Telephoto) New battle for control opens m Communist world By HENRY SHAPIRO United Press International MOSCOW (UPI) — The Soviet Union and Coramunist China, tliir ideological tallu broken off in failure, today began a new stage of their cold war for con trol of the world's Cotnmunist parties. Premier Nikifa S. Khrushchev, seeking to align support for his peaceful coexistence policies, announced plans to visit Hungary. He already has scheduled a trip to Yugoslavia next month and summoned a meeting of the COMECON—East Europe's Common Market—for this week. (Communist China, whose delegates flew home Sunday at the end of 15 days of fruitless talks, today accused the Soviets of "unbridled slanders and villifica- Bandits rob bank BURBANK (UPD—Two holdup men robbed the Toluca Lake Branch of the Bank of America of $40,000 in cash and checks today, holding bank employes and 15 customers at bay with pistols while they gathered up the loot Weather Redlands Weather Today (2 p.m. reading) Highest 99, Lowest 61 Sunday Highest 100, Lowest 62 Saturday Highest 99, Lowest 63 One Year Ago Highest 99, Lowest 61 Tomorrow's Sunrise and Sunset 5:53 a.m. — 7:57 p.m. Light smog, no burning.

(Chinese party chief Mao Tze- Tung made a rare visit to Peking airport Sunday to welcome the delegation home. The Chinese press attacked the Soviets and repeated Peking's determination to pursue a militant line in seeking the spread of communism.) Today's Soviet newspapers were more restrained. They printed the communique on the the end of the talks and expressions of support for the Khrushchev thesis that nuclear war must be avoided in the campaign to convert the world to communism. (Communist diplomats in London reported that Moscow has warned Peking that the backbone of their alliance, the 30-year mutual defense treaty, may be scrapped if an excess of zeal lands China in a war.) Khrushchev's announcement, reported by the Tass news agency, did not set a date for tlie trip to Hungary, one of the most loyal supporters of the Soviet line. But the pattern of the new stage of Sino-Soviet competition was clear to diplomats here. Each of the two Communist giants would seek to line up its allies to continue the dispute. The announcement that further ideological talks were planned for "some time later" was viewed as of little practical importance. The chiefs or state of Mongolia, a Soviet ally, and every East' em European C^jmmunist nation except AJbania will meet here Wednesday in what is formally billed as a Conference of the Council of Mutual Economic Assistance or COMECON. China can be expected to hold similar talks aligning its allies. North Viet Nam, North Korea, and the Communist parties in non-Communist Asian countries. Outside of Albania, Peking's sphere of influence is limited to Asia. This Communist cold war thus will lead to consolidation of two rival centers of Conununist power, one looking toward the Ivremlin and the other to Peking for ideological leadership.

The Miss Vniverse Pageant wound up Sunday night with a coronation ball. leda Maria was escorted by Luiz Menezes, 20, a Brazilian electronics student living here. The ball climaxed a day in which Miss Universe wore her crott-n to an Arkansas fried chicken lunch and then took it off for a dip in the surf.

WASHINGTON (UPI) — The White House said today President Kennedy would ask Congress to refer the railroad rules dispute to the Interstate Commerce Commission for "prompt hearing and disposition." Legislation to be submitted to Congress at noon PDT would bar any nationwide rail strike while the ICC considered the four year-old work rules dispute. The White House announcement Soid that provisions for job security would be contained in any ICC order in the case. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Jlansfield, Mont., said the legislation would be a "single shot proposal" to give the ICC broadly expanded authority to settle the current dispute. "It is not compulsory arbitration" and is by no mean.s "seizure" of the railroads, Mansfield told newsmen at the Capitol fol- lowng a conference between Kennedy and congressional leaders of both parties. The White House announcement of the President's legislature proposal said. "The President at 3 p.m. this afternoon will send to the Congress legislation which will refer those railroad work rules issues which are still in dispute to the Interstate Commerce Conunission for prompt hearing and disposition. "Provisions for employe security would ba contained in any Interstate Commerce Commission order of approval. "Unlike compulsory arbitration, this proposal would preserve collective bargaining and give precedence to its solutions." The President previewed the plan with Democratic and Republican congressional leaders before sending it to Capitol Hill. He also briefed management and labor spokesmen in separate meetings on his proposals. The provision for hearing by the ICC and the reference to precedence for bargaining solutions indicated the administration would use the time" required for hearings to press for a voluntary agreement in tlie long dispute over what the railroads call unnecessary jobs — "feather bedding." Sen. John 0. Pastore, R-R.L, told reporters he got the impression there would have to be a moratorium, possibly two years, on the work rules dispute while the ICC conducted hearings. Tlie railroads would file with the commission applications on each proposed rules change, ha explained, then the regulatory agency would conduct hearings and make a final determination. It could still go back to collec­ tive bargainmg after that, he said. .Mansfield told reporters the ICC was selected by the President as the basis for the legislation because it would be "completely within its jurisdiction" to deal with railroad matters. But the law would be aimed at "a specific potential crisis," he emphasized. The Senate leader said the commerce committee would have to decide whether to sidetrack its current hearings on the public accommodations section of President Kennedy's civil rights program to consider the rail legislation. Before Kennedy's intentions were made known, the chief railroad spokesman said legislation providing for compulsory arbitration was the only way he knew to avoid a rail strike threatened for July 30.

Curfew now lifted in Syria, tanks withdrawn DAMASCUS, Syria (UPI) • Syrian authorities today lifted an around-the-clock curfew for the first time since Thursday's abortive revolt, but kept a close security watch around army headquarters and the Damascus radio station. The curfew was withdrawn for U hours during the day and army units and tanks were pulled out of the main centers, with the exception of the army headquar ters and the nearby station.

