avert a Ruling that the mills must go back to their owners the judge declared that law is the legal tool at hand for heading off a strike If his ruling stands it strikes down the whole theory that the president has inherent emergency powers not specifically stated in the constitution It also stops a pay raise the government was about ready to order over management's head The reference to the law got a quick echo in con- gress where several members called for immediate action to get an injunction under that act Among the first to make that recommendation Senators Hoey P N and Representatives Halleck Keating R N Y and Shafer R Favors Impeachment Shafer is author of one of the several impeach the of the steel situation an effort which even the backers have conceded had little chance without
