Judge Gives
Restraining
Command
Order Issued
To Bar Damage
A temporary restraining order
curbing picketing of wildcat strik-
ers at the General Motors' Willow
Run plant was issued last night by
Circuit Judge James R. Breakey,
Jr.
The order was issued "to prevent
irreparable damage" to the trans-
mission plant and prevent tres-
passing and to "prevent what ap-
pear to be threatened breaches of
the peace," according to Judge
Breakey.
He said the defendants in the
case were restrained from prohib-
iting the entrance or exit of any-
one from the plant which has been
under an unauthorized strike for
six days.
Named in Injunction
Seven officers and 22 strikers of
the international union, United
Auto Worker-CIO and Local 735
were specifically named in the in-
junction.
UAW attorney Harold Crane-
field told the court that he was
not prepared to file answering
affidavits, because he had receiv-
ed Judge Breakey's notice only
last night.
He reported, however, that the
union would offer to show that
there had been no breach of con-
tract on the part of the interna-
tional. Cranefield also said the
union would show the strike was
not authorized, and that the pick-
'ets had. ignored union discipline.
"Don't Represent Pickets"
Cranefield said, "We do not rep-
resent the people in their picket-
ing . . . They are on a frolic of
their own."
Local 735's attorney, Dean Robb,
said he would take a position sim-
ilar to Cranefield's.
Judge Breakey established that
"the international union is sole
bargaining agent for those who are
purported to have struck."
Affidavits signed by 13 employes
who said they had been restricted
from entering the plant were offer-
ed by GM attorneys.
Fifteen Days
The local, the international, and
other named defendants have 15
days in which to answer the com-
plaints.
Included in the affidavits, were
charges by employes that pickets
threatened to harm their automo-
biles if they crossed picket lines.
According to Cranefield, unles
the action is disposed of before the
15 day deadline, the Union would
present arguments on its behalf
The restraining order is in effec
"until further order of the court.'

Security Study
Democrats, Republicans Support
Bill for Bi-Partisan Commissidn
WASHINGTON (P)-The Senate yesterday passed a bill to set up
a bi-partisan commission to make a thorough study of President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's federal employe security program before the
presidential elections next year.
In a brief debate before approving the plan on a voice vote, both
Democrats and Republicans voiced hopes that the study could be
made in a "dispassionate," non-political atmosphere.
The whole question of personnel security In the government was
a lively issue in last year's congressional campaign. And the fight
has continued here after the elections.
Until recently both President Eisenhower and Atty. Gen. Herbert
Brownell have said they felt there

AEC Bill Passed
WASHINGTON - The House
passed without opposition and sent
to the Senate yesterday a $267,-
709,000 construction program for
the Atomic Energy Commission.
It did not give President Eisen-
hower authority to build the 21
million dollar nuclear-powered ex-
hibit ship he has asked to demon-
strate peaceful uses of atomic en-
ergy to other nations of the world.
Instead, the bill authorizes

commercial uses.

Ti to Acceptst
Invitation
'To Moscow z
C
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia 3) -
President Tito has accepted an in-
vitation to visit Moscow, return-
ing the recent Khrushchev-Bul-t
ganin visit to Yugoslavia.
This announcement was made
yesterday by the semi-official Yu-
gopress, immediately after Yugo-
slavia and the Western Big Three
had pledged their "continued co-
operation." Ambassadors of the
United States, Britain and France
have been meeting with Yugo-
slavia's acting foreign minister, '
Srdjan Prica.
The invitation to Tito was ex-
tended June 2 at the conclusion
of the visit here by Soviet Pre-
mier Nikolai Bulganin and Soviet
Communist party boss Nikita S.
Krushchev.
It will be Tito's first visit to
Moscow since the Russian-domi-
nated Cominform ousted his Com-
munist party in 1948 for "nation-
alist tendencies."
There was no hint that the
Western Powers were informed in
advance of the invitation to the:
Moscow trip, but it was not re-
ceived in semiofficial Yugoslav
quarters as a complete surprise.

