Railroad May Avert Strike

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - A railroad
spokesman said yesterday that.
though union moves had raised
the threat of an early nationwide
strike, he thinks a crisis can be

J. E. Wolfe, chief negotiator for
about 200 lines, said at a morning
news corference "the railroad op-
erating u n i o n s have again
brought the country to the verge
of a national railroad strike."

TWENTY YEAR STYLE-The two top members of the Mich-
iganensian staff for 1965, Michael A. Galle, '65, business man-
ager (left) and Robert J. Shenkin, '65BAd, editor, were an-
nounced yesterday by the Board in Control of Student Publica-
tions. Shenkin cited his goal to create a yearbook vivid for the
reader 20 years from now.
As 'Ensian Editor
Robert J. Shenkin, '65BAd, was installed last night as the new
editor of the Michiganensian, succeeding Ron Kramer, '64.
The Board in Control of Student Publications also selected
Michael A. Galle, '66, business manager; Miss Diane Pierson, '65, copy
editor; Miss Patti Joseph, '65, personnel manager; and Miss Joan
Wolfsheimer, '66, layout editor.
Shenkin, a 19-year-old pre-law student from Wynnewood, Ja.,

He went on to say he had "un-
impeachable advice" that five
operating unions had firm plans
to by-pass the national negotia-
tions by striking today against
the Southern Pacific and the
Louisville and Nashville. This,
Wolfe contended, could trigger a
national walkout.
But after union denials of strike
plans, Wolfe issued a sttement
last night saying that "in view of
the apparent reversal of their (un-
ion) strike plans, the railroads
now are optimistic that a crisis
can be avoided."
Wolfe noted that railroad rep-
resentatives will meet today with
Secretary of Labor W. Willard
Wirtz "to discuss procedures that
may dispose of remaining issues"
between the carriers and the un-
"The railroads will not seek
injunctive restraint in the courts
unless there is the threat of a
strike," he said.
A union official, H. J. Roadcup,
said "rumors" that strike is im-
minent on the L & N "have nof
basis in fact."
The statement by Roadcup, gen-
eral chairman for the Brother-
hood of Locomotive Engineers on
the L & N, was issued through
the union's national headquarters
at Cleveland, Ohio.
Neil P. Speirs, president of the
Switchmen's Union of North Amer-
ica, said in Buffalo:
"As far as our union is con-
cerned, we have not set a strike
date. Mr. Wolfe is premature in
his assumptions."
Wolfe made four specific sug-
gestions to Wirtz to get the nego-
tiations back on the track:
1) Voluntary arbitration of all
issues unsettled;
2) Voluntary arbitration of*
money matters;
3) A no-strike moratorium until
the end of this year;
4) A no-strike moratorium until
after a settlement is reached with
non-operating unions.

In- Housing'
Eugene E. Haun, director of
University residence halls, has
announced proposed changes in
housing for next year due to an
enrollment of 500 new freshmen
over capacity-300 men and .2001
"We are going to house in
existing dormitories all of those
students we are ordered to house
by the Regents," Haun said.
To accommodate the increased
number of students it may be
necessary to convert some doubles
to triples and some singles to
doubles. Haun stated that a sin-
gle room can be converted into a
double even though a student signs
a room contract for a single.
According to Haun, the rooms
that will be considered for sch
changes are those which can hold
another set of furniture. Maxine
Loomis, '65, Assembly Association
president, said that the dormitor-
ies under consideration for the
proposed changes are Couzens and
"The University is not com-
manded to house graduate stu-
dents," said Haun. Any male in
graduate or professional school
who currently holds a contract in
Tyler or Prescott House may sub-
mit applications for next year and
they will be placed, but the Uni-

Walk Out
In Protest
NEW YORK P) - Grass roots

school boycott here yesterday, but
267,459 pupils missed classes dur-

tion offices in Brooklyn by Rep.

