Steel Disputants







Wait Ike's


Both Sides Ask for Negotiations,
Not Enforcement of Taft-Hartley
PrTTSBURGH (A)-Steel disputants yesterday idly waited Prepi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower's decision on invoking the Taft-Hartley
Law to end the 86-day steel strike, worst in industry history.
A Pittsburgh newspaper succintly headlined "Ike's move: Taft-
Hartley or not?"
There was no immediate sign of any action by the President on
the steel strike after his return to Washington late yesterday from a
rest trip in Palm Springs, Calif.
Lists Appointments
Presidential Press Secretary James Hagerty gave newsmen a list
of the President's appointments for today and then told them: "That's


'.. Center chairman

The decision to emphasize schol-
arly initiative within a "general"
framework of research on preven-
tion of global war was the major
outcome of the Center for Re-
search on Conflict Resolution Con-
ference which ended Tuesday.
The Center will not lay down
rigid, detailed boundaries for re-
search projects, Prof. Robert An-
gell, chairman, announced.
Rather, it hopes to stimulate ex-
amination of the problems of war
and peace through exploiting four
proposals raised at the conference:
1) sponsoring spontaneous re-
search which can be integrated
into the Center's general program,.
2) establishing a division of re-
search labor, 3) locating men at
smaller institutions, who have in-
tellectual potential, and 4) secur-
ing uncommitted funds for flexi-
Question Is Constant
"A constant problem has been
the question: Should we establish.
a program of research along defi-
nite lines and then find people
who will devote their efforts to the
specified work, or should scholars
decide on points of interest spon-
taneously and then the program
develop along lines they suggest?
"During the conference, we
t' reached a mid - point solution,"
Prof. Angell continued.
The Center's program generally
v involves studies in 1) implications
of permanent peace, 2) conflict
* resolution and peace-making and
3) ."politicometric"; forecasting --
prediction of the future of inter-
national relations.
Should Be Flexible
"The Center should be flexible
and open to suggestion in the de-
velopment of its program," William
Barth, executive secretary, be-
lieves. "These three areas will serve
as points of departure for research
The second proposal is intended
to satisfy what Barth calls a "def-
inite need" for division of labor
among international relations in-
stitutions and individuals involved
in research on conflict resolution.
"A meeting or series of meetings
in the future will attempt to co-
ordinate research activities and
avoid unwanted duplication of
study," Barth explained.
Lists Other Institutions
Prof. Angell named Yale, Har-
vard, Northwestern and Princeton
universities among other institu-
tions already examining interna-
tional relations.

There have been no steel nego-
tiations since Tuesday night when
top leaders of the industry and the
striking United Steelworkers Union
threw up their hands in despair of
reaching a new contract agree-
Mitchell, Officials Meets
There was a brief meeting mean-
while in New York between Secre-
tary of Labor James P. Mitchell
and steelworkers officials. Mit-
chell's only comment was that the
union leaders "brought me up to
date" on the strike situation.
Mitchell said he had met at the
Astor Hotel with steelworkers
President David J. McDonald and
Arthur J. Goldberg, the union's
chief counsel. The cabinet officer
would not say whether he planned
to meet also with industry leaders.
He also would not say whether
he was making a last-hour effort
to bring union and industry lead-
ers together for further bargain-
None Want Injunction
Neither side welcomed the pros-
pect of Eisenhower using the Taft-
Hartley Law to end the strike for
an 80-day cooling off period by
court injunction. Both, felt - this
only likely to postpone the day of
reckoning and lead to a possibly
worse strike next winter.
Even with a court-ordered strike
ban it would be many weeks be-
fore the idle mills could be put
pack into full production and the
500,000 strikers all called back to
their jobs.
Some industry sources said com-
panies would hardly get more than
30 days full production out of the
80-day strike respite. It's a long,
costly process to get mills repaired
and back to peak outut.
Negotiations to Continue
Negotiations would continue
through an 80-day Taft-Hartley
work resumption.
Under the T-H Law process an
inquiry board would have to report
on the strike issues and economic
impact. The President then could
seek the 80-day strike ban.
Based on the speed achieved in
going through these preliminaries
in the current East-Gulf Coast,
docks strike, it would take until'
Saturday, at the earliest, andj
probably Monday before govern-
ment attorneys would go to court
for a steel strike injunction. j
An important question was how'
much enthusiasm would steel-
workers have in performing their'
jobs if forced back to work by
court edict.
There were mixed opinions. The
prevailing one was that workers,
while dissatisfied with the un-
settled situation, would be intent
on building up earnings to pay off
debts accumulated during the 13-
week strike and laying aside a
nest egg for any new strike'
around Christmas.

