HAROLD J .' BURTON - A2tJ'H.IVS3 • ASSISTANT INDIANA STAT£ LIBRA IHDlAfJAPOLIS, INDIANA ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER 4, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTIN, INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 63 TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY —35 CENTS PER WEEK NATO LEARNS U.S. NUCLEAR POWER 40 Per Cent Of By EUGENE J7CAD0U'" United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI — Kore than three-fourths of Indiana's Republican mayors rame here today to establish tneir own organization. .--There are 61.GOP and only ''50 Democratic -city hall bosses in the state. "''Hence, the- importance politically of the GOP mayors following the crush of Republican power in nearly all governmental offices in the November election. There appears to be a. degree of coldness between the mayors and Robert N. Stewart, state chairman, and the GOP state committee, which met in here Tuesday. Speakers at the mayors' gath ering were former Gov. Harold W. Handley; State Sen. Allan E. Bloom, Fort Wayne, who will be GOP floor leader in the 1S66 Senate; 'Fort'Wayne Mayor Harold Zeis, former superintendent of the State Police, and H. Dale Brown, Indianapolis lllh District and Marion County chairman.. Brown, a former state chairman, has been a constant critic of Stewart, his successor. "Stewart does a lousy job," Brown said Tuesday. "At pres- - ent or sometime in the very near future, there will be sufficient votes to make a. change, if we can find a candidate." The meeting of the mayors was called without sanction of chairman Stewart by Greenfield Mayor Berry S. Hurley, who said: "We feel as mayors' we should be consulted a little bit about platforms and other things in the state organization, since we've got to run on them in 1967." .. Today's agenda included a wide-open discussion of party affairs, in contrast to a closed meeting of the state committee Tuesday; .adoption of a^constitution and bylaws, and election of officers. Among the mayors who have been mentioned for future political advancement are Hurley, Zeis; Lloyd M. Allen, South Bend; Will H. Hays, Jr., Crawfordsville; Edward L. Cordell, Richmond, and James D. Gardner, Martinsville. No Republican mayor in recent history has been promoted to higher office, but Democratic Sen. Vance Hartke is -a former mayor of Evansville. FORT WAYNE, Ind. (UPI)— A Save the Dunes Council spokesman said today the proposed Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore has "far more friends in Congress" than the proposed Lake Michigan port at Burns Ditch. Thomas E. Dustin said in a prepared statement that Congress will not agree to construction of a steel company harbor "until the term's of the Administration compromise are He also said a recent poll, conducted by United Press In- j ternational among members of ' the 1965 Legislature was a "disclosure of major importance." The poll indicated that 41 lawmakers favor use of state funds for port breakwater construction at Burns Ditch. He said the UPI poll was especially important because "it showed that even after a multi-million dollar propaganda blitz by Bethlehem Steel Co. for its 'Burns Harbor' plant, 15 state legislators are still against building a free harbor, for them with money from Indiana taxpayers." Dustin added that "the glaring blank spaces in the UPI survey, left by 19 more legislators (who replied) promises even more protection and good news for state taxpayers." "The apparent fact that fully half the entire Indiana General Assembly did not respond at all means that state funds for Bethlehem's port, are even more doubtful' now than they were two years ago.. ."• Dustin interpreted the UPI poll as "a clear indication that Indiana legislators seem unwill- (Continue* en page t) Stolen Car From Elwood Found Here Acting on a call from a rail road locomotive engineer, the Tipton County Sheriff's Department, Indiana State Police detectives" arid' El-wood Police recovered a vehicle stolen Monday night from George E.

They said they were prepared to make "any sacrifice" to bring "Huong down. The hunger strike started on schedule.-, at, the National Buddhist Center, a focal center for anti-government unrest.

Negotiators On Steel Contract Are Optimistic By EDWARD C. SIELSKI . United Press International PITTSBURGH (UPI).— Barg liners for the "big 11" steel firms and the United Steelworkers union (USW) resume contract .negotiations tod^y in atmosphere of cautious optimism. J. Warren Shaver, chairman of U.S. Steel Corp.'s- bargaining team and his union counterpart, James"Griffin, director of USW District 26 in Youhgstown, Ohio, expressed guarded hope talks would continue to proceed on an amiable level after their opening two hour sassion Tuesday. . "The meeting went fine," Shaver- said, adding he was "hopeful" a contract agreement could be reached. Griffin said the union "got in a good opening statement which was supplemented by several union representatives." Sees Agreement Joseph Molony, Buffalo, District 4 director who met with Bethlehem Steel Co. negotiators, said he thought "an agreement will be reached." "I don't like to think in terms of-a strike deadline," he said. "Our talks were friendly." When the U.S. S'.eel talks opened one of the bargainers said he hoped "the spirit of Christmas" would prevail at the bargaining table. But the spirit of good will which marked the end of the separate talks contrasted with an air of frigidity earlier in ths day. Both sides struck verbal blows only' a few hours before the contract talks opened. Seeking Unfair Share Industry, led off when R. Conrad Cooper, chief bargainer for the "big 11," issued an industry position • statement asking the union rta.pare its demands-. Industry accused the union of seeking an "unfair share" of industry profits and argued that steel has declined in the last decade. USW President David J. McDonald- said the industry was guilty of bad arithmetic. "For. the present," McDonald said, "it. is sufficient for the union to say that almost all of the figures in the companies' statement are incorrect and that those; that are mathematically corrcet are used erroneously." Those familiar w,ith steel negotiations said the union's demands" are the most costly ever made on the industry. Sources close to the USW said the union is shooting for wage' gains totaling about 43 cent's' an hour. The sessions are expected to adjourn Friday for the holidays and resume Jan. :5.'
