Sparse crowds watched quietly as the king and queen drove from Buckingham Palace at noon. They were outnumbered by thousands of police who stood shoulder-to-shoulder to prevent demonstrations from soaring again to the explosion point.

The royal motorcade, guarded by police in cars and on motorcycles, drove to Westminster Pier whore the party boarded a cruise boat for a trip of the "City of London," the financial district where the king and queen were to receive new honors. But as the royal couple left their car for the boat, a demonstrator made a desperate attempt to reach them. Mrs. Tony Ambatielos, wife of an imprisoned Greek union lead er, broke through the barricade of police, darted past officers v.ho tried to tackle her and almost made good her attempt before a burly plainclothesman brought her to earth.

Old Bailey Judge Archie Marshall granted a postponement of the trial's opening from July 15 to July 22 after the defense counsel complained that the prosecution seemed to be in a hurry to dispose of the case. Ward, 50 a society osteopath and part-time artist, is charged with seven vice counts, including procuring, counseling abortions and living off the immoral earnings of prostitutes. He has pleaded innocent to all charges, and has been free on bail for a week awaiting trial. pearances touched off a major disturbance last April by leading band of demonstrators in a rush at Queen Frederika, who was here on a visit. The demonstrators smashed through the queen's personal bodyguard and sent them running before police subdued them. She also was a leader of demonstrations Tuesday. This time Mrs. Ambatielos carried a small white placard protesting her husband's 16-year imprisonment. The launch, trailed by an escort of other boats, brought the party up to the famous Tower of London, where deposed kings and queens have whiled away their time. The king and queen then took a car to Guildhall for a luncheon. Hundreds of police officials were stationed inside and outside the building, with plainclothesmen on duty at all entrances. Although Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were not attending. Princess Marina met the Greek royal couple with Sir Ralph Perring, lord mayor of London. Hundreds of city office workers gathered along the route to Guildhall, pressing against the massive police cordon. A few isolated boos could be heard. Authorities took the added precaution of blocking the entrance of the streets leading to the Guildhall. Tuesday's demonstrations on the arrival of the royal couple almost reached the explosion point. Police tightened their security measures. Nation braces itself for rail strike CHICAGO (UPI) - The nation braced itself today for a crippling rail strike that could tie up untold industries and businesses and clog the highways with thousands of displaced passengers. A strike would hit freight movement of livestock, grain and other perishables the hardest. It would force commuters—of which there are hundreds of thousands in New York and Chicago alone— to find other ways to go to work. And it surely would hit every consumer in the pocket with higher prices. Commerce Secretary Luther Hodges said a strike would do irreparable damage to the nation's economy. "It would slow it down appreciably," Hodges said Tuesday at a news conference, and the economy would "probably never make it up again." Hoffa Pledges Support James R. Hoffa, president of the Teamsters Union, whose truck drivers would have to take up much of the slack in case of a rail shutdown, pledged his union's support of a strike. But Hoffa said no sti-ike is good for anyone at any time. Postmaster General J. Edward Day said the post office would suspend deliverj- of second, third and fourth class mail beyond 150 miles if a railroad strike occurs. He said first class mail and air mail would continue to be dispatched. A meat packing official. Edward A. Cudahy llf, president of the Cudahy Packing Co., said a nation-wide rail strike would cause chaos in the livestock and meat packing industry. Cudahy said there would not be enough alternate shipping facilities to carry meat to customers, and packers would have to cut back their purchases of live animals to match their ability to distribute meat. This, he said, would strike a severe blow at the livestock producer who is just rccovermg from a winter of drastically lower prices. Would Suffer Most Homer R. Davison, president of the American Meat Institute, said the West, East and South would suffer the- most serious shortage of meat in case o£ a prolonged rail strike. Davison said that although trucks have become an important vehicle in hauling livestock in recent years, it would be "virtually impossible" for the trucks and highways to handle the increased volume. Unions, management agree to accept new proposals WASHINGTON (LTD - President Kennedy announced late today that rail unions and management had accepted a new proposal that would prevent any railroad strike until at least July 29. The chief executive said he had named sLv members of his Labor- management Advisory Committee to investigate the dispute and report to him by July 22. The report will be transmitted "with appropriate legislative recommendations" by Kennedy to Congress. Announcing there will "be no strike" at this time, the President said the postponement of work rules changes by the railroads: would be the last requested byj the administration in the 4-year- old dispute. Kennedy said the committee would consist of two labor members, two industry representatives and Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz and Commerce Secretary Luther H. Hodges. Kennedy said George Meany, AFL-CIO president, and George •M. Harrison, head of