Johnson spent 75 minutes in talks with Premier Tage Erlander today and then told newsmen: "It was an excellent meeting." ; The two statesmen, who clearly have developed personal bonds of friendship, ranged over the international scene in a private session. Johnson told a news conference ill his hotel suite: "We had a useful and instructive meeting between friendly representatives of friendly governments. It was not a negotiating meeting, but we spoke frankly about the world's economic and political problems."

If the motion Is not granted, Williams' petition would not be heard until the November term. Kerner, who vetoed a Republican-sponsored reapportio n m e n t bill following the 1963 General Assembly, has appointed a special 10-man commission to redraw House districts. The commission has until Dec. 14 to accomplish the task. Williams contends that the reapportionment measure was not a bill but a legislative enactment and that Kerner had no right to veto it. He is appealing his case from the Sangamon County Circuit Court. In a July ruling, Circuit Judge DeWitt S. Crow said no convincing proof was offered to support Williams' contention that the legislature has sole authority to reapportion the House. Atty. Gen. William G. Clark, who defended Kerner in the suit, said the governor's role in the legislative process gives him the power to approve or veto any bill. Kerner said he vetoed the measure because it represented an un fair reapportionment from a population standpoint, Mayor Tries For Soothing Of Tensions ', CHICAGO (UPD-Mayor Richard J. Daley tried today to soothe the racial tensions which have touched off demonstrations, sil-ins and arrests at Chicago public Schools. !

' The protests and demonstrations were not as militant as Wednesday, when 15 persons were arrested. But civil rights leaders did not back down from threats of a year-long boycott of the public schools if their demands are not inet. \ Daley scheduled meetings with the integration leaders and told a news conference the peaceful nature of today's demonstrations indicated "a hopeful situation." .; "The important thing is that we are all interested in the child," he said. "These problems can be worked out through negotiation and conference—not to the satisfaction of everyone—but they can be worked out." Demonstrations took the form of picketing at the Guggenheim School on the South Side and a "sit-in" at the North Side Ogden School by three Negro children.
