Joseph Ramsey, vice president of the Machinists Union — one of six involved in the dispute over wage increases — said "they (the senators) tried to get the monkey off their back and pin it on ours but we don't go along with that." Johnson, in asking for the resolution in a special message to Congress Monday, said "the cost of a nationwide railroad strike would be incalculable." A shopcraft strike would tie up an estimated 95 per cent of the nation's rail mileage. Members of the six unions now average about $2.90 an hour and top skilled machinists earn 53.04 an hour. The unions want a 7 per cent increase. The companies have offered 5 per cent. The President said among the consequences of a prolonged walkout would be food shortages and health hazards, a 13 per cent reduction in the Gross Na- Monal Product, unemployment of up to 15 per cent and disrup- :ion of vital shipments for the Vietnam war.

By Wednesday there should e a tentative declaration for :ie presidents to consider. The residents may change the text, ut the positions of many gov-. rnments represented here are airly well fixed, and agreement n the major points of conflict eemed unlikely. The Latin Americans hoped Johnson would bring a major concession of some kind, either on the issue of the loan and credit dollars now restricted to purchases of U.S. products or some sort of preferential treatment for Latin-American goods n the U.S. market. U.S. representatives ered demands for Latin access to U.S. markets with the statement that only Johnson had tower to do anything.

Court Rules In Draft Card Case BOSTON (AP) - Draft card burning is "a demonstration of free speech," the 1st U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled, and it said the amendment to the Selective Service law prohibiting it is unconstitutional. The ruling Monday was in the case of David Paul O'Brien, 21. of Framingliam, who was sentenced to six years in prison after publicly burning his draft card. Chief Judge Bailey Aldrich upheld the conviction, however, because O'Brien had violated another section of the law by not having the card in his possession. Aldrich sent the case back to U.S. District Court with instructions to vacate the six-year sentence and impose a new one. He said he feared the original term had been imposed because of the public burning. H« Mutt B. Huti' REIDSVILLB, Ga.
