Fairbanks now is a business man with wide interests in Brit ain and Europe. Fairbanks, 53, is one of the leaders of the American colony in London. He and his wife, the former Virginia Lee Epling of Bluefield, Va., arc among the few foreigners who have entertained Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh at home. There was no immediate comment from Fairbanks on the girl's story. His office referred to all questioners to his solicitor, PhiUp English, whose representative said only there might be a statement later. The lush teenager told the court that while she was having an affair with Fairbanks — who established residence in London in 1952 — she also was sleeping with Peter (Polish Peter) Rachman, late slum property racketeer whose activities were debated in the House of Commons Monday night Says Astor Paid Rent She said the rent for the flat at which these sessions took place was paid by Lord Astor — she called him "BiU" in her testimony. Fairbanks, who holds honors from several countries, including the Legion of Honor of France and is a knight of the British Empire—which would entitle him to be called "Sir Douglas" if he were not an American—was mentioned previously by Miss Rice- Davies in the lower court hearing at which Ward was committed for trial. But at that time she merely .said she had "met" him and that it was not in connection wih film test. Ward, who introduced call girl Christine Keeler to former War .Minister John Profumo, starting the affair that forced his resignation and nearly brought down the government, is charged with living off the earnings of prosi- tutes and trying to entice young girls into prostitution. Before Miss Rice-Davies look the stand, questioning of another witness brought out the name "Mariella"—believed the hostess of a bizarre party in which a prominent Briton appeared dressed only in a mask and apron. Witness Breaks Down The witness, a pretty Austrian girl identified only as Miss R. broke down and was led weep- mg from the courtroom. Ward's defense counsel, James Burge, protested so vehemently against the line of questioning that brought up the name that the judge ruled the question could not be pursued. Prosecutor Men-yn Griffith- Jones got Miss R. to admit that she had been intimate with Ward at his cottage on the estate of Lord Astor outside London. Then he said: "I want to ask you about another person called Mariella." It was at this point that Miss (Continued on Page 2) morning to support Kennedy's plan to turn the work rules dispute over to the Interstate Commerce Commission <ICC). A spokesman said in response to questions, however, that the action did not have any bearing on management's decision to put the work rule changes info effect at midnight Monday. The rail unions have threatened a nationwide strike if this occurs. In their appeal, the congressional leaders indicated they expected the carriers to postpone imposition of the work rales, which eventually would cost 55,000 workers their jobs. "I assume they will continue the status quo while Congress is acting," Speaker John W. McCormack told newsmen after a breakfast meetmg with Kennedy. Democratic House Leader Carl Albert, Okla., backed McCormack's view. Both said they were doubtful that Congress could pass legislation to put the Ken- needy plan into effect before the (Continued on Page 4) can provide "badly needed services" to the people of California "on a sound fiscal basis and in the face of a continuing high growth rate." Besides the bank and corporation bill. Brown signed bills to accelerate collection of the msurance gross premium tax and to transfer $500,000 a year from the surplus line brokers ta.x to the slate's general fund. Among them, the four measures will boost state income by $105 million during the current fiscal year. Brown said he would sign another revenue measure, to eliminate the installment privilege on personal income taxes, as soon as it reaches his desk. The Senate's weeklong stalemate over" the administration's augmented budget was broken Monday in a series of dramatic events. By a 34-6 vote, the upper chamber adopted an $84.9-milIion budget augmentation measure and sent it to the .Assembly. But the lowe.- chamber wasn't necessarily going to rubber stamp the bill. Assemblyman Robert W. Crown, D-Alameda, chairman of Ways and Means, said his committee would hammer out its own version. The lower chamber version now stands at the $114 million submitted by Bro\™, and probab- by will be trimmed somewhat. Ways and Means set an afternoon session to consider the budget augmentation, which would be added to a spending program totaling $3.14 billion approved by the regular session. It was probable that the Assem bly version of the budget will reach the floor this aftemon, be approved and force the budget measure into a Senate-Assembly conference committee to work out differences. Assembly Republicans apparent(Continued on Page 5) The major nuclear powers were expected to initial the agreement Wednesday, just as East European Communist leaders convene for a summit conference designed to close Red ranks aginst Communist china. The East-West talks that diplomatic sources said might prove to be one of the major disarmament breakthroughs in the post war period ended at 6:30 a.m. PDT. The negotiators plunged immediately into additonal discussions on other topics that could thaw the cold war. Presidential trouble-shooter W.

