BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER Of NOETHEA3T ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOTTRI TML XLYHI—NO. 22, Blytheville Courier Blytheville Dally New* Mississippi Valley Leader Blytheville Herald BIA'THEVII.LE, ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 1952 FOURTEEN PAGES SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS Truman Set to Grant Steel Wage Boost Industrial Leaders Lay Battle Plans WASHINGTON (Al>) The Truman administration today prepared to go over the head of the seized steel industry and give a wage boost to Philip Murray's CIO steelworkevs. Whatever the terms may be. the steel industry was ready lo light back. Its attorneys had papers already drawn seeding a court order to restrain any payment of increased wages out of industry funds. More tllan 100 of the country's leading industrialists stand behind the steel companies in a fight to the finish. They, or their representatives, pledged all-out co-operation at a meeting yesterday, called jointly by the National Association of Manufacturers nnd the U. S. Chamber of Commerce. "Mr. Truman's action imposes iti upoiV Congress and the courts," the \* industrialists said in a statement, "the necessity of undoing his seizure of the steel mills, a step which places the freedom of every American in jeopardy." Meantime, Price Stabilizer Ellis Arnall had two scheduled appearances today to argue for the administration's stand that the steel industry is entitled to no more than a S3-a-lon price hoost tinder Btublllzallon rules. Arnall Due For Talks Arnall was due to talk to the \ National Press Club and later he [ goes before the Senate Labor Committee. Government - sponsored negotiations between the steel industry ( and Murray's union collapsed last night, with Secretary of Commerce JSawyer, boss of the steel Industry under Truman's seizure, saying the time had come for the government to deal directly with the union. "I shall proceed promptly but not precipitately to consider the terms and conditions of employment as 1 was instructed to do," M Sawyer said last night,. The question therefore was not whether the government would . deal directly with the union, but what the government wouli/glraat In the way of pay incre; other benefits. No indus deal aeemed possible.

The walls were originally built for a 26.6 crest.

Tiiis has been one of the most bitterly debated issues of the steel dispute. The WSB never recommended k the full union shop, merely saying the companies and union should negotiate a "form" of the union shop. Extra Sunday Pay The WSB also recommended extra Sunday pay for workers effective next Jan. 1. Any government deal with Murray could sidestep this issue for the present. The administration's idea was that .it might avoid incurring government financial liability under the seizure if it confined any wage Increase to what the industry hat! offered in collective bargaining. But the industry was prepared to contest that as an invasion of its properly rights. Industry attorneys said privately that if the administration gave Murray more than the industry had offered in bargaining — the full wage board "package" including the union shop, for instance—they might be better able to demonstrate "damage" under seizure. .lob Begins June 1 in Omaha.

Gen. Lewis A. Pick, chief of he Army Engineers, thinks there's a. good chance the Missouri can man-handled here. If it can't hen the river hns scored its ilggest victory—for every effort las been made here to stop the uaraudcr. -, Not only does the general, who drew these plans against the river vhcn he was Missouri Basin engineer, think the river can be con- ained in this metropolitan area. But he believes it can be slopped 'rom mauling man's homes and ands on southward. Drawing heavily upon the Fifth Army manpower to reinforce the .osts of civilians who answered the] call of need, the engineers chief | says ho believes the federally con-1 structcd works will hold ' everywhere in Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas as the river pours onward. Gen, Pick sees victory within reach provided there is no sudden "blow out" of any wall or levee or an unexpected downpour of rain. Land Handed Trouncing: Upstream, the Missouri has handed the iancl a terrific trouncing, although the loss of life has been at a very minimum.

Union Representative Floyd Taylor of Little Rock said an agreement had been reached whereby supervisory employes of the telephone company would be removed from the switchboards. The walk-out of SWB employes was ordered Sunday in connection with a strike by Western Electric equipment installers. Both SWB and WE employes are members of the same union. Union spokesmen said that operators honoring the striking installers picket lines were "locket out and suspended", when they re turned to duty, by supervisors tak- their places at the switch boards. Taylor said last night's agreement had no connection with the striking WE employes' dispute.
