Willard Wirtz says the four-year-old dispute over railroad work rules Is headed toward a compulsory solution because both the carriers and the unions are guilty of "a failure of responsibility." "There is no affirmative attempt by either side in this situation to do anything about settling it even at this hour," Wirtz said Sunday as a special presi dential panel prepared to sift the facts in the jobs tangle. "There has been at this point an apparent assumption by both parties that somebody else, the government, the Congress, whoever it ma! be, is going lo decide this," the secretary said in a televised interview. Still, Wirtz added, he hopes that "when both of these parties are looking down the gun barrel" 0"" possible congressional action, "there is going to be a real facing up to the implications of the fact that if they don't settle, Ihe prospect is something which will •weaken the whole institution of collective bargaining." Wirtz is chairman of the special committee that begins today to lay the basis for a report President Kennedy plans to send to Congress July 22 aimed at solving the rules dispute. Wirtz refused to say whether the administration would recommend compulsory arbitration. Carrier and union representatives will, be standing by as the panel meets today, ready for Questioning on specific points. Tuesday the committee will hold separate and joint sessions with the two sides, hoping to begin writing a report for Kennedy on Wednesday, The railroads have postponed until July 29 putting into effect new work rules designed to eliminate gradually about 60,000 jobs they claim are unnecessary. The five operating unions, which say the jobs are essential for safe and efficient train operations, have promised to delay strike action until lhat date. Over the weekend, Sens. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., and Wayne Morse, D-Ore., said they were opposed to legislation that would require compulsory arbitration of the dispute, Q. Does tliis imply that while there have been gains in Negro education and integration, there hasn't been much economic improvement? A. I think it demonstrates that the progress has been much too slow. It's true that the educational gap between Negroes and whites has been shrinking. Yet for the decade. 1930 to 1960, we find that the inqome gap has not narrowed at all, . Job discrimination is dramatically reflected in the poverty figures. Over one-half of our Negroes are in poverty stalus. Q. What do you consider povert.v status? A. $3,000 of family income, r,r below. By that standard, it's appalling to find that over half of our Negro families are in povety status, as against something less than one-fifth for whites. Q. Do you believe that there is any real possibility of improving Negro income without an over-all improvement in the economy? A, You are putting .your linger on the key solution to the problem of Negro unemployment and jpb discrimination — an adequate supply of jobs in the economy as n whole. When jobs are scare?, discrimination flourishes. When manpower is scarce discrimination ebbs because it becomes too costly for employers. Q, Now the administration's major proposal to increase Jobs and to stimulate growth Is tax reduc tion. Do you believe that this is part of the answer to the Ne- grps' problem? A. I think It's an essential part. A JlQ.J?llllan las cut, as it is spent and re-spent, wUl generate about J3Q blllioji to 540 billion of added output, un.4 roughly 2 to 3 million gH<UUo|)Ql jobs. Past experience tells us that this will cut the Ne- grounemployment rate by more than QflMhirtl, Q, ¥041 have been arguing that • •mw 'wW economic growth •"would heJp eliminate J« the ending discrimination would he! economic growth? A. Yes. Taking the skills an training that Negroes have toda and giving them ecnial job oppo tunlties would give us 2U per cen more gross national product. Tha adds up to $14.5 billion. That woul pay half of the country's entire ec ucational bill for a year. Q. Dr. Heller, you have picturec this tax cut as being of perhap more benefit to the Negro than Sc the country as a whole. A. That, is, proportionately, o course. Q. To summarize, are you say ing that Congress has a double barrelled job—botli of eliminating discrimination and providing a better economic climate? A. Yes. Unless there are job op< portunities at the end of the road, :he rest of the programs will be frustrated and frustrating. Soldier Killed As Car Hits Tree ST.

Elliott, ex-officio town collector, now has an additional $148.279.18 in tax receipts to distribute among Alton township taxing agencies. Final settlement on his 1963 Alton township collection of $3,255.564.68 was made today by Klliott at the Edwardsvillc office of County Treasurer George Musso. Tho collection set a new high record and has earned for tho city a 2 per cent collecting commission of 565,111.29. The various Alton township taxing bodies will share the tax money now in hand in proportion to their respective tax evies, and are to receive the 'ollowlng amounts: Alton school district, '$79,097.71; Alton city, including all ts semi - independent taxing units, $31,636.36; Madison county, $20.706; Alton township, $4,270.64; Civic Memorial Airport, $1.135.87; Wood River Township Hospital district, $9,778.05; and Godfrey fire district, $543.61. However, Civic Memorial Airport has not yet received any of its Alton township taxes, and It will receive at this time a total of $41,507.07, the treasurer said. This Iptal includes its proportionate share in the balance released by the collector's settlement effected today. For the cost of making the annual tax extensions on the Alton books Madison County will be reimbursed from the Alton collection in amount, of S7,- 511.58, which is about $400 more than its fee a year ago. The four major taxing bodies — city, schools, township and airport — were each charged $1,890 for their part of the tax extension : ee, said Elliott. Wood River lospilal district was charged, $306.18. Godfrey fire district, vith only a small area within Mton, had an extension fee of only $1.80. The total tax collection in Alon this year was $37,974 higher ban that made a year ago by he Alton collector, which svas $3,217,590. Elliott was preparing this af- ernoon to distribute among the AJton township taxing bodies the unds still in his hands." ..., -^-.^^^MuxmaO SECOND TIME STAB CITY, Ark. — Seven couples kiss on the steps of the First Baptist Church after being remarried in a mass ceremorty.

Wallace's remarks were in a statement prepared for the Senate Commerce Committee.

City Streets in Good Shape Alton's earth streets cam through last winter In unusua ly good condition, and, as a re suit, less refloating than usiia will be necessary under t h 1 year's annual mnhltehenande pro gram. Street Stipt, Lticlan Harris sat today that last winter's weathe conditions caused the snialles rtm6unt of earth street damag that ho can recalMn 11 years h charge of street maintenance. While some -general reseating with asphalt and chips Is beini done, this year's malntenence wll be largely a matter of patching and attention (o drainage arrange ments. Harris gave three' reasons tha Ihe street surfaces survived thi winter in belter shape than hi ever before has.known., "First, he qald, there were al most ho freezing and thawing cy cles 10 cause deterioration. T h weather turned cold and stayec cold, and there, was little rah al thawing periods to further soft en up the surfaces." Further, Harris said, an Im proved patching' procedure was used In last summer's malnte nance program, and this paid of with more lasting results t h a r ever before. Also contributing to the w a street surfaces withstood the winter and early spring, Harris added, was extensive attention to ditching and drainage last summer. Washing about edges of the asphalt-coated streets was minimized as a .result. Sealing and patching of,the arterial .streets, finances from motor fuel' tax funds, is .now. well advanced. About two more weeks of patching and drainage work remains to be completed, >; trp d Harris, expects, Jo; • get; remaining MFT resettling finished by end of this month. Starting in August, remaining work on. the non-arterial streets, paid- from local street funds, will be undertaken. It too will me minimal compared to other recent years, the street superintendent believes. 5.. ;i i ., Although there was heavy spring damage to Central Avenue, south of E. 4th, due to a sewer blow-out that ruined the brick pavement, there was, comparatively ,, ; little damage to the earth streets.
