Commissioner Sam K. Neal said today he has decided against ask ing Gov. Gordon Browning to send National Guardsmen here. Mr. Neal's decision, awaited since an outbreak of gunfire wounded four men yesterday, came after hours of investigation which carried far into the night. The safety chief said he will keep “enough” State highway patrolmen here to prevent recur rence of violence. 75 Patrolmen on Hand. Gov. Browning has indicated he will follow Commissioner Neal's recommendation in the Enka strife. He and Adj. Gen. Sam T. Wallace came here yesterday with 75 highway patrolmen to restore1 order. Gov. Browning, returning last night from Washington, said he would await word from Commis sioner Neal and Gen. Wallace be fore deciding whether guardsmen are needed. "All but eight or nine” of the nearly 100 men and women picked up for questioning after the gun fire erupted early yesterday were released during the night, said the safety commissioner. Commissioner Neal said he ex pects charges to be placed against others today in connection with the seige of the strike ridden plant. The 13-week-old strike by the CIO Textile Workers Union has brought repeated violent inci dents since the plant reopened for production late in May. 25 Minutes of Gunfire.

Chairman Kefauver of the in vestigating committee today pro posed concerted action to deter-j mine if the Continental Press Service, nation-wide race infor- j mation distributing system, should be prosecuted on anti-trust charges. He disclosed that he has already consulted with Assistant Attorney General Peyton Ford on the ques tion. Encouragement a Problem. Presumably on the basis of this consultation. Senator Kefauver said prosecution of Continental posed this problem: If, through Government action, more race news distributors can get into the business, gambling information will become available to more people and might encour age more gambling. Senator Kefauver insisted, how ever, that anti-trust laws should be enforced regardless of the pos sible outcome. He said he believed Justice De partment and Federal Communi cations Commission officials should work together on that one. 32 Million in Turf Taxes Since the legalization of pari mutuels in the state in 1932.

I _ about half as big as his first round opponent, Frank Staszowskl of Torrington, Conn., was having trouble cutting the big fellow down to his size and at the end of six holes George was 1 down. The Woodland Club pro had to settle for a halve in par 4s on the first hole when Staszowskl laid him a dead stymie, and Fazio lost the next hole when he missed a 2-foot putt. After halving the third in par, George won the par 3 fourth with .a conceded birdie when his opponent was in trouble. They halved the fifth in pars, but Fazio lost the sixth when his opponent holed a 10-footer for a birdie 4 and Fazio missed a putt half that length.

Sam Snead, medalist and defending champion, and Sammy Byrd, former Yankee outfielder, were last off the tee. It was a hot, sticky day with showers threatening. Lloyd Man grum and Pete Cooper also were late starters. In a match between two former PGA champions, Henry Picard dropped three straight birdie putts on the front nine and was 2 up on Bob Hamilton at the turn.

Lew lost the 11th when Gianferante holed a 15-footer for a birdie, won the 12th with a “gimme” birdie putt to square it, but went one down on the 13th. Both were trapped but Gianfer ante got doajp in one putt. Lew's regulation par on the rug ged par-3 14th squared the match and Worsham, who won the Na tional Open as a Washingtonian in 1947, ended it quickly on the 16th and 17th with a great niblick shot for a conceded birdies, and a regulation par to Gianferante's bogey 4. 2, Charged With Avoiding D.

He said his scientists already have worked out a new way of getting uranium out of uranium' ore more economically. The vast Harwell laboratory was thrown open to the press for the first time yesterday. Top atom scientists showed American and European newsmen—no Russians or East Europeans were invited— their 110-inch underground cyclo tron, their house-high atomic pile and many of their formerly secret proceses.
