Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 3, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST CRESCENT VOL LI No. 85 26 A, B APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., SATURDAY, OCTOBER ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents No Mass GM Stock Sale by Du Pont, U. S. Judge Decides Firm May Not Vote or Act to Influence Motors Corporation Chicago OB A federallindustrial giants, besides shift- j _1.2 court order severing coporate ties between Du Pont and Gen- eral Motors without forcing a Mass stock sale calmed fears in the financial world today. Du Font's president said he ing Du Font's voting rights, in its GM stock to individual Du Pont stockholders: 1. Bars Du I. du Pont de Memours company, the" big chemical firm and was gratified with the Du Pont family holding which generally followed the Chirstiana Secur- proposal made by Du Pont at- torneys. The government, which had asked sale and distribution of Du Font's 63 million shares of GM stock, has not said wheth- er it will appeal the decision. Its attorneys said they are studying the long decree. First reaction in financial circles was unanimous that the ruling was favorable to both sides. Distribution Needless U. S. Dist. Judge Walter J. La Buy, late yesterday after domestic stock exchanges closed for the weekend, held that the distribution was not necessary. Government attorneys had asked distribution of the GM shares, worth some billion, as a means of ending a Clay- ton anti-trust law violation. The supreme court held such a violation resulted from Du Font's possession of the shares, comprising 23 per cent of the outstanding GM stock. Judge La Buy's solution to the problem was a ban on vot- ing rights for Du Pont on its GM stock, and other bars to influence by Du Pont interests upon GM management affairs. The order, latest develop- ment in the government's 10- year effort to sever the two ities company and the Dela- ware Realty and Investment corporation from acquiring and additional stock interest or influence in GM; Can't be Directors 2. Prohibits the Christiana and Delaware firms from vot- ing GM stock and wipes out any voting rights of GM shares held by Christiana; 3. Bars Du Pont. Christiana and Delaware officers and di- rectors from voting any GM stock; 4. Forbids officers and di- rectors of Du Pont, Christiana and Delaware from serving as GM officers or directors, and bars GM from employing any employes of the three Du Pont companies; 5. Bans any preferential trade arrangements or under- standings between Du Pont and GM as long as Du Pont owns GM stock, and cancels existing supplier contracts be- tween Du Pont and GM for three years after which one- year supplier contracts may be negotiated. Judge La Buy's order re- tained Chicago district court jurisdiction for enforcement of the order and reserved the right to review and amend the court's terms if future justification should arise. Fallout Shelters For State Pushed Milwaukee Proposal Similar to New York Plan, CD Seminar Hears BY JACK GLASNER Post-Crencent Staff Writer Madison New York's Gov. Nelson Rockefeller has ask- ed a volunteer committee to push a program for fallout shel- ters in the state, and the city of Milwaukee is recommend- ing similar action in Wisconsin, it was indicated at a non- military defense seminar here Friday.

The New York Shipping as- sociation says it will not meet with the International Long- shoremen's-association untilj Oct. 15. The union says its workers will not return to the docks until it has a new con- tract. Shippers say the strike is costing them million a day. Robert H. Moore, deputy di- rector of the federal media- tion and conciliation service, plans to meet Monday sep- arately with both sides but he has indicated that the im- mediate possibility of his per- suading them to meet jointly is unlikely. Many Ships Tied Up The strike of about longshoremen from Sears- port, Maine, to Brownsville, Texas, has tied up cargo op- erations on about 20 freight- ers. The strike developed ear- ly Thursday in southern ports and quickly spread north. The New York Shipping as- sociation, which represents 170 steamship lines and con- tracting stevedores in the Port of New York, negotiates master contracts for all em- ployers from Maine to Vir- ginia. The association and union leaders had agreed to a 15-day extension of the con- tract that expired Sept. 30 and also had agreed that any would be retro- active to Oct. 1. U. S.

Construction Contracts For Million Project End; Million Expended Bureau Washington Construction of the previously authorized million Richard Bong air force base at Kansasville, Wis., was cancelled by the air force Friday after million was spent. The air force cancelled construction contracts and will dis- pose of supplies and equipment, it said. Other bases, which had been handling B47 bombers will take over the B58 bomb- er mission originally programmed for Bong. Last year, Rep. Melvin R.

However, the vessel, the Mor- macteal, asked no particular assistance. The ship was in the vicinity of Hurricane Hannah and its! difficulty was believed to have resulted in some way from the storm, possibly a breaking loose of some of the general cargo it was carrying. Despite the lack of any re- quest for assistance, two coast guard cutters were dispatched Lo the scene, and at noon one was only nine miles away.
