Carroll Daily Times Herald Vol. 90—No. 233 Carroll, Iowa, Saturday, October 3,1959—Eight Pages Delivered by Carrier Boy Each Evening lor 35 Cent* Per Week 7 - Sin«l« Copy Hopes Dim For Early Dock Accord No Negotiations Scheduled Before October 15 NEW YORK (AP) — An early settlement of the longshoremen's strike that has shut down ports along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts appeared unlikely today. The New York Shipping Assn. says it will not meet with the International Longshoremen's Assn. until Oct. 15. The union says its workers will not return to the docks until it has a new contract. Shippers say the strike is costing them 20 million dollars a day. Robert. H. Moore, deputy director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, plans to meet Monday separately with both sides but he has indicated that the immediate possibility of liis persuading them to meet jointly is unlikely. 200 Freighters Tied Up The strike of about 85,000 longshoremen from Searsport, Maine, to Brownsville, Texas, has tied up cargo operations on about 200 freighters. The strike developed early Thursday in Southern ports and quickly spread northward. The- New York Shipping Assn., which represents 170 steamship lines and contracting stevedores in the port of New York, negotiates master contracts for all employers from Maine to Virginia. The association and union leaders had agreed to a 15-day extension of the contract that expired Sept. 30 and also had agreed that any new benefits would be retroactive to Oct. 1. The association's contracts with (he longshoremen traditionally set the pattern for agreements between regional employer groups in the South and ILA locals there. Southern longshoremen said they had received no retroactive promises from their employers and walked out. Their Northern colleagues followed to show solidarity. Thus, retroactivity is an issue only at Southern ports. Automation Block Automation is the key stumbling block in the disagreement. Shippers want to be free to introduce any new piece of equipment in loading or unloading cargo. The union position is that it should be consulted by management each time a change is considered and that no new method should be introduced without its consent. The last money offer of the shippers to Northern longshoremen was a 30-cent package conditional on the ILA's acceptance of management's views on automation. The union's last demand was a 50-cent package with changes in work rules that would discourage automation. Longshoremen here average $107.76 a week in pay. Does More Than Buzz— Louis Richards, graduate design student at Illinois Tccli, Chicago, 111., has harnessed the gnatty buzz of a 1.32 h.p. model aircraft engine to ground transportation. His "Skccter," an 18-inch-long aluminum platform on wheels carries its passengers in two-footed comfort at about 12 miles an hour, three times the speed normally made by a pedestrian. Highly mancuvcrable, the 12-pound device folds into a canvas carrying case. Du Pont-GM Decision Calms Financial World CHICAGO (AP)—A federal court order severing corporate ties between Du Pont and General Motors without forcing a mass stock Rockfard Man, 89, Dies in Auto Crash NORA SPRINGS (AP)—Fred S. Fiirness, 89, Rockt'ord, Iowa, was killed and his wife and three young people from Mason City were injured Friday night in an auto accident. Authorities said the accident apparently occurred when Mrs. Furness, who was driving one car, turned off Highway 18 onto a side n;ad a mile west of here. Mrs. Fiirness was in fair condi- lion Saturday. Two passengers in the other car, driven by John Johnson, 24, were in good condi- lion. They are Patricia Lannon, I!), and Lt. Howard Myli, 24. Johnson received only minor injuries. Three Force Cuban Pilot to Fly to U. S MIAMI, Fla. (AP)-Using live hand grenades and a .45 caliber automatic pistol, three Cubans hijacked a Cubana Airlines plane Friday night and forced the pilot to fly to Miami. The Cubans—a father, his 16- year-old daughter and another man—were turned over to immigration authorities by police who accepted their surrender in the cockpit of the four-engine Viscount turbo-prop airliner. Police identified the trio as Esteban Betancourt, 47, his daughter Glorida, 16, and Osvaldo Hernandez, 28. They surrendered without resistance and asked for political asylum. Immigration authorities said they agreed to withhold information on the Cubans at their request. The plane was en route from Havana to Santiago, Cuba, with 36 passengers and a crew of four when the trio entered the cabin. It was the fourth hijacked airliner to land here since April 16.

Du Font's president said he was gratified with the ruling which generally followed a proposa made by Du Pont attorneys. The government, which hac asked sale and distribution of Di Font's 63 million shares of GIV stock, has not said whether it wil appeal the decision. Its attorneys said they are studying the long decree. Favorable to Both Sides First reaction in financial cir cles was unanimous that the nil ing was favorable to both sides, U.S. Dist. Court Judge Waltei J. La Buy, late Friday after domestic stock exchanges closed for the weekend, held that the distribution was not necessary. Government attorneys had asked distribution of the GM shares, worth some S'.fe billion dollars, as a means of ending a Clayton Antitrust Law violation. The Supreme Court held such a violation resulted from Du Font's possession of the shares, comprising 23 per cent of the outstanding GM stock. Judge La Buy said in his 101- page printed order that the government plan was "unncessarily harsh and punitive." His solution to the problem was a ban on voting rights for Du Pont on its GM stock, and other bars to influence by Du Pont interests upon GM management affairs. 10 Year Effort The order, latest development in the government's 10-year effort to sever the two industrial giants, besides shifting Du Pout's voting rights in its GM stock to individual Du Pont stockholders: 1.

Gentile, 32, of Cleveland, Ohio, breathed easier after FBI agents and police nabbed three men who had been trailing him and his $50,000 worth of jewels for four days. Held for investigation in the al- day he thought he was being followed. He was instructed to keep visiting customers as usual. And so he did—tagged by three strangers in a car who were in turn trailed by police and FBI men. "It was quite a procession leged theft are John Mazzeo, 42, j around lown ,.

