In an executive order, the President said the strike will, if pcr- milled lo continue, imperil the national health and safety. At the same lime, Kennedy set up a three-member emergency board to consider facts and circumstances of the dispute between sea-going unions and ship operators. Kennedy set a deadline of Friday for Iho board lo make ils report. The board, under Tafl-Harlley law, will make no recommendations, but will merely report on 'the issues of the dispulc.

Hooker said he could neither confirm nor deny such a possibility. One of the prisoners privately indicated that Hooker was offered a new proposal during his brief meeting with them Sunday. Negotiations for tho prisoners' release broke down Friday when prime. Mipistcr Fidel Castro rejected a final offer, of .500 goner- osc tractors from the 'com tcc. Castro said then he would send, 10 prisoners back to the United States to explain his position. The same prisoner group visited Miami and Washington last month after Castro first asked for 500 heavy tractors. When asked about the $28 million estimated cost of the tractors demanded by Castro, Ulises @?>rbo, leader of the prisoner del- fciAtion, replied: "The tractors nrc worth $28 million in Cuba. They arc much cheaper here," indicating that a face-saving formula may be found in a reduced GOVERNOR ARRESTED — NEVADA'S Gov.

Secretary of Labor Arthur-.J. Goldberg is schedule^" to 'give the President the results of a weekend survey on the strike's irn- pacl. If Ihe President decides Ihe slrikc imperils Ihe nation's health or safety, he could seek an )!0 - day court injunction against continuation ot the trikc. Three maritime unions moved to head off the Tafl-Hartlcy process with an offer Sunday lo keep critically needed supplies moving. ap- Ihat would determine which cargoes were essential to Ihe hcallh, safely and security of the nation. Striking seamen then would work ships carrying these supplies. An estimated 150 ships, including passenger liners, arc tied up on the East, Gulf and Wcsl Coasls. Slrike losses have run lo many millions of dollars a day and from Hawaii have come rc- porls of dwindling food supplies and a piling up of exports. Even if Kennedy decides to invoke the Taft-Harllcy emergency provisions il would lake a week or so before a strike-ending court injunclion could be obtained. In this period, a fact-finding panel appoinled by Kennedy would review the dispute quickly ind submit a report without rec- mmcndalions. Once this report is at the While louse, Kennedy could tell the Juslice Department to go after an injunclion which would force Ihe strikers back to work. The court order directs bargaining to •esume, aided by the Federal Mediation Service, during the 80- day cooling off period. Although Goldberg, former counsel for the Stcelworkcrs Union, is not sympathetic to use of Tafl-Harlley, he said over the weekend the law will be enforced if national health or safely is endangered. "Whether we like il or nol Ihis is our plain duty," Goldberg said. Kennedy himself voted againsl SoysOrvol Ended Son's Opposition 1IUNTSVILLE, Ark.
