RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Sundoy. July 25, 1965 Monday Vote Considered Crucial in Taft-Hartley Repeal Dispute Edwin Bogucki and the Bremen Town Musicians Racine Artist Takes Time Out 'for the Kids' By John M. Pavllk Journal-Times Stajf The donkey who organized the Bremen Town Musicians was no Lipizzan, but Edwin Bogucki of 2837 Sunrise Road sculptured him anyway* "It's strictly a fun thing," he said. Bogucki, a Racine painter- sculptor-horseman who lives by his painting and sculpturing, is proudest of the work he's done on the Lipizzans— an Austrian riding breed which takes its name from the imperial stud at Lipizza, near Trieste. Time for Toys' "When I'm working on the Lipizzans I work with more vigor, more fire, more sweat," he said. But he has time for "toys" too, and his five-foot fairy tale statue of the disgruntled travelers will stand in his backyard "for the kids." TJiere was once a don- Jcey who had served his master £aitMuUy for, many years. But he was growing old and no longer able to carry giain to the mill and his master decided to sell him. When tlie donkey learned of this he made up his mind to run away. He took the road to Bremen Town, w here he thought he would become a traveling musician. After walking a little way, he met a dog panting by the roadside. "What's the matter?" asked the donkey. "You look very downhearted todav." "Indeed I am," replied the dog. "Fm not so young as I once was and my master no longer wants me." by the fireplace than catch mice, my mistress wants to find a new home for me. So I ran away. But now I don't know how to live." "Come with us to Bremen Town," said the donkey. "You are a splendid night singer and you may sing in our band." The cat joined them and away they went. Soon they came to a farmyard. Sitting on the gate was a cock, crowing which lived a band of ro]3bers. The donkey, who was with all his might. "Good morning," said the donkey. "Why are you crowing so loud?" "This morning I was crowing to let my mistress know we Avere going to have fine weather, when sJie came out and told t/ie cook that company was coming for supper and to make soup of me." "Don't grieve over that," said the donkey "You have a fine voice; come with us to Bremen. We're going to be traveling musicians." Off the four went, very happy and free at heart. When night fell they looked for a place to sleep and, seeing a light through the trees, followed it to a house in the tallest, looked in the window. "I see a table spread with the best things to eat and drink, and some men sitting around eating and making merry," said the donkey. "That's just the place for us," said the cock. Fire Destroys Paintings Though Bogucki paints horses for a living, he also does children's portraits and occasional commissions for other art. He recently completed a large diorama of prairie chickens for the Milwaukee City. Museum. A collection of 18 Lipiz­ zans and other paintings which Bogucki estimates to have been worth $20,000 was destroyed in a basement fire at his home last May. He was most concerned about the Lipizzan paintings, which he is only now beginning to replace. The Lipizzan, whose high- stepping movements were designed to protect its rider in war, is "like a ballerina" to Bogucki, "if you can describe a horse that way. Really, it's the most graceful thing I've ever seen." The new collection, one painting of which is already done, "will be a better collection," Bogucki said. "And the collection will be mine, it won't be sold." So at a signal the Florida Attorneys Act to Delay Trial News MIAMI, Fla. —(JP)— The "Well don't be unbap-j80-member Florida Criminal py about that," said the donkey, "come wilh me to Bremen.

