(NBA Telcphoto) McDonald Bid to Steel Leaders for a Meeting WASHINGTON (AP) — Steelworkers Union President David J. McDonald today invited heads of the four biggest steel companies to meet with him,.immediately to hammer out a settlement of the 91-day strike. The invitation—McDonald called it a "challenge"—was issued during his testimony to President Eisenhower's fact - finding board which will advise the President on Friday whether the strike is a national emergency justifying a Taft-Hartley injunction to open the mills for an 80-day cooling off period. McDonald told the board the union has. been trying since April to get direct negotiations with chief executive officers of the major steel companies. He said those officers always participated in bar- ;aining in past disputes. "I personally would like to sit down with these men of responsibility — primarily Roger Blough, A. B. Homer, Avery Adams and liarles White —and really talk out the issues in an attempt to settle the dispute," McDonald said. "Let us go to work, while this Doard proceeds with its fact-finding investigation," he said. "I challenge these men to appear. "The chief executive officers of ;he steel companies are the responsible people and the decision is ;heirs. I would like to meet with them right now. 1 Blough is board chairman of U.S. Steel. Homer heads Bethle- icm, White heads Republic, and Adams heads Jones & Laughlin Steel Co. Union negotiators have talked with the steel companies coordi- lating committee. The committee •epresents 12 major companies, and is headed by R. Conrad Cooper as chief negotiator. Cooper is ;xecutive vice president of U. S. Steel. McDonald's challenge came after George W. Taylor, chairman of he fact-finding board, told union vitnesses that the board could not consider the direct issue of wheth- >.r the Taft-Hartley law would be a proper remedy for the steel crisis. Taylor told McDonald and the union counsel, Arthur J. Goldberg, that "your failure, and the ailure of the companies, to settle ;his dispute presents a 1 serious problem for the country." 'The issue raised by the failure of collective bargaining in this case is a far greater issue than the issues which remain unsettled between you and the steel companies," Taylor continued. McDonald interjected that the union has been trying to achieve settlement since April 10, but has not been able to bargain directly with those in the industry who have decision-making power. "I challenge these getlemen to appear, sit down with us and do the job," he declared. The union leader contends the paramount issue in the strike is whether the companies will break the union but the union will not be beaten." McDonald said his half-million Steel See Page 9 Ak Show Baby Beef Champion Shot and Killed OMAHA (AP) — Somebody shot and killed the Ak-SaV-Ben champion baby beef which restaurant owner Ross Lorello bought for a record $4,709.24.

This drop was expected because of the return of temporarily employed students to school. Unemployment fell by 196,000 to 3,230,000—also primarily due to .he job seeking youngsters leaving the labor market to resume classes. The idle figure—being still over Jiree million—raised the prospect that Secretary of Labor James P. Mitchell may have to eat his hat on the Labor Department building steps. Mitchell has pledged to do just hat if the October idle figure was above three million. Seymour Wolfbein, deputy assistant secretary of labor said ;hat witli the steel strike still con- .inuing the unemployment total '.01 October probably will exceed three million. CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.

(AP) — The light plan for the first Mercury manned satellite was made public at this space capital today. It calls for the Mercury capsule o zoom three times around the arth at an altitude of 100 miles iiid land in the Atlantic off the Bahama Islands not far from the Cape Canaveral, Fla., launching ite. The whole trip would take a hours. Hurtling along at 18,000 miles 11 hour most of the way, the atellite would cross South Africa, Australia and a narrow southern trip of the United States. As outlined here at the research center of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and confirmed by one of the sevne Mercury astronauts, the detailed flight plan is this: 1. A launching slightly north of east from Cape Canaveral. 2. An initial orbit — first encirclement of the earth — that would cross the North Atlantic, the Canary Islands, Spanish West Africa and Algeria, the main part of Africa just north of Lake Chad and Lake Victoria, Kenya, Australia south of in the west and south of Brisbane in the east, Fiji Islands, Somoa, southern tip of Baja California, Northern Mexico, Texas south of Austin and north of Houston, north of New Orleans and leaving the U.S. East Coast south of Charleston, S.C. leaving the U.S. East Coast at Savannah, Ga. 4.

(AP) — President Eisenhower returned to his old home town today with a nostalgic look at the past and a warning for the potentially explosive world of the future. "The world must learn to work together," Eisenhower said, "or finally it will not work at all." This was a sort of pre-birthday party for the President. He will be 69 Wednesday. And today he came back to Abilene, the town in which he grew up, to take part in ground Lambert J. Mchl 14th Annual Luther Event Here Oct. 25 The 14th annual Luther Day observance of the Carroll circuit of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod will be held in the Carroll High School auditorium Sunday, Oct. 25. Several hundred persons are expected to attend. Featured speaker of the public service at 2:30 p.m will be the Rev. Lambert J. Mehl, president of St. Paul's College, Concordia, Mo. The event will include choral singing by a choir of Sunday School children and adults in the Carroll circuit. Included are congregations from Auburn, Audubon (2), Arcadia, Manning, Lidderdale, Carroll, Coon Rapids, Glidden and Lake City. breaking ceremonies for the Eisenhower Presidential library. This will be the final resting place for Eisenhower's military and presidential papers. In his prepared remarks, the President began with a look at Ihe early life and times of Dwight D. Eisenhower. "We did not then know the term 'world tensions,' " he said. "Life was peaceful, serene, happy!" Tremendous Growth Today, the President said, the entire world is showing tremendous growth. "Burdensome surpluses—even those of wheat—will disappear," he told an audience very conscious of wheat surpluses. "Indeed the world may then be threatened with very real deficits —in food, energy, minerals. Enlarged demand throughout the world wijll have to be met by new methods, and more effective use of resources everywhere." And when would this problem come? "Within the lifetime of many ol you here, the global population will reach five billion," Eisenhow er said. "You must now help de termine how such a vast humanity may, in freedom, achieve stupendous increases in economic output, and increase the sum of human happiness on this earth. "The task ahead is not for the faint-hearted." President Optimistic But Eisenhower was optimistic, even while he was adding up the problems the world must face. "You of faith know that man's constructive desire to create and build can triumph over any compulsion to destroy," he said. "You know that the free nations of the world have the capacity and can develop the will to overcome together the powerful, perplexing forces which for thousands of years have yielded hatred, distrust, poverty. "Everywhere, knowledge and ideas, spread by modern communications, are routing centuries of ignorance and superstition. Peo- Ike '. .'. . See Page 9 Guidance Ch/>ck No attempt was made to intercept or knock down the satellite, 1/ut only to pass near it in order to check the accuracy of the guidance system. The missile was built by thc Martin Co. as part of an Air Force contract to demonstrate the feasibility of firing ballistic missiles from aircraft. The B47 fired the two-stage, 37- foot missile from beneath its wing while flying a few miles southeast of the Cape at an altitude of 35,000 feet. At the moment of launch, the Paddle Wheel satellite was traveling north of here at its maximum speed of 26,000 miles an hour, at a height of about 160 miles, the low point on its highly elliptical orbit. 10 Miles In Front The missile was supposed to pass about 10 miles in front of Explorer VI. Since the exact- orbital position of the satellite was known, an accurate measurement of the miss distance k possible. Pupils Honor Msgr.
