J.« Steel Union Accepts 6-Day Truce, Delaying Strike Until October 1; Parley May Reopen Tomorrow x_______ _ Murray Reveals Workers' Decision For Further Talks HOPE -or COAL SETTLEMENT Fades as Operators Await Steel Action. Page ,A-2. By James Y. Newton The CIO United Steelworkers notified President Truman today they would accept his proposal to extend the steel industry truce aix days beyond the Saturday mid night deadline, thereby removing the immediate threat of a walk out by the million-member union. Philip Murray, the Steelworkers president, announced the decision after a brief meeting of the union’s Wage Policy Committee in Pittsburgh. Mr. Murray said he was con tacting the various big steel com panies and that he hoped to resume bargaining on a new contract with the United States Steel Corp. tomorrow. Although Mr. Truman asked for only a six day extension of the truce—until October 1—he also requested the resumption of bargaining on the controversial pension and insur ance issues at one. That could postpone a steel strike indefinitely. Big segments of steel manage ment, led by United States Steel Corp., already had approved Mr. Truman’s latest propoasl. The picture had been darkened earlier when about 5,000 workers in three Pittsburgh district plants walked off the job yesterday, some of them apparently jumping the gun on the strike deadline. Steel officials described the strike as unauthorized and said the men were “jittery over the whole situ ation in the steel industry.” A union official said the walk out of 2,500 workers at two of the plants was the result of the presi dential request for a new truce. The men, employed by the Univer sal-Cyclops Steel Co. and Su perior Steel, failed to report to work today. The third strike, at an American Bridge Co. plant, was caused by a shop grievance. “The men are tired of exten sions in the steel dispute and that has resulted in this walkout,” the Union official commented of strikes at the Universal and Su perior plants. Benjamin F. Fairless, president of United States Steel, answered the President’s request a few hours after it was made to union and management officials who were attending a meeting here with Cyrus S. Ching, the Federal mediation chief, who was attempt ing to bring about resumption of bargaining on the big issues of pensions and social insurance for the workers. Second Extension Obtained. Mr. Fairless said “Big Steel” would give the “greatest weight and earnest consideration” in bargaining with the union to the recommendations of the Presi dent’s fact-finding board. Ap pointment of the board delayed a strike 60 days, and another 11 day extension of the deadline was obtained after the board reported to Mr. Truman. The board turned down the onion’s request for a fourth post war wage increase. It proposed that the companies finance a pen sion-social insurance plan which would cost 10 cents per man per hour, six cents of which would go to pensions. Main stumbling block to re sumption of negotiations has been Mr. Murray’s .insistence that the companies accept board recom mendations as a basis for settle ment before bargaining is re sumed. The employers flatly re fused to do that. They say that any pension-insurance plan must be supported jointly by the com panies and the employes. Both Mr. Murray and the steel company executives held that the President’s carefully worded letter of yesterday vindicated their re spective positions in regard to the basis for new bargaining. For a long time United States Steel re fused to discuss pensions with the union. Now they are willing to bargain on pensions and give weight to the presidential board’s findings. “I believe the President’s state ment is a complete vindication of the steelworkers’ position,” Mr. Murray told reporters. Mr. Truman described the board report as “a statesmanlike furmu la for fair and equitable settle ment” of the pension and insur ance issues. He added that he is in “fullest agreement” with the board’s opinion that its recom mendations for company - paid plans “form a suitable basis” on which agreement can be reached. Industry spokesman said the President’s request for bargaining upholds their position—they want to bargain but without agreeing to accept the board’s recommenda tions. The board was merely an investigative body—its recommen dations are not binding. MacArthur Heads Jap Scouts TOKYO, Sept. 22. (*)—Qen.

