Demos; Keeps Hopes Alive For Senate Seat INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Mayor Charles H. Boswell of Indianapolis was elected Marion County Democratic chairman Saturday, triumphing over Gov. Matthew E. Welsh's forces in the county. Boswell's victory over Judson F. Haggerty, the party's nominee for Marion County prosecutor, by a 619-to-391 'vote of the precinct officials meant thai the mayor will try to keep alive his bid for the party's nomination for the U. S. Senate. The Democratic reorganization meeting climaxed one of the bitterest factional splits in the parly's local history — a split which seemed sure to affect Democratic chances of carrying the county Nov. 6. The battle reached a peak Thursday after Welsh puiblicly endorsed State Rep. Birch E. Bayh Jr. of Terre Haute for the senatorial nomination. Boswell reacted with a bitter blast at. the governor, .accusing him of a political double-cross. Even before that', Boswell had engaged in a public name-calling contest with- Andrew Jacobs Jr., the Democratic nominee for llth District congressman, at party headquarters on primary election night. The mayor said he would fighl to the wire for the senatoria" nomination at the June 22 state convention if he won the county chairmanship. However, Welsh's endorsement of Bayh made the letter's nomination a foregone conclusion. The Marion County Democratic riY/i'flanization meeting held top interest throughout . the state as both parties held their county re organization meetings in all 92 counties. Incumbent officials were retained in most cases. Despite a report by Democratic State Chairman J. Manfred Core that a bitler intra-party fight wa going'on in Wayne County, all was harmonious at the party's reor ganization meeting there. Coutjty C h airman Charles Howell was re-elected by accla mation and Mrs. Margaret Wil' liams ' was retained as vice chairman.

DRUG STORE Church Paper Defends Strikers In Spain MADRID, Spain (AP)— Spain's triking workers miners and industrial got a organ boost Saturday of the Roman latholic Church and there were ndications Gen. Francisco Fran:o may try to settle the walkouts >y granting better wages. Some 70,000 men—mostly coal miners in Asturias Province and workers in industrial areas around 3ilboa in the Basque country of :he north remained on strike in in unusual wave of labor trouble : or Spain. But there was no indication that :he work stoppages were spread- ng, and some government sources expressed the hope the movement had reached its crest. The Roman Catholic weekly magazine Eclesia, official publica- ion of the Spanish Catholic Acion, defended the workers' right :o strike as a natural and Chris- Jan right. Sources in Bilbao said Basque !atholic priests had been actively supporting the walkout of industrial workers from nearly a dozen important factories. The Catholic weekly is not sub' ject to government censorship which-has kept most news of the labor crisis out of the Spanish press. But Eclesia's editorials must have approval of the Church leadership. With some of the Asturias mine strikes entering their second month, there were indications that Franco's government has decided to speed a settlement, not by the old-fashioned method of force anc pressure, but by ordering negotia tion of broadly based labor agree- scheme based on better pay for improved production. Many Spanish workers keep families on wages of 4C to 60 pesetas a day. It lakes 66 pesetas to equal a dollar. Asturias' miners, who spearheaded the strike movement, are paid better than most. Citing higher living costs, they have been demanding the equivalent of about $2.10 a day, compared with .heir present $1.40 to 51.60 a day in order to get on the same wage evel with some industrial workers who recently^ got increases. Franco officials shouted "communist inspiration" when the first strikes began. But they appeared ;o be coming around to the idea .hat economic rather than political demands were the basis of most strikes. Some pro-Communist underground groups have been nibbling at the fringes of the labor crisis, but they seem to have had little success in attracting support. would not say wha ments. Officials plan Franco and his Cabinet adopted at a meeting Friday.
