STEEL (Continued from Page I) union today. The Industry has said publicly X needs *12-a-ton price boosts eteel now averages Jllo R ton—If x meets the government-suggested Wage settlement. Considerably low •r prtoe Increase figures have ben mentioned by the industry in talks WHh Amftll, however. Ban is Lifted Convinced by verbal and written assurances from Murray and company executive* that steel production was Jast getting back to normal, after partial shutdowns In the face of a strike threat, Secretary of Commerce Sawyer directed that . * ban on steel deliveries he lifted. It wasn't ns simple ns It sounded lor the government to grant Murray's demands. Industry lawyers thought that The Senale voted fa to i yesterday for the subcommittee to ion- tlnue Its Inquiry into Benton's de- intinds for ousting McCarthy from (he Serrate — but only after arguing for hours over what the vote would menu. Benton Is rt Connecticut Democrat, McCarthy n Wisconsin Republican, and both arc tip for reelection this year. For months they have been locked In Ijitter dis- pulc over McCarthy's Communlats- in-Govcrnment charges. McCarthy himself urged the Senate to Instruct (be mips subcommittee to go ahead with its probe of bin) but he coupled this wllh n resolution calling for nn investigation of Benton. nrntan to "Co-Oritrale" Bcntwi snld Jie would "co-operate to tt\c full" in any Investigation ilie rules committee decides to make of him. Sen. Monroncy (D-Okla), ami Sen. Ilendrickson (R-NJ), both subcommittee members, said that as far as they wore concerned McCarthy would be given a chance to testily nt n public hearing ami the subcommittee staff would check into the charges. This WHS the procedure followed on Benton's resolution. Ilendrickson suld he felt the Senate's unanimous vote on continuing (he McCarthy Inquiry was a vindication of the subcommittee but this viewpoint wn.s challenged In a stormy debate that 'preceded the roll call. 'Hie members, seeking a vote of contldence, asked their colleagues to vole n motion discharging the committee from further Investigation. But the vole was deprived of much of Its significance when McCarthy joined his opponents and voted with them. Investigation Sought McCarthy said such u vole would be an endorsement of the Idea that otlicr senators could be investigated ns he had been, and said ho now was asking for nn Investigation of Benton. McCarthy's resolution lor an Investigation of Benton came less than a month after the Wisconsin senator filed n two million dollar libel, slander and conspiracy suit against Bcnlon. In testifying before the rules subcommittee lust September, Benton accused McCarthy of perjury, fraud nnd deceit In pressing his Communists - In - Government charges. McCarthy retorted Benton wns Ivying lo block "my fighl to expose Communists." previous Supreme Court rulings gave the steel companies the right to sue for millions ot dollars worth of damages, equal to Ihe cost of wage increases d- ing seizure. This Is the reason the government carefully named the industry's regular executives us government managers under seizure. Thus, It seemed the government's course wns lo give every chance of a mnlunl conlracl agreement between Industry mid union before ombnrking on the drastic step of government denting directly with the union.

While the operators are gone, supervisory employe* Jwen service going as best they can. Most employe* o.' Southwest*™ Bell Telephone Company, the Bell affiliate which operates In Arkansas, are members of th« CIO Communications Workers of America, to which the Western Electric Installers also belong. The hit and run pickets struck at four Arkansas Bell exchanges yesterday for the first time. Pickets were stationed outside the Ft. Smith, Van Buren, Malvern and McGehec exchanges. The pickets remained last night and today at Ft. Smith, where louts distance service was chiefly affected since the local service Is dial- operated, but they withdrew after a few hours from the other exchanges. Local eervice, too. was affected at Van Burcn, Malvern and McOehee, all of which have manual exchanges, but was soon back to normal after the pickets left and op- eratcrs returned to their switchboards. New Type Dispute Evolves A different type of dispute developed at Pine Bluff, where operators walked out in protest over training supervisory personnel from Little Rock to handle the large nyinual exchange. Both sides announced last night, however, that the conflict had been settled and that operators would return to work at 6 a.m. today. The company fixed the number of Bell employes idled by yesterday's sympathy walkouts as around 370: Ft. Smith 150, Pine Bluff 140, Van Buren 20, Malvern 30, McGehce 30. DETROIT M>)_The CIO Communications Workers of America announced settlement today of their telephone strike against the Michigan Bell System. Settlement of the Michigan strike, terms of which were not immediately available, had been expected to set u pattern for contracts to end purely telephone worker walkouts In Ohio, New Jersey niul Northern California. It was not immediately clear whether the GWU would order telephone workers to cross Western torney general. Morris said, in reply to questions, that he would not have accepted the post if he had known about it. Instead, he said, he would have insisted that the matter be cleared up right away.

