Maritime Strike
NEW YORK ()-A government
board made a final stab yesterday
at bringing peace to the Ameri-
can maritime industry. If it fails,
a Taft-Hartley law injunction is
in the works to end the 12-day
David L. Cole, chairman of the
three-member board of inquiry es-
tablished by President John F.
Kennedy, said at the opening ses-
sion, that he considered a strike
settlement the panel's most im-
portant goal.
However, the board has only un-
til Friday to work on the dead-
lock. It then is due to report to
the White House on the issues in-
volved, as a preliminary to seek-
ing a Taft-Hartley strike-ending
Toward Settlement
"We will try our best to move
toward a settlement," Cole said
at the end of the afternoon meet-
His board held a night session
behind closed doors with princi-
pals in the dispute, and Cole said
the open hearings would resume
at 10 a.m. today.
Two of the six maritime unions
involved in the strike argued that
they are outside the jurisdiction
of the Taft-Hartley law because
they are composed of supervisory
employes. The two are the Marine
} Engineers Union, and the Masters,
Mates and Pilots Union.
Review Argument
Cole did not rule on their con-
tention. He said they could renew
their argument in the courts when
the issue of an injunction is pre-

Paul Hall of the striking Seafarers
International Union, promised "a
hell of a fight" in court against a
Taft-Hartley injunction. He talk-
ed with newsmen after a confer-
ence of the AFL-CIO Executive
CHallsaid the unions are armed
with plenty of legal arguments
from statements made by Kenne-
dy when he was in Congress and
by Secretary of Labor Arthur J.
Goldberg when he was union
counsel opposing an injunction in
the 1959 steel strike.
However, AFL-CIO President
George Meany indicated to news-
men separately he thinks an in-
junction is inevitable, because the
government can argue the effects
are bound to get worse the longer
the strike continues.
Workers See
Anti-Red Film
Over Protest
The film "Operation Abolition"
was shown to city employes last
night over the objections of the
Council's one Democrat.
Council member Lynn W. Eley
objected to the controversial film
being shown on city property by
city employes at Monday's Coun-
cil meeting. He made no attempt
to obtain Council censure of the
film or a ban on its showing in
Ann Arbor.

The film was shown by the Civil
Defense Director Dr. Harry : R.
Shipman to city employes primar-
ily for those scenes which illus-
trate the control of mobs.
Eley centered his objection upon
the contention that the showing
of the film under city auspices
implies city sponsor ship and en-
dorsement of the authenticity of
the film. Opinions on the validity
of the film were not discussed.
Republican John R. Laird said
that it was not the Council's poli-
cy to act as censor of the educa-
tional materials used by the var-
ious department heads. He also
said that the presentation of in-
formative material does not imply
endorsement of the point of view
The same issue arose in the state
Legislature last May when Gov.
Swainson forbade the State Po-
cei Ito show the film for reasons
siimlar to those advanced by

As Administration Recommends,
WASHINGTON (A') - Federal loans for parochial schools won
approval of the House Education Committee yesterday.
This cleared the way for a bitter fight over the John F. Kennedy
administration's aid to education program, possibly in the Rules Com-
mittee as well as on the House floor.

By adding church school loans to the National Defense Education
Act, the Education Committee met the terms laid down by the Rules

