Judge Emerich B. Freed was expected " t o consider the government's request for an injunction order without delay. Justice .Department attorneys filed the action for the Army, which has controlled the railroads since August 27, 1950. Their petition also asked the. court to keep the engineers, firemen and 'conductors from spreading the walkout to other railroads. ·' A spokesman for the striking . rail unions said they would have no comment until after they had studied the government's suit, which asks temporary injunctive . relief and suggests there be a hearing within 10 days on making the injunction permanent. Since the surprise strike started Sunday morning, only the New York Central Lines west of Buffalo and the St. LoUis Terminal have been targets of the three rail operating brotherhoods. A b o u t 6,000 men are on strike and an additional 25,000 New York Central employes have been laid off. Contempt Possible Americans Have Chance To Select Good Nan As President, Says Fulbrighl Of Russell "The senator made a .very favorable' impression with all of the Nebraska Republicans, lie is an excellent speaker and a very brilliant man. Too bad we don't have more like him in Washington." So writes Robert S. McGranahan director of general printing and-information at the University of Omaha, Neb., follosving two lectures given by Sen. J. W. Fulbright of Arkansas in the university's Saxter Lecture Series. McGrana- lan encloses two clippings from the Omaha World Herald, one re- Jorting an interview the senator granted. In this report, Senator Fi'lbright a i d ' t h a t Senator Russell (Dem. 3.B.) is the ablest of all the avowed Democratic candidates for presi- -"Jt is a sad thing - t h a t the American people don't know more about Senator Russell," he is quoted as'saying, terming the Georgian "the 1 most influential man' in the Senate." "He is the Senate's balance wheel," Mr. Fulbright said. "He takes the crazy parts out of. bills, things you never read about." Fulbright said the reason the press pays little attention to the Georgia senator is because he "has little reader interest. He does not go around making sensational or ridiculous statements." In the interview the Arkansas senator said: "If the people haven't got enough: discrimination and judgment .to take a good man, then it will be heir responsibility. In Russell they've got t h a t good man."

The former president and behind-the-scenes dictator who rose to power again yesterday in a swift, almost Woodless revolution announced a series of "statutes o: government;" including a 45-day suspension of the right to strike. President Carlos Prio Socarras who fled the presidential palace after Batista and his junta of 1.5 or 20 Army captains f.nd lieutenants had seized control of nil major miltary and police establishments -here, slipped into the Mexican Embassy early today and asked for asylum. Batista's '''proclamation said the revolutionary junta-- that apparently is what his government will be called -- had resolved that he assume the "leadership of the state" and therefore "I take charge of organizing and directing the executive and legislative powers." He pledged to sweep Cuba clean of "thieving and gangsterism in government." In addition to suspending Con gross and 'constitutional guaran tecs for 45 days, he authorized a! persons having guns illegally t turn them into police within fiv days without giving their name or facing prosecution.

It seems Dillon was the angler who saw thc creature. Here's the story as related by Dillon to Scales: Dillon was running a trolllnc one day when thc thing floated lo the surface as he raised the line. The creature stared at him a few seconds and then tried to shake the hooks from its mouth. It had green spotted skin slml- Inr to that of · frog and a mon- kcylikc head. Its lips were blue, it had no teeth. Its hands were the size of a man's but It had web fingers and claw like nails. Thc thing then pushed thc boat around with a tall or a hind foot and starled swimming away, break- Ing loose one hook and straightening out two others. It disappeared Into n clump of bushes. "I first thought It was a man who had tangled In the line," said Dillon. "Thai's why I didn't club It with a paddle."
