VOL. 18 MiMliK ASSOCIATED PRIM OSWEGO-FULTON, N.Y., MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 1961 YEAR DAILY PRIIE SEVEN CENTS TWO-WEEK-OLD HARBOR STRIKE ENDS Paralyzing Rail Tieup Ends; Agreement Reached After Marathon Session; Goldberg Praised NEW YORK UP) A two- week-old harbor strike that had caused a paralyzing rail- road tie-up throughout much of the East was ended today by tentative agreement on a new work pact. Mediators, including Presi- dent Kennedy's new secretary of labor, Arthur J. Goldberg, met in a marathon 14-hour session that ended with the announcement of a settlement at a. m. strike of railroad tug and ferry boat workers against 11 railroads that operate in New York harbor had crippled the city's com- muter transportation, forcing persons to look for other means of getting to and from work. The walkout of the 664 workers in three marine unions on Jan. 10 had also vir- tually shut down the New York Central and the New Haven railroads. Both roads said they hoped to get back into operation by Tuesday morning. The unions have called a ratification meeting for later in the day at the Seafarers International Union headquar- ters in Brooklyn. Bofh sides were expected to okay the pact. Both Mayor Robert F Wag- ner and Gov. Nelson Rocke- feller, who had invited Gold- berg to attend the session, praised the new labor secre- tary for his contribution to the settlement. Goldberg flew to New York less than 24 hours after he had been sworn into Ken- nedy's Cabinet. The key to the settlement was an agreement to postpone the touchy issue of job secur- ity. The unions had asked to have present five-man tug crews remain frozen. But operators wanted any new contract to state that man- agement had the right to de- cide the number of men need- ed. Both sides finally agreed to defer any decision until next December when a White house study on railroad-manning problems is completed. The striking marine unions, besides the Seafarers, were Marine Engineers Beneficial Association and the Interna- tional Organization of Mas- ters, Mates and Pilots. After Seafarer pickets showed up at the big union terminal in Cleveland, Ohio, Sunday, the na- tion's second cally shut down its Western division. Its -Eastern division had been hit last week. The idle train crews were not directly involved in the dispute, but they refused to cross marine picket lines. Most of the Central s re- maining passenger and freight trains w-ere canceled Saturday night by the extension of picketing to stations or I yards at Albany, Syracuse and Niagara Falls. Passenger trains between Albany and Boston over the Central's Boston Albany division were among those suspended Saturday. Passengers of the Pennsyl- vania Railroad boarded trams in freight yards near Buffalo, while the Delaware Hudson which reduced schedules to Montreal, was plagued by a freight derailment at Balls- ton Spa that blocked the road's two tracks. The Central said over the weekend that it planned these passenger runs on a when-and- if basis: Daily round trips, "subject to between Syracuse and Watertown and between Utica and Massena. Daily trips between Albany and Poughkeepsie and between Albany and Chatham, Col- umbia County, "if crews are available." In Buffalo, the Pennsylvania transported passengers by bus from the picketed Central terminal to freight yards at Ebenezer. where its trains originated to points in Penn- sylvania '.la Olean. The was operating its Laurentian only between Al- bany and Montreal. The Laurentian normally continues over Central tracks to New York City, as does the line's Montreal Limited, which was dropped during the strike. The also planned to retain its daily Albany-Bing- hamton and Albany-Saratoga Springs runs. The Erie-Lackawanna. the Lehign and the Nickel Plate reported normal operations out of Butfalo, as did The Pennsylvania's freight runs through western New Yoik. Seven Killed, Many Injured in Fire At Sea Aboard U.S. Carrier Saratoga Kennedy Starts Review Of National Security Program WASHINGTON Presi- dent Kennedy and his new ad- ministration's top defense and diplomatic officials today start- ed a far-reaching review of the national security program. Seeking a safeguarded peace with the Communist bloc, Ken- nedy began talks with key aides at mid-morning and ar- ranged to resume the discus- sions after a recess for lunch. Sitting in with the President at the conference in the Cab- inet room at the White House were Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Secretary of Defense Robert S. MeNamara. -Afoo on-hand were McGeorge Bundy, Kennedy's personal aide on national security matters; Under-secretary of State-des- ignate Chester Bowles, and Paul Nitze, designated assist- ant secretary of state in charge of international affairs, includ- ing disarmament planning. Also presenJLwas_Gen. Ly- man L. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Pierre Salinger, White House press secretary, said several other officials were joining in the discussions. He did not immediately name them. The double only announced business on his age'nda today demonstrated the priority Kennedy attaches to seeking an easin? of East- West tension while beefing up the nation's defenses. A grim reminder of troubles ahead reportedly came in a secret message from Ambassa- dor Llewellyn E. Thompson who met Saturday in Moscow with Soviet Premier Khru- shchev. Thompson's cable was under- stood to report that Khru- talking hopeful- ly of an agreement with the Kennedy administration in privatf had adopted the same tough, unyielding position on issues that wrecked previous Western hopes. Kennedy got a preview dur- ing a White House luncheon Sunday of Rusk's thinking (Continued on Page Three) Another Cold Night Ahead For Most of N.Y.

