Nice Sleeping Cool and fair tonight, with low in 50s. Sunny Thursday, high in 70s. Vol. 45 No. 139 LAFAYETTE-WEST LAFAYETTE, IND., WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 10, 1964 64 Pages 7 Cents WW 1 UULd7 a, Ristine, Bontrager Selected Alcoa Strike Averted Here A threatened walkout of 1,-600 union employes at Lafay ette's Aluminum Company of America plant was averted, at least temporarily when Tippe canoe County Circuit Court Judge Warren B. Thompson is sued an injunction to halt the strike Tuesday night. The strike, by members of Local 115, Aluminum Workers International Union, was called in support of a strike by members of the same union at Alcoa's plant at Massena, N.Y The walkout would have taken effect at 11 p.m. Tuesday. Judge Thompson beat the deadline by several hours. His" temporary injunction order stated that the strike appeared to be an unlawful act which would result in "substantial and irreparable injury and damage to the plaintiff (Alcoa)." HEARING SET He set a hearing, on whether to issue a permanent injunction for 10:30 a.m. next Monday. The injunction petition, filed for Alcoa by Attorney J. Frederick Hoffman of Lafayette, charged that the threatened strike would be in defiance of a no-strike clause in a contract, between the aluminum firm and New Yorker Killed At Monticello MONTICELLO A New York man, whom police believe may have fallen asleep at the wheel, was killed at 2:50 a.m. Wednes day when his car slammed into a tree on U.S. 24 at the west edge of town. Pronounced dead on arrival at White County Hospital was Lloyd M. Wilder, 69, of North- ville, N. Y. Wilder's daughter and her two small children were reported in "good" condition at the hospital later Wednesday, suffering from cuts and bruises. Monticello police said Wilder died as a result of severe head injuries. They said his car was equipped with seat belts but they were not in use at the time of the wreck. Also injured were Bobby Sauve, 2; Brenda Lee Sauve, 8 months, and their mother, Sharon Sauve, 18, of Northville. Investigators said Wilder's car, which was eastbound, veered across the highway, ran over a curb, and hit the tree. union, which will expire June i, 1965. Alcoa, in the petition, claimed that the strike would injure its customers which include the United States government, and would injure the defense of the United States. The plant employs about 2,150 persons at the present time. J. T. Barclay, works manager, requested union employes on the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. and the 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. shifts to report for work as usual after the temDorarv miunction was granted. Plant officials said Wednes day that spot-check of the two shifts showed some absenteeism, however. Members of Local 115 cast a 53 per cent vote in favor of the sympathy strike in late May, but union rules require a two- thirds majority. Unon employes at Massena have been on strike more than two weeks following a breakdown of discussions over reclassification of about 60 hourly rated jobs. Alcoa obtained similar tern porary restraining orders hanning svmDathv strikes at Yankeetown and plants in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois and Iowa. Any strike at Alcoa's Warrick Works at Yankeetown was barred by an injunction issued bv Judee oro tern K. William Weyerbacher m warncn cir cuit Court at Boonville. He set a hearing next Monday. Alcoa has about I'M workers at Yankeetown. Yank Pilot Dies Aboard Rescue Ship PRESTWICK, Scotland (UPI) An American fighter pilot died aboard a rescue ship Wednesday after bailing out of his stricken F100 Super Saberjet and battling winds and huge waves for i nours in a uny rubber dinghy. A U.S. Air Force spokesman reported the death of Capt. James H. Davis, 32, of Wash ington, D.C., several hours after he was picked up by the weather ship Juliet 420 miles west of Ireland. The spokesman said Davis died of exposure. His F100 Super Sabrejet developed trouble late Tuesday on a flight to Orland, Norway, from Mvrtle Beach. S. C. Re ports said Davis was one of 18 pilots engaged in the non-stop flight for an exercise called "Operation Express." Hughes. Bray Rip Procedure Interest High In Hot Conclave INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Lt. Gov. Richard O. Ristine won the Republican nomination for governor and State Sen. D. Russell Bontrager of Elkhart captured the party's nod for the U.S. Sen ate in a steaming state conven tion Tuesday. The two leaders of the often criticised 1963 legislature each triumphed on the third ballot in convention slowed by tedious system of counting votes sep arately for each contested race. Ristine, from Crawfordsville, led from the start with a stead ily growing vote, and won when Secretary of State Charles O