Legislators are excluded from the measure which was introduced primarily to allev- iate what the legislature's joint judiciary committee calls wage inequities. Adoption came on a motion to reconsider an earlier vote that killed the proposal. The final vote was 18-14.

Without the agreement, thej program would have expired automatically next Tuesday. In its debate on the house bill, the seriate first rejected 49-38 a proposal of Sen. Pat Santa Rosa, which had been due to dock in New York this morning with its 247 pas- sengers. A fire broke out in a for- ward paint room of the million Santa Rosa and was not put out for several hours.

HIGHTOWER western Big Three agreed onditionally today to a summit meeting with Russia n the Berlin issue and other great problems. They dif- ered materially in the emphasis they placed on the onditions. A U. S. note to Russia said this country is prepared for i meeting of heads of state "on the understanding" that a prior meeting of foreign ministers at least narrows differences and prepares "constructive proposals." The British note to the Kremlin took a considerably more positive approach. It said the British would be glad to go to the summit "as soon as developments n the foreign ministers meeting warrant." It spoke of a summit meeting this summer whereas the U. S. note only spoke of such a conference as soon as the acti o n _ f" Seymour sailor, home on a 15- mary to Walter Kohler in con his "ad'mmistra-lMcNamara (D-Mich) and oth- tion endorsed the measurejers for a 15-month extension last week in hearings beforejof the program with liberal- hours, the ships wedged togelher the senate finance committee.

There were no confirmed kills. foreign ministers' might "justify" it. The French language con- cerning conditions was still stiffer than that of the United States. President Charles de Gaulle, in his note to Moscow, made his attendance hinge on whether the foreign ministers meeting "permits the envis- agement of genuine progress at the top. The French spoke only of a summit session "at an appropriate time" instead of mentioning this summer. Topics Not Limited All three of western notes reserved the right of all participants to bring up whatever subjects they choose. That is in contrast to the Russian idea of confining the talks solely to Berlin and a German peace treaty. In a March 2 note the Kremlin proposed that the foreign ministers meeting, at least, be held exclusively to those subjects. U. Sr officials said that in spite of the differences in wording they considered the western notes to say substan- tially the same thing to the Russians. Conferences Indicated The western powers propos- ed that the foreign ministers meeting start in Geneva May 11 "to consider questions re- lating to Germany, including a peace treaty with Germany and the question of Berlin." From there on, they went into their divergent approach- es to the summit session.

This raid was part of our fight against or- ganized crime." Sheriff J. Henry Moch said: "This was nothing like the Apalachin convention." Sixty-odd underworld fig- ures and associates were picked up by state troopers who raided a mansion at Apalachin, a tiny upstate New York community, Nov. 14. 1957. All were released after questioning because, state police said, there were no grounds to arrest them.

Although Brunkhorst. long-j time Republican officeholder was reelected last November, the county board soon after found that he was un-j able to perform the duties of nis office. The board vacated the office and Gov. Gaylordj Nelson on Feb. 27 named! Krenn to the post. A Demo-! crat, the 28-year-old Krenn! had been an unsuccessful candidate against B r u n horst. I Brunkhorst instituted pro-; ceedings in circuit court chal-i lenging Krenn's right to hold the office and asking the court to order the county board to reinstate him. Judge Hanson refused and upheld the board's right to re- move him. He said Brunk-j horst elected to come under! the provisions of the State tirement Fund in 1946. Since BrunKhorst was over 65 years of age, he continued to hold office only because the county board from year to year certified to the state that it wished to continue to em- [ploy him, Judge Hanson laid.
