holds that while '"! combined c'''efs agency was lighly useful in the prosecution of an actual, global war, with nil its ramifications, such, an Anglo-American command would not be needed to operate In a North Atluntic Alliance. Presumably this view has been passed along to the President. The combined Chiefs of Staff wiw; created In February, 1942, through agreement between Mr. Churchill ami the late President Roosevelt. The organization then was about what Its name Indicated — the membership of the chiefs of staff of the two nations.

UMW Officials Arrive ABKANSANS IN Washlnrton By GORDON BROWN WASHINGTON. (/!>)—Rep. Oren Harris <D-Ark) who believes the government should be operated for convenience of the public and not government officials, expounded his view bluntly to Interstate Commerce Commission officials the other day. A barge line has applied for a permit to operate on the Ouachita River In Louisiana and Southern Arkansas. The ICC assigned an examiner to hold a hearing on the case in Little Rock. Site an "Inconvenience" Harris said he considered this site an Inconvenience since it was 120 miles north of El Dorado and most of the persons Interested in the lease lived in El Dorado and other j parts of South Arkansas. Harris said he told the ICC that there was talk In Arkansas that I the hearing had been set In Little Rock purely for the convenience of the trial examiner nnd "a couple | of railroad attorneys." ICC members, Harris said, de- |nled this. "Then I said," Harris related, "thftt between 200 and 300 people 1 In Southern Arkansas and ns far south as Monroe, La., were Interested in this case and could have to drive 200 to 300 miles for the Mt for Little Rock. "I said I thought a hearing should be located for the convenience of these people and thai the ICO should take these matters Into consideration in selecting a hearing site." Reasons Given Harris said he then was told that Little Rock was selected because the examiner was en route from Tulsa, Okla., to Dallas, Tex., and Little Rock was considered a convenient place. ,"I- said that this was exactly what I was trying to get across— that Little Hock was convenient the government .officials, not public." The ICC made a last minute switch and ordered the hearing held at El Dorado. The barge line, Wardlaw Towing Co., New Orleans, won a temporary permit to expand Its service on the Ouachita.
