Doctors Discuss PicnicFood (tlllnnlft Stflto Merilcnt Society) tfic great American Institution ol Hie sifrtiftter picnic Is enjoyed by -almost everyone— even by th* flies atid a nts. Bui a picnic sometimes dan end In sorrow, cVen tragedy, If a few simple precautions to stave off food poisoning are Ignored. In planning a picnic, remember these simple,rules: 1. Instead of njaklng the en- lire lunch at homeland keeping It In the baking hot trunk of the car until your family builds up an flppetlte^take along the sandwich Ingredients in their original wrappers and containers and make tip your picnic meal on the spot, just before mealtime. 2. If yiJur. favorite sandwich is. ham. ryou are one of many millions; But lake the ham in a Denied .can, and open just before dinner time. Ham spoils quickly at warm temperatures. Since potato salad also spoils easily, why not take the boiled polatoes, hardbolled ,eggs and mayonnaise (in Us sealed jar) and mix Ihe salad at (he 'last minute? 3. The picnic ice box is a great food saver, if properly used. But it should be a good, well-insulated box, with a light lid, and plenty of ice in it. Items stored in the ice box should be well chilled in the refrigerator in advance. 4. Stick to canned stuffs and scaled jars and bottles that can be opened just before using. Be careful about pies (cream-filled bakery goods spoil fast on hot days). Take fresh fruits for dessert. If in doubt about Ihe safely of picnic foods, just keep in mind your own kitchen practices of refrigerating those edibles (hut require it.

Rail Job - \ • Dispute Complex By JAMteS MAItUMV Amocjntcd Press Nmvs Analyst WASHINGTON (API - A tw figures and a third pair of eyes give an insight Into Ihe change in the railroad Industry and into the railroad-union dispute which stems directly from that change. The railroads argue that in by gone days, when, they depended LSlly on steam locomotives with their coal-stoked furnaces, they needed firemen far more than now when almost all trains are hauled by oil-burning Jicsel engines. In 1940 there were about 40,000 sleam locomotives but only about 800 dlescl engines. Now there are 20,000 dlesol engine units but only 112 sleam locomolives. Therefore, (he railroads say, being forced to keep about 40,000 firemen on their payrolls to ride the diesels is strictly featherbed ding. They say they could save $(iOO million a year by dropping thij 40,000 firemen. Unions say Hie jobs are needed for safe operations of the trains. Difference There's a dtstinclion between the 40,000 firemen in diesols haul ing freight cars and another 6,000 firemen riding diesels which haul passenger cars. The difference is third pair of eyes. On the freight diesel two men ride up front with the engineer: the brakeman and the fireman. The engineer, riding on the right, looks out for everything ahead on lis side. One of the other two men can watch on the left side. That's two pairs of eyes watching. The rail- •oad say there is no need _ for a third pair— meaning a fireman's — because the brakeman can watch on the left side. But on a diesel hauling passen- ;er cars, only the engineer and firemen ride up front. A 15-man commission appointed by President Eisenhower to dig into this whole railroad-union dispute—for Ihe problem involved much more than firemen— reported to President Kennedy in 1962. It agreed firemen on freight diesels aren't needed but said firemen on the passenger diesels should be kept. The railroads a'-, cepted that. But the commiss ion said far more than this. It said: The rules and agreements on jobs and working conditions sel up long ago by the unions and the railroads are out of date because of modern technol- gy which means, among other luxurious draperies CUSTOM MADE FOR T! 5HORTIE DRAPERIES . . . new and venalil*.

