Hawaii Strikers Seek To Take Over Firms, Committee Is Told An attorney for Hawaiian steve j dore ■ companies today told Con ! gress that the 79-day dock workers strike is an effort to wrest from management the control of its industry. James P. Blaisdell. counsel for seven strikebound companies, said it is not simply a bid for higher wages. He declared the CIO Longshoremen's and Warehouse men's Union wants "forced arbi tration or else.” Mr. Blaisdell testified before the Senate Labor Committee. Harry Bridges. ILWU president, was due to follow Mr. Blaisdell to the witness chair. Opposed to Arbitration. The committee is considering a bill by Senator Knowland, Re publican. of California, to provide for a presidential fact-finding board whose recommendations could be made binding at dis cretion of the President. Mr. Blaisdell said the employ ers are opposed to letting a board decide the dispute. "We are op posed to compulsory arbitration in principle,” he said. When opening the hearing. Chairman Elbert Thomas read a statement which said: "There is no question in my mind where the power lies to set tle this dispute. The power lies in the hands of the government of Hawaii and in its Legislature." Mr. Blaisdell said the Territory is "to all intents and purposes, shut off from the rest of the world” when its sea lines are cut. He added: "Therefore, when the ILWU strikes the docks in Hawaii it strikes not only against seven stevedoring companies, but against half a million people.” Ship Unloaded at Honolulu, But Loses Most of Crew HONOLULU.
