Strikes Cripple
LONDON W) - Spreading factory strikes hit this teeming manu-
facturing capital yesterday, paralyzing more and more of the indus-
try on which Britain lives.
A half million men in about 1,000 Greater London plants offi-
cially joined the million "engineering" workers who walked out a
week ago, mainly in Scotland and northern England.
Two hundred thousand shipmakers began the third week of their
w y strike, which has silenced 70 shipyards around Britain.
Neither side in the wage disputes heldoutnany prospect of peace
moves over the weekend. Negotiations the past week broke down in

Question Posed
Sen. McClellan was asked at a
news conference whether his Sen-
ate committee, conducting a far-
flung probe of racketeering in the
labor management field, had of-
fered to cooperate with the AFL-
CIO investigation.
He replied 'ro formal offer has

operate with them in every way in
the world in every effort they make
to eliminate the unwholesome ele-

The executive council of the 40-
union Confederation of Shipbuild-
ing and Engineering Unions,
which is masterminding both
strikes, will consider the govern-
ment request Tuesday -- the day,
before the Court of Inquiry opens
its hearings.
Unless a settlement is reached
the coming week, the unions
threaten to pull out by next week-
end another million factory work-
ers ranging from unskilled hands
to machine operators.
.There has been no official state-
ment on the economic repercus-
sions of the strikes so far. The
factories involved account for 40
per cent. of Britain's exports.
In the shipyards, work on 300
ships is halted.
Employers have expressed fear
that new orders from abroad may
pass them by."
Will Affect Work
A spokesman for De Havilland
Aircraft Works, where the stop-
page will affect work on the new
version of the Comet jet airliner,
told newsmen: "This may be
throwing away Britain's. last
chance of getting into the jet air-
liner market."
American Capital Airlines has
ordered 14 of the new Comets.
The unions originally demanded
a 10 per cent wage increase be-
cause of the rising cost of liv-
ing. They also maintained the
workers were entitled to a bigger
share of industry's profits.
Employers said the claims were
"unjustified" and that they could-
n't afford the pay hikes.
The unions rejected a shipyard
counter offer of 5 per cent, subject
to a 12-month standstill in furth-
er wage claims and a union prom-
ise to eliminate what the employ-
ers said were restrictive practices
hampering output. The unions al-
so rejected factory " employer of-
fers of a 3%/2 per cent pay boost.

LONDON ( P)-A right wing Con-
servative revolt menaced Prime
Minister Harold Macmillan's 10-
week-old government yesterday.
The dramatic resignation of Lord'
Salisbury over the release of Arch-
bishop Makarios of Cyprus from
exile brought the threat of trouble
on a wide front to the dismayed
Conservative party leaders wait-
ed apprehensively for a parliamen-
tary debate tomorrow which will
probe into the reasons for Lord
Salisbury's decision to resign as
Lord President of the Council, gov-
ernment leader of the House of
Lords and as political controller
of atomic energy development.
Salisbury, known as the king-
maker for the decisive role he
played in making Macmillan Prime
Minister, openly disagreed with the
government's action in freeing
Archbishop Makarios.
Bermuda is the topic of tomor-
row's debate. The Prime Minister
is to lead off the discussion.
Many Conservative members of
Parliament, said the London Eve-
ning News, "now want to know for
certain what many already suspect
-that the decision to release the
archbishop was part of a deal be-
tween Mr. Macmillan and Presi-
dent Eisenhower at Bermuda, in
return for which the United States
would join the military committee
of the Baghdad Pact to strengthen
the shaky Western hold on the
Middle East."

Prof. Eldersveld implied the local GOP had magnified the issue
that University students might not be counted in the next census,

Census Bureau will change its
1950 policy."
He was pleased Republicans had
passed a resolution urging the
Bureau to maintain its present
policy, but called this move a
"small step" in solving Ann Ar-
bor's financial problems.
Confessing he was "not a rich
man" and couldn't make a trip
to Washington (as Mayor Brown
did), he communicated the es-
sence of a telegram he received
from Sen. Patrick McNamara (D-
Mich.): "Dr. Burgess (Director of
the Bureau) states that requests
to return to the old system of as-
signing students to their home
town for census purposes are not
of major proportions and thus the
Bureau is inclined to continue the
present system."
Brown could not be reached
for comment.
"Surely the Council should in-
struct our present mayor to push
for the passage of this bill. I say
'instruct' because the mayor has
demonstrated he needs some in-
structions regarding his lobbying
activities for Ann Arbor," com-
mented Prof. Eldersveld.
He also recommended the City
apply pressure at Lansing to get
a census taken between 1960 and

and that a "wide-awake" City ad-
ministration "would be active

WASHINGTON - Secretary of
State John Foster Dulles said yes-

He also declared that Red China

against other countries.
