BAULCH WASHINGTON (AP) Reject- ing a strong plea from President Kennedy, flight engineers stood pat Friday on their refusal to ar- bitrate the key issue of their dis- pute with, three major airlines cockpit job rights. Injunction Is Issued NEW YORK Justice Department, acting on the orders of President Kennedy, obtained a temporary federal court injunc- tion Friday halting a strike at Republic Aviation Corp. The strike halt.d production of the F105 jet fighter. The President said it imperiled the national safety and ordered the Justice Department to act un- der the provisions of the Taft- Hartley Act. U.S. Dist. Judge Walter Bruch- hausen in Brooklyn issued an or- der halting the strike until a court hearing next Wednesday. Repub- lic then sent telegrams to some striking employe? telling them to report to work Monday. An affidavit from Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, read to Judge Bruchhausen, de- clared that the F105 is urgently needed, by the Air Force now. The Flight Engineers Interna- tional Association linked to the turndown a renewed strike threat, with a deadline of sometime after p.m. Eastern Standard Time Saturday. A walkout would idle Pan Amer- ican, Eastern Air Lines and Trans World Airways and immobilize 40 per cent of the nation's commer- cial airline service. The three air- lines transport an average of 000 domestic and overseas passengers daily. The deadlocking issue is the proposal to cut the crews of the big jets from four men to three by combining Ihe duties of eng'.- neer and third pilot. The engineers want assurance that they will hold onto one cockpit job. "We will give them a reason- able time to respond before call- ing a Ronald A. Brown, the engineers' president told news- men. Later he said 24 hours after the end of his news conference would be reasonable. The AFL-CIO union renewed its acceptance of the government's proposal to arbitrate pay and oth- er issues, at least with two ol the airlines, Pan American and East ern. The union's TWA branch however, reiterated its refusal to submit any of the issues to arbi tration. AU three airlines had accepted the government's arbitration pro posal on all issues.

(AP) Bfflie Sol Estes admitted to his creditors rriday that he is million in debt, but submitted a plan to pay off and help 4-H Club farm youths, too. The creditors turned down the offer and asked the court for lankruptcy proceedings Estes. U.S. Dist, Judge R. Ewirig Thomason said the court will im- mediately proceed adjudicate he estate bankrupt if nothing is accomplished at another meeting with creditors in Dallas next week The date for that meeting was not disclosed. State Atty. Gen. Will Wilson asked and was granted permis- ion to name Estes and some as- ociates in a state antitrust suit when the new meeting with cred- ors was disclosed. Thomason granted the motion n the condition that no fine or penalty be assessed against Es- es or the receivership. An attorney for Estes' creditors objected on the grounds that "the reditors might be injured if the Estes matter is continued and lostponed." He referred to a hear- ng set earlier in the day for July 13 at which Thomason said he would hear the creditors motion o declare Estes bankrupt. Thomason then said he would tear the motion right after the Dallas meeting. The West Texas promoter testi- 'ied nearly four hours at a cred- tors hearing before Judge Thom- ason. He invoked the Fifth Amendment six times. Estes listed assets of 155.95 and liabilities of 935.87. Estes' lawyers told the court :hat under the submitted plan would renounce claim to in excess the debts and would have any such excess jrofit be paid into a trust for the l-H Club farm youth program. Estes asked that he be per- mitted to keep his Pecos home, automobile, tractor and farm .ools. Estes repeatedly said he had no lidden assets. Use Zeal Asked how he would pay his debts, Estes said: "I would go out and get some business. I would suggest the receiver use zeal. Where he lacks knowledge, ie should seek wisdom." Judge Thomasoi. asked where Estes would get money: "You mean you would borrow from a replied Estes. Allen Poage, a lawyer for the court-appointed receiver, asked Estes if he would go to the same creditors sitting in this court for money. "Yes, I answered Estes. To another question about pay- ng off his debts, Estes said: 'I understand Secretary Orville Freeman said not only the em- pire would go but the emperor would go, too. I think if I should step out of the picture, Mr. Free- man would have accomplished what he wanted to do."
