P. Bill Atkinson worked Mon- day to line up support from followers of their defeated rivals for the Democratic nomination for governor. Gary and Atkinson are .contenders for the Democratic nomination in the May 22nd primary runoff. Both got boosts from state newspapers. The Lawton Constitution said it favored Gary, while the Oklahoma City Daily Oklahoman said it favored Gary over Atkin- son. 'Democrats of Oklahoma will make the better choice if they nominate Gary over said an editorial Oklann- Board Balks At Moving; Rent Too High OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The state Wildlife Commission said Monday that a year for rent is too much and it doesn't intend to move into the new Will Rogers capitol office building June 8. The stand was not a new one. Several months ago the commis- sion, which is now quartered on the first floor of the Capitol Build- ing, balked when the Capitol Im- provement Authority said it would have to move. An attorney general's opinion last December indicated the au- thority could force the commission to move. Commission Chairman George Knapp Jr., Tulsa, said the com- mission thinks the attorney gener- al was wrong. Besides the rent being too high, Knapp said, "they could raise the rent on 30 days notice." Knapp said it would be cheaper for the commission to build its own building. in today's Daily Oklaho- man. It added: "Gary was a capable governor who is in a position to give the state a progressive administration and avoid mistakes of the past." Atkinson has filed a million libel suit against the Daily Okla- homan in connectinn with an edi- torial printed prior to the May 1 primary election. Preston Moore and Lt. Gov. George Nigh, third and fourth place finishers respectively in the May 1 Democratic primary, have already tossed their support to the Atkinson, camp. Both plan to campaign with At- kinson in his battle against former Gov. Gary for the Democratic nomination. The nomination will be settled in the May 22nd pri- mary runoff. Atkinson was in Ardmore Mon- day night to try and rally support from those who voted for Moore, Nigh and Sen. Fred Harris. Moore and. Nigh were 'with him. Gary was in Lawton conferring with his supporters as well as those of Harris. Harris has pro- claimed his neutrality in the run- off. So has Sen. Robert Kerr.

Monday the two Democrats ap- peared before directors of the Oklahoma Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives and pledged to oppose any changes in R E A taxes or jurisdiction. Meanwhile, Dick Jones, a candi- jdate for lieutenant governor who was quoted Monday as saying he favored Wilburn Cartwright in the Democratic runoff, declared later the statement wasn't authorized. "I am he said. "I am too busy with 'my law practice to help anyone." Leo Winters faces Cartwright, a Corporation Commission member, in the Democratic runoff. He drew ovation.

House Passes Bill For Brake Standards WASHINGTON (AP) The House passed a bill Monday that would set federal standards for. hydraulic brake fluid used in mo- tor vehicles. A voice vote sent the measure to the Senate. Rep. Kenneth A. Roberts, D- Ala., sponsor of the bill, said sub-, standard brake fluids are believed responsible for many cases of- brake failure that lead to acci- dents. The bill would authorize the sec- retary of commerce to'set. the specifications and provide crimi- nal penalties of'up to one year, in jail, a fine or -both. Funds No Bargain, Probe Says Investigation Shows Third Of Buyers Pay Whopping Fees WASHINGTON (AP) Nearly one-third of those who buy certain mutual fund shares on 'the install- ment .plan wind up paying a sales commission of more than 40 per cent, according to figures, com- piled by federal securities loan in vestigators. This- point was developed at length Monday as the Securities and Exchange Commission began two weeks of public 'hearings on the sales of fund salesmen and brokerage em ployes. Fund distributors also occupied today's witness list. Representa- tives of top brokerage firms are scheduled to begin testifying' Fri: day. The hearings are part of a broad SEC study of .the.entire se- curities industry. Much -of the in- vestigation is being conducted in secret. Richard H. Paul, chief counsel for the inquiry, cited at the end of Monday's session -an SEC study of what happened to those who began installment purchases of Axe-Houghton Fund B, a popular mutual fund, .three years .ago. Paul said 29" per -cent who signed .installment contracts with Investors Planning Corp. of Amer- ica, the Axe-Houghton distributor, had either cashed in .their shares or made no monthly payments for at least a year as of last Febru- Kennedy Issues Warning To Labor On Demands For Un ary. Under questioning. Walter Benedick of President Investors Planning estimated that about of every paid by these install- ment buyers represented sales charges. This would mean the buyer was paying sales charges for in shares, a 40 per cent commission.; Although Paul did not" say. so. the SEC believes many fund'sales- men have been less than diligent about informing .their customers of sales charges. Investors in mutual funds buy proportionate interests in diversi- fied portfolios of common stocks and other securities. The funds, which have grown in asset value from billion .'to billion in the past six years, are especial- ly popular with small investors. They provide professional man- agement, and a hedge against the. risks that might accompany in- vestment, 'in a few -individual stocks.

Wage Increases UAW Hears President Promise Same Standard Used Against Industry ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. Kennedy told labor today that "unjustified wage demands which re-. quire price increases" are as much against the national interest as "unjustified profit demands which require price increases." He said, "I speak with-a single voice to the men on both sides of the nation's bargaining tables when I say that your sense of responsibility the responsibility of both labor and management to the general public is the foundation on which our hopes must build for the survival and success of the free enterprise system." The President, in a speech prepared for the United Auto Workers convention, said the administration would not undertake to fix.prices and wages in a peacetime economy but that it must define goals and point out the national interest.