President Kennedy was reported to have asked Harriman to sound out the Soviets on Premier Nikita Khrushchev's proposal that East and West exchange observers who would report from strategic areas to cut the risk of surprise attack. Gromyko also was expected to sound out privately the private views of the two key Western Allies on Khrushchev's call for talks that could lead to a full treaty of non-aggression between the Western Alliance and the Communist Warsaw Pact nations. Diplomatic sources said t h e possibility of a Berlin settlement Major snag to the proposed agreement on a non-aggression pact between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Warsaw Pact nations was the Western fear that it might mean recognition of Communist East Germany. Such recognition, some Western diplomats feared, might imperil Allied rights in West Berlin. As the negotiators wound up the nuclear talks, sources in Washington said Secretary of State Dean Rusk plans to fly to Moscow with a bipartisan delegation of congressional leaders to initial the agreements. A communique issued after the negotiations here Monday said the three men had achieved "further progress." Demonstrations suspended Negroes pledge end to sfrife in Cambridge School aid bill before Assembly SACRAMENTO (UPI) -A $100 million school aid bill was in the hands of the Assembly today for a decision on whether school fi nancing reforms should be added. The Senate passed the bill- minus reforms — on a 36-3 vote Monday. The bill by Sen. Joseph A. Rattigan, D-Santa Rosa, would raise state money for local schools from S800 to $900 million over two years. Of the extra SlOO million, S40 million would be appropriated during the current fiscal year and $60 million in fiscal 1964-65. Aside from minor reforms such as in transportation financing, the money would be handed out to local districts largely under present formulas based on average daily school attendance. Omitted from the bill were three major proposed reforms: A coun tywide tax, formulas based on class size and teacher salary, and greater consideration of federal aid in computing state aid. Seeks name change LOS ANGELES (UPI) - The! Board of Supervisors today voted to change the name of County Hospital to Los Angeles County Medical Center. The.-facility "is more than simply a general hospital," said Supervisor Ernest Debs. "It trains more doctors than any place in the country." The board's action was unanimous. Egyptians place their military might on display By United Press Intrenational Negro leaders from strife-torn Cambridge, Md., pledged today to halt racial demonstrations indefinitely under a five-point agreement worked ouc between city officials and -Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy. Kennedy, in Washington, announced settlement of the sometimes violent integration dispute in the Eastern Shore city where National Guardsmen had been sent several times to impose martial law. The attorney general said the agreement provides for desegregation of the first four grades of school by September; a low- rent public housing project for Negroes; hiring of a Negro in the Cambridge office of Maryland's Department of Job Security; appointment of a bi-racial committee including four Negroes; and united opposition to a referendum that could change a charter amendment providing for desegregation of public facilities. In New York, police today arrested 73 demonstrators at two ' construction sites and city officials sought ways to satisfy Negro demands for a larger share of building trade jobs. Hearings are to open July 31 on charges of discriniination by contractors for city construction projects. Police arrested 58 men and women pickets on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest today when they lay down in the path of construction vehicles at the Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn. Later, 15 more demonstrators were arrested on similar charges at Rochdale Tillage, a city- financed housing project in the queens. The leader of sit-in demonstrations in (Chicago offered to resign today because he thinks there has been too much picketing and not enough negotiating in that city's civil rights campaign. "I'm sick of sit-ins and picket lines," said Sam Riley, chairman of the Chicago chapter of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). "I prefer to plan and to negotiate." Kennedy s plan to halt rail strike W.ASHINGTON (Wl) - Here is the way President Kennedy's proposed plan to avert a railroad strike would work: —On date of congressional enactment, the railroads could impose new work rules only with the Interstate Commerce Commission's approval or modification. These would become "interim rules," to be effective for two years from the date of the ICC's approval, unless the disputing parties reach agreement in the meantime through collective bargaining. —The unions would be barred from striking over these issues from the date of congressional enactment through the two-year lifetime of the interim rules. The ICC would be instructed to act on the rules change requests within 120 days of filing or as soon thereafter as possible. —.Any strike by unions or lockout by management in an effort to circumvent the interim rules would be subject to federal court injunctions to force compliance. —.Any ICC decision would be subject to court appeal. Sailor's life never like this Navy urged to count sheep, keep track with roving cattle too CAIRO (UPI) - Egypt, displaying its military might on the 11th anniversary of the coup that put President Gamal Abdel Nasser in power, today announced it has built its first submarme and will test it within 15 days. But Nasser's plans for extending the United Arab Republic appeared to be all but finished for the present. He charged in a speech Monday night that Syria, which was to have joined Egypt and Iraq in the new U.A.R. by September, "has been converted into a vast concentration camp." He said he would never federate with