United Steel- workers Union has called a strike of its members for Janu- ary strike which industry spokesmen estimate would affect more than 40 per cent of the na- tion's workers 'through its effect on .related industries. The President told his news con- ference that the General Motors lact finding board would be. headed by, Judge Walter P. Stacy, chair- man of the recent labor-manage- ment conference. Other members are Lloyd K. Garrison, chairman of :he War Labor Board, and Milton president of Kansas State College.

His action came'in the face of direct opposition of leaders striking C.I.O. United Auto Workers involved in the. General Motors dispute and of the CIO United Steelworkers. _ The President's proposal for fact-finding procedures received new support today from Labor Secretary Schwcllenbach who told the Senate I.abor Committee that legislation embodying such pro- posals was "critically needed'' the "national interest."
