Hamilton Lee and Bill plan of Nixon Defeated Washington a the Senate today rejected 47 to 46 president Nixon a proposal that the $1.60 an hour minimum wage be raised to $2 rather than the $2.20 supported by democrats. The Defeated Republican substitute for the democratic Bill also would have eliminated provisions extending coverage of the wages and hours Law to 8.4 million new workers. Sen. George Mcgovern the democratic presidential nominee flew Back to Washington from South Dakota to vote against the Nixon measure. His presence contributed to the one vote margin. Even though the substitute was rejected senators opposed to various sections of the Bill planned to offer individual amendments to eliminate them or Cut them Back. The test came on a Republican substitute for a democratic sponsored wage Bill. The democratic version approved by the Senate labor committee with some Republican liberals backing it would boost the $1.60 wage floor to $2.20 in a series of Steps. It also would bring 8.4 million additional employees under the act and repeal a series of exemptions which now Block overtime pay for various groups of workers. The other measure sponsored by Republican Sens. Peter h Dominick of Colorado and Robert Taft jr., of Ohio would have raised the minimum to $2 in two Steps but provide no new coverage. It also would establish a $1.60 differential for Many youths. The Dominick Taft Bill followed the lines of president Nixon recommendations to the Congress. Democrats contend the $220 minimum is essential to cover increases in the Cost of living since the $1.60 wage floor was approved in 1966 and to remove millions of Low wage workers from poverty. Republicans argue that $2.20 will be inflationary and destroy Job opportunities of some Young persons and Blacks because marginal employers cannot afford to pay it. Birthday party sen.

Kissinger a meeting with the North vietnamese was his first since the United states broke off formal talks in Early May. Within Days the United states mined the harbours of North Vietnam. Before going to Paris Kissinger told reporters he saw some reason to believe that Hanoi might be willing to take a new approach to the peace negotiations.

Subcommittee okays Nixon anti using Bill what s inside amusements Bridge classified ads comics crossword editorials financial obituaries sports television women s news weather 3d 120 3d a 12b. A 2a 79c c 9a in 3a Washington a a House education subcommittee has approved president Nixon s anti using Bill after knocking out the $2 5 billion he asked to improve the Quality of ghetto schools. As originally sent to Congress. The Bill would have authorized the funds for compensatory education most of which would have been concentrated in inner City schools As an alternative to de segregating them.

Union declines presidential endorsement Al Cio stance reveals Meany s Power by Neil Gilbride associated Prats writer Washington a George Meany steering the Al Cio to a Fence sitting position of neutrality in the presidential Campaign showed he is still firmly in command of the nations House of labor and a Power to be reckoned with in National politics. A a he a invincible a grumbled one Union opponent after the 77-year-old Meany led the 35-Man Al Cio executive Council to a 27-3 vote wednesday against endorsing either democratic nominee George Mcgovern or president Nixon. A i will not vote for either one of them a Meany told a news conference. A Meany was Calm Cool responsible effective and Well prepared a said another reluctant admirer on the labor Council who had urged endorsement of Mcgovern As the Falcio has done with every previous democratic presidential nominee. Meany has sharply attacked Nixon on economic policies while reportedly disagreeing with Mcgovern a views on the Vietnam War. Meany who said Mcgovern was not a Good material for a president shrewdly avoided a direct vote on whether to endorse Mcgovern and made it Clear the Al Cio s 117 affiliated unions and their 13.6 million members were free to do As they wished. This blunted opposition from several Mcgovern supporters on the labor Council. Typical was president Floyd Smith of the 900,000-member machinists Union who endorsed Mcgovern but voted with Means a a position of neutrality for the Al Cio. A let them do As they like a Meany told a news conference. Al Cio sources said that had the vote been directly on whether to endorse Mcgovern the vote would have been virtually split Down the Middle. Despite his Victory in bending the labor Council to his wishes the Issue produced More division in labors ranks than any in recent memory and raised the possibility of a later stronger Challenge to Meany a dominance of the labor federation. A the vote reflects personal localities that exist within the Al Cio rather than a True Index of support for tile democratic ticket by american Trade unionists a said president Jerry Wurf of the american federation of state county and municipal employees. Wurf a member of the Al Cio Council and a Mcgovern supporter was one of the three votes against the position of neutrality the other two were presidents Paul Jennings of the International Union of electrical workers and Al Grospiron of the Oil chemical and atomic workers. But Many More Union presidents have endorsed or Are leaning toward Mcgovern. Meany and other labor leaders have never claimed to be Able to deliver labor Union votes in a bloc but their influence is believed to be considerable. More importantly the position of neutrality deprives Mcgovern of the support of the Al Cion a committee on political education which raises some $3 million in voluntary Union members contributions and provides thousands of Volunteer political Campaign workers for labors friends in congressional and presidential elections. George Meany
