H f,-l\-- President Truman summoned western congressmen to the White Hov.se today for a series of talks in the wake of .Harold L. Ickes 'explosive exit from the cabinet. ' Executive aides were rather noncommittal but the speculation was that Mr. Truman — confronted With one of his touchiest political problems to date — was pursuing his quest for a successor to Ickes as secretary of the Interior. - House Speaker Kaybum (Text. Senator Wheeler. >Mont>. Hatch (NM), O'Mahoney l\Vyo>. and Thomas and iMurdock tUtahi all Democrats, were among lawmakers called for conferences with the Chief executive. O'Mahoney. among these mentioned as a possible new interior secretary, declined to talk after seeing the president, telling reporters: "There isn't any news." He added in response to a question {hat the cabinet vacancy "natural- Ix' 1 came up for discussion. --However, Hatch, chairman of the Senate Public Lands Committee, said after his call that he had discussed "several men" with Mr. Truman in connection with the .vacancy, adding: "The president is searching for the right man." " The New Mexico senator said he did not suggest a specific nomi- riee, but that he did advocate a ^esterner'familiar with reclamation, irrigation and other problems of the western states. He expressed the belief that Mr. Truman had not made a decision. 1 Legislators from the western t ales presumably would have a t to say about a new Interior apartment chief. The department .manages vast federal land holdings in that section of the country. «. White House Secretary Charles G. Ross was asked by reporters Whether all of the congressional engagements, dealth with "the ques- fion of finding a replacement for Ickes. He replied that he didn't think all of them did, but did not elaborate. * Ross .reported President Truman would not hold a news conference which had been set tentatively for today, but probably would meet newsmen at 4 p. m. tomorrow. Extension of Pearl Harbor Probe Asked Friday, February 15, 1946 .194o Brm^s OuTa Slew Kind of 'Suffragette 1 j Washington. Feb. 14 —(/P)— Sena- j tor Ferguson <R-Mich) said today :that "if nobody else does," he will ' seek extension of the congressional Pearl Harbor inquiry until June 30. The three-month old probe — al' ready once extended—is scheduled ' to end tomorrow unless the Senate and House vote more time for it. ' "We can't let this thing die," Ferguson told a reporter. : Another indication of a desire for Ian extension came from Senator 1 Lucas (D-I1D. ! "I can't see how the committee i can conclude this hearing without 'having some witnesses from Hawaii .\\e have been investigating Washington all this time, 1 ' Lucas commented at the hearing. Basic issues in the inquiry are ' whether Washington supplied Hawaii with sufficient information prior to Japan's attack on Pearl I Harbor. i The committee went ahead, meanwhile, with further examina- S tion of Henry C. Clausen, former | lieutenant colonel who made a stip- • plcmentalarv inquiry of the Dec. '7, 1941 disaster. ! Rep. Gearhart (R-Calif told Clausen that he thought "the , greatest mystery of Pearl Harbor" : was where Gen. George C. Mar; shall and Adm. Harold R. Stark were the night before the attack. : Both the former army chief of ' staff and chief of naval operations [have testified they do not remem- >ber their wereabouts that Saturday ; night. I Gearhart suggested that Clausen, i in his investigation, should have I j questioned orderlies and servants' ; to clear up the point. • | '. Clausen disagreed. He said that j ; would have been "attacking twigs, j ; and my job was attacking the I ' trunk, the roots." i Oul of 11,812 pages of Pearl Harbor testimony emerged at least ', one thing on which Republicans ; and Democrats agreed—a propos- , B | ant "Suffragettes" are campaigning for the vote again, and they're getlVnt: a lot mrre polite welcome than did those who put over the "votes-for-womcn" amendment to the Constitution in 11)II*.

