Goldwater lists position on 22 major issues W/VSHINGTON (UPI) - Republican presidential aspirant Barry Goldwater has distrib- buted 22 "position papers", to friends and supporters across the nation, apparently to clarify his views on election issues. The subjects range from Cuba to Social Security and "extremism" and the view that "the key to racial and religious tolerance lies not in laws alone but, ultimately, in the hearts of • men." Goldwatcr's civil rights paper called for a "sharp distmction" between civil rights guaranteed under the Constitution and "rights of association that are basically moral issues." He said the 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution guarantee civil rights and should be rigorously enforced. If more authority is needed for school desegregation, he said, "We should write a law that is tightly drawn—that can be used with precision, lilie a rifle, not a shotgun." "No matter how we try," he said, "we cannot pass a law that will malje you like me or me Uke you. I believe individual actions by every American will elimmate the stigma of discrimination from our so ciety." LOS ANGELES (UPI) -Sen.

Invasion of privacy Thrill killer Leopold wins $1.4 million suit 54 39 .35 56 50 T 63 50 76 39 21 9 82 54 65 35 82 71 82 62 92 66 95 54 63 47 58 39 .32 84 59 103 68 88 52 75 57 75 50 49 37 70 39 CHICAGO (UPI) — Nathan Leopold, the brilliant "thrill killer" who helped commit one of the most sensafional crimes of the century, Wednesday won a judgment in a $1.4 million invasion of privacy suit Judge Thomas E. HuczynsK ordered a jury hearing to determine the precise amount of damages to be awarded Leopold. Leopold's damage suit names 57 persons connected with the best selling novel "Compulsion" and the motion picture and stage play based upon the novel Included were author Meyer Levin, publishers Simon and Schuster and Daryl F. Zanuck Productions. Levin was one of a number of prominent persons who vigorously supported L e 0 p o I d's plea for commutation of his prison sentence for his part in the 1924 slaying of Bobby Franks, son of a Chicago millionaire. Leopold, 59, now is a baldish medical technician self-described as "a fat, middle-aged, throughly ordinary man." He has lived in Puerto Rico since his release from prison in 1958. His $1,405,000 damage suit alleges that the defendants took "the name, likeness and personality of Leopold and conver- safion of same for their profit and gam." The suit charges Levin with fictionalizing family scenes and conversations. Levin, who currently resides in Israel, supported Leopold's bid'for freedom by asking the Illinois Pardon and Parole Board to permit the slayer "who has been a symbol of crime to become a greatei: symbol of correcUon." Leopold's case also was supported by poet Carl Sandburg, mys tery writer Erie Stanley Gardner, Puerto Rican Gov. Luis Munoz Marin and others. It was in the spring of 1924 when Leopold and his Univer sity of CHiicago classmate Richard Loeb abducted 14-year-old Bobby Franks, pounded a chis el into his head and demanded $10,000 ransom in a ruthless, reasonless experiment with the "perfect crime." Famed criminal attorney (Harence Darrow defended the two youths in court, where the state's attorney called them "rattlesnakes." Loeb and Leopold escaped the gallows because of Darrow's impassioned defense. Loeb died in prison, stabbed to death by another inmate, but Leopold became a model of rehabilitation. He won a master's degree through correspondence courses! learned 26 languages, took part in Malaria experiments as a human guinea pig and set up an educational program for other convicts. After his parole, he married a wealthy Puerto Rican widow] and settled down in the Caribbean island. "AH I want to do is forget and be forgotten," he said. Southerners claim gains in Rights bill battle WASHINGTON (UPI)-South- em senators expressed confidence today that they are making progress agamst the "veil of emotional hysteria" sur- roundmg the civil rights bill in the Senate. They voiced doubt after a caucus that there will he any voting within the next week on possible changes in the House- passed bill. Sen. Richard Russell, D-Ga., leader of the Senate Dixie Democratic bloc, said after the caucus: "I think we are making slow hut sure progress in piercing the veil of emotional hysteria which the proponents liave thrown up aromiid this bill." There has been speculation that there might Ije votes on amendments withm the Senate next week, but Russell said he doubted it. Oirksen Plans Strategy As the Senate went into an other early-to-iate session on the rights debate. Republican Leader Everett M. Durksen planned to introduce all but one of his amendments to the fau: employment section of the measiure. He said in an interview he was not much concerned about the fear of some GOP liberals that the Republicans would be in a better position if Dirksen's amendments were sot the first to be voted on. Some Republican senators would like to see the first votes to come on Southern changes. They would prefer to.jockey the southern Democratic opponents of the bill into offering a restrictive amendment which could be defeated so that the GOP will not be charged with making the first attack on the measure. Hence liberal Republicans would like to see Dirksen postpone a test on his most controversial fair employment amendmraits. The bill bans racial discrimination in voting, employment, unions, public accommodations, education and use of federal funds. Dirksen's two most disputed amendments relate to the au- Uiority to be given a Fau- Employment Practices Commission (FEPC) set up under the bill. The Illinois Republican wants state FEPC agencies to have prior claim on job discrimination cases, at least for six months. He would also allow only aggrieved workers, rather than the federal FEPC, to file suits. Liberal Republicans so far have resisted both of these proposals as too strong. bargaining steps up WASHINGTON (UPI - Federal mediators today called for day and night sessions beginning immediately in a crash effort to reach an agreement this weekend In the deadlocked rail dispute.

But he declined again to assess the prospects for an agreement The representatives of the railroads and the five unions in volvcd were given the morning from mediation sessions so they could caucus and review their positions. Reedy said the negotiators, led by Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz, would now make a major effort to get each sides to adopt a more flexible position a strike settlement could be reached.
