This word came from a high a<l- mmislrullvc source who said Jus- lice Depnrlmeni altorneys were Instructed yesterday afternoon to prepare papers leading to possible partial seizure of the industry. The critical situation which ) ws resulted from the 47-day steel strike was disclosed yesterday ol a While House mecllnfr. presided over by Acting Defense Mpbillzcr John R. Rtcclman. Tlie Selective Service Act Rives Ihe President power to seize only plants ivhich fall t o produce under direct contract with procurement agencies.

Is .luthorixei! to |,-,k e "| m . mediate possession of the plants of such producer." President, Truman seized the entire steel industry last April 8 but on June 2 the Supreme Court ruled he lacked Authority to do so and ordered the mills returned to private ownership. Tlie April 8 seizure was based on no specific law but rather on what the Jnslice Department said were the President's Inherent constitutional powers. former Solicitor General phllin Perlman told both the District and Supreme Courts In the seizure cnse the government had considered seizure undr-r the Selective Service Act but had derided tlie method was too cumbersome and too difficult to pursue.
