(AP Wirephoto) WeaiherForecast Saved Self When He Pulled Coupling Pin James Winslow, Betlialto switch man injured when caught betweei a moving train and freight cars on a siding, near the foot o Plum Street, Friday afternoon may have saved himself worse in Jury by pulling a coupling pin and stopping the train. Police Who investigated at the accident Scene were told that the point where Winslow was injured was 17 cars behind the locomotive and out of view of those in the engine cab. Suddenly the train stopped, and Harriman Flies Home With Treaty By REINHOLD ENSZ MOSCOW (AP) — U.S. Undersecretary of State W. Averell Harriman left Moscow today with the three-power treaty for a partial ban on nuclear tests in his pocket. Th<5 chief American negotiator at trie "U.Si-British-Soviet conference here took off aat 10127 a.m. He. was scheduled to arrive in United States today to report to President Kennedy who is spending the weekend at the summer White House near Hyannis Port, Mass. Harriman and the British negotiator, Science Minister Lord Hailsham dined with Soviet Premier Khrushchev Friday night amid, signs of a developing thaw in East-West relations. Shortly after Harriman's departure in an Army 707 jet, a Royal Air Force Comet left with Britain's Lord Hailsham and his party. The party was pleased with the conference results and pleased with the dinner Friday night. "It was a very jovial dinner,' said Lord Hailsham. "Not very much business was done." Harriman said his talk with Khrushchev Friday was very good, but declined to go into details. He said earlier he would request Khrushchev's cooperation in settling the situation in Laos. Westerners who have contacts with Soviets say day-to-day relations during the test ban conference became considerably warmer when it was apparent that the Kremlin wanted the negotiations to be successful, Several Western diplomats said they were invited to the homes of Soviet officials, something that almost never happens. But some Western diplomats have warned that Premier Khrushchev may be hiding a few tricks, especially in his proposed nonaggression pact. They argued that Khrushchev could make effective use of the pact if—and when—he decides to give Communist East Germany power over the Western supply routes to West Berlin. Harriman and Hailsham will report to President Kennedy and Prime Minister Harold Macmillan on what they believe Klirushchev is thinking. They got the final ./Items for their reports at a dinner ^ given for them Friday night by Khrushchev, Neither Harriman, underscore tary of slate for political affairs, nor Hailsham, British ministei for sctence, would reveal what Khrushchev told them. But the Soviet Premier gave a clue to his thinking in an interview published by the newspapers IzVestia and Pravda. Khrushchev began by hailing the proposed partial ban on nu nlear testing) then said: "It is necessary to settle the questior ,QJI which liquidation of intema tlonal tension primarily depends— the question of a German peace Wttlement." He set no deadlines Vfom the Soviet view the tes taw conference apparently was a j>WWdf't9 negotiations on a non aggrfuwien pact between the Norti Attpttc ,Waty<Qifanimation and *itr GomroUnUt —•-'—— * u ~ the when the mishap was investigated, police were informed, it was found that Winslow had apparently jerked the lever to uncouple the moving cars. This, in turn broke the air-hose connection and automatically set the brakes to stop the train. Winslow remained a patient in St. Joseph's Hospital today where his condition was reported as satisfactory. Neivcomers May Vote For President SPRINGFIELD, HI.

