THE COPPER STRIKE
Mr. MANSFIELD. Mr President, in response
to our rf'que~t to the Presid~nt
that a Special Board of Inquiry be appointed
to look into the copper strike,
now in Its fifth month find with no end
in sight. the President asked Secretary of
Labor Willard Wirtz, Secretary of Commerce
Alexander Trowbridge, and Assistant
Secretary of Defense Thomus D.
Morris, reprcse11t1ng the Department of
Defense, to meet with us.
As a result of this meeting, it ls our
suggestion that the Secretaries give consideration
to thP settht~ up of a Board
consisting of two members of industry
"!ld two members from the unions and
then, if that is acceptable, for those fm.r
members to get together to sell"Ct three
public members. We feel that this is one
way of getting off dead center, which IS
where the sltul'tion between the unions
and the companies is at the present time
and getting down to "bedrock" to find
ways and means to bring this most unhappy
and critical situation to some sort
of a satisfactory conclusion.
This Board, we think, ~hould be a fact
finding board empowered to look lnt.o the
situation and to make recommendations
to the three Secretaries as to how this
strtke could be settled.
If the parties repre~enting labor and
industry agree to serve on this Board but
are unable to agree on three public members,
thf'ir sP!ecticn should tl'en become
the responsibility of the Secretary of
Labor, the Secretary of Commerce, and
thp Secretary of Defense. We hope that
the companies and the u n ions will give
the most ~erious and Immediate consideration
to this suggestion. If they do, my
colleague, the Senator from Montana
[Mr. METCALF), and I feel quite certain

For most Americans transportation calls
to mind vast distan ces and evokes Images
of transconti nental railroads, river steamboats,
and wagon trains !rom our past. and
the jet pla nes and Interstate highways of
today. Yet anyone who h as spent more t1me
In getting to the airport than he has in the
air between cities knows that spanning long
d istances is not the current challenge. And
although recently we have begun to come to
grips wlth the unique problems posed by the
travel needs within our cities, and have begun
to recogn ize this as the transportation
problem, our approach more often reflects
our technological successes ln the past than
the social need or the economic reality ot
the present .
