George Wallace told a cheering throng in a joint session of the Louisiana Legislature today the people of the South "can join in shaking the liberals off the backs of the American people." The poised, fast talking Wallace came to Louisiana on behalf of his Free Elector presidential campaign. Wallace said he attended the recent national governors' conference, "and I can tell you the people of the South have shaken up the liberals of both parties." The House chamber was packed tight with spectators and legislators, senators were seated in chairs brought in while representatives — many bringing their wives — sat in their regular seats. Gov. McKeithen sat with Lt. Gov. C. C. Aycock and House Speaker Vail Delony at the speaker's stand while Wallace stepped down to the House microphone below to give his 28- minute talk. He was interrupted several times by cheers and applause. Speaking briskly, Wallace said "it is stimulating to know we have the overwhelming support of the people of this state, and many other states." "Liberal leftwingers can fool some of the people some of the time, but they can't fool all of the people all of the time," Wallace said. He said the "liberal" wing of the press had tried to picture him as "evil." He said Khrushchev and Castro had received the traditional certificate of appreciation after speaking to the National Press Club in Washington, but it had been denied to him. Wallace said he received a good vote in the presidential primaries of Indiana, Maryland and Wisconsin despite opposition from churches, the press and other news media. "We don't intend to run a racial campaign," he said. "We are interested in solving problems in keeping with the American concept, the free enterprise and the property ownership concept in this nation." "I have never in my life made a remark reflecting upon the race of anyone," the Alabama governor said. "A so-called civil rights bill, a severe attack upon our property owning and free enterprise system, is fixing to be passed," Wallace said. "Human rights do not exist in those countries which have destroyed property rights. In Red China and Soviet Russia all private property has been taken away and no human rights exist." "The mainstream of American politics is leading us right down to state socialism, and I'm for getting out of that mainstream," Wallace said. He criticized the U. S. Supreme Court ruling calling both houses in a legislature to be based on population. He said this was not the business of the federal courts. "I hope you in this state will join with us in other states and we can have the balance of power in the next presidential race," Wallace said. "I have more confidence in this than ever before." Wallace said no party can elect a president in November unless it carries seven Southern states the Democrats carried in 1960.

The step by stepi proposals were presented to the body in its regular meeting in the city hall and are as follows: 1—Opening Kirkmlan Street, South from East Scfiool Street to McNeese Street, i 2—Seeking state did in pav- ig the unpaved portion of Mc- tfeese Street from' Louisiana Street to Louisiana 14. 3—Requesting thei Louisiana Highway Department and the U.S. Bureau of Publ c Roads to add overpass structures on the South Lake Charles by-pass at Ernest Street and i|it Common Street. A two-man comnjiittee, with :sreal LaFleur as chairman and R. E. (Dick) Watsojn, was appointed by Council President Arthur Moreno, to meet with Arsene Stewart, director of the Louisiana Department of Highways, to study the proposals. Councilman juaFleur had urged the opening of Kirkman Street for several weeks and the matter had beejn postponed until today for action. He also urged the two adjled by-pass structures. COUNCIL OFFICERS—Jerry Harless, left, was elected as the new president of the Lake Charles City Council at this morning's meeting. Named to serve as vice president was Vincent Abate, right. Harlesa and Abate will be the last officers of the current council, whose term in office expires June 30, 1965. (See Story on Page 13). Proposal Fails By 24-15 Vote In Senate BATON ROUGE (AP) — The Louisiana Senate dropped the final curtain on the issue of a teacher pay raise in this session today in a 24-15 vote. Chairman B. B. Rayburn of the Senate Finance Committee made a dramatic final effort, to save the $48.8 million pay raise proposal for teachers, school bus drivers and other school personnel from a fatal committee vote. Sen. Jamar Adcock, Monroe, a floor leader for Gov. John McKeithen, led the fight which resulted in refusal by the Senate to al- fiY COMMITTEE Labor Bi Hearings Set Hope Is Seen For Setting Conoco Strike An air of hopefulness was expressed by a fedeifal mediation official after a two hour meeting Tuesday afternoon with officials of Continental Oil Co. and Teamster Loc|al 663. Sloan G. Springfield of the mediation service said he was hopeful that taljcs scheduled Thursday at 5 p.mj. between union and company officials would find a basis of djscussion that will lead to the isettlement of the strike next we|ek. The strike bega;n last Thursday at 8 a.m. Continental officials said they were encouraged by the talks during Tuesday afternoon's two- hour session. BATON ROUGE (AP)-Labor leaders headed by Victor Bussie, Louisiana AFL-CIO chief, will be kept busy in two House committee hearings today on labor-opposed bills including a right to work proposal. The labor boys said they aren't so worried about the right to work move. But a Senate-passed bill on workmen's compensation — which grants a raise from $35 to $40 in maximum weekly benefits to injured workers — is another matter. The House earlier this week passed a labor-backed bill to grant the $5 raise without any strings attached. The Senate bill, supported by Third Man Seeks New Judgeship A third candidate has filed as a candidate for 14th Judicial District Judge, Division D, in the July 25 primary. Jack C. Watson, who resigned as assistant district attorney Saturday, filed today with James G. Boyer, chairman of the district Democratic committee. Previously filing were attorneys Fred C. Selby and Charles C. Jaubert. Deadline for filing is 5 p.m Friday, employer groups, carries conditions labor doesn't want—including a definition of permanent disability. This is the one that's likely to stir all the fireworks when it is heard in the House Judiciary B Committee after House adjournment. By coincidence, the administration-dominated committee is headed by Rep. John Garrett, Claiborne Parish, at one time the House leader for right to work forces. But the new right to work bil this time will be heard in the House Labor and Industry Com mittee, headed by Rep. Anthony Vesich Jr., Orleans, longtime labor friend. Rep. Allen Haley, West Carroll Parish, introduced the right to work constitutional proposal which simply would submit the question of banning compulsory unionism to popular vote if the legislature approved. As a Constitutional measure, however, it requires a two- thirds majority vote in each house. Louisiana adopted a right to work law in 1954, but when Earl K. Long won his third term as governor in a 1956 landslide, right to work was repealed. Barry Says He Is Undecided City Council Votes to Resume Fire i°l!i* B ! Protection Outside of City Limits Fire protection in Ward 3 outside the Lake Charles city limits was resumed by the city fire department today. Mayor Alfred E. Roberts informed the city council today that property owners in t h e area had approved a three-mill maintenance tax. This money, along with a previously-approved $300,000 bond issue will be used to provide fire protection in the district. The mayor said city firemen had resumed out-of-city service.