State May Purchase Rail Right-of-Way CHICAGO (AP) — A state official has announced tentative plans to purchase part of the abandoned North Shore Railway right-of-way for the start of an industial highway linking Illinois communities on' Lake Michigan's western shore. Francis S. Lorenz, state treasurer, announced Friday that the state is negotiating with owners of the defunct line for a portion of the right-of-way in Lake County. Meanwhile, Wisconsin's new transit" authority met in Madison to consider proposals to acquire portions of the right-of-way in the Racine-Kenosha area. The property of the Chicago-to- Mihvaukee electric line, abandoned earlier this year with Interstate Commerce Commission approval, is being liquidated in a salvage operation. Lorenz said the railroad property sought for highway use is south of Waukegan in the Llbertyville area. Eventually, Lorenz said, the industrial highway would serve the ireat Lakes Naval Training Center, Waukegan and the Wisconsin cities of Racine, Kenosha and Milwaukee. He said the design contemplated is a control!ed-access expressway. The transit authority meeting in Madison indicated that Wisconsin cities and countes that would be involved in any land purchases are far from agreement. Mom Againttt On 2 Fronts WASHINGTON (AP) - Will! waiting for Congress to act on II far-reaching civil rights progran tho Kennedy administration ha moved to deal with racial discrin (nation on two specific fronts. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara announced plans t combal discrimination against Ne gro servicemen and their families and Secretary of Labor W. \Vi lard Wirtz outlined new standnrc designed to ensure equal opportu nily in worker apprenticeship pro grams. Both actions came Frldaj McNamnra said base commant efs may declare off limits an area where Negro servicemen an their families are subjected t 'relentless discrimination." The commanders first must fie approval of Ihe secretary of th service concerned, McNamara voiced the hope tha such sanctions never will have t be used. The threat of ruling cer'ai areas off limits to all troops coul be a powerful economic \vea)»o against segregation and discrim nation in cities and towns that de pend heavily on military payrolls McNamara made the announce ment in reporting to Presiden Kennedy the steps which hav been taken on recommendation made by the President's Comnil tee on Equal Opportunity In th Armed Forces. McNamara also asked the mil tary services to give him a re port by Aug. 15 on their plans to combatting discrimination, and h authorized the creation of the pos of assistant secretary of defens for civil rights to oversee military anti-discrimination programs. A Labor Department spokesma said the apprenticeship training standards will affect about 9,00 ocal programs involving approxi mately 150,000 apprentices. Wirtz said federal certification )f local apprenticeship programs vill be withheld unless the pro grams meet the standards de igned to put them on a "com iletely non-discriminatory basis.' The regulations bar discrimina- ion in selection of apprentices n the training program and in he employment to which the program is related. Wirtz said the new standards vere formulated in response to e irective from President Kenne y, who also asked a review o ederal construction programs to revent any racial discrimination iVitz said a plan is being worked Kit to implement that part of the lirective. The Senate Commerce Commit ce prepared for at least one more full week of hearings on the 'resident's bill to outlaw segre ;ation in hotels, restaurants and ther public accommodations.

The action came at a meetin Friday In Chicago at which th committee also named 10 nottl ness for a House rcdislrictin commission. Among the nominees if forme Gov. William G. Stralton. Five of the Republican nom nces and five from a similar lif still to be made up by Democrat will be chosen by Kerner, a Den ocrat. for the ID-member redis trictlng commission. Victor L. Smith of Robinson GOP slate chairman, said a lega challenge of the governor's vet of the General Assembly's rema proposal will be held "in abej ance." T h e Republican committee however, sent a letter to Kerne urging quick action in naming th commission and reminding hin that Republicans still feel hi veto is legally questionable. "We believe the orderly an proper way to resolve the man problems created by your pu ported veto is to acquiesce t your request for 10 RepUblica nominees without in any way con ceding the validity or legality o any of your acts," the letter said If the commission fails to dra\ new legislative boundaries wtthi foui' months, the 177 House mem bers will be elected at-large. Tliis, Smith said, would resul in over 400 names ori the 1964 Republican ballot. One suit, by State Rep. Gal Williams, R-Murphysboro, wa dismissed in a Sangamon County !ircuit Court and is now on ap peal. It asks an injunction re straining Kerner from appointing a commission. In selecting the 10 nominees he state committee took nine rol calls after studying slates from Cook County and downstate cau- causes. On the list from downstate are Stratton and Edward Jenison 'aris publisher and former con gressman; Charles Marrow, gen eral manager of the Galesburg Register-Mail; David Hunter Jr. Rockford lawyer, and Paul W Sommer, a Peoria investmenl specialist. From Cook County are Charlei Barr, Rich Township, a forrnei Standard Oil Co. executive; Fred erick Gillies, retired chairman o Acme Steel Co.; Eldon Martin, a Vilmette lawyer; Michael Con nelly, Chicago, 8th Ward Repub ican chairman, and Fred G.

