Wirtz Opposes Effect
Of Cutting work Week
WASHINGTON (P)-Cutting the work week by law from 40 to 35
hours would not solve unemployment and might actually reduce jobs
in some industries, Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz said yesterday.
Testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee, Wirtz
described President John F. Kennedy's tax reducing and revising plan
as "the top-priority item on the agenda of labor interests this
year." The key to creating jobs, he said, is "to release purchasing power

WASHINGTON VP)-Sen. Ken-

Keating said he passed his in-
formation and advice along to
John A. McCone, director of the3
Central Intelligence Agency.
Neither Keating nor McCone
would give details about what the
senator told the CIA chief on a
visit to Keating's office. But Keat-
ing said, "Mr. McCone has told me
these recommendations will be
transmitted to the President."
Keating added that none of his
recommendations "involves mili-
tary action against Cuba." He said
the added data he gave the in-
telligence chief involve reports of
a military buildup "which I have
not been able to confirm and which
I have not publicly 'revealed."
Marks First Action
Under Recent Law
WASHINGTON (M)-The United
States told Ceyloi yesterday that
a $3.8 million aid program is being
halted until Ceylon appropriately
compensates two American oil
companies for properties nation-
alized last June.
The Agency for International
Development said that within 30
days its mission-including 15
technicians and five administra-
tors-would be returned to the

In a note to the Ceylon govern-
ment, Ambassador Frances E. Wil-

of the new law which says United
States assistance shall remain
suspended until appropriate steps
are taken to compensate American
companies for private property
which has been nationalized.
This left an implication that

Not for Substitutes

a shorter work week, which he
agreed had been the historic ad-

He said, however, that most of!
the time the lessening of working
hours had been accomplished "by
collective bargaining and private
adjustment." This is continuing,'
and he approves of it.
The AFL-CIO is urging a reduc-
tion of the work week by statute.
But, Wirtz said, a legislated,
across-the-board cut in hours
"would not in itself be the right
answer. It would increase costs sa

Wirtz acknowledged that there

But he said the gains being made
in this direction are measured in
the thousands, while unemploy-
ment remains in the millions.

WASHINGTON (P)-New York
Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller says a
Republican standard-bearer can
unhorse President John F. Ken-

a mistake for the GOP to settle
on its champion now.
"The important thing is to
strengthen and unite the party,"

ference Wednesday, must offer
constructive alternatives to ad-
ministration programs and develop

Hit Tax Cut,

F. Kennedy's tax-cutting proposals
as "undoubtedly the biggest eco-

A statement by the GOP leaders
said the administration's program
is based on a philosophy which
says that "the only choice is be-
tween two kinds of deficits.
The statement was adopted
Wednesday at the first meeting
at this Congressional session of
top GOP leaders in both houses.
It was released yesterday without
the usual televised news confer-
ence by Senate Minority Leader
Sen. Everett M. Dirksen and
House GOP leader Rep. Charles A.
The Republicans said Kennedy
has described as the "core" of his
program for solving unemploy-
ment a $10.2 billion net tax cut,
a $4.5 billion increase in federal
spending and a $12 billion deficit.
They charged the administra-

Congress will be a reduction in
federal spending which can lead

acted by Republican congresses
