Labor Board Denies Unions Time on Jobs Company Premises Ruled Natural Forum for Employer WASHINGTON HWThe govern- ment has stopped compelling em- ployers to give unions equal time during plant working hours to solicit members. The rule in effect for two years was reversed late yesterday by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in a 3-1 decision saying that company premises are the natural forum for employer views and the union hall is the union's. "We reject the idea that the union has a statutory right to assemble and make campaign speeches to employes on the em- ployer's premises and at the em- ployer's the NLRB majority said in its policy re- versal. Set Up New Role At the same time the NLRB established a new rule.

Yet "the danger is immense and Dulles said, adding: "This is no time for the free world to relax." Dulles reported in a speech pre- pared for the National Press Club in the meeting of the alliance council in Paris a few days ago. If the danger of aggression has in fact declined, he said, it's due to at least two NATO power and unrest behind the Iron Curtain. Dulles reported that NATO had successfully adopted in the Dec. 14-15 meeting a new "long haul" concept, the essence of which is thai the alliance should operate on a budget which member nations can sustain over a long period. He said this was a step forward over the older concept of empha- sizing heavy military build-ups to meet potential crisis years. In explaining why there is a belief'the danger has possibly de- clined, Dulles laid heavy emphasis on "the vast underlying discon- Iceland Crash Rescue Party Sights No Life REYKJAVIK, Iceland UP) A rescue party crawled within sigh: of a wrecked American Navy bomber high atop an Iceland gla- cier today and reported finding no signs of life. Hope faded that any of the nine crew members were still alive. The two engine patrol bomber crashed last Thursday in a bliz zard on the glacier near the south- east coast of Iceland. The Iceland rescue party radioed that survival equipment dropped near the wreck apparently had not been touched. The party crawled up a steep ce wall with the aid of parachuted supplies only to find that a mighty crevasse still separated it from the plane's wreckage.

President Eisenhower, who jroached the peaceful-uses atomic >lan in a widely acclaimed United Nations speech Dec. 8, had no comment on Russia's reply. The President had opportunity ,o discuss it with some of his top "oreign policy, military and atom- c advisers at a White House coa- "erence this morning. The confer- ence was scheduled before Moscow made public its note yesterday. Among members of Congress remaining in Washington, the con- sensus was hopeful but cautious. Most lawmakers who commented said the Kremlin response was encouraging, but that this govern- ment should move with great care.
