Transport Union's Mike Quill Dies By JERRY BUCK NEW YORK (AP) - Labor leader Michael J. Quill liked to think of himself as an Irish ogre, a sort of "elder statesman of public monsters." His favorite spot was in the midst of a storm, oftentimes whipped up by his own collikcy temperament. His career led him from the Irish rebellion as a teenager down into the subway tunnels, cut through Manhattan's rocky foundation, then up to lead the subway -^workers into the powerful State Assumes Control Over Atomic Energy PEACH BOTTOM, Fa. (AP)- Pennsylvania assumes full regulatory power over radiation sources with the exception of atomic reactors under legislation signed here Friday by Gov. Scranton. The governor, braving bone-chilling winds, flew by helicopter to the state's newest atomic energy plant to dramatize his approval of the Atomic Energy Development and Radiation Control Act. The new law, which enables the state to enter into agreements with the federal government, is aimed at making Pennsylvania industry more compe^ titive in the atomic age, Scranton said. He called the measure a 'giant step forward into the atomic energy era, one which should make Pennsylvania industry highly competitive in this fast-changing world." The law designates the state Commerce Department as the agency responsible for the pro motion and development of atomic, energy resources and creates a special advisory com mittee within the state Health Department The committee is responsible for control and development of atomic energy plants in Pennsylvania. Wearing a bright yellow construction worker's helmet, Scranton inspected the Philadelphia Electric Company's atomic reactor here and chatted with workmen. "This is a great industry, vl ta' to the future of us all," he said. Located along the Lower Susquehanna River a few miles above the Conowingo Dam, the plant was constructed to provide electric power in the area as far east as Philadelphia. It was designed to produce 40,000 kilowatts of electricity. Joining Scranton were John K. Tabor, secretary of commerce; Robert F. Gilkeson, president of Philadelphia Electric, and R. G. Rincliffe, chairman of the board Scranton spent about 30 minutes looking at the reactor and asking questions of specialists at the plant. Then he returned to Harrisburg in the helicopter. The trip to Peach Bottom was one in a series of special bill signings by Scranton. Previously, he signed a high- Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 4 AFL-CIO Transport Workers Union. Through it all, like a dyspep tic leprachaun, Quill wielded his tongue, like his ever-present blackthorn stick. He could charm a friend - or tear the hide off an opponent with his acid wit. He was roly-poly, had a fringe of gray hair around his bald head, and peered at the world through horn-rimmed glasses. In a dozen cliffhanging contract negotiations Quill had threatened to lead his members into strike. But he never did until this year. Three days after he called the New Year's Day walkout of bus and subway workers in New York City, he was stricken at the civil jail. He and eight other union leaders had been taken there under arrest for defying a State Supreme Court injunction prohibiting the strike The strike lasted 12 days and cost the city an estimated bil lion dollars. Quill was released from custody at Bellevue Hospi tal and vowed to be around for many more contract negotiations. Death overtook the fiery labor leader Friday at the age of 60. He died in his 37th-floor apart ment at 15 E. 72nd St. Dr. Hyman Zuckerman, his personal physician, said Quill died at 5:40 p.m. of a coronary occlusion. He said the attack was unrelated, to the. illness he had suffered after his arrest Jan. 4. Dr. Zuckerman said he had warned Quill to slacken his pace. "There's no doubt about it, that he worked too hard," he said. "Mike never let up." Quill's second wife, Shirley, was at his side when he died. A funeral service has been * < it ' � if *V �* * | READ IT AND WEEP - Moore and Eshelman time and temperature clock at Clearfield gave this reading of minus nine degrees at 8:05 a. m. today but that's not the worst of it. Some backyard readings put the mer- cury down as low as 26 below zero at Hyde. Progress Photographer Jack Zipf had to warm up a frozen camera battery to get these pictures. Don't fret, it could be worse . . . and is elsewhere in the U. S. v m w w m Temperatures Range From -7 to -26 Quick, take a number from 7 to 26. If you said 7, that's how much below zero it was at Radio Station WCPA this morning. If you said 26; that's how far below zero it was at Hyde. And if you guessed any numbers between those two figures, that's how cold it was at various points in the Clearfield County-Moshannon Valley Area; Officially, it was 9 below zero at Mid-State Airport. The weatherman, at the same time, is offering little encouragement for shivering area residents because he calls for 5 to 15 degrees below zero weather for tonight. And as an added bit of spice for the coldest wave of the winter season, the forecaster is calling for some snow and flurries Cases Listed Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 3 Fires Strike In Four Towns Approximately $100 damage was caused to siding at the home of Michael Strike Jr. at 803 Turnpike Ave. in a fire at 10:40 a.m. today. Clearfield firemen who answered the general alarm said the siding caught fire while an outside water line was being thawed. WALLACETON-Fire damage, confined mostly to the basement, was estimated at $1,200 yesterday afternoon at the Thomas McGinley home. James Rothrock, chief of the Wallaceton Area Volunteer Fire Co., reported that the furnace in the basement of the McGinley home, owned by Alvin Beish, blew up and set the home on fire.

Common Market Plan Weighed By CARL HARTMAN LUXEMBOURG (AP) - West European leaders today weighed a new French proposal to end the crisis in the Common Market by an agreement designed to avoid showdown votes affecting a nation's vital interests. "We have to ruminate over it," said Dutch Foreign Minister Josef Luns after a working dinner Friday night. But Gerhard Schroeder, the West German foreign minister, said the latest French proposal still did not answer the basic question: Should each of the six member nations keep a veto over major decisions? France has fought to keep the veto, but the other five members want to go ahead with plans to replace it with majority rule. The new French idea is this: there would be no formal veto hut if a member nation said a proposal threatened its national interest, P'rance would refuse to take part in the voting or to recognize the result if there were a vote. The hope is that with this threat clearly stated, no such situation would ever arise. Under this arrangement, a compromise would always be found before the situation developed into a showdown vote. To back up their position, the French say they would like to see a joint statement by the six member nations that all of them want to settle problems by unanimous vote, and that none of them wants to see the others' national interests threatened. The debate was due to go on all day today in the Luxembourg City Hall. It might last into Sunday. The Common Market, known formally as the European Economic Community, groups France, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg. Their ohject is to seek By Grand Jury The February grand jury on Monday morning will begin consideration of criminal charges brought against 18 persons.
