The value of the vanished grain was about million. The shortages are the aggregate of 11 individual in stances previously reported. In eight of the cases, the government has asked federal courts to appoint receivers for the warehouses' and to issue restraining orders against further handling of grain by the warehousemen More than two billion bushels o, government-owned surplus grains are stored in commercial ware- houses and in government bins.

A similar bill has passed the House. The project would provide wa- ter for Ardmore, Davis, Sulphur, Wynncwood, and the Kerr-McGee Oil Refinery. It also would pro- vide flood control, fish and wild- life, and recreation benefits, in- cluding provisions for a national wildlife habitat. Arbuckle dam and reservoir would be built on Rock Creek, a tributary of the Washita River, 6 miles southwest of Sul- phur. The earthen dam would be about feet long. The reservoir storage capacity would provide about 16.5 million gallons of water a day. Cost of the dam and reservoir is estimated at million, the re- mainder of the total cost being for fish and "wildlife purposes, 'the wa- ter facilities, and recreation. weeks ahead as declining grain supplies are pulling much grain out of storage for commercial use. The declining supplies re- flect cutbacks in production anc increases in use, both at home and abroad. Officials expressed confidence that no financial losses would re- sult for the government. Many small losses occur from time to time, reflecting shrinkage in the weight of the grain during stor- age as well as handling losses. Both of these are normal and do not represent wrongdoing on the part of the warehouse operator. The eight cases on which court action has been taken included: Blissfield, Sons, Inc., shortage of about bushels of corn. Monroe, Haddix Sons Inc., shortage of about 000 bushels of corn.

Leadership Attempts Debate Cut WASHINGTON (AP) Senate leaders plan to point an uncertain itation of debate at a small squad of filibusterers trying to talk to death the administration's communi- cations satellite bill. Sen. George A.

How- ever, it's been 35 years since the Senate last agreed to limit debate and thus force a vote on measure. Sen.

I Court Asks Reasons 1963 Session Shouldn't Get Task Murrah Asks Why Special Term Of Legislature Wasn't Called For Reapportionment Legislators Looked Like Defendants By JIM MONROE OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The legislature seemed, in a sense, to be on trial. And the score of senators and House members who sat in a federal courtroom here today and listened to lengthy arguments on re- apportionment seemed to be playing the role of defend- ant. When the hearing started, they sat stiffly and unsmiling. The outlook did not appear too bright. In its historic June 19 or- der the three-man federal court wiped out all Oklahoma appor- tionment laws and indicated it might reapportion the state leg- islature this summer if the leg- islature did not do the job itsel immediately. This would wipe out the May primaries and the nominations to new terms just won by many of the lawmakers present. Then the picture began' to change.: Chief Justice1 A. P. Mur- rah of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals said time and again he thought the court should stay its land until after' the regular 196! session if legislators "can be trusted" to reapportion themselv- es. The keyed-up legislators relaxed a little. It seemed to them the court finally was.beginning to un- derstand' their s'ide somewhat! "We ought to be given a chance a do it said Sen.1 Ray Fine, Gore, who sat on the back row in the courtroom. He and Sen. Boyd Cowden, Chandler, pointed out they had called on the governor to convene a special reapportionment session his summer. "He's the only one that can call a special said Cowden. 'We told the governor we were to assume our duties." "They shouldn't be questioning our good faith: They should be questioning his." Norman Reynolds, attorney for Gov. J. Howard Edmondson, told he court a special session would lave been called if legislators had agreed to reapportion according to the court order. "Because of his questionnaires and his conversations with legis- ators, he knows it would have >een a vain and useless thing to call a special Reynolds said. "They would not reapportion n accordance with this court's or- der." Veteran attorney Sid White, rep- (Continucd on Two) OKLAHOMA CITY special 3-judge federal court indicated today the 1963 Oklahoma Legislature may be given a chance to reapportion itself. "What we are concerned with is whether the 1963 I legislature can be trusted to reapportion in accordance with the mandate of this said Judge A. P. Murrah, presiding judge. "As far as I'm concerned, if it can, I think it should, be given that Murrah said. He made his re- mark shortly before the court recessed until p.m. Nub of the argument between attorneys appeared to be whether the court's June 19 decree that Oklahoma apportionment laws were null and void would affect the November general elec- tion. Fred Hansen, acting state attor- ney general, was called before the judges to give his opinion on i whether the November general election would be an integral part of the election process which be gan with the filing of 'candidates in February. Hansen indicated he felt the No- vember general election was but one step in the over-all .election process. He also reiterated that he did not think it was the court's intention to knock out the May primary elections in its 19 decree. Murrah said the court put great weight in what Hansen said as acting -attorney general. John. Wagner, attorney for the state Election Board! took issue Foot UNITED NATIONS, N. Y, (AP) Sir Hugh. Foot, U.N, delegate of Britain's conserva- tive government told Monday how he gets along with hit brothers, Liberal Dingle Fool and left-wing Michael Foot. Sir Hugh, himself a long- lime nonpolitlcal civil servant, >aid: "In my family, we have the accepted principle that none of my brothers accepts reponsi- blllty for the views of the oth- ers. The principle we adopted Is, in fact, that the left foot knoweth not what the right Sub Union Votes On New Pact GROTON, Conn. shipyard workers at Electric Boat Division of General Dynam- ics Corp. vote today on a proposed three-year contract1 Acceptance of the pact by the production workers would end a 13-day walkout that has tied up construction of 11 nuclear mb- with the contention' that reappqr- fionmeni should'be left to theJ963 ession. Wagner stated no election had been'held'yet .to select office hold- ers and termed primaries "a de- vice to facilitate selection of can- didates by their parties." Murrah indicated as the hear- ing opened this, morning that un- less the court is shown facts why it should not leave the matter to the 1963'legislature, that is what it will do. Sid White, attorney for Hairy Moss, whose suit triggered the in- itial federal court decree calling Oklahoma apportionment laws null and.void, argued heatedly against leaving the matter to the next legislature. "That would be sending us tied hand and foot into the hands of our said White. In its -initial order, the court suggested a special session-of the legislature for the purpose of re- apportionment "We don't know why it wasn't said Judge Murrah. He said he expected facts to be shown the court on why the spe- cial session wasn't convened. Norman- Reynolds, attorney for Gov. J. Howard Edmondson, said he special session wasn't called because most of the legislators in- dicated it would be a waste of money and they wouldn't agree to reapportion mainly on the basis of population. Reynolds argued: "Chaos will result if some action isn't taken." He said the next session would not legally constituted- since the court has already termed Okla- loma apportionment laws null and void. Judge Murrah repeatedly called "or facts to substantiate the con- entions of Reynolds and White, especially on the point of why Ed- mondson did not call a special session. U. S.

