By CHARLES H. HERROLD Washington. Feb. U — (UPi — The meat industry today raised the possibility that it may reject a government fact-finding board's recommendation for a IG-ccnt hourly wage raise for packinghouse workers. Tho three-man panel made Ihe proposal last night in announcing its formula for settling Ihe wage dispute which led to a strike last ineinlh and government seizure of most packinghouses. 11 proposed lhal five cents of the raise be absorbed by the companies, with the government providing price boosts or subsidies to cover the rest. One of the two unions involved immediately accepted tho proposal. There was no immediate an swer from any individual company, but the American Meat Institute, representing most packers, described Ihe recommendations as "unfair." The institute said the industry "simply cannot" absorb "any part of the proposed increase out of margins permitted by present price controls." An extra 1(5 cents an hour would mean about a 20 per cent raise for workers. The accepting union was the Amalgamated Meat Cullers and Buleljer Workmen (AFL). The United Packinghouse Workers (CIO>. which represents almost two-thirds of the workers involved in the dispute, withheld a statement ponding a wage policy conference al Chicago next week. Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson, government operator of the seix.ed properties, said he w.nilcl ask the government wage stabilization board to order Ihc proposed raise into effect prompt- Under the War Labor Disputes Aet, the wage stabilization board CUM order wage increases in gov- ernmenl-opei-aled properties if the piesidenl approves. The board's investigation of the dispute directly involved only 00,000 production employes of Armour Co.. Swift it Co., Cudahy Packing Co., John II. Morrel'l Co and Wilson Co. It estimated that there were 175,000 employes in the itentirc industry.

ROPER Washington, Feb .8 — (UP) — The bill to establish a permanent Fair Employment Practices Com- nission faced the death sentence oday after more than three weeks of pounding from a southern Democratic filibuster. The formal execution was scheduled for 4 p. m. tomorrow when ,he Senate votes pna proposal to imit debate in this measure. Besides agreed it would fail to pass, orcing the Senate to drop FEPC io it can consider other important egislation. It will be a complete victory for the fire-breathing Southerners. They had tied up the Senate in such a parlimentary tangle that I couldn't even vote on debate lim- talion unless the southerners agreed. The filibustered agreed yesterday after making sure they lad sufficient strength to defeat such cloture, which would require a two-thirds vote. FEPC supporters, virtually admitting defeat, said they would settle for a roll call cloture vote that would put each . senator on record: Their solid front caved in a few hours after Senate Republican Leader Wallace H. White, Jr., Me., denounced FEPC as "evil" and said he would vote against cloture. The exact time for the vote on cloture was influenced by Abraham Lincoln's birthday and the marriage of Gloria Chavez, daughter of Sen. Denniz Chavez, D., N. M. ,FEPC sponsor. Under Senate rules, the cloture vote could not come before Saturday — a day on which the Senate usually does not meet. Many Republicans, however, insisted on a Saturday vote to dispose of FEPC before the week-end so they could leave Washington to make Lincoln day speech Tuesday in their home towns. Also under Senate rules, the cloture vote should have come at 1 p.m. But Miss Chavez is being married at noon tomorrow, so her father got the Senate to delay the vote so he could be present at both events. All of this was done by unanimous consent -after Senate Democratic Leader Alben W. Barkley, Ky., hard-biten warrior of many a legislative battle, referred delicately to "the situation in the domestic household of the senator from New Mexico." The Senate tittered knowingly, but said a 4 p. m. vote would be okay. - sible &L's was back- an had s repara- Philadelphia, Feb. 8 (/I 1 )—Details of the Arkansas Power and Light Company's planned §23.000,000 expansion program during the next lour years were laid before Ihc Securities and Exchange commission yesterday during a hearing em a financing proposal by A.pTL.'s parent, Electric Power and Lighl Corp.

Buckingham Palace Feels Blast Tremor London, Feb. 8 —(UP)—A heavy explosion at the site of the Donald Duck bomb excavation in St. James Park today rattled the windows of Buckingham palace, the House of Commons and the .meeting place of the Uniled Nations. , The explosion was caused by the buried bomb's fuse and the TNT used lo destroy it. The bomb itself was neutralized last night when jets of steam melted out its internal organs. Nobody was killed in the explosion. A black smoke cloud billowed above central London, and the noise echoed over a large area. United Nations delegates in committee meetings at Church houle, near Westminster Abbey, were startled by the noontime ex'plosion. They were quickly reassured and continued their sessions. Several timbers shoring up the excavation which had been dug 30 feet down through the St. James Park duck pond to the buried bomb were hurled into the air by the explosion. An area 100 yards wide had been, cleared before Lieut. R. K. Hilton touched off the explosion with a detonator. In the days before the bomb itself was neutralized residents of the area were warned to move to safety. Queen Mary, mother of King George VI, refused to leave Marlborough House, her residence overlooking the Mall and St. James Park.
