However, he rejected labor- backed proposals to reduce working hours through legislation. The Chief Executive said the time had not yet arrived for changing the 40-hour law. In recommending repeal of section 14B of the Taft-HarUey Act—the so-called right-to-work Jaw — Johnson carried out a promise he gave to organized labor. This provision allows states to pass laws banning the union shop whereby workers are required to pay union dues to keep their jobs. Recommends Repeal Jolinson told Congress: "With the hope of reducing conflicts ia our national labor policy that for several 3'ears have divided Americans in various states, I recommend the re- pea! of section 14B of the Taft- Hartley Act with such other technical changes as are made necessary by this action." In another part of his mes sage, the President said repeal of 14B would ensure uniform application of national labor re^ lations policy. Union shop agreements are permitted by federal law in 31 states that have not acted to restrict them. The President's proposal ap peared certain to touch off a sharp clash in Congress over right-to-work. Repeal of section 14B is the AFh - CIO's top priority during; this session of Congress. AFL - CIO President George Meany has claimed that labor forces have the votes in the House and Senate to scrap the controversial Taft - Hartley provision this year. Disputes Meany Claim Reed 0. Larson, executive director of the National Right-to- Work Committee, challenged this. "They don't have the votes to repeal it at this time and I don't think they can get them," Larson said. Johnson urged "early and favorable consideration" by Congress of his recommendations for minimum wage extension and overtime and unemployment benefits changes as well as the right-to-work repealer. His message did not spell out how he proposed to extend coverage of the wage-hour law or how double time requirements would be applied. His comments on the unemployment insurance system, however, indicated that the administration would seek sweeping-changes in the system. "Now, when unemployment is lower than it has been for years, is the appropriate time to modernize the system so that it will better meet the needs of workers, the community and the nation," he said. "Today, weekly benefits are often too low in amount and too short in duration in relation to lost wages to enable the work ers to meet basic and non deferrable expenses. "Ceilings on compensation all too often fail to yield the original goal of 50 per cent of past wages. This is particularly true for workers who have the highest income levels and these workers are generally heads of family. The bill therefore assures adequate payments for a fixed duration for most regular workers." Johnson said that the changes would reduce the hardship and suffering that accompany un employment and stimulate the economy when it is most needed. ROYAL TOUR — Queen Elizabeth's 10-day visit starting today is the first to Germany by a British sovereign in more than half a century. The map locates the main points of the royal tour which will include a brief stop in West Berlin by the Queen and Prince Philip. (NEA Newsmap) Elizabeth U arrives in West Germany for tour De Gaulle dealing in other foreign affairs problems BONN (UPI) — Queen Elizabeth II arrived today on an historic visit to West Germany, her ancestral home, and was cheered by hundreds who turned out despite occasional showers. The monarch flew in from London to visit a country which for much of this century was Britain's most hated enemy. She will remain 10 days. The Queen, wearmg a green suit, arrived at suburban Wahn Airport shortly before noon. It was the first visit by a British monarch to Germany in 56 years and was expected to seal the friendship which has grown between the two nations in the 20 years following World War II, when the Nazi war machine drained Britain's resources. Accompanied By Phillip Queen Elizabeth was accompanied by her husband, Prince Philip. They were greeted at the airport by Chancellor Ludwig Erhard, President Heinrich Luebke, 16 members of the 20 man cabinet and lesser government officials. A large crowd, including many children, turned out to welcome the royal visitor. The royal party drove to the Hotel Petersberg, a 130 - room establishment on a 1,090-foot moun tain across the Rhine from Now You Know By United Press International 'The original proposals of U.S assistance for the economic recovery of Europe, later known as the Marshall Plan, were made by then Secretary of State George C.

