and respect of most of her subjects throughout the empire Victoria often was the target of her own people Throughout her reign the great white queen refused to be persuaded either by the views of her conservative party statesmen demanded a federation of the parliaments of the empire or by her liberal statesmen who wanted the colonies to become independent and go their own ways The result was that Queen Victoria as the sovereign ruler was left as the sole official bone of the entire empire SHE NEVER ceased to em phasize the personal nature o this bond In the queens palaces there was no color bar She sur rounded herself with Indian serv ants And when black brown yellow and red citizens from her empire came to London she re ceived them with great friend liness and entertained them in a regal manner This steadfast refusal by Queen Victoria to regard the many dif ferent races of people in her em pire as being in any way inferior to the people of England resulted in her being more loved and respected throughout the emjpire than at home in Britain Queen Victoria became for one quarter of the human race the source of law and order and the intermediary who stood between them and corrupt and overbear ing officialdom That view of the British sover eign by the common people of the empire has remained largely un changed Rudolf Noureev shouted to startled French police as he ar

iions 990ship merchant fleet and hamper industry across the nation The walkout affected every type of US commercial vessel from ocean liners to oil tankers on the Atlantic Gulf and Paci fic coasts President Kennedy pressed for a quick settlement but there was no indication of an early agreement on a new unionman agement contract The walkout could affect transportation of oil to seaboard areas but the petroleum indus try said there was a 40day supply on hand on the East Coast INDUSTRY SOURCES said the stores consisted of 11141000 barrels of residual fuel oil in1 30256000 barrels of light fuel oil 472000 barrels of gasoline and 10876000 barrels of kerosene including commercial jet fuel Ships at sea continued on their normal course but were scheduled to tie up once they reached United

by the International Long shoremans Union union oil work ers and central labor councils in 30 ports A major issue in the dispute is the union demand for a right to organize and represent the crews of Americanowned ships that fly socalled flags of convenience Most of these 450 ships are tank ers registered under the flags of Liberia Panama and Honduras The unions call them runaway ships with lower pay and in ferior working conditions com pared to Americanflag ships with union crews SAME
