Sen. Hunt (D-Wyo) voiced confidence Wilson would innkc a bona fide sale, not just a transfer to his wife or another relative, mid said lie expects to vole for Wilson "unless something else crops up."

Sen. Morse (Ind-Ore) said he lias not changed Ills mind that the choice of Wilson is not n good one. He said GM has close fo five billion dollars worth ,of defense contracts and "it is not in tho Interests of good government" to have a former GM preslden have n former GM president Judging details of those contracts.

Lyndon H. Johnson <D-Tex>" who asked, the article snld: "Do you have any reluctance to" pass on General Motors contracts ns secretary of defense or would you disqualify yourself?" Tho article quoted Wilson as snying: "No. I will not, and I know very much about General Motors p.olloies. General motors Is not trying to make a lot of money out of the defense program or the war. "It rltd not do Hint In World War II and I had w goou bit to <!o with that policy."

(fl'j —The state's highest officials set out today to determine what, it any, action, to take against 325 rebel convicts who gave In meekly last night and freed six guards hostages, after holding out stubbornly in their barricaded cells at Rockview prison for 72 hours. The defiant prisoners—fewer than half the number that revolted on Monday, avowedly for better food and a more liberal parole policy- surrendered unconditionally in response to "get tough" 'orders of Gov. John S. Fine. The collapse of the insurrection was hastened by an ever tightening ring of heavily armed state police and the unnerving roar of National Guard fighter planes over Rockview. which Is a unit of Western state penitentiary. None of the captives had been harmed. But one was near the stage of exhaustion. The final verdict on any disciplinary course to be pursued rests with Gov. Fine. In his demand for a surrender without strings, the governor told the convicts any action taken against them ' because of the riot "will be In accordance with the due nnd orderly process of law." Elsenhower said during the cam palgn he was against repeal of the controversial Taft-Hartley Act but that he favored amending it. The White House announcement that Wilson, Elsenhower's choice for secretary of defense, had decided to dispose of his GM slock came at 7:25 o'clock last night— after newsmen had been alerted to expect an important development.
