Ford Strike Is Settled BULLETIN CHICAGO (AP)-Settlement of a strike in the Chicago Heights Ford Motor Co. plant which idled more than 30,000 workers in five states was announced jointly today by the company and the United Auto Workers Union. GolesburgRegister-Moil, Gqtesburg, III. Friday, Aug, 23, 1963 5 The strike of 3,750 UAW members of the Chicago Heights stamping plant which began Aug. 15 was resolved by settlement of all 74 grievances which were the cause of the walkout, the officials said. Local 588 of the union agreed to stop picketing immediately and preparations were begun at once for reopening of the closed plant which supplies body panels for all Ford passenger except Lincoln Continentals. Because stampings from the Chicago Heights plant are used in other plants of the Ford system, layoffs and production curtailment affected 21 other Ford plants. The settlement was reported by M.M. Cummins, Ford's director of labor relations, and by Ray Bannan, the UAW's Ford department director, and Robert W. Johnston, director of UAW's Chicago region. Study Made On Livestock Mart Delays CHAMPAIGN, 111. (UPI) — A University of Illinois economist reports that postponing actions of farmers in getting livestock to market affects market receipts even after the delay ends. L. H. Simerl said a study of the market statistics for 1962 showed there were some "quick" sales in August, but a substantial number of livestock sales was delayed from September to October and even into November. The marketing delay was caused for several reasons, including withholding actions by organized form groups (NFO) and reduced marketings by farmers following periods of low receipts for livestock. Cites Hog Prices "This delay seems to have raised prices moderately in September and then depressed them in the following two months," Simerl said. Hog prices, for example, went up 54 cents in September although they normally dip about 40 cents because of reduced marketings in September. Increased hog marketing in October and November cut prices by $1.46, compared with an average decline of 87 cents. Prices were off an additional 46 cents in November, Simerl said. Postponement of cattle market­ ings in September was small but the reduction of marketings helped push the average price to $29.85, compared with prices of $25.25 at Chicago for choice steers in- August. Average Slips With increased receipts in October, the average price slipped only to $29.50 and then went up to $30.13 in November, Simerl said. He said the price-raising effects of reduced livestock marketings in September of cattle was less than might have been expected. One reason was that grocery stores and restaurants featured substitute foods when beef and pork became uncertain. Youth Program HOUSTON, Tex.

Federal Court Postpones Canton Man's Execution CHICAGO (UPI) - Convicted rape-slayer Lloyd E. Miller has won a reprieve from his date with the electric chair. A federal judge Thursday ended a frantic week of legal appeals by the former Canton cab driver's attorneys and granted Miller an indefinite stay of execution. Miller was scheduled to die in the electric chair at Stateville Prison at 12:01 a.m. today. Judge Bernard M. Decker assigned no time limit for the postponement but his decision meant the condemned man could not die before Sept. 9 when the Supreme Court is scheduled to meet and set a hearing on his attorney's petition for a writ of habeas corpus. When Miller received news of the stay he told chaplain Albert Sorenson, "It pays to have faith and trust in the Lord." Decker said a decision on Mil­ ler would have to wait until Federal Judge Sam Perry, for whom Decker is substituting, returned Sept. 9. "With a man's life at stake," Decker said, "I should not as an emergency judge pass on the merits on the basis of what we have heard here in the last hour. I have some tentative conclusions but I don't think in a matter of this moment, I should pass on the legal merits of this petition." Earlier in the day, Illinois Supreme Court Justice Walter V. Schaefer rejected a plea for a stay. Leighlon, who has contended the state was going to "execute an innocent man." called Decker's decision "a victory for justice." Convicted in 1956 Miller, 36, was convicted in 1956 for the 1955 rape and slaying of 8-year-old Janice May in Canton. He first confessed the slaying, then denied it. Miller's attorneys said foiu* persons who did not testify at Miller's trial saw him in his room a half hour before the girl's body was found. The attorneys contended no investigation was made of an escaped mental patient from the Peoria State Hospital who was in Canton about the time of the slaying. His attorneys said a druggist cfluld testify that he was filling a prescription for Miller at the time the slayer was disposing of his blood-stained clothing. Leighton said the confession used at Miller's trial was false and "no different than using perjury to obtain a conviction." Before Miller's reprieve, electricians had been checking out the electric chair at the prison. It has not been used for 14 years.
