Churchmen Gather For Merger Talks WASHINGTON (UPD-Leaders of four major denominations ga tlu'red here today for talks on the most extensive church merger that lui.s ever reached the stage of serious negotiation.

Spokesmen emphasized that no substantive decisions should be expected from the initial meeting, which will be concerned mainly with procedure' problems, including a schedule for future sessions. Significant Milestone Despite its preliminary nature, toilay's meeting was regarded bj churchmen as a significant milestone in the Christian unity movement. The four denominations involved are not only among the nation's largest. They also represent widely differing traditions. Supporters of the merger proposal acknowledge that many difficult problems must be solved, and that it will take years of patient negotiation to work out £ plan of union which lias any chance of acceptance. But they feel thai if this merger can be accomplished, it will be a major breakthrough toward reunion of the whole Christian family. Others to be Invited The participating groups have indicated that olher denominations will be invited to join the united church if the negotiations hear fruit.

Supreme Court Backs NLRB On Reinstaiemenl WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Supreme Court said today the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has been faking too critical a look al Vational Labor Relations Board orders reinstating discharged employers with back pay. The 5th Circuit, headquartered n New Orleans, developed a rule of its own for such cases. The rule provides that the em- foyer's statement under oath as o why the workers were fired must be believed unless there is substantial contradiction." Some years ago the Supreme Court ruled that a reviewing court may not change the board's decision in a borderline case without substanaial reasons for doing The high court said then that the findings of the board examiner are to be considered carefully because he is the one who has an opportunity to observe the demeanor of the witnesses. Today in a brief, unsigned opinion, the court said the 5th Circuil cannot use this test for mosl cases but must invoke a special test for reinstatement cases. The opinion reversed two recenl decisions of the 8th Circuit, thereby sending the cases back for reconsideration. The NLRB had ordered the em ployes reinstated with back pay. But the 5th Circuit, using the rule struck down today, refused to enforce the order. NATIONAL OBITUARIES i lly United I'ress International ROCHESTER, Minn.

(UPI) -- Like many painters Louise Hubyak cleans her brushes on a board. Recently, one masonife board, iabbed countless t i m e s with irushes to remove excess paint rom them, caught her fancy. "The colors were bright and tretty so I gave it a close scru- iny, turning it one way and then another until 1 saw a scene emerge," said Miss Hubyak. 'Then I improvised on it a bit and had a painting." She labeled the abstract work, 'blind flower girl," and entered it in a Miami art show with her other works. It was the first painting she sold and went for a "nice price," she said Monday. Encouraged, and perhaps with an eye toward similar remunerating projects, Miss Hubyak said her cleaning boards often produce "charming pieces of art."

By HARRY FERGUSON United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Kennedy has asked Congress For $4.9 billion dollars (o bolster ;he might and morale of eligible nations under the foreign aid program.

Republican 'Talkathon' To Rap Kennedy 'Failure' WASHINGTON ( U P I ) -- House Republicans t o d a y announced jlans for a night-long "talkathon" on the House fioor to take the \cnnedy administration to task "or its "failure." A 14-honr series of speeches scheduled for Wednesday was announced at a news conference by Reps. Craig Hosmer and James Utt, both R-Calif. It would start the end of regular House business and run deep into the following morning. Hosmer said the talks by about iO Republicans would be "intended fo cut away the snow job the administration has been piling on the American public through its blizzards of propaganda." He also said he hoped the Democratic leadership would not cut off the Kcpublican flow of words through parliamentary procedures. Among topics lo bo discussed Utt snid, would he the administration's alleged 'no-win policy" in dealing with Communist aggros- ;ion, as well as foreign aid, the United Nations, and medical care for the aged. Rep. John II. Pillion, R-N.Y., said he would talk about the "reckless, improvident and irresponsible" fiscal policies of the Kennedy administralion. Hep. Thomas M. I'elly, Il-Wash., who pinnod the name "lalknlhon" lo the officially enlilltd "Kcpubli- can '.spring thaw," said ho would explore possible resulls of the ex- liralion of the export control act icxt June M. not been planned by the GOP 'eadership. Rather, he said, it was a "grass roots" project emerging from the ranks of Republican members of the House.

He had freed the slaves, won the war a n d preserved the Union. Who knows what would have happened to him if he had been post-war reconstruction?

