FIVI CENTS Says If Steel Meets Wage Hike On Present Price, Taxes To Fall Fairless Tells His Story At Board Hearing Cites Threat To Federal Income If Policy Followed N e w Y o r k-(/T)-Benjamin F. Fairless said tod«y his United States Steel Corporation could meet wage demands and hold its present prices--but this would result in a 60 per cent reduction in its federal income tax payments. Fairless asserted such a wage increase, if r.lluwed to spread throughout American industry, could result in a net loss to the government "conservatively estimated at H billion dollars." He said the ultimate "cost of a wase increase would come 'out of taxable income." The president of U. S. Steel said the government then "will he obliged to lift the lid on prices if for no other reason t h a n to pro, ted its tax- revenues and to maintain its own income." Appears Before Board Fairless presented his arguments against another pay boost for steel workers in a prepared statement before a Wage Stabilization Board panel seeking to prevent a strike in the steel industry . threatened for February 23. Arguments for an 18 Vi cents- an-hour wage increase and other benefits were made before t h e . board last week by the CJO United Steelworkers of America. The union Friday added a demand for a guaranteed minimum annual wage.- i In'Ms statement today, Fairless i · described the guaranteed annual j tt-age as inflationary and a guise | for the' industry paying "large i Bums for no work at all." ! The total demands of the union would average more than $1,000 a year per worker, Fairless said. Since V-J Day. he said, the pay and other benefits of the steel workers "havr gone up five times in five years." ! The raises, he added, ha\'e been! far in excess of an increase in , productivity ot^ in the cost o f ! living. j "Today our steel workers arc i among the highes'. paid wage .earners in the world," he said. The first speaker for industry j · before the panel, Fairless said j higher prices lor steel, following a. wage increase, would set a fur- ! ther inflationary, pattern through- j out the nation. ! "We've been tcllit.g ourselves! that we'll swear off," he said, i "But tomorrow never comes." If; the nation is to remain strong, { he said, "somehow, sometime j we've got to slop this economic' jag. There is only pne'way to stop ; this wage-price spiral and that is: to slop it." 1 The possibility of a nationwide ; iteel strike hinges on the outcome of the.hearings. The union threatened to strike January 1 but post" poned the strike deadline to.Feb- ruary 23. Present wages average between $1.92 and $1.97 an hour.

Pulaski Court Suit' Not Needed, Member Of Highway Commission Says Liltlc Bock-(/P)-An Arkansas higlnvny commissioner charged wilh diverting state money to the campaign fund of Gov. Sid McMath said yesterday he will deposit the a m o u n t in question with Pulaski Circuit Court.

Adams ar.d Woods are accused in the suit, filed hy Ally. Gen. Ike Murry. of wrongful appropriation of public funds. Adams said the charge was "utterly ridiculous." Murry filed the suit following testimony before the Highway A u d i t Commission that the money, purportedly raised by public subscription in 1950 to finance improvements on the Indian Bay Road in Monroe County, ended up in the governor's campaign fund. The money was in two checks made payable to Adams and endorsed by Woods as "campaign manager."
