South Vietnamese paratroopers;

night in an action broadening the

The machinists voted Wednes-
day to reject a McDonnell con-
tract proposal offering a nine-
cent hourly wage increase in each
of the next three years. The main
objection was to the fringe bene-
fit and working conditions areas
of the contract.
The International Association of
Machinists, AFL-CIO, sanctioned
the strike, unlike the four-day
wildcat walkout at the St. Louis
McDonnell facility last week.
Director William E. Simkin of
the Federal Mediation and Con-
ciliation Service called yesterday's
meeting in Washington, but his
assistant, Walter Maggiolo, sat in
when Simkin did not return in
time from a West Coast trip.
Hope for Settlement
Maggiolo said the White House
had expressed hope for a quick
settlement, as had the Defense
Department and other government
agencies. A government spokes-
man bargaining probably would
go on around the clock.
IAM Vice-President Eugene
Glover said he hoped for an early
settlement and said the union was
taking a new look at its demands.
It was reported that one early
area of discussion might be a dis-
pensation for Cape Kennedy ma-
chinists to continue work on Ge-
mini 6 and 7.
Gemini 7, already on the launch
pad, is scheduled for a 14-day
journey beginning Dec. 4 with as-
tronauts Frank Borman and James
A. Lovell, Jr. Gemini 6, in the
hangar, is to be launched Dec. 13j
with astronauts Walter M. Schir-
ra, Jr., and Thomas P. Stafford'
aboard. The spaceships are to ma-
neuver within a few feet of each
other and fly in formation.
A final systems test scheduled,
to start on Gemini 7 was put off
until today or tomorrow in the
hope of getting more technicians
on the job.
Overall impact on work at Cape
Kennedy was small, NASA re-

required to enter the Cape Ken-I

be declared unconstitutional and
urging that the attorney general

steps to enforce it.

last night for failure to registerc

U.S. Dist. Judge William B.-
Jones imposed the maximum pen-t
alty-$230,000 in fines.-
Defense attorney Joseph Forer
had asked Jones to impose a'
nominal fine of $1 because, in hisC
words, "this is a test case" and
because of the prohibition against
excessive fines in the Eighth1
Amendment to the Constitution.
Jones did not even reply to theI
argument but meted out the max-:
imum $10,000 fine on each count.
A U.S. District Court jury of
eight women and four men re-
turned the verdict--guilty on all1
23 counts-after 21/2 hours of de-
liberation at the end of the third
week of the party's trial.
