VOL, 88 NO. 134 TUCSON, ARIZONA, SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 4, I960 iO CENTS--68 PAGES HORDES JAPANESE LASH OUT AGAINST IKE --AP Wir.phoU THEY DON'T LIKE IKE Leftist demonstrators parade past U. S. Embassy (background) In Tokyo today protesting President Eisenhower's planned visit to Japan. Some Drugs Okayed By FDA Were Fatal WASHINGTON-UPI-The head of the Food and Drug Administration conceded today that some medicines approved by his agency might have harmed or killed a few patients. But he said they were cleared because of the many per- ·ons they benefited. FDA Administrator George P. Larrick made the statement to United Press International after Welfare Secretary Arthur S. Flemming ordered a special investigation of charges that the agency had failed to protect the public in approving new drugs. Larrick denied a former FDA official'i charge that the agency often gave in to pressure from the drug industry when approving the safety and labeling of new medicines. But Larrick said he expected the i n v e s t i g a t i o n to result in tougher standards for FDA-approved drugs. Flemming announced the invest i g a t i o n yesterday. He s a i d h e acted as a direct result of the charges by the former FDA official, Dr. Barbara Moulton. She said "hundreds suffer daily and MISSILE BASES Convair Union Ready To Strike SAN DIEGO, Calif.-- (#)-- Convair machinists have called a strike at midnight tomorrow at Cape Canaveral, Fla., Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., and other key U.S. missile bases. Exactly what the effect will be remains to be seen. The International Assn. of Machinists called the strike yesterday after turning down Convair's second contract offer. Work at two other big Convair plants in San Diego will be halted Monday. The stoppage will halt work on Atlas intercontinental missiles and Convair's new 880 and 660 jet transports, and the F106 fighter, but workers are expected back Tuesday. On Wednesday Convair offered 27,295 machinists an 11-cent wage offer, and the union turned it down. Then yesterday Convair made a new offer, under, which a 3-cent cost-of-living raise would be incorporated in the permanent wage, if the cost of living goes up. The union termed the offer "inadequate." The strike was then ordered at Canaveral, Vandenberg, Warren Air Force Base, Cheyenne, Wyo., and four facilities of Offutt Air Force Base, near Omaha, Neb. Stop-work meetings, callsd to discuss implementation of a strike fund, were called for employes of Five Fires Burn Out Of Control The Forest Service was faced with five uncontrolled fires today --two of them critical. Four hundred Indian firefighters were being brought by bus from northern Arizona to the Santa Ritas south of Tucson to battle two of the fires. "These men are in organized crews," Frank Clements, administrative officer for the Coronado National Forest, said. "We are setting up a camp for them in Box Canyon. One of the fires in the Santa Ritas now covers over 300 acres." In the meantime, about 50 soldiers from Ft Huachuca were trying to contain two fires in the Whetstone Mountains. One of these is described as critical. It rages through 200 acres. "We expect to get more fighters many die" because the agency fails to police new · drugs adequately. . Larrick said that in deciding whether to allow a manufacturer to place a new drug on the market the FDA weighed the drug's possible harmful effects against its benefits. Conceding that some FDA-approved drugs may have hurt or killed a few persons, Larrick said "Penicillin kills people occasionally, but it helps millions and millions." As an analogy, he cited an appendectomy--normally a simple operation but one which occasionally results in death. In weighing the risks vs. the benefits of new drugs, Larrick said FDA scientists, as a "basic philosophy," approved medicines they would be willing to have administered to their own families. Larrick told Senate antitrust and monopoly subcommittee yesterday he was convinced "the drug supply of this country--with relatively few exceptions indeed-is safe and effective." But he disclosed that 27 drugs were recalled on a nationalwide jasis last year because of "significant violations" of purety, potency and labeling standards. Larrick told UPI he had directed his bureau chiefs to conduct their own investigation even before Flemming ordered his in quiry. He said the FDA had a "reputation for hound's tooth honesty for j 54 years." Flemming announced his investigation to the Senate subcommittee. He said he considered the inquiry "a matter of great urgency." He said he would assign a special investigative force under his direction to conduct an immediate and "careful" inquiry. He also said a committee of outstanding scientists w o u l d b e 130,000 Demonstrate Against Pact TOKYO--UPI--An estimated 130,000 leftists staged a massive demonstration tonight in front of the U.S. Embassy, demanding renunciation of the U.S.