Air Force captain to day denied he gave military in- 'ormation to East Germany in 1960 but admitted visiting East Berlin lo go drinking with two lommunist officials. Capt. Joseph P. Kauffman, 43, ooked squarely at the panel ol eight officers trying him and said: "I did not reveal any informa- .ion detrimental to the U. S. Air r orce and I sincerely mean that, never had any intention of evci ·eturning to' Germany' and the inly reason I'm here now is bc- :ause of this.' K-iuffman took the stand lo defend himself as the trial entered its second week. He said he visited East Berlin bars with two men but only because he gave his word as an officer he would return to the Communist zone. He came to Germany in late September, 1960, on leave between assignments from Sondcr- strom Air Base, Greenland, lo Castle AFB, Calif. Kauffman is accused of pass- secrets to Communist East ing German agents and agreeing to work for the Communists. Kauffman took the sland after The bachelor captain said he originally planned to allend the Ocloberfest in Munich but decided to go to Berlin instead since it was near Hamburg. He said he did not know there were restrictions on travel to Berlin by members of the U. S. forces and bought a train ticket without difficulty. About one hour out of Hamburg three individuals in gray uniforms entered the train and asked me for my passport," he said. "1 showed them my orders, which is a passport for military peo- ale, but they took me off at the nexl. stop." Kauffman said he was taken what appeared to be a police station where he waited two-and- i-half hours. Nobody questioned lim. He later was taken to a :ousc where a uniformed man introduced himself as the local commandant, he said. "I objected to my treatment nd told him I was merely travel- ng lo Berlin on leave." Kauffman said. "He said he had to contact somebody on this and eft." K a u f f m a n said he spent the night in a chair and the next morning a heavy-set man who a small blue notebook belonging|"inlrocluccd himself as a teacher to him was admitted in evidence of philosophy" escorted him in a "The subjects of inquiry eluded what I thought of the President of the United States, what the feeling of the people was toward the President, how many aircraft we had at Sondcrstrom Air Base and what our mission was in Greenland." Kauffman said he only an swcred questions "concerning my name, rank and serial number.' The two men left and another in a blue uniform, entered and began asking the same genera' questions, he said. Kauffman said no documents ol any kind were given him to reac or sign. His bag and wallet was searched and he was left in adjoining bedroom for the night. None of his interrogators had revealed their nationality by this .ime, he said. Kuaffman took the stand after n Air Force agent, Richard Beyea, identified a slim blue pocket notebook as one found in Kauff- nan's Atwater. Calif., apartment ,n a search last Dec. 8.

FLEMING United Press International BERLIN, ttll'l) -- T h e East German Communists fold the Unitec States today it would have to get out of Berlin to win an agreemen on access to the divided city. The official Communist party newspaper Neues Deiilschlam said in a front-page editorial that East Germany has no intentioi of acting as a policeman to guarantee the present traffic to the iso latcd Wetsern outpost. It said negotiations on Berlin could be carried on only on the jasis of the recognition of Easi icrman sovereignty. Observers said the new expres sion of East Germany's position dashed hopes here that the new round of Soviet-American discus sions in Washington today wouk solve the Berlin problem. West Berlincrs were fortified ge from Gen. Lucius D. Clay that the United States wil: rotecl the Communist-encirclec city's interests in the Washington talks. West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt, n a radio speech Sunday, said here was no reason for concern over the U.S. plan to settle the Berlin crisis that will be presented o Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin at the talks. Criticizes Reaction Brandt criticized West German ·eaction to the plan and said ;ome Germans were acting as if they could not trust the United states. But he said it was necessary 'or Germans to be vigilant because "no one is more of an expert in German problems than the Germans themselves." Clay returned to Berlin from Washington in an attempt to quell ilarm in the divided city over his ·esignation a n d West German ears that the Washington talks might weaken the West Berliners 1 josition in the cold war. "I can speak for the President md the U.S. government when I ay that they never have been lore committed to the principles f the defense and protection of \'est Berlin," Clay said in a state- lent on his arrival at West Berin's Tempelhof Airfield. Clay, President Kennedy's per- onal adviser in Berlin, pledged bat the United States would not a party to any agreement that any way would weaken West Berlin's ties to the West. Ruling Aids Is WASHINGTON (UPI)-The Su preme Court issued a ruling today strengthening the federal govern ment's hand in civil rights efforts to safeguard Negro voting. It upheld a Mississippi ruling that federal courts may block a state prosecution if the government charges it was aimed at in- imidating prospective voters. The court action came a few minutes after Byron R. White was sworn in as an associate justice with President Kennedy and iVhite's family among the onlook- ;rs. White took no part in today's court actions. The court also: Let stand a ruling that .the Hatch Act ban against political activity applies lo a state conservation director if his agency receives federal grants.

