McDonald had maintainec during the. early days of the strike that an injunction would solve nothing. fight against the in the high court 'rom several days to weeks depending on the condition and type of individual mills. c ARTHUR J. GOLDBERG, who fought the union's un- successful njunction said he has no plans to seek A rehearing. "The Supreme Court has Goldberg said. 'However strongly one may disagree, the judgment of the court is the law of the land and must be obeyed. Under the circumstances of the case, no purpose would be served by filing a petition for rehearing." Earlier, Goldberg had been quoted by the National Broad- casting Co. new service that "from the Supreme Court the only appeal is to God." THE COURT'S ruling was given under the injunction provision of the Taft-Hartle'y Law which provides for an 80-day cooling-off period in prolonged strikes. The court ruled only on that emergency provision of the Labor Rela- tions Act. The Taft-Hartle'y Law' calls for efforts by management and labor to settle their dis- agreement during the 80-day cooling off period. However, one government (Continued Page A-3, Col. 1) Steelworkers Express Mixed Edict Reaction PITTSBURGH ing Steelworkers expressed mixed emotions today when they learned the Supreme< Court had upheld an injunc-' tion ordering them back to the mills for an 80-day cool- ing off period. There was mixed reaction, too, from persons who first learned of the court action from bold headlines in extra editions of newspapers. Tony Amantea, 56, of Pitts- burgh, a motor inspector at the U. S. Steel Corp.'s Home- stead works, said he will be glad to get back to work. -f S :l: "THE OLD bankroll needs it more than anything said Amantea. "I wish we were going back on a new contract, though. With the injunction, we'll just be get- ting warmed up and we'll have to quit again." Mrs. Amantea declared: "I'm glad because it will give us a chance to catch up. We have three kids to feed and other Steelworkers have even more. After all, half a loaf of bread is better than none at all." Mike Mihalov, 25, of U. S. Steel's Clairton works, wasn't happy about the court order. 8 V if. "I'D RATHER have a set he said. "This in- junction gives the steel com- panies an unfair advantage. Sure I'm glad to have a bank account for 80 days, but what happens after the 80 days are up? The companies are hap- py but we aren't." Jim Peterson, also of the Clairton works, just said he'll do what the union wants him to. "I can use the said Peterson. "But I'm not too pleased with the way things went." i A RETIRED advertising man picked up an extra edi- tion of a newspaper at a cigar store and said: "Well, I didn't think this would come until Monday. I guess the court acted today because the stock market wasn't open." A clerk hurrying to work in a m i d t o w n department store said: "Boy, this should give us a lift for Christmas." the Supreme today sending back to the President Told of T-H Decision WASHINGTON dent Eisenhower was advised promptly of Court ruling Steelworkers mills. He expressed hope production would resume as soon as possible. Press Secretary James C. Hagerty said the President also expressed hope that "both sides, realizing their obligation to the United States, continue to negotiate and reach a settlement of their differences."