Close Ties
By Victory
See Steadying Force
In World Affairs
The overwhelming Conservative
victory in the British elections has
been viewed as a guarantee of the
continuence of the close relation-
ship between the United States and
Great Britain.
Prof. James Pollock, chairman of
the political science department
said the Conservative victory would
be a stabilizing influence in inter-
national affairs. Also the present
British policies toward the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization, the
Soviet Union and the United States
would remain the same.
Old Combination To Last
"The old peace and prosperity
combination seems unbeatable."
Prof. J. David Singer, visiting pro-
fessor of the political science de-
partment said. The Republicans in
our country have been using it for
years and now the Conservatives,
he added.
As a second reason for the Con-
servative victory, Prof. Singer com-
mented, that the laboring classes
in Britain seem to attribute the
present peace and prosperity to the
efforts of the Conservative Party.
A victory for the Labor Party
would have meant a possible de-
mand for a stronger voice for
Britain in NATO and a less lenient
position towards France and Ger-
many, Prof. Singer declared.
curious aspect of the present situa-
tion is that all of the Big Four of
the western world, the United
States, France, Germany and Brit-
ain, now have conservative parties
in power.
Want Continuance
The implications of this election
is that the British people wish the
Conservative Party to continue
with its association with the Re-
publican Party in the United
States, he said.
While this outcome possibly
means that the British.have turned
down the Labor idea of a Non-
Nuclear Club, he pointed out, it
doesn't mean that any mandate
was given as to an expansion of
the present powers who have the
nuclear weapons.
In commenting on the same sub-
ject, Karl A. Lamb, of the political
science department, said that this
election could be considered as a
mandate for the continued posi-
tion of the British toward nuclear
The United States should be
happy over the outcome of the
election, he said.

USSR Visitors Describe Ostraci


"For one month no one looked
at me, let alone spoke to me,"
Michael Luther, of the history de-
partment, reported.
"I had expected red carpet treat-
ment, but we were told nothing and
left alone for the first week,"
Harold Swayze of the political sci-
ence department affirmed.
Both men were referring to the
treatment, - each received during
the first part of their nine months
of study in the Soviet Union in a
talk in a jammed Angell Hall audi-

tracism had a very negative effect
on his subsequent stay, Luther
said, "When the ice melted, I was
"Did he get orders? Was he told
to speak to me? These thoughts
ran through my mind almost con-
"One was always in doubt, even
with his closest friends," Swayze
agreed, "although the atmosphere
was more relaxed and friendlier
than what Luther experienced."
Believe in Trust
"Trust" is a key-word in de-w
scribing the Soviet's feelings about
friendships," he continued. One of
my very closest friends asked me
if I "trusted" the other American
who lived with me.
"Soviet students are organized,"{
Luther related, addressing another
subject. Virtually every student be-
longs to at least two groups-the
Young Communist League on the
political level and the Trade Un-
ion on a professional level.
Indicating that this was some-
times a matter of necessity, Luther
explained that a person could not
become a member of the history
faculty, as an example, unless he'
was ideologically a member of the;
Young Communist League.
Reveals Reasons
Swayze revealed that from what
he was told by one Soviet woman,;
most students joined these organi-
zations to advance' their careers
and noe because they necessarily
agreed with them ideologically.
