Rail Merger Discussions Three-Way By ROGER I'ANE Al' Business News Writer NEW YORK (AP)—A financia storm is brewing that savors o knock-down, drag-out fights among the legendary railroad barons of 75 years ago. It blew up almost overnight this week in the style of epic battles waged by the Hills, Vanderbilts, Harrimans and Jay Gould before Ihe turn of the century. The prize: the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad, a midconlinent line with strategic importance to Western railroads because of its access to Chicago. The adversaries: the rich, storied Union Pacific Railroad, a kind of Golaith in present circumstances, and the poor-relation Chi- to bits" row or white" rights. Sen. Jacob K. Javits of New York spoke out in the Senate Friday against what he said would be "a mortal threat to my party and a very serious threat to the :ountry if the Republican party should go lily white." In San Francisco, Sen. Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania told the Young Republican National Federation that "with misplaced /eal and unduly violent clashes of opinion, we can cripple ourselves •deviously. . .and lose the next election." Scott also put into the Congressional Record a statement in which he said he did not know of a single "responsible Republican leader who is not morally com mitted to the fundamental principle of equal rights for all Ameri cans, regardless of race." These statements reflected ob viously mounting fears by the party's liberals, represented Javits, and its moderates, repre sented by Scott, that adherents o conservative Sen. Barry M. Gold water, R-Ariz., may be steering the Republican elephant on trails, they don't want to travel. Javits said it was one thing foi a "leading candidate" for the 19G- GOP presidential nomination- meaning Goldwater—to oppose the central provision of Presideu Kennedy's civil rights program, i proposal to enforce racial deseg rogation on privately owned firm? serving the public. But it was quite another thing Javits said, for Ihe party of Abra ham Lincoln to permit itself to b tagged as in any way segrega lionist. He said no civil rights pro gram is going to be enacted with ul Republican support.

The shopping center was situated on U.S. 51, for which there was talk of improvements. II was expected, also, that Interstate 80 would be built beside it. Now, old U.S. 51 dead ends close by, but no access route to Midway Pla/a. Interstate 80 had been paved to within a mile of the shopping center, but it will come no closer, even when extended to the west. Midway Pla/a Building Corp., a group of La Salle-Peru businessmen headed by Don Chonowski, a construction and painting contractor, undertook the venture. Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Co. underwrote part of its cost. Shortly after the center opened, tenants' business began to drop off.
