The Independent Power Workers union in Pittsburgh rejected a Du- Quefiie Light Co. contract offer last night, refused to arbitrate and resumed picketing. Union President George L. Mueller said the company refused to change its offer which granted a five per cent wage increase and revised holiday and pension plans. Workers had been awarded an 18- cenl hourly boost earlier this year. Mueller said the company again iad suggested arbitration.

Washington, if pots., pans .torn? of cast .sold by mail many Democrats as well as Republicans, was not the only political overtone of Mr. Truman's declaration ".for sticking with ceilings. Even while the president's news conference was in progress, Mayor Kelly of Chicago was calling for a two-month moratorium on meat 5rico controls. Kelly is a mnmber of Democratic partys executive committee, which met here yesterday. Earlier, House Majority Leader McCormack of Massachusetts had- demanded that meat controls be lifted for CO days. On top of this, the parly's execu- live committee directed Domocra- tic Chairman Robert E. Hannegan to discuss with the price decontrol board "and any other ..proper authorities ways and means of increasing the meat supply available to the American people." Mr. Truman was informed of his resolution by a reporter who ;aid he regarded it as an instruction to seek Ihe removal of ceilings. When the president replied that no stood on his statement, the reporter asked whether Mr. Truman 'entirely out of lino," he said, because the union membership re- ecled arbitration a week ago. The c o m p any s generators, manned by supervisors and maintenance men, maintained power output at only 35 per cent of normal as the four-day strike tightened its grip on an 817-square milt- area and 1,500,000 persons. In Hollywood, the studio workers' jurisdictional strike completely halted production at M-G-M and Warner Eros, and hampered work at other major studios.

The fountios, and origin pickets at M-G-M and Warner Bros, studios yesterday after the union members Iried to slop non- strikers from crossing their pickel lines. The union had placed pickets n front of all major studios. Five pickets were arrested after they stopped a carload of non- ituKers who tried to crash their lines and tort- loose the automobile'., ignition wires. Dozens of fights broke out before police arrived. The dispute arose when 1,500 carpenters and painters were discharged for refusing to work on sets constructed by members of rival union. Meanwhile, there appeared litlle hope of a permanent waterfront and maritime peace, despite :"ina. settlement of the 13-day seamen's strike Wednesday. The International Longshore jnon's and Warehousemen's Unioi (CIOi threatened to strike unless disagreed with Hannegan. Waving the paper from which he had been reading, the president said the facts were in there and that if Hannegan differs with them, then Ihe Iwo men did not agree. Later Hannegan told newsmen, there is no disagreement between aim and the president, that he is -lot working for meat decontrol. The parly resolution .stabbed at ihe GOP, contending that the meat shortage "has resulted ".from the 'olind opposition of Republican members of congress to adequate control measures." In discussing the meat situation, Mr. Truman stressed that he knew :iis subject, since he is from the meal-producing slalc of Missouri, r Association.

Then, assert- ng thai present ceilings are "fair and equitable,' he added: An increase in prices or the abandonment of price control on moat now would, in the long run, add to rather than solve our difficulties.' In offering his own views, the president said he had been "disturbed' by the comments on the meat shortage. Ho noted that in July and August when meal was ceiling-free there was plenty of it, but that noyy "there is price control and meat is short.' He added that while it was natural for people to blame the short- aye on controls, "this line of reasoning is wholly wrong." "Tho fact is, the president con« Continued on l j aae T\yo
