OVER.COUNTER SALES Deliverers Strike Ties Up Daily Papers in New York NEW toft* <AF)-Clfculatl<sn of majof We* York City daily newspaper* was-disrupted today by a strike of deliverers—their second in two day*, the papers planned over-the-counter tales. The deliverymen struck nine papers late Tuesday night after voting to reject a tentative settlement of * contract dispute with the Publishers Assn. of New York City. The agreement, reached Monday morning after all-night negotiations, ended an eight-hour walkout by the truck drivers, but was subject to union membership ratification. Renew Talks The publishers association and the Newspaper and Mail Deliverers Union were to renew talks today but too late to avert a disruption In delivery of afternoon papers in the event of a new settlement. Picket lines were set up around some of the newspaper plants. Barney O. Cameron, president of the association, said the newspapers planned to continue publication, selling copies over the counter at the plants. The deliverers' strike is not supported offlcally by other newspaper craft unions. However, a spokesman at the Dally News said that a number of printers scheduled to go to work between midnight and 2 a.m. refused to cross picket lines although reportedly ordered to do so by their shop stewards. One printer who did not report said there had been no order-from the union regarding the picket line. The decision to cross or not was by individual choice, he said. Worker absences were not reported at other newspapers. Had Been Delivered Some editions of morning newspapers already had been delivered to newsstands when the union ordered the walkout. Some delivery trucks rumbled back to garages without dropping off their bundles. Late press runs did not hit the streets, New York's four morning papers, the Times, Herald Tribune, Dally News and Mirror, put copies on sale at their plants. The afternoon papers, the Post, Journal - American, World - Telegram and Sun, the Long Island Daily Press and the Long Island Star Journal, were expected to follow suit. The Press and Star Journal have plants in Queens. The others are located in Manhattan. The contract rejected by the union covered two years and provided a |7 weekly increase—$4 the first year, $3 the second—to the prestrike basic wage of $103.82. The vote against acceptance was 877 to 722. Some 2,000 deliverymen are directly Involved in the dispute, but all the 4,500 members of the newspaper and mail de llverers union here were 7 entitled to vote. The deliverers struck for the first time in the current dispute at one minute after midnight Sun* day. They stayed out eight hours, returning when the tentative agreement was reached. Delivery of afternoon papers Monday was normal. Sam Feldman, president of the deliverers union, said the union would resubmit its original demands at today's bargaining session. The union originally asked for a $10-a-week wage increase, including $1 in fringe benefits, among other demands. The deliverers union struck the city's papers for six days early in 1957. Deliveries to retailers were curtailed. In 1953, six Manhattan papers were closed for 11 days by a photoengravers strike. The seventh paper suspended publication in sympathy with other publishers. GENERAL KILLED By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FT. RUCKER, Ala. (AP)-Maj. Gen. Bogardus S. Cairns, 49, commanding general of Ft. Rucker and its Army aviation center, was killed Tuesday when his light helicopter crashed on the post. He was born in New York City and graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1932.

By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press Newi Analyst WASHINGTON (AP)-A look at the record indicates Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas, leader of the Senate Democrats, won't have such a tough time as might be expected next year in keeping a check-rein on the newly elected Senate Democrats. There are 15 of them. Not one of them can be called wild-eyed. Almost all are moderate in their views. A majority of them—eight of the IS—were members of the House this year or in the recent past. Work Quietly In the House they worked pretty quietly under the leadership of Speaker Sam Rayburn, boss of the House Democrats. Rayburn, like Johnson, is a Texan. Both men are moderates, are close friends, work closely together. So, for a majority of the 15 new Senate Democrats, moving from the House is like exchanging Rayburn for Johnson. The three Republicans who won Senate seats this year for the first time were all members of the House this year. They are Kenneth Keating, New York; Hugh Scott, Pennsylvania; and Winston L. Prouty, Vermont. Johnson, who recently outlined a 12-point program for the Senate in 1959, omitted any mention of action on civil rights. On this point he may have trouble with some of the new men. They may ganj. up with the present band of liberals in the Senate — like Democrats Paul Douglas (111) and Hubert Humphrey (Minn), and Republicans Jacob Javits (NY) and Clifford Case (NJ)—to smash the present Senate rule on filibusters. Block Legislation Under the present rule Southern Democrats can pretty well block legislation on civil rights, if they want to, with unlimited debate. Changing the rule to make it easier to cut off filibusters would also make it easier to get civil •ights bills through. Four of the new Democratic Senators were members of the House this year. They are: Clair Engle of California; Eugene McCarthy, Minnesota; Robert C. Byrd, West Virginia; and E. L. Bartlett, who had for years been Alaska's delegate to the House, without a vote. These four were House