Brown, president of :he striking Flight Engineers In- :ernalional Association, declined President Kennedy's appeal for a return of engineers to Eastern Air Lines, saying his union "will not abdicate its right to strike." Engineers of the same union re- :urned to work on Pan American World Airways planes after a re- quest by the carrier was granted or a federal court order restrain- ng strike action. Kennedy 'warned the engineers .hat to continue the strike would be "the height of irresponsiblity" and called for their return "in the name of good judgment and even a minimum concern for the pub- ic interest." The court restraining order was signed in Brooklyn by U.S. Dist. Judge George Rosling a short time after the strike deadline of 1 p.m. Easlern Standard Time.

Picket lines mushroomed at their installations. Saturday's rapid-fire develop- ments came in the wake of an agreement reached between Trans World Airlines and the union ne- gotiating team last Thursday on a formula to avert a strike against the line. The agreement has yet to be approved by a vote of the gen- eral union membership. The union bargaining teams dealing with Pan Am and East- ern rejected the TWA proposed settlement plan as unacceptable. Informed of Kennedy's appeal, elix Martin, president of East- em Air Lines council of the union, replied: "The Constitution will be restricted (sic) if we cannot choose our own bargaining agent and maintain the standards of our craft as we have for so many years." He questioned why President Kennedy carries two "technically and rneehanicaily qualified engi- neers on Jlis own plane." This was a reference to one of of the major stumbling blocks in the stalled negotiations relating to melhod of reducing fourman jet plane crews to three men. Judge Rosling issued .the re- straining order under the National Railway Labor Act which covers public transportation. In striking, the engineers re- jected an earlier appeal by Ken- nedy and George Meany, presi- dent of the AFL-CIO, to avert a walkout.

George Mahon of Lubbock said Saturday his differences with former President Eisenhower over defense policy are "in a matter of degree." Mahon said his opinion is that if the U.S. is to take chances, "we ought to take them on the side of additional strength." Mahon, chair.Man of the House Appropriations Subcommit-tee handling military funds, was answering ratal's made by Gen. Eisenhower at a Republican fund raising dinner Friday night. Eisenhower said he believed the defense budget "should be substantially reduced." He added that parts of the defense budget reflect unjustified fears, plus "a reluctance in some quarters to relinquish outmoded concepts." Mahon said a cut-back in defense spending would be mis-interpreted both at home and abroad. Mahon said the defense build-up by the Kennedy administration does not indicate criticism of Eisenhower. "Because of the nuclear stalemate and since threats are less than global, it was inevitable that these additional steps would )efense U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE WEATHER BUREAU (Weather Map, IV. 9-B) ABILENE AND VICINITY (Radius 40 miles) Clear to party cloudy act! cou-iinuecl hot through Monday, High both days 95-100, low Sunday night near 70. .NORTH CKNTflAL TEXAS.