The hotel was taken over by the government for the Queen's stay. Queen Elizabeth planned to lunch privately, then drive down the mountain and across the Rhine to call on Luebke in the villa Hammerschmidt, 105-year-old mansion which commands a magnificent view of seven mountains along the river. First Visit It was the Queen's first visit to the land of her Hannoverian ancestors and the home of her German in-laws. Prince Philip has visited Germany often, once wth two of their children, but the Queen is allowed no private visits until after an official trip to the country to which she wants to journey. The last visit to Germany by a British monarch was in February of 1909, when King Edward VII made a reluctant trip to Berlin. Kaiser Wilhelm was Edward's nephew but the German ruler disliked his British relatives and the feeling was mutual. Since that time, the British and Germans have been enemies in two world wars, tlie latter trying to gain control of the continent and the British seeking to maintain a European balance of power. By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst For most of the last week, the United States has been defending policies which the ad ministration of President Lyndon B. Johnson feels there should be no necessity for defending. In Europe at least, most of these arguments were directed against the devisive policies of President Charles de Gaulle. Accustomed to dealing with affairs far outside the sphere of French influence, the De Gaulle government had let it be known that "France disapproved and wants the withdrawal of troops who have landed in Santo Domingo." Against this, the French president had Johnson's own sum mation of the U.S. position in the Dominican Republic. It was: ". . . the people of that country must be permitted to freely choose the path of political democracy, social justice and economic progress ... we intend to carry on the struggle against tyranny, no matter in what ideology it cloaks itself." Demand Neutrality Against the American position, supported by most U. S. NATO Allies, that escalation of the war in Viet Nam is morally, politically and militarily justified, was the already well known French demand for Vietnamese neutrality and withdrawal of foreign forces, specifically the United States. De Gaulle ah-eady had under-, lined his opposition to U.S. involvement in Viet Nam by a virtual withdrawal from SEATO, the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization which among other things guaranteed the integrity of South Viet Nam. BACKSTAIRS AT THi WHITE HOUSE WASHINGTON (UPI)—Backstairs at the White House. Several thousand tourists were turned away from the White House the other day without being allowed to tour the Executive Mansion as they had expected. The so-called public tours operate five days a week, usually from 10 a.m. until noon and on special days, such as holidays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The White House is closed Sunday and Monday to facilitate cleaning and, more important, to give the police a little rest. Sometimes visiting is canceled on one of the regular tour days when President or Mrs. Johnson has something scheduled for one of the rooms on the ground floor or main floor. In such cases, there is usually a public notification and small signs are posted at the East Gate of the White House. The other day, however, someone on the staff forgot the President would be using the East Room that morning for a By Merriman Smith United Press biternational speech and that Mrs. Johnson was taking up much of the main floor at a luncheon for Senate wives. Only on the morning of the same day were the police notified, and it was too late. Thousands of tourists were gathered on East Executive Avenue and around the ellipse, waiting for the gates to open. Police passed the word ."shortly before the 10 o'clock opening time. Most of the tourists accepted the cancelation as part of the mysterious workings of the presidency, but some went away grumblhig. The grumblers scarcely c^n be blamed. Many families save the White House for the last day of their vacation tour of the nation's capital. And naturally they do not like it if they have to return home without being able to say they saw where LBJ and Lady Bird live. Pnident tourists might be advised to telephone the White House in advance if they're not sure of visiting hours.

Hanko Dale Sanders Carl King Happy Birthday from 11 E. State Ph. PY 3-1505 These were not the only areas in which "le grand Charles" was throwing his weight around. He had vetoed a move supported by France's partners in the European Common Market to renew explorations toward European political unity. He had appalled West German supporters by the fanfare with which he had entertained Soviet Foreign Minster Andrei Gromyko and German apprehensions were heightened when Gromyko implied that France accepted the existence of two Germanys. Lukewarm Denial A lukewarm French denial did little to quell German fears. Nor did the Germans take any more kindly to a Gaullist suggestion that the reunification of Germany should be left primarily to a European solution, with France and Germany to be the chief negotiators. Germans of all parties believe there can be no settlement of the reunification problem without participation of the United States. As for the United States, it seemed to be learning to take De Gaulle philosophically. Depending upon his health, it seemed likely that De Gaulle would be around for some time to come. It generally is accepted that he will run for another term in office in elections next December. The United States also was willing to admit, as De Gaulle himself frequently proclaims, that it was De Gaulle who restored France to political stability. And even a Gaullist and obstructionist France is better than the politically fragmented France that he inherited under the French Fourth Republic. ^ciettf MISS JOSEPHINE EEAY Society Editor poiiys OINTERS By Polly Cramtr DEAR POLLY — My grandmother's thoughtfulness saved me hours of time w-hen doing history homework.

'When I was asked to write a school paper about a great man in history, all I had to do was refer to grandmother's book. It would have taken hours to look up this material. — MRS. R. D. DEAR POLLY — We waited eight years to get wool wall-to- wall carpeting for our home. It looks lovely, but presents a real problem. We get shocks constantly from our doornob, light switch, metal or human we touch when we walk across the carpet. We helped it some by not wearing shoes. It is begin- nmg to get on our nerves and IS no laager the kidding matter that it was at first. Will this wear off in time and when? What can we do to lessen this static? — EMILY GIRLS — A "rug" man advised me that this often happens with new carpet, but things will be better when the rug packs down. The soles of your shoes help cause the friction that produces the shock. The more one drags the feet the more it happens. There is a spray on the market that supplies static-proofing and should last from one cleaning to another. It is recommended that a professional apply the spray. It is most important that the room be ventilated while the spray is being applied.—POLLY Air Force launches satellite VANDENBERG AFB (UPI)— The Air Force' today launched a satellite toward orbit, but again declined to report on its purpose or type.
