Gaylord Nelson, titular leader of the Wisconsin Democratic party, expects the party to maintain its traditional opposition to a state sales tax'when it holds its annual convention in Mil- waukee next week. But such a convention atti- tude, he told reporters at a news conference this morning, won't be in conflict with his oxvn program of studying fun- damental tax revision through Nelson Decries Second Legislature Recess Madison Gov. Gay- said today he can not believe that Repub- lican party leaders, are "seriously" inclined toward a second legislative recess 'to await recommendations' of a. citizens committee on iajf'revisioh. a he told his weekly news confer- ence, "might create com- plete ?J his revenue survey commis- sion or his repeated advice to his followers and other citi- zens to keep an open tax issues until the commis- sion reports. The governor said he would not regard an anti-sales tax resolution at the convention as unfriendly to him or his program.' The party has a right to maintain its' tradition- al stand, 'he said, but he is also confident that it will sup- port his program for basic studies that may lead to changes later after all the facts are disclosed and there V Western Leaders To Confer Dec. 19 In French Capital Hope to Reach Agreement On Negotiations With Russia Washington President Eisenhower and the heads of Britain, France and West Germany will meet in Paris Dec. 19" to work out a solid western stand for talks with Rus- sia.

The union acted as media- tion efforts resumed here'. In a 97-page legal brief filed with the court, the Steelwork- ers said the law attempts .to give federal courts powers vhich go beyond the limits o) he constitution. It asserted: "The simple contention is, simply, that under the Taft- Hartley act, federal courts are asked to issue an injunc- .ion which is no part of 'the judicial function of adjudicat- ing justiciable controversj ies.' The government, in a reply brief, held that the law is con- stitutional. Meetings Resumed As the union carried its fight on Taft-Hartley to the highest court, industry arid union negotiating teams were summoned before federal me- diators during the morning for inconclusive separate ses- sions. Further meetings were set for the afternoon. In the legal maneuvering, the government told the high court the steel strike already has resulted in such unem- ployment as to "fully estab- lish the imminence of 'great economic disruption." The supreme court has scheduled oral arguments be- ginning at 11 a.m. tomorrow on validity of the 80-day in- junction issued by U.S. Dist. Judge Herbert Sorg in Pitts- burgh, and upheld by the U. S. Court of Appeals in Phila- delphia. In, its brief filed today, the union again challenged the district court's finding that the strike imperils the nation- al health or safety. j t Airliner Nearly Runs Into Truck Jackson.

Many of the bodies are still missing. The governor of Colima said officials would begin making another check on the number of dead today by coincidence the day on which Roman Catholics give special remem- brance to their dead. Relief supplies of food, me.dicine, clothing and some building materials are coming into the stricken area by air, road and sea. but they are hardly enough to meet im- mediate needs. Rail lines which can handle larger shipments are still closed. Officials said, it will be Thursday before the line to this port is cleared of slides. Most of the residents of this battered port and other dam- aged towns appeared deter- mined to remain rooted and rebuild.
