Must Negotiate From Strength, Says JFK By WHITNEY SHOEMAKER SEATTLE, Wash. (AP)-President Kennedy says the United States must be willing to negotiate cold war issues from a position of strength. To preach either war or surrender, he says, does a disservice to the nation. As the Western Allies, including West Germany, renew efforts to unify their stand toward the Soviet Union, Kennedy Thursday made clear these views: To encourage "appeasement or war, suicide or surrender," will divide the nation, create uncertainty among allies and inspire doubt in the Communist bloc of the West's readines to defend its rights. "The United States cannot impose its will on others," he said. "There cannot be an American solution for every world problem. The United States will never negotiate merely for the sake of negotiation, npr will it ever subject freedom to negotiation. But so long as vital interests and goals are clear, "we. have nothing to fear from negotiations at the appropriate time and nothing to gain by refusing to play a part in them." Talking out East-West disputes will succeed only if each side can find success in the result. In effect, neither side can expect total victory. Although the French and others may see weakness in taking the initiative in bargaining with Moscow, "this nation cannot abdicate to its adversariesi" the setting [ and condiions of negotiations. Kennedy, accused by some of faling to marshal public support for Western aims, set forth these warnings and objectives at the outset of i, western! our. Dressed in an academic robe, he addressed 11,000 faculty members, students and guests at the University of Washington's 100th anniversary convocation. Earlier, Kennedy received a hearty welcome from thousands on the streets of Seattle, major city in a state which went for ex- Vice President Richard M. Nixon in the 1960 election. Later, he was applauded lustily by some 3,000 Democrats who spread over four hotel ballrooms and into a restaurant across the street for a $100-a-plate dinner honoring Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, D-Wash. Magnuson has completed 25 years in Congress. The Seattle reception was larger and louder than Kennedy re- ceived as a candidate last year. It encouraged his effort to bolster Magnuson's bid for re-election in 1962. Tonight, the President appears at a testimonial for Sen. Carl Hayden, 84, D-Ariz., in Phoenix. In a switch of plans, Kennedy will forgo a Navy-Marine exercise at San Diego Saturday and attend the funeral of House Speaker Sam Rayburn at Bonham, Tex. That night he addresses a Democratic fund raising dinner in Los Angeles. Berlin Wall Major Topic For JFK-Adenauer Talks By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER I WASHINGTON (AP) - President Kennedy and West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer appeared today to be in sharp disagreement over how hard the Western powers should press a demand on the Soviet Union for removal of the Berlin wall. The issue of the Communist- built wall sealing off East Berlin from West Berlin now seems to become a major topic of discussion in the meeting between Adenauer and Kennedy. The West German chancellor is due to arrive Sunday for talks with the President on policies the Western powers should follow in any negotiations with the Soviet Union for settlement of the Berlin crisis. Meanwhile some further statement of the U.S. position on this and other Berlin policy questions may be forthcoming for this afternoon from Secretary of State Dean Rusk who scheduled a news conference. Rusk also had opportunity at the news conference to spell out current U.S. policy on assistance to the hard pressed government of South Viet Nam. There have been reports during the past several days from Saigon that Ameri- can military assistance is being substantially increased. As far as the Berlin wall is concerned, the United States, it is said, agrees that the Western powers cannot do less than insist on the wall's destruction and the restoration of freer movement of people between East and West Berlin. But in official quarters here there is no real hope that the Soviets will accept such a proposition. From the U.S. point of view it does not appear, moreover, to be an absolute necessity for an East- West agreement on the future of West Berlin.

Tougher Sledding For JFK? WASHINGTON (AP) - Indications point to tougher sledding for President Kennedy's legislative program in the House next year, now that Speaker Sam Rayburn is dead. Things may go somewhat harder for the President with the expected ascension of John McCormack of Massachusetts to the speaker's chair in January. The main reason for this is that Rayburn, a Texan and Southerner himself, had gathered immense personal prestige and a great res ervoir of respect and friendship during his long years of steward ship. Rayburn was able to cash .this coin of respect and affection when necessary to put over key pro posals of the Kennedy administra tion, drawing enough Southern conservative votes with him to make the difference. He did this at least three times during this year's session, before cancer forced him to go home to Bonham. He won the bitter fight to liberalize the bottleneck rules committee by adding three new members, arid his margin of victory was just five votes. He also put his personal prestige on the SPOT ADS Are Well Read. You Ar* Reading One Now I ine for the housing bill and rais- ng the minimum wage. It is doubtful that McCormack, a very different sort of man, can command that kind of personal wwer to influence voting on con- roversial issues that will be coming up—and certainly not among he Southerners who listened to tfr. Sam with respectful atten- ion and often went along with lim. Since the conservative-liberal split in the House is so razor close, as was shown by vote after vote in the past year when South ern Democrats teamed up with Elepublicans, this could make a vital difference to how Kennedy Dills make out in the coming year. No Shelter PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, brother of the President, has no family fallout shelter. At a news conference Thursday night, he said he plans no shelter until a federal policy is established leading toward shelters for everyone. Peoria-lmes Suffers Cut On Hand By MRS.

(AP) - Pretty, flaxen-haired Terry Jo Duperrault, who drifted for 3V4 days aboard a life raft in the Atlantic, was in critical condition today but icr physician said, "I think she will make it." A spokesman at Mercy Hospital said Terry Jo, 11, was drowsy and there had been little change in her condition since the Green Bay, Wis. child was brought in by Coast Guard helicopter Thursday. She had clung to a white cork raft, riding a sea made choppy by 16-mile an hour winds, since Sunday night. Her feet were shriveled from long exposure to the salt water and her skin was colored a deep pink from the sun. Her lips apepared to have been painted. She wore pink corduroy slacks and a white blouse with three- quarter length sleeves. Terry Jo previously had been reported lost with four others, including her parents and a brother, when a chartered ketch, the Blue Belle, went down in a sudden squall 50 miles northwest of Nassau, Bahamas. But at 11:17 a.m. Thursday a message came from a merchant ship, the Captain Theo, saying a child had been picked up from a life raft. The skipper, named CERAMIC WALLS & FLOORS FORMICA TOPS Inlaid Linoleum TILE Christian Bros.