H —l/1'i— The Japanese cabinet met in special session today to discuss application to mili- Inrists and government officials of the ultra-Nationalist purge which will reach thousands of persons. The chief cabinet secretary, Wain ru Narahashi, said an announcement is due soon on the government's interpretation of this part of General Mac-Arthur's Jan. -I directive. He is responsible for defining ultra-Nationalist activities which, under the directive, will disqualify political candidates and force the resignation of some government of- ticals of bureau chief rank and higher. A few days ago the government announced its interpretation of the directive applying to those involved in activities of wartime totalitarian political organizations Narahashi said today that all but about 30 members of the -Kid-scat house of representatives would be barred from campaigning. He said the government plans a purge of the House of Peers—affecting between 80 and 100 members. This subject dominated today's cabinet session, ho added, and denied speculation in the Japanese press that the meeting was called to consider anti-inflation measures. However, financial steps are prospective, Narahashi said. The purge of government officials will affect only one cabinet minister, instead of the three nrevi- ously reported by the press, he reported. The member affected is Ichi/.o Kobayashi. minister without portfolio and president of the reconstruction board, who will resign i soon because of past associations i with the defunct imperial rule assistance association. Narahashi said, however, that the . government hopes to retain Joji j Malsumolo, minister without port- i folio and head of the cabinet's con- I sliluliunal revision committee, and! jSankuro Ogasawara, minister of I commerce and industry. The press ! had speculated that bolh would re' sign. Blasts Argentina Describing the Argentine government as an "enemy regime" that is preparing for war, Rep.

M - (/I 1 )—Out of Ull'.'ino.iMO voles cast in the Soviet 'Union's elections last Sunday, only I,(j:)(l,(i54 were recorded against the Communist and non-parly bloc candidaUs, according to tabulations today. (With seats to bo filled in both the council of the union and the council of deputies, only one candidate was nominated for each posjtion.' Voters who wished to register opposition turned in blank ballots.) More than 3f!0,-100 votes were declared invalid. The largest percentage of vote.-; not marked for Communist and non-parly candidates was in the Baltic republics, ranging up lo O.fi-1 per cent in the voting on deputies for the council of nationalities in Ks- lonia. The republic with the highest percentage for the bloc for both councils, 99.82 per cent in the case of the council of nationalities, was the Georgian republic, the home of Generalissimo Stalin.

A few weeks ago, leaving Grand Central station with the rest of tho band. Al turned to Billy Strayhorn, the orchestra's arranger, and remarked that the engine must be a high-powered one. Billy hadn't noticed, but Al Hib- blcr notices every sound that's within his starllingly vivid car- shot. He had noted the quietly purring Diesel engine as he walked alongside the train. He likewise notices cars, auto horns, the way a person walks by the sound of his heel and Iqe touching the' pavc- mc'H alongside. Al thinks the greatest accomp- lisnment of being blind is tho manner in which he can't dare permit his first impressions to guide him in making friends. "1 know a lot of guys who make snap opinions about oilier fellows by the tilt of a hat, the color of a coat, the way he ties his lie. 1 have to wait and figure things by my other sense — the warmth of a handshake, the sincerity in a voice, the tone of a laugh, the bitterness in a reply. Sometimes other folks form opinions before they even speak to each other.

He's, there because he's a very good swing band vocalist and can sing a ballad with the best in his line. The men in the band don't treat him any differently than they treat each other. There's no attempt to coddle or sympathise. Al wouldn't have it otherwise. Tin- only time when the Duke ::huws any difference is when Al walks out on a stage lo sing. Then the Duke guides him in the most nn- obslrusive fashion possible.

By JAMES THRASHER , Fruits of Amiability -i During Mr. Truman's ten months as President, the American people have comedo know him rather well. He has revealed himself to them as a straight-forward, amiable, unaffected man, eager for national harmony, loyal to his friends, and desirous of pleasing as many of the people as possible. All these things are probably commendable in a public servant. But when that public servant occupies the White House in troubled limes like the present, those very '/irtucs may give rise to complica"- lions and confusion. Take, for example, the desire to please. That was undoubtedly a strong motive behind the administration's lifting of wartime controls of food, materials and production, and wages almost as soon as the shooting stopped. And it was a popular move with the people. But now we find ourselves sitting in the midst of plenty while Europe faces starvation. So, for .umanitarian as well as practical T'casons, we must return to a sort 'of informal food rationing which nught.jjccome formal .unless...thuuo in wholehearted public co-operation. Britain's new government, on the other hand, saw that controls would be necessary until the world had passed through the current period of chaos. It announced the continuation of "austerity Hying" almost as soon as it took office.

