Striking T ugmen Reject
Rockefeller T ruce Plea
NEW YORK. Jan. 21 (AP).—Striking railroad tugmen early
today rejected Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller’s truce plea in the
12-day harbor walkout which has stalled commuters and im
periled city food and fuel supplies.
.Negotiations recessed shortly before last midnight but were
resumed at mid-morning.
Gov. Rockefeller had urged members of the three striking
marine unions to join in a to
day armistice "in the interest
of toe people of the city and
the State of New York."
The unions wired the Gov
ernor that the truce was “un
acceptable” because "it only
serves the interests of the rail
roads and is against the interest
of all railroad employes and
their families.”
Snow Adds to Woes
In another telegram to the
New York City Central Labor
Council, the unions called the
Rockefeller plea “a danger
to accepted collective bargain
ing procedures affecting the
entire trade union movement.”
Gov. Rockefeller’s request
came as the metropolitan New
York area was shoveling out
from under a 10-inch snowfall
that had worsened the already
snarled food-and-fuel supply
lines.
The tugboat workers—6oo of
them have managed with
skimpy picket lines to tie up
the New York Central Railroad
as far west as Cleveland, the
New Haven between Boston
and fNew York, and railroad
ferry service from New Jersey.

A howling blizzard that stag

Johnson
Hailed in
New Role
By the Associated Press
Lyndon B. Johnson drew
praise from Republicans as
well as Democrats today in
presiding over the Senate for
the first time in his new role
as Vice President. •

happy to see him occupying
the chair.” He wished him
"good luck and good fort<me.’’
Senator 'Dirksen, of Illinois,
the Republican minority leader,
concurred and said he had
"fond recollections” of his rela
tions with Senator Johnson in
their many meetings as oppos
ing party leaders.
Senator Yarborough, Demo
crat of Texas, told his col
leagues it was a great honor
and privilege for Texans to
have Senator Johnson occupy
the chair once held by John
Nance Garner, another Texan.
Senator Blakley, Democrat
of Texas, who was appointed
to the Senate when Mr.
Johnson resigned his Texas
seat and who is a candidate to
succeed himself when the ap
pointment expires, said that
Texan* "are extrwnely grati
fied to have such a I distin
guished son” in the vice presi
dency.
Altogether, about a dozen
Republican Senators joined in
congratulating Mr. Johnson.
They said that despite political
differences, they were confi
dent he would be fair and ob
jective in his rulings as the
Senate's presiding officer.
In the midst of the round of {
tributes. Senator Cotton, Re
publican of New Hampshire,
got a laugh from the well-filled
galleries by getting up and say
ing simply, "Mr. President, me
too.”

Corporation Shakeup
Follows Bank Closing
SHELDON, lowa, Jan. 21 (AP).—Ramifications of the $2
million shortage that closed the Sheldon National Bank have
resulted in an executive shakeup of the Northern Biochemical
Corp., whose financial structure was tied closely with the bank.
Harold Kistner, Jr., 35. was removed last night as president
of the corporation through action of the board of directors.
The step had been recommended by Elliott Roosevelt of
Denver, economic adviser of
the company, who may be given
the reins as operating officer
of the firm. Mr. Roosevelt is
the son of the late President
Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Woman in Jail
Principal stockholder in Bi
ochemical was Mrs. Burnice
Iverson Geiger, 58. who admit
ted responsibility for the huge
shortage that closed the bank,
of which she was assistant
cashier. She held 130,000 of the
firm's 350,000 shares. Mrs.
Geiger is in jail at Sioux City.
Mr. Kistner is the son of
Harold Kistner, ar., who con
trols the formulas for the prod
ucts that Biochemical sells—
additives for livestock and
poultry feeds. The young Mr.
Kistner is president of Bio-
Emze, Inc., which operates at
a farm at Hospers, lowa.

Dairymen Back
New Foundation
ROANOKE, Va., Jan. 21
(AP).—Dairy farmers of Vir
ginia voted yesterday to back
financially the Dairy Founda
tion of Virginia at the final
business meeting of the 54th
Virginia State Dairymen's As
sociation convention here.
The dairy foundation, or
ganized last year, aims to
strengthen teaching, extension
and reascarch programs at the
Department of Dairy Science
at Virginia Tech.
Dairymen are expected to
contribute to the foundation at
the rate of 4 cents for each 100
pounds of milk produced in a
specific month to be chosen
later. Calculations indicate
that about $35,000 a year will
be raised.
The Virginia Dairy Products
Association, an organization of
ice cream manufacturers and
milk processors, at Its meeting
in Roanoke Monday, voted to
contribute to the foundation.
It will match the contribution
of the dairymen.

Farmers in Italy
Battle Policemen
MILAN, Italy, Jan. 21 (AP).
—Ona-thousand North Italian
dairy farmers and 200 police
clashed today in a new "Battle
of Butter” at nearby Pavia.
The farmers poured into
town by train and automobile
and tried to march on the city
hall to protest against Italy's
import of low-priced foreign
butter, largely from Denmark.
Police drove them back in
their third clash with the farm
ers in three days.
Today after being driven off
the farmers swarmed back
, again by noon and formed siege
lines around the Pavia Chamber
of Commerce. They hurled
snowballs at windows of the
building, and paraded with
signs reading “the government
gives subsidies to the movies
but not to the farmers” and
“stop foreign butter.”
Traffic in most streets of the
center of the city of 70,000 came
to an almost complete stand
still. - |

MILAN, Italy, Jan. 21 (AP).
—The Milan state attorney has
ordered the seizure of all copies
of a book about the life of
Benito Mussolini’s mistress,
Claretta Petacci, pending legal
action on a protest by her
family.
The book, "Claretta,” was
written by Italian Journalist
Franco Bandini and published
last November at $2 a copy by
a Milan publishing house.
Claretta’s relatives protested
that the book was a violation
of the right of privacy. The
author and the publishers hold
it justified "by the right of
historic research.”
State Attorney Gian Paolo
Bini yesterday ordered all
copies of the book on stands or
in the publishers’ offices seized

Claretta and Mussolini were
shot to death by Italian par
