(Courier News 1'holo) Officials Hope 'Seizure Of Steel Is Unnecessary WASHINGTON (^-Government officials striving for an end. to the crippling 47-day steel strike studied a new- seizure plan today but retained hope they would not have to use It. Top officials disclosed ,, V o new peace moves for the week end. They hsd some hope, however.* l| that a scheduled meeting of th •" CIO steelworkers Wage - Policy committee in Pittsburgh Monday might spur the industry to make a compromise on the sticky union shop question and agree to' a new contract before Monday. Philip Murray. CIO and sleel- v. f orkers president, was reported solidly backed by his lieutenants In his refusal to compromise further on the demand for a union shop—a form of compulsory unionism. One union source said the Wage- Policy Committee might ask Murray to retrace some ot the ground he has given up through compromise and take a new position even farther away from the in- diislry's stand. Industry Stands Firm The steel industry appeared to be just as firn,. In Chicago. Clarence B. Randall, president of Ihe Inland Sleel Company and a leading spokesman for the industry, said "strong public opinion" is urging his company "to stand fast and not sign a contract that will prevent a non - union man from working." . • The possible seizure of a portion o! the idle mills under the Selec- I live Service Act was reportedly y taken under active consideration after a White House Conference Thursday between UN Repels Reds, Opens Attack Morning Charge Carries Troops Near Enemy Posts SEOUL.

Rival slates from two Southern states—Texas and Mississippi whaled away at each other yesterday before the Credentials Committee of (he Dcmocralic National Committee. The subcommittee submits Us recommendations to the full committee loday. The decisions probably will be appealed eventually to the convention floor.
