MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) — Tlie Senate hopes to act by nightfall on a compromise plan aimed at getting striking airline machinists machinists back on their jobs for up to six months. The proposal would divide responsibility between Congress and President Johnson in these three steps: 1. Congress would order tlie strikers back to their jobs for .30 days. 2. The President could appoint appoint a special airlines dispute panel to serve as mediators in conti'act bargaining. This action would freeze the situation and keep the men on their jobs for another 60 days. 3. If an agi-eement is not wprked out in that period, the President could extend the panel's panel's efforts and the back-to-work freeze for another 90 days. "This is a proposal that seems to have the greatest amount of support," said Sen. Jacob K, Javits, R-N.Y., who helped turn it out Wednesday in a hectic series of cloakroom conferences and later described the compromise compromise to newsmen. The Senate was to meet earlier earlier than usual, in an effort to act before the day is out. "It will be the duty of the members to labor with this matter matter until we complete it," said Senate Republican Leader Everett Everett M. Dirksen. But Sen. Wayne More, D- Ore., indicated there may be alterations in the compromise plan, advanced as an alternative alternative to legislation which would leave to Johnson any strike-ending strike-ending decision.
