conflicts of interest Regulation of ethical con duct Kennedy said must be coordinated in order to ensure that all employes are held to the same general standards of conduct At the same time Kennedy

understood to have a no exception rule in mind on such contacts which would include members of Con gress No change in GEs operation Stockholders back bosses By SAM DAWSON SYRACUSE N Y UPI The corporate version of the town meeting set some new highs here Wednesday for free speak ing and verbal acrobatics The General Electric annual stockholders meeting had a readymade national audience There was wide interest in the antitrust fines meted in federal court to GE and 28 other mak ers of electrical equipment along with jail sentences for jeven executives AND THE FUROR was all more intense because of the testimony in Washington before the Senate Monopoly Sub committee by some former GE officials about their roles in the antitrust conspiracy Their tes timony named some of the chief participants in the corpor ate shindig here But when the 6V4 hours of con tinuous talking was finally over here the situation at General Electric was just where it had started in the morning Well be fore the meeting management had won approval of its stand by garnering in the proxies of owners of the vast majority of outstanding stock The directors who had sat silent on the stage through the hour ordeal were all reelected Ralph J Cordiner 61 chief executive emerged with a strengthened hand OPPONENTS OF manage ment despite all the verbal fire works at the meeting and some of the speakers were past mas ters at the art were unable to produce for any motion of cen sure the votes of more than per cent of the total stock voted Then why the corporate town meeting at all First because it was mandatory under corporate rules But more important be cause it cleared the air let both management and critics speak their piece And finally perhaps because some of the participants had a lot of fun they wouldnt have missed for anything It also gave the public a chance to hear both that is the general public which doesnt own GE stock and cant register approval of disapprov al by signing or withholding proxies Much of the public had been concerned about the ques tions of business ethics the anti trust case had raised THE PUBLIC now knows how management asapart from the Justice Department and federal grand juries and judges views the antitrust conspiracy and what must now be done And the public knows how the stockholders who have money Invested in the firm feel about the situation The majority of the owners clearly side with management and want to get along with the business of running the store letting the past be mended as soon and as effectively as pos sible BAD

activities including sabotage and the col lection of arms and money for an uprising the Cuban radio an nounced White House aides describee the message as the most far reaching document on ethic ever submitted to Congress by i president Kennedy said he will fay ex ecutive order shortly blueprin those things which a govern ment employe may not do if he wants to continue on the payroll KENNEDY DID not indicate whom he intended to appoint to the ethics post But there was immediate speculation that the job might be offered to James M Landis former dean of the Harvard Law School Last December Landis 61 special assistant to the Presi dent for regulatory agencies prepared a report on the agen cies for Kennedy then Presi dentelect Among other recom mendations Landis proposed that an office be created within the executive branch to assist the President in discharging his responsibility of assuring the ef ficient execution of those laws that these agencies administer Kennedy expressed the view that no web of statute or regu lation could hope to meet all possible challenges to a federal employes integrity or his devo tion to the public interest The ultimate answer to ethi cal problems in government Kennedy said is honest people in a good ethical environment THE PRESIDENT said he in tends to issue executive orders to Prohibit gifts t6 government personnel which appear to be designed to influence official conduct Forbid government employes from using for private gain offi cial information which is not available to the general public such as for stock market specu lation f Prohibit
