By The Associated Press
The government obtained a fed-
eral court order last night direct-
ing 75,000 striking longshoremen
to return to work at idle East and
Gulf coast ports.
Union officials said they sent
a back-to-work order to their
members at struck ports, but such
a recall usually takes 24 hours.
Work probably would not resume
until tomorrow morning, they
The dockworkers had walked off
the job from Maineto Texas ear-
lier in the day when their master
contract expired.
The temporary restraining or-
der, signed by Judge Sylvester J

Ryan in U.S. District Court, was
a preliminary move to securing an
80-day cooling off period under
the Taft-Hartley Act.
Ryan ordered the shipping com-
pany representatives and the
longshore union to appear for a
hearing on a motion to halt the
strike and proceed with bargain-
In Washington, President John-
son announced that he had asked
Atty. Gen. Ramsey blark to seek
the Taft-Hartley injunction.'
The White House, announcing
Johnson's directive to Clark, said
he also asked his three-man medi-
ation team to work with the par-

ties to try to settle the dispute
during the injunction period.
The mediators had met during
the day in New York to determine
if a settlement was likely.
Docks in Puerto Rico were quiet
as well as those along Atlantic
and Gulf coasts as the New York
headquarters of the AFL-CIO In-
ternational Longshoremen's As-
sociation turned down appeals
from island longshoremen to con-
tinue working some ships.
The government has invoked
the injunction provision of Taft'-
Hartley seven times in the last
21 years against the longshore-
men. No new contract has been


qr v

reached without such injunction
in that period.
Several of those times the in-
junction has gone unheaded. Long
shoremen have, for the most part,
respected the injunction.
There was no threat of a pos-
sible showdown with the govern-
ment this time, as the steelers had
announced they would not go
ahead with walkout plans if an
injunction were received. They
had argued, however, that a strike
would not have any noticeable
affect on the security of the coun-
In issuing the injunction, the'
government apparently felt other-



Thomas W. Gleason, president
of the ILA, denied there was a
national emergency. Military cargo
was not affected by the strike, he
said, and West Coast and Great
Lakes ports were open.

President Johnson said, how-
ever, that the strike by the 75,000
dockers would have "severe im-
plications" for the balance of
payments problem.
About 160 ships were tied up
in ports from Searsport, Maine,
to Brownsville, Tex., but many
had been unloaded before the
walkout began at midnight Mon-

fall, as colleges and universities
integrate their curriculum as well

Ever since last spring and the
uproars in many schools follow-
ing the assassination of Dr. Mar-

tin Luther King, professors and
administrators at countless insti-
tutions have organized courses and
some departments in Afro-Ameri-
can studies.
Much of their activity is directly
traceable to pressure last spring
from student groups who felt that
in presenting only white American
history and sociology and litera-
ture, colleges were ignoring or
downplaying an important facet

of the nation's culture. Professors,
who decided that America's racial
crisis necessitated a deeper and
more diverse knowledge of Ameri-

larship made possible, joined the
Previous study of black civiliza-
tion had been limited almost en-
tirely to the history or geography
of Africa. Now, students wanted to
learn about the Negro in America
-his history and his contributions
to their society, his political and
intellectual evolution from slave
into militant.
Most of the courses in black
studies deal with Negro literature
(writers like LeRoi Jones, James
Baldwin), Negro American history
(on which DuBois and historian
Staughton Lynd have written),
and music and folklore. Also com-
mon are courses on poverty, race
relations and other sociology
Even schools who enroll sub-
stantial numbers of black students
are expanding their black cur-
ricula. Many of them are adding
Swahili to their language courses;
universities in New York City and
Chicago have done the same.
Northwestern University offers
courses in four African languages.
Some of the courses are more
sophisticated. Illinois University's
Focus ,.program offers "Political
Economy of Discrimination"; Cor-
nell University is introducing
"Economic Development of the
Urban Ghetto"; Northeastern Il-
linois State College offers a "Sem-
inar in Inner City School Prob-