The school board, however,

Normal daily absenteeism in this
million-pupil public school system,
largest in the nation, is 100,000.
During the first boycott, Feb. 3,
there were 464,362 pupils out.
The Rev. Milton A. Galamison,
leader of the boycott, lost much of
the organized support he had six
weeks ago. Organizations which
backed away from today's protest
included the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored
People, the National Congress of
Racial Equality, the Urban League
and the National Association for
Puerto Rican Civil Rights.
Into the breach stepped Powell
and Malcolm X, The rebel Black
Muslim leader.j

Neither Powell nor Malcolm X
joined the thin picket lines set up
at 104 of the city's 863 schools.
In reporting the official absen-
tee figures, Board of Education
President James B. Donovan said
that "We are encouraged that the
boycott method of expressing a
point of view is regarded with
markedly diminishing favor."
The Rev. Mr. Galamison viewed
the demonstration as "a good boy-
cott, a formidable one, a success."
It was apparent that many stu-
dents made last-minute decisions
to participate since they carried
books under their arms while
walking picket lines or standing

To Reclaim
Democrats Praise
Proposal as Vital
To U. Prosperity
WASHINGTO N - President
Lyndon B. Johnson called yester-
day for enlistment of 100,000
draft rejectees and school drop-
outs in a Job Corps to be re-
claimed "for a productive role in
American society."
This was a key proposal as u
Johnson sent his long-awaite
message on poverty to Congress.
The legislation was introduced in
both House and Senate, where
Democratic. leaders already have
made plans to push for quick pas-
Democrats hailed the proposals
as an essential program for con-
tinued prosperity in America.;
There was no immediate comment
from Republicans.
Referred to Committee
House Speaker John W. Mc-
Cormack (D-Mass) said the bill
would be referred to the House
Committee on Labor and Educa-
tion, headed by Rep. Adam Clay-
ton Powell (D-NY).
Although McCormack said the
bill is so important that it should
be passF-2 quickly, he made no
predictions as to its chances in
this session of Congress.
Sen Hubert H. Humphrey (D-
Minn). aist nt Senate mao-ity
leader, was mhore optimistic.
'Very Commendable'
"The President has made sontre
very commendable recommenda-
tions. I think Congress is going
to cooperate with him on this mat-
ter. I don't see how we can turn,
Sour -acis to this problem," he
Humjhrey noted that the Sen-
ate already has approved legisla-
tion embodying some of the main
features of the President's pro-

sor of the youth employment bill,
which calls for a Youth Conser-

From the Least Fit
Johnson said his Job Corps
would ae recruited "from those
whose tackground, healtn and eu-
ucation make them least fit for
useful work."
The legislation has a $962.5-
million price tag, but Johnson
stressed all of the money has been
provided in his budget for the
next fiscal year.
As an example, the $160 milon
set aside for the youth eniploy-
ment bill has been included in the
poverty program.
Rural Battles
Other provisions in the poverty
program called for creation of an
office of economic opportunities,
headed by Sargent Shriver; crea-
tion of a Domestic Peace Corps,
a program of grants for commun-
ity and rural battles against pov-
erty and- low interest loans to
stimulate. new jobs and help sub-
sistence farmers.
Johnson said high priority
should be given "to helping young
Americans who lack skill, wiro
have not completed their educa
tion or who cannot complete it be-
cause they are too poor."
Latest figures show unemploy-
ment among teenagers, those in
the 16 to 21 age bracket who are
not in school, running at about 15
per cent, almost three times the
level for the nation as a whole.

Work, Study
In addition to the Job Corps,
Johnson also called for a work-
training program to encourage
youngsters to stay in high school
and a work-study program to help
young men and women complete
All three programs cente ,on
the 16 to 21 age bracket.

Dixon announced at the opening
of the hearings that the commis-
sion had extended to April 15 the,
time for filing opinions on its pro-
posals. Originally the deadline
was March 2.
