Panama Canal Blocked by Jap Vessel By LUIS NOLI PANAMA (AP) - The grounding of a 746-foot Japanese ship loaded with 51,806 tons of iron ore midway through the Panama Canal blocked traffic both ways Sunday and may keep the 50-mile waterway closed for several days. More than 60 ships Were held up in the canal and at both ends. The Shozan Maru lay in 4? feet of water where she settled after scraping a rocky channel bank that gave her a 75-foot gash in her hull, Her deck was 12 feet above water. A floating crane sought to raise the bow by pumping air into the flooded parts of the vessel. Authorities hoped this would enable tugs to move the disabled vessel out of the 300-foot-wide Gaillard Cut, the narrowest point in the channel. If the effort fails, enough iron ore will have to be removed from the hold of the ship to permit it to be towed to a mooring out of the line of traffic. The freighter, bound from Peru to France, struck the bank a mile from the northern end of the nine-mile cut. Water rushed into the forward ballast tanks and the boat began to settle at the bow. The 104- foot-wide ship was stuck about in the middle of the channel, which is 300feet wide. Divers said the gash was 6 feet high and ran just 10 feet above the Shozan Mar u's keel. They said the cargo holds were not damaged. The Gaillard Cut, with banks more than 300 feet high at some points, slices through the Continental Divide. Work is under way to widen it to 500 feet. Even after the Shozan Maru is freed, movement of the backed up traffic will be slow. One set of canal locks 1 is being overh- . auled,; putting one, of ,the two navigation lanes out of commission. Ships are not able to move in both directions at once in some sections. Four Arrested in Gambling Raids at Spa HOT SPRINGS, Ark.

(AP) - A proposed city ordinance in E"l Paso is rubbing massage parlor operators the wrong way. The ordinance would prohibit women attendants from massaging men, and men from massaging women. It would license all massage parlors, and it would permit police to revoke licenses for violations of the law. "I never saw a man who wanted to be massaged by another man," said Marian L. Swlgart, a parlor operator. "I couldn't make a living if women were not allowed to massage men patients." . hovah's Witnesses, Thirteen congregations and three Isolated groups in this area compose the circuit and each will have a delegation in Hope.

Jap Agriculture Minister Quits TOKYO (AP) - Agriculture- Forestry Minister Tadao Ku- raishi resigned today under fire from opposition party leaders who accused him of trampling on the Japansse constitution's renunciation of war. Prime Minister Elsaku Sato accepted the resignation to end a deadlock which had blocked parliamentary action for 16 days. After the North Koreans seized the USS Pueblo, Kuraishi told a news conference: "We need warships and guns in the background to Insure the safety of our fishing boats." AP Labor Wf Her MtAMT BEACH (AP) APkClO said today the new federal mtfiitfittm wafe of $1,60 per hour is not etwugh for i worker to support a family arri pressed Congress anew to enact ft $2 minimum. "the APkClo'* objsetlve of a $2 minimum wage can no longer be regarded as a long* range goal, It must be reached as soon as possible," said the executive council of the 14 mil* lion member labor federation. the $1,60 minimum that went into effect this month will fatten the paychecks of m^re than 1 million lower paid workers by an estimated total of $2 billion a year, Nathaniel Goldflnger, chief AFL-C10 economist, said a $2 an hour minimum would put another $6 billion a year into the pockets of workers at the bottom of the nation's wage scale. The AFL-C10 council said minimum wage hikes benefits the nation's economy because most of it flows immediately into consumer markets. the labor leaders discounted claims by some business groups that raising the minimum wage puts some firms out of business. they cited a Labor Department study of the effects of the minimum wage hike from $1.25 to $1.40 an hour a year ago, showing that out of 700,000 newly covered firms only three plant closings involving 33 workers could be found, "In all the covered areas, employment actually went up," a Labor Department spokesman confirmed. He said the Labor Department is conducting a similar study of the impact of the latest increase to $1.60. "the basic minimum wage of $1.60 an hour, which became effective Feb. 1, still falls far short of providing adequate support for a family," the labor council said. It said Congress should at least extend the present $1.60 minimum to the approximately 11 million workers still not covered by the law. rWfWff £§ ( Court Hot EARLINS JESTER LlffLE ROCK (AP) - ._ Arkansas sopfem* C6ufl today upheld White C<5uftlj> Circuit Court's refusal to gfani t wftt of habeas corpus to Cariond Hammond, who is tamed in Louisiana for the theft of $2S,- 006 in 1364.
