Elmer Klntham Kaiser, Union agree on contract change FONTANA-Kalser Steel Corporation and the United Steelworkers of America on behalf of Fontana Plant Locals 2869 and 3677, announced this week they have reached agreement during their recent contract reopener discussions. These new agreements amend the June 12, 1962 contracts to provide greater benefits in the areas of vacation, insurance, and contract language clarification. The vacation improvements, to be effective January 1, 1964, wil provide (he more senior employees with 13 weeks' extended vacations every five years. The current savings and vacation plan •will be replaced on January 1, 1964, by Uie extended vacation provision which also grants additional vacation benefits to the junior employees. EffecUve August 1, 1963, the in surance program wil be improved to provide $300 additional basic life insurance for active em ployees and e.\panded weekly ac cident and sickness benefits. In the continuing effort to reduce the areas of misunderstanding, the agreement provides for a unique experimental period from August 1, 1963 through December 31, 1964, during which specific guideposts are to be applied in the areas of contracting out, supervisors working, overtime, and job assignments. The production and maintenance job description and classification committee has been assigned to reveiw revisions in the manual. These revisions were adopted in the negotiations in the basic steel industry to become effective January 1, 1963. Under terms of the Long Range Sharing Plan, the cost of the economic improvements of the agreements will be derived from the employees' share of savings made under the Plan.

The singers are uninhibited and only a person with poor hearmg or no emotional traits is likely to remain still. One question arises: Should gospel singers appear in a commercial night spot? For those who say "no," there are as many who say "yes." Mahalia Jackson, who has been singing gospel music m concert halls around the world, objects to pop gospel singing. "These people are taking a precious thing and steppmg on it," she said. "Just like the American flag stands for something, so does gospel music have significance." Miss Jackson is an artist under contract to Columbia Records, which has produced three new albums of pop gospel music, and it is movuig music. They are "Introducing The Sweet Chariot" (Columbia CL-208I), "Shoutin', Wailin', Hard Drivin' Pop Gospel" (Columbia CL-2062) and "Everybody's Shoutm' Gospel" with the Herman Stevens Singers (Epic LN- 24062). A group known as "The Sweet Chariot Singers" is heard in full on "Shoutin', Wailin' " and shares the stage with the Golden Chords and the Nathaniel Lewis Singers on "Introducing the Sweet Char iot."

(Debro 600), Loma Linda plans teaching lab in Mexico Extension of Loma Linda University's research and teaching programs into the tropical jungles of Southern Mexico was foreseen today in an announcement by Thomas A. Little, Ph.D., Dean of the University Graduate school. Dr. Little reported approval of an agreement between the University and Slexican officials clearing the way for construction of a permanent teaching biological laboratory near the Village of Pueblo Nuevo. Arrangements with education officials in Jlexico's southernmost state were finalized last week by Robert L. Cone, Vice President for Financial Affairs. Facilities will include a laboratory, dormitories for students, and quarters for a resident director and a caretaker, according to Mr. Cone. The station will be situated on the campus of the CoUegio Linda Vista, a Seventh-day Adventist school in Chiapas, he said. Dr. Little said that studies emanating from the new laboratory will be largely in the fields of parasitology, entomology, and mammalogy, with emphasis on biological life peculiar to the area. Plans for the project were developed by Raymond E. Ryek- man, Ph.D., Edward D. Wagner, Ph.D., and Gayle H. Nelson, Ph.D., all of the Graduate School Department of Biology. An important objective of the research project is a better un derstanding of diseases and condi tions prevailing in many tropical areas of the world. It is hoped that science teaching at the sec ondary school where the station will be located may benefit as an indirect result of the project, according to the University announcement. "The project," said Dr. Little, 'is in keeping with a trend among many American universities establishing field stations n tropical or subtropical areas. We need to know more about life in the earth's vast tropical areas if we are successfully to meet future human needs in health and nutrition. The new biological laboratory is dedicated to the ultimate objective of meeting these needs." The University operates a major research and assistance program in East Africa, and sponsors joint student-faculty assistance projects in Latin American countries and oher parts of the worid. A high portion of Loma Linda graduates serve overseas, according to statistics. BIMMB IE CHOICE EASTERN BEEF COMPLETE DINNERS Broiled Filet Mignor Broiled Top Sirloin Stoak.. Broiled N.Y.