Electric Boat is offering raises of 7 cents hi the first year of the contract, 7 cents in the second year and 9 cents in the third year For a total of 23 cents. The com- pany values improved fringe bene- fits at 2 to 3 cents an hour. Wage levels among production workers vary according to craft hour. On the crucial seniority ques- tion, the period in which the com- pany could lay off workers with- out regard to length of employ- ment was reduced from seven years to four. After four years, layoffs will be solely on the basis of seniority.

(AP Doctors Believe Thalidomide Killed New York Baby By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New York City has reported what may be the nation's first in- fant involving the drug thal- idomide, -.suspected cripplcr of new-born babies. And an Arizona television star has been turned down by a judge in her attempt to get a legal' abor- tion because -she fears her child may be born deformed as a re- sult of her taking the drug. As these developments were re- corded Monday, the American Medical Association launched com- prehensive research to try to de- termine what -the sedative-acting drug does to unborn infants. A congressional" hearing'was set for Wednesday to look into what one senator called indications of "serious. communication weak- nesses" involving information on, the drug's 'suspected crippling power. The announcement came on the heels of a report by the Food and Drug Administration that thalido- mide-pills had been distributed to doctors in 39 states and the Dis- trict of Columbia. They were not sold commercially. In one of the states, the New York City Health Department said a 37-year-old Queens woman, who reportedly took 90 thalidomide pills before and during pregnancy, gave birth July 21 to a deformed baby which lived only-about 40 minutes. .In Phoenix, Ariz. Superior Court Judge Yale McFate dismissed a suit by television personality Sher- rrFinkbine who sought to legalize the abortion-she had "Miss star of a Phoe- nix kiddie show, took thalidomide, which has been blamed for mal- formation of thousands of new- born mostly in Europe. Mrs. Finkbirie arid her husband said -they didn't want to risk such a birth. The couple said, today go they 'a more favorable legal seek an abortion. Arizona Woman Says She'll Move To Get Abortion, Page 5 All 50-states prohibit abortions. Arizona, and some others, allow exceptions only if the life of the mother is endangered. The judge noted that Arizona law concerning abortion was not challenged in Mrs. Finkbine's suit. He said the plaintiff sought only to have the court determine that a "miscarriage" was necessary to save Mrs. Finkbine's life. McFate added that'the suit con- tained no controversy and there- fore his court had no jurisdiction in the matter. In New York, the city's acting health commissioner said the woman whose deformed baby died bad taken thalidomide on ad- vice of a Park Avenue psychia- trist who had ordered the drug from a pharmacy in Germany. In Chicago, the American Medi- cal Association said it assigned its council on drugs- to do the re- search on thalidomide. The drug has been under clinical evaluation since. 1956, -the AMA said, but.it hopes the council's study will pro- vide information on congenital malformations and that "appropri- ate measures will be developed to safeguard, our Sen.
