(AP) — Union offi • cials ordered striking employes of the huge Gary Works of the U.S. Steel Corp. to return to their jobs this afternoon, apparently ending a 13-hour wildcat walkout. The brief strike, affecting 15,000 workers, had 'posed a possible threat to steel supplies to the nation's auto industry, now reaching a peak in its production of 1964 models. Company officials had begun a shutdown of the plant, listed as the world's second largest steel mill, before the walkout was or dered abandoned. Tlit strike stemmed from the suspension of a union grievance committee member after he allegedly struck a supervisor. Thomas R. Johnson Jr. ,,.31, of 3201 Edsall Ave., was left with its wheels cut into the curb but the brake was not set, according to police. Another minor accident occurred Saturday at 12:25 p.m. when a car driven by Donna i Lee Petro, 310 Allen St., struck hoso house replacement project could be started if the city received any windfalls during the present fiscal year that might be; applied to the project.

In Slain Dog Case... Man Pleads Innocent Collection of sewer services charges by Alton since the start of the present fiscal year, April 1, has averaged $34,000 a month. Vor the 5-month period, it was said today at the office of the city treasurer, receipts from the sewer use charge total $170,862. The August collection, completed last Friday, was $24,894, somewhat under the monthly average. Since collection of sewer service charges was begun In March of 1962, a grand total of $578,025 has been recei-'ed. During this period said City Comptroller H. B, Ramey, the delinquent accounts have been greatly reduced, and he is planning a report on delinquent collections, not yet complete, for the next meeting, of the city council. The city now has about 10,000 sewer service accounts, said the comptroller, and, in round figures, 9,000 apply to dwelling units, and 1,000 to commercial users. Current bills were mailed last Friday, said Ramey. Generally they are mailed further in advance of the opening of a n e w month but this was not possible in August. Users have 15 days in which to pay service charges, rendered quarterly, said Ramey, and the current Sept. 1 bills, do not become delinquent until Sept. 15. However, a great proportion of the sewer users make almost spot —! payment. Reflecting the big volume of immediate payments, City Treasurer M. 0. Elliott had a great stack of week end mail on his office desk this morning. It included i checks he normally would have received Monday except for the Labor day holiday. the new post office project. The city has tentatively asked $20,000 as compensation for the pending street vacation.