the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks, would serve on the panel along with Joseph Block, Inland Steel executive, and Stuart Saunders of the Norfolk and Western Railway. The President said he took the course he did because of "the unique and all-important" nature of the dispute. A strike had been expected at midnight tonight. As the midnight strike deadline drew nearer Kennedy devoted virtually his entire work day to the problem \vhich could lead to a massive coast-to-coast transportation tie-up. With the exception of one brief diplomatic appointment and a 15-minule midday break for a dip in the White House pool, the President was in almost constant conference with various officials and advisers. Kennedy called congressional leaders to the White House for emergency conferences with other government leaders, a possible indication that he would ask Congress to work out a settlement If he should adopt this course, it was believed that Kennedy also would ask the railroads to hold off on putting into effect new work rules which would trigger the midnight walkout. The five unions turned down Kennedy's proposal to let Supreme C o ur t Justice Arthur Goldberg arbitrate the dispute and work out a final settlement. The railroads, which accepted the proposal, said the new rules would go into effect at midnight. The unions promptly disclosed that members had been told to carry out strike instructions on any carrier that posted notices of the new work rules. Concern mounted as the clock moved toward the midnight deadline. The government began preparations to at least ease the paralyzing effects of a nationwide rail tie-up. The Interstate Commerce Commission said it would authorize truckers, bus companies and domestic water carriers to take on extra routes and cargoes if the trains stopped running. White House press secretary Pierre Saliner said the imion and railroad management spokesmen were standing by for a possible second session with Kennedy. But a 9 a.m. PDT deadline for notifying them of another conference passed without word froni the president. Salinger said he would not comment on what the President plans to do but added: "The President is obviously doing something." House Democratic leaders who spent much of the morning at the White House were tight lipped about their talks with Kennedy. "We were brought up to date on the situation," was all Speaker John W. McCormack would say. Both McCormack and House Democratic Leader Carl Albert. Okia.. turned aside all questions as to whether there would be a presidential message to Congress. It was noted, however, that among the key figures called to the White House was Rep. Adam Claylon Powell D-N.Y.. chairman of the House Labor Committee, which would handle any legislation. The five unions involved represent about 200.000 workers who run 95 per cent of the nation's trains. The unions are the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, Brotherhood of Raih-oad Trainmen, Order of Railway Conductors and Brakemen, and the Switchmen's Union of North America. The Brotherhood of Railroad trainmen represents about one half of the workers affected by the dispute. The railroads estimate that eventually about 55,000 jobs might be elimmated through new work rules but have said the changes would be made gradually. "We are being asked to agree to a procedure which we believe could pave the avenue to future compulsory arbitration by custom or practice," the unions said. "This we cannot do as a matter of principle."

Won't fire housekeeper Unrepentant bishop defies Vatican order ABERDEEN, ScoUand (UPI)Bishop Francis Walsh, of the Roman Catholic Church, left today for an "away from it all" holiday with his housekeeper in defiance of orders from the Vatican. Bishop Walsh told reporters he would not comply with a church order to fire 42-year-old Mrs. Ruby MacKenzie. He had been given three months to do so by the Vatican, but the deadline expired Tuesday night with the 61-year-oId bishop still "unrepentant." The bishop of Aberdeen and Mrs. Mackenzie drove in separate cars today to the village of Chapeltomi, where they were expected to stay until the end of August. Mrs. Mackenzie will continue to act as the bishop's housekeeper. Mrs. Mackenzie, whose marriage to a Church of Scotland minister ended ui divorce, has been Walsh's housekeeper for three years. In a statement to be read to all churches in his diocese Sunday Bishop Walsh said that the Vatican "order to turn Mrs. MacKenzie out of my house ... is unjust and cruel." "I have come to the decision that I cannot act against my conscience and put her out," be said. SAN DIEGO (UPI)—Despite the female hue and cry to enter astronaut ranks, American women aren't ready to space travel, according to Lt. Col. John (Shorty) Powei-s, voice of Mercury Control. Powers, on leave from his public affairs job with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said Tuesday Russia's or- bitmg of a spacewoman "succeeded only in getting every woman m the States stirred up." "We haven't found a woman in the country totally qualified," the Air Force officer told a news conference. Replying to a remark that Soviet spacewoman Valentuia Ter- eshkova was not a qualified astronaut Powers said: "We flew a chimpanzee in Mercury, but that doesn't prove you don't need an astronaut." Powers wondered what Miss Tereshkova would have done if presented with the technical problems that faced Maj. Gordon Cooper during the closmg stages of his flight. "\Vhat would you get from phasing women into the space program, what would you prove?" asked Powers. He said a Negro, CathoUc or Jew could argue for an astronaut's job on a racial or religious basis as logically as a woman could on the basis of se.x.

