BRIDGE WASHINGTON (AP> — Big Steel’s drive for a KFa-ton print increase collapsed Friday in tha face of President Kennedy * sive campaign to hold the nomic line, and Kennedy “The people oi the United StaUi are most gratified." The President had bitterly Be» nounced the price boosts initiated! Tuesday by the bellwether U.S. Steel Corp., and had marshalled all the power and prestige of (ft administration to force a rollback« His payoff came Friday whit U.S. Steel, yielding to this puhH$ pressure and to competition front within the industry, did at abdff face and wiped out the price crease. Kennedy had gone to Virgin!« to spend Friday night and Satn£ day inspecting the Atlantic Flev and to watch Navy and Marim Corps maneuvers. Basing his statement or the word that the No. 1 and No. 1 steel producers had canceled their announced price increases, he ib* sued this statement just before climbing aboard the command ship Northampton for the night: "The people of the United State* are most gratified by the annouee-ments of Bethlehem and VX Steel companies that their pro* posed price increases art being rescinded. "In taking the action at thii time they are serving the public interest and their actions will assist our common objectives of strengthening our country and our economy *’ Coming out on deck a little In* ter to watch passing ships and the Hampton Roads landscape the ship headed to sea. he to newsmen: "I think the other* will all follow now. They can’t afford not to." This prediction seemed certain of fulfillment. One after another, lesser firms which had announced price boosts canceled them hi line with the pattern of the three major producers: U.S. Steel, Bethlehem. and Republic Steel Corp. They gave essentially the same reason — “the competitive situation.” It was Bethlehem which rtarted the rollback in midafternoon. A few hours later Big Steel fob lowed >uit.