Syria as long as its Baathist party rulers remain in power. He did not mention Iraq, also ruled by the Baathists. Chief of Staff Gen. Ali Amer, reviewing today's parade of Soviet-equipped troops, declared that the armed forces were get- tmg "up to date heavy equipment and guided missiles." He did not say how the submarine was developed but German scientists have aided in the construction of missiles here. (In Munich, Germany, the designer of the famous World War II fighter planes. Willy Messerschmitt, confirmed Monday that he is helping Egj-pt build a supersonic fighter.) Eight new weapons unveiled during the parade. They included a two-stage guided missile, and medium and long range ground- to-air missiles reported to be the same type fired at U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers over Russia. The others were long range field rocket launchers, tank-borne long range anti-aircraft artillery, hea- ^-y amphibious tanks and MIG21 jet fighters, reported to be the latest supersonic models capable of flying t\nce the speed of sound. But the future of the enlarged U.A.R. did not look good. Nasser told a crowd of 100,000 jammed into Cairo's AI-Ghuma- rhia Square that "Arab liberty, freedom, and dignity are suffering a crisis" in Syria, where Baathist President Louai Attassi and Premier Salah Bitar crushed a revolt last week and obliquely accused Nasser's propaganda organs of fomenting it. (Reports from S >Tia today said Bitar and Attassi may have to step down because more militant Baathists oppose he attempts they have made to federate with Egypt, even though they posed conditions Nasser apparently found unacceptable and fought Nasserites within Syria.) WASHLNGTON (UPI) - If the Navy wants to keep using a 313,000-acre gunnery range in the Mojave Desert of California it had better start counting sheep. That, in effect, was" what the Navy was told Jlonday by the Senate Public Lands Subcommittee. 'It's all important," subcommittee chairman Alan Bible, D-Nev., declared in telling Defense and Interior Department officials that they had not provided enough in formation when it was discovered no one knew how many sheep were grazed in the Navy's Mojave 'B" Aerial Gunnery Range. John C. Brick, a real estate officer for the Navy, testified before the committee in support of house-passed legislation to allow the Navy to continue use of the range. Senators Perturbed But Bible. Sen. Clinton P. Anderson, D-N.M.. and Sen. Ernest Gruening. D-Alaska. became perturbed by the fact that neither Brick nor Bureau of Land Management officials testiftring on the bill knew how many sheep or cattle were being grazed within the confmes of the range. There was also a bit of confusion over how many grazing permits had been granted in the range. James F. Doyle, assistant director of the BLJI, seemed to think there was one. Brick thought it might be two. "There is no justification for this bill," Gruenmg declared. The Navy was given permission to use the desert land as a gunnery and bombing range in 1943 as a facility of the U.S. Naval Ordnance Test Station, China Lake, Calif. Doyle said the range had been closed to minmg and prospecting since 1943 but that grazing would be allowed to continue under the administration of the BLM. The committee took a 'slightly more sympathetic look at a House - passed bill to allow the continued use of some 250,000 acres in Imperial County, Calif., for the Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range. Doyle noted that C.J. Henderson, Brawley, Calif., had protested the withdrawal on the ground that he has discovered the "world's largest platinum deposit" in the Chocolate Mountains. However, Doyle said, the lands were presently considered to be "more valuable" as a gunnery range than for mineral development. The senators did not suggest the Na^y find out how many sheep might be grazing in the Chocolate Mountains. FDR, Jr. tells Congress: "Business would welcome desegregation mandate" Sentenced for robbery LOS ANGELES (UPI) - Stanley and Rosalie Parker of Bakersfield. calif., today were sentenced to five years to life imprisonment for the armed robbery of a clothing store in which two policemen were to- armed. Parker, 29, and his wife, 23, had pleaded guilty to first - degree armed robbery in connection with the Feb. 23 shotgun-robbery of a Robert Hall Clothing Store in North Hollywood. Parker disarmed officers Albert J. Gastaldo and Loren E. Harvey as they questioned his wife outside the store. WASHINGTON (UPI) — Undersecretary of Commerce Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr., said today that generally businessmen—in t h e South as well as the North- would welcome a congressional mandate to desegregate. Roosevelt told the Senate Commerce Committee that demonstrations, sit-ins and picketing were hurting business. "No one is unaware of the fact that the question has become of explosive national concern in recent months and is crying for an answer," he said. "We believe legislation is indispensable in the solution of this problem." The son of the former president trfd the committe that voluntary desegregation of public facilities has been helpful but cannot do the job. "I am satisfied that broadly applicable legislation such as this," Roosevelt said, referring to President Kennedy's public accommodations bill, "will solve the problem more nearly, cleanly, and quickly than half measures, unevenly undertaken." Just before Roosevelt began his testimony Sen. Norris Cotton. R- N.H., noted that the committe faced hearings on both the administration's civil rights bill and the rail dispute measure. He asked for an executive session to determine if both bills would be handled simultaneously or it the civil rights program would have to be derailed temporarily. The committee scheduled hearings on both measures today. .Act- mg Chairman John 0. Pastore, D-R.L, called Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz to an afternoon session on the railroad measure.
