ECONOMICS:
CENTO To Strengthen
Members Against Reds
LONDON W) - The Central Treaty Organization (CEN'tO) has
decided to strengthen.the economy of three of, its members, Turkey,
Iran and Pakistan, to combat Soviet penetration.
This was announced last night by British Foreign Secretary
Lord Home after the close of a two-day conference of the anti-
communist alliance. Britain is a partner in CENTO with the three
" nations. Secretary of State Dean
Rusk attended the conference as
an observer.
"At this meeting we paid a good
deal of attention - and this is
likely to be an increasing feature
of our activities - to social and
{ economic measures which would
add to the stability of the coun-
tries in the area of the organiza-
tion," Home said.
"There is a variety of projects
in hand which are being assisted
from the United States and the
United Kingdom and the purpose
of these projects is to strengthen
the economic base of the countries
in the region because we believe
that is one of the many ways of
containing Communism.
"Subversion in this region, as in
other parts of the world-, is a very.
real danger and so we have given
a good deal of attention to coun-
LORD HOME tersubversive measures and to
L ENTO aid improving the exchange of infor-
mation between the member coun-
tries "
FOLKS BILL: Thus the conference delegates

Pass Pan
n Districts
LANSING (P) - The Senate
agreed yesterday to go along with
a House plan to reapportion Mich-
igan's congressional districts, but
a veto by Gov. John B. Swainson
was expected.
The Senate agreed by a 19-9
vote yesterday to back down from
its amendments to the reappor-
tionment plan proposed by Rep,
James N. Folks, (R-Horton).
Sen. Raymond D. Dzendzel (D-
Detroit) democratic spokesman in
the Senate, predicted Swainson
was likely to veto the plan. The
governor already has vetoedk one
reapportionment proposal, drawn
up by Sen. Frank D. Beadle (R-
St. Clair). The governor claimed
Beadle's plan did not provide for
fair representation.
If the governor vetoes the Folks
plan, Michigan will elect a con-
gressman-at-large in November.
The Senate backed down after
the House rejected the plan pro-
posed by Sen. Carlton H. Morris
(R-Kalamazoo).
The main provision of the Folks
plan would create a new 19th con-
gressional district out of Lapeer.:
western Genessee and St. Clair
Counties. It also would reshuffle
other districts.
Ex lain Plans
For Space Lab
ST. LOUIS (R) - A space lab-
oratory capable of unfolding after
going into orbit was advanced yes-
terday as the answer to the prob-
lem of how such a large object
can be put into space.
E. A. Weber, an aviation expert,
predicted at a national meeting on
, manned space flight that the
space station - which would have
life sustaining facilities for 21
crewmen - soon can become a
reality.

had decided to set aside for the
time being military aspects of the
pact in favor of improving the
economic setup, including roads,
railroads and other communica-
tions, in the three vital Asian and
Middle East countries, he said.
The delegates ended the meeting
still split over the appointment of
a commander of their defense
forces. Home said they agreed to
try to settle their dispute directly.
Praise Code
Of State Laws
For, Busine6S'
Professors Roy L. Steinheimer
and William J. Pierce of the Law
School have praised the Uniform
Commercial Code recently adopt-
ed by the Legislature as a signifi-
cant step forward in consolidating
and streamlining laws governing
commercial transactions.
Prof. Pierce pointed out that. the
bill, covering 2,000 busness laws,
includes common terminology for
the previously separate provisions,
thus lessening misinterpretation
and chances of intra-state law-
suits.
"It should make it easier to do
business."
Citing the "horse and buggy"
commercial law system under
which Michigan had been operat-;
ing, Prof. Steinheimer said the,
measure "reflects the tremendous,
growth in our economy of credit"
by "bringing the law up to new
commercial techniques."
Scheduled to take effect Jan. 1,
1964, the code will have no direct
effect on the University, as it cov-
ers private business only.

