Service The AFL Air Line Pilots Assn. called the strike to enforce its demand that pilots on American's transcontinental flights shall not be required to fly more than eight hour* continuous flying time in one day. The airline, in newspaper advertisements, called it a "strike *gainst better airline service." But Clarence L. Saver, president of the pilots' union, said it was a battte "for preservation of safety regulations and the public inter- *st." The dispute came to a head sev- «ral months ago when American started a coast-to-coast nonstop service. The company scheduled it West-East trips for seven hours 35 minutes and East-West flights, against prevailing winds, for eight hours 35 minutes. Tht ALPA said many of the New York-io-Los Angeles flights during June were in the air more than nine hours. The Civil Aeronautics Board approved the transcontinental schedules over the objections of the union. The CAB ruling was appealed to the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals/ which denied a union motion for an injunction to ban flight schedules of more than eight hours. Extra Flights Trans Canada Airlines announced it w-iuld add six extra sections to Toronto today to ac- comodate passengers who otherwise would have gone on American flights. Whitley P. McCoy, director of foe Federal Mediation Service. said yesterday in Washington his agency is trying to settle a total of 145 strikes idling more than 170.000 workers across the nation. He said mediators also are stepping up efforts to stop strike threats in these industries: Electrical—Mediators will meet in New York Monday trying to break a stalemate in bargaining between General Electric Co. and the CIO Electrical Workers. Copper—The Independent Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers Union is bargaining with the Kennecott, American Smelting, Phelps Dodge and Anaconda Copper Companies. Rubber—CIO workers at Goodrich, Firestone and United States Rubber Companies may decide at any time to join about 25,000 fellow workers idled at Goodyear Co. plants. Atomic Energy—About 9,000 and CIO workers could strike at Oak Ridge, Tenn.. and Paducah, Ky. plants.

The motion merely says it is "resolved" that McCarthy's "conduct ... is unbecoming a member of the United States Senate, is contrary to senatorial traditions, and tends to bring the Senate into disrepute, and such conduct is hereby condemned." Duff, asserting that Indochina had fallen to the Reds while America's attention was riveted to the televised McCarthy-Army hearings said in an interview that investigative procedures had got "off the track."

Knowland Praises While Duff was joining- the slim ranks of Republicans publicly com mitted to striking at McCarthy, Sen. Knowland of California, the GOP leader, was sounding praise in an interview that he believed Cordon and Morse had made "effective points." Cordon said that if no one else does, he will move to send Flanders' resolution to the Judiciary Committee headed by Sen. Langer (R-SD), not listed as among McCarthy's admirers. Sen. Barrett (R-Wyo) said he Phillips said, "I saw no reason to cause further complications in this situation. I saw no practical advantage and felt if the pilots returned fire the gunboat would have been sunk."

Cordon <R; and Morse (Ind), both of Oregon. When Flanders read to the Senate his charges that McCarthy held an "habitual contempt of people" and had permitted his investigative subcommittee staff members to compromise America abroad, Cordon rose .to assert that the Vermont senator's resolution was "not supported on its face by a single allegation of fact." Cordon said the resolution ought j to be sent to a committee for study. That would postpone any immediate showdown on the issue — an eventuality that appeared to be welcomed by many senators not inclined to commit themselves in this election year. Morse, who characterized Me- 1 to a controversy Knowland said will be allowed to run its course "until we see what works out." McCarthy, silent most of the time as Flanders raked his record and Dirkseri defended him, made an unsuccessful attempt to force an immediate showdown in what Sen. Hickenlooper (R-Iowa"> described as "an area of personal disagreement" in the Senate.
