Both letters were personal and very cordial and will not be made public, Short said. Short would not indicate when a successor to Gen. Eisenhower will be named by the President or iden- tify the successor the President has in mind. He simply said the announcement will not be made today. Asked whether Eisenhower will return to this country before June, Short said he did not know when the general will return. Minnesota River Rising From New Ulm to Mankato By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Minnesota River, which al- ready has driven several hundred families from their homes and forced closing of a large flour mill, continued to rise all the way from New Ulm to Mankato today. Evacuation of several families from a large Mississippi river is- land opposite Red Wing, Minn., was begun this morning as the stream, fed by heavy Minnesota and St. Croix River runoff began rising. About 50 homes are located on the island. Water was over the island road in several places.'The road served as a link between two bridges extending from Red Wing to Hager City. Wis. Residents were forced from the island last year when floodwaters engulfed most After remaining stationary all day yesterday, the river rose two inches overnight to a 25.95-foot lev- el.

A great deal depended upon how each side felt about the seizure's legality. The industry, feeling the government's taking over of its plants and mills was illegal, could wait it out until a court test. The government, depending upon how solid it felt legally, could wait or deal with Murray. Murray stuck steadfastly to the Wage Stabilization Board's suggest- ed settlement terms of 17V4 cents an hour increases in pay, plus the union shop and other concessions. Some steel companies reportedly were willing to grant some form of union shop, or compulsory union membership arrangement, but one or two firms balked at this. Back to- Normal Convinced by verbal and written assurances from Murray and com- pany executives that steel produc- tion was fast getting back to nor- mal, after partial shutdowns in the face of a strike threat, Secretary of Commerce Sawyer directed that a ban on steel deliveries be lifted. It wasn't as simple as it sounded for the government, to grant Mur- ray's demands. Industry lawyers thought that previous Supreme Court rulings gave the steel companies the right to sue for millions of dollars worth of damages, equal to the cost of wage increases during seizure. This is the reason the government care- fully named the industry's regular executives as government mana- gers under seizure. Thus, it seemed the government's course was to give every chance of a mutual contract agreement between industry and union before embarking on the drastic step of government dealing directly with the union. Six Kentucky Delegates Go To Sen. Taft LOUISVILLE, Ky. A. Taft won six GOP national con- vention delegate votes in Kentucky yesterday, and his forces predict- ed he would grab off eight more today. Kentucky Republicans will send 20 delegates to their national con- vention in Chicago July 7. Sixteen of the delegates are being chosen in district conventions and four will be named in the state con- vention here Saturday. The six delegates already pledged to support the Ohio senator for Re- publican nomination for President as long as he has a chance' were chosen in the fourth congressional district convention at Bardstown, the fifth at Newport, and the sixth in Lexington. Republicans meet today in the first district Princeton, the sec- ond at Owensboro, seventh at Paintsville and eighth at London.
