Figures Show Union Members Are Weak In Registrations ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (API- Labor strategists have come up an' embarrassing statistic: union members outnumber pro- fessionals and business executives 2-1 but each group exercises about equal voting power fa national elections. Politically conscious delegates to the United Auto Workers Un- ion convention got this informa- tion before they acted to support a drive to add 20 to 30 liberal House members to Congress in the fall elections. President Ken- nedy made it plain he counts on UAW support for Democrats. President Walter Reuther and other, major UAW officers were due to be elected by the conven- tion today to new two-year terms. His slate included a Negro for the first time. Nelson (Jack) Edwards of Detroit, candidate for the UAW Executive Board, It was Reuther's brother, Roy, head of the UAW Political Action Department, who brought out the worker-executive voting standoff. He told the convention the 1960 voting and census figures show union members made up 37 per cent of the voting population but represented' only 26 per cent of the votes cast. Executives and professionals making up 18 per .cent of the eligible vote cast 26 per cent of the ballots. Roy Reuther is heading a million drive by the AFL-CIO's 130 affiliated unions to get many thousands more workers regis- tered and voting -in this fall's congressional polling. He said one out of three Americans of voting age fail to exercise their ballots. The 'UAW voted overhwleming approval to an all-out political ac- tion resolution Tuesday after hearing Kennedy make. a. major address. The President remarked that after speaking to" the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and to American Medical Association ex- ecutives he had begun to wonder how he ever got elected.

Senate Rejects Move To Limit Debate On Literacy Test Bill SH 29 Extension Gets First Okay A long-sought dream of an extension of SH 29 from its intersection with SH 18 to SH 12, a road that fills a gap in a statewide scenic highway route, has been given a big boost nearer reality. The State Highway Commission, meeting this week in Oklahoma City, approved the addition of the proposed SH 29 extension to the state highway system, vital first step in plans for the stretch of .highway. W. E, "Bill" chairman of the Highway Commission, said Wednesday the proposal to include the'road in the state- system was made by com- mission member Roy Turner and approved' unani- mously. The road to be constructed is in Turner's dis-. trict. Next step in the procedure will be completion of a A fire broke out late Tuesday afternoon at the Alamo Motel, 1200 North Broadway.
