N. Delays Balloting on Council Seat UNITED NATIONS UP) Efforts to fill a vacant seat in the U.N. Security Council to- day were suspended until next Monday after 25 ballots failed to break a stubborn East- West deadlock. Communist Poland contin- ued to lead western-supported Turkey throughout the two1 days of secret voting in the: 82-nation General Assembly. It was not able, however, toj muster the required two- thirds majority. A few delegates tried to start a compromise switch tol Yugoslavia, but this failed gain momentum. It was then! agreed to drop the balloting to permit consultation among U.N. diplomats. 'I: THE VOTE ON the 25th and final ballot was 43 for Poland and 36 for Turkey. This represented only a slight shift from Monday and was exactly the same as the ballot, which opened this! morning's session. j The election of Poland toi the Economic and Social! Council Monday failed to pro- duce the major switch some western diplomats expected. These delegates had believed that many countries would not feel like supporting Po- land for scats in two major U.N. councils. IN AN ATTEMPT to head off any such switch, the So- viet Union issued a statement urging Poland's supporters to stand firm. The United States has con- tended ever since Poland be- came a candidate for the two councils that she should ,-ejected the con hold both seats at once and] supported her for ECOSOC.

McDonald today challenged leaders of the steel industry to sit down with him and negotiate a settlement of the three-month-old steel strike. "I personally would like to sit down with these chief executive officers, the men who have the responsibility, and talk out the Mc- Donald said. He complained of being unable to reach any top industry officials. McDonald made his state- ments to President Eisenhow- :r's fact-finding board which is racing the calendar in an attempt either to settle the dispute or issue a report to the President by midnight Friday. v THE PRESIDENT instruct- ed the fact-finders to seek first of all a settlement be- tween labor and management. That failing, the government will go into court and seek an injunction that would halt the strike for an 80-day "cool- ing-off" period. Before McDonald testified, the chairman of the fact-find- ing board sharply criticized both sides for failing to reach a common ground. He said the whole process of peaceful negotiation is endangered by the strike. Monday night, McDonald told two General Motors offi- cials that they could end the strike next week if they brought pressure on the steel industry. McDonald charged at to- :lay's board hearing that iieetings with industry offi- cials so far have been merely .1 "public relations game."