Conservatives weren't out celebrating, either. But neither side had any plans to contest it. Under plans all but formally announced by House leaders. Rep. John Young, D-Tex., will replace Rep. Homer Thomberry, D- Tex., as a member of the pro- administration bloc that frequently has been able to prevail on the crucial committee by no better than 8 to 7. President Kennedy Tuesday nominated Thomberry as a federal judge for the Western Dis trict of Texas. In so doing, he rewarded Thomberry for past support, but at the same time created a further problem for himself in the closely divided rules group. The rules committee normally decides whether bills recommended by other committees are routed on to the House for a vote. Its yes or no can mean life or death for controversial bills. Speaker John W. McCormack. D-Mass., let it be known he had picked another Texan to fill Thornberry's crucial rules seat, and word was passed among members that Young was the man. In selecting Young, McCormack obviously acted in the belief Young could be counted on hi a puich to support the leadership even in the face of adverse local interest. Thomberry, though he sometimes voted agauist the administration both in the committee and on the House floor, was a close friend of the late Speaker Sam Raybura and became a trusted leadership lieutenant in the crucial rules spot. Some liberals pointed to Young's mi-xed record of administration support heretofore and wondered whether McCormack had made the right choice. Conservatives, who saw their long domination of the^committee shattered when the group in 1961 was enlarged from 12 members to 15, figured that McCormack knew what he was domg. Their assumption was that he had exacted a pledge of support from Young. Top-level Russians in parley with Chinese By HENRY SHAPIRO United Press International MOSCOW (UPD—Top-level rep resentatives of Russia and Red China met in two negotiating sessions today m a resumed effort to prevent a further widening of the breach in the international Communist movement With Soviet Premier Nifcita S. Khrushchev back in Moscow for the first time suice the talks began, the Peking and Moscow delegations ended a one-day recess and conferred in morning and afternoon sessions. Authoritative Communist sources said the high negotiators assembled anew in an afternoon session at the Central Committee headquarters and it was understood that for the first time they discussed substantive issues in the bitter Moscow-Pekuig dispute. At the same time a group of lesser-ranking technical e.xperts met at the House of Receptions behind yellow walls in the Lenin Hills section of the capital. The negotiators started out with a three-hour momuig session after Tuesday's mutually agreed-upon recess that permitted the CSiinese Communist delegates to get new instructions from Peking. In the meantime Khrushchev returned to Moscow from the Ukraine, where he had conferred with former NATO Secre tary General Paul-Henry Spaak. He met today with visiting Hungarian Premier Janos Kadar. It was believed Khrushchev may be using the occasion of Kadar's Moscow visit as a further move to solidify support among Eastern European Communist nations for Moscow's Chinese blast Soviet Union TOKYO (UPI) — Communist China today accused the Soviet Union of trying to infringe upon its sovereignty. In a statement that pushed the two Communist giants closer to a complete break, the Chuiese said the Russians have created a grave situation by extending ideological differences to state relations. The statement also accused the Russians of whipping up an anti China campaign "all over the Soviet Union" and said this "series of measures to worsen Sino-Soviet relations" has jeopardized current ideological talks in Moscow. The statement was issued by the Central Committee of the Chmese Communist party. It was broadcast by the New China news agency, monitored in Tokyo. Can't pass Senate Brown's withholding tax plan is dead stand m the controversy with Peking. The talks resumed today under the cloud of new Pekhig charges that the Soviet Union was poisoning Soviet-Chinese relations. Non-Communist circles gained the impression the (Chinese Com- mum'sts would like to provoke a formal breakdown in the talks. But the Russians apparently are not willing to halt the talks unless the Chinese walk out of the negotiations. It was reliably reported, meanwhile, that CJhinese students in Moscow were continuing