Four other members of the troupe battled to hang on the swaying high wire and did not fall. Dieter Schepp, 23, making his first appearance with the famed aerial act, and Richard Faughnan, 29, only member of the German troupe, were killed in the fall. Mario Wallenda, 22, suffered critical injuries in the fall. He was taken to Highland Park General Hospital where his condition was said to be "poor."

Though Secretary of State Dean Rusk's bid for unanimity on the ouster issue, failed earlier today, the United States had mustered the necessary two-thirds majority for the vote directing the Castro regime's speedy expulsion from the councils of the inter-American family. The biggest and most powerful nations in Latin America jarred the United States by refusing to vote for the expulsion "without delay" of the Castro government 'from the Organization of Ameri- can States and its various agen- cies. The vole was 14-1, with Cuba that Khrushchev at least intends to have a cooling off period in East-West conflict.

President Kennedy proposed the new department Tuesday in a re- organization plan which would be- come effective al Hie end of March unless either branch of Congress vetoes it. He previously announced that Robert C. Weaver would head the new department and become the first Negro member of the Cabi- net. Weaver now heads the Hous- ing and Homo Finance Agency which would attain Cabinet status under the President's plan. j It was almost certain that the I President won't have to wait 60 'Idays to learn the fate of the pro- iposal. The law under which the reor- ganization plan was submitted permits a vote in cither the Sen- ate or the House by Feb. 10 if Government Operations. Commit- tees don't act by then on resolu- tions 'to reject the .plan. Three such resolutions were in- troduced in the House shortly aft- er the President's message trans- mitting the plan was read. A spokesman lor the House Government Operations Commit- tee said hearings. probably would be held soon, in the Senate, Chairman John. L. McClelTan, D- .indicated the Senate Gov- ernment Opera'ions Committee would be in no hurry. Both committees previously had approved separate bills to create the new. department by law. The Bouse Rules Committee last week killed the legislation with all five Republican members and four of the 10 Democrats opposing it. Current indications are that the reorganization plan will be acted on first by the House, but political expediency may dictate a last- minute change. Even proponents admit that Uiey probably don't have the voles in the House because of al- most solid Republican opposition and heavy animosity from South- ern Democrats, But they are de- termined to force a vote even if they wind up with nothing but a political issue. Polities' runs deeper in the House this year than in the Sen- ate because all 435 House seats and only one-third of those in the Senate will be at stake in the No- vember, elections. Democrats believe they can stem the normal off-year election tide in favor of the minority party they can make a record that would hurt the GOP in big urban areas. The President's plan has heavy support in the big cities where the GOP hopes lo make inroads this year into Democratic strength. A vote against the plan undoubtedly would be labeled by Democrats as a vote against big city interests' and against putting a Negro in the Cabinet, On the other hand, most South- ern Democrats who -oppose the proposal wouldn't be hurt po- litically. there was any certainty that the Senate would approve the plan, it would be voted on there first, but there is no such assur- ance. A defeat in the Senate would kill the plan and the House wouldn't get a chance to vote on it. However both these changes were less than seasonally ex- pected. Employment usually declines in January due to post-Christmas lags, while unemployment in- creases because of the winter weather. Actually the January employ- ment tolai, while a drop from De- cember, was at a record for Ihe month. The January idle total was below the unemployment figure recorded in January 1961. Goldberg made the figures pub- lic in teslimony prepared for the Senate-House Economic Commit- tee. They confirm what President Kennedy said in his economic re- port, Goldberg told the commit- lee, lhat "We are in the midst of a vigorous econojnic recovery. I to years." Principle Attacked However. Mack Braly, execu- tive board member, expressed the opinion that the act could fairly be altacked in principle as well. "If it's morally wrong not to try lo help Ihe he said, "it's also morally wrong to let some- body else come in and tell us how to run our business." The board approved a motion directing Braly to draft a resolu- tion opposing the act, for submis- sion to the next meeting of the executive board.

Cox at that time was taken lo Valley View Hospital in critical condition. His wife. Rosa Lee, 43, the only other passenger, was taken to an Oklahoma Cily hos- pital also in critical condition.

The labor secretary said the na- tion still has a major problem in a hard-core jobless situation that is continuing. He said long-term unemployment- still poses a "very serious problem." Goldberg said that, at the cur- rent level of unemployment, 5.5 million jobs would have to be. add- ed during 1962 to reduce the sea- sonally adjusted unemployment rate, now 5.8 per cent to the four per cent level which Kennedy picked as a temporary goal. That number of new jobs is needed, Goldberg said, to provide full-time employment opportuni- ties for new additions to the labor force, workers displaced by new machines and technological chang- es, and those now involuntarily on part-time work Goldberg called for prompt en- actment of Kennedy's proposed Cox attempted to bring it back onto the pavement it hit the cast end of the north bridge bannister. Basinger said the impact sheared off 12 feet of bridge bannister and totally demolished the car. The bridge is the same site where the body of Simon Fine. Stratford, was found four days earlier.
