I n Urges Top Priority For Tax Withholding Plan Steel Mills Active With Halt in Strike 50 Per Cent of Industry's Men Return to Jobs Pittsburgh Steel mills throughout the country hum- med with activity today as the giant industry gradually step- ped up operations following a court-ordered end of the 116- day nationwide steel strike. More than 50 per cent of the basic steel industry's workers are back on the job, and the rest are expected to be back at work by the week- end. Mills are turning out fairly large tonnages of new steel. Only-five days after the U.S. Ike Reconvenes Board Of Inquiry in Strike Washington Presi- dent Eisenhower today re- convened his board of in- quiry in the dispute. He again expressed hope that both sides in the con- troversy will continue nego- tiations and reach a settle- ment as soon as possible.

After the meeting, Appleton Mayor Clarence A. Mitchell called the report "silly and ridiculous" and told May he was "completely out of order by, making such a vicious at- tack on the city of Appleton." He said May should have ex- plained funds for an increased police force and a traffic en- gineer would have to come from property taxes. May said according to the National Safety council traf- fic inventory, which studies the traffic problems of indi- vidual communities and com- pares them with communities of the same size, Appleton rates tenth out of 12 Wiscon- sin cities in the to population group.

Wisconsin state department of agriculture experts and cranberry industry spokesmen already have assured Fox Cities housewives the berries on their store shelves are not contaminated as charged. In Wisconsin, Red Owl, Krambo, National Tea, the and the Godfrey com- pany, wholesalers for Sentry and IGA stores, have in- structed their -outlets not to sell cranberries in any form until the case is cleared up.

Nelson will be extraordinarily lucky or will show himself to be a powerful political salesman if he puts through the legisla- ture the tax program he de- scribed today to the lawmak- ers as "stop-gap." The odds are heavy that the lawmakers will cut to rib- bons the withholding bill for income tax collections that they spurned earlier this year, and which the governor] admits he prefers as a means of getting himself out of the financial difficulties that con- front him. GOP Reluctance The Nelson alternative, suggesting a revision upward of personal income tax rates and higher taxes on banks, building and loan associa- tions, tobacco and cigarets has only a slightly more cheerful prospect. The legis- lature has repeatedly in the past refused to enact some of those propositions separately. Besides, there .is a political reluctance among the Repub- licans to consider any kind of "stop gap" money raising now, and a strong inclination Turn to Page 7, Col. 1 Garcia Party Trails But Gains Rapidly Manila President Carlos P.
