The amendment was rejected 41-40. Before the final roll call, Dem- ocratic floorleader Robert Huber of West Allis described the bill as the only remaining solution, to Wisconsin's financial deadlock. He said both parties "have to swallow pretty hard" to vote for Ihe measure.

To give Congress a chance to act, the railroads have postponed again until Aug. 29 the new work rules which will eliminate thou- sands of jobs and which the unions have said will trigger a nation- ide strike. Representatives of the five op- erating unions continued their tes- timony Monday in opposition to President Kennedy's recommen- dations for averting a strike by turning the dispute over to the Interstate Commerce Commission.

Joseph G. McCarthy, the driver, said he had no suspicion that the well-dressed passenger he waited for outside the bank had looted the place in the about five min- utes he was absent. Tha raider firsl asked to cash check. When William J. Ryan a vice president offered to help him, (he man pulled a gun, ordered Mrs. Jane Ashenbrenner, a teller, to fill a brief case he carried with currency. As she complied, the holdup man, brandishing the pistol, told Ryan, Mrs. Ashenbrenner and Mrs. Sharon Horan, a neighboring teller to "take it easy and don't attract attention." He then zipped up the case after putting the gun back into it with the money and stepped back into the taxi. McCarthy said he had picked the man up at the bus depot, had been ordered to drive to Nicollel and Lake. But a block from the bank at Blaisdell and Franklin, the pas- ln senger had the driver pull, saying he wanled to cash a check. McCarthy said Ihe man ap- peared unhurried when he came out. He left the taxi at Blaisdell and 28th St., eight blocks south of the robbery scene. letter from President Kennedy lo Soviet Premier Khrushchev, but it is expected lo be only a reply to the message Khrushchev sent lo Kennedy via Undersecretary of State W. Averell Harriman. Khrushchev's letter, high rank- ing sources said, expressed his satisifacfion wilh the agreement to ban all nuclear tests except underground but did not offer any suggestions on further steps to ease East-West tensions. Kennedy's reply is expected to express similar feelings without attempting to break new ground. Stale Department officials de- nied any thought is being given to a meeting between-. Kennedy, Khrushchev and Prime Minister Harold Macmillan of Great Brit- ain. That possibility was mentioned by a Lord Hailsham, British ne- gotiator at Ihe test ban treaty talks in Moscow. Officials here pointed to Ken- nedy's remark at a press con- ference July 17 that "there is no evidence that a summit is indi- cated or needed." Also, U.S. officials don't believe Khrushchev himself wanls a sum- mit meeting now.
