The nine justices stepped up to the bench at a.m. to face a courtroom packed attorneys, newsmen, and spectators. Outside a line of probably 300 persons stood waiting in the hope of getting in. Arthur J. Goldberg, chief counsel of the United Steel- workers Union, opened the argument, attacking the legal- ity of the injunction issued by Federal Judge Herbert P. Sorg in Pittsburgh Oct. 21. Solicitor General L. Lee Rankin had the assignment to answer for the government. Shortly before the start the special, hearing, the the court's clerk said John C. Bane, Pittsburgh attorney, would argue briefly on behalf of the steel com- panies. Under court rules, Goldberg opened with an account of the background of the strike, 113 days old today, and what has happened in lower courts. No Time Limit Set I At the opening of the hearing! Chief Justice Warren said no time limit was set on either -side and the chief justice said the court felt the parties would take no longer than was necessary to present the issues properly. At issue, in arguments before the court, was the validity of an injunction already issued under emergency provisions of the Taft- Hartley labor law. It directs the workers to halt their strike dur- ing an 80-day cooling off period, but it doesn't become effective un- til the Supreme Court rules. There was no firm Indication how soon that would be. It was believed likely that legal argu- ments would be completed today, but no time limit was fixed. The court's ruling could come any time after the arguments end. i Could Announce in Brief The court could, if it chose, an- nounce its decision in a brief or- der without waiting to write a for- mal opinion. The opinion could be filed later. Federal mediators met incon- clusively Monday with both union and management negotiators and called further sessions for Wednes- day. Chief Mediator Joseph Finnegan said he hadn't decided whether to arrange separate or joint meetings then. No sessions were scheduled today because of the court hearings. President David J. McDonald of the Steelworkers Union said Mon- day's meetings made "absolutely no headway." R. Conrad Cooper, chief industry negotiator, agreed Turn STEEL on Page 2 Court Upholds Laws on Dairy Trade Practices MADISON 1955 laws restricting trade practices of dair- ies selling milk and ice cream at wholesale in Wisconsin were up- held by the state Supreme Court1 today. j The decision, written fay Justice!