Hendricks and Fourth District Chairman Robert E. Gates let their delegates go after the sec ond ballot. BRAY IRATE An angered Congressman William G. Bray of Martins ville charged before the third ballot that Ristine workers had circulated a false report just as the second ballot was starting that Bray was dropping out. Bray said his campaign man ager, Dan cravens ot hranknn, was refused a chance to an nounce on the public address system that the silver-haired congressman was not quitting. Bray blamed Thomas A. Gall-meyer of Fort Wayne, permanent convention chairman, and State Chairman Robert N. Stewart of Columbus, asserting they were' Ristine's supporters. Ristine's victory with 1,212 votes on the third ballot also brought an angry outburst from a suporter of State Treasurer Robert E. Hughes, who stormed up to the platform to protest the operation of a voting booth where he was a watcher. The final count for governor showed Hughes second with 599 votes, followed by Bray with 236. Former State Sen. G. Rich ard Ellis of Kokomo had 77, Gates 29 and Hendricks 15 "it f 'iMnw'itrwuw iK'tl; : , .,!..!' .' !-i I-'-'. all UIUllUUiUl. ... ..IMU , . ' !'. ' I ,i 1 " !- M .1 - ;1 'V.

(AP) Flood waters chased at least 2,000 persons from their homes here Tuesday night after leav ing 30 or more dead and hun dreds homeless upstream. Gov. Tim Babcock "estimated damage from the flood, Mon tana's worst, at 510 million. President Johnson declared seven northwestern counties a disaster area. In the northwest, hit first by the three-day flood, waters receded and rescue teams started mopping up. The Sun River crested 11 feet over its flood stage of 12 feet at midnight in this city of 70,000. A spokesman for the Air Force and National Guard's res cue operations estimated 2,000 to 3,000 persons were avacuated from homes here and in the flooded areas to the west and north. Tom Sullivan, manager of a Red Cross shelter, said he had made records of about 1,300 persons evacuated from homes west of Great Falls and from an exclusive residential area sur rounding a country club and golf course. The shelter is in West Side Junior High School, where more than 200 residents slept Tuesday night. The 14th Street bridge in Great Falls held fast despite a heavy pounding by water, trees, parts of farm buildings and other debris.

Ball set out Thursday on an emergency mission to warn Greece and Turkey of the Johnson administration's concern about the Cyprus crisis. Informed sources said Ball carried word that the United States is ready to take sharp measures their nature unspecifiedto prevent the con flict from degenerating into a Greek-Turkish war or otherwise disrupting the eastern flank of the North Atlantic Treaty Or ganization. 'UTTERLY IMPOSSIBLE' Before boarding a plane here, Ball told newsmen "it is utterly impossible for war to break out between the two North Atlantic treaty partners because of the serious consequences this would have for the whole free world." Ball, who has spent two days at the closing phase of the U.N trade and development conference, canceled a scheduled trip to London to undertake his mis sion in Athens and Ankara. Ball changed his plans on di rect orders from President Johnson. He said he is meeting Greek Premier George Papandreou in Athens tonight and will leave for Ankara later in the night for talks with , Turkish leaders. He is due back in Washington late Thursday to report to Johnson He said his trip was not in tended as a mediation effort because "this problem can only be solved by the parties direct ly involved. NEED REALISM "Any solution will require s great deal of realism and gen erosity on all sides," he added Earlier, he scrapped a planned maior speech to the de velopment conference, telling the delegates of 122 nations the measure of agreement was insufficient to warrant a review of their accomplishments. President Makarios of Cyprus, leader of the Greek Cypriots, called Tuesday night for an urgent meeting of the U.N. Security Council meeting to "denounce threats of the Turkish government to invade our is land." In a note to heads of state and government he charged that Turkey has now amassed a great number of naval and air forces ready for immediate invasion of Cyprus." CHARGES VIOLATION He accused the Turks of re peatedly violating air space over Cyprus and dropping arms to Turkish Cypriots. Foreign Minister Spyros Ky-prianou, dispatched by Makarios to arrange for the council meet ing, told newsmen he planned to The Senate's public galleries were packed as the crucial vote on cloture was taken. Tight se curity was maintained around the Capitol as additional per sons pressed for a chance to get in. ALL-NIGHT SESSION The vote followed an all-night session of the Senate at which Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.