Recommendations So the commission recommended the unions and railroads get :ogether and through bargaining >ring the whole business of rules, bbs an working conditions up o date. It hasn't happened. The five big unions involved— 'iremen, trainmen, engineers, conductors and switchmen — >alked at the commission's pro- x>sals because all of them, not ust the firemen, would be affected, perhaps with the loss of other housands of jobs. Yet, this dilemma of increased nechanization — sometimes called automation — has cost un- ons jobs in other industries, and ias had to be faced, perhdps most notably in the case of John L. lewis' coal miners. Figures tell that story, too, Just 15 years ago 450,000 men worked n the mines. Today only 125,000 do. In those 15 years the mines secame heavily mechanized and, at the same time, coal production went down because less coal is jeing used. Still, thanks' to mechanization, Ihe average productivity of the individual miner has gone up. It's 14 tons a day, highest in the world. The railroad - union dispute dragged on, The Supreme Court •uled the railroads had the right o lay off the firemen. The unions still balked. Kennedy this spring set up a three-man board to find a solution. It didn't. Gradual It proposed a gradual method [or laying off the 40,000 firemen. The unions wouldn't bend. The railroads decided to start laying oil Thursday. If they tried, the unions said, there would be a nationwide strike at once. Last week Secretary of Labor W. Willard WJrtz, trying to head off the shutdown, suggested in effect that the two sides agree to accept binding arbitration. On Sunday the railroads accepted but the unions rejected. Kennedy, with the Mrike due Thursday, Tuesday made a final effort to stop It, He suggested the t\vo sides let Supreme Court Ji tico Arthur J. Goldberg examine the problem and give a decision by October. This, too, woulel be binding arbi tration, which Is what the unions Imve consistently opposed. E Kennedy can't stand by and see the country injured by a nation wide rail strike, A' further rejection by the union almost certainly would compel him to go to Congress and ask for a law forcing the unions to accept compulsory arbitration •>? giving the government power f-o seize the railroads and force settlement. : May Seek Ouster of Meredith OXFORD, Miss. (AP)—A four- man committee of the Mississippi State College Board meets today to discuss whether to ask federal courl permission to expel James H. Meredith from the University of Mississippi because of his public statements. The committee planned a closed session on the matter. There was little likelihood members would discuss the situation following their meeting on the Ole Miss campus. Meredith, the 30-year-old Negro who pioneered desegregation at Ole Miss meanwhile took the first of his two final exams for the first summer school session. The proposed action against Meredith was disclosed in Jackson by Gov. Ross Barnett at a news conference Tuesday. There had been repeated rumors the board was under heavy pressure from segregationists and some Ole Miss alumni to try to prevent Meredith from becoming a graduate of the 114-year-old institution in August. Barnett, a graduate of the Ole Miss Law School who faces criminal contempt proceedings in the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at New Orleans for his efforts to block Meredith's enrollment, said board'members would determine f Meredith's recent statements violated a university directive against inflammatory remarks. Meredith declined to discuss the situation with newsmen. Barnett read a statement by Tom Tubb, a West Point attorney who is chairman of the State College Board. "We have discussed the idea of petitioning the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals for permission to expel Meredith," it said in part. Tubb, one of the four committee members meeting today, said Meredith had been severely reprimanded by dean of students L. L. Love for remarks in connection with the ambush slaying last month of civil rights leader Medgar W. Evers. "Meredith apologized and agreed not to issue anymore stalements without clearing them iVith Dean Love," the Tubb statement said. 'Meredith's actions since he became a studenl have proved our theories he was more interested n a springboard for vocal utler- ance than an education," Tubb said. Since saying the blame for the death of Evers "clearly rests with governors of the Southern states and their defiant and provocative actions," Meredith has becom« involved in a dispute with leaders ol the National Association for Ihe Advancement of Colored People. He called leadership of ihe NAACP youlh movement foolish last week at the Chicago convention of the civil rights organ!- /alion. NAACP Executive Secretary Roy Wilkins attacked Meredith for the statement and also criticized him for using the term burr head" In his speech. Meredith said he was appalled by his reception at the meeting. WalkerReady For Flight In X15 Plane EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP)—"I'm ready when the plane's ready."

Telegraph Want Ads "CLICK" Dirksen Says GOP in Dark on Moscow Trip n.V JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate It-publican Leader Everett M. j Dirksen says the Kennedy adrnin- stration has left GOP members of Congress In the dark about W. Averell Harriman's nuclear mission to Moscow. As a result, Dirksen said in an nterview, congressional Republicans have adopted a wait-and-see ittitude toward nuclear test ban negotiations with the Russians. Harriman, who met with Pvesi- lent Kennedy and Secretary of Itate Dean Rusk at the White louse Tuesday, lakes off lale today on the first leg of a journey o Moscow for a high-level nego- lations on a possible atmospheric esl ban. He will slop in London or talks with Lord Hailsham, vho will represcnl the British at he Moscow meeting. Dirksen said there had been no atlempt made by the White House o fill any Republicans in on the outline of any proposals Harriman may make. Neilher, the II- inoisan said, was there any invi- alion for any Republican lo accompany Harriman. "We have been left in the dark ibout the adminlslralion's plans," Dirksen said. "We don't know enough about what is contemplated to form any judgment on it. We will just have to wait and sec vhat develops." In the past. Dirksen and House Republican Leader Charles A. Halleck of Indiana have opposed test moratoriums because they said Ihe Russians had bruken them before and would do so again. Dirksen indicated that the GOP leaders would be wary of any Easl-West nonaggression pad such as Soviet Premier Khrush- ichev suggested linking with any est ben agreement Sen. • Hubert H. Humphrey of Minnesota, the assistant Senate Democratic leader, told reporters hat there is feeling within the administration lhat Khrushchev's proposal for a curb on atmospheric lesting "is more lhan a propaganda move."
