To Gilbert Ohio's Bliss Expected In Caucus To Take GOP Reins By BERNIE WYNN Republic Political Writer REP. Jack Gilbert, D-Cochise, yesterday was pledged J 7 votes in the Democratic caucus, enough to win the speakership of the Arizona House of Rep resentatives. He is expected to pick up two or three more Democrats in last-minute vote' switching when the House meets at noon today for its formal organization. At the moment, Gilbert can count on 35 Republican votes to go with his Democratic bloc to form a coalition having a minimum of 52 members. It takes 41 votes to organize the lower chamber. Prior to the caucus, Rep. Gordon Hoopes, D - Graham, received unanimous backing from 24 Democrats who met separately. At the main party caucus he picked up one more for a count of 25 to form the House minority bloc. Hoopes said he has been pledged the additional support of Reps. ,Polly Getzwiller, D-Pinal, and Kent Smith, D-Mc-have, at today's balloting. They were among three missing at yesterday's caucus. THE THIRD, Rep. Fred Smith, D - Pinal, has been counted as a member of the Gil bert coalition. i If the alliances hold firm, Gilbert will have a total of 53 votes, one short of the two thirds necessary to enact emergency legislation, and there will be a potent 27-member minority. Across the mall, Sen. Clarence Carpenter, D-Gila, won an unprecedented sixth term as president in unanimous balloting of the 25 Democratic senators present. Only Sen. David Palmer, D - Yavapai, was absent. "There is every indication that we will have a harmonious and productive session," Carpenter said. "I certainly hope so." HE SAID he is assured of a solid working majority of at least 20 of the 28 senators. "And there may be more," he said. "The door is always open." The Senate's two Republi-(Continued on Page 8, Col. 1) By ROBERT J. DONOVAN Los Angeles Times Service WASHINGTON - Republican National Chairman Dean Burch is expected to resign soon, possibly this week, to be replaced by Ray C. Bliss of Ohio. Burch, reached at his home yesterday, declined to comment on published reports that the various factions of the national committee were on the brink of agreement to install Bliss as the new chairman. Nevertheless, highly placed Republican officials said that Barry Goldwater has agreed to Burch's replacement by Bliss when the national com-, mittee meets in Chicago Jan. 22-23. Members of the com- mittee would not breathe a word on the subject over the weekend, however, for fear of angering the 1964 Republican nominee and overturning the agreement. IN THE INNER circles of the party it was expected that an announcement might come as early as this week, probably taking the form of a statement by Burch that he would step aside in favor of Bliss. Some Republican insiders attribute the sudden change of heart on the part of Burch and Goldwater to the influence of William E. Miller, former Republican national chairman and Goldwater's running-mate in 1964. According to these sources, Miller had kept prodding Burch and Goldwater to fight to keep the chairmanship in Burch's hands on the assumption that there would be enough pro-Burch votes in the committee to prevent Burch's overthrow. However, so the story goes, Miller concluded several days ago that Burch would be defeated in a showdown in Chicago. REVERSING,his early advice, therefore, Miller reportedly counselled Goldwater and Burch to avoid the risk of an embarrassing repudiation at Chicago and make the best of (Continued on Page 9, Col. 1) Victim Shoots Offender in Traffic Mishap PARIS (AP) - An angry motorist whose car had been slightly scratched in a traffic accident yesterday pulled a gun out of his gloVe compartment and shot the offending driver in the head, police said.

Police said the other motorist, Algerian-b 0 r n Abdelkader Dagh-mouche, turned himself in explaining: "I was crazy with anger." Rock Island Okays Union Pacific Link CHICAGO (UPI)-Stockholders- of the Rock Island, a 'mighty good road" according to the folk singers, voted yesterday to merge the line with the Union Pacific into what might become the nation's largest railroad system. Jervis Langdon Jr., Rock Island board chairman, said stockholders voted 8-1 favor of thej merger. Union Pacific stockholders approved the merger Nov. 22, 1964. However, the of fer must be reapproved by Union Pacific shareholders.