Seek to halt purchase of foreign jets • LONG BEACH (UPI)-City officials today asked presidential intervention to "discourage or curtail" three U.S. airlines from purchasing short-to-medium range jet transports from "government- subsidized foreign producers." In a telegram to President Kennedy, Mayor Edwin Wade and Chanber of Commerce President Dr. Orville W. Cole, said the purchase of the British - made BAG HI and the Cocorde Super-j sonic jets would be injurious to this country's economy and defense. 'Implications of the apparent trend toward purchase of commercial transports aboard are ominous," the telegram read. "If not reversed, e.\penditufes abroad could reach billions (b) of dol- ars" and have adverse effect on U.S. gold reserves. They said the purchase would mean an immediate outflow from the U.S. reserve of $85 million. American Airlines, Braniff Airways and Mohawk Airlines had placed orders for 32 British jet carriers despite production of the 'superior' Douglas Aircraft Corp.'s DC9 jet transport, the two officials said. Governors abolish resolution committee MIAMI BEACH (UPI) — Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller and other Republicans pushing for a vote on the civil rights issue were dealt a setback today by the National Governors Conference which abolished its resolution committe. The Democratic-led move had the effect of avoiding on-the-record voting on the politically-m- tense issue. The showdown vote was 33-15 in favor of an amendment offered by Democratic Gov. Grant Sawyer of Nevada. The result was reached on an almost party line basis. But Gov. Mark Hatfield, Oregon Republican, who had offered an alternative to force voting on civil rights with limit^ debate permissible, warned that thegov-^ ernors still could get info controversy in voting on committee reports. Hatfield forecast a fight over a committee report on public welfare, in which he and Gov. George Romney ot Michigan plan to file minority views. Rockefeller and other Republicans fought to keep the door open for a vote on the issue but Sawyer came up with the plan to abolish the resolutions committee and thus head off another fiasco such as that last year when Southern governors staged a filibuster on the conference. Rockefeller and Hatfield wanted a rule to permit adoption of resolutions on civil rights and other issues with a proposal containing an anti-filibuster provision. Sawyer proposed that the entire resolutions process be abolished to avoid another Southern Democratic filibuster. Both proposals were offered as a substitute for an executive committee proposals to abandon the present two-thirds rule for resolutions and to return to the rule in force before 1956 to require a unanimous vote. The unanimity rule would permit a single governor to veto any resolution. The showdown came this morning at the 55th annual conference's first business session. In any event, debate on civil rights was virtually assured. Even with removal of the resolutions process, plans were made for a civil rights panel discussion Tuesday. The civil rights issue was embroiled in presidential politics, with the names of Rockefeller and Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, potential GOP rivals, dominating talk at the conference. Rockefeller, demanding that governors show their responsibility by going on record on issues, said in an opening statement that the real threat to the governors' conference "lies in reducing these meetings to impotence and unimportance." Wilkins says Negroes won't halt demonstrations Quote of Day LONDON — Art agent Pelbam Poimd, commenting on a scheduled showing of Dr. Stephen Ward's portraits as the osteopath went on trial in Britahi's sex and security scandal: "I'm sure it will be a great success." WASHINGTON (LTD - Roy Wilkins, executive secretary of the National Association for Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), said today that Na tional indifference to the plight of the Negro would intensify and prolong the integration demonstrations sweeping the country. Negroes, he said, "are in a mood to wait no longer—at least not to v.-ait patiently and silently and inactively" for lowering of racial barriers. Nor can the Negro be persuaded not to hold demonstrations "by talk that they are hurting their cause," Wilkins said. He made the statements in testimony before the Senate Commerce Committee which is considering the administration's proposal to ban discrimination in hotels, restaurants aand other private businesses serving the public. Defending Negro street demonstrations, Wilkins asked: "How can a cause—which has been betrayed by every possible I assassination." device, beaten back in the crudest and most overt fashion and distorted in high sounding misrepresentations by the suave kinfolk of the mob—how can a cause in such condition be hurt by the crying out ot those who suffer and by their determination to alter the pattern of persecution?" Wilkins said that the "notorious defiance" of the Supreme Court school desegregation decision "capped the disillusionment of millions of Negro citizens and convinced many of them that little or no faith could be placed in the usual processes for prompt redress of demonstrable grievances." The Negro leader said Negroes had seen "that even when they have fought their way, tortuously and painfully, to the Wghest court in the nation and won there after observing all the rules and amenities, their victory can be nullified by defiance, collusion, trickery, violence, legislative and administrative shenanigans and by Dr. Ward goes on trial in Old Bailey Christine Keeler says Lord Astor paid rent Brando to undergo tests SANTA MOiVICA, Calif.

Christine's voice was nearly a whisper, and the judge interrupted: "Who paid the rent Miss Keler?" "Lord Astor," she replied. Lord Williain Waldorf Astor It was the first time Christine had testified durectly that the apartment rent was paid by Lord Astor, although she had said at Ward's pre-trial hearing that the osteopath had told her the rent once was paid with a check from the wealthy head of one of Britain's most influential fanulies. At the pre-trial bearing Mandy testified she had been intimate with Astor, who later denied it It was at the famed Cliveden estate of Lord Astor that CHu-is- tine met Profumo in the start of an affair that led to the war minister's resignation and an outcry that brought the Ojnservative government of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan close to collapse. Security questions were raised because of the disclosure that (3uristine had l )een sharing her favors at the same time with Profumo and Soviet naval at­ tache, Capt Eugene Ivanov. The Russian's name came into the trial today when the prosecutor asked Christine: "Did you have intercourse with Ivanov?" "On one occasiMi, yes."
