Republicans and Democrats are
blaming each other for the fail-
ure of the special session of the
State Legislature June 15 to pass

any new measures.
The two measures for which
Gov. John B. Swainson called the
special session would have brought

funds for welfare and highwayL

British Back Kuwait
Against Iraqi Threat
BEIRUT () - With British backing, the rich sheikdom of
Kuwait declared last night it will fight Iraq's attempt at annexation.
Arab League nations were reported gravely concerned over
the Iraqi claim and Kuwait's future.
Iraq denounced a British pledge to defend Kuwait and re-
asserted its claim of sovereignty over the Persian gulf territory.
Postpone Departure
A dispatch from Kuwait said Iraq's move had prompted British
warships and soldiers to postpone their departure from the former
British protectorate. The Kuwaiti
government in a confidently word-
ed communique released here said enezuela
it "is convinced that friendly and p a el vn o nre , ep cal
peace-loving countries, especiallyH a

needed for passage. The vote was
14 to 10.
Speaker of the House Don R.
Pears (R-Buchanan) said that "as
it turned out, the special session
was a waste of time."
He said it was valuable in that
legislators had an opportunity to
get additional information on the
two new bills. "However, many leg-
islators believe that the call for
a special session was poorly
timed.

Takes First Step
The creation of such a board is
the first step under the Taft-

Members of the AFL-CIO execu-
tive council adopted a statement
at a meeting in Unity, Pa. saying
the maritime unions' offer to lift
the strike for movements of food,
fuel and other essential supplies
would safeguard the nation's
health and safety and remove the
need for an 80-day injunction.
It was announced, meanwhile,
that Secretary of Labor Arthur J.
Goldberg, in charge of the crip-
pling strike situation for Ken-.
nedy, will fly to the labor union

cumstances, he said.
The Democrats blamed the fail-
ure of the bills on the Republi-
cans. House Minority Leader Jo-
seph J. Kowalski (D-Detrolt) said
the lack of action on the ADC
bill "is the most stupid thing the
Republicans have ever done."
Swainson Comments
Swainson said the Republicans
have "demonstrated beyond doubt
that they are unresponsive to the
needs of the citizens of Michi-
gan."
"After depriving thousands of
our youth of a college education,
after shutting the doors of hos-
pitals to the mentally ill and re-
tarded, after short-changing loyal
state employes through inadequate
appropriations, the Republicans
came back to tell the citizens of
Michigan they cannot have re-
turned to them more than $25
million in federal taxes they have
sent to Washington," he said.

ran, president of the National
Maritime Union said he had reach-
ed a tentative settlement with
major shipping lines last Tuesday
only to have them back down.
Curran blamed Goldberg for
having played an unwitting part
in failure of the deal. Curran said
it collapsed after Goldberg last
Thursday proposed a 60-day strike
truce while a government board
recommended settlement terms--
a plan accepted by shipowners but
rejected by the Union.
"I'm not saying that Goldberg
torpedoed the settlement," Curran
said, "but he made it possible for
it to be torpedoed.
"Someone in the government left
the impression with the shipown-
ers they would be bailed out. The
oil companies told the shipping
negotiators to stand pat because
the foreign flag issue was so hot
the government would bail them
out."