Dewey today called lop officials of General Molors Corp. and Ihe CIO united auto workers back into a huddle (9 v :i:m." CSTi, which, he predicted, •''could" end in a settlement of the UO-day GM strike. For the second straight day corporation representatives were headed by President C. E. Wilson and Ihe union delegation was led by President R. J. Thomas. Dewey said both had agreed to "sil through to the finish." Although the U. S. Sleel Corp. strike sctllemcnl was largely discounted by the special mediator as an important influence on the GM dispute, union leaders hailed it as V factor which would hasten an agreement. The steel settlement, Thomas said, "should mean that wage disputes in the industries dependent upon stcll should be settled more rapidly and will mean early full nivilian production and employment." Walter P. Reuthcr, UAW-CIO vice president and GM strike leader, declined comment but a union spokesman pointed lo Jfcuther's stalement of several days ago when -JHO said GM was "just dragging its left until the steel strike is settled. Thomas said he was "very glad that Philip Murray has been able. to settle the steel strike." He added, however, "it is very doubtful if our settlement with GM will com this week-end," because of a number of non-wage issues still to be worked out. Particular significance was al- lached by some observers to the fact thai for the first time since he entered the dispute two weeks ago Dwey plans to slay in Detroit <vcr the week-end. The mdiator biiid "night and day sssions — Sunday included" would be held if necessary. Thomas said there was "nothing to the report" that the union would agree to an IB 1-V cents an hour (Hi.5 per centi increase for the 175,000 striking GM workers, providing other issues were ironed out satisfactorily, flic UAW turned down such a GM offer Tuesday, demanding at leasl 1U 1-2 cents (17.5 per ccnli as recommended by a presidential fact-finding board. obe of Pearl Harbor By JOHN t.

Homer Ferguson, R., Mich?, said Schul/.' testimony makes it imperative that the committee lioar Rear Adm. J. B. Beardall, Lhe naval aide. Ferguson said T-leardnll should tell when Mr. Roosevell received Ihe final 14th part of the Japanese message and what stps were taken to avert the ivar in those final hours. The first 13 parts of the Japa- icse note were intercepted and decoded by the navy during the afternoon and evening of Dec. C, 1941. Schul/. said he delivered a locked pouch containing the highly «ccret Japanese intercepts to the president's study that night. Mr. Roose- ve.ll and nis confidential adviser, thdr'ite Harry L. Hopkins, were alol ' --i the sludy when the officer was "dshered in. ..Schul/ didn't know what was in the, pouch but he unlocked it and hahcied the contents — about 15 pflges of typewriton mater — to the president .Capt. A. D. Kramer of navy inlelligenace has lestified the pouch contained the first 13 parts of the final Japanese diplomatic note. "The president read for 10 or 15 | minutes and then handed the papers to Mr. Hopkins," Schulz testi- Iied. Mr. Hopkins read them and handed them back lo the president. "The president turned to Mr. Hopkins and said, in substance, 'This means war'." Schulz said Hopkins agreed with the president and lamented the fact that the Uniled Stales couldn't strike the first blow to wrest the initiative from Japan. He said Mr. Roosevelt nodded agreement but declared that course was not open lo a peaceful democracy. Schulz said he heard nothing to indicate there might be an alack on Pearl Harbor or that war would come the nexl day. J 7,ZOQ Troops Due in U. S.

