V General Motors Strike May End By Mid-Week DETROIT (UPI)—The 240- member General Motors National- Council of the United Auto Workers Was scheduled to meet today to • decide whether to recommend ratification of the national contract reached with the auto firm. Favorable action could result in a speedy end to the 29-day- old GM strike and a return to limited production by the giant auto firm by the middle of next week.- The UAW and GM reached a national contract agreement Oct. 5, but a nationwide strike was called because local settlements had not been reached at the company's 130 plants across the country. Settlements of local issues have dragged out ever since, and up to Thursday night, 97 of the 130 local bargaining units had reached agreements, representing more than two thirds of the union's 360,000 GM workers., The UAW also ordered all GM locals throughout the country, to hold meetings Sunday to vote on acceptance or rejection of the national contract. Then, if a majority of the locals approved the national contract, the strike would end for all locals that had their local settlements wrapped up. >For the rest, UAW Vice President Leonard Woodcock said it was conceivable they could vote to go back to work "if they feel the unsettled issues are not worth a strike." Woodcock said the union's decision to hold a GM National Council meeting today, and call the union locals into. Sunday meetings was due in part at least to President Johnson's action Wednesday, in expressing concern about the. prolonged GM strike.

Hope To Raide $220,000Yearly To Pay Off Bonds He's got sret bat By United Press International Never before have so' many top ticket candidates of opposing parties appeared on the same platform" together so many times in an Indiana election camnaign. They did it again ioday when Lt. Gov. Richard O. Ristine, Republican; and Roger D. Branigin, Democrat, nominees for governor, appeared at a luncheon of the Indiana Broadcasters Association in Indianapolis. At another IBA session Thursday, Sen. Vance Hartke, Democrat, and State Sen. D. Russell Bontrager, Republican, seeking Hartke's seat, also appeared on the same platform. Branigin said in a statement issued today that if he is elected he will recommend elimination of the household goods and poll taxes. Branigin called the household goods tax "a nuisance" • that costs Hoosiers $16 million a year, and the poll tax "a selective nuisance tax"'costing $2.2 million a year. 15 State Taxes Cited He "said Indiana levies 15 state taxes on'every citizen and onlv. 18 states lew more than Indiana. He blamed Ristine and said "this is part of the tax mess into which my opponent, has led us." Hartke said in his Morgan and Vigo County forays for votes that the Republicans "had a chance to build this country and we ended up in the middle of a recession." "I do not claim to know the full intentions of our oppbsition but I do not thik they know either," he said. "I think the people' are smart enough to know the differenc e '"tetween prosress and recession." Ristine said in remarks prepared for delivery to the IBA meeting that the current campaign "may prove if voters are more influenced by advertising than by issues." He complimented the broadcasters for "fair and responsible coverage of the campaign." But he said "a few of the advertising people haven't been so constructive." "Barrage of Rhymes" ' "They liave produced a barrage- of rhyming commercials and an assortment of radio ads that can only be described as lies. It now seems that .'the present campaign may prove if voters are more influenced by (Continued on page 6) Admitted Sex Deviate Gets FBI Clearance . WASHINGTON (UPI—An--extensive ' FBI investigation of Walter W. Jenkins has turned up no information that the former presidential aide had ever violated security or been blackmailed because of his arrests on morals - charges. But FBI . Director J. Edgar Hoover's report to President Johnson said that Jenkins, a 46- year-old father of-six, admitted I "having engaged in the inde- I cent acts for which he was arrested" on Jan. 15, 1959, and again last Oct. 7.. | Jenkins, a top Johnson aide jfor 25 years, resigned his White | House post Oct. 14 after- disclosure that he, had been arrested on a morals charge the previous week.. The President ordered an immediate FBI investigation of Jenkins and the circumstances surrounding his arrest to see if there had been any security violations. Under Strain In an eight-page statement Thursday night, Hoover- said that many of those interviewed during the .investigation — and Jenkins himself — said the two incidents for which he was arrested occurred during periods of "extremely intense emotional, strain and physical exhaustion." -' . ' ' Jenkins also told the FBI that he had been "enticed" by the arresting officer in the 1959 incident.' On both occasions Jenkins was arrested in the basement men's room of the Washington YMCA. The room,, described by city police as a gathering place for sex deviates, has since been closed. Jenkins now is undergoing treatment in a Washington hospital for "extreme fatigue" and high blood pressure. The FBI interviewed him at the hospital and also talked with more than 500 other persons, tracing his background from boyhood to the. present. The FBI said that Jenkins could recall no other such acts other than those for which he was arrested. Extreme Fatigue "It was his belief that these two - experiences had occurred after extreme fatigue and imbibing in alcohol; and extensive interviews of Mr. Jenkins' coworkers and doctors at the White House revealed that he was suffering from gross fatigue and overwork," the FBI said, ' The FBI disclosed that Jenkins "has had limited association with some individuals who are alleged to be, or who admittedly are,. sex deviates.'
