"This is not prac tical, it doesn't make good sense." "No one on his staff knows anything about state government," Jones said. "If they did we wouldn't have to have a special session." Jones said Rockefeller had five years to study what he was going to do. "No one in the state would build an eight-story building and not know what he would put in it," he said. "I don't think we're getting anything but a reformation of Gov. Nelson Rockefeller in New York," Jones said. Nelson Rockefeller Is the brother of the Arkansas governor. "They both say the same thing," Jones said. "Everything he (Winthrop Rockefeller) knows about state government is handed to him by Nelson." Jones said he didn't know what was going to happen during this special session. However, he said if it is determined that the bills: have merit and are for the good of the state, "then I'll support them."

Winthrop Rockefeller apparently is continuing, despite the Arkansas governor's announcement that the case was closed "well before the first of the year." Police Chief Melvin James announced here Monday that a He detector test showed that one of his prisoners was telling the truth when he said he had information about the purported splot. In Uttle Rock, Maj. William Struebing, head of the State Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division, said that his investigation was continuing and might be "for a long time to come." Jamiis said the lie detector test was administered by Chief Examiner H. A. Albert of the Polygraph Section of the Texas Department of Public Safety. He said he received the results from Austin Tuesday, and that they were being sent to the State Police in Arkansas. The prisoner who took the test, Zakar Garoogian, who is being held here in connection with several state and federal burglary charges, reportedly gave authorities details of the >plqt jlggt, December, bijt the de- more than 40,000 people.

Last week, Rockefeller told newsmen the case had been Closed. He said the Arkansas State Police 'had told him Garoogian was "irresponsible," and that there was no reason to be alarmed about his statements. But when Struebing was informed of James 1 announcement Monday, he said in a statement released through Bill Conley, the governor's press aide, that, "There are no important new developments in the alleged assassination plot ... The investigation is continuing. The case will not be" closed until every possible lead has been checked out, and this could keep the case open for a long time to com*?." Conley said he didn't know whether the case actually had been closed at the time of Rockefeller's announcement, or whether it had been continuing all along. He said he didn't plan to ask Struebing for further comment,and Struebing has refused to release any information except through Conley.

Grip Hew York in of a Garbage Strike NEW YORK (AP)- The Hospital Employes Union has been Instructed to defy a city move to have its members remove accumulated garbage at 71 New York hospitals as city sanitation men press their four-day-old strike in defiance of the courts. Mayor John V. Lindsay Monday ordered Hospital Department drivers to man the idle sanitation trucks today and remove the trash and garbage from municipal and voluntary hospitals under "full police protection." Union officials said their members would be instructed to defy the order. "We are not going to be used as strikebreakers," said Nick Cifuni, division director of the AFL-CIO American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employes. "We will instruct our members not to cross picket lines." The Uniformed Sanitatlon- mens' Association, a Teamsters Union affiliate, was due In State Supreme Court today to show cause why it should not be found in contempt for falling to obey a no-strike order issued Friday. State law prohibits strikes by public employes and the city sought to have the union fined U P fo $10,000 a day and lose Its dues CQlieptiOn-ipBtviedge under j that statute: • ...... -:•••,>". < 5 The law also provides jail terms for leaders of striking unions but the city did not ask prison penalties. Lindsay issued his order to the drivers after Health Department officials declared a limited, emergency affecting the hospitals where accumulations "are particularly hazardous because of the infectious nature of the waste." As the waste of a great city piled up at the rate of 10,000 tons a day, the mayor was asked If he had any plans to seek National Guard aid In the strike. Lindsay said that his staff had been in close contact with Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller's staff over the "Increasingly serious" health problem but added there were "no present plans" to call the guard. State Supreme Court Justice Saul S, Streit Issued a temporary injunction against the strike Monday after declaring: "It is an illegal strike to the del- riment of the public- eight mil- UQm BEACH, Calif, (AP)~- f he dernoristratdfs plefcetlfif the Queen Mary etalni \M once pfOffd monaffth of the Atlarttlfi Is still a ship-Of a barge, It's not 6. building, or Just a "thing" they contend, the 100 pickets who demon* strafed Monday are member $ of the APL-CIO Maritime trades Department, tn the group were t\ I •""•" '"""""• sailors, mates, pilots, stewards f \L I and other seagoing union members* Even though the Queen Mary was bought for $3,4 million by the city of Long Beach to be* conn a convention center, museum hotel and cafe complex, the pickets argue she Is still a ship-or a barge* Barges do not move under their own power but like ships they are worked by seafaring men, the unions say, Long Beach, on the contrary, has classified the ship as a building and staffed It with civil service workers, After the museum ,and the restaurants open, the workers will be members of landlubber unions, the maritime department says.
