Humphrey yesterday promised labor leaders the administration will press for a change in the Taft-Hartley law that would nul lify right-to-work laws in 20 states. "We'll get the job done at a time when we have the means and the votes," Humphrey told 800 delegates at the start of a four-day conference on organied labor's 1965 legislative goals. AFL-CIO President George Meany singled out right-to-work laws and their abolition as one of labor's major goals this year. As Humphrey and Meany spoke, a group of pickets describing themselves as "union members against compulsory union membership" marched in front of AFL-CIO headquarters. Cecil L. Mitchell of Tujunga, Calif., a member of the AFL-ClO Machinists Union, said the group represented "thousands of unio . members who are opposed to making union membership compulsory, many of whom are afraid to speak out for them selves for fear of retaliation by the union bosses." In his State of the Union address, President Johnson advocated repeal of Section 14B of the Taft-Hartley Act. This section allows individual states to pass laws banning compulsory union membership clauses in labor contracts, and 20 states have such laws. MEANY said repeal of thi section would be "in the broad, public interest" and was not a "narrow, selfish proposal" by labor. He also gave special attention to labor's goal of * raising the federal minimum wage from $1.25 per hour to $2 per hour. Meany said the present minimum was "legislated poverty" even for those covered by the law, and "for those who are left out, it is worse." Humphrey vowed that Congress would pass a program of hospital care for the elderly under Social Security "before the first flower of spring blooms." He also predicted that the nation's economy would continue to expand under the Johnson administration. Meany called on union members to "answer the mandate of the people" by working for labor's 1965 program. "To a greater degree than ever before in the history of this country," Meany said, "the stated goals of the administration and of Congress . . . and of the labor movement . . .are identical."

Vietnamese Students Pull Rug on Truce SAIGON (UPI) - Antigov-ernment strikes and demonstrations erupted yesterday in the ancient imperial capital of Hue just as the U.S. ambassador and the ruling Vietnamese military were reported to have ended their 21-day feud. The war itself took a strange twist: the Vietcong rebels announced they would observe a three-day truce against the government during the Vietnamese new year celebrations which begin Feb. 2. IN THE meantime, the fighting continued and a U.S. military spokesman reported two more Americans wounded Sunday when their jeep hit a mine 21 miles northwest of Saigon. An officer was wounded in the thigh and his condition was reported not serious, A sergeant suffered serious eye cuts. In Hue, 400 miles north of Saigon, 300 student demonstrators mounted bicycles and pa- (Continued on Page 2, Col. 1) Professor Airs College Faults ARE OUR universities too big and too specialized?

