Blatnik Measure Would Pave Way For Cleanup of Potomac River

By Wes Barthelmes Staff Reporter

A stronger, water pollu- tion control .bill won House passage by 338-31 yesterday after surviving stiff opposi- tion to a disputed key provi- sion authorizing a half-bil- lion dollars in Federal grants for sewage treatment con- struction.

The Bilatnik measure, if it wins Senate approval, would open the door for a coordinated

attack on the severe Potomac River pollution.

Republicans, with some Democratic support, failed in two assaults on the financing provision, which also is opposed by the Health, Education and Welfare Department.

The bill's supporters beat down a motion to eliminate the provision. The move, lead by Rep. George A. Dondero (R- Mich.) lost on a standing vote of 109 to 98, and on a tally vote by 118 to 112.

The bill then weathered a motion to recommit to the House Public Works Committee with instruction to delete the construction fAimancing feature The vote was 213 to 165.

Final passage was on a roll. call vote, at the insistence of Rep. Joseph W. Martin Jr. (R- Mass.), minority leader.

Two suburban Congressmen, Reps. Joel T. Broyhill (R-Va.) and DeWitt S. Hyde (R-Md.), bucked their leadership to sup- port the bill on a’l tests

The disputed section author- izes appropriation of $50 million & year over a lv-year period in grants to states, municipalities and agencies, such as the Inter- state Commission on the Poto- mac River Basin, for planning and construction of treatment works.

Rep. John A. Blatnik (D- Minn.), author of the bill, said the authorization will serve to “stimulate local programs’ to eombat pollution, which he termed a “national disgrace deserving of a coordinated nae tional attention.”

Opponents, such as Rep Clarence J. Brown (R-Ohio said it “embarks our Govern- ment on a new program of sub- sidies .. . that in time will be- come an unbearable burden.”

Half of the funds availiable in any one year would have to go to localities with a popula tion of 125,000 or under. The maximum permissibje Federal contribution for any one pro) ect would be $300,000.

The existing 1948 Water Pollution Control Act that runs out June 30 provides for Fed eral construction loans at 2 per cent annual mterest over a l0-year period. However HEW reports no projects have been constructed under the provision. Blatnik waved a bot. tle of what he said was heavily sedimented Potomae River water before the House in em phasizing that point

The bill in other respects won overwhelming indorsement by those who differed on the construction grants

CTC to Union:

No Franchise, No Contract

Broadwater Says Firm May Not Be In Business Aug. 15

By Richard L. Lyons

Staff Reporter

Capital Transit Co. told its union employes yesterday that it would not discuss proposals for a new labor contract uniess and until its franchise is re- stored.

The union on Tuesday handed the company demands for a new one-year contract to take effect on Aug. 15. This is the day on which CTC will be out of business under present law

CTC President J. A. B. Broad- water pointed this out in a let- ter to union president Walter J. Bierwagon and added that “this company therefore is nat im a@ position at this time to give consideration to your re- quests...”

The compeny would meet

with the union “to discuss and’

negotiate the terms of a labor agreement” if the CTC fran- chise were restored, Broadwa- ter stated

The union apparently had not expected the company to nego- tiate under present conditions But it was required to file desired changes now and hand. ed them to CTC because it is still its employer

But the union's lawyer! nard Cushman, observed “it takes time to work contract. Sixty days is too long a time

Last year similar demands for a 25-cent hourly wage boost and other benefits were not settled until the city had gone through a 52-day transit strike. Congress had canceled CTC's franchise and the city raised fares l0-cent wage

If the ques- tion of who is to operate transit after Aug. 14 drags on until close to the deadline, the city might head into another strike she union announced it would agree to submit to ar bitration points in dispute on Aug. 14. The company refused to arbitrate last year, pleading inability to pay. Commissioner Robert E Laughiin said the city will meet at 11 a. m. Friday with banker Daniel W. Bell for a report on Heli’s plan for CTC to buy out the controlling in terest of Louis FE. Wolfson. Me Laughiin said Bell hopes to have something firm to offer.” Congressional transit con ferees have agreed to recom mend restoration of the com pany’s franchise if Bell shows he can swing his deal and can agree with the Commissioners on terms of a new franchise Melaughiin met yesterday with Morris Fox, Washington trucker, who has been trying ‘for months to raise money to buy the Wolfson interest in CTC Fox's attorney, Edward F. Culladay, told reporters Fox wanted to let the Commission- ers know that “persons of strong financial interests as- sociaied with Mr. Fox are working actively to acquire the Capital Transit franchises.” McLaughlin said: “They said they had money.

Between Loyalty, Security Cases ~

By Murrey Marder Stef Reporter

Harry P. Cain testified yesterday that until last week “the President had thought that a clear distinc- tion was being made between loyalty cases and security cases” in Federal employ- ment.

But the program which Presi- dent Eisenhower himself cre- ated in 1953 by Executive or- der, Cain said, “is an all-inclu- sive, allencompassing stand- ard which mixes loyalty, se- curity and suitability indiscrimi- nately.”

This program dropped only the use of the term “loyalty.” It put under a blanket “secur- ity” tag, Cain noted, cases of employes suspected of being disloyal, along with the “in- discreet,” those who “drink too much or loaf on the job or become insubordinate or inef- ficient.”

Cain, who has charged that the President's advisers have kept from him the facts of the program which he authorized three years ago, told the Senate Subcommittee on Constitutional Rights:

“The President evidenced a déep concern and interest when} | suggested to him last week that matters relating to se- curity should be separated from loyalty and that suitabil- ity should be separated from security.”

