STEEL FACT FINDERS-The members of President Eisenhower's three-man fact finding board in
the steel strike convening at the Labor Department in Washington are, left to right, John A. Perkins
of Newark, Del.; Chairman George W. Taylor of Philadelphia, Pa.; and Paul N. Lahoczky of Columbus.

order may force an 80-day truce
in the record steel strike "but
there will be no permanent peace."
Steelworkers President David J.
McDonald told a White House fact
finding panel that at the end of
the enforced truce the basic issue
would remain unsolved.
The basic issue, he said, is
"whether the companies will break

omical Union and chairman of its

to support a drive for internation-
al protection of those radiofre-

radio astronomy.
'Stripped' Proposal
The current Dutch proposal be-
fore the International Telecom-
munications, Union (ITU) asks
that a half-dozen frequency bands
be reserved for radio astronomers,
but Prof. Goldberg called this a
"stripped-down minimum of the
steps that must be taken, to pro-
tect radio astronomy." -
The ITU, now meeting in Gene-
va, is a branch of the United Na-
tions set up to determine at 10
year intervals, who may use which
radio bands.
The radio waves originating bil-
lions of miles out in space are ex
tremely weak and easily "drowned
out" by stronger signals of the
earth or transmitted by man, he
explained, thus making it very

High-flying aiation, long range

nals reflected from satellites and
commercial radio stations are all
real or potential menaces to the
1 effective study of radio astronomy,
he continued.
Advances in communications in
the next decade, Prof. Goldberg
predicted, will intensify the de-
mand of military forces and com-
mercial radio and telegraph com-
panies for more radio channels.
"If radio astronomy bands
aren't protected during this meet-
ing (of the ITi), there wouldn't

years," Prof. Goldberg pointed out.

boomed that the steelworkers
"never, and I repeat never" would
yield to management's demands.
He said these call for elimina-
tion of protection for' workers
against changes in local working
conditions as a prerequisite to a
wage settlement.
McDonald shouted that such
changes-which the companies say
are necessary to cut labor costs-
can be imposed "only over our
dead bodies."
'Class' War Charged
The steel manufacturers, he said,
"have determined on class war."

LONDON (P) - Soviet Premier
Nikita Khrushchev last night was
reported to have raised with Mao
Tze-Tung the possibility of re-
leasing five American captives of
Red China.

premier also urged Mao privately
to do everything else he can to aid

The outcome of Khrushchev's
representations concerning the

Khrushchev promised President
Dwight D. Eisenhower in Wash-
ington last month he would take
up their cases with the Chinese as
a friendly gesture but stressed he
could not tell the Chinese to re-
lease them.
Red China meanwhile unre-

the safeguarding of world peace.".

say about the increasingly bitter
dispute which dragged through its
90th day.
The company representatives are
expected to state their case today.
In the past,-the companies have
accused the unions of demanding
pay boosts and other benefits that
management argued would threat-
en new inflation.
The steel firms have pledged to
resist this, and there' was no sign
they were ready to back off.
Foreshadows Walkout
This, together with McDonald's
no-retreat stand, pointed to a re-
newed walkout about New Year's
Day even if a Federal Court order
should send the strikers back to
the mills for 80 days.
McDonald said his union would
bow to an injunction, although
opposed to it.
However, there were indications
that members of the presidential
panel contacted both sides before
the hearing began in an apparent
effort to mediate and avoid an
injunction. Whether this effort
made any headway was not known
The panel's assigned job is to
find the facts in the case, but

Dislikes T-H Law
Taylor, an old hand at arranging
such settlements, is outspoken in
his feelings that a Taft-Hartley
injunction only serves to prolong
a labor dispute.
Both Steelworkers President Mc-
Donal and Counsel Goldberg
challenged the need for an injunc-
tion to halt the strike, which has
shut down about 85 per cent of the
nation's steelmaking plants and
idled about 800,000 workers, in-
cluding half a million steel hands.
This strike already ranks as the
longest in the turbulent history of
the industry.
Sees No Retreat
Goldberg contended the. strike
poses no threat to national health
or safety. The effect of an injunc-
tion would be to "bail out the steel
companies," the Union lawyer said.
He let is be known the steel union
would fight in federal court!

Labor Plea
For Review
preme Court yesterday granted an

a lower court ruling which could
profoundly affect union member-

It also followed a hands-off line
on details of school integration
cases. Its refusal to review lower
court rulings in school cases had
these effects:

there remains unchanged a circuit

tion which has resulted in county
officials closing all public schools.

