But the action failed to disrupt waterfront operations that were resumed Thursday under a court order. The order was issued under the Taft Hartley Act providing an 80-day cooling off perioc in the maritime strike that began March 16. A spokesman for the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union had said Thursday that union members would honor the picket lines set up by the-Negro American Labor Council. But longshoremen crossed the line at the Matson Navigation Co. Pier 32 this morning. The Negro group said it would picket four San Francisco docks, including Pier 50, where six American President Lines ships were berthed. One APL official, apprised of the situation, could only exclaim, "Good Lord, what have- we done lo deserve this!" -~ But the only pickets that showed up this morning were at Pier 32. The Negro goup, together, with local chapters of the Congress of Racial Equality and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, have, accused the Sailors Union -of the Pacific and the Marine Firemen's Union with discriminating against Negroes in their membership rules. The two unions, in addition 'to the Marine Cooks and Stewards, only Thursday went back to work after the U. S. District Court here granted a temporary restraining order in the 27-day-old West Coast maritime strike. Judge George B. Harris said in issuing the order under the Taft- Hartley Act that he agreed with · It I I f *t* World Critic Sobbing Liz Storm By DANIEL F. GILMORE United Press International ROME (UPD-- A sobbing Elizabeth Taylor, under fire from the Vatican City weekly for her "erotic vagrancy" .and hounded by Rome's photographers, stormed out of a nightclub early today and left without British actor Richard Burton. For the first time, Miss Taylor seemed to feel the sting of adverse publicity in the collapse of her fourth marriage and her offstage conduct in Rome with Burton, her co-star and almost constant companion. A few hours after the Vatican City weekly Osservatore Delia Domenica hit the streets Thursday with a scathing article attacking her behavior, the beautiful actress went out on the town with the 36-year-old former Welsh coal miner and two other friends Laughter, Then Tears The evening started off happily as they dined at the Grand Hotel and then hit the nightclub trail. Miss Taylor twisted with Burton, and danced with comedian Mike Nichols and an unidentified man --the fourth member of the party. Miss Taylor, stunning in a jet black cocktail dress with an intriguing neckline and 'diamond earrings, easily wcaved into the mood of the twisting dancers and went ajmost unnoticed in the dark- encd chamber. The actress twisted so energetically on the dance floor, the left shoulder strap of her gown snapped. A passing male dancer scriminatic President Kennedy's declaration that the strike . endangered , the national .health and safety. The court 'action sent !some 5,500 striking seaman back to work and 'activity along W e s t Coast waterfronts was 1 gathering full steam today. Crews were firing up boilers on some of the 60 vessels idled by the strike, longshoremen were loading cargo and seamen were reporting to hiring halls to sign on for voyages. But the 60-day cooling-off period did not guarantee settlement of the maritime dispute. J.

The party drank cocktails and iced champagne. But Miss Taylor's gay mood suddenly disintegrated into sobs and she tried to leave the nightclub. She was met , : on the outside by a horde of paparazzi, ' Rome's free-lance photographers. Miss Taylor 1 scrambled from one caar to another and finally was driven off, sobbing into a big white handkerchief offered to her by Nichols. Burton moved on alone to another nightclub, the "Little Bar," and joined a table of bearded and exotic-looking friends. Photogs Chase Liz Miss Taylor, pursued by carloads of photographers and one stubborn paparazzo on a motor scooter, zig-zagged through the ancient city's streets, but she failed to shake them off. Finally, the actress gave up and' returned to her villa. Burton, who plays Mare Antony in the film that stars Miss Taylor as "Cleopatra," remained at the "Little Bar" until 2:30 a.m. (local time) and then quietly left --alone. The Vatican City weekly, in a blistering letter addressed to "Dear Madam", but leaving no doubt that it was meant for Miss Taylor, said she was not fit to be the mother of her own three children nnd an adopted flaxen- haired German girl of 14 months. n By Two Maritime Association, which rep resents the 12 shipping lines af fected by the now suspendec walkout; and Morris Weisberger chief union negotiator, have both voiced opposition to the Taft Hartley injunction. , In addition, St. Sure; has point ed out that the injunction periot will end at the peak of the sum mer tourist season and at the height of the pineapple and fruit harvest times in Hawaii.

(UPI) - The lank repossessed Ed Skinner's car but the 42-year-old Oakland, Calif., man did not take it lying down. Skinner walked into the Orinda jranch of the Central Valley Bank and made the final payment. .

Then ' Skinner opened a card- ward box, took out n banana cream pic and smashed it into State's face. Unions would not resume at the end o the 80-day period. No such assurance has been given by either side. US, Britain Repeal Stand On Red Plan GENEVA (UPli-- The United States and Britain repeated today .hey are unwilling to join Russia in a new unpoliced nuclear test moratorium, but the Soviet Union claimed the majority of the work !s on its side. "All the powers here but you two," Russia's Valerian Zorin taunted the Americans and British at the 17-nation disarmament conference, "are for a moratorium." Italy promptly said Russia was deliberately misinterpreting its statements. But NATO member Canada sat silent under Zorin!s. prodding. Khrushchev Replies The exchange '. came as it was revealed in London that Soviet Premier LJfikita.. Khrushchev has sent a reply lo Prime minister Harold Macmillan's personal appeal Tuesday for a supervised nuclear weapons test ban. American Ambassador Arthur H. Jean opened today's session of the conference by reading into the record Thursday's State Department declaration that the United States "is not going to place its security at the mercy of an on- again off-again Soviet pledge." The statement said Zorin's proposal must be judged in the light of past Soviet actions -- when the Soviets agreed to a moratorium on testing for the duration of a conference to write a treaty pro- libiling testing, but nevertheless resumed testing while the talks still were in progress. Blow to Conferees Zorin said the American reply must have caused "a deep sense of disappointment" to all conferees and was "a heavy blow at the conference and cannot serve to strengthen peace." The Russians also claimed the iroposal lor a new moratorium actually had been made by India and the other seven neutrals here, but that the United States "did not find the courage to reply directly to those who made the pro- wsal."

Bridge Site Approved By State Officials The site selected for future construction of a new bridge over Eel River at Alderpoint has been approved by state officials, according to Charles Shaller, director of public works.

Jacobs that he still wants to question Jacobs in Texas. "We are not content with just his resignation," Wilson said. "In my opinion, he is guilty, but if he is- not, we renew our offer-to him to come to Dallas and testify in detail about the entire transaction. "We want him to testify to all bis relationships with Billie ; Sol Estes, especially as lo how Billie Sol Estes managed to secure the storage of Commodity Credit Corp. grain." Jacobs returned to Washington Thursday night from anagricul- tural conference at Denver. He conferred for two hours with Horace Godfrey, administrator of the ASC and submitted his resignation.
