In Attempt]
Early Settlement Appears.
Un-likelyDespite Pressure
PITTSBURGH (P) - Steel negotiators, feeling the pressure of
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's request for an early settlement of
the 79-day-old steel strike, met twice yesterday but gave no signs of
nearing a solution.
There was some speculation that the industry may have softened
its position on a one-year wage freeze, but nothing said or done by
the negotiators tended to confirm such optimism.

despite pleas of the government and wishes of their leaders.
As a result, shipping on two thirds of the American coastline was
virtually brought to a standstill.
Hundreds of dry cargo vessels were tied up. Fuel tankers generally
were exceptions because they were handled by other unions.
Means More Wars
The strike meant further woes for a nation already suffering eco-

New Tax Form

form designed to make taxpaying
easier, if no less costly, for 17 mil-

This is the first all-new tax re-
turn in five years.
Called .form 1040W, it can be
used by anyone whose income con-

Informed diplomats said Herter

Eisenhower was reported deter-

united democratic Germany.

llope for Announcement ,
Conservative circles hoped an
announcement of the summit date
would come before Britons vote
for a new Parliament Thursday.
Such a development, they felt,'
would insure a Conservative vic-
tory. But diplomats thought any
sudden announcement unlikely,
although British newspapers were
predicting the summit meeting
wouldo come before Christmas,
with Geneva the likely site.
Macmillan's Conservatives and:
Hugh Gaitskell's Laborites stepped
up the pace of their campaigns.
Public opinion polls usually very
close to the mark in Britain --
showed the two parties now were
running almost neck and neck,
but with 18 % per cent of the elec-.
torate reporting itself undecided.
Switches Emphasis -
MacMillan switched the empha-
sis in his campaign back to f or-
eign affairs. Labor countered with
a bid for the housewives' vote.
Labor party headquarters is-
sued a statement saying a govern-
ment under Gaitskell would"abol-
ish purchase (sales) tax on essen-
tials such as clothes, furniture
and many household goods."
These taxes already have been
whittled down in eight year's of
Conservative rule.s
MacMillan will represent Brit-
ain at the summit if the Conserv-
atives win a majority in the 630-
seat House of aCommons.
A Labor victory will send Gait-
skell there. And if the two parties
finish in a dead heat - as cur-
rent public opinion samplings in-
dicate they might - the small
Liberal party would hold the bal-
ance of power.
The Liberals could give the pre-
miership and the summit seat to
either Macmillan or Gaitskell de-
pending on which way they threw
their strength. e
