Dock Tieups Spread in Britain LONDON (J) — Prime Minister Eden moved swiftly today toward emergency powers to safeguard the nation's prosperity boom against the nationwide railway strike and a crippling tieup on the docks. ■ He sent three top Cabinet ministers flying to Scotland to see Queen Elizabeth II and lay the groundwork for a royal proclamation giving the government the widespread powers. The declaration of a state of emergency by the Queen would give Eden a freer hand to deal with the crisis, including the power to requisition stocks of essential materials and to use troops and service facilities to move goods and carry workers to essential jobs. Lord Salisbury, one of Eden's fight-hand men and president of the Privy Council, led the three-man government delegation to Balmoral Castle, where the Queen is vacationing. 350 Laid Off The first industrial plant to feel the effects of the strike wa3 the South Durham Steel Co., which laid off 350 night shift workers with the announcement that mill would not reopen because of lacn or coal. - Two of Britain's biggest steel-producing firms— the United Steel Companies and Colville's - announced : they will be forced to close by the weekend unless the strike is settled. • There also was no sign of a peace move m the stevedores strike crippling four of the country's biggest ports. It is an out- and-out jurisdictional fight between the National Amalgamated Steve- lores and Dockers - Union and the giant General Transport and General Workers Union over bargaining recognition demanded by the Defy Leaders The 18,000 strikers, most of them members of the NASDU have de fied their leaders' orders to go back to work.

Hundreds of thousands of suburbanites who normally ride to work in trains converged on the city afoot or by automobiles. Long lines of tracks carrying goods ordinarily moved by rail added to the congestion. Special constables were called in to help deal with the expected 700,000 commercial vehicles and nrivate cars —four times the normal daily Meanwhile, thousands of Whit-sun t i d e holidaymakers were stranded overnight at bus' and railroad station awaiting transportation home from seaside resorts.

Refuse Increase The government, which operates the nationalized lines, has refused to grant the increase for fear of touching off a new wage-cost spiral in the railroad industry.
