Kennedy Wins Victory
In 235-196 Vote,
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-The 88th Con-
'ess opened for business yester-
ay and dealt sudden death to
inservative members' hopes of re-
pturing control of the key House
ules Committee.,
This victory for President John
Kennedy had been expected, but
e size of his margin was a sur-
'ise. On the decisive vote in the
ouse, his supporters won 235 to

The vote kept the size of the
Rules Committee at 15 members. If
Kennedy's forces had failed, it
would have .reverted to 12 mem-
bers, leaving the committee in the
grip of a coalition of conservative
Republicans and Southern Demo-
crats opposed to major elements
of Kennedy's legislative program.
Coalition
The committee, which controls
the flow of most legislation to the
House floor, had been under the
domination of this coalition until
two years ago. Kennedy forces, led
by the late' Speaker Sam Rayburn,
then eked out a 217-212-vote vic-
tory that increased the size of the.
committee from 12 to 15 members.
With the help of Georgia Demo-
crats and some new Republicans,
Kennedy yesterday increased that
5-vote margin to 39 votes-a boost
that may buoy his hopes for
smoother sailing through Congress
this year.
Eight congressmen in the Geor-
gia delegation, who had voted
against Kennedy on the issue in
1961, voted with him this time.
Their new attitude reportedly was
based on the hope of placing one
of their number, Rep. Phil Lan-
drum (D-Ga) on the powerful
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee. Landrum has said that no such
deal was made.
No Rush
The victory does not mean Ken-
nedy and his legislative leaders will
rush any bill they want through
the Rules Committee. The com-
mittee, even with its enlarged lib-
eral-leaning majority in the 87th.
Congress, 'fsill blocked the admin-
istration's federal aid to education
bill from reaching the floor of the
House.
On the other side of the Capi-
tol, two senators announced yes-
terday their intention of introduc-
ing motions to change the rules on
halting a filibuster.
Under present rules, two-thirds
of senators voting can end a fili-
buster by voting to set a time limit
ondebate.
Sen. Clinton P. Anderson, (D-
NM) said he would try to change
the rple so that three-fifths of
the senators voting could close de-
bate after 15 days of a filibuster.

LONGSHOREMEN'S STRIKE:
Court Decides On Use
Of Shipping Personnel
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-A New York judge yesterday upheld the right of
the New York-New Jersey Waterfront 'Commission to permit use of
white collar personnel to do work normally handled by longshoremen.
The longshoremen have been on strike since Dec. 23.
State' Supreme. Court Justice Saul S. Streit made his ruling
shortly before mediators resumed efforts to get the strikingInter-
national Longshoremen's Association, AFL-CIO, and the New York
" Shipping Association together for
a new round{ of contract talks.
Picket Lines
In another development, Boston.
longshoremen defied a federal
court order yesterday and set up
picket lines as usual along the Bos-
ton waterfront.
In Washington, Labor Secretary
W. Willard Wirtz expressed opti-
mism over the course of negotia-
<.::'; tions in the strike. At the same
:?y:"time, he indicated the President is
cial legislation that might be pro-
posed to Congress to end the dock
strike, if normal methods fail.
Meanwhile, the number of
ocean-going ships tied up in New
York harbor reached a new high
of 108. President John F. Kennedy
was reported concerned at the ef-
fect of the tie-up on foreign aid
as international pressure mount-
ed for a settlement of the 18-day
JAWAHARLAL NEHRU work stoppage.

Hold Talks
WASHINGTON VP) - President
John F.:Kennedy and Soviet Depu-
ty Foreign Minister Vasily V. Kuz-
netsov met for an hour yesterday
and skimmed over Berlin and oth-
er problems that divide their two
countries.
It was the first high-level Unit-
ed States-Soviet discussion since
the formal ending of the Cuban
missile crisis.
The two also reviewed the nego-
tiations in New York, in which
Kuznetsov represented Russia,
pending a settlement of the Cuba
confrontation.
The unresolved problem of the
continued presence of Soviet troops
in Cuba remained unsolved, so far
as yesterday's meeting at the White
House was concerned.
United States officials say the
talks inaugurate a wider range of
discussions with , Russia. Even
Kennedy's conference with Deputy
Premier Anastas Mikoyan in No-
vember focused mainly on the
Cuban situation.
Neither the President nor Kuz-
netsov would reveal their other
topics, but likely subjects included
aspects of disarmament and nu-
clear testing, with an eye towards
the resumption of the Geneva
arms meetings on Tuesday.

To Introduce
Bill Asking
HUAC's End
WASHINGTON (AP)-Rep. James
Roosevelt (D-Calif) said yesterday
he will introduce a resolution pro-
viding for the House Judiciary
Committee to take over jurisdic-
tion of the House Committee on
Un-American Activities.
Roosevelt also told the House
that Rep. Francis E. Walter (D-
Pa), chairman of HUAC, had
agreed to help bring the resolution
to the House floor so that mem-
bers could work their will.
"That is all I can reasonably ex-
pect," Roosevelt told a reporter. "I
can't expect a chairman of a
standing committee to want to
vote himself out of his position."
Past Fights
Roosevelt, a perennial foe of
HUAC, has fought in the past to
prevent the House from appropri-
ating money for its work. He said
he would drop this approach in
favor of the new resolution.
The resolution, in effect, would
abolish HUAC as such, and would
make it a subcommittee of the
Judiciary Committee.
Walter is a ranking Democratic
member of the Judiciary commit-
tee, but its chairman is Rep.
Emanuel Celler (D-NY).
Second Try
Roosevelt's attempt this year is
his second try to curb the activi-
ties of the House committee. Two
years ago, he sought to have the
committee abolished, but only four
other representatives voted with
him.
However, the activities of the
committee, especially its recent
hearings on peace groups, may add
supporters to Roosevelt's cause.
Governor Submits
Austerity Program
ALBANY (P)-Gov. Nelson A.
Rockefeller submitted an austerity
program yesterday to the New
York State Legislature, in a mes-
sage that reflected his status as a
potential nominee for president.

fire in the India-China border
conflict.
" The Red Chinese proposal was
made in a letter from Communist
Chinese Premier Chou En-Lai to
Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal:
Nehru Dec. 20. The proposal and
Nehru's reply dated Jan. 1 were
made public by the Indian foreign
ministry.
Other Possibilities
Nehru wrote that instead of re-
peating old arguments they should
"explore what other possibilities
are available toavoid development
of further conflict." He referred to
the proposals of the six non-align-
ed nations that met last month in
Colombo.
Nehru also referred to his sug-
gestions in the Indian parliament
that the dispute be referred "for
a decision on its merits" to the In-
ternational Court of Justice at The
Hague.
Present Position
To stabilize the cease-fire, Chou
proposed that as the Chinese with-
drew, "Indian troops should stay
in their present positions along the
entire Chinese-Indian border,"
pending agreement on the disen-
gagement of forces.
Nehru called this the only new
suggestion in Chou's present let-
ter. He termed it worse than the
previous Chinese proposals.
The Chinese are holding fast in
the eastern area but are with-
drawing from northeast India. In-
dian troops have not yet re-occu-
pied the northeast. They are re-
maining on the Assam Plains
The Indians have also been
hanging back to avoid giving the
Chinese any provocation that
might bring renewed fighting.
