I CHICAGO (AP)—Three shop craft unions made known today there will not be any nationwide railroad strike until after Jan. I.

The rail lines hurried into court and sought a temporary order and an injunction to halt the walkout. Lawyers for the carriers had argued that a work Criticism Grows On Reserve Plan HURT IN CRASH.

COYNE WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson says the plan to abolish the Army Reserves is “prudent and wise.” The Reserve Officers Association disagrees and demands a thorough investigation of Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara’s plan to do away with the Reserves by merging some units into the National Guard and placing the rest on inactive status. The association said the Air Force Reserve will be the next to go. McNamara’s proposal — aimed at saving $150 million yearly by abolishing units which the defense secretary says are no longer needed — faces some stiff opposition on Capitol Hill. Congress has control over such proposals at least to the extent of providing money to carry them out. Plans involving Army National Guard changes also are under discussion. Secretary of the Army Stephen Ailes said Sunday night that current planning concepts call for the six high-priority and two special-purpose divisions of the Guard to be converted into a division base and one brigade. But he said this was a concept “and not a firm plan.” to be considered by the Army in conjunction with Reserve and National Guard authorities. Some congressional criticism on the Reserve plan has been 37th Division In Ohio Faces First 'Defeat' By AL GOLDBERG Ohio’s never-been-beaten 37th Infantry Division apparently has been beaten at least—and by a knockout. But it wasn’t an enemy that kayoed the 47-year-old Buckeye National Guard Division. It was a Pentagon plan disclosed Saturday to consolidate the Army Reserve and the National Guard for the purpose, according to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, of saving $150 million a year and increasing the nation’s combat readiness. Although the 37th is expected to lose its division status—which has been a part of the state in peace and war since 1917—part of the organization still is due to be around in the form of a higher-priority brigade. Whether the new Ohio brigade—about a third of division strength, or 5,000 men—will be a separate unit, part of a priority division covering several states or larger than a normal brigade is not yet known. During its comparatively brief history, the Buckeye Division compiled one of the most See 37TH DIVISION, Page 18 sharp and two congressional inquiries have already been promised in the wake of Saturday’s announcement by McNamara. Chairman F. Edward Hebert, D-La., of the House Armed Services subcommittee on the Reserves and National Guard, I said McNamara “demonstrated his contempt for Congress” by issuing the plan. Chairman John Stennis, D-Miss., of the Senate Armed Services Preparedness subcommittee, said he’ll do his utmost to maintain the Reserve force and expressed the belief Congress must approve the plan before it can go into effect. Both men said their subcom-mittes will hold hearings on the plan next year but no dates were set. BLUE LAW HEARING Jurisdiction Questioned The jurisdiction of Judge Clarence Ferrell came under fire this morning by defense attorneys as the Sunday Blue Laws case against Sam Hassin concluded in Central District Court. Judge Ferrell said he would make a decision yet today, the first one to be handed down in a series of Sunday closing charges in recent weeks. Ilassin’s attorneys, Daniel Lehigh and James Patrick, strenuously argued that Judge Ferrell had no jurisdiction to hear a case arising in what they termed as New Philadelphia Township. They contended the township was carved out of Goshen Township after a 1957 Common Pleas Court entry set up the areas in the county court system. Both claimed the entry was never amended to include the New Philadelphia Township and that the only ones included are Goshen, Auburn, Bucks, Warren, Warwick and Jefferson. Saying he was acting upon a verbal ruling by Prosecutor Harlan Spies, Judge Ferrell overruled their motion for dismissal on the jurisdiction issue. It can be expected, however, that if Hassin is found guilty of selling 79 cents worth of Christmas cards on Nov. 22, the Defense Counsel will appeal the jurisdiction question to higher courts. During the hour-long legal wranglings over the issue, Patrick said: “I venture to say See BLUE LAWS, Page 2 Election Expense Deadline Friday With deadline set for 4 p.m. Friday, the County Board of Elections office has received only 12 statements of receipts and expenditures required by Ohio law to be filed in connection With the Nov. 3 election.

Veteran Airline Pilot Guides Novice Pilot To Safe Landing CINCINNATI (AP)—A veteran American Airlines pilot, with 50 passengers on his DC-6 plane, guided a novice private pilot to a safe landing Sunday in a skyway drama. James R. Dudley of LaGrange Park, 111., who became lost while en route to Chicago from Cleveland in his small craft, was running low on fuel and was caught in a thick cloud cover. American Airlines said the I Federal Aviation Center at Indianapolis called for help in I bringing in the small craft, which also was fighting strong : winds. Hero of the thriller was Capt. W. W. Davenport, commander of flight No. 291, from Washington to Cincinnati and Chicago. Davenport shephered Dudley to a safe landing at Greater Cincinnati Airport. Dudley said he had had only 27 hours of instrument flying and was uncertain of his ability to descend through a heavy overcast. Davenport got as close to Dudley’s single-engine plane as possible and then led him through the heavy overcast. The weather was reasonably clear at lower levels and once the plane descended below the overcast, it was easily guided to the airport. The airliner also was earning five crew members in addition to the passengers, and was only 40 minutes late on its arrival here. Canton Escapee Captured By FBI COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—The FBI in South Carolina has announced the arrest of William Roberts, a 43-year-old Canton man who walked away from the Ohio Penitentiary Nov. 16. Roberts was picked up by agents who recognized him from a wanted poster. Warden Ernest L. Maxwell said Roberts was working in the prison mail office outside the walls when he walked away. He was sentenced last April to serve a two to six year term for passing worthless checks. V Weathervane SATURDAY High 53 Low 33 YESTERDAY High 49 Low- 24 Elsewhere In U.S I.
