Carriers and Rail Unions Continue Bargaining Talks WASHINGTON (UPI)-Railroad industry and union representatives met through the weekend with Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz and resumed meetings today in a renewed attempt to settle the work rules dispute with collective bargaining. Sources cautioned, however, against hope for a quick settle* >ment arising from the activity Police Grill Rail Workers In Slaying HAMMOND, Ind. (UPI) — Police today grilled anyone connected with a Hammond railroad yard in a methodical check of all available clues and theories in the shooting deaths of two veteran railroadmen. Officers strongly suspect someone who is or was working for the railroad. Roy M. Bottorf, 67, Lansing, 111., and Paul A. Overstreet, 45, Hammond, were shot to death Saturday as they waited for tower clearance to begin moving their 54-car train. Employes of the yard and Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad were questioned in hopes of turning up a possible motive. Police said they suspected someone connected with the yards or the railroad because the killer would have had to have considerable knowledge about trains and their operation. The engineer and fireman were shot in the head and neck by a small-caliber automatic pistol, police said. A switchman found their bodies only minutes after he had talked to them. Four bullet casings were found in the cab of the engine and may be the only tangible link, other than the bullets in the men's bodies, between the killer and the victims. READ THE WANT ADS!

A railroad spokesman said intermittent meetings were held at Labor Department headquarters on Constitution Avenue Saturday and Sunday. The spokesman said both sides "exchanged proposals" but he did not indicate whether these contained any noteworthy concessions. Word of Caution Another industry spokesman cautioned against expecting the activity to break the impasse which now has less than four weeks to run under what probably is the industry's last postponement of the imposition of work rules that will eliminate so- called "featherbedding" jobs— and touch off a.strike. The railroads have taken the position that only legislation can solve the dispute. President Kennedy has proposed to Congress that the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) be made the arbiter but in testimony before the Senate Commerce Committee, which concluded hearings last week, labor witnesses belabored the proposal as compulsory arbitration and argued that collective bargaining still could save the day. Single Coeds Out in Cold At Illinois CHAMPAIGN, 111. (UPI) University of Illinois officials have announced that all approved housing for single undergraduate women on the Champaign-Urbana campus is filled for the semester period starting in September. "Additional permits to enter the university in September will not be issued to single undergraduate women until they have obtained approved housing," the announcement by housing officials said. However, Dean C.W. Sanford of the office of admissions and records, and Director Paul J. Dobel, housing division, said cancellations may occur. Applications from single undergraduate women will be processed until the dead line date of Aug. 26. Applicants will be informed whether they are eligible to enter, but deposits on tuition and fees will not be accepted and permits will not be issued until the applicants have obtained approved housing. Undergraduate men, graduate and married students who have not obtained housing should contact the housing division at once, Dobel said. Although university- owned housing is filled, there are available accommodations in privately owned facilities for graduate and married students and in university approved privately owned facilities for single undergraduate men. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! Scott Opposes Endorsements CHICAGO (UPI) - William J. Scott, Republican state treasurer, has proposed that GOP organizations refrain from endorsing any of the candidates for the Republican nomination for governor. In a speech Saturday Scott said "There should be no endorsement of any candidate for governor by the State Central Committee, the County Chairmen's Association or the Cook County Central Committee." He added: » r <* "The Democratic party has made a mockery of the primary process. We should welcome a decision on Candidates made by the tax paying voters." "We must not prevent the people from making the decision as to the identity of the men and women who shall represent the Republican party next November. From a free and open primary we will send out our candidates who can attract not only Republicans, but also the independents and thousands of Democrats who are sick and tired of Chicago Mayor Dick Daley's machine."

The boy, with the girls said to have substantiated his story, told authorities the three were taken to Iowa City from Newton by an acquaintance. From Iowa City they hitchhiked a ride to Knoxville in a pickup truck bound for the Knox County Fair, they said. After they surrendered to Peoria state police last Wednesday, they were returned to the Mary Davis Home here, from which their parents took them Thursday night. -Car Abandoned Their travel from Iowa to Mi nois, it subsequently developed in questioning after their return to Iowa, was in a stolen car, which was abandoned on a gravel road east of U.S. 150 about three miles south of Alpha. Sheriff Max E Jones and state troopers checked the Alpha area Saturday but were unable to locate the car, which was in Henry County and was recovered by the sheriff of that county. After checking five or six cars in Knoxville, the trio picked on one parked with the keys in it at the Francis Carlson residence, 611 S. Broad St. Claire Tabb, Knoxville police officer, pursued the car at speeds which he said reached more than 100 miles per hour at times. The youths fled from the car after it went into a ditch on a gravel road after passing through Elmwood. They remained hidden in a cornfield until about 2 p.m. Tuesday, spent Tuesday night in a barn on a farm, then told their story Wednesday to a farm resident, who notified Peoria state police headquarters.

Police Hold Two Men for Rape-Kidnaping of Woman SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP)—Police held two young men today for repeatedly raping a white Cleveland woman they found napping in a car parked along a highway. Another accused in the attack drowned trying to escape police. Two more, captured with the de fendants, were released and police | way w hile he radioed for help said they had nothing to do with the attack of the 22-year-old! woman. Prosecutor Thomas Roemer said rape charges would be filed here today against David Flournoy, 21, Mounds, 111., and Myron Taborn, 18, Cairo, 111. From Illinois Officers said Flournoy, Taborn, James Williams, 22, Cairo, who drowned, James Trawick, 19, Indianapolis, and Charles McCall, 17, Cairo, were hitchhiking Sunday along U.S. 20 three miles west of New Carlisle, Ind. They spotted Mary Helen Taylor and a companion, Donald E. Ingram 30, Cleveland, sleeping in In gram's car. Police said Trawick and McCall continued on and were not implicated. The three men seized Miss Taylor, police said, and bound and gagged Ingram with t clothesline. He was left in a corn field while attackers fled in his car. Ingram staggered to a farmhouse and notified police. Trooper Michael Rasheta Jr., 38, spotted Ingram's car in Gary 40 miles from the attack scene. He halted it and ordered five youths out at gunpoint, telling them to release Miss Taylor. Rasheta learned later the three attackers had picked up Trawick and McCall en route to Gary. Apparently, the two got into the car unaware the woman had been abducted. Jumped From Car The trooper said the hysterical woman jumped from the car. "She ran behind me and started shaking," he said. "She screamed, 'I've been raped. They threatened to kill me; they've had razors at my throat.'" Miss Taylor was taken to Methodist Hospital in Gary where who raped her, police said. Rasheta ordered the five youths physicians reported she had been raped three times. Later, in South Bend, she picked Flournoy and Taborn from a lineup as the men to lie spread-eagled on the high- Two jumped over a fence along the road, Rasheta said,. and he fired three rounds from his sawed-off riot gun Rasheta said when one of the three men lying on the road started to get up he shouted, "If you move, you're dead. I kicked one in the belly and jumped on two of them on the neck."
