PTCH interaiUont rull Leaic MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY APRIL a iwo 7e Copy Consist o Two 1M Southerners in stall CR bill approval near WASHINGTON UP In a lastditch stand south ern senators sought Friday to send the civil rights bill back to the Senate Judiciary committee Sen James 0 Eastland the committee chairman moved that the measure be returned to his committee South ern foes of the bill argue it pilots on age limit By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Resident Bureau WASHINGTON Airlines pi lots appear determined to carry to the US Supreme Court if necessary their protest against a Federal Aviation Agency ruling that provides that no individual who has reached his 60th birth day may serve as a pilot on anj aircraft engaged in carrier op erations Judge Alexander Bicks in fed e r al court in New York on March 14 refused to grant a pre liminary injunction against the ruling and a federal appeals court judge on the same day upheld the refusal to enjoin Also on March 14 a judge in Washington upheld the FAA order in a suit brought by a Miami airlines pilot who be came 60 in February NOW THE APPEAL is being heard again in New York with attorneys for the Air Line Pilot Assn calling the order arbi trary and unreasonable This i the first time the pilots argue that a governmnet agency ha tried to set an age limit on em ployes in private industry Judge Bicks in refusing an in junction conceded that no on could say with certainty that man over 60 cannot safely pilo a modern transport plane But the judge warned ther be the occasional one who this fact may not be discovered until there is a disastrous crash which could take many lives On a sheer statistical basis the FAA order would appear contro versial Oscar Bakke director of the Bureau of Safety of the Civil Aeronautics Board recently told a House Appropriations subcom mittee We examined our sta tistics and gave them to the FAA administrator and said So far as we are able to deter mine our statistics do not indi cate that there is an increase of susceptibility to accidents with age BUT E R Quesada FAA ad ministrator told the same group that there had been no accidents attributable to pilots over 60 in part because there were only some nine airlines pilots over 60 at that time and there would be only 40 this entire year Any such accident he commented would be a freak of statistics The FFA in its order the progressive deterioration of both physiological and psycho logical functions which normally occurs with age The agency acted it said on medical facts that clearly es tablish that sudden incapacita tion due primarily toheart at tacks and strokes resulting from defects becomes significant ly more frequent in any group reaching age 60 And older pilots as a group fly the larg est highest performance air craft carrying the greatest num ber of passengers over the long est nonstop distances operating into and out of the most con gested airports near the larges cities QUESADA A retired Ai Force general told a Senali Commerce subcommittee intend to carry on a vigorou enforcement program despit whatever pressures might be ex erted from those individuals o groups who without factual in formation have complained s loudly ACCIDENT VICTIM DES MOINES yoim worker at Diamond Laboratorie here died late Thursday whe his arm was severed in a cen trifuge machine Authentic Vernon L Nelson die from loss of blood never has received adequate committee consideration The Senate Thursday cut off ny opportunity to amend the ill further a step preliminary o a final vote Eastlands mo ion was one of the few maneu rers still available to the Dixie orces BUT IT WAS obvious ma ority of the Senate was set to pass the bill The only real question left was when it could e brought to a vote One senator told a newsman He thought the prospect was this final vote around 4 to m Friday or else the matter o go over until Monday His reasoning he said is that a lot of senators want to leave town for the weekend and dont want a vote on Saturday THE BILL as it stands isnt entirely satisfactory to the more vehement advocates of civil rights legislation any more than it is to the southerners Friday Sen J William Ful aright DArk led off the de bate by calling the bill repug nant and unacceptable to the South It constitutes an indictment of 40 million citizens he said in assailing what he

Britain Friday with the good wishes of 50 million people the British the London Daily Express said But as the British cheered the French soldierstatesman farmers at home were up in arms against his price freeze on their products Farmer demonstrations in Sens and Quimper Thursday turned into riots Police used tear gas and nightsticks in battling the stone throwing crowds A dozen policemen were hurt and about a dozen demonstrators injured The farmers shouted their anger about their declining income and showed unwilling ness in advance to accept the agriculture program being prepared by De Gaulles cabi net The farmers feel that De Gaulle has failed to face up to their problems When he came to power two years ago the pressing problems were Algeria and the nations fi nances Agriculture was not neglected but it had little priority One of the measures De Gaulle imposed to regain na tional financial stability struck an unpopular note with the farmers He abolished the old sliding scale price system that guaranteed them increased prices every time the national cost of living rose Since the cost of living has been going up for decades in France this system benefitted the farmer However econo mists said the system amount ed to builtin inflation They contended it set off an endless spiral because every time farm prices jumped other prices went uptoo DeGaulle has refused to re instate sliding scales He promised some significant fi nancial aid but refused de mands of the farm bloc for a special parliamentary debate because his cabinet was still working on its price program
