Kelley Brief
Sets Contest
Against Nord
L4ANSING (MP-It is too late now
to question' the validity of Michi-
gan's ,April 1. election which adopt-
ed a new State Constitution, At-
torney General Frank J. Kelley
told the Supreme Court Thursday.
The Attorney General and Soli-
oltor General Robert Derengoski
fileds ahbrief with the Court in
answer to a suit by Detroit attor-
ney' elvin Nord.
Nord, a Democratic delegate to
the Constitutional Convention,
asked the court to cancel the adop-
tion of the Constitution.
He contends the failure to pro-
vide separate ballots on the ques-
tion in voting machine precincts
made the election invalid.
The Attorney General argued
that even if Noerd's claim is cor-
rect, the /obection} would have to
have been raised prior to the elec-
Kelley also told the Court that
Nord failed -to show that the re-
sult of the election would have
been any different if separate pa-
s per ballots had been provided in
machine precincts.
Also, he argued, the voting ma-
chine arrangements did meet the
requirement for a separate ballot.
"The, present requirement of
'separateness' .is met when the
proposal is placed upon a separate
section of the voting machine, in
distinctive colors, and the voter
pulls down a separate lever to vote
on the proposition, and the vote
thus cast is registered upon a sep-
arate tape in the voting machine,"
Kelley said.
Kelley asked the Court to dis-
miss Nord's request for an order
to stop the State Board of Can-
vassers from certifying results of
the election.
The Board met Wednesday but
failed to act when Democratic
members said they wanted to wait
for a court decision in Nord's case.
The Court is expected to rule on
Nord's suit early next week. The
Board has until May 11 to certify
the election returns.

'Ruinous' To Security
WASHINGTON (AR) - President
John F. Kennedy personally re-
jected yesterday a charge that he
welshed on a promise of a second
invasion of Cuba.
Responding to the angry accu-
sation by exile leader Jose Miro
Cardona, Kennedy asserted that
"obviously nobody in the United
States government ever informed
Dr. Cardona, or anyone else, that
we would launch an invasion."
In a question and answer ex-

[anger in Federal Spending

he asserted vehemently that multi-
billion dollar slashes in his pro-
posed $98.9-billion budget would
be "ruinous to the security of our
nation and our economy."
The President also made plain

tive increases. He said the com-

Fren'ch Seit
To A dvance
On A-Force
PARIS (PM-President Charles de
Gaulle expressed determination.
last night to forge ahead with his
own nuclear strike force.
He also kept the door tightly
closed against British entry into
the European Common Market.
Survival of France in the nu-
clear age requires a purely French
national atomic force, the 72-year-
old de Gaulle told a nationwide
radio-television audience. He spoke
disdainfully of efforts to dissuade,
him, calling them the "voices of
immobilism and demagogy."
No Hint
While promising that France
would cooperate with its allies in
the Atlantic defense system, de
Gaulle gave no hint that he would
extend this cooperation to the
multinational nuclear forces back-
ed by the United States and most
of the other NATO allies.
A French nuclear strike force is
scheduled to be operational in
late fall.
De Gaulle spoke publicly for the
first time since the historic Jan.
14 news conference at which he
rejected a United States offer of
Polaris missiles to be employed in
an allied nuclear force.
Much Less
De Gaulle said that in the fu-
ture France cannot be sure of the
intentions of its allies, much less
of its enemies.
"Taking into account this im-
mense and inevitable uncertainty,"
he said, "France must possess the
wherewithal to reach any state
which was its aggressor, that is
the wherewithal to dissuade it,
from aggression, and according to
the circumstances, the wherewith-
al to contribute to the defense of
its allies . .
"Who knows?" he asked. "This
may include America."
French Sovereignty
De Gaulle underscored his in-
tention of asserting French sov-
ereignty in the Common Market,
too, saying that if the six states
were dissolved in the customs un-
ion this would "inevitably end in
foreign subjection."
He said France wanted to see a
unified Europe "constituted by na-
tions who really wish and can be-
long to it."
His implication was that Britain
could not now be included in this
"We hope that one day, per-
haps, the great English people,
having detached itself from that
which holds it outside our com-
munity, will come and join, ac-
cording to the conditions of the
(Common Market) institution."

