DAILY TRIBUNE THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1,1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK MARITIME STRIKE IDLES 60,000 President Seeks • 1 Taft-Hartley Act * Against Walkout Heavy Guard Against China By PHIL NEWSOM UP I Foreign News Analyst Time was when Chinese river boats could put into the Soviet Siberian port of Khabarovsk at the confluence of the Amur and Ussuri rivers with cement, rugs and rice. That time is no more. Heavily armed Soviet jjatrols, aided by dogs and an alarm system, guard the Soviet side. Airfields for both let fighters and bombers, anti-tank guns and tanks contribute further to the air of military preparedness. No rail, road or air links exist between Red Chinese Manchuria on the one side of the two rivers' and Soviet Siberia on the other. Some 2,500 miles to the west and south alon? the long Sino- Sovief border lie'the Soviet republic of Kazakhstan and Red China's province of Sinkiang. Quit Cooperating . Sinkiang is rich in oil and minerals and formerly Red China and the Soviets cooperated in its development. No more. The Red Chinese closed the Russians out there in 1954. Today the area is the center ; of charges and counter-charges and of frequent border clashes, with both sides maintaining strong military forces across from each other. The Russians could. regard with regret but with calm the Red Chinese action in slicing off a part of Kashmir and the northeast territories from India. But it is with considerably less than calm that they regard Red Chinese claims against more than 500,000 miles of Soviet territory in Siberia and Central Asia. As the dispute between the two, which began as an ideological quarrel, progresses to raw nationalism, it becomes of special interest to others outside the main arena, t For as Alao Tze-tung pressed his claims on lands he says-j were seized unjustly fom -China, he issued a reminder of other examples of Soviet expansionism. Said Mao: Taking Chunks "They have appropriated part of Romania. Detaching part of East Germany, they drove out the local inhabitants to the western area. Detaching part of Poland, they included it in Russia and as compensation gave Poland part of East Germany. . The same thing happened to Finland. They de. tached everything that could be detached...". Proving that the Chinese had touched a sensitive nerve, the Russian reply came quickly.!,^™— ££^£3 Said the Communist party news- 1 paper Pravda: "Mao Tze-tung's , pronounce- Johnson Asks Expansion Of Foreign Trade By GARY P. GATES United Press International NEW 'YORK (UPI) — An anti-automation strike by 60,000 longshoremen today paralyzed the multi-billion dollar maritime industry in ports from Maine to Texas. The dockers ivmped the gun on last midnight's .strike deadline; but President Johnson" already had begun preparations to obtain a Taft-Hartley Act injunction that would suspend the walkout for 80 days. Activity in ports along the more than 2,400 miles of Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coastline began slowing to a trickle almost immediately after the strike began. By morning activity was confined mostly to picketing. Nearly all cargo operations were at a standstill but some passenger operations into and out of New York were still being maintained, at least for the present. A few ships, including, three luxury liners, sailed on pre-dawn high tides today and two other lines are scheduled to leave later. Some cargo liners also were expected to arrive in other ports during the day but were not expected to be unloaded. When down to the wire negotiations between the International Longshoremen's Association (ILA) and shippers failed Wednesday, President Johns o n swiftly created a board of inquiry to determine whether the nation's economic health would be endangered. Certification of this to the President would empower the Justiee Department to seek a court-ordered 80-day "cooling off period." The board scheduled a morning fact-finding session with Thomas Gleason, president of the ILA, and Alexander Chopin, head of the New York Shipping Association, amid speculation the government would act with usual speed to obtain the injunction — perhaps today. The strike was likely to tie up as many as 500 ships. About 165 were berthed in the port of New York which stands to lose an estimated 1.2 million a day as long as the strike persists. The National Maritime Union (Continued on page 8) ments on the territorial question patently show how far the Chinese leaders have gone in the 'cold war' against the Soviet Union.. .we are faced with an openly expansionist program with far-reaching pretensions." Moscow dispatches have left little doubt that there will be a formal break between the two huge Communist nations. The question remaining is how and when it will come. Three Months For $700,000 HAMMOND, Ind. (UPI)Glenn Garrott, 44, former cashier of the Farmers State Bank of Brookston, was sentenced to three months in jail and placed on probation for two years on his plea of guilty in a $700,000 embezzlement at the bank. Federal Judge Jesse E. Eschbach ordered Garrott to the Tippecanoe County Ja.- at Lafayette and suspended the remaining 21 months of a two- year prison term after noting that Garrott made restitution of about $439,000' of the money and kad an otherwise good record as a family man' and community leader. Garrott pleaded guilty.a year ago to eight counts of an indictment-charging he issued cashiers' checks to two Chicago area contractors who had no funds in the bank to cover the amounts. His sentence was delayed while he testified as a government witness at the trial of one contractor, Ernest W. Mullins, Jr., 38, Northbrook, TJ1. Mullins was convicted in Federal Court at Fort Wayne July 22 on four counts of aiding and abetting Garrott in embezzlement.

It was an unhappy day for Mrs. Rockefeller who had sought to reverse a pre-divorce agreement which gave her virologist ex-husband custody of the children, reserving only visitation rights for herself. The ,nrw ruling by Justice Joseph A. Gagliardi retained the visitation rights and gave Mrs. Rockefeller generous vacation rights with the children.

The Texas Department of Public Safety announced a standby alert for the Texas coast, but the weather bureau said the storm was expected to veer to the east before reaching Texas and center its fury on Louisiana. Gaining Stngth Hilda, spawned in the warm, hurricane-breeding grounds of the Carribean, brushed the Cuban Isle of Pines and slipped through the Yucatan 1 Channel into the open Gulf Wednesday. Sucking up. more strength by the hour from the Gulf waters, it swiftly grew from a tropical storm to a hurricane. The U.S. Weather Bureau in New Orleans placed the storm 370 miles south of New Orleans at 4 a\m. CST, at latitude 24.5 and Igngitude 90.3. It was moving toward the nothwest at a sluggish 6 miles-an-hour, compared to a 14 mile-an-hour rate when it was a tropical storm Tuesday night. Squalls extended 140 miles to the north and east. , 1 Forecasters said they expected the storm to grow in size and intensity and to take a more northerly course "within the' next few hours.'' They cautioned that "hurricane warnings will probably be hoisted later, today over portions of the area under the hurricane watch. Warning Explanation A "warning" means winds of hurricane force or high tides both are expected in the area of display in 24 hours or less.

BOSTON (UPI) — Five firemen .were killed and 12 persons were hospitalized early today when the top two floors of a flaming four-story building collapsed, burying them under bricks and fiery rubble.

A section of the walls of the top two floors crumbled, hurling chunks of bricks and flaming pieces of wood on the firemen. Their ladders crumbled. The men fell to the ground and were buried under the debris. Other. firemen risked their lives as they ran into the rubble and began digging desperately in an attempt to rescue their fellow workers. Ten . minutes later another weakened section of the wall tore loose,- burying other .firemen. An alarm was issued for "all available ambulances." One ladder truck was partially buried by the debris.

EATON United Press International BALTIMORE (UPI) — President Johnson today urged America's NATO allies to help build bridges to nations behind the Iron Curtain by means of trade, ideas, visitors and humanitarian aid. The Chief Executive said development of closer relations between the West and Eastern Europe should be part of .an expanded role for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). . I.
