Eugene Ivanov has been under "house arrest" in Moscow since June 21 while Soviet author- iiies conduct their own investigation of his role in the Profumo scandal, diplomatic sources said today. Reports from Moscow said the former London Naval attache is being held in a modem villa used for the interrogation of important prisoners. It is regarded as a halfway house bet»veen freedom and formal imprisonment. Ivanov was suspended from the Communist party a week before he was taken to the villa, the reports said, and given "leave" from the Naxy Ministry, where he had been working since his return from London in December. The sources said Ivanov is being cited as a horrible example by "old school" Soviet diplomats, who maintain that a Soviet representative abroad should have no contacts except official ones. Ivanov's questioning reportedly centers on whether he made a complete report on all his contacts, whether he told the truth in denying an affair with Christine Keelerv and 'Whether he real' ly posed as an intermediary during &e Cuban crisis, as claimed by Dr. Stephen Ward. Reports on the Profumo affair in the Soviet and satellite press have thus far been brief and re strained.

The 18-year-oId blonde, testifying in the second day of the pretrial hearing of vice charges against society osteopath Dr. Ste phen Ward, refused to change her stand in the face of cross- examination by defense attorney James Burge. \Vhen asked by Burge if she knew Astor had made a statement to police denying he had slept with her, the girl answered, "Well, he would, wouldn't he?" Laughter rocked the crowded courtroom. Mandy testified Friday that she had sex relations with wealtliy and influential Lord Astor. Today's proceedings were further enlivened by the appearance of a "Miss X," wto was allowed by Magistrate Leo Gradvvell to omit making her name public. "Miss X" related a meeting with Ward in which she allegedly viewed a "see-through" mirror at his apartment. Miss X is listed as the "young !ad.v- of utmost. respectability" whom Ward allegedly tried to lure into prostitution. Mandy testified that she had tried to commit suicide in November over the question of money. This was after the death of Peter Archman, a wealthy friend of Ward who died recently. Mandy appeared unflustered on the stand, as she had Friday when she and Christine Keeler, 21, testified that they had lived for months with Ward. Ward is accused of eight vice counts, including arranging abortions and living off the proceeds of prostitution. Mandy and Chrisinc, formerly roommates, stunned the courtroom Friday with lurid testimony about their affairs with a war minister, a Soviet diploma and the influential Lord Astor.

Legion condemns campus communist speecA policy SAN BERNARDINO (UPI) -A resolution condemning a new policy of University of California Board of Regents permitting Communists to speak on campus was e.vpected to be placed before del egates today at the 45th annual state American Legion convention. The regents* policy was sharply criticized Friday night in an unscheduled speech by Malcolm M. Champlin. Montdair, Calif., who warned 'You 'll hear more of this later in the conventiw." Resolutions and business matters were scheduled for today's session. Attending the convention at the Orange Show Grounds are some 30,000 California Legionnaires. Last week in Los Angeles the regents approved a policy that would, under certain conditions, allow any speaker on any of the nine campuses. University President Dr. Clark Kerr specified that when Communists do speak, there must be a faculty member of tenure as chairman, and the speaker must be open to questions from the floor. Also, the individual chancellor has the option of asking a second speaker to present an opposing vie^vpoint. (3iamplin said in his blast that the national policy of the Legion rejected the idea that the Communist side be stated on campus by "truly objective persons." He said the argument might be used to argue for slavery or witchcraft Lt. Gov. Glenn Anderson, speaking to the convention Friday, attacked what he called a minority in the legislature which succeeded in "deliberately blocking the entire program" for the state. He urged support for legislation in the special session July 8 to meet expenses for schools and other programs not provided for in the austerity budget passed at the end of the regular session. NEWCASTLE, Ind. (UPD-Sen. Barry Goldwater, ridmg the crest of a smashing Young Republican accolade, Friday night told a GOP rally to fight big city Democratic machiilM and;"chase the rascals" out of office. "Big city machines supported by the lords of vice and crime cooperating with the liberals" stole the 1950 presidential election from Richard ^L Nixon, Goldwater told several thousand cheering Republicans. "NLxon really won the election but it was stolen from him," the Arizona Republican said. The audience chanted "we v.'ant Barry for President" when Goldwater appeared at the rally. Goldwater banners fluttered from the fieldhouse where he spoke and lined the downtown streets he travelled. Goldwater, often mentioned as a possible 1964 GOP presidential candidate, told a news conference he was adopting a "wait and see" policy toward the nomination. He said Republicans have an "excellent chance" to defeat President Kennedy next year. Public opinion polls would not influence his decision to seek the GOP nomination, he said. "If I decide to run for President, I'll take the Democrats on regardless of popularity polls,' he said. Newsmen asked Goldwater whether he thought there was another conservative of sufficient stature to beat Kennedy in 1964. After thinking a minute, he mentioned Sen. Thruston Morton, R- Ky., and Rep. Gerald Ford, R- Mich. Anfi-Communists blast wall in defiance of Russ Kennedy visits sister's grave in England By MERRIMAN SMITH UPI White HouH Reporter WADDINGTON, RAF StaUon. England (UPI)— President Kennedy flew here from Ireland today to pay an unexpected visit to his elder sister Kathleen's grave before opening weekend talks with Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. The President's big Boeing 707 jet landed at this Lincolnshire bomber base at 3:22 p.m. (10:22 a.m. EDT) after a 395 mile flight from Shannon, Ireland. Kennedy took off immediately by helicopter for the grave, which is located some 40 miles from Waddington in the village church yard at Edensor, on the Chats worth estate. The unscheduled visit to the grave came after another day of triumph in Ireland, where the President wound up a three-day visit with the strains of "come back to Erin" ringing in his ears and a promise to return some day in the future. With the President in the helicopter from Waddington were his two sisters, Mrs. Jean Smith and Mrs. Eunice Shriver. Also along was Mrs. K. L. Billings, Wend of the President from New York. As Lady Hartington, the President's late sister Kathleen was killed on May 3, 1948, when chartered airplane in which she was riding crashed at Privus, France. Her husband, the Marquis of Hartington and eldest son and heir to the 10th Duke of Devonshire, was killed in action France in 1944. Kennedy's trip to Kathleen grave was strictly a private affair. He wanted no advance notice and the few White House correspondent.^ traveling on the plane to Waddington with him and in an accompanying press plane were not taken along to Edensor. The President was returning to Waddington by helicopter after paying his respects. Then he. was continuing bis flight to Gatwick Aiiport where MacmiUan was waitmg to greet him. Three thousand persons — the third rapturous crowd to cheer the President as he toured west- em Ireland today—cried, "Come back. Jack," as his U.S. military Boeing jetliner left Shannon Airport at 2:28 p.m. (9:28 a.m. EDT) and headed east for England. Emotion gripped the airport as Kennedy left. When he walked toward his plane, the crowds yelled, "Goodbye, Jack. God speed you." You .are great people," Ken (Continued on Page 5) Girt 14, slain in youth gang shooting New Young GOP chief supports Goldwater BERLIN (UPI) — Anti-Communists rocked Berlin's Red-built wall wiQi explosives today in an apparent gesture of defiance against Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. Khrushchev arrived in Communist East Berlin Friday and was expected to hold an Eastern bloc summit leaders meeting there early next week. The explosion blew a hole about two feet by seven feet through the six-feet-high wall at a point about 250 yards from the Checkpoint Charlie crossing point between West and East Berlin and only a half mile from the Soviet Embassy. It was doubtful whether Khrushchev heard the explosion, however. He was visiting a machine tool factory in East Berlin at the time. This was the 17th explosion at the wall since it was built Aug. 13, 1961. This latest blow at Communist prestige followed a distinctly cool reception given to Khrushchev when he arrived in East Berlin Friday. SAN FRANaSCO (UPI) — The National Young Republicans today had a chairman who supports Barry (joldwater for president, agrees with the objective of the Liberty Amendment to abolish the federal income tax, and believes that the United States should pull out of the United Nations.

