RAIL EMBARGO HALT FREIGHT larriers Turn Down ien. Mansfield Plea 'o Let Congress Act · WASHINGTON (UPI)-- Senate Democratic .Leader /like Mansfield was rebuffed by the railroads today ffort to get a further extension of the rail strike deadline ^et for 12:01 a.m. local time Thursday. With time running out in a drive to pass legislation deigned to head off the nationwide walkout, the Montana ^enator appealed to both sides to keep the trains running antil Congress can act. He said it was their clear responsibility to do so. J. E. Wolfe, chairman of management's National Railway ^abor Conference, promptly rejected the appeal. Wolfe said a previous extension of the deadline was a aistake because the unions used the grace period to "improve their otherwise intolerable public relations position." Despite the rejection of Mansfield's proposal, there still as some hope Congress would beat the deadline. The Jouse arranged to debate its somewhat different version *££ of the bill and then pass the Senate version when the cferk R M other chamber does complete action.
