WEDNESDAY, MAY 86, 1964 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS NYC Dock Workers Settle Rival Union Fight in Vote Today NEW YORK (AP) — The bitter union fight for the right to represent 25,000 dock workers reached a pprtwide vote today in a National Labor Relations Board election. Heavy police details patrolled the waterfront to prevent repetition of the intimidation and which caused pre-Christmas strong-arm tactics the results of a election to be scrapped. Last-minute claims of victory were made by spokesmen for both the International Longshoremen's Assn. (ILA) and the rival AFL-ILA. The count will start at an armory here at 8:30 p.m. and the result may be in by midnight. The NLRB assembled a staff of 191 officials from as far away as Denver to supervise the election. With feelings running high between adherents of the rival unions. Police Commissioner Francis W. H. Adams put 2,500 New York policemen on waterfront patrol. On the New Jersey side of the vast port hundreds of police were detailed on the waterfront. New Blow • The ILA, which ruled waterfront labor for decades before it was ousted from the AFL for harboring- racketeers, took another body blow on the eve of the election. Federal David N. Edelstein placed it in receivership yesterday. Edelstein appointed Raymond J. IBcully, an official of the New York State Bar Assn.. as receiver. Scully's responsibilities will end if and when the ILA raises the $50,000 needed to pay a contempt of cpurt fine imposed for iis recent strike In defiance of a federal injunction. ILA Executive Vice President Patrick J. Connolly said last night that individual members of the un- IN ERROR — For two hours this T3". S. flag flew upside down over a courthouse in Atlanta, Ga.

VENfUTEO overage size SOUD-TOf Mb \U\(0 ion had volunteered to mortgage their homes to pay the fine. Connolly said the union hoped to get the money together before the receivers actually took control today. The ILA's cash has shrunk to a $12,000 bank account, and even that has been attached by the government in a move to assure payment of the fine. The bitter waterfront campaign for members has been waged at everi-ncreasing tempo since the AFL established the AFL-ILA after ousting the ILA last fall for failure to clean out racketeering elements. The first test of strength came in an NLRB election last Dec. 22 and 23. The ILA was credited with 9,060 votes and the AFL-ILA with 7,568, and 4,399 ballots were challenged. Coercion Claimed After lengthy hearings, the election results were invalidated by the NLRB on the ground that ILA members and supporters exerted intimidation, coercion and strong- arm tactics and thus prevented a free expression of the workers' will at the polls. The NLRB then ordered today's new election. Since the ILA's decades-old contract expired last fall, neither union has been able to negotiate a contract with the New York Shipping Assn., which represents 170 shipping and stevedoring companies. U.S. Atty. Leonard P. Moore of Brooklyn asked the FBI yesterday to investigate the possibility of hookups b e t v- e e n Communist forces on the Pacific coast and some followers of Anthony (Tough Tony) Anastasia, ILA boss in Brooklyn. Moore made his request after studying a 140-page report submitted to him by the New York-New Jersey Waterfront Commission. The report dealt with contributions of $3,675 made to two aides of Anastasia by locals of Harry Bridges' left-wing International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union on the West Coast. PAGE TURK!
