Murray shouted the statement in his opening address to the union's sixth biennial convention. The 3,- ' 000 delegates representing the 1,100.000 stood up and cheered. i Murray, president of the steel- , workers and the CIO, did not say ! the union would go out on strike! again, hut the possibility of such j action was implied in his words. ! He said that since the u n i o n he- , . gan wage contract negotiations l a s t ; November -- "a long, long time ago."--the industry consistently · has refused to bargain. "This positive fact." Murray ·aid, "stands out as one of the most historic points in these long proceedings: That the industry , stubbornly refused to negotiate: even at the personal request of the ] president of the United States " Dispute Hlghliirhts Traced I Murray, in tones sometimes both sarcastic and bitter, traced high- ' lights of the current steel dispute. He said the union was prepared to strike January 1. when the present, contract expired, but remained at work and. agreed--as the industry also did--to present the case to the Wage Stabilization Board for settlement.

'·We have accepted the Stabili- bation Board recommendations . even if it isn't as much as we. wanted." Murray asserted. "Rut j the industry has refused to accept' this recommendation.

The temporary "shortage" of spuds, which has plagued retailers and housewives for about three weeks, will not get much better, apparently, u n t i l more of this year's crop of new potatoes gets onto the market. Observers close to the situation disagreed, when contacted by TIMES reporters, on the cause of the shortage. But most of them declared it 1S a temporary situation and probably will clear up within a few weeks. There are v i r t u a l l y no "old" potatoes left, they observed, and as , yet the supply of "new" potatoes i has not been forthcoming to meet mo demand. When the new crop! gets on the market in large quan-,' title?, ihe situation will probably ' improve. ' . Government price controls, re- ' suiting in a black market with , higher prices, were blamed by' some grocers, who declared that an artificial "shortage" has been created while aclually there are plenty of potatoes. But other specialists contended t h a t an actual shortage exists-temporarily--and noted t h a t black market prices could not be obtained if the demand did not exceed the supply at the moment. Most grocers revealed that they have not received normal shipments of potatoes for the past Miss Newport How Washington and Renton ; county f a r m e r s can increase their : dollar income and r e b u i l d the land at the same t i m e will be explained ! in "six easy steps" Thursday when Mhe 1852 c a v a l c a d e of greener pas| tures comes lo Northwest A r k a n - - j sas.
