This was ninth visit to the United States since the first daiic days of World War II. Churchill, 84 and ailing, paused at the ramp as he boarded the plane, and delivered a brief message. Then he waved his black homburg at the crowd of several hundred gathered to see him off. Churchill spent seven days in New York and Washington. Here he stayed with an old friend, financier Bernard Baruch, four years hiS senior. In Washington Churchill visited with President Eisenhower.

For the United States to join, Eisenhower said be a most significant step in the history of our economic relations with our Latin-American Establishment of the billion-dollar bank was recommended by representatives of the 21 American republics after a three-month conference here starting last Jan. 8 The participating nations would provide the capital. The United States would invest 450 million dollars. The Latin- American republics would put up the rest.

Andrew H. Berding, assistant U.S. secretary of state, said he did not expect the formal opening ceremonies before Tuesday. The Western powers, regarding East Germany as a Soviet satellite, opposed the Soviet demand that the regime have the right of full participation in the Big Four sessions. The West offered, however, to work out some compromise arrangement to give delegations from both East Germany West Germany the right to speak under certain conditions. A British delegation spokesman said the informal meeting was arranged during a brief discussion between British Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko. The two had met in a futile effort to settle the dispute. The spokesman said Lloyd and Gromyko decided that as things stand now there was no chance of the formal conference beginning on schedule and they agreed to postpone it. The spokesman insisted that despite the postponement of the formal opening session, the confer- ience actually has started. are in the middle of one of the fundamental issues which we expected the Geneva conference would have to said one high official.

Industry-Wide Talks USW Stress Due On Shorter Week NEW YORK (AP) wide steel negotiations open today with the Steelworkers Union expected to demand shorter hours and more pay. Four-man industry and union teams will attempt to agree on a new contract in time to prevent a strike by a half million steelworkers July 1. The industry-wide talks replace the dozen company sessions held with the union last week. David J. McDonald, president of the Steelworkers, said Sunday that unemployment is one of the most important issues. He said he wants employment security to be the first item on the agenda. view is that the way to achieve this desirable he said, a balanced program of reducing hours, inoreasing purchasing power by improved and other benefits, and appropriate revisions in our This was the first official indication that shorter hours would be sought. Previously the union had indicated only that it would ask for substantial wage increases. A published report that the Steelworkers had demanded an Furtlier Improvement Due In U.S. Job Picture WASHINGTON (AP) A new government report on the Ijob situation today is expected to show a booming business is pro- I viding more and more jobs to ease immediate average work week of 38 hours at the present 40-hour wage level was denied by R. Conrad Cooper, chief negotiator for management. Cooper, a vice president of U.S. Steel, said he knew nothing of such a demand. The preliminary talks last week were described as constructive by both sides, who pledged to work hard to reach agreement in the seven weeks before the old contract expires on June 30. Both sides were clearly poles apart. Last week industry again proposed an extension of present contracts for one year to prevent another wage-price spiral. The union again rejected it. Cooper said increased steel labor costs would be inflationary, whether requiring price increases or not. Steel profits are running at a record level and this, coupled productivity, McDonhld said, means that substantial wage increases can be allowed without either raising prices or restricting profits. Wages in the basic steel industry now average $3.03 an hour. Served Here Untii 1951 W. G. Fordyce Qaimed; Former City School Head Dr. W. G.

Ohio Leaders Seek Answer To Tax Tangle Legi'blators Move Into 19tb Week Of Present Session COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) A snarl of administration bills to taxes confronts Ohio legislators starting their 19th week of work today. Leaders of the Democratic Majority were basy over the weekend seeking a solution to the tangle building up in the Senate for several weeks. The House has passed measures to increase taxes on cigarettes, 3.2 beer, gasoline, diesel fuel, horse race betting and corporations. Representatives also expect to pass within two weeks Gov. Michael V. $1,808,496,000 budget biH to run the state for the next two years. The Senate has yet to bring any of the House-passed measures to a vote on the floor. And, in addition, the Senate Taxation Committee continues to sit on a key measure in the program to raise an extra 365 million dollars for his outlined state needs. That measure is the own bill to increase sales taxes about 120 million dollars in the next two years. Opposition Democrat committee members has left the biU one vote short of the six needed to recommend it for passage. Objections center on sections to lift tax exemptions on farm and factory machinery and to do away with the tax stamps redeemed by church, charitabls and other organizations. DiSalle remains adamant against cuts in his program and warns that he will not appropriations until he knows tha fate of his revenue-raising meat- ures. Leaders of the Democrat Majority in the Legislature expresa concern over the situation but insist it has not yet become serious. They agree that a prolonged deadlock might expose tax-incraasa proposals to defeat or major ra- vision. They cautiously predict turning point within a wedr or two.