VA Oversight May Cost Ex-GIs Part of Tuition and Subsistence Deadline for Enrollment in New Courses Is Announced Too Late for Compliance By George Beveridge Thousands of veterans through out the country and hundreds in the Washington area probably will have to pay part of their own tuition to GI training courses this fall and may lose up to several weeks of subsistence pay, The Star learned today. Veterans affected are those who have completed or quit previous GI bill training, and who failed to apply before September 12 to the Veterans’ Administration for certificates making them eligible for the new courses they want to take this fall. Reason for the student vet erans’ predicament is that VA failed to tell them about the Sep tember 12 deadline until it was 'too late for most veterans to do anything about it. None of the press releases dis tributed by VA, a check showed, mentioned the September 12 dead line until September 15. VA officials said they could not estimate the number of veterans who will have to make some cash outlay toward their GI bill edu cation, but that the number could be “very large.” The deadline date is included in a new regulation, about which there was confusion, even at the top levels of VA, as late as yester day. The new policy is aimed at a much stricter control of so-called “avocational and recreational” courses. But it also affects the vast number of veterans enrolled in more standard education and training courses. It states that all prospective trainees who ask VA after Sep tember 12 to declare them eligible for courses must tell VA the name of the school and the specific course they intend to enter. For merly, the “eligibility certificates” allowed veterans to enter any ap proved school. Furthermore, if veterans have (See VETERANS, Page A-4.) House Chiefs Abandon Efforts for Repeal Of Taff-Hartley Law Lesinski Says Committee Won't Act This Year Or in January Session •y Hi* Associated Press House leaders appear to have written off chances for getting a new labor law through Congress —inot only for this year but for 1950 as well. Chairman Lesinski of the House Labor Committee said today his committee will take no further action on Tift-Hartley repeal— now, or at the next session start ing in January. With demands for some new legislation almost certain if the Nation's strike picture worsens, Mr. Lesinski told reporters: "Unless the attitude of the House changes we don’t intend to try to report another labor bill.” And With the 1950 election campaign already warming up, Mr. Lesinski said he doesn’t look for any immediate change in atti tude. No Labor Bills Pending. Early In the session, the House rejected the administration’s labor bill and sent a substitute measure back to committee, leaving it with no labor legislation pending. The Senate passed a bill con taining many of the features of the union-hated Taft-Hartley law. The House hasn’t acted on the Senate bill and leaders have indi cated no intention of doing so. President Truman, who cam paigned for Taft-Hartley repeal in the 1948 presidential election, said recently that the administration will fight to the bitter end to wipe that measure off the books. Besides Taft-Hartley repeal, a proposal to exempt maritime hir ing halls from. Taft-Hartley’s closed-shop provisions also is caught in the congressional labor squeeze. Taft-Hartley bans the closed shop, in which only union members may be hired. Maritime hiring halls are union agencies for supplying ship labor. Revival of Issue Feared. Mr. Lesinski said that if the House were to pass the hiring hall measure, the Senate might vote to tack its own labor bill on as an amendment and thus throw the whole Taft-Hartley issue into the open again. The committee chairman indi cated that in future months the group will turn to other matters under its jurisdiction—such as school needs. But he made clear tAat there is no rush in the House to become involved again in a Federal aid to-education controversy. Legislation toward that end be came bogged down in .the House after Catholic churchmen criti cized proposed bans against ex penditures for parochial school transportation, health services, and the like., Catholic Press to Hold 1950 Congress In Rome By Associated Pross VATICAN CITY, Sept. 22.—The Catholic press will hold its third international congress in Rome during Holy Year under the aus pices of the Catholic Press Com mission of the Holy Year. The congress will meet from February 15 through 19. Its theme will be “The Catholic press at the service of liberty, justice and peace.” Striking Drivers Plan To Extend Picketing to Baltimore Truckers Incoming Freight Piles Up Pennsylvania Terminal; B. & 0. Boosts Deliveries Striking District truck drivers plan to extend their picket lines to warehouses in Baltimore today in an effort to break the solid front of seven large trucking firms which are resisting union demands for wage increases. Charles J. Bell, president of Local 639. Trade Drivers’ Union, said pickets have been assigned to 8trol the Baltimore warehouses the Davidson Tranter it Storage Co., Baltimore Transfer Co., W. T. Cowan, Inc., and Brooks’ Transfer Co., beginning at 4 