No pitched battles were re

after a violent week end the

scattered disturbances fright

Shops closed in districts
normally quiet. Offices which
had maintained business as
usual were closing and sending
their employes home. In some
districts no sign of life was
visible. Even private residences,
were tightly shuttered.
Blast Near University
During the morning a bomb
exploded near the American
University, and another wept
off near the Finance Ministry.
An outbreak of shooting was
reported from the Moslem
quarter where followers of
Rebel Leader Saeb Salam hold
the area.
Over the entire city hung an
atmosphere of tension as though
the population expected a ma

Rogers Raps Congress'
Inaction on Judges
ntsr SUB Writer
Attorney General Rogers today directly attacked Con
gress for faUing to provide the additional Federal judges
Reeded to curb the rising spiral of delays in the administra
tion of Justice.
Addressing more than 150 judges, leaders of the bar
and court administrators gathered for the Attorney General’s
j Conference on Court Conges-
I tion, Mr. Rogers declared:
"I think it Is disgraceful that
there has been no action ana,
in fact, so little apparent Inter
est in this legislation, which
directly affects the individual
rights and liberties of so many
of our people.”
He referred to recommenda
tions pending before Congress
since 1955 for 45 more Federal
judges. He also referred to
recommended legislation that
would reUeve chief judges of
Federal courts of their admin
istrative responsibilities after
they reach the age of 70.
Justice Only Product
"Our profession has just one
product —Justice for Indivi
duals.” he told the judicial and
bar leaders. "We must expedite
the administration of justice
so the right result Is obtained
at the right time for the per
isons involved.”
The Attorney General warned
that "we are going to be con
stantly under attack” because
of delays In getting cases to
trial because the administra
tion of justice "is so vital to
our way of life.”
Mr. Rogers said there is no
justification for stalling in pro
viding the needed additional
judges because of economy. He
said delays in getting Govern
ment cases to trial are costing
the Government millions of dol
lars a year in Interest pay.

Plea Renewed
Senate Debate
In Final Stage
SUr SUIT Writer
Senator Qoldwater, Repub
lican of Arizona, today renewed
his charge that the pending
labor-cbntrol bill falls to give
adequate protection to the
rights of the rank-and-file
members of unions.
Taking the floor as the Sen
ate began what may be the last
day of debate. Senator Gold
! water listed only two provisions
of the bill as meeting recom
mendations of the McClellan
i committee, which investigated
improper labor activities.
The Arizona Republican said
some Senators have been too
much concerned with not in
fringing on the power “of cer
tain power-mad union bosses."
“No, the man this bill was
supposed to help has become
the forgotten man,” Senator
Goldwater added.
Plus and Minus Sections
On the plus side, he placed
only the sections requiring the
filing of financial reports, and
the controls placed on national
unions in establishing trustee
ships over locals.
On'the minus side, he said,
the Senate has failed to impose
fiduciary responsibilities on
union officers or to guarantee
democratic processes in election
of union officers or changing
union constitutions.
Basic Provisions Intact
Despite all the argument that
has swirled about the bill, its
basic provisions remain intact.
It is designed to help drive
racketeers and other crooks
out of the labor movement and
to give rank and file members
more control over union affairs.
It also would make a number
of changes in the IM7 Taft-
Hartley Labor Relations Act.

Cleanup of Teamsters
Sought by Monitors
Steps Taken by Panel to Oust
Ex-Convicts as Union Officials
Star stall Writer
Monitors trying to clean up the Teamsters are working
with the Senate Rackets Committee to kick criminals out of
; union office, The Star learned today.
Martin F. O'Donoghue, new chairman of the union’s
! court-appointed Board of Monitors, disclosed that the watch
dog panel has asked the committee for a list of ex-convicts
now holding office in the Mg
truckers’ union.
Armed with the list, Mr. ,
O'Donoghue will try to enforce
a provision of the union’s con
stitution that has been ignored
for a long time.
According to his interpreta
| tion, the constitution requires l
that union officers must be eli
gible for fidelity bonding.
Not Eligible for Bond ,
"Obviously,” he said, "an ex
convict could not get a bond :
and so would- be ineligible to
hold office.”

Committee led directly to ex- 1
