to agree to what must be classed as a cheap settlement in recent contract negotiations expecting the steel companies would go along without raising prices Informed sources said that US Steel Chairman Roger M Blough with whom the administration dealt through Secretary of Labor i uuuufcu secretary 01 Labor PUc Arthur J Goldberg never gave a pledge there would be no price increase They said the adminis tration and Steelworkers Union President David J McDonald felt this was implicit Now that Big Steel whose prices are usually adopted by other ma jor steel producers has hoisted price levels it is hardly likely either labor or management will pay much future attention to pleas for economic moderation What union for example will pass up a wage increase as did the a govern ment argument that it would con tribute to wageprice without ironclad advance assur ance that its management coun terpart hold the price line If unions ignore moderation what industries are going to feel impelled in that direction Many other presidents have urged wageprice moderation But Kennedy differed from the others m going about it more militantly and suggesting certain guidelines These suggestions it now appears are going to be ignored ary effect Senate Democratic 1 e ad e r Mike Mansfield told reporters he understood the price increase would mean a million boost in the defense budget alone The