Ask Change
In Provision
For Strikes
Propose Ba Effect
Only Vital Industries
WASHINGTON () - President
John F. Kennedy's Labor-Manage-
ment Advisory Committee yester-
day recommended broad revision
of the Taft-Hartley Law proced-
ures for handling emergency
strikes, including powers to rec-
ommend settlement terms.
The ieport was nearly unani-
mous among the industry, labor
and public members composing the
committee. Henry Ford II, head
of the auto firm bearing his name,
objected to most of the proposed
changes, saying "the present na-
tional emergency provisions, have
had remarkable success in fulfil-
ling their intended purpose."
Changes were proposed in the
present 80-day injunction provi-
sions of the law. The president, in-
stead, would be authorized to di-
rect the parties involved to con-
tinue or resume operations in
whole or, to the extent practicable,
in pant for periods up to 80 days.
Limit Provisions1
The committee also recommend-
ed that the strike-banning pro-
visions of the law could be limited
in the future' to only parts of
industries in which the national
health or safety. is affected. The
law now requires that a strike
ban must be applied throughout
the affected industry, or not at
all.
Only in the event the president's
no strike order in national emer-
gency disputes was violated would
he then seek an injunction to end
a walkout.
The settlement recommenda-
tions proposed to be authorized in
major strikes is contrary to the
present Taft-Hartley law provi-
sions, which specifically ban such
settlement recommendations.
Serious Consideration
Secretary of Labor Arthur J.
Goldberg, Chairman of the ad-
visory committee, said that Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy will give
the report serious consideration in
framing proposals for Congress.
Goldberg said he could not say
whether Kennedy's recommenda-
tions will follow those in the re-:
port or when Kennedy may sub-
mit his proposals to Congress. !

MAY DAY FLOAT-This float carrying a paper figures of Presi-

"Don't make the world a playground for H-bombs."
Speeches, Rallies Mark'
May Day Demonstration
By The Associated Press
Snake-dancing students and police fought in Toyko, and East
and West battered each others' eardrums with loudspeakers across
Berlin's Communist wall yesterday during the annual worldwide
observance of May Day.
Moscow's Red Square, for decades the center of the stage on
the international labor day observed in nearly all industrial nations
ada, was swept by heavy rain that I

dulled the usual glitter of the
parade.
Millions in the East Communist
capitals of Red China, North
Korea and North Viet Nam cele-
brated with rallies, speeches,
athletic meets and outings.
Loudspeakers Battle
The battle of the loudspeakers
broke out along Berlin's wall when
the Communists attempted to
drown out Gen. Lucius D. Clay
and other speakers at a rally of
about 700,000 West Berliners only
about 300 yards from the Red
wall.
A battery of 30 West Berlin
loudspeakers, mounted on six
trucks rolled up and began assail-
ing East Berlin ears with the
story of a Communist major who
had defected. The Communists
summoned noise reinforcements-
four more trucks in addition to
the seven already blasting away
with six amplifiers each.;
Calm Start
May Day in Toyko started calmly
in Meji park where 200,000 Japan-
ese massed under the eyes of
16,000 police and heard Com-
munist, Socialist and labor union
speeches containing fewer anti-
American jibes than usual.
But a column of 3,000 Zen-
gakuren studets, tired of this per-
formance, and began a dog-trot
snake dance shouting "stop the
nuclear tests." Both sides reported
50 persons were hurt when police
tried to break up the snake dance.
In Fidel Castro's Cuba, the cele-
bration began at midnight with
explosions of fireworks. Factory
whistles, ships' horn and loud-
speakers raised a bedlam early in
the morning to get out thousands
of straw-hatted workers for a giant
parade in Jose Marti plaza. The
demonstration before a giant dove
of 'peace was nonmilitary.
Despite fears of trouble from
resurgent Peronists, Argentina re-
ported the quietest May Day in 40
years.

WASHINGTON - A short-
handed Supreme Court, struggling
to wind up a difficult term by the
end of June, may put off some of
its major decisions until next fall.
Justice Felix Frankfurter's not
unexpected announcement Mon-
day that he will delay his return
to the high bench- until Oct. 1
caused increased speculation that
the next two months may not
bring final rulings on some of
these issues:
Is reciting prayer in public
schools a violation of the Consti-
tution?
May a corporation officer be
prosecuted under the Sherman
Antitrust Law for acts done in the
course of his official duties?
Were civil rights of nine per-
sons violated by their contempt
convictions for refusal to answer
questions of Congressional com-
mittees?
Postpone Cases
Justice Charles E. Whittaker's
retirement because of ill health
on April 1 led the court to put
over 12 cases for reargument next
fall. Frankfurter's decision to rest
until the new term seemed to
strengthen predictions that more
cases will be added to the list for
reargument.
Frankfurter suffered a stroke-
like illness at his desk four days
after Whittaker retired. He was
reported today to be continuing
his steady improvement.
Frankfurter and Whittaker,
along with Justices Tom C. Clark

LANSING--Gov. John B. Swain-
son signed into law yesterday the
so-called Saturday-or-Sunday re-
tail closing bill today-but with
considerable reluctance.
State government, he said,
should not step into the business
of regulating the days of the week
on which items may be sold.