-Japan Security Treaty and cancellation of President Eisenhower's scheduled visit June 19. Observers said it was one of the biggest anti-American demonstrations in Japan in years. But in contrast to previous protest demonstrations against the treaty and Eisenhower, there was no violence. Demonstrator* contented themselves with shouting anti-American ilogans, and dispersed peaceably. A 2,000-inan police cordon guarded the huge iron gates of the embassy, but the demonstrators never came closer than 300 feet. They streamed past the embassy compound and marched toward Shimbashi Railway Station and Parliament for other protest rallies. They included unionists, actors, office workers and other groups. Only a scattering of the radical student group blamed for much of the violence in earlier demonstrations participated. The Japanese Kyodo new* agency estimated a total of 130,000 filed past the embassy between 11 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. Thousands o f demonstrators also massed in front of the Diet (parliament) to s h o u t protests against the treaty and to demand! the resignation of pro-western Premier Nobusuke Kishi and dissolution of Parliament. About 8,000 riot police stood K ACTS LIKE FIGUREHEAD Nikita's Diatribe Indicates Soviet [i Now Under Control Of Military Arm ready to repel any effort to storm the Diet compound. Another 1,000 police were stationed inside the compound of Kishi's nearby official residence, scene of bloody clashes yesterday in which at least 200 persons were injured. THE EXTREME-LEFTIST Zen- gakuren s t u d e n t organization, which incited last night's outbreak, said today one if its members had died of injuries received in a brawl with police. The student, whose name was not given, was the first reported fatality of the recent wave of rioting. Police were unable to confirm the report. A U.S. Embassy spokesman said the demonstrations would have "no effect at all" on Eisenhower's planned visit. "As far as we know, the President will arrive on schedule," the spokesman said. The demonstrators shouted such phrases as "Don't come, Ike," "We are against Eisenhower's visit." "U.S. armed forces get out of Japan," and "We don't want Americans in Japan." By WILLIAM L. RYAN BERLIN --dfi--Nikita Khrushchev's latest diatribe against western leaders leaves the strong impression that the huge and mighty Soviet Union is under the control of military leaders. Khrushchev has been performing lately almost like a figurehead leader -- and one whose statements, in their broad outlines, have been dictated to him. The crude embellishments apparently are Khrushchev's own contribution--the name calling and threats. The man who oul- wardly is the sole boss--the premier of the Soviet Union and the first secretary of its Communist Party--acts like one overanxious to prove to superiors how willing he is to carry out their instructions. The latest Soviet proposals, as outlined by Khrushchev, will be viewed by western leaders as a .transparent cloak for the ambitions of Communist imperial- ism. Soviet communism will take a disarmament agreement only on its own terms, and these terms are clear in Khrushchev's statements. If disarmament Is to be policed, Khrushchev says, tl\is must be "exclusively for purposes of preserving peace between peoples, and not for suppressing peoples who are fighting for their independence and social progress and not for intervention in the internal affairs of stales." This is Communist jargon. The ·o-called struggle for "independence and social progress" is an Aesopian way of referring to the aggressive expansion of communism. Resistance from the .West to Communist attempts to envelop and imprison a nation becomes in this language, "intervention in the internal affairs" of the state in question. One faclor standing in the way of Communist expansion is Ihe network of American bases surrounding the Soviet Union. Khrushchev demands liquidation of "foreign bases." The Soviet Union has no bases that it considers "foreign," since it completely dominates the Communist states under its control. The rest of the Khrushchev proposal is couched in vague terms, but adds up to nothing more than he has said already. The big difference between the Khrushchev of today and the Khrushchev who first made the disarmament proposal before the United Nations last September is this: today's Khrushchev seems to have been pulled down off his private cloud and given a strict line to follow. If he deviates from this line, the signs indicate, the army will replace him with another man. There seems to be little other explanation of the curious series of recent events culminating in the explosion at the Summit in Paris last month. It is worthy of note that among these events has been * shakeup at top levels of the Communist Party which appears to leave Khrushchev stripped of his majority in the party's ruling presidium. Without the explanation of a Khrushchev loss of power, his violent assaults on western leaders would be completely baffling. The policies Khrushchev tried on his own to carry out since 1957 obviously would be impossible in the light of the insults he fires at President Eisenhower and other western leaders. But Khrushchev himself now seems to reveal the awesome political power of the Soviet armed forces. It is, says Khrushchev, within the competence and discretion of the Soviet armed forces to launch a nuclear war. This is the gravest and most sinister threat Khrushchev has yet uttered in a long series of blustering threats. One huge placard read. Likes Only Golf and War."

