He was forced to crawl through the wilderness because of an injured leg, he said. The Air Force said the inves tigation is being conducted to locate the plane and "to check carefully and see what caused the crash." It said Steeves also is being questioned at length "to determine his reactions and evaluate them with regard to survival training." But the Air Force emphasized it "has no reason to believe the story is false until completion of the investigation which may take a long time."

About 1000 workers are affected by the walkout. Weber said negotiations Monday afternoon failed to produce an agreement. Pickets went on the line at 5:55 p.m., and no further talks were scheduled.
