20 A Thurs., March 25, 1965 ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH CONSERVA SWORN IN AS CEYLON LEADER COLOMBO, Ceylon, March 25 (AP) Mrs. Sirimavo Bandar-anaike's five years of leftist rule in Ceylon ended today. Dudley Senanayake, a pro-West-tern conservative, was sworn in as prime minister. Jubliant crowds lit firecrackers and cheered as Senanayake entered Queen's House to be sworn in before Gov. Gen. William Gopallawa. In a statement he appealed to all to "work together to tnake this a happier place for a free democratic people to live in under the rule of law and in peace and prosperity." Mr. Bandaranaike, the world's only woman prime minister, resigned because of her freedom party's defeat in the parliamentary elections Monday. The party ran second, winning 41 of the 151 seats. Although Senanayake's United Nationalist party was 10 seats short of a majority with 66, he said today that he had the Support of 90 members. The new government was expected to move quickly to improve relations with the United States and other Western nations. Its first task in this sphere would be to clear up claims by American and British oil firms whose properties were expropriated by Mrs. Bandaranaike in l2. The United States halted economic aid in retaliation but now appears willing to resume if Ceylon compensates the oil firms. Senanayake, who has been prime minister twice previously, promised to insure religious freedom, one of the campaign issues. He appealed to workers to help him take Ceylon through the "Critical times" it faces. Mrs. Bandaranaike became prime minister after the assassination of her husband, Prime Minister Solomon Bandaranaike. Her leftist regime charted an increasingly uneasy course through labor, language, religious and economic difficulties that carried the island nation of 11,000,000 persons to political instability and near bankruptcy. TAXICAB DRIVERS IN NEW YORK END 18-HOUR STRIKE C Iflfin. pw Vrk Time ptts Service NEW YORK. March 25 - New York taxicab drivers agreed yesterday to return to work after an 18-hour strike that was judged to be about 85 per cent effective. Police said that a survey of taxicab garages showed that 20 per cent of the taxicabs owned by fleet operators wore in the streets and that 3 per cent of the driver-owned taxicabs were working. Police reported a series of incidents directed against working drivers and some fleet owners. One young woman was injured slightly when a brick was thrown through a taxicab window. Eighteen men were arrested and charged with destroying property or threatening drivers. The Central Labor Council, comprising 500 unions, is attempting to organize the taxicab workers into a single, city-wide union. The walkout was part of the campaign to obtain recognition of the union.

He said it posed a danger for the Middle East. On his second day of a week-long state visit, Bourguiba told a joint session of the Parliament that the Palestine people yere the victims of injustice end that their plight "should not be dragged on any more." Bourguiba said Israel created danger and the latest example was the question of the waters of the Jordan river." Israel plans to take Jordan river water for irrigation and Arab neighbors plan countermeasures, such as diverting its headwaters. POLICE DEPT. EMPLOYE KILLED IN 2-CAR CRASH Gene E.