FINLEY CRESCENT CITY-Del Norte county Superior Court Judge.Sam- uel F. Finley announced yesterday that he will retire effective Sunday. The 62-year-old magistrate, a 21-year veteran of the Superior Court bench, said he and his wife Sarah plan to attend the opening of the World's Fair in Seattle and considered it an opportune time to step down. A successor will be named by Governor Brown. Finley, considered one of the top jurists in Northern California, was named to his post Aug. 6, 1941, by Gov. Culbert Olsen. Prior to that he was an attorney in Siskiyou county. During liis years of service on the bench, only three--one criminal and two civil--of his decisions were reversed by the Appellate Court. The judge said that, although he will be retired, the State Judicial Council may still call on him to substitute for judges in the state, f the need arises. Jydd To Quit Politics At End 0! Term MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (UPI- Rep. Walter Judd, R-Minn., 1960 Republican national convention Keynoter and campaign work- norse, Monday night announced his retirement from politics at the end of the current congressional term. Judd, who was elected to a 10th term in 1960, said "I feel there are things I can do more usefully in the remaining years of .my life." The one-time medical missionary to China, now one of the administration's sharpest critics anc a strong anti-Communist, said he had "several possibilities" for work but did not specify. Judd, a conservative but not an isolationist, has supported foreign aid programs under four presidents. He has been the Far East expert on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. His most con- istent criticism of Democrats has been in the foreign policy field particularly in relations to the Communist takeover in China. His keynote speech at the 1960 GOP convention in Chicago was devoted mainly to an attack on Democratic foreign policy. He made the retirement announcement at a 5th District Republican convention scarcely an hour after the delegates had endorsed him for reelection and started a wild band-playing demonstration, shouting "We want Judd." "Nothing is ever final," he told news conference before taking the floor. "But this is my intention at this time." U.S.A.

(Data iroia PoDuMioalMcrenco Bureau) Nice Thing About Hawaii * * * · * · · * * * * · Look At Scenery; Forget Liz, Eddie By ERSKINE JOHNSON Hollywood Corrscpondent KAUAI, Hawaii -- (NEA)-The news about Liz And Eddie got iere faster than Col. John Glenn, 'hey put Liz on the front page ven out here in the middle of the 'acific. The local paper head- ined it: "LIZ-EDDIE ALL PAD." "PAU," in the local lingo, means "done, finished." The luaus here leave you all iau, too. That's another story. But at least here, after reading ibout Liz, you can look at the [orgeous scenery and forget the vhole thing. Since I haven't had an outrigger canoe ride yet, I'll ;et my oar in right now. The pampering of Elizabeth Taylor as a child actress and then is a teen-age star by Hollywood ust possibly is the reason behind he Roman Spring of Mrs. Fisher leadlines. A long time ago I heard an MGM official say, "What Miss 'aylor wants, she gets." When he flicked those eyelashes, things lappened. The pampering was part of the MGM star system. Never before, r since, have so few in Holly- vood been pampered by so many. Sharing this Kiddieland, the likes jf w h i c h even Walt Disney :ouldn't imagine, were two other young stars, Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. The studio's golden rule for the :are and upbringing of Liz, Mickey and Judy, who brought mil- ions to the box office and to MGM stockholders, was simple md uncomplicated: Keep them happy at any cost. Vever deny them any request. If she had not .become a child ictress? If she had lived a normal childhood and perhaps mar- ied the boy nxet door? The question cannot be answered, of course. There is a clue, however, in the idult behavior patterns of Liz, ilickey and Judy. Since their 'graduation" from MGM, their ives have been strangely alike: multitude of marriages and di- ·orces, romantic blazes and leartbreaks, neuroticism and continued need for pampering. Charlton Heston is playing his iwn "father" you might say, in he film version of "Diamond Head," based on the novel about Hawaiian island land monarchy, t's quite a switch. In Peter Oilman's book, the fa- her of the baronial Rowland fam- dy was the protagonist who fomented disaster for his daughter. For the screen the eldest son played by H e s t o n ) becomes 'King" Howland, switching the story to a brother-sister conflict. When he purchased the book, jroducer Jerry Bresler thought ol casting Clark Gable in the father role. Gable's death, before Breser had tile chance to offer him the part, resulted in the change, giving the much younger Heston he starring role.