p.m. today. “We don’t think the Baltimore drivers will cross our picket lines,” Mr. Bell said. Some Trucks Kept Rolling. Although Washington oprta tions of the four firms stopped when the strike was called at 6 pm. Tuesday their interstate trucks have continued to roll out of Baltimore and Richmond terminals. These trucks made no deliveries in Washington, how ever. Picket lines were formed again this morning around the Wash ington warehouses of the seven struck firms. Affected by the strike, in addition to the four firms named above, are the Eagle Transfer Co., the Savage Truck Line and the Elliott Motor Lines. The impact of the strike con tinued today to be felt most se verely at the Pennsylvania Rail road freight terminal, Fourth street and Virginia avenue S.W., which also serves the Southern Railway, C. Sc O. and R., F. Sc P. Railroads. About 50 carloads of District freight arrive at the ter minal daily. Freight Agent Grover Black stone said all of the freight is being unloaded as it arrives, but consignees are notified that they must make individual arrange ments for delivery of their goods. To avoid warehouse and platform congestion, tho railroads plan to use hundreds of empty boxcars as temporary warehouses for freight which is not called for. B. Si O. Increases Deliveries. The Baltimore Sc Ohio freight terminal, unaffected by the strike because its contract trucker has an individual agreement with the union, reported a marked increase in deliveries as shipments into Washington were re-routed over B. Sc O. lines. The railroad also reported picking up much of the freight which normally comes into Washington by truck. Mr. Bell said the union has made emergency arrangements to (See TRUCKERS, Page A-4.) China Asks U. N. To Act Quickly To Stop Reds Russians Directing Communists' Drive, Assembly Informed CHINESE RED LEADER An nounces Formation of ‘Peoples Republic.’ Page A-6. By the Associated Press NEW YORK, Sept. 22.—China called on the United Nations As sembly today to act quickly to prevent communism from engulf ing China and the entire Far East. For the first time, China also charged that Russia was directing the Chinese Communists. China’s chief delegate. Dr. T. F. Tsiang, told the 59 national dele gations that the North Atlantic pact had halted the flow of com munism across Europe, but there was no such barrier in the East. “The Chinese Communist Par ty,” he said, “is an integral part of the international Communist movement. It is as fanatical as Communists elsewhere. Its propa ganda is always in tune with Mos cow propaganda. Its action is al ways in step with Moscow’s ac tion.” Red Regime Set Up. Dr. Tsiang spoke less than 24 hours after the Chinese Com munists proclaimed at Peiping the establishment of a Communist People's Republic of China. He told the Assembly Soviet Russia had outdone even Czarist Russia in the conquests of Man churia. Dr. Tsiang, who speaks fluent English, delivered his declaration in classic Mandarin Chinese, Na tionalist China’s official language. The Chinese delegation circulated a text of the speech translated into English. When Dr. Tsiang finished he was applauded loudly except from the Soviet bloc delegates. Big 4 Ministers Absent. Russian Foreign Minister An drei Y. Vfshinsky, Secretary of State Acheson, British Foreign Secretary Bevin, French Foreign Minister Schuman and several other top-ranking diplomats were absent. One Soviet delegate, Semyon K. Tsarapkin, was asked by newsmen for comment and he replied with a flourish of his cigarette holder: “It's so foolish a speech that I do not know whether there will be any reaction.” Mr. Tsarapkin said Mr. Vishin sky might deliver Russia’s policy speech this afternoon or tomorrow. So far Mr. Vishinsky is not on the speaker’s list. British Minister of State Hector McNeil had this comment on the Chinese declaration: "It was a very good speech.” The only other speaker this af ternoon besides Dr. Tsiang was the Iraqi foreign minister, Fadhil Jamali. The Assembly recessed until 3 p.m. Makes Appeal for Help. Dr. Tsiang devoted almost his entire speech to an attack on Communism. Then he made his appeal for help. “I ask the General Assembly,” he said, “to ponder over the pre sent situation in the Far East (See U. N., Page A-4.)

Possibility of Arson Reported Probed in Toronto Ship Disaster TORONTO, Sept. 22.—The To ronto Star said today a secret inquiry at the Ontario fire mar shal’s office is investigating the possibility of-arson in connection with last Saturday’s fire aboard the cruise steamer Noronic. At least 132 persons lost their lives in the tragedy. \ The Star said at least two crew members of the Canada- Steam ship Lines vessel had not been lo cated by inygstigators. The newspaper says the inves tigation has not revealed the cause of the flie, but that crew members already questioned are said to believe it started in the ship’s linen closet. Passengers in the cabin next to the closet are listed as missing and no remains were found in the cabin. The Star adds that investigators were trying to determine what had been stored in the linen closet that'might have started the blase. The linen itself was not con sidered combustible.