MARTIN WASHINGTON (AP)-The na- ion's farmers are not as bad ofl s many people think, says an nvestment concern, the Value ,ine. In its latest economic and in- estment survey, the concerr ays that if farmers were hare p they would not have rejectee ic Kennedy administration's new vheat control plan—offering rela- vely high prices supports—at a May referendum. It distinguished, ' however, be- ween large and small farms Those who operate large arms are doing well; those with -ery small farms, on the other ,and, are not so fortunate. But the alter group is moving out of arming in large numbers, thus mproving the over-all position o he farmers who remain," the report states. The report says 1963 farm in :ome is likely to be about th< same as last year. The Agricul ure Department has said the teal may be down, but that the per farm average will be about he same as in 1962. "The Value Line survey be ieves that the future for fanners s consistently improving. Farms are getting larger; administration more businesslike, and farm equipment more efficient... a present the Value Line survey suggests that agricultural equipment stocks are principally at- ructlve as long-term invest nents," •It is conceivable that govern nent price supports are a thing if the past and that all farm production will be geared to the supply and demand of a free market," it predicts, WASHINGTON (AP) - Nine per cent more feeder and stock >r cattle were shipping into eight Midwestern corn belt states dur- ig June than in the lake month ast year.

Trend Totvard Negotiation Chicago Committee Formed to Seek More Jobs for Negroes CHICAGO (AP) — A trend to- vard negotiation — rather than demonstration —- stood out today n Chicago's race relations. As the latest step in that direc- ion, a biracial committee Was set up Friday to try to get more obs for Negi'oes. Judge James B. Parsons of the U.S. District Court, a Negro, is chairman of the group of business and professional men. The committee — listed by spokesmen as the first of its kind n the nation—plans to concern tself largely with companies and M-ojects which receive federal contracts, grants and loans. But it also plans to deal with other employers. The committee, which has no official footing, aims to seek voluntary Compliance with President Kennedy's executive order for strict enforcement of non-discrim- nation clauses in federal government contracts with private industry. Among its goals: Assignment of more Negro 'ouths to apprentice training in rade schools in certain construc- ion crafts. Special training institutes to ipeed the development of Negroes in certain skills. The committee will depend on uggestion and negotiation. There have been no major dem- instrations in Chicago in recent lays while the trend toward ne- ;otiation developed. The focal point of demonstra- ions earlier this month was the Chicago Board of Education, vhere the Congress of Racial Squality put on a sit-in in the of- fices and rallies iii the street. But CORE leaders and Clair M. Roddewig, president of the board, have agreed to hold an open meeting'Tuesday to discuss CORE's proposals for an increased mixing of races in Chicago's public schools. CORE has served notice there will be no more demonstrations before the meeting, and has expressed a hope there will be no reason for any after the session. The Coordinating Council of Community Organizations (CCCO), an alliance of 16 Chicago civil rights groups, has decided to put the accent oh negotiations, but it did not rule out demonstrations. Edward Marciniak, head of the Chicago Commission on Human Relations, said wade-ins by groups o£ 15 to 20 Negroes have been going on at beaches all summer. But nobody has paid much attention to them. Crowds gathered at midweek near a home in a South Side neighborhood after the house had been sold to a Negro family. But police at the Kensington station reported Friday that all was quiet on that front and only two officers were on duty. "I think," Marciniak told a reporter, "the community is settling down."

Dogtown (Continued from Pngo 1) out financial means to comply. Alderman . Bowman, however, pointed out another possible angle of the East End Place situation. , When the Berm highway Is built," he said, "right-of-way in East End Pluce may Imve to be acquired by the state and dwellings removed. Why pay twice?" Al the office of Shepparcl, Morgan & Schwaab, the city's consulting engineers, 'it wus said to- daw thai the proposed Berm high- Way to be built by the state would not go through East End Pluce but might ultimately have a connection through East End Place under a city motor fuel tax project. 'Already," Bowman continued, $37,000 has been expended on the Dogtown clearance project and the whole area isn't worth that much. People of Alton should be glad they had eight aldermen who could see past the. end of their noses and vote down the urban renewal project." His resolution will go to the next council meeting, Aug. 14 and under regular procedure would be referred, as new business, to an appropriate committee for review and a recommendation.
