When Chavez pledged the Delano strike would continue "until the growers cave in" to demands that they recognize the right of collective bargaining, Williams said: "I agree with you com- pltely." Earlier, H a r r y Bridges, president of the International Longshoremen's - and Warehousemen's Union, told the committee he would favor the move of agriculture out of California and /into 'Mexico, saying "If they'can't pay decent wages, they ought to get out." Allan Grant, /president, of the California Farm Bureau Federation, said his 60,000 member organization opposes the minimum \yage,believing it would cut worker incentive : by' : undermining pie_ce rate wages! .- . . . .··· ye. warned' that collective bargaining "could mean the strangulation of our food sup ply by a relatively few persons," and said it would put the -farmer in an unequal bargaining position .because of the', perishable quality of his product.'

I remember when you nd other movie stars foughl or farm workers. I'd like to ee you join the beef." When Bridges went on to upport calls for a genera rike, Murphy replied that he avored "a more enlightened ay. ! ' Bridges challenged conten- ons th : at California farm /orkers were the highest paid n the nation and said: "The difficulty (in Califor- ia) is nobody comes up with ie muscle to convince Di- Giorgio (a large farm corpora- on in the Delano area and Isewhere) and other growers hat they have to behave like mployers in o t h e r indus- ries." William L. Kircher, organ- zing director for the AFL- CIO, and Thomas Pitts, secre- ary-treasurer of the Califor- ia Labor Federation, AFL CIO, both : denied farm-work- r unions would have an un- air advantage because of the easonal nature of agriculture. "The workers'have a stake n bringing in the crops, just ike the growers," said Pitts. T h e s e things all can be vorked out. once collective argaining is started." Ctmbhrt Win Strvlco The House got its new chaplain Monday, a Methodist minister, The JJcv. Edward Gardiner Latch, D.D. who has been pastor of several churches in the Washington area over the years. 'House Speaker John W. McCormack, D-Mass., announced Dr. Latch's appointment as acting chaplain to succeed the late Dr. Bernard Braskamp, ' who died several weeks ago. Dr. Latch is expected to be elected formally to the 515,000-year post when the House organizes for its next session in January. He is now pastor of the M e t r o p o l i t a n Memorial Methodist Church in Washington. Before that he was pastor'of the Chevy Chase Methodist suburban Maryland and served in several Virginia area churches! Last fall, Dr. Latch became involved in a brief controversy when he refused to accept a Negro, Dorothy Horton, as a substitute soprano soloist at his 'church. Mrs. Horton had been selected by the regular soloist, Lynne Anders, who planned to be absent for a few weeks. Critics of his action said Dr. I.atch barred Mrs. Horton because of race. It resulted in choir director James R. Norris resigning and Dr. Latch was criticized by other clergymen, including Methodist Bishop John Wesley Lord. Dr. Latch denied that race was involved and said it was all a misunderstanding. On a following Sunday, Mrs. Horton sang with the choir, the choir director returned and the furor subsided. -AP Wtrnrtwlo by Cabb from LindM CANDIDATE Elisa Sheriff, 29, operator of a. cosmetics shop in London's Mayfair District, is seeking a seat in the House : of Commons as an Independent Liberal candidate against Labor's Michael Stewart, the British foreign secretary. STILL TICKETED Los Angeles motorcycle patrolman Floyd Klindt was writing out a ticket for following too closely Monday on the Harbor Freeway when he heard a crash behind him. He whirled around and saw an overturned automobile burst into flames. · Klindt rushed'to the car, found the doors stuck, then tried to kick out a window. He failed. Inside, Bernadine Bealty, 44, was -writhing in pain from severe burns. Just then the driver of. the car Klindt had stopped ran up and began smashing out a window with a heavy bumper jack. Together Klindt and Pelez Manchola, 41, pulled Miss Beatty through the window. As they carried her to safety, her. car exploded. Klindt later finished Svrit- ing out his ticket for Manchola. "But I think I'll go to court with him," Klindt s a i d , " a n d recommend clemency." HIGH S1TDOWN F o u r building workers staged a sitdown s t r i k e M, o n d a y night 250 feet above London's financial district. They refused to come down . from a huge crane, and fellow workers sent up food and blankets. The 'men were protesting against management plans to cut back the work force and cut bonus payments. Other workers also downed tools when 56 men were dismissed. M a n a g e m e n t charged that the labor force on the job had become unbalanced a n d production was suffering. The four men were identified by their mates only as Pat, Jim, Joe .and "Doorstep." They refused to give last names because they said the . building industry operates a blacklist. Their spokesmen on the ground : said they planned to stay up as long as they · could stand it.
