Senate Votes



WASHINGTON () - Senate
hearings on drug industry prac-
tices were suspended indefinitely
yesterday with a statement by
Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn.),
that slanted advertising claims
present an intolerable situation.
Kefauver said it was clear from
testimony that disagreements be-
tween medical and advertising
men over advertising claims were
not always settled in favor of. the
Situation Bad
That this is a bad and Intoler-
able situation is recognized by the
Pharmaceutical Manufacturers
Assn. in its own code of ethics,
Kefauver said. Quoting the code's
declaration that all medical
claims in promotional material
should have "medical review" be-
fore being released, Kefauver said
rigorous enforcement of the code
"would be a good place to begin."
"If they do not do so," Kefauver
said, "I have no doubt that the
Congress, or an agency of gov-
ernment, will do it for them."
Kefauver is chairman of an
Antitrust and Monopoly Subcom-
mittee that has been investigating
pricing and other practices in the
drug industry.
Hearings Impossible
He said it was impossible to
continue the hearings under pres-
ent conditions which forced the
subcommittee to meet early in the
morning and late at night to avoid
conflicts with the Senate debate
on civil rights legislation.
During the civil rights debate,
the Senate is enforcing a rule that
committee meetings may not be
held while the Senate is in session.
Kefauver said that unless the
Pharmaceutical Code gives medi-
cal men clearcut authority over
advertising claims it is just
"meaningless double talk" which
at best would cause confusion and
at worst would present "a source
of danger to the patient's health."

Imagine the life and problems

themselves hardly know what to

Face Problem
Hong Kong is not completely
bewildered by this problem; it is
facing up to it. After its founding,
it developed excellent urban serv-
ices, and educational facilities in
western style. This stable devel-
opment ended with the Japanese
invasion. After four years of pri-
vation and neglect, refugees began
to flood in.
This flood, which has trebled
the population, soon overwhelmed
the local community, and with it
came the Korean War. New in-
dustries and civic projects have
been started, but inevitably the
development and welfare pro-
gramshave lagged behind the
In higher education an entirely
new problem has emerged. After
1949, if you had been educated in
a Chinese-speaking school you had
no chance of going to university
unless you were prepared to go
to the mainland; and probably
never return.
Start Schools
Refugees started new schools in
Hong Kong which carry on the
traditions of former mainland
universities, but they are still new
and insufficient.
Generally, the 4,000 students,
whether refugees or not, range in
financial circumstances from poor
to utterly destitute. If they receive
no education, as laborers they can'
expect to earn no more than $10
a month. Furthermore, neither
their overcrowded homes or their'
inadequate school libraries furnish
ample study facilities.
Their educational problems are
intensified by the necessity in
even "Chinese Colleges' to acquire
at least a reading knowledge of
English. These students have
little or no time for relaxation,
plus the psychological stresses of
being uprooted from their homes
and anxiety about their families.

maneuver "a straw man erected

Vote on Meeting
The vote came on the question
of whether the Senate should
meet only until 5 p.m. on Mon-
day instead of staying in session
around the clock.
Johnson said he made a motion
to adjourn at that hour so that
the majority of the Senate could
express its will. Johnson himself
voted against it.
On the roll call vote, 45 Demo-
crats joined by 22 Republicans
voted against the motion. The
southern Senators split 8-8, with
Russell among those opposing the
motion. Two Republicans voted
for it.

After making his promises, the
committee told the Senate in a re-
port, Hoffa set up in Miami what
it termed a "Racket Local," No.
320. It said he installed Harold
Gross, whom it called a convict-
ed extortionist and known fixer,
as the local's president. Hoffa has
been pumping $3,000 a month sub-
sidies from his union's funds into
the local, the report said.
Committee Charges
The committee charged that a
purported anti-corruption com-
mission set up by Hoffa at the
union's expense was a coverup op-
eration. Former Sen. George H.
Bender (R-Ohio), resigned re-
cently as the commission's head.

alleged, "was formed merely for
purposes of deception - to con-
ceal from the committee, the

In sum, it said, Hoffa is con-
temptuous of law and order.
The report is the first of four
which the committee is issuing on
its 1958 and 1959 investigations in
various labor-management fields.
In one section, the report said
the committee is unanimous in
viewing payoffs exacted by racke-
teers from some big metropolitan
newspapers and publishing firms
as a "potential threat to freedom
of the press."
Review Findings
The findings reviewed testimony
that payoffs had been extorted as
a price for labor peace, to avert
costly stoppages of the wholesale
delivery of newspapers, newspaper
supplements and magazines.
The report said payments ag-
gregating $307,136.60 had been
made to Gross and Cornelius (Con-
nie) Noonan, his labor union ally,
by The New York Times, The New
York Mirror, The Neo-Gravure
Printing Co. of Weehawken, N.H.,
and the American Weekly, owned
by the Hearst Publishing Co., Inc.
It said American Weekly paid to
protect its deliveries of supple-
ments to The New York Journal-
American. There was no comment
on the report by the newspapers.
Noonan is head of the Inland
Terminal Workers Local No. 1730
of the International Longshore-
men's Assn.
The report also charged that
racketeers had extorted large sums
from New York area wholesale
distributors of newspapers and
magazines, and had infiltrated
some of the firms and unions with
which the delivery firms bargain.

Princess Tells
Nuptial Plans
To. Conmoner
LONDON () - Princess Mar-
garet last night put the shadow of
a broken romance behind her and
announced her engagement to a
commoner, Anthony Armstrong-
Jones, photographer for2Britain's
royal family. Both are 29.
The princess' betrothal came
just a little more than four years
after she renounced her love for
Group Capt. Peter Townsend -
and two months after his mar-
riage to his Belgian secretary.
Armstrong-Jones, educated at
Eton and Cambridge in a classic
pattern from Britain's upper
middle class, has moved for two
years in the exclusive set of com-
moners around the throne. As a
court photographer, he has been
a constant escort for the princess.
Together they have spent many
hours together in the palaces and
country retreats of the royal
Armstrong-Jones is just five
months older than the princess.
Her marriage will not affect her
position as fourth in line of suc-
cession to the throne, after Queen
Elizabeth's three children.