(Buzz) Lukens, 32, Washington, D.C., Friday edged another conservative, Charles McDevitt. 31 Boise, Idaho, after a wild three-hour convention battle that ended with a 318-305 vote for the winner on the second ballot. McDevitt lacked only two ballots of \vinning a majority on the first ballot, but the tide turned when Robert Gaston of Los Angeles, the head of the California delegation, withdrew as a candidate himself and tossed his votes to Lukens.

Khrushchev says Kennedy right on Russ power MOSCOW (UPI) - Premier Nikita Khrushchev told the Communist Central Committee last week President Kennedy was quite right in believing that growing Communist strength has altered the world situation, it was reported today. The text of Khrushchev's speech to the committee a week ago Friday was published belatedly—and perhaps with deleUons —in the Communist newspaper Pravda and the government or gan Izvestia. "Kennedy correctly concluded (in a speech June 10) that it is necessary to reassess values, to take into consideration the power of socialism, to change his relations with the Soviet Union, Khrushchev said. This of course does not mean . that a new era in relations between the Soviet Union and the United States has dawned . but it is very remarkable that the President of the United States, the leader of the imperi alist camp, talks about our strength. [ch words cannot be ins{Mr- rii|rW*s aBies." Eigitt drown, car plunges into flooded river California's Little Profumo case probed SACRAMENTO (UPD -California's "Little Profumo" case in which lobbyists allegedly supplied call girls for legislators was being looked into on several fronts today. The chairman of one legislative committee called for an investiga tion of reports in a copyrighted news story in the San Francisco Examiner that eight girls had been brought to Sacramento to serve as dinner—and after-dinner —companions for a group of lawmakers. It was understood the attorney general's oi f i c e was also interested in the case. But Sacramento Police Chief James V. Hides said "it looks like a fabrication to me. Someone was trying to drum up a story." Hicks said his vice squad made two or three arrests for suspected prostitution in a hotel near the capitol during the session, but said there was no connection between the women and lobbyists or legis lators. ATHENS, Ga. (UPI) - A car veered out of control as it approached a bridge in a rainstorm Friday and plunged into the flooded Oconee River where 8 of its 10 occupants drowned. Passing mortorists jumped into the river and saved the driver of the car, Mrs. Montine Bamett, 50, and her grandson, Jerry Greene, 10. The rescuers talked to the other persons in the car but the swift current swept the vehicle away before tliey could be saved. The Bametts had taken their seven grandchildren and a babysitter along with them on a grocery-shopping trip to Athens from the small community of Nicholson, 12 miles away. Mrs. Barnett. who sur\'ived with one of the children, later could not give a clear account of why the car missed the bridge. She thought the accelerator may have jammed. She thought there also was a possibility one of the car's wheels carne off. .\o one in the car could swim and Barnett, 62, a justice of the peace and homespun columnist for several newspapers, was an invalid. Barnett drowned along with Wanda. 9; Kathy. 7; Penny, 4: and Charles, 1; aii children of his daughter, Mrs. Lautrclle Epps. 31; Deborah. 9: and Dale, 5. children of another daughter, Jlrs.
