10th of July WASHINGTON union and management Rail nego tiators agreed Saturday to keep bargaining until July 10 without any railroad shutdown in re sponse to an appeal by Presi dent Kennedy for one last ma jor effort to resolve their dis pute The Presidents request was accepted by both sides at a 15 minute meeting in the White House A strike could have been called after midnight Monday Kennedy warned the labor and management leaders that the dispute would be settled by an outside agency if Congress step ped in to block or halt a na tional rail strike The President said in a state ment that there has been no real bargaining in any effective sense in this dispute The chief executive said tha1 the whole future of free collec tive bargaining and the effec tiveness of the Railway Labor Act were at stake If no settlement is reached in this case there will be no alternative to the enactment of new legislation which will pro tect the public against the loss of its rail transport Kennedy said The effect of such legislation on free collective bargaining will be incalculable Kennedy proposed that repre sentatives of 200000 train oper ating employes and the nations major railroads start imme diately at hard bargaining with the aid of labor secretary W Willard Wirtz assistant labor secretary James J Reynolds and the national mediation board The President said he will request a report from Wirtz if no settlement has been reached by July 10 I shall then make such rec ommendations to the Congress as these circumstances appear to dictate Kennedy said The latest delay of a show down in the three and a half year old case involving work rules would put off any rail crisis until after Kennedy re turns from his European trip He is due back early in July A sharp split in rail labor ranks complicated the govern ments effort to achieve an agreement but a spokesman for Wirtz said the breech has been healed for the most part Kennedy warning of possible legislation to end the dispute said laws could do nothing thai both sides could not do volun tarily He implied that it would be wiser for the parlies to agree on their own special procedures ncluding arbitration if neces sary rather than risk a legis Hunt for 5 whoescaped from Eldora ELDORA UP The search is on for five teenage escapees Tom the State Training School or Boys here Hardin County Sheriff Lowell T McCormick said Friday

that hey are well on their way toward evaluating property by the July 1 1964 deadline Two other cities among the 33 ities and towns ordered to eqtial ze assessments apparently are ill set for reevaluation and we did not warn them said Ballard Tipton director of the com missions property tax division The Tax Commission on Jan 30 1962 ordered the 33 cities and owns to reevaluate property in heir jurisdiction so property owners would be paying equitable assessments Twentythree cities and coun ties have entered into contracts with professional assessors to re evaluate their property Tipton said The Scott County assessor claims he is going to reevaluate properly in his county and Atlan tics property will be by the Cass County assessor These cities and counties which have not yet indicated they will comply with the commissions or der are the cities of Davenport ort Dodge and Oskaloosa and luthrie Clark Tama Lyon and Ihickasaw counties Tipton said Tax officials cities anji

adjournment acted on nearly 250 bills Friday and passed appropriation measures totaling more than million Funds halt 4lane road to Lake By ROBERT H SPIEGEL GlobeGaxette Editor the average about 6300 vehicles use Highway 18 between Mason City and Clear Lake each day Carl F Schach engineer of planning for the Iowa State Highway commission says when a traffic count reaches 4800 we start thinking then and there about making it a four lane highway At this point however nothing has gone beyond the thinking stage on making a fourlane link between Mason City and Clear Lake Its matter of funds said Chief Engineer L M Clauson We know this stretch of No 18 has one of the highest trafjjc counts in the state and we re alize that Interstate 35 when finished will add to it Clauson said the highway commission is watching the situ ation particularly now that the interstate route has been set Paying is scheduled for com pletion nearly to the Minnesota border by 1958 Eventually he said the en tire stretch of Highway 18 be tween Mason City and Garner must be considered as a four A 1H2 study of traffic volume on Iowa primary roads showed an average movement of about 3150 vehicles daily on Highway 18 between Garner and Ventura The count was about 4100 be tween Ventura and the west limits of Clear Lake This increases to a 6300 aver age between Clear Lake and Mason City It has reached 10000 to 12 000 during the summer said Schach Scheduling of such nrojecls is done through a sufficiency guide This is a rating system for ail Iowa primary roads on the basis of structural adequacy and service to motorists Maximum sufficiency is 100 points Clauson said that current funds permit scheduling projects on roads under 25 in the suf ficiency rating The latest available ratings extend through 1961 At that time Highway 18 was given three ratings on sections be tween Mason City and Clear Lake It was rated only 20 for the mile of 22footwidc paving just west of the city limits of Mason City The next mile to the wfist was rated 18 That rating was given however before that piece of highway was widened from 20 to 24 feet The remaining fourmile span to the cast city limits of Clear Lake has a rating of 50 Thats definitely ow said Schach As the traffic increases oncu the interstate is opened the sufficiency rating is bound to go down even further Clauson looks to a widening of Highway 18 to four lanes as only a temporary measure The ideal solution though existing only as a sketchy line on a map at present would bypass Clear Lake and Mason City to the south Clauson said engineers have discussed running an eastwest fourlane highway about two miles south of the line of High way 106 H would start at the inter state heading east to Charles City It would pass north and cast of Charles City then curve to the south on the general line of Highway 218 The proposed highway eventually would join Highway 20 west of Waterloo This vould take through traf fic away from the heart of Ma son City said Clauson Mn son City already has enough problems with Highway 65 on Federal Avenue There arc lots of things like this we would like to do U we had the money T1 hot of AX UK DOWN IN DOORWAY
