union employes an opportunity to buy company stock controlled by
the Ford family for half a century.
But the CIO United Auto Workers, demanding a guaranteed

unacceptable" and said it fails to provide workers protection against
the insecurity of unemployment. A

is a resurrection of an inadequate

al Motors had in effect in 1939 and
had to scrap' because it was un-
workable and impracticable."
The union's rejection came only
two hours after Ford placed the
counterproposal on the contract
bargaining table. The UAW's bit-
ter response marked the first pub-
lic dispute since the auto indus-
try's significant labor negotiations
began last month.
John S. Bugas, Ford vice presi-
dent, called the offer "undoubtedly
as challenging and comprehensive
a single package offer as any ever
made in our industry." The "pack-
age" included a number of other
benefits, and was conditional on

LONDON (I1)-Prime Minister Anthony Eden and the Conserva-
tive party scored a smashing victory in yesterday's election.
They won a new five-year term with an indicated House of Com-
mons majority of 50 or more seats, against the scant 17-seat margin
they had in the last Parliament.
Morgan Phillips, secretary of the opposition Labor party, con-
ceded the party's defeat at 3:15 this morning.
The voters dealt a severe blow to Clement Attlee's Labor forces,
who won the popular vote in the 1951 election but lost out in the
tabulation of House of Commons "
seats. This time the Conservatives
ran ahead in popular vote, as well.
