ALfON Steel Outlook Better tty SAM DAUfiON AP BiulnoM News Analyst NEW VOittUAP) -The steel Industry is Starting to recover from the strike that never was. Orders are a bit higher than in previous weeks when customers were living off stocks built up while unions and management were negotiating a new labor pact &< production has turned up, too, fof-the first real gain since May. And confidence la growing that tills summer's slump will prove to have been exceptionally mild. Part of the credit goes to the general gain in Industrial, activity. Pnrloy» But part also goes to the man- ncr in which the labor parleys were conducted this year,, The threat of a strike was less pressing this time than In previous years. Therefore, customers built up stocks at a less urgent pace. Labor contract years traditionally put the steel industry through a fever and chills cycle. First, the customers over-order as a hedge against a possible strike and the mills work feverishly. Then, if there's a strike, much of the economy is thrown out of joint. If there's a settlement, steel users live off their out-size inventories, and the mills arc chilled by few orders and 11 (tie output. This happened in 1962. The pattern was different in 1963. The pattern—now being tried or considered in other industries —was to keep a negotiating committee working more or less around the calendar on points of differences as they arose. The aim was not only to make a strike less likely, but also lo bring the final critical negotiations to a head without working under the gun of a strike deadline threat. Rig Orders But while reports of progress were frequent, many steel users weren't taking any chances. They put in hedge .ijrders anyway. The . build-up in stocks wasn't as large as the year before. Still, there was a considerable let down in steel ordering and production ' this : summer. That, may be ending now. 'A number of mills report a pickup in new orders and .inquiries, looking toward a better fall,-; business. ,--,.. The American Iron and Steel Institute reports that last week the mills .poured 1,742,000 tons of steel, up ", 1.1 percent from ' the previous week,, and.; nicely ahead of the 1,611,000-ton output of the like week of 1962. With the exception of one. week in July, a fluke, this was the-first rise since'May. The metal working trade weekly, Iron Age, says earlier predictions : that fourth quarter , shipments would be about 16.5 million tons are now being jumped in some industry circles to as high as 18.5 million tons, , Brinks Driver Draws Jcdl Term For Stealing CHICAGO (AP) - A former Brinks, Inc., guard, who testified to a three-month spending spree during which he said he tried to be arrested for stealing $68,400 from a company truck, has been sentenced to six months in jail.