At least two nominees face some opposition. The Cabinet was sworn in Saturday afternoon a short time after it won Senate ap- proval. Sen. Wayne Morse, served notice he was opposed to the selection oi John B. Conally Jr. of Texas as the new secretary of the Navy be- cause of his past ties with the oil industry. Sen Norns Cotton, has announced he is against ap- proval of Chester Bowles as un- dersecretary of state. Bowles, a former member of the House, was a foreign policy adviser to Kennedy during the campaign. Cotton questions Bowies' at- titude toward future relations with Red China, although the nominee lias testified he op- 'poses immediate recognition of the Communist Chinese regime or its admission to the United Nations. Majority Leader Mike Mans- field. put senators on notice he hoped to com- plete confirmation today on all ot the Kennedy nominees who have been approved by com- mittees. The Senate voted Saturday to confirm Adlai E. Stevenson as U. S. ambassador to the United Nations. He took his oath with the Cabinet members during a White Hou.se cere- mony. The only opposition to the Cabinet was that Sen. Gordon Allott. to the nomi- nation of the President's bro- ther, Robert F. Kennedy, to be attornty general. AlJott said Kennedy did not have enough legal experience for the post. Morse's opposition to Con- nally, longtime associate ol Vice President Lyndon B. John- son, came after the Senate Armed Services Committee had approved him and eight other Defense Department appoint- ments. Sen William Proxmire, (D- and John S. Cooper, (R- told the Senate they shared Morse's view on the Connally nomination. Morse said others also are opposed. Other nominations ready for Senate consideration include: Byron R. White, deputy at- torney general; Archibald Cox, solicitor general: H. W. Braw- ley, deputy postmaster gener- al; Roswell L. GUpatric. deputy secretary of defense: Elvis J. Stahr Jr.. secietary of Army; Eugene M. Zuckert, secretary of the Air Force; Carles J. Hitch, Paul H. Nitze, Arthur Sylvester and Thomas D. Mor- ris, assistant secretary of de- fense; Cyrus R. Vance, general counsel of the Defense Depart- ment. State University Expansion, State Aid to Private Colleges, Under Study ALBANY aid for church-sponsored and other private colleges is part of a higher-education program that goes before the Legislature's Republican majorities today. The program also calls for expansion of the State Univer- sity and more state scholar- ships as part of a broad plan to meet what educators term a crisis in higher education. Gov. Rockefeller and GOP leaders are drafting the pro- gram to help public and private colleges expand in the face of rapidly rising demands for ad- mission. Senate Majority Leader Wal- ter J. Mahoney and Assembly Speaker Joseph F. Carlino call- ed Republican members of .their housts into separate con- ferences. Today's discussions were to be informal. GOP leaders will report to Rockefeller Tuesday on rank-and-file reaction to the proposals. A final vote is not expected for weeks. The plan for state help to church-affiliated schools is ex- pected to stir controversy among both Republicans and Democrats. The state Constitu- tion bars state aid to schools run by churches. Rockefeller and legislative leaders have been exploring ways of giving state aid direct- ly to students at private schools. They would turn it over to their respective institu- tions through higher tuition. Thii method, some Republicans say, would not conflict with the constitutional ban. No final decisions on the form of aid have been reached. Rockefeller plans to submit a formal program on higher education to the Legislature in a special message, possibly this week. The governor spent much of the weekend attempting to help settle a strike by railroad tugmen in New York City. Picketing by marine unions has stalled railroad service throughout much of the East. The governor's schedule has been thrown off by his activ- ities in connection with the and his education mes- sage may be delayed, a spokei- man uid Sunday. TOKYO announce- ment from Peiping indicates unrest and sabotage brought on by a drastic shortage of food is bringing new drives against opponents of the Red regime. A voluminous communique issued after a meeting Jan. 14- 18 of the top Chinese command in Peiping referred again and again to the food shortage, which was blamed on the "most severe natural calamities in a century following upon serious natural calamities of 1959." The Communists reported last month that 150 million acres were hit by these calami- ties. No figures were listed in the latest report, but it left no doubt about the seriousness of the problem. The official New China News Agency reported a_ four-day cold wave m Kwangtung Pro- vince, South China, destroyed part of the winter crop, es- pecially sweet potatoes, a sta- ple food of the toiling masses. The Peiping communique said, the argricultural setback led to a shortage of raw mater- ials for light industry. The leaders ordered that new sources of material along with increased production be achiev- ed to "ensure the supply of the people's daily necessities as far as possible." "The tasks in 1961 are extra- ordinarily great and the communique said, "but the difficulties can be overcome" The Communists claimed that NAVY PROBES AIR CRASH HONOLULU in- vestigators tried to learn today why a huge Constellation crash- ed in flames Sunday, taking nine lives on Midway Island. Sixteen members of the 22- man crew of the 70-ton radar picket plane survived with minor injuries.

A Barber's Point Naval Air Station spokesman said the Hawaii-based plane touched down, swerved suddenly, flipped on its back and burst into flames as it smashed into the truck. more than 90 per cent of the population is loyal to the Red regime and is putting up with their "temporary difficulties." However, it reported "an ex- tremely small number of land- lord and bourgeois elements have not yet been sufficiently remolded and are always at- tempting a comeback." This element was charged with taking advantage of the difficulties, along with shortcoming in the work at the lower level to carry out sabo- taging activities." The communique added that China had a few minor Com- munist party officials who "al- though good-willed and well-in- tentioned, are inadequate in their ideology consciousness." "They lack understanding of the fundamental policies of the party -and the communique said, reporting a sort of back-tp-school move- ment called rectification.
