One of the three—General Flee trie—took a relurn whack at .Meany. saying he "has made himself ridiculous in his unwarranted charges as a result, presumably, i}t his being misled" by James B. Carey, president of the International Union of Electrical Workers, which has contracts with GE. "We hope," GE said in a statement, "[his is not just a carefully timed attempt to discredit repu- lable companies in order to divert the spotlight from the current unfavorable disclosures on activities of some union officials before other Senate committees." Asks For Safeguards Meany made his charges yesterday in testimony before a Senate Labor subcommittee, lie asked thai proposed legislation requiring disclosure on welfare funds be applied to management - operated funds as well as those administered by unions. The labor leader then listed four cases which he said demonstrated "corruption and malfeasance" in management • handled welfare funds. In addition to General Eleclric, Meany listed Eastern Massachusetts Street Railway Co., which serves many Boston area communities; the Heed Glass Co. Inc., Rochester, N. Y.. now in bankruptcy; and an unnamed West Coast firm. The charges and replies include: General Electric—Meany said GE awarded its health insurance contract to Metropolitan Life Insurance Co.. without competitive bidding, and that two GE directors also are directors of Metropolitan. GE issued a statement in New York saying, "Mr. Meany should have taken the precaution to learn that the amount paid by the employes ... is fixed by the negotiated union agreement and that General Electric pays the entire balance, however high it may run. . . ." The company added it has handled its insurance through Metropolitan since 1920 and regards the While refusing to testify before :lie Investigations subcommittee. -------- 0 ---- ...^ Brewstcr subsequently appeared present contract as "the best before (he Rackets Committee available value."

AKUOWSM1TH WASHINGTON Wl - President fisonhower, jovial and looking chipper after his illness, was breakfast host today to 40 House Republicans in a new move lo get his bogged-duwn legislative program through Congress. The While House meeting marked the President's resuinp"- lion of regular business engagements in Ihe wake of Ihe stomach upset which kept him in bed all day Monday and sharply restricted his office activities yesterday. Eisenhower's physicians have reported him "almost" recovered from Ihe stomach distress. They attribute his brief illness to ' slight overindulgence in some types of food." .Some Slill Opposed The piu-nosc of Die breakfast Series is lo put Eisenhower in icloicr touch with GOP Congress iicmhcrs and enable him to do a Jil of (|iiiel missionary work on behalf ot his program. There were somc immediate indications that the President slill faces an uphill task in that respect, even with some members of his own party. Hep.

Brown said he also told Eisenhower that several of those at the breakfast favored culling the a d m i n islralion's 571,000,000.000 spending budget for the fiscal year starting July 1. One member of the congressional group noted (hat first news of the President's illness sent the slock market tumbling. "I! was a great day for selling short." Ihc congressman remarked. Eisenhower chuckled heartily and commented: "Yes, if only 1 could have known it." The market bounced back as Eisenhower recovered and his doctors emphasized that the attack was not connected with previous more serious illnesses. Eisenhower met his guests at 8 .in. then ushered them into the dining room where Ihc breakfast was served buffet style. Eisenhower was selling back in Hie usual swing of things swiftly after spending an hour and 45 minutes- at his desk yesterday morning. But he did decide against holding his regular weekly news conference today.
