! WSB Requests 90,089 Oil Workers
To End Eight-day Walkout at Once
Compiled by Valera Vierra
(From the wires of the United Press)
'I lie government lias stepped into the nationwide oil strike.
'J he Wage Stabilization Board has asked the 90,000 striking oil
workers to end their eight-day walkout immediately.
. Board chairman Nathan Feinsinger’s message asks both
sides to renew bargaining with the help of federal mediators.
The oil unions have agreed to attend the meeting May 13.
If the strike continues to threaten oil supplies needed by the
armed forces, President Truman could set up a fact-finding
•board as the first step toward a 15-day no-strike injunction
under the Taft-Hartley law.
In the Florida and Ohio primaries ...
... voters turned out in near record breaking numbers. Senator
Taft took an expected early lead in his battle for Ohio's 56 Republican
.presidential nominating votes. Taft is expected to move well ahead of
Eisenhower in delegates after the results of the Tuesday primaries
are known. In Florida, Senator Richard Russell of Georgia was leading
i Senator Estes Kefauver of Tennessee in the Democratic race.
Irving S. Olds has retired ...
... as chairman of the board of the United States Steel Corporation.
^Benjamin Fairless, president of U.S. Steel will succeed him and also
continue in his present job. U.S. Steel thus changes executive heads
1 at a time when it is embroiled in a dispute with the CIO steelworkers
t union over wages, and with the administration over prices.
Wayne Morse returned to Oregon Tuesday ...
t ... for two political reasons. He wants to campaign for delegate to
the Republican national convention and at the same time to tell people
•not to vote for him in Oregon’s presidential primary. Morse said the
filing of his own name in Oregon’s May 16 primary was political
'trickery—as he put it—“by the Taft people.” Morse is a strong Eisen
'$5,000,000 of stolen Army goods ...
.. . has passed through the hands of a Korean black market, accord
ing to a report released by the Senate preparedness subcommittee. The
.black market in Korea has flourished despite U.S. army efforts to
stamp it out. The Defense group said that last year and up to Feb. 9
.of this year, over five-million-dollars worth of goods has been stolen
from the U.S. army in Korea.
One billion dollars was cut...
* ... from President Truman’s foreign aid bill of nearly eight billion,
by a vote of the house Foreign Affairs committee.
61 rescued seamen were returned
i '■ ... to New York Tuesday aboard the carrier Wasp. The men were
* survivors of the destroyer Hobson which went down with 176 of her
crewmen in an unexplained collision at sea eleven days ago.
Communists have rejected the Allied offer...
... to trade the 12,000 prisoners in their hands for the 70,000 Allied
held Reds who have agreed to return to Red control, it was disclosed
by General Mathew Ridgway in Tokyo.
! Price ceilings may go up ...
I ... on everything the American consumer buys, under a new court
1 ruling. The ruling by the Emergency Court of Appeals would permit
distributors to apply for -higher ceilings under the Capehart amend
ment to the Economic Controls law. That means wholesalers and re
f tailers could seek to add to their pre-Korean war prices their increased
costs from June 24, 1950 to last July 26.
The new American ambassador to Russia ...
. .George Kennan, arrived in Moscow Tuesday to take up residence.
1 Kennan has been an off-and-on visitor to Russia for almost 20 years,
■but this time he expects to settle down for a while.
' Charles E. Wilson sharply criticized ...
... the action of the wage stabilization board in the steel dispute
fcin Washington Tuesday. It was the board's recommendation—of a 27
cent-hourly wage increase—that led to Wilson’s resignation as mobili
zation chief. Tuesday he told the House Labor committee that the
L steel workers are not entitled to more than one third of that increase,
(n recommending far more, he said the wage board went far beyond
the limits of a proper wage and price stabilization policy. Wilson told
the committee Congress should take away the board’s power to recom
mend settlements in labor disputes.
A riot in San Francisco's county jail...
. ... in San Bruno, Calif., was staged for four hours by approximately
•250 prisoners. News of the riot was held back for 24 hours by Sheriff
Dan Gallagher, who was in charge. Windows were broken, mattresses
were burned, and floors were flooded with water. Two trustees were
beaten. The rioting ended when Gallagher promised to improve food
and bath facilities.
General Eisenhower is in Paris ...
»... after finishing a farewell visit to the Mediterranean flank of his
Allied command. He flew in from Rome Tuesday and will leave Thurs
day for Copenhagen and Oslo. The visits are part of a series of fare
well tours the general is making of North Atlantic capitals before re
turning home June 1.