Dirksen man to watch on Civil Rights By Doris Fleeson The man to watch during Washington's bruising civil rights battle is not President Kennedy, the Attorney General, or the Negro leaders. The man to watch is effusive, ever-loving Everett McKinley Dirksen. Administration leaders do not have enough votes to enact civil rights legislation without substantial Republican support. This reality casts the Republican Senate leader in the role of Horatio at the bridge, the shield of Bartlett's quotations in one hand, the spear of politics in the other and a toga of sheer brass dishevelled about him. Dirksen's decisive role is shown by the fact that President Kennedy consulted with him three times in the last five days before Administration proposals reached Congress. The President even handed him a draft of the accompanying Presidential message lo consider over the final week end. The day before Kennedy crossed the Rubicon, Presidential counsel Theodar Sorensen, two other White House aides and Democratic Senate strategist Robert G. Baker were closeted with Dirksen making changes he suggested. He now says these changes are not enough. He is particularly cool toward the Administration's public accommodations proposal. But the Senator is justly famed for his flexibility and it wiU be interesting to watch what he becomes in the terrible crucible of the civil rights struggle. A political heir to William McKinley in more than his middle name, Dirksen has progressed at SELL IT TOMORROW least as far on domestic issues as With an inexpensive Classified Ad the late Sen.

EMPIRE lOWL «40 W. Cotton Ave, Phon* 793-2525 international issues he has risen on occassion to bipartisan statesmanship in the best tradition of Root, Stimson and Vanderberg. But, as was Abraham Lincoln, the senior Senator from Illinois is always a careful politician. Dirksen has given no indication that he is any more eager than was Lincoln originally to face up to the racial tragedy fully and irrevocably. His dilemma is easier than that faced by the Great Emancipator. Not only does his constitueno" now have hundreds of thousands of militant Negro voters but his problem, at most, is a divided party while Lincohi's was a divided nation. In a personal sense, Dirksen's choice is whether to be briefly and genially remembered than forever forgotten or to seize upon this centennial crisis to help finish what Lincoln started. In stark political terms, he must decide whether to go along with the Goldwater faction, which wants to turn the G.O.P. more white and more to the right, or to help resolve the civil rights que.<:- tion once and for all. The future of his party is at stake, but so is the question whether the nation must suffer a civil rights stalemate at just the moment when it appears that historic problem must and can be resolved. With a firm early stand Dirksen could take with him enough Republicans to be decisive. If the public accommodations part is not included, however, Negro demonstrations for their constitu tional rights will continue and the country will face worse danger than before. . Dirksen's role is a fascmatwg one but he should also be watched as a litmus test of the President's intentions. Because of their close consultations Dirksen must by now have a shrewd notion of where Kennedj' will make concessions and how hard the Adnunls- tration will fight. Since politicians of both parties are necessary to a civil rights solution, the critical act of statesmanship on both sides is how to assure equal credit for the White House and Congress as a whole. That is not an easy achievement in politics. Khrushchev in new blast at Red Chinese (Continued from Page 1) Communist giants. In a warning directed apparent ly as much at the Western pow ers as at the Chinese, Khrushchev told a Hungarian friendship meeting in the Kremlin palace: "If ail the nuclear weapons were exploded, they would contaminate the atmosphere and how would people live? This the question. "We did not need a revolution for war, we need no war." Khrushchev departed from his prepared text to make these remarks at the very moment the three-power Moscow nuclear test ban talks entered their fifth session, with optimism high for a parial nuclear test ban agreement between East and West. Most Direct Snub Western observers saw the speech as a major olive branch of peace toward the West and perhaps the the most direct Soviet snub to Communist China so far. Khrushchev was welcoming Hungarian Communist chief 3a nos Kadar to Moscow. Pointedly shaking his finger while delivering remarks obviously directed at China, the Soviet leader said the Socialists who could not convert words into deeds were nothing but "jabber- mouths." Khrushchev made his remarks —which diplomats believed could spark the final explosion splitting Moscow and Peking — a "digression" and returned to his prepared speech reviewing Hungarian history. But diplomats said the points he made in the digression would not be used by the Red Chinese delegation here for the ideological talks. Khrushchev said some persons believed "there must be revolution, there must be war and society would be built on corpses." "Do these fanatics know," Khrushchev asked, "that if all nuclear means were used, those who survived would perhaps envy the dead?" MRS.

