UNIFAX government's efforts to settle the railroad work rules dispute were virtually halted today. Some officials predicted that congressional action would be needed to avoid a crippling rail strike after July 29. President Kennedy's six-man fact-finding committee adjourned until Monday its investigation of the four-year-old battle over railroad demands for rule changes to abolish alleged "fieattierbedding," or unnecessary jobs. No negotiations were scheduled by rail union and management representatives, and Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz said he had no plans for a renewal of mediation at this time.

Otto Kerner. Kerner, who spent most of his 20 years guard service as an officer in the division, told the troops of his recent dedication of U.S. 54, from Chicago to Louisiana, as the 33rd Division 4 Final Probe Under Way to Find 2 Boy PITTSBURGH (AP) - Officials conducted a final probe into a old abandoned mine today in the search for three boys missing since Thursday. They announced their decision after a six-man rescue team emerged from the mine earlier today and reported they had discovered no clues that would help them determine whether the teenagers are in the suburban Castle Shannon mine. Everett Turner, a U.S. Bureau of Mines inspector, said exploration into the last area should take a ut eight hours. Once this is accomplished, he said, officials will have been satisfied that the mine was searched thoroughly. Use Precaution Then not in there," he added. Turner said a large pressure fan was used to clear deadly black damp gas from the area. The gas forced workers out of the mine for a while Friday night. However, they resumed the search after fans cleared the air. After about two hours, they quit for the night. Only theories exist as to the whereabouts of the boys—Robert Abbott, 15, and Danny O'Kain and Billy Burke, both 13. Their families feel they are in the mine, closed since 1938. Some local officials, though, guess the trio have left Pittsburgh, possibly on a freight train. They say the boys possibly either became frightened when they heard about the search and are afraid to return home, or else they are off on an adventure. Mo., Mem or i a 1 Highway and praised them for peacetime training effort. "In the dual role of citizen- soldier," he said in a prepared talk, "you men represent our first line of defense in times of national disaster and in times of disaster at home." The division has been undergo- summer ing. Kerner also brought a message from Gen. Walter Krueger, World War II 1st Army Commander under whom the 33rd served in the New Guinea and Luzon campaigns, and later in occupation of southern Japan. Krueger recalled the division's ordeals in the South West Pacific Area including the Morotae landing by a part of the group, and the intensity of the 33rd's northern Philippines struggle. "Landing on the Luzayah Gulf coast on Feb. 10, 1945, it faced the difficulty of advancing north into the extremely rugged mountains against violent enemy resistance," he said. "But the able conduct of the division and the valor of its members recorded after bitter fighting to clear much of the northeastern mountain area of the enemy contributed materially to the success of the Luzon cam- the report scheduled for submission to the President on July 19. That would give Kennedy three days to study the document before transmitting it to Congress along with his recommendations for disposing of the controversy. Chiefs of four unions involved in the dispute have left Washington for the weekend, although their deputies remained on call. J. E. Wolfe, chief negotiator for the railroads, planned to stay in the city to follow any developments. Hopes Are Slim There was little hope in government circles that any agreement would be reached before the July 29 deadline when another strike could occur if railroads go ahead with plans to place j6b- reducing rules into effect. "This one will go to Congress," said one government source who has been close to the negotiations. The reasoning is that the railroads are not willing to settle the bulk of the issues / unless the unions agree to a sharp reduction in the number of firemen—37,000 —aboard freight and yard locomotives. Union leaders are not willing to make this concession and neither side will move toward a compromise, the source said. settled immediately may be laid aside," the Peking statement said. "If we cannot finish our discussions in one session, several can be held, and our parties can hold further bilateral talks." With the negotiations apparently winding up, the way seemed clear for the Russians to open their meetings Monday with U.S. and British officials on a nuclear test ban.

The two men, masked and armed, broke through the wall and robbed the exchange of an estimated $40,000 Friday. Names Ambassador WASHINGTON (UPI) President Kennedy has named Howard R.

For about a year Dolnytsin was quizzed by the Central Intelligence Agency in the United States, After he requested asylum in Britain, he was flown here and interrogated. Dolnytsin is credited with providing information that led to the exposure of William John Vassal, the homosexual spy in the British Admiralty. He is reported to have given counter-intelligence agents information that pointed to Harold Philby as the man who tipped off turncoat British diplomats Guy Burgess and Donald Maclean that they were about to be arrested. Burgess and Maclean fled to Soviet Russia. In January, Philby disappeared. He is believed to be behind the Iron Curtain. Greenback Bankers Find Holdups Are Commonplace GREENBACK, Tenn.

Greenback, which got its name not from cash but a political party, has a population of 400. Consequently, strangers are noticed. "They looked suspicious to me when they walked in," Mrs. Elam said. Then began the somewhat familiar routine: the gun, the sack, the warning. Mrs. Elam and Mrs. Cleo Mills, bookkeeper, followed orders of the nervous bandits and filled the bag with cash. ** As the pair fled la a car, a teller noted the color of the license plates, and a hometown girl got the number.

The government of the United States exploits Latin America and exploits Ecuador."
