Steel Firms Reject Union Freeze Idea NEW YORK (AP) — A union iroposal that steel prices be froz- n has been rejected by the na- ion's 12 largest steel companies The companies told the United Steelworkers of America'that "it would be completely unlawful for he steel companies to agree among themselves or with your union on the prices to be charged 'or steel products." The union contends a price 'reeze in the industry would noi violate federal antitrust laws. In a letter to Union Presidem David J. McDonald Wednesday .he companies also turned down a proposal that they increase wages and other benefits in a new contract on the basis of output per man-hour and profits. The companies, however, agreed to the union proposal that contract negotiations start May 4, instead of May 18 as scheduled. The letter told the union: "Our bargaining team is prepared to meet with yours at any time." The current contract, covering half a million workers in the industry, expires June 30. The 12 companies reiterated their proposal of April 10 that the Baby Found In Box On Lawn CHICAGO (AP)—April Dawn- time of freshness and beauty— vas the name given a bab; brought to the Community Hos pital in suburban Zion Wednesday That isn't her true name. Bu t was considered by nurses an lospital workers just right for th pretty baby girl who was foun ibandoned in a cardboard box o he front lawn of a Zion home. Cries from the box were hear by Beverly Smith, 31, as sh walked by the home of Mr. an Mrs. William Schmidt shortly af er dawn. She found the baby about two months old, shiverin nside a pink embroidered kimor. and three blankets. Temperature were in the 40s. The astonished Mrs. Smith too the foundling into the Schmidt' i • , . home and told them she found the y h baby in a box on their lawn. The Schmidts recalled they had seen the box when they returned home near midnight but thought someone had thrown it on the lawn. Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Schmidt warmed the baby and fed her formula left with her in the box.

McCain, William Shultz, Harley New Shoplifting Law Effective On July 1 TOPEKA (AP)—Shoplifters can circle July 1 on their calendars. That's the date a new anti- shoplifting law becomes effective n Kansas. For the first time the specific crime of shoplifting is being recognized on the statute books. It las been covered previously by general laws against larceny. The law provides that a merchant can detain a person in a reasonable manner and for a reasonable length of time if there are reasonable grounds for believing the individual was shoplifting. Meeting those tests of reasonableness shall, under the new law, constitute a defense against an action for assault, false arrest, false imprisonment, unlawful detention, defamation or slander resulting from detention for questioning, Some legal authorities say merchants have the same legal authority now. But they agree the new law probably will be important for its psychological effect. Many merchants contend they have been virtually unable to accost a suspected shoplifter because of fear of possible damage suits claiming false arrest. The new law, if it does not actually give the merchants added legal protection, may give them confidence to move on shoplifting suspects. And since the new law recognizes and spells out a definition of the specific offense of shoplift- ng, it could act as a psychological deterrent against the crime. Editors Urged To Help Mold Foreign Policy WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation's editors were urged today to help mold a nonpartisan foreign policy aimed at protecting 20th century revolutions from "the Communist scavengers." Sen. J. William Fulbright CD- Ark), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, made the appeal in an address to the American Society of Newspaper Editors on the first day of its annual meeting here. Fulbright told the editors this country's interests require that it do what it can "to protect the 20th century revolution in non-Communist Asia, in Africa, and in Latin America from the Communist scavengers. Our interests require that this revolution be given a chance to develop along constructive lines." To match Communist states which can fix and execute policy by simple decree, Fulbright said, millions of Americans will have to reach "some national decisions as to priorities" — to sacrifice some luxuries for long-range growth, to export more capital and import more goods. "We might even bring ourselves to put less steel into automobiles and more into school construction," he said. 'Until we revise our sense of values, we will never think we can afford to do the things which, in my judgment, we must do if we are to survive as a nation of free people. "The gravest crisis confronting the western world today is not in Berlin; it is within ourselves." The nearly 400 editors attending the three-day meeting will hear an address Friday by Fidel Castro, youthful prime minister of Cuba's revolutionary government. Protest Ike's Policy Of No New Dam Starts COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) —A protest against President Eisenhower's recommendation that no new projects be started in the Missouri River flood control and land reclamation program has been organized by governors and other officials in the river basin states. At • meeting here yesterday 30 members of the Missouri Hiver States Committee expressed oppo* sition to the President's economy move under which additional funds would be allotted only for current projects in the five-billion dollar basin program. This meeting was arranged by Republican Gov. John E. Davis of North Dakota, chairman of the states committee. In the interest of economy the President had left about a dozen Missouri basin projects out of his budgetary recommendations but proposed sizable amounts for some current basin projects. The states committee convened a day in advance of the meeting today of the Missouri Basin Inter Agency Committee here. The group decided to send a statement to the House Appropri ations Committee urging "contin ued orderly development," of the huge basin program launched in 1944. Those who met yesterday included three governors and the representatives of seven other governors in the basin states as well as Colorado and Wyoming. In addition to Davis two Democratic g o v e rnors attended, Herachel Loveless of Iowa and Ralph Herseth of South Dakota. The President had omitted from his budget reservoirs and flood control work in Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa as authorized by the Corps of Engineers, and Bureau of Reclamation projects in Kansas, Montana and Nebraska.