Slowly and with dignity he
walked before a microphone to

Higher Sum
Called Goal
Of Officials
Final Totals Held
Pending Approval
Of Board of Regentso
The University released a "ten-
tative" operating budget request
to State Controller James Miller
Authorities would not tell exact
figures requested. One official in-
dicated the request for 1960-61
will be six or seven millon dollars
higher than this year's $33.4 mil-
lion appropriation.
A total of $39.2 was asked last
Four Improvements
The six-to-seven million dollars
would increase outlays in four
categories, listed by University
President Harlan Hatcher in his
address Monday night.
1) Faculty and staff salaries -
these would be hiked another nine
per cent, generally.
2) Enrollment-support for the
"possible 200" more s t u d e n t s
which President Hatcher sees en-
tering the University next fall.
Add More Books
3) Adjunct services - including
additional books for the libraries
and funds for "studentservices."
4) Maintenance of grounds "andl
buildings-"pretty shoddy," Pres-
ident Hatcher has called the Uni-
versity plant. Little money has
gone for refurbishing the grounds
for the past several years.
Further details on the 1960-61
operating budget will be released
after the Regents' meeting Oct.
23, when they will consider revi-
sions in the budget suggested at
their last meeting and presumably
approve the total request.
No Official Action
"Since the budget wasn't offi-
cially acted upon by the Regents,
the preliminary figure won't be
released to the public," Ilrector
of University Relations Lyle Nel-
son told The-Daily last night.
The preliminary report, "sub-
ject to revision by the Regents,
is now before the state budget
bureau's division on higher edu-
cation. It was sent to Lansing to
meet the Oct. 12 deadline on hig-
er education budget.s
Earlier this fall several of the
state's colleges and universities
had considered asking for an ex-
tended budget deadline, since the
state's late payments to the
schools delayed budget calcula-
tions, but there was no extension.

'Singers of Folk Songs'

Rock Detroiters on.


"We're singers of folk songs,"
said Dave Guard of the Kingston
Trio in response to a request to
define the type of singing the Trio
has popularized.
"We aren't folk singers," added
Bob Shane, "I personally don't
like folk singing; I don't like rock
and roll, either."
Nicky Reynolds, the third mem-
ber of the Trio, agreed that their
material is, adapted to suit their
idividual style. X
Change Continually
"We make some changes in ev-
erything we do," said Guard,
spokesman for the group.
The Kingston Trio appeared
Sunday night in Detroit, where
then Dlnved tn acnanaity crowd

few spirituals or blues numbers.
"I can imagine being on a ship but
not on a chain gang," as a mem-
ber of the Trio expressed it.
They got together during their
college days, when Dave studied
at Stanford University and Nick
and Bob attended Menlo Business
College, one mile apart in north-
ern California.
Began Professionally
In 1957, while Dave did gradu-
ate work in economics and the
others were working, the Trio de-
cided to try out their act as pro-
fessional entertainers.
"It was one of those things -
we knew if we didn't try it, we'd
hate ourselves all our lives," Guard
asserted. He dropped out of grad-
uate school, .Nicky and Bob quit
+hei. i.c and he Kin.+nn Tri

When asked why they decided
not to follow through their busi-
ness educational backgrounds, the
Trio countered, "Do you think we
don't call this a business?"
"I figured I could never get to
be head of a corporation that way,
so I quit and did it in three days,"
Nicky grinned.
"This way, we all get titles,"

Guard confided. "What am I,
Grand Vizier?"
For the future, the Kingston
Trio plans a trip to Europe for
personal appearances and the
broadening experience of travel,
as well as to look for new material.
Also, they are considering doing
a movie. Two scripts are ready for
their consideration, but the Trio
is in no hurry.

"We don't exactly 'need the
money," Nick averred.
Do they want to do serious dra-
matic parts? "Why not? It's a
challenge," Guard commented.
Serious Turn
"He's playing a serious role
right now," Bob winked.
Also, the group plans to record
a series of soft drink advertise-;
ments. The first will be based on

their latest hit single, and will
start, "It takes a thirsty man-..:.'
The campaign will include maga-
zine and billboard advertising as
Nicky's wife and Dave's wife
and baby daughter are staying on
the coast, while Bob's wife is
"down in Georgia on the planta-
tion - she has to mind the place
while I'm gone."
The Trio travels at a whirlwind
pace, working one-night appear-
ances at colleges, jazz festivals and
and private parties (recently they
pocketed a cool $5,000 for playing
a coming-out party for the daugh-
ter of a Texas oilman.)

A motion to establish a council
committee to study and undertake
positive action on the urban reha-
bilitation problem was defeated at ;
last night's City Council meeting.
In making the motion, ,Council-
man Richard Dennard recalled
that when yIayor Cecil 0. Creal
vetoed the Urban Renewal plan
this summer, he had proposed an
alternate plan, and asked what
the mayor intended to do.
Mayor Creal said that the com-
mittee for voluntary rehabilita-
tion he had proposed has not defi-
nitely been set up, but an area
committee has "been working ac-
tively in a great many places."
A report will be given to the
council early in November.
The motion for the council com-
mittee which was to study ways
to establish a uniform housing
code was defeated 8-3.
It was supported, however, by
three junior councilmen recently
appointed to the Council.