Polish Troops in Italy Irk the Russians By JOHN A. PARRIS London, Feb. Ifi —(/I 1 )— Soviet Russia today placed before the Uniled Nations Security Council the problem of Polish troops serving under British command in Italy, declaring lhal the presence of the Poles there was "a possible future threat to peace, calm and order on the Yugoslav frontier." Representing Yugoslavia, which is not a member of the 11-nalion council, Soviel Vice Commissar of Foreign Affairs Andrei Vishinsky filed with secrclary-general Trygvc Lie a memorandum from the Yugoslav government declaring that the activilies of Ihe Polish Army were "hostile" to Yugoslavia. The memorandum added that "extremely numerous propaganda publications issued by these units are aggressive and ostensibly threatening." Vishinsky asked that the document be passed on to all members of the Security Council. Attached to it was a letlor from Dr. Ales Bebler, Yugoslav deputy foreign min- isler, who said the charges contained "facts which are of considerable gravity." The charges followed yesterday's Polish note to Britain demanding immediate demobilization and return to Poland of the 107 000 Polish troops of Gen. Wladyslaw Anders' Second Corps in Italy and approximately 90,000 other Polish troops under British command The British foreign office said the Polish note was Brusque and that it was somewhat surprising to olficials who had thought that the four-month reparation talks with Poland were about to end successfully. Today's action by Russia follow- «i3lso a foreign, ofliE&.-spokes.- man s spcculalion that ''maybe" there was some connection between the Russian-supported Polish government's note and Russia's rebuff by the security council 011 complaints of British military activities in Greece and Indonesia. • The memorandum charged that Anders' Army had been moving closer lo Ihe Yugoslav frontier for several months, lhal il "has replaced all British units along the northern coast of the Adriatic" and lhal one detachment of about 700 Poles arrived in December at disputed Trieste, which Yugoslavia claims for Iluly. "Quite recently," the memorandum charged, "the Polish cmi- granls' Army in Ilaly inilialed ef- forls lo increase its contingents by embodying Yugoslavs who, having formed part of the Quisling troops, had fled to Italian territory." "The recruiting of these troops is conducted under the slogan 'fight against Communists in Yugoslavia'," it declared.

That is our summary of the position, having had a chance to look things over As 1 sal down to write this article I asked my distaff partner what her outstanding impression of Holland was, and got an unexpected reply . "It's that 1 have heard a lot of young folk singing in the streets," Mrs. Mack said, "and you see people smiling and even laughting everywhere. That's an astonishing IhinK lo find in a country which has suffered so much as Holland." Well, I guess she's right. The Dutch have been hurt so badly that it doesn't take much easement to make them happy. H's a good sign, too, for cheerUil courage is needed lo pull them through. Morale is lops in Holland, and il is getting better with thhe approach of spring. Its' Hearing tulip time in Harrlem and we've seen the growers working diligently and lovingly over their bulbs. The farmers, lo, are beginning lo turn the soil for the crops which mean so much to Holland this year. So far as material things go, the best indication is that there no longer is actual hunger in the country .That doesn't mean lhal there is anything like enough food, for {real scarcity of most rations arc terribly little fuel for any purpose. Coal, of course, is one of iho crying needs of all Europe. Holland's plight is strikingly illustrated by the fact thai the shortage of electricity forces the street cars to quit running at six o'clock in the evening and on Sundays they don't run al all. That isn't quite the whole story with the transportation problem, for the country is so short of equipment that it lias lo conserve what it has. The record of fuel shortage has been chiseled in crude and astonishing form on the face of Amsterdam. When the war started there were some 80,000 or more people living in the famous and pic- lui usque Jewish quarter. All these and scores of thousands in other parts of the country were carried off to Germany. Only about 20,000 of these persecuted folk have returned to Holland and most of the rest are presumed to be dead. Well, during the .last year of the German occupation with Hie Jewish quarter vacated and the rest of Amsterdam freezing, people tore down a large number of the old brick houses to get the wood finishing for fuel. They worked so methodically from the roofs down that nothing bul the bricks arc- left and there was no haphazard or wanton destruction. The shortage of fuel was coupled "'• " -'-•" : " clothing, for the country with a deficiency in Ihe Nazis stripped there is a things and _. , .^ light. Still, the starvation of a year inioney.

