EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FRIDAY, JULY 30, 1965. Rails Lead Way As Mart Makes Substantial Gain NEW YORK (AP) Rails paced the stock market to a substantial gain in fairly active trading early this afternoon. Motors, steels, chemicals, electrical equipments, oils and nonferrous metals went along Gains of fractions to around a point predominated among key stocks. The rails were bought on prospects of increased military traffic and the market as a whole responded to reports of record second-quarter earnings and a fading of the threat of a recession Airlines continued to move lower on balance because of the government suggestion that they might lower fares or raise services Aerosrace issues were mixed, showing partial recovery from recent profit taking. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was up 2.4 at 325.4 with industrials up 2.8, rails urj 2.5 and utilities up .6. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was up 5.32 at 879.55 The top steelmakers and autos posted fractional gains mostly. Prospects of another strike deadline loomed in the steel industry but opinion was that the government would probably manage to obviate a strike in view of the stepped-up military program. Prices advanced in moderate trading on the American Stock Exchange. Corporate and U.S. Treasury bonds were mostly unchanged.

Mack (D-Ironwood), it has been announced. Mack, vice chairman of the Senate Appropriations C o m - mittee, said the bill, (S-33), is to hike the per acre payments from the State Treasury and rame and Fish Fund to t h e counties on state owned lands. Mack called the bill, "an important first step for our area ioward my ultimate objective— which is to have all taxes o n state-owned lands in the Upper Peninsula paid on an equal basis to those paid by private owners on the regular ad valo- rem tax rate. The payments represent a one-third increase over the 1964-65 totals, Mack announced. Marquette County, with $52,652 due from the treasury, tops the payment list in Mack's 38th Senatorial District — about $5,000 less than Luce and Schoolcraft Counties in the east e r n Upper Peninsula. The breakdown of payments by counties is as follows: Gogebic, $2,157; Ontonagon, $12,900; Houghton, $8,428; Baraga, $14,829; Marquette, 52,652; Menominee, $18,168; Schoolcraft, 56,886; Mackinac, $40,438; Luce, $57,433; Keweenaw, $720; Dickinson, $43,803; Iron, $16,461; Alger, $20,303; Chippewa, $45,506; Delta, $12,477.

L. SCHWARTZ III PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) The United Steelworkers executive board and wage policy committee met today to consider serving 30 days strike notice on the basic steel industry. Under an interim contract that averted a strike May 1, either side is free to serve 30 days notice of termination on or after Aug. 1. That would make midnight Aug. 30 the earliest possible date for the nation's first steel strike since 1959. Although negotiations reportedly have not progressed as well as expected, serving of strike notice would be routine. Both sides had hoped, however, that agreement on an industry- wide contract could be reached before Aug. 1 or that progress would be sufficient to make a strike notice unnecessary. Union sources said Thursday that I. W. Abel, Steelworkers president, and chief industry negotiator R. Conrad Cooper had met several times this week. They said it was possible some sort of breakthrough vould delay or eliminate a strike notice. The union and industry have been negotiating on three levels since Abel took command of the union June l from David J. McDonald. There have been talks involving the 10 major steel compa- is now being conducted. He is presently in custody at the Iron County jail, officers stated. Ironwood police reported that the suspect uses the names of William Kilodeaux and Robert Bronson and gives his address as 1981 Vallejo Ave., Vallejo, Calif. The man is being held at the Iron County jail in Hurley, officers stated.

No judge would face election until he had spent at least 18 months on the bench. House Speaker Joseph Kowalski, D-Detroit, said the issue of judicial vacancies was not urgent enough to warrant a special statewide election on a constitutional amendment. Many legislators said the Romney-Kelley proposal went too far. Currently, vacancies are to be filled by retired judges, but there aren't enough ex- judges to carry the load. The vacnacy situation has aggravated the problem of court case backloads. Delaying the amendment for a year would mean that all 13 circuit court judgeships created by the legislature this year would be filled by election. Had an amendment been passed in 1965, Romney might have been able to fill nine of them by appointment. "The proposed constitutional amendment went fantastically far," said Rep. William Ryan, D-Detroit, caucus chairman, in summing up the general Democratic feelings. "It is so broad that it would virtually eliminate the election of judges," said Rep. J. Bob Traxler, D-Bay City, majority floor leader. "There are five recorders court judges due to retire in th« SB next year and a half, and the SB governor would be able to appoint their successors, Jan. 1, 1967, despite the fact that there is an election two months be- THE WEATHER ELSEWHERE By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS High Low Pr.

Dominic Jacobetti, D-Negaunee, advocate of liberal controls, and highway director Howard Hill, backer of strict sign regulations. Jacobetti said the State Highway Department precipitated $139 million in U.S. highway funds from Michigan unless the state adopted a sign control law. Hill denied it. The state's former law was thrown out by the Michigan Supreme Court earlier this year. For a time the highway department suspended taking of highway bids and pushed for fast action on a new sign law — on the advice of the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads. Bids again are being taken, prompting several lawmakers to say the problem could wait until fall.