Johnson is speeding up his legislative proposals instead of spreading them out as originally planned. The President's determination for quick action prompted Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana to predict yes terday that Congress will adjourn by Aug. 1. This would be the earliest adjournment since 1956, when Congress quit on July 27. Congress continued in session until Oct. 3 last year, despite efforts at both the capi-tol and the White House to wind up work so that the politicians could go home and campaign. Dock Workers Strike Atlantic, Gulf Ports NEW YORK (AP) - A strike of 60,000 Atlantic-Gulf coast longshoremen, which a helpless federal government blamed on "confusion and misunderstanding," began at 12:01 a.m. today. Longshoremen in many of the struck ports had worked extra hours, at weekend overtime pay, to move cargo before the deadline, but many ships were A Prayer FATHER, grant me the wisdom and courage to walk uprightly. Take all softness from my will, and make me strong within to withstand the temptations that sweep upon me from without. Establish my faith on the firm foundation of Thy presence today and forever. Amen. stranded. Asst. Secretary of Labor James J. Reynolds, who had been trying to mediate the dispute, went back to Washington last night to confer with Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz, and President Johnson was being kept informed of the situation. ABOUT 30 ships were worked yesterday by longshoremen in the port of New York, but a heavy snowstorm halted all work on the docks by 9 p.m At that time all 30 ships were still in port, including six that had been scheduled to sail last night ahead of the strike. Baltimore had 31 ships strikebound, with weekend work virtually halted by rain and snow. At Hampton Roads, Va., six vessels were caught by the strike and five more were due during the night. A SPOKESMAN for Galveston, Tex., ship operators said some ships pulled out of he port with partial loads to avoid being tied up by longshore pickets. Before leaving for Washington, Reynolds blamed the stale mate on what he said was failure of the union membership to understand the contract terms they had rejected. He said he thought the strike would fail. "If anyone has any illusion that there will be changes in (Continued on Page 9, Col. 1) mission, where it may face i major hurdle. The Chicago and North West ern, which made its own offer for the Rock Island, immediately announced it would oppose the merger before the ICC. Ben W. Heineman, North Western chairman, said his line has made no decision on whether to seek a court review of Rock Island's election procedure. THE NORTH Western would join with the St. Louis and San Francisco, the Missouri Pacific, the Denver, Rio Grande and Western, and the Milwaukee Road, which is involved in merger talks with the North Western, in opposing the Union Pacific-Rock Island merger. Heineman said in a statement that the issue the ICC must decide is whether "a rich and powerful railroad such as the Union Pacific shall be permitted to enter Chicago and St Louis and thereby impair the (Continued on Page 9, Col. 2) Armed Man, Companion Captured Near Kingman KINGMAN (AP) - An armed man was captured today at an inspection station north of Kingman but his companion fled into the nearby foothills Some 30 possemen aided by police dogs pursued the fugitive. Taken after a brief run through the desert was George Law-son, 23, of Van Nuys, Calif. His companion, Gary Edward Clark, 22, of Santa Monica, Calif., was captured about five hours later after eluding his pur suers and backtracking to a motel on the east side of Kingman. Mohave County Sheriff said Lawson and Clark were stopped at the inspection station 2 miles north of Kingman to check ownership of the car. WHEN HIGHWAY patrolmen reached the scene, Cisney said Lawson jumped from the car with a .22 caliber revolver. The weapon discharged and a bullet struck the top of the car. Law-son was captured a few minutes later after he ran into the desert. Cisney said Lawson surrendered his gun.

Snow, Sleet Spread Over Northeast By UP INTERNATIONAL THE NEW YEAR'S first great storm spattered snow, sleet and rain from Texas to Maine yesterday, bringing heavy snow warnings to 16 Northeast states. The northern plains' subzero cold went into its fourth successive week. It was 9 below zero at midday in International Falls, Minn., and 6 degrees at Minneapolis, Minn. Midday temperatures were below zero from northeast Montana to northwest Wisconsin. UP TO 11 inches of snow fell in a belt from Virginia and West Virginia to southern New England. Woodstock, Va., reported 11 inches of snow on the ground and Westminster, Md., had 10 inches. The storm moved northeast late yesterday, dumping up to 6 inches between noon and 6 p.m. and threatening heavy falls in New England, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Connecticut and Long Island braced for accumulations up to 10 inches.

"I THINK ALL the committee assignments will be completed this week," he said. "Then we'll be ready to go." Mansfield said he has alerted committee chairmen to move promptly in getting various "holdover" bills to the floor by March 9. These include measures, considered last year but not finally acted upon, to aid the Appalachian area, expand the area redevelopment program, and provide for presidential succession. With no legislation yet on the calendars, the Senate and House will hold only perfunctory sessions this week. The House will meet today, but no business is scheduled. The Senate will meet tomorrow, then recess until Friday. Johnson's series of special messages began last week with proposals for a broad health program, including hospital care for the aged under Social Security. HE WILL FOLLOW this up tomorrow with proposals for a $1.5 billion education program. His program will call for dramatic breakthroughs in some areas, such as federal aid to "poverty impacted" public schools and federal scholarships.

The Cargomaster, largest aircraft the Air Force uses to transport supplies and personnel, had been airborne less than a minute when it crashed in pre-dawn darkness, the Air Force headquarters at Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii, said. SEATTLE (AP)-The problem facing Superior Court Judge Edward .E. Henry may drive him to abstraction. On the one hand stands a 16-foot pile of wax entitled "Rock Totem." On the other sits a similar 8-foot bronze pile called "Transcending." Henry must decide if they involve plagiarism. Veteran Seattle sculptor James H. Fitzgerald, 54, says "Transcending" is a meager imitation of his "Totem" and is asking $50,000 from its 30-year-old designer, Robert E. Hopkins, for artistic theft. Hopkins, a one-time junk dealer with a master's degree in art, says his pile is any-thing but a totem and has countersued for $25,000 slander damages. "My original idea was to do this with outstretched arms," Hopkins says fondly admiring his pile. "But it came out differently. "Actually it is kind of a simplified crucifixion. The feeling is of one figure rising out of another. That is why I have entitled it 'Transcending.' " Despite being hah the size of Fitzgerald's sculpture, Hopkins considers his abstraction a more complex work. "Mine is more squat, if I may use that unlovely word, because it lets you 'stay' in one position. It does not 'take you up.'" Fitzgerald's piece first appeared in public in the northwest Art Exhibit of the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. Hopkins admits seeing it there before he produced his work but claims his grew from an unrelated idea. "I was drinking beer and talking with my friends when I designed it. You don't really see what you mean in your i own work. You may not see ii for years." The parade of art experts' \ who have been discussing the ; abstractions in court all last week is due to end today and then it will be up to Judge Henry to compare them and decide. Bulletin WOOSTER, Ohio (AP) -Two freight trains collided head-on early today at a crossing on the outskirts of Sterling. One unidentified body was recovered from the wreckage, one person survived and four others were presumed dead. A fire was raging out of control at the track intersection of the Baltimore & Ohio and Erie-Lackawanna railroads. A deputy sheriff said it had been reported that the B&O train was unable to stop for a signal at the crossing. The tracks run parallel for a distance and cross at that point. None of the persons, who were trapped in the diesel engines, was identified.
