A government report said the crew made a distance-judg- ing error. The Civil Aeronautics Board said in an accident.re- port that the probable cause of the fiery collision was that the United Air Lines DCS flew beyond the area for which it had been cleared, a holding pattern over Pres- ton, NJ. Contributing factors, the CAB said, was the plane's high rate of speed and a new routing issued just before the accident by the New York air route traffic con- trol center. A United spokesman said the report had just been received, and there .would be no comment until executives have studied it.

On blazing impact, the United liner plunged into a crowdec Brooklyn neighborhood and six persons on the ground perished. The TWA plane came down in flames in an open field on Staten Island. Of the 128 persons aboard the two planes the sole survivor was a boy, but he died later of injuries. After a lengthy investigation the CAB today issued its report, tracing the flight patterns of the two planes and attempting to assess the causes of the disaster. It found that when the DCS crew informed the Idlewild approach control station that it was coming on the intersection the plane actually was some nine miles beyond the point, to the northeast. This and other factors, the CAB said, "alltend to support the con- clusion that the crew believed they had not yet reached the Preston station when the collision occurred."

Engineers, Pilots Agree To Sit Down Together To Discuss Dispute Over Jobs WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of Labor Arthur J. Goldberg opened new peace talks today aimed at avert- ing a threatened flight engineers' strike Tuesday after- noon on Trans World Airlines. At Goldberg's request the Air Line Pilots Association, rival to the flight, engineers in a dispute over jet plane cockpit jobs, sent along a team of negotiators. H. S. Dietrich, chairman of the engineers' TWA chap- ter, failed to show up for the start .of the talks. Goldberg's office said he sent word he would be'late. The engineers were represented by an attorney, Asher Scwartz, New York. Working with Goldberg for a TWA settlement were Undersecre- tary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz and' Nathan P. Feinsinger, Wis- consin University' law professor and a special government medi- ator. Sunday the engineers withdrew strike threats on Pan American World Airways and' Eastern Air Lines and decided to concentrate 'or the moment on TWA. The TWA strike was set for 2 p.m. (EOT) Tuesday. Last week the Flight Engineers International Association, AFL- CIO, postponed a strike against TWA and two other major car-1 riers, Pan American World Air- ways and Eastern Air Lines, while Goldberg and a team of federal mediators tried to work out a set- iement. The talks failed, but President Kennedy issued a -stern warning to the flight engineers to settle the dispute without a strike. Union President R. A. Brown took .note.of the President's ad- monition in a statement Sunday. He said the strike would'be lim- ited to TWA- "out of respect for the concern of-the President over, the balance of payments situation and -our--concern- for the- unem- ployment hardships which would be inflicted on a large number of airline employes." Brown said the strike would spread to Pan American and Eastern only if they "engage in an illegal lockout in the hope of achieving .government interven- tion, seizure of the airlines and compulsory arbitration." He said could take on TWA's domestic and overseas passenger load. The line carries slightly'more than 10 per cent of overseas-bound travel and serv- ices 18 foreign countries as.well as 70 points across the United States. Any -reduction in the num- ber of foreigners using 'U.S: air- lines would disrupt the balance of payments situation just-that much lore. The decision to strike TWA was made after a meeting of 400 flight engineers in New York City. -Ex- cept for Goldberg's call for a.con- (Continued on Pagt Two) Science Eyes New Discovery ST.

Dr. Gordon's group is employ- ing a form of chicken leukemia in exploring use of the technique as a cancer therapy tool. This re- search is supported by the Na- tional Cancer Institute. It could prove important because anti growth substances used to fight cancer cannot be used on a child without drastically affecting growth and general health. Provided the technique could be used on humans without ill effect, a child's growth could be arrested treatment of cancer effected, and the child's growth processes could then be resumed. The researchers stumbled upon. the growth arresting technique during an experiment in nutrition and continued it. Dr. Machlin said "out of curiosity as much as any- thing." U. S.
