believe they will be able to tie up
both industries, especially the pack
ing plants and the U. S. Steel Cor
poration's plants. -

ated from New York, but labor, agents

would effect practically every pack
ing house worker. In the steel in
dustry the main drive would be on
the U. S. Steel Co.'s plants.
