Unions Threaten Strong Action

CHICAGO (I) - The nation's
railroads said yesterday that econ-
omy work rules changes they plan
to invoke Aug. 16 for,200,000 em-
ployes will be more drastic than
those ordered earlier.
The surprise shift came as five
operating unions pressed for a
court ban on the railroads' ex-
pense-paring move set for next

said they will, instead, adopt a

Drop 40,000 Jobs
The shift, in effect would elim-
inate some 40,000 jobs of firemen
employed on diesel locomatives in
yard and freight service. The rail-
roads had announced July 17 they
would drop only 13,000, retraining
another 27,000 senior firemen.
The railroads also would- make
more drastic revisions to cut out
jurisdictional conflict of specific
jobs by requiring some employes to
to do chores now handled by
others, and would require longer
train-run mileage without crew
J. E. Wolfe, spokmsman for the
railroads, said the move was forced
upon the carriers by a suit of the
five operating brotherhoods for a
declaratory United States district
court order banning application of
the less drastic changes.

He told a news conference he
believes the move will bring a
Presidential emergency board rec-
ommendation along the lines of
that made by the Presidential
Wolfe accused the unions of
"callous contempt for the public
interest" in attempting to block
rules changes.
The federal court suit, he said,
"is another of their familiar stal-
ling tactics and obviously is de-
signed to derail the possibilities
of settling the featherbedding
Perry to Decide
Judge Joseph Sam Perry, who
heard arguments on the suit, took
the matter under advisement to
review legal aspects until today
when, he said, he will announce
his decision.
Wolfe said that, because of the
nature of the union's court attack
upon the proposed changes, "this
method is used to avoid inter-
minable litigation."
The more drastic rules changes
originally announced, he said, are
free of technicalities raised by the
unions in their attack upon the
work rules formulated by the Pres-
idential commission.
If he turns down the unions'
challenge, the organizations could
call an nationwide strike. In such
an event, President John F. Ken-
nedy would likely name an emer-
gency board to review and clarify
issues of the dispute, invoking an
automatic 60-day delay of strike

On Defense
Rep. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) and two other members of
his Joint Legislative Committee
on economic growth will meet in
Washington next Monday with a
Defense Department aide in
search of more defense contracts
for Michigan.
Bursley, Senators John Stah-
lin (R-Belding) and Raymond
Dzendzel (D-Detroit) will meet
with Robert Steadman, the Pent-,
agon economic adjustment ad-
"The committee will discuss
complaints about the midwest and
why research contracts are given
to certain areas," Bursley explain-
ed. He noted that defense pro-
duction contracts tended to follow

dustries built around university

duction will be investigated, Bur-
sley said. He added that the com-!
mittee will discuss with Stead-
man the problem of overhead
costs on defense research con-
tracts. d
(The University recently indi-
cated it might refuse defense con-
tracts if the 20 per cent overhead
limit established by the House
becomes law.)
Bursley predicted the state may
provide funds to meet overhead
costs if federal money is not avail-

Steadman recently completed a
survey of defense contracting, not-
ing that most awards went to
East and West Coast industries.
The committee hopes to determine
what factors give these areas an!
advantage over the Midwest.
Dzendzel, however, was critical
of the timing of the meeting. He
declared that the committee had
done nothing about this problem
in recent years and that the
Washington meeting was an elec-
tion gimick.
"I think the whole committee
should hear him,' he said.
Bretton Comments
Prof. Henry L. Bretton of the
political science department, run-
ning against Bursley in the fall,
also rapped the excursion, term-
ing it a "deplorable use of public
funds for electioneering purposes.
"The junket should be called off
if we are to be taken seriously in
the nation's capital," he added.

LONDON P) - A two-month
postponement of Britain's bid to
join the Common Market handed
Prime Minister Harold Macmillan
yesterday the delicate task of
maintaining the thin support he
has now for entering the thriving
trade bloc.
With support from West Ger-
many, the government strove to
put the best face possible on the
postponement, reportedly brought
on by French resistance to any
concessions to some British Com-
monwealth partners.

progressed to a point where the

have an opportunity to consider a
wide range of market problems.

Talks With Zorin
After high level talks in Wash-

last weekend with the new pro-

and again yesterday with Soviet
delegate Valerian Zorin.
Zorin informed the delegates
that on the basis of his prelimin-
ary impressions the new Western
plan "does not look promising."
He said that from what he had
already learned from informal
talks with Dean, the Western pro-
posals offered no hope for pro-
gress toward a test ban agreement

For the use of the admissions
office, a series of "catacombs"
(small offices and storage space),
had been built in the Administra-
tion Bldg. This was rather rarely
used by Lewis primarily because
of the limited size of the offices.

cerns chiefly - the remodeling of

"The new offices which will be

The construction work is occur-

decided on the use for the areas
involved at the time of initial of-

a considerable amount of study,
have we been able to decide what
reconstructive forms to use.
"Therefore, it's somewhat coin-
cidental that the remodeling and
the time of Heyns' move occurred
together," Lee said.
He indicated that the work will
be completed within a week to 10
days and asserted that "the cost
