SYRIA, ISRAEL FIGHT:
k UN Agents Halt Border Clash
' DAMASCUS, Syria (JP)-On their
third attempt, United Nations
truce supervisors yesterday halted
,a three hour tank and artillery
duel across the border between
Syria and Israel.
A Syrian spokesman, claiming
"heavy losses" on enemy gun posi-
tions and tanks, reported Syrian
losses as four soldiers and two
civilians wounded. Syria claimed
an Israeli tank was set aflame.
(In Tel Aviv, an Israeli army
spokesman said four persons-
three Arab girls and an Arab
woman-were killed when shells
landed in a Bedouin camp. An-
other Arab girl, a baby and two
Minimum Wage Coverage
WASHINGTON (P-Pushing far beyond administration requests,
the House Education and Labor Committee voted'yesterday to apply
a $1.15-an-hour federal minimum wage to 1.3 million agricultural
This raised to more than 6 million the number of workers which
the committee would bring under the minimum-wage law now
applying to 29.6 million.

workers and sharecroppers whom

Goldberg Confers with
Thant on Assessments
UNITED NATIONS (.'P)-Ambassador Arthur J. Goldberg con-
ferred yesterday with Secretary-General U Thant, the Soviet repre-
sentative and other UN diplomats before flying to Washington to
make final a new United States policy on past-due peacekeeping
UN diplomats believe the U.S. will announce Monday that it
is abandoning its attempts to deprive the Soviet Union, France and
11 other members of their General Assembly voting rights because
they refuse to pay the assessments. But Goldberg insisted that the
Public Works Bill
A labor subcommittee has ap-
proved extension of the law to a
total of 7.2 million workers and
the full committee will vote on
the remaining categories Monday
before going on to the question of
raising the minimum wage for
most workers from $1.25 to $1.75.
This increase has been approved
by the subcommittee.
Chairman Adam Clayton Powell
(D-NY) said the new coverage
was approved yesterday by bi-
partisan votes with little opposi-
The largest remaining groups
for which extension of coverage
will be considered include em-
ployes of automobile and farm-
implement dealers, numbering
about 600,000, and workers in
agricultural processing plants,
totaling about 250,000.
Johnson made no recommen-
dation on the amount of the in-
crease in the minimum wage, say-
ing that Congress should deter-
The subcommittee voted a three-
stage increase, to $1.40 in 1966,
$1.60 in 1967 and $1.75 in 1968,
for workers now covered.
The newly covered workers, ex-
cept those in farming, would start
at $1 next Jan. 1, go to $1.15 after
six months and then rise in an-
U.S. position would not be deter-
mined until after further con-
sultations. He and Secretary of
State Dean Rusk will draft rec-

expected before Monday, when

each of the main geographical

other UN officials, including Un-
dersecretary Ralph J. Bunche, the

Refuse To Pay
The Soviet Union, France and
the other 11 nations have refused
to pay the peacekeeping assess-
ments on the ground they were
illegal because they were approved
by the General Assembly instead
of the Security Council.
The U.S. contended that under
Article 19 of the UN Charter they
faced loss of their voting rights
in the General Assembly.
Most diplomats expect the U.S.
to come up with a plan that
would not abandon its legal posi-
tion, but could open the way for
voluntary contributions by the
Soviet Union and other debtor
nations. The contributions would
permit normal functioning of the
Assembly and ease the precarious
financial position of the world
WASHINGTON (P)-The House
passed a $3.25 billion public works
development bill yesterday after
beating all attempts to cut it.
The measure has been labeled
by its sponsors as a long step to-
ward wiping out pockets of un-
employment and subnormal in-
come in almost every state.
Opponents, mainly Republicans,
branded it a "boondoggle" and
said it would not accomplish the
The Senate passed the bill June
1 after boosting it $750 million
above the amount proposed by
President Lyndon B. Johnson. The
House made no change in the
money total but approved com-
mittee alterations which the Sen-
ate is expected to accept without
too much argument.
Voting for the bill on the final
roll call were 215 Democratic and
31 Republicans; against it were 45
Democrats and 93 Republicans.,
In a final gesture, Republicans
lumped some of the rejected
amendments into a package and
forced a roll-call. They lost by vote
of 224 to 163, wth 48 Democrats
and 115 Republicans supporting
the move and 211 Democrats and
10 Republicans opposing it.
The bill is an authorization
measure spelling out the scope of
the program but not financing it.
A separate appropriation would be
needed to put it into operation.
Sponsors of numerous amend-
ments made only token fights as
it became apparent that admin-
istration forces, with some Re-
publican help, were in complete
The only major amendment
adopted was approved by the bill's
floor manager, Rep. John A. Blat-
nik (D-Minn). Its sponsor was
Rep. Bernard F. -Sisk (D-Calif )
It broadened the formula for mak-
ing depressed areas eligible for
aid by adding about 100 counties
in 29 states. It was adopted by
standing vote of 90 to 56.
Sisk's amendment also increas-
ed from $400 million to $500 mil-
lion annually the amount of
grants that could be made to
finance public works projects in
eligible areas. But it limited that
phase of the program to four
years instead of the five in the
original. bill, thus retaining the
same money total. The grants
could be for as much as 80 per
cent of a project cost.
In addition to the $2 billion for
direct grants, the , bill would
authorize $850 million for long
term loans and loan guarantees,
$125 million for technical aid to
depressed areas, $75 million to
promote multistate cooperative
programs, and $200 million for
joint projects undertaken by
groups of areas.
Most of the authorizations would
be for five years.

But it ran up against a jam
of other administration-backed
bills in the full labor committee,
and Sen. Pat McNamara (D-Mich)
said he did not know when that
body could take it up.
The subcommittee approved the
bill 7 to 1 after voting unanimous-
ly to include a provision designed
to benefit persons who have con-
scientious scruples against join-
ing a union on religious grounds.
The "conscientious objector"
amendment was sponsored by Sen.
Wayne Morse (D-Ore). It provides
that a person who is a member
of a religious sect with tenets op-
posing union membership or an
individual with such scruples
could be exempted from the union
membership requirement if he
agreed- to pay the equivalent of
union dues to a charitable fund.
If the union could not agree on
such a fund, he could be exempt-
Sen. Winston Prouty (R-Vt)
failed in an attempt to have two
amendments attached to the bill.
Prouty's amendments would have:
--Allowed an election to rescind
a union shop to be decided on the
basis of a majority of those voting.
The present requirement is a ma-
jority of those eligible to vote.
-Provide that the National La-
bor Relations Board could not
invalidate the ,results of a repre-
sentation. election on the basis of
expressions of views by an em=
loyer where these contain no
threats of reprisal or force or no
promises of benefits.

PITTSBURGH - The United
Steelworkers Union accused the
basic steel industry yesterday of
risking a "shutdown of steel pro-
duction rather than consider real-
istically the urgent, critical needs
An editorial in the union's
monthly publication "Steel Labor"
criticized the industry for what it
called frittering away bargaining
time and for being obstinate,
shortsighted and self-defeating.
Although the publication went
to press several days ago, a un-

"still stand." The comment was
the first clear indication that top-