Udall, former Graham County Superior Court judge, will become a member of the State Supreme Court June 15. Udall was appointed yesterday by Gov. Paul Fannin to fill the high court vacancy created by the death earlier this week of Udall's brother, Justice Levi S. Udall. "I am indeed pleased that Judge Udall could take this appointment," Fannin said. "He is eminently qualified, and I am confident that he will carry on in the tradition of his distinguished brother." The new justice resigned his Superior Court position two years ago to become president of the California Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon). Udall was born in Eagar in 1893. He attended St. John's High School and the Gila Academy at Thatcher, now Eastern Arizona Junior College. He received his law degree from the University of Arizona in 1924. A veteran of both World wars, Udall also is a former attorney for Graham County and has served two terms in the State Legislature. He served 10 years on the Superior Court bench. Udall is a Republican. He will fill his brother's vacancy until a successor is elected in November. He could be a candidate in the Old Age Health Bill Nears Okay WASHINGTON-UPI-A limited program of government-subsidized medical care for about 1.5 million needy old folks today appeared almost certain of House approval, probably within two weeks. The big question mark hanging over the election-year issue was what will happen when the measure reaches the Senate. The House Ways and Means Committee yesterday approved the medical care subsidy program after rejecting far different and far more sweeping proposals backed by organized labor and by the Eisenhower administration. When the Senate takes up the matter, Chairman Pat McNamara (D-Mich.) of the Senate subcommittee on the aged was prepared to push his labor-backed plan to extend social security benefits to include medical care for about 12 million persons over 65. The administration plan, which would aid 12 million oldsters through federal and state subsidies, also has been introduced in the Senate. Chou, Nikita To Visit Cuba HAVANA--UPI--Red China's Premier Chou En-lai, as well as Russia's Premier Nikita Khrushchev, has "agreed in principle" to visit Cuba this year, it was reported today. Informed sources said Chou accepted an invitation offered by the Cuban Army's i n - | ~ - -- " ~~ spector general, William Galvez, communist influence In Latin Rodriguez, when he visited Red' Peiping recently. The invitation was originally intended for Communist boss Mao Tse-tung, but he turned it down Ike Goes Back To Point Reunion WASHINGTON--UPI-- President Eisenhower took a sentimental journey today to join his old comrades at the 45th reunion of the famed West Point class of 1915, nicknamed "The Class The Stars Fell On." The 1915 class won its nickname because nearly half the 115 members who served in World War II became generals. The reunion could bring together two of the because of his advanced age, the sources said. The report of a possible visit by Chou came on the heels of the Moscow announcement t h a t Khrushchev will pay a visit to this country on a date not yet set. Diplomatic observers said the Soviet Premier probably will not make final plans until he finds out whether he can line up invitations from other Latin-American nations for an extended tour south of the border. Diplomatic relations between Russia and Cuba, broken off soon after President Fulgencio Batista seized power here in 1952, were renewed May 7. Faure Chomon, leader of the radical leftist "revolutionary directorate," has been appointed ambassador to Moscow. Russia has not yet designated an ambassador to Cuba. In Washington, U.S. diplomatic officials and congressmen today viewed Khrushchev's announced plan to visit Cuba as the opening move in a new drive to spread America. Sen George D. Aikcn (R-Vt) said the visit, announced by the Soviet Tass news agency yesterday, was a "clear attempt" by Khrushchev to gain a foothold for Soviet influence in the Americas on the United States' doorstep. The lawmaker said Khrushchev also would try to "further identify" Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro with Communism. Latin-American diplomats took the view that Khrushchev had been seeking such an invitation ever since the Summit collapse. They said they weren't surprised by his quick acceptance and predicted an attempt to undermine U.S. influence in the hemisphere.

He is attending the eighth annual Conference on Juvenile Delinquency in hopes of finding answers to the tribe's first large- scale troubles with rebellious children. "They come back from schools off the reservation with the same insolence I understand yon find in eastern cities where the children of immigrants learn American ways, then scorn their parents," he said.

William N. Hardill, 18, Phoenix, apparently went to sleep in his foreign-make car which spun off the road and turned over several times. The accident took place roughly halfway between Tucson and Nogales at 3:15 a.m. yesterday. j He was a freshman at the uni- j versify and lived here at 547 N.

The Reds fired more than 500 rounds of high explosives in a half hour concentrated barrage. The heavy Communist shelling came amid increasing belief in Nationalist quarters that the Peiping regime may order a new attack on the Nationalist offshore islands before or during President Eisenhower's state visit to Nationalist China June 18-19. K's Plans May Lose To Blast MOSCOW-UPI-The disarmament plan Premier Nikita Khrushchev wanted to emphasize at his press conference yesterday may be lost in the wave of western reaction to his blast at President Eisenhower, observers here said today. The Soviet press gave prominent play today to "favorable foreign reactions" to Khrushchev's disarmament proposals, making no mention of his attack on the President. Observers here had little doubt, however, that it was Khrushchev's remarks about Eisenhower that would get the headlines abroad. The Premier appeared in effect to have written off negotiations with the Eisenhower administration completely, although he maintained he wanted to c o n t i n u t cultural contacts and said he was always ready to discuss the idea of a new Summit meeting. Moscow observers said Khrushchev's remarks appeared to represent a "hardening of the Soviet foreign policy line."--specifically, a new attempt to force the abandonment of America's f o r e i g n bases. The Communist organ Pravda carried an article today denouncing Vice President Richard M. N i x o n ' s "provocative activities against peace," m e a n i n g his speech at the S o u t h e a s t Asia Treaty Conference in Washington. The article said the s p e e c h proved Nixon to be an "enemy of Summitry." "Can there be a more convincing argument proving the guilt of Washington's leaders in the collapse of the Paris meeting?..." Pravda demanded. "Nixon unmasked himself as an opponent of t h e P a r i s heads-of-government conference, too." The Pravda article did not refer directly to Khrushchev's anti- Nixon comments press conference. at yesterday'* INSIDE THE CITIZEN The body is at Rally's Funeral Home here, bat funeral services will be in Phoenix.