Sfafe Deparfmenf Denounces Rumor Of Berlin Army Cuf WASHINGTON (UPD-- The to win Soviet agreement to a set- mans were undermining Rusk's State Department today denounced as wholly inaccurate a rcpor [hat the United Slates had pro posed a 3,500-man reduction in .he Western garrison in Berlin as Russians. State Department spokesman Jncoln White called a special lews conference and announcer .0 newsmen that "no such pro- losal on troop reductions has icen made." The statement was made only few hours before Secretary of Stale Dean Rusk was scheduled o meet with Soviet Ambassador \naloly F. Dobrynin in the first if a new round of talks on Berlin. White referred specifically to a inblishcd report from Bonn that he United States was proposing possible reduction in the num- er of U.S., British and French roops in West Berlin from 12,500 o 9,000. Blow al Mnrnlc He said the "piece in the pa- ters this morning is' wholly in- iccnralc." Officials added privately (hat it vas "remarkable" that sources n Bonn would seek, as they put "undermine the morale of lie people of Berlin." They re-, erred lo the sources who provid- 'd the material for the news .lory. The Allies have been bickering iver how far to go in an effort tlement which would case recurring tensions over Berlin. West Germany expressed concern over some of Ihe concessions Rusk was expected to offer. Chan- :rt of a settlement offer to the ce i| or Konrad Adenauer was particularly displeased can proposals to give Communist East Germany somewhat more stalus in the area. American officials emphasized that the United States had no intention of retreating from its firm determination that the Western Allies must remain in West Berlin and have free access to the Red- encircled city. Scraping Hai-rel's Hnttnnl T h e Kennedy administration, liowevcr, appeared to be scraping the bottom of the barrel in ·\ search for minor concessions to ,rade S o v i e t Premier Nikita Khrushchev for renewed Russian guarantees of the Allied position. Reports from Bonn, where news if U. S. intentions was leaked to he press, said Husk was reviving i I!)59 American offer to reduce he 12,non-man Allied garrison in Vest Berlin by about 25 per cent. The detailed reports from West Germany of U.S. plans, following submission to the Bonn Foreign Office of two confidential U.S. locumcnls last week, has severely strained the atmosphere between he two allies. U.S. officials said iremnlurc disclosures by the Ger-i points of Chinese foreign policy as presented by Premier Chou En-Lai. Although Chou was believed lo liavc opened the Congress wilh a speech March 27, Ibis was the first word on what he had said The communique said Chou attacked "the seizure of Taiwan bj U. S. imperialism and its crea Lion of 'two Chinas,' " a charge that Red China has made fro quenlly for years. Chou proclaimed "unswerving' 'riendship wilh the Soviet Union and the rest of the Communis bloc. He called on the Commu- tist world to "unite all forces .hat can be united" againsl the United States and what it stands 3r. The communique said C h o u called on the people to work still larder. He. admitted that tremendous efforts were needed to overcome 'the natural calamities and economic difficulties" on the Chinese mainland. As expected, Chou gave no de- ails of the difficulties although the Vest has been aware of many if them for some time. Red Chila has contracled for mass pur- bases of whcal from Canada to ecd its hungry millions. Pledging friendship with t h c oviet Union, Ihe communique id nol touch on Red China's trained relations with Russia vhich have led to a reduction of ioviet aid. negotiating position. A main feature of Rusk's plan calls for internationalization of the access routes to Berlin, with Communist East Gel-many being given some voice in the arrangement. This is particularly displeasing to the West Germans. Non-Aggression Pacts Other features are: --An exchange of Soviet-American pledges not lo spread nuclear weapons and know-how to other countries, an idea designed to lessen Soviet fears of resurgent German militarism. -- Reciprocal n o n-aggression pledges between NATO and members of the Communist Warsaw Pact, which would have the effect of freezing the division of Germany and recognizing Poland's wstwar acquisition of some German territory. --Creation of East-Wesl German committees to deal with :rade, communications and cul- ural relations. Britain has firmly endorsed Ihe J.S. plan, France, which opposes :my negotiations, is firmly in Ade- uiucr's corner. Nightie-Clad Girl Hauled !n!o Station PASADENA, Calif., (UPI)-An attractive 28-year-old divorcee charged Sunday she was "paraded through the Pasadena police station in a silk nightgown-and nothing else"--because of a driving violation. Mrs. Dorothy Makray charged that three police officers entered her home about 6 a.m. Saturday and woke her to arrest her for failure to appear in court on a charge of driving with an expired driver's license. "1 was groggy with sleep--too groggy to understand," Mrs. Makray said. She charged that the policemen dragged her out of bed, pushed her onto the sidewalk, and into a police car. She said they handcuffed her and "paraded me through Pasadena police station in a silk night gown--and nothing else." Mrs. Makray said she asked a policewoman in the police car to "cover me up, but she ignored ie." "When we got to the police station," she said, "they made me walk barefooted and with nothing on but the silk nightgown in front of all those officers." Police said there was nothing unusual about making a routine Iraffic warrant arrest at 6 a.m. "It's standard procedure," said LI. Kenneth Olsen. "Most warrants are for night time service." Alert Pilot Foils Airliner Hijacking Into East Berlin AMSTERDAM (UPI --) A dis- irunllod cook, waving a harmless signal pistol, tried today to hijack i Dutch airliner with 51 passen- ;ers aboard and force the pilot to .ake it to Communist East Berlin. The pilot foiled the attempt and anded the plane safely in Amsterdam. KLM Royal Dutch Airline officials said the cook, a Portuguese who had been fired by the airline, burst into the cockpit of the DC7C ? ive minutes after it took off on a light to Recife, Brazil, from Amsterdam. The man jammed a signal or 'noise" pistol--which fires blanks inly--against the pilot's neck and laid he wanted the four-engined aircraft diverted to East Berlin. The quick-thinking pilot, un- iware that the weapon was harm- ess, confused the cook by faking 'engine trouble" that, he said, made it necessary to land at the icarest airport. He then turned iround and landed. Officials said the 50 other pas- engers--most of them bound for outh America--were unaware of lie drama in the pilot's cabin ntil airport police boarded the lane and arrested the cook.
