(UP) — Gov. Loroy Collins gave a Jewish couple asylum in Florida Thursday with their adopted Catholic daughter, holding that -the child's real mother had denied her "the right to be wanted and to be loved." Collins also denied on legal grounds the extradition request of (he state of Massachusetts where Mr. and Mrs. Melvin B. Ellis had been charged with "kidnaping" blond Hildy McCoy. 6. The true mother started the action when she found out the foster parents were Jewish. The Florida governor, a Protestant ruling on a Jewish-Catholic custody contest, ruled that Massachusetts had built up a "synthetic" criminal ca.se against the Ellises. But, he said as the couple stood before him holding hands, it had been argued Hildy's natural mother had the right to have the child reared in her own Catholic faith. This right, he said, must yield "to more fundamental rights." "The great and good God of all of us," Collins said, regardless of faith, grants to every child first the right to be wanted and secondly thp right to bo loved. Hildy's mother has denied both these rights to her." Both Parents Overcome "It was the Ellises in truth and in fact, who have been the persons through whom God has assured to Hildy, these first two rights as one of his children," Collins said. When the governor announced his decision at a jam-packed hearing room, Mr. and Mrs. Melvin B. Ellis stood silently holding hands.

Postal Group Votes Hike Of $462 Million Increase In First Class, Air Rates x Sure To Arrouse Opposition WASHINGTON ('UP)—The House Post Office Committee, in a victory for Postmaster General Arthur E. Summerfdeld, approved an administration bill Thursday to hike postage rates 462 million dollars- beginning July 1. But the'measure still faced • a long, hard path in the House and Senate. There is strong opposition to the penny boost in first class and air mail rates by lawmakers whfl contend the public already carries too much of the postal burden. Magazine lobbyists also are expected to protest the corr.fnittee- approved hike in second class rates. Chairman Tom Murray (D-Tenn) said the committee approved the measure by a decisive majority with almost no change. Before finally approving the bill, ho committee voted four annual 15 per cent increases in second class rates for newspaper's and magazines. This would bring in 33 million -dollars annually by the time the last of tile series of boosts becomes effective. The committee earlier approved the major part o£ the administration bill, including a boost in first- class letters from 3 to 4 cents an ounce and air mail letters from 6 to 7 cents. Regular post card rates would go up from 2 to 3 cents and airmail post cards, from 4 to 5 cents. The plan would cost the public an extra $314,700,000 a year on first-class mail, $17,100,000 on air mail letters and $32,800,000 .on post cards. The committee also previously approved a two-step increase in third class (advertising 'matter) rales, amounting to 128 million dollars a year when fully effective. The total bill would produce $528,500,000 a year by 1991, when the last of the second class rate boosts became effective. The committee voted increases in all three rate classes exactly as proposed by Summerfield and made only (wo minor changes in his requests, neither of I/hem affecting rale hikes. A number of amendments, both raising and lowering Summerfield's proposal were defeated. Deny Prlnceos Curnline S!sk MONACO (UP)—-Prince Rainier and.

WASHINGTON (UP)' - The; 85,000-member Laundry Workers Union was suspended ' from the AFL-CIO Thursday and two other unions—the Distillery Workers and Allied Industrial Workers — were placed on one-year probation for misuse of welfare funds. The "precedent. - setting crackdown by the AFL-CIO executive council came as the House Labor Committee scheduled hearings next week aimed at drafting- legislation to protect union welfare Funds against "pillaging." Chairman Graham A." Barden said some 40 million dollars was at stake. In suspending the Laundry Workers Union, the AFL-CIO high command announced that it would recommend at the AFL-OIO convention in December that the union be expelled outright from the big labor organization.. The three unions were accused some two years ago by a Senate committee of misuse of welfare funds and had been under .investigation by the AFL-CIO for about a year. A federal, grand jury also is looking into some phases of the case. >i The executive council ruled that ;he Laundry Workers had failed to abide by its order of last February to clean house or face suspension at the council's current meeting. Therefore, it took the first step toward the union's ouster. In the case of the 75,000-member Allied Industrial Workers and the 35,000-member Distillery Workers, ;he council said it was- not satis- tied that they nad cleaned house satisfactorily. It gave them a year to do 'so under AFL-OIO supervision. It was the second major disciplinary action taken "by AFL-CIO leaders this week. On Monday, the council found> Teamster President Dave Beck guilty of "gross misuse" of union funds and ousted him as an AFL-CIO vice president and cuncH member. ' Teamster leaders are preparing to call a meeting o£ the union's executive board, possibly next week, in a move that could topple Beck as head of the nation's biggest union, Beck faces ouster if lie refuses to go peaceably. But the action of the AFL-CIO executive council against the Laundry Workers was the first Individual Tax Burden $'180 WASHINGTON (UP) — Congressional tax ex!|>erts predict the federal government in fiscal 1950 will collect an average of about $480 in taxes for every man woman and child in Oho nation.

Driver Trapped As Car Hangs On Precipice Attempted To Drive Through Stream; Car Swept To • Edge Of 30-Foot Cliff MT. VEBNON, Ind. (UP). — A man trapped in his automobile for nearly 45-minutes while it hung precariously on the edge of a 30- foot cliff was rescued by two men in a motorboat here Thursday. Walter Stabach, 48, Chicago, was driving toward Mt. Vernon on Ind. 69 near Solitude, Ind., when he came . to a portion of the road .flooded for about 200 yards. The water had come from over bhe banks of nearby Big Creek. Stabach said he decided to try the crossing in spite of a sign warning motorists of the high water ahead. When he was about midway across the flooded portion of the road, • said Stabach, his car was suddenly swept by the force of the rushing water to the edge of a 30-foot cliff near the bank of the usually dry creek. Sheriff Edmond E. Rutledge, who was directing traffic around the water, said he saw the car spin over to within a fev^ feet of the drop-off and stop. Rutlodge immediately summoned a ladder truck from Ore Mt. Vernon Fire Department but repealed efforts to reach Stabach failed. Although the water was only four feet deep outsido 'he car's door, Stabach s.oid he was afraid to move for fear the car would drop over the cliff where water was more than 30 feet deep. Stabach was finally rescued when Casper Eilerl and Henry Lang, both from Mt. Vernon, went oul to the stranded car in a motorboat and brought him back to dry land. . Sheriff Riitledge said the rescuers had a difficult lime reach ing Slabach because of strong currents. New York was l.ho lllh state to ratify the Constitution.