mem- Railroad Will Drop Plans to Abandon Line WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Milwaukee Railroad Tuesday notified the interstate commerce commission it is dropping a proposal to abandon a 12-mile branch line between Tyndall and Springfield, S.D j The abandonment was approved by ICC last December over pro-j tests of the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission, shippers and' the Railway Labor Executives Assn. ' The Milwaukee said that after a| further study, it had decided not to proceed with the proposed discontinuance at this time. bers in past years: Thomas J. Dodd, Connecticut; Harrison A. Williams Jr., New Jersey; Stephen M. Young, Ohio; and Jennings Randolph, West Virginia. The three new Republican Senators — Keating, Scott and Prouty—were House members this year. Tag on Vlewi A newsman whose job Is cover- ng the House—he's been doing it For years—puts this tag on the views of the eight former Demo cratic members of the House and .he two Republicans who were House members: Engle—moderate to liberal; McCarthy — moderate to liberal; Byrd—liberal; Bartlett — moderate; Dodd—moderate to liberal; Williams — liberal; Young — moderate; Randolph — moderate. This same newsman, after watching the performance of the House members day after day from away back in the 1940s, de- scribes both Keating and Scott as moderate to liberal. Prouty is from the very conservative Vermont. No one around here is running for a bombshelter, either, at the thought of what may happen when these other new Democratic Senators—none of whom served In the House—come here to take their seats In January: Mayor Vance Hartke of Evansville, Ind., who calls himself a middle-of-the-road Democrat; Ed mund S. Muskie, twice Democratic governor of highly conservative Maine; or— Michigan's Lt. Gov. Philip A Hart; Howard Cannon, city attor ney of Las Vegas, Nev.; Frank Moss, county attorney of Utah's Salt Lake County; Gale McGee, history professor of Wyoming; and Ernest Gruening, former Alaska governor who wants to avoid being labeled either a liberal or conservative. By ED CREAGH WASHINGTON (AP) -Take It torn Robert Frost: what Amerca needs is Robert Frost. It's got him, in a sense: he's a highly eminent poet, a taltily genial old (84) New Englander from San Francisco, and for seven months he has been "consultant in poetry In English to the Library of Congress." All this and four Pulitzer prizes are not enough for Frost. School Integration "I want to be consulted on everything," he told a news conference Tuesday. He said 'the White Rouse has consulted him (on poetry only, though) and the Supreme Court AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD C Wednesday, Dec. 10, '58 fj has, too (about what he didn't! say) and of the three branches of government only Congress has deprived itself of his counsel. "I don't want to run for office," he said, "but 1 want to be a statesman," And he broadly hinted that If some senator wanted to retire and let him take over for a few months he could solve with a poet's insight all sorts of problems which baffle mere politicians. Sherman Adams, for example. He thinks well of Adams, vicuna coats or no vicuna coats, because the onetime White House aide understands poetry, Frost says, and several times, while in office, appealed for his advice. School Integration Then there's that little matter Bomber Crashes; 3 Dead, One Survivor ALTUS, Okla. (AP) - A Strategic Air Command stratofortress trailing long fingers of flame crashed six miles north of here early today. One survivor was found. The eight-jet "bomber, on a training mission from Altus Air Force Base, reportedly had eight crewmen aboard. The bodies of three were found on the frozen ground amid the wreckage in an open field. Witnesses said the plane, the Air Force's largest, circled low over Altus and seemed to be making an attempt to get to the base, a few miles to the east. The police department reported receiving numerous telephone calls from residents asking if the craft was having engine trouble. The survivor, unconscious, was found a quarter of a mile from the main wreckage. His parachute was open, but it was not known if he had jumped. The survivor and the three bodies were taken to the SAC base, located in extreme southwestern Oklahoma 14 miles from the north Texas border. ^^^^^^^^^^^^•ggg^^y^^^gjpj^^^""-^^^"^ TYPEWRITERS for Christinas So Thorn At Milan Printing Co., Inc. 130 W. Moplo . Ph. HE 3-2055 Deputy sheriff Kenneth Spears said the plane carried only ammunition. The Air Force has said stratofortresses can carry hydrogen bombs. Col. C. H. Davidson of the base said the plane has a normal complement of five, but carries more on training missions. of school integration: nothing to It, Frost said — just give an the kids .examinations and let 'era into high school when they understand readln' and writln' and 'rithtn*. tic. That's the way the white-haired poet talks — down to earth and with nary a shred of false modesty. He is, he seid at one point, the greatest authority on education "up and down the scale" that you can find anywhere. Book Learning Re could wish, he said at other points, that some recent presidents had more book learnin' — or at least more that stayed with them. He wouldn't give full marks to any president since Theodore Roosevelt. How come Frost, born in California, has lived most of his life in New England? Well, he said, the present Chief Justice of the United States, then Gov. Earl Warren of California, asked him that once and his answer was that he was carried away from the west coast as a child—screaming. And probably chuckling, too.
