WAUGH AP Education Writer SAN FRANCISCO W -- Delegates to the American Federation of Teachers convention have defeated 634 to 208 a proposal to demand immediate release of Angela Davis and instead asked for reasonable bail and a fair trial for the black educator. In a tense session last night that included two minor scuffles at the union's 55th annual convention, . Albert Shanker, leader of New York City teachers, led the fight against the proposed demand and call for a demonstration at the Marin County jail where Miss Davis is held. She is charged with kidnap- ing, murder and conspiracy in the Marin Courthouse shootout last year in which a judge and three others were slain. "It was the Al Shankers of Germany who built the Wehr- macht," Samuel Farber of UCLA's AFT local shouted after an impassioned plea to support slrong action. Miss Davis is a former UCLA philosophy instructor. Shanker told the 1,000 delegates that proponents of the motion were "asking not jus- tice but favoritism." and then said to Farber, "If you justify murder on a political basis that is what will bring Germany here in the United States." Earlier ttie 22-member AFT executive c o u n c i l adopted unanimously a statement critical of P r e s i d e n t Nixon's wage-price freeze. Head of Church Auxiliary Named PHILADELPHIA «P! -- Mrs. Dorothy K. Van Loo, of Menasha, Wis., was elected president yesterday of the Lutheran Church Women, the 260,000-member auxiliary of the Lutheran Church of America. Mrs. Van Loo, 57, is a member of the church's executive council, its chief poli'cy-mak- ing body. She succeeds Mrs. Bernard Spong of New York City. The election took place at the group's triennial convention in Philadelphia. Mrs. Van Loo defeated Mrs. Albert R. Fischer, of Baltimore, Md., for the three-year term as president. The three-page statement described the presidential order as "blatently discriminatory" because it exempted profits, dividends and interest rates. The council also criticized the President because he had "empowered employers" with enforcing the wage freeze but will "rely on totally inadequate machinery for enforcement on the price front." David Selden, AFT president, told a press conference that locals of the 250,000-member union are urged to continue negotiations over wages and working conditions and added that it is 'Inconceivable that we could call a halt to our negotiations in big cities where some negotiations are coming to a climax." Selden indicated that the council would not make any moves on its own until the AFL-CIO leaders decide on a course of action. The council statement urged locals to continue negotiations for improvements in wages and teaching conditions and demand implementation of built in increases for longevity and upgrading of jobs for advanced degrees.
