"Side by side with over-all policies for expanding mass purchasing power," the convention said, "we must have programs to insure that individual workers and their families are not made to suffer when technological development necessarily involves displacing workers rom their jobs. "Guaranteed wage plans can provide financial protection by maintaining living standards for a period of time to aid displaced j workers in making necessary adjustments . . . Moving Problems "If large-scale geographic shifts in industry take place, relocation allowances will, be necessary to assist workers in moving to new communities. "When new methods and new machines make specific skills obsolete, retraining facilities and retraining allowances must be made available -or in case of workers who may be near retirement age, i early retirement pensions may be! a more suitable solution." CIO President Walter Reuther told delegates that "just as the first industrial revolution cveated very serious economic and social problems of dislocation, so this new and more potent second industrial revolution" will create new problems. Reuther blamed President Ei- senho\ver for practicing "political fraud" by failing to back up recent statements of Secretary of Labor Mitchell. Mitchell told the convention here earlier this week he opposed state • right to work" laws which banned labor contract provisions requiring | workers to be union members. Ei- senhowcr .said the next day that Mitchell had not necessarily spo- j ken for the administration.

WASHINGTON to—Democratic opposition threatened today to hold up a Senate Banking Committee report on alleged scandals in Federal Housing Administration operations. Sen. Sparkman (D-Ala> said in an interview lie was "greatly disturbed" because the report ns now written "blankets in entirely too much and does not give nn accn rate pirtui'e of what really happened." "I don't want to see a condemnation of the whole building industry just because it contains a few bad actors," Sparkman said. The interim report on an eight- month investigation had been ticketed for public release Dec. 15. Sparkman -said he is "hopeful" Sen. Capehart iR-Indi, chairman of the Committee, would "not insist on mins the report until the 20th so ns to give an opportunity toward working out major differences we have on what the report should say." Capenart wa,s not in Washington and could not be reached for comment. He has just returned from an official trip to South America. I Sparkman refused to divulge the "major differences" or discuss the I contents of the report. But sources In a position to know | reported the document would put the committee on record as crmrnc- erizing the housing "scandals" as "the biggest in history." The alleged housing Irregularities —which the White House first disclosed last April—involved a post World War n apartment building: program under the Trumnn administration, and a home improvement program which still \s in operation. The Banking Committee's investigation centered largely on the apartment building program, now expired, which allegedly yielded builders and project sponsors mil- y/ THEATRE GORDON Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111.

SHEPPARD Continued from Page 1 "The day was breaking, is that right?" Corrigan asked. Sheppard said "yes, sir." Corrigan again asked him about his mental condition and Sheppard replied: "I was extremely confused. I didn't know where I was." "How long did you lie there," Corrigan asked. "T don't know," Sheppard replied. Earlier today Dr. Sheppard told of holding his wife, Marilyn, in his arms a few hours before she was murdered. They were sitting in the same chair, watching television, the accused man said. His attorney, William J. Corrigan, led him quickly to ihe events of the night of Saturday, July 3. Marilyn was beaten to death sometime after 12:30 on the morning of the fourth. Relaxed Evening; Sheppard described a relaxed evening which began with dinner with his neighbors, Mr. and Mrs, Donald Ahern. After dinner, he said, the two couples went into his living room and began watching television. Corrigan asked him where he was sitting. "I remember sitting in one of the chairs in the living room with Continued from Page 1 whose life sentence was commuted by Gordon to 18 years. Gordon said clemency was recommended by Pulaski Circuit Judge Harry Robinson and Sheriff Tom Gulley, and that Bailey had been a model prisoner. Gordon added that Bailey "is not out of the penitentiary, and need not be let out until he has served his full 18 years—which will be 12 years from now." "Miscarriage" Millard Brown, a convicted killer whose life sentence was commuted to 10 years by Gordon: The lieutenant governor said R. W. Griffith of Little Rock, former speaker of the House of Representatives, recommended clemency because "he thought there had been a miscarriage of justice." Gordon said he is convinced that Brown "should not have been convicted of first degree murder." Gordon said the man Brown was convicted of killing, Leo Williams, was an "unsavory character" who had threatened Brown. Officials of Washington County bitterly criticized the commutation given to Brown. Prosecutor Ted Doxsey charged that officials were not consulted, and said Gordon had abused the governor's clemency powers. Meanwhile, Gov. Cherry revoked part of a .furlough which Gordon issued for slayer Les Eutledge of Independence County. Cherry, who was out of the state when the clemency orders were issued by Gordon, cut a 00-day furlough from prison to 15 days. 10 Hurt in Navy Plane Accident HATBORO.

Barnev were in the same chair, sitting • quite close by necessity, watching television." He said Mrs. Ahern made some remark "that we weren't the only ones who were in love," and that she went »nd sat in her husband's lap. A few moments later, Sheppard testified, his wife, who was four months pregnant, said her position in the chair hurt her back. When she got up, he said, he lay down on a couch on his stomach. Then, Sheppard continued, he fell asleep. He could not fix the time of this. The courtroom onct more wis Jammed.