Accuses Ohio Newspaper Of Injuring Radio Competition Lorain Journal and Four Executives Named in First Court Action of Its Kind The Jutice Department an nounced today the Government had filed its first case under the Sherman anti-trust act against a newspaper accused of conspiring to injure a competing radio sta tion. A preliminary injuction was sought against the Lorain, Ohio, Journal Co., and four of its officers requiring that the Journal accept advertising from sources which also advertise over radio stations in Lorain and nearby Elyria, and in a competing Sunday newspaper at Lorain, it was said. Attorney General McGrath said the suit, filed in Cleveland Federal Court, was the first of its kind against a newspaper. The publi cation was charged with under taking to acquire ownership of the competition and refusing to accept advertising given also to the radio stations and the Sunday papeT. The announcement said that numerous affidavits from business men in Lorain, Elyria and Cleve land were filed along with the suit, reciting their experiences with the Journal. In a statement, Mr. McGrath said: “As the Supreme Court pointed out in the Associated Press case, (See NEWSPAPER, Page A-4.) Parliament Recalled Tuesday for Debate On Pound Devaluation Speculation Increasing That Attlee May Have to Order Election Soon ■y the Associated Press LONDON, Sept. 22. —Prime Minister Attlee’s cabinet agreed today to call Parliament from its vacation next Tuesday to debate devaluation of the pound. Meanwhile, speculation in creased that devaluation may compel Mr. Attlee to call a gen eral election soon. One well-in formed pro-Labor informant said the chance of an early election now seemed about 50-50. Labor rank and file remained restless and fearful of higher liv ing costs to come from devalua tion. But railway workers, bowing to union discipline, spumed a call for a paralyzing slow-down strike on London subways this morning. They instead were awaiting de valuation developments. A government source confirmed the cabinet’s decision to recall Parliament for an emergency ses sion. Neither house normally would-reconvene until October 18. Session to Last 2 or 3 Days. Conservative Winston Churchill. Liberal Leader Clement Davies and the Communist Party all had demanded an earlier meeting to consider devaluation. The session will last two or three days, de pending on how much time the opposition requires, the informant said. Politicians of the left and right agreed that devaluation’s promise of harder times was creating a Stem test for the Socialist regime. Plans to throw London's subway system into chaos in protest against rejection of wage-boost demands fizzled out. Only a hand ful of the capital’s 50,000 railway men heeded a call by their local union for a slowdown beginning last midnight. Politicians of the left and right, however, agreed that the Labor government still faced a severe test of making its devaluation policy work. 25th Nation Takes Step. Meanwhile, the list of nations slashing the value of.the money rose to 25. Hashemite Jordan cut its pound in line with the British devaluation today: Luxembourg and Portugal did the same yes terday. In Paris, a high American offi cial predicted that Prance, Italy and Belgium will soon make a compact to exchange their cur rencies freely with each other as a move to meet British trade com-! petition. The go-slow threat misfired after top officials of the National Union of Railwaymen appealed to the rank and file not to upset (See DEVALUATION, PageA-4.) Arms Slash Backers Show Gain as Senate Prepares to VofeTo&f Bill Held Sure to Pass, But Approval of Full Amount Sought Is Doubtful By J. A. O'Leary Advocates of a further cut in the $1,314,010,000 foreign military aid bill were gaining ground as the Senate prepared to vote at 6 o’clock this evening. The bill to strenghten 16 na tions co-operating with the United States to prevent another war is sure to pass, but administration leaders concede they face a hard fight to hold a majority against peiiding amendments to reduce the $1,000,000,000 earmarked for Western Europe. Both parties are split on the amount that should be put up this year to carry out the North Atlantic treaty. On the Demo cratic side the administration finds three influential Southern Demo crats—Senators George. Byrd and Russell—working to cut the European fund to $600,000,000. Vandenberg Also Opposed. On the Republican side, Senator Vandenberg of Michigan, leading exponent of bipartisan foreign policy, is supporting the admin istration figures, but he also finds a substantial bloc of Republican Senators ready to line up for less. In short, a bipartisan economy bloc is challenging the backers of bipartisan foreign policy. Once the amendments are out of the way, observers expect the bill to pass by an overwhelming major ity, probably by 7 p.m. Regardless of how today’s fight ends, the bill which goes to Presi dent Truman for signature is al most certain to contain less than $1,314,010,000. The House already has cut the European fund in half, which brought the total of its bill down to $819,505,000. This means the final draft will have to be a compromise. George Motion Dae for First Vote. As the bill now stands, it sep arates the European fund into $500,000,000 cash and a like amount of contract authority. The flrg£ *vote may come on Senator Oeorga's motion to make this $300,000,000 cash and $200, 000,000 of contract authority. If this fails to carry. Senator Knowlandt Republican, of Califor nia, will move for smaller cuts of $100,000,000 from the cash and $100,000,000 from the oontract authoriation, leaving $800,000,000 for North Atlantic treaty nations.

