UAW Bargaining
For 'Labor Dignity'
Major Union Goals Include
Greater Rest and Relief Time
DETROIT (M)-The United Auto Workers Union, bargaining with
the "Big Three" auto makers during a boom period, apparently has
put "the dignity of labor" on a par with straight economic demands
and creation of new jobs.,'
New work rules and more rest and relief time are major goals
set forth in the UAW propositions presented to the automakers in
the "first round" bargaining sessions concluded this week.
The proposals laid on the bargaining table follow a resolution
passed by the UAW national convention to seek "to civilize, and
humanize the factories and offices in which our members spend half

Civil Rights Ac

Two Cases in Atlanta To Test
Public Accommodations Section
ATLANTA (I)-The Civil Rights Act went on trial in a fed
court here yesterday in two suits.
In the first, motel owner Moreton Rolleston contended t
the civil rights act of 1964 takes away property rights and invF
the domain of state legislatures.
And in a second lawsuit, filed by three Negroes against a se
gated restaurant, federal attorneys loosed a barrage of testin

law in the statute's first test.

Student Hits,
Service Fee
New charges for after-hours
calls to Health Service are likely
to deter students who need emer-
gency medical care, a University
graduate student predicted yester-
His claim drew a quick rebuttal
from Melbourne Murphy, assistant
to the director of Health Service.
The new policy, in force since
June 1, levies charges of, $3 or
$5 on a student coming to Health
Service outside of regular clinic
hours. Only if he has been injur-
ed in a University building or in
University - sponsored athletics
does he automatically escape this
fee. Previously, a sufficiently se-
vere emergency entitled a student
to free after-hours care.
Live with It
The graduate student, George
N. Vance, Jr., said that "my con-'
cern is about the student who
learns about this charge, then gets
sick one night and says, I'll just
live with it until morning.' By 9.
a.m. he may be in a coma. This

New Goals
Union goals in this third straight
boom year for the auto industry
contrast sharply with 1961. The
main goal then was getting men
back to work after lawoffs, with
wages a main issue.
Councils for the UAW Depart-
ments at Ford Motor Co., Gen-
eral Motors Corp., Chrysler Corp.
and American Motors Corp. em-
phasized this spring that new
contracts must "assert the sov-
ereignty of human beings over
There has been no immediate
reaction from the auto companies
on positions taken by the union
except that of GM Vice-Prsident
Louis .Seaton. He said "there isn't
an aura of realism" in the UAW
But spokesmen for all the auto
firms have stated that any reduc-
tion in the amount of work done
by employes costs money. Andall
have said that any settlement must
be "non-inflationary."
This year the/ union apparently
considers a number one require-
ment of the new contract a pro-
vision for rest periods in addition
to personal relief time now given.
The union says this must apply
to "all workers on assembly lines
and on all other jobs where the
worker is not now free to take
reasonable pause from the grind-
ing monotony of production work."
Earlier retirement also is near
the top of the union demands this
year. The UAW says "earlier re-
tirement should be made avail-
able at the earliest age that may
be practicable and in any case not
later than either age 60 or on
the basis of a factor system which
gives recognition to long service
by workers who are still short of
Some GM Council members in-
sisted they got a "firm verbal com-
mitment" from UAW President
Walter Reuther that he wouldn't
sign a contract that didn't tie re-
tirement to a fixed number of
years of service, as well as age.
UAW Secretary-Treasurer Emil
Mazey vowed there will be no con-
tract unless the companies as-
sume the full cost of hospital-a
medical insurance for retirees.

Right-Wing Party Influences

platform and an apparent coolness toward its presidential candidate,
Sen. Ba'ry Goldwater.
Romney told a caucus of the Michigan delegation to the GOP
National Convention Thursday he would support Goldwater only
if the campaign is free of "hate-peddling and fear-spreading and
devoted to issues of the day."