Riverside for scheduling on FRP work The Riverside City Council this week gave added support to requests from San Bernardino county agencies and the San Gorgonio pass area that the East Branch aqueduct for Feather River water be constructed on the planned time schedule. The Council acted on a recommendation of its board of public utilities and. in effect, emphasized a support resolution passed last October. The original and continuing schedule by the state is to con struct the East Branch aqueduct to deliver water by 1972. Ony the Metropolitan Water district opposes this date, asking, instead, tiiat the East Branch be delayed to 1985. The San Diego City Council also has endorsed the planned East Branch time schedule. Yucaipa survey expected about end of July Yucaipa Valey residents are still not certam when the results of a professional community service survey will be released by Gold-Thompson and Company of South Pasadena. W. Dewey Herkelrath, chairman of the citizen's committee which ordered the study, reported that the firm's best estimate for making the report public is now the end of July. It was first thought the report would be ready by July 1. According to Herkeh-ath, the surveying fum ran into "personnel problems" which delayed completion of the report. Herkelrath said Gold-Thompson apparently have finished the research required to prepare specific recommendations. The business and local government consulting firm was hired to make a professional study of Yucaipa Valley's growth needs and determuie whether incorporation is feasible. Approximately $700 of the $4,500 cost of the study still has to be raised. Herkelrath was hopeful the remaining amount would be collected after the report is published. A limited number of printed copies will be sold to the pub- Lc. Griffith Co. low on Barstow freeway bid Griffith Company of Los Angeles with $4,731,915.25 was the low bidder for constructing about 17 miles of the Barstow Freeway, Interstate Highway 15 (U. S. Highway 91-466), between Field Road and Cronise Valley, according to C. V. Kane, District Engineer of the California Division of Highways in San Bernardino. This unit, the fifth to be constructed between Barstow and the Nevada State Line, will, like the other units, provide two twelve- foot driving lanes with a ten-foot shoulder on the outside for each direction of travel. The roadbeds will be separated by a dividing strip varying in width from 60 to 100 feet. Bridges with ramps for the interchange of traffic between the freeway and local roads will be constructed at Afton Road near Dunn, Afton, and Mount Afton, and at Basin Road in Cronise Valley. A roadside safety rest area for traffic in each direction «ill be located about four miles easterly of Field Road. During the year the contractor will have to complete this job, traffic will pass through the construction area with as little delay and inconvenience as possible. When this unit is completed, with a target date in the late summer or fall of 1964, there will be only 18 miles of two-lane highway between Los Angeles and the Nevada State Line, a distance of about 225 miles. A total of seven bids were received, with Kasler Corporation and Gordon H. Ball Enterprises of San Bernardino second with S5.021,109.90, while $5,148,942.50 by Vinell Corporation and Vinell Constructors of Alhambra was third. PIE IN SKY NEW YORK (UPI) — It will be some time before astronauts will have to cook their own meals ui outer space, but you may be having a problem in hi^-altitude baking at your mountain retreat this summer. The Gas Appliance Manufacurers Association, which makes a study of such things, has this advice on cooking in high places where the air pressure is usually lower than at sea level: In baking, GAMA suggests, use less baking powder and sugar and increase all liquid measurements to prevent cake and pie failures. Most package mixes incorporate necessary adjustments in their instructions.