Associated Press News Analyst f
States officials received with
growing alarm yesterdaydreports
of continuing heavy Communist
military attacks on neutralist forc-
es in Laos.
The whole policy of Laotian neu-t
trality, a shaky though highly
advertised experiment in cold war
compromise, appeared to be in in-
creasing danger of collapse.t
If the worst fears are bornej
out and the power of the neutral-
ist force at the center of the Lao-
tian coalition is destroyed, Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy will be con-
fronted directly with a questiont
whether the United States should<
intervene militarily in Laos.f
Bed Rock
Militarily, the bed rock concern
of United States leaders is to denyt
the use of the Mekong River Val-
ley to the Communists for moving
troops and supplies to pro-Com-
munist forces in Viet Nam. Poli-
tically the United States does not
want Ito see all of the little South-
east Asian kingdom's territory fall1
to the Communist Pathet Lao.
The Communists, however, have
demonstrated such military force,
reportedly with the backing of
tough troops from North Viet Nam,
that the survival power of the
neutralist forces under Gen. Kong
Le is now seriously questioned.

ployes yesterday apparently spell-

The Wichita rejection, by a
vote of 3,927 to 298, was a re-
versal of the approval given the
proposal at Boeing's other instal-
lations where the vote was 8,415
for it and 5,663 against.
The total vote as reported by
union officials was 9,590 against
accepting the contract and 8,13
Vita Mazzacano, union coordi-
nator at Wichita, emphasized that
this was a vote on the proposed
contract and not a strike vote.

If Kong Le loses the position in I
the Plaine Des Jarres, the Me-
kong River Valley may prove to be
the chief line of division in Laos
between the pro-Western forces
and those of the Pathet Lao. One
of the big questions which Kenne-
dy and his advisers will have to
decide in that event is whether
the presence of strong United
States forces, in the area, such as
were introduced in Thailand,
would be necessary to make even
the strategic Mekong River de-
fense effective.
Wider Implications
But the new Laotian crisis has
wider implications. Should the
Communists score continuing suc-
cesses there in spite of all the
efforts made in recent years to
stop them, the security of other
lands in the region would be more
directly threatened.
Laos also has become a symbol
and test of Russia's coexistence
It is a land sufficiently remote
from the immediate interests of
either of the great powers to make
compromise possible, and the neu-
trality solution worked out only
last year was such a deal. But for
months United States officials
have been getting bits and pieces
of evidence, which they generally
did not talk about publicly, that
the Communists on the scene were

Leighty Clains
Healthy State
Of Railroads
George Leighty of the Railway La-
bor Executives Association said
yesterday that rather than being
broke the railroad industry "as a
whole is actually in the healthiest
financial state in its history."
The rail labor union chief speak-
ing before a National Press Club'
luncheon accused the industry of
conducting a "Madison Avenue
propoganda" drive in an effort to
"hoodwink the Congress, the pub-
lic and railroad employes."
"Relying on clever words and
catchy phrases," Leighty said, "the
railroads have not missed one bet
in their massive propaganda drive
to convince the American people
that they are on the brink of fi-
nancial disaster, that they are be-
ing squeezed out by the competi-
tion of other forms of transporta-
tion, that they are the victims of
unfair government regulation . .
and that ,, because of so-called
'featherbedding,' they are being
forced by greedy union leaders to
pay excessive labor costs.
"The facts dispute every one of
these claims."
Leighty said the railroads are
the largest and most prosperous of
the common carriers. He said rail-
roal financial reports often con-
ceal their real financial position.
The carriers, he said, have been
steadily reducing their debts while
increasing dividends.
In the four decades since World
War I, Leighty said, railroad traf-
fic increased by 61 per cent while
labor man hours declined by 60
per cent yet "rail management
clings to its own fiction and wails
about high labor costs and too
many workers."
As for government regulation,
he said," "the fact is the railroads,
instead of being over-regulated,
have won more exemptions from
federal laws designed to protect
the public interest than any other
Leighty called for a moratorium
on railroad merger proposals pend-
ing a complete financial study of
the industry by Congress. He
pledged that if the industry ceases
trying to contract its services,
railroad workers will make the in-
dustry more successful than ever.
