Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen I said op posing Senate forces were coming out of all corners shooting over a bill to set up a sevenrfiember board to arbi trate the fouryearold dispute With one key exception the House bill was similar to the Senate version It would not subject the socalled secondary issues to arbitration The Sen ate bill would provide for arbi tration of these matters if no agreement was reached by col lective bargaining within 30 days Both would provide that the two primary issues the need for firemen on freight and yard service d i e s e 1 s and overall makeup of train re solved by arbitration binding on both the unions and the carriers Like the Senate bill the House legislation dropped Pres ident Kennedys proposal that the Interstate Commerce Com mission be handed the problem of settling the dispute While the House measure would not allow the arbitration board to touch issues beyond the questions of firemen and crews it would forbid a strike over secondary disputes for 150 days after the bill was enacted If both chambers passed a different bill it would require setting up a HouseSenate con ference committee to work out a compromise This could
