CAIRO, Aug. 11 #—An offer by Iraq to mediate the Suez canal crisis was reported today as Arab union leaders threat ened-to blow up Western oil and military installations in the Middle East should a shooting war start

At the same time, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser declared his great objective was not simply to take over the canal but “to arouse Arab nationalism

President Nasser’s Sunday news conference—at which he is expected to disclose whether Egypt will accept or reject an invitation to attend the 24na- tion conference on the Suez in London Aug. 16—was post- poned from noon to 4 p. m. (1! a. m. EDT). The President also is scheduled to broadcast to the nation at 6 p. m. (1 p EDT.)

[Nasser held two lengthy cabinet meetings, lasting 4% hours, and there were reports he might be deciding to attenc the London Conference, or at least offer a solution that could be acceptable to Britain and France.

‘United Press said there were widespread but unconfirmed reports that Nasser would sev er diplomatic ties with Britain and France, announce a defense pact with Russia, and declare a national emergency.

Progress was made yesterday n District transit labor nego liations

This was announced by Fed- eral Mediator James A. Ho‘den at the end of a 3'2-hour session in which prospective new trans- it chief, O. Roy Chalk, and 25 union officials for the first time began to “give and take in their contract discussions

The negotiations recessed un- til 11:15 a. m. Monday, approxi- mately 13 hours before the ex-

Although Holden did not dis any details of the “prog- ress made.” it was clear that all parties felt considerably more optimistic about getting togeth- er or, at least, reaching some working agreement before birth of the new District Trans- it System at midnight Tuesday.

Sticky hub of the negotia- tions is the question of a con- tract extension versus immedi- ate arbitration if an agreement

cannot be reached. The union wants arbitration and Chalk’ wants extension for the present time.

Chalk, New York airlines op- erator, assured reporters after the weekend recess that “there is no quéstion in my mind that 1. officially will take over the

" transit system on the Tuesday

deadline.”

“IT am here to stay,” he added. Chalk had just returned from a hurried trip to New York where he hammered out with the Chase Manhattan Bank some of the financial mechanics of his proposed $13.5 million purchase of CTC.

Chalk said the financial matters between the bank and

him are private and it wouldn't be ethical to make them public

Both union head Walter J Rierwagen, and Chalk refused to disclose what went on in the closed-door discussion. Both said they werent hiding any thing but merely wanted to ‘protect negotiations” at point

Holden said the recess called so both parties have time’ to mull over new ideas brought out in vyester- day's meeting.

The union's specific contract demands are for a 25-cent wage increase and improved vacation and holiday benefits.

District Commissioner Rob- ert E. McLaughlin last night predicted a labor settlement by the contract's expiration. He said he understands Chalk

The word had circulated in advance of the former Presi- dent's pronouncement that he would. in effect, say something like this: “I' prefer Harriman, but I would accept Stevenson.”

Never a trimmer, Mr. Tru-

man went all the way for Har-,

Mr. Truman said that against the mounting crisis in the world the Democratic conven- tion would have to name a nominee for . President who would be able to take command

Rump Groups Fail to Unseat 2 Southern States’ Delegates

By William M. Bates CHICAGO, Aug. 11 @—The Democratic National tee today threw out efforts by “rump” groups to unseat the

regular Mississippi and South Carolina delegations to the Democratic National Conven tion

The

Commit

Committee's voice vote action means the regular delegations from the two states will be on the tem- porary roll when the conven- tion opens Monday.

However, Monroe Sweetland Oregon national comitteeman said the Mississippi contest at least will be revived Monday before the Credential Commit- tee of the full convention which could reverse today’s ac- tion.

Sweetiand charged that the reguiar delegation included members who have been “no torious in their disloyalty” to the Party

One committee source imme diately voiced fear that Sweet- land’s move was an effort to re

National

open the bitter “loyalty oath” battle that almost lied to a Southerr split at the 1952 Dem ocratic convention.

Gene Conklin of the Oregon delegation, who will serve on the credentials committee, told reporters “people who come to this convention as delegates come here as members of the Democratic Party.”

“If they participate in the convention we have the right to know they will support the nominees or, at least not fight them,” Conklin said.

The regular delegations in- volved in the contests are headed by Govs. J. P. Coleman of Mississippi and George Bell Timmerman of South Carolina The contesting groups are

headed by Charles G. Hamilton of Mississippi and John H. Mc- Cray, a Negro, of South Caro lina