New York Governor Blasts
Statements on 'Extremism'
By The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO-The Republican debate over "extremism"
continued yesterday as New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller de-
nounced the view of Presidential nominee Barry Goldwater. Gold-
.water flared back with a challenge to the governor to define the
term in writing.
And at the same time, Rockefeller's fellow New York liberal
Republican,Sen. Kenneth Keating, denied that he and about half
of the New York delegation had staged a "walkout" after Goldwater's
nomination acceptance speech Thursday. Rockefeller issued a state-
ment tearing into Goldwater's

extremism view declared in the
acceptance speech. The governor
seized on Goldwater's declaration
that "extremism in the defense of
liberty is no vice; and moderation
in the pursuit of justice is no
Rockefeller, who made a run
for the nomination in the name
of moderation and sought un-
successfully to get a declaration
against extremism into the party
platform, said his own reaction to
Goldwater's statement was one of
"amazement and shock."
"To extol extremism-whether
'in defense of liberty' or in 'pur-
suit of justice'-is dangerous, ir-
responsible and frightening,"
Rockefeller said.
Told of the Rockefeller state-
ment, Goldwater came back with
"Is it extreme action for our
boys to give their lives in Viet
Nam? Would the governor fight
for his life? That would be an
extreme action.",
Goldwater added: "I would like
the governor, for my benefit and
the benefit of the party and the
people of America, to put down
in writing his definition of ex-
Keating explained yesterday that
he led his delegation out of the
Cow Palace in the middle of the
applause for Goldwater not as a
protest move, but due to a virus
infection he had.
Many of those in the Cow Pal-
ace left even before the speech
vas over to avoid the rush. But
the New York delegation was very
noticeable because it went out all
at once, was sitting in the front,
and was known not to be en-
husiastic for Goldwater. In addi-
tion, the delegation had not ap-
plauded during the speech.

Job Increase
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The nation's
economy-including total nonfarm
employment, weekly factory earn-
ings, factory work week length
and overtime hours-is bursting
with health, President Lyndon B.
Johnson was told recently.
Secretary of Labor Willard W.
Wirtz made public figures which
showed that:
-There were 59.1 million per-
sons employed in nonfarm jobs in
June, up 1.5 million over the same
month last year and the highest
total on record.
-Weekly factory earnings were
up 53 cents overlay to $103.50 in
June-an all-time high.
-The work week of 40.9 hours
was the highest of any June since
the end of World War II.
-The overtime figure, among;
the 15 to 16 million workers who
are working extra hours, was 3.2
hours, the highest recorded since
the Bureau of Labor Statistics
began keeping such figures in

send the issue on to the United
States Supreme Court.
He said Congress had no con-
stitutional power to enact the law

commerce clause upon which the
statute stands.
Attorney Burke Marshall of the
Justice Department argued that
the right of Congress to regulate
interstate commerce also extends

motel operating on a discrimina-
tory basis.
Marshall said Congress could
deal with racial discrimination in
public accommodations because it
affects Negroes traveling in inter-
state commerce, involves artificial
restrictions on markets, and racial
disputes have an economic effect.
"I think the findings of Congress
are entitled to great weight," he
said. Marshall denied the law's
enforcement amounted to illegal
taking of private property.

gree from the public health
school, said that a major prob-
lem in public health is to get
people needing medical care to see
a doctor. He said the institution
of the Health Service fee is a step
away from this goal.
But Murphy denied that any-
one need pass up medical care
because of the new fee. Students
unable to pay their bill may have
it waived by Health Service Di-
rector Dr. Morley Beckett.
Doctor Expense
He said the after-hours fee was
.prompted by the increased ex-
pense involved in maintaining a
doctor on duty or on call during
off-hours. Even with the new
charge, he pointed out, the Serv-
ice loses money on after-hours
calls. Whether the tab amounts to
$3 or $5 depends on he call.
Dr. Beckett, out of town until
Monday, was not available for
Vance commented that he be-
came aware of the new policy only
after he was charged for a Satur-
day afternoon call. "If they must,
maintain the fee, they should at
least publicize it," he declared.
As in the past, the Health Serv-
ice offers free clinic service to
students and faculty from 9 a.m.-
noon Monday through Saturday
and 1-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (P)-Three United States satellites soared
into wide-swinging orbits yesterday to complete the first leg of a,
celestial triple play aimed at perfecting a foolproof means of detecting
secret nuclear explosions in space.
The second and third legs were scheduled for execution early
this morning. At these times, ground stations planned to beam radio
signals to ignite on-board rockets to jockey first one and then a

"I have taken plenty of initia-

said, in an obvious reference to
several unsuccessful attempts to

Danes, Swedes Threaten

NICOSIA, Cyprus (P)-Denmark and Sweden threatened yester-
day to withdraw their United Nations peace force units from Cyprus
if the situation deteriorated further. Their warning came as United

Turkish Cypriots.
Two companies of Canadian troops were sent to the Turkish vil-
lage of Temblos when Greek Cypriots moved in heavy artillery and,
