When collective bargaining dis-
putes arise, as between the union
and steel companies in 1959, un-
ion power far outweighs that of
the company, R. Conrad Cooper,
executive vice-president in charge
of personnel services for the Unit-
ed States Steel Corporation, said,
Speaking at the Advanced Per-
sonnel Development Course pre-
sented by the University Bureau
of Industrial Relations, Cooper
emphasized that the future course
of labor - management relations
may determine America's success
as a world power and a free. en-
The nation's future depends "in
part upon the success or failure
of collective bargaining, not only
as an institution for the handling
of employe-employer dealings, but

as it effects the economic health
of individual plants, companies,
industries and the country at
large," he said.
Union leaders "are in a position
of tremendous power with attend-
ant responsibility. The existence
and use of this vast power pro-
duces the situation where in a
group of steel companies negotiate
in concert through a designated
"On the union's side there is
the full force of organized aggres-
siveness. The union enjoys and
heretofore has employed legal im-
munity at will to shut down most
of the nation's steel-making capa-
city to enforce its wage and bene-
fit demands," he explained.
"But on the side of the com-
panies there lies only the power
of persuasion ' and ability to say
no to demands which they cannot
conscientiously accept - and to
suffer the consequences.
"The enforcement of uniform
wage and benefit increases upon
the many competing companies
obviously poses unequal problems
for the individual companies and
plants. The ultimate result of such
practices, if continued, can only
be the destruction of jobs and
employment in companies unable
to remain competitive," he said.
Cooper said a small number of
the larger steel companies have
been forced to "band together as
best they can" to bargain with "a
powerful labor union whose tac-
tics are of such a magnitude as
to have national and even world
consequences." Smaller companies
stand aside to await their eco-
nomic fate," he added.
Results of union power in the
steel industry from 1940 to 1958,

Cooper said, include an average
rise in man-power employment
costs of 8 per cent per year, com-
pounded, while the average in-
crease in steel shipments per man-
hour was only two per cent per
"Under the present arrange-
ment, our hope for more construc-
tive collective bargaining in steel
in the foreseeable future rests on
whether the leaders of the steel-
workers union will recognize their
great responsibility and meet it
as effectively as they have here-
tofore exercised their great pow-
er," he added.
Don Herman, of Radio Station
WHRV, has resigned to accept a
newscasting job with WCKY, in
Herman, of Ypsilanti, was pro-
gram and news director of WHRV.
He will be replaced by his assist-
ant, Dave Nichols.
Michigan is in the running for
selection as the site of the world's
first electronic highway.
The main stretch under consid-
eration is US-23 from Ann Arbor
An electronic brain would con-
trol the cars on such a highway.
The driver might travel with no
hands on the wheel while gadgets
controlled the car. The other pos-
sibility for the highway's design
is that of hoisting the cars on
electrically controlled platforms.
Competitive bids from private
industry for construction of the
road will be considered by the
Bureau of Public Roads. General
Motors is bidding'from Michigan.
Other firms such as Westing-
house, Bendix and the Radio Cor-
poration of America are trying
for the contract.
Advisers have told the Kenne-
dy Administration that the auto-'
matic highway is technologically
feasible. It has been the subject
of private industry and univer-
A committee of experts will sub-
mit recommendations to Secre-
tary of Commerce Luther H.

The tentative proposal calls for
a 100-mile stretch of highway-
possibly between two major cities,
but including rural area. An esti-
mated $50 million would be spent
on the first phase of the experi-
The State Highway Department
is also considering as tentative
routes Interstate 75 from Detroit
to Toledo, US-131 south from Kal-
amazoo, US-127 south from Jack-
son and US-27 from below Lans-
State Highway Commissioner
John C. Mackie said the highway
"would be a wonderful thing for
Michigan." The highway is seen
as a major boost to Michigan's
economy as a tourist attraction.
Officials say that it would rival
the Straits of Mackinac Bridge.
"Motorists would come from all
the other 49 states. It would be a
terrific attraction. It's too bad we
can't figure out some way to
charge admission-if we get it-
but, of course, it would be free,"
said one of them.
Other states which are attempt-
ing to win the construction of the
highway are Ohio and California.
The Defense Department has
completed a film which will re-
place the controversial "Operation
Abolition" and "Communism on
The film is to be a training
source for members of the armed
forces. It is described as an "offi-
cial narrative of Communism."
The new film is labeled the "Chal-
lenge of Ideas."
The film was produced in co-
operation with Edward R. Mur-
row, chief of ' the United States
Information Agency, Hanson Bald-
win of the New York Times, Low-
ell Thomas, television and radio
commentator and John Wayne
and Helen Hayes of film and
Work on the script of the film
was started over a year ago under
the direction of the Pentagon's
troop information and education
Production of the master film
was close to $20,000. The army
has ordered 200 copies, the Navy
and Marine Corns 184, and the
Air Force 275. Wayne and Miss
Hayes are said to have donated
"Challenge of Ideas" is replac-
ing similar films by nondefense
organizations. Among them are
the House Un-American Activi-
ties Committee's film of the San
Francisco riots against the com-
mittee, "Operation Abolition," and
"Communism on the Map."
The Defense Department with-
drew these two films from use
stating that they would be re-
placed by one of its own making.
In ordering this done, the depart-
ment said the film would be used
for troop information programs.
The new film will be followed by
a second which is based on youth
organizations. This film is still in
the script-writing stage. Several
others are planned for production.
