Kennedy trying to rally western allies By STEWART HENSLEY United Press International DUBLIN (UPI) — President Kennedy's brief pilgrimage to relive the pastoral past of his Irish forebears provides a sharp contrast to the previous four days spent in Germany. From the grim, grey Berlin wall to the green fields of Erin in one day is quite a jump—in both mood and motive. The President's bell - ringing four-day visit to West Germany, climaxed Wednesday by an emotion-packed tour of Berlin, may or may not have a lasting effect on the course of Allied politics and policies in Europe. Diplomatic opinion is divided on this point. The President's personal charm undoubtedly sparked much of the acclaim in Bonn. Cologne, Frankfurt and Berlin. In divided Berlin, where he reaffirmed in dramatic language the pledge to defend the free Western sector, the acclaim at times approached adoration. However, Kennedy did not con sider himself engaged in a popularity contest with French President Charles de Gaulle or any other European leader. Strategy Emerges The President's strategj- emerged more clearly each day in Germany and undoubtedly will be developed further when he visits Italy next week—after a somewhat awkward day in England with sorely beset Prime Minister Harold JIacmillan. He seemed to bo carrj'ing on two simultaneous campaigns which he obviously believes may mesh to lessen the chance of nuclear disaster: —To rally nervous Allies against attempts by De Gaulle and some others to downgrade the Atlantic alliance, and eliminate suspicions that the United States may abandon West Europe when the chips are down. —To convince West European leaders that the new Kennedy "strategy of peace"—seeking accommodations with the Kremlin- does not mean that Washington will make any deals with Russia at the expense of its Allies. Would Be Worthwhile If he really won the firm and unyielding support of the German leaders and people for his strategy, the trip will have been worthwhile and he will have broken the back of any Franco- German axis—the only combination capable of providing the backbone for a European "third force." Kennedy and German leaders already agree on nuclear defense cooperation, including creation of a NATO multilateral nuclear force of Polaris-bearing ships manned by mi.\ed nationality crews. But they decided a final Allied decision must await the end of political uncertainties in Britain and Italy. A multilateral nuclear force I Paroled coed succumbs to temptation N.\SHVILLE, Tenn. (UPI) An unfortunate thing happened to prison "coed" Sarah Jeannette Johns on her way to the University of Tennessee. She succumbed to the "sudden temptations of a free, modem society" and kept late hours shortly after she was paroled to attend the university, state Corrections Director Harry Avery said Wednesday. "I was scared of life," Miss Johns told Uie Pardons and Paroles Board, wiiich revoked her parole at a hearing Wednesday. She said she went to a movie Monday night, "got scared," and spent the rest of the night and early morning drinking in local taverns. Officers were waiting for her When she returned home at 2 a.m., four hours beyond her parole curfew. "Her conduct clearly indicates she should not be further paroled at present," said Avery. The 23-year-oId woman, who had served four years of a 10-year sentence for armed robbery, was released from prison last week to study criminal psychology at the university. She had earned 12 college credits through correspon- • dence courses. "She will be privileged to carry on her education through correspondence courses," said Avery. State lets contract for new freeway SACRAMENTO (UPI) - A $1. 114,720-contract for widening the Santa Ana Freeway in Orange County was awarded Tuesday to Hooker Co., Chatsworth, by the Department of Public Works. The contract calls for widening to sLx lanes a 5.R mile stretch of the freeway and installing median barriers between Laguna Canyon Koad (State Highway Route 185) and Browning .Ave. near Tustin. Denies report of Pope's visit ROME (UPI) — VaUcan sources know nothing about a published report Pope Paul VI may make a trip to the United States, the Italian news agency Ansa said Tuesday. "Regarding stories from Washington reporting Paul VI might take a trip to the United States ne.\t J'ear, V^can soioxres say they biow nothing about it," Ansa said. Ansa did not say who published the original report.

Kennedy himself acknowledges that Europe at present is beset by too many political uncertainties to make it possible to expect decisions on many major issues. But he hopes he has built a backfire against trends wliich could wreck the Western alliance and play into the hands of the Russians. Russ have no new offer MOSCOW (UPD-Russia indicated today that agreement at the Moscow nuclear-test talks will depend entirely on what the United States and Britain propose. The Communist organ Pravda indicated the Kremlin has nothing new to offer. Pravda said also the Soviet Union ccmsiders a net of "automatic control stations" sufficient to police a ban on underground tests. The question whether Moscow has withdrawn its offer of two to three annual on-site inspections was left open. "Now it is up to the West and only the West," declared Pravda commentator, Yuri Zhukov, in discussing the negotiations scheduled to begin here in mid-July. Admiral battles for Annapolis reforms Rickover wins another round WASfflNGTON (UPI) - Vice Adm. Hyraan G. Rickover has won another victory in his battle to reform the faculty at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. But the battle is two years old, and it doesn't appear that anything sudden or sensational will happen at the 118-year-old Academy. Rickover, builder of nuclear submarines who became interested in education, attacked the Academy in mid-1961. He asked for a civilian dean and civilian professors in all subjects except naval science. Then Navy Secretary John B. Connally, who later was elected governor of Texas, fully supported him. So did Coonally's successor. Navy Secretary Fred Korth. But there is a lot of tradition involved and matters have moved slowly. The latest development was the naming of Dr. Arthur Bernard Drought of Marquette University to be "academic dean, pro tem- TREASURE HOUSE Your unused furniture or appliances will find a ready market through aassified Ads. porary" at the Academy under a one-year contract Korth said Drought's appoint ment was "one of a series of steps being taken by the Academy to strengthen and improve its educational program." Rear Adm. Charles C. Kirkpatrick, superintendent at Annapolis, described Drought as a "distin- Redlands Daily Pacts Thurs., June 27,1963 - 7 Brumis go home! guished educator," and said: "We feel that with his e.xperi- ence and background, he will materially assist and guide us to the correct decisions necessary to properly establish the permanent civilian academic dean at the Naval Academy." W.ASHINGTON (UPI) - A conspicuous and uninvited guest nearly broke up a ceremony in the attorney general's office Tuesday when Robert F. Kennedy met with eight District of Columbia school teachers.

'Shall we go on with the meeting and act as though he's not here?" the attorney general said.
