Mr. Truman loid Ills top labor adviser, John R. Steelman, to get the union and railroad representatives into another conference. And Steelman promptly called them to a White House meeting. They will meet In .separate rooms, but Steelman hopes there will be some common ground to bring them together. residential Secretary Charles G. . Ross said Mr. Truman gave this Instruction to Steelman: "Keep on trying." So far the trying hasn't produced much results. Railroaders struck today in PitU- tirgh and Chicago despite * White House plea to stay on the' job. Like those called yesterday in Louisville. Cleveland and Minneapolis-St. Paul, these are 5-day token strikes. The idea is to call attention lo a wage-hour dispute that has dragged on for 17 months. , 50,000 Affected All the strikes are comparatively •mall, but they are In such key arjots union leaders have estimated they will pul 50.000 men out of work.

BLAKESI.EE Associated Press Science Editor j. -.2. (AP) the first big post-war alomic oven or ve may have—went info action here at tlie Brookhaven naliona Opening this reactor is one of the big events in atomic work, because of tlie oven's msuiy uses. Especially at this time, the research fits into not only peacetime science, but H-and other bombs and naval and aviation atomic engines. This reactor Is equipped better than anything else of Its kind to do research on the discoveries still ahead both in military and peacetime atomic progress. Other reactors Ixwe been built since the wnr, in Canada, England France and the United Slates, but none so powerful .as this one. At full power, this new reactor energy oulput in a few months equals the explosion of an atom bomb. The reactor slands on Ihe side of a sniid dime, just 75 miles from New York Cily. All ti ia t anyone is allowed to sec is a six-story, box- shaped, brick and concrete building, having iwo enormous windows, of green glass, 53 feet high by 33 wide. The reason for the queer windows has not been explained. Thick Walls 'Hie controls are set at llic side of a great, squat, square box of con- crelc. ils walls several feet thick, to shield against the rays ol the reactor which lies inside. The inner area of the box is 38 feet square. Here, filled closely inside, lies Ihe heart of atomic secrets, known as a pile, oven or reactor. It is square. It is made of 60.000 huge, graphite bricks, perforated to form a honeycomb. The honeycomb holes contain long, narrow aluminum cans, each tilled with metallic uranium. This Is ordinary uranium, containing both the non-explosive variety and the 235 whose splitting initiates all the alomic possibilities, from bombs to medicine. Although this great reactor carries the power of a bomb, il cannot explode, because the uranium In the graphite is too widely scattered. If the monster got out of control, it could after many hours get hot enough to melt Itself and Ils concrcle walls. To prevent lhat there are emergency controls lor slopping Ihis alomic fire almost instantly. One ot these is Ihe "scram." Pull down a handle on Ihe wall near Ihe console and lhat action clumps a big load of bom-slcel shot down Into the middle of Uw reactor. The boron quenches the neutron sparks immediately. The BrookJheven Natioual Lsbora- tory has a medical research mill already under way, and will have a special hospital for research. This reactor Is expected lo fur- nish some of Ihe answers needei for submarine and naval power, lo aviation, medicine, industry, chem istry, biology and metallurgy.

FAY AP Military Affair* Ktportfr WASHINGTON, Aug. 22. {If)— A Umled Nations decision to push its -wllc« icllon In Korea north of the 8th parallel may require more U S. unds than the »10,500.000,000 which 'resident Truman has asked. Secretary of Defense Johnson es- tmates that liie Korean fighting nay end about February. He predl- uted that guess, however, on a -impaign to push the Communist* ick only to their pre-war border Whether the U.N police action will stop at the 38lh parallel or shove in into North Korea In an effort, -o crush Ihe Communist nnny.pre- .umably has not been determined. High comtnand planning—at least t|i until late In July—was based on ill assumption that the war would lot be carried north of the 38th parallel. Johnson Optimisllc These estimates came lo light to- lay with release of testimony given >y military leaders last month before a House Appropriations Sub- :ommittee in behalf of Ihe President's request for new funds for military spending. Johnson's disclosure of the plans was given on July 25. 12 days alter President Truman was asked at a news conference If United Nations' police action In Korea would end at the 38lh parallel, which divides North and South Korea. The President replied that decision would be made when It became necessary Presumably It would be one In which the U.N. would take pail, As to Ihe time 'table, Johnson iid, in answer to another qucs- "The Korean situation, r hripe,.l.i a six or eight months' proposllion." Other testimony Indicated that the Korean fighting and the rcstilt- ng emphasis on bolstering defenses will give Ihe nation a strength of 17 army divisions, an Air Force of 69 groups nnd • fleet Including 23 carriers of various types.