to go along with the Democratic
proposal for the inquiry.
Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-
Minn.) told the Senate yesterdayJ
"security is not a partisan issue."
Sen. Humphrey and Sen. Stennis
(D-Miss.) sponsored'the proposal
for the commission.
The proposal now goes to the
House, where the Judiciary Com-
mittee already has approved a
similar commission plan. Rep..
Walter (D-Pa), its sponsor, pre-
dicted House approval without
major opposition.
The Humphrey-Stennis propos-
al would create a 12-member com-
mission with four members to be
selected by the President, four by
the vice president as presiding of-
ficer of the Senate, and four by the
speaker of the House. Six mem-
bers would be Democrats, six Re-
publicans.
Potter heads
Talks on Aging
No one thinks the federal gov-
ernment can solve the problem of
the aged alone, Senator Charles E..
Potter (R-Mich.) said last night.
Speaking as moderator of the
first panel in the University's
eighth annual Conference on Aging
in the Union Ballroom, Sen. Potter
said, however, "The federal gov-
ernment is the best agency to
gather the necessary information."
The following discussion center-
ed on the results of surveys taken
by different government bureaus
and what they have accomplishedj
so far.
Discussion topic for the panel
was "Resources of the Federal

against too many machines being
used, work speed ups, and irregular
hours.
Many of the picketing men com-
plained about disregarded trade
lines-maintenance men were re-
quested to do the jobs of electri-
cians, skilled tool grinders were
asked to do the tasks of unskilled

tool sharpeners. "We want trade
lines respected," was the frequent
cry of pickets who had been car-
rying strike signs and guarding
plant gates for 20-hour periods.

The CIO United Steel Workers
Wage Policy Committee yesterday
authorized a nation-wide strike,
but union President David J. Mc-
Donald said, "Don't get the idea we
are strike-happy."
The 170-member committee vot-
ed unanimously to give McDonald
authority to strike the basic steel
industry at midnight Thursday It
an agreement is not reached on
union demands for a substantial
wage increase.
In Washington, government of-
ficials in a complete change of
mind now feel the chances are dim
for averting an industrywide steel
strike this week.
Expected Peaceful Settlement
This is a switch from their view
of a few days ago that steel would
follow the auto industry's pattern
of peaceful labor contract settle-
ments.
One official with inside informa-
tion on the steel wage talks told a
reporter:
"We are pessimistic about a
strike being prevented."
Steel industry sources were
ported still hopeful, however, that
an agreement could be reached
without a walkout. There was some
speculation here that the steel in-
dustiy may offer some form of
guaranteed layoff pay such as ne-
gotiated with major auto produc-
ers.
Watchful Already
Government officials were advis-
ed to watch for some early steel-
worker layoffs beginning last night,
The earliest a strike could begin
is midnight Thursday.
Steel mills usually like to start
banking their furnaces 72 hours
ahead of any known walkout. They
can rush the shutdown process it
48 hours or less. So rather wide:
spread layoffs are expected begin
ning tonight and Wednesday, iI
there is no improvement in the
picture.
The key to the steel talks is the
20-cent hourly price tag put on la-
bor benefits recently won in th
auto industry settlement witi
General Motors and Ford. Tha
was the value put on the auto dea
by Walter Reuther, president o:
the CIO and the CIO United Aut
Workers.
Will Refuse Less Than 20 Cents
McDonald, president of the stee
workers, sometimes a rival of Reu
ther, has told steel producers flat
ly he will refuse any proposa
smaller than the 20 cents Reuthe
claims.
The wage policy members als
approved rejection of Big Steel'
offer to increase wages an averag
of 10 cents an hour and an offe
by Inland Steel Co. to increas
wages about 10/2 cents an hour.
Shortly after the committee ac,
tion, U.S. Steel Corp., the worldsi
biggest steel producer, announce
that its top negotiator, Vice Presi
dent John Stephens, would meet
with McDonald at 11 a.m. today.
