Kaiser First to Break Up Solid Front Court Ruling Set Today on T-H Law Strike Injunction PITTSBURGH Steel Co., one of the nation's non-struck steel producers, today followed the lead 'of Kaiser Steel Corp. and signed a similar agreement with the United Steelworkers.

Raymond Ramos apparent- ly suffered a broken neck when he was clipped on the chin, hospital Attendants said, Paralytic Executed for Killing Policeman WETIIERSFIELD, Conn. violent life of Frank Wojculewicz came to an end Monday night as he sat paralyzed and quiet, an invalid, in the electric chair. For seven years, he had lain in state prison here, waiting execution for the slaying of two men in a rob- bery in which he himself was shot in the spine. His ap- peals failed. He was pushed into the death chamber in a wheel chair. Four guards quietly lifted his wasted body and strapped him to the wooden death chair. It had been specially modified because his legs could not bend. An attachment was placed in front of the chair. ELECTRICITY COURSED THROUGH Wojculcwitz' body for about two minutes. Then his body was taken away. Thus ended the life of a 41-year-old man who was a juvenile delinquent at 10 and later a robber, thief, boot- legger, attempted killer.

Kuznetsov, deputy Soviet foreign minis- ter, told the General Assem- bly's 82-nation Political Com- mittee the Khrushchev plan had met with general acclaim both in the United Nations and elsewhere. He said approval of the Soviet proposal by the As- sembly would be an im- portant contribution to end- ing the threat of war, but he offered no formal resolution asking such endorsement. The Western powers and the Soviet Union are now car- rying on private negotiations on a resolution referring the Soviet plan and other pro- posals to the new 10-nation Disarmament Committee.
