(Republic Photo, Willis Peterson) In one case, it said, 1925 and 1926 wiretaps already had been made part of the public record in prior proceedings and the government was free to avail itself of them now. In the other case, the appeals court went on, 1943 wiretaps were made by the state, and the federal government did no connive m them. Therefore, it ruled, they, too, are admissible. The denaturalization case a prelude to deportation is one of three court actions in which Costello is embroiled. THE RACKETEER is appealing a five-year income tax evasion sentence on which he served 10 months before he was admitted to bail. He also is appealing a 30-day state contempt sentence on which he served 45 days before he was granted bail last May 22.

Mr. Eisenhower has argued repeatedly that the bill which would mean a basic increase of $546 a year for the nation's 518,000 postal workers, was inflationary and DEATH yesterday ended the long career of public service of Mit Simms, Arizona corporation commissioner, one - time secretary of state, and the state's second treasurer.

WHEN LL'KE officials called CAA's attention to the hazard, a series nf conferences resulted in CAA instructions for the military fliers to maintain an altitude of 3 000 feet or less while crossing the airway. The CAA is responsible for control of domestic air traffic. Because of danger, both to the military pilots and to civilians on the ground, Luke filed a notice of noncompliance with (he CAA and sought a compromise which would have permitted its flights to cross at 3,300 feet. For the time being, at least, that compromise was ruled out by yesterday's directives, i Airlines and other traffic using armed services subcommittee was told yesterday that General Motors Corp. reaped an almost double profit of $17,459,000 by misstating or overstating production costs on a 1952-55 contract for fighter planes.

The settlement, which was; on a wage reopener in a contract expiring next April 15, 1959, came just two hours before a strike deadline. The 15-cent package included a half-cent night shift bonus adjustment which was made previously with the understanding it would be incorporated in the money by backers of the measure, predicted the measure would run into a presidential veto. Several other congressmen echoed Smith's warning. The house tentatively approved the measure while sitting as a committee of the whole to consider amendments.

Supporters said postal workers needed the raise to meet the rising cost of living. THE INCREASES, averaging about 124 per cent, would take effect Sept. 1 and would cost the government about $317,500,000 a year, not including overtime and fringe benefits. . The house approved only one amendment. It voted to give rural carriers the same $546 basic increase which would go to all other postal employes. The rural carriers originally were grouped with fourth class postmasters who would be increased 12 per cent with a $546 top.