Assistant Police Chief Ray Poeschel of Overland, president of the North County Police Officers Association, said that association members agreed at a meeting last night that there was an urgent need for the laboratory. Poeschel said the four North County association representatives on the board of governors would check on the cost and feasibility of the laboratory and report to the full board. The board is made up of the four North County representatives, four from the St. Louis Law Enforcement Officers Association and representatives of other municipal and county offices. The chairman is Magistrate Peter J. Maniscalco of Clayton. St. Louis County Coroner Raymond 1. Harris, adressing the association, said, "We are not equipped to fight crime scientifically. Officers are trained to get evidence, but we have no experts who can appear in court." At present, he said, scientific crime research needed by county police must be done either by the St. Louis Police Department or the state patrol in Jefferson City. This often causes long delays, he said. NORWAY BARS RED PROTEST ON SPITSBERGEN STATION OSLO, Norway, March 25 (AP) Norway rejected yesterday a Russian protest against the building of an international telementry station at its Arctic ocean island of Spitsbergen. The Moscow government, in a note Feb. 17, charged that the activity of such a station for scientific research on space satellites might violate the Spitsbergen treaty. The treaty stipulates that Spitsbergen "may never be used for warlike purposes." Norway stressed its traditional interest in polar research, and said the site "has a particularly favorable situation for communication with scientific geophysical satellites, because it affords possibilities for direct registration of observations during each tour of satellites in polar orbit." OKLAHOMA JUSTICE IMPEACHED FOR BRIBERY OKLAHOMA CITY, March 25 (AP) The Oklahoma House of Representatives voted yesterday to impeach Supreme Court Justice N. B. Johnson, charging him with having accepted bribes in 1957 and 1959 in cases before the court. An hour later, Johnson suspended himself without pay but declared he would not resign. He denied the charges. Also accused of taking bribes was Justice Earl Welch, who resigned Monday. Welch and former Justice N. S. Corn were convicted of federal income tax evasion and Corn served part of his sentence. Welch has ap pealed. No criminal charges of bribery have been lodged agaim t either Welch or Johnson. FORDS END HONEYMOON NEW YORK, March 25 (AP)-Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ford II returned yesterday from a 32-day honeymoon in Europe. Ford said that he expected to stay in New York city for some time to attend business meeting FCC Members Air Dispute Over TV Programming Ideas WASHINGTON, March 25 (AP) Members of the Federal Communications Commission squabbled publicly yesterday over how much local, live programming should be originated by television stations. It was a polite fight, because it took place in full view of more than 1000 members of the National Association of Broadcasters. Behind the arguments lay a good deal of the internal politics of the FCC. They reflected the contrasting views, of several of the commissioners on the question of government regulation. The setting was the final meeting of the broadcasters association's annual convention. The six commissioners lined up on a stage and submitted to questions from the broadcasters. One dealt with local, live programming. FCC Chairman E. William Henry repeated his opinion that responsible FCC licensees must do more than carry network programs and old movies if they are to meet their obligation to the public. Commissioner Lee Loevinger often at odds with Henry on such policies scoffed at the idea. i "That kind of thinking is pretty muddy and contradictory," Loevinger said of Henry's opinion. "He's saying you've got to serve local needs and interests of the community whether the community wants it or not." This brought an ovation from the broadcasters, and Loevinger continued: "As far as I'm concerned, local-live ought to be dead. There's no reason to assume it's superior to any other kind of programming." He said that Henry's theory showed "a lack of realism and a basic naivete." Loevinger said that a recent network series on the United Nations "had everything going for it money, talent, a cause, sponsorship and a network. And the critics panned it. If a show like that doesn't make it, how is Joe Blow of Dubuoue. Iowa, going to come on with his local-live and do any better?" Loevinger repeated his contention that "as lousy as some programs are, it really isn't possible for us (on the FCC) to fulfill the idea of improving programming." With equanimity, Henry commented on Loevinger's remarks: "I'm used to it . . . that was just a mish-mash of erudite irrelevance." Commissioner Kenneth A. Cox teamed up with Henry, as he often does in FCC votes in this area, and said that Loevinger "either doesn't care what you do in the way of programming, or doesn't think you can do anything." Cox said that stations were given the right to operate "because you can contribute to your community. If you think you can enlighten your community, you have an obligation to do so." But if all a television station does is carry network pro grams, movie and sports, Cox said "you're simply a booking agent for living room theater." Commissioner Robert A. Bart-ley ended the lively debate by telling the broadcasters: "If you want to be only a rating - chasing entertainment medium, that's one tiling; if you want to be a communications medium, that's another. But the choice is up to you," SIX KILLED IN CRASH OF AIR FORCE CARGO PLANE CORDOVA, Md., March 25 (AP) An Air Force cargo plane caught fire and crashed yesterday after taking off from Dover Air Force Base, Del. All six men aboard were killed. None was listed as from the St. Louis area. The crash of the foar-engine craft was witnessed by several persons who said it crashed into a cluster of trees after losing part of a wing.