Pauley's qualifications to be navy undersecretary. ft was learned thai Pauley's friends have borrowed — and returned — the memoranda which retiring Secretary of Interior Harold L. Ickes submitted as evidence against Pauley. They explained they wanted to photostat it. The senators were uncertain why Pauley supporters would want the photostats unless they hoped to prove that the memoranda were writlen recently and therefore may have contained inaccuracies due to the lapse of time. Ickes did not make it clear when the memoranda were prepared. He, did say he wrote the notes from which they were prepared follow-, ing a scries of talks with Pauley dating back lo 1942. One said that- Pauley had made "the rawest proposition I ever heard." ' That was the one which said Pauley had told Ickes he could raise $300,000 from California oilmen for the Democratic campaign if the government would drop its suit to obtain federal title to oil- rich tidelands. Pauley has insisted that Ickes misinterpreted his remarks and had grabled some of the facts. Meanwhile, President Truman made it clear that he would not withdraw Pauley's nomination despite the blistering oposition of Ickes who returns to private life today, Moreover, the president said he expected the nomination to be confirmed despite indications to the contrary. Then lie said that both the late President Roosevelt and Secretary of Navy James Forrestal had favored the nomination. A few hours later Forrestal issued a statement backing up his chief's claim that Mr. .Roosevelt had favored Pauley. But he said his personal choice for the job because of his long navy experience was his assistant, H. Struve Hen- scl. But in view of the fact that he expected two vacancies in the department, Forrestal said he informed Mr. Truman at the Potsdam conference that "I would be agreeable to Mr. Pauley's coming to the Navy Department," The president did not close the matter by saying that he would continue to support Pauley. He added*that Ickes was guilty, ot-im- plied misreprcsbntaUbn. '' ' When he resigned Ickes said that Mr. Truman had refused to discuss the nomination with him. The president said this was not exactly true. Mrs. Truman said that the last lime he had discussed Pauley with Ickes, the interior secretary had said he thought very highly of the oilman. The president did not say when the conversation occurred but it was before Pauley's nomination. Reaction to the president's statement was mixed. Sen. Owen Brewsler, R., Me., said lie w<is -'sure the committee' would welcome any information bearing on Pauley's qualification even though it be apocryphal." "That," he added, "means of doubtful authority." Rep. D. R. McGohee, D., Miss., backed up Mr. Truman's decision not to withdraw Pauley's nomination. He said that Ickes never should have been placed in the cabinet in the first place. He remained there so long, McGehee said, that "the real American citizenship were beginning to despair of ever being relieved of this half-breed political mongrel."

