Page 16 Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard, Friday, July 18, 1975 More Rail Talks Planned WASHINGTON (UPI) - Federal mediators called more talks today with negotiators for the nation's railways and a 117,000-member union which, plans to strike July 28 if no contract settlement is reached. Marathon bargaining broke down Thursday. Management and union representatives traded bitter remarks and an earlier atmosphere of optimism was destroyed. "There will be a strike," C;L. Dennis, president of the 117,000-member Brotherhood of Railway and Airline Clerks, declared after a 19-hour negotiating session. However, Dennis declined to call the walkout for Monday, when the union legally can strike. Instead he set a new deadline of July 28. • W.J. Usery Jr., the chief federal . mediator, who scheduled more meetings with both sides, said, "I still think there is a very good possibility to reach an agreement." Dennis said railroad operators were "grossly irresponsible," and expecting "Congress will bail them out." William H. Dempsey, chief negotiator for the National Railway Labor Conference, said "the responsibility for .the threatened railroad strike rests entirely with BRAG." Meanwhile, both sides in the Postal Service negotiations, affecting 600,000 employes, said they were prepared to . meet continuously to avoid any disruption in mail service when the workers' two-year contract expires at midnight Sunday. In other labor activity, a brief strike by pilots against Northwest Airlines, where contract talks have been dragging on for more than a year, was suspended Thursday morning after "significant" PROGRESS was reported in contract talks. The l^ihour walkout was the third pilots' strike against Northwest since 1970. J! Bruce Johnston, chief negotiator for the nation's big 10 steel producers Ford Not Concerned \ About Reagan'sCampaign WASHINGTON (UPI) - Word from the White House is that Ronald Reagan doesn't scare President Ford very much. A White House official says he is more concerned about Ford winning the November 1976 presidential election than about beating the former California governor for the Republican nomination.' The official shook, his head no when asked if Reagan was feared. <• He said Ford's men see no reason not to take Reagan at his word: that he has not yet made up his mind whether to seek the GOP nomination, that he may not decide until year's end and that in no way does he want to be vice president. • According to his aide in the White House, Ford believes in running "flat out." In other words, Ford believes in using a steamroller no matter if his foe is a giant or a gnat. Reagan seems to be classed somewhere between a giant and a gnat. The President's men are confident of their man and his chances. The official said Ford has moved carefully in setting up machinery for 1976. '; In his December 1974 reorganization of the White House staff, Ford named nine men - including assistant Donald. Rumsfeld, counselor Robert Hartmann and counselor Philip Miss South Carolina Fries $ 1 Million Suit Against Magazine COLUMBIA, S.C. (UPI)— Cheryl Von Lehe, Miss South Carolina 1974, has filed a $1 million suit against Golf Magazine charging unauthorized use of a photograph* of her. In the suit filed Thursday in U.S. District Court, Miss Von Lehe said Golf Magazine, published in Norwich, Conn., used a picture of her in a two- piece bathing suit in its January issue of the magazine without her knowledge • or consent. She said the picture was used in an advertisement for golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area of the state,. Miss Von Lehe gave up her title last Saturday during the annual state pageant in Greenville. Buchen - as his senior advisers. Now, for the race, a 10th senior aide has been grease-penciled onto the chart. The tenth man is Georgian Howard "Bo" Callaway, the former Army secretary named to head Ford's election committee. The White House official says Callaway - without White House office space or being on the public payroll -will operate as do his fellow nine senior advisers to the President. Callaway can see Ford whenever he wants. He can telephone Rumsfeld, Hartmann, Buchen or anyone else in the White House. Of course, it will be to Rumsfeld that Callaway will go to make an appointment to see Ford, and to Rumsfeld that will go any working papers. Rumsfeld remains the most equal of the 10 equals. The White House official insisted Callaway's post means no lessening in the position of political adviser Hartmann. The official says Hartmann will continue as a key political maestro. , It will .be his job to link Ford to the Republican National Committee. It will continue to be Hartmann whom Republican state chairmen will telephone to get in a word in the house of power. ; SSSra^^^ «% • I Our Home ...

Douglas St. Phone 233-6161 during forthcoming contract talks with the United Steelworkers of America, said a rail walkout would be "extremely harmful." Government economists have warned a rail walkout would damage the nation's economic recovery from recession. BRAC has refused a pattern settlement calling for nearly 41 per cent increases in wage and fringe benefits over three years - the same offer accepted by eight other rail unions. The clerks' union sought earlier wage increases, a cost-of-living adjustment in the last six months of the contract and provisions involving job security and union coverage. Sen. Birch Bayh Will Decide Soon His Plan For 1976 WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Birch Bayh said today he will decide within a "few weeks" whether to move into the already crowded field of candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination. "Time is a rather critical factor right now," Bayh said. The Indiana senator said he would have to make his decision "between now and fall." Bayh, 47, a three-term senator who won re-election last year, announced for the nomination in 1972 but then abruptly withdrew when his wife Marvella underwent cancer surgergy. She is now .fully recovered. Bensenville Boy, 16, Drowns In Gravel Pit Near Bluffs City BLUFFS CITY, III.
