Top-level negotiators whose llth-hour efforts failed to head off the walkout, accepted glumly a summon to discussions by Fran- cis A. O'Neil of the National 'Me- diation Board. What Then?

Angry crowds, defied a curfew and surged through Algiers streets Wednesday night, demanding an end to bloodshed after the Casbah 5un battle. The anti-Ben Bella guerrillas who control the city made no at- tempt to stop the demonstrators as they poured out of the ancient Casbah shouting "seven years-of ivar Is enough." It was unofficially reported that about 20 persons were killed or wounded in the one-hour battle and later flareups in the Casbah's nar- row passageways. The many in pa- jamas, swept past patrols and roadblocks. Many embraced tired sentries who let them pass despite :he 8 p.m. curfew set by guerrilla eaders of Wilaya (Zone) 4.

Willard Wirtz to succeed Supreme Court Justice-designate Arthur J. Gold- berg as secretary of labor. Kennedy personally announced his selection at a news conference: The President said Wirtz, 50, has served with distinc- tion as undersecretary since the beginning of his ad- ministration. He added that'he is confident" Wirtz will carry- on what he called the very fine tradition set by Goldberg in the field of labor-man- agement relations. Wirtz has had long experience in the labor-management field. In he. was chairman of the Wage Stabilization Board. He also has taught law at Northwestern University and at the University of Iowa. .Kennedy said he made the an- nouncement "with great pleas- ure." 'He described Wirtz' as an- able lawyer with long experience in labor-management relations. Wirtz has served as an arbi- trator in many labor-managemenl disputes. Goldberg has 'relied heavily upon him for -mediation and ne- gotiations in'many disputes. Wirtz is a one-time law partner of Adlai E. Stevenson, now U.S. ambassador to the United Na- tions. The labor, post became vacant Wednesday when Kennedy select- ed Goldberg to succeed the retir- ing Felix Frankfurter on the U.S. j Supreme Court. .Frankfurter's" retirement and the Goldberg appointment were annouriced'at the outset of a presi- dential news conference Wednes- day. It could have been no surprise that Frankfurter stepped down from the bench, and little surprise that Goldberg received the presi- dential nod to step up. Frankfurter at 79 gave way to the inevitable inroads of mounting years and waning health after his years of outstanding yet controver- sial service on the-high court He suffered' a stroke .April 5. His speech was impaired. He has been away from the court ever since. With a twinge of pathos and a refusal to compromise with prin- ciple, Frankfurter wrote President Kennedy Tuesday of his decision. In keeping with his years of pondering the law and the law books. Frankfurter started off by citing "28 U.S.C. (Sec.) 371 68 Stat. statute permit- ting his retirement. "To retain my seat on the basis of a diminished work he said, "would not comport with my own philosophy or with the demands of the business of the court.

Ban's Needed Before More Countries Get Bomb WASHINGTON (API- Presi- dent Kennedy says the possibility of 10 or 15 nuclear powers by the end of the decade underscores the need for an enforceable treaty banning all atomic tests. The President told his news con- ference Wednesday he and all the world would welcome a cessation of testing by next New Year's Day. But, he made clear. Soviet objection to international inspec- tion dims the hopes of an agree- ment must point out again that in order to end testing, we must have workable international agree- Kennedy said.

In reply to questions on other topics, Kennedy said: Government agencies are inves- tigating possible dangerous side- effects from the widespread use of DDT and. other pesticides; farmers withholding -meats and grains from the market are trying to get higher prices, not deprive consumers of their products.