The former Republican Sen- ator, a member of the Subver- sive Activities Control Board, put before the Subcommittee a new sepies of “abuses” which he urged it to investigate.

Cain said there is “a bother- some assumption” that “fabri- cated” evidence may have been used in the loyalty case against William Henry Taylor.

raylor, an International Mon- etary Fund official, for years has denied under oath a charge by former Communist courier Elizabeth Bentley that he was a member of a spy ring. Miss Bentley has said she never knew Taylor personally, but that the information was given ner through the ring

In June, 1955. the Interna- tional Organizations Employes Loyalty Board ruled not only that Taylor was a loyalty risk, but said it was “convinced” he had engaged in espionage and was placed in the Treasury De- partment by Communists in the 1949s for that purpose.

But six months later, that Board completely reversed it self. It found there was “not

AMA Asks U.S. Drop Rule of

Salk Vaccine

CHICAGO, June 13 #—The American Medical Association asked the Government today to get out of the Salk polio vac- cine business.

The AMA's ruling House of Delegates adopted a resolution requesting the Federal Govern- ment to “return the genera! wholesale and retail purchase of Salk Antipolio vaccine to normal commercial channels.” |

It said the Government should cease purchase of the vaccine except as needed for “essential public health needs and for distribution to the in- digent population of the Na- tion.”

The House approved a com- mittee report saying that the Government purchase of Salk vaccine “brings again to the fore Government interference in medical practice.” It said such “interference” is contrary to AMA principles

The Government, with an ap- propriation of $39 million, be- gan distributing the vaccine through the United States Pub- lhe Health Service in May, 1955. Previously it was controlled by the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis A small amount was distributed com- mercially in April, 1955

Gets Sanity Test; She Fired Lawyer, Balked at Oath

By Eve Edstrom Stef Reporter Despite a defiant refusal by a District couple to dis close his whereabouts, a 4 year-old boy abducted Sun-

\day from Junior Village was

back in the custody of Dis- trict officials last night.

Earlier in the day Geraldine Little was hospitalized for mental observation and her husband, Floyd, was sent to jail for contempt of court.

In a hectic Juvenile Court session, Mrs. Little would not raise her right hand to take an Oath, told her attorney that he no longer represented her, and informed the court that the child was “in the bulrushes.”

Mrs. Little. who has been in two previous legal! battles over the custody of other children, was escorted out by United States marshals and taken to District General for a 30-day observation period | Her husband, more quietly but just as adamantly, refused to produce the child “forth with.”

Juvenile Court Judge Edith H. Cockrill then placed him under a continuing six-honth

junder for contempt, with the

warning that an additional day

would be added onto his sem tence for each day he refused to divulge the child's where- abouts.

Judge Cockrill issued an at tachment for the blonde, blue- eyed youngster. She had placed the boy in the temporary cus- tody of the Welfare Depart- ment on June 1 until a hearing could be held to determine whether the Littles were fit to care for the boy. The child was reported missing from Junior Village last Sunday after a couple, identified as the Littles, nad visited him

Acting on Judge Cockrill’s order, United States marshals scoured the city for the boy and also checked an unfounded tip Lnat ine DOoY was in Maryland.

Details of the recovery of the child or his exact whereabouts last night were not disclosed. The investigation which led to finding him was conducted by United States Marshal Carlton Beal!

It appeared likely, however, that the bov was found within the District's boundaries. Beall had said a Juvenile Court order was not effective if the child was outside the District.

“The Marsha! did a w r- ful job.” Judge Codckrill said when she learned of the young- ster’s return.

Earlier yesterday a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent questioned welfare workers to determine whether the case represented a violation of Fed. eral law. The FBI said it was not officially active in the case.

Numerous Washington Post and Times Herald readers sug- gested that the Junior Village child might be Steven Damman who was kidnaped in East Meadow, N. Y. last October. But Nassau County police said a footprint check ruled out this possibility

In court

yesterday, Mrs. Little said she had written proof that the Junior Village child had been turned over to her by his natural mother shnortivy after birth. But. she said, her “lips were sealed” he. cause she promised the mother “not to involve her in any like this Mrs. Little continued that her husband attempted to re. turn the boy to his natural mother in a downtown dime store Tuesday but left with the child after a Welfare De.

Knowland came out for an unspecified increase contin \gent on “additional facts” being presented by the Administra tion—after the Foreign Rela tions Committee spent a full day in closed session, reviewing the bill. Chairman Walter F George (D-Ga.) said he hopes for formal committee action by Friday and Senate considera tion next week.

George, who himself has de- clared for restoration of at least $500 million of the cut in NATO and military aid, appeared un certain of the Senate outcome however.

George said E. Perkins Mc Guire, Deputy Assistant De fense Secretary for the Mutua! Assistance Program, spent much of the afternoon supply ing data to the committee on unexpended foreign aid bal ances and answering questions about where the new money would go.

Asked whether the Senators got the answers they were seek ing, George said

“We got a lot of information but it’s hard to tell whether we are less confused or more con- | fused.”

Ten Senate Republicans joined in a statement appeal. ing to their colleagues to “up hold the staunch leadership for peace which the President rep resents for all the world.”

Tuohy issued his announce- ment at a luncheon session at the 39th anniversary conventon of the National Coal Assn. He praised John L. Lewis, presi- dent of the United Mine Work- ers Union, for proposing the cooperative shipping venture four years ago.