Hearing this terrible noise the robbers jumped up and ran and ran until they were far from the house. But the robbers soon decided they had been too easily frightened, and one of them went back to the house te see what had happened. He opened the door quietly, tiptoed across the room, picked up a candle and stooped to light it from the bright coals burning in the fireplace. But what he thought were coals were the eyes of the cat shining in the darkness. The cat jumped up and scratched both his hands. The dog awakened and sprang upon him as he ran out the door. As he ran through the gate the donkey kicked him and the cock, which was atop the house, crowed "cock- a-doodle-do." When the robber reached his companions, he told them that an old witch was in the house and scratched him when he tried to light a candle. A man with a knife stood behind a door and slabbed him as he v/ent by. At the gate stood a monster who struck him with a club and on top of the house was a judge who called out, "Bring the rascal to me." The robbers never went jjack to the house, but the traveling musicians liked it so much that they lived there the rest of their days. WASHINGTON — i/B — House Republicans are plan­ ning'a two-stage fight against the administration's bill to repeal a Taft-Hartley law provision which permits states to outlaw the union shop. The bill, which has touched off one of the sharpest disputes of the session, comes up Monday and the GOP opponents will try first to change the conditions under which it will be considered. In an effort to keep debate confined to the single issue of repeal of section 14B of the Taft-Hartley act. House leaders have indicated they will rule out of order all amendments that raise any other questions. 4 Amendments Ready The Republicans will try to upset this strategy Monday by persuading the House to reject the resolution making the bill in order and substituting a new one that would permit amendments. The vote on passage of the bill won't come until Tuesday. Rep. Robert P. Griffin, R- Mich., who is leading the fight for the GOP, has four amendments he says should be added to the act if 14B is repealed and all of a plant's employes are required to pay dues when a union and management sign a union shop agreement. Griffin's amendments would prohibit unions from discriminating against Negroes, using union dues for political purposes, or fining or penalizing union members who exercise their legal rights. He would provide also that persons who have religious convictions against joining unions could not be forced into a union. Griffin and the leaders of the fight for repeal agree that Monday's vote on the question of making amendments in order is the crucial one. Challenges Minority Diligent efforts by labor union lobbyists, the administration and House leaders are believed to have produced enough votes for repeal when that issue is faced Tuesday. Minority leader Gerald Ford of Michigan sounded the battle cry for the Republicans when he issued a statement asking House members to prove Monday "whether they Are members of an independent branch of government or simply yes men responding blindly to the manipulation of the executive branch." Ford accused the House Democratic leaders of bringing up 14B "under the most stringent of gag rules," and added: Raises "Rights" Issue "If the House is not to sacrifice its self-respect, it will vote down the proposal that it shut its mouth, plug its ears, close its eyes and swallow the Johnson administration's prescription without adequate debate and without opportunity to vote on im- Iportant amendments." The Democratic leaders are counting on a tenuous coalition of urban and rural members to provide the votes for repeal of 14B. The issue has been tied to the forthcoming farm bill, with the urban members being asked to support the farm bill in exchange for rural votes on repeal of 14B. Nineteen southern and western states have banned union shop agreements under 14B. Backers of repeal have had to quiet a Civil Rights issue raised by Rep. Adam Clayton Powell, D-N.Y., chairman of the Education and "Labor Committee, which has charge of the repeal legislation. Powell, who has the authority ,to call up the repealer, demanded his committee approve another bill to strengthen federal laws against job discrimination, before he did so. : He won his fight and a labor subcommittee is scheduled to meet at 9:30 a.m. Monday to report the bill to the full committee, which is due to meet at 10:30 a.m. to approve it before the House session begins at noon.

Holiday Traffic Flow Jams German Roads FRANKFURT, Germany(TP) —^Thousands of Germans started vacations in traffic jams Saturday. The flow of holiday traffic, which this weekend is at a peak following summer closure of most of the country's schools, was reduced to trickling pace from Hamburg in the north to Munich in the south. The biggest, snarl - ups on the autobahns, including one nearly 10 miles long, were caused by accidents.

The novel project has been more than 18 months in the making and is slated for completion this fall. White Slabs The builders stripped the stone exterior from the Times Tower steel skeleton and replaced it with new, white marble slabs. The interior was completely redone. The lines of the new tower are clean and uncluttered. Allied retained several features of the old structure which had helped to make the Times Tower a New York landmark. News still is flashed on the side of the building through a moving light bulb arrangement. A large lighted ball is dropt)ed from the top of a pole on the tower's roof each New Year's Eve to mark the dawn of a new year. 18 Feet Higher When completed at the turn of the century, the Times Tower was the second highest building in the city—topped then only by the Park Row Building in downtown Manhattan. The Park Row structure was 18 feet higher. Once the home of the New York Times, the tower offices were leased to other concerhs after the newspaper moved its headquarters to a larger building a short distance away. When opened this fall, the tower will be a showplace for the chemical corporation. The three bottom floors will be used for display purposes. Offices for Allied personnel will occupy most of the other floors. Public dining rooi'ns are planned on upper levels, as is an observation platform for gazing over the busy ar.ea from 24 floors up.

"I guess it didn't have the right consistency." So Bogucki molded the foursome in plaster, a hard medium for a sculptor to use. "You have to move extremely fast to mold in plaster," Bogucki said. "Once it's set, forget it. You have to use a meat cleaver on it." Presently they met a cat sitting by tlie side of tiie road looking very sad. "Good morning, Tabby," said the donkey. "Why are you grieving?" President Walter Gwinn of Miami said lawyers who violate the rule would be reported to the bar for disciplinary action. The association's action was criticized by George iBeebe, managing editor of the Miami Herald and president of the Associated Press Managing Editors Assn. "What the Florida Criminal Defense Attorneys Assn. proposed is not only a dangerous threat to the public's right to know, but it would provide even greater protection for the nation's criminal scum than is now afforded," Beebe said.