Makarious called for council action after repeated invasion alarms had been sounded in both Nicosia and Athens. with a shudder that was felt by onlookers. Air Force teams said they rescued at least 200 persons from rural areas. The Air Force was using Malmstrom Air Force Base at Great Falls for a head quarters for 11 helicopters and other craft. Pilots made 38 flights Tues day and were prepared to take additional supplies to flood vic tims evacuated to other areas. OTHERS HOMELESS At least 400 were homeless in the northwest counties of Cas cade, Chouteau, Flathead, Gla cier, Pondera, Teton and Toole, those designated for federal disaster relief. Hardest hit was the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. Highway 2 was opened to East Glacier, the eastern gateway to Glacier National Park, and U.b 89 was opened for the first time since Monday, allowing rescue operations to reach Babb, near the Canadian border. A road was opened south of Browning to the Two Medicine Creek, but washed-out bridges and roads still had the Birch Creek area isolated. It was the Swift Reservoir dam on Birth Creek that broke Monday, sending a 30-foot wall of water downstream. This water surged into the Marias River. Other flooding creeks pushed the Teton River over its banks. Both rivers flow into the Missouri River near Loma, population 200, which was evacuated Tuesday night. Drinking water, contaminated in numerous smaller communi ties, was safe in Great Falls WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) President Johnson said today many of the world's most urgent problems will persist beyond the cold war, and outlined a far-flung program for attacking them. He said he intends to dedicate 1965 to the search for new techniques to make man's knowl edge serve man's welfare. To commemorate the United Nation's 20th birthday, 1965 has been designated as Internation al Cooperation Year. He took note of that in a speech prepared for commencement exercises at Holy Cross College. "Let this be the year of sci ence, let it De tne turning point in the struggle, not of man against man, but of man against nature. In the midst of tension, let us begin to chart a course toward the possibilities of con quest which bypass the politics of the cold war," he said. For, our part, we intend to call upon all the resources of this nation public and private to work with other nations to find new methods of improving the life of man." Johnson spoke of poverty, of disease, and of diminishing nat ural resources in enumerating menances to man's welfare. He said there is no simple so lution of these problems. In the past, he added, there would have been no solution at all; but, to day, "the constantly unfolding conquests of science give man the power over his world and nature which bring the pros pects of success within the pur view of hope." Among other scientific ad vances that he mentioned was a breakthrough, in the past sev eral months, in the use of large scale atomic reactors for com mercial power. He said the de velopment of the large-scale re actor offers the dramatic pros pect of transforming sea water into water suitable for human consumption and industrial use. During International Cooperation Year, Johnson said, this leagues not to shut off the debate. The vote to apply the Sen ate s debate limiting cloture rule was 71 to 29. This was four more votes than the re quired two-thirds majority. Byrd began his speech at p.m. ana continued until a.m. When he finally quit, the Senate took an. eight-minute recess, then went back into session. It had agreed Tuesday to meet at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Since the adoption of the cloture rule in 1917, all previous attempts to use it to cut off a filibuster against a civil rights bill had failed. Leaders of both parties became convinced in the face of the all-out position of the Dixie forces to the present bill that debate-limitation had to be obtained if the bill was to pass. Just before the vote, Republican Leader Everett M. Dirk-sen of Illinois introduced the BULLETIN Voting for cloture were 44 Democrats and 27 Republicans. Opposed were 23 Democrats and 6 Republicans. One of the Republicans voting no was Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, the leading contender for his party's presidential nomination. leaders' substitute bill worked out with Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy. Overnight, the substitute had been revised further to include the jury trial amendment adopted 51-48 in the Senate Tuesday. The adoption of the amendment, sponsored by Sen. Thrus-ton B. Morton, R-Ky., was credited with winning some crucial Republican votes for cloture. Off-the-floor maneuvering continued right up to the hour of the vote.