Group Plans
Freedom Ride
To Dearborn
Local "Freedom Riders" yes-
terday announced plans to pro-
test racial discrimination in Dear-
born sometime next month.
The Ann Arbor chapter of the
Congress of R a c i a 1 Equality
(CORE) will send the riders
through the Detroit suburb and
plans sit-ins at restaurants and
drug stores suspected of segregat-
ing public facilities. About 40 per-
sons are expected to participate.
Members of the local CORE out-
let-called the Ann Arbor Direct
Action Committee - investigated
segregation in several Dearborn
stores last weekend and ran "test
cases" to see if Negroes would be
served, a spokesman said.
Hubbard Not Upset
Dearborn Mayor Orville Hub-
bard said he would not prevent
the "Freedom Ride" from travel-
ing through the city. "So let them
come, just so they don't drive too
fast and do obey all the traffic
"Dearborn is a metropolitan
community and we have all sorts
of people passing through here
every day. There are several
thousand Negroes who work here
and they use our public transpor-
tation daily and there never has
been trouble of any kind.
"It sounds like some freedom
clowns trying to make some trou-
ble." Hesaid he would meet the
riders on city hall steps.
Pledge Non-Violence
Both AADAC and CORE are
pledged to non-violent passive re-
sistance in their protests against
racial bias. AADAC has picketed
local outlets of national chains
which discriminate in the South
for over a year.,
Judith Yesner, Grad, who is
chairman of the group said the.
ride is planned for next month.
Earlier, in Jackson, Miss., the
coordinating committee of the
"Freedom Riders" decided to con-
tinue its desegregation attempts
by sending more riders into south-
ern cities.
The representatives of four
sponsoring organizations decided
without dissent to keep the riders
traveling into bus, rail and air-
plane terminals.

program launched in 1958 to
strengthen science, mathematics
and language teaching in the
United States.
Republican Dissent
It carries a total of $1.8 billion
in loans and grants for a wide
variety of educational activities.
The vote was 17 to 11 with one Re-
publican, Rep. Charles E. Goodell
of New York, joining 16 Democrats
in the majority. All 11 dissenting
votes were cast by Republicans.
By a voice vote the committee
supported an administration rec-
ommendation to drop a present re-
quirement that applicants for stu-
dent loansnstate by affidavit that
they have never belonged to a sub-
versive organization.
An oath of allegiance to the
United States would still be re-

al leaders decided earlier in the
session to add parochial school

Hierarchy Hit
For Opposing
School Aid Bill
Wayne Morse (D-Ore) yesterday
said the Catholic hierarchy made
a great mistake when it threat-
ened to oppose any federal aid to
education bill unless parochial
schools were included.
Morse, speaking at the annual
convention of the National Edu-
cation Association (NEA), specif-
ically mentioned Francis Cardinal
Spellman, archbishop of New
York, and the controversial state-
ment issued by Catholic officials
last March which asked for fed-
eral loans to private schools.
Morse said he thinks federal
loans to parochial schools would
be constitutional, but that federal
grants would not be.

In the WSU case, however, Tur-

showed no concentrations in cer-

tribution of employes by race
would indicate that a non-discrim-
inatory policy was being "honestly
Francis Kornegay, director of
the Urban League, doesn't believe
such a census should be taken un-
less there is a doubt that the Fair
Employment Practices Act is not
being followed.
The Act prohibits Michigan em-
ployers from asking the race of
job applicants or indicating it on
their employe records.
"The only objections to the cen-
sus would come from those who
are afraid of what the figures
would show," he said last night.
Kornegay said "there is no ques-
tion that Michigan's institutions of
higher education discriminate
against Negroes in employment,
both in the teaching and non-
teaching areas."
The discrimination is not a de-
liberate one, Kornegay emphasiz-
ed. Past histories of discrimina-
tion practices, however, keep Ne-
groes from applying to many,
WSU Provost Arthur Neef said
he didn't fear the outcome of the
census, but he objected strongly
"to the position it would place
us in by conducting it."

Of TestBan
CIO President George Meany yes-
terday called for full resumption
of United States nuclear tests.
He said there is no way to tell
whether Russia is keeping its end
of a gentlemen's agreement to
ban tests.
Meany's comment was made in
connection with a foreign policy,
statement adopted unanimously by
the AFL-CIO Executive Council.
It urged the government to "alert
the American people to the grav-
ity of the international crisis.''
Meany said he wasn't criticizing
President John F. Kennedy but
felt the American people just
don't understand the seriousness
of the foreign situation, believing
somehow everything will get
tsraightened out.

Secretary Discredits Rumors

CHICAGO (AP)-Secretary of State Dean Rusk yesterday termed

The secretary said in a press conference that the report pub-
lished last week that this government would agree to admission of

well as one on the UN Security Council, is only one of a number of
alternatives being considered.
