In an effort to support the Korean War in 1950, President Truman requested authority to requisition of property and to allocate priorities for scarce goods. In Title IV of the Defense Production Act of 1950, Congress not only gave the President the powers requested, but also gave him authority to stabilize wages and prices. In 1952, the steel industry union announced a nationwide strike hoping to increase their wages. Hours before the strike was to commence, the President issued an Executive Order, which directed Secretary of Commerce Sawyer to take possession of the steel industry and to keep the mills operating, in order to assure the continued availability of steel and steel products during the existing emergency. The order invoked the authority vested in the President by the Constitution and laws of the United States, and as President of the U.S. and Commander in Chief of the armed forces of the U.S.
