Brown calls special session for July 8 SACRAMENTO (UPI (-California legislators, recovering from a slam-bang sLx-month general session, will have the 4th of July weekend in which to relax before coming back for a special session that promises to be just as bruising. Gov. Edmund G. Brown granted them the holiday Wednesday and announced the special session to iron out budgetary problems would begin July 8 instead of July 1 "to avoid losing valuable time" lover the weekend, i He made it clear he blamed "a Republican minority which killed our revenue proposals'* for having to call the lawmakers back. "A majority of each house voted to support administration proposals at the regular session and should have an opportunity to meet the challenges posed by the Republican minority's blind refusal to recognize reality," Brown said. He met most of Wednesday with JO legislative leaders, including Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Un- ruh. D-Inglewood, and Sen.

President -foolc strong position West Berliners bask in glow of Kennedy's triumphal visit BERLIN (UPl) - West Berliners basked today in the giow of President Kennedy's triumphal visit and his reaffirmation of United States pledges to defend the isolated city. The President served notice on Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev that American troops are here to stay and will not retreat in the face of Communist threats. Kennedy's stand, taken in a series of speeches that ended his and Berlin, appeared to be the strongest anti-Communist position he could take and elated the 1.5 million enthusiastic West Berliners who turned out to cheer him. The emotion - charged crowds seemed to be lhanVung the United States in the person of its President for keeping Communisl-en- cu-clcd West Berlin free for the last 18 years. They waved American flags, rhjihmically chanted "Kcn-ne-dy. Ken-ne - dy" and showered the four-day tour of West Germany | President witli confetti during his tour that included two stops tile Reds' anti-refugee wall. West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt said the visit was the high point of Kennedy's German tour and the day will remain "unforgettable." .Alaj. Gen. James Polk, Berlin' .Vmerican commandant, called "a tremendous day ... the rapport between the President and the Berliners was so striking that I believe this day will never be forgotten." Load up, Chevy 11 Nova 400 6-Pa5senger Station Wagon light out Senators to concur on defense bill WASHINGTON 'UPD — The Senate appears likely to concur in all but a few details to the S47 billion defense appropriations bill passed by the House. By a 410-1 vote Wednesday, the House approved the bill which ac counts for almost half of the entire $98.8 federal budget for the fiscal year beginning Monday. Senate sources said the bill trimmed by about $1.9 billion from the President's request, was almost in line with the general views expressed by the Senate military appropriations subcom mittee. The subconmiiltee already is at work on the Senate version. But Senate action is not expected to come until after the fiscal year begins. Final passage of the bill after the start of the year is not uncommon, and Congress already has given the Defense Department authority to spend at current levels until the new budget is approved. One of the changes the Senate is likely to make in the House version is in funds for the con troversiat RS70 strike plane. TTie Senate might well act to speed work on the plane, although the House went along with Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara in all but writing off the 2,000- mile-an-hour bomber. All U.S. bomber production stopped last year, and Defense Department critics have questioned abandoning the manned bomber to rely solely on missiles. The bill's manager. Rep. George H. Mahon, D-Tex., told the House, however, that other possible supersonic bombers were under study. He said Congress probably would be asked for money next year to build one final-type manned strategic aircraft for ad dition to the bomber fleet now dominated by the obsolescent B52. The lone dissenter to House passage was Rep. Thomas B. Cur tis, R-JIo., wto said he had no real objection to the bill but cast his "no" vote to call attention to "the seriousness of deficit financing." "We haven't got the money," he said. M. Bums, D-Fresno, president pro tempore of the upper house. They did not disclose the topics of their discussion, but it was evident they studied proposals for new financing methods to augment the pared • down budget adopted shortly before the regular legislative session was adjourned Friday. "I have received urgent requests from all over this state to call this session so that it can move to meet the grave problems being created by the emergency budget," Brown said. He added that he had promised many legislative leaders to call the special session before they agreed to approve the stripped- down spending plan. /i coalition of 12 Republicans and three Democrats, including Bums, defeated a bill to accelerate the state's bank and corpora' tion tax on the last day of the session. This prompted backers to drop the remainder of the S147.3 million tax program, including the personal income withholding tax plan. After the tax reform program failed, the legislators approved the "emergency" budget of S3.14 billion. The budget originally sub mitted by Brown for the fiscal year beginning Monday totaled $3.25 billion. The governor earlier declined to say specifically whether he would renew his withholding tax propos al to the special session.

Khrushchev to arrive Friday Soviet reaction to Kennedy visit hardens MOSCOW (UPl) - Soviet reaction to President Kennedy's visit to West Berlin hardened today in advance of Premier N i kita Khrushchev's countering trip to East Berlin. Khrushchev is due in East Berlin Friday afternoon, but there was no information available as to when he planned to leave Moscow. Western observers said the premier apparently hoped to offset the massive morale boost Kennedy gave to the 1.5 million West Berliners who greeted him during his brief visit Wednesday. Khrushchev scotched rumors of his premature dexj;ture Wednesday when he spoRe to military cadets here. Surrounded by generals and admirals, he told the newly commissioned officers "resolute actions" were needed to block the way "to another world war." "As long as imperialism exists there remains the danger of imperialism unleashing a world nuclear rocket war." he said. "It is impossible not to see that aggressive forces in the Western powers headed by the imperialist circles of the United States are continuing their war preparations." The official Communist party newspaper Pravda reacted to Kennedy's Beriin visit by claiming a Bonn-Washington "atonjic axis" that "reeks of war" had emerged from Kennedy's talks with West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. "It was not for nothing that the question of the so-called multi-lateral nuclear NATO force, whose estabUshment is planned as a screen for the atomic arming of the Bundeswehr (West German armj'> «as one of the main subjects of the Kennedy-Adenauer talks." Pravda said. INVITED TO CUBA BR.AS1UA (UPD-Cuban President Osvaldo Dorticos has inveied Brazilian President Joao Goulart to visit Cuba, the Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.