Resident property owners in the new fire district approved the tax by a 4-1 margin in popular vote and 3-1 in property assessments. Unofficial popular vote f o r the tax was 717-193. Unofficial assessments for the tax totaled $1,379,146. Assessments against totaled $400,513. The three-mill tax was defeated by one vote in April when property owners approved a companion $300,000 bond issue with which to buy fire fighting equipment. Some of that $300,000 will now be used to purchase two pumper fire trucks with necessary equipment. Other funds will be used to install water hydrants where water mains exist, i The two new fire trucks will, be stationed in cily fire sta-: (ions and will be operated by city firemen. The three-mill tax will be used to maintain Jhe new equipment. About $47,000 annually is expected to be raised with the maintenance tax, according to the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury.

Thousands of dollars worth of property has been lost outside the city since tlfe ban on calls in those areas was put into effect. ' The tax gained its largest margin of approval Tuesday at Rosteet Elementary School. The popular vote for the measure there was 1J09-4.

Barry Goldwater said today he ;has not yet made up his mind I how he will vote on the civil rights bill. A final Senate vote on the bill is in prospect Friday, Goldwater, who has enough publicly committed convention votes to win the Republican presidential nomination if they stay with him, said in an interview he plans to make his de- |cision known Thursday. ; "I want to look closely at the effect of the public accommoda- |tions and equal employment opportunities sections of the bill as they now stand before I make up my mind," he said. "I will have a statement tomorrow." i Some of Goldwater's best po- ilitical friends have been urging i him to support the bill on the i final passage showdown. low the House-passed bill to continue on its legislative way despite a 12-3 adverse Senate Finance Committee vote. The Senate indefinitely postponed the teacher pay raise bill —blanking out any chance of further consideration in this 60- day legislature. Sens. Jesse Knowles of Lake harles and A. C, demons of Jennings voted against killing the teacher pay raise bill. Rayburn scoffed at the administration in its proposal to hold \ special session next fall to 'ind the money for a teacher jay raise. "I doubt that a tax could be rolled through this Senate on a wheelbarrow," Rayburn said, adding that McKeithen's industrial and newspaper backers would drop him once he tried to raise any tax for a teacher pay raise. The best way for Louisiana to build up its image, Rayburn said, was to solve the teacher pay problem. He pleaded for the Senate to send the bill on its legislative way by overturning his committee's action. "I for one," he said, "am ready to find the money" for the teacher pay raise. Rayburn said common laborers were making more money in the plant where he worked than the $3,400 starting pay of school teachers. Sen. Adcock objected to Rayburn's move, and offered a substitute motion to indefinitely postpone the teacher pay raise bill. Adcock said it was time again for him to explain Gov. McKeithen's views. The governor is dedicated to solving the problem. All he has asked, he said, is a little more time. Gov. McKeithen believes, Adcock said that allowed a few months that he can save millions of dollars of tax money that has been wasted in the past. Adcock pledged not lo run for ion return from World War I[ office again unless McKeithen j military service, solves the problem. | He is a member of the Moss The Senate Finance Commit-1 Bluff Methodist Church, t h e tee voted 12-3, a repeat of an j Parent Teacher Association at earlier vote against a similar both Moss Bluff schools, the Senate bill on teacher pay, to athletic association and the CLAUDIUS A.
