Our hearings were recessed subject to a date convenient for the gentleman from New York [Mr. CELLER] to reappear and com- plete his testimony. Today was set as the time convenient, after agreement was reached with the gentleman from New York [Mr. CELLER]. But Mr. CEL- LER later refused to reappear and com- plete his.testimony. Mr. Speaker, our subcommittee has lost one week, of hearings in, an effort to accommodate the gentleman from New York [Mr. CELLER].

My request is for this afternoon only. Mr. POFF. I understand the gentle- man does not anticipate some time later to make the request beyond one day? Mr. FEIGHAN. No, not at all. The SPEAKER.

The Chaplain, Rev.Bernard Braskamp, offered tke.following prayer: Colossians 3: 23: And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. 0 Thou God of. infinite grace, give us a calm and courageous spirit and an in- trepid and, an indomitable faith as we daily find ourselves challenged by Thy greatness and goodness, and constrained by Thy love and care to serve Thee and our fellow men. May the least as well as the greatest, the weakest as well as the strongest have a share in rendering faithful and valu- able service to our beloved country and all mankind. Grant that our minds and hearts may never accept the verdict of those mo- ments of futility and frustration or take counsel with our moods of anxiety and fear. Inspire us to attempt great ventures in the ways of living that are noble and magnanimous and may our whole life be manifestly a glorious witness to the spirit of good will toward all the mem- bers of the human family. Hear us in the name of our blessed Lord. Amen. The Journal of the proceedings of yesterday was read and approved. MESSAGE FROM THE SENATE A message from the Senate by Mr. Arrington, one of its clerks, announced that the President pro tempore, pur- suant to 49 Stat. 425, as amended. by Public. Law 85-474, appointed the fol- lowing Members on the part of the Sen- ate to the Interparliamentary Union Conference to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, August 20 to 28, 1964: Mr. ROBERTSON, Mr. TALMADGE, Mr. THUR- MOND, Mrs. NEUBERGER, Mr. METCALF, Mr. MORTON, and Mr. TOWER. (Mr. FEIGHAN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his re- marks.) Mr. FEIGHAN. Mr. Speaker, hear- ings on pending immigration legislation were opened 1 week ago today by the Subcommittee on Immigration and Na- tionality. Our first witness was Con- gressman EMANUEL CELLER, chairman of. the House Judiciary Committee and sponsor of H.R. 7700, the major pending ,bill. We were limited to 1 hour of House for 1 minute and to revise and ex- tend his remarks.) Mr. ROGERS of Florida. Mr. Speak- er, latest reports that Venezuela has formally proposed that the nations of the hemisphere adopt strong sanctions against Cuba gives renewed opportunity for U.S. leadership within the Organiza- tion of American States. The Venezuelan proposal calls for col- lective break in diplomatic relations with the Castro regime, thus affecting Mexico, Chile, Uruguay, and Bolivia, the only countries in Latin America continuing such relations. Venezuela also wants suspension of trade between OAS mem- ber nations and Cuba, and is also press- ing for a halt to air and sea traffic to and from Cuba and Latin America. Adoption of such steps would do much to further U.S. policy of placing Castro in solitary confinement within this hem- isphere. I have long advocated strong action by the OAS in meeting the Cuban threat to this hemisphere, and have also urged that air and sea access to and from Cuba and OAS nations be closed, along with telegraph communications as well. The Venezuelan Government is to be commended for its initiative, and I cer- tainly support adoption of these meas- ures by the OAS. June 24 marks the date when votes will be taken on the Venezuelan proposal to bring the matter before the OAS con- vened in Washington. I, urge that the United States undertake ' new efforts to assure that the question be carried be- fore the full organization of American States, and that U.S. representatives will press vigorously for adoption of strong sanctions against Communist Castro. GUNS IN AIRPLANES (Mr. WYMAN asked and was given permission to address the House "for I minute and to revise and extend his re- marks.) Mr. WYMAN. Mr. Speaker, since the recent slaying of pilot and crew of a com- mercial F-27 in California recently, the problem of passenger and crew air safety is recognized more clearly as serious and urgent. I have been drafting legislation in this field for some time. Today I am introducing this. legislation, convinced that the proposals to date have not gone far enough in the public protection. My bill will prohibit the act of carry- ing firearms or explosives on board com- mercial aircraft without first declaring them. It will Apply to all except the Secret Service, the FBI, and FAA inspec- tors. It will give the carriers the right to search baggage and person at the car- rier's option, and it will punish the act 1904 Approved For Release 2005/01/05 : CIA-RDP66B00403R000100080007-4 CONGRESSIONAL RECORD - SENATE . 13843 Uri agencies, and also further our objec- tiv , our worldwide objectives. fir.
