"How do we finally win such a war? "Do we ultimately march to Moscow as Napoleon and Hitler attempted to do? "How effectively can our air force and atom bomb destrov the aggressive power of Russia?" Contending that the peopls are "in the dark," Talt said "until \ve determine these questions it is very difficult to know hon larse our armed forces ought to be." SPIRITUAL AID— Sgt.

In iheir riiflerent ways made it clear today they won't volunteer any immediate no-strike pledge. APL President William Green came closest lo giving such a promise. He said the AFL was ready to call off strikes— ns it did In World War II— if President Truman asks it. But he added, the President hadn't yet made such a request. CIO President Philip Murray said talk of such a pledge was "premature." He has crucial negotiations coining up in November or earlier with the entire steel Industry, and will be lo strike under his United Steelworkcrs' contract after Dec. 31. Yesterday he said it was "reasonable to assume" he'd be asking for wage increases for his nearly 1,- Wi.OOO steel industry members. Like Green, the CIO chiertain agreed to .forego wartime strikes when nskcd to do so by President Hooscvell alter 'the Pearl Harbor The exception then was John L. Lewis, leader of the United Mine Worker:, who refused to be boimd by the White I'.ouse pledge or the rulings of the war labor board created to process disputes. The mlneis struck several ir, ;5-i3 tor u derground travel pay. Lewis hinted he might be an exception again. Yesterday he told Given In a "memo" that if the AFL leader was "plodding about the country seeking someone" lo sive the pledge lo. he wasn't spc.ikin^ for Lewis' coal miners. In a caustically-worded message. the United Mine Workers leader poked under Green's skin by saying: "We do our own cooking ... we do our own committing. ... we do our own no-striking."

Acheson also said the United Slates by word and deed is doing Us utmost to discourage the Chinese Communists from becoming Involved In Ihe Korean fighting.
