Berra went down swinging. Erskine walked Mantle on four pitches. Erskine's eighth successive ball put Woodling on and loaded the bases. Martin swung at a 1-1 pitch and slammed a 400- foot triple over Robinson's head in left center, clearing the bases.

Word Awaited From Kidnapers In Kansas City KANSAS' CITY MV-Cold-blooded kidnapers, apparently adopting de- laying tactics, today kept the fate of 6 year-old Bobby Greenlease from his anguished parents. .The child, son of a millionaire automobile dealer, was abducted two days ago while attending clas- ses at the French Institute of Notre Dame De Sion, a private school. A spokesman for the family said no contact with the person or per- sons holding the boy had been made. The father, Robert C. Longshoremen's Strike in N.Y. Seems Certain NEW YORK W) The world's largest port girded today for a longshoremen's strike, which ap- peared inevitable with the deadline only hours away. The walkout threat cast a shadow of possibly serious economic con- sequences for New York and other ports from Portland, Maine, to Hampton Roads, Va. New York's mammoth port also was concerned with the possibility of violence between two rival dock unions during a strike. Police re- inforced details along wharves. The union the In- ternational Longshoremen's Asso- ciation recently ousted by the AFL, against the new Inter- national Longshoremen's Associa- tion, AFL turn the strike into one of the bloodiest waterfront struggles in years. A wage contract dispute between the now-independent ILA and the New York Shipping Association, representing 170 companies, is at the root of the strike threat. The deadline is midnight tonight. Not Involved The ILA-AFL is not involved in this contract fight, but the new union is making a determined bid to win over the ILA rank-and-file and may try to keep its adherents here at work, A strike would be a test of strength between the two groups. The AFL chartered the new union after ousting the ILA last week for failure to purge itself of racketeering elements.' ILA demands for a 13-cent-an- hour package wage-welfare boost were rejected last night by the employers' association, which promptly appealed to President Ei- Greenlease, has said he believes senhower to invoke the national professional criminals are in-! emergency provisions of the Taft- volved, making it more likely Bob-1 Hartley Labor Act to block the by will be released unharmed. strike- However, it probably would Police reported they had ob- tained no new information that would lead them to believe they are on the right trail. take about a week to obtain any action, in the form of an 80-day injunction, under the law. Shippers Henze Charged With 1st Degree Manslaughter Arraignment Delayed Until Thursday for Legal Conference A charge of first degree man- slaughter this morning was filed against Norman Henze, 32, 1057 E. 4th St., one of the participants in a Saturday evening fight on West 5th street. Henze was arrested by police Sunday morning after the other principal, Harry Verdick, 39, 1067 E. 5th St., died of a skull fracture apparently suffered when he fell on a sidewalk at West 5th and North Baker streets after being struck by Henze. The charge was contained in a formal complaint prepared by County Atty. W. Kenneth Nissen and signed by Chief Police A. J. Bingold. Contents of Complaint The complaint stated, in part, that Henze "without a design to effect death under circumstances amounting to murder in any de- gree and while engaged in commit- ting a misdemeanor affecting the person of Harry Verdick did kill the said Harry Verdicfc by striking (him) on the body, face and chin with his clenched hands and fists causing him to fall to a sidewalk and strike his head (who) did thereby die." Henze, who has been held in the city jail since Sunday morning, was accompanied -by bis wife in the courtroom this morning. After the formal complaint had been read, Judge E. D. Libera ex- plained that because of the serious- ness of the charge, a plea could not be entered in the municipal court. Rights Pointed Out He pointed out that such proceed- ings would be a matter for con- sideration by the District Court but that the defendant was entitled to a preliminary hearing in the lower court. Judge Libera stated that the pur- pose of such a hearing or examin- ation would be to determine whe- ther the offense alleged in the complaint did occur and whether there were reasonable grounds to believe the defendant responsible. The court added, after his ex- planation, that perhaps Henze would prefer to consult with an attorney before he made any deci- sion as to whether or not he wished to have the preliminary hearing. "Oh, of course, I'll have to see an attorney about Henze re- plied. "In that Judge Libera said, "we'll continue this matter for another day to give you time to contact an attorney." Bond Set at The court continued the case un- til Thursday morning and, at the recommendation of County Atty. Nissen, set the bond at In default of posting the bond, the defendant will be held in the city jail. Henze's arrest followed the death at a. m. Sunday of Verdick who was found, at a post mortem (Continued on Page 21, Column 4) MANSLAUGHTER 2 British Warships Collide in Maneuvers LONDON MV-Two British warships, part of a mock enemy strik- ing force attacking NATO shipping, smashed together early today near Iceland. The admiralty said the ships had reported 32 sailors injured. The ships were the cruiser