Pressmen Put 'Heat' On Lesinski, Ended Probe, Jacobs Says Intends to Ask House To Create Select Group to Continue Investigation Representative Jacobs, Demo crat, of Indiana charged today a House Labor Committee investiga tion of undemocratic trade union practices was dropped because of “heat” brought by the Interna tional Printing Pressmen’s Union on Chairman Lesinski. Mr. Jacobs was chairman of the investigating subcommittee. Mr. Lesinski, as chairman of the full committee, abolished It and other subcommittees last month. The Indiana congressman, a former labor lawyer, said that he would introduce a resolution in the House, probably today, to re create his committe as a select oommitte of the House and, a* such. Outside of the jurisdiction ol the Labor Committee, in that way he hopes to continue the investi gation of the Pressmen’s Union as well as undemocratic procedures in other unions. The Jacobs subcommittee held extensive hearings on the press men in June and July and heard evidence of the suspension of local charters and the suspension of in dividual members who refused to bow to the will of international officers. Manipulation Charged. Most of the evidence brought out in the investigation pertained to the manipulation of union funds by the late George L. Berry, onetime Senator from Tennes see, who was president of the Pressmen’s Union for 40 years un til hfe death last December. Mr. Berry was accused of diverting huge sums of union money to his personal use and leaving his own and the union’s financial affairs in a near-hopeless tangle. "Heat was put on by the Press* men’s Union to dissolve the sub committee, and Lesinski couldn’t stand the heat,’’ Mr. Jacobs said, George L. Googe, a union inter national vice president, "was out ir my district in Indiana bragging about dissolution of the committe* a week before it took place,’’ Mr Jacobs declared. Mr. Lesinski said yesterday 11 was necessary to end the activities of Mr. Jacobs’ subcommittee be cause a request for an additional $42,000 financing was unfavorably received by the House Adminis tration Committee. Studies Seen Needed. To this, Mr. Jacobs retorted: "He (Mr. Lesinski) is practicing rank deception when he says that. The House Administration Com mittee did not vote on the resolu tion for the $42,000, although 1 understand that all but one or two favored it.” There are a number of things demanding congressional study, Mr. Jacobs said. He named one ;a« the question of democracy in the maritime unions, and another as the question of Communist con (Bee PRESSMEN, Page A-4.) Two Men Prevent Clerk From leaping Off Bridge The attempt of a 37-year-old clerk to leap from the Calvert Street Bridge last night was pre vented by two men who were walking by as he climbed to the rail, police reported. The two men grabbed and held the would-be suicide until police, summoned by a motorist, arrived and assisted in pulling him to safety. The two men left without identifying themselves, according to Corp. Frank V. Breazeale. The clerk told police he wanted to “end it all.” He said he lived in the 3600 block of Thirty-eighth street N.W. Police sent him to Oallinger Hospital for mental ob servation. B-36 Probe Calls For Appearance Of Symington Presence at Naval Inquiry Required, Air Chief Informed By Robert K. Walsh A naval court of inquiry insisted today that the “physical presence” of Air Secretary Symington is needed for testimony on the back ground of a memorandum criticiz ing the Air Force’s B-36 bomber program. Mr. Symington did not appear at the opening of today’s session, although the three-admiral court late yesterday requested him to do 90. Instead, he sent a letter say ing he had returned early today from New York and would “sup ply” answers to any questions sent to him at his office. Admiral Thomas C. Kinkaid, president of the court, directed its judge advocate, Capt. Sanford B. D. Wood, to inform Mr. Symington at once that his physical presence was needed. Available at 4 P.M. Later, Capt. Wood put through a call to Mr. Symington’s qffice and was told the Secretary would not be available until 4 p.m. Capt. Wood said he would confer with Mr. Symington then to determine whether he will agree to testify personally. Capt. Wood also reported to the court that he had talked with Representative Lyle, Democrat, of Texas. He said Mr. Lyle was will ing to testify but prefers not to do so because he thinks he can add nothing to the evidence the court has obtained. No further steps were taken toward getting Mr. Lyle to be a witness. I Mr. Symington, one of the cen i tral figures mentioned in the B-36 'document, told the House Armed ! Services Committee last month that he knew who had prepared ! the paper. He said it was a group of persons, and he offered to name names. j A note from Mr. Symington1* i office last night stated that h* | had gone to New York in accord ance with a previous engagement and might return sometime to day. The note added that he «ug guested that the court “transmit to him questions it would like to have answered and h* would tolto these questions under considera tion when he returned.11 When the court convened this morning, it received a personal letter from Mr, Symington. Be explained he had gone to New York to attend a dinner given hy the American Ordnance Associa tion for Secretary of Defense Johnson. He said that when he read newspaper accounts of the court’s request he shortened his trip and returned early today. His letter expressed willingness to an swer questions, but did not say he would be willing to appear be fore the court. Kinkaid’s Announcement. Admiral Kinkaid, after reading the letter, announced: “The court instructs the judge advocate to inform Secretary Symington thgt his physical pres ence is needed by the court of inquiry because evidence before this court could be used at any future trial of individuals, and because in the course of that evi dence the individuals who are in terested parties are privileged to examine any witnesses.” The memo in question was ad mittedly written by. Cedric R. Worth, suspended civilian assist ■ ant to Undersecretary of the Navy i Kimball.
