Strikes: One Halted, Two Continui

NEW YORK (M - President
Lyndon B. Johnson invoked th'
Taft - Hartley law last night
against a threatened Atlantic an
Gulf coast strike by 60,000 long
shoremen. The main issue at dead-
lock was an old one-automation
on the docks.

late last night that the law had
been invoked too late to halt the
strike at midnight. ILA President
Thomas Gleason announced that
"until we are notified officially
and served with the proper papers,
the strike is still on."
But Johnson's action insures
that the strike will be short-lived,

more than $20 million for every
day the piers are idle. As many as
800,000 persons in the New Yolk
area alone have jobs connected
with the shipping industry.
The last ILA strike in 1962-63
was the longest and costliest on
record-lasting 34 days, tying up
610 ships and costing an estimated
$800 million.
The chief issue then, as yester-
day, was the replacement of work

Hartley Act inordering an 80-day cooling off period to halt a
longshoreman's strike. However, ILA President Thomas Gleason
(left) refused to stop the strike until served with official papers.
A brighter note came from GM Vice-President Louis Seaton who
appeared confident that the auto negotiators are progressing
toward settlement.

bill recessed yesterday while proponents of health care for the aged

adjournment rush.
The conferees will meet again today.
The separate bills passed by both houses contain identical pro-
visions which will bring more than 1000 students here around $80
monthly. The bills stipulate that students in college may receive
the insurance of their retired or deceased father past the current
18-year-old cutoff point.
