He ordered John R. Steelman, presidential assistant to get representatives of the railroads and unions Wether in another attempt lo reach an agreement. Charles G. Ross, presidential secretary, said Mr. Truman then will review the situation again before deciding what to do next. "If this fails." a reporter asked, "isn't seizure the last resort?" "You will have to draw your own conclusions," Rass said. Tlie President, Ross said, directed Stcelman to make "further efforts this afternoon to bring the contending parties together to seek BJI agreement." |jfcThe country-wide dispute is over flpiges and hours. Today's strikes 'were called for five days. Trainmen said the Idea is to call attention to the fact that the dispute has dragged on for almost a year and a half without a decision. Here is where the men went out: In Louisville—250 switchmen on the Kentucky and Indiana terminal railroad left their jobs. All ot the road's 1,200 employes were Idled. A union official said the walkout was 100 per cenl effective. In St. Paul -175 employes of the Minnesota Transfer Railway Company failed to report for Ihe 6:30 ».m. shift The road handles most of the switching of freight cars in and throughout Minneapolis anrt St. Paul.

Mr. Truman met an Associated Press reporter at the Blair House. His comment on the rail strike: "As soon us i know- what the circumstances are. I'll tell you wliat I'm going to do." Bben Ayers. assistant White House press secretary, told reporters -there are no plans for seizure at this time." The trainmen and conductors, asking for R 40-hour week without '° Ss ln 'he present 48-hour pay sisted that the President take over the nation's major lines under an act of 1Q16. The strike is scheduled lo spread tomorrow lo two steel and coal hauling short line railroads. Both conductors and trainmen are clue to walk out on the Elgin, Joliet and Eastern Railroad, Chicago, and the Pittsburgh and Uike After that, the strike may spread to a major line if the dispute is not settled, a union spokesman said. Alternatives If President Truman decides not lo take over the lines, he could take these peace steps-. 1. Call in (He parties with a personal appeal lor them to get the long dispute settled. 2.

Korea Furnishes Lie .Material Russia, for reasons of her own, may conclude Ihe time to move isn't now but later when her military strength Is even greater, meanwhile using Ihe Korean situation as material for her peculiar propaganda technique. Some officials at high level In Washington incline to the belief that Russia doesn't wain to provoke a world war until later, when she is fully prepared. The timetable they use in these guesses varies considerably—from two to live years. The Soviets. have an Immense wood P army—some estimates range around wenslev 4.000,000—which is equipped, with ' ' superior tanks snd excellent artillery. They have a. large lac- lical air force (or support of the ground army. But the Russians may want more time lo improve and augment weapons in the highly technical category. Another [wo or three years may be needed for them'to stockpile a larger number of atomic bombs. They have the beginning of * long range bomber force- lor delivery of the bombs, but may need considerably more long range bombardment aviation. They have begun a hugs' expansion of their submarine fleet. Although the Russian 'undersea fleet may number as many as 300 submarines, only a small portion of that fleet Is believed to be of the modern high speed type, equipped with snorkels for long underwater cruises. • Iiifrirnulion Unreliable These estimates and hopes that Russia may not be ready for war are predicted on "evaluations" made by the military-political intelligence system.

One high olticia! privately rates American intelligence as improving but not yet good. However, 11 is to be assumed that considerable in information picked up by the intelligence services of other north Atlantic nations is pooled with ours in arriving at evaluations of Russian capabilities and Intentions. On the other hand, the already efficient operations of Russian counter - intelligence behind the Iron Curtain appear to have been greatly increased during the last few- years of east-wesl tension. There are reasons lo bcllcv-c the Soviets arc locating and liquidating more and more sources of intelligence within Russia and the satellite nations, thinning Ihe already slim Irlckle of Information from ihose countrits.

MacBeth said 11 was possible the Red seventh infantry division had been rushed to reinforce the sixth for an Impending stab at Pman. MacBelh said other pilots reported a similar buildup in the east where two south Korean diHsions pushed northward of the Kigyc-Pohang line In a continuing bloody offensive that cost the Reds heavily. These developments came after weekend amphibious landings of allied South Korean Marines on the South Korean coast, southeast of Chinu. and on Yonghun? Island, southwest of Inchon, port for Seoul. General MacArthur warned North Korean Premier Kim 11 Sung that he would hold Kim personally responsible for any more atrocities such as the massacre of more than 30 American troops last week by UM North Korean*.
