UB— A shim- |barrass Reuther Wheel forced GM Delays in Bid lo Settle, Deadline Near By NORMAN WALKER DETROIT UP) — The auto labor situation developed into a Grade A mystery story today as General Motors Corp. delayed making its bid for a contract settlement before- a fast-approaching tomorrow midnight strike deadline. GM's game apparently was to wait almost to the llth hour, fling an offer at Walter Reuther, president of the CIO United Auto Workers Union, and give the union little time to argue, only to make a yes or no answer. Lack of any protest over the delay from Reuther or UAW Vice President ohn Livingston, head of the union's GM department, led to belief they had some assurance from GM negotiators that the eventual offer would contain the basic principle of the guaranteed wage. Reuther already has won a modified guaranteed wage plan from the Ford Motor Co. providing for a system of company-financed payments for laid-off workers augmenting state unemployment compensation pteylmenlts, iplus pay boosts and pension, holiday and vacation improvements. If GM negotiators Harry W. An- reserves bill, derson and Louis G. Seaton have given Reuther advance assurance they will make a guaranteed wage offer patterned after the Ford plan there was guessing GM might do so in a manner that would em- Highway Foreman Killed Instantly CLARKSVILLE, UP) — An Arkansas Highway Department foreman was killed instantly today when a truck backed over him two miles east of here just off High 64.

Radford Cites Heed for Full Defense Money WASHINGTON, (INS- — Adm. Arthur W. Radford said today there will be an "important deficiency" in the nation's defenses if Congress fails to pass the House- shelved military reserves bill. The chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and Defense Secretary Charles E. Wilson sent the Senate Armed Services committee statements endorsing continuation of the Qraft law on which the committee is holding hearings. But they, as well as assistant defense secretary Carter L. Burgess, who appeared in person, used the occasion as a forum to urge action on President Eisenhower's and even enda .* ,a-who was mayor of Clairton, Pa., • from 1938 through 1953, already has sworn at a closed hearing that he never was a Communist partj member, the Senate Internal Se curity subcommittee said.

Maz zei, of Pittsburgh, a theater oper- . ator and former FBI informam lrf| who identified Mullen yesterday ''He said the record of any cpn !; flicting testimony would prob ably be sent to the justice depart,; ment. Mazzei testified yesterday that ;,; he had attended at least two meet; ings restricted to Communist par~{ ty functionaries at which Mullen i was present. ; He said that a party functionary ' as distinguished from jusi a party member, "helps set up the ',§ rules and the way the Communist party operates."

HOPE, ARKANSAS Advertised LITTLE ROCK I/P) — The Ar- 'kansas Nurses Association is protesting a state Board of Education decision that probably will result in the closing of practical nursing schools at Texarkana, Pine Bluff, Joneaboro and Little Rock. Funds for the schools will be cut off July 1 as part of an econ omy move by the Board of Education. In a letter to board members yesterday, Mrs. Christine E. Need- ; |)ham of Pino Bluff, president of • the ANA, called the decision dis- riminatory and said it was an indication of a "lack of understanding," She protested the board's stand that practical nurse training was a health problem and not an educational problem. "All other members of the health team — doctors, dentists, phar- Final Drive Between GM, UAW Group By REY W. BRUNE DETROIT (UP)— General Motors and the CIO United Auto Workers started a final drive today toward a new agreement by Sunday's midnight strike deadline with 60,000 workers already idle because of wildcat strikes. Wage talks went into the final 72 hours masked under a self-imposed "news blackout." But nego tiators appeared confident a new agreement would be worked out and a major strike prevented. . "Impatience" strikes earlier this week forced General Motors to shut down 20 plants employing nearly 60,000 workers today because of parts shortages. The last of the wildcat strikes came to an end today when 5,000 workers at the Buick-Oldsmobilc- Pontiac plant at South Gate, Calif., voted to return to work. They removed their picket lines.and workers returned to their regular shifts. Meanwhile, contract talks between GM and the CIO United Auto Workers appeared headed into the same kind of a stretch drive that produced the union's first guaranteed wage pact with Ford Motor company earlier this week. CIO President Walter Reuther recalled that the Ford talks went to the limit before an agreement was reached guaranteeing Fnrd workers between 60 and 65 per cent of their normal take-home pay during 26 weeks of layoff. "We're prepared to go to the limit with General Motors too," Reuther said. "Where there's life there's hope and there's a lot of life here." Reuther voiced his optimistic outlook after a long bargaining ijo^newsmen session that broke up shortly be- ..... fore midnight. The UAW scheduled Charles Pritchard to postpone today attempt to fly his wingless airship. But the 46-year-old railroad gang his guaranteed wage idea completely. It was speculated that GM might make two offers, one like the Ford plan and another proposing much foreman, undaunted, said he hopes j larger cash pay boosts . for GM to "try again in 10 days or two workers, with the suggestion the weeks," or just as soon as he canjuAW let the workers choose be- the two plans.

Also back to town went some 1,500 persons who had gathered at the Emporia airport early this morning to watch Pritchard try to get his ship off the ground. The ship almost came to grief on the fourth of the five taxi runs it made when it ran off a runway into a rough field. Pritchard lost steering control shortly after beginning the fourth taxi run. The ship was pulled back on to the runway by Pritchard's friends. Apparently undamaged by its bumpy 100-foot sally into the field, the ship started immediately on its fifth run. "She tried to fly on very low throttle," the 46-year-old railroad gang foreman told reporters just before he bagan the fifth run. A crowd estimated at 1,500 assembled early today at the Emporia airport for their first look at the aluminum ship which Pritchard built in Klugel's Metal Shop. pany stock at half price and the UAW's guaranteed wage plan. Ford never took up the vote offer, but .instead utlimately nego- jtiated a guaranteed, wage. Any GM offer providing for a fat pay raise, either alone or as an alternative to the gauranteed wage, might put Reuther on the spot. Kennon Vetoes Louisiana School Bill BATON ROUGE. La. — Gov.

Radford said that even if the draft act is "continued, "thare will still -remain an important deficiency in our defense program whicji must be remedied, namely the . serious shortcomings in our reserve program." Hej said that improvement of the res.erve forces to "meet today's requirements for rapid mobilization'^ is a "must." He urged that the a-eserve bill be given "the earliest possible consideration." Wilson said the continuation of the .'draft law an,d passage of the reserve bill taken together will give the nation the "best approach" to security. Burgess said he appeared "to support as strongly and clearly as my heart and mind will permit the realistically conceived and equitable reserve program of the president." He-termed it a "critical defense" measure and said we form ulated aftes "many months by the for tand close attention" by the president, the National Security Council, the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and others, MAN.
