VOL. 88 NO. 133 TUCSON, ARIZONA, FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 3, I960 * 10 C6NTS-40 PAGES No Unanimity Seen As U2 Probe Ends WASHINGTON--UP)--Senators who looked into the administration's.handling of the U2 spy plane incident expressed little hope today that they can draft an unanimous report on their investigation. .With few, exceptions, bipartisanship dominated the four days of closed^door hearings which ended yesterday. But such solidarity will meet a more severe test next week when the Foreign Relations Committee meets to consider drafting a re T port in this presidential election year. Chairman J. William Tulbright (D-Ark) told newsmen yesterday "it would be unusual, if not unprecedented, if we got a unanimous report on an incident of this kind." He added: "ANY CRITICISM of past mistakes should not be interpreted as displaying disunity or lack of patriotism. Sometimes it is more unpatriotic to close our eves to mistakes." ^Before the hearing opened, many Republicans had expressed the view that an investigation of any kind would indicate a lack of national unity in the wake of verbal fireworks touched off by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. The Paris Summit conference collapsed as Khrushchev · angrily denounced American spy plant 1 flights over Soviet territory. One of the U2 planes was downed far inside Russia two weeks before the scheduled opening of the Paris conference. Testimony presented during the hearing into the ill-fated flight and events leading to the Summit breakup was heavily censored. In the portions of testimony released for publication, none of the administration officials who appeared before the committee said mistakes had been made. The final testimony yesterday came from Secretary of Defense Thomas S. Gates Jr. He disclosed that the U2 flights Over Russia had produced a wide range of vital information on Soviet missiles, submarine and atomic production and "a very definite looksee" at Soviet military posture. GATES DISMISSED as cold war propaganda the Soviet threat to fire on any allied base suspected of launching planes for spying over Russia. He said the spy flights had been the responsibility of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and no military aircraft or pilots were used. But he said the defense department gave technical advice on the U2 project and was a prime customer for information the planes brought back. Gates also said top level administration officials unanimously felt that President Eisenhower should take responsibility for the spy flights' after Khrushchev made such an issue of'them. In earlier testimony, CIA Director Allen W. Dulles had refused to tell the committee.the nature of the information the U2 was after on.the May Day flight. Secretary of State Christian A. Herter h'ad conceded to the committee ^that the May Day flight had pliyed a part in the Summit failure. But he said the decision not to suspend the U2 flights as the time for the Summit approached was a good one. Herter said Khrushchev had used the plane incident as an excuse and not as the reason for breaking up the Paris meeting.- NIKITA AGAIN LASHES BITTERLY AT EISENHOWER * * * MAYBE FOR YEARS Negotiations Door Slammed Ike Says Claim By K. C. THALER LONDON--UP!--Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev today slammed the door on negotiations with the United States for a long time to come--maybe years. Diplomatic observers believe the Soviet leader's violent attack on President Eisenhower may have destroyed the last remaining prospects for a cold war settlement in the foreseeable future. With the exception of Adolf Hitler's pre-war 1 ravings, Khrushchev's attack on the President and his top aides was considered unprecedented in modern international diplomacy. ' The Soviet leader, in his latest personal attack on Eisenhower, went even beyond his performance at -his news conference in Paris last month. Soviet affairs experts discerned more than a mere personal motive in Khrushchev's performance today. In Paris, he attempted to discredit Eisenhower and the American leadership of the Western Alliance.

Earl Rogge Jr. today filed papers opposing a request by Lambert Kau- tenburger's attorneys for a trial in another county on a bribery charge. The trial was scheduled to go before a Pima County Superior Court jury June 13. Rogge and Deputy County Atty. John L. Claborne stated in their papers that Kautenburger can obtain a fair trial before an impartial jury here. Kautenburger's motion said that he could not. The matter will come up for a hearing before Judge John F. Molloy at 9:30 a.m., Monday. Rogge has stated that Kauten- burger, chairman of the Pima County Board of Supervisors, can be tried fairly here because there was no trouble in picking a jury for the first trial in May. He cited Kautenburger's statements in April that he thought he would get a fair trial in Pima County and numerous affidavits of Pima over 65 who are not poor "enough ...

Today's decision came nearly two months after the board began hearings to decide the engineers' demand for a wage boost and the carriers' request for a pay cut.
