Stephen Hagan, 4, indicates how upset he was yesterday when he got
his arm stuck in a toy Civil War-type cannon while playing in his
Philadelphia home. He was reaching into the barrel for a plastic cannon
ball and jammed his hand between the ball and the breach. Police and

House Expected to OK
Pension Plans Control
Star Staff Writer
A move to put teeth into the 1958 law governing S6O mil
lion in employe pension and welfare plans will give the House
its first labor legislation debate of the 1962 session.
House Labor Committee sponsors of the measure predicted
passage this week by a big margin. Some critics warned that
the proposed investigative and regulatory powers for the Secre-
tary of Labor could cause “fish-1
ing expeditions” against pri
vate business as well as labor
Rules Committee Chairman
Howard W. Smith, Democrat of
Virginia, also warned that the
bill might result in Federal

Roosevelt Sees Need
Representative Roosevelt,
Democrat of California, main
sponsor of the bill, said the
1958 law requiring administra

Chairman Cooley, Democrat
of North Carolina, of the House
Agriculture Committee, struck
back yesterday at what he
called “non-farm vested in
terests” who have been making
"extreme comments” about
President Kennedy’s new farm
“I can only conclude that
those who have been so vio
lent in their criticism must be
speaking for some of the big
corporations that reap millions
from storing surplus wheat,
feed grains and other commod
ities on which the Government
has billions in investments,”
Mr. Cooley said in a statement.
He said more than 40 com
mercial warehouse firms got

Government for grain storage

Some warehousemen have
complained lately that sales of
stored grain by the Govern
ment have left them with large
investments in empty storage
bins. They also said that the
Government has short-circuited
them out of these transactions

Mr. Cooley said “the non
farm beneficiaries of farm pro
grams have accumulated vast
resources and some of them
now are wielding political
power to prevent the enactment
of legislation that will reduce
the surpluses that bulge in
their warehouses.”

’ The pending bill was ap- ’
proved by the committee last:
Bailey Sees Rockefeller
Catering to'Old Guard'
Star Staff Writer
Democratic National Chair
man John M. Bailey charged
last night that Gov. Nelson A.
Rockefeller of New York had
“surrendered to the far right”
by opposing President Ken
nedy’s plan for creation of a
Department of Urban Affairs.
He said the Republican Gov
ernor had switched from his
previous approval of the pro
posal in hopes of winning con
servative support for the 1964
presidential nomination.
Mr. Bailey was replying to
a speech Thursday night in
Des Moines in which Gov. Rock
efeller accused Mr. Kennedy of
"political fakery” in blaming
the Republicans for the defeat
of the urban affairs bill in the
House Rules Committee.
The bill was rejected, 9-6,
with all five committee Re
publicans and four of the 10
Democrats recorded against it.
•Cites Race Issue
Mr. Kennedy has resubmitted
it to- Congress in the form of
a reorganization plan and has
announced he will appoint a
Negro, Robert C. Weaver, to
head the new Cabinet depart
ment if Congress allows it to
come into existence.
Gov. Rockefeller said it was
“demagoguery and deception”
on the President’s part to bring
in a “completely unrelated race
issue” by announcing his inten
tion to name Mr. Weaver.
As for the proposed depart
ment, he said it “might well
be used, in the form proposed,
as a subterfuge to bypass the
constitutional sovereignty of
I the States and to gain direct
August. It was brought up in
the House under suspension of
the rules but fell 12 votes short
of a necessary two-thirds ma
jority. The 244-161 vote at
that time indicated it should
have no trouble getting 'a
straight majority vote for pas
sage this week.
The bill would give the Sec
, retary of Labor investigative
and subpoena powers and au
. thority to bring civil suits to
enjoin violations. The bill
' also would direct him to make
; specific regulations relating to
the filing of reports and other
1 required information. He also

In a statement, Mr. Bailey
I said "the most charitable ex

he cannot be nominated In
1964 without the support of

“There can be no other ex-

Governor Is Challenged
Earlier yesterday, Represent
,: ative Celler, Democrat of New
York, challenged Gov. Rocke
feller to “repeat in New York
’ City what he said in the mid
! die of the farm belt.’”
Mr. Celler said the Governor,
when serving as chairman of
former President Eisenhower’s
I advisory committee on Govern-
> ment organization in 1953, had
. “recommended recreation of a
t Department of Urban Affairs
, similar to that proposed by
. President Kennedy.”

Ball so Testify
For State Dept.
At Censor Quiz
Bt»r Btatf Writer
Senators Investigating char
ges that military leaders have
been “muzzled” have scheduled
their first State Department
witness for hearings this week.
The witness will be Undersec
retary of State George Ball. He
will be questioned about State
Department procedures in re
viewing speeches of defense of
ficials, military and civilian,
having foreign policy implica
Chairman Stennis of the Sen
ate Armed Services Prepared
ness Subcommittee conducting
the investigation said public
hearings will resume at 2 p.m.
Tuesday and Mr. Ball will ap
pear at a hearing Wednesday
Decker To Testify
Tuesday’s witness will be Gen.
George H. Decker, Army Chief
of Staff. Several of his speeches
last year underwent change at
the hands of censors.
The Investigation has been
pointing towards the testimony
of State Department witnesses.
More than 70 Instances have
been cited showing changes and
deletions made at the direction
of the State Department which
has the responsibility under a
long-standing directive to re
view speeches and statements
which discuss foreign policy.
Senator Thurmond, Demo
crat of South Carolina, who
brought on the investigation
with attacks on censorship,
contends that most of the
changes ordered by the State
Department water down com
ments by military leaders and
others on the menace of com
Clash Unresolved
Senator Stennis scheduled
another round of the hearings
with a clash with the Kennedy
(Administration still unresolved.
This involves whether the
Defense Department will ac
cede to Senator Thurmond’s
demand for the names of indi
vidual censors who reviewed
specific speeches. The South
Carolina Senator said he wants
the censors to testify and ex
plain why changes and dele
tions were made.
The question, involving the
doctrine of executive privilege,
remained unresolved after Sec
retary of Defense McNamara
conferred Friday with Senators
Stennis and Thurmond.
Senator Thurmond, it is un
derstood, rejected an offer by
Mr. McNamara to find out the
information desired and pre
sent it in writing to the sub
committee. The Senator in
sisted that the censors should
be subpoenaed to testify under
oath and the question on
