2. Undersecretary of State

He told a news conference that
this proposal-which Russia has
refused to accept-"remains the

3. A top general indicated that
military planners already have
gone to work on new ways to use
the atom bomb-if the need arises.
In a summation report, Ges. Jacob
L. Devers, chief of the Army
Ground Forces, recommended that
defense strategists give "further
study" to the possibility of using
the bomb for direct troop support.
As the tempo of the atomic
talks quickened, the prime ques-

get more uranium from which
atom bombs are made?

'Trying to Force
Strike' - Murray
PITTSBURGH-(P) -Big steel
offered a 10-cent peace package
to its workers but got only union
scorn in return.
Negotiations bogged down with.
the nation facing a steel strike to-
morrow midnight. Federal media-
tors again rushed into the pic-
ture and one small steel company
broke off negotiations entirely.
A DAY OF rapid fire action
brought these developments:
1. Industry leader United
States Steel Corporation pro-
posed to settle the pension-in-
surance war by paying up to 10
cents an hour per man as its
share of social security pro-
grams. Employes were asked to
contribute about $2 to $3
monthly for insurance and un-
specified amounts for pensions
and to agree to a year's contract
extension to April 30, 1951.
2. CIO United Steelworkers
made no formal answer but presi-
dent Philip Murray issued a state-
ment insisting the industry follow
presidential board recommenda-
tions for company financed pen-
sions and insurance. He accused
steel of deliberately trying to force
a strike. This was taken to mean
flat rejection of big steel's offer.
4. CYRUS CHING, director of
the Federal Mediation Service,
sent aides to 45 key steel negotiat-
ing sessions in an effort to hasten
a settlement. He indicated it was
just about his last maneuver.
5. The Crucible Steel Company
broke off negotiations with the
union, saying it could not afford'
to take part in a pension-insur-
ance program regardless of wheth-
er employes chipped in.