Gentile had told the FBI Tues;- LITTLE L-iX Lot of people must think it's more fun going broke than not to go at all. The game ended Friday. Gentile placed his sample case of diamonds, pearls, watches and other jewelry in the trunk of his car while he had lunch in a restaurant. Ford said Berkowitz got out of a car nearby, walked to Gentile's, opened it with a key and drove away. Mazzeo and Katz, Ford said, followed in the car from which Berkowitz had alighted. Three blocks away, police halted Mazzeo ar.d Katz. Berkowitz, who Ford said apparently was observing through a rear view mirror, stopped Gentile's car about 200 feet ahead, threw away a key and took off on foot. Detective James Bannon covered Berkowitz, who ignored one warning to stop but halted when Red Chinese Hot Cold on Nikita Plans Likely to Exclude Formoso in Any 'Peace' Move By JOHN RODERICK TOKYO (AP) — Nikita Khrushchev neared the climax of his Red China visit today as his Chinese hosts waxed hot and cold over his proposals for easing the cold war. A few hours after the Soviet Premier's fourth meeting with 65- year-old Red Chinese leader Mao Tze-tung, the official Peoples Daily carried a lead editorial saying the Communist world "accorded warm response and support" to the communique the Soviet Premier jointly issued with President Eisenhower after his historic 13-day visit to the United States. That document stressed the renunciation of force in settling international quarrels. U.S. Move Unsuccessful The United States has sought without success to have Peiping say it will abandon force as a means of acquiring the island of Formosa, now ruled by Mao's arch enemy, Chiang Kai-shek. Should the Chinese Communists do so, it would be a significant move in improving their relations with Washington. Chinese premier Chou En-lai said soon after Khrushchev arrived in Peiping Wednesday he welcomed the communique. But Friday's Peoples Daily gave equal space to the reprint of an article by Foreign Minister Chen Yi which called on "all peoples in the world to wage a long and unrelenting fight against American imperialism." The article was written for the Soviet newspaper Izvestia in honor of Red China's 10th anniversary celebration Oct. 1. It gave little or no encouragement to hopes Peiping was prepared to soften its attitude toward the United States. The Chinese Reds are expected tc give Khrushchev general support in his campaign to remove the major points of friction be- Iween Moscow and Washington. They may even go so far as declare they, too, oppose the use of war in settling international disputes. Would Exclude Formosa But if they do so, they almost certainly would exclude Formosa rom such a commitment for they lave repeatedly described the is- and as an internal matter. This does not mean the two Communist leaders left Formosa out of their discussions. Mao could veil have suggested some new avenue of approach for Khrushchev to raise in his meeting with Eisenhower in Moscow next ipring. In official statements so far, D eiping has reiterated its deter- nination to "liberate" Formosa ut has avoided saying it would ase its military might to do so. Defense Minister Lin Piao said would be taken, "one way or mother." Pay Package for Tighter Control- Study Steel Industry Offer PITTSBURGH (AP) — David J. McDonald, president of the striking United Stcelworkcrs, today summoned the union's International executive board to a meeting here tomorrow. McDonald announced the meeting following a negotiating session with Industry representatives in an effort to end the 81-day-oId nationwide steel strike.

Nixon said today the United States must use all its resources and people as fully as possible "if we are to meet the competition of other nations and other political systems." Khrushchev Challenge Nixon cited specifically the chal lenge which he said Soviet Pre mier Nikita Khrushchev "so blunt ly laid before the American people on his visit here." The vice president's remark; were prepared for a ground-break ing ceremony for the Hopkinton Everett dam and reservoir, financed by the federal government. Tha 30-million dollar project is the largest flood control system ever built in the East. "No nation in the world can afford the luxury of continual floods, and the United States is no exception," Nixon said. "We have the basic resources and know-how essential for the maintenance of an ever-expanding economy," Nixon said. "We can keep all our people busy producing wealth, enhancing the wel- are of all citizens and increasing ;he nation's strength. Must Stop Leaks "But to do this, we must stop up all the leaks—the waste which nature on the rampage inflicts on the country's resources." When Nixon arrived at Concord airport he was greeted by a crowd of 2,000. He waved to the crowd and ihook hands with several acquaintances before heading into ,own to meet Gov. Wesley Powell and other Republican leaders.

His answer is expected the first of the week. The petitions were placed in circulation the middle of the week when it became evident that Mayor Neu was considering that he would become a candidate for reelection. Within two days some 900 voluntarily signed the petitions. "The undersigned citizens of Carroll respectfully urge you to be a candidate for the office of Mayor of the City of Carroll at the next election," the petition states. "Your record assures us of a sound and progressive administration of our municipal and public affairs. "It is essential that impartial and efficient administration of the government of our city be continued," the petition added. Following the presentations of the petitions, Mayor Neu said he appreciated the assurance contained in the petition but that he would not rftake any definite decision until the first of next week. Mayor and Mrs. Neu are in Iowa City today to see the Iowa-Northwestern football game, Mayor Neu being a graduate of Northwestern University. other industry spokesmen. Reliable sources in the industry say McDonald has been told he can have an annual eight-cent hourly pay package increase in a contract which contains language permitting management, more control over working schedules, seniority arrangements, and other working conditions. The reported eight-cent package apparently would be split up in welfare and pension benefits the first year of a two-year agreement and then be applied to a pay increase in the second year. The company suggestion, apparently not. submitted yet as a formal proposal, came during a new round of negotiations that opened in Pittsburgh Thursday after President Eisenhower rapped knuckles on both sides. He said he wanted to see some progress toward ending the 81-day-old dispute. Denounced Demand The Saturday session would make it appear that McDonald had not rejected the suggestion, and certainly had not accepted it. McDonald previously had denounced company demands for working rule changes as a union- busting move.
