Secretary of Labor W. Wil- lard Wirtz conceded as much Monday when he announced that the federal government once again is stepping in to try to mediate the dispute, now nearly five years old. Wirtz, Assistant Secretary of Labor 'James J. Reynolds and Chairman Francis A. O'Neil Jr. of the National Mediation Board meet today in closed ses- sion with the railroads and five operating brotherhoods. Wirtz met late Monday with T 1 Johnson Will r Outline Goals To Congress High Priority After Pilgrimage then with both sides.

On Feb. 25 a congressional deadline for settlement of the so-called secondary sues not settled last November by compulsory arbitration runs out and a nationwide rail strike could begin. The issues involved in the current negotiations include such topics as wage structure, certain road and yard jobs, in- terdivisional runs, use of self- propelled equipment, night shift differentials, holiday pay and expenses away from home. Wirtz hedged, on any predic- tion that an agreement could be reached and said he hadn't talked to the negotiators about how much progress they had made' in their weeks of bar- gaining. There were strong indications earlier from Chicago that prog- ress has been slight. H. E.

The state dispenses mil- ion a year under the present programs. The Regents urged Monday in announcing their 1964 legislative program that the maximum scholar incentive grants be raised from to a year for undergraduates. The ceiling on the Regents scholarships should be lifted from to a year, the Regents said. The state awards the scholar- ships to graduates every high school year on the basis of competitive examina- tions. Eligibility for scholar-incen- tive- payments extends to al most all New York SUte resi- dents attending colleger i in the state at which tuition is J200 or more a year.

Unconfirmed reports that such a move would be made by the administration have been current for weeks in congres- sional circles. They have come lo the atten- tion of Rep. Otto E. Passman, D-La., who heads an appropria- tions subcommittee which had handled all foreign aid funds for years and who has led the fight to cut foreign spending. "There is some Passman said in an interview, "that they are going to try to scatter foreign aid funds all over the new budget. They are nut going to get away with it. This is simply an indication that the requests for new funds are not on solid ground." Passman warned that "the new team in the executive branch may have to learn the VATICAN CITY Paul VI returned to his Vatican desk today after his historic Holy Land pilgrimage and re portedly began work on the first encyclical of his seven month reign.

Informants said experts would help draw up the encyclical, timed apparently to coincide with the 400th anniversary this year of the birth of Galileo Ga- lilei, 16th century Italian as tronomer and experimental phi losopher.
