(AP) - A band of farm workers striking for higher wages sets out today on a 400-mile march to the state : capital, accompanied by a Protestant minister and a Roman Catholic priest wearing a cowboy hat and the Star of David. The strikers want union recognition and a minimum wage $1.25-an-hour for Mexican- v American seasonal field hands who 'do stoop labor in the lower Rio Grande Valley. The marchers plan to hike 56 days through hot and sparsely peculated country. They hope to rally support for their cause in such cities as Corpus Christi and San Antonio — and in dozens of crossroads i towns with names like Skidmore, Pettus and Poth. ; A similar march was made Ithis year by vineyard workers in California's San Joaquin Valley. -The grape pickers there won contracts with some pro- ducers. The Texas group has affiliated with the California union, the National Farm Workers Association. The march is to end Labor Day in Austin, where Texas APL-CIO officials say 50,000 to 100,000 persons will converge for a rally on the capitol grounds. Gov. John B. Connally will be asked to hear personally the workers' request that a special session of the legislature be convened to pass a state minimum wage law that would cover farm laborers. . The movement began as a strike June 1 at Rio Grande !ity, Tex., a quaint town with a Mexican flavor near the banks of the Rio Grande River. Rio !rande City is in Starr County, which the i960 U.S. census says las the lowest per capita income in the state.

Daily Record Weather V. S. Weather Bnrean Agricultural service Keitet, Ark. Swell e r i n g temperatures plagued the state yesterday. Out of 29 reporting stations the mercury failed to reach the 100-degree mark at only five points. Calico Rock had the dubious distinction of being the hot spot with a sizzling 106 degrees. A few isolated shower buildups were observed over the state but the only station reporting any moisture was El Dorado with only a trace. Nighttime temperature remained warm last night with most readings remaining well up into the 70-degree bracket. Gilbert managed to cool off to 67 this morning for the coldest temperature reported. There are no fronts or other disturbances indicated on our weather chart which appear likely to change the current weather picture. So, hot temperatures and generally dry conditions will continue to prevail. Experiment station personnel at Reiser report that hot temperatures are aiding cotton growth and that generally cultivation, weed control and insect control activities are well on schedule. Soil moisture is in better shape at Reiser than at any place where precipitation has been absent for many days. The five-day outlook, 6 a.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Sunday, calls for temperatures to average two to eight degrees above normal with minor day-to-day changes. Normal highs 90 to 95. Normal lows 68 to 72. Little or no rainfall except in a few isolated thundershowers mostly near the end of the week averaging .1 of an inch.

Wages remain the major issue. The union it.'seeking increases of about 53 cents an hour over three years. The airlines have offered a three-year contract with a 30-cent raise. A presidential emergency board recommended increases of 44 to 48 cents an hour. Top- rated mechanics how receive $3,52 an hour with pay ranging down to 12.25 for janitors. Other unsettled national issues include vacations, holidays, health and welfare plans, pensions, overtime and hours. The strike against the five airlines — Eastern, National, Northwest, Trans World and United — has paralyzed much of the nation's air commerce. Normally, the five carriers handle 60 per cent of the domestic industry's business. Nonstruck airlines added extra flights after the Civil Aeronautics Board authorized emergency steps to meet the gap caused by the walkout. But the union moved to block the struck carriers from leasing planes to operating lines. Union Vice President Joseph W, Ramsey said union members would not service the rented craft. The APL-CIO Transport Workers Union, which represents mechanics on other airlines as well as.other workers on the struck lines, said it was cooperating with the machin- sts. Meanwhile, members of the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks, who do office work and sell tickets, 'went on strike against Northwest Airlines because, the union president said, the com pany had tried to get them to assume some of the duties ol machinist union members. Northwest said it has not required members Of the clerks inibn "to do anything behind heir normal duties."
