Within two hours, a Congolese chauffeur was arrested but a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy said questioning of him had pro- vided no useful information. The chauffeur was held in cus- tody by U.K. Nigerian police, and a search was launched for Stog- ner's Congolese house boy and his night watchman. U.N. and Congolese police were Investigating the killing No weap- on was found, but plaster casts were taken of footprints found outside Stogner's quarters. Nearly 500 Congolese troops en- circled the Pare Hembise residen- tial section of Leopoldville within an hour of the attack.

Top Negotiators Meet In Steel Labor Talks PITTSBURGH negotiators met today in their first formal session aimed at reaching a new labor contract for the basic steel industry. President David J. McDonald of the United Steel- workers Union sat down in a summit bargaining session with Conrad Cooper of U. S. Steel Corp., chief in- dustry negotiator. They met with aides while union and industry teams representing 11 major steel producers continued sep- arate meetings. Cooper and McDonald repealed their hopes they can reach a fast agreement but had no other com- ment. It seemed clear, however, they had gotten together beforehand, not once but frequently, and al- ready have pretty well worked over their area of differences to- ward early new arrangements to succeed the industry labor pacts expiring June 30.
