But it stood firm against allowing international inspection teams on its soil. The.action opened new prospects of East-West talks on the deadlocked issue, although it did not resolve any of the differences blocking a treaty. If agreement can be reached on a test ban past, President Kennedy has an- nounced he will cancel next month's scheduled start on a new series of U. S. atmospheric tests. The Russian announcement was made by Deputy So- viet Foreign Minister Valerian Zorin at a news confer- ence.

Brock said the union is asking for a "reasonable increase" in wages and a new contract with the local plant, "similar to the one we have with Lock Joint in other places, such as New York." Economic Issues Harvey Johnson, Lock Joint manager here, said he felt the is- sues involved in the strike were economic, and affirmed the com- pany's readiness to negotiate with the union. He added, "We feel we are presently paying good wages for this area and are interested in continuing to pay top wages." Johnson said it was difficult to estimate the actual number of workers out on strike. Brock said approximately 95 per cent of the Lock Joint force was involved, exclusive of foremen and office" personnel. 'Good Turnout' Johnson, however, said that the plant is continuing to make pipe and that there was a "real turn- out" of workers this morning. The plant manager said that addition- al men are being hired. "We intend to continue opera- tions here on a full-time Johnson said.
