Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma STATE SENATORS URGE SPECIAL SESSION THE ADA EVENING NEWS 59TH YEAR NO. 86 ADA, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1962 18 Pages 5 CENTS WEEKDAY, 10 CENTS SUNDAY Engineer Strike Threat Is Over WASHINGTON (AP) Settle-1 That had been the crux of the ment of the engineers' strike threat against Trans World Air- lines was announced today by Secretary of Labor Arthur' J. Goldberg after an all-night bar- gaining session in his victory for who had termed, the threatened shutdown a menace to the national econo- my, provides for orderly reduc- tion of jet plane crews from four men to three. The settlement, a President Kennedy dispute, with the engineers insist- ing on terms which would main- tain their cockpit job rights. The TWA agreement is expect- ed to lift the threat of grounding the planes of two other major air- lines, Pan American World Air- ways and Eastern Airlines, which face the same problem of reduc- ing crew numbers. Goldberg told reporters the pact protects the jobs of the 600 TWA members of the Flight Engineers Falls May Become Satellite Of Platt SULPHUR (Staff) Expan- sion of Platt National Park here, when and if it comes, will prob- ably be through the acquisition of "satellite areas" separate from the present park, local banker Glen Key told the NEWS today. Key has just returned from Washington, where he was a member of a delegation attend- ing a Senate hearing on the pro- posed Lake of the Arbuckles. After the hearing, the group, accompanied by Sen, Mike Mon- roney, met informally with of- ficials of the Department of In- terior and the National Park Service. Key said he found a "definite interest up there" in the pro- posed expansion. "They've apparently done con- siderable preliminary thinking 'on Key added. "I was sur- prised at the amount'of informa- tion on the area they had at their fingertips." Federal officials, according (to Key's observation, are not in- clined to add to the present park area but would be more likely to recommend acquiring various separate spots of. scenic or recreational value. Such satellite-areas would be administered by the Park Serv- ice out of Sulphur. Possible sites. Key went on, might include Turner Falls and the Cool Creek area in the Ar- buckle Mountains. The latter, Key said, is much favored by geology classes for field trips but is now difficult of access, without even a road'leading in- to it. Key said the officials suggest- ed the local citizens assemble information and .make recom- mendations to help guide them in the selection of possible sites. Recreational areas provided by the Lake of the Arbuckles might also be included in such an expansion program, Key noted. The million' Arbuckle pro- posal has been approved by the House and awaits only Senate action to make it a reality. Key said members of the Senate committee reacted and added that with both Sen. Monroney and Sen. Robert S. Kerr much interested in the project he hoped for final action very soon. Rusk Arrives To Look Over Berlin Problems International Association and as- sures the continued identity .of their union. Signs that an agreement was near appeared early in the day. The agreement, initialed at' 10 a.m. by weary bargainers who have been in almost continuous session since Monday, is subject to ratification by the engineers. But approval is taken for granted by union officers here. Goldberg described the terms as noninflationary and said that by providing for orderly crew re- duction they will produce savings for the airline many times great- er than whatever wage and work- ing conditions terms are fixed in negotiations still to come. The latter issues were disposed of in this fashion: The parties will .negotiate for one week; at the end of that time any issue not resolved will be set- tled by procedures to be specified by Nathan P. Feinsinger, special mediator in the case; the union and the airline have -agreed to ac- cept his recommendations and're- frain from striking. The settlement assures the en- gineers, who must now qualify as pilots, that they will have top pri- ority for assignment as the third man in the cockpit with, two pilots. It also provides assurance, Goldberg said, that the engineers' union will not be swal- lowed up in the Air Line Pilots Association as bar- gaining representative for its members. The spokesman for the en neers. Attorney Asher Schwartz, said the pact assures his organ- ization "greater assurance in their jobs as flight'engineers than they-have ever contract. Vice President David Crombie of TWA, who initialed for. the company, said the .airline is "gratified at the successful, con- clusion of these most difficult ne- gotiations" and paid tribute to the nelp of Goldberg, Undersecretary Willard Wirtz and Feinsinger.

Nurse In Salt Poison Deaths Gets Job Back BINGHAMTON, N.Y. practical nurse, who figured prom- inently in the case of six babies who died of salt poisoning, says her reinstatement by Binghamton General Hospital makes her "just feel like shouting." "I prayed it would turn out this Lillie Mae Colvin, a licensed practical nurse who ex- pects her fourth child in Septem- ber. Hospital officials have said Mrs. Colvin apparently got salt, instead of sugar, last March when she went to the city-owned hospital's main kitchen to refill the sugar canister used in preparation of in- fants' formula. A total of 14 babies received salt-laden formula. Six of them died in the space of four days. The others survived. Mrs. Colvin, who has insisted she made no error, was notified Wednesday of her reinstatement, Mrs. Colvin, the hospital said, receive back pay for the riod from March 11, when she was suspended, to May 27.

He was speaking at a ceremony in .West Berlin's City Hall, where he signed the golden visitors' book visit to the than 100 during a threatened city, more 'a statesmanlike agreement.' In a statement released by White House press secretary Pi- erre Salinger, Kennedy said com- pany officers, union -officials and government mediators who took part in marathon sessions lead- ing to the! settlement "are deserv- ing of praise." A strike, poised for more than a week, was held off only moment to moment as the negotiators went over terms of a settlement pro- posal offered as the 2 p.m. strike deadline Goldberg.

Edmondson Says Decision Hinges On House Views OKLAHOMA CITY majority of the state Sen- ate urged 'Gov. J. Howard Edmondson today to call a special session of the legislature this summer to attempt reapportionment as ordered by the special federal court on a population basis. Edmondson thanked the senators for "this expression of your views" but said he still may wait several days before reaching a.final decision. The governor 'said his decision will depend on what both the House and Senate think should and.can be done in light of the court's historic ruling Tuesday that city folks are being discriminated against by present appor- tionment laws. He repeated that the decision will hinge on whether or not there is a reasonable chance of the legislature writing a new law which is based principally on popula- tion and is acceptable to the court. House Speaker J. D. McCarty, Oklahoma City, conferred with Edmondson Wednesday flight and told him he thinks the House could write a reasonable reapportion- ment law if called into special session.

'At' his first 40-minute tour of West Berlin immediately after flying in from Paris, he declared himself deeply impressed and added "we will find a way to break it down." After seeing the walled-in Bran- denburg Gate, the city's symbol, he said: "It is a very impressive the long story of human history must bring to right." The gate 'is now cut off from the West by a massive antitank wall.
