, SEPTfcMBER 26,1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH T»AO£ SEVEN Grain Ship To be Sent To Chicago TORONTO (AP> - John D. Lettch said Wednesday that Upper Lakes Shipping, Ltd., will send a grain ship Into Chicago Monday following a federal court ruling that a longshoremen's union will be .fined $3,000 a day if it boycotts it. Leitch, president of the shipping firm, said the ship, probably the Ericsson, likely would remain In Chicago if the union refused to load it. "This will depend on whether the judge takes firm action," he said. "If he decides to enforce the fine, we'll probably leave it there." Leitch said, however, his firm is not trying to empty the pocketbook of Local 418 of the International Longshoremen's Union, AFL-CIO, which refused to load the Upper Lakes ship Howard L. Shaw from mid-April until it left Chicago last week. "We think they might load now," Leitch said. "I think the is•ties are becoming more clear and maybe these people will begin to realize they haven't been told the full truth about this matter." Leitch said he had talked to his Chicago lawyer, Paul Flaherty, and had beeh advised to send in a ship. The ruling was made Tuesday by Judge James B. Parsons, who froze at $14,300 the fines imposed against the union during the Shaw boycott. The union boycotted the Shaw in support of the Seafarers' International Union, arch-enemy of the Canadian Maritime Union which mans Upper Lakes vessels. The •hip was fired upon and dynamited at the Chicago docks. •he Slips BUENOS AIRES - Argentina has lost her place as the world's leading market for anti-biotic imports in bulk.

(AP) — Two Northern senators who spoke to a Negro civil rights group have suggested that states which deter Negroes from voting should lose few Votes themselves—In Congress. Sens. Paul H. Douglas, D-I11., and Jacob Javits, R-N.Y., Indicated Wednesday night i they would favor putting Into effect the second section of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which provides for reducing congressional representation In relation to the number of citizens kept from voting. At a news conference prior to addressing the seventh convention of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Douglas said he understood the U.S. Census Bureau Is planning to survey each congressional district to determine the number of Negroes of voting age, the number registered to vote and the number who vote. He said if it proves a large number of Negroes are disenfranchised, "I'm ready" to Implement the section. Javits said "there Is no question about the justice of that kind of legislation" provided It is based on accurate information. Sen. Douglas told the conference he is not optimistic about the passage of a strong civil rights bill by Congress. "The sober truth is," he said, "that while Grant may have taken Richmond, the South has taken Capitol Hill and to all intents and purposes 'on matters of civil rights the Confederate flag might just as well fly over the Capitol." Douglas said he believed the public accommodations section oi the bill "is morally right and constitutionally defensible both under the 14th Amendment and the commerce clause."

Ford cars have changed Only a test drive can tell you how much. Races and rallies, economy runs, braking and acceleration tests have bred into our 1964 models the kind of total performance you just can't create on .the test track alone. They are hard-muscled, fast-moving, sure-footed. Open competition helped make them that way. They offer you substantially more car than anything at their price. You don't have to take our word for it We're willing to rest our case on our cars. Springfield fined Downey $5,000 and placed him on three years probation. One condition of the probation was repayment of the $77,000. The government served Downey earlier this year with a notice of its claim for the $85,000. In May, Barnett filed a reply to the claim, asking that the Tax Court rede- termine Downey's liability. The government answered that the amount remained the same. Barnett disputed the claim again in a reply in August. The government's civil suit will be heard in the Chicago Tax Court. It has not yet been docketed, but probably will be heard before summer 1964, Barnett said. DAMASCUS — Syrian cotton shippers expect a big year in 1964.