to distribute the abusive, anti-Soviet letter of June 14 published by the Chinese Communist party. The letter bluntly outlined Red China's stand in the ideological dispute with Moscow. The Chinese Embassy halted distribution of the document to correspondents and diplomats following Soviet protests but students were reported even handing out copies on suburban trains as well as at the university. Three dead in three car crash near Indio SACRAMENTO (UPI) - Gov. Edmund G. Brown's controversial plan to put the personal income tax system on a "pay-as-you-go' basis apparently died today in a closed door Senate meeting. Sen. Hugh M. Bums, Democratic president pro tem of the upper house, told newsmen after the private Senate meetmg that "sentiment was not favorable" to the withholding tax plan. Sen. John F. McCarthy, of San Rafael, Republican floor leader, went even further than Bums and said that "it was conclusively shown that withholding will not pass." Both Burns and McCarthy agreed that the principal controversy would be over passage of the governor's bill to accelerate payments of the bank and corporation ta.x. One feature of the bill would elimkate installment payments on the tax during the year in which it is due. The second feature would put the banks and corporations on a "pay-as-you-go" basis. Both Burns and McCarthy agreed that the first feature met general acceptance in the Senate. But the second feature, they said, "was a matter of controversy." McCarthy indicated that he might fight passage of the governor's proposed budget augmentations if the second feature won senate approval. "There may be no budget," he said. Before the senators filed mto the private meetmg. Sen. Virgil 0'- SulIiVan, D-Williams, introduced the bank and corporation bill and said that he had the 21 votes needed for passage. INDIO (UPI) — kt least three persons died today in a three-car accident in a construction zone on 1>.S. 60-70, sLx miles east of here, the coroner reported. The California Highway Patrol said at noon it was investigating I the report a fourth person also died in one vehicle upon which another had crashed. However, the coroner confirmed the deaths of three. Tentatively, they were identified as Clifford Crabtree, about 22 and his wife, Patricia, 25 believed of either Buena Park or Anaheim, Calif., and Blanche Ellen Kazda, 51, An- aheun. The coroner said they were ui a vehicle which departed Blythe, Calif., this morning en route to Thornton. Calif. Officers said traffic had been stopped in the construction zone to allow earth movers to cross the road. The air brakes on a crane truck went out and it struck an earth mover and then smashed into a sports car that had been stopped. "The truck pushed the car off the road and both vehicles plunged into a 15-foot ditch, with the truck landing on top of the car. The earth mover struck a flag man after it was hit by the truck, the Highway Patrol said. Fight against multiple digits not dead SAN FRANCISCO (UPD- The current hearing before the Public Utilities Commission on digit dail- mg is "not a case of locking the bam after the horse is stolen." According to hearing officer William L. Dunlop. He said Tuesday that while it is tme that Pacific Telephone & Telegraph is already 48 per cent converted to the all-number system, "the commission can eliminate past changes—if the record of this hearing indicates that we | customers really favor the change should do so." Tuesday's sole witness was N.W. Calderwood, PT&T traffic engineer, who was cross examined by attorney Melvin Belli. Most of the arguing, however, came between Belli and attorney Francis N. Marchall of the telephone company. Belli three times offered to withdraw his suit. He said he would do it if "the But Marshall said "the company does not siibmit its operational decisions to popularity polls." "What you're saying is 'the public be damned,'" Belli suggested. Belli's second offer was to drop the suit should all-number dialing prove more accurate. Thhrd, he offered to drop his suit against PT4T if the telejAone company would set up an impartial speed check that would show, under the supervision of an impartial observer, that all-number dialing was faster. But attorney Marshall of PT&T declared "we are not making a blanket commitment to do anything...if the Public Utilities Commission asks us we would—hut we would have to agree upon guidelines and rules..." The hearing recessed until July 29.
