(UPI) -- The 17 participating nations decided today to resume disarmament negotiations at Geneva next Jan. 21. The Geneva arms talks first went into session on March 14, 1962, and have been carried on sporadically since. Originally scheduled as an 18-natipn conference, with six countries participating from each of the Communist, Western and non-committed groups, the negotiations were boycotted by France from the start. The General Assembly last Friday voted unanimously for a 46-nation small-power resolution calling for quick resumption of the Geneva parley. Grudging Russian acceptance PHILA.

The Soviet Union backed down on its demand that joint principles of disarmament it agreed to with the United States in 1961 be deleted in a directive to the Geneva negotiators. But it won removal of a reference to changes in posi- tion that brought a narrowing of disarmament differences. And a directive to the conferees to concentrate on measures to prevent surprise attack and steps to prevent further spreading to nuclear weapons was changed to a more general reference to measures to reduce international tension.

Chrysler Corp., officials in Detroit refused to confirm the report, saying only that a decision was expected to be announced within the next month.

Rear Adm. George Burley, USN, the White House physician, went to the emergency room where the President and Connally had been taken. The President was in Texas on a two-day visit, one of whose purposes was to buck up Democratic presidential strength. Both wives waited outside the emergency room of the hospital. Anxious members of the White House staff assembled. The President had landed only a short time before at Dallas' Love Field and was driving to the Trade Mart to deliver a luncheon speech. The streets were lined by crowds, the biggest turnout of the Texas tour. Both the body and glass bubble of the car are proof against most gunfire, but the top was down so the President could wave to the crowds. It was also difficult to determine immediately whether the First Lady and Mrs. Connally were injured. Both women were in the car Both women were crouched down over the inert forms of their husbands as the big car raced toward the hospital. Mrs. Kennedy was on her knees on the floor of the rear seat with her head toward the President Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was in a car behind the President's. There was no immediate sign that he was hurt In fact, there was no evidence at all at what might have happened to Johnson since only the President's car and its Secret Service follow-up car went to the hospital. A screaming motorcycle escort led the cars there.

The President, his limp body cradled in the arms of his wife, was rushed to Parkland Hospital. The governor also was taken to Parkland.

Vice President Lyndon Johnson Secret Service departure from the scene of the shooting that members of the Kennedy staff were from 15 minutes to a half hour behind in reaching the hospital. It was impossible under the tension at the hospital to assemble a clearcut story of the incident because the burst of gunfire took only seconds. Some of the Secret Service agents thought the gunfire was from an automatic w e a p fired to the right rear of the Chief Executive's car, probably from the grassy knoll to which motorcycle policemen directed their attention as they raced up the slope UPI White House Reporter Merriman Smith was in a radio-telephone "pool" car about eight carlengths behind the President He and three other colleagues along with Kilduff raced to the hospital behind the President's car and arrived at the emergency entrance before litters were brought up to remove the President and the governor from their car When the President was taken into the emergency room, a call was sent out immediately for some of the top surgical specialists in Dallas. A call also was sent for a Roman Catholic priest. Congressman Jim Wright of Fort Worth said both Kennedy and Connally were seriously wounded but were alive. Blood was splattered over the limousine , which had b e e flown in specially to carry the President in a welcoming parade. The driver was Secret Service man Bill Greer. A second priest was escorted in a few moments later. At the height of the emergency room drama, a weeping Negro woman bearing a small bloody child rushed into the hospital, where a nurse and an intern went quickly to her side. Mrs Kennedy apparently was safe, Mrs. Connally also was safe, it appeared. Both women were stunned. Kennedy, according to a member of his staff, was still alive at 12:55 p.m. CST (1:55 EST).