(NEA Photo) Atomic Bomb information Said to Have Leaked Out to Russia by Way of Canadians By HARRY T. MONTGOMERY Ottawa, Feb. 10 — (fp>— The Canadian government moved swiftly today to plug a leak of "secret and confidential information" which an authoritative source said involved handing over atomic secrets to the Russians. The disclosure of the move came last night after the Royal Canadian Mounted Polidc, striking suddenly, had rounded up 2^ employes and former employes of Canadian departments and agencies. Prime Minister W. zie King announced ment of two L. th MacKen- appoint- commissioners to head a thorough investigation and promised the government would institute' prosecution "in cases in which the evidence warrants it." In his announcemenl. the prime minister mentioned neither atomic energy nor Russia, but authoritative sources, which cannot be named, said both were concerned. The investigation has been going on undercover since shortly after the war ended, informed quarters said, and the prime ministu'r was reported to have discusse" tlio leak with President Truman in Washington last fall during their talks on atomic energy. The atomic bomb was developed through the combined efforts of Uniled Suites. British and Canadian scientists, and therefore a number of Canadians are familiar with the atomic secrets. Some of the ~2'2 men rounded up by the police were known to have been »mployed by the National Research Council, government agency through which atomic energy information has been channeled. Officials s;ikl they were ccr- they could place serious charges against at least 11! of the men. Progressive Conservative Leader John Bracken, commending the government for its action, described the situation its one of "grave concern." The prime minister's statement, he said, "will come as a great surprise to the Canadian people." "From tho evidence the government apparently IKIS in its possession," lie added, "is to be commended for the action it luis taken lo get to the bottom of a situation which cannot help but be of grave concern to us all ;il this lime." Mackenzie King said that Mr. Justice Robert. Tasehereau and Mr. Justice R. L. Kellock of the Supreme Court of Canada had been plaeed in charge of tile investigation. Informed quai ler.s expressed Unbelief that the government would announce sunn the name of the foreign country involved so that the missions of other counrics might not be embarrassed. Available officials al the Soviet embassy said they did not wish to comment. Mackenzie King said some of Ihose concerned in the leakage Hollywood Politician Found Slain Hollywood, Feb. 16 —(UP) The nude body of William H. Bonsall, •IS, onetime Republican candidate for state assemblymen, was found sprawled in , the driveway of his luxurious home early today. He had been beaten to death. A six-foot pipe, smeared with blood, was found about 10 feet from the body. Bonsall's face and head were bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Police reported a trail of blood and overturned furniture in the 10-room home, indicating that the political leader had put up a fierce battle for his life. The fatal fight apparently started in a small sitting room, where Bon- sail's clothes were found draped over a chair, apparently preparatory to retiring for the night. A I blood-stained bathrobe lay on a fur rug. The radio was going full blast and a fire was smouldering in the fireplace. Two small tables had been broken. The trail of blood led to the dining room and then to the kitchen, where bloodstains were found on a water healer. There were other signs of a struggle in the study, and bloodstains on the window sill. .Bloodstains on the telephone in the study indicated Bonsall had attempted to summon help. Police theorized that he jumped out the window in a final desperate effort to escape. His unknown adversary followed him out onto the drive, and a neighbor told police he heard piercing screams and saw from his window "sumcone chasing a nude man around in the palio." Another neighbor, S. W. Weaver, said he called police when he heard the victim's cries of "help, police," but lhal Ihe slayer had fled by the lime he arrived. Bonsall was alive when police arrived, they said, bul died a few minutes later. Police said they found a sailor's uniform in one of the bedrooms and a navy cap and scarf in the parlor. Two beds in the house had been slept in.

Pugh, who as senior aide to General Jonathan Wainwright became an almost legendary figure of der- ring-do during the last days of Corregidor, has returned to "the Rock" to reclaim records which somehow survived a fire he himself had set deep within Malinta tunnel. Pugh, once described by Wainwright as "more like a son'," spent more than three years in Japanese prisons. He came here as a witness in the war crimes trial of Lt. Gen. Masuharu Homma, commander-in-chief of victorious Japanese forces in the Philippines, and with two other witnesses who survived Bataan's "death march," visited Corregidor to aid army historians now engaged in recording the struggle. His arrival followed by only a clay or two the discovery of charred records, some of them signed by Wainwright, others by .junior officers, in a lateral of Malinta tunnel. Pugh, amazed at the recovery, tpld LI .Col. Leroy Greene of Harrisburg, Pa., executive officer for a combat history unit, that he personally had carried the records there, ignited them and "watched until they were fairly well consumed." The blaze apparently died out, leaving some undamaged. The Japanese never disturbed the pile —and by curious turn of fate there the papers remained until crews were called to clean away the debris of a minor tunnel cave-in. Landing at bomb-marked Navy clock, Pugh and his party went through the tunnel to a spot on the old "marketplace," near the foot of Denver Hill where Wainwright handed his document of surrender to a Japanese colonel. Carefully, Pugh eyed the landscape, spotted again several familiar reference points. Briskly he stepped away to a location which lie said marked the northwest corner of the old marketplace. "It was right here," he remarked. For five hours Pugh led his party by jeep and uiooi, first to the surrender spot, then Denver Hill, then to "Topside," location of barracks, officers' quarters, the old parade round and a lighthouse There, in one corner of the parade ground, still stood the flagpole from which "Old Glory" was lowered — bent a little and unpainted, but still proud and white. Down the way, along officers' row. were the timbered ruins of house once occupied by Francis B. Sayre, the U. S. high commissioner, which he left to board a submarine for the United States just before "Ihe Rock" fell. Two overgrown and vacant lots away was the remains of General Mac-Arthur's home — but gone was any evidence of playground equipment which the general so happily provided his son. Arthur ' Colonel Pugh noted that, too, — and involuntarily eyed a plane which at the moment roared low over the hill "That's only one," he smiled grimly, "you ought to be glad there aren't 50."