A Michigan agreement Is expected to set a pattern for ending the five-day-old strike that has Idled up to 380,000 phone workers In 43 state*. Some 77,888 actually have walked out In the wage dispute. These Include Sl.OOO Bell workers In Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, Northern California and 16,000 Western Electric employes in « states. But the remaining phone workers have refused to cross Western Electric picket lines ringing Bell exchanges across the nation. Lonj Strike Seen In New York, Ernest Weaver, a union director for the Western Electric walkout, reported after a mediation session yesterday that on the basis of progress to date, "we definitely will have a long strike." The union Is demanding: a 19 to 23 cent hourly raise and has turned down a company offer estimated at 1254 cents an hour. CWA members now make an average of si.53 hourly. As Intensified picketing led to scattered instances of violence, the company obtained temporary injunctions in some states to restrain picket' lines. The union ordered all pickets removed in at least one state—but announced plans to extend their lines in others today. Southern Bell secured orders forbidding picketing throughout Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi and portions of Tennessee and Louisiana. In Georgia, local CWA President W. H. Camp at Atlanta last night ordered removal of all picket lines in the state. He gave no explanation for the action, which he sivJ might be taken in other southern states on an Individual city basis. Pickets Ordered Up However, in Illinois pickets were ordered up at Chicago exchanges today. Picket lines also were extended In Northern California and in Oklahoma, Southwestern Bell employes Joined Western Electric pickets In eight cities. Union heads reported this meant the communications tleup would spread in the state today. Long- distance service was hit yesterday in Durham. Greensboro and Salisbury, NC., with only death messages and emergency calls accepted. Ten downstate Illinois cities also were cut to emergency long distance service yesterday when the CWA set UD picket lines. Latest reported disturbance in the strike was at Oakland, Calif., where 200 pairs of telephone wires were cut, knocking out service to at least 200 customers. Violent Civil War Seen Raging in Bolivia Area BUEN08 AIRES m—Victor Paz Hstenssoro, *xiled leader ot the Bolivian National Revolutionary Party (MNR), today interpreted th» blackout nl news from Bolivia as evidenc* a violent civil war 1« in progress. Both Paz Estenssoro and the Bolivian Embassy lacked any direct word from La Paz, which has been cut off from the rest of the world more than 30 hours. Roundabout reports Indicated the military government of Gen, Hugo Ballivan was defeating the rebel forces supported by the MNR. The Bolivian Embassy got word that 200 persons have been killed In flgbiing still going on yesterday. This information originated with the Chilean ambassador Inn La Paz and was relayed by way of Santiago. Fight May Be Long "The fight may last long if the army persists in trying to stamp out the will of the people," Paz Estenssoro told reporters. The revolution broke out at dawn Wednesday and the rebels announced they are in control of the government. Paz Estenssoro had planned to leave for La Paz. Later reports said the rebels were being defeated. Airlines were not booking any flights for La Paz. 'In Santiago, the newspaper La Nacion, which often reflects government opinion, said the revolt could be attributed to economic misery caused In part by United States refusal to pay an equitable price for tin. Bolivia ranks third in world tin production and tin is m Its chief source of revenue. Nn Tin Shipped Because of failure to reach an agreement with the Reconstruction Finance Corporation on tin prices, Bolivia has shipped no tin to the U.S. since early last year. Tass, the Soviet news agency, told Russians that "U.S. monopolists" were to blame for the revolt. Tass said the monopolists had failed to impose their price for tin on Bolivia. The rebels had announced they had taken over the government without bloodshed. German Government Refuses Ban on Visas in Army Squabble BONN, Germany (If}— The West German government refused today to help the U. S. Army come between its soldiers rating and their wives.

The Army asked the German government to stop the visas or not to extend those now in force when they expire after 90 days. The Germans took the stand thajfc this was entirely nn American problem. German officials said Ihey welcomed tourists ns a source of foreign exchange and that soldiers' families would get the same courtesies as any other tourist. Now the Army must take the problem directly to the soldiers All who have their families here as tourists have been ordered to report their arrival and register their addresses in Germany.
