S. Dis- trict Court today for an in- junction halting the 98-day steel strike. The United Steel- workers Union petitioned the court to deny an injunction and a hearing opened at p.m. Judge Herbert P. Sorg pre- sided at the hearing, called to determine whether a restrain- ing order should be issued sending the striking steelworkers back to work. The Taft-Hartley Act pro- vides that labor disputes may )e terminated for an 80-day cooling-off period if the na- tional welfare is endangered. THE GOVERNMENT'S jetition said continuation of :he nation-wide labor dispute would "imperial the national lealth and safety." On the other hand, the union petilion filed by At- :orney Ernest G. Nassar argued that the strike does not now endanger the naj .ion's economy as interpreted under the Taft-Hartley Law. U. S. Atty. Hubert 1.

The acting commander of the Portsmouth Naval Base said today damage "apparently in- tentional" to a number of electrical cables on the nu- clear submarine USS Nautilus has been discovered during the ship's overhaul. Capl. Carl A. Johnson said the Navy is conducting an in- vestigation and the FBI has been notified. In Washington, the Navy said the damage was first dis- covered Oct. 15, and appears to be confined to the electric system and "does not extend to the nuclear reactor plant." THE WORLD'S first atom- ic-powered vessel entered Portsmouth Shipyard July 26 for an extensive overhaul that was scheduled to be com- pleted late next February. The Navy said it is too early to tell whether the ves- sel will come out of the ship- yard as early as planned, checks will be made 'or damage. Johnson's comment came after the Portsmouth Herald said it had learned of a series of incidents involving "sabo- tage-type" damage 'to the NORWALK, Conn, New Haven Railroad engine smashed into a disabled, self- propelled commuter car here today.
