Fail To Halt
UAW Sntrike
DETROIT (-P - A United Auto
Workers strike against the Elec-
tric Auto-Lite Co. in seven cities
began yesterday when last-ditch
contract negotiations failed.
The UAW called the strike at a
union-set noon deadline for an
agreement on a new national con-
tract to replace a pact that ex-
pired Aug. 1.
The union said 8,500 employes
were involved. However, a com-
pany spokesman said only about
3.800 UAW members have been at
work in the plants.
Electric Auto-Lite, which has
more than a score of plants in as
many cities, is a chief supplier of
equipment to the automobile In-
dustry. It also makes aircraft and
marine instruments.
For the auto industry the com-
pany makes such products as
headlamps, generators, distribu-

Probers Reveal Petition Falsification

LANSING qP-A bizarre account
of how workers for three political
candidates in the Aug. 5 primary
induced grade school children to
falsify nominating petitions was
unfolded yesterday.
State officials called it "astound-
ing," "startling" and "appalling."
Receive Report
After receiving a report from
investigators. the state board of
canvassers attached no blame to
the candidates, all of them Demo-
cratic irregulars who were over-
whelmingly defeated.
But the board instructed Secre-
tary of State James M. Hare to
turn over evidence to local prose-
cutors that possibly could lead to
warrants against 14 petition circu-
lators who operated in eight coun-
Billie S. Farnum, Hare's deputy,
said some of them were open to
accusations of contributing to the
delinquency of minors. All appar-
ently attested falsely to the valid-
ity of signatures gathered, he said.
Children Serve
Farnum said the school children
were pressed into service in Jack-
son where a 12-year-old, a 13-
year-old and a child whose age
was in the same bracket were em-
ployed by a man to fill out peti-
tions for the three candidates at
$1 a set.
"They got some of their friends
and sat down and wrote names of
all their schoolmates and friends,
and used whatever addresses they
could think of," the report read
by Farnum related.
"In one case they wrote down
the names of seven children rang-
ing from 2 to 12 years. When they
returned with the first set, the
man told them that one (of the

Reopening of South's Schools

Negroes was raised yesterday by
Arthur S. Flemming, Secretary of
Health, Education and Welfare.
He figured that 16,400 children
are missing their customary
classes in Little Rock, Ark., and
Norfolk, Charlottesville and War-
ren County, Va.
"The thing to do now is to point
up the seriousness of the situation
so that citizens of the local com-
munities will take action to re-
store the opportunities within the
decisions of the courts," he said.
"The closing of the schools is

indefensible and they should be

Detroit Drivers Stop Delivery
Of Milk in Unauthorized.Strike

Defiant dairy drivers cut Detroit
home and market supplies of milk,
to a slow trickle yeste'rday by a
sudden unauthorized strike,
Dairy owners and the Detroit
Milk Dealers Association made,
plans to seek 1 court action pro-
hibiting picketing and disorder at
the plants, while the city's milk
supply shrank alarmingly.
, Only a few deliveries were made,
yesterday, and there were several
intances of violence, with trucks,
halted, drivers threatened, and
tires slashed.
Called Unauthorized
John O'Keefe, president of Local
83, United Dairy Wprkers, called
the strike unauthorized. He said
that the union has no-strike
clauses in contracts with the
dairies. He knew nothing about
the strike until yesterday, he said,
and he did order the strikers back
to work, but without success.
"This is not a union strike and
there seems to be no one to deal
with," said Samuel T. Angott,
president of the Detroit Milk Deal.
ers Association.
A few drivers started deliveries
before they knew of the strike, but
OKLAHOMk -- Jud Fry, hired
hand on Eller Murphy's farm, was
found hanging from a rafter of
the smokehouse he inhabited early
this morning. A chair was lying
on the floor beneath the feet of
the corpse.
Reverend Parker said about Pore
Jud, "Folks 'at really knowed him,
knowed 'at beneath them two dirty
shirts he always wore, there beat
a heart as big as all outdoors."
Jud was supposed to escort Miss
Laurey Williams, niece of Eller
Murphy, to the Box Social tonight.
Curly Andrews, who had been
courting Laury, claimed that the
hired hand "always stayed in the
filthy hole .. , a-crawlin' and fes-
terin' . . . and never did sumpin'
healthy onct."
Although he couldn't see at the
moment any motive for suicide,
Cord Elam, the federal Marshal,
said that he had for quite a time
suspected Jud Fry of starting the
fire'on the Bartleet farm in Sweet-
water. "There was a hired hand

their companies located them.
Milk Scarce
Some deliveries were made to
supermarkets early yesterday, but
several of the big markets werea
short of milk as. they opened. Hos-
pitals and schools received their
milk, however.
Drivers for the cooperativelyi
owned Twin Pines Dairy voted1
to make deliveries, but delayed
their trips because of the hooting
pickets from other dairies who
surro nided the Twin Pines plants
and thireatened trouble if drivers
started on their routes.
Of Detroit's 2,000 milk truck
drivers, 1,500 struck yesterday.
Spokesmen said that they struck
in protest against what they
charge is price undercutting by
some chain stores and markets.
Drivers said they charge cus-
tomers 242 cents a quart for
home delivered milk. Many stores
are selling milk at 17 to 20 cents
a quart, they said.I

He also said it seems apparent
that private schools such as those
set up in Little Rock would not
likely be able to qualify for fed-
eral loans under the new aid to
education act.
The schools were closed under
state laws enacted to resist the
Supreme Court decisions upset-

tern of separate education for

Flemming said he has gained
an indication from news stories
that local citizenries are coming
to grips with the situation and
that at least a segment in each
community is interested in work-
ing out a solution.