WARD Washington, Feb. 16 —(/PJ—Final settlement of the troublesome tJ.S, steel strike today jarred the nation's stalled rec^ -v> ,-sion bandwagon back into .<; .ti-.i :gain. Administration u.,)tU;'T. were jubilant over the termination of the dispute, for they looked for a salutary reaction in the strike-bound automobile and electric manufacturing industries. "Big Steel," as U. S. Steel is known, has long been considered the bell-wether of American business and other enlerprises were expecled to follow, as in the past, the broad general pa'llern it set. The end of the ^5-day-old U. S. Steel strike was announced last night on behalf of President Truman by Reconversion Director John W. Snyder. The settlement was on the basis of an 18 1-2 cents average hourly wage increase previously recommended by the president, with the corporation getting a compensatory $5-a-ton increase m steel prices. The settlement applied only to approximately 130.UUO U. S. Steel employees, but it opened the way for the return to work of some 620,000 striking CIO stcelmen employed by other companies. CIO President Philip Murray announced that collective bargaining will begin with the rest of the industry today, and "another unquotable CIO official predicted that agreements would be reached with all the key steel companies by the middle of next week. It was made plain, however, that strikes would continue at all these companies until agreements have been signed. U. S. Steel meanwhile was reported already heating its furnaces, and some CIO men said the corporation would be ready to resume making steel by Tuesday, although full production probably will not be reached for two weeks. Officially the U. S. Steel strike will end at 12:01 a. m., Monday, Feb. 18 — the same hour to the minute that it began on Jan. 21. The settlement climaxed two weeks of secret negotiations in the U. S. Steel's suite at the Carlton. hotel, three blocks from the White House. Reports that the long battle was over circulated all day in the capital, but it was not until 10 p.m. that the awaited announcement came. "Gentlemen," Snyder told newsmen, "it gives me real pleasure on behalf of the president to announce settlement of the steel strike " - .;Snyde.r :was,.flanke,df-by-Secretary, of Labor Schwellenbach, Presidential Assistant John R. Steelman, together with company and union officials as he.broke the news at th hotel. . Vice President John A. Stephens, in charge of industrial relations for U. S. Steel, followed up with the announcement that work would be resumed Monday with no discrimination against any strikers for their activities in the stopage. The settlement agreemcnet was for a period of one-year, expiring r eb. la, 1947. US Steel's President Benjamin a . b airless said the wage increase will amoung to aproximately $32 per employe for each full month of work, and described the boost as the largest in the industry's history The full new pay rates will be effective Monday. On the retroactive pay issue, which stalled the agreement, at the lasl moment earlier this week, the corporation and union agreed to split the difference. • Workers will receive an average of 9 1-4 cents an ho"r increase for the period betweer r i and Jan 21, when the stri<-, : ;.,._-,in.

Prior to the' steel sellement, Chester Bowles indicated the public may have to pay more for consumer metal products as a result of the government's new wage- price policy.

Ihe Suffolk county grand jury returned a no bill on a charge of manslaughter by negligence —the charge to which Mrs. Carlan had pleaded innocent when arraigned in VChelsea district court Jan. 11 She had been free in $2,500 bail pending consideration of the case by the grand jury. An earlier murder charge had been changed to manslaughter at the suggestion of Chelsea police. Mrs. Carlan was arrested Dec. 14 shortly after police found the body of her 6-month-old baby Ronald hidden beneath Ihe drawer of a China closet in her tenement. The discovery of the body ended a 16-day kidnap hunt in which Mrs. Carlan had said the baby was stolen from his carriage outside her home. Later, police said she confessed that the child died Nov. 24 four days before she reported him missing and while she was in her mother-in-law's apartment attending a party. —o George M.