Swiftsure and the fleet destroyer Diamond. The British Assn. said preliminary reports disclosed fire broke out on the Swiftsure after the crash but quickly was brought un- :Severe" damage to No Retail Sales Tax Contemplated, Eisenhower Says der control "Severe" damage to the cruiser was centered on the starboard side near the bridge structure, it added. The Diamond was damaged for- ward, the press association re- ported. The crash occurred before dawn 80 miles south of Iceland. The Navy said both ships had with- drawn from the vast Allied exer- cises, Operation Mariner, now ranging over the North Atlantic and North Sea. The task force including the British ships, was due to rendez- vous today with the main body of the fleet that includes the U. S. battleship Iowa and British, Cana- dian and American aircraft car- riers. Britain's only battleship in active service, the Vanguard, was leading the small British force. The Swiftsure, which carries a I peacetime complement of 855 men, was playing the part of a sea I raider, similar to the role of the famed Nazi cruiser Scharnhorst which terrorized Allied shipping in the North Atlantic and North Sea during World War II. The admiralty spokesman said the movements of the Swiftsure and the Diamond "are not known precisely, but undoubtedly they will be docking for survey." Vishinsky Warns U.N. to Korean Decision WASHINGTON (ff) President Eisenhower said today his admin- istration has no intention of pro- posing a retail sales tax. He did not rule out, however, the possibil- ity of a manufacturer's excise tax. In a brief news conference dis- cussion, Eisenhower declined to predict whether it might be neces- sary for the administration to ask for new taxes of some kind to Change j UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. If) Chief Soviet delegate Andrei Y. Vishinsky told the United Nations 'today "there was no possibility of hoping" that the proposed Korean political conference will meet un- less the U.N. reconsiders its pre- vious decision. Vishinsky referred to a U.N, de- cision taken last month to exclude neutrals from the c o n f e r e n c e, scheduled to open by Oct. 28. The fiery Russian demanded that the 60-nation political committee take up immediately a debate on suggestions from Communist China and North Korea that India and other neutrals be invited and Rus- sia be asked to sit in also as a neutral. He heaped scorn on a proposal by chief U.S. delegate Henry Ca- bot Lodge Jr., that the conference could decide for itself whether to invite some neutral powers. Before the meeting, the United States and Britain were confident they had enough votes to prevent reopening of debate on the ques- tion. Whether Vishinsky's warning on possible collapse of conference plans would have an adverse effect was not immediately apparent. its levy scheduled for Jan. 1. Under present law, individual in- come taxes are due to come down 10 per cent with the new year. The administration has said this will go through as scheduled. Eisenhower covered a variety of subjects in the news conference, his first in 10 weeks. On other subjects, the President: 1. Said that barring unforeseen developments, the administration does not expect a special session of Congress to be called for action on raising the debt limit. 2. Called Russia's hydrogen bomb progress a matter of the greatest significance calling for prayerful study by the United States, but said he is not ready to assay pub- licly the effect the Soviet develop- ment might have on this country's defense spending program. 3. Said the imminence of a dock strike in the New York harbor area has been called officially to his attention and the matter has been referred to the Labor De- partment for study. 4. Said he had no comment on when he will be ready to name a successor to Martin P. Durkin as Secretary of Labor, but took sharp issue with Durkin's conten- tion that the president broke an agreement to support proposed changes in the Taft-Hartley law. Eisenhower said that to his know- ledge he has never broken an agreement with associates. 5. Repeated that he has no plans to go into individual states in sup- port of individual Republican can- didates for state offices. Governor of California Ike's Choice for Post To Begin Career On Supreme Court- Bench on Monday WASHINGTON UP) President Eisenhower today named Gov. Earl Warren of California to Chief Justice of the United States. The President told his news con- ference the 62-year-old Warren, Republican, will make a great chief justice, and that he will on the bench of the high court when it ojtens its fall session Mon- day. The recess appointment of War- ren as successor to the late Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson is subject to Senate confirmation when Con- gress reconvenes in January.

ABOARD THE CORVETTE FENICE, off Italy Hi _ Prof. Auguste Piccard and his son, Jacques, rode their 52-foot diving jox "Trieste" deeper into the sea :oday than living man ever has gone to a depth of almost two miles.

No other candidate for that office had ever done so. Some of Warren's critics have contended his policies border on socialism. Neutrals have called him a middle-of-the-roader. He terms himself a progressive Re- publican trying to keep up with the times. In one of his campaign speeches he said: "I am convinced the American people are not Socialists and will not tolerate socialistic government. but they are definitely committed to social progress."
