Coming three months ahead of the June 30 expiration date of ex- listing contracts, the reported agreement would head off both a steel strike and a potentially dangerous rush to stockpile steel against the possibility of such a strike.

Such travel by wives and children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine officers and men was suspended nearly six months ago at a time when the Berlin crisis mili- tary buildup was in full swing. The Defense Department said then that the require- ments for moving regular Army reinforcements Europe made necessary the suspension of dependent travel. This troop movement is long past, but the Kennedy administration has kept the dependent travel suspension in force as one way of cut- ting down the still bother- some drain of gold and dol- lars.
