Roff, Fitzhugh and Attorney For Oklahomans For Local Government Enters Case OKLAHOMA CITY special three-judge fed- eral court, by decision, refused today to.issue a temporary injunction halting the May 1st legislative pri- mary elections. With U. S. District. Judge Ross Rizley. dissenting, the court elected instead to hear the case seeking reappor- tionment 'of .the legislature on its merits-. U. S. Circuit Court Judge Alfred P. Murrah told the court that "the .judicial; process of enjoining a state elec- tion is a grave this'Court has jurisdiction to grant relief and certainly will give it." Murah pointed out that, the legislative candidates al- ready had been certified and, in cases where they have no opposition, have been elected. He said if. the-court were to prohibit the May. 1 pri- action..would be taken regarding'those'candidates already elected. Murrah said the net result of the case is whether or not reap-' portionment would come in time for the 1963 .session or in. 1965. By refusing to enjoin the elec- tions, he said, the governor is left free to call a special session for Bob Kennedy Urges Jelling Of Sfory NEW YORK Gen. Robert F.

Today, the attorney general saic his proposal to send lecturers to all nations would "help these young people know the facts about us and our way of life."

Board Rules Pact By New York Newspapers Illegal Arrangement WASHINGTON (AP) A com- pact among major New York City area they will all shut down if one of them is faced with a grievance strike- was ruled today an illegal lockout arrangement. The decision by trial examiner Charles W. Schneider of the Na- tional Labor Relations Board was directed against the Publishers Association of New York and its 10 affiliated newspapers. Schneid- er's findings can be appealed to the NLRB itself and then to the courts. The papers involved are the Times. News, Post; Herald-Trib- une, Journal-American, Journal of gram and Sun, Long Island Press and Long Island Star-Journal. A spokesman for the Publishers Association of New York said the association would have no .com- ment-pending a study of the 32- page, decision, Nor .was there any immediate comment from the individual newspapers. -Announcement of the ruling co- incided with the arrival in New York City of publishers for the annual meeting of The Asso- ciated Press and the annual con- vention of .the American News- paper Publishers Association Schneider recommended disease." illegal. because, in attempting to curb wildcat strikes or walkouts in the face of contract .provisions requiring that such disputes .be arbitrated, the publication shut- downs punished neutral employes not involved in one-paper griev- ances.

Senate Majority Leader -Mike Mansfield of Montana is-commit- ted to move early in the- week to- bring up a measure to abolish the literacy tests still used in some states as' a qualification for voting in federal elections. Civil rights advocates contend such tests ;have been used, to keep Negroes from voting. Mansfield may' use a parlia- mentary, maneuver- to' bring be- fore the Senate without debate .a minor bill for which-he -then can move to substitute -legislation which would establish a sixth- grade education as the sole liter- acy qualification :for voting in federal elections. The bill now is pending before a Senate judiciary subcommittee, which cancelled a- meeting sched- uled for Tuesday-to consider act- ing on it.

It directed that the-Michigan Supreme. Court-consider, 'in the light of the U.S. Supreme- Court ruling March 26 -in a Tennessee case, whether amendments Mich- igan adopted to its-constitution in 1952.are in violation of the. fed- eral Constitution. The Michigan Supreme Court had dismissed a complaint raising the issue. In the Tennessee the high court had ruled that federal-courts may hear complaints by voters who' say their votes' are diluted state legislative'seats. Both cases'bear on an issue of'great controversy in numerous states: A contention that a minority: of rural voters is able', through unfair apportion- ment-of seats, to-control'the state legislature.

The .Polaris, 'with a range of about is carried by eight submarines already in com- mission. The'United States plans to deploy 41 of these submarines by 1967, -each mounting 16 ad- vance Polaris missiles capable of reaching miles.

(AP) United States readied its most powerful space rocket today for an attempt to propel the Ran- ger 4 spacecraft to the moon to snap television pictures and re- cord, scientific data. The launch crew has an 87-min- ute period to fire the 10-story-taU Atlas-Agena B vehicle to put the spidery spaceship on course for the 229-541-mile journey to the noon. The shot is one of three major launchings scheduled this week by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The second test -flight of the Saturn super- booster is set for Wednesday, and a U.S.-British international satel- lite'.is ticketed for firing Thurs- day. The maiden flight of the high-energy.