GOP Braintrust Party Coordinating Unit Urged WASHINGTON (AP) - Creation of a GOP braintrust including the five living winners of the Republican presidential nomination was proposed* yesterday at a meeting of the party's congressional leaders. The new group, formally tagged the Republican coordinating committee, would include various elements in the party and would be headed by Republican National Chairman Dean Burch "or whoever may occupy his office in the future." IN ADDITION to GOP presidential nominees, the committee would include the 11 Senate and House leaders, and five representatives of the Republican Governors Association. The five who carried the GOP standard in presidential campaigns are Alf M. Landon, 1936; Thomas E. Dewey, 1944-48; Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1952-56; Richard M. Nixon, 1960, and Barry Goldwater, 1964. Rep. Gerald R. Ford of Michigan, the party's new House leader, said the duty of the coordinating committee would be "to facilitate the broadest party representation and the establishment of task forces for the study and examination of major national problems and issues." He said the national committee, governors, House members, former GOP officials and academic consultants would be the sources of task force personnel. BURCH, insisting that he isn't about to leave his post, sat in with the House and Senate leaders as they mapped plans for the new council at a meeting of the party's Capitol Hill leaders. "I plan to go to Chicago as chairman of the Republican National Committee and return to Washington as chairman of the Republican National Committee," Burch said as he left. The national committee meets in Chicago Jan. 22 and 23 to chart its future plans, and decide what to do about the chairmanship. Vicar Shocked; Kids Tingle TROWBRIDGE, England (AP) - The vicar of St Thomas' Church, the Rev. J. M. C. Colbourn, got a shock when he saw the electric snogometer in the church's youth club. A snogometer is an elaborate machine for measuring the passion level of kisses. It is an invention of Malcolm Pickard, 16, a member of the vicar's youth club. TO SHOW how it works, Malcolm took the snogometer to a youth club meeting. He set it up and invited boys and girls to try it out, with kisses. In British . slang, a snog means a kiss. To operate the snogometer a boy and a girl are each given a metal handle to hold. With each clinging to a handle, they kiss. The snogometer lights up, and as the passion mounts, the hand on the dial swings through a series of degree markings. "The greater the passion," explained the young inven- tor, ber.' 'the higher the num- THE SNOGOMETER was well warmed up when the vicar visited the youth club. "I was staggered," said the vicar, but he added: "The youngsters were behaving in a sensbile way, however, and were using the machine as an added bit of fun. Nevertheless, I wouldn't like to encourage anything like this which might be in-continued on Page 11, Col. 5) Youths Burn 2 U.S. Flags In Panama From AP and UPI PANAMA CITY, Panama (UPI) - Two American flags were burned yesterday in separate anti-Ameriqan rallies marking observances of last year's Canal Zone riots. A flag was burned last night on the Panama University cam pus as 200 students missed classes to attend a hurriedly or ganized anti-U.S. rally called by the University Students Union, which includes leftists among its leaders. AFTER hearing four speakers harangue the United States the students cheered as the rally ended with the burning of the American flag. The students returned to their classes. Earlier, students burned an American flag at a high school rally in a renewal of minor disorders surrounding the first anniversary of the fighting last year. About 500 of the school's 2,000 students then marched to the presidential palace, where they demanded that President Marco A. Robles withdraw National Guard troops posted along the boundary of the U.S.-controlled Canal Zone. A SPOKESMAN for the guard said the troops would remain until a four-day observance of the first anniversary of bloody anti-American rioting ends today. The January 1964 rioting left 21 Panamanians, mostly students, and 4 U.S. soldiers killed. It erupted after Panamanian students marched into the Canal Zone to protest the refusal by U.S. Canal Zone high school students to allow the Panamanian flag to fly alongside the Stars and Stripes. Remap Problem Postponed By BILL KING GOV. GODDARD laid a < dozen problems before the new Legislature yesterday in his maiden message, saying he will call a special legislative session later to handle reapportionment. Regarding the problems of taxation and school finance, the new governor 'told the opening session of the Legislature that he will make Additional Legislative Stories on Pages 8, 10; Additional Photos on Page 18 specific recommendations soon when he returns before the lawmakers with his "budget and tax message." On more immediate problems, Goddard made these declarations: -State-federal financing of medical care for Arizona's senior citizens should be started quickly under the federal government's Kerr-Mills Act. -Obtaining congressional action to bring Colorado River water into central Arizona is urgent. -The federal antipoverty act challenges state government "to move from discussion of problems to action at the local level in order to give assistance to as many of the poverty-stricken as possible." -A governor's committee on administrative reorganization will be appointed to seek ways of making the governor's office more efficient, and legislative cooperation will be needed. -The governor's office also will call on citizen leadership to promote new industry, tourism and resources development, and only the Legislature can provide the "tools" this citizen "task force" will need. -Society remains stable "only so long as honest work brings a fajr wage. Our working environment should be safe." Rtpubiie Piwt� OPENS SESSION-Gov.

GODDARD and lawmakers were getting along fine on thteir first day together yesterday. ' Most lawmakers thought Goddard's message to the Legislature produced a concise although sketchy, summary of Arizona's problems, but they pledged their cooperation to meet the needs. A few questioned where the i "~ tax money would come from and objected to generalizations. Others expected the accord might vanish later in the nine-week legislative session. BUT GENERALLY, Goddard won applause for treading the fine line between stating the problems and telling the legislature how to run its business. His call for a special reapportionment session to remap the congressional and legislative districts met with general approval. Some lawmakers felt the regular legislature would accomplish nothing if it spent time on that thorny problem. Others liked Goddard's call for tax reform, action on old age health care, a united front to get more water, and boosting industrial growth.

"We're certainly willing to give cooperation from here," Carpenter said, adding that he was impressed by the governor's message. Over in the House, new Speaker Jack Gilbert, D-Oochise, also pledged help to fashion a forward-looking program. "He covered the broad, first-things-first problems," said Gilbert. "I'm sure he intends to bring specific recommendations to us before long." "THE GOVERNOR is very energetic, full of vitality, and up to this time has an excellent understanding of the conditions , that exist in our state," said Senate Majority Leader Harold Giss, D-Yuma. Giss said Goddard didn't try to cram any programs down the legislature's throat. The Yuma lawmaker offered his full cooperation to help the state move forward. Rep. John Haugh, R-Pima, House majority leader, found little new in the talk, but said some problems continue to exist and must be solved. "I was disappointed that he said nothing about asking Congress for a chance to apportion one house of the legislature on our own terms," Haugh added. PRAISE OF the talk, but a pessimistic view of potential results, was expressed by Rep. Robert Hutto, D-Maricopa, a spokesman for the minority Democrats. "It was a good speech, forward looking and progressive. But with the present composition of the House, I'm afraid most of it will be to no avail," Hutto said. "Status quo will be the mode of the day." A similar view was given by (Continued on Page 8, Col. 1) Astrology Bridge Comics Crossword Dedera Page Page 48 Editorials 6 Sports 48 Edit.
