Near Walkout in Southland Talks Continue With Deadline Sunday Midnight A strike against Southland markets may be called at mid- night Sunday by union meat cutters. Negotiations between ths Food Employers Council and the Amalgamated Meat Cut- ters were to resume today-in I.os Angeles after a heated Thursday meeting which con- tinued to 1 a.m. today. The council said the union's reply to a new offer was an insult. The council offered a 60.8- cents package over a five year period if the union would agree to relax what the em- ployers called "vicious featherbedding." i THE UNION denied the featherbedding charge and re- jected the offer. Harold Woodward, Butch- ers' official representing Harbor Local 551 in the. ne- gotiations, said the basic is- sue was the proposal by the Winter, accompanied by employers to put meat wrap- roaring 70 -mile-per-hour jres on a four-hour day.

LONDON A new book of wartime memoirs says Gen. Dwight D. Eisen- hower played golf instead of guiding Allied military preparations at a crucial stage of World War II in Europe. The book is based on the diaries of Field Marshal Viscount Alanbrooke, who as Sir Alan Brooke was chairman of the British chiefs of staff in the war. The second installment of his diaries and correspond- ence is incorporated in "Triumph in the which goes on sale here Monday. It was compiled by Sir Arthur Bryant from brooke, now living in re- retirement in the south of England. In Washington, White Hous e Press Secretary James C. Hagerty was asked for comment on Allanbrooke's statements. Hagerty's reply was: "I don't even have a 'no comment'." IN THE FIRST install- ment, Alanbrooke rapped Eisenhower as a man whose strong point, was charm rather than military ability.

IN HIS opening at the trial Thursday, Scotti told the jury that Carbo's underworld grip in boxing was so tight that he once represented both fighters in a championship elimination bout. Scott said Carbo held "a summit meeting" with James D. Norris, one-time head of the now-dissolved Interna- tional Boxing Club at which Carbo, dictated the terms. "The power Carbo had to secure boxing matches stemmed largely from his great influence over the In- ternational Boxing the prosecutor continued.

HIS PHONE INVENTION Tackle Booby Trap Entangles Burglar MIAMI, Fla. do-it- yourself way to foil a bur- glary in a place of business has been invented by a Miami tackle shop man. All you need is a thin fishing line, a casting fly cork and your telephone. Carl Dachton., 34, proved it works when he hooked a 15-year-old burglar in his tackle shop Thursday. Here's how to do it: Take the telephone re- ceiver in your place of busi- ness off the hook. Dial your home number to the last digit. Plug the cork in the finger hole to hold the dial on the last number. The cork is threaded with a thin, almost invisi- ble fishing line. You reel the line along the main pas-'. sageway of your establish-., ment. The trap is set. When a thief steps on the fishing line, the cork pops out. The dial whirls back, and the home phone-b- rings. In the predawn hours Thursday, Dachton heard his home phone ring. Hastening to the shop, he spotted a prowler inside. The police were summoned and within minutes squad cars were on the scene. The thief was hooKed and turned over to juvenile authorities.
