Dist. Judge Clarence W. Allgood signed a five-day restraining or- der Friday night against a strike at Redstone Arsenal, heart of the nation's space research program. The order came on a request from attorneys for the National Labor Relations Board, acting on petitions from the space agency and several firms employed in construction work at the arsenal. Allgood said he would set a trial date on the issues as soon as pos- sible. He said time did not permit a thorough hearing on the Friday night. The petition requested a re- straining order for five days. All- good said he could extend that period if necessary. Local 558 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union, AFL-CIO, posted pickets at the arsenal last Tuesday. About members of other building trades groups honored the picket lines. The walkout has virtually halted construction valued at millions ol dollars on the sprawling arsenal property. The petition for a restraining or- der was signed by William J.

Close friends rallied around, saying she had been happy and had big career and personal plans thai would have made suicide re- mote. They contended it had to be accident. But official investigators from the start said it looked like sui- cide. There had been reports that she died virtually broke, despite earn- inc more than million over her career. But her will, filed for pro- bale Friday in New York, indi- cated assets of more than half a million dollars. The coroner's came in a smal announcement hearing room in the Hall of Justice.

The measure, which opens the way for the first commercial use of space, now goes back to the House for action on Senate changes. These changes do not include more than 200 amendments fired at it in a delaying action by Sens. Wayne Morse, D-Ore.; Estes Ke- fauver, D-Tenn.; Russell B. Long, D-La., and other Democratic critics. All were rejected. The bill, which the House passed by a 354-9 vote last May 3, provides for the establishment of a privately owned, government regulated corporation to operate this country's part of a communications system glbba; using earth satellites as relay stations, One addition made by the Sen- ate, which must be passed on by the House, specifies that all (orients assuring one another they iad fought a good fight.

And at Pierre, it was George McGovern, Democratic candidate 'or the Senate who was at Ken- nedy's elbow all the way. In an address prepared for deli very at Pierre there were lauda- tory remarks for McGovern, but Kennedy skipped them when he delivered the speech, and re- ferred lo McGovern only in open- ing remarks when he introduced those on the speakers' platform. House candidates pressed around, too. Yet there were bipartisan touches. Carroll's opponent, freshman Peter H. Dominick got a spot on the speaker's plat form, an opportunity to nod an introduction, but no chance lo say anything. Kennedy aim called, at Pueblo for adding three seashore areas lo the national park system this year-at Cod on the Atlan- tic, at Point Reyes on the Pacific md at Padre Island on the Gulf Coast of Texas.

Humphrey harged that the inquiry into his I. A. Hanna Co. nickel contract the government is politically motivated and constitutes a "stab n the back." The Missouri senator, himself a vealthy man and former industri- list, said this was an insult to the Senate. When the hearing broke up im- mediately after a shouting match Ktween Symington and Hum- phrey, the latter told newsmen the iproar proved his claim that They don't dare attack Ike (for- mer President Dwight D. Eisen- lower) direct so they are attack- ng me." Humphrey, 72, honorary chair- man of Hanna, had been schcd- iled for a second day on the wit- ness stand before the Senate sub- committee headed by Symington. He described the vast Hanna mining interests before stepping out to join the Eisenhower Cabinet. Symington opened the hearing with a statement objecting to Humphrey's comment on the in- quiry. "Humphrey not only disagrees with the figures as to his own anc his company's profits on these con tracts, but now impugns the mo ivcs of the Senate and this sub committee." Symington said. i t hats and the customary importation, lean on a fence a helicopter. Scene was of the operation "shall be consistent with the federal anti-rust laws."

They said this monopoly would be dominated by the American Telephone 4 Telegraph Co. Administration spokesmen from President Kennedy down, with strong backing from Republicans in Congress, rejected these charges. They said the bill fully protects the public interest and provides for a cooperative effort by private enterprise and the government to set up a global communications network in space. In a final plea for passage. Sen. John 0. Pastore, D-R.I., 'loor manager for the bill, told the Senate, "I stake my name, my reputation, and everything I have worked for for 55 years" that the bill is not a giveaway, but is designed to serve the nation's welfare. Sen. Morris Cotton, R-N.H., paid tribute to Pastore's efforts, saying: "His name on this bill guarantees it was drawn in good faith." The final hours of debate developed into a sort of mutual admiration society on both sides, with supporters of the bill con-Texos Senators Split in Voting WASHINGTON (AP) Texas senators split Friday on the 66-11 vote by which the Senate passed the communications satellite bill. Republican John Tower voted for the measure. Democrat Ralph Yarborough over three months, and after the first successful move in 35 years to lower the Senate's antifilibuster boom. Even alter the Democratic and Republican floor leaders won a 63-27 vote last Tuesday to invoke the debate-limiting cloture rule, the opponents continued the struggle. Despite the rule limiting each senator to one more hour of speaking time, they managed to stave off a final vote until Friday by launching a flotilla of amendments. These were torpedoed, singly and in bunches, by top-heavy majorities. Kefauver and Morse, leaders of. .he opposition, offered substitute measures of their own to provide 'or government ownership of the projected communications operation. They were beaten back by votes of 64-11 and 73-13. ces Back al Probe administration have been called despite requests. Negotiations for the disputed Hanna nickel contract were carried on largely in the closing days of the Truman administration in 1952-53.
