Says Many Disputes Settled He took the occasion also to note that wage questions in rubber and telephone industries had been settled, strictly on col- lective bargaining bssis and in a manner satisfactory to both sides. This, Mr. Truman commented, was done without any ballyhoo. Furthermore. the president said, there have been hundreds of such settlements which have received no notice, settlements by the CIO, AFL. and indepen- dent unions. Mr. Truman remarked it waa too Rad that the people who do the right thing can't get as much publicity as those who constant- ly run to the newspapers for Not Intervening In CM Strike Answering n question, the president said flatly he would not intervene in the General Motors strike, as suggested br Detroit city officials.

Mr. Truman reaffirmed a White House announcement that the cents an settlement for basic steel did not necessarily set the pattern for the entire industry. He said that the 18V4 cents ap- plied only to basic steel and assumed that their settlements would be worked out through negotiations. A number of fabricators al- ways have followed basic steel. Mr. Truman said, and there is no reason why they need not do so again. Others have not followed steel, he added, and there Is no reason either why' they should not follow their own course.